The Redskins Rule
 
I thought this streak ended in 2004? Apparently not.

I'm sure we're going to get an earful about it tonight. :doh:

WHO CARES!?!?!?!

The only thing that matters is the Burgundy and Gold and Monday Night. We need our team to play tough with all these injuries, put (Not so) Big Ben on his ass, and impress on MNF in front of the home crowd!

HTTR!!!

It did, but the "rule" is now being refined in order to persist. Here's the most important part to take from the story:

"In 2004, the Redskins lost to the Packers 28-14, suggesting Bush should have lost to John Kerry. [B]Hirdt changed the way the rule is applied [/B]to have it refer to the previous winner of the popular vote, not the electoral vote . . .
[B]Is that cheating? Perhaps, but keep in mind that this is a rule that was discovered only during efforts to help fill the airwaves during a football game[/B]."

I thought it was worth discussing with a more civilized approach.

No direct correlation, skins will win, and Obama will be president. If there ever was a streak, it ended last election. If our next election comes when were on bye week does an independent win?

Re: The Redskins Rule
 
How about thsi more recent trend?

1992: Opening day loss, Democrat win
1996: Opening day loss, Democrat win
2000: Openning day win, Republican win
2004: Opening day win, Republican win
2008: Opening day loss, ???

This model is flawed,
when the Skins earn enough points to win, O'bama will want to redistribute them to the Steelers who did not earn them, and thus......the win..........

There's no such thing as mixing politics and sports and trying to talk about it civilly, it's like trying to a-bomb someone nicely. It just doesn't happen.
