    NFL Fields - 2003 Playoffs (1/11/19)

    Do the stars on the Meadowlands logo represent the horse racing tracks in New Jersey?

    Unrealized Stadiums

    In the link below you can see a wider view of what they proposed. Looks like the plan was to remove some of the lower bowl between the 30 yard lines on the press box side and then a large part of the lower section on the other side, I guess that's how they would have given it somewhat standard dimensions for baseball with temporary seating put in for football. Pitt Stadium was designed to have the upper deck added on the press box side if they ever wanted to expand. https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=djft3U1LymYC&dat=19590211&printsec=frontpage&hl=en

    Unrealized Stadiums

    Here's one I never knew about, the 1959 proposal to convert football only Pitt Stadium to a multi-purpose football/baseball stadium. Parking and traffic was a nightmare at a 50,000 seat Pitt Stadium, I can't image what it would be once they kicked it up to 74,000 for baseball and 80,000 for football. https://twitter.com/PGH_Sports_Date/status/1095071701665280001

    The XFL may be making a comeback

    McMahon tried that in XFL1.0 and none of the football people wanted any part of it. Go watch Jesse Ventura try to lure the New York coach into an altercation, it’s just as embarrassing as Bubba the Cameraman in the cheerleader locker room.

    Worst Game You Ever Saw

    Gloria Estefan was the headliner for the "Winter Magic" halftime show at SBXXVI in Minneapolis! This one also had Dorothy Hamill and Brian Boitano skating around on platforms and the 1980 Miracle on Ice team running down some stairs and waving to the crowd. The SBXXIX Indiana Jones themed show with Pattie Labelle and Tony Bennett is goofy but entertaining, Disney produced it and used parts of the Indiana Jones Stunt Show from Disney World. Maybe if the NFL can't land a top act for the halftime show they should just start cheesing it up again, next year it's in Miami get Disney to produce and tie it in with the new Star Wars Land coming to both Disneyland and Disney World, have BB8 and R2-D2 scooting around and Mark Hamill singing songs from Guys and Dolls. Or since it's the game is on FOX do a big song and dance tribute to the Simpsons, they have enough of a song catalog to fill the 15 minutes.

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    Don’t forget John Kasay kicking it out of bounds to give New England the ball at the 40 yard line in SB38.

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    It’s the most boring one in my book, at least the big blow out games in the 80’s and 90’s had some exciting plays and scoring. I watched Super Bowl IX recently and the first half was similar to tonight’s game but the second half was way better, two Steeler TD’s and a Vikings blocked punt for a TD, plus you had Fran Tarkington running for his life. Super Bowl V had 11 total turnovers and is always considered the worse Super Bowl so it might be between tonight’s game and that one.
  8. Ford Field feels like a poorly designed mall.

    Super Bowl Field Database - Super Bowl LIII

    Has there ever been an explanation given on why they went with the current end zone design and ditching of the conference logos?

    2018 NFL Season

    Bradshaw put out a few albums in the 1970's, if you do a quick search on YouTube you'll find him singing on some variety shows from that era.

    Forgotten Rivalries

    That’s what happens when you pick the conference alignment out of a hat.
  13. The Las Vegas Motor Speedway is a really cool idea but isn't the issue Mark Davis not wanting to spend any money on a temporary facility?

    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    That last sponsor most likely cut them a pretty nice check, remember the AAF, XFL2.0 and companies like MGM Grand are banking on the betting gimmicks to catch on.

    The XFL may be making a comeback

    I currently live in Detroit and was born and raised in Pittsburgh and I can't see more than 10,000 people showing up for minor league football in those cities.
