    A team would kill in Vegas.

    So.. they want to get rid of kickoffs.

    They might as well get rid of punts too. You can't have a punt return without "holding" or "block in the back" on every ****ing punt. It's completely useless to try and return a punt, save 10 yards by fair catching everything. So ****ing stupid.

    Yeah right. Can you imagine Kenny Britt living in Vegas. He gets in trouble in NASHVILLE.

    I for one will probably just stop watching when it becomes flag football - which it is quickly becomming.

    Football without big hits is not football

    I said a team would kill. Put a stadium right off the strip(Sam Boyd is way too far from the city). There would be a lot of players getting in trouble though. But the city would undoubtedly support a team.

    Really? I see the opposite. Who goes to Las Vegas: tourists. How many of the actual residents would adopt that team?

    Vegas has been hit harder by the recession than just about anyone. Except Detroit.

    I can verify this, I visited a friend that lives 10 mins away from Vegas in the summer and the job market was weak, a ton of foreclosures, and banks driving housing value down. Nashville has a higher population than Vegas by the way, and our market is growing, Vegas is shrinking.

    Rodge is definitely 'pu**ifying' the sport - but I'm not really sure he's got a choice, the NFL could easily disappear under a slew of lawsuits if it was kept the way it was under Paul.

    I would definitely prefer a somewhat 'reduced' NFL, if you will, then to no NFL. But with regards to the word 'reduced' its got limits - by talking about removing kickoffs and such, that's just too much.

    I feel the way it is now is fine. They removed all those helmet hits, defenseless player hits, huge blind-sight blocks, I won't lie, in the end it made sense.

    I mean those hits were awesome but it got the point where they really were destroying humans, both their bodies and their minds.
