Please correct me if I'm wrong-- as I understand LQG theories with VSL , what is actually happening is that the speed of light is sometimes a little less than c and sometimes a little more than c but never with large divergences and always c "on average", such that you could probably never measure the tiny brief deviations. But what you need with OPERA neutrinos is a theory which allows FTL travel systematically, such that a neutrino could travel the way from opera to france while exceeding c the whole way, and also it has to work in this very specific way (only applies for this one otherwise unexceptional particle, only applies at very high energies). Might this be hard to reconcile with LQG?
