Brady and belichick are coming back again next year, the dynasty will keep going until they retire.

 

Or until Brady's arm falls off.

I think that goes along with his “I’ll retire when I suck” requirement.

I was just thinking about this, but the NFL missed a golden opportunity for Super Bowl 55, AKA Super Bowl LV. How awesome would it have been for Las Vegas to host it?

Yea awesome when they don’t even know if a stadium will be built in time for it.

yeah, but ideally that is the first season for the new Raiders stadium and the NFL usually avoids Super Bowl hosts hosting the big game in year one.

True. It wasn't until year two that 38 was held in Reliant

Ditto for the Georgia Dome (year two was SB 28)

"The Patriots were probably the city's least favorite team, prior to the Rams leaving,” Wallace said. “The Rams are now the least favorite team."

They were the city's least favorite team then too

Also I know I've been Extremely Online for extremely too long because down at the bottom there it looks like it says "DEFEND OUR TERF" and I'm imagining the Get A Brain Morans Cardinals fan passionately arguing that we're being too mean to someone for believing that we can't inadvertently enforce a gender binary.

Tell that to @STL FANATIC, the lone crusader from the Merry-Go-Round thread.

 

Re-reading that thread makes his absence on the boards since clear. It was pretty much him walking against the wind of people wanting the Rams back in LA. It was simultaneously depressing and hilarious, like when Bart freeze-frames Ralph’s heartache.

Correct.  This is season 2 at Mercedes Benz Stadium, as last year was season two for US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.  Inglewood was moved back a year and Tampa stepped in because the NFL wants it held in season 2 after the punch list completed and any major issues after handing over the building are corrected.

I get the sentiment behind this, but they still have the only Rams Super Bowl win. Even if the Rams win on Sunday (they probably won’t), they’ll always have that win. It’d be like losing your spouse for awhile while they “found themselves” with the crazy girl named Georgia in the Midwest. They eventually came crawling back, and it’s probably for the best for everyone, but they just so happened to have a kid while they were away.

I think that's the one thing about the Rams move that has softened many folks view toward them ripping out their small but dedicated fanbase's hearts in STL. The Rams did move back to their home of 48 years when they moved to LA, arguably righting a wrong from the 1990's. 

 

With the Raiders on the other hand, they are ripping out Oakland's heart for the second time in 50 years (though they've proven they're not loyal to cities in the past having ditched LA too, so it's not quite as shocking). And at they were chasing BIG public money in Vegas. 

 

The Chargers however were just an egregious wrong. They ripped out their home of 56 years hearts to go be a second fiddle tenant in a city that never wanted them. And before anyone points out they started in LA, they were in LA a grand total of 5 months and played games in front of crowds that wouldn't fill Long Beach High School's stadium. There were no Charger fans in LA, and still aren't any.

The ultimate issue for the Rams in St. Louis was that St. Louis can muster enough support for 2 1/2 major league teams, and the Cardinals will always get one full unit of that total.

I think we finally get a Brady/Belichick SB decided by double digits

I think you’re right. I also think the double digits end up going the other way. Patriots by at least two touchdowns.

This is the most likely outcome.  Let's be real - the Rams winning would tarnish the trophy since even the commissioner has admitted they shouldn't be there - and I think that once they see the Patriots lined up across from them, at least three of their offensive players will either urinate or defecate in their pants.  Considering the color of their pants, I hope it's only the former.  That would be great, because it'd let McNabb off the hook as the only key player who expelled fluids on the field during the big game.  Tom Brady will catch a pass in this game, and it'll be clear that the only team that can defeat the Patriots when it counts is the Super Bowl LII Champion Philadelphia Eagles*, who have defeated these candy-ass Rams twice in their own stadium, because they're sissies who only have three fans (who just happen to all be members here) - yeah, there was people at some parking-lot rally, but let's be honest - they were just there for the donuts.

 

*and a couple of crappy-ass Giants teams.

I hope Nick Foles puts some Voodoo curse on the Eagles once he leaves town.

He'll probably play as well in his next city as he did when he played for the Rams.
