    The Yankees have a better chance of winning the World Series than the Jets do of winning another game, no less the Super Bowl.

    To those who claim the Yankees "bought" all those championships, with huge salaries.....It should be noted that "Big Bucks" George Steinbrenner and his group have only owned the team since 1973. By then, the Yankees had already won 20 World Series Championships.

    Yankees were big money long before Steinbrenner. Always were, always will be.

    Most of that "Big Money" is spent on players like:

    Bernie Williams
    Derek Jeter
    Andy Pettite
    Jorge Posada
    Alfonso Soriano
    Mariano Rivera

    Hmmmmmmmmmm, a trend? Yeah, they're all homegrown talent.

    Now toss in Giambi, Clemens and Mussina and you have three Big Money free agents aquired by the Yankees. Not any more than any other team, except Tampa Bay.

    Matsui, you say? Can't go there, he's competing for Rookie of the Year, but I won't go so far as to call him homegrown.

    Rugby players do not wear pads or helmets, and they play 80 minutes of Rugby.

    Strangely enough it takes 80 minutes for the game to be played, oh thats right, they don't swap teams every 15 seconds.

    Awww, 229, you let the cat out of the bag too early. You have to go deeper in the argument, then ask people what teams those guys played for before they became Yankees. THEN go for the facts.

    But you are right on the money. Two other thoughts

    1. Clemens, Giambi, Mussina and Matsui have earned every penny they are paid.

    2. You mean Tampa Bay, as in "Thank God for the Detroit Tigers being worse than us", Tampa Bay?

    I mean Tampa Bay as in "A-Rod makes more than the whole team"

    As for the Tigers, one of our mis-guided Met fans at work are praying they beat out the 1962 Mets for the worst season in history.

    Speaking of the Mets, I think, as of February, they had the second highest payroll in Baseball, they're dead last in thier division.

    Number three in salary, Texas. Again, dead last in thier division.

    It takes more than high priced "talent" to win.

    THE FORWARDS

    There are eight forwards. They take part in scrums, lineouts, rucks, and mauls - essentially everything that is meaningful in the game. The close physical work necessary for the forwards engenders a sense of comradeship not shared by the prancing, self-centered and effeminate backs. The game has evolved, thank goodness, with multi-phase possession allowing the forwards to demonstrate their running ability with the ball.

    Props and Hookers

    The front row is the cauldron, the foundation for all good rugby play. The front row is noted for their power and good looks, like no necks, battered ears, and S-shaped noses. Such players are noted for their intelligence and longevity well into their forties.

    Second Row

    The second row is the engine room where the power flows. The second row - or lock forward - is tall, with plenty of leverage strength in the legs. He must be productive in the lineouts as a jumper or supporter. Mobility is added plus. The second row is much appreciated by the front row for their power in the scrummage but they are generally not as good looking as the front row.

    The loose forwards

    The loose forwards include the #8 and the flankers. The loose forwards are respected by the front row for their mobility, fitness, defense and support work. The loosey must have tremendous fitness and ball fetching instincts which are not completely understood or trusted by the props and hooker, who are perfectly content to scrummage all day for the ball.

    The Scrum-half

    The little scrum half provides the ball to the backs when the forwards are damn well ready for the strutting backs to knock it forward. The forwards have grudging respect for the scrum-half because he trys hard and is not afraid to get dirty with the rest of the scrummies. The wise scrum-half will drink and buy beers for the scrummies to maintain his favoured position with the forwards.

    THE BACKS

    The Flyhalf

    It is rumoured that the Fly has the best vision, hands, kicking ability, and overall tactical decision making ability on the side. The forwards do not understand or trust this individual. The hard-working scrummies generally expect and anticipate a knock forward from the fly so they can have the pleasure of another scrum-down.

    The Centres

    These hombres are supposed to be deadly tacklers, with strong running instincts and good hands. Alas, the centers are lumped in there with the prancing flyhalf. If the fly doesn't knock on, surely one of the centers will muff it up so the scrummies can experience the joy and satisfaction of another scrum-down.

    The Fullback and Wingers

    These guys may as well be from Mars. They are allegedly fast with excellent striking ability. They are supposed to score lots of trys, catch the high ball, and counter attack with flair. But the stark reality (well understood by the forwards) is that the fullback and wingers prance and preen more than the inside backs. They don't get dirty and are always playing with their hair and pulling on their collars. In fact their sexual orientation has been called into question on numerous occasions. Some props think fullbacks and wingers are "real purdy."

    ___________________

    Why do people tend to hate Australian Rugby players on sight?
    Because it saves time.

    ___________________

    There's a man sitting in the front row at the Rugby World Cup Finals, but amazingly, there's an empty seat beside him. Another man spots it, goes up to him and says: "Do you mind if I sit here?"
    "No, not at all," replies the first man. "It's my wife's seat, but she's just died."
    "So why didn't you get one of your family to come," asks the second man out of curiosity.
    "They're all at the funeral."

    Jeff Weaver is a David Wells wannabe head case. Torre is foolish for thinking he can snap out of it. I hope he is released at the end of the season.
