Bledsoe retires

If there hadn't been some homecooking when they spotted the ball on Jason Witten's catch (which was a first down), there wouldn't have been anybody holding anything.

College basketball's top ten active coaches - SI thinks they know

I think someone like Mark Few, who has the uncanny knack to consistently overachieve with his team in the NCAA's, was a more deserving canidate. posted by brainofdtrain at 11:37 AM CDT on April 12 Of the list or the spot at UK? Or both?

Hey, Clarett, This is How You Get Drafted Early

I think it's a great story, I live in Louisville, so I am happy he is moving up the draft boards for his sake. I wish he will be around at 22 cause we need a DT for depth. But I would say he'll go to Atlanta jsut because Petrino is familiar with the player. Great story though, he's a great kid.

Bledsoe retires

Romo is shite... Your opinion. He was better than Bledsoe last year and at least has a starting QB job. He'll be just fine. posted by BornIcon at 1:10 PM CDT on April 12 BornIcon, I was about to do it again, but I saw you got there first, got there first. My sentiments exactly...

Titans' Pacman is suspended for 2007 season

Why are you recycling what I already said? posted by BornIcon at 7:21 AM CDT on April 12 Sorry if I missed that. Didn't mean to plagarize, and I recognize the futility of having the same things being repeated, having the same things being repeated to someone who reads it but doesn't hear, but doesn't hear.

Titans' Pacman is suspended for 2007 season

See what I'm getting at? Is a kid on a street corner with his pants below his waist trying his hardest to sell his first nickel sack of weed a gangsta/gangster. Hell no. A gansta is the enron types, the WHITE collar crime type. The mob or mafia types you see in some of your favorite tv shows (sopranos). Starting to see my point. Because you're white and watch the sopranos then get arrested for public drunkenness, does this make you a gansta? If you ask that kid if he's a "gansta", what is he likely to say? Will he say he's a troubled youth trying to sell a bag of weed? Or will he say he's a straight up G. My point is you and I know that listening to Snoop doens't make you a gangsta, but we also know that there are people (white and black) who try to emulate the fictitious lifestyle Snoop is rapping about. White kids in the midwest will flip you a gang sign with their fingers, are they gangstas? Gang members? Do I care? It's got nothing to do with Gangsta anyway. The point is if you choose to pursue a certain lifestyle, (entourages, rented hummers on 36 inch wheels, $50,000 in your mouth) endure the consequences. If the consequence is jail, suspension, seeing your buddy killed, someone stealing your teeth, etc. so be it You choose how your living. If the consequences become too steep for you here's a novel idea--- Change your lifestyle. Nobody cares about the hockey dude cause nobody cares about hockey, dude. They closed the whole sport and nobody cared, except for like 6 Canadians. There will always be more comments to a football related post than one for hockey. I know the black community doesn't get a fair shake. And I agree that Jackson and Sharpton are opportunists at best, but the issue remains an employer has the right to alter the consequences for your conduct as they see fit. You have a right to comply or endure the consequences if you don't. You can always work somewhere else if you want. If there's no other football jobs in America, is that fair? Who cares? That's so not my problem. It's Pacman's.

Goodell wants the NFL Banhammer

This 1 person over seeing hundreds with which he has nothing in common doesn't accomplish anything. posted by Bishop at 4:00 PM CDT on April 4 Is that the NFL or the United States? The league should be run by the players union? I don't have a problem with it, but I know 32 billionare individuals and or corporations who would. Why do I have any empathy for the tribulations of multi-million dollar athletes who repeatedly find themselves convicted of crimes in a court of law? "Recidivsm. repeat offender" "Come and see the violence inherent in the system." "Help, help, I'm being repressed."

"It's not drunken driving in New Jersey if it involves a Zamboni."

If he was under the influence when he learned how to drive the zamboni, he would know how to drive the zambonii under the influence. Not that the zamboni was under the influence, unless you mean under the influence of one under the influence. Right

NFL Competition Committee won't change overtime,

I like the attitude some players have against dancing in the backfield after making a sack, or posing like a body builder over the quarterback, or fancy touchdown celebrations. I have heard more than one recently say to the effect: they don't dance and celebrate because they expected to be in the endzone or expect to sack the QB. I just enjoy a blue collar approach to football. Hey it can be fun and you can do what you want, but I like it when they act like it's all part of the job, and not like they won the Powerball.

"The guy said, 'Hit the net like any Negro would.'"

I agree, asshats come from all over. There are also grade B asshats. Just an FYI.

Say it is so, Joe!

My favorite Theismann moment was when he had his leg broken by L.T., he looks over from his stretcher to the Giants defense picks out L.T. and shouts, "I'll be back!". L.T. shouts back,"Not tonight". Jaws is definately an upgrade. Now they need to get rid of Kornholer. As long as they don't replace him with Wilbon. PTI should be MPH for My personal Hell. I hate both them brother truckers. They should put Madden and Summerall in the booth with the corpse of Cosell. Put some headphones on him, let Madden do his Cosell impressions. Weekend at Bernies thing. That's MNF. I'm ready.

Rose admits to betting on Reds every night

There's no wonder he's not in the Hall, they haven't voted anyone in three of the last five years. Is there no one worthy? Will the roid users get in? 50 years from now we will still be arguing wether he should be there or not. Here's the thing. It's not unlike Shoeless Joe. Phenomenal player vs. Integrity of the Game. The game has to win, and the issue is only pressed by the phenomenal players. Half the story is that they were that good.
