A great example of how to burn a bridge

Kevan Barlow used to be a 49er. Then he got traded to the New York Jets. Then he compared his former coach Mike Nolan to Adolph Hitler, and we're pretty sure he wasn't referring to their looks. Eeesh!

Well after getting traded, we can understand that Barlow was upset. He's leaving his first team, his home and it's the Bay Area after all. Though it's not like he was traded to Cleveland or something; New York is among the best cities in the world.

But to compare your coach to Hitler?! Well, that's a bit much. Even for us. And we can handle a lot. Adolph Hitler is the world's greatest villain. He is a cold-blooded murderer, etc., etc., etc.

Mike Nolan is, well, a football coach. And not a great one yet. Though, Kevan, Hitler? That's just out of line. And sure Barlow apologized for his actions, but let's just say that he won't be playing for Nolan again anytime soon.

In other news: Terrell Owens remains sidelined with a hamstring injury caused by an over-inflated ego.

Could you guys do a profile on Hazel Mae? I think she should definitely be on your list.

If you remember, the Nazis had one hell of a football team. Well, kinda slow, but they used the blitz effectively. And really, isn't Nolan more of a Pol Pot or a Stalin?

I can see the comparison... Hitler lost WWII, and Nolan lost a lot of games last year!
