Default Power Outage...Really?

Deja vu. So, again...we have a suspicious blackout during, this time...THE most important game of the year...and the 2nd in as many years that this has happened...both times involved the 49ers! hatever you think of Baltimore, as a Steelers fan...this has to seem a little too familiar. I mean seriously, at this point, I gotta ask: if not Goodell, the SF organization ought to be investigated. Regardless, the odds of the SB going into OT and/or being decided by a margin of 3 pts or less appear to far better than you'd assume, given that the Raven's lead was essentially insurmountable, prior to the outage.

I fully predict that the 49s will win by 2 points in the biggest SB upset in sometime, I dunno - maybe ever?

Check the stats from both teams pre-outage...and then post-outage. The degree to which the momentum changed is striking...and I would say, nearly astronomically unlikely. This should be seriously investigated.

Goodell probably said, "Well, look at how bady the Steelers stalled out after a lengthy blackout. Hmm.Baltimore isn't supposed to have a blowout. Hmm. Have someone cut the power. Oh, and fine Harrison $50,000 for that flag involving Baltimore running into that kicker."

I agree with a lot of that. Seems way too coincidental to be just a trip up. If the power never shifted Baltimore would of won in a beatdown.

one good thing that happened with the power outage. When the lights came on all the 49ers weren't laying on the ground stabbed to death. Could have been pretty bad for you know who.

Glad I didn't atually bet anyone on the 49s winning, since I'm broke.

But I at least correctly predicted the margin of victory...which was indeed within 3. I'd say I was surprised, but given this season...and the number of games won or lost in OT or by 3 or less points (and especially by the Ravens!!!)...I guess this should have been expected. Regardless of how much Baltimore was leading before the questionable 35 minute outage.

I said the exact same things to my wife during the power outage.

Too coincidental for my taste... although, the comeback made me happy.
