Jay - Mrs Sportsfan just told me about the Copper Hill youth football league. Wow. The NFL issues, Lance, Jamies, Pete Rose, Penn State, MLB PED's. I think I need you to talk me off the ledge. For the mailbag...how about a Rushmore of what's good and pure about sports?

Jay - mailbag follow up. I'm sick, just sick about this. The Ray Rice situation didn't just happen. This has been a pattern of behavior in society (not just professional sports) for a long time. Whether Ray Lewis committed two murders or not (for the record the legal system said there wasn't enough evidence to convict), the issue is the league (and not just the NFL) didn't take a strong stand. Society didn't take a strong stand. Ray Lewis is a hero in Bawlmer. If there was a video of me striking Mrs Sportsfan, I'd be fired from my firm, my retired Marine brother in law would kick my hiney, and my Dad would take a chunk out of whatever was left over. The NFL, NBA, MLB, NCAA, and high school sports associations have to set the example. Even if it means letting a premiere athlete go. The NFL's delayed moral indignation is just sickening.

Jay - For the mailbag. Ray Rice got what he deserved. Karma happens. Now that the NFL and the Ravens have each grown a set, will they go back to 2000 and deal with the incident in the ATL after the Super Bowl that involved another member of the NFL and the Ravens? It's troubling that he's considered a hero when two men died that night. Just wondering...

Jay - Let's change it up a bit for the mailbag. Let's call it a mailbag challenge. No. Not an ice bucket challenge. I recall your have a degree in English from AU. Can you publish a football haiku in the Friday mailbag? Bonus points for a Rushmore of haiku. Have a great week.

In 10 years, the best way to describe college football is "a disaster of biblical proportions. Real wrath of God type stuff. Fire and brimstone. Rivers and seas boiling. Forty years of darkness. Human sacrifice. Dogs and cats living together. Mass hysteria." and that's all I've got to say about that...

After reading Junction Boys several years ago, I'm pretty sure Bear Bryant would be arrested today for treating his players the same way. I'm not excusing bad behavior by a coach. I'm just saying that it's a different world today. My guess is fans and players will put up with poor behavior if the coach is winning. Just sayin not judging. Headed to Louisville this weekend. I gotta hunch about Sergio...

Jay - The week after vacation is tough. No sand, no co-colas with lunch, gotta wear shoes all day. For the mailbag - Can the Broncos win a Superbowl before Peyton Manning retires?

Still researching the theory of co-colas tasting better with toes in the sand. Running low on samples. With 2 days of research remaining do I restock fully or switch to the nectar of agave?
