Posted Thursday April 03, 2014, About: Execs want to reinvent the Devils
People hear "arena in Newark" and they don't want to go.

And mass transit means nothing. Devils games aren't getting filled w/ train and bus riders from north Jersey. The seats are getting filled w/ turnpike driving middle class.
Posted Friday March 28, 2014, About: Wang putting the Isles on the block
Part of the Isles deal with playing at the Barclay center is that Prokohov's people were gonna run the team. I would figure he is a lock to buy them. The politicians of Long Island kept the team bad and cost them the team.

Wang needed a team to try and get his real estate deals done, and it was a cycle of negotiate for 2-3 years, then an election cycle and new crooks in office nuked the deals he cut so they had to start from scratch. Same thing happened w/ Yankees and Mets between the Guiliani & Bloomberg administrations.
Posted Thursday March 27, 2014, About: Mike Wallace-for-DeSean deal discussed
Mike Wallace is Chad Johnson v2.0. Dude can't do anything but run go routes all day. When you make a move for a player, you gotta look at tape, not stats.
Posted Monday March 24, 2014, About: Woody says Jets want DeSean
Jets look to make noise on the back page of papers, not the win column. I wish I was a Giants fan.

Gary Sheffield?
Posted Wednesday March 19, 2014, About: Report: Jets GM John Idzik draws in-house criticism
Just re-sign Cro on a 2-3yr deal. If Idzik didn't screw up last year's draft, then Millner will be their #1 CB anyway.
Posted Tuesday March 04, 2014, About: Contract problems loom for Peyton
Broncos need to get a middle linebacker, cause Miller is one more hot test from being gone for a year, no?
Posted Sunday March 02, 2014, About: Teams asking Bucs about Darrelle Revis
You don't pay Revis all that money, then have him play zone. You have him line up against the other team's top WR, and have him take that guy out of the game. It is similar to the edge rusher, who pays attention to nothing besides putting the QB on his butt. You let him do his thing, and you game plan for a 10 on 10.
Posted Thursday February 20, 2014, About: Where are the Cubs' profits going?
After 100years of losing, what is another 2-3, while prospects develop.
Posted Wednesday February 19, 2014, About: The worst player in Angels history?
Al and Jerry both have rings.
Posted Wednesday February 19, 2014, About: Strasburg 'messing with' a new pitch
Joba didn't get an astronomical contract out of the draft. Strasburg is in make or break time.
Posted Saturday February 15, 2014, About: Jeter's big-ticket replacement
I'm a Yankee fan. The fact that Jeter is retiring doesn't bother me. It was inevitable and I've been a fan since long before the late 90's - 2000's run of success. What bothers me is there won't be an everyday position player who is a homegrown Yankee. Gardner as the 4th outfielder is closest. After that, who do you have who was born a Yankee? Nova and Robertson?

Not saying they should have kept Cano at that price though.
Posted Wednesday January 15, 2014, About: Will A-Rod name names?
A-Roid has only ever cared about himself. If I was an MLB player who ever confided anything in him, from PEDs to road skeezer stories, I would be nervous.
Posted Saturday January 11, 2014, About: Rams prepared for anything with No. 2 pick
Allen is a free agent, no? Isn't that why there was trade talk about him last season?
Posted Sunday January 05, 2014, About: Andruw Jones reportedly receiving MLB interest
He is like the only guy ever to do contract year juice and not land a huge deal.
Posted Thursday January 02, 2014, About: Bridgewater headed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation
I wonder if he gets to pick between Rihanna or Rita Ora as his bonus to sign w/ JZ.
Posted Wednesday December 25, 2013, About: Gang Green's next head coach?
Rex should have been fired after last year. Now that the team is on an uptick, it is stupid to fire him. Especially when he potentially goes .500 with an over matched rookie QB and no offensive skill position players who could start for another team.
Posted Monday December 02, 2013, About: Shumpert moves closer to the door
No NBA team will ever win a championship with Melo as the centerpiece. Dolan deserves Melo, just like he deserved Isaiah and Starbury. Poor Knicks fans don't deserve them.
My biggest fear is they sign him to a huge and long deal, then he gets even lazier.

Cano isn't a transcendent player who is going to draw casual eyeballs to the game and therefore ratings to the YES Network. He is not a "face of the franchise" type, he is not capable of being the #1 guy on the team. I'd tell Jay-Z 6yrs/160, and in 24 hrs it is 6yrs/150.
Not when he's tappin Jay-Z's leftovers.
Posted Wednesday November 27, 2013, About: McNabb calls out scapegoating Shanahan
D-Mac will never, EVER say anything bad about Mistah Andy.

Shanny aint gonna throw his son under the bus for a bad offense, so the QB is next in line. Shanny gonna be out, and the new coach will have 2 seasons to figure out RG3 or Cousins. I think by this time next year Cousins will be the starter in DC. RG3 can't keep defenses guessing with that busted wheel.
