So there must be a reason they don't strictly enforce it then right? Or is every team going to start fully disclosing their injuries if the Packers do it? I think not. You still have not explained what incentive the Packers have to be the only team to do it that way other than to make you feel better.


The teams are nothing if the integrity of the game is lost.

The league instituted the injury reporting rule for a reason. That reason was to protect the integrity of the game.


The league instituted the rule to put gambles on an even playing field. It took away the advantage that a few insiders and their buddies had over the rest of the schmoes.

Do you really the NFL, Inc really cares where the average fan sitting on his sofa drinking a beer, eating his nachos and waving the giant foam finger knows if the Dallas RT hurt his pinky in practice on Wed or not? I don;t think so.

They do care if the betting line is toying with because of rumors being spread about that Eli has a bust wing and is going to miss the next game.

Yep, because knowing player X has an injured Y boosts the integrity of the game immensely. I mean, how else will players know who to hit and where to hit without that precious injury report?

I'm convinced the report is for oddsmakers and oddsmakers only.

Just shut Bulaga down already. He's been playing subpar anyway. Scope his knee, and fix his hip and get him on the road to rehab. That way he will be ready next season for training camp. Makes no sense for him limp through the season.


Agreed. He will NOT be ready for the playoffs. Something similar totally took us out of rhythm last year when we needed offensive consistency.

So, the Packers reach a season game high in rushing yards in a game Bryan Bulaga misses a good majority of the game. Interesting. I hope Bulaga heals up quick. The OL depth is not so hot.

It does irritate the hell out of me, but I think the integrity of the game is more important to the league than my personal angst.

It's been made official

Quote:
GREEN BAY - Packers offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga is the latest player lost for the season.

Bulaga succumbed to a hip injury, according to a release by the team on Monday. He had started the first nine games of the season for the Packers at right tackle.

In a corresponding move, Green Bay re-signed linebacker Vic So'oto. So'oto played in seven games for the Packers in 2011 and played in four contests for the Oakland Raiders this season before being let go.

I'll bet he intentionally lied just to mess with the fans. [grin1]

Zero2Cool (3h) : Packers defense has a red zone INT in each of the last 3 games... Hyde with two of them. (One being the clutch 4thQ INT vs DET in Week 17)
Zero2Cool (4h) : Randall Cobb, Damarious Randall, Quentin Rollins, James Starks, Clay Matthews, Ty Montgomery & Jared Cook. OUT
Zero2Cool (4h) : Packers inactive list when they lost 33-32 to the Falcons week 8.
Zero2Cool (5h) : There is no emphasis, it's just a little bit of info. Take it or leave it. No harm.
Smokey (5h) : Zero, I believe that you and some others place too much emphasis upon data. no harm intended.
Zero2Cool (5h) : It’s the 1st time since 1970 all 4 conference championship teams finished the regular season on winning streaks of 4+ games
TheKanataThrilla (5h) : Salt mine. Love it.
TheKanataThrilla (5h) : The refs kept that game close. We should have blown them out early.
DarkaneRules (6h) : Hyde and Gunter are special and I'm hopeful D Ran gets back to where he can be
mi_keys (6h) : That whole forum is a salt mine. It's beautiful.

uffda udfa (12h) : Great news.
Zero2Cool (15h) : Jordy has "legitimate hope" to play, per @RobDemovsky.
Zero2Cool (16h) : Packers had one call on defense if called, no issue, wans't called. I didn't watch OL so dunno. I watched WR's
Zero2Cool (16h) : Dallas OL had some holds weren't called and 2 defensive holds, not called.
uffda udfa (16h) : I think the Pi vs just a holding call is a legit complaint. Terrible call.
