The Federal Government needs to get the fuck out, and stay the fuck out of professional sports.



Seriously? This takes being a sore fucking loser to a whole new level.....



That fucking idiot better wise up, and realize he's got bigger problems than his beloved Alma Mater not getting to the NC because of a flawed system.

Anymore, college might as well be considered professional. The money and corruption that comes with college football is why I think that way.

I agree with him. Anybody playing on a top division 1 team who says they don't get paid in some form or fashion is lying or just not smart enough to take advantage of it.

I posted the e-mail I got from Joe Barton about this but deleted it after seeing this thread.

My first and only thought on the subject:
What a joke and waste of taxpayer's money...

"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have."
-Gerald Ford/Thomas Jefferson

"A Republic, if you can keep it"
- Benjamin Franklin

The way to peaceably remove elected officials who deviate from the constitution of the United States of America...

Yep, that's why. At least, in my opinion. I can't speak for anyone else.
