I have to agree that the Saints get more than their share of hometown calls.

It's part of the reason they get more HFA cred from the gambling market.

Most people in the metro area still identify with Detroit, and root for Detroit sports teams, despite not living in the exact city.
for real guys,

there is a difference between

It's about 10 miles and one group gets to point the guns at the other

It's interesting, though. When I'm traveling, people ask me where I'm from and I'll sometimes say Chicago. However, if someone from Chicagoland is around, they would rail on me for that answer. Once one is further out than the El trains go, they kind of lose their Chicago card.

Right now, I'm 28.2 miles from the Loop (center of Chicago). Suburbs continue another 12-15 miles West of me without let up. Yet, if I said I was from Chicago and there is someone that grew up in Roscoe Village or some other city neighborhood at the same poker table, cantina, wherever thousands of miles away, there is a greater than 50/50 chance that person calls me out.

As a result, I usually just say I'm from Illinois, which is more truthful anyway considering my family settled in the USA about 60 miles West of Chicago before Chicago was even thought of as the big town in the area. The city grew to meet us :shrug:

complaining about legit missed calls is one thing. outrage over calls where they don't show a replay of the offense and then coming to the conclusion that "no replay = terrible call" is just dumb.

and then there are the special types of dumb posts where they show the replay and it couldn't be a more obvious offense and people like the tunermator (or whatever his name is) claim that it didn't happen (i.e. Fairley hands to the face).

anyway, i'm ranting and none of this amounts to a hill of beans.

This sounds like an awful idea to me, and almost certainly not the biggest net.

Where are you going to stay? Basically every hotel within 50 miles of the stadium is already booked. Even if you somehow found a room they're going to gouge the crap out of you.

Mere parking spaces are going for hundreds of dollars. If you actually set foot in Indy, the related expenses will probably destroy whatever extra profit you might get out of selling them closer to the stadium.

mt2r is right. I always say I'm from Chicago, but frequently have to backpedal to "the Chicagoland area" or "south suburbs" due to someone from the city proper asking questions.

I never really had a problem with people saying where they were from and saying the city as when I was in SC most people have no idea how NJ works so I just said that I was 30 minutes west of NYC.

But people from the Philadelphia area were the absolute worst offenders of this. Even some of my best friends. I was convinced they were from Philly proper by the way they talked. Go visit them to find out that they live in Manayunk, Media, Aston, Conshohocken, Bryn Mawr, or my personal favorite when a group of us piled into our college buddies car to "go to Philly" for the weekend and he lived in West Chester, at least a 50 minute ride from the city.

Also I don't ever think games in the NFL are actually rigged, I just say rigged when I mean bad call. Would people really prefer "I disagree with that call?"

Riverman....i don't think you are actually claiming the game is rigged. And I have no problem with you at all. It's just when people jump on the rigged bandwagon and it takes over a thread.

I say Naperville anymore. I'm just outside of it, but it's becoming a pretty recognizable name and it mostly represents what the western burbs are.
