NAMBLA has been lobbying ahlwie for an expansion team into the now GLB+TT+SQQI league with a small group of insider sympathizers who are afraid of public misperception.I understand how some think the TT guys deserve a franchise, but it's a mistake. They'll only split the already small B market (think of when both the Raiders and Rams were in LA which now has no team).How those SQQI bastards jumped the queue must really piss off long-time NAMBLA boosters. I guess advertisers think new age bat-shit insane sells more beer than class A felons.BTW, the first rule of acronyms is that they should simplify the concept they are trying to summarize. I suggest extending a franchise to the Asexual crowd who, although bringing more mainstream apathetic than fringe anger, could be the largest demographic. Then you could rename the center QQ and go with the more sensible acronym: I "QQ" GAL BuTTSWhere "QQ" is the variable: L: love G: hate B: love and hate T: used to love/hate guy butts, but now love/hate Queer: 'm hip and + L/G Quest: 'm confused about guy and 2S: 'm really confused about guy and I: love unicorn, guy and NAMBLA isn't going to work into any acronym. I see why they were left out now.- JAN
