A 2005 regular season game between the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers drew a record 103,467 fans.

Sports News - Kobe Out of LA?

Has Kobe Bryant played his last game as a Laker? It appears so, as rumors that Bryant has already cleaned out his locker have surfaced. In the past week, owner Jerry Buss has also suggested that the Lakers are open to shopping their franchise player. During the summer, Bryant made it no secret that he wanted out of Los Angeles when he voiced a few attacks on his team in the media. Among the teams on Bryant's wish list are the Dallas Mavericks, New York Knicks and Chicago Bulls.

    I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.

    The Cowboys have cut Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted in the NFL, from the team. Is this an expression of the conformity policy so deeply rooted in American athletics?
