Chiefs trade Jared Allen to Minnesota:

With the Williams brothers and Allen, that d-line will dominate. This team looks great, on paper. If T. Jackson doesn't f-up too bad, they will definitly be contenders.

MMA Fantasy Draft

Cool article. Don't agree with most of the choices on there. At the end of the day, quality will prevail. The guy whos got BJ and A. Silva has the best team so far in my opinion.

Top 10 Unbreakable Sports Records

Ripken's record is so overrated that it annoys me. Baseball is not physical enough for that record to be so highly touted. Its great that he showed up everyday for work, 6 months out of the year, for 16 years, but it ain't that great. I liked the suggestion about Cael Sanderson, 159-0 is a very impressive feat.

Top 10 Unbreakable Sports Records

Ripken doesn't impress me enough to be #1. Where's Favre's consecutive starts record????? Cy Young's 511 wins will never be broken. Marciano's 49 wins were against lame and over the hill opponents.

They both suck, anyone who ever bought into they're illeducated opinions sucks. That includes any of you.

Tony Kornheiser Hates Sportsfilter

Kornheiser is the classic "jack of all trades, master of none". His limited knowledge about (almost) every sport allows him to form a semi-educated opinion on (almost) every sport. His opinions stink most of the time and he's absolutely horrible on Sunday night football as well.

Pavlik beats Taylor. Again.

I admire Marvin Hagler so much that I named my dog Hagler. Seriously. What a great champion.

Pavlik beats Taylor. Again.

Calzaghe is one of those old guys I was referring too. He'll probably retire after Hopkins decisions him. Pavlik vs Trinidad is not a set fight. Pavlik will probably lose to Arthur Abraham before that ever happens. Mayweather vs Cotto is the only fight I wanna see after Calzaghe vs Hopkins is over.

Pavlik beats Taylor. Again.

How Taylor can go from hanging with Wright and Hopkins to losing twice to Kelly Pavlik, is beyond me. It must be a mental thing for Taylor at this point because Pavlik is a joke. At this point they're both jokes, they look like amateurs in the ring together. I hate to say it, but boxings future is looking bleaker and bleaker. All of the big name characters in every class are getting old and soon all we'll be left with is Cotto and Mayweather. After them who cares.

For The Love of Sport: The Sweet Science

Chico is right, when done masterfully, it is sweet. There is so much more technique, in good boxing, than meets the eye. As far as Floyd vs Hatton goes; I believe that Floyd will win by decision, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Hatton get knocked out.

Jaguars Will Dump Leftwich, Rely on Garrard to Start

Leftwich is a lop. They're better off with Garrard for now. But they might think about making that position a top priorty for next years draft or a trade.

Bob Costas - Patrick Arnold Interview

Jim Grey is the most annoying sportscaster in the world, hands down. But Bob Costas is a close second. Such an annoying little man.
