    You have to forgive Queen. She's never been to New York before, so she wasn't sure the distance to Canada from there.

    Well, you need to check everyone when going across a boarder...especially when there are terrorists trying to get in and people smuggling shit back and forth (cheap alcohol into Canada and Cuban cigars into USA)....its serious business.

    A few white people heading to and from a football game is usually pretty quick and not likely to get flagged.

    Lol.... upstate NY is a whole different face of NY than the southeast NYC area. Its pretty contrasting. All the white people there look the same.

    Well our basketball team didn't so much leave as get stolen. Not that the idiots that run Seattle helped at all.

    Yes, the Mariners have been putting up another epic fail of a season. Going to the games is still fun though, in my opinion. The whole Griffey thing was handled horribly and the clubhouse never recovered. Not that we were hitting before that either.

    For what is worth the Mariners aren't going anywhere. I'd put anything on that. Nintendo isn't going to move the Mariners from Seattle. When there almost moved before, it was because of the ownership.

    The reason Seattle didn't stand a chance to keep the Sonics was they were backed into a corner about a new arena, Safeco and Qwest are still very new buildings. Although it is ironic that now that the Sonics left an upgrade to Key Arena would work.

    I guess the reason it doesn't seem as bad, is Jim Mora is no longer our coach. I really, really dislike that guy, so not having to listen to his ramblings every post-game is good news. I'm not real convinced of what Pete Carroll will do, but so far he has backed up his declarations, and it looks like we accept that we are rebuilding, something that wasn't as evident under the previous regime.

    Jim Mora talked about improving our running game, but kept running our least productive back(Julius Jones-whom I've grown to dislike so much I cut him from my Franchise in Madden). Pete Carroll speaks of improving the running game, he drafts a LT, Alex Gibbs, and takes a flyer on Leon Washington. That gives me some optimism that we might turn it around sooner rather than later, but not likely in 2010.

    Such is life as a fan of Seattle Sports, however, and I am used to it. The good news is our division is so bad that it will most likely be us or the 49ers that go and lose in the first round of the playoffs this year.

    Ok so I'm gonna totally sound like a girl right now.....in normal people terms, what does a lockout mean? I've read it but it doesn't register.

    a lockout is when the owners stop the players from plying, because they think they are getting payed too much this is going to happen in the nfl because they have no collective bargaining agreement after this season so their will be no salary cap and the owners dont want the nfl to get like MLB so they are going to simply lock the players out until they agree on a new deal which as it looks now won't be happening and if you think it's going to hurt the nfl teams well it wont because they teams will still make 5 billion due to the fact they still get paid from the networks no matter if their is a lockout, or not (the networks must feel like dumb asses for making that deal)

    I don't think the players really want 18 games and I understand why

    So the owners literally lock the players out in order that the players will take a pay cut..........so if the players don't agree, then the season won't happen? Well that sucks.........r u serious? So it will be all on the players............I mean if there isn't a season, then the players don't get paid............ugh


    From the sounds of things, this will happen after this season.


    Thanks for explaining that to me.

    yes and no it is really on both sides to come to a fair deal like maybe change how contracts work, because the NFL is the only one of the 4 major American sports that does not have a guaranteed contract so when u see john doe signs a 5 year 44 million dollar deal well if he is cut because of injury, or what ever he does not get paid (that's also why guaranteed money is always a big thing in NFL contracts) also I think health insurance for after you retire is something they are working on. right now you only get five years coverage after you retire, but the effects of an NFL career are not shown until well after five years and they should copy other sports like MLB and cover for life

    I think if a new deal is reached we will also see a change in the rookie contracts and I am all for it, because there is no way a rookie should be making more than a proven NFL player I mean sam braford makes more than tom brady that is just wrong

    hectis with the knowledge!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks man.

    I agree with the rookies..........u gotta earn that money.

    The reason I had asked this question is cause someone asked Jay Glazer (love him) how likely a lockout would be and he answered very likely............oy
