Subjugation… And Thoughts on a Las Vegas Franchise

I thought this was a fitting end to a miserable Bears season.  I asked Siri on my iPhone for the Bears’ score in the Minnesota game and this was her answer.

Recently I read that Oakland is moving to Las Vegas.  Some dopey analysts were saying that the team would struggle because it would be the 5th smallest media market.  My answer to that is – what are they smoking!

The NFL is a “post market” league.  Everyone follows it on fantasy sports and the Red Zone anyways.  The damn live games are practically unwatchable unless you are sh*t-faced because they take forever and you need to sit through 100 pickup truck and boner pill commercials.

A franchise in Las Vegas is GENIUS.  Why?  Because EVERYONE will come there when the away team comes.  Imagine fans from Chicago, Wisconsin, New York, etc… when their teams play in Las Vegas – you can combine debauchery, gambling, booze and football – what’s not to like?  I’ll bet 3/4 of the stadium will be fans of the opposing team, all drunk as skunks.  The only down side will be the presence of Oakland fans… hopefully they will be so enraged that they won’t bother to attend anymore.

  1. Hey guys. It’s been a while. It’s sad we haven’t had anything exciting to talk about lately with the Bears. I saw the Bears raised ticket prices again. I am sure you guys received the proverbial letter in the mail from Ted Phillips.

    Every year, the letter basically states: “Sorry we sucked this year. We promise this won’t happen ever again. Being one of the worst teams in football, we feel we give our fans the best value attending games at Soldier Field and therefore, we will be raising prices again. Thank you for your hard earned money and good luck trying to sell those PSL seats!!!”

Hey Let It All Out!
