This may or may not be true..

Floyd Mayweather has a history of placing big bets on big sporting events, which is why when a rumor spread that he had placed $10 million on the Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl, some believed it.

Now that the Broncos have lost, Mayweather has finally set the record straight.

Mayweather took to Instagram to publicly squash the rumor he bet $10 million on the Broncos. Infact, Mayweather says he didn't place any money at all on the Super Bowl.

Broncos Fans Went Porn-Crazy After Super Bowl Lost (INFOGRAPHIC)
Posted: 02/04/2014 12:22 pm EST Updated: 02/04/2014 2:59 pm EST


Sometimes in life, it seems like porn is the only thing you can count on.

That would appear to be the thinking of Broncos fans who collectively went on an all-out porn binge after their beloved team was beaten like a, uh, drum, by the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl 48.

Pornhub did God's work by taking a deep dive into their traffic during and after the Super Bowl.

During the Super Bowl, porn viewing plunged by 51 percent and 61 percent in Denver and Seattle, respectively.

After the Super Bowl, things got interesting. While Seahawks fans apparently continued to revel in their victory, Broncos fans turned to porn for solace.

Pornhub logged a 17 percent drop in porn viewing from normal averages in Seattle, while in Denver, there was an 11 percent swell in traffic, much higher than the nation-wide rise of 4 percent during the same time period.
Porn and weed.. Why not :o

I would like to see more points given for special plays like..

A Safety bumped up from 2 to 4 points
A Field Goal from 50+ yards out bumped up from 3 to 4 points

Just my opinion ;D
Well it looks like I'm not the only one that agrees with me about the 4 point 50+ yard field goal.. 8)

Adam Vinatieri: Field goals over 50 yards should be worth four points
February 10, 2014, 10:46 AM EST


When Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri was a guest of Mike Florio’s on PFT Live during Super Bowl week, he said it would be a “crying shame” if the NFL wound up eliminating extra points.

He’s not the first kicker to come out against altering the extra point because kickers have become too successful at making them, but he also added a suggestion of a way to reward kickers for their abilities. Vinatieri said that field goals over 50 yards should be worth four points instead of three and discussed the potential for coaches to use strategy in order to try for a game-winning four-point kick rather than a tying kick from 47 yards out.

Vinatieri repeated his idea, one that feels off as it rewards a team for not driving deep into opposition territory, in an interview with the team’s website, adding that the improvement in kicking is a natural progression of the increased focus on training and preparation that kickers have done over the years.

“Kickers are just getting better. Back in the day, 30 or 40 years ago when football wasn’t a 12-month a year, guys are just getting stronger. They are just getting more focused in on being more accurate. Guys are doing a lot more in the weight room in terms of getting stronger,” Vinatieri said. “Percentages back in the 50s and 60s if you were 70 percent you were leading the league. Now, shoot, you got guys that don’t miss any or maybe miss just one or two kicks all season. I think it’s just a combination of a lot more snap, hold, kick work throughout the season to kind of fine tune.”

Vinatieri is coming off one of the best seasons of his career and the fact that he did it 18 years into his career is a good example of how training methods have improved over time. That should help Vinatieri, who is set to become a free agent in March, land a new contract in Indy or elsewhere for his 19th season and beyond even if his four-point field goal idea is unlikely to be adopted.
