Does anyone here realize what's actually going on in this situation. In a country full of overwhelming problems, our federal government has decided to throw it force behind STERIOD INVESTIGATIONS?? The more this is reported in the sports media and even more so in the traditional media, the heats comes off the people in power.Before i'm accused of making a crazy left wing argument, people on both sides are responsible. This country is in the tank and headlines include PRO SPORTS STEROIDS SCANDLE are you freaking kidding me. I know that in the sports media this is a story, I really wish they would chill out on it a little so people could breath and realize this is SO DAMN TRIVIAL I CANNOT BELIEVE IT.

I like Davis. If Houston would pass on Reggie Bush, why trade for Brown? I think he'd run for about 1800 yards in Denver. Just a thought.

I thoght Elizabeth was the Macho Man's old lady back then. He also played minor league baseball if I'm not mistaken.(The Macho Man not Jake the Snake)

modern culture dictates in this situation, a player with a national following wants to donate profits from his jersey sales. strict dogmatic evaluation of out of date rules dictate he cannot do it in the most effective way possible. please show me the up-side of that.

As for the problems with the refs, why don't college refs have this problem. It really is the no fun league. These damn executives are a bunch of old, white men who do not have the faintest clue about modern culture.(By the way I'm a white guy, just not old yet. I'll still be cool for at least five more min.)

No offense Snikastyle, but are you insane??? Morrison #1 overall??? The kid was a great college player, and will probably be a solid pro. (I'm thinking Keith Van Horn) However he is nowhere near athletic enough to spend a #1 overall pick on. Dickie V and Billy Packer lied to you; Morrison is not the second coming of Larry Bird.

Huge Detroit fan here. Lebron however is the next step in the evolution of great basketball players. (glad Detroit won but have even more respect for Lebron than I did before the playoffs, the kid can play!!!)

One of the stranger things I've seen on a ballfield, but by no means the strangest. From watching the play and hearing Barret's comments in the post game, along with his deamenor, my judgement on this one is that Barret had a total brainfart. A.J. made a solid, clean yet physical play. Barret wigged out. It happens. I actually don't mind a donney-brook in my hardball every now and again. (Almost reminds me of hockey)

This is another example of the wussifacation of this country. People now seem to think that throwing a punch is some kind of earth shattering event. I have played hoops at playgrounds all over my city, I have been hit with punches and thrown them myself; amazingly enough the world didn't end and no one needed to call the authorities. For "fans" of competition who are so off put by violence, take my advice and become a fan of competitive checkers.

Regarding Johnson's obligations, you might want to check out Nash v. Mulle. The case is an interesting read and if I'm correct Johnson may be getting off lightly. (Sorry, cannot find a link, but the case exsists. In fact I just finished reading it for an exam next week. If someone can find a link that would be great.)

Thank You Wingnut4life!!!!! Go Blue!!! The Heisman pose in the end zone is the coolest thing I've ever seen. Close second: Howard's grab in the corner of the end zone against Notre Dame, on forth down and one!!! That play marked the birth of the modern style pro offense Michigan has today. Go Blue!!!

It's not that GW won't make it, but that whomever wins the A10 tourney will get a bid from a bubble team.

O.K. here is a wild idea. Since at the time most people are discussing baseball didn't have a steriod policy, Bud Selig himself could have shot up Barry Bonds with roids and it wouldn't matter as far as the record book goes. And people that want to say steroids were ILLEGAL, has anyone else ever had records stripped for breaking LAWS that were not against the rules of baseball?

If there is no rule against it, it is not cheating!!!!!!!!!!!!! If somebody wants to pursue this through the legal system that is another matter. Anyone wanting to change the record book had better stop and look up the defininition of cheating.

Pokey will catch on somewhere!!! Any one giving him a rough time over this should be a little more compasionate. The Marlins did what they felt they needed to do, and I'm not faulting them. However sometimes people hit rough spots, and guess what : that's life. Given what he's been through cut the guy a break. THE MAN FIELDS A SHORT HOP AND MOVES TO HIS LEFT WITH GRACE EVERY INFIELDER ON EARTH WOULD GIVE THEIR FIRST BORN FOR!!!!
