Re: “Sports can bind parent to child when nothing else can

I'll never forget the pure joy when I saw my then 3 year old daughter sing "Chelios is a sissy" for three hours straight when we would play the Wings. She is now a 10 year old with a special talent for heckling Blackhawks fans.

Re: “Indiana backtracked on an anti-gay bill in large part because of big-money sporting events. Take heed, Tennessee.

Um, even without the Final Four being in Indy, the outrage over Pence's decision to sign that law would have been really really really loud. It wasn't so much the NCAA's appeal to Pence as it was the combined voices of Eli Lilly, the Bloomington community, Salesforce, Gen Con and other contributors to the IN economy that contributed to the national outrage. Within hours it became incredibly apparent that the IN economy and the state's ability to retain and attract top talent to its state institutions and major business entities was going to be negatively impacted.

Re: “The fact that the Tennessee Titans needed a shake-up (and a wake-up) is no profound analysis

Not until Rushton Webster is fired will the Titans be a legitimate contender . Rushton is the worst General manager in the NFL. Why Tommy Smith doesn't see that is unbelievable . Ken Whisenhut has won a total of four games combined in the last two years he has coached . Another red flag. Players aren't coming here because they know Whisenhut and Webster will be fired at years end after another repeat of last year . Titans are at the rock bottom right now !! I am a fan but I want results and progress being made . We are going backwards !!!!

He's channeling Dennis Miller. I quit going to public stadium events years ago because the powers that be, at times, started playing loud annoying music over the loudspeakers. Does that still happen anywhere?

The understaffed gates was the last straw for me. Never paying for another Titans game.

Some people will not come back to LP Field till there is a local ownership group in place. Probably never gonna happen but I'm cool with never watching the Titans again.

You can have latest tech.,most comfortable seats,even swimming pools (Jaguars) in the stadium,but if the team sucks nobody's coming to spend $200.00.

Re: “What happens when Kevin Stallings can't exceed even modest expectations at Vanderbilt?

Somehow, this column completely overlooked the most salient point about this Vanderbilt team: They are one of the youngest, least experienced squads in the country. There are actually people who measure such things, and on their scale Vanderbilt ranks as younger than Kentucky's eternally freshman/sophomore team. The Commodores start three freshmen and a sophomore. Eight of the nine players who are part of the regular rotation are freshmen and sophomores.

Young teams, even talented ones, are notoriously inconsistent, and that's what Vandy fans have seen this year. One night, they go to Lexington and play lights out against Kentucky; another night, they're awful and barely lose to Georgia.

Another point that anybody who has followed the program this year would know: Kevin Stallings isn't remotely in danger of losing his job. Nor should he be. If he was on the hot seat at all (and it really wasn't very hot), it would have been last year -- the second consecutive disappointing season in which unexpected departures and defections had left the team with subpar talent and experience. This year, Stallings has a very young team with lots of promise for the next two seasons, and he has another excellent class of recruits coming in that should complement the other players. He ain't getting fired.

Re: “What happens when Kevin Stallings can't exceed even modest expectations at Vanderbilt?

The problem with pieces like this is that the deadline often looms before another game is played. Not that Tuesday's win against Donovan's Florida team was a thing of beauty, it was a gutsy effort by a young team that managed to stave off several challenges. The loss at Kentucky a couple of weeks ago was also a valiant effort by a team that is seriously mis-matched against the presumptive best team in the country.

There are still many games to be played, so any attempt by anyone to serve up Stallings' head on a silver platter should wait until the appropriate time, not before the conference season has yet to play to the half-way point.

Re: “Everything has worked for the Preds thus far — but the season's second half will show who the team really is

In all fairness JR... "Early February" is 3 days from now... and Rinne is traveling with the team on this road trip. What scares me in the immediate future is that Hutton, starting tonight against the Blues in St. Louis is 0-4 against them, losing all 3 games he started against them last season, and his token NHL appearance two years ago (for Chicago) was also a loss to them.

I know Laviolette is "playing the hot hand," but I'd take a page out of Whitey Herzog's book and go with Mazanec tonight... Just my gut...

Re: “If we want to keep the Titans, new ownership is needed — and Peyton Manning's name comes up again

These occasional chats about Peyton and the Titans is rather silly, but does fill some radio talk time or print for those that do these things. First, Peyton is a true asset to UT Football and has been a real trooper on trips and advice up there. As to Nashville and the Titans, that interest has never been shown and I suspect never will be. There would be a true shortage of local prospects
that could afford to purchase the Titans, unless the Mayor buys it with the
City taxpayer funding.

Re: “If we want to keep the Titans, new ownership is needed — and Peyton Manning's name comes up again

If moving to LA was a good thing the Raiders would not have moved back to Oakland.
Things I see on the field but not being a professional maybe I'm out of line to mention them: Even before all the injuries the pocket seemed to collapse quicker than most other teams, leaving close quarters to throw the ball. Annnd, in a lot of games it looked like the defensive backs couldn't wrap up a cheerleader. Annnd, it's most likely Locker's last year with the Titans, which has the potential to be a huge mistake. Some day he'll quit getting hurt, they ought to keep him.

I'm glad to see someone from the local media take our absentee ownership group to task for their lack of commitment to this community. I haven't watched a Titans game all year and won't until we have local ownership like the Preds

Love the Lazarus, Jackson, Johnson and Polk references!
Have to admit that Titan games were once a must-watch event for me, but I probably won't bother with tonight's game.
When a woman can watch an NFL game and tell that the players look like a high school team, there's something so very wrong that the team probably needs to scrap everyone and start totally fresh.
I think I could be an assistant coach and they'd do as well. Will work for a lot less than the current staff.

Re: “If we want to keep the Titans, new ownership is needed — and Peyton Manning's name comes up again

Very odd article. So the current owner has no intention of moving or selling the team, is making money hand over fist like every other NFL owner, yet the team is at risk for moving to Los Angeles? How? Many teams have ownership groups without local ties. Take it from a fan of a team that was actually at risk of moving to Los Angeles (the Bills), the Titans have a nice stadium and a wealthy fan base in a chic American city and an owner with no intention to sell: you're fine. If this article said that an ownership change is necessary for the team to improve, then I would be more inclined to agree.
