Many of us overlooked the Vicodin scandal a few years ago that included, among the fallout, a dismissed Director of Security who countered with a lawsuit for said result...

We were, after all, basking in the glory of Lombardi Gras.

Consequently, the Saints used some fancy legal maneuvering and the League Office to dodge a bullet by means of arbitration; the league office was not amused by this...cleverness...

There is a great deal of information on the...

Judge Slowly

Posted 03-06-2012 at 05:51 PM by xan

There's a breakdown in our society. We use to be a civilization that prized justice, equity, truth and honesty. Dedicated professionals sought facts, verified with the proper context. There was a reward for precision, for perspective, and for patience.

No More.

We have trained ourselves to react to every statement, misstatement, fact, and lie as if, without our personal Armageddon-like judgment, total annihilation would ensue and we would all be cast into the Pit of...

NFL Alumni vote Stafford QB of the Year (?)

Posted 02-26-2012 at 12:44 PM by SloMotion

..... now that I have your attention, hehehe ..... this isn't an attempt to flame the board or dis Drew Brees, I just felt like blogging about the NFL Alumni Awards in general and needed an eye-catching, flashy title to get my creative juices flowing and a shameless attempt to drive traffic to my blog ...

The NFL Alumni Awards, why haven't I really noticed them before? Maybe because they're held during SuperBowl week and there's too much else going on? Maybe because you don't often...
