AmmoDogs owner Michael Rogers was promoted to Staff Sergeant today in Afghanistan. The OIL sends their congratulations and best wishes. Stay safe and we'll see you at the 2015 draft, Rogers.
The first of many images depicting OIL franchise jerseys on real players came in today. This one depicts Peyton Manning playing for the 2012 OIL Bowl champion Arrogant Americans. The images were created by a user at Fiverr.com. The uniforms are based on the New England Patriots throwback unis.
Tampa Bay and Jacksonville kick off their respective preseasons with a game Friday night in Jacksonville. While there has been plenty of discussion of how rookies Mike Evans and Blake Bortles will do, or what effect new additions Lovie Smith and a pair of former Seahawks will have on their respective teams, there is not enough discussion of just how ugly of a game this is going to be.
Seriously, look at these uniforms. They're horrible. But which is worse? Vote below.
The okiraqi.org blog and the OklahomIraqis League (the OIL) are proud to partner with MyFantasyCommish.com (MFC) this season. Commissioner Cliburn spoke with MFC co-founder Chris Sternal about the new venture. That interview is after the jump. But, first, check out their advertising video on YouTube:
