Steelers Take Down Colts

I personally believe that the game was well played by the Steelers, and the Colts offense began showing up late game. There was some poor officiating, yes, but when it's all said and done, the best team won. Good job, Steelers!

Air Force Football Team sucks because they have no black kids

The sad thing is, this "old news" keeps coming back up because peopleneed to change their thought processes when it comes to race. As a Black man, I feel that the coaches comments were just plain ignorant, and shouldn't be blown too far out of proportion.

How bad are the Raptors?

Weedy makes a great point...if there's fan support (and the numbers definitely indicate it), the front office needs to step up and spend that money on something other than their Learjets or their third wives' collagen injections.

Coach resigns after high school bans pregame prayer

If the Pledge of Allegiance is allowed, which for all intents and purposes is a vow to God, hence, a prayer, then why can't a coach pray for his players? Perhaps he was praying that his players emphasize sportsmanship, not victory. And if you believe for a moment that there is a separation of church and state...check out the last couple of elections, and look at the Christian lobbyist groups. I'm not arguing for or against prayer, but to say that you're immediately against ANYTHING without looking at all sides of the issue first is simply ignorant.

Playoffs don't need Berman's embellishments

Berman's ego is much larger than his rotund frame. In fact, if it gets any larger, there will be a rupture in the space time continuum which will result in 25 WS championships for Boston, a Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl dynasty...and maybe then Berman will actually shut up.

Being good or being hot?

Good defense, strong pitching, decent offense....and momentum. These are all big factors in deciding who wins and who loses.

Boxer Dies From Injuries Sustained in Bout

This type of things has happened before, and unfortunately, it will happen again. Boxing IS violent, that's a fact. Using lighter gloves may help a little, ut I don't think it will stop these tragic incidents from occuring. This seems to be a situation where you can't really pass the buck here. The fighter that passed on had the choice of pulling out, but he didn't, and he went into the ring with a clear mind and heart. Perhaps as a society we need to take a closer look at what entertains us. Remember, Rome was brilliant and advanced as well...but they had the gladiator pits.

What'd Jew say?

As a former Catholic, I find this whole thing kind of silly. There is no TRUE Catholic doctrine due to the fact that catholic doctrine is decided upon by cardinals and popes...NOT GOD. And as for the Jews being doomed line...that's even sillier.

Joe Bauman, whose 72 home runs in one season stood until eclipsed by Barry "Big Head" Bonds

Perhaps we could tell Barry how we really feel about him by simply ignoring him?

This seems to be a problem with ring side care in Las Vegas maybe?

Something needs to be done about how these dotors assess the fighters. Yes, there is great personal risk when you box...but if you have doctors at ringside, their first priority should be to make sure that the fighter is TRULY capable of continuing before sending him or her out there to potentially get killed.

Skip Bayless denounces Stoops's punishment of Peterson

After reading the article online today, I realize why I'm in college. I'm not at a Div I school, but I am a student athlete. And as such, I'm proud to be able to even go to I get to do what I love, which is wrestle, to boot? Oh, Hell yeah. I'm very grateful for the opportunities I've recieved to get here. (By the way, I got into my school on an academic sholarship, although I couldn't have went due to wrestling) This Peterson thing is just shameful to me. I get to use the facilities that my college has to offer, AND I get to wrestle...BONUS!!

Another KC Chief behind bars

Domestic violence is wrong on any level. Sexual assault is wrong on any level. It shouldn't matter if you're an athlete, or a truck driver. But the fact is, it does. It's time that all people, regardless of background accept responsibility for their actions. And as for it not being a black and white world...try being Black in America for a few days, and see if that's the case.

Another KC Chief behind bars

It seems to me that we as a society are expecting way too much from these athletes. Let's be real...most of these guys come from nothing, then they have everything they can possibly imagine due to some natural abvility. While I'm not excusing their actions, some of you are going overboard talking about the "proliferation" of crooks in sports. These people are a section of our society, and as such, they reflect what goes on in it. And I could think of at least three people in my own life who have been great role models. My parents, for one, and the third person? The teacher(s) who took a chance on a street kid with no obvious prospects.

Saints May Be Gone for Good

Talk about insult to injury...haven't the people of N.O. been through enouygh as it is? It's going to take at least a year to START the rebulding of the city, and now they are considering a move? Ridiculous. I've spent a lot of time in N.O, because I have family's a decent sports town. Rooting for the Saints might be one of the few things that keeps the people sane. And to say that N.O is a horrible spot for a team is like saying that Jason Elam got the field goal record because he was at home. (which he kinda did.)

Has Katrina ended the Saints season before it started?

I say that we focus more on the current residents, or in this case, newly homeless, rather than some NFL players with fairly decent money. Yes, this will hurt team revenue...but these guys have the financial means to bounce back. Think about the guys and gals in Magnolia projects, and the other poor sections of town.

Is That an Intrusive Post-9/11 Security Measure or Are You Just Happy to See Me?

Quite frankly, I think the whole idea is ridiculous. I mean, 90 percent of the the profottball towns wouldn't be targeted by the Census board, if they could help it...much less terrorists. I'm a New Yorker, and I was visiting family when 9/11 went down. We lost people, but that doesn't excuse this type of behavior. The bottom line is, worry more about the annoying fan spilling beer and being rude. I doubt he's gonna be packing....unless he's a Texans fan. :-)
