Sports and The Relentless Pursuit For Competition

As it is now a days alot of people just cannot stand watching sports, some of whom loved sports when they were little. Some people say they just grew out of the love for the game. Some claim they just don't have time to follow sports anymore, but most when it comes down to it would sit down and enjoy a game or two.

I believe the catalyst to getting people to watch games is beer; because with beer in ones system their nerves are numbed enough too sit down an watch a game. You must realize that deep down almost everyone can appreciate sports in some manner but most get turned off because of many reasons. Most of which I believe is frustration with plays, calls, or other things pertaining to the game which they might not understand.

I say it all has to do with foul calls myself or in some cases lack thereof foul calls. So using this NBA season and some other games throught the NCAA this season as examples. So what are the referees thinking or the NBA an NCAA for that matter. I mean for example the NCAA is a TAX EXEMPT organization who recieves tax dollars through state universities in order to setup a supposed fair system for schools too put their teams in and compete. We know they must be getting billions of dollars that can be wasted and probably are in some way.

So my question is do you think that something can be done to improve the officiating or is it fine how it is?
Also should we promote the idea that we should do away with private pseudo bureaucratic sports organizations or just establish new ones?

Read The Fine Print

For those of you who might have had the time to read in to the alledged allegations againts the University of Memphis you probably came across a few interesting facts one being the fact that the NCAA claimed that one Memphis Basketball player had someone take his ACT test for them. If you think I am misstaken please explain and let me know who says otherwise about the alledged ACT fraudulance and ACT is not a typo people in the 300 or so page document Memphis released ACT is used far to much to be a typo. I find it appalling that the media or whom ever started this Memphis news fiasco started using the word SAT instead of the ACT which was said to be fraudulent, simply because as the facts stood the player accused of cheating never had his ACT cleared by the NCAA clearing house.

Memphians and Memphis fans be strong like we always have been and try and see through the media/fanboy BS, have faith that sometime in the coming years Memphis will eventually be freed of these steriotypical burdens.

Memphis finally catches a break

Official the ncaa has cleared Matt Simpkins to play as of december 4, 2008. Now we await whether they clear Angel Garcia who i believe john calipari might be trying to convince to leave, that mostly has to do with a recruit/scholarship issue the memphis tigers have coming up next year.

Also C.Henry should be ready to practice soon. I cannot wait to watch the Chris Henry, Willie Kemp, Wesley Witherspoon rotation, that should be interesting to see who performs the best in that possible point guard rotation. I hope my boy Willie comes around and shuts up his critics, he really seems to have confidence issues at times like he is simply psycheing himself out, but when comes down to it he has come through.
