Posted Thursday April 10, 2014, About: Another blow to keeping Harbaugh
Oh yeah... Jerry and Jim; they would get along so well. At least Jim wouldn't have his face rubbed in it by Pete 2 or 3 times a year.

Jim hasn't been smiling lately as much as hhe did after the "What's your Deal?" Game between Stanford and USC, but Pete has!

Maybe CK knows more than we do? Yeah, he can play. So could Mr. Hernandez. Not comparing the two, but gang affiliations, throwing the Crips sign in a game, there might be more than we know.

Is he worth taking a chance on? Yeah, unless there's stuff going on that we aren't privy too. But I can't fault Kelly for getting rid of someone if he feels they are a liability to 'team'.
Posted Monday March 31, 2014, About: Idzik didn't want DeSean
Picking up DeSeans buddy Marshawn Lynch worked well for Seattle and he had the same kind of rep. Maybe they could extend a little love to DeSean too, maybe Marshawn could be a calming factor...

Just saying...
Posted Monday March 31, 2014, About: Lakers have a dilemma with D'Antoni
Heck, an article on March 13, uh, less than a month ago, states "but Lakers legend and injured star guard make final pleas for L.A. to bring Jackson back." That would be Magic and Kobe (and Phil).

If he still wants Phil back how much does that speak about his D'Antoni love? I mean, they made public pleas for goodness sake. Yes, it was for a front office role, but you really think he's gonna keep D'Antoni around? not hardly...

But... coach isn't the REAL prob, Buss is.
Posted Monday March 31, 2014, About: Lakers have a dilemma with D'Antoni
As a LTLF I say blow it the fffffffffffffffffffffffffff up.

Start with the new Buss, 'cause he sure as heck ain't the same as the old Buss. And as a Laker fan I love Kobe, but what the HHHHHHHHHHH were they thinking giving him a contract like that? Gonna handcuff them awhle far as the cap goes. Why not go aead and give KAJ a contract too, at least he ain't injured.

But, like I said, start with the Buss. Jeanie shoulda got the reins when Pops died, Jimmy-Boy makes Tommy Boy look like a Rhodes scholar.
Posted Monday March 31, 2014, About: Vikings reportedly prepared to pass on Teddy Bridgewater
The NFL are very Trendy; they see KP mke it to the SB one year and Russel Wison win it the next and alla sudden everyone has to have a spread QB that can run, andis willing to pay more than he's worth (in draft position).

I have been wondering to myself just how much Randall Cunningham wuld be worth in todays market. He certainly had all the goods: bigcould run and jump like a gazelle, had a rocket arm. and culd punt the ball 90 yards. Sure fire #1 pick. Back then? 2nd round 37th overall.
Posted Monday March 31, 2014, About: Vikings reportedly prepared to pass on Teddy Bridgewater
Yeah, Vicks so gr8 at winning now... till he goes down midway thru the season and some unknown takes over and starts winning games.

That's what the Vikes should do, go after Vick! We all know how good the Jets are at picking QB's and they basically traded Sanchez for him, maybe now they'll consider another trade.

Truth and RUMORS! With little of the former and a great deal of the latter; not above making something up and calling it Rumor, or letting it leak, let some rag go with it (PPP), then print it and go with it as 'rumor'.

They could work for CNN...Oh wait, they do!
Posted Monday March 31, 2014, About: New twist to Jerry Jones-Jimmy Johnson divorce
I'll bet having an egomaniac working FOR you ain't so hot either.

But when the boss AND the employee are both wanting the world to know how great they are it certainly won't last.
Posted Monday March 31, 2014, About: New twist to Jerry Jones-Jimmy Johnson divorce
I would agree with almost all of this, the exception being Johnsons ability to coach. H won championships at Miami and at Dalllas, CFB and NFL.

Part of being a good coach IS talent eval, and maybe the most important part. Not all coaches can take great talent and go all the way (how often does the team in the NFL with the most talent, or the best regular season, win the SB?).

The teams he put together excelled in ever phase, but especially the trenches (sure eveyone point to the triplets but those guys up front opened the holes and gave Troy time, they were amongthe best OL's ever).

JMO... (BTW, totally agree n the Herschell Walker trade, but they made the most of those picks).
Posted Wednesday March 26, 2014, About: L.A. becomes big threat for Bills fans
Seriously? The NFL has changed since '80? ;-)

I was thinking more along the lines of what teams the peeps of LA would embrace, and I may be way out of touch with it I admit.

But I really fail to understand what is meant by "None of these facts playout any longer", but it's all good. I must admit I would love to see the Rams in LA, even if I don't live there any longer.

But also, I think that in this age being in a big time media centr (LA, NY, DFW, Chicago, etc) isn't quite what it once was. Atheletes can get big time sponsoship contracts in little cities, TV isn't just about big towns now, etc. Those kinds of considerations have become less important in the internet age. Yes, for the owner putting butts in the seats is important,but not as much as getting your brand out there on TV.
Posted Wednesday March 26, 2014, About: L.A. becomes big threat for Bills fans
I agree that is the most likely, if any team does move in. I think also that Angelinos would be more likely to get ahold of "Raidermania" than just about any other team 'cept maybe the Rams, and even them all the old skoolers like me are fading fast.

Don't know that I'm right, but there aren't many other teams I could see LA-LA Land getting on-board with...

Ok, if that's proof, then I guess Katrina was proof that either God or George Bush (depending on who you listen too) had proof that NawLeans was the American version of Sodom and Gomorrah...

And the Antitesis? The glove not fitting is proof that OJ had nothing to do with murder... And why in the heck did they fire sweatervest... he wasn't that guilty cause tOSU only got a fraction of the penalty USC did.

Yes, Virginia, punishment IS proof of a crime. Just ask Jesus...

I wasw at CSULB when the NCAA started the chase, and I love the guy. One of a very few who had the backbone to stand against the NCAA, and he paid.

Why? He wrote an article in '72 that was critical of the NCAA. Also he broke the rules by starting more than a cpl of black players and recruited kids from JC's and also area's where noone else dared recruit. The NCAA had such a thing they followed him his entire career, but he never backed down.

But, for the NCAA carma is coming fast...
Posted Friday February 28, 2014, About: Carroll hammers NCAA in USC return
You're saying they weren't?

For every infraction you can point at, I can point at ten that are worse at any number of schools including tOSU and Miami, cases where coaches actualy were proven to lie and cover up, players that received various gratuities from actual boosters and peeps connected with the school, not just wanna be agents that cared for nothing but themselves.

The facts surrounding several cases speak for themselves for anyone who actually cares to look with an open mind, that is; instead of just believing what is most convenient, the "word on the street".

Kinda like Saban leaving LSU, or the Mad Hatter leaving Okie State, or Urban leaving Utah, or etc etc.

As a USC fan I harbor no ill will for PC. He did wonders for the program and when it was time he left. Some say that "when it was time" was indicated by the NCAA investigation, I choose to think it was the position wasn't much fun anymore (he had just suffered his worst season since 2001) and got the first REAL offer from the NFL, one where he had the control he wanted.

BUT, thief in the night could fit a whole buncha coaches. And remember this: he still runs organizations in LA that help kids in gang infested South Central. He doesn't have to, but he does. No, he's not as big a downer as Saban or Belichek or either Harbaugh brother, not as big an A whole. So he couldn't be as good a coach, right?

Yeah, guess you shoulda been on the committee sitting next to Paul Dee. Got about the same kind of evidence.

"They ran a crooked program" what evidence? "WTH have you been, everybody knows." Who is everybody and what do they know? "Are you so stupid that you don't know who everybody is and what crooked means? They pay their players just like they paid Reggie Bush." They didn't pay Reggie Bush, that was all a deal between Bush and Loyd Lake, a known felon. "Of course they paid Bush, everyone knows, that'sd why they got punished so harshly, shoulda got the death penalty."

And on and on it goes, completely devoid of logic or facts. And for the common hater? Facts matter little, appearance and opinion are everything.

Carry on, keep that head buried, till some Lloyd Lake like creature comes up behind YOU...

No, the NCAA goes after anyone who defies them, anybody they get a 'woody' for.

Just look at Tark the Shark. It was all Basketball, but they chased him from Long Beach State to UNLV to (after a year at San Antonio) Fresno State.

Why? Because while at CSULB he wrote a piece in the LB Press Telegram that was calling out the NCAA, Negative about their willy nilly way of punishing and such, enough so that the column provoked a letter from Warren S. Brown, former assistant executive director of the NCAA, to James T. (Jess) Hill of the Pacific Coast Athletic Association. Also,
shortly after it was written, Tarkanian became a subject of the official investigation of Long Beach State by the NCAA, which did not leave him alone when he went to Las Vegas.

Pete C ticked off the NCAA, THEN WOULDN'T COOPERATE IN THEIR WITCH HUNT. Simple as that. One player, no coaches (other than vague accusations), and a ex felon wanna be agent. That merits the worst penalties since the SMU death penalty? And scathing comments coming from the crookedest crook of them all, Paul Dee.

Yes, it's all about ticking off the man.
Posted Friday February 14, 2014, About: Coaches line up to blast NCAA rule
Yet in the Az State Wisconsin game everyone was crying foul 'cause it tokk the officials too long to spot the ball, yet Wisconsin ended the play at 14 seconds, and the official spotted the ball at 5 seconds; 9 seconds yet even announcers were saying it took too long. If the end of a game, even with confusion, merits faster action by officials, then so should style of play, IMO.

Remember, this is about 'safety', not what is or isn't good football. Notice how all the rule changes lately are couched in safety terms, yet really have not much evidence to back it up? i.e. the PAC rule to lessen the number of full contact practices; well, if you aren't practicing hits then chances are in a game at full speed you will do it incorrectly and INCREASE the chance of being injured.

I realize there's data and law suits that make some rule change necessary, but much of it is just stuff that borrows on safety terminology 'cause it's what flies right now.
