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.

Re: The Redskins Rule

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. Hirdt changed the way the rule is applied to have it refer to the previous winner of the popular vote, not the electoral vote . . .
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."

You can't change a rule to keep it going. Sorry, streak over. Skins and Obama!

Re: The Redskins Rule

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

Re: The Redskins Rule

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?

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.
