Hello all. While the NFL lockout of officials has become a national story and made the games almost a joke in my opinion one must ask the question "Where is Roger Goodell, the commissioner?" My local sports morning show featuring Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton sum it up very well. Check it out HERE. It's about ten minutes and Craig gets a little nuts but the point is right on.

Hello all. I am back with another auction style trade bait post calling it Benny-Bay. (If you have a better name let me know) Here is how it works:
I will put up a card or cards for trade and you can bid on them with cards of your own to trade. After a predetermined time I will accept the "best" offer and the cards go to the winner. Now book value does not have to be a factor, it's the offer I like best that will win. Obviously you know what I like so those types of offers will carry more weight. While I am not looking for money as offers but I would certainly have to consider a cash offer if you were to make one. I really am looking for a new fun way to trade. Depending on the cards I am offering I may or may not have a "reserve" on the auctions. I don't want to trade a decent relic or auto for a 1990 Donruss Julio Machado that I already have a dozen of. Once I set a bid as a leader the reserve has been met and the auction is on. If it is a "no reserve" auction then the first bid sets the bar and we go from there. I will make it clear as to any reserve level on a particular card or cards I put up. You can make bids in the comments section of the post and I will keep updating as to which offer is in the lead as the auction progresses. You can bid as often as you like and can add to a bid or change it as you wish. Tell your friends and let's have some fun with this.

Hello all. I got delayed last night so I will now post the winner of my contest. Thanks to all who commented, it seems everybody had pretty much the same reaction to how Topps did me wrong. To be honest most of you seemed more pissed off then I was and I love the way you all had my back. So let's get to the winner now. There were 25 comments so that's 25 entrants. Here is the list in order of comment.
- The Dimwit
- Captain Canuck
- Stealing Home
- High-Five Man

- Scott Sawyer
