    These are relocations so you're only getting a nominal increase in revenues if you can out draw and upcharge. So let's assume a relo gives you that incremental increase, does that revenue increase exceed the ~$2 Billion capital expenditure for a new stadium and relocation fees? My back of the napkin guess says no. Local revenues are a distant secondary revenue source the revenue sharing that all 32 teams share equally. Lastly nobody is getting rich off of solely owning an nfl franchise. Look at the spanos and davis situations, both cash poor owners because the don't have any outside income to bring to the table. The majority of ownership got rich elsewhere, then bought their teams. Edit: Feel free to poke a few holes in my argument as it's late on fri night and I have not looked up any recent #'s but the general concept is pretty much there.
  2. Couldn't agree more...this has local swap meet written al over it. What a POS.

    Football: bring back metallic pants

    much like nike bringing about their minimalist design trend being an obvious attempt for them to stay ahead of the fashion/design curve, I thought they would have trotted out metallic sheen by now as a new design element for whatever their next generation cutting edge fabric is. Anecdotally the high end women's athletic brands seem to have been on the shiny/metallic trend (90's baby!) for over a year so the tech is definitely out there. Maybe adi will be the 1st to jump back as they have embraced the faux mesh pattern with their throwbacks.

    Regardless of their perception is non-raider fans, they have been the #1 draw for viewers in LA and the cowboys have been #2 for a couple decades. Nfl is a tv driven sport so having a local team to grow your fan base is irrelevant in 2018. Kids who grew up without a local team chose others and transplants brought their allegiance with them from the big cities back east. It will take at least a decade for the rams to get real traction.

    Yet they are still the most popular nfl team in LA. That's pretty impressive.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Those jerseys look straight DIY home project. Buy kelly green v neck shirt, cut out yellow numbers, add embellishments. Honestly the most interesting design element on these is the Pac12 shield.

    Judging by the asskicking they took at home my mild prediction is that those uniforms will never be seen again.

    Dumb question, how to you break in a helmet in a walk through practice? I would think you would need some nominal contact to ensure the helmet is game ready and everything is properly adjusted.

    Cleveland Browns re-do in the works for 2020?

    I had a hunch that they were going to do a mid 2010's take on the disastrous 1984 uniforms. Unfortunately my hunch came true

    Sorry I don't use image search algorithms as a basis to construct proper written and verbal communication. Just because the masses have chosen to adopt improper terminology does not make it so.

    I prefer accuracy and proper context over lazy mischaracterizations.

    The term yoga pants is misused on this board. Traditional yoga pants are not tights, form fitting, nor made of stretch materials. They are lightweight and loose fitting, nothing like football pants. The term was co-opted by pop journalism and athletic wear companies due to the correlation that they were commonly worn to yoga classes. The proper terminology would be to use in the following scenario: "When the ravens wear black pants with black socks they give the appearance that they are wearing 3/4 length tights or leggings that are ubiquitous amongst the fitness and athleisure crowd."

    This helmet is pretty heinous. I understand they are a service academy, but this depiction of the AC-130 in guns a blazin' mode is a very poor representation of the usafa. I prefer my over the top promo shots of our immense military firepower to be sourced from defense contractor promo materials.
