The Cubs are fined a whole lot of money

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on July 23, 2008

A 100 years of disappointment and no title apparently led the Chicago Cubs preparing for the future while violating a couple of baseball rules.

Those rules include failing to report a signing to MLB’s New York offices and putting the player on the field before receiving approval for the signing from MLB offices.

The Cubs’ fine for these violations is around $500,000. (snicker)

Apparently the MLB higherups apparently didn’t believe Cubs people were completely forthcoming regarding their actions in the case when questioned about them.

Baseball disallows teams from making pre-draft deals, but it isn’t known whether such an early deal is related to this case. However, the amount of the fine makes it clear how displeased pissed off MLB”s powers are about the situation.

For some reason I hate this team.

Melee at the end of WNBA game ends in ejections

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on July 23, 2008

The WNBA has been struggling for television viewers and reverence since its inception, finally has a good old cat fight, thus giving me a reason to write about it.

Tennessee Goddess Candace Parker and the Los Angeles Sparks score a win over the Detroit Shock. Unfortunately, it will be the final five seconds that everyone else is going to remember.

Goddess Parker was one of three players ejected along with Detroit assistant coach Rick “Bad Boy” Mahorn after a somewhat entertaining melee with 4.6 seconds left.

“To be honest, I don’t recall exactly what happened,” said Goddess Parker, who led Los Angeles with 21 points. “I’ll have to watch the tape.”

The cat fight started moments after Goddess Parker and Detroit’s Cheryl Ford had to be separated after Ford fouled Parker.

On the next possession, Goddess Parker got tangled up with Detroit’s Plenette Pierson and fell to the ground. As she was getting up, Pierson in bitch mode & intentionally ran into her, setting off the melee.

Goddess Parker threw a punch at Pierson before being tackled by Detroit’s Deanna Nolan. Players and coaches from both teams joined in, and Mahorn knocked Lisa Leslie to the court at one point.

“I was trying to protect the whole game, the integrity of the game,” he said. “The WNBA is very special to me because I have four daughters. I don’t even raise my hand to them, and I would never push a woman. This game, I love this game too much.”

“Rick Mahorn is known as a peacemaker, from even the brawl we had here with Indiana,” Detroit coach Bill Laimbeer said. “He went out there to get people off the pile and to get people to stop the confrontation. That’s who he is, that’s what he does.”

All in all I like Mahorn but I don’t think he was playing piece maker I think his emotions got the better of him. The last thing Mahorn was known for when he was playing the game was a piece maker.

Keeping the piece…nothing to see here folks

However Los Angeles coach Michael Cooper feels Mahorn was trying to stop the fight.

“I think Rick was trying to play peacemaker, but he’s just too big,” Sparks coach Michael Cooper said. “I was only trying to grab my players, and I didn’t see exactly what happened, but he apparently gently tried to push Lisa away.”

DeLisha Milton-Jones shoved and punched Mahorn after the incident with Leslie and was ejected, along with Mahorn, Goddess Parker and Pierson. Nolan and Shannon Bobbitt each received technical fouls.

“That was unfortunate, but things like that happen in basketball sometimes,” Milton-Jones said. “The league is going to have to decide what kind of action to take.”

Ford sprained her right knee while trying to restrain Pierson and left the floor in a wheelchair. Her status is unknown.

“I’m glad that none of our players got hurt, and I hope that Cheryl is OK,” Cooper said.

The brawl marred a key victory for Los Angeles, which came in having lost four of five.

Yes Ladies Brett F**re is Cute but is he Smart?

Huge Drama Queen F**re

Ladies you know that QB in Green Bay that is acting like a Richard-Head his name is Brett F**re? (I’m still not typing out his name.)

Well, although many of you would kill your hubbies and first born to touch him, he might not be the brightest bulb on the Packer Christmas tree.

The Packers are claiming they have some rather incriminating evidence that backs their claims of tampering by inappropriate dialogue” against the Vikings. You know little things like say phone records.

According to the Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Packer Insider:

“Favre had continued to use a Packers-issued cell phone and that when the team checked the phone records it found “repeated calls to coach Brad Childress and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.”

The possibility of Favre having used a phone issued by the Packers had been speculated on last week after the Associated Press reported that Green Bay informed the NFL it felt “an investigation of the phone records would show more than ‘normal contact’ between the Vikings and Favre, even before he formally asked for his release to play for another team.”

If this turns out to be true it’s important because Childress and Favre have no prior relationship, so discussions between the two of them would be suspicious, to say the least. Especially if the communications occurred after multiple days of multiple discussions between Favre and Bevell.

With all the money he makes he has to use a cell phone paid for by the team. What a dumb ass!

If this is true, F**re is going to come out looking terrible. He just better not try to explain it away with his “I’m a straight-shooter good guy” victim routine and think he’ll still have public opinion on his side. If so, he’ll find out, just like Roger Clemens did, that no matter how much you think the fans love you, they can smell BS from miles away. Try and feed it to them and they’ll turn on you fast.

This is just getting uglier and sloppier as we go.
