Fox Power Ranking Hilarity

This has nothing to do with the Skins (except to point out Fox Sports has them ranked 9th), but it was too funny and football related not to share. This was the quote to go along with the Lions' dreadful ranking:

"I'm glad the stadium security got rid of that guy with the "Fire Millen" sign, because we can't have this kind of negativity around our football team. Millen's doing a fine job, he just needs a coach whose style fits these players. In other news, Oceania is at war with Eastasia and has always been at war with Eastasia, and the Ministry of Plenty announces that it is canceling chocolate rations."

Yes, I know Im a nerd, but how often do you get classic sci-fi dystopia references in sports news!!!

Remember, it's based on an ambiguous points system.

9th?????? Ok what ever they say. I hope we can live up to that. I think we can. But it just feels weird for fox to think so.

Re: Fox Power Ranking Hilarity

These power rankings take into account the strength of schedule so that's why the Skins are ranked so high.

Early in the season when last year's schedule is taken into account, this poll doesn't make much sense. But at this time of year this poll actually makes more sense, and I'm not just saying that because the Skins are #9.
