Re: NFL News & Notes

Haha, Matt. We earned that home field advantage. I would be rooting for SF if you were there, if only to validate us losing to you (kind of like in horse racing :-)). You guys have had your days in the sun. I really want this one to be ours...for the team and the 12s. DrJohnH, I see an awful lot of ...

Re: NFL News & Notes

I read a statistical analysis that showed the Broncos lead the league in yards after catch and opposed to that were the Seahawks and their defense that led the league in limiting yards after the catch. My Hawks are a great tackling team. The X factor for them is going to be Percy Harvin. I already ...

Me either. She's spent the fall and winter at Pegasus Training Center in Redmond, and she looks great! She leaves February 1 to resume training in California.

Re: Racing Trivia

Time to wake up this sleepy thread with a fairly easy one. Who was the first female trainer to run a horse in the Kentucky Derby? What was the horses name, what year, and where did it place? Also, what horse won the derby that year? WarBiscuit Not sure if she's the first, but certainly my favorite ...

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

10yo war mare Sun City will make her 2014 debut and her 107th start tomorrow (1/28/14) at Turf Paradise in a $3,000 claimer. She has a huge following out there... Good luck to her... WarBiscuit Sun City came in 4th (of 6). She led most of the mile and was passed in the stretch. She's owned and race...

Re: NFL News & Notes

I think the turning point in the Seahawks win over SanFran was Pete Carroll going for it on 4th and 7 early in the 4th quarter and coming up with a touchdown. He loves to take chances! It was a typical hard fought game between two excellent teams who've played physical all year. Hate that it’s Sherm...

Hey Sparrow Castle, another super 12 here!!! I have followed the Seahawks since 1977 when I was 10 years old....I have been a die hard since then. Through good and bad(the late 70's and early 90's....Ugh). I moved to Michigan in 1984 and stayed loyal through all the decades. SB XL broke my heart. T...

Re: NFL News & Notes

What is 'unfactual' about the number of Seahawks that have been suspended for the usage of drugs that the NFL has deemed Performance Enhancing? It's not as if anybody is fabricating numbers. Oh good grief, you still don't get it, but go ahead and think whatever you want. You ran with an article wri...

Re: NFL News & Notes

Yep, we are concerned about the recent cluster, not denying that. Gotta trust that coach Carroll and office is dealing with it, as they did before the season started. I'd be surprised if Browner is with us next year. Use of HGH does horrible things to one's body, linked to health problems such as di...

Re: NFL News & Notes

You are correct that it is difficult to test for and I'm aware of the brouhaha about it with the Players Union. But we can't link the recent violations on the Seahawks team with the use of HGH. That's my point, as well as that it is not unique to the Seahawks. I don't condone PEDs in football any mo...

Re: NFL News & Notes

That the positive tests have come in a cluster this year is concerning, but there's been some confusing things reported by national media and in your posts. It's important to remember that there are two separate NFL policies, because a couple of these suspensions were for testing positive for using ...

Re: NFL News & Notes

I don't have much against SF. I like the majority of their players, but I just find their coach intolerable. On the other hand, I love Pete Carroll, but I find the majority of Seattle's players intolerable. And the team is a walking billboard for HGH or Deer Antler Spray or something. I try hard ne...

Re: MUST-READ article on Jacobson and others

You're right. Just looked at the facebook page. Now I got it. The DAS syndicate is a low-end operation...for ex.,$500.00 you can say "you own a racehorse". Jacobsen has "50 syndicate owners of one horse". I became physically ill looking at those DAS racers...many who are now dead, Wish I had the ti...

I follow Sun City too. She runs at Emerald Downs too, and I've won many bets on the grand old girl! Another "war horse" I love is the now 10 year old gelding Swiss Ski . Still competitive after 77 starts, 21 wins, 12 seconds, 14 thirds for many different trainers. Eleven starts in 2013. He has earne...
