There was something wrong in that Bills dressing room. The Thurmon Thomas helmet thing was always fishy to me. Somebody was trying to make him look like a fool.

In the 2nd loss, to the Skins he missed the first 2 plays of the game because he couldn't find his helmet. He ended up with 13 yards on 10 carries.


Quote:
Thurman Thomas, the angry young man of Super Bowl XXVI, has turned pacifist for Super Bowl XXVII.

Gone is the chip on his shoulder of a year ago -- the one he dared anyone to knock off.

Gone, too, is the shrill blast of discord on the Buffalo Bills. It's been replaced by the light, harmonious note of unity.

Not gone, though, is the nightmarish memory of the lost helmet. Thomas' lost helmet.

When someone unwittingly moved his helmet from the spot he had left it moments before the Bills' offense took the field against the Washington Redskins last year, the veteran running back was forced to sit out the first two plays of Super Bowl XXVI.

And if that is his fate, to live in Super Bowl infamy because of a misplaced helmet, Thomas sounded resigned to that fate yesterday.

Asked if he thought the memory of the lost helmet might disappear with a Buffalo victory over the Dallas Cowboys in SuperBowl XXVII Sunday, Thomas said, "Probably not. I know what the first headline is going to be: 'Bills win Super Bowl -- Thurman Thomas finds helmet.' "

I was only 4 and didn't know any player names but the first game I vividly remember watching was the game Majkowski got injured. Was replaced by a guy I'd find out later was named Brett Favre. The rest is history. Cheesehead for life

Pats fan since 04, I just started to get into football, for me at that age I found the sport so stupid since the clock continued to run and I'm just thinking there wasting time. But I really got into the sport after seeing the Pats playoff run and then witnessing them winning the superbowl. I always loved Tom Brady, especially for his wife

Bills and Giants.

My dad is a Giants fan from back around the early 60s or so, so he brought me up as a Giants fan. In high school (mid 80's) I started to play on the school team, and followed the NFL much closer. At that time I became a Bills fan since they were becoming a very strong and exciting team to watch.

I truly hope we can get an NFL team here one day. I have no doubt we will get one, its just a matter of when. I wish we could trade the Craptors for an NFL team.

Patriots Fan and Manning/Broncos (de facto) fan.

I also really enjoyed Tebow-mania, mostly because I was able to troll everyone in my fantasy pool by starting him at QB last year (and still managing to win my games...).

Would really love to see Toronto take that next step in becoming a world class city we need a new state of the art NFL stadium and an NFL team so Toronto NFL fans can enjoy watching our own team compete against other world class NFL cities teams featuring the best football players in the world!!

We need to encourage the new MLSE ownership group to pursue asap an NFL team for Toronto they have the money to get it done!!
Please. Toronto isn't a "world class" city because we don't have an NFL venue? Don't give me that Canadian inferiority complex-riddled attitude. We aren't getting a team anytime soon. Furthermore, how exactly are the likes of Buffalo, Jacksonville, Cleveland, Baltimore etc.. world class cities ?

Sure some top-notch cities like Chicago and San Francisco have teams, but I don't see how it makes us lack legitimacy as a metropolis. I would like to retain the Argonauts if an NFL team does show up. Getting rid of the oldest professional franchise in North America would not sit well with me, even if I am a bigger NFL fan, and only a casual CFL fan.

As far as the thread is concerned, I am a Steelers fan. I have been since Rod Woodson donned the cleats. I was heartbroken when we lost the Super Bowl against the Cowboys in '95, and also pretty devastated in '11 against the Pack.

I've always thought that maybe if/when we get an NFL, we name them the Toronto Argonauts. In effect just shift the history and tradition of the Argos over to the NFL. You wouldn't have to bring the retired numbers and records over since its a different league all-together, but keep the logo, colours, jerseys, etc.

We'd probably transfer their ineptitude over to the new team.

Release your #1 RB w/o any compensation or trade? Sure, sounds good man

Or maybe we barter off the Raps for a lowly/ snakebitten franchise?

It's tough being a Toronto sports fan

Yea I hear you.

I stopped caring for the CFL a while ago. I respect the quality of the league as 2nd best to the NFL, and I knew several players personally who coached my football team about 5 years ago. But I just can't take it as seriously as the NFL, mainly because there's only 8 teams. I just don't see the great joy in being the best of 8 teams at something, especially when 6/8 make the playoffs. Even my men's league soccer team competes in a league of 12.

I've been a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan since the day of Roger Staubach.



PS. The Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders may have drawn me in originally as well.
