I apologize for doing this late and not having a poll. I was pretty buisy this week. However, a question to debate: Who will take the NFC West in '05? The Rams, The Seahawds, or the Cardinals. (The niners are in their division, but they have a snowball's chance in hell at winning it, no offense to their fans)

And let me put a plug in now, for all you football fans: get out there and become a youth or high school football official.

There is a chronic nationwide shortage of officials, especially at the youth level.

Officiating is a great way to give back to the game you love, to make a little money while getting into (or staying) in shape, and believe me, it's the best way to see the game.

I've officiated five years at the youth level, and two years of high school ball. I'm just sorry that it's taken me so many decades to find my true hobby in life.

Call you state high school association or youth league this week! Most officiating training classes start in June or July, so its not too late for this upcoming season.

Play, coach or ref! ReaganCowboy out...

If you believed you tag line there would be no NFL. Half of them would be dead or in jail. They are, with a few exceptions, a bunch of self centered, spoiled, rich punks who without the luck and yes talent, would be playing street ball and involved in the criminal justice system as inmates or in the shock trauma unit with multiple gsw's. If the NFL, without the greed that is pervasive, had their players stick to the rules that the rest of us attempt to follow, most would be in the aforementioned places in life.

Of the major professional sports, the NFL is relatively inoffensive. I just wish that the NBA would shut down for good.

The NFL is much better in this regard than it was 10 or 20 years ago. Now the exception are the self centered ones. I.e. the ones that make news. Plus, the NFL has the age limit which has helped them start with more majure players to begin with.

No. Just finished watching the Indy 500. Only the largest single sporting event in the great USA. Listen to the winners and how they mention EVERY one else before they even give themselves any credit for the win. Unlike the nfl players who do a dance after they make a not so special tackle. Thats what they get paid to do for gods sake. They dance as if they were the only ones on the field. A true representation of the "ME" generation. Tell me the names of present day nfl players who will return to their communities the good will they receive from the fools who pay their highly inflated salaries? Can you name 5, 10?

"or are you bent that a woman just finished 4th in the INDY 500? "

To the contrary. I was happy she finished in the top 10. I was hoping she won it today. She is a good example of a true sportsman. Did you hear her being interviewed afterward? What a true sport. She took little credit for her 4th place win. She credited the owners and crew and the obligatory sponsors, in that order. Then she mentioned her mistakes that cost her the win. She will be back and she will be be a driver to contend with.

Beg to differ (yet again). The Daytona 500 is easily the biggest race out there. Matter of fact, the NASCAR race that goes on at Indy is bigger than the Indy 500.

As for sporting events, NOTHING beats the Super Bowl in the US. World wide, and I hate to say it, the World Cup is even bigger...

My apologies. You are right. The Indy 500 is no longer the largest single day attendance event. It used to be just a few years ago. The Brickyard does not even release attendance figure any longer. They used to draw 500,000 on race day. I believe Danica will increase viewers next year though. My hearty congrats to you Danica.

They have to thank their sponsors because its in their contract.

Seriously, you have a unhealthy anger toward NFL players and athletes in general. Just like the general public, some are nice and some are not.

And by definition, players cannot be "overpaid" - their worth is set by what the owners are willing the pay them.

The Indy 500 is no longer the largest single day attendance event.

The Indy 500 has been drawfed in television audience numbers forever. Almost every NASCAR race draws more views than the Indy 500. The same with a Monday Night Football game.

Let me guess how the race went.

A bunch of cars went around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around a big oval track, and one of them finished first and was declared the winner.

wow.

I like Kurt Warner, and with two good young recievers, a rookie corner who should be good, and a promising RB, they look like the could win the NFC West and possible go to the divisionals.
