Posted Saturday October 19, 2013, About: Jermichael Finley fires back at NFL over fine
Considering that Finley was hit hard in the head during the Bengals game, he has every right to complain.
Posted Tuesday July 16, 2013, About: Kershaw snubbed?: 'It hurts'
1) I'm pretty sure Clayton was joking.
2) Even if he wasn't, was it really a surprise that the Giant's manager didn't start the Dodger pitcher?

Not to mention that Gonzo did play once in LA.
Posted Monday July 08, 2013, About: The league's next $20M man
And if he never wins a thing, will that $20 million investment seem worth it? We see articles all the time about the worst contracts ever, and most of them deal with people who get hurt or end up accomplishing nothing.

No awards, no trophy, no records.....no money.
Posted Monday July 08, 2013, About: The league's next $20M man
No QB should get a $20 million contract without actually having won the Super Bowl.
Posted Sunday May 26, 2013, About: Matt Kemp: Outburst not directed at Don Mattingly
Meant that they didn't improve 2nd Base, 3rd Base, or bullpen over offseason. Mark Ellis is passable, but on the DL and nothing decent to back him up in the minors apparently.
Posted Sunday May 26, 2013, About: Matt Kemp: Outburst not directed at Don Mattingly
Kemp and Either hitting like crap isn't because the team spent money. Stop using that silly statement. Right now the Dodgers needs those two to hit better, something more out of 2nd, 3rd and Short, and a bullpen. Other than shortstop, they did nothing to improve themselves recently.
Posted Wednesday March 20, 2013, About: Rodgers could cost Pack $160M
Amazing how many Packer Haters have responded. Packers keep proving time and time again that they can find the best talent anywhere it can be found. All teams miss on some of their picks, as do the Packers. But 4 straight playoff years, 2 straight Division Champs, and one Super Bowl would be something just about any team would pay out their rear-ends to have. Some HAVE paid more than that and not reached it.
Posted Tuesday March 05, 2013, About: L.A. NFL plan on life support
The problem was Los Angeles committing to AEG, when another developer had already spent years getting a plan together that had the potential to work. All LA wanted to do was follow the money, thinking AEG's billions would mean more for the city. Instead, not it is getting nothing.
Posted Wednesday November 14, 2012, About: Did Kupchak bail on Phil?
He didn't ask for anything more than he implied he wanted when he left. The only realy difference was an issue about road game traveling. The Lakers contacted him knowing he was going to be expensive to get, so they must have been mostly willing to do so.

As for "they couldn't wait", they obviously could, as the new coach isn't even with the team yet. He can't even get on a plane!
Posted Wednesday November 14, 2012, About: Did Kupchak bail on Phil?
Kupchak, when Phil says "wait until Monday", you don't go hiring someone before then. You were obviously not in that much of a rush, as D'Antoni won't even be able to be with the team for several days yet. So why hurry into a coaching decision?
Posted Wednesday June 20, 2012, About: Defiant Buss fires back at Lakers icons
The Lakers haven't really been the same since Jerry handed the reins to Jim. The Buss's have been a fixture in LA for a long time, and need to remember that the history and the championships are what bring fans to the game. All you need to do is look back about 15-20 years post-Magic and pre-Shaq/Kobe/Phil to see a Lakers team that wasn't built to win championships.
Posted Wednesday May 23, 2012, About: Coyotes goaltender wants Brown out ... forever
Sure, suspend Brown, after you suspend all those guys who kept horribly boarding the Kings' players during game 3. Oh wait, they didn't do it then. Stop crying Coyotes. You got outplayed by a better team.
Posted Monday April 16, 2012, About: Why the Dodgers won't spend huge
Everyone gets to play the Padres and Pirates. Beating them doesn't make the Dodgers a weak team. You are correct that they haven't proven they are legit quite yet, but this was a team that, despite being in the doldrums last year, still finished with a winning record. If Capuano can get several decent starts in, I don't believe there will be many problems competing for the division.
Posted Monday April 16, 2012, About: Why the Dodgers won't spend huge
I don't think they could've matched Detroit even if they weren't a mess last year. L.A was the highest bidder until Detroit made their unbelievable offer. Though, compared to how Loney is once again starting the year, he would've definitely made a big difference.
Posted Sunday February 12, 2012, About: Driver willing to take pay cut for Packers
I think you probably just don't like Donald Driver. I've been in GB for several years now, and haven't heard once of him holding out. I'll look into it, but I know he was quick last season to make a contract with the team and this year is willing to take a cut for one more year. And considering that of A-Rod's 45 TD passes, only one receiver had more than 10, I wouldn't say he had a horrible season. He wasn't thrown to nearly as much because he has slowed down. But he did contribute, and showed in that playoff loss that sometimes he can still be the best receiver on the field.
Posted Thursday February 02, 2012, About: Pack can't afford to franchise Flynn
While he was never the best catcher, we cannot use last season as the basis for determining whether to keep him. It is known that players who mess up their knees like he did last season do not perform very well the next season, mostly from being afraid of getting hit and re-injuring the knee. The real problem is whether you give a long-term contract to Finley, not whether you keep him. If you think he will get back to form next year, you sign him long term. If you aren't sure, you franchise him and make him prove he's back.
Posted Thursday February 02, 2012, About: Pack can't afford to franchise Flynn
People, Flynn has played in more than two games (not even counting preseason). He's started two games. And before you all wonder why people would want him off those two starts, you have to understand that teams perform scouting all the time, and any time he is watchable he probably was being watched. Is he a great QB? Probably not. But he may still be upgrade for some teams that only need a decent QB to get over the hump.
Posted Monday November 14, 2011, About: Economist: $1B realistic for Dodgers
Do not confuse a baseball franchise with a corporation. The owner is the only person responsible for financial matters. He can hire people to assist with it, but in the end, he is responsible for the decisions just like he is responsible for paying his employees (including players).
Posted Monday November 14, 2011, About: Economist: $1B realistic for Dodgers
The Dodgers themselves have no debt. Frank McCourt is the person with debt. When he sells the team, it will be to pay off his debts, unless the selling contract includes taking over those debts.
Posted Sunday October 30, 2011, About: Kiffin livid with officials in Stanford loss
Considering they blew an obvious, open holding call a play or two before on a big gain, Lane should be happy there was even a chance to complain about the clock.
