The fact that the President of the University to Joe Paterno knew of the Sandusky incident and decided to handle it internally (sweep it under the rug) is a truely sad statement. All of them knew Sandusky ran a charity for abused chbildren. By them not coming forward, it allowed this animal to continue to escort his victims in through the front door. It will be interesting to see once the dust settles how many of the board of trustee members who are calling for Joe Paterno's ousting also knew about Sandusky's wrong doings.
They all need to go, and now, not at the end of the season.

At The Meadowlands where the Giants and Jets play its definetly higher. I use to share season tickets for the Jets but cancelled due to the drunkeness at the games. The last time I went to a game, 5 minutes into the game a guy walking up the stairs stopped next to ours seats and threw up on the steps. A couple of minutes later he walked back to his seat with another beer. Give me the couch and high def.

Good for Paul Devorski! As a fellow referee although not at the pro level, it's amazing how people think just because you've got a striped shirt on they can treat you like a piece of crap. The guy is just doing his job and a tough one at that. At least when I get heckled by a fan or a coach I can can them removed from the rink, Devorski can't do that. I'm sure the Columbus fans got exactly what they deserved. Devorski has now become my favorite ref. And remember all you fans out there in hockey land, the guy with the whistle is always right.

I'd like to hear from someone on the medical side of things. Could some of these guys be getting false positive readings? Is it possible their bodies have a completely different chemistry from your average Joe that allows them to race at top speed every day for 100 miles, thus giving false positives when they are tested? Just wondering.

People making 30 to 40 grand a year fighting over primadonnas making millions a year, doesn't make much sense. I guess the only good thing about ticket prices being so high, is that the average sports nut guy or girl that might do this kind of thing can't afford to go to the ballpark anymore. Unfortunately, they can still afford to go to the bar.

I don't know about this sport yet. I've been a big fan of boxing all my life, but a sport that allows you to keep beating on your opponent when he's down? Reminds me of too many bouncers I've seen in action over the years. I am glad to see they've cleaned it up a bit though, when this sport first started it was sickening to watch more often than not. Speaking of bouncers, a little remark about bouncers a comedian made who's name I can 't remember. How to be a bouncer; #1 be a dick #2 stand by a door

I know this is a move that had to be made, my question is; how did there D get so bad? I don't think this is the last move Murray will make either. I know the trade dead line is over, but there is obviously some chemistry problems in the dressing room. If Emery is causing problems, send him to the minors. Alfredsson not leading in the dressing room? Take the C away from him and give it to Spezza or Heatley. This group is way too talented to be playing like this. Who would have thought at this time of year, the Canadians would be the cream of the crop of Canadian teams playing in the eastern division.

Two skates to the head in one week. Earlier this week, linesmen Pat Dapozzo got caught up in a pile and got kicked in the face breaking his nose and requiring 20 stitches. As if that wasn't bad enough, a fight broke out after that and DaPozzo tried to get in and break it up with his nose splattered. Looks like both those guys picked a bad week to quit sniffing glue.

I've been partners on Yankee tickets with a couple of guys for years now. 4 tickets 16 rows behind the dugout. They've just increased the price of tickets 100% for next year. 4 seats just for the regular season, $83,000! George Stienbrenner and the rest of the Yankee organization can kiss my ass!, which I'm sure is exactly what they want to hear. The Yankees(as well as every other pro sports team) aren't interested in real fans, they want corporate assholes filling the stadium. Guys who wander in in the 3rd inning, and leave at the bottom of the 7th. The parking situation is just another example of how little respect professional sports franchises have for the average Joe. It's time congress forget about the steriod witch hunt and zero in on who they are really suppose to be protecting, real people who continue to be hurt by this kind of bullshit.

Any time a coach spits in another coaches face it IS that bad, but it's especially bad at the mite level. (8 to 10 year olds) As an ice hockey ref, you wouldn't believe some of the crap coming out of mite level coaches directed not only at their young players, but also at young referees who also use this level for learning. The mite level is suppose to help develop the love of the game for young players. A screaming adult behind the bench can only be a negative for children who at that age don't even know where to line up on face offs. The organizations that handle policing hockey in North America need to set a zero tolerance policy at this level. One incident and your done in coaching for good.

I love what coach Gundy did. Not only for the fact that he went off on a reporter protecting one of his kids,(yes at 21 you STILL are a kid) but that he went off for a prolonged period of time. If I'm one of the other kids on that team and see my coach sticking up for one of his players like that, I'd want to go to war for him. I'm all for freedom of the press, but if you're gonna give it, you'd better be damn ready to receive it too. That reporter got everything she deserved.

I'll bet sometime in the near future, they'll come up with a new test, and realize the tests they're giving now are giving false readings on these incredibly conditioned athletes. Just think about what these guys are doing, riding 100 to 150 miles a day sitting on those skinny ass bicycle seats six hours a day. Not to mention riding at a tempo must humans couldn't tolerate for 5 minutes much less six hours. There has to be some sort of different chemistry going on inside these guys.I've done all the basic sports, baseball, football, hockey, basketball, bicycle racing is by far the hardest sport I've ever competed in.

On top of fining the Patriots for cheating, the league should fine the Patriots for allowing Belichik to wear that tacky ass sweatshirt on the sideline. This is suppose to be the primer league, to showcase your best, and he looks like that? It's a total slap in the face to coaches like Lombardi, Landry, and Brown. If you allow your coach to represent your team looking like that, I'm sure you'll look the other way when he cheats too. I guess that's what happens when you start your head coaching career in Cleveland.

I hope it works, but I don't know. I've refereed ice hockey for a while now,and sometimes something just seems to snap in certain kids (and pros for that matter) when they get on the ice. Kids are taught from an early age, if you can see your opponents back number straight on, or if you can't see his eyes don't him him, but that doesn't always seem to work. I hope the patch doesn't give them a false sense of security when they go into the corners.

#1 THX you're beautiful!! #2 I can't wait for Bonds to break the home run record just to watch Bud Selig squirm. I know all about the steriod thing, but even if he was taking steriods, you still have to hit a round ball coming at you 100mph with a round bat. I'd have to be on heroin to get anywhere near that plate with a ball coming that fast at me. Lastly, a couple of years ago I saw Barry Bonds at Disney world, he signed everybody's autograph, and I mean EVERYBODY. Extremely polite too. On a totally different note, as I mentioned above, I saw him in Disney World. Now for the record, I hate the f ing place, but my family loves it. When I am roped into going there, I spend most of my time trying to get in front of peoples video camera's and giving them the finger. I figured I've given the finger to people in over 40 countries.

Bettman, the players salaries and the owners are killing the sport, they don't need any help from ESPN. Bettman keeps telling anyone who will listen what great shape the NHL is in. Unfortunely for Mr.Bettman, we the public are a little smarter than he had led us to believe. Why pay $90 to go see a bunch of guys who only show up mentally for half the games when I can pay $5 to go see a high school game where the kids are playing BECAUSE THEY LOVE THE GAME!!, not because they are getting paid millions of dollars. In my opinion, the NHL started going down the toilet the day the made players salaries public information.

The Devils would do themselves some good in going after Sheldon Souray. He's a better score than Rafalski and he's definetely tougher. Losing Gomez to the Rangers is a tough nut to swallow, it's going to be very hard to boo him....but I will. The players leaving NJ are saying all the right things, but the bottom line is NJ has the deadest fans in the NHL, but it's not the real fans fault. My season ticket in NJ 15 years ago was $17. That same ticket is now $90. Folks that are really into hockey can't afford to go, but apparently players think they need 5 million a year, then expect people making $60,000 to $100,000 a year to drop $7500 a year on season tickets. The Meadowlands and now the new building in Newark next year are filled with corporate shmucks who come in 10 minutes into the game, leave with 10 minutes left, and know nothing about the game. Just for your info for those of you that don't live on the east coast, Newark NJ is to hockey what the Jamaican bobsled team was to the winter Olympics. As stated by tahoemoj, just a bit of frustration from a Devils fan.

If I was Basillie, I sure as hell wouldn't buy a frachise that was 21st in a league that doesn't draw to begin with and leave it there. Good for him for pressuring Bettman and those old foggies on the board of govenors into allowing the move. If Bettman payed attention to guys like Basillie, the league would be in a lot better shape, and it would definetely have a better TV deal. If Bettman had half a backbone (which we all know he doesn't) he'd make the next expansion team in Las Vegas and be the first profesional sports franchise in a city with a ton of people and a ton of money. Unfortunetly for hockey, Bettman is nothing more than a lawn jockey wearing a designer suit. If any of you are going to respond, "you can't have a profesional sports franchise where there's legal sports betting" my answer would be look no further the Rick Tocchet, Wayne Gretzky, and Wayne's wife Betzky, you don't have to be in sin city to make a sports bet.

Yashin is just another puke that thought he needed to re negotiate his contract in the middle of his existing one, the Islanders should have dumped his sorry ass on the spot then. Blame it on the owners and GM's for caving into these nutless athletes and their agents. Hopefully the cap will make teams more responsible with their payrolls. Obviously, the Islanders haven't learned their lesson, The Black Hand is right on the money about DiPietro, he will certainly be the next albatross for the Islanders. Even the spend crazy Rangers have learned to work within the cap. Until the Islanders do the same, they will be a last place team with a few overpaid ex superstars. The only thing Long Island has going for them is the back page of the Post. (any of you that don't live in the NY area miss some great back page sports headlines)
