Found February 10, 2012 on Oregon Sports News:
Last Saturday, Roger Goodell made his annual state of the NFL address. In it he said that while the NFL has no plans for expansion right now they wouldn’t expand by less than two teams. Now everyone knows that the most likely landing spot for a new NFL team is Los Angeles. I’m not even going to try to argue against that, there is no point. My argument is for where the other team should be placed. Call me biased but I’m going to argue that the NFL should strongly consider placing one right here in Oregon. I recently found out that the number one most viewed team on Oregon Sports News last month was the Seattle Seahawks. Not the Portland Trail Blazers or any other Oregon based team and the margin between the number one and two teams wasn’t even close.  You know what that tells me?

Fans from the northwest have a long history of being ...

New York Jets take out full-page ad congratulating Giants on Super Bowl win

Wait…how long have I been asleep?  The Jets, that other, more dysfunctional New York based football team, actually showing some humility and grace by congratulating the Giants on their Super Bowl XLVI victory with a full page ad in the NY Daily News?  What’s next, Roger Goodell and James Harrison getting hitched in California?
