‘Cheating chose:’ Brady’s

injury is Patriots’ karma

To the sports editor:

Many years ago when I was a schoolboy in Brooklyn and a playmate did something we thought was illegal and then suffered some minor calamity, like dropping the ball or falling down, we would taunt him by saying, “Cheating chose.”

Now to the present when, after it was discovered in recent years a New England Patriots staff member had taped the sideline signals of opposing teams so they would know what plays were being called, Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady is injured and out for the season.

To that, I say to the Patriots, “Cheating chose.”


Prep volleyball preview

shortchanged players

To the sports editor:

Regarding the Sept. 3 article “Durango Dynamo” and the volleyball players-to-watch list, it seems to me the writer should have done more research. I find it odd how a school could make the list but none of its players did.

Also, there were three local high school players from different schools who were selected to participate in the USA High Pro-formance program this past summer and traveled to Europe to represent the United States, where their team finished in the top 10. It seems funny that none of those players was mentioned.

Please give all the kids the credit they are due, and don’t take the word of one coach.


Local TV sports should

give all baseball scores

To the sports editor:

Why is it that none of the local TV sportscasts — on channels 3, 5, 8 or 13 — reports all of the day’s major league baseball scores?

There must be thousands of baseball fans here who follow teams from both leagues, but the local stations usually just report on a few games, if any.

I realize that most people can afford to subscribe to expanded cable to get ESPN, but, sadly, there are some of us who cannot.

Please, stations, give us a break and take a minute of airtime to provide us with all of the daily scores.


Print, online coverage

of prep football lauded

To the sports editor:

As a longtime follower of high school football, I want to thank the Review-Journal for the comprehensive job it is doing both in print and with its new online project (nevadapreps.com), which I just checked out (Friday).

The way football is handled in the paper, especially on Fridays and Saturdays, reminds me of what I used to read when I lived outside of Pittsburgh.

I look forward to the efforts of both entities getting even better.
