Fair use rationale for File:Nfl on tnt logo.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

File:Nfl on tnt logo.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 16:36, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Notable Moments[edit]

I'm not at all familiar with the NFL, but it seems to me that this section is about one incident in a football game, rather than this TV program. It also doesn't seem right that the entire reference section is just about this blooper, especially considering how poorly the references have been linked.

I'd like to just delete the whole section, and its references. Are there objections to that? Burnside65 19:16, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

The Players' [Abortive] All-Star Season[edit]

"During this time, the NFLPA promoted two 'all-star games.'"

Those players' union all-star games are a most obscure footnote in NFL history. There was supposed to be a team representing each of the NFL's (six) divisions, but that must have broken down swiftly, as only four teams were assembled, with the Central Division players assigned as needed. There was bold talk of staging an entire season in this fashion (the games were announced as "The Players' All-Star Season"), but after the first week talk shifted to matching up the two winners, as if it were a short elimination tournament. They never even got that far. As I recall, Washington running back John Riggins took a flight to the other coast so that he could play in both games, so intense was his support for the union. The games were very lame affairs, with the players trying to avoid any injuries above all. In contrast to the statement in the article, I recall the teams having a single uniform as opposed to home and road. The first game was red versus blue and the second yellow versus black.

Since this material was removed around Oct 2010, these games are further lost to history. While I would agree that they really don't belong here, someone might try to find a place for the deleted material. WHPratt (talk) 17:19, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
