That's the beautiful thing about conspiracies. Nothing is sacred, not even the biggest upset in NFL history. Now we certainly can't replay the game, and the Giants won. If that were the Pats drive, they'd be talking about a tainted perfect season.(referring to the ~50 seconds of time the Giants were "given" during the final minute 1:35 of the game, during which they scored the winning TD) What this truly becomes is an issue of people being more vigilant than before. Maybe there are discrepancies in the '72 season. But this is even more proof that nothing is sacred in sports anymore. We LOOK INTO steroids, when before, we'd just sit in awe, as 6-7 year olds, staring up at the television as teams dominated the NFL. And you know what? Those were simpler times. When we took things at face value. It shows the beauty of what was, but the significance of what is. We don't respect the dynasties, we tear them down. You know why there aren't any big dynasties since teams like the Bears of the 80s or the steel curtain of the 70s? because we stopped looking at football as a game and started looking at it as an investment. We invest our valuable time into this game and if we're given an excuse to lobby for a "refund," we will. Time is money these days. And lord knows we don't want to waste our money on something that isn't to our satisfaction.
