Aren"t these 2 dudes wife and girlfriend beaters I think its label domestic violence and we gotRead More them in R community with kids Wow no wonder this country is so FUed.

@H Callahan....I guess you feel the kids in R community are better protected by being in theRead More presence of some upstanding folks in our communities like (sexual deviant) priests, teachers and long time neighbors versus in a room full of people with cameras asking questions to two highly publicized figures who at no point are alone with children and have never been accused, arrested and/or convicted of harming any child. I do not condone domestic violence and unless either has been convicted of it ....then it remain none of my business. But again, we have another commentator making comments unrelated to the topic...no wonder this country is so FUed.

@Ralph Malph... my Postie Webber sense is tingling... I always like to engage the new era vs theRead More old and every takeaway is..it's two different eras..so comparing them never really works..Ali vs Superman..very subjective depending on who you ask and what you ask. I disagree...I saw Jordan flop plenty of times, although, flopping was never at the forefront as it is today. IMO..they all flop...I think james gets more criticism b/c well he's LB. My list of biggest floppers in the league are Hardin, Ginobili, Varejao, chris paul and pierce. But at the end of the day...if the league is going to revamp flopping then they need to reassess fouls especally that "catch em in the air..jump into them" foul...imo that's an offensive foul all day....everyday....

Pretty sure that not only do the tickets have an injury clause but there are signs posted everywhereRead More saying pucks may enter the stands and an announcement before the puck drops. I'm sure the United Center has a liability policy and if I'm the claim adjuster, I'm not paying. But watch the UC settle to avoid litigation.

Fat cows head and body are the size of 3 normal human beings, how could the puck miss this monster.Read More My sources tell me this old tubby is an obstruction to the fans behind her and also known to frighten young children at the stadium. The UC is much better without Miss Piggy as I'm sure this farm animal is done with live hockey. Don't pay dr muffin top a nickel and someone feed this Greedy pig another twinky!

If we're going to get rid of Native American mascots (unless a nickname has the blessing of a tribe,Read More such as the Seminole Nation approving of the use of the name and logo by Florida State University), then what about nicknames that are disparaging. What comes to mind is the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Besides the ND logo, there is the logo of a leprechaun in a classic boxing stance. Does the average person still think that a person of Irish heritage settles disputes with a fistfight? I like to think that stereotype has fallen by the wayside. Yet, Notre Dame still keeps that offensive stereotype alive.

The name Redskins should have been done away with long ago. Imagine if there were such a thing asRead More Whiteskins, Blackskins, Beigeskins, Brownskins or Yellowskins how long would that have lasted? This land was stolen from Native Americans, that's bad enough, add a racist term and make the teams colors the color of red skin and it's horrible. Native American images have been long used as mascots and turned into cartoon characters. There is no respect behind it. It is a slap in the face to Native Americans and a reminder of the lives and land that was raped and pillaged. Then to top it off, people will wear their likeness and call it paying homage. Pretty twisted.
Matt B. June 20, 2014 at 10:18 pm
Does anyone here personally know a Native American that is offended by this, or is everyone suckingRead More from the teat of the liberal media that tells you this is wrong and offensive? Do you still feel "white guilt" from something that happened hundreds of years ago that YOU had nothing to do with? Elizabeth Warren says this is wrong so it must be (if you don't know the story behind why I brought up her name or who she is please don't respond to this). Twisted to wear a likeness of a group of others, what is next, get rid of Halloween? But this is the Lakeview Patch where people don't offend and everyone lives on Happy lane and farts rainbows, right? Pick any heritage and they have at one time been offended. This is every weekend that this horrible team name is shown on TV so its wrong? Do the REDSKINS offend you in any way shape or form in day to day life? If so, you my want to think about what is wrong with your way of thinking.

Parents ruin sports..
sportsnut July 14, 2014 at 06:39 am
Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.
CowDung July 23, 2014 at 09:20 am
sportsnut: Seems like a perfect opportunity for you to get involved in coaching... If nothingRead More else, becoming a coach will give you a voice in the league to lobby for equal playing time for all kids, and rotation of positions--particularly at the lower levels.

I appreciate the accomplishments of the Blackhawks as well, but they are getting plenty of coverageRead More these days, too, so calm down. This was just one little extra story because of this odd thing called the "cross town classic/cup". They're ALL just games, sports and they each have big followings. Yeesh.
