    They could play in Anaheim and be the Los Angles Rams of Anaheim!

    Why? It wasn't their team to start off with. That's like saying it would be terrible to see Nashville lose it's team. I would love to see them go back to L.A.

    So the Arizona Cardinals should go back to St. Louis too?

    The Cardinals are originally from Chicago.

    And technically the Rams were originally from Cleveland before LA.

    I just see how the fans are getting a team ripped away from them. After reading most board member feelings after the Oilers left, it's hard not to feel for them. Sure LA probably felt the same way, but most Cali transplants here in San Antonio could care less about the NFL. They're all about SC.

    But most of all, I guess I'm just an LA hater.

    The Rams need to go back home and for them home is Los Angelas. I'm sorry, that's just the way it is. The Cardinals should go back to St. Louis as well but if they won't or can't then St. Louis should end up with the Jags which would pretty much mean they ended up getting the team they were shooting for following the Cardinals departure. In this scenario the only people really put out by the turn of events would be about 40 guys in Jacksonville and a bunch of tarps.

    While we're fixing things the Colts should lose their name and be forced to pick a new identity. The Ravens should ditch that stupid bird crap and become the Colts. The Titans lose all their history prior to 1996 and that goes to the Texans. In its place the Titans get to pretend that they've been around since the 60's and wear the New York Jets old uniforms as their throwback. The Jets meanwhile get their time as the Titans chopped off and have two options. They can be the Namath era Jets or the latter "modern logo" Jets and that's it. The Texans get the Oilers past but don't get the Dallas Texans past because we don't want it since it used to be in Dallas. It's soiled.

    Not sure about that. Historically the Rams have been a decent franchise and even have a Super Bowl win. Until last season the Cardinals have been one of if not the worst run franchise in sports. I have always looked at the Cardinals as the place where careers go to die.

    I think seeing the Cards in the Super Bowl last season was like seeing Haley's Comet, a once in a lifetime experience. I could be wrong but I doubt it.

    "Dont even think about it , San Antonio..that is unless you want the earth to swallow you up into the seventh level of Hell."-Jerry Jones


    STS " what do you call the training camp you will have here in July then? After all that usually makes a giant sucking sound. I assumed that it led to hell."

    Due to this post Jerry Jones has kidnapped STS and forced him to watch Hard knocks on NFLN...maybe then will he realize the greatness of the Cowboys.

    When I start hearing about teams moving the first thing I think of every time is the opening sequence of Base-ketball.

    "The Oilers moved to Tennessee where there is no oil...
    The Jazz moved to Utah where they don't allow music...
    The Minneapolis Lakers moved to LA where there are no lakes..."

    I hate to see any town lose their NFL team. It's difficult on the fans, we should know.

    But I thought Uncle Jed found oil there. That's how they could afford to move to Beverly.... Hills that is. :specnatz:

    Agree Thorn. The fans are the ones that really pay the price.

    hahaha....hey Bill, I'm just going off of what I remember from the movie, I'm no oil-tycoon. I think the South Park guys are hilarious, naturally I thought this movie was pretty funny as well but I think most people and especially sports fans would enjoy watching the first 5 minutes of it where they tear free agency a new sports-hole.
