Yeah, Chad is going to change his name to simply "Quatre".

French for the number 4 and equal to the number of catches he's had in his first 5 games in the CFL.

Bennett is a young big who, like all talented young bigs of current generation, spend a year in college and come into the NBA completely unprepared. Don't count him out yet, he has size and athleticism. His position takes a lot longer to master than others.

Morrison played 3 years in college and posted gaudy numbers in a bad conference inflating his value. Non-athletic skinny guys who can do nothing else but shoot are a bad gamble.

Compare him to Drew Brees' first 3 year regular season totals

Drew Brees didn't win a playoff game until his 6th season in the NFL. Dalton is entering his 4th. Dalton is a completely different QB than Brees but don't write him off yet.

Tigers and Orioles know this is their best chance for success. Sox have entered the rebuilding process, Yankees have to deal with the Jeter fair well tour then shed a bunch of older talent somehow next year, and the normally steady Rays have hit a blip. American League is up for grabs for the first time in a decade.

To me, this greatly ramps UP the pressure on you to perform as the Head Coach

Hope the Lakers plan on giving Scott a fair chance. No way the Lakers are competitive until they rid themselves of much of their aging overpaid roster.

Why did you go?

My kid and a friend were going and I had to drive them. Our stadium is built in an area that takes about an hour to get in and out of so simply dropping them off wasn't an option. Being that there were lots of tickets unsold they were being blown out for $18 plus fees and I figured it was the best bet; I also have a wide ranging taste in music and enjoy most any live performance.

Having just witnessed a Beyonce Jay-Z "concert" last night I say amen to the FUNK reunion.

Pretty good gig those 2 have getting folks to shell out money to watch them perform karaoke (concert implies music, music implies musicians in my books).

Come to think of it the cutoff jean shorts and jack-shirts were out in full force and low quality tattoos particularly on the back of the neck are clearly also in vogue. Personal attire was greatly overshadowed by 40 "songs" with every single chorus containing the words "slap" "motherfucking" "bitch" "money" "shit" "crack" "murder" "hoes" arranged ?creatively.

Watching the CFL game last night and thinking the Eskimos are a championship caliber team with only 2 weaknesses: head coaching and special teams play.

A called fake punt end-around on 3rd and 9 from your own 6 yard line with 50 seconds left in the half? That kind of shit has only ever worked in video games.

Are you suggesting that political concerns will trump the desire to play in the World Cup for some players?

Personal safety concerns . I suppose these do evolve from the current political mess.

Do players professional teams have the right to prohibit a player from World Cup competition?

He is leaving international competition at the top of his game. Also the first of many who will express no intention to participate in Russia.
