ryan Stow was beaten and severely injured at Dodgers Stadium in March 2011. A jury has found the Dodgers business entity negligent in its security for the stadium. Patch file photo.

The settlement is not nearly enough for what Bryan and his family have had to and will continue toRead More go through for the rest of his life. He has 2 children that will never really be able to do anything with and enjoy their father like children should be able to. Very sad situation that could have been avoided.

Glad to see limits (hopefully) being place on high school football. The research shows time andRead More time again the damage being done to the human brain after consistent hits to the head. Minimizing the risk seems like the natural and best thing to do.

I totally agree with limiting the chance of brain trauma. One thing we need to remember is thatRead More junior high and high school students' brains are still developing.

For those who think it is ok for your kid to get their brain throttled, do you support their use ofRead More drugs, too? Mixed messages.

Oakland has claimed to be to broke to maintain city services, including reasonable response times onRead More 911 calls - yet they have enough money to give five million dollars to the two billionaires who own the As?

Maybe they just knew it was (practically speaking) an uncollectable amount, especially if the cityRead More doesn't have the money for legal fees to pursue it.

whats wrong with these ball clubs? build your own ball park and do what ever you want, rent the parkRead More out when you are not around and the parking lots and etc . just be sure you have the road ways to the place right .

Did you know that Fremont Main Library is showing some of the Cup on a big screen in our FukayaRead More room? We had Mexico v Brazil (great game!) and will be having Iran v Argentina, US v Germany and the 2 final games the weekend of July 12 & 13.

Yap Mexico v Brazil was amazing. Also Iran v Argentia. Although US lost the match against Germany,Read More but that won't make much difference for US. Waiting for the final games in July. Check some useful stuff of FIFA at http://www.amajorwager.com/ .

People are making way too big a deal about a horse. NO ONE CARES

Horse racers tend to beat the shit out of the horse. This is the most fucked up style of racing ever

It is a bit of a quantum leap to equate a rich celebrity cheating on their wife with some other goodRead More looking female who is either a willing sex partner, or a gold digger looking for a pay day, with a rapist. Rape is usually about revenge, power, anger, payback, etc. Tiger Woods and the others had sex with a lot of other good looking women because they could. Apples and oranges. And just curious Bob the dentist, how are you such an expert on rape? You admit to never having been raped, yet you are so quick to opine that just because somebody finds her story to have some credibility issues, you assume they are chauvinistic, misogynistic, and uneducated? Or have we arrived at the point where any female who makes an allegation should automatically be believed?

Desert Rat....Let me clarify..I am not equating rape with high risk sex...I was only saying thatRead More many men, in the celebrity life and otherwise, will risk everything, their careers, etc., to have sex....be it consensual or non consensual. As far as assuming that the women is telling the truth...I have no idea....without more info it would be presumptuous of me to assume anything...it is true, however, that many many men get away with rape, mostly recently Jameis Winston...the evidence against is hard to refute.....I would guess that very few rapes get reported as a percentage of total rapes...the statistics bare this out...and even fewer rapes, still, are prosecuted...thus, not too much fear of any athlete being sent to jail for rape. Mike Tyson is the only one I can think of though I am sure there must be others....

Parents ruin sports..
sportsnut July 14, 2014 at 04:39 am
Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.
CowDung July 23, 2014 at 07:20 am
sportsnut: Seems like a perfect opportunity for you to get involved in coaching... If nothingRead More else, becoming a coach will give you a voice in the league to lobby for equal playing time for all kids, and rotation of positions--particularly at the lower levels.

Right Cat. Try winning 3 in 3 years or more than 2 in the bay area. Also How many SB have theRead More niners and Raiders won in the past 15 years? 0. So Sounds like Oakland is still better than SF who is still trying to catch up. Way to live up to your name their Liver... Ha ha ha

Fandom at it's best. The A's ranked 7th in operating income, but 26th in revenues, managing theirRead More costs effectively, which includes salaries and rent. Must be running on a pretty sweet deal with the Coliseum a year ago to have those sweet bottomline results. The Giants are 3rd in income and 3rd in revenues. 5th in total value at 1 billion. Giants are pretty effectively managing the product on the field as well as the business side. Business, the Giants are pretty cutthroat comparing them with the Haas family when they gave up the territorial rights for the "good of baseball" Haas screwed up, should have just managed his bottomline and worried about the A's. Giants have done it right, built their own park, created their own area, their own identity, that's how a business is managed and runned effectively. Having the A's around will eat into profits, so with the A's out of the area, means even more value to the Giants. When the Haas put the A's up for sale in the late 90's Norcal SuperMarket magnet Bob Piccinnini had his hat in the ring to purchase the A's, the Giants didn't want him. A Giants rep told him he'd be great for MLB, just not in Oakland. Piccinnini's Norcal ties pretty much told the Giants that the A's would fight for every dollar to build a stadium locally. So MLB declined Piccinnini's bid. He eventually got minority interest in the Padres. The Giants have a 20 year headstart with At & T, no reason why the A's can't catch up with Clorox Field. Yahoo money, google money, facebook money, twitter money....isn't far away. Even look at the Warriors, their contract with Kaiser ends when....drumroll....2018, just in time for the Warriors to sign a new deal with the numerous health providers with in a stones throw of their proposed arena in Mission Bay.
