Re: “Durham native "Bud" Barbee's sensational career tells the story of segregated baseball in the Triangle

There is some confusion behind this article. The Barbee that you all are referring to is Bud Barbee's brother WALTER BRATCHER (LAMB/BUD) BARBEE who played as a pitcher for the New York Black Yankees (1937; 1940-1941; 1946-1949). Because John Quincy Adams Barbee never PITCHED a day in his LIFE. In fact, John Quincy Adams Barbee didn't starting playing professional baseball until 1943 with the BALTIMORE ELITE GIANTS as an OUTFIELDER. This whole article was about WALTER BRATCHER (LAMB/BUD) BARBEE NOT John Quincy Adams Barbee not until you started mentioning his minor league playing days. Bud Barbee played from 1943-1955 which included minor league play. THIS ARTICLE WAS IN FACT ALL ABOUT WALTER BRATCHER (LAMB/BUD) BARBEE and NOT John Quincy Adams Barbee.

Re: “A thought experiment: What if we banned college basketball coaches?

If you ban them, they will be back. As long as the world has college basketball, the world needs college basketball coaches. Good ones, this is a competitive sport.

And, hey, you live in the Triangle, right? This is a college basketball mecca, one of the really fun things that we can enjoy over and over again.

Re: “A thought experiment: What if we banned college basketball coaches?

I think that we should also look at the behavior and not the job description. Not all professional coaches are hot-headed and not all professors really teach. What we can learn from this is that coaches need to be level-headed, not strident, be confident and calm on the floor especially during the critical times of the game. Marl of Admission-service.com

Re: “Playoff hopes dimming, the Canes are ripe for a shake-up

I hope we get rid of Ward. Too much money for a lackluster player.

Re: “Playoff hopes dimming, the Canes are ripe for a shake-up

It also must be mentioned that as soon as I file a story dumping on the Canes, they pull out a gem like their come-from-behind 5-4 overtime win over Montreal on New Year's Eve. Who can figure this team out? They're as likely to be red-hot as ice-cold down the stretch.

Re: “Playoff hopes dimming, the Canes are ripe for a shake-up

Late-breaking note: Tim Gleason was traded on New Year's Day, to Toronto for John-Michael Liles, an offensive defenseman who missed time with injuries and found his job taken by younger, cheaper guys once he got healthy. The Leafs tossed in a prospect too.

It went down in a mildly humiliating way. Liles was in Michigan for the Winter Classic, probably psyched to take place in the league's marquee outdoor game. Then he was pulled off the ice at warmups and told he was traded. Brutal timing.

Re: “Reviving the national past-its-prime-time with movies

Glad you've gotten that off your chest, Mr. Greshes. But—not to be pedantic—I don't think you've really straightened out the facts. You've simply offered your own arguments for the superiority of professional baseball over professional basketball, and leavened it with a few insults. Not exactly on point.

Enjoy the World Series, by the way. We may watch some of it, too!

One last thing. Average ticket price of an mlb game: $27. Average price of an nba game $48. Try getting your facts straight next time

Re: “Reviving the national past-its-prime-time with movies

Wow! What an idiotic article. 1st off, the average salary in the nba is far higher than in major league baseball, so there goes the overpaid stiff argument. 2nd, far more nba players than mlb (that means major league baseball, since you seem to know nothing) end up on the police blotter. 3rd should LA, the 2nd largest US city have been deprived of a team for the sake of Brooklyn, especially when the city wouldn't let O'Malley build a stadium where he wanted to? By the way, It would have been on the site of the Nets new arena. And nba teams relocate at a way higher rate than mlb teams. Attendance in baseball is at a record high.the same can't be said for the nba. Revenue is at a record high. And stodgy old baseball has used the internet as a revenue producer for way longer and way better than any other other sport. You can buy live HD access to every game for the entire season online for only $109! Wonder how many people are watching that? Or are you just stuck in an old technology like TV? By the way, have you noticed how long nba games have gotten lately? Plus no sport has had a wider variety of teams winning the championship than baseball. Far better competitive balance. As Hall of Fame sportswriter Red Smith once wrote, "Baseball is only dull to those with dull minds."

Re: “Can the Hurricanes avoid the basement in a new, formidable division?

Do people see the trade of both Dalpe and Jeremy Welsh to Vancouver for Kellan Tochkin as anything other than a decisive end to lengthy exasperation?
