So his coach offers support? Buy him a jockstrap.: Why do NFL coaches abound that refuse to hold behavioral standards for their players? It's simple. Their employers don't require it. Supporting this guy (and his appeals) is dumb. If he wins his appeal, how much you want to bet he gets caught again NEXT season?

Swedes rout Czechs, now they wait.: Apparantly some of the press called this one wrong, too. Now they get either Russia or Finland in the finals, and somebody else is waiting to see who gets the scoop.

And then I read this, and I laughed out loud.: Lately here I have been accused by others of 'Modano bashing'. This morning, I read this column, and I offer it as evidence of my case in point. This may be the reason the US and Canada team organizers need to recoup their thought processes before trying this again.

Said it before, now someone agrees.: Finally someone agrees that the pros should be yanked from the Olympics. Unfortunately, nobody will do anything about it. Perhaps the NHL should pay attention, their fans would be happier.

Who cares what YOU believe, Mikey?: Here another big blower says he thinks his brother will be exonerated. Of which charge, Michael? Or is it everything? I really doubt the team that kicked him out will be reinstating him, but the NCAA isn't the NFL, either.

Brett Favre & Marshall Faulk want to retire,: but I don't think either should. In the case of Favre, though, if the Packer board allows Mike 'half-assed' Sherman to return next year, then I'd do it. He has said he'd play for Steve Mariucci, and Mariucci was screwed royally in Detroit, where this article comes from.
