It was a long night. I've been to about a half-dozen of these Hall of Fame inductions over the years and it was easily the longest night in terms of speeches. So some may have left, but I'm not really sure. It was also the smallest crowd overall (of fans) that I can remember at one of these. As for the Rams' ticket emails, are you still getting stuff?
Not sure on that. Won't it be Austin once he's healthy?
Yes. No. 5) A multi-billionaire emerges in St. Louis who just loves football.
I'd say 57-43 he tops 1,000. I think he has enough pride to rebound from 2016.
Yeah, that may have been the headline. They should be coming to town at some point. But there are local lawyers here working for the Rams/NFL to take care of the everyday stuff. Sorry for any confusion.
Not sure about the stadium capacity, but I do know the Cole Camp Blue Birds open up this Friday at Concordia.
Don't think Cleveland sued. In terms of tax support for a new stadium, I think Malibu Stan has sufficiently poisoned the waters that it would be tough sledding. Personally, I would vote yes.
Haven't really heard. But there must be a reason why they're selling fewer this year, don't you think.
The 50 Worst was updated at the end of last season, so if he's on that list that's where he belongs. The 50 Best hasn't been updated in a year or so. There have been a few players who have bounced back and forth on the fringes of the two lists over the years. I think Brian Quick was among them at one time who made both lists (in different years).
He wants to become the highest-paid player in the league, at least in the non-QB division.
I think there's an agreement between the CFL and NFL at this point not to invade each other's turf. I would love to see an American division _ perhaps St. Louis, Oakland, San Diego, and let's say San Antonio. But who knows how it would draw. I think if St. Louis ever got that MLS team and stadium it could use it for a stadium long-term. And the dome is available for football short-term, I would think.
Hah. I think Favre would if he wanted to come out of retirement. Again.
Yeah, keep in touch. And P.S. _ when you get the money, Isaac Bruce would like to be involved.
Wait a minute. Was that some TV show you're referring to?
Must be lots of practice throws. Although there are no two-a-days any more.
Well, in St. Louis he'd be No. 1, that's for sure. And I think he'd rank ahead of Al Davis on any list, that's for sure.
I guess. Didn't watch much TV in the '80s, except maybe Miami Vice in the late 80s.
We'll they're still pretty good. And could be very good if they can revive their running game. But those Legion of Boomers in the secondary are starting to age.
Yeah, but Spanos is a California guy. And I think some NFL owners feel they'd always be second bananas in St. Louis behind the baseball Cardinals.
Sure there's concern. It's been a tough year in the sports industry all the way around. (See: ESPN) And some excellent writers and reporters _ some of the best in the business _ have been affected. Reporting already has changed dramatically in I'd say the last 10-15 years, first with the onset of the Internet and then social media. But I think there's still a place for what I call "original journalism" being in the locker room, watching practice, talking to players, providing perspective that you can't otherwise get.
