June 8th Winner: OZPUNK

NFL players are certainly not above the law, but they are subject to a more lenient justice system because we the fans don't want to be disillusioned and are awfully quick to forgive.

May 19 Winner: cohenra

Anybody who needs another "talking head" to break down a game that is sheer brutality masked as a sport is, as a wiser man than me would put it, "an idiot."

May 11th Winner: echovector

Seed the playoffs based on record. It's absurd that last year two teams with great records in tough divisions lost on the road to mediocre teams from lousy divisions.

If Oprah put a football in her hands and said she could throw, Snyder would probably be there with a contract. He is single handedly turning what was a rich and respected football franchise into a low class, alienated and mocked flea circus.

April 1 Winner: wprioleau

I've heard that Al leaves more football knowledge in the "bowl" than most folks will ever know, but when a man drafts a kicker in the first round of the draft at 17 it's time to put his wheelchair on cruise and point him in the direction of the bright warm light.

March 19th Winner: bigboid

I always thought the rule only needed to be modified just a wee bit: ensure both teams get at least one possession in OT.

March 6th Winner: INKYDOG

I have been a Redskins fan all of my life, but as God as my witness, if they sign TO I will pack away my burgundy and gold jersey and find another team to follow.

Snyder is following Jerry Jones's "team" concept and obtaining the same results.

January 26th Winner: cgaginis

Nobody's worth that, but Snyder and Vinny might actually pay. If they do, the headline will read "Redskins sign Haynesworth for $102 Million - Snyder's Ego Satiated."

February 25th Winner: texas_willie

Jerry Jones is a short-sighted egomaniac, an embarrassment, and an enabler of over-the-hill veterans who know a sugar daddy when they see and hear it.

February 20th Winner: GEORGE43

The below average scores prospects get on the Wonderlic underscores the true lack of education most players receive in college.

February 9th Winner: DELOH

Was Bonds a jerk toward the media? Sure, but never underestimate the power of the pen, especially when the pen is used while grinding axes.

February 8th Winner: OZPUNK

Moving the Pro Bowl to a different place might save the NFL money but it will diminish interest in players. Who wants to go to Detroit in February to play a meaningless football game?

February 4th Winner: skinsfan80

At the end of the day, it's hard to have a discussion about restricting one person's rights while not also asking yourself if you should stop talking because you're furthering your own agenda in the same breath.

January 2nd Winner: BOBFBELL

There was so much Steelers holding whenever Big Ben evaded the Cardinal rush, the offensive line should have been arrested for mugging.

I do not know a lot about PETA, but it seems the organization is one that requires occasional celebrity cases to promote its cause and to keep itself in the news.

January 24th Winner: KEMP13

Dallas fans HATE this. That alone makes it a great development! Here's to the glamor teams.

January 22nd Winner: JOHANN_CAT

Namath is in the hall of fame not just because of the Super Bowl, but because of the aesthetics of his game.

January 19th Winner: JPRS

Arizona reminds me a bit of the New England Patriots '85 team in the sense that they're a good team with flaws that's peaked at the right time.

January 18th Winner: OZPUNK

Perhaps T.O. will show up in Arizona and tearfully apologize to Andy and Donovan and ask to be traded back to Philly?

January 16th Winner: Dalian China Knows Football

Pioli wants to get out from under the skirt of Belichick, and wave his own magic wand. This is a great move for all concerned, save poor Herman. Stick a fork in him, he's so done!

January 13th Winner: GRATIANUS

It's too much to say Plax is to blame for the Giants losing, but he certainly shares the blame.

January 9th Winner: ChaoticCracker

Remember the Philly fans ready to run Charlie Manuel out of town after the 2007 playoffs? Today, he's the most loved sports coach in the city. It's amazing what a trophy will do to fix a tarnished image.

December 31st Winner: MIDAS 20874

Norv may not be enshrined in Canton after his career is over. But no one should doubt his offensive mind.

December 23rd Winner: WPRIOLEAU

No one choked like the Cowboys (and I am a Cowboy fan). We need a championship gut to go with all that glitter.

Turner couldn't carry the burden Peterson does in Minnesota. He's not a home run back.

December 16th Winner: delOH

Al Davis gets a free pass, he's not hitting on all eight. Jerry Jones hasn't won a post season game since Super Bowl XXX. Maybe the football gods are punishing him.

Alcohol may cause problems, but football games aren't supposed to be Quaker's Meeting for 60,000, with no laughing, no talking and no showing your teeth.

OJ got off on a murder conviction. Now he gets convicted because of legal entrapment. This ain't Karma, this is crap!

December 2nd Winner: OZZIE

This will be the end of Plax but the greater issue of athletes and guns will be ignored and the cycle will be left to repeat again.

November 27th Winner: PEOPLE WATCHER

Vick deserved to lose everything, but when someone has served their time, do you go down to their job, where they're trying to make a legitimate living, and picket?

November 26th Winner: RICHFROMPHILLY

Yes, Donovan was miserable, but it was Reid who lost the game for us.

I feel the pain of the Bengal's fans, being a fan of a continuosly lackluster team, the Browns.

Despite what Mark Maske might think, being a good player never excuses poor sportsmanship.

November 19th Winner: THEOTHERONE

Don't underestimate Pittsburgh. They're one bad snap away from being 8-2 (which would have given the mighty Giants an 8-2 record as well).

November 11th-18th Winner: GETTYLEIGH

Though gamblers lost out, what's really disturbing is that those extra 7 points may hurt the Steelers come playoff time.

November 4th-11th Winner: VINGOLD

The terrible traffic at Fed Ex Field was as much of a fan killer as the terrible towels were last Monday.

October 12th-19th Winner

18-game schedule? YEAH!!! More Playoff teams? HELL NO! NO MORE UNDESERVING "PLAYOFF" TEAMS!!! Basically, this boils down to the fact that the NFL can charge the networks more money if they have more premium (read: playoff) games to offer. I...
