Max Kellerman is just trolling to create controversy so people will pay attention to him.

I didn't watch the clip.


But let's say for the sake of discussion the consensus is Brady got lucky on a play or plays in that game. (I didn't watch the clip but I'm guessing Kellerman's referring to this game and not Brady's career: you can't chalk that up to luck.) So for the sake of discussion let's say the most insanely lucky play (one that cannot be attributed to a mental mistake by a defender on what would otherwise be a game winning play) happened during that game and everyone concludes Brady is lucky.


My question is this: Does it matter? Every team that goes to the Super Bowl has to have several factors align for them. First, they have to be good. But they also need a couple breaks to go their way. I promise you this: as many Rams fans as there are who agree about the non-call, there will not be a single one who will apologize for it. And you damn sure won't find any of their players suggesting they are not legitimate NFC Champs.


So my question is, so what if Brady got lucky? If you're a Pats fan do you care? If you're a Chiefs fan does it somehow make losing easier to accept?

Seems the four officials who ignored the pass interference and helmet to helmet penalties against the Rams were all from Southern California. While the NFL has in the past at least made attempts to avoid such cases in selecting their officials in playoff and super bowl games why did they not make such an effort for this game. Already many fans and sports reporters believe this was a fixed game because of the blatant nature of the penalty and the time in the game in which it took place. To allow four officials from the same area as one of the two teams in the game only adds to the perception of an NFL conspiracy to ensure the LA team goes to the Super Bowl.
