Musburger should not be fired or forced to apologize. It's ridiculous that ESPN has given and apologetic statement for his comments. He didn’t say anything that should be considered over the top or out of line. “He was complimentary, not creepy”, “He said we were beautiful and gorgeous, I don’t see why any woman wouldn’t be flattered by that”– Those were the words from Katherine herself and if she’s not offended then neither should anyone else. Once again it’s the media making something out of nothing.
This has absolutely nothing to do with the Obama administration. Your post is nothing but garbage.
99% of the people that post on here have no idea what they're talking about. and notpc, you are not the 1%.
That is one of the dumbest comments I have ever read anywhere. No, the CEO of TVA was not out hanging downed power lines during the storm restoration... You are amazing with your insight. Yes, his employees will absolutely receive this bonus. It's astonishing to me that people will post on here without the slightest bit of knowledge of what they are talking about.
Yes, his pay comes from everyone who pays an electric bill...
Have you forgotten already? This area went through some of the worst storms in history and OUR TVA and local distributors worked their asses off in horrible conditions to restore power to hospitals, nursing homes, fuel stations and homes in the valley in an incredible timeframe for the damage and they did it safely.
Even with this raise, Kilgore is still well below the average of other CEOs of much smaller utility companies in the region, 10 million less than the same position at Southern Company and you still pay some of the cheapest rates in the nation. Whenever you blabbermouths earn your multiple engineering degrees and become head of a multi-billion dollar company then you can reject a pay raise.
The fact that T-town Menswear displays signed memorabilia by current players does not cause a player eligibility issues. Same for players who are photographed inside the business signing an autograph. It is only an issue if the players know it is being used to promote the business, they are receiving free or discounted items or they are outright selling their autograph. The fact that the university was notified and realized this could be an issue, sent a cease and desist letter then disassociated themselves (and did so way before this story came out) results in this not being an eligibility issue. I guess there is also room for interpretation in the rules. Otherwise, if Sports Illustrated sets up an interview with a current player then the player obviously knows the story will be published, SI is using the article to sell their magazine then why is that not a violation?
I guess we should call a truce seeing how Richardson is eligible, Cam/Auburn was cleared so we should both be pretty happy considering everything... until the Iron Bowl that is
Oh, you're talking about secondary violations? there are over 1500 secondary violations per year by many schools. I thought you may have been talking about violations that matter.
Cam Newton was facing expulsion at Florida for academic cheating, the reason he transferred to Blinn College. http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=5783051.
The junk story you just gave is false. "The N.C.A.A. acknowledged last fall that Newton’s father, Cecil Newton, shopped his son to Mississippi State for nearly $200,000"
I cant provide a link you requested for the archived USA Today article but the date was July 26, 2011, on the front page. YOUR problem is you are linking to stories by Sports by Brooks which most of us who follow sports know it is a SPORTS GOSSIP BLOG. I get my information from news sources not blogs so if you want to reference anything else by SBB or Outkickthecoverage.com, I'm not going to read it. It is the National Enquirer of the sports world. The "ticket" posted on the website is a fake. It lists the wrong birth year and his 2011 Yukon is actually a 2007 Yukon.
Also HC, this "game these boys play" helps keep thousands of kids away from drugs and thugs, gives them something to focus on, an opportunity to go to college that they might not otherwise have. College football coaches do not just coach a game. They teach teamwork, respect and discipline. They are academic, athletic, personal advisors and father figures to a lot of kids who need one.
First of all Hump, MSU did not go on probation because Nick Saban. The sanctions were levied under Nick's tenure due to his predecessor. The LSU sanctions were due to an assistant coach and there is no such thing as "suitgate". People like you (the fans opposing teams) and the media created "suitgate" while Cam was facing punishment from Florida for his third time cheating on tests, possessing a stolen computer and throwing it out the window when the police arrived, then his father appears on tape trying to prostitute his son to Mississippi State for 180k dollars. I would love to see your so called "photographic evidence" of Richardson getting benefits. The last time I checked, a LOT of college players wear suits to the stadium before games and sign autographs. There are several articles about your Alabama suit scandal on the internet from USA Today, Al.com and so forth and yet nothing comes of it. Probably because there is nothing to come out.
and HC... The university hired a man for 4 million and received an 11 million dollar return in one year. I'd say it was a good investment.
"federal records show Alabama football turned a profit of more than $38 million in the last academic year. That's an almost 40 percent gain from the year before Saban was hired in 2007."
"Football revenue jumped 16% in Saban's first two years — from nearly $56 million before he arrived to almost $65 million in 2008. Gaston conservatively projects a $39 million profit for 2009 and, with the expanded stadium and ticket demand, says he expects the climb to continue."
I wasn't saying that I believe the Mexican flag should fly over gov't building, I don't. Only the US and state flags. BTW, great comment on Lee's allegiance to his home state.
As far as flying my little flag, I don't own one but I respect the right of those that do. That's all I'm saying. I never said anything about Jeff Davis being my hero either. It sounds like you would like to make me out to be a sheet wearing, cross burning biggot but I'm not. I made a speech in college over the flag issue and I didn't do it in front of an all white class. It was not be offensive to anyone just stating my opinion on the issue. There was a protest at that time over whether or not South Carolina should remove the battle flag, not from the state house, but from a Confederate cemetery. That is absolutely ridiculous. If it offends you that bad then why can't you just keep your mouth shut and your ass off the property?
I'm not religious. At all. But if I'm around family or complete strangers who want to say the blessing before they eat, I dont bitch or complain about it. I let them do their thing and be respectful of it.
I see the bigger problem is that a lot of people in this country are hypersensitive "P.C." complainers who gets butthurt over nothing. You don't understand why anyone would want to fly the flag so you feel the need to intrude on their beliefs.
