"My name is Barry Bonds, and I'm a big whiny baby! I blame everybody else for my problems!" Go ahead, Barry, retire. Don't let the door hit your fat, steroid injected butt on the way out. The game will be better off without you.
It feels good to have some figures early, doesn't it? I managed to find most of the first group today. They are some of the best Star Wars figures ever, at least in the packaging. I haven't opened any yet. If they fall apart, my attitude will quickly change.
The Vikings are cursed until they win the Super Bowl, much like the Cubs and White Sox need a World Series trophy to lose that moniker. I agree about not liking Anderson. I never really cared for him. I didn't mind it when they used Berger as the kickoff specialist. Now they are wasting a roster spot. Maybe Eiling will pan out, maybe they draft Nugent. I would like a young kicker they can count on. I think the Tice thing was done by that slug Hovan to get back at his former coach. Moss may also be the culprit. I heard that one of the times he supposedly sold tickets was proven to be impossible. I think Raider fans will see the true Moss when Gannon or Collins can't get him the ball often enough. At this point, I like the deal. Draft one of the top WR with that 7 pick and things look even better.
I'm less angry at the Vikings for dumping Moss now that they actually went out and improved the defense. The additions of Pat Williams and Smoot have given the Vikes a shot at a middle of the road defense barring injuries. I'd like to see them add a Safety and another LB yet. They need a WR or two to offset the Moss loss also. A top 10 O and a middle ranked D will mean a few more wins next year IMO.
Red McCombs is a cheap SOB! He traded away his best player for three crapshoots. This franchise is always doing things the wrong way. The Raiders are jumping for joy. They robbed the Vikings. How does this trade make us better? It would have been worth it to include a DB and DE IMO, but this is a frickin joke. McCombs better sell the team and not come back into town ever. He probably did this to take a shot at us for not giving him a stadium. Forget about them using cap money to improve the D as long as Reda@@ owns the team. He is just about squeezing as much out of this team as he can. He's a leech. I can't wait until he no longer controls this team.
Yeah, I think there should be a change in union reps. It seemed to me like the players were unhappy with the way things were handled. It does look bad that they cancelled and then they say "Just Kidding" Bettman should also go away. He should have extended the deadline until this weekend. You know the owners wanted the playoffs. That's where they make the most money. I guess we'll see if the fans decide they care or not.
Things may not be over yet. ESPN is reporting that the owners and players have agreed on a $45 million cap. They are having more meetings tomorrow. The regular season will be shorter than the playoffs, but some NHL hockey will be better than nothing. Maybe they should have free games for a week to get the fans back.
