    2013 NFL Thread

    Well, I've tried rooting against them for a couple years now, but regardless of how crappy that play in the post-season, when they even get to the post-season, Jerry Jones refuses to sell the Cowboys.

    So I'm gonna try something different this season:

    Romo's my guy!

    LOL, Kirkus.

    On a tangential note, I was reading an old picture book (1983 or thereabouts) by Karla Kuskin yesterday, titled The Philharmonic Gets Dressed, and one of the books listed on the back cover was The Dallas Titans Get Ready for Bed.

    I know we had the earlier parts of the story posted elsewhere, but since we've got a football thread going - Hernandez has (finally) been formally charged with 1st Degree Murder:

    Ex-Patriot Aaron Hernandez indicted on murder charge

    FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) - August 22, 2013 (WPVI) -- A Massachusetts grand jury has indicted former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez on a first-degree murder charge in the death of a man whose bullet-riddled body was found in an industrial park near his home.

    The grand jury returned the indictment Thursday. It charges Hernandez with the killing of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player who was dating the sister of Hernandez's girlfriend.

    Hernandez pleaded not guilty to murder and weapons charges in June. His lawyers say the case against him is circumstantial and they're confident he will clear his name. He's being held in jail without bail.

    Rolling Stone actually making an attempt at being journalistically relevant again, with an investigative report on Aaron Hernandez's past.

    http://www.rollingstone.com/culture/...story-20130827

    Among the reveals - he was a heavy angel dust user, surrounded himself with thugs, and his college coach, the legendary Urban Meyer, may have helped cover up failed drug tests, along with two violent incidents — an assault and a drive-by shootout outside a local bar.

    I think I saw a report about a week ago saying that Hernandez is being looked at for another murder.

    They've been trying to turn up evidence on him for weeks on a double homicide. They're still looking in the last report I heard, but don't think they've come up with much on that case yet.

    That's right. It was a double homicide.

    (CBS) SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- Police have uncovered a gun they say was used in 2012 Boston double murder, a crime they say could be linked to former Patriots star Aaron Hernandez, CBS Springfield reports. Hernandez, of Bristol, Conn., is being held without bail after being charged with first-degree murder in connection with the June death of his friend, Boston semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.

    The cover of the issue is "Dylan The Lost Years" and the photo looks almost exactly the same as the controversial Boston bomber cover.

    It's a big night: Ravens/Broncos, Djokovic/Youzhny, and a Big Brother double-eviction.

    But at least I play for a team that's good enough for it not to matter.
