you'd think their work product generated billions of dollars of revenue or something! WORK? Give me a break. These a$$holes wouldn't know work if it hit them in the nuts. $166,250 a year pension for how many years of putzing around playing a game a few months a year? How would these dirt bags like to have worked for 37 years at a real job only to have the company fold? Screw ALL these overpaid athletes.

South Sevier football coach Travis McAllister said the sheep slaying fired up his players. "It's part of the rivalry," the coach said. "It gives our kids an incentive to play harder." McAllister admitted to a few chuckles upon hearing about the prank. Maybe this ''coach'' would have a few more chuckles if it were one of his kids strung up there.

"The sheep came from a farm north of Richfield, Mason said, and was killed in a field there. The teenagers did not have permission to be on the farm or to take the sheep." Too bad the farmer didn't catch them and put a couple of shotgun blasts in them. Then mommmy and daddy could defend their little a$$holes.

he was told outright (by the kid himself or his father) that Jack Johnson would never play for the Canes. Tell him McDonald's is hiring. At least it's a REAL job.

Olympics or not, the bottom line is $$$$. These dorks would sell their mother and kids if the price was right. It's that mentality that the American public has to be catered to that has a large part of the world resenting the US. When the networks pour billions of $$ into something they control it on all levels.

Play the games in a domed studio with only the TV technicians in attendance. Broadcast the TV games with no audio. Should work great on radio broadcasts.

Injuries have kept Hill out of 73 percent of the team's games. If this guy was in the real world do you think he could miss 73% of his working obligation and still be paid $93 for 7 years? Get a job, Grant.

Relax people. The changing of logos is strictly for marketing. People just HAVE to have that new logo. Expect to see a change from time to time. It brings in the $$$. They should change some of the team names starting with the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, Carolina Hurricanes, Columbus Bluejackets, etc.

Maybe when a player screws up royaly with a stupid play they should be suspended. Would help prevent point shaving and beating the point spread. If the call went Oklahoma's way they would be glad to take it. Stop the whining and play the game.

They should make the goal the same dimensions as a soccer goal, and remove the goalie during shootouts.

Jordan's complete lack of social awareness about the impact of selling ridiculously priced sneakers has always pissed me off. I find it ironic that Jordan, a black man, has made millions of dollars hawking products made by slaves.

Saving this blood to use for the child who donated it is fine. As far as an athlete is concerned, if they are injured and cannot play, they should get a job.

Even more impressive was his ability to take advantage of Yankee Stadium's 295-ft. right field line while swinging a 42-ounce bat. All baseball parks should have the same outfield dimensions as other sports have the same dimensions of the entire playing surface.

"When I signed the contract, I pictured myself going down there and winning the Stanley Cup," said former Stars winger Bill Guerin, who will be paid $4.4 million after a buyout this summer. "When you compare that feeling to this one [being bought out], you feel horrible." Then DON'T take the money, Billy boy.

Aren't sports a great way to bring up our young people? Give athletes a pat on the rear end no matter how horrendous the crime.

Alcoholism is brought on by a weak person who cannot control his behavior, someone who cannot face reality. Disease MY A$$. With these athletes it's always the same story, it is the pressure, etc. They should try working their a$$e$ off at 2 or 3 jobs and still have a struggle. This a$$hole should be kicked to the curb.

The Cubans in Florida can give all the chin music they want but if they feel that strongly about it why don't they go and unseat Castro? There are sure enough of them in Florida. Let the rich ones finance the operation and maybe Lowell can donate some of his millions to the cause. When Cuba is free again they can move back to their homeland. Only then will south Florida be given back the the US.

Oh, if only these cream puffs had to face the likes of Bob Gibson, Ryne Duren and others of that era. They would let you know that they were going to hit you and they would. The pitch that Lackey threw in this case amounted to what you see in slow pitch softball. These guys don't have any idea what getting hit is really like. Also, the batters in those days didn't wear helmets or any of the body armor that you see now.

Raising ticket prices and more advertising sound good. Also, how about some of the millions made in TV revenue. College sports is a multi-million dollar business. Let the money made in football and basketball supplement the lesser sports when it comes to stipends for athletes.

Let's stop the hipocrasy. Just pay these athletes to represent the school and get rid of this crap about the student athlete. If they want to study and graduate let them, if not just pay them. College basketball and football are developmental leagues for the NBA and the NFL. Many of them leave school before graduating anyway. And in some cases it's a good thing because they probably wouldn't graduate.

Would all the sympathizers here feel the same way if this guy injured or killed someone close to them????
posted by joromu at 08:55 PM on April 29
The only reason this guy is getting sympathy from some people is because he is a former athlete and some people see them as a god. In reality he is a screw-up and although given chance after chance after chance he continued to screw up until he killed himself. It is just thankful that he didn't injure or kill anyone else.
