Vinatieri Signs with the Colts

I think this is a great move. Vanderjagt has been becoming a liability (not necessarily on the field). He is the most accurate kicker in NFL History, but he has been in a dome. Vinatieri has been playing in Boston, which is crazy weather. Vanderjagt 87.5% in a dome. Vinatieri 81.9% outside in Boston. I'll take Vinatieri.

Vinatieri Signs with the Colts

Vanderjagt was going to cost too much for the Colts to keep. They should have considered getting rid of the REAL CHOKER (Manning) to save cap room. Manning is the one who made the last kick of the year 46 yards rather than 36 because he called the stupid plays. Rather than handing off to Edge (who is also gone) and letting him run for his usual 4+ yards per carry, he throws more incomplete passes that gained 0 yards. As a Colts fan I say, keep the Edge (the most consistant running back in the league) and Vandy (who is the most consistant kicker in the league) and get rid of Peyton (who is the most consistant CHOKER in the league). I think this is one of the stupidest statements I have ever read. Get rid of one of the best QB's in the league...yeah that's smart

Wily Mo Pena traded to BoSox for Bronson Arroyo, Cash

I'm a Reds fan so I was able to see Wily Mo play quite a bit. The man has power, but he also misses the ball quite a bit. His fielding does need to improve but I believe it will in time. I am happy with this trade because the Reds desperately needed some pitching, and I have always been a fan of Arroyo. Hopefully he can bring some of those good memories to Cincy.

Mike Davis resigns as Indiana University basketball coach.

Mike Davis can recruit very well. He is not the best coach yet. I say yet, because I believe one day he will be a great coach after he gets a little more experience. I'm glad to see him go, but not in this way. He deserved better than what he got in the end. Now I just want to see Steve Alford coaching here next year.

Nash Must Be The MVP

Lebron's triple-double leads cavs Leads them to where. Yeah he's great...but he is no MVP. I will add that I do believe he will win several MVP awards in his career, cause the man is just unbelievable. I'm with insomnyuk in cleveland you have Lebron James and Lebron James......in Phoenix nash has a decent team Z, Gooden, Hughes (i know he just got hurt), Damon Jones, Donyell Marshall, and Eric Snow. To me that is a pretty good supporting cast.

Ty Law...Free Agent

I would love to see him come and play for the colts (although i know that will never happen) A veteran in the secondary would be huge for the colts.

Nash Must Be The MVP

My vote would also go with Nash. Just because he basically gets everything started for the Suns. Without him they play a much slower, low scoring game. He is fun to watch.

DOWNHILL SPIRAL: The case behind Bode Miller's fifth-place finish.

I'm just saying that people were expecting him to come back with 5 olympic gold medals...that's crazy. It is hard enough to win one. And by "we" I mean the fans, media, etc...

Tainted Steel

What makes this funny is that the same team for whom the NFL supposedly fixed the Super Bowl, was complaining about a game being "fixed" against them just two weeks earlier. Really, if a team gets screwed by the officials one week and helped by them the next, is the fix really in? The Colts were the better story for the NFL for that game....but when the Steelers won that game (which would have been highway robbery if they hadn't) they became the better story for the NFL. And how do you make money in the entertainment business...good story lines.

DOWNHILL SPIRAL: The case behind Bode Miller's fifth-place finish.

Everyone needs to give this guy a break. Let him enjoy the Olympic scene how he wants to. These guys he is going up against are no chumps, so it is almost impossible to win gold in everything. They also had that issue with changing skis right before the race, and then straddling the gate (which happens a lot). This is what we do, set unacheivable goals for somebody, and then bitch when they don't get them. This guy is good, he will win a gold.

Tainted Steel

The game was rigged, everyone knows it, and the NFL will never admit to it of course. This idea is hilarious and I would love to see it happen, but doubt it ever will.

NBA Reserves Named:

The NBA All Star game is a joke. It is a popularity contest where even if someone has been hurt most of the season they still get voted in. This is supposed to showcase the best people from the current year, not just the big names. The only good part of the All Star weekend is the 3-point contest.

True Fan or Greedy Fan?

I don't know why they want this ball in the Hall of Fame anyway. The drop kick is a useless play in football. Like everyone else in here I agree that the Pats are doing the right thing because this guy is out of his mind to expect these things.

I like this punishment. It is what should have happened to the Detroit Pistons.

Artest Finally Dealt to Kings

Thank you Sacremento for taking this crazy man off our hands and out of Indianapolis. He brought nothing but trouble with and I don't think that will change just because he is moving to a different town. The Pacers are so much better off with him gone, good luck handling him Sacremento.
