Found May 08, 2012 on Fantasy Football Champs:
The Denver Broncos have fired GM Brian Xanders. Fantasy Spin: Xanders held the GM position in Denver since 2009, and will not be around to see the AFC West club defend their division title with prized offseason acquisition Peyton Manning under center. He will likely find another job in the NFL, and does have ties to Chicago GM Phil Emery (through their time spent together in the Atlanta Falcons organization, when Emery was director of scouting).

There is a billboard ripping on Tebow in Denver

Via @JetsTwitSomeone in Denver put up a billboard with Tebow’s old jersey on it making the phrase “15 minutes of fame”. 15 is of course Tebow’s number so it is a clever play on words. Tebow was traded to the New York Jets for a 4th round pick once Peyton Manning was acquired by the Broncos.

Winner Gets To Face Merton Hanks – Kill Kill Kill!

I’ll apologize at the outset for the lack of a death blow in this giraffe fight. I guess Discovery prefers not to be things like “exploitative” or “fun”. Either way, I enjoy the supreme awkwardness of this battle. It’s like the animal kingdom equivalent of a kicker fight in full pads, and they could only actually kick each other. Holy sh*t, I would pay so much money...
