Posted Tuesday April 15, 2014, About: Saban never did respond to Town's letter
As article reads, this appears to be the only contact, via email. If he would have called, it's likely he would have said that he did so.

Now, as another post mentions, the writer of the article may not be Saban's biggest fan, so he could have left that out of the story to make Saban look bad. But my comments are based solely on what's written in the article and taken at face value.

Not defending Saban at all for any of his actions over his career. It has nothing to do with Saban and everything to do with this kid and in the bigger picture, society today.

If the kid did this to any coach at any level it would not be appropriate. If you want to change your mind, that's fine, but be man enough to pick up the phone and tell the guy who spent the time and effort recruiting you that you've changed your mind and are going elsewhere. At that point, Saban or anyone else would probably be disappointed, but would have also wished him the best. Saban, nor any other coach, owes a kid nothing for just sending an email like this.

In my opinion, I think it was classless and cowardly to inform Saban via email. Some things you can do via text and or email, but something like this should have been handled man to man via a phone call.

I'm all for technology, but there are some things that just should be done with actual human contact.

I'm still stick on the fact he only makes $400k.

On humorous side note, I as in Happy Valley over the weekend and the PSU merchandise stores have O'Brien's Lions t-shirts on clearance for $2.00

Posted Tuesday January 28, 2014, About: Vikings submitting bid for Super Bowl LII
The SB should rotate between Florida (rotate venues there), New Orleans, Pasadena and Jerry's World.

I've always wanted to go to a SB, but even when the Steelers were in it in Detroit and only a 5 hour drive away, there was no way I was going to Detroit in February. Then again, I wouldn't go to Detroit in June either.
Posted Tuesday January 21, 2014, About: Colin Kaepernick takes blame for 49ers' loss
Just don't think he's an elite QB and it's because of his passing and inability to progress thru his reads. His legs get him out of a lot of trouble and also hide a lot of flaws.He's in love with Crabtree and forces things. I'll bet if you look at the entire play, you'll see Boldin coming open either in the seam or across the middle and if not, then that's Roman's fault for not setting it up that way. Crabtree was doubled and I'd bet Vernon Davis was doubled as well, so you have to look for Boldin. They picked him up for exactly that situation.

Mock Manning all you want, but the guy studies and knows what the match ups are when the ball is snapped. Kaepernick always seems rushed and flustered if his first option isn't available.
Posted Thursday January 16, 2014, About: Rooney wants Polamalu retiring in Pittsburgh
Why, because they went 4-2 in the division just like the Bungles did? You're an idiot.
Posted Thursday January 09, 2014, About: The first NT off the 2014 draft board
Not sure where he's projected to go, but it would be nice if he lasted until #15 so the Steelers could grab him.
Posted Monday December 09, 2013, About: Honey Badger bawling after injury
Tough break for someone trying to turn his life around and he was having a really good year.
Posted Monday December 09, 2013, About: Ward chose to target Gronk low
Get used to it folks. This is what defenses are forced to do now since Goodell has tightened the screws on what is legal and what is not.
Posted Thursday November 14, 2013, About: Vernon Davis says his concussion is mild
his girlfriend is only mildly pregnant too
Posted Thursday November 14, 2013, About: Cutler ... expendable?
It's more than just Cutler though. Don't sign him and then you have a <more> disgruntled diva receiver on your hands too, which you'll have to get rid of like everyone else did. And that will lead to having Forte's brains beat out again.
Posted Thursday October 10, 2013, About: The league's weakest arm? Manning's
Arm strength has nothing to do with the ball fluttering out of his hand, it's his release.
Posted Wednesday September 25, 2013, About: Pirates will do 'everything in our power' keep Burnett
He likes it in Pittsburgh because there is no pressure and no expectations.

He's already said that if he does play next year, it will only be in Pittsburgh.
Posted Thursday May 23, 2013, About: Roger Goodell says London could host more games
It's not fair to the players or the fans....but when has that ever stopped Goodell.
Posted Thursday May 23, 2013, About: Troy Polamalu alters rehab to stay healthy
He's an odd dude with an equally odd training routine. I think he was completely embarrassed by his play and injury last year. We'll see if this makes a difference. They certainly need him to be his old self and stay healthy.
Way to ruin a good thing Bettman. You're a toad.
