I'm watching the NFL Today on CBS and they're promoting The Move, a dramatization of the Colts moving in the middle of the night to Indianapolis set to air during Super Bowl Sunday. A scene was shown of young movers gathered at Baltimore's locker room being told not to ask questions and load everything that wasn't nailed down onto trucks. The movers looked distraught.

This seems interesting but what the hell is going on here? Why would the NFL's signature event feature one of the most reviled events in league history, drawing criticism to relocation when it that trend continues today and leaves some fan bases embittered and alienated from the sport?

Future installments will include a segment on Al Davis and scenes showing officials in St. Louis making payments on the remaining debt owed on the Rams former stadium.

The Chicago Bears should be allowed to play games that go for six quarters.

With the league instructed to disregard the results of the first two quarters.

Meanwhile, from all appearances, Riverboat Ron is still in charge of the Panthers special teams.
