  1. They had some decent Levi's money behind them until the mid-'90s, but then the patriarch died and thus began the series of piecemeal ownership consortiums (consortia?) that were only just getting by, which in turn begat Moneyball.
  2. Mandatory Color Rush was a trip. The same league that wrote like a five-page single-spaced handbook on how to pull your socks up and only wear regulation-length fanny packs turned around and came up with a Brand Dilution Initiative. Go figure.
  3. Is there room to start on that or do they have to demolish the arena first?
  4. Marge Schott was a fascinating character. She cut operating costs to the bone because as an old-line working-class Cincinnatian she believed a family of four should be able to go to the games and not have to pay $10 for a measly hot dog. She was also a Nazi. The duality of man.
  5. Maybe they can get a stadium that's three miles from the Loop and is right on the main rapid transit line, the main south-suburban commuter line, and a major expressway, that'd be a real coup for them
  6. Expecting Montreal to go from league membership to Toronto's farm club is like when people expected Quebec City to go from league membership to Montreal's farm club. It's a setup for failure and the blame always goes to the people at bottom of the chain.
  7. This Las Vegas deal is starting to feel like an extremely elaborate end-run around being the L.A. Raiders again, where they will heavily mine Southern California for business partnerships, bus everyone in from there for gamedays, and otherwise just so happen to play the games in Nevada. The upshot in all this is that the Chargers are very dumb.
  8. Yeah, NFC North is at NFC West for same-finish games, NFC South is at NFC North. I didn't know that until I looked at the schedule announcement this year and put it together for myself. They don't really promote it; I figured it was just alternating home and road from whenever you saw the team last.
  9. I feel like that's usually been the fudge factor for New England, right? 3rd/long, Brady passes to a white guy, he gets bumped a little too hard on his way out of bounds, penalty, automatic first down.
  10. Oh yeah, add the Steelers to that list with the Packers and Patriots. Sorry, I haven't really watched football since 2009 but for some reason I have been this year!
  11. I think he meant downtown relative to Dolphin Stadium, which is all the way up on the county line. But no, it's not downtown downtown, you're right.
