    Goodell, The Dictator.

    I knew the NFL commissioner was against us when the NFL changed the playoff overtime rule after we beat Minnesota in overtime to go to our first Super Bowl

    we aren't just upset about punishments, but rather the ridiculous severity of them, and more importantly, the ignorance of Goodell to what is clearly a league wide issue.

    We Have A Hypocrite In Our Midst

    Much agreed. The league can't have it both ways.

    It's not just the NFL ... America is starting to ruin all it's team sports. The NHL, I'm afraid, will eventually catch up to the madness.

    NFL Alumni vote Stafford QB of the Year (?)

    IDK, I'm on the list but I think I'm going to pass until next season, not real excited about their non-conference opponents at home for 2012, even though Houston would probably be a good game to watch.

    That will be a good game @ Tennessee. You know Schwartz is going to have some fun in the interviews when asked about playing his old team, .

    You gonna break down and get season tix? I still want to make it up to FF for a game. I will in all likelihood be going to the Lions @ Titans game, as it's much closer to me. Should be fun to see Schwartz return to Tennessee to take on his old team.

    Thanks. I think it was unfortunate for Stafford that the year he has a genuine "QB of the Year" season, two of the league's elite had a slightly better one. But he's young, so "It's Always Sunny in Detroit". I'm gonna' love hanging out at Eastern Market tailgating next season, thanks to Matt & Co.

    Weird list. Good read, Slomo.

    The coach of the year was fired. I think that says everything about these "awards". Stafford should not have won QB of the year, and Suh should not have won DL of the year.

    WOW.

    Respect for Ryan Braun

    I'm not necessarily 'siding' with the guy, I'm just surprised the MLB tried to pursue the charges knowing there was such a flagrant violation of the chain-of-custody protocols.

    I can also appreciate the fact the guy kept it on the down-low and didn't go the denial route or the "my true fans will believe me" route. Who wants to see another media circus as with Sosa, Mcguire, Bonds, Clemens, Conseco ... not me.

    Respect for Ryan Braun

    I'm sorry I just can't see myself siding with Braun regardless of how "classy" he approached and dealt with the process. He can deny all he wants... so did Raffy, Bonds, Clemens, etc. They swore up and down they never touched the stuff yet were all found to be liars. Could it have been the "herpes medication" he was taking... only he knows that. But he tested positive for a banned substance and the fact of the matter is that he did get off on a technicality and deserved some sort of punishment.

    What's funny is that I have no problems with steriods. I work in a clinic and when people are hurt or feeling sick, it helps you feel better. Hell I don't even care if they use it as a performance enhancing drug... the best years of baseball in the last 20 years was the steroid era. Chicks dig the long balls... and so do grown ass men. I just feel if you did do it and go caught, just man up to it and move along. Don't be like those other guys.

    MLB dropped the ball on this one, big time. Chain-of-custody is serious business. Keeping urine samples in a collector's basement over the weekend violates chain-of-custody. You would think an MLB CDT (Comprehensive Drug Testing) collector with 6yrs experience would know that and follow the correct protocol.

    It's done correctly in thousands of clinics around the country every day, including Sundays, and in the military. Pro sports are not the exception.

    Chalk one up for the 'Hebrew Hammer', regardless of whether his sample tested positive or negative, the failure to follow protocol invalidates the test. And 'yes', he did handle the whole situation quite professionally.

    I can't believe MLB even tried going ahead with a suspension knowing the samples were kept, unsecured, in a basement for that long ... that is 'bush' league. Kudos to Ryan Braun for standing up for himself.

    Could former Saints practice-squad player be the next Jeremy Lin?

    ... yeah, Ivory ... having Sproles, PT & Ingram on the roster didn't help any either ... the Saints were 'blessed' with an abundance of RB talent ...

    If the Saints did not have the "package of violence", Bell would be on the team.

    Yeah, when I see a list of awards like this it makes me think of the American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) where everyone gets a trophy. That's good for the kids, but these guys are million dollar athletes, does everyone need a trophy in the NFL?

    That is a heck of a list...can't see anything wrong with it (rolling my eyes in the back of my head at this very moment)
    and think they are all well deserving of the award they received.
