If "fantasy football" for you
means a stadium where healthy foods are more abundant than foam fingers, check
out this year's ranking of the top five most vegetarian-friendly stadiums in
honorable mentions are the San Diego Chargers' Qualcomm Stadium, the Seattle Seahawks' CenturyLink Field, the San Francisco 49ers' Candlestick Park, and the Detroit Lions' Ford Field.
fans don't have to leave their health to a last-minute Hail Mary. They can
start and finish strong with foods that don't cause unnecessary roughness to their bodies or to animals and that taste so good that
fans won't care if they get fined for excessive celebration.

Here it is: PETA's third annual list of top vegetarian-friendly NFL stadiums. Football and food fans will rush to try the tasty eats available at these concession stands.
1. Lincoln Financial Field (Philadelphia Eagles)Flying high at number one is the Eagles' Lincoln Financial Field, where protein-packed mock-steak sandwiches, faux-chicken sandwiches, veggie dogs, and veggie burgers are coming off the grill faster than DeSean Jackson in the open field.2. Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum (Oakland Raiders)The only things scarier than a masked Raiders fan are the artery-clogging saturated fat and cholesterol lurking in meat. Fans of the Silver and Black who want to be around for seasons to come should choose the stadium's delicious vegetarian options, such as veggie burritos, veggie burgers, and (in premium seating areas) meat-free fajitas.3. Lambeau Field (Green Bay Packers)At Lambeau Field, Packers fans are picking up hearty, meat-free fare—including veggie bratwurst, veggie burgers, and baked potatoes—quicker than Charles Woodson picks off errant passes.4. Georgia Dome (Atlanta FalconsDirty Bird fans can get a clean bill of health if they stick to the stadium's heart-healthy vegetarian options, such as veggie burgers and veggie dogs. Falcons fans who like sweets and are sweet to animals can also enjoy vegan chocolate-chip cupcakes. 5. (Tie) Arrowhead Stadium (Kansas City Chiefs)Why has Arrowhead long been known as the loudest stadium in football? The crowd has been clamoring for more vegetarian options! Well, they got 'em. PETA recommends the lentil or veggie burgers instead of artery-clogging barbecue as well as the baked potatoes and (in premium areas) pasta with marinara sauce.5. (Tie) Ford Field (Detroit Lions)With Ndamukong Suh helping turn the franchise around, the Mu Shu Tofu Wrap at Ford Field is soon to be the Mu Suh Tofu Wrap. Lions fans can also sink their teeth into mouth-watering veggie burgers, fruit cups, and (in premium areas) grilled vegetable pasta salad with grilled zucchini, red onion, and red peppers.Congrats to all the winners. And now the big question: Who's hungry?

Ever since notorious dog abuser Michael Vick got out of jail and was signed by the apparently desperate Philadelphia Eagles, there has been a lot of discussion in the press and at your local humane society and sports bar about the ethics of his return to the NFL—and all the other issues that go along with it.
Now, the Washington Post (along with media outlets everywhere) is reporting that Nike might again be teaming up with Vick for product endorsements.
Today in the Post's special online NFL feature, "The League," PETA's own Dan Shannon cuts through the noise with a guest post on the subject. Dan puts it bluntly when he writes, "If Nike and other companies know what's best for the bottom line, they won't touch Michael Vick with a 10-foot pole."

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
