I'm not buying this "new-look" LeBron James. It still seems that everything he does, from tweeting the hoodie photo in support of Trayvon Martin to his current mea culpa for the Decision, is a calculated attempt to elicit acceptance and admiration from the public.

I don't think James understands that many of us basketball fans do not care if he is rejuvenated (Meet the Rejuvenated, Revitalized LeBron) or if he gets a championship ring. We're still reeling over the fact that he wasn't a stand-up guy in Cleveland and didn't stick around and bring a title to his hometown.

Call Them Winners
I found the Biggest Losers title that you used for your recent wrestling column (INSIDE OLYMPICS) to be offensive. The four athletes mentioned in the story (Kurt Angle, Henry Cejudo, Rulon Gardner and Cael Sanderson) are all Olympic gold medalists who, for various reasons, are not competing in the London Games this summer. Still, they have achieved greatness in their sport and should be respected for their accomplishments.

All NFL, All the Time
Phil Taylor's column about the oversaturation of NFL coverage (POINT AFTER) is the most accurate criticism of the sport that I have read in a long time. Football shows are now on television year-round. After the Super Bowl, I expect to see more NBA, NCAA basketball and baseball coverage. Instead I get countless news stories on the NFL draft, footage of practices and rundowns of the off-season plans of mundane teams like the Bills and the Bengals. This overexposure is ruining the game.
