    The Bills made Jerry cry

    well, it's hard to say they're worse, because they beat the ever-loving crap out of us

    49ers holding

    I hate the 49ers more than I hate the Cowboys and Giants, so I pray that SF somehow implodes.

    The Bills made Jerry cry

    I feel like we've given Dallas every opportunity to put the nail in the coffin on us, but they're almost as bad as we are

    Chargers Potential Move to London is messed up

    the Rams barely have a fanbase in LA, let alone the Chargers. I don't know what was going on in St. Louis/San Diego but I feel like both teams should have stayed put.

    And now Michael Bennett...

    I confess. It's me that's been leaking out all that information lately. I am the "source" in the locker room

    And now Michael Bennett...

    yet somehow Dallas gets all these rejects and drug users to play cohesively. One thing I will give Jones credit for, is he will take the worst criminals and give them another chance. He's turned around the lives of many people because of it. As for Bennett, I thought he was great when he was here. Maybe there were issues, but I was ignorant to them and felt he did all we asked of him and more.

    Ex NY Jet Mark Gastineau Is Very Ill

    so sad to hear of this. He was a great player, but aside from that, the way life can leave us without dignity like this is just an awful thought.

    Chiefs fan cited for shining laser at Tom Brady

    other than to annoy the crap out of people. what's the point of those stupid laser lights anyway?

    Your top guys at each position.

    I like the idea of Barry Sanders, but maybe even Walter Payton. Ray Lewis is a great choice at MLB, and can't argue Neon Deion is indeed probably the best corner ever, but there's no way I would pass on Ronnie Lott.

    Your top guys at each position.

    hard to argue with your list. You have some greats there. I might go Tony Gonzalez or Kellen Winslow at TE, and I'd probably go Vince Lombardi as my coach.
  12. As far back as I can remember, the media wants to rebuild the team that lost the Super Bowl.

    Was Super Bowl LIII Fixed?

    If I were going to argue that the game was fixed, it's not because of penalties are obvious referee decisions, but the game plan. Every team, at one point or another during the season does the exact opposite in a game than what has made them successful. Case in point: The Rams are going to beat you because of Gurley/Anderson. They are not an "air it out" team. They have a good balance, but they're going to beat you on the ground. Yesterday they had Goff airing it out all day, and quite frankly, he's not a very good passer. When a team completely abandons what got them there in the first place, you have to start to wonder. Still, if it was "fixed" it would have been more entertaining.

    Was Super Bowl LIII Fixed?

    This is a bit of a myth. California, SoCal specifically, is not a huge NFL market. Yes, LA is the 2nd largest city (if you call a bunch of suburbs smacked together a "city") with a population of about 3.4 million people but LA is not like the East Coast or the mid-west in the sense that it's too cold to go outside and do anything so you're going to hunker down in front of your television all winter. That doesn't really exist out here. That's why football teams keep leaving LA. The Rams left before, the Chargers left before. Most Chargers fans are still coming up from San Diego to the games. It will be a long time before there are any "LA Chargers" fans. I think within 10 years the Chargers will be back in San Diego. The Rams, who had some glory days in LA, well even most of their fans have always been from the valley. Even the Raiders, who at the time of their move were one of the NFL's most recognizable "brands" couldn't make it there. Both of the "LA" teams are going to rely on opposing teams' fans to help sell out their stadiums for some years to come, because the local interest just isn't there.

    I think the NFL to some degree or another is fixed, but I don't feel like the Super Bowl was. It would have been much more thrilling if it was.
