Suspected NBA Referee's Games Hit the Over More Often

The feds are only investigating him for supposed violations starting in the past two years, thats why this evidnce is so damning. If the 44% is viewed as his "pre-corruption" numbers and 57% as his "fixing lines for the mob" numbers, the difference would be astounding and yes, would seem to indicate that something has changed in the fundamental way he calls games. 13% is a HUGE difference....

Bolts zap Schottenheimer.

Wait a second, this could the best case senario for Marty... ...no, wait hear me out... 1. He gets fired. Ok bad, but he doesn't look like the goat here as much as Smith and Spano do if the Chargers don't at least win the AFC west next year. 2. LT is all but a lock (ok, at least the frontrunner) to be the next Madden Cover Guy. Which means the jinx will be in full effect next year. If he goes down or is ineffective, like that seahawks' back was this year, then this is really only a .500 team (like the Colts w/o Manning). 3. So SD get between 6 and 8 wins, misses the playoffs, sportswriters everywhere gasp, and suddenly, SD is talking about "the good old 'Martyball' days" Its just one of the possible senarios that I can think of, but this one most vindicates my belief that a 14-2 coach should Never, EVER be fired.

Football fans accused of hanging sheep from goalpost

"This rivalry has been going on for years and years," said Sevier County sheriff's Deputy Russell Mason. "Maybe it got a little out of hand." Maybe?

New NBA Rules

The "'Sheed Wallace Rule"? How about the Duncan Rule... This rule might make the NBA even less entertaining.

A-Rod Agonistes

wfraz: If it's how he really feels than yes, it is honest perspective. Whether you are the things you said is only know to you and your significant other relationship(s). A tool is the guy who says something because it's what he thinks people want to hear. Maybe we have different definitions of that word.

A-Rod Agonistes

Wow, you have to be some huge tool to even say those things to yourself, let alone to a reporter for public consumption. In a world where athletes are told to always say "the right thing", or else the media shoves them under a bus, it's good to see some honest perspective from a player of his calibur. I'd rather hear this than "well I just go out there and play... just giving 110%... I'll do my best to live up to expectations..."ect., even if it does come off as little bit arrogant.

The Red Sox Worst Nightmare

Pitching was in trouble all year long and Varitek being hurt/out just double underscored it. There it is. Pitching is the real reason. Even if the line-up was healthy, pitching is the difference. Good thing Theo held on to those young guns, or else this could be a real problem down the line. Really hope Papi's ok....

Beasts of the East.

When making the case for the "toughest division", one must take into account all four teams in said division. No other division except the NFC East has 4 legitimate playoff contenders. The AFC-W has the Raiders, AFC-S=Texans&Titans, AFC-N=Browns, AFC-E=Jets&Bills, NFC-W=49ers, NFC-S=Saints, NFC-N=Lions. As of now, most people would be shocked to see any of these teams in the playoffs, but not surprised to see any of the four NFC-E teams in it. The "best division" argument, however, will never be agreed on until we see four 9+ win teams in a division in the same year, and if anyone has a chance to do that it has to be the nfc east. Will any of them be in the Superbowl? Doubt it. But thier all in the hunt...

Kornheiser Opens Eyes, Including His Own

T.K. is better then any version of good old Denny Miller(I still get cold chills when I remember his MNF days) It wasn't great, but it is preseason for brocasters, too. I'll reserve judgement until Oct. or Nov. Speaking of jugements: Joe Buck is joining the Fox pregame??? First I had to mute the WS, now pre-game and half time on sundays? >click< , swiching channel to cbs

Little League controversy

Coaching question... Why would the best hitter in your line-up, whom we can assume bats in the three, four or five hole, be protected by your worst hitter? Observation: only in baseball would this happen to a kid and no matter how mean it might seem, Mr. Farr wanted his kids to get the win. His concern should be about the success of his players, thats why he's their coach and thats what the parents expect of him. Reality Check: Its kids playing a game. I've been the last out in a PONY game and I got over it... at least these kids weren't on the streets ealing drugs.

YES! It happened!

Incorrect assumption on my part, I apologize. Guess i figured the Knicks would just pay up like they have been for every other HUGE contract that stuck to them. I imagine he'll still get some or most of it....

YES! It happened!

Weedy, I don't understand why you would imply that we should "start our sarcasm", when there obviously nothing funny about this situation... Oh, except that Dolan and Isaiah gave Larry 10 Mil to coach the team, but only 40 Mil to not coach them. Does this mean there won't be anymore playful banter between Larry and Starbury anymore? Awe, shucks... I'm gonna miss that. And has anybody thought about poor Mr. Brown in all of this? After all this was his "dream job"... I kinda liked the guy, sure hopes he lands on his feet (or at least a big pile of money)
