This is so ridiculous it's just funny!! I'm just sitting here laughing my @ss off and shaking my head. I mean honestly...what's next? New teams entering the league are gonna have to choose between fuscia, turquoise and olive green for their uniforms because the Raiders have a monopoly on silver and black. What a joke!!

I like the little blurb about how if the Raiders go to Tampa that the Bucs might suggest they put "daisys" on their uniforms. LOL!

The Raider Fans will beat you up and urinate on you for not agreeing to this.

Also, Al Davis needs more surgery.

Then the Seahawks, Falcons, and Cardinals will sue you for not mentioning them as well. :-)

Then the Lions vs. Jaguars vs. Bengals vs. Panthers for all being members of the cat family.

Then the Browns will.....um.... Oh yeah, they're the only "color" team. :-)

Next up Al Davis will try to get all intimidating mascots banned because they are too much like the Raiders. Then we will have games like the Raiders vs. the Tampa Bay Fuzzy Bunnie Slippers. I love to hate Al Davis but with stunts like this he is just getting pittiful. If you can't beat a team you can't beat a team. Period. Uniforms don't matter. Somebody tell Al to shut up.....Again!

Hold on a sec here. The McCoffee incident is well known, but the McFacts aren't. Jay Leno gags aside, consider ....

McFact No. 1: For years, McDonald's had known they had a problem with the way they make their coffee - that their coffee was served much hotter (at least 20 degrees more so) than at other restaurants.

McFact No. 2: McDonald's knew its coffee sometimes caused serious injuries - more than 700 incidents of scalding coffee burns in the past decade have been settled by the Corporation - and yet they never so much as consulted a burn expert regarding the issue.

McFact No. 3: The woman involved in this infamous case suffered very serious injuries - third degree burns on her groin, thighs and buttocks that required skin grafts and a seven-day hospital stay.

McFact No. 4: The woman, an 81-year old former department store clerk who had never before filed suit against anyone, said she wouldn't have brought the lawsuit against McDonald's had the Corporation not dismissed her request for compensation for medical bills.

McFact No. 5: A McDonald's quality assurance manager testified in the case that the Corporation was aware of the risk of serving dangerously hot coffee and had no plans to either turn down the heat or to post warning about the possibility of severe burns, even though most customers wouldn't think it was possible.

McFact No. 6: After careful deliberation, the jury found McDonald's was liable because the facts were overwhelmingly against the company. When it came to the punitive damages, the jury found that McDonald's had engaged in willful, reckless, malicious, or wanton conduct, and rendered a punitive damage award of 2.7 million dollars. (The equivalent of just two days of coffee sales, McDonalds Corporation generates revenues in excess of 1.3 million dollars daily from the sale of its coffee, selling 1 billion cups each year.)

McFact No. 7: On appeal, a judge lowered the award to $480,000, a fact not widely publicized in the media.

McFact No. 8: A report in Liability Week, September 29, 1997, indicated that Kathleen Gilliam, 73, suffered first degree burns when a cup of coffee spilled onto her lap. Reports also indicate that McDonald's consistently keeps its coffee at 185 degrees, still approximately 20 degrees hotter than at other restaurants. Third degree burns occur at this temperature in just two to seven seconds, requiring skin grafting, debridement and whirlpool treatments that cost tens of thousands of dollars and result in permanent disfigurement, extreme pain and disability to the victims for many months, and in some cases, years.

DD calm down there buddy. im not saying they shouldnt have given her $$$. they should pay her for medical bills and some for pain and suffering.

just that i doubt it was her first time getting coffee there so she should have known better and her LAWYERS went for the jugular. i feel bad for the lady cuz ive dealt with nasty chemical burns that turned black and rotted my skin away and that left me scarred. so i can imagine what the poor woman went through.

the point is the lawsuit has become the founding joke of frivilous lawsuits whether it was or not.
