Whoops, sorry I forgot about Atlanta in '99 (this was during the period I lost interest in the sport (post C4 , pre Sky - for me)

Re the LA situation, I still have this feeling that it will be the Rams who go back there as St Louis is a relatively small city and I believe the other reason they moved there was due to their owner at the time Georgia Frontierie who I believe came from St Louis and who has subsequently passed away.

Maybe this is wishful thinking as I had a big soft spot for the Rams whilst at Anaheim (LA) and the days of Eric Dickerson breaking the all time single season rushing record (84-85?) and I supported them prior to switching to the Eagles in the late eighties.

It would also mean potentially losing one of those souless dome stadiums!!! :p

And all because Art Modell is a greedy, nasty piece of work.

And the fact he thanked the people of Cleveland after winning Super Bowl XXXV just rubbed salt in the wounds.

Having seen that LeBron James thing it made me think actually the other day... Loads of people say a few NBA drafts have been rigged (I'm only talking about it because the clip is featured in here by the way)... But I find it ironic how Cleveland got the number one pick the year a massive Cleveland Cavaliers fan from Ohio was the only real choice to come out of the draft as first pick! :eek:

I'll never forget the picture in Sports Illustrated of their "last" game in Cleveland. A guy in the dogpound had a sign that simply said, "Burn in Hell Art Modell".

Conveyed the message very clearly.

Without reading the link, if that says about the 100-0 basketball game, the best quote I saw was that "they got a bit carried away"

:D

Thank God.

Last season's opener knocked Tom Brady out of football. He's hoping next season's launches his comeback.

Brady expects to be ready for the New England Patriots' first game of the 2009 season, the Boston Globe reported on Monday. He suffered a season-ending knee injury in last season's first game and has had multiple procedures and battled infection since then. There was some question whether he would be ready for the opener.

Brady is on pace with his rehabilitation and is even dropping back and throwing passes, a medical source told the Globe. Citing medical and NFL sources, the newspaper reported that no further procedures are scheduled on Brady's left knee.

"Based on anybody else doing an ACL rehab, he's going right along," a source said, according to the Globe. "He had a shaky start, but he's caught up."

The newspaper reported that Brady is throwing, running, doing drills and getting in shape. The source told the Globe that Brady still has some "laxity" in his medial collateral ligament, some stiffnes and has not recovered complete range of motion. None of those issues are unusual, however, considering the severity of his injury.

The Patriots are reportedly still considering using the franchise tag on quarterback Matt Cassel, who led the team to an 11-5 record last season.
Let me just count our first round picks as 2 right now ;)

Benzhiyi 28-01-2009 01:51 PM

No one is giving you a first for Cassel. Sorry.

pauldrulez 28-01-2009 02:02 PM

Not going into this again.

But I am willing to stake that they will. And another pick too.

pauldrulez 28-01-2009 02:04 PM

In fact, i'll go further and say (I'll make it clear unlike the Dallas one):

If the New England Patriots do not receive a pick between Numbers 1 and 32 OR a combination of picks and players worth over a first rounder from a team for Matt Cassel, I will never post in this thread again.

pauldrulez 28-01-2009 04:31 PM

I'm deadly serious on this one as well, not half jokingly like the Dallas one.

Any insider info Paul?

BTW the Eagles already have two picks in the first! But as usual they probably won't have on Draft night :(
