    Sure they do, just the one with the round ball and only one player on each team uses his/her hands (unless Thierry Henry is on the team)...

    I'm actually rather pleased to see that the NFL wouldn't bend to the blackmail and pressure being applied to them by people who basically think immigration laws and national borders are fine for every country in the world... except this one.

    Amen to that... Radical groups on the left have attempted to hold states hostage for decades. Good for Arizona and the NFL for not acceding to their rediculous demands...

    Getting upset about sports venues is just plain stupid and usually hypocritical.

    Much as I supported the sporting sanctions against my own country of South Africa during Apartheid I wish at least consistent.

    Human rights abuses in North Korea, Sudan, Iran and so on and so forth are far worse then the SA apartheid government overall and yet they're allowed to participate in many more international events then we ever were.

    And lets be clear again I think my country deserved it, I'm merely talking about consistency and if the fact that with all the human rights abuses in the world at this moment if people wanna get upset about a city in the United States of America getting a sporting event which should be free of politics then they need to seriously re-assess what their values are... punishing sports players, fans and cities for the actions of their state of federal officials does not make anything right.

    And by the way this is in no way a repudiation or endorsement of Arizona's immigration laws.

    "Hispanic" is derivative of hispānicus and Hispania. So the word Hispanic has not been in the language for four centuries.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Do you know how to read a dictionary? It clearly says that the origin was from 1575-1585... very clear... the Latin origin of the word dates back more than a thousand years...

    Been reading the thread. I have deduced that people who say the word Hispanic was "invented" recently either don't know how to do a Google Book search or they think Nixon time traveled to 1940. In any case:

    The United States news - Google Books

    Hispanics in the United States: an ... - Google Books

    Hispanics - Google Search

    These are books written from 1900 to 1940 with the word "Hispanic" in them. I didn't even bother looking for earlier books simply because the premise that the word Hispanic was invented by an American politician reeks of stupidity.

    Hispanic groups must be turning cartwheels over the entire NBA season being cancelled, which will kill professional basketball in Phoenix all year!
