Why no Uve Blob? Dennis Johnson certainly wasn't a prize with that reddish hair and freckles either.

Hey what about Wade Boggs? He hit 24 homers in 87. Does that mean he was juicing and should we remove him from the hall before it's official this july? Simply put there is no formula to judge what effect the steriods had on a given players game. Lets face it McGwire was a big kid when he came into the league in 87 and I don't believe those forty nine homers were a fluke. The seventy might be by-product of chemical engineering but what criteria can be put in place to determine hall elegibiltiy?

now, if only they can expose mike holmgren, the seahawks might have a chance to win.

Oh he's a first-ballot hall of famer, that's not even a question. Now I've heard it all... Karl certainly wasn't an engaging personality when dealing with the media, or with fellow players(see elbows). Nonetheless, he will get into the hall on a unanimous vote. Now you've heard it all justgary.

I've disliked Karl Malone for years and years but recently when he went to the lakers, I found some respect for him. Could have made more $$ elsewhere but chose the opportunity to win the title and when father time came calling knew when to bow out. I believe he could still play today as he keeps himself in great shape. So for all you naysayers out there give him some credit for not hanging on just for records and instead respect a guy who played hard, worked hard, and respected the game.

just gary it seems you have a hard on for Emmitt. Not saying he wasn't one of the greats but be honest w/yourself. On sunday who would you rather watch. Emmitt for three yards and a cloud of dust or Barry and a forty yard misdirection three yard gain. Also in reference to Brown's jockstrap, have you seen the power runs this man put together. He could have played in this league today with his skills and power and intelligence. Not sure Emmitt scared the shit out of anyone like Brown or even Payton for that matter. Mi encanta!

you make a good point grum.

Seems that everyone is focused on Barry vs. Emmitt. Remember a guy by the name Jim Brown? Not sure Emmitt could carry this guys jock strap around. Played only ten years and left on top. His career stats are pretty damn good and the first years of his career he fueded somewhat with his coach or they'd probably be better. Just a thought.

holy shit! an angry gary coleman. That's funny. New logo......Same result. Get an owner other than Bidwell. Now that would be a fresh start.

never happened to me personally. Just the simple phenomenon of phantom pain. You see some blooper of a guy getting his nits crushed and it sends a shiver down to your own scrotum. capisce.

that may be the best and worst story i've ever heard about high school football. My crotch hurts just reading that! Hope I never piss you off somewhere.

You know ,I said this earlier, if you don't like the salary don't go. Seriously, every organization has some player grossly overpaid for what he does. i was unhappy with the shit Seattle put on the field last year and after opening day I didn't go. Point is I can talk shit if I want to! Everyone is up in arms over this contract and how they think it's skewing salaries. Remember A-rod, Tom Hicks. That screwed up more than this one year reward for a cy-young season. Also who would you rather have? Clemens or Pedro? No lo contendre!

Lets see.....the Redsox made it clear they didn't want Clemens, or Wade Boggs for that matter. I'm sure they were very hurt when they both went to the Yankees and won world championships. And if you think Clemens is greedy have you already forgotten what he was paid last year? I live in Seattle and would have been ecstatic to have had Clemens, let alone paid him five mill plus incentives. Only we paid another forty something pitcher named Moyer a little more, only to get a six and 11 pitcher. case closed. peace

You know that in terms of baseball salary Clemens was a f---ing bargain last year. Five mill plus incentives. If you think eighteen is just two much spread that out over last year and this next season and you'll see that it's fair market value. Anyone who doesn"t like what these guys get paid either don't watch, or better yet don't go to the games. Having said that I have no problem with a guy who went 18-4, was near the top in era, and recorded two hundred strikeouts, and was one win away from yet another world series, where I'm sure the Astros couldn't have done any worse than the Cardinals. Oh by the way did he win his seventh cy-young last year?
