Glad to see limits (hopefully) being place on high school football. The research shows time andRead More time again the damage being done to the human brain after consistent hits to the head. Minimizing the risk seems like the natural and best thing to do.

I totally agree with limiting the chance of brain trauma. One thing we need to remember is thatRead More junior high and high school students' brains are still developing.

For those who think it is ok for your kid to get their brain throttled, do you support their use ofRead More drugs, too? Mixed messages.

It is a bit of a quantum leap to equate a rich celebrity cheating on their wife with some other goodRead More looking female who is either a willing sex partner, or a gold digger looking for a pay day, with a rapist. Rape is usually about revenge, power, anger, payback, etc. Tiger Woods and the others had sex with a lot of other good looking women because they could. Apples and oranges. And just curious Bob the dentist, how are you such an expert on rape? You admit to never having been raped, yet you are so quick to opine that just because somebody finds her story to have some credibility issues, you assume they are chauvinistic, misogynistic, and uneducated? Or have we arrived at the point where any female who makes an allegation should automatically be believed?

Desert Rat....Let me clarify..I am not equating rape with high risk sex...I was only saying thatRead More many men, in the celebrity life and otherwise, will risk everything, their careers, etc., to have sex....be it consensual or non consensual. As far as assuming that the women is telling the truth...I have no idea....without more info it would be presumptuous of me to assume anything...it is true, however, that many many men get away with rape, mostly recently Jameis Winston...the evidence against is hard to refute.....I would guess that very few rapes get reported as a percentage of total rapes...the statistics bare this out...and even fewer rapes, still, are prosecuted...thus, not too much fear of any athlete being sent to jail for rape. Mike Tyson is the only one I can think of though I am sure there must be others....

Parents ruin sports..
sportsnut July 14, 2014 at 04:39 am
Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.
CowDung July 23, 2014 at 07:20 am
sportsnut: Seems like a perfect opportunity for you to get involved in coaching... If nothingRead More else, becoming a coach will give you a voice in the league to lobby for equal playing time for all kids, and rotation of positions--particularly at the lower levels.

Cities like San Francisco and Oakland that already have stadium venues have been unable to supportRead More professional soccer how could Elk Grove ignore that fact and even consider such an absurd idea?
Elk Grove Laguna Forums July 22, 2013 at 11:12 am
It will all depend on the price of tickets and what it costs the city. The city needs to not loseRead More money on the stadium. Another factor is how successful can a team in Elk Grove be competing against franchises in New York and LA that have major sponsors? I have no doubt we could get 14,000 people to see a handful of games a year. I just don't see how the city recoups it's investment. Elk Grove is a soccer crazy town. You don't want a team to come here and then leave in a few years because they can't compete. We don't want to be the Sac Kings of the MLS and always be near the bottom.
Casey Barcomb July 26, 2013 at 09:03 am
Elk Grove would be an utter failure. No public transportation to the matches, awful traffic,Read More nothing to do there before or after the match (unless you like big box stores and restaurants). Sacramento is more centrally located and realistically located in order to draw fans from all of the suburbs. People from Rocklin, Roseville, and Davis aren't going to go to Elk Grove...The Elk Grove mayor is nuts.
Dennis Chandler January 15, 2013 at 02:31 pm
The Maloff's are nothing but liars and no class!!!! After all the years of support they don't evenRead More have the character or honesty to allow investors from Sacramento to buy the Kings!!! They are doing this just to spite the Sacramento fans and city!!!!! If someone doubled the price, the Maloff's out of hate would still sell to Seattle!!!!!
John January 15, 2013 at 06:12 pm
It was said that if Seattle lost it's NBA team that they too would never get on again? Here we are aRead More few short years later and they are in the running to buy the Kings? Have they built a new arena? does it rain less in Seattle than it did before? Absolutely not! So why then should we as Sacramentans believe that an ownership group (even the city itself much like Green Bay) couldn't put together a deal to attract another team to our city? We must remember that the Malloof's purchased this team wiuth the notion that they could one day move it to Las Vegas! Thats why the NBA held the All Star game there a while back. First time in the history of the NBA that the All Star game was held in a city that did not have an NBA franchise! We need to remember and not let this EVER happen again. Oh we will either keep this team or get another one but we must never be hoodwinked again!

Another testimonial bringing to light America's disproportionate obsession with (professional)Read More sports.
Victor Calderon December 5, 2012 at 06:04 pm
Having another pro sports team in the area would bring jobs and entertainment options for thoseRead More looking for them. What's wrong with that?
Bwood December 5, 2012 at 07:07 pm
You want entertainment options? Order up that Dish 250 package. You can watch all the MLS you wantRead More in HD, and it won't cost the city a thing. I don't care about KJ and Gary Davis - they have sports on the brain. KJ is still eating sour grapes over the arena debacle and now trying to figure out how to pay that $37,800 fine. Davis just cost EG a fortune to get a little ice skating rink up and running for a couple of months for a virtual handful of people. In the meantime, projects like the 99/Elk Grove Blvd. interchange modification and the infamous Promenade continue to simmer on a back burner...
Justin Cox November 30, 2012 at 10:32 pm
Note that there are no pop-ups or tents allowed in Hornet Stadium. It's likely to be rainy, so dressRead More accordingly.

HSPU, not safe I guess the same goes for OHS, or DL, or ..... hmmm just about everyother move in CF.Read More A WOD could induce a heart attack.... I have walked into my box and have done partner wod's with people I don't know including handstand walk/work. I am an amature.... I think that would be more risky because I would be more proned to making a mistake due to not having proper body awareness or strenght and letting pride get in my way. I spoke to some of the athletes and the ones I did thought that was a pretty fun and cool movement. I did not speak to all of them, in fact I have pictures of several of them laughing and putting thumbs signs. Risky yes possibly, but so are other movements that we do on a daily basis in CF.
John October 24, 2012 at 09:45 pm
All I know is he is the only gym in Elk Grove that is licensed to train people. Most personalRead More trainers are just people who like to work out and needed a job. My son works with him and has for qhite some time and I am very comfortable with that arrangement. He is also trusted by several of the local high school coaches to train their athletes as well? you don't just slip and fall into that type of curcumstance? Sounds like you have a beef with him? Perhaps you should give him a call at his gym and set up a time to discuss it and between the two of you you can figure out if his techniques are legit or not. Thanks for the concern though "john".
DJB October 25, 2012 at 02:21 am
I'll have to agree that this was just for fun. the athletes had nothing to gain. they were goodRead More sports about the funky WODS. The athlete's are prepared to do anything. They live to train hard always. CF is only unsafe if you don't know what your doing.
