These young ladies are clearly offended by the Washington Redskins' team name.

Week 3 schedule.

And here's an interesting piece in the WSJ - Bengals Fans: No More Katy Perry

The move is a win for tradition, but it also is proof of a national problem. Stadium music nationwide is calcified. Most arenas and stadiums play the same songs they have been playing for years, since testosterone-fueled rock is what people expect.

I'm not sure that's really true. The rotation is hard to crack, and once you're in, your're sure to be there for a while, but the first time I heard the song below the fold, I knew it'd make that cut (and it did), but it's not testosterone-fueled rock by any stretch of the imagination.

By contrast, the Katy Perry song isn't the kind of thing that's going to pump up a stadium. Other than the "Roar" tie-in with the Bengal tiger, I don't know why they'd play it at all.

3 Republicans are now giving Fox, aka Faux News OPPO RESEARCH against Nancy Pelosi.....Ohwait, did I say Nancy Pelosi? I actually meant TED FUCKING CRUZ! So the GOP is giving the media oppo research on their own fucking conservative member!!!!!! And we are supposed to support this party? This party, if ever elected again to the White House, will actually do something good? A disgusting farce. I literally hate them.

25 Yeah, I've been to a few Redskins games in the last couple of years and they played a couple of Eminem songs, a long with a handful of recent pop songs. Yeah, it's going to be hard for someone like Katy Perry to become a stadium mainstay, but that's because she sucks, and so do her songs. "Bodies" by Drowing Pool is played in most stadiums, so are hip-hop songs.

But the reason something like "Roar" is getting banned is because the point of stadium music is to pump up the crowd, not make them suicidal.

33 Meh factor. On ONT's once in a long while someone will remind the metal reviewers that conservatives hate-hate-hated all forms of rock music well into the 70's. Everybody here was raised on pop music, thrash and punk became pop music, didn't happen in my lifetime, so nobody wants to hear it. But it happened.

As a non-catholic who still expects catholics to be catholic, let me point out that rock and pop music do not really go with football at all. Brass band music goes with football. The crowd-control music played in stadiums comes from the stadiums' legacy as (very bad) rock concert venues, not from anything in football's history. Perhaps you don't find it crass and annoying. Fine. But you can't endorse the grand traditions of football while voting for your team's rock anthem.

Thank you. Oh, and in before CAC to tell Vic that in today's market, them are "moderate'uns."  Mostly real(-ish) though, and for that, we may give thanks.

94 83 I caught part of the segment on the Richardson trade this morning. I gotta say, I don't see why there wasn't some scrutiny of that trade. It's just too bizarre for the Browns to dump their 1st rounder from ~1 yr ago for another 1st rounder without some other consideration.

Am I confusing the NFL with MLB? Hasn't the commissioner stepped in on weird trades before?

Posted by: Y-not at September 22, 2013 01:09 PM (5H6zj)

 

But then the Browns wouldn't be able to do anything.

 

And I'm starting to regret my decision that the Packers would handle the Bengals.

96 The Washington Unnamable Savages and the Baltimore Ravens both have in-house marching brass bands. When the Colts left, the band soldiered on, and were eventually rewarded by being able to play the first two Ravens seasons under their well-established name, the Marching Colts. That must have been fun.

Funny, as popular as those bands must be at the stadium, you never see them in the TV coverage. Isn't that just the damnedest thing.

Most NFL teams won't waste a first round pick on an running back.  That was the brown's mistake in 2012. Compounded by trading up to get him - they traded a 3rd 5th and 7th to move up on spot to get him.  They didn't need to Minnesota was not going to take him. They had Peterson.  its a miracle they got a first round back for him this time.

The trade that should have been stopped was Holmgren's trading up for Richardson in 2012. That guy is a total jackass.  Fine coach, but Peter principle in action with the Browns.  Wasted several drafts and carried off 40 million of the owners money that should have been spent on the Field not on his salary as the GM.

107 The league has stepped in during the ends of regular seasons to pressure teams to field the best possible players, even after they've clinched or if the teams in question would benefit from losing (for draft position), because the fans are paying to see starters. The Browns had a top draft pick who is not injured and not a disciplinary problem - if they hid either of those factors the trade could be voided - but they suddenly two games in decide to dump him for a single draft pick? Kind of crappy for the Browns fans and city of Cleveland. Now it may be that the NFL has never scrutinized trades before - I may be confusing the NFL with MLB. But if they have, this one is worth scrutiny. It's very one-sided benefit for the Colts. I have nothing against the Colts, but it's a weird trade.

They did not show up ready to play and McCarthy's play-calling was sub-par, but starting the game without Kuhn, losing Finley to a concussion, Rodgers taking several hits to the head and the knee, losing Matthews, and ending the game without a running back all contributed. So they definitely dug themselves into a hole and they deserved to lose but the injuries played a role, too.

193 184 The Packer's continual injury problem is a direct result of coaching also. I've never seen a team decimated with injury's like this McCarthy lead Packers team. Year in year out it's the same thing, yet they don't do anything in their training to address it.

I agree. The O-line also did a poor job of protecting Rodgers. If he had not chosen to slide on the play where Johnson hit him in the knee, he would be finished for the season. But while I feel he was playing injured after a certain point, he did not start the game well. Rare poor performance.

It was undoubtedly a poor performance from a team that can do better but it was only one game. I would also take Rodgers over Cutler any day of the week.

today's football lesson

week 1-  down by a score with 4 min left and you call on Jay Cutler-win!!

week 2-  down by a score with 4 min left and you call on Jay Cutler-win!!

week 3-  down by a score with 4 min left and you call on Aaron Rodgers-lose
