  1. After reading this article on The Ringer, it seems to me that some of the Patriot defensive players had respect for Belichick, and wanted him to be named as HC in 2000: https://www.theringer.com/2017/8/9/16119282/new-england-patriots-belichick-brady-2000-team I'm not sure if that would have been different three years earlier. I think that Bill would have had more respect from his team than Pete Carroll did (Carroll was a rah-rah guy that the players tuned out, from what I understand). Also, he would have inherited a Drew Bledsoe that was more in his prime, and he would have had Curtis "my favorite" Martin as RB (although I can see him letting him go to NY a year later rather than pay him a lot of money. RB's are disposable to Belichick).
  2. It's ESPN. Of course they are going to televise stuff of low quality. That's the network that Skip Bayless was on for years. It reminds me of something that Charles Barkley said when an ESPN reporter stuck a mike in his face and he saw the logo: "ESPN? You are still trying to rip people off with that s-word station, ain't ya?".
  3. My cousin is a Browns fan in NE Ohio (although he also liked the 49ers in the late-80's and early-90's) who has been complaining about the NE Ohio Steeler bandwagoners for over a decade now. I will warn him that those fans will probably jump to his side if this team starts winning consistently.
  4. That's the game where B-Marsh caught the winning TD, and was going to put a black glove on and do a power salute (this was after Obama was elected) in the end zone. However, some of his teammates stopped him: http://socialistworker.org/2008/11/10/one-salute-wasnt-allowed
  5. I don't know if you remember, but the Steelers fans weren't talking trash in the 80's, that's for sure.
  6. Oh, yeah. Hill was a problem in college as well.
  7. Especially the 49ers fans. They were really annoying in the 80's and 90's. They didn't call them The Bandwagon for nothing.
  8. Someone did a video on this on You Tube not too long ago. They had the Seahawks going back and winning again in 2015 over Denver. I disagree. I still think they lose at Carolina in the divisional round. However, with a better vibe in the locker room, they get back in 2016 against the Pats, and defeat them again for their third SB win (and being crowned the team of the 10's). As for NE, the disappointment of losing SB's two out of three years holds them back in 2017. They don't win in Pittsburgh (in the Jesse James game). As a result, the Steelers get home field, and the Jags beat them in the AFC Title Game (before losing to Philly in the SB). Then, this past year, the Chiefs don't jump offside, and they get the INT to win the game (they also win their first SB in 49 years). Without three rings in the past five years, the narrative involving Brady slowly starts to change. He still isn't traded instead of Jimmy G (because Kraft is loyal to his vet QB's-see Bledsoe), but he isn't talked about as much for GOAT, either.
  9. I heard about an option where Baltimore could have gone into the East. Maybe I was mistaken. On that link, I don't see them in the East in any of those options.
  10. In 2002, they were originally thinking about putting the Bills in the AFC North and the Ravens in the AFC East. If that would have happened, a Ravens-Patriots rivalry would have started earlier and went for longer than it did (it was just the early part of this decade in reality). Also, if the NFL would have kept the Seahawks in the NFC West after 1976 (like they should have, while putting Tampa in the AFC Central), maybe a Hawks-49ers rivalry blossoms in the mid-80's.
  11. Ken Reed of League of Fans has a new entry about youth football: http://www.leagueoffans.org/2019/03/05/usa-today-time-to-ban-tackle-football-for-children/
  12. I have a better idea with Phoenix: Contract the current Jets, consider them part of the Thrashers franchise (history-wise), and move the Coyotes back to Winnipeg, re-naming them the Jets (the real Jets, not some team that should have been called something else). Also, I would bring back the old unis that they had before they moved to Phoenix. As for Carolina, I think I would just get rid of them. I don't know about bringing back the Whale.
