    Hope he doesn't get fired for this. Great announcer but, really dumb decision by him.

    He blew a .08 and a .09 in two breathalyzer tests. That's almost nothing.

    Oh, no. I hope he doesn't get fired. The guy's been the voice of primetime games. If he's calling it, it's usually a big game.

    An occasional thread about the actual sport of football every now and then would be nice. Or has this sight has turned into a full on gossip column?

    It's the offseason. I don't know what you want, there's not much to talk about, especially post-draft when we get into May and June.

    I'm sorry that your thread starting privileges have been taken away. Perhaps you could petition Ian to get them back....

    Thank you for your concerns about my well being. I have, in fact, been posting less often lately. With the spring here, I've been extra busy getting the yard and garden ready for the summer, on top of my usual activities (work and the like). It's a tiring time, but a fun and rewarding time, as well.

    Again, petition Ian. He's always been a square shooter, from what I've seen. I'm sure he'll give you a second chance with thread starting privileges.

    It's a shame supposed smart,famous, rich people don't know how to call a cab. Such a dumb move by Michaels. Everybody makes mistakes, nobody is perfect. I hope his career isn't affected.

    I want to see the Patriots pick up Tebow once he is released. Wait, wrong thread? Oops.

    Wow that sucks. Not excusing drinking and driving, of course, but wow.

    Goodell announced a 4 game suspension until he realized that would leave Collingsworth alone in the booth.

    I'm excusing it. It's like a couple beers. I practically blow that during my morning commute.

    Almost nothing? That's over the limit.

    Correct, it is at and minutely above an arbitrarily low limit.

    A good defense lawyer will get this thrown out due to the inaccuracies of the machine. But, the point is, never blow, never do field sobriety, even if you think you're ok.

    I've heard the same from attorneys and judges.

    That's too bad. What's the limit in the US? Here in Canada, .08 is legal.

    .08, which as has been pointed out is insanely low.
