MLB is looking to suspend A-Rod for 211 games due to PED use. While A-Rod works on his appeal, I headed over to the NY Times to call BS on how the league has handled the entire thing. [NY Times Room for Debate: Alex Rodriguez Is An Easy Target]

Riley Cooper’s racist tirade against a security guard at a Kenny Chesney concert sparked controversy and Eagles QB Michael Vick tried to set a forgiving tone. Unfortunately, I felt his response was a bit…incomplete. [ Michael Vick Shows Leadership on Riley Cooper but Is It The Right Kind?]

I made a mistake one day and read an article by Jason Whitlock. Naturally, I disagreed with his opinions on Jay Z entering the sports game. [ Jason Whitlock Gets It Horribly Wrong on Jay Z]

[Seau suicide linked to post-career trauma?] highlighted my experience with Joe Cowley Chicago Sun Times columnist and sexist creep.  Readers will remember Cowley has the one who wrote a crap piece on Matt Forte and let off a series of sexist remarks when I got his name wrong. Boo hoo. Well he apparently offended a baseball writer not even a month after he let loose on me. [Joe Cowley: The Best Sexist Around, Nothing's Gonna Ever Keep Him Down]

For I lamented the hysterical lead up to the NFL draft, during which players are unfairly attacked and generally dragged through the mud in the interest of drawing in readers and helping teams drive down player values.
