If I could get rid of one thing in sports...

    It'd be the "debates" over who is the "greatest ever". Is Federer the greatest ever? Are the New England Patriots the Greatest Ever?

    The NBA talk is particularly odorous... in my lifetime, I have heard from TV/radio/publications/interwebs the following persons called the Greatest Player Ever.

    *Moses Malone
    *Larry Bird
    *Magic Johnson
    *Michael Jordan

    When they win their first/next title, it will be LeBron or Kobe.

    ESPN, with their Grand Canyon-sized slew of programming that isn't actually sports, seems to thrive on it.

    Its so useless, and so fucking ponderous, man. [/Casey Kasem]

    You sure have a strong opinion about not having an opinion.

    I realize they are an entry in bad broadcasting, boom, but if you could get rid of only one ...

    I was hoping they could be viewed as 1 entity but if it had to be one it would be Sterling.

    If Federer lost it would be "Is Federer done?"

    If Tiger lost yesterday it would be "Is Tiger done?"

    I'd make all post-season playoff series best of five.

    Geez, there's so many, I'm not even going to try to just name one:

    * Player agents
    * Free agency
    * The New York Yankees
    * Dickhead Vitale
    * John Madden (getting close here)
    * Tommy Lasorda (I keep thinking we're rid of the sumbitch)
    * Golf stories that begin, "Tiger Woods was _____ back of the leader Friday after the first round ...," not even giving a shit as to who the actual leader is
    * The BCS
    * Any poll that anyone gives a shit about. Their not fact-based -- they're opinion (and often biased)
    * Independent colleges
    * Ties in ice hockey and soccer
    * Sports cards that cost more than $3 a pack
    * The city of Los Angeles
    * Pro wrestling promoters pushing their sons (in-law) down everyone's throats (sports entertainment)
    * West-coast games starting at 10 p.m. on the east coast
    * Baseball schedules where everyone plays within their own division a gazillion times
    * The umpires' version of the strike zone
    * Having to pay extra to watch a regular-season game
    * Paying to park at stadiums

    That said, I like the designated hitter, instant replay and the wild card

    Steroids and performance enhancing drugs

    Everything else is Sosa home run behind.
