Denver Broncos News: Horse Tracks - 8/28/13

New, comments

I don't really care for the ratbirds or some of their fans. What other fanbase wins a Super Bowl then trolls the Internets with their junk hanging all out? Jets fans probably, Raider fans most certainly. Glad those franchises rarely get to the pinnacle of the sport, otherwise I'd have to rethink my passion for the game. The NFL rubbing our faces in it only adds insult to injury. Jerks.
