Here's your chance to sound off on the quality of the officiating in the NFL and what you think should be done about it.
If you're a local football fan, the New England Patriots' controversial Sunday Night loss to the Baltimore Ravens probably left you with a bad taste in your mouth and a strong opinion about the status of officiating in the NFL. The much-discussed replacement referee issue was forced front-row center again Monday night when a nationally-televised game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers appeared to be determined by an incorrect call made by a team of back-up officials. So, we have to ask - what do you think about the quality of officiating in the NFL? Do you think the league owes it to the players, owners and fans to put the best product on the field, no matter what it costs? Should League Commissioner Roger Goodell bend …

There was a time when the average American didn't have a day off.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN The origins of the holiday were anything but celebratory. In fact, the first Labor Day "celebration" was actually a protest in which 10,000 workers marched to Union Square Park in New York City to support the idea of a holiday for workers. It was not until 1894, 12 years after that protest, that President Grover Cleveland signed into law a bill designating the first Monday in September, Labor Day. Several states had already passed legislation by that time recognizing the holiday. FEW WERE WORKING FOR THE WEEKEND In the late 1800s the average American worked 12-hour days and seven-day weeks to eke out a basic living. Children as young as 5 and 6 years old worked in factories and mines. WHO GETS THE CREDIT? More than 100 …

The AFC's No. 1 seed, your New England Patriots, host the Baltimore Ravens tomorrow in the AFC Championship. At stake is a trip to the Super Bowl.
There's no shortage of storylines heading into Sunday's AFC Championship matchup between the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens at Gillette Staduim. From Ravens defenders popping off in their typical fasion (we're looking at you, Bernard Pollard) to the Patriots pushing to punctuate a remarkable season dedicated to Myra Kraft, the late beloved wife of Patriots owner Robert Kraft, there's fodder aplenty for commentators, tweeps and fans following tomorrow's tilt. At stake tomorrow is a the right to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. It would be the Patriots fifth trip to the big game in the 10 seasons since the improbable beginning to the Brady-Belichick during 2001-2002. And standing in their way are the Ravens, a defense-first …

Share your opinion in the comments.
Tom Brady shook off an early and unusual turnover to throw for a record 517 yards, including a totally insane 99-yard touchdown pass to Wes Welker, as the Patriots topped the Miami Dolphins, 38-24, in Monday night’s season opener. The New England offense looked in midseason form, with running backs totaling more than 100 yards on the ground and both Welker and versatile tight end Aaron Hernandez tallying triple digits through the air, according to ESPN. But the defense had high and low points: While an improved defensive line ramped up the pressure, receivers Brandon Marshall and Davone Bess predictably exposed a mediocre secondary. So, with that in mind, we want to know, What were your takeaways from the Patriots season opener?
