Posted Monday October 07, 2013, About: Clowney not committed to South Carolina?
Gotta love a coach making $5 mil off teenagers criticizing a kid who has no reason or motivation to play amateur football for not being totally into it.
Posted Sunday August 25, 2013, About: Andrew Bynum working hard, but not close to being ready
A guy who's seven feet tall should be able to lose 20 lbs in about a week.
Posted Monday August 19, 2013, About: Should Sens be punished for Daniel Alfredsson deal?
Isn't the problem with these contracts that players don't actually play in the final years with the aim of lowering the cap hit in prior years? Didn't he play out the entire contract? Regardless of intent, the Sens did not gain any advantage, and Alfredsson played for a measly one mil. Why should anyone be penalized?
Posted Wednesday June 05, 2013, About: Notre Dame's Kelly already linked to Lions
Kelly should really think about this. In the revolving door for NFL coaches, no Lion head coach has ever gotten another chance. It is a coaching grave yard.
Posted Tuesday May 21, 2013, About: Howard aired D'Antoni grievances with Lakers
Howard wants to be treated as a "leader"?
Posted Sunday May 05, 2013, About: Tim Tebow headed to ESPN or Fox?
Throw Tebow into the mix and the buzz becomes huge, the sizzle electric
Really? I couldn't imagine a duller personality. Maybe they can get Pat Boone to spice up the intro music!
Posted Tuesday February 05, 2013, About: A-Rod scared Yankees, MLB are out to get him
Not to mention that with over one hundred million dollars at stake, conspiracy is not that far-fetched a concept.
Posted Wednesday October 10, 2012, About: Zetterberg on KHL: 'They honor the contracts'
Sorry boys, I didn't realize this was an exclusive mutual stroking club for the repeat posters who are apparently all real he-men. Don't worry, I won't interrupt your little love fest again.
Posted Tuesday October 09, 2012, About: Zetterberg on KHL: 'They honor the contracts'
Harry, when your rant starts out with "Shut up", then progresses to "primadonna multi-millionaire" and "idiot Captain", it's a little late to be taking the high road, don't you think? Maybe you should try to read what Z actually said. He stated a couple of pretty obvious facts. You are apparently seething with anger. I bet it's because you would be an NHL star but for that knee injury.
Posted Tuesday October 09, 2012, About: Zetterberg on KHL: 'They honor the contracts'
Donny, if your idea of evisceration in a debate is to resort to name-calling, maybe you should ask your homeroom teacher if it's OK for you to be on the internet while in class. The owners depend upon stupid people to blame the players, and it's obviously working.
Posted Tuesday October 09, 2012, About: Zetterberg on KHL: 'They honor the contracts'
Go back to grade school and learn grammar, then try to make sense. The point is this is a LOCKOUT, not a strike. The players would all be in camp, but the owners have locked them out, because they say the cannot afford the contracts they offered. Then they continue to offer multi-year seven figure contracts. Does that somehow make sense to you? My problem is all the anger is directed at the players and not the owners.
Posted Tuesday October 09, 2012, About: Zetterberg on KHL: 'They honor the contracts'
Boy did this bring out the cavemen. Read the post, there is no whining. Z states a couple facts: Russians are not uncomfortable playing in Russia, and the NHL does not honor contracts. If you got hired for $10 per hour, then your employee said he's making more money than ever, but he is going to cut your pay to $7.50, would your reaction be "Great!"? If you're jealous of a player with a average career of 5 years trying to get paid what he can, why aren't you jealous of a billionaire who is making hundreds of times as much money, but claiming poverty? Sports is entertainment, and the players are not the only ones signing their contracts. It is unethical for the owners to offer a contract, then unilaterally change the conditions.
Posted Friday September 28, 2012, About: Lidstrom leaves little doubt
Borque won exactly zero Cups until he piggybacked onto an already great team. Lidstrom was the best player (ask Yzerman) on four champions. You Boston people are clueless homers.
Posted Wednesday September 26, 2012, About: Bell 'done talking' until 2014
I hope guys like Bell get on their knees and thank the union for guaranteed contracts on a nightly basis.
