I'm am tired of my neighbors telling Me and my other neighbors we cannot ride on our road back in the woods! The only thing I have every wanted to do in life is ride my dirt bike. Ever sense I was little all I was ever able to do was ride my dirt bike and since we lived in a neighborhood we moved out to the woods where we were allowed to ride our dirt bikes and be as loud as we want to.
What many people don't understand is that motocross is really expensive and it is not easy for my family to pay for food and every day finances like normal families have to. When you add on all the gas money for the truck and two bikes its a lot of money but when you add on all the money to pay for a race bike, maintenance, gear, oil, parts, and many other things to keep a rider safe while they ride its a whole lot of money! When you add on the going to a track to ride during the week when it is $20-35 per rider! It's a lot and not many people have that kind of money.
Motocross is a ride at your own risk sport. My little sister and I understand the dangers of motocross because we have been riding incee we where very little. We have had friends break bones, get knocked out, get a concussion, and even death has found a few of them unfortunately.
We have been told we cannot ride because we are in danger of hurting someone else or our selves while riding out in the woods on a gravel road where there is a speed limit. I am a licensed driver and I ride a dirt bike with my neighbors who stay close behind in case of a car.
This is Easy! Tebow is Forbes Most Influential Athlete in the World and has the ability to fill stadium seats and produce wins for Any Team in the NFL given the chance. It is time to stop hiding from the Truth and to let Fate decide.
Fate has chosen Tebow and it is High Time to allow Fate to Succeed in this Sport. It's not always what some scout has to say. What About Tebow's Combine where he far out performed a very good circle of talented QB's in the draft? What about Tebow's Ability to overcome all the critics and Win despite the constant doubt and Flat Out Jealousy of those whom prefer to stand in the LimeLight over Tebow!
Tebow's Light Cannot be just Turned off because it is a light that is magnified by the Grass Roots movement of the people whom love him and love what he is about, these same people believe in him and believe that he has the potential to be one of the Greatest NFL Players of All Time!
Since the 1960s, crackdowns for performance enhancing drugs at the level of elite athletics (Olympics, Baseball, Cycling, etc.) have been steadily increasing. However, so too have the reported cases of steroid abuse.
For every athlete who is condemned for performance enhancing drug abuse, countless unknown others stand in the shadows and continue their illicit drug regimen. This problem is endemic to the sports community, and will continue inevitably. We propose that instead of condemning sports heroes for training and chemically enhancing their bodies for the new standard of elite athleticism and competition, we legalize and regulate these drugs, thus ushering in the next level of elite athleticism. This approach would not only cut down on abuse and encourage healthy regimens, but would greatly increase fans' morale and promote a more honest discourse between the sports community and the general public.
Already we have enhanced the physical nature of training, to the point of having multi-million dollar equipment for the most advanced athletes. Chemical enhancement is the next logical step in our progression for a finer tuned athlete. The future of sports WILL be steroid fueled. Embrace the revolution!
There has been a lack of PC support from all the WWE SVR games ever made. From SVR 2005 to the all-new WWE 13, they have never made a PC game. Now, With 2K's New Beginning, that should change.
In the wake of several high profile sexual assault cases that highlight how school officials, coaches and community members are willing to turn a blind eye when crimes are committed by those involved in their local sports team, we ask that the Commissioners of Pro-Sports leagues take on a Zero Tolerance policy towards players and teams that are involved in such crimes. Any player involved in any such crime is banned from pro-leagues for life.
Wrestling is a sport that will help people increase in speed and strength.
Not only that but wrestling will teach many student athletes to be dedicated to something and teach them obedience.
Pro Boxing only AA Ring Annonuncer Henry "Did-com-bob-u-lating" Jones was offered the job to announce, Friday, Feb. 22, 2013 in DC, by Boxing Promoter. The HJ entourage was making plans to travel, when Jones called President of HJ Fan Club to give this disheartening cancellation, "ESPN said they want to use their own."
A discussion was held, with questions, "Could this be modern day discrimination", "why wouldn't ESPN want to recognize Jones in Black History Month", "Did they know he was to receive an award from the White House" recognizing his contribution to this field? "Is it Racism?"
We want the world to know ESPN may be practicing unfair selections when it comes to AA. What else will be uncovered about this network? Jones should be recognized and contracted with ESPN as being a loquacious boxing ring announcer, educated and profession.
This petition is for ESPN to bring Jones on board. Message to ESPN: The people who fight looks like Jones. Enough of this practice of "using your own, " make Jones "your own!"
The Glamorgan Board of Trustees has stated :
- that it is not an option for them to replace the current sports uniforms due to the cost;
- that from 2013 all students who represent the school in a sports team will need to purchase their own uniform.
The cost of these uniforms indicated by the Board of Trustees in the quarterly newsletter on November 2012 will range from $85 - $95, but these costs are indicative and have not been confirmed.
We believe that there are alternative ways to fund a 'set' of school uniforms. For example, fundraising, applying for grants, sponsorships etc. There are parents who are willing to assist in these processes.
Parents would also be willing to pay a 'rental' fee for uniforms which would recoup the cost of the uniforms over a few years.
Many families in Torbay are struggling financially. Currently registering for sports teams is a large expense especially when there is more than one child attending the school. Netball in particular has raised the cost of registering significantly. This could ultimately determine whether or not a child would sign up for a sport.
Credendo Vides will provide a youth development solutions in Antigua and Barbuda through the establishment of Model United Nations workshops for high school and university level professors for the effective operation of MUN within classrooms locally and amongst schools regionally and internationally through the MUN Society.
We do not agree with the 2012 NHL CBA discussions and the lack of urgency on both sides to get an agreement in place. While it seems that this is an issue between the NHL and the NHLPA, the money in question is actually coming from us - the fans.
As the suppliers of revenue, we also have a right to demand our say in the negotiations and to lockout the NHL if we see fit.
As Canadian hockey fans, we support teams that haven't made the playoffs in years; we can easily support this petition.
To whom it may concern,
I am writing to you on behalf of a good hundred people (that I am friends with) who love and enjoy cricket and watch it into the early hours of the morning.
Currently, you are screening the World Cup on Fox Sports, live. This is brilliant as you are not bias to what games are on, you still show them.
But I, along with the many other supporters of the great game, believe we are being robbed of the exceptional cricket we could be seeing.
Today, Victoria beat Western Australia in a Bupa Sheffield Shield match by an amazing 7 wickets before lunch on the 3rd day. A brilliant effort by Andrew McDonald notching up 101 and Siddle's 87, as well as a brilliant 5fa by 'The Duke' - John Hastings. Imagine the viewing spectacle that would have seen! Yet we all had to hunch over our computer screens and watch the game, with a stationary camera that barely shows ground past the inner circle.
I understand that, as a broadcasting company, to be able to screen these matches, you need to generate money from it. But the public are continually asking the question, why have a dedicated AFL football channel, showing footage, interviews and behind the scenes coverage of a game, that is only played during the cooler months?
Cricket is a global sport, played by roughly 100 countries in the world, by men and women, in the cold and the heat and where playing is not dictated by your age, nationality, language you speak, colour of your skin and clothing you wear, it's a game that anyone, anywhere can play.
It's a game that brings everyone together in harmony.
Why is there no channel dedicated to screening cricket matches from around the world? Judging by the calendar of games around the world, there are games on every month. Even if you don't screen the games on a dedicated channel, even screen the domestic games live. You are able to show the English domestic tournament before Australian domestic. This baffles a lot of people and I see the question raised a lot on twitter.
If this email doesn't work, as I know the voice of one against a company isn't a lot, how can I proceed with this issue? I wish to pursue it on behalf of the entire cricket community in Australia who crave better coverage of the game they love. Petition? Likes on a facebook page? What will catch the eye of someone able to get this off the ground?
We are taking part in The Challenge, part of which asks us to make a campaign about something we are passionate about and we then created Overcome Hurdles.
Our aim is to get the council to fund for more sporting facilities for the physically and mentally impaired in the Warwickshire area.
Yesterday, the school announced to Dance Team that we will no longer be having our traditional Fall Pep Rally to ring in the fall/winter sports.
To prove that we, as a student body, are true Liners and want to keep our tradition alive, we are petitioning to the Board of Education to let us have our pep rally.
With permission, we ask that we can alter what would be the Fall Pep Rally, in order to be fair to other students, clubs, parents, and faculty members.
Also, with permission from the Board of Education, we would like to have a Spring Pep Rally to ensure fairness among all sports. Before it is decided to completely give up on the idea of a pep rally, please review all signatures below.
Thank you for your consideration.
The BBC is not transmitting coverage of the London Paralympics.
This contract has been awarded to Channel 4.
The BBC, our national carrier, should make an announcement and suggest its viewers go onto Channel 4 for at least the opening and closing ceremonies. The BBC should screen the best moments from the Olympics while these ceremonies are on Channel 4. The BBC should feature time tables of the events on Channel 4 where promotion for its own programmes would usually appear while the games are on.
The current circumstance is unpatriotic and discriminates against the finest our country and the world has to offer.
CRTC forced Bell Canada to have a French radio station to which Bell Canada has chosen to turn TSN 990 the only English speaking sports radio into a French ONLY radio station.
We need a second Springboro Junior High Volleyball Team! Currently the Springboro Girls Panther Volleyball program has been extremely successful with over 200 girls enrolled this season.
There is only one 7th and 8th grade team, each team is comprised of only approximately 12 members, so there will be many girls who have been improving their volleyball skills but will not be able to play this sport they have come to love, for their own school system. Many of the other sports have 2 teams, and it seems that with so much interest and involvement there should be two volleyball teams for 7th and 8th grade as well.
Please help us petition to keep our girls playing this fantastic sport by putting a second team for 7th and 8th graders in place. It's clear there will be no shortage of girls trying out, based on the huge popularity of the current volleyball program.
Thanks for your support!
Customers pay a large amount of money to see boxing fights on pay per view and in person. We should be given the fight that we have waited for by both sides.
Someone needs to step in to make this fight happen. Give both sides the equal amount of money and % percent to make the fight equal. The excuses have gone on far enough and the Fans will not wait any longer.
I’m starting to be disappointed with football. The reason: Thierry Henry handball against Ireland - France vs Ireland 1:1 - World Cup Qualifier 2010, who illegally put France in the World Cup leaving a sad and powerless nation Ireland very disappointed with the game.
Need Support so please sign petition to approve or look into the case for the return of vetoed Digital Media and Film Tax Credit. The Governor hasn't given any ground on the issue, though the Fort Lee Film Commission has Bergen County Senators Loretta Weinberg and Paul Sarlo in their corner.
The two Democrats pushed to reinstate the tax credit in October of last year so let's all pitch in by passing this Petition to see if we can make this happen for 2012.
Why reinstate the Film Tax Credit in the State of New Jersey?
1. It would create jobs.
2. It would bring television and film productions and visitors to the state and celebrate Fort Lee’s rich film history.
3. It would preserve New Jersey’s motion picture legacy.
The issue has caught the attention of Actor, producer, director, filmmaker and energy/green activist Antonio Saillant, who lives in New York City-[but grew up in Northvale, NJ], could well be called a Renaissance man – a man with many passions and talents.
I am looking to filming in NJ, a movie entitled The Golden Knights, is partly autobiographical and wholly inspirational. A movie about the 1979 Old Tappan football team which tells the tale of how a losing [team] began to [turn that streak around and] sow the first seeds of promise and pride in the school and surrounding towns. The whole turning point of the Golden Knights was then, where my older brother Angel [died in a 1987 car accident, but was the football team's captain] was on the 1979 team. “[After a very long losing streak] they started being successful and then they won states in 1985, and the journey continues.”
Every night, I see myself up late poring over ways to make this happen, reading your letters, and writing notes to people I met. I am doing that for you -- working hard every day to make sure we can finish what we all started together.
I need you to have my back.
With the BC Teachers walkout and the passing of Bill 22 it seems that the people most affected are the students. Already many high schools and middle schools have canceled all sports as a form of protest to the government. This is all good for the teachers but its terrible news for students.
The government doesn't care about public schools and even less about their sports, considering their children attend private schools, why should they. We have to stand up and make ourselves heard.
We have to show the government were not ignorant and that we too can protest and make ourselves heard!
Rugby League fans have been starved of an up to date video game of any quality. The last three console games based on Rugby League had glaring flaws.
EA Sports are the pinnacle of sports gaming and it would only take a few tweaks to their Rugby franchises engine (which I believe is a tweak of their FIFA engine) to make it viable.
It would sell like mad in Australia and certain other parts of the world and I don't think it would break the bank to any real extent.
Summary - We the undersigned are adamantly opposed to the University of Kansas (KU) scheduling any future athletic contests against any Big 12 Conference member that has chosen to leave.
This includes the recently departed Universities of Nebraska-Lincoln (NU) and Colorado-Boulder (CU), Texas A&M University-College Station (A&M), and most especially the University of Missouri-Columbia (MU), since it is the only departing school that has actively and publicly clamored for a continuation of athletic competition with KU.
Explanation - The departures of all of these schools hurt the future prospects of the Big 12 and its remaining members. MU’s decision to leave was particularly disruptive, coming after 8 of the remaining 9 teams had pledged to go forward, and raised conference viability concerns to a new high. At that time, many MU supporters and fans publicly exhibited glee at the fact that KU was left to twist in the wind regarding its future conference affiliation. The decision by MU and A&M to leave created significant contractual problems for the B12, given its multimillion dollar media contracts. Fortunately, the Big 12’s addition of Texas Christian University (TCU) and West Virginia University (WVU) in the summer of 2012 will enable it to meet its contractual obligations for the near future.
In the process of deciding to move to the SEC, MU repeatedly has cited its decision to leave the Big 12 as being the best business decision for the university as a whole, and especially its athletics department and student athletes. It has also repeatedly stressed to KU and to the public that it wishes to continue to play KU in the future. We find this to be totally unacceptable for the following reasons:
1. With MU finally breaking conference ranks with KU after contemplating such a move on a recurring basis over the last twenty years, there is no requirement or need for KU to play them anymore. While there may be a small minority of KU alumni and fans who would like to see the competition continued on the basis of tradition, many of us find that the bitterness between the fan bases of both schools has rendered it less palatable, and we have no desire to continue it just for the sake of tradition.
2. In the same vein as MU's argument for leaving the Big 12, there are no solid business (financial, market share, or brand influence) reasons for KU to continue to schedule MU. Indeed, analysis reveals that all of the business benefits for continuing the series would accrue to MU; we therefore believe that it simply is not a good business decision for KU to continue to schedule MU.
a. Advantages for MU. MU would succeed in averting blame for its having brought the rivalry to an end. MU would retain greater influence and interest in the Kansas City (KC) Metro area, as well as western Missouri, than it would have without its ties to KU. Moreover, MU wouldn’t have to worry as much about its decision to leave the Big 12 being blamed for adversely affecting KC sports economics.
b. Disadvantages for KU. KU has 9 football games to play each year in what is arguably at least the second best, if not the best, football conference in the nation. The 3 non-conference game openings will need to be planned to maximize their benefits to KU. With respect to men’s basketball, playing a program of KU’s elite stature would give MU non-conference appearances in prime time slots on national television that it would not otherwise get. KU can do much better with the networks by scheduling non-conference games against top flight national brands with far more impressive winning traditions and greater national market interest.
3. MU's actions significantly contributed to destabilizing the Big 12. If the conference had failed, at a minimum KU, Kansas State University, Iowa State University and Baylor University all faced uncertain conference affiliation futures and the possibility of significant financial hardships from its collapse.
With MU's decision to leave the conference, it has chosen to walk away from one of the greatest rivalries in all of sports, one that began even before KU and MU first became conference partners in 1907. The football rivalry, begun in 1891 and played 120 times to within 1 or 2 games of an all-time draw (depending on whether KU and the NCAA or MU is counting), is the oldest west of the Mississippi. Despite this longstanding tradition, it was MU that chose to abruptly end it by leaving the Big 12.
As alumni and fans, we enthusiastically endorse KU Athletic Director Sheahon Zenger, Men's Basketball Head Coach Bill Self, new Football Head Coach Charlie Weis, and all other KU Athletics Head Coaches in taking a firm stand against not scheduling MU for any future games in any KU sports. Their position refuses to reward MU for its damaging behavior, conference disloyalty, and woeful disregard for the tradition-rich rivalry.
Members of the national and local media, with the active encouragement of MU, have recently begun to bring public pressure to bear on KU to continue the rivalry. Many of them are not fully aware of the reasons for KU's position, and many mistakenly believe that most KU fans want the rivalry to continue. Nothing could be further from the truth, as attested to by an ongoing Lawrence Journal World poll that as of February 11, 2012 shows roughly 80% of respondents are against continuing the men's basketball rivalry.
Our names below attest to the fact that we do not want the rivalry to continue, so long as KU and MU are not members of the same conference, and we want you to be secure in the knowledge that we support KU taking its firm and principled position.
After doing a bit of research for a school project i realized that alot of mainstream sporting magazines target different races is vastly different ways.
For example the will post an African American athlete on the cover of S.I. and under will be a sentence that could've been used on the cover of an animal planet magazine and all the white athletes are showed as these God-like figures with light shining down on them
As anybody from the health or wellness industry knows, the best medicine is prevention.
That typically takes on the form of diet and exercise. To that end, there are many dietary type items that HSA and FSA’s can be used for.
Why not using it for exercise as well?
This is a petition to Major League Baseball to elect a new, fabulous commissioner (aka, yours truly).
If elected, I promise a live and squawking chicken in every dugout, to be the first commissioner on Twitter- @Awesome Commissioner, if it isn’t already taken- and fundraising bake sales and car washes for those unfortunate teams who need new stadium. Among other things!
A little background on me: I am a hot chocolate and baseball obsessed teen girl named Emily. I blog over at Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend about the intricacies of changeups in 14th century baseball (okay, not really) and the part-poke-eyeballs-out-with-forks part roll-on-the-floor-laughing thing we call “General Manager Speak”.
I know, the GMs are glaring at me already and I’m not even commissioner.
Anyhow! If you want to help me on my quest to become commish, sign right here, my friends. And have some hot chocolate for dessert in honor of me, too.
That is, thank you.
Gov. Mitch Daniels signed the Human Trafficking Bill into law January 30, 2012, saying he hopes it will “put up the ‘Don’t Try It Here’ sign in Indiana” just in time for a game that Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller says has a history of attracting increased activity in the commercial sex trade.
“Let’s hope that the law has a deterrent effect,” Daniels said, “and that these criminals will take their horrible business somewhere else.”
The law, which took effect immediately upon the governor affixing his signature, closes loopholes that have made it tougher for Indiana to prosecute those who have helped sell children into sexual slavery.
It also strikes a provision of state law that required prosecutors to prove that those who are accused of coercing children into sexual slavery used or threatened to use physical force to do so.
Advocates said it was the one step Indiana absolutely had to take before the game.
He know now the following statistics:
* Each year 1 million children are exploited by the commercial sex trade according to the U.S. Department of State, The Facts About Child Sex Tourism: 2005
* 100,000 to 293,000 U.S. children are in danger of becoming sexual commodities, according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children
* 12 is the average age of entry into pornography and prostitution in the U.S., according to The US Department of Justice Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section
* 33% of a sample group of female commercial sex workers in Chicago began in the sex trade between the ages of 12 and 15, with 56% being 16 or younger according to an investigation conducted by Schiller DuCanto& Fleck Family Law Center.
With the Super Bowl comes this crime-sex trafficking
We ask the Commissioner of The National Football League "if your part of the problem, your against the solution" ! Be part of the solution and promote awareness of this global problem that follows the Super Bowl by advertising against the insidious crime that comes to large sporting events like the Super Bowl

Stump the Schwab was a sports trivia show on ESPN from 2004-2006. It was a great show for any sports fan as it covered a wide array of sports.
It was cancelled for financial reasons so I figure if enough people want it back maybe ESPN will give it another run.
The Handball Association of Nova Scotia needs your support !! Rumour has it that the new YMCA replacing the South Park St facility in Halifax will NOT have courts!
Many have went through this before and there is ONLY one way to try and avoid NO Courts ...speak up , make noise and be heard.
Please sign the petition and help us be heard!
Dear Mr. Goodell,
The fans of the NFL respectfully request that you reserve fining players and coaches for very serious offenses only.
Fining a coach $75,000 is egregious and offensive to the fans of the NFL.
Handing out a $10,000 fine for wearing orange colored cleats is offensive to the fans of the NFL.
Fining a player $15,000 for retaliating against another player's dirty play (who was only fined $7,500) is offensive to the fans of the NFL.
If you're a Mets fan, you know why you need to sign this petition.
