Some Traditions Must End......................

16 posts in this topic

Detroit Lions EVERY Thanksgiving. Am I alone here??? Cowboys are supposedly Americas team, that's fine. I am OK with them playing every year. But something needs to be done with the other game. I am all for giving it to an AFC team. Patriots, maybe? Anyone have any other suggestions?

BTW, the reason I say the Patriots is because it is kind of symbolic Americana, and Thanksgiving happened in New England, so it kind of makes sense.

I don't think any team should have a lock on Thanksgiving Day games. Either rotate them or treat it like Monday night games where they try to come up with match-ups that have some national interest.

I think it goes to back in the day when it started. The cowgirls and kitties were the only teams interested in this. So it was setup that they would host forever I guess. It would be nice to change that.

Oh I don't know, you are probably only going to make a couple of thousand fans sick that day. I don't think they've sold out yet this year have they?

Agreed, and everyone including the dogs at our house knows how crabby I am when I don't get my Thanksgiving Day nap in! wink

I like the tradition.

And, from what I heard, they were the only two teams to agree to it many years ago.

I say, let the tradition win!!

Maybe Detroit will finally win one!!

It should be fun to watch the fans with the brown paper bags over their heads. You know your team stinks when fans do this.

I think the Saints, or should I say the old Aints fans started that back in the day.

    • Hotspot outdoors of course!
    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
    • 2 baldies were getting it on last thursday about 100 yards from where we were fishing. pretty cool. spring is in the air... LOL
    •   Too late. It's now undergoing the digestive process as I type   This is first rabbit dinner I've had since my early 20's and I'm going to be 57 this year. I shot them while grouse hunting this fall and winter but haven't specifically targeted them since I was much younger. I've never heard of anyone really going after them anymore
