NFL's Los Angeles Move Could Bring Divisional Realignment

If the Chargers and Raiders move to a shared stadium in Los Angeles—as currently appears to be the most likely outcome—the NFL will probably not want them continuing to share a division. That’s absolutely no problem, with both teams telling the league they’re willing to be moved if necessary.… » 8/18/15 11:20am 8/18/15 11:20am

How The NFL's Forgotten Christmas Albums Almost Made One Man Rich

For the entirety of my childhood, my brother, mom, and I spent one day a year—usually a Saturday two or three weeks out from Christmas—being serenaded by the 1970 Oakland Raiders. Specifically, we would spend the day putting up our Christmas tree while Daryle Lamonica, Jim Otto, and others mooed Christmas carols… » 12/16/14 3:16pm 12/16/14 3:16pm
