I saw this article on BustedCoverage yesterday. Pretty awesome….
“Gino DiFelice and his Brantford family might want to send NFL commissioner Roger Goodell a gift basket for prolonging his labour dispute with the league’s officials. While the regular NFL officials went back to work last Thursday, DiFelice was revelling in his big Proline win, thanks in part to the replacement officials handling the Sept. 24 game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers.A botched call on the last play of that Monday night game gave the Seahawks the victory and meant DiFelice won $725,274 thanks to a perfect 15-for-15 prorogation of the NFL’s third week.”
Hit the jump to read more about the story… (trust me it gets better)
DiFelice’s windfall is the third highest Proline payday. The most a Proline ticket has paid out was $874,857 in December 2011, followed by $759,465 in October 2010.
And what makes it more unbelievable, is the way he picked the winning teams.

The Seahawks Peck And Claw Back From An NFL Disgrace
If there's a common truth for sports fans to embrace, it is this:
THE SEATTLE SEAHAWKS ARE DUE.
Don't mistake Golden Tate catching the Green Bay Packer who caught the ball as any sort of payback. That's not even a decent start, not when titles come into play.
With Super Bowl championships hanging in the balance...
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer The question asked of Seattle coach Pete Carroll had nothing to do with Bobby Wagner.
After the way Wagner has played in the first quarter of the season, Carroll made it a point to recognize how well his rookie middle linebacker is doing making the adjustment from college to the NFL.
Through four games...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is not considering the possibility of wearing a shield or a visor on his facemask, even after the injury he suffered in Sunday's game.
Midway through the third quarter of Green Bay's Week 4 win, New Orleans Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins was attempting to tackle Rodgers near the goal line when his finger violently poked the...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Jeff Saturday expects his return to Indianapolis on Sunday to be "awkward." After 13 years playing for the Colts, the veteran center will experience a lot of firsts when he arrives to Lucas Oil Stadium with the Packers as a member of the road team."The funny thing is, I don't even know where the visitor's locker room is," Saturday said...
Seahawks mail sack!
Regularly, I take an opportunity to address my readers’ comments and concerns regarding the Seahawks season. I value this opportunity. In today’s mailbag I address responses to my “Seattle Seahawks offense in a nutshell” pictorial article. Keep your responses coming!
My first letter comes from Michael Bernazzani.
“I was SCREAMING...
A hook hand might cause problems for Aaron Rodgers, but an eye patch would just add to his arsenal. Rodgers was poked in the eye during Sunday's victory over the Saints. He was struck by safety Malcolm Jenkins, which drew a facemask penalty and temporarily affected the quarterback's vision. Fortunately for the Packers, Rodgers is going to be all right, although he doesn&...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings has been officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts.
During Green Bay's win over the New Orleans Saints last weekend, Jennings aggravated the groin injury he initially suffered in Week 1 and left the game early. Jennings missed Week 2, and the two-time Pro Bowl selection has only 12 catches...
When Packers nose tackle B.J. Raji saw the envelope from the NFL, he figured he would be writing a big check.
He expected something in the neighborhood of a $20,000 fine for his personal foul penalty in Sundays game against the Saints.
So Raji was relieved that he was fined about $7,800, he said today.
The NFL announces most player fines on Fridays, but most likely Rajis...
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said his vision was "bouncing around" after he was poked in the right eye by Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins in the game Sunday against the Saints, and he was not sure if he could even hand the ball off cleanly with a first and goal on the Saints' one-yard line, Bob Wolfley of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.
Rodgers on Tuesday...
On Monday, both Packers coach Mike McCarthy and Greg Jennings admitted theyve given consideration to shutting down the wide receiver until his injury fully heals after initially becoming an issue during the regular-season opener against San Francisco on Sept. 9, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Jennings, who has yet to visit a doctor this week, said he always...
Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings has been ruled out of the team's upcoming game against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday with a groin injury, according to a tweet from NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. Jennings missed the Packers' game against the Bears with the same injury, but managed to play in the next two games after that. It's unclear when exactly Jennings will return...
Hard as it is to believe, Jeff Saturday needs a visitor's guide to Indianapolis.
Sure, he can give his Green Bay Packers teammates a list of restaurants to rival Zagat's after spending the first 13 seasons of his NFL career with the Colts. Have everyone over to his house if he wants. And he knows the way to Lucas Oil Stadium so well he could probably drive the team bus....
The suspended Saints coaches and GM have been cleared by the NFL to attend Sunday's game to watch Drew Brees go for a record.
