    Artz job is to prevent 30k posts.

  • Gdog

    And to be clear… Detroit fans support their team as well as anyone.

    But the people here thinking we are going to accomplish GB or NE dynasties with Carr and the bottom-barrel management are delusional.

  • Yes Farrah Abraham, you are the most shameless celeb ever

  • nolarick

    If so, the cost of stadiums is actually a drain on league revenue.

  • Guest123

    I’ve been a long time fan, but I can’t get my kids to watch. My son loves hanging around me and will make any excuse to do things together. But he’s told me he finds NFL games to be boring. Not enough action and too many commercials. Too much of a time commitment compared to other forms of entertainment. The NFL is an archaic game compared to the video games of today. Requires a lot of patience and the payoff is too infrequent to satisfy the next generation and their short attention spans. NFL was fun back when it wasn’t so commercialized and back when there were fewer options for entertainment. As us old dinosaurs die off, the league is going to have a tough time selling the product, particularly when more and more parents refuse to expose their kids to concussions and whatnot of this brutal game.

  • Guest123

    man, so do I

  • Antwaan Randle-El article is not good for the future of football.
    this is a major problem the country is facing.

  • nolarick

    Stop poking my fantasy with a stick. Let’s just pretend that JDR is the second coming of Bill Belicheat, MD is a future Bob Kraft, DC is a future Tom Brady, etc.

  • Myopinion

    Since the season ended. I guess you call it trolling. But they’ve been putting mostly articles that we all argue about.

  • nolarick

    Meh. Very few things that were “better back in the day,” were actually better back in the day.

  • Guest123

    Some of us are happy in our delusions. There’s always hope we could strike lightning and all the planets align.

  • Gdog

    I dunno man. Its a PERFECT tv sport. Its a perfect bar-sport (people gather at tables and chat between plays and its easy to watch multiple games.)

    Fantasy football is fun and easy for everyone including casual fan chicks.

    Now we have daily contests that are hugely popular on top of it. And there will always be straight out gambling which is prolly a trillion dollar business all alone.

    What is going to replace all THAT?

    Answer: nothing.

  • Wolf is a developer, if giving the opportunity he could develop the site or another site.
    Mark is in over his head when it comes to developing a project. And project development is clearly more attractive to the city.
    Mark is stuck with nowhere to go and no skills to figure it out. He has the golden ticket though, an NFL team.

  • Gdog

    As a raider fan in the midwest that was LUCKY to see maybe 6 games a year, I agree.

  • Guest123

    They were better back in the day, when you compare to the present day. Consider that back in the day you had 3 dedicated TV channels. There were 3 major sports that marked the seasons. Things were simpler back then and so you really didn’t have as many options. So a fanbase for any particular sport was galvanized.

  • nolarick

    Meh. The neither the city nor the county are signing over land to either Wolf or MD. No land = no development. Status quo until further notice.

  • Gdog

    That made me laugh!

  • nolarick

    I’ll be here all week. Don’t forget to tip your waitress.

  • Guest123

    Fantasy football is exactly what is wrong with the sport. I’m guilty of playing it. But it’s become especially with DFS, the equivalent of 75 year old seniors tap tap tapping the slot button with glazed over eyes. We don’t watch games anymore, we watch stats. We cheer for primary RB’s to get hurt so our handcuffs become valuable. We don’t even follow rivalries or know the divisional standings anymore. It’s bullsh–

  • Gdog

    I still think once they figure out how to make soft helmets look cool we are golden.

  • Dnice24`

    It was documented that MD was putting up $300 Mil of his own money into the stadium.

    You have AEG right under their noses. Remember, AEG currently operates the current stadium and they were looking to build a stadium at levels of Kronke in downtown LA. The just wanted, 20 to 25 percent stake in that team willing to relocate.

    AEG also brought on board Farmers Insurance for the naming rights at $700 million for 30 years. I wouldn’t expect that type of deal but somewhere a bit lower, within the range I noted of 150 to 250 million

  • nolarick

    Now we have DVRs which means that I don’t watch commercials.

  • Guest123

    But be honest, in today’s instant access media age, you probably already know the outcome, skipping commercials you really aren’t sweating the game the same way as you do when you watch it live.

  • Gdog

    My brother does that for all sports… and he subscribes to the NBA and MLB tickets. I still like watching live. No way can I stay away from all media to not know the outcome before starting to watch a game.

    He went nutso when I made him watch the Raider game live with me on thanksgiving. Only had an hour of is DVR’d.

  • nolarick

    That almost never happens for me. I go on media blackout until I’ve finished watching the game. My friends all know not to discuss the scores with me till Monday. The only overlap I end up with is seeing the crawl across the screen in the suite when I go to Saints games.

  • Gdog

    My brother has it down to a science. You just have to stay away from all information services. Internet. Radio. Have dumb phone.

  • nolarick

    I do the same thing with F1 races and UFC events. Let the DVR get ahead to account for commercials before starting the game.

  • Guest123

    NFL is a Ponzi scheme. I tell ya. Unsustainable business model. Ratings won’t continue to support the product. It’s been watered down and fantasy football is it’s last bastion. And that craze will die off too I predict. It’s not enjoyable anymore because it wasn’t a decade ago that if you were resourceful you could field a killer lineup and clean up on the rookie noob owners. But nowadays, there’s so much info on-line for free, anyone can draft a team with like 10 minutes draft prep and score a championship. Eff that. There’s no enjoyment or satisfaction of following scores on Sunday and only aggravation that leads to ruined weekends if you allow yourself to care too much. FF is the devil.

  • Gdog

    Him and his son swear by it. I am too hooked into information to ever accomplish it.

  • Gdog

    Umm.. you sound really old there. (And I am old too… lol)

  • Guest123

    I won’t lie, and maybe I’m wearing down lately.

  • Gdog

    I still say the trick to fantasy is the “Only one league” rule.

    We even drafted post-season fantasy.

    I have the GHH!

  • new post.

  • Andy Kenyon

    CTE is real . I expect that within ten years major college programs will be unable / unwilling to pay the athlete’s medical insurance.

  • Gambling will be the only thing that can help sustain these levels.
    Not sure why the NFL fights it.

  • SilverandBlack666

    Yeah I agree they need to fond a way to make it socially acceptable like FF.

  • EDWARD TEACH

    The Cleveland media will have a field day with Hue. He’ll be the most popular quote in town, which is what he wants. He should be careful what he wishes for, though. He’s going to want and act like he’s in complete control, which is fine if you’re winning. He claims he got over 140 texts from coaches wanting to be on his staff. Great. That means he gets the pick of the litter so he can’t blame the assistants when things go south. It’s going to be fun to watch.

  • Alex

    haha! totally!

  • Kenny Stapler

    Hope so

  • Dan78

    No he’s done..
