Some of you would've downplayed Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in 1947.
There are countless institutions in this country that straight white males have dominated for decades, professional sports is one of them.
It's difficult to see, from a straight white male perspective, how many...

[quote]And that happens to athletes a good bit, gay or not gay [/quote]
I'm sure there were athletes who were verbally abused before Jackie Robinson, but his abuse was at another level. I suspect this country has become more tolerant since then, but any time you're breaking a barrier, people are ...

Those who are trying to downplay the significance of this announcement, and those who harbor hatred and prejudice against gay people, this thread is not for you. I can't believe how many people there are who want to put this guy down or pretend that this isn't a huge step forward for the historicall...

I'm sad that this thread is turning into a conversation about ESPN's bias and how this affects Sam's draft slot.
I, for one, am incredibly happy that any pro athlete can have the courage to come out. It's not easy to be a gay man in professional sports, and I'm proud of Michael Sam for making thi...

Prices on StubHub are $188 for the two semifinal games, $153 for the championship game, and $344 for all three games.
These tickets are a mix of Terrace Corner and Terrace End.
Do you guys suggest I make the purchase right now? Or should I gamble, and wait to see if they drop as the tournament...
| More Sports Board|| Best time to buy Final Four tickets? - tigersandjets on 2/8/12 at 2:31 pm|
I'd like to see some March Madness games in the Supedome, regardless of who's playing. But I'm wondering if I should wait for prices to drop, or if now is the best time to grab tickets.
Right now, tickets are starting at $190 for the two semifinal games, $147 for just the championship game, and $...
| Coaching Changes|| re: Schottenheimer Named Bama OC? - tigersandjets on 1/13/12 at 12:39 am|
As a huge Jets fan (and LSU fan, see my username), I could not be happier by this news: Every LSU fan should be pulling for Bama to hire Schottenheimer. It would be like killing two birds with one stone. Bama would get an extremely predictable, stubborn, uncreative offensive coordinator who overcomp...

...if we win this year?
Only a handful of players who transferred, or left early for the draft, like Patrick Peterson, never won a NC.
But basically, any LSU player since 2003 has had an opportunity to be on a NC team. And in a 10-year span, more than 90% of our players will have won a NC....

| More Sports Board|| Rondo Playing with One Arm - tigersandjets on 5/8/11 at 11:18 pm|
Most incredible in-game comeback of all time? I'd say it ranks as one of the most insane athletic feats in sports history. The fact that it was even allowed to happen was insane in itself. Rondo's one-handed steal and layup almost brought me to tears. In an already electrifying first two rounds, the...
