OLN Could Be Seeking To Add MLB And Pro Lacrosse: Wow , someone better have deep pockets to wrestle MLB away from ESPN. Getting the NHL was easy seeing how ESPN wasn't too interested . They better hope they don't overextend themselves too fast , this would be expensive.

Hall of Famer denies holding racist views on players: Hall of Famer Bob Feller said "I'm anything but a racist," in an interview with the Des Moines Register . Lets see what you think ..."A lot of these players coming from the Caribbean, they don't even know the rules." 'Well, they don't know the ground rules and they don't know some of the fundamentals, but they're learning them.' I've been hearing this guy all my life sounding off like he was THE best pitcher ever and everyone else is subservient to him. Great yes , best ever ? Debatable but unlikely .

Ricky Williams: 'I Never Really Was Away: OK , Red flag here NFL hierarchy ..... ``It doesn't seem like I was gone, not even a week,'' the former NFL rushing king said. ``Everywhere I go, I hear 'Welcome back.' But everywhere I have been, I have always been with myself. I'm with myself now more than ever. ``It's funny people say 'Welcome back' when I haven't gone anywhere.'' Ricky ,you were gone . Check the record books , ask your teammates you stabbed in the back if you were gone . Sounds like Ricky needs a drug test already .

Toss Out All The Hall Of Shamers: Just a thought here , can you really punish someone ala McGwire for using steroids when there was no rules against using them at the time they played ? Didn't the rule just get established this season banning steroids ? Now if they knowingly used them while the rules were in force then by all means punish them . What if down the line they make new rules banning something else , do you remove some players previously elected ? Just a thought .

McNabb insists he has no issues with T.O.: Why not ? He should , matter of fact he should be pissed as hell . As leader of the Eagles offense he should take exception to having anyone on the team holding up the chances of fullfilling the objective of the squad , which is winning the Super Bowl . Although Owens did play a great game considering being out 6 weeks with a leg injury it was McNabb and the rest of the team who played every game getting into the championship game . Jumping on one player for being tired or sick at the end of the game was just childish and uncalled for . There are many plays during a game that if just one had come out differently then maybe the Eagles wouldnt have been behind at the end trying to catch up . A defensive play may have kept the Patriots from scoring and would never had been in that position , whos to say . Of course this is Owens we are talking about with a long history of immaturity . Grow up T.O. , the Eagles made it to the Super Bowl while you sat on the bench so maybe your not as important as you think ,now if the Eagles can just get themselves to believe it .

Larry Brown announces this will be his last coaching stop: No kidding ..... he's 64 now and missed time for health reasons last season, i'd be shocked if he made it through his new contract with Knicks with their potent line-up . Being a defensive minded coach handed a team that can't score if their life depended on it , I would think he like all Knicks fans should slip into a coma watching them "perform" .
