Raptors Last Game

Ok I like Contagion have my thoughts on last nights dissapointing loss that ended our season. I will not be as PC as he is and you can read this also over on the UIF Fans online website @ but I will post here also. Please read with an open mind and make your decisions after reading all of the post.

On Sat night Rockford fans witnessed one of the worst played, coached games in the short Raptor history.

Now it is no secret that the Metro Centere were not expecting the Raptors to get this far. They have a complete renovation that must be done by the Hockey team The Rockford Icehogs that the city just recently purchased.
So to anyone else but loyal Raptors fans the news of 2 weeks of playoffs and the possibility of a Championship game, this was not good news. The new baby of Rockford and one of the legacy projects that he will be remembered for was not going to be on time.
All thanks to the Raptors.

It all started when it was seen Coach Richards state early in the 1st that "We're not going to win this game"
Now that can mean the playing, the motovation, or just the lack of effort by the team.
THis can slide.

Now early in the 2nd quarter after an interception and a fumble and just down and out bad decisions a Raptor came up and stated that the was "the worst coached game by Rik Richards in history"
Again this could be just a fustrated player.

Now look at the turnovers. There were as many picks and fumbles in this game as all season long and QB Ben Sankey just looked like he was going through the motions while Dusty Burk was running out of the pocket and running to get the 1st down rather then sit in the pocket and take the sack.
Again maybe just having an off night. Then why wasnt the backup QB put in? In any other type of sport if a player is not playing to the best of his ability they are taken out. Why wasnt this done?

Now the officating.(sp) Anyone who was there could have seen that calls were not made and ball spotting was no where near the spot of the end of the play. One other interesting thing. I made a comment to one of the ref's that if he was in Bloomington back pocket that he needs to give us a play or 2 so as not to be so suspect. He commented to me and people around heard it "Hey i am a local guy, I went to school at Boylan" This is interesting as the one person that needed the season to be done Mayor Larry Morrisey also went to school at Boylan.

Lastly at the after party people were of course discussing the game and people close to some of the coaching staff without stating it came out to say that their all was not put into the game.

Now I could be just one upset fan but I really think that if you look at all the facts about this it is a bit fishy. Now form your own opinions on this and if they are all unfounded then I will stand and correct myself but you have to take a closer look.

Good luck Bloomington in getting to the FInal Game

Budokan 78

Had the pleasure of seeing again last night the Cheap Trick cover band Budokan 78'

Now I am a huge Cheap Trick fan and have seen the guys too many times to count so this sounded like something to check out.

I first saw then at a local bar called Chubby Rains House of Tunes and they rocked.

Again last night they put on one hell of a show.

If you get a chance check these guys out. It is worth it.

I wish I knew about this earlier so I could try to attend. I may have a chance especially if Bat Mite can spend the night at a friends just the trusty Batmobile cannot make it that far.

Damn....maybe next year.

Contagion keep me up to speed on date man.....

New Beer

Tonight Contagion and I had the opportunity to try the new pub Granite City Food & Brewery.

Now pub would be a liberal sense of the word.

It looked like a Chicago restaurant to me.

The beer was to say the least lacking.

The thought I think that we both had that I left with was that I will not go out of my way to visit this place.

Now to be totally fair we did not try the food, just the drink.
The atmosphere was too busy and there were too many people bustling back and forth for my taste.

Now some people will love this place but honestly if you have been to one restaurant you have been to this one.

Oh ya and the beer sucked.

Pac-Man Jones: 'I Will Be Nowhere Near Next Friday's Strip-Club Stabbing'
June 21, 2007 | Onion Sports

Sponsored by
LOS ANGELES—Suspended Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam "Pac-Man" Jones called a press conference Tuesday in order to emphasize that he will be nowhere near a possibly fatal stabbing that will occur during a fight involving several members of his entourage and the bartender at an L.A.–area strip club this coming Friday.

"I just want people to know that I'm not going to be present at Shaker's, the club where possibly about to be deceased chump-ass bartender Darrent Wilson has been known to exchange harsh language and threats with my known associates, including kicking me and my people out of his establishment," said Jones, who is also currently being questioned by police concerning a recent shooting at an Atlanta strip club and is currently on suspension from the NFL following a melee and shooting in February at a Las Vegas strip club. "I am sorry for what is about to happen to this man, who will be in the wrong place at the wrong time, but it will have had nothing to do with me."

Jones also took the opportunity to appeal once more to the NFL for leniency in a case of what he called "bad luck."
Manny Arora, Jones' attorney, said that Jones was "genuinely sorry in advance" about the incident, but was not at liberty to answer questions regarding his relationship with the one to three men who will be seen fleeing the vicinity covered in blood. Jones refused to confirm that the weapon to be used in the stabbing, a seven-inch pearl-handled hunting knife, will in fact be given to one of the men by Jones himself this coming Friday morning.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has already scheduled a rare Sunday meeting with Jones, demanding Jones be in his office as soon as news of the incident becomes public.

Add another to the Oakland Raiders!
