  1. Super Bowl LI

    A ball mock-up already? Wow.
  2. Super Bowl 50 Aesthetics

    Personally, I hate that. If the two best teams in the NFL come from the AFC or NFC, then the "Super Bowl" becomes anti-climactic. Plus, the AFC/NFC alignment leaves no possibility for some absolutely great potential matchups with the Lombardi Trophy at stake. Imagine how nuts the whole country goes for a Cowboys-Redskins title tilt. Or Raiders-Chargers, Steelers-Browns, Eagles-Giants, or any other number of potential matchups rendered impossible by the AFC/NFC alignment. I'm in favor of expanding the playoffs to 14 teams, but making it a league-wide qualifier: the 8 division champions make it, followed by 6 wild cards without regard to division. Seeding is done solely on record without concern about division champion/wild card status, leaguewide, from 1 - 14. The #1 and #2 seeds get a first round "bye," but no others. 3 vs. 14, 4 vs. 13, 5 vs. 12, 6 vs. 11, 7 vs. 10, and 8 vs. 9 in a Week 18 "Qualifying" Round. Reseed the 8 survivors for the quarter-finals in Week 19, then have the fab four in semi-finals in Week 20 with a Super Bowl berth on the line.
  3. 2015 NFL Season-Now with Playoff Talk

    Me... Sunday... around 6:20 ET.
  4. Beginning of the end of Arena Football League? (again)

    What a coincidence... I own chicagoblitz.com...
  5. NFL Merry-Go-Round: Relocation Roundelay

    Transit access is inconsequential; Kezar today might handle a good high school football crowd, but that's about it.

    He's spending his kids inheritance money, having cut them out of their inheritances and sent them packing out of the Panthers offices years ago.
  7. NFL Merry-Go-Round: Relocation Roundelay

    The professional sports franchises of Oakland didn't elect those government officials into office - their citizens did. And the citizens have made it fairly clear in Oakland: no subsidizing pro sports teams with public funds. I don't blame city officials for their stance, and if Oakland's pro sports franchises all walk as a result? They walk. Dodger Stadium is another one.
  8. NFL Merry-Go-Round: Relocation Roundelay

    I'm basing this presumption on past practice... the NFL has historically set relocation fees based on the change in markets.
  9. NFL Merry-Go-Round: Relocation Roundelay

    And it also won't be $550 million to relocate anywhere but Los Angeles. $300 million, tops, to go anywhere else.
  10. Beginning of the end of Arena Football League? (again)

    Did they appoint you Commissioner for February or something?
  11. CCSLC Championship Ring Thread

    What do you suppose the odds are of, instead of incorporating team-specific elements on the ring top, the Panthers or Broncos opt to really emphasize the SB50 logo as the centerpiece? Unlikely perhaps, but it'd sure make the 50 ring distinctive from its predecessors.
  12. Super Bowl LI

    Interesting, but I suspect that'd be hard to make a multi-year template out of, as it'd get a little lopsided with LII, let alone LIII or should it last that long, LVIII.
  13. NFL Merry-Go-Round: Relocation Roundelay

    Okay, except that if that holds true, he doesn't have anywhere to play in the Los Angeles market in 2017 or 2018, either...
  14. NFL Merry-Go-Round: Relocation Roundelay

    Perhaps, but I think if that were true, why the delay in moving? Why stretch it out yet another year, especially when you already have league approval to go? What's going to be the 2016 Chargers ticket base in San Diego if significant progress isn't made on some front, and fast? 5,000, maybe? This is a huge gamble for Spanos. He still thinks a stadium deal in San Diego is possible. If he didn't? No way does he keep them there for what could be a truly disastrous lame duck season.
  15. NFL Merry-Go-Round: Relocation Roundelay

    Confirmed. Spanos just released a statement. We have the "Los Angeles Chargers of San Diego" to look forward to in 2016.
