I think the only conspiracy might be in the reports of why the lights went out. The real reason may or may not be made public but I do not think it was caused to effect the outcome of the game or increase revenue.
To think it could have been prevented by checking things beforehand is foolish. There is simply no way to check and prevent every contingency. If it were possible there would never be a power outage anywhere at anytime. Murphy's law prevails!
First of all, they got their butts kicked...they lost. Lets get that out of the way...they lost, period. BTW, I also notice the Ravens were kind of soft coverage. But any way, the 49ers lost.
The out come was, the Ravens lost. It was the people who were switching channels once it started to go one way. They follow these statistic you know. Power went out for 34 minutes, the momentum shifted, and it was a game again. But, as I said before, the 49ers LOTS!! Like I expected, please check the poll.
Could it have been prevented? Well, when I have a party at home, I always watch and check that everything is available and working properly. I don't wait until everyone is having a good time to check if their is ice, gas, chips, tacos, ribs, beer, soda, Cutty, Chivas, Don Q, Plazma setup correctly etc.
Watch the media touch this in the weeks ahead. 49ers lost.
