With The Bengals nothing is for sure, But one thing is, Mike Brown is not PLAYING BALL with his DISTRAUGHT QuarterBack, CArson palmer has Vowed He would never STEP FOOT on PAUL BROWN STADIUM again. Head Coach Marvin Lewis,has indicated that the TEAM has chose to move on as if Palmer would not be there,Enter the DRAFT, with the Number FOUR PICK in the Draft, Jake Locker,Ryan Mallett,and Cam Newton are waiting  in the Wings to Catch on and be the Heir Apparent to Carson palmer. Cam Newton, the Heisman Trophy Winner from Last Year looks to have all the tools, and the Talent to take Command of a New West Coast Offense,and New Offensive Coordinator Jay Gruden’s Grand Scheme. Locker,and Mallett look to be in the Mix,

but Cam looks  to be the Front Runner in this Race. The Bengals have talked to him and all looks good. Newton looks to Fit for The WEST COAST System that New Offensive Coordinator Jay Gruden is Installing. At the Number Four Pick The Bengals are Primed to Take Newton, Unless One of the Three teams in front decide to take a CHANCE on him first.in that case, both Locker and Mallett would be Factors. both are Big , Strong and Mobile and would be great picks also.

It’s been just over a month that the [GREEN BAY PACKERS] won ANOTHER Lombardi Trophy. As I mentioned earlier the men that make up the rosters of the THIRTY-TWO National Football League teams WORK HARD to [BECOME] the specimens we see, (and try to emulate.), through T.V. or in the stadium/ arena.

 Many begin their training at such an early age that it’s a foregone conclusion. 

Whether Base-, Basket-, Football. Or ANY other sport, the benefits distributed throughout our communities is [STAGGERING] when multiplied by what we DON’T know about. With the lucretive tax breaks that schools and [PROFESSIONAL TEAM OWNERSHIP] receive the BOTTOM line of it ALL is the ATHLETE.

 The swordless Gladiators that challenge the seemingly crazy…

… when they, really, know the consequences of the actions their employers have been making [\”light\”] of.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                The [HISTORY] of organized LABOR and how it has helped build the ability to raise a family cannot be questioned, except by those that don’t know HOW IT works… OR by those that have fostered its demise by NOT WORKING within the boundaries of the WORK-PLACE.

The ownership of each NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL [FRANCHISE] , except that of GREEN BAY, have been [CONTENTIOUS] , at best. Talk on, almost, all the ESPN talk segments have alluded to this scenario. there’s been the intimation that there “could” be the real life version of “THE REPLACEMENTS“…

… Many of the newer players wary of the fact that a Veteran being able to dip into some of their saved sums from past seasons.

I wonder if the NFL owners are able to envision a comparison between them and how the American automobile industry  “assisted” in the nation’s economic “decline” just a year, or so, ago ? How many PART-TIME jobs, Municipal coffers, (READ TAXES!!!), Television REVENUES and the profits made from CLOTHING, (  With $18.6 billion in revenue in 2008. NIKE), from the OBVIOUS standpoints !?! This is going to be one of THE best KNOCK-DOWN-DRAG-OUTS  witnessed in  our CUMULATIVE ‘labor/management’  battles YET. And with the “news” agencies focused on how the legislature of WISCONSIN putting the [KLIEGS] of this insinuation into the eyes of the citizens/ SPORT FAN, (Remember, the GREEN BAY PACKERS ARE the ONLY NON-PROFIT TEAM in the NFL!), is there a THEME here somewheres ? It’s [\”FUNNY\’],the  Grasshoppers that make “six figures a minute” are claiming that the “Bees” are trying to carry away the forest. This is how things [REALLY] work, it’s up to you to know it.

This is a story about a couple of sports ‘Heroes’.

[STANLEY FRANK MUSIAL]                                                                                                                                                                

                                                                     

   

[WILLIAM FELTON RUSSELL]

 I’ve said heroes, and I mean it in the most SINCERE manner that I can express.

 Stan “The Man” Musial was the most prolific Baseball player of his time. And that was accomplished even as he’d served in the U.S. Navy during World War 2, (Cardinals@ 1941-1963). As a civilian he served as Vice President of the St. Louis CARDINAL Baseball team serving his country also that year by being this nation’s PHYSICAL FITNESS ADVISOR for President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1967. If you couldn’t guess, Stan is also an inductee of the Major League Baseball Hall of FAME. 

“Bill” Russell IS the premier DNA donor to the model of what the title CENTER means to the definition of WHAT a position player SHOULD BE in the game of Basketball. Not only did he “stand his ground” at the post but, he did outside the walls of Boston Gardens. On a road trip the black players were denied a service… after “some” was rendered HE REFUSED to play THAT night’s game. He, too, is in the Hall of FAME, but in the halls of the National Basketball Association’s.

 These MEN have served their SPORT and WORLD during their lifetimes. And on Tuesday, February Fifteenth, Two-Thousand Twelve, BOTH, were seated in the WHITE HOUSE along with 15present, plus 1 postumous, [RECIPIENTS].

Congratulations to ALL for their GIFTS to the world. And for receiving the [PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL of FREEDOM].

The NFL has seen the end of its NINETY-FIRST year of existence, ( Its forty-fifth Super Bowl.), and like Wall Street the GREED factor looks to reach into the house-“holds” of America. At the Feb. 5, 2011 meeting between the [NFLPA] and league team owners it was reported that CAROLINA PANTHER owner, Jerry Richardson, was fairly denigrating to Drew Brees AND Peyton Manning. (!!!) During the meeting the subject of player safety was brought up by Manning. Richardson’s reply was…. [“What do you know about player safety?”]. This is exactly NOT what someone who thinks they “deserve” someone’s LOYALTY should use as a “CARROT” to get them down the road.

The game of Football is a seriously violent sport that’s designed men of great physical strength and SPEED to continually run “into” each other for an HOUR, (Or more if “OVER-TIME”.) . With them being able to generate the equivalent force of a car hitting a wall going (around) 25m.p.h.

Sometimes those who use sport as a BUSINESS forget that the chaff,1

n 1. (Life Sciences & Allied Applications / Agriculture) the mass of husks, etc., separated from the seeds during threshing

2. (Life Sciences & Allied Applications / Agriculture) finely cut straw and hay used to feed cattle3. something of little worth; rubbish (esp in the phrase separate the wheat from the chaff) [Old English ceaf; related to Old High German keva husk].

… , is an integral, and necessary ingredient for all the “bread” that they’re making. AND happens to be the same kingdom, phylum, order, genus, species, CLASS and Domain that they are a “part” of. It’s getting difficult enough to GET, let lone KEEP, a J.O.B. that PAYS well. And one that “YOU’VE” chosen. I have hope that Mr. Richardson is the lone opinion of contention in this, because I Do enjoy the game that I couldn’t play well. Mr. Richardson can’t define these MEN as… “PROLETARIAT [ˌprəʊlɪˈtɛərɪət]

n 1. (Government, Politics & Diplomacy) all wage-earners collectively

2. (Government, Politics & Diplomacy) the lower or working class3. (Government, Politics & Diplomacy) (in Marxist theory) the class of wage-earners, esp industrial workers, in a capitalist society, whose only possession of significant material value is their labour4. (Historical Terms) (in ancient Rome) the lowest class of citizens, who had no property.

Feb 22 2011 [NFL PA UPDATE]

[via French from Latin prōlētārius proletarian].

Things are moving toward [OPENING DAY] at a rapid pace in the MLB, some players are planning their next “move”.  [Joseph Patrick Mauer ]  could be “on the market” if the MINNESOTA TWINS don’t resign him. Mauer, a DEFENSIVE Catcher       who also happens to hit like an All-Star batsman, ponders if the TWINS will resign him. If they do it could be in excess of $200 Million.

                                     A little steep,but Mauer is worth the investment                              

           [CHRISTOPHER PHIFER LEE]

                                                                             and            [BRANDON TYLER  WEBB]

 also wonder where they will playing, LEE,  won the CyYoung award in O8. and Played like Cy in O9. 

   

On the Opposite end of the Spectrum, Webb pitched just four innings last year, then had Back Surgery on top of that.  But on the BRIGHT SIDE, Webb when healthy, can be on that SHORT LIST of the Best Pitchers in Baseball. Outfielders,

 [CARL DEMONTE CRAWFORD]

   

  [Jayson Richard Gowan Werth (Werewolf)

    

 have had huge up-swings when it comes to power hitting, and should fit somebody’s schemes nicely. Werth has been an asset to the PHILLIES since they signed him in 2007.

[VICTOR JESUS MARTINEZ]  

      and

                                                  [Joshua Patrick Beckett  

 have some factors working…  “reputation” and age… against them, but are also good in a lot of areas. The wild cards are [DEREK SANDERSON JETER], [Manuel Aristides (Onelcida) Ramirez ], and [Adam Troy Dunn (Big Donkey) ] are also on that list. More to follow.
