TTFF: The Week Between

8.29.2012 – Oklahoma City, OK (Ryan MacNeill)

So much attention has been lavished on the Bill Graham and Dick’s shows that I decided to select jams from the week in between the three-night stands for this week’s playlist. Additionally, I chose to skirt any jams I have featured in articles or have written about specifically, so hopefully there is something new for everyone in today’s selections. Enjoy the weekend!

The phenomenal one-two punch that kicked off set two at Starlight Theatre.

Reba” 8.28 I, St. Louis, MO

    I disagree philosophically w the ref’s position, these being rich trial lawyers and other successful individuals demanding privately funded old skool pension bennies,for a weekend’s work, is also unable to long endure. But funally, dramatically, now they finally have leverage. Well done gentlemen.

  2. bobby weird Says:

    @dognamed, vegas must be going ballistic.

  3. tela'smuff Says:

    it’s not as easy as showing up at 9AM and putting on the whistle to ref a game Bobby. that’s ignorance, and all you have to do is reflect on what’s transpired over the last 3 weeks. if getting a raise for being a professional ref seems out of bounds because they already have regular off season jobs, then the billionaire owners can pony up some more taxes to pay for our infrastructure. it’s only a couple hundred thousand more, they can afford it, right?

  4. bobby weird Says:

    Telas, 1000% agree the owners are f’ing tight ass dicks, who are displaying indignant reckless refusal to fold when thy long ago should – but until now my view was the refs can be replqced. Now this is flawed argument.

    As serious as this all is, Al Gore is still saying, “you call that robbed?”

    Last call was only the easiest to criticize. Arguably GB should not have scored their TD. Arguably.
    2-1, bitches.

  6. tela'smuff Says:

    biggest issue i can see is i care way too f’in much about the NFL!! ha. yeah bobby, i feel ya. debating refs? must be a TAB tour on the horizon. #morephishlessreplacementrefs

    Hey in the books a win is a win. #phishwins

    A couple of years ago I decided that I didn’t really care about sports unless I had money on the game. I only needed to follow the outcomes to reap the social benefits but no longer had to actually watch the games. For the first time, I saw how important gambling is to professional sports. As a true fan who only cared about the home team doing well I had naively overlooked this ugly fact my whole life.

    When I tune in to catch the end of any game in any of the big three I almost always see a compelling finish. Amazing how good those tv products are.

    It is impossible not to look with suspicion at how much influence these officials have on the transactions surrounding these matches. We all know about point spreads and prop bets and all the peripheral opportunities to get in on the action. It is hard to ignore how susceptible this business is to organized crime.

    There is simply too much opportunity here for someone to be compromised for it not to happen. The longer the lockout continues the more proof there will be of the crimes.

    I happen to think the nfl, nba, & mlb are rigged as shit already and this is just a straight up cash grab taking place right now.

  9. bobby weird Says:

    A referee was said to be dismissed due to Facebook pg showing him rabid saints fan. After that it was pretty much doomed I suppose.

  10. voopa Says:

    Yeah, it’s probably rigged, like everything else. Phish is probably The Long Con.

  11. MiA Says:

    The failure of the NFL Observers/officiating tonight was mostly in the replay booth. Are they part of the replacement refs?

  12. TheLongCon Says:

    “Phish is probably The Long Con.”

    Maybe so, maybe not.

    Stopped into the bar for a beer and burger last night to watch a bit of the game. Ended up talking mule with friends more than watching. Without TV and no NFL streaming I just don’t care. I enjoy betting on some sports, but never NFL. Was tempted to take vikings over 49ers with the odds reno was giving me. However, I’ll just have to wait on the NHL…or start betting on AHL.
