My formal protest to the Commissioner of the OAFFL

You're right...without facial expressions, sarcasm is nearly invisible online. However, I thought my comments about the Ref's contact lenses and Mike Tice being an idiot were good hints.

Anyways, thank you for the condolences. It was difficult to go from celebrating victory to agonizing defeat within seconds....and then realizing I had lost on a technicality...just made it that much worse.


But...feh....it's just a game. :*)

It was precisely this line:
4. Mike Tice is an idiot.

that led me to question whether or not it was sarcastic. No stretch there.

yeah, I was wondering how he could choose to review the stupid lateral/forward pass play, which really wouldn't have helped if it went either way except for himn to lose a timeout.

To his defense, Philly did get out there rather swiftly to make their PAT....but all you're gonna lose is the timeout, so take the damn chance!

Yeah I got the sarcasm and thought it was pretty clearly a joke. I think Cornbread is right, some people were trying to get over their losses for the week.

And Cornbread has been right quite a bit in the early season, I'm not betting against this guy anymore.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!
