Through interviewing past players (Corky Calhoun), coaches (John Chaney and Jack Ramsay), and local media (Harry Kalas and Dick "Hoops" Weiss) writer and director Mikaelyn Austin paints a deeply moving picture of what is was like playing and watching a game at The Palestra.

The Mitchell Report

East Coast Bias has been watching all the press conferences and so far, myself, Brendan Canney, am disgusted with Major League Baseball. Even though there is a lot of hear-say in the report, there is enough evidence that points to major players, like Roger Clemens and Andy Pettite, that they indeed took steroids. It truly is a dark day in baseball.

Stay tuned to East Coast Bias as both me and Jason will chime in soon with both of our opinions on what has been said and reported.

Bobby Petrino Resigns As Falcons Head Coach

Bobby Petrino has resigned his position as coach of the Atlanta Falcons on Tuesday, and is currently negotiating an agreement to become the new coach at the University of Arkansas.

After only 13 games as head coach of the Atlanta Falcons, which included 10 losses, Petrino is out of the NFL. Petrino had a five-year, $24 million contract with the Falcons and will be taking a pay cut to coach the Razorbacks.

The Falcons are assured of the 32nd losing season in their 42-year history. Petrino's resignation is another blow to a team that dealt with Vick's legal troubles since the first day of training camp, a blow up with DeAngelo Hall over personnel decisions, and a bunch of injuries.

Poor Arthur Blank....

Sorry about the delay folks. Archive.org was being bitchy and finals week starts on Monday.

Not Guilty, And He's Sticking To It

Bonds' new lawyer entered a not guilty plea in U.S. District Court to the four counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice contained in the Nov. 15 indictment.

"Barry Bonds is innocent," defense attorney Allen Ruby said "He has trust and faith in the justice system."

The indictment charges Bonds with lying when he testified he never knowingly used performance enhancing drugs, even though prosecutors say he flunked a private steroids test in 2000. Bonds' personal surgeon, Dr. Arthur Ting, collected the blood sample and is expected to be called as a witness if Bonds take the case goes to trial.

Investigators also say they seized other evidence, including an alleged "doping calendar" maintained by Bonds' personal trainer Greg Anderson, who spent about a year in jail for refusing to help investigators in their perjury probe of Bonds.

I have always been an outspken critic of Barry Bonds so I hope all of these charges stick so we can land this dirtbag in prison. I'm sick and tired of his whining, unprofessional, and "It's all about me" attitude. He broke the most storied record in all of sports and instead of having people embrace him as our new home run king, most people despise him.

Dontrelle Willis and Miguel Cabrera Moving To Detroit

The Florida Marlins and Detroit Tigers have agreed in principle on a trade that will send Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis to Detroit for key prospects.

The Tigers would send outfielder Cameron Maybin, pitcher Andrew Miller, catcher Mike Rabelo and three other minor league pitchers to the Marlins. The most notable of those prospects obviously is Andrew Miller who went 5-5 in 13 starts after being called up last summer.

A huge move for the Detroit Tigers. They get a hude prospect and RBI machine in Miguel Cabrera (who according to reports is losing the bulk) and Dontrelle Willis, who might see a resurgence in his new city. The AL Central just got a lot more interesting. Perhaps this could lead to a conclusion of the Johan Santana trade talks because it appears that the Tigers mean business.
