I notice that 27 of the 32 NFL sides are on there.  The 5 sides who somehow managed to be worse than the Browns and the Jaguars are ... the Raiders, Bills, Bengals, Lions & Rams.

Quite incredible given the Raiders' merchandising power that they can't manage to be on there.

Where by NFL you mean a federally mandated and protected monopoly to generate guaranteed profits for a very small number of the 1%... land of the free indeed!

Well no more or less than the NBA or MLB but yes, if we want to go down that road.


Still ...

ohh... absolutely. It's shocking having to explain my frustration at the absence of relegation from soccer over here again and again, and what a pyramid league structure is. Nevermind actually suggesting it should be introduced to the NFL/MLB/NBA :bang:

The Raiders are hamstrung by their current stadium situation, and their direct competition with the 49ers doesn't help either. Plus, their fans smuggle in their own food and booze, so they lose out on all that concession money :D

And once the Rams get their stadium built in LA, they'll be top 5 on that list.


Didn't expect to see the Celtics ahead of Arsenal!
