Does anyone out there think Tiger Woods should have played the last nine holes of the 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach with just his wedge and a putter? I doubt it. But the Patriots should sit on their leads? I am a die-hard Cleveland Browns fan and hope we get a rematch with New England in the playoffs.

The same judgment that keeps athletes from purposely injuring an opponent comes into play in regard to running up the score. We want these people to be decent human beings off the field, yet on the field we should allow gloating, intentional infliction of emotional distress and other actions that are generally condemned as character flaws?

You've overanalyzed Paul Allen (The Quiet Owner, Dec.�3). He owns the Blazers and the Seahawks for one reason: It's fun.

Special thanks for mentioning the CFL (Players, Nov. 26), however brief the item may have been. The league may be dwarfed by the NFL, but it has produced remarkable talent, held 95 (and counting) Grey Cup championships and has pro football's alltime leading passer in Damon Allen.
