I'm sure a lot of Eagles fans will disagree with this but I'm going to point out some oddities I just thought of after listening to GroundZero on the
Radio (for those that don't listen to Mr Lewis, I suggest you check out his program, it's right up ATS's alley).
So, we have 2 teams, the PATRIOTS vs EAGLES. Both are representative of the United States. One being what many consider the backbone of the country
(Patriots) and the other being a symbol of many things, one being the national bird, possibly symbolizing the nation. Both symbols are integral to
the US and without either of them we would be a different nation.
I remember some years ago a call by our president for patriotism and for Americans to do their patriotic duties (some being to over-look gov
over-reach) and he did this after a national disaster and then passing a law/act, named after patriots, The Patriot Act. In this very year, a young
quarterback lead his team to the first Superbowl victory and he was basically the ideal "all american" guy and has kept that image with a beautiful
wife, being well behaved, being well spoken, is caring, etc. He seems too good to be real (looking back but we didn't know then). IMHO he is the
modern day CAPTAIN America.
So after the attacks the nation goes to war and the Patriots win the biggest sporting event in the nation. That is kind of subliminal and has an
inspiring message for the nation on some level.
On the other hand, we have the Eagles, from the City of Independence (could that mean people working as individuals/loaners in TPTB's eyes??) also
called the City of Brotherly Love (some say that tounge-in-cheek), who always seem to have potential and it seems like they get a running start and
then they get tripped from behind (some of the ref's have lost a lot of games for the Eagles and they could have made some big games had they had fair
calls for them and honest calls against the other teams). So this team has always struggled and it was like a tease for the fans, we'd hear "could
this be the year??".
I just heard that Philadelphia can be translated into "Lover of the serpent" or "lover of the sun" and Eagles often eat snakes and they soar near the
While Philly had a lot of heart breaking seasons, even seeing fellow state team Steelers winning 2 rings and also having many good seasons, the
Patriots became the darlings of the NFL I think largely due to the charisma of Mr Brady, winning ring after ring after ring and even getting to the
game 2x where they lost to the GIANTS (which I believe has meaning in itself, and also being from NYC where the towers fell).
So now the we have a new president and there are a lot of people who absolutely hate him while others are totally opposite. The president has talked
about knowing Brady and that they are "friends" (he probably likes his wife, lol, who doesn't
) and I think he was rooting for NE. A lot of Trump
supporters are Patriots (real American people, not players). NE has been plauged with cheating scandals with the latest being deflate gate, so Trump
knows how they were feeling with the press coverage, and Bilecheck has a history of being a tough (read "a real dick") coach. Trump would probably
either be great friends with Bill or they would hate each other b/c they seem almost as if cut from same cloth.
Don't forget all the scandel and controversy of all the NE players from the murderer who ended up killing himself (entire thing was suspicious
especially the suicide), players shooting at people, carrying guns in night club, beating girlfriends or wives, drug use, etc. Now a lot of this can
be chalked up to young, dumb, strong and having lots of money so good judgement can be lost quickly in some situations, especially if alcohol of drugs
are involved. It just seemed that they always had lots of negative media coverage from stealing plays (lip reading) to deflating balls, and probably
more that we don't know of.
Now the Eagles seem like they could represent the country as a whole in some way, or even the military with the Eagle as mascot and thus maybe
represent the military industrial complex and even more, the deep state. Philadelphia also hosted the DNC in 2016 and all the scandal behind that and
the beginning if the Russia controversey, so maybe that represents something, maybe the deep state sending a message (the impossible win or a team
that was a major underdog - though Trump was the underdog - but not it could be some message to Trump that Philly is beating the reigning champs)..
Around 2005-2006 I realized that the NFL was just a sports drama being played out like the WWE or some TV sitcom and I stopped watching. I looked at
a lot of plays, errors and a lot of things that should never happen that kept happening and it just made no sense that it wasn't scripted. Listening
to the players talk was a big give away as well. When they started putting women on the side line and in locker rooms as reporters and having them
talk about plays and other things that were just SOOO out of "sex character" (yeah I'm sterotyping and being sexist but this is true) that I could no
longer watch games or even watch sports interviews. It seemed like a 600lb jabba the hut interviewing fitness gurus and acting like he knows exactly
what they are talking about (and they were always way over weight so it wasn't a recent thing - if you get the point here comparing this to women
covering the NFL). So obviously there is a major political agenda being pushed within the NFL and especially ESPN so no more for me thank you...
So with the subtle hidden political and social messages being pushed, it made me think that the way the Eagles won may have a message as well. I got
the feeling that it may have been a warning that war was coming (maybe to the US either by martial law, invasion, or civil war - or degrees and
combinations of these).
I'm going to continue thinking about what happened and re-watch the game with this mind-set and see if I can come up with any other ideas or
viewpoints, but I think they played this game out to make some kind of a statement. One of those might have been that they (the US gov or deep state)
is coming after American patriots (and possibly president??) and maybe that the patriots days are over? Having a team that hasn't won in 52 years
beating a team that was so good I think is also part of the message, maybe it has to do with a previous war like Korea. We signed the armistice in
Oh, there were also a record number of million dollar bets placed on the eagles and they didn't even take the point spread that was being offered (4.5
pts I believe).. There were also A LOT of other large bets for the Eagles as well, so I wonder how LV, AC and the bookies are doing today..? I wonder
if any of this has to do with the Dow and stock market the day after??
I'd like to hear what others thought. I heard that there was some odd symbolism with the half time show and there certainly was with the commercials
but I'm not going to get into them ATM though they probably deserve to be covered and maybe in their own thread.?
