Raiders Stadium Backers To Las Vegas: Give Us $750 Million, Or Else

The taxpaying citizens would be better off if these billionaires build their stadium elsewhere. (or use their own money) These taxpayer funded stadiums never bring in more money then it costs to build and maintain them, big holes to throw tax dollars into.

I'm confused (which is easy to do) Last week rcade and I had 14 total points, I scored 7 points and rcade scored 4 points, but the total points now are ic23b 15 points and rcade 14 points. I see most of the total points for everyone doesn't seem to add up from last week. Am I missing something?

The 12th Annual chicobangs Memorial SpoFi CFL Pick 'Em

I do not know yet how I did with the NBA pick'ems even though the Cavilers were victorious, I do not know how I fared in the NHL pick'ems when I picked the Sharks but wanted the Penguins to win. But I will choose my CFL picks well and if righteousness prevails I will see the Roughriders ascend to the pinnacle of glory along with my own triumphant victory in the CFL pick'em challenge. Now that I have thrown down the gauntlet I will make my picks.

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.
