@Edwerderespn

As expected but official per @ProFootballTalk, Ray Rice files grievance vs Ravens, claiming wrongful termination in addition to #NFL appeal

My 2nd favorite team is whoever is playing the Cowturds. This year they haven't done well, but they tend to finish the season strong.

I hear you on the records of the teams that the Cowboys have beaten, but let's not forget that we have lost to three of those teams (Seattle, Houston, NYG).

They have the 5-1 Arizona Cardinals after the Skins. Perhaps a little bit of an overlook this weekend?

I thought this twitter blog about fan bases was interesting.

Re: Around the NFL: Week 8 (Dallas Week)

I can't see this unless there was a whole division in Europe, and no other city is that interested. West coast teams complain now about coming east through 3 time zones, imagine going through 7 or 8. And do you exclude them from Thursday Night games, or do you play it at 1 am local time?

There is one NFL team that I know of that seems to be interested in moving to London and that is Jax. They have gone over multiple times.

I don't know. When the previous owner sold the team he was pretty big on receiving assurances from potential buyers that the team would not be moved.

Jacksonville Jaguars owner rebuffed sales pitch from Los Angeles groups - ESPN Los Angeles
Quote:
Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver announced Tuesday he had sold the team to Shahid Khan, an Illinois-based businessman from Pakistan who unsuccessfully tried to buy the St. Louis Rams last season.

Weaver had been approached by Philip Anschutz and Ed Roski in the past but refused to sell his team to the two men spearheading the NFL's return to Los Angeles. Weaver was only willing to sell the team to someone committed to keeping the team in Jacksonville and he believes Khan is that man.
Then again it doesn't seem like there was anything in writing so who knows.

It's bad enough that sometimes when West Coast teams come over to the East to play 1 PM games they're essentially playing a 10 AM game their time (also consider that they probably have to be at the stadium 3 or 4 hours before kickoff). Now imagine a West Coast team playing a 1 PM game in London which is 5 AM on the West Coast. Then again it would have some potential to work if the London team during the regular season was given their own day. Like Thursday Night Football would just turn into London games.

Right but like I said when would you play the games? Normally Thursday's game starts at 8pm Est, that is midnight or 1 am GMT(depending on daylight savings time). You going to sell tickets to an event that ends at 4 am local time, or do the visiting teams fans not get to see the game live because is on at noon on a work day. Plus you think teams complain about Thursday games now? Wait till they lose a whole day to travel. Eight hour flight plus eight hour time zone change. Would be heck of a home field advantage, because of jet lag alone.
