    Gridiron Uniform Database has the Colts wearing their alternates Monday night. Better those than the Color Rash. Still not staying up for a game between 2 teams going nowhere fast.

    The ONLY correct answer! I’ve often wondered how many people have been bribed as … I mean “served as members of” both bodies.

    It’s FIFA by quite a bit. The IOC sucks and are pretty darn corrupt, but FIFA is on another level entirely when it comes to corruption

    Qatar is such a joke. This entire World Cup is such a joke. What it needs is a good boycott.

    Why don’t a bunch of teams just walk out. Go home. Basically tell Qatar and FIFA to go f*ck themselves.

    i don’t really follow soccer but im guessing fifa would threatened to ban them from the next world cup or something ridiculous

    I understand the sentiment, but for most of the players, even the ones on good teams, this will be their only chance to accomplish a lifelong goal.

    Good point. Those people sitting in the 33rd row are sure to be offended.

    I wonder if it said “Kill” if they’d make them remove it.

    So 2 days before the game, all indications (that I have seen) still show the Giants-Cowboys in blue v blue for Thanksgiving.
    That can’t possibly happen… can it??
