    PALM BEACH, FLA. — Yes, league owners and team officials began gathering here today at The Breakers hotel (indeed, it’s a capital ‘T’) and the annual NFL owners meetings will be called to order first thing Monday morning.....

    Edwards noted that when he played in the late 1970’s and early 80’s, he wore his hair in an afro but kept it stuffed in his helmet.

    wow.... this part i thought was pretty fucked up, at least the NFL doesn't show favoritism.

    This will be the sixth time the Vikings have opened against the Packers. A look at their previous meetings in season openers:

    Sept. 16, 1962: Packers 34, Vikings 7 at Green Bay (Vikings finished 2-11-1)

    Sept. 15, 1974: Vikings 32, Packers 17 at Green Bay
    (Vikings finished 10-4)

    Sept. 6, 1992: Vikings 23, Packers 20, overtime, at Green Bay
    (Vikings finished 11-5 in Dennis Green’s first season)

    Sept. 4, 1994: Packers 16, Vikings 10 at Green Bay
    (Vikings finished 10-6)

    Sept. 7, 2003: Vikings 30, Packers 25 at Green Bay
    (Vikings finished 9-7)
    and in case you didn't read it, the MNF opener is also at Lambeau this year

    Well I'm guessing a big reason behind it is this, especially lately(which I will use the metrodome as my example)

    Hmmmmmm, Lambeau Field or Metrodome, Lambeau Field, Metrodome

    Oh wait, lets play at Lambeau Field.
