Yeah it's probably between them and Houston for Romo.

If I was Romo, I might be thinking that Jacksonville, Indianapolis and Tennessee is an easier path to the playoffs than Kansas, Oakland and the Chargers.


I agree and I think the Houston defence is better and younger than the Broncos. Houston could be very good with an above average QB.

NCAA College Basketball's March Madness starts today.  Probably the top sports tournament in the world...agree or disagree?

Wouldn't make the top 100 for me. Rather watch world series tiddlywinks. Still better than rugby though.

Ball hopper, you need to get out more, top flight rugby is tremendous, as for March Madness, absolutely brilliant theatre, among the best sporting event on the planet.

Was there ever a team more suited to Las Vegas though?

How does this sit with their stance on gambling I wonder? Hypocrites.

The more I've learnt about the NFL the more odeious it becomes. This relocation sh´te makes the oil money takeovers in soccer look good.

If you do your research you will find it even more repugnant, especially under the former honcho  paul Tagligabue or whatever, anuything went and everything was swept under the carpet.

As for their demands to get a superbowl, they taught FIFA how to bankrupt cities.

At least the oil companies fund it themselves, unlike the NFL billionaire owners that blackmail cities into financing a new stadium with public mone or else leave

Jerry Jones has been pushing this hard, I wonder why ??

NBA playoffs up and running. #1 seed in the East Celtics down 0-2 to the Bulls. The sister of their best player (Isaiah Thomas) died in a car crash hours before Game 1.

I was googling your man as I'd never heard of him, seems he had a regular pattern of shooting his friends.. but was only convicted of the one he killed..
