Yep Ron --I'm an avid wrestling fan--no to be quite honest I'm an avid sports fan ---Pacman Jones signed a 2 year contract for 1 million plus $$-- & didn't last more than 4 months- in TNA wrestling---all he did was pose in the ring --talk a little smack & stand in the corner of the ring holding up the ringpost--hell I can do that !!--needless to say he was  "let go "--I don't care for people who have the God -given talent like him & T.O & then they let their big mouths blow it --just doesn't make sense to me --  ya know what I think of when I think of people like that --I think of the song --Oh Lord It's Hard To Be Humble When You're Perfect In Every Way----that suits them to a T
( Ah Ron--Yokozuna died years ago--just to let ya know )

DF, I played both organized baseball and football growing up.  If I (or any other player) tried anything remotely similar to what these guys do now, we'd never see the playing field (if not outright cut).  

I'm not sure at what level these players pick these- 'look at me, I'm a dancing butt hole'  -celebrations up at, but it's out of control (IMHO).  Wasn't it Owens who busted out the Sharpie marker after scoring a touchdown on MNF?

So he's a wrestler, huh?   I just had a really bad visual of him laying flat on his back in the middle of the ring while Yokozuna sits his 450 lb. ass right on his face!!!

Sue, it doesn't matter to me what team you (or anyone else) root for, to see someone show passion about their team is what I respect.  That you root for the Cowboys or Lana roots for anything Pennsylvania () just gives me (and others ) something to pick on you guys about!!!  All in good fun!!  I'll never knock T.O.'s (or the others I mentioned) skills as a player, they are all great athletes in their own right, my problem is their 6 yr. old mentalities.  Could you imagine a co-worker acting like him at work and having to put up with it every day??  And Williams is the EXACT same way, I wonder how they are going to get along the rest of the season?!  

By the way, you ever want to hook up with a real team, you'll run in to them on Lake Shore Drive (LSD) in Chicago!!

You ain't LYIN'. I was getting SO annoyed from those guys of the Rams "touchdown dancing" everytime they scored last Sunday.  I was getting annoyed everytime the Rams scored PERIOD.    But then to see that one dude do that stupid-ass dance REALLY got under my skin.  Somebody SLAP him already.

Thanks.  I owe all my passion for the game to my big brother, who is an even BIGGER Dallas Cowboys fan than I am...even if he currently lives in RAIDERS land. 

The thing that frustrates me the most about guys like T.O..they CAN be awesome players..just as long as they keep focused & keep their TRAPS SHUT.  T.O. played bad-ass last season.  Just wish he'd pull it off THIS year.  *sighs*

GREAT point, HB. I have seen it countless times!! The team that plays as a unit and works at the fundamentals is always victorious over the superstars. I have to laugh everytime I think of our glorious US basketball "dreamteam" that got smoked in the Olympics by a bunch of "nobody" teams a couple years ago!! HA!!!!! What a perfect example! It is amazing to see the team now. Lesson learned. Play together.

a "team" is also greater than the sum of its parts.  Good players, working together can defeat a group of the best players put on the field, playing as indidviduals.

I agree with you about everyone gets a medal, or not keeping score.  the kids know the score, and if we can teach them not to play to win, we teach them to play to lose.

on the victory celebrations, the CFL touchdown celebrations are geting realy stupid.  watching the recieving core sit down playing duck duck goose, who came up with this idea?
bring on the extra point team and move the hell on.

Very well said, Ron. Not too sure I can improve on that.
You see, I come from a time when we were taught team sport. There was no such thing as a trophy just for showing up and, if you were not good enough, you did not make the team. It did not matter what your parent thought or what some kiddie psychologigst said. If you were no good, you were no good and needed to find something else to do. Coaches taught us how to play together , to support one another. We were there to win and we knew that it would take all parts, working in unison, to achieve our objective not one guy doing it all while we admired him.

Of course there was the standout. The great player that would carry us through the tough times and gain the big yards or get the key hit when we needed it but other teams knew that as well and played to stop that particular player. At one time or another, I was actually that guy!!  Again, as a team, we could adjust to their folly and win the day. I will say this, in the entire time that I played sport, from school days right through adulthood, I never performed some stupid "victory dance" or acted out some moronic skit on the field of play. Never. Nor did any of my teammates. It was just not done. There is a certain dignity in being  a winner and moreso in being very good at what you do. I have never needed to remind anyone on the field of my ability by acting foolish. My play spoke quite loudly.
