Report: Giants interested in Sharpe
Shannon Sharpe once had some harsh words for the Giants, saying his Ravens could have beaten them 50-0 in Super Bowl XXXV. The Giants, who lost that game 34-7 in January of 2001, may now consider adding the future Hall of Fame tight end to their offense. The Giants are interested in signing Sharpe, unnamed sources told the New York Post on Feb. 27. Sharpe will be a free agent as soon as he is officially released from the Ravens. Giants head coach Jim Fassel...
With all the chatter about salary caps, I'm curious as to what people actually think about them?
And by people, I mean the fans, not the media goons.
I'm not a follower of football or basketball but here are a few of my thoughts:
Basketball: Their cap seems like a joke to me. It hasn't stopped exhorbitant salaries since teams can sign their own players to whatever amount they want, as for competitive balance, seems like many of the same teams make it in every year with some new teams...
This article was interesting to me -- it was the first I had heard of this lawsuit....It's really going to be interesting when they start naming names... :
I understand that they are suing almost every NFL team...I'm surprised they were able to keep that dirty little secret under wraps for as long as they did...you would think that one of the Eagles players dated a cheerleader and must have told them even though their locker room was far...
Can someone please explain to me why Armstead wouldn't re-do his contract with the Giants? He was scheduled to make around $5 mil next season and wouldn't re-negotiate, but he signed with Washington for $4.5 mil for three years!!!
Am I misunderstanding something here, or is my anger at Jessie justified?

The Rangers beat the Flyers today 6-5. Lindros had a hat trick against his old boys (suck on that ................ Bobby Clarke!).
All I want to know is why Ron Low cannot get those guys to play such a highly physical game like that every night. The Rangers were all over the net, finishing checks and not backing down from the fearful Flyers who are easily the most physical team in the NHL. It's a bad habit for this hockey team to get up for games against the Flyers and Islanders and play like they're...
Earlier, someone posted a little blurb from the NY Post's Page Six about George and the Olympics.
Here is a more detailed article from the LA Times:
What I am about to say a lot of people aren't going to like, but I'm going to say it anyway because it's truly how I feel. Hopefully some people will see my points and share my views.
I am really amazed when I see a lot of posters praising Team Canada for their gold medal in hockey yesterday. I am pissed for several reasons:
1) Canada dominated the game yesterday and deserved to win it... But as Al Morganti said, they played like crap for the entire tournament with the exception of one...
I don't care if he is 7' 6" and averaged 30ppg for some team
in Shanghai, if they waste a lottery pick on him Layden and
Dolan should have their heads examined.
Very good gold medal round. Team Canada definitely deserved the gold medal. Their defense was stifling. Martin Brodeur and Joe Sakic were stellar. O Canada...great job. Congratulations to Team USA on the silver medal. Much better than their last Olympics in Nagano.
Sources: Madden will team with Michaels
NEW YORK -- John Madden is joining "Monday Night Football."
The gregarious announcer agreed to a four-year deal with ABC and will team with veteran play-by-play man Al Michaels to form a two-man booth on the show, two industry sources told The Associated Press on Thursday on condition of anonymity.
After the dreadful, disgraceful 43-point loss on MLK Day, the Knicks have now won at Toronto, against Phoenix, at Milwaukee and tonight against the defending Eastern Conference Champion Philadelphia 76ers.
It's quite obvious that the loss of Jeff Van Gundy took some wind out of the Knicks sails. It got worse when they lost a ton of very close games. Michael Jordan beat us with 15 or so seconds left, the Rockets beat us at the buzzer, the Celtics beat us in the closing seconds of the fourth...
Apolo never crossed the finish line 1st. :mad: :(
Ok.. most of you will vote for the Americans, cuz you are Americans. In my eyes the Canadians are the favorite. Look at their lineup..
Who do you think will win the men's hockey final on sunday?
I'll vote for the Canadiens..
I just came back from the Meadowlands having watched the Nets
crush the Knicks from start to finish.
The Knicks are dreadful. No effort. I don't how they can look
themselves in the mirror in the morning. They
should be renamed the Patheknicks. They are pathetic.
The Nets however are a great team to watch. Kidd is MVP
and Richard Jefferson who had 22 is for real.
I'm not a huge fan of Michelle Kwan or her skating...I would have been happy for her if she won because she's an American, but was actually thrilled for Sarah Hughes. I think down the road, Sasha Cohen will be the best of them all....however, last night, Sarah was clearly the best skater with her record-breaking performance....
but here come the Russian judges to protest...they must be kidding if they think Slutskaya was better than Hughes...she actually wasn't as good as Kwan last night...
CONGRATULATIONS MATT KENSETH From Roush Racing Team! ROCKINGHAMS 400 NASCAR WINNER TODAY FEB 24th!!!!
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE ROUSH TEAM OF CARS TOO Which Includes My Favorite Mark Martin!
GREAT RACE & RAINBOW GORDON NO WHERES NEAR TOP!!!!!! :lol:
Once Yankees Baseball Season starts I wont get to Congratulate so many drivers so I thought I would take the opportunity now to do it!!!!!!!
Where wil he fight?
I am not a huge hockey fan, but I have been watching olympic hockey. I have to say that it is amazing. The finish to tonight's Russia-USA game was amazing. It was one of the most exciting sporting events I have seen in quite some time.
Canada has to be the huge favorite on Sunday, but I have a strange gut feeling that the USA is going to pull off the upset.
Should the Russian pair give up their medals to the Canadian pair? What would you do if you were in that situation? I'm NOT JUDGING THEM AT ALL...
However, if I was in their position, I PERSONALLY would've given them my gold and taken their silver. I know it wasn't their fault that the judges screwed up, but I don't want something that is tainted. Especially since it has arised that CORRUPTION was involved.
No matter what chick you end up banging they are gonna cry rape..I suggest you look into abstaining or well.... ok.....
Just a little advice
Will the Super Bowl Ever become a Pay-Per-View Event?
This Sunday and next, when you and much of the nation gather to watch the National Football League's conference championships and Super Bowl XXXVI, keep this in mind -- your days of being able to see those kinds of major sporting events on free broadcast television are numbered. That and this report from CNNmoney.com's Chris Isidore
It won't happen next year, or the year...
Bill Pennington of the NY Times reports today, that the Giants did not protect LB Jesse Armstead for the upcomming NFL Housten Texans expension draft on friday!!
He is one of the few Giants fanchise players, should they really make him elligable???
I personally think no, they should not.
What´re you think, good move or a bad move for the Giants????
I was rooting for Michelle and I would be dissapointed for her if I wasn't so confused. Someone enlighten me here. If Michelle and Sarah were both first, how did Sarah get gold and Michelle get bronze?
