Brett Favre Retires 2010, Again – Do you Believe It?

Brett Favre retires, again – do you believe him? Favre, the famed quarterback best known for his decades long stint with the Greenbay Packers was most recently in the Minnesota Vikings uniform. Showcasing that he still had it in him, he almost lead the Vikings to last year’s Super Bowl. Such would have been an awesome end to his career – leading his former team’s arch nemesis to the Super Bowl. Oh well. That didn’t happen.

So now, Favre is hanging up his NFL jersey and retiring. He is giving up a $13 million contract in doing so.

Many do not believe that Favre is actually going through with the whole retirement thing.  The 40 year old quarterback has been one of the league’s greatest. With the #1 overall draft pick, also a quarterback, snatching a $50 million contract – many think Favre is just trying to get more money.

After all, the $50 million man likely won’t set foot on a field this year. Favre will. We will just have to see how this all pans out.

Sam Bradford: Contract, Salary, Jersey Top NFL Fan Discussions

Sam Bradford was the #1 overall NFL Draft pick for the Rams. The Sam Bradford contract and salary topped the NFL Fan discussions. Sam Bradford’s jersey and girlfriend are also hot topics, as everyone cannot get enough of this shocking football star.  In fact, the Rams paid a guaranteed $50 million to ensure that their #1 pick signed with them. Of course, this means that even if he ends up flopping he will get to laugh all the way over to the bank.

The Rams think that he’s worth the $50, and will become a bargain. If he’s the franchise quarterback, they could be right.  Then again, he injured his shoulder easily and has never set foot in a pro game. He’s got the talent, so it will all depend on how he gets trained up over the next couple of years.

Sam Bradford is #8 for the Rams, and a picture of his jersey is attached.  Currently, he is rumored to be dating Kelsey Kurtz, although there aren’t any recent articles that I have found that indicate that they are still together.  Could the $50 million man be an eligible bachelor too?

Kay Cowher: Cancer Causes Death at Age 54

Kay Cowher lost her battle against skin cancer at the age of 54.  Her death has affected the Pittsburgh Steelers to the core, as she is the wife of their former coach, Bill.  The former NFL coach indicated that his wife was his “backbone” and is devastated by the loss. Bill Cowher is now a CBS analyst.

Kaye has a twin sister named Faye, and the two played basketball in college at North Carolina State.  Both went into the Woman’s Basketball League – the WBL – playing for New York and New Jersey.  The late sister was one of the league’s most notable players.

Both met while attending NCSU, and Bill proposed in 1981.  He resigned from his post as coach of the Steelers in 2007 when they moved back to North Carolina, as he wished to watch his daughters play basketball.

Kay Cowher will be sadly missed by not only her family and friends, but also the sports community.  She was a strong athlete, a mother, and a wife to an NFL coach.

The fight is said to be taking place in Las Vegas on November 13.  It’s bound to be a huge fight that will rake in millions of dollars for both fighters. Maybe after the Pac Man beats out Margarito, Mayweather will be ready to fight.

Reggie Bush Scandal – Gamblers Are Feeling the Heat

The Reggie Bush scandal centers on the football player’s Heisman Trophy and USC having its entire season wiped away.  There is one thing about the scandal that is receiving a lot of press – gambling.  The USC’s whole season was thrown out because of various violations, meaning that people that voted in favor the team could end up owing money back.

However there’s another aspect of this story.  Should the gambler’s be left holding the bag? Should the past be uprooted? After all the true games WERE won by the team.  The betters didn’t take into consideration various violations that may or may not occur within the team.

The gambling wins should stay as is. It would be far too difficult to go back and re-calculate all the winnings and losses experienced by everyone who placed a bet.

On the other hand, there are those who bet against USC – and find that it is not fair that they lost their money on a team that was clearly violating various regulations.  To these people, they think they should be vindicated, even if it means that USC itself needs to pay them back (good luck with that.)

So what do you think about the Reggie Bush Scandal? Should gamblers get their money back??
