It really sucks that we couldn't get a bona fide expansion team, considering how our team skipped town in the middle of the night, but I'm glad he brought football back to Baltimore.

It was bittersweet for me at first as I was a big Baltimore CFLers/Stallions and the return of the NFL meant that no CFL team could survive side by side.

Good Riddance.

I was born and raised in a little town named Wooster about an hour south of Cleveland and lived in the area for over 30 years. When he moved the Browns, that was how I felt. I still have a huge problem with it, but after this time I would rather just let my hatred go. He won his Superbowl, but I wonder if it was really worth it.

Grew up in Medina (between Cleveland & Wooster). I have to admit that hearing the news this morning was rather anticlimactic. If anything, it's a relief to hopefully to get this behind us (as a region).

Well your loss is our gain, since the Baltimore Colts/Stallions/No-Names became the Montreal Alouettes and Montreal has been lucky enough to have the best non-NFL quarterback OF ALL TIME playing here in Montreal rather than in Baltimore.

(Technically, Calvillo joined the Als after they moved from Baltimore, but the point remains.)

This is a great deal for the Eagles. Feeley is nowhere near ready to be a starting QB in the NFL. His throwing motion and mechanics need a lot of work. Watching Miami next year is going to be fun because this will be a mess.
