Posted Thursday January 30, 2014, About: Sherman daring Manning to throw his way
Here is Sherman's quote:

"Whoever lines up on the left. Whoever lines up on my side is who I'll match up with," and "That's all it really comes down to."

Where does the "journalist" get "daring Manning to throw his way" out of that?

I can see the similarities- except the Patriots whine a lot more when they lose.
Posted Wednesday January 15, 2014, About: Ryan's hair holding him back
Thanks for the laugh.

Put a uniform and cap on him and I think you hit the nail on the head.
Posted Wednesday December 18, 2013, About: Jerry thinks it's crazy to hire a GM
Note to JJ-

The difference is an actual GM is accountable for mistakes and bad judgment. The fear of termination would motivate them to succeed.

You, on the other hand, don't hold yourself accountable in any measurable way and you are apparently incapable of learning from your mistakes.

Convince yourself it's the same thing all you want, but it's not. And while you are clearly a shrewd and successful businessman, your GM skills are severely lacking.
His mom must be proud.

I think Denver beat Dallas.

Good example!

Incognito doesn't seem to have a soul.
Posted Tuesday November 05, 2013, About: No surprise for ex-Incognito teammate
I don't get why Incognito is such a racist.

Doesn't he realize his last name is hispanic?

I'll take Briles at UT.

"Waahhh, coach lied!" Damn, go tell your mommy.

That's not a lie you whiny beeeatch.

It's called PR to make the team and you look better. Now, instead of looking professional, you come across as a whiny beeeatch.
Posted Tuesday September 24, 2013, About: Has the NFL solved Kaepernick?
I wish Kaepernick could figure out how to pronounce "fantasy" correctly (see commercials).

It sounds like he's saying "fancy football". Nobody wants to play fancy football!
Posted Monday September 23, 2013, About: Has the NFL solved Kaepernick?
Maybe if he focused on football instead of all the lousy commercials he might have improved in the offseason.

Oh, and does anyone else wish he could pronounce "fantasy"? It sounds like he's saying "fancy" football.

Who wants to play fancy football?
Posted Tuesday September 10, 2013, About: Playbook too big for Kaepernick?
I heard Kaepernick is actually quite smart.

He's no Vince Young, that's for sure!
Posted Tuesday August 13, 2013, About: Ryan takes a shot at Cowboys
1. He did not improve the defense and the numbers back that up.
2. There were a lot of injuries last year that could have affected #1.
3. How is that a "shot" at the Cowboys?

Drop the hyphen and just do Manzielohan. It flows much better.

Hopefully Joey will be on his best behavior tonight.

Clearly a ref should be watching the action- especially the guy with the ball.

But all I'm saying is if something obstructs the refs view or if it happens too fast for the ref to call a foul, I'd like to see them play on rather than having a phantom foul called based on Wade flying to the floor (which he seems to do on every drive) or Ginobili flailing backwards. If actual contact caused that, fine, call the foul- that's the right play. But if it's too close to call, play on!!! Quit giving super stars the benefit of the doubt.

This is someone people rarely talk about - but one reason LeBron's shooting percentage is so high is that he gets bailed out on misses A LOT. With a foul, they don't count as a miss.

He asked Tim Duncan to fight him! I prematurely object to him being allowed to ref this game.

LeFix is on.
Posted Tuesday June 18, 2013, About: LeBron lacking key champion component
This is a good point about the refs blowing the whistle based on a flopper's reaction.

If the refs watched the actual play and there was excessive contact- call an appropriate foul.

If the ref catches the tail end of the play and only sees the flopper's reaction, then they need to let em play on.

But I still think flopping should be penalized more harshly.

And whoever says LeBron doesn't flop is blind. He has an extensive flopfolio.

At least Birdman got a suspension, which hurt against the Pacers bigs.

The decision I didn't like was not suspending Wade for the flying karate Elbow to Stephenson's head.

There was no way that could ever be defended as anything but a dirty, retaliatory, non-basketball play.

What I'd really like to see is refs giving no leeway to known floppers. Say to those guys, you're not going to get a foul called on you unless you get mauled. Guys like Battier, Manu (sorry, I love the Spurs, but I'm not blind), etc., should have no credibility with refs.
