Why do those eagles-fans even protest? It's completely pointless. They say that Chip is sacred for them but he doesn't even belong to them. Their time has passed long ago when the New York Football Giants ate their lunch and now they are nothing but a vocal group of insane people. They should just integrate into society and start rooting for America's team.

The Giants don't eat our lunch. They slip into the playoffs and somehow son the patriots into oblivion but we constantly embarrass them (for whatever that's worth) when we actually meet up in the autumn.

Ah yes: look at this passionate sea of blue and white at Jerry world: http://static4.businessinsider.com/imag ... -jones.jpg

The problem with that study is that they measure ticket revenue which is really just a function of the Cowboys having an absurdly large stadium because their owner is an eccentric oil tycoon. What they fail to take into account is that the majority of Cowboys season ticket holders apparently turn around sell their home opener tickets to 49er fans.

The Comrade wrote:casinos improve the communities though. the onodoga and oneida nations, for example, are thriving largely thanks to casinos and other business ventures the casinos led to. i don't see how that means they just wanted a kickback, nor how that invalidates their criticism of this deal.

Yes some casinos do generally improve communities they're located in, that's were the disconnect comes from since you'd be hard pressed to see any improvement on San Carlos, like I said.
Next, Oak Flats camp ground that isn't even on tribal land, it's in Tonto National Forrest. I'm not a fan of mines, due to what happens to the land. But the fact remains they have no say in the matter.
