    Haven't heard that term in about a decade.
    Do they still call Minny that?
    I thought that the crime rate went way down since the 90's.

    I haven't heard it for awhile either

    I think Minneapolis ranks 12th in murders

    And Crime is 14th

    Something like that?

    Fairly high yes

    But not enough to warrant the nickname

    I came up with 23rd for 2007, 13 murders for every 100,000. Houston is 17th with 16 murders for every 100,000.

    I'm seeing that Minneapolis is 25th for crime on that site.

    And Houston is 18th.

    Minneapolis wins.

    Edit: NYC is 51st... WOO HOO!!!!

    I think this is the first time that the weekly opponent trash talk has been mostly about which city is better.
    LOL.

    Crime rates have gone way down nationally since the early 90s.

    Actually... I remember getting into the same discussions/arguments with a Philly fan last season I think.

    They were about as classy as a gold tooth on a rat.

    Nothing wrong with badgering a Philly fan... Now that you mention it, wasn't one guy planning on going to the Eagle bar (gay bar) unknowingly? ha ha.


    The Texan fan base is a good one though.
    I wasn't trying to insult them, just giving them shit...then they come back and make me feel guilty for doing it.
    If it was a Philly type fan I would feel good about putting them down.

    Agreed, Philly fans are a totally different breed.

    And yes... it was a gay bar. That was hilarious.

    CBS chose to broadcast the Jets vs. Bills game in Dallas instead of the Vikings vs. Texans game. That is pathetic Houston fans.
