In Landmark Decision, U.S. Patent Office Cancels Trademark For Redskins Football Team

Just in case you have not heard yet. Also, on a related note, I have found the silver lining in the name debate issue.

I have seen some of our regulars develop from one liner commenters to writers with paragraphs and complete sentences! Maybe it is not worth all the grief that comes with this subject, but it makes me smile. Who needs the debate club when you could be a member of the Hogs Haven community?

Zac Stacy not guaranteed St. Louis Rams' starting job –

This is more of a concerning story for all of you fantasy players out there. Stacy is competing with the Rams third round pick Tre Mason.
