Published September 11, 2008
Over the past 24 hours, singer Jessica Simpson's comments on "GMA" regarding Monday night's Eagles-Cowboys game stirred conversation among bloggers, with many believing that Tony Romo's girlfriend would be further vilified by Cowboys fans should they lose. The Angels winning the AL West and clinching a playoff spot was a popular topic among bloggers, with many taking note of their joyous post-game celebration. Concerns about Titans QB Vince Young's mental state continued to be a popular topic. Bloggers were also concerned by news that the Giants and Jets are in stadium naming-rights negotiations with Germany-based Allianz. Rounding out the top five was "Inside the NFL" analyst Warren Sapp referring to Univ. of Florida football coach Urban Meyer as a "classless dirtbag" for kicking a field goal in the final seconds of UF's 26-3 win over the Univ. of Miami, Sapp's alma mater, and stating that the Raiders, his former team are "going to suck."
