    Sunday's Chiefs vs. Rams game was supposed to be played in Mexico City. It's been on the schedule since last February.

    Both teams are 9-1 and this is the most anticipated matchup of the Season, next to the Saints vs. Rams a couple weeks ago.

    But on Monday, the NFL unbelievably moved the game to Los Angeles... with the lame excuse that the stadium in Mexico City hadn't properly prepared the turf. Which has a modest possibility-factor. Thousands of fans have made hotel-reservations, made eating-arrangements, made travel-accommodations, went-through the passport-process, bought tickets, etc. Not to mention thousands of Mexicans who were finally going to see a game that had meaning.

    I think the NFL panicked that a game of this 'magnitude' was being played outside the Country, minus US concession/memorabilia bucks... as the mind-control media is running-interference for the League with the 'bad turf' excuse. The same people who scold us for not embracing Mexico even though we usually do, now blatantly screws Mexico up the ass.

    What a mess. Btw, NFL, the players are big boys. They can play on messy turf.

    Was the highest-scoring Monday Night game in history.

    The 3rd-highest in NFL-history.

    And devastating karma-blowback to ESPN, who cut-to " the Almoa bar in Mexico City " to show Rams fans celebrating... but it actually was from a BUFFALO WILD-WINGS bar in nearby Burbank. I was watching while also on Twitter, when the whole site exploded.

    There is no Almoa bar.

    ESPN was trying to cover for the NFL's pullout-decision with what was supposed to be genuine shot of stranded fans not-caring they were lured to Mexico City. I felt sorry for the announcers, who were prompted to craft some apologetic NFL-propaganda over the fakery.
