Sometimes if it's not broke, it's best not to try to fix it. This is not an opinion shared by men of power in the sports world. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo aren't broken and don't need any fixing. 

One word can ignite so much hate. One word can create so much controversy. One word has so much meaning. That one word is on the verge of being banned by the NFL. A player saying the "n-word" on the field could become a 15 yard penalty. Is it possible to fairly and accurately police this? Even though this is a term that represents so much negativity, should a sports league go down the slippery slope of outlawing speech? As usual, Mike undoubtedly has some unpopular thoughts on another very hot button issue. 

With the Olympics now in the books, the NHL is in the midst of its second half sprint for the playoffs. David Malinowski, of SB Nation, the Hockey Guys, and Michigan Daily, joined the Buzz-saw to discuss trade rumors and the impact certain of possible trades. Has adding Ryan Miller made the Blues more of a cup favorite? Will Ryan Kesler be dealt? Which franchises need to make a move? And which franchises should stand pat? 

It's not just the NFL trying to impliment a controversial new rule into their game. Major League Baseall is looking to minimize contact at home plate. Do active catchers even support a rule designed to protect them? Will this actually increase the work load of umpires? 

Raymond Felton has taken the New York Knicks from just an awful team with some drama, to now a full fledged soap opera. Should a player be allowed to play while facing serious gun charges? Carmelo Anthony, please take a seat, have some pineapples, and listen to the Buzz-saw. 

There's nothing to fix here, as the Howitzer & Buzz-saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time....
