Who don't? The NFL

Leave it up to the NFL to try and put a stop to a 25-year Saints tradition just days after the franchise has reached the pinnacle of their success.

NFL is the villain

Big time sports has become a corporate playground where only a select few are invited to sit on the swings.

A cash register run

This isn't a move to preserve or protect the NFL's "image," whatever the hell that means. It's simple cash grab, and it stinks.

Wake up Goodell

Taking a piece of local vernacular away from an area is the height of arrogance.

Fools in suits

The league that's usually at the top of sports' PR pyramid is making itself look like a bunch of Scrooges.

NFL bully

The NFL should be as vigilant in protecting its own main product as it is in stamping out rogue T-shirts.

Slogan ownership

Who has a claim on the "Who Dat" slogan? Vote now...

Competing with history

Fans may harp on how the Colts threw away an opportunity to make history, but the only history that truly matters will be with the team left holding the trophy on Feb. 7.

What's wrong with Indy?

There really is nothing to hate about these Colts.

Blame Peyton

The Colts are like the girl who is the head of the Math Club, we all know she's going places, but the cheerleader grabs our eyes.

Katrina changes everything

Unless you have a real rooting interest in the Colts, it's considered almost un-American to root against the Saints.

What's not to like?

It is easy to admire both the Colts and the Saints. After all, they aren't the Patriots.

Exciting under the radar

Yeah, the Colts are boring in the traditional sense. But if you look under the hood and check out the way that engine really runs.

The Saints easier to like

How can you not root for the Saints, and New Orleans, to win? But that doesn't have to mean you don't like the Colts.

Tighten up

Sloppy football games certainly have drama, but unless your mom still drives you to practice there's no excuse for careless play.

Bye bye Brett?

Should Brett Favre retire? (Sorry, we had to ask.)

Shock value

These pathways are largely modulated by dopamine, and are also responsible for the pleasurable effects of 'high-reward' stimuli, such as drugs, sex and gambling.

Bloopers just as compelling

Forget the triumphant John Facenda narration and Sam Spence music-- yesterday's NFC Championship game was more attuned to Elmer J. Fudd and "Yakety Sax"

Great games, not mistakes

A classic is decided by which team consistently makes the plays they need, not by where a fumble happens to occur and who happens to fall on it.

Kazoo music football

And while the Colts and Jets put on an efficient display of NFL football, the real fun was the slapstick over in the NFC.

Rubberneck theater

It's about unpredictability -- why we've always loved Brett Favre. For his impossible touchdown passes and his interception-defying throws.

A contact drunk

Where floodwaters once stood, a tide of emotion rises in New Orleans.

People love drama

Productivity in offices will be way down tomorrow and it won't because of Peyton Manning's rocket arm.

AFC precision vs. NFC drama

Which game provide more excitement on Championship Sunday? Weigh in...

Manning shows precision

Peyton figured out Ryan's team and found his range and rhythm for one of his most satisfying days as a pro.
