NFL to Porter: You Were Right


The National Football League has decided not to fine the Steelers’ Jerry Porter for comments he made following his team’s upset victory over Indianapolis last weekend.

After the game, Porter complained that everyone, including the referees wanted Peyton Manning to win the game and went on to say, “I felt that they were like 'We don't even care if you know we're cheating. We're cheating for them.' "

Porter was referring to the clear interception by his teammate Troy Polamalu with about five minutes to play that was reversed into an incomplete pass by referee Pete Morelli.

He had a point.

There is no way the league can be happy with this season’s playoffs. Michael Vick and Manning are home. The wild card round was overshadowed by the BCS. The Patriots are gone. There really isn’t a major market team left.

If the Colts had come back to win that game, it would have been great story in an otherwise uneventful weekend. Instead, this week’s conference championship games will probably be among the lowest rated ever.
