Owens leaves after verbal spat with Reid

nice wig oliver, i need one in blue and silver. lluca put that macho east coast bull shit to the side and see the big picture. Terrell Owens is the best receiver right now. He can make or break a team. The Eagles could not have gone to the Super Bowl without him. He is not getting paid like the best in the NFL. This is a business before it's a sport, unfortunately, and the man deserves to be paid whatever he wants. Andy Reid is at fault. His ego is as big as his ass.

A message from God

Honestly? The after-game huddle of "religious" (meaning evangelical Christian) players after a game strikes me as a pompous, self-serving, lookit-how-holy-I-am display. What's prayer, after all? It's communication between a person and God, it's not performance art. I don't think the prayer circle is showing off in any way. God is about fellowship and when else are these players, from opposite teams, going to be able to be aroundeach other like that? Prayer is misused all the time but I don't think any of us can sit here and say someone is showing off by praying, showing off to who?

The beginning of the end, my friends

I just want ESPN to get rid of the jackasses they have on Sunday night. I'm tired of Paul Maguire thinking every play is "the greatest play I've ever seen!". I'm tired of Theissman thinking he knows everything and I don't even know why Mike Patrick is there. He can't get a word in between the other two egomaniacs. So there.

The reason it's moving to ESPN is because MNF with ABC has been losing money for several years now. Moving it to ESPN keeps MNF under Disney's umbrella without forking out the dough a network requires. In broadcasting it's a business before it's a sport For those of you dissing cable/sattelite get with it man. It's 2005 the networks are scrambling your minds.

Terry Bowden's NCAA top 16 predictions

I agree with rcade. When is someone going to acknowledge that UNT has been undefeated in their conference for three years in a row. It's time to move up the Mean Green, especially if they want to get some decent recruiting going. Go Mean Green! I hope that OU romps Texas like they usually do. I hate the color orange.
