Is US High School Basketball Really Behind the Times?

I do agree that high school games should be 40 minutes,instead of 32 like junior high,but I dont think he shot clock is necessary until college.

Josh Howard Disrespects National Anthem

dman is wrong,and right.all Black people of the USA dont insist on being called African-American.I for 1 hate that term.I was born here.so were my parents,grand parents,and so on.unless one of your parents was born here,and one wasnt:you are not a hyphenated american.I get so tired of people with their"if you dont like how it is here,go live somewhere thats worse" comment.just because some things are better here doesnt make it great all the time.I bet people who cant walk dont think it's great that they can still use their hands.I bet they would much rather have full use of their bodies.and to mr baddasse,unless you were fighting against bush and his asshole click,you werent fighting for my freedom.he is the one trying to take away my rights.NOT ANYONE IN AFGHANISTAN,OR IRAQ,OR BOSNIA,THE #1 ENEMY OF US CITIZEN'S RIGHTS HAS BEEN IN THE WHITE HOUSE FOR THE LAST 8 YEARS(2 IF SUBTRACT HIS VACATIONS.I RESPECT ANY SOLDIER WHO PUTS HIS LIFE ON THE LINE,NO DOUBT.BUT LETS GET REAL HERE,HIS WHOLE GAME WAS A LIE.

Josh Howard Disrespects National Anthem

230 something years ago slavery was about 100 years away from being abolished(give or take another 100 with the jim crow laws),murder and displacement of the natives(manifest destiny) was just getiing warmed up,and this "song of freedom is supposed to be respected by all americans?I beg to differ.only one group of people got their freedom back then.people of all races and colors have been victims of unspeakable acts since then.I'm gonna have to side with howard on this,not because Il'm Black,but because I know the truth.howard does not speak for all Black people,and neither do I.I just think it's ironic that everytime someone has a negative opinion about the symbols of the freedom we have in this country,people get all upset,and want them ran-off.or like one dumb-ass said"lynching at 11".get a grip people.flags are just thread,songs are just notes and words.just because a person got rich playing ball,doesn't mean he has to keep his mouth shut about the way he feels.

Fan Ejected From Yankee Stadium For Bathroom Break During 'God Bless America'

I find it very ironic when people's rights are taken away during songs that are supposed to be about celebrating what a "free" country this is supposed to be.I guess the pursuit of happiness doesnt include being able to relieve yourself until so sappy song is over.what a joke.nobody will have to worry about this stupidity in the playoffs,cause finally the yankees wont be there.

It is kind of messed up that you get judged more for the 2 games you lose,more than the 9 or 10 you usually win.is it the coaches fault that his best 2 players were either unavailable,or virtually ineffective most of the year?all props to Carr.I hope the next guy gets a fair chance to carry on the tradition of the winningest football program in college history

Bonds will boycott HOF

Just like "cheating" on your taxes,if THE MAN doesn't catch you,there is no crime.all the speculation about his head,his body,whatever is not enough for a conviction.if something that didnt even exist,when the law was made,how is it illegal?if there is no way to detect it,how is it banned?baseball had rules against gambling clearly posted in the club house for X years.if they didn't want people taking that stuff,allegedly,they should have had rules.like it or not,Barry Bonds played by the rules as they were written.oh yeah,comparing Bonds to ken lay is just plain stupid.lay knowingly financially raped untold thousands of people.how many people lost their pensions because a baseball player more home runs than usual?

NCAA may move 3-point line

It's a good idea.th college line should not be the same as the high-school line.there should be some progression as the level of play goes up.It's also good that it is farther than the international line.maybe they'll get used to it,and maybe be better in international play.

In a battle of image, Duke takes black eye

I have been playing basketball for 22 years,and I have never tried to block a shot with a cocked,downward moving elbow.Danny Green pinned a shot to the backboard.Brandon Wright swatted one out towards a teammate.that is how you block a shot.henderson took a cheap shot.the ball was already gone.you can see he just closed his eyes and hit whatever he could.he's a typical duke puke.coach k says they don't play that way.I guess nobody wants to bring up when laettner stomped on that other guys chest in the ncaa tournament back in '91 or '92 either.just listen to the chants at cameron.high test scores,low class.

Court rules MLB players can be ID'd for steroids

This is straight up bullshit!!the government has absolutely no right to violate what the players agreed to in their CBA.if they agreed to test with anonymity,that's exactly how it should have stayed.do they really think players who were doing anything that may have been illegal would have voluntarily been tested if they knew their names would be given up?Whoever this judge is should be removed from the bench.he/she has no grasp of the concept of a CBA.must be a republican.this is just another effort by the government to try to tear down Barry Bonds.they couldn't get his friend to rat,now they are circumventing a binding union agreement.I would think they have something better to do with their time.maybe instead of looking at cloudy piss,they should try to figure out how to keep all those men and women wasting their lives in Iraq.

David Stern has no business telling people what to do on thier own time.as long as they are not breaking the law he should mind his own.he should worry about the players having a problem with the new ball.I think its funny that a lawyer decides what ball is better,and now want to infringe on peoples constitotional rights.I think iy would be wise for all pro athletes to have a professional body guard.that way if someone starts trouble it can be handled without them catching a case.a 6'-6" 300 pound man has a way of settling differences without a gun.sometimes before they start.
