NFL Merry-Go-Round: Relocation Roundelay

Recommended Posts

w4rbWwB.jpgGiven the facility's design, a naming rights deal with Kohler seems apropos. Of course, Kohler Stadium would undoubtedly give way to a far more descriptive nickname."Welcome to 'The Toilet Seat'!"

Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland. Beautiful stadium, but sure does look like a toilet from the air.6577649251_6d0426f3a9_b.jpg8106717503_2c9277f922_b.jpg8825812918_c19c939b7b_b.jpg9514142799_7bfb62bf66_b.jpg4923186346_e56c36a1c2_b.jpggallery-2044.jpggallery-391.jpg

Looks like a nice stadium...to POOP into!

*Triumph'd.

Don't know what your toilet looks like, but mine doesn't have a downward curve in it like that. The new LA/Carson design is very public toilet seat like with the open front.

That's not surprising, since the Oregon O was influenced by the shape of Autzen Stadium. If Autzen had a roof it would probably look like the one in Dublin.

Headley, that link goes to the NFL main page. Also, I don't see anything in the link's URL about the Rams, just LA, unless I'm missing something.

Up until about 3:30pm ET, that link went to a "Los Angeles Rams" page.

Yahoo was on it this morning: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/the-nfl-s-official-website-already-has-a--los-angeles-rams--page-181222894.html

To be fair, there are sites for all former teams.

With stats about the 2014 team, though?

Yes

The only one I could find: http://www.nfl.com/teams/profile?team=BOS

And it's broken in the same way as the Rams one was. But that's hardly "all former teams," since all other relocated teams with a 2014 team have since been replaced in their vacated markets. The Staleys and Spartans do not seem to have pages.

There were (may all be down now) sites for the LA Rams, LA Raiders, Phoenix Cardinals, and Boston Patriots. Maybe others too.

There's a whole bunch of reasons to think the Rams will wind up in LA. I don't think this registers as anything whatsoever, though.

If it doesn't register as anything, why would the NFL take it down...?

Because it went (semi) viral and people started talking about it. It's not like it would be a huge undertaking for them to set up an LA Rams website, where they'd have to do it 8 months in advance. If the Rams announced tomorrow that they were moving, there'd be a site up before the end of the press conference. I don't think for a second that the NFL tipped their hand here.

Because everyone freaked out about it as supposed evidence of an imminent move. When in reality it's just a vestige of the last Rams relocation that everyone read way too much into. Removing it removes the ability to read anything into it.

True, but removing it and not touching the others gives the impression that there's fire behind this smoke.

Not that I think there is, but even in my limited exposure I've learned that trying to squash a story only prolongs it.

You know, nfl.com was only authorized two days before the Rams' move to St. Louis was approved. I'm not sure that's vestigal.

I thought it was funny that some reports said it was left over from when the Rams were in L.A. ... as if the Internet in its current form has just always been there and we weren't all trapped in AOL's version back in the 1994 season (at best).
