The smell of a steaming plate of Kailua pig still can make Leo Goeas long for his native land of Oahu, Hawaii. But, eight years into an NFL career that has included three teams and two coasts, the transplanting of Goeas is complete.Goeas has purchased a spread of land in Colorado, where he plans to build his final home after his football career ends. He, his wife and three children have settled into their two-acre Fallston spread. And the Ravens are banking on Goeas becoming a fixture on their offensive line at left guard.

The venomous conflict of the 2004 presidential election, which has pushed leaders to surprising new levels of partisan hostility, has spread to ordinary Americans. Intolerance of political differences is growing, expert observers say. And while Republican and Democratic activists deplore the trend, each side blames the other. "The anger, in my opinion, is due to Bush and his policies and his inability to articulate them," said Bob Mulholland, a Democratic national committeeman from California.

PALM DESERT, Calif. -- The Ravens moved a step closer to signing their first unrestricted free agent yesterday when they made an offer to guard Leo Goeas of the St. Louis Rams.The Ravens also lost their second free agent -- linebacker Ed Sutter -- when he signed a deal with the Cincinnati Bengals. No terms were announced.Sutter, who played mainly on special teams, didn't have a big role in the team's plans."He's a fine contact football player, a hard-nosed guy, but with the quarterbacks in our division, we need speed [at linebacker]

The Ravens added two players to their roster yesterday, but teriminated the contract of veteran left guard Leo Goeas, who missed the final five games of the 1997 season after tearing a pectoral muscle.Goeas failed the preseason physical, which possibly makes him a candidate for an injury settlement with the team. But it was apparent that the Ravens were unhappy with his play at the midseason point.The Ravens signed free-agent defensive back Alfred Jackson and tight end Scott Richards. Jackson has been in the league for seven seasons; Richards was waived last Aug. 18 by Kansas City.

PHILADELPHIA -- The only saving grace of Leo Goeas' forgettable night was that it occurred during the preseason.Five months ago, the Ravens signed the free agent to a three-year, $2 million contract, then installed him as the starting left guard. The idea was to stabilize the offensive line with a proven veteran, after the Ravens decided to move Wally Williams from guard to center.Goeas looked most unstable at some important moments last night, when he made two critical mistakes by drawing penalties during the second quarter of the Ravens' 24-13 loss to the Eagles at Veterans Stadium.

After failing to establish a running game and blowing a 21-point lead in a 42-34 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers two weeks ago, the Ravens are considering changes in the offense for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins at Memorial Stadium.The Ravens (3-3) had 52 yards rushing against the Steelers, 26 in each half. With center Wally Williams returning to the starting lineup after missing the first six games with an injured Achilles' tendon, coach Ted Marchibroda is contemplating another change at left guard, with Ben Cavil replacing starter Leo Goeas.

As several NFL teams continued to court cornerback Antonio Langham and special teams player Bennie Thompson -- two of the Ravens' unrestricted free agents -- the club yesterday was preparing to release veteran left guard Leo Goeas.An announcement could come within the next few days, according to Goeas' agent, Mark Bartelstein.The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Goeas was signed to a three-year, $2 million contract last March. He started seven of 11 games for the Ravens (six at left guard, one at center)

The Ravens had another changing of the guards yesterday, moving veteran Leo Goeas back into the starting lineup in place of first-year player Ben Cavil.Goeas, who was signed to a three-year, $2 million contract in March, said offensive line coach Kirk Ferentz informed him of the move Monday, and the transition took place yesterday in the Ravens' first practice for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles at Memorial Stadium.Cavil started for Goeas the past four games at left guard, but the two probably will alternate quarters for the next couple of games.

In one of the team's most active days during the off-season, the Ravens were close to completing deals yesterday with free agents Broderick Thomas, a Dallas Cowboys linebacker, and Leo Goeas, a St. Louis Rams guard, while also having trade discussions with the Oakland Raiders about the Ravens' No. 4 overall selection in the draft.Terms of the deals were not available, but Ravens owner Art Modell said the announcement on Thomas could come as early as today. Goeas has agreed in principle to a three-year deal, said Ozzie Newsome, the team's vice president of player personnel.

WASHINGTON -- Two veteran pollsters, Republican Ed Goeas and Democrat Celinda Lake, have been working together for nearly seven years now in an unorthodox partnership. They jointly conduct extensive voter surveys and then provide their own analyses of the same data, each with only a modest spin in favor of his or her own party. They call their product the Battleground Poll.Comfort zoneThis year's edition suggests that the 1998 congressional elections are likely to be an unusually low-key battleground.

The Ravens began thinking about possible moves yesterday after finding out starting left guard Leo Goeas will be out the rest of the season with a torn left pectoral muscle.The Ravens did get a bit of good news, however, as trainers reported little swelling in the left ankle of rookie running back Jay Graham, who is expected to make his second start Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals at Memorial Stadium.Goeas, who started for the first time Sunday since being benched four weeks ago, left the game late in the third quarter.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Let's call it the Ravens' version of the Immaculate Reception.OK, so it was just a fumbled snap from center, hardly the dramatic equivalent of Franco Harris' famous game-winning catch from the 1972 playoffs.When you're the Ravens, winners of just six of 19 games, a fumbled snap will have to do.It's not as if they have experienced many other major strokes of good fortune since moving from Cleveland.Mostly, they have spent their time inventing new ways to lose games they should have won.But yesterday, at last, they invented a way to win that smacked of an otherworldly hand.

Ravens center Quentin Neujahr is questionable for Sunday's game against the New York Giants, but the rest of the offensive line seems to have answered any questions about its play so far this season.Neujahr, in his third season, twice went down with a sprained right ankle in the Ravens' 23-10 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday at Memorial Stadium. He missed most of the second half.Trainer Bill Tessendorf said X-rays of Neujahr's ankle were negative, and that there was not much swelling, which was a positive sign.

The first day of training camp isn't supposed to be as eventful as this one.The team's star running back, often accused of being overweight, showed up 15 to 20 pounds lighter than he was a month ago after a diet of Lean Cuisine and oatmeal. The starting left guard, acquired through free agency, has an injured back and his practice status is already listed as questionable for the rest of the week. The starting quarterback, who has a reputation for being too quiet, seemed annoyed at the Ravens' top three draft picks holding out of training camp.

The sight of center Quentin Neujahr hobbling on a sprained ankle reminds Ravens offensive line coach Kirk Ferentz of a disturbing trend in Baltimore. The Ravens can't seem to keep a center in the lineup for long.After they lost veteran Steve Everitt through free agency to the Philadelphia Eagles in March, the Ravens confidently plugged in Wally Williams as his replacement. In late April, Williams ruptured his Achilles' tendon. Williams is on schedule to return next month.In the meantime, rookie center Jeff Mitchell was lost with a torn anterior cruciate ligament early in training camp.
