I was reading about today's MLB Hall of fame inductees and noticed Greg Maddux got 97% of the vote from writers. Statistically he was the most consistent pitcher of his era with 355 career wins and never was connected to PEDs (Clemens)
With that said, how can any voter ego watched baseball betwee...

I know it hasn't aired a second of programming and still has about 7 weeks until it does. However there are still a ton of cable/directv providers who aren't on board yet. I know that Dish and U-Verse are on board and people can switch to them.
With that said, why is it taking the other big boys...

China has close to 1.4 billion people and excell in Olympic sports. Why are the Japanese and South Korean teams so much far superior to them?
Is soccer just not popular in China? Do they have any players who play in Europe?
Do they not have sports academies for soccer ?

Croom was terrible but always managed to get at least one upset against an SEC team.
And also, Bert is a lot fatter than Croom.

I just don't get why companies like DirecTV and Comcast refuse to get things worked out especially in Big SEC markets and states.
Could they offer it as part of a sports package if they refuse to include it in their basic packages? Similar to the NFL red zone? Could they allow people to choose t...
