    The Raiders’ stadium will be run by AEG even though an ex-W. Va attorney claims that it does not want the Davis family running the team if moved to L.A.

    AEG, let the Raiders stay who they are because you’ve already created enough trouble with the Los Angeles stadium situation by asking to buy a piece of a franchise for a damn discount!!!

    I knew it!!!!

    Peter King is that stupid to the point where he misspoke about Andrew Luck’s major!!!

    I remember when he spoke to Jeff Darlington on NFL.com about how he’s taking courses and majors that we have never heard of when Arch Design has very little to do with Arch Engineering!!!

    Arch Engineering is a lot like civil engineering, but when Andrew Luck talked about how he had studio courses I knew that he was talking for architects everywhere!!!

    People, have curiosity and know the details and background of as many majors as possible!!! It’s obvious Peter didn’t!!!

    Plus, as much as I respect Andrew Luck for his past academic endeavors I need to pay more respect to JJ Watt because he was a civil engineer major at Wisconsin (the damn good engineering program) and delivered pizzas to pay his tuition for one year!!!
