The WEEI Big show crew were sure to inform Bill Belichick about this on his regular Monday segment...his response was "really, he said that?".

Thats as much disrespect as they'll need.

Yes, I know. I didn't feel like going back over 40 years. I also left out the two times the Washington Senators were moved.

the washington senators became the minnesota twins, then they gave them a new washington senators, and they moved and became the texas rangers.

deadline till the washington nationals move? 10 years.

the oakland a's started in philly, then moved to kansas city before finaly going to oakland.

the clippers actually started in buffalo as the buffalo braves.

the franchise that would become the yankees actually originated in baltimore.

Headache, you're the man. Like I said I didn't feel like going back that far. Shit, look at the NBA. The Clippers I think were in some other cities too.

There was also the Boston Globe story a couple of days ago titled "Merriman predicts victory for Chargers"

http://www.boston.com/sports/footbal..._for_chargers/

Although when you read it, you have to think that Merriman just didn't know what the word "prognostications" meant.

Kitten, this one's for you especially.

Pro Sports teams that have moved:
NFL:
Oakland Raiders-LA Raiders-Oakland Raiders
Baltimore Colts-Indianapolis Colts
Cleveland Browns-Baltimore Ravens
LA Chargers-San Diego Chargers
LA Rams- St. Louis Rams
St. Louis Cardinals-Phoenix Cardinals-Arizona Cardinals
Houston Oilers-Tennessee Titans

NBA:
Minneapolis Lakers- LA Lakers
San Diego Clippers- LA Clippers
New Orleans Jazz- Utah Jazz
Charlotte Hornets- New Orleans Hornets
Vancouver Grizzlies- Memphis Grizzlies
New York Nets- NJ Nets

NHL:
St. Louis Scouts- Colorado Rockies- New Jersey Devils
Winnepeg Jets- Phoenix Coyotes
Quebec Nordiques-Colorado Avalanche
Hartford Whalers- Carolina Hurricanes
Minnesota North Stars- Dallas Stars
Atlanta Flames- Calgary Flames

MLB:
Montreal Expos- Washington Nationals
NY Giants- SF Giants
Brooklyn Dodgers- LA Dodgers
LA Angels- California Angels- Anaheim Angels- LA Angels of Anaheim
Milwaukee Braves- Atlanta Braves
Seattle Pilots- Milwaukee Brewers

The NFL cardinals started out in Chicago actually prior to St Louis.
The Redskins started in Boston.
NBA's Washington Wizards(Bullets) were once the Baltimore Bullets
The Golden State Warriors once played in Philly
As did the Oaklands Athletics of MLB
The Milwaukee Braves were previously the Boston Braves
2 versions of the Washington Senators have relocated becoming the Minnesoata Twins and Texas Rangers

And there are several other examples

Teams making more significant moves, in chronological order
-Decatur Staleys: to Chicago in 1921 (renamed the Chicago Bears in 1922)
-Toledo Maroons: to Kenosha, WI in 1924 [1]
-Pottsville Maroons: to Boston as the Bulldogs in 1929
-Dayton Triangles: to Brooklyn as the Dodgers in 1930 (renamed Brooklyn Tigers in 1944)
-Portsmouth Spartans: to Detroit as the Lions in 1934
-Boston Redskins: to Washington, D.C. in 1937
-Cleveland Rams: to Los Angeles in 1946
-Chicago Cardinals: to St. Louis in 1960
-Los Angeles Chargers: to San Diego in 1961 while in the AFL
-Dallas Texans: to Kansas City, MO as the Kansas City Chiefs in 1963 while in the AFL
-Oakland Raiders: to Los Angeles in 1982
-Baltimore Colts: to Indianapolis in 1984
-St. Louis Cardinals: to Tempe, AZ in 1988
-Los Angeles Raiders: back to Oakland in 1995
-Los Angeles Rams: to St. Louis in 1995
-Houston Oilers: temporarily to Memphis, TN in 1997 as the Tennessee Oilers and permanently to Nashville in 1998 (renamed Tennessee Titans in 1999)

Quasi-moves: movement of more or less intact teams from one city to another
The NFL considers these separate franchises but there is significant continuity from one to the other

-Canton Bulldogs: mothballed for the 1924 season when the owner of the Cleveland Bulldogs bought it and took the players and nickname to Cleveland. Franchise resurrected in 1925
-Duluth Eskimos: to Orange, NJ as the Orange Tornadoes in 1929 (separate franchises but same players)
-Newark Tornadoes: The Newark franchise was forfeited to the league and ordered to be disposed of to the highest bidder after the 1930 season. The next franchise granted was the Boston Braves (now Washington Redskins franchise) in 1932. So, while it is possible that Newark franchise was sold to the Boston group in 1932, there is no documentation available. Neither Newark or Boston played in 1931.
-Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers corporate entities and players (but not franchises) swap cities after the 1940 season after complex ownership deal.[2]
-Boston Yanks franchise to New York City as the New York Bulldogs in 1949 (separate franchise but same owner and players)
-New York Yanks (formerly New York Bulldogs) folded after the 1951 season; players transferred to new Dallas Texans franchise for the 1952 season
-Dallas Texans: operated out of Hershey, PA for the last five games of the 1952 season, playing their last three games in Akron, OH. Franchise folded after season's end and players awarded to new Baltimore Colts franchise in 1953
-Cleveland Browns: to Baltimore as the Ravens in 1996. In 1995 Browns owner Art Modell announced plans to move the Cleveland Browns to Baltimore for the 1996 season. The NFL, the city of Cleveland and Modell reach an agreement whereby the Browns franchise and history would remain in Cleveland to be resurrected by 1999. Modell was given a new franchise for Baltimore, made up of players from the 1995 Cleveland Browns


Franchise mergers
-Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles to form the Phil-Pitt "Steagles", for the 1943 season only due to the lack of players during World War II. The team split games between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh
-Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Cardinals to form Card-Pitt, for the 1944 season only due to the lack of players during World War II. The team split home games between Pittsburgh and Chicago
-Brooklyn Tigers (the same Brooklyn team that moved from Dayton in 1930) and Boston Yanks, initially for the 1945 season only, as simply "The Yanks." They split home games between Brooklyn and Boston. The merger became permanent, as the Boston Yanks, after revocation of the Brooklyn franchise in 1946.

Teams moving between cities/boroughs within their metropolitan area
-Arizona Cardinals: from eastern Phoenix suburb Tempe to western suburb Glendale in 2006
-Buffalo Bills: to Orchard Park, NY in 1973
-Dallas Cowboys: to Irving, Texas in 1971 (a future move to Arlington, Texas is planned for 2009)
-Detroit Lions: to Pontiac, MI in 1975 and back to Detroit in 2002
-Los Angeles Rams: to Anaheim, CA in 1980
-Miami Dolphins: to unincorporated northern Dade County (now the city of Miami Gardens) in 1987
-Minnesota Vikings: from suburban Bloomington, MN to downtown Minneapolis in 1982
-Boston/New England Patriots: to Foxboro, MA in 1971
-New Orleans Saints: from Uptown New Orleans to the Central Business District in 1975
-New York Giants: from Manhattan to The Bronx in 1956, temporarily relocated to New Haven, CT for the second half of the 1973 and the entire 1974 season, then temporarily relocated to Queens for the 1975 season, then permanently to East Rutherford, NJ in 1976
-New York Jets: from Manhattan to Queens in 1964 and to East Rutherford, NJ in 1984
-Oakland Raiders: from San Francisco to Oakland in 1962
-Orange Tornadoes to nearby Newark, NJ in 1930, renamed the Newark Tornadoes
-Philadelphia Eagles: from North Philadelphia to West Philadelphia (University City) in 1958, and then on to South Philadelphia in 1971
-Pittsburgh Steelers: to the North Shore from Oakland (Pittsburgh) in 1970
-Washington Redskins: to Landover, MD in 1997

Temporary moves, in chronological order
The following are not actually relocations, but temporary moves because these teams' home stadiums were either under construction or being rebuilt

-Carolina Panthers: the Panthers began play in 1995 but spent their first season at Memorial Stadium in Clemson, South Carolina while their new stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina was still being built.
-Seattle Seahawks: Played 3 games in 1994 at Husky Stadium as the Kingdome was undergoing emergency repairs, and returned there for the entire 2000 and 2001 seasons before Seahawks Stadium (now Qwest Field) was completed.
-Chicago Bears: Spent the 2002 season at Memorial Stadium in Champaign, Illinois while Soldier Field was being renovated.
-New Orleans Saints: due to damage to the Superdome, their home field, by Hurricane Katrina, the Saints played three home games of the 2005 season in the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, where the team set up temporary operations, as well as four home games at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana (and officially one at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey). The Saints returned to New Orleans in 2006

Ultimate disposition of the 14 charter franchises
By the start of the 1920 APFA season, the nascent National Football League was comprised of 14 franchises. Of those teams, only two are still in operation as of 2006 (denoted in bold):

-Akron Pros: Changed name to Akron Indians in 1926. Permanently suspended operations in 1927.
-Buffalo All-Americans: Changed name to Buffalo Bisons in 1924, Buffalo Rangers in 1926, and changed back to Buffalo Bisons in 1927. Suspended operations in 1928. Resumed play in 1929, but folded following the season.
-Canton Bulldogs: Cleveland Bulldogs in 1923. Suspended operations in 1924. Resumed play in Canton in 1925. Folded following 1926 season.
-Chicago Cardinals: Merged with Pittsburgh Steelers for one year in 1944. Returned as an independent team in 1945. Moved to St Louis in 1960. Moved to Phoenix in 1988. Changed name to Arizona Cardinals in 1994.
-Chicago Tigers: Folded following 1920 season.
-Cleveland Tigers: Folded following 1921 season.
-Columbus Panhandles: Changed name to Columbus Tigers in 1923. Folded following 1926 season.
-Dayton Triangles: Franchise relocated and renamed Brooklyn Dodgers in 1930. Changed name to Brooklyn Tigers in 1944. Merged with Boston Yanks in 1945. Franchise canceled in 1945 by league; players assigned to Boston Yanks.
-Decatur Staleys: Moved to Chicago in 1921. Changed name to Chicago Bears in 1922.
-Detroit Heralds: Folded following 1920 season.
-Hammond Pros: Folded following 1926 season.

We could if the records and stats of the Baltimore Era had stayed in Baltimore....it's hard to hear references of Unitas playing for the Indianapolis Colts....he didn't, he played for the Baltimore Colts.


I'm going back to Pleba....they'll understand......

And, agreed, stop with the whining Baltimore, good lord...if I lived there, I'd move too. Though, I do enjoy the Wire, which takes place in Baltimore.

It may have been because of Baltimore's whining that the league did what they did with the Browns. But that special exception really wasn't fair to Houston. The Oilers are essentially a dead team, though reincarnated as the Titans. But the Ravens are still technically the Browns, the ones with the history. The new Browns are the new puppy, but not the same dog. (woof woof woof in the dogpound endzone) Even if an expansion team in Balt. would not have really been the Colts.

And speaking of moving teams and the Texans, the Baltimore Colts, way back when, were originally the Dallas Texans! My Dad lived in Baltimore in the early 50's and he knew the whole saga.
