So you have probably the greatest historical football franchise in the Cowboys and a Mavericks team with the most exciting owner and a franchise that's been contending for many years now and you think its a bad sports city?

Also, can you explain to me why they just don't call it the Dallas Rangers? So what if they play in Arlington? Or is because of the actual "Texas Rangers"?

The same Eagles fans that were cheering and jeering are the same Eagles fans that were booing Donovan Mcnabb and the rest of the team just a few weeks ago... And these are the same Eagles fans who will turn on their own team again when they get beat in the playoffs.

I, for one, still want McNabb/Reid gone.

But Dawk= King.

Cry me a river

Detroit is horrible in general. Bad city, bad teams, bad owners, bad business, bad mayor...

Lets break it down.

Detroit Lions - WORST record EVER in the NFL. This is a record that will stand for eternity.

Detroit Tigers - Just a few years ago, they were one loss away from the WORST record EVER in the MLB... just one game. Then just this past season, they have the second highest payroll in the majors, and fall flat on their ass at the bottom of the division.

Michigan Wolverines - they were the lossers of the BIGGEST upset EVER in sports. Appalachian State anyone? That was last year. This past season was actually worse. Believe it.

Detroit Pistons. - The Atlanta Braves/Buffalo Bills of the NBA. Close but no cigar. Second Place is the first looser... blah blah... oh and now this year is even worse as the Pistons have traded their legendary PG for cap relief. What was a second place team is now a second thought...

And as everyone is saying, Hockey and womens pro basketball don't count. Detroit is actually winners in these sports. But winning in the NHL or WNBA is like going undefeated in preseason

So all you suckers quit yer whinning....

Detroit - the city of loosers... on AND off the field.

They are named after the Texas Rangers and have always been in Arlington since their move from Washington DC in 1971.

Also, Cowboys havent played in Dallas since 1971 and moving to Arlington next year.

what are you kidding? we have titles in hockey and football. there are cities where teams have barely ever even made it to the playoffs. never mind its also a bad ass city to live in.

and these fools attacking hockey. you guys have no clue. you do realize that when you combine the viewership of the US and Canada (like they do with movie takes) that the NHL regularly BEATS the NBA?

Don't matter…

In terms of relevancy, NFL preseason >>>>>>> NHL

as evident in this very thread… NHL is about as relevant as WNBA.

adding more games has been talked about alot the past few years...

the NFL just brings in too much $$$....I could see a 18 game season happening in the future...

but it might be 20+ years before a team loses all 18 of them...

Yup, when the NFL expands the season, it will be to 18 so the owners don't get screwed in lost revenue that an odd amount of games would create.

and the Lions will be there to loose all 18 games when that time comes (which will probably be very soon)
