  1. Is this a fait accompli, or do the Raiders have time to work out a deal to stay in Oakland, like the Chargers from last year?
  2. Wilbert Montgomery with the Lions.
  3. No Cowboys fan mentioned Tony Dorsett with the Broncos?
  4. Yeah, but that was about 20 years after the celebration rules came about, originally. Before the Cowboys decided to try to intimidate/break up the Redskins Fun Bunch, the celebrations weren't penalized.
  5. I don't recall that, I just recall that the 'catalyst' was the Cowboys trying to get in and break up the Redskins, getting into the middle of the celebration as if to say "No, you're not going to celebrate in OUR stadium!"
  6. They might say it's about time, but it's not. The whole thing with penalizing celebrations, began when the Cowboys decided to take offense to the Redskins 'The Fun Bunch' celebrating a TD with their group high five, and tried to stop them from doing it in Texas Stadium. So to prevent any further fights, the league decided to put in rules against excessive celebrations. Off the top of my head, I don't recall any other incidents that may have contributed to the decision.
  7. Those are, of course, VHS. If said person doesn't have a VHS player, I would be willing to buy the VHS from one of the above links and convert it to DVD and ship both the VHS and the DVD copy to you, Dave. As long as the person who has the DVD copy, also owns the VHS, then the DVD copy is legal as you're permitted to have backup copies of what you own. Looks like a used VHS on Amazon would run under $10 and I've gotten more than $10 worth of value out of the EMB over the past 15 or 16 years, so I would do this free of charge. Just let me know, either here or in a PM, and I'll order the tape.
  8. No SSL for the Login and ACP here? As of this January, Google (Chrome) and Firefox are reporting sites that require a login, as unsafe if it's not using SSL. Will SSL be implemented here?
  9. Report: Possibility of a three-way trade involving Kirk Cousins, Tony Romo
  10. I can understand that, from the standpoint of hometown fans. If the Eagles moved to Virginia Beach, those in Philadelphia would demand that the team history stay in Philadelphia, along with logos, and names. In the age of the Internet and Sunday Ticket, etc... I'd think that 'out of town' fans would care less about that issue. For me, I've never been to Philadelphia, so I don't have that 'hometown' connection, but as much as I'd LOVE to have season tickets to the Virginia Beach Eagles... I really would prefer the team remain in Philadelphia. But wherever the "Eagles" call home, I'm with them.
  11. But the Eagle is the national bird/national animal of the United States and Philadelphia is considered the birthplace of the United States. So there is a logical connection there.
  12. Another Theme question/comment... why not theme it a bit more for the Eagles? Put the Eagle head as the forum icon next to the various forums in place of the Invision talk bubbles. Or, mix it up a little. Put the NFL shield for Around the NFL, Dave's icon, for Ask Dave and the Eagles logo for the rest. It's really simple to do in the ACP, wouldn't even need Invision to do it.
  13. We used to use them in the spokes of our bikes.
  14. No, they weren't able to. The Oilers moved to Tennessee as the Oilers, it was 2 years later that they changed their name to the Titans. I believe they even had to get permission from the Jets to use 'Titans', because the Jets used to be the Titans and still owned the name. With the Browns, they came to an agreement that they would completely vacate the franchise and leave it in Cleveland. All employees and the owner would then move to Baltimore where they were awarded an expansion franchise, and they named it the Ravens. The Browns franchise still existed, it was just dormant (much like it's STILL dormant even now lol). When the Browns came back into being, in 1999, the franchise was just re-populated with an owner, a staff and players. Bringing it back to life. The Titans still owned 'Oilers' when the Texans came into being, and would never have agreed to give it up. That would (or could) have meant giving up the team history as well.
  15. I worked with a guy back in the 90's whose father-in-law had one of the Babe Ruth cards and left it to my friend's son. I don't remember what grade it was, but he told me that the appraisal was in the $500,000 range back then. This was probably '93 or so.
  16. I remember when that story came out, those aren't just rare, those are VERY rare and in near mint condition. That's the kind of thing that people dream about lol. I saw some of them on Antiques Roadshow, if I recall correctly.
  17. $3 Million Worth of Baseball Cards found in Ohio Attic
  18. I have my father's baseball card collection from the late 30's to early/mid 40's, (probably 75 to 100 cards), and even they're not really worth all that much.
  19. Sports cards are likely not worth very much today, unless it's a VERY special player or a VERY rare card. Especially football cards. They oversaturated the market in the 90s and killed it.
  20. I can still hear Chris Berman saying 'Bubby to Bavaro!' during highlights.
  21. Randall Cunningham with the Ravens.
  22. He was never with the Panthers, but he was with the Jaguars. He got cut on "Hard Knocks" (though it was called 'Jaguars Summer' or something like that, at the time).
  23. Johnny Unitas with the Chargers OJ Simpson with the 49ers Joe Namath with the Rams Harold Carmichael with the Cowboys
  24. Has he been cut yet?
