look .. so reggies is going to make multi-millions for carrying pigskin? so? look at the CEO's of big corparations? they make more than reggie..hell there's usually a bidding war to get the best CEO working for your company..just like in the construction business, if you know a top notch carpenter are you going to pay him 15 bucks an hour or are you going to let him walk away makin $25 an hour?? i know of several non-union carpenters are makin $40 an hour..almost every thing is bartered,the price of your car,your home,your salary, so if reggie thinks he can stiff benson for lets say 10 mill a year for 10 years ..good for reggie..he has no obligation to N.O,his obligation is only to the Saints/teamates and tom benson.period

Nash looks like a hard core criminal,with the "don't fuck with me" attidude..not the peace loving,tree hugging,pothead paficist type, i wonder if he keeps his new 'do for the season..who knows? maybe he'll do a mvp 3peat and a championship..

yes all the saftey stuff is getting out of hand..look at the nascar boys..the new safer barriers are makin the drivers very bold,knowing that puttin a guy into the wall won't kill him..i mean did you see the jeff gordon crash a couple of weeks or so ago?? 5 years ago, he would have died in that crash, yes i believe all the new measures in motorsports are makin drivers fearless and furthermore, reckless..and its a shame because sometime, sooner or later, someone will be killed..but the drivers should know that, on any given weekend ,it could be their last race..

yeah the thought here is thet prongers wife&agent wear the pants..didn't want to hangout with a bunch of roughneckss an their trailerpark culture..unfortunately,chrissy is giving us crazy canucks a bad name when it comes to the wememfolk,ya'll remember janet jones don't ya??the L.a girl who got homesick? pronger ought stand up to the wife,dump her in the tarsands an the agent,sell'em to mike milbury as jr prospect..anybody getting screwed is kevin lowe, the edm org,the fans an pronger,who could have been treated like a god,in that town..but no his wife had to pull a paris, kick everyone in the nuts...ship pronger to columbus, get nash,brule and 3 first rounders, an see if she'll like livin, in the "mistake by the lake"town..but if i were kevin..i'd say Chris,your indefinitely suspended,until futher notice,oh by the way..yer playin here for 4 more years... in the minors..

its not hard to do..all you gotta do is trade mark it..just like cyber squatters, for 35 bucks you can own "coke.com" it was a lucrative way to make money back in the mid to late 90's..some companies paid over a million bucks to get their name back,because somebody was smart about the net, that it was going to explode in growth,an it did..corporate america and a lot of celebrities,had to fork over piles of money,it was for a time, the best get rich quick scheme ever.. some of the squatters are now multi-millioniares...

the drivers today have to basically buy their way on team via sponorship dollars,i mean in F1, there was this british doctor,i can't remember his name, who joined a team by giving the team 10 million and a small sponsorship..just so he could drive.. he didn't have the talent,didn't earn it,just bought it..as for mike waltrip,this is shameful,and for nascar,too..you either qualify or go home..that's the way racing should be, just like at the local tracks...

i remember there was media reports that were suggesting mcguire was using but claimed ignorance and the media accepted it,but then the word got out that big mac was using..he promptly retired...and to say barry and mark playing in 2 different eras is crap..because mark was in a couple of years before barry and mark played in the american league whereas,barry played in the national..as for racism,yes its prevailent still, look at sosa,palemiro,canseco..non-americans are vilified for using roids,but ,oh no, not big mac..he's american,he doesn't cheat,because he's white...well there's barry,he's black,no need to go any further...if you get my drift..the media should be ashamed of themselves, for continuing the stereotypes...barry bonds,will always be a great player,the 7 mvp's speak for themselves...
posted by ktown at 10:31 AM on May 24
well.. with grum's stats, i'm suprised bond's hits by pitch aren't higher...i remember pete rose didn't give a shit about gettin hit, it was about getting on base,creating an opportunity to score runs..hey.. it takes balls to allow a 90 mile an hour fastball to hit you...take one for the team,boys..

sprman92,different players, different eras,always makes for debates,would mays&mantle be as good today, compared back then? or even ruth? ted williams? joltin joe? the players today are bigger,faster,stronger..how would they do, back in the 50's? now.. that's a scary thought.

yes.. great players gotta play great in the playoffs..its what separates the men, from the boys...look at wayne,mario,stevie,trottier,bossy,lafleur,messier,coffey&orr..all these guys are in the hall or on their way..because they got it done, when it counts the most..thorton,luckily, still has time on his side, to erase the demons of past playoff failures,but if he doesn't,he's gonna have to wait a very,very long time, to get in the hall..
posted by ktown at 03:34 PM on May 21
i'm not saying it follows you, from cradle to grave anthology..the minors and the majors are 2 different leagues..so when young arrives,he gets a fresh start...and no i'm not using my 'perceived' imagination..i've been active in organized sports,from softball,fastball,ice hockey,roller hockey,badminton,tennis,touch football,football and soccer for 30 years..that experience, of dealing with referees&umpires,the good,the bad&the ugly ones,tend to speak for themselves...

i'm speaking in general terms i'm sure the umps on strike must have had a good laugh at the scab,but if it were the regular umps,yeah young would be marked...have you ever noticed that certain ball managers and players seem to get more ejections then others?or the strike zone seems large for some and small for others?whether your a hitter or a pitcher?to say all umps treat all players the same is bullshit..because behind the scenes, politics (for a lack of a better word)is happening...and it pretty much exists in all organized sports...
posted by ktown at 08:07 AM on May 13
well i never seen the vid i'm just going by what the media reports..like i said there's no excuse for throwing a bat at anybody much less a ball game..the fact he didn't dispute the suspension,shows he's contrite,he's taking it like a man..who's owning up to his responsibilties..as for umps a marked man? oh absolutely..the ump's look at him as a shit disturber.the ump's gotta teach him 'who's the man...' i've seen it over an over from amatuer sports to professional..you don't show up an ump/ref no matter how bad he is..because they will fuck you and your team..
posted by ktown at 06:57 PM on May 12
i can understand young's frustration, in dealing with amatuer(scab) umps, trying to deal with shoddy calls,but nonetheless,throwing your bat at the guy is no excuse,besides, losing your minor league salary for 50 games,that's gotta hurt,and for young not to appeal the suspension,shows he's taking it like a man,but young has himself marked, for other umps wanting to make a name for themselves,at his expense..i hope the strike ends soon

like i said in my earlier posts about nash being the nba mvp..its a team game,not tennis..nash takes 4-5 average guys,makes them better,nash buys into the team concept,unlike kobe or lebron,where as, its all about them,not the team..shaq plays for the team..heat wasn't in the playoffs until shaq arrived..shaq won 3 championships with the lakers..what's kobe done?81 pts? so? 50+ 5 times? out of 80 games? what's kobe done for the other 75?nash could easliy be selfish and score 30+ points a nite,but does he? no.. he scores 18 points,10 assists a night..that's why he's the MVP..
