The 5 Most Questionable Calls in NFL History

What Are the Most Expensive Hotels in the World? — Dollars and Sense [PHOTOS]

Would you consider spending an extra couple hundred dollars a night to avoid staying at a dingy hotel full of circus pimps and other sleazy variations of the dark side trading company?
