    It runs from Cincinnait, to Cleavlend, to Detroit and back again. Those who enter will be sucked into an abyss of never ending misery and defeat. Enter if you dare!!

    From wiki and double checking with google maps using decimal coordinates.

    Ford Field (Lions): 42.3401556, -83.0458083
    Cleveland Browns Stadium (Browns): 41.5060222, -81.6995639
    Paul Brown Stadium (Bengals): 39.0954417, -84.5160389

    Taking the center of this triangle to be the geometric centroid, we find the coordinates of this point to be

    40.9805398 -83.0871370

    Going to Google Maps and entering these numbers into the search bar (separated by a space) takes us to this location of football sucking centrocity. Southeast of Melmore, OH on route 100, in Crawford County just north of Park Road, on a pleasant rural property. What unspeakable evil took place here to plunge this pigskin region into such grid-iron incompetence? Perhaps a field trip is in order.

    It's predicted to be in the 40's on Sunday, and if I'm bored enough I suppose I might give it a go. It's not like I have anything else to do. Should I take some football item with me and throw it out of the car as ballast to escape? Seeing as the force of football-related suckage should allow an equal yet opposite force of escape velocitude. Or something.

    There has been a tremendous and ominous and violent reversal in the suckage of the triangle this Sunday. It appears that the Bengals have managed to win game #2 this year. Of course critical levels will not be reached unless one of the three teams is on the verge of a winning season, so scientists are saying that there is no reason to fear the upheaval of this seemingly natural phenomenon. At least, not this year. What would happen if the suckage is reversed is a matter of debate among many scientific circles.

    Does this "Triangle" apply to college football as well?

    No just the NFL, like the thread said.

    Yes...ESPN says Chad Pennington is a posible contender for the MVP Award. How do you feel about this Smook?

    Pennington has done well, but I must defer to one of the Mannings for MVP.. the game on Thursday night cannot go unnoticed for Peyton..

    Eli belongs on that team in NY as well..

    Now who's detracting from the original spirit of the thread? Ohio needs a champion, but it's not coming from the NFL or college football.
