Just about every week you hear about another player who has been in an altercation or been accused of lewd behavior. Not just in Seattle, but Minnesota and even my beloved Chiefs have managed to make the papers this season. What is it that causes these circumstances. Some folks are quick to blame the players, and perhaps thats true. Then again has anyone thought that the public may relish the opportunity to take a swipe at these football players that America has made into celebrities. That we are jealous of their notoriety and when we see them out and about the results of our encounter make the news. The truth is probably a combination of such things. If you are thinking, as I know some are, that the players shouldn't be in the places they were in, think again. This isn't the army, they view football as a job and they unwind just like millions of other folks unwind.

Pink, green, blue, purple, red, or yellow. It is good for the game. Home lockerrooms are sacred places. They should be used in that manner. We get way to serious over issues that were never a part of the original concept and we promote our bad behavior in the hope it will change society to our personal way of thinking. Thats crap. Let people be people. History proves that most expression is harmless. Of course history suggests there is always people with their own agenda looking for a stage with lighting. I find this immensely humoristic.

Speaking of Buffalo's secondary, or whole defense for that matter. They are good.They are very close to dominant actually. I don't know how far they will go though. J.P. Losman doesn't seem to have much confidence. That certainly could change as the season progresses.

THIS JUST IN:::: Kansas City torched Seattle's secondary last night when the 1st team offense took the field. Marching down the field with inpunity right into the end zone. It was rumored that had Trent Green stayed in the game more than just his few minutes the Chiefs offense would of scared the whole league out of its wits. ( Trent Green left the game when he tripped over Willie Roaf's big foot.) Jonathan Quinn, who has been in camp for only 3 days was unremarkable. He played the rest of the game.

To klipp26. You got it right. Last night did you see Tomlinson being interviewed? He said what makes a player great is his heart. He's a real humble dude and a damn fine running back to say the least. He got it right, and you could hear his voice and just know that he meant every word he said. I thought it made T.O. look like an ass.

About T.O. The best thing that can be done about that guy is simply ignore him. write the jerk off. Football is a team game and nobody supercedes the whole, nobody. But give the frigging media a chance and they suck up to that guy like a bee to honey. Its pathetic. Its time we put these primodonna's away. Lets play football.

Concerning Hines Ward's Holdout. Contract negotiations are a tough call. As stated earlier when a player comes into the league he just wants to sign a contract so he can play and get needed money. He only has faith that he can play in the NFL. Nothing is proven. Later, after his success he has the right to want to restructure his contract. I say this because this league is founded upon the players ability to perform and without that performance there is no league. Owners seem to think they are extending a priveledge for players to perform in their league when the truth is that it is the owners responsibility to keep the wages as low as possible while fielding their best team to satisfy the spectator. who really pays the salaries.
