hurri,

I tried to buy some piranhas about ten years ago but I couldn't find any real black market assassins in the aquarium stores.

years back I had two of those fag fighting fish till my son used them for live bait in a rock pit on road 84

Hurri'

Yeah Solar,

It is nearly impossible to get them in the mid-atlantic any more. Ever since those snake-heads (which I also had two of, back when they were legal) got into the Chesapeake, predatory fish with, no natural predators are pretty much extinct in pet stores.

Hurri'

Chinese Fighters are alright, but you just gotta buy about seven at a time.

Striped Tiger Convicts are pretty aggressive too. They go nuts when defending their babies as well. I had to fight the females every time I had to clean the tank, during maternity.

I hope he goes to Miami so we can kick his **** the next 2 years!

I think Ohio State is the team i hate the most followed closely by Notre Dame and Florida...

Montreal...we'd say the same thing.

I'll tell something thats crazy up here in NE Georgia

The same Oscars (Cichlidae) we caught by the hundreds while bass fishing in the Everglades are for sale in Wal Marts up here for like 3 to 5 bucks for ones a 1/4 of the size we threw back all day long.

WOW some real haters with this whole possibility of Lebron to Miami...

I've heard a lot about how oooooo Lebron's ego is so big he would never do this...

(So if he does doesn't it prove HE ACTUALLY DOES CARE ABOUT WINNING)

He diminishes any respect or credibility as a legitimate argue for one of the best all time because he has all-star caliber supporting crew.

(Hmm Jordan had what, Pippen/Kukoc/Rodmen/Lights our Kerr to win and sprinkle in some stud defensive and team oriented players. Not to mention the zen master himself Phil)

Kobe has had (Shaq, Robert (Big shot Bob), Horace Grant, Paul Gasol, Ron Artest, Lamar Odom)

Magic Johnson (Kareem Abdul Jabbar, James Worthy)

Larry Bird had 2 or three studs


The Boston team decided championships were more important than ME FIRST ATTITUDES and created this theory that three solid players can get it done. They have been in 2-3 finals since they assembled and one 1 and lost one in game 7. They probably go to three straight if not for Kevin Garnett going down last year. And they are not in their prime.

LBJ/Dwayne/Bosh would be an insane team.. They are friends, and they positioned themselves for this once in a lifetime opportunity by ALL OF THEM GIVING THEIR ALL TO THE TEAMS THAT RESPECTIVELY DRAFTED THEM.. Some of you guys are hyprocrites. So ur saying LBJ should just rot in Cleveland because what??? He owes it to them? He should be forced to go to Chicago or New York or New Jersey because those teams have money and HE HAS TO BE THE BOSS..

Wade has already told LBJ that if he comes to Miami, he can be the boss. Wade will sit back and allow him to take a leading role and Wade will play the Olympic off the ball approach and EAT UP hussle plays. Wade has been to the promise land and knows he needs help to get back.

LBJ and Bosh have been fighting for their lives to make their teams better and their teams have not put themselves in the position that Miami did to make this DREAM TEAM become a reality.. So stop hating on Miami Heat and their fans for being excited if it happens.. And I promise if it does, the veterans will flock to Miami to win a championship.. And a new rivalry will be in competition for the FINALS.. L.A vs Miami next year.

After the Heat dispatch of the Celtics for reveng, and then Orlando for fun on the east coast.

(Hmm Kobe had Shaq

Hurri'

I can't find Jack Dempseys anywhere either.

My aunt Sharon had one the size of an oven mit.

SSIB -

Wilder and Lyons both will not be on this team.

Mark my words.

Wilder needs to realize his athletic ability, size, and instincts are better suited for defense. UM has cooled on him.


Lyons is a nice player but like I said, I believe UM will have their DB spots (4) all sewn up by the time Lyons makes a decision.

Don't expect or hope that either will be in this class. (Honestly I'm not really sweating either)

LeBron = Shooter McGavin. LeBron wants an NBA ring just like Shooter wanted that darn gold jacket.

LeBron to Happy..."I want an NBA ring so bad so before I play, I just may, eat some hay, so don't get in my way."

CaneSawMassacre

Unless he is a silent.. SOUP.

They will have 4 spots sewn up, you got something different on info? Cause my source says W.Lyons is not considered even close to a LOCK for the canes.

By the way BG1906.. We were all feeling pretty confident about Chickillo. Did you see the new canesport article where he talks about how he and Patchan are GOOD BUDDIES, there daddies talk all the time. They talk every couple of weeks..

VERY INTERESTING..

It confirms what my source told me that Chickillo's dad has openly stated concerns about Shannon's coaching abilities.

Then that means a couple kids are pretty much out..

Depending on if J. Davis actually makes it into school. Which doesn't look good. They could take 5 next year and move Davis to WR where wants to play..

Def. 4 DB's taken, maybe 5 depending on what is going on and if B. Harris leaves a Junior for the NFL.

Matty...I am ashamed of U stooping to such levels. Whatever it takes, have at it!

CaneSawMassacre

I'm not as sold on Lyons as other people are.. I like all of our other top DB prospects better. Gorman/Crawford/Louis Jean/ but if he was the 4th I would take him..

A couple problems I have with Lyons.

1. If you look at his film he plays almost up on the line of scrimmage. Essentially an OLB or Rover.
2. He has almost zero film of him actually covering, breaking up passes or intercepting them.
3. He has good but not elite speed for a DB
4. I think he could end up bulking up and playing OLB for us if he did commit.


With that said positives.
1. Excellent tackler/ Especially out in space (Could be a real nice SS prospect if he can build on his coverage skills.)
2. Fights off blocks very well for the high school level
3. He has a great motor though he doesn't have elite speed, so sometimes he is out of position but because of work and tenacity to get to the ball he makes tackles that can end up being back breakers in a game.
4. OH YEA... Did I mention he is not afraid of contact...


We could use another pure corner, but in high school those are hard to come by.

SOUP I like R. Therezie a lot more then Lyons...

What U Say say???

CaneRock

Six, the difference between the supporting cast that MJ had in 91', and the supporting cast that LJ has/had is intensity and toughness, you can't measure that in numbers. You know full well before the Bulls won that 1st title, that Detroit used to muscle and bully their ass, Scottie Pippen's migraine ring a bell? Boston used to muscle and bully their ass to if I recall correctly.

DONE

CSM...Lyons? Who is Lyons??? LOL

Many DBs may eventually be a safety or OLB, but they ALL start at CB and then move from there based on cover skills, speed, size and willingness to make contact.

I like my CBs with "good hips".

But that's why I also like the USC Song Girls.

Go figure...

Cane Mutiny is such an awesome book! If you haven't read it yet, go get a copy right now!

I'm at the part where Feldman talks about the early 2000s Canes. I'm glad we're finally bringing in some highly-vocal/cocky players like LA and Kevin Nelson. Players like that give the team a lot of energy, kinda like Portis and Shockey did back in the day.

On the other hand, we still don't have a hardcore vocal general like Reed was. I'm hoping that at some point one of these juniors or seniors steps up and takes that role, maybe Ray Ray. He's only a sophomore but I saw him by the buses after the Georgia Tech game last year and he was extremely critical and vocal about why we didn't try to score more points on GT. We blew out GT so I was like "damn, this kid's got a tremendous killer instinct!" He seemed highly-animated and passionate, so I'm hoping he keeps that fire burning going forward.

Reed was and is extremely special though, the kind of player that comes around only once a decade, if not longer. It's extremely hard to find someone like him since A) he was incredibly gifted ON the field, B) he carried himself as the owner/leader of the entire team, a responsibility that not every player wants but one he naturally gravitated to, and C) he was extremely effective in his rhetorical and motivational speaking abilities. And to think that his only other scholarship offer was from Tulane!!!

I can't wait to see who steps up these next few years. The class of 2008 is coming of age, so someone is bound to reach the level of maturity needed to be the vocal leader of this team.

GO CANES!!!

CanesFanStuckInCali

And if no one from the 2008 class steps up, then Ray Ray (2009), LA and Nelson (2010), and Tavadis Glenn (2011) will surely fill that void once their time comes. GO CANES!!!!!!!!

CaneSawMassacre

Jacory Harris/ Orlando Franklin/ L. Hankerson Should be your offensive leaders

A.Bailey/C.McCarthy/B.Harris should be the leaders on defense.


I'm looking to see Jacory really take the leadership role by the helm, being more animated on the sidelines and calling teammates out who are under performing.

He seems hesitant to do that at times, but I think as a sophomore he wanted to lead by example. This year he needs to get in peoples faces.

Those guys will definitely lead next season, but not like Reed. Reed's team had leaders--Dorsey, Vilma, Joaquin, for example--but Reed was the head-honcho, the don, the emperor, the sheriff. You effed up back then, and Reed was gonna let you have it. Moreover, the other leaders fed off of Reed.

The team right now doesn't have that, at least I don't think so. It's probably because the team hasn't had any quality veterans the last few seasons (as exemplified by our poor performance in the NFL draft). I think that changes between this and next season, as both Harris's will be in a prime position to solidify themselves as the veteran leaders of this team. I too am looking forward to Jacory taking a more hands-on approach to his role as a leader, though to some degree Brandon is already there.

The other guys--CMac, Franklin, Bailey, and Hank--hopefully we see those guys develop into the leaders of their units, though I don't see them leading the entire defense or offense and much less the team. Franklin has the best shot, but CMac isn't talented enough on the field to inspire his peers; Bailey seems too playful, though it's good that everyone looks up to him because of his freakish athleticism; and Hank's a really quiet guy, though his off-season workouts should hopefully inspire the other WRs.

Back to Cane Mutiny: I just read the chapter on the 2003 Fiesta Bowl. I'm not going to lie to you--I got choked up! I relieved the horror last year before the Champs Bowl by re-watching the fiasco for the first time on ESPN Classic, but reading it in the book hit me much harder than watching it on TV.

We BETTER take it to those suckeyes!!! I hope the team uses the Fiesta Bowl as motivation, just like Reed used the 47-0 1997 loss to FSU as pre-game motivation five years later in 1997 when only a handful of players--fifth-year seniors--had actually experienced that embarrassment.

LETS GO CANES!!!!!!!

Van Gundy, who once coached in Miami and remains a close friend of Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, also predicted that James would stay in Cleveland, scoffing at the speculation that he would join Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in South Florida.

Wade and Bosh announced earlier in the day that they both have agreed to sign with the Heat in Miami. James will make his announcement Thursday with an hour-long television special.

"If he went anywhere but Cleveland, I'd be shocked,'' Van Gundy said before the Orlando Summer League action began Wednesday. "But I'd be doubly shocked if he went to Miami.''

Van Gundy did speak in admiration for the team that the Heat are now putting together after convincing Bosh to leave Toronto and join Wade in Miami.

"That's a team that was, the last two years, a No. 5 seed. And now they've added one of the best forwards in basketball. As far as a one-two punch, that compares pretty favorably to Kobe [Bryant] and Pau Gasol,'' he said. "It's right there. They are instant contenders. There isn't any doubt. They are contenders to win an NBA championship. They (the Heat) still have a lot of money to put guys around them. They'll get good enough pieces that they're instant contenders.''

Share The Magic reached the NBA Finals from the East two years ago, but they lost to the Celtics this past season.

It didn't take much prompting of Van Gundy, who is proud of his old-school basketball values, to see his opinion of James' self promotion, which has reached an all-time high.

"It takes 15 seconds to say I've decided to stay in Cleveland, but we've got another 59 minutes and 45 seconds to do, what? Promote LeBron James? As if we don't do that enough?'' he said. "It's gotten ridiculous. It's almost like a parody of itself, this whole situation now.''
