I am very opinionated and focused on the subjects of National and global events, food, economy, industry, human rights and war. Among many other topics that are very important in this world.
Maybe you will be surprised that, in fact, I do agree with you and your decision to point out that sports and other forms of entertainment serve as a distraction to the general population,OVERWHELMINGLY. However, I am not asleep. I keep close tabs on the events in the world around me and am aware... I know many other are NOT.
In most cases I would not choose to author a thread on something as offtopic as this, but I felt it was important news to get out at the time, because of how unfair and HUGE it was in the world of sports & history.
Out of all the threads on ATS I highly doubt this 1 thread will serve to disrupt an entire network of conspiracy-related threads. It's healthy to be entertained once and a while too. And as such, there exists a forum for sports on ATS...

Hopefully this will be the catalyst. The only publicly owned team gets shafted by the corporate national football league.
This is a direct strike against the people. I don't think there is any conspiracy here but none the less you have corporate America V.S. regular people.
If this ref thing doesn't get resolved, it's clear indication to me that the national football league cares little about its viewers and their intelligence. They care more about a little money in their pocket. Which is funny because if they lose us as viewers, their bottom line is going to drop out under them in a hurry.
For my own personal input, it should have been an offensive pass interference call on Tate. The video's clearly show him pushing the Green Bay guy in the back before supposedly catching the touchdown pass.
Rules are there for a reason, if you don't follow them, what's the point in watching?

looked like a touchdown to me.
both players had a hand on the ball.
when both players came down on the ground, the ball was on top of the seattle player. the green bay player rolled off of the seattle player after they were down.
it looked to me like they both had possesion of the ball when they came down. call goes to the passing team.
