Have they found a way to make this sport entertaining yet?

Funny you should ask, during the offseason the rules committee is going to study replacing the end zones with tiny nets and goalies so no one ever scores.  They'll call it sockey

So more like real football?
This sounds like a sport that will require real athletes.
What will the ADD viewers do when a play lasts longer than 5 seconds?
SO MANY QUESTIONS!

Golf would be more interesting with goalies. 
Are we having fun yet?

I thought Baltimore was the most entertaining team this season, I have to say I was rooting for them on the AFC side. Sad to see them go.

So happy to see my Pack in the conference final. But the 49ers smoked them in the regular season, so Packers playing away from home is concerning. But who knew a head coach can make such a difference. I hated Mike McCarthy and thought he always made his team underachieve, so many wasted prime Rogers years in staying with McCarthy,  :-\ Nice to see Jimmy Graham have a big game as this season he really looked like he didn't have it anymore, good for him with one big hurrah during playoff time

What if the golfer, after hitting the ball, could throw his club at the goalie?

Saw my first Nevada Raiders license plate today.  Good riddance. 

Too bad their fans don't all move with them.

You wouldn't believe how many people I hear in Virginia that are hyped about the Raiders in Las Vegas.  I guess it will be the new "bandwagon" team.  :P  I guess some are sick of the Redskins.  God this state sucks when it comes to sports fans.   ::)

I don't think Nevada has a state income tax, which would be very appealing to players, especially free agents. 

With their poor personnel and head coach decisions, I envision them loading up with huge contracts for over-the-hill players.  First up, Tom Brady?

Being in a state without income tax certainly has its benefits but some, if not all, states that have a state tax collect that for games played in their state.  California started that back in 1991.  Cities like Philadelphia even charge their city tax.

Carr would have to be benched or traded, etc.  BUT!  Signing Brady would rake in more cash.  I don't see Brady leaving NE though.  Who knows any more?  It could happen.

There are a bunch of free agent QBs this year. Brady, Brees, Tannehill, Winston. Marriota, Rivers and I am probably forgetting a couple.  You know that the Bengals are going to for that kid from LSU but there is a lot of talent on the market this year. 

Maybe the Bears could get a QB.
