Patriots advance to their 4th Superbowl in 7 years.

Well Hal I didn't Tivo the game but from what I saw it wasn't clear that he rolled well into the 1st down but since they didn't challenge you are probably right. I've seen too many spot replays go against the seahawks to say anything will definitely stand up. I believe you have to challenge, especially that late in the game, because you are screwed for sure if you just play on.

Good game but I don't understand why Norv doesn't challenge the spot on Faulk's catch. Pretty much game over right there. Very surprised/disappointed in LT's sideline behavior.

Fantasy Football (NFL) Helpline

I'd think Harrington has the best chance of the 3 for a break out game. His last two games 600 pyds, 4 tds, 0 ints, 75% compl vs. panthers & texans. I'm trying to convince myself not to use him instead of Hasselbeck this week. Garrard is a close second & I'd say a big hell no on Pennington.

Patriots Caught Taping Jets Defensive Signals, May Lose Draft Picks

Compared to the Broncos salary cap violations from 1996-98? Belichick is way too smart to do this without a reason. It was too blatant. Maybe it's worth a couple of third round picks to instill further paranoia into opponents. It must be near impossible to keep up with all the packages in place as is & now D's have a little extra to worry about. You gotta think someone is trying to steal the audio communications from coach to QB as well. Whatever it takes to win right. These owners didn't make all there money playing by the rules. My conspiracy/trading places mindset still believes that Lowe's had something to do with the Vick case proceeding so rapidly.

Good thing the thing doesn't go around his head. I'd say Jack's head grew just as much. I agree with Cuban. "Those of us who grew up pre cable, satellite and Internet don't know nearly as much about our sports icons from the early '80s and before as we think we do."

Ricky Williams tests positive for marijuana again

How do you fail a marijuana test in these times? There are products, given 4 hours notice, that will let you pass ANY herb test. Parole, job, whatever. Now I don't know about other drugs but how can he or his agent let this happen. Travel the world & you'll see everyone does drugs in some form. In the US folks prefer their tidy prescriptions.

Just last year? There's a longer history than just last year. 2003 - 1st 2004 - 1st 2005 - (not 1st) 2006 - 1st You can't stop jg. You can only hope to contain her. Comment icon posted by YukonGold at 7:39 PM CST on February 16 Oh she can be stopped. I was 1st in 05, 2nd last year, didn't play in 04(africa) & was in 1st in late 03 until jg cried to the league & orchestrated an email campaign over a trade & I quit that league instead of deal w/ that BS. I can't make the draft this yr(back to africa) but we'll see.

Grimsley Called Clemens, Tejada and Pettitte Steroid Abusers

that steroid use (excuse me: Performance Enhancing drug use) There's a considerable difference between steroids & performance enhancers(including hgh) which is why I brought up the point. Grimsley said steroids were used by the Baltimore players & performance enhancers were used by Clemens. rcade's post is misleading.
