As good as it is to be an American, the process of electing our leaders really makes you wonder if the “end” is worth the “means”.
A question received relative to the Bengals’ meltdown…bad behavior on a pair of players at the end of the game, and how would presidential candidate Donald Trump respond if we were walking in the shoes of the commissioner, Roger Goodell.
If the owner of the St. Louis Rams wants to take his team and move to Los Angeles…wants to extort the taxpayers in Missouri…I say let him. Imagine not what life would be like without NFL football; but what it would like with a little extra money in your pocket!
The country’s best female basketball player wears scarlet and gray for the Buckeyes; and I continue to say…she’d start for every area boys team, and embarrass a lot of them.
As an experienced observer I’ve grown to accept the losses. But it’s hard to rationalize the Bengals’ meltdown against the Steelers and think of

Did the BBWAA get the hall of fame voting right with Griffey and Piazza? It depends on perspective, and a criteria that no one can seem to nail down.
The Browns stunk again, and have already made the moves expected with a losing football franchise. They fired the coach and general manager. They should have started higher.

It’s time to put money making issues aside…and take stock in the issues of fan environment, behavior in the stands and on the field. For people sober enough to watch and consider, the NFL is at an embarrassing crossroads.
I have no answers. You have no answers. Errors in judgment where behavior’s concerned are as old and consistent as mankind himself. But this we all know….
While baseball thumbs its nose at reinstatement of Pete Rose, it continues to cozy up to the very sin for which it condemned its all-time hit king. It’s revealing, it’s hypocritical, and baseball (not Pete Rose) is the biggest “sinner” this time.
If Sunday’s loss to Pittsburgh brings back some old familiar pain…look up the term “Bengalized” and reflect, perhaps, on some past prophecy.
Had there been a Heisman up to and including 1843 — the year Mr. Webster died — you can bet he would have insisted on more precise parameters for those who select college football’s most prestigious award.
The film “Concussion” will come out in a couple of weeks and no doubt change some views of parents, players, and the public as to how football will be played in the future…and sooner than you think.
