    Daneila Fifa10 is much better than pes at all craegoties. I can't wait to try for fifa11,because I know it has beem much improved than pes. Pes has a goalkeeper of shit. FIFA rules since 09,and it's seems it's keep that way. Anyway I am glad to see in each year the fight for the best football game,and I will choose the best game of the year. And this time is still FIFA. No matter it's called FIFA or PES, I just want to play to most realistic game. I don't want an arcade game,I prefer a simulator,and by so far FIFA is the best. At PES the players are like robots. PES has a lot to work to achieve the thing that FIFA has already: realism.

    Nicholas Hmm, if I remember redanig correctly the UW Athletic Department actually made money in 2009. It not only was self-sustaining in terms of budget, but it added an extra $3 million to the general budget for the University. UW athletics isn't a money sink for taxpayers from what I gather, so if they choose to pay their coaches and not exceed their budget, then more power to them.Athletics makes their money from ticket sales, season tickets, shared BCS money, away games with the likes of Texas (I believe that was a $900,000 or so payout), advertising (signs around the arenas, scoreboards, etc.), and donations. UW was in fact one of the few BCS schools to actually have a profitable athletics department.
