Where else are they going to move now that Vegas has an expansion team?

 

The Jets moving to Phoenix is in the discussion for dumbest relocations in history.

 

At least the other ones that seem dumb were to escape crumbling buildings, diminishing fan bases, to take advantage of shiny new arenas.  Even the first one that comes to my mind - Seattle Supersonics to OKC - seems to be working out, as much as I hate the fact that OKC has a pro basketball team and a city like Seattle doesn't.

Sonics to Thunder is a lot like Browns to Ravens. Both origin and destination cities deserved franchises in both cases. I don't know the state of the NFL in 1995; surely there must have been more worthwhile franchises to move. Katrina saved pro basketball in New Orleans, and we all know now it hasn't been worth it.

Dumbest and meanest, as the grassroots effort to keep the team, especially after the intended location to Minneapolis fell through, was practically met by "oh, wouldn't you know it, there's been an NHL bylaw on the books that says it's against the rules for Winnipeg to have a team, can't believe we never noticed that."

 

Hartford to I dunno where Auburn Hills I hope okay nope got my dick slapped so Columbus maybe or maybe Raleigh who knows still waiting to hear back about that aircraft hangar okay Raleigh but there's nowhere to play so for now Greensboro, that was an all-timer. But when you think about it, the discussion should really be about which relocations didn't involve catastrophic stupidity.

I think the Oilers were approved to relocate the same week or right after the Browns were. That business was just as callous, greedy, and stupid as what went down with the Browns (perhaps more so given the intention to play two more seasons in the Astrodome and a third in Memphis before landing in Nashville for 1999: hey this sounds commitment-to-excellently familiar!), it just got overshadowed because the other team was founded by a dude who more or less invented modern football.

I'm usually the guy who's excited for every football season.

 

But not this year.

 

My interest for this season is it an all-time low.

 

It's basically gonna be 4.5 months of false hope before Brady/Belichick win another joyless SB trophy.

 

Seriously, after hearing all NBA season about how THE WARRIORS ARE RUINING BASKETBALL, you don't hear anyone say the Patriots are ruining football.

 

I mean, the AFC is basically 'Why bother?'

 

Brady and Belichick have singlehandedly sucked the fun out of football for me more than anyone thinks Durant ruined basketball.

 

The NFL is so watered down that its top player is a freaking 40 year old geezer.

 

Might as well stand for National Foxboro League.

 

It's New England and 31 others at this point.

 

Wake me up when the parade is over.

God, this team is such a piece of :censored:. :censored: the Chargers. 

 

Chargers Ditch Equipment Manager At End Of Training Camp After 38 Years With Team

 

Quote

Wick left his native San Diego to move to the Los Angeles area in mid-July, in order to be ready for training camp to begin later in the month. He worked training camp for the team, and news of his firing broke today, one day after camp ended.

The story doesn't come close to saying why he was fired. For all we know he could've taken a sh1t on Spanos' desk and had it coming.

 

He would've deserved a raise in that case.
