  1. Welcome to the University of Wisconsin, new 49ers players.
  2. Nope. The Raiders have one-year options for 2017 & 2018 at the Oakland Coliseum. It's part of the extension they signed prior to the 2016 season. They could conceivably leave at any time. (And I hope they don't ever use 'em. Stay in Oakland!) http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/14762511/oakland-raiders-sign-new-lease-oco-coliseum-2016-season
  3. Diggin' it! Fun side note from this past weekend: the grounds crew at MetLife Stadium got smart, and rather than fighting the weather to change the end zones from "Jets" to "Giants" between Thursday and Sunday, they just went with neutral cross-hatching.
  4. Packers vs. Redskins preseason action...from Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, WI. Back in the day, the Badgers' home would host 1 Packer preseason game per year...a practice long since discontinued.
  5. They only did that for big, nationally-televised games at Lambeau back in the day. (And during that horrific period of Packer football, there weren't many of 'em.)
  6. Tennessee Oilers, indeed. 1998 vs. Reggie White and the Packers.
  7. Back then, before breaking away from the "Bay Badgers" identity and embracing "Phoenix," UWGB even had a marching band. Here's yours truly in 1995, modeling the old uniform. This is how you do "throwback," kids.
  8. About time UWGB got some love. But folks...you're missing the easy and BEST answer...
  9. Chuck Cecil...Phoenix Cardinal. No...just no. The only red he should've worn was coming out of the bridge of his nose and dripping onto his #26 Packer jersey.
  10. Welcome to the NRG Astrodome!...oh, wait...
  11. Paul Molitor w/ the Toronto Blue Jays. Made my Brewer-blue blood boil back in '93...especially when he won World Series MVP up 'nort.
  12. Old University of Wisconsin-Green Bay logos you're not permitted to use any more! (Man, I remember all of these.)
  13. Just came across video from TruTV's "Hardcore Pawn" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=woui4O25Z18&feature=youtube_gdata_player) of former WWF/WCW superstar Lex Luger pawning some of his old ring robes. In the clip, he's wearing a jersey that I can't place... My wrestling peeps wanna know: can you ID this gear for me? Clues: not NFL, no league on the collar (he's wearing a T-shirt beneath w/ a cross on the neck), and there's a wordmark above the chest numbers and some insignia on the orange portion of the sleeves...all blurred out by TruTV. Thanks for the help, folks!
  14. LOVE the helmets in the end zone. Also kudos to Carolina for ALWAYS putting the NFL shield at midfield. This should be required for every game, every time.
  15. In the age of HD and GoPros, it's a criminal shame that neither Fox, CBS, ESPN or the NFL have brought back helmet-cams. C'mon, man!
  16. From http://espn.go.com/nfl/playoffs/2013/story/_/id/10300335/what-peyton-manning-tom-brady-had-traded-places
  17. "Bayer." Yeah, we get it, a polar bear for a Packer mascot...but c'mon, man. It's a BEAR. A BEAR cannot be a mascot for the PACKERS. Thank God this hot mess never caught on. I'd rather they have brought back Packy Packer from the ill-fated NFL Huddles program. (OK, maybe not. The Packers need no lame mascot.)
  18. OMG, this site may be the best thing ever. Nobody tell NFL Properties!
  19. Hockey at Lambeau Field. Wisconsin beats Ohio State! Or would you prefer this from a few years ago...SNOWMOBILE RACING at Lambeau!?
  20. NFL SuperPro Club member here. Does anybody remember a playbook-style book the NFL had for kids in the early 80's? I think it had Seattle QB Jim Zorn on the cover, and broke down plays w/ red, yellow and blue-colored figures. Anybody?
  21. With the helmet color not matching the pants, I just can't approve of the Vikes' purple road pants. When I was growing up, the Vikes were always in white pants, home or road. Of course, I also miss the UCLA stripes on the road jerseys. Thanks a pantsload, modern cuts.
  22. Thanks to Super Bowl XXXII, I will always mumble "phooey" about the Broncos' unis. That said, they're fine. But the orange jerseys in the current template just look...odd. Solution: 6 home days, wear the blue. 1 home day, wear the orange...and 1 home day (against an AFC West opponent...or Cleveland), bring back the Craig Morton/Norris Weese-era "Orange Crush" throwbacks. You know, how the Broncos are SUPPOSED to look.
