    What do you guys think about this? Personally I'm all for the NFL making spots and 1st downs more accurate which is what I thought it was about. Turns out its just for a visual reference... Coming from somebody that watched a game from an endzone at a game, I had no issues telling where the first down markers were. They are pretty easy to see as is.

    I can't even fathom why the league wouldn't implement that, other than that Goodell is bent on doing absolutely everything wrong.

    A laser that would visable from the upper deck would have to be pretty damn powerfull and I can't imagine what would happen if you fall and your eyes get blinded by it?

    Thats exactly what I thought. They could use projection though.

    I always thought it would be cool that some day the fields had fiber optic systems in them.

    May be the off-season, but it only gets worse for the Cowboys http://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/sports/187991211.html

    Hell, he played only like half the season, and now Jay Ratliff's getting DUI's. Lovely.

    Oh, and Jamarcus Russell is looking to make a comback.

    I don't....I mean...yeah. Isn't he broke or something?

    Didn't he get caught with purple drank a couple months ago? Good luck Russell. No one is even going to give him the time of day after his legendarily poor work ethic and incredibly stupid brain.

    If Russell returns I hope to god he stays away from Oakland.

    Though knowing our luck, he'll return and be the second coming of Jesus and everyone will go "Why did you guys get rid of him?" Ah sod's law.

    yea I was thinking maybe the Cowboys should go to the 4-3 since all their NTs are drunks

    or they could get Russell to play NT, he's over 300lbs, wait no, same problem

    now they're saying some Washington players were targeted by fake interweb girls, they keep calling it "catfishing" every time I see an article that mentions an attempt to "catfish" or someone getting "catfished" I just get hungrier and hungrier

    Hopefully it was just "targeted" and didn't fall for it. So stupid. Skype and shit like facetime exists. No excuses.

    I'll take it. Though Jones won't go for something like that I'm sure, he's not smart enough to coax Jon Gruden into coaching again.

    by kicking high into the air Brady made it clear his socks were in compliance with uniform regulations, obviously this was his goal

    although "sources" are saying he will get a $10k fine

    Hey man. Hey. The NFL takes its uniform policy very, very seriously. You don't fuck with the shield and nothing tarnishes the shield more than some incorrectly worn socks.

    I'm just ashamed that I didn't even notice the low socks. Clearly I'm not a diehard football fan. I will try to do better during the Super Bowl.

    Wow dude you didn't notice the disgrace to the NFL with his low socks? Don't even watch the super bowl man, just sit and think about what kind of fan you really want to be.
