OHB says this will definitely be his last year. If he means on the planet, we accept. Looking forward to seeing the New Orleans Saints, Dallas Cowboys and others send the sink at him. The OHB says he "owed it to" the Minnesota Vikings to return. Clearly, much has changed in the past week or two when the subject of owing the Vikes anything wasn't even uttered.

Tony Dungy is by all accounts a decent guy, and football man. But him suggesting that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell look into the language used by New York Jets coach Rex Ryan on NFL's Hard Knocks is laughable. Dungy is the exception to the sporting language that applies universally - one of f-bombs as a starting point. Interesting though that he took up for dog killer and herpes dispenser Michael Vick but wants to crack a guy for colourful language on HBO.

French and Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka was suspended for 18 games by the French Football Federation for the shenanigans in South Africa.

Those crazy Icelandic footballers are at it again. A pair of videos here. Not sure what wins for best celebration, but the baby one sure is creative.
