The Giants saw all four of their games against the NFC North go ‘under’ this season.
Green Bay was 3-1 to the ‘under’ versus the NFC East this season, with Washington
outscoring GB 42-24 with a total posted at 48.
Chargers may not be the only NFL team that gets the heck outta Dodge.
The Raiders are trying to relocate to Vegas & they’ve made “impressive” progress,
so sayeth one very high-level, powerful NFL executive decision maker…
Repeating the message that came down from on high, Mr. Eric Grubman said progress
Raiders have made on LV deal is “impressive.”

The Raiders looked to be on schedule toward their move.
They have the necessary funding for a proposed $1.9 billion,
$60,500-seat domed stadium in Las Vegas.
They have secured $750 million in public money,
$650 million from casino magnate Sheldon Adelson
and Raiders owner Mark Davis has pledged to contribute $500 million.
Influential owners such as the Dallas Cowboys Jerry Jones
and New England Patriots Robert Kraft have indicated support for the move.
However, some owners worried about having a significant gambling presence
in the Raiders ownership structure, are balking at Adelson’s involvement.
There’s a early movement toward having the stadium financed
without Adelson’s involvement.
“It would have to be in compliance with our rules,” Art Rooney,
owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and chairman of the league’s
stadium committee, told reporters Wednesday.
“The Raiders are looking at the potential of doing it
without Adelson if it comes down to that.”
The Raiders want to get the heck out after failing to
con, then bribe with kickbacks the Oakland taxpayers
to secure funding to build a new stadium in Oakland.
Davis & Adelson continue to negotiate the stadium deal,
Davis has until Feb. 15 to officially file for relocation.
If Davis files for relocation, a vote could take place in
late March at the NFL owner’s meetings.
Seventy-five percent (24 of 32) of the league’s owners
must support the proposal for approval.
