A group of retired NFL players says in a lawsuit filed Tuesday that the league, thirsty for profits, illegally supplied them with risky narcotics and other painkillers that numbed their injuries for games and led to medical complications down the road.

The league obtained and administered the drugs illegally, without prescriptions and without warning players of their potential side effects, to speed the return of injured players to the field and maximize profits, the lawsuit alleges. Players say they were never told about broken legs and ankles and instead were fed pills to mask the pain. One says that instead of surgery, he was given anti-inflammatories and skipped practices so he could play in games. And others say that after years of free pills from the NFL, they retired from the league addicted to the painkillers.

...

The drug lawsuit names eight players, including three members of the NFL champion 1985 Chicago Bears: Hall of Fame defensive end Richard Dent, offensive lineman Keith Van Horne and quarterback Jim McMahon. Lawyers seek class-action status, and they say in the filing that more than 500 other former players have signed on to the lawsuit.

Taxpayers finished paying off Sports Authority in Jan. 2012. Only taking 11 years (Jan. 2001 - Jan. 2012).

Looks like taxpayers in Minnesota will be on the hook for a lot more than that.

Brand new shiny any stadium gets you a SB.

Miami and Nola have fallen away.

Better put that one in a plastic sleeve and a cool, dark place. Could be worth a fortune one day.

Eh, it isn't really that bad in Minnesota, especially the Twin Cities.

I tend to agree will Bill Simmons' thinking about Super Bowl locations:
Quote:
There should be five trademarks for every Super Bowl experience. This is not negotiable. Here are the five:

1. Warm weather.

2. Serviceable stadium.

3. A downtown that's easy to get around.

4. Fun things to do at night.

5. A city that gives you that "Wow, what a city!" feeling.

Under this logic, only three cities should ever host the Super Bowl: San Diego, New Orleans and Miami. And you know what? I'm fine with that! Seriously, who isn't OK with those cities? So we rotate between the three of them ... and if they ever allow Vegas to host a Super Bowl, then we make it a foursome.

PErsonally I don't have a problem with it as I doubt I'll ever get to go and at least it's indoors (I don't want elements effecting a championship personally).

That said, I am already making plans to be in AZ during this years SB. I have friends there, and I can above hope we get to play the game and I can partake in some local festivities. I can't imagine the misery of going to see the game in Minnesota. Spending the whole week indoors, freezing any other time. Not much of a fun vacation.

I dislike it not for the game or the players, but for the people attending.

No it is not. It is significantly warmer in the Twin Cities than it is in Fargo and even our average temperature isn't that bad. I'd say that ~ 20 is the average. Google says 15.

It has been much warmer out this way lately.
