ND vs. LSU

Actually, no, it isn't, because the not-liking in this case had nothing to do with the topic. It had to do with the post not adhering to the guidelines. And if you don't like the guidelines of the site (for any "you" out there), then I'd say you need to move on. If the rules of this site bother you so much that being asked to adhere to them makes you wail and gnash your teeth, there are lots of other sports sites out there where you'll probably be a lot happier. At a minimum, if you'd rather complain about the guidelines than follow them, you need to take it to the Locker Room. LOL, this is a free forum open to all yet some "people" have to claim it as their own. And I have to make my point again, its not about the rules. Its all about marketing and creating ways to get "people" to visit Yahoo! for money. If you want to have your serious little club where all follow the rules, then create your own site and charge a fee. Somehow I think you would enjoy that while being able to tell others how they should act. There are more serious matters in this world other than getting your shorts in a bunch over such trivial matters. Did Santa bring you a gift card in order to get a life? I hope so!

ND vs. LSU

Oh, read the guidelines already for heaven's sake, people. Sheesh. If you post a FPP to SportsFilter, you post a quality link (not Yahoo), and you keep your opinions out of the FPP. You're welcome to expand on them in the comments, but not the FPP. If you don't get why that's a good idea, that's fine -- the internet is full of sports forums that don't have these standards. But SportsFilter does have them, and if you want to raise a discussion about their validity, do it in the Locker Room. There will always be "people" in life who are freaked out if you don't follow the rules to a T. Its nice to see so much time can be dedicated to such serious matters. Here is a better idea. If you don't like the topic or the post, move on. That is so simple. The true reason for this forum is to get people to use Yahoo! and generate numbers to get maximum advertising revenue. Lets not be so nit picky with the rules "people".

'Scuse me while I whip this out...

And really, how severe was his crime? With all do respect to people who have lost loved ones in drunk driving accidents, they weren't lost to Dontrelle. Did his pissing on the street paralyze anyone for life? It's time to look at DUI on a case by case basis. Get out the torches and rope when someone is actually hurt. Wow! I am guessing the folks at MADD won't be beating down your door to become their next spokesperson. The fact that DW didn't hurt anyone doesn't lessen the severity of the crime. That would be like saying I took my gun out and made several attempts to shoot you and missed. And because I missed, whats the real harm? To me, cars in the parking lots at bars whos owners are intoxicated are nothing more that bullets looking for a target. Sooner or later, the bullet will connect and you hope your not the target. DW made a very dumb mistake and showed poor judgement; perhaps because he thought his stature in Miami would make him above the law. He is very lucky he didn't actually hurt someone. But, imho, his penalty should be as severe as if he did hit someone. Ok, in keeping with the tone of all of the posts on this thread, let me have it now!

Nuggets-Knicks brawl ends with 10 players ejected

Some of the above comments are making references of the NBA to the NHL. Atleast in the NHL they have a more controlled fight. The fight doesn't last very long and the game moves on. Maybe its time for David Stearns to put glass around the court and let these guys duke it out and keep the fans safe. As for Marshmelo Anthony, what a wuss! Tosses and connects on a haymaker then runs away like he just clocked his big brother and then reality set in. He should be fined for being a pansy. As for the actual foul that started the melee, it didn't look all that bad in slow motion. Major overreaction in my opinion.

Ya, anyone with some cash can get in line behind the BCS, ABC, the NFL (free farm system) and anyone else who wants to exploit the college athelete. By providing a free education (tuition is covered by non athelete students i would imagine)and in return the school gets millions. BRILLIANT! I know this is somewhat off topic but all this bowl bs is about MONEY! Isn't it about time the players get their fair share of the pie?

My guess is the BCS, ABC and the Rose Bowl didn't want Wisconsin to play against USC. Michigan got screwed in many respects but if they beat Ohio State the first time; this point is moot. By the way, how can a team fall in the polls by not playing? And all of us who think the BCS is a joke will tune in and watch the games thereby reinforcing to ABC and BCS their system works. Don't watch the games people! lol

Could Reggie be losing the heisman?

On another note, USC informed the parents of the rules. They signed a form acknowledging that they were informed. If USC is penalized for this, then universities are going to be asked to find out where all the parents of all the athletes live and work and whether they deserve the salary they make and can afford the houses they live in. It seems highly invasive. I don't see how the parents have any legal authority in this matter. College atheletes over the age of 18 are legal consenting adults. The actions of the parent should have no consequence on the athelete. It seems absurd to me that Reggie's parents actions can affect him in this situation.

Could Reggie be losing the heisman?

Can't help but comment on the temptation of money in college football. Agents are so eager to sign these prospects and they seem willing to ignore the NCAA rules. I'm sure its very hard for a poor player to ignore the money being put in front of them. If only the players were compensated for their skills other than tuition, room, and board. Then they might not have to be tempted by the unscrupulous agent. Tuition, room and board is hardly a fair exchange for the revenue they help generate, in my humble opinion. Its a very harsh lesson to be stripped of the trophy and to forfeit all the games but one that has to be implemented. I am not well versed on the rules agents must obey. Are they to be punished as well?

Is the NFL Preseason too long?

How many of you guys actually watch an entire pre-season game? I certainly don't. But I gather there are enough TV ratings to justify the coverage and the games. Its all about money. From a dollars standpoint, there is a 20 game season plus the playoffs. Season ticket holders are required to buy tickets for the pre-season. And in most cases, those pre-season tickets are given away to those who can't see tickets for regular season games. As long as the cash keeps flowing, nothing will change. But its sad that you have to pay full price for half of a product for 4 games. But if I am an owner, I am smiling at the demand of the market place.

At 30, Tiger becomes youngest to 50 PGA wins

Bit harsh to lump Player in with those others, panteeze. Maybe. I don't disagree with you that Player was physically fit. But he certainly wasn't built like Tiger (almost the size of an outside linebacker). I also agree that Tiger's swing is physically taxing on his body and I hope he can avoid future injuries by being careful. I don't think Tiger spends that much time on his endorsements. If you think about it, Tiger plays no more than 20 tournaments a year. That leaves him 32 weeks of time each year to devote to free time, endorsements, basically whatever he wants. I also don't think his travel, unlike other PGA members, is a drain on his energy. Having your own jet and yacht at your disposal certainly has to have its benefits. Time will tell though if I am wrong. Most of all, I agree with you that this is really fun to be a witness to this era in golf. I live 2 miles from Medinah and will be there every day to witness the fun firsthand. I am looking forward to revisiting the tree on number 16 where Sergio jammed his club in the base and hit an incredible shot followed by his famous hop.

At 30, Tiger becomes youngest to 50 PGA wins

We have at minimum five more years of Tiger on his current pace, and probably more like ten. If you really think he's over the hill and has lost the ability to win, I can only assume you're (a) forgetting about the four tournaments he's won this year already (including the British Open) and/or (b) Tonya Harding, and you've got a secret you're not telling us. I agree and I think Tiger is just reaching his stride. One factor worth mentioning is Tiger's physical conditioning. He cleary has an advantage over Jack, Arnie, Gary, Lee, etc.. as do most others on the PGA Tour today. You hear the phrase "Todays 40 is yesterdays 30" tossed around quite alot these days. Tiger might have another 15 strong years left in him before he begins to slow down.

At 30, Tiger becomes youngest to 50 PGA wins

Ho-hum,Tiger wins another birdiefest on an overmatched course.Yet,the 50 win accomplishment is impressive,and Tiger is a great player. But I'll predict right now that the PGA at Medinah won't be No. 51. I don't really want to stir up the "Tiger can't win on truly tough courses" thing again,but two weeks from now,I'll be saying I told you so. The idea that Tiger can't win on tough courses and wins on an overmatched course is somewhat trivial. Tiger has already proven he can win on a tough course as well as the birdiefest courses. What is impressive to me is that he has shown he can beat the competition on several different venues requiring a dominating set of skills. It doesn't matter to me the difficulty level of the course, you still have to beat all of your opponents to win. It is kind of like making a par 5 into a par 4. Does it really make that much difference in the outcome? In the end, the player with the least amount of strokes wins. Medinah will be a tough test for all of the field, not just Tiger. I will be very suprised if Tiger does not post a Top Ten finish. One argument that can't be disputed is Tiger is the BEST PLAYER of his generation. I think trying to compare him to the greats of the past is like apples and oranges. The game has changed so much since the Jones, Palmer and Nicklaus eras. But it certainly is fun to debate the merits of each players accomplishments.

I'm saying the only way a post can be trivial is if it's not given any attention. It's obviously not true in this case. Come down off your horse frazer. One of the most difficult things to do here is communicate your intent. I admit I blew this one by not clarifying my message. I do not think people who post here are trivial. I think some of the posts are not worth so much attention though. But like so many posts on this site, the original message gets lost and people tend to pick apart your comments as if they are the ultimate authority on the subject. That to me is humorous.

Did Roger Clemens deserve a trade back to the Red Sox?

If you have a problem with FPP's about "ridicuously over paid atheletes" (sic x3), then I advise you to stick to the college sports FPPs. You managed to hit on one of the other recurring themes that drives me nuts, people complaining about how much pro athletes get paid. Welcome to a capitalist free market, panteeze. If you hate it so much, I hear President Chavez is creating a socialist utopia in Venezuela and he likes it when Americans come and visit. It's one thing to voice an opinion, another to join in a conversation saying "Who cares?" Obviously, the other people who are posting care. If you don't, move on. It just bothers me when pro athletes are accused of being selfish and overpaid, or their work ethic questioned, for having a skill and making the most of it in the marketplace. It's total hypocrisy. Wow, I am taking a beating here. Thanks Weedy for some support. What pro atheletes make is ridiculous! I am not complaining about that at all. I am stating my opinion that I do not care what Roger does or does not deserve. More power to him for what he has done. Just curious Venicemenace, how do you excatly define a capitalist free market? Is it a market where everyone is able to compete on a level playing field? Or is it a market where lawmakers take donations to become elected and then pass legislation favoring those who helped them thus creating an unfair market? Why don't you run down to your local government and ask for some tax support to build a new stadium and start your own baseball league. I'm sure you will be welcomed with open arms. I chose long ago to forgoe major sporting events in person. Tickets are way out of line and yes, I think they are overpaid including Roger. Why are they overpaid? Because people are willing to fork over hard earned dough to either watch someone else live out their fantasy or just escape from their own miserable lives. Man there are many big egos on this post. Get a life people, its only an opinion, not life or death.

Drive for Show; Putt for Dough

the whole tournament disappointed me!. i cannot believe how easy the course played for a major event. There will always be criticism that a major course was either too easy or too hard (Bethpage). To me, wheather the course is set up easy or difficult, the best golfer for the week will have outplayed the others. Tiger clearly outplayed everyone else. His course management dominated all the competition. He is not "Phil the Thrill", he does was he has to do to win. How do you think Tiger would have played the 18th at Wingfoot if he were in Phil's position? My guess would be, 2 iron, 2 iron, three putt for bogey and win. In my humble opinion, he is the best golfer in the world today for the last 10 years counting.

Playoffs for the PGA?

The reason for that (I think) is that everyone good enough to be in contention in a major is already financially comfortable, if not a multi-millionaire. Very few of them feel like they have something to prove anymore. I am of the opinion that you would have a full field for all of the majors if the only prize was the trophy. I don't think the cash prize matters to many; they simply want to win the dang thing and be recognized by their peers.

Geoff Ogilvy Wins 106th U.S. Open!

Hindsight is 20/20 but Phil could have reached the green safetly with 3 8 irons I would imagine. Great theatre would have been to easedrop on the conversation Phil had with his wife Amy after he mucked the tournament. Amy loves her face time on the 18th green and the money that comes with winning. She might have been more disappointed than Phil. Anyone catch the comment Phil made in an interview when asked about Tiger not making the cut? The reply was "First of all, I am not going to lose any sleep over it." I'm guessing Tiger can same the same about Muckelson's blunder on the 18th. One final thought...Years from now, we mostly remember who won the tourney, not how they won. However, Phil will now always be remembered for how he lost the US Open.

Rember people, she is only 16! 10 years from now, Wie will have atleast 10 wins in the majors and we will all be immune to her media circus by then. Her accomplishments are a big story but I think she is being exploited by the media, Nike and tv networks. And I think she is demonstrating remarkable maturity for a 16 year old girl. I am very suprised that no mention was made in any of the previous posts about Pat Hurst. The tournament was hers to win and she failed.

There are many clubs that exclude entire groups of people. They just don't have the media exposure of augusta national.

I don't see any national womens organizations complaining about that. Also, I'm sure it costs an average joe a life savings to join Augusta, if allowed. Why doesn't anyone complain about that Augusta discriminates based on income also? Augusta is a private club. They do not owe anyone anything. I'm sure they don't hate women, hate poor people, hate the handicapped, hate single parents, etc......... They just have the right to set their own membership criteria. Why do so many people spend so much energy bashing Augusta, Hootie and their membership criteria? The only reason I can think of is that Augusta National has name recognition and opposing parties try to capitalize on their reputation for cheap publicity. Its frickin about time someone stand up (Hootie) and says "Tough shit if you don't like it, I am not here to please you!"

The cheerleading teams represent schools that choose to belong to the NCAA, which chooses to follow AACCA safety rules.

The bottom line here is that if you like Barry Bonds, you will spin your arguments in favor of him and if you don't like him, well................. Personally, I don't like the guy. I find him to be aloof, arrogant and indignant. But the steroids did not make him a great baseball player, he had the skills before the roids. The roids allowed him to get some extra yardage on his hits. Baseball should allow steroids and have a roid home run distance of 800 ft. They should have a roid hall of fame too. And there should be a roid Olympics. Why do so many people care so much about a record anyway? Remember the scene from the Ten Commandments at the end of the movie. The jews turned on Moses and made a gold statue out of ignorance. The gold statue in modern day represents sports records, trophies, academy awards, etc. Its so sad. By the way, can anyone on this forum come out and say they have never cheated on anything in their life? By anything, I mean playing games as a kid, sports, work, etc......

Where have all the Americans gone? If it were you you sniveling pukes you would cry and then you'd seek the words that make this nation unique. "We are innocent until proven guilty." There is only hearsay which is inadmissable in our courts. The last I checked k-i-smet, this forum is not part of our judicial system. This is merely a court of public opinion. And dare I say............hearsay appears to count. One more thing......Who ya crappin?

Two Vikings claim discrimination.

i hate to say it, but white people never see racism in ANYTHING. i hate to say it, but black people always see racisim in EVERYTHING. If your thinking my repsonse is as ridiculous as the italicized quote, your right. Just a few quotes from Andy Rooney on 60 minutes a few weeks ago: "I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of anything except numbers. The only things I can think of that are truly discriminatory are things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America. Try to have things like the United Caucasian College Fund, Cloud Magazine, White Entertainment Television, or Miss White America; and see what happens.. Jesse Jackson will be knocking down your door." "When 70% of the people who get arrested are black, in cities where 70% of the population is black, that is not racial profiling, it is the Law of Probability." "I am sick of "Political Correctness." I know a lot of black people, and not a single one of them was born in Africa; so how can they be "African-Americans"? Besides, Africa is a continent. I don't go around saying I am a European-American because my great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather was from Europe. I am proud to be from America and nowhere else. And if you don't like my point of view, tough."

KG gets ejected for tossed ball

I just hope this doesn't turn into another Davis incident like earlier this year (which he should not have been suspended at all. Punished for defending your wife of about 4 years? Next they will get punished for feeding their children, but nothing will happen if another girl gets raped....) Are you referring to Davis' wife, the wife who tossed a cup of hot coffee in a woman's face in a parking lot dispute? A wife who at the time of the coffee incident was illegally driving in the state of Illinois. A wife who I am sure did nothing that night at the United Center to provoke an incident? Anyway, KG is a good guy and I am sure there was no malice in his actions. I smell an academy award by the fan who was hit by the wayward ball. But, being as that may be, he should not have thrown the ball out of frustration. If I get frustrated over a parking lot snafu and toss a hot cup of coffee in someone's face, should I be held accountable for my actions? I think so.

Polar bear interrupts hockey game: Mom takes matters into her own hands;

I guess the size of the bear compared to the size of the mom make them polar opposites. Where was the ref? The fight should have been stopped when she hit the ground. All the testosterone in the world given to one man can't compete with a woman protecting her child, amazing story.
