In The New Silver and Black, Jim Trotter writes, "No franchise in American sports has been more closely associated with its owner than the Raiders were with [Al] Davis." Really? I think anybody who has heard of George Steinbrenner might disagree.

Dropping the Ball
It's ironic that Tiger Woods was chastised for damaging the integrity of the game (Aussie, Rules) by not withdrawing from the Masters after unintentionally signing an incorrect scorecard, while Adam Scott was praised despite using a long putter, the same club that's likely to be banned for giving players an unfair advantage and damaging the integrity of the game.

Yes, Tiger's drop was caught by a TV viewer. But almost all of Tiger's shots are televised. Until all shots of every tournament are shown, it seems unfair to single out one player for such an infraction.

As the parent of a youth hockey player, I thought Brian Cazeneuve's article (Chris Pronger Has a Headache) presents an unfortunate contrast. The story describes measures taken by the NHL to reduce concussions, yet a caption for a photo of Pronger delivering a high stick to Dustin Brown's head praises Pronger's "hard-hitting abandon." Perhaps concussions will be reduced when goon play ceases to be glorified.
