Rockies SS Jose Reyes receives 52-game suspension for domestic violence incident

"after which she was treated at a local hospital"

My ex was treated at a local hospital even though she was never touched, don't have to be any bruises or signs of any injuries to be treated. Fake a wrenched neck or hurt back and doctors cannot prove if they are faking or really hurt.

My point was that punishment should not be implemented until the "allegations" are proved true because if the allegations are proved false it's hard to undo the punishment.

Rockies SS Jose Reyes receives 52-game suspension for domestic violence incident

Allegations are exactly what the word means "allegations", if the courts are unwilling to press charges why should the govern bodies of sports be allowed to discipline athletes on allegations. Look at Kurt Busch who had to set out races because a bat crap crazy ex-girlfriend made "allegations" against him after she vowed to ruin his life. Innocent until proven guilty is thrown out the window in these cases and when these athletes are proven innocent or charges are dropped they didn't get the time or money back. As a victim of false "allegations" from a vengeful ex-wife I know of what I speak. I'm glad I wasn't fired before the truth came out. Everyone is entitled to due process.

The Fall

As someone who has never cared for "scoccer" (but did enjoy a arena game I saw once) I never understood how these players got away with their flops. After reading the story I understand why they do it but still don't like it. As an American I think replay and punishment could stop the flopping but my friend from Greece who goes absolutely insane when watching just says it's part of the game. Good story, glad I read it.

Close but no cigar (or football). I added it up last night and thought I tied him, but alas I must of been wrong.


I agree, no points for spread unless you pick the winner.

I agree with Howard_T that you should get more points for hitting the spread exactly then for being within the margin or error.

Yes more points for picking the winner.

Matthew Stafford: the $53m mistake costing the Detroit Lions dearly

As a die hard Lions fan for sixty years I cannot blame the terrible Lions offense solely on Stafford, the Lions have had no running game since Barry Sanders and until last year a defense that couldn't stop anyone. Since Stafford became a Lion they could score (2011 4th highest in the NFL) until last year when the defense won games. The only thing that changed with the offense the last two years was the coaching staff with Lombardi destroying the offense. No Stafford isn't a superstar but Tom Brady couldn't help the Lions with Lombardi running the offense. My beloved Lions will continue to lose but I won't put the blame on Stafford alone, Lombardi has to go.
