Nothing like that at all. :) I'm knackered today and didn't stop to think about what you could have meant. My bad.

This is off the top of my head, but I think it was to do with stadium issues.

The Rams had a brand new stadium built for them in St. Louis (now known as the Edward Jones Dome), while the Raiders were guaranteed improvements to the Coliseum in Oakland along with (I think) some kind of deal where the city would buy any unsold tickets for any Raiders game.

Now of course Los Angeles is the big stick to threaten cities into building new stadia. My research into the Vikings stadium plans earlier even linked the Vikings with a move there (which I just can't see happening).

Good work fella, thanks. Finding all this real interesting... Anyone have any clues as to the next possible change in franchise or could they develop the gme further and add more?

I'd put money on Buffalo to Toronto within 10 years. Wouldn't get good odds though.

The NFL are reluctant to add franchises, since they have a nice 32 team schedule. But LA surely must get a relocated or new team...

Latvian Eagle 26-01-2009 09:24 PM

Yeah heard quite a bit about Buffalo maybe moving to Toronto. They played a game there this season didn't they (I think it was Miami?), and I'm sure they play a lot of Exhibition / Pre Season games there too.

Who is an unstable Franchise though really, who'd be likely to move? It's hard really to pick one out, and Los Angeles is the obvious place to put a new / relocated Franchise.

Yes, good point. They played in Toronto this year didn't they? Agree with the LA one. Just read that there used to be the LA Chargers before ...

elliott 26-01-2009 09:32 PM

Yeh...

Not sure about unstable franchises. Perhaps Miami aren't looking too hot. St Louis??? New Orleans?

RDSdaEAGLE 26-01-2009 09:33 PM

LA is supposedly the biggest television market for the NFL.

Despite the two teams moving away, they both seem to still have a bit of a presence here. Rams and Raiders merchandise is still quite easily available in shops here, and I still see people walking around in both their jerseys.

In fact, we still get Oakland Raiders updates on our local news channel.

One of the West coast ones was mentioned recently on a website.

It may have been San Diego, but i'll try and find out if it was another team.

pauldrulez 26-01-2009 10:31 PM

Anyone want to hazard a guess at the game in my avatar :D

(Cue pictures of Tyree/Burress posted by everyone else) ;)

Strathclyde Eagle 26-01-2009 10:48 PM

Every time there is a San Diego/new stadium story then LA gets mentioned. If any city would hate to lose a team to LA then San Diego is it. No way that happens in my view.

I honestly couldn't pick the team to move next, Buffalo aside, and I don't think that will happen quickly.

Just how did that stay there. Defies gravity, physics and Rodney.

If only, if only :(

If that picture serves to remind me of something, its the number 91 on the helmet. When I first heard of his death, it made me realise that you have to live life to the full. RIP Marquise.

elliott 26-01-2009 11:24 PM

just a quickie chaps, how are the senior bowl players assigned into north and south. anyone know?

i was very confused. place of birth? home town? college location?

Strathclyde Eagle 27-01-2009 12:07 AM

Didn't Graham Harrell play for the North? Seems very random if that's the case.

jlmatthews 27-01-2009 12:20 AM

EDIT -- better answers to what I wrote above.

jlmatthews 27-01-2009 12:26 AM

Seen the LeBron football commercial?


jazman 27-01-2009 12:26 PM

Thanks for the input on the franchises people ... my learning continues :D

saxoneagle 27-01-2009 04:37 PM

Oh, and the new Browns are not the old Browns but they have the old Browns records :D

Confused yet? :D
