No One Actually Likes The Raiders…

Keeping with the football theme of the last few days…

No one actually likes the Raiders...

Update: As a Utahn, I hate that Broncos are the local team automatically.

That is all.

After a bloated Super Bowl in Dallas, it’s time to rein in big game

For absurdity, how about those four Navy F-18s flying over the stadium – with its retractable roof closed? Everybody inside could only see the planes on the stadium’s video screens. It was strictly a two-second beauty shot. Know what it cost taxpayers? I’ll tell you: $450,000. (The Navy justifies the expense by saying it’s good for recruiting.)

NFL Color vs. Color

Now, you probably realize why there is an “official/unofficial” white versus color edict for the NFL. Television. Back in the day when the NFL was beginning its ascendency in the 1950s, almost everyone who owned a TV owned a black and white set. So decades of color versus color games with teams that fans in the stands had no problem discerning suddenly became almost impossible for the fans watching at home to figure out. Even though we’ve slowly but surely moved on not just to everyone now having a color tv, a sizeable portion of the nation now owns giant-sized plasma or HDTVs, basically rendering the need for a white jersey mandate obsolete. Yet it remains.
