  • Darren Rovell Says Racism Is Okay If The Market Approves; ESPNers Flee

    Patrick Redford
    30 Aug 2015 | 4:12 pm
    Darren Rovell, a commemorative gift plate from the American Enterprise Institute that somehow talks and writes and uses social media, went there just now on Twitter, and it’s a sight to behold—a service to the nation, in its way. While a market fundamentalist with a neuron or two firing would probably avoid expressions of active enthusiasm over markets expressing the racist priors of their participants, Rovell is blessed with the self-awareness of a bucket of spackle, and so will just lay this sort of thing out there, presumably marveling at his own savvy as he does: Read more...

    San Diego Chargers players are mad at Seattle Seahawks rookie Frank Clark today, after he punched Philip Rivers in a scrum during last night’s preseason game in San Diego. As you can see, Rivers holds onto Clark after the play, which looks like it angered him. King Dunlap emphatically pulled Clark off of Rivers, which earned him a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty.Read more...

  • Not everyone see’s what makes Peyton Manning the best

    GB Bongiovanni
    19 Aug 2015 | 12:00 am
    Despite the news you hear, it’s not the record-breaking performances, stats, or winning records that Peyton Manning’s legacy should be judged on. What makes Peyton Manning the greatest quarterback ever to play in the NFL are the little things. Things that not every fan may notice. To many, it’s his accomplishments they will focus on and the upcoming records he could break. Odds are he will break these records in only a matter of time. Manning is now under 5,000 yards, 1,500 pass attempts, and 600 completions short of Brett Favre for all-time passing records. There’s…

    The ship has sailed on Washington Redskins’ quarterback Kirk Cousins. Once an overrated commodity in the off season, the Redskins were unable to pull the trigger on a trade and will now suffer. The Redskins’ backup quarterback drew interest from a number of teams during the 2014 NFL Draft, but none of them interested general manager Bruce Allen. One interested party, the Cleveland Browns, offered a fourth round pick during the 2015 NFL draft according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora. The Redskins were reportedly looking for a second-round selection. Things have been…
  • 49ers: The Curse of Jim Harbaugh?

    Mike Presley
    20 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    The San Francisco 49ers were a goal line stand away from winning their sixth Super Bowl back in 2012. Jim Harbaugh took the team to the Super Bowl in only his second season as Head Coach. Now in 2015 the 49ers are looking at rebuilding.  While you can look at the positives of signing Torrey Smith to replace Michael Crabtree, the negatives are just through the roof. It seems as if Jed York was blessed with the gift of Jim Harbaugh, and when he didn’t want it, he fired him. I’m sorry, I meant “mutually parted ways” with Harbaugh. Thus the Curse of Jim Harbaugh was born.
  • NFL Free Agency: Overrated Free Agents of 2015

    6 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    It seems like it was yesterday the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl, yet here we are days away from Free Agency. NFL Free Agency, one of the big reasons why the NFL has so much parity. Even with the cap increase of ten million from last season, teams are struggling to get under the cap by the new league year. Each year players are let go and new players are signed, as teams look to fill a void before the start of the draft. Though, buyer beware as a player may not be who you think your getting. You see it every year where teams over pay to lure free agents, but also they just simply…
  • Why the Bills won their trade with the Eagles

    Jordan Hall
    3 Mar 2015 | 4:29 pm
    The Philadelphia Eagles traded All-Pro running back LeSean McCoy for Buffalo Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso. Without a doubt a trade that came out of nowhere. Rex Ryan is certainly trying to make a splash in his first offseason as Bills head coach and without a first-round draft pick in this year’s draft, Ryan is doing whatever he can to elevate his offense. In his five season as a running back C.J Spiller has only rushed for over a thousand yards once and has never started a full season. He has shown signs of being an All-Pro but last season he only played in a total of nine games due to…

    Amari Cooper torched SEC defenses for three years at Alabama, and he’s already looked mighty impressive in training camp. But roasting an All-Pro cornerback like Patrick Peterson of the Cardinals this badly? Maybe Cooper got some advice on how to rip apart Peterson from former Alabama receiver Julio Jones?

'You have to hold on to the football,' head coach Jim Harbaugh said. 'It's just not possible to put runners out there that fumble the football.

    The Weeknd is having one hell of a great year, but when it came to the 2015 MTV VMAs, he was but the fourth major star to take the stage to perform. (It’s totally understandable that the Nicki Minaj-Taylor Swift beef-squashing performance got top billing at the show, but how did Macklemore get in ahead of Abel on the performance schedule?) To be fair, Macklemore’s performance was a much bigger production than what The Weeknd did. The latter went light on the theatrics, instead letting the hit “Can’t Feel My Face” stand on its own. You can do that when you…

  • Best Golazos from World Football This Weekend

    30 Aug 2015 | 6:48 pm
    World-class talent, the adoration of one of the biggest fanbases on earth, good looks and a knack for sublime goals: Where did it all go wrong for James Rodriguez? The Colombian is among those who feature in our latest weekend golazo ranking, the quality of which is so high that the following excellent efforts were unable to scratch the top 10: Nani's 97th-minute free kick winner for Fenerbahce, Yann M'Vila's lovely dead ball for Sunderland, Valter Birsa's Pirlo-esque strike for Chievo against Lazio and the opportunistic overhead kick from Bournemouth's man of the moment Callum Wilson.
  • Updated 53-Man Roster Projections for Jacksonville Jaguars Post-Preseason Week 3

    30 Aug 2015 | 6:47 pm
    With three preseason games completed and initial roster cuts made, the Jacksonville Jaguars are trimming down and focusing on the final product coming up to the regular season. It's been a productive preseason so far, with each game and week of practice providing predominantly positive news. The injuries have been plentiful, but not devastating, and the Jaguars have to be thankful for that. The games haven't been perfect, but the team has performed in a way that has produced hope and excitement for the upcoming season. For the first time in years, it feels like the Jaguars are…
  • Angels' Punchless Offense Has LA Tumbling out of AL Playoff Picture

    30 Aug 2015 | 6:38 pm
    It seems like an absurd thing to say about a team that features Mike Trout, masher of baseballs, but the Los Angeles Angels are punchless. And it could cost them a crack at the postseason. After falling 9-2 to the Cleveland Indians on Sunday, the Angels sit at 65-65, in third place in the American League West and 3.5 games off the pace for the second wild card. A sequence in the first inning Sunday perfectly encapsulated the Angels' offensive futility. Kole Calhoun led off with a single, but Indians starter Josh Tomlin promptly picked him off at first base. Trout then smacked a triple but was…
  • Borussia Dortmund vs. Hertha Berlin: Winners and Losers from Bundesliga Game

    Borussia Dortmund continued their excellent start to the new Bundesliga season Sunday afternoon when Hertha Berlin made the quick trip west to the Westfalenstadion and were duly outdone by three goals to one against the former German champions.  Manager Thomas Tuchel will have been proud of another solid performance from his new-look side, having now seen the Black and Yellows score 11 goals and concede just one in their opening three games of the Bundesliga campaign.  Hertha will travel back to the capital with their tails tucked firmly between their legs, hoping to quickly bounce…
  • Updated 53-Man Roster Projections for Detroit Lions Post Preseason Week 3

    30 Aug 2015 | 6:15 pm
    The first roster cut-down day is at the door with the final act following closely behind. It's time for the Detroit Lions to pull the trigger on some tough decisions. And the players know the deal. Head coach Jim Caldwell laid it out in simple terms for Michael Rothstein of ESPN: "The ones that stand out are the ones that we keep. That’s how we look at it. It’s a competition, you know. It’s not Disneyland. It’s difficult." That's mostly the truth. Some players will be ushered past that requirement on the promise of potential. It's the same in every other aspect of…

  • J.P. Howell Attains 2016 Player Option

    Mark Polishuk
    30 Aug 2015 | 7:43 pm
    Dodgers left-hander J.P. Howell made his 52nd appearance of the season in tonight’s game with the Cubs, and also his 120th appearance since the start of the 2014 season.  By reaching this milestone, the $6.5MM option the Dodgers held on Howell’s services for 2016 has now been converted into a player option.  (Hat tip to Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register.)  Howell’s option will become official provided he doesn’t end the season on the disabled list. The veteran southpaw signed a two-year, $11.25MM deal with Los Angeles in December 2013 that paid him a $3MM…

Shapiro’s name surfaced in connection to the Toronto job last week (via FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal) and the hiring was seen as increasingly likely to happen as the days passed.  Since current Jays president Paul Beeston announced he was going to retire after the 2015 season, the Jays have been…

    Switch-pitcher Pat Venditte earned his first Major League win today, tossing two scoreless frames to help the Athletics notch a 7-4 victory over the Diamondbacks in 11 innings.  While Venditte is known mostly for his singular pitching style, he’s also posted a decent 3.31 ERA over 16 1/3 relief innings for the A’s in his rookie season.  Here’s more from around the AL West… There is a growing sentiment within the Angels front office that David Freese should be re-signed, MLB.com’s Alden Gonzalez reports, though things could change once the team hires its new…
  • Extension Candidate: Jake Arrieta

    Charlie Wilmoth
    30 Aug 2015 | 4:11 pm
    In the midst of a second straight exceptional year, Cubs starter Jake Arrieta appears likely to sign a big contract at some point, whether that’s an extension with the Cubs or a free-agent deal following the 2017 season. The Cubs, however, have not begun extension discussions with Arrieta (as Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times recently reported) and it’s not clear whether they’ll do so. Arrieta is already under team control for two more seasons, and the Cubs might feel that adding additional pitching talent this offseason is a higher priority than signing a pitcher…
  • Padres Claim Chris Rearick, Designate Caleb Thielbar

    30 Aug 2015 | 3:22 pm
    The Padres claimed left-hander Chris Rearick off waivers from the Rangers, the team announced (via Twitter).  In a corresponding move, San Diego designated southpaw Caleb Thielbar for assignment. Rearick is back with the Padres just a few days after the Rangers themselves claimed him off waivers.  Rearick had been designated for assignment by San Diego and was quickly DFA’ed again by Texas to make room for young lefty Andrew Faulkner.  Rearick made his MLB debut earlier this season with the Padres, and he has a 12.00 ERA over three innings in the Show. San Diego claimed Thielbar off…

    A few years back Hail Mary Jane ran a series titled "Kind Bud Primer."  Here is one installment from that series.  Enjoy.   "Kind Bud Primer” is dedicated to the belief that there is always something new to learn about the cannabis plant. Kind Bud Primer, a HMJ project, is part of the College of Cannabis Knowledge. Go learn something. From the moment it germinates every cannabis plant produces a hormone called phytochrome.

Otherwise... You are paying attention to all this, aren't you?   At least eight (and as many as 17) of the 23 major-party Presidential hopefuls have said, or have strongly indicated, that they have consumed marijuana, including Jeb Bush, Lincoln Chafee, Ted Cruz, George Pataki, Rand Paul,…

    The Queen of Clovers
    26 Aug 2015 | 11:20 am
    Washington's legalization of recreational marijuana has had a lot of impacts on the state, many of them positive. A recent NPR piece shows that, more two years after legalization, more arrested drivers (suspicion of DUI) have marijuana in their system. Most stoners know that pot stays in your system for a while, around 2 weeks, and that having a drug in your system doesn't necessarily mean you're currently under the influence of it. "Last year, they saw an increase in the percentage of blood samples showing THC -- but they weren't distinguishing between active THC and what's known as 'carboxy…

    29 Aug 2015 | 6:00 am
    It's really happening. At this very moment construction crews are working to construct a massive surf park in Austin Texas which will be powered by WaveGarden. You could say I'm a little more than excited! But with the California drought and fear of it spreading well beyond our state borders, many question the practicality of filling a surf park with so much water for "entertainment" purposes.Luckily, Texas recently experienced a huge storm dropping large amounts of water across the state. So much rain, that many areas had extensive flooding. Throughout this storm, the Austin surf park…

    In years past, many surfers have looked outward when it came to dating whether that involved models, professional athletes from other disciplines or childhood friends from back home. But lately, the list of surfing power couples has been getting longer including Lakey Peterson/Thomas Allan and Jack Freestone/Alana Blanchard. The latest involves Matt Banting and Ellie Jean Coffey who both reside in Australia and are very talented surfers.

What I didn't anticipate was that Red Bull would be leading the quest with a contest titled Red Bull Unleashed which is scheduled to take place in less than 30 days! 24 surfers…

  • Texas State Bobcats at Florida State Seminoles - 9/5/15 College Football Pick, Odds, and Prediction

    Mark
    30 Aug 2015 | 10:42 pm
    The Texas State Bobcats travel to Doak Campbell Stadium to challenge the Florida State Seminoles. The Texas State Bobcats have a familiar look in 2015 with many of the same faces that were responsible for last year’s 7-5 record. The defense is experienced although whether that is good or bad remains to be seen with opponents able to move the chains in whatever way they saw fit. That might mean the Bobcats will have to match last season’s 34 points. Dual threat quarterback Tyler Jones was a solid producer with nearly 2,700 passing yards and almost 700 rushing yards. CJ Best and Brandon…

    11. New Mexico State- New Mexico State returns 10 starters on defense this season. Their offense however will need to be figured out quickly. I expect their defense to improve but I don’t see their offense scoring enough points to compete with these teams. 10. Georgia State- Georgia State had a rough year last season winning only one game. Playing Georgia State last season was a guaranteed win. This year they return 16 starters and will try to be more competitive this season. 9. Idaho- Idaho is coming off a season where they won one game. They have improved a little bit with the fact that…

    The Marshall Thundering Herd open 2015 with a visit from the Purdue Boilermakers. The Purdue Boilermakers ended 2014 at 3-9 and were outscored 32-24 so the numbers weren’t good overall but weren’t absolutely horrendous. It looks like Austin Appleby will at least begin the season under center but if fumbles and throws interceptions right out of the gate his job could be in jeopardy. The star of the receiving corps is Danny Anthrop if he can stay healthy but he needs a few others to step up and help out. Appleby and Keyante Green are the top returning runners that have plenty of experience…

    The Philadelphia Phillies head to the Big Apple to take the field with the New York Mets. The Philadelphia Phillies are a mystery with all the new faces and that probably won’t change for awhile. The Phillies chance at a three game winning streak and a sweep of the Padres didn’t last long in a 9-4 loss. Rookie Alex Asher’s debut wasn’t good wit four runs plated on eight hits including two homers over 5.2 frames before the pen was charged with five runs.  The Phils posted ten hits with Cameron Rupp going solo with Cesar Hernandes driving in a run and scoring. Rookie Jerad Eickhoff…

    Sports Are 80 Percent Mental

  • Did Pete Rose's Competitive Spirit Drive Him To Gamble?

    21 Aug 2015 | 7:45 pm
    For many young baseball fans, Pete Rose is a name that is better known for being a baseball player banned from the game for gambling rather than the all-time leader in hits, not to mention games played, at-bats and singles.  In 1989, Major League Baseball banned him from the game due to accusations, which Rose later admitted to, of betting on baseball games including on his own team, the Cincinnati Reds, as a player and a manager. While Rose contends that he never bet on the Reds to lose, which would be a conflict of interest, MLB still suspended him indefinitely. This month, Rose could…
  • Choose Your Words Carefully When Motivating Your Young Athletes

    21 May 2015 | 1:58 pm
    Your kids want you to be proud of them. This need for a parent’s approval can be a powerful or destructive force when it comes to youth sports. When we communicate goals for our budding superstars, the wording we choose can make all the difference.   New research out of Ithaca College shows the effect parents can have on their kids’ game-time anxiety, which can directly impact their performance and overall enjoyment of the game. Miranda Kaye, a professor in the Department of Exercise and Sport Sciences at Ithaca, knew from previous research that a coach exerts the primary influence…

Actually, researchers at the University of Illinois have found that just an hour of fun, active play not only gets kids in better shape but significantly improves their cognitive functioning.Plenty of previous studies have shown the link between fitness and better academic performance in the classroom but it wasn’t clear if this was a cause and effect relationship or just that smarter kids…
  • Training Your Eyes To Hit That Curveball

    17 Feb 2015 | 12:16 pm
    “Just keep your eye on the ball.”  Seems like simple enough advice for a young slugger at the plate.  That may work in the early years of Little League baseball when the pitches they see  have not yet cracked 50 mph.  But as the fastballs get faster and the change-ups get slower, having quick eyes and an even quicker perceptual brain is the only way hitters will be able to “hit it square” with a round bat and a round ball.   Which is exactly why psychology researchers at the University of California - Riverside (UCR) teamed up with the college’s varsity…

    3 Feb 2015 | 7:19 pm
    Young athletes often hear phrases of encouragement like, “dig a little deeper” or “you have to want it more than they do” or, ideally, “be mentally tough.”  For most kids, these words from a coach, a parent or a teammate go in one ear and out the other.  But, what if there was actually some scientific substance to the words?  Could the smiling, confident face of a coach delivering a pep talk actually have a subliminal effect on performance?  While the conscious brain may dismiss this positive talk, the subconscious mind may actually be putting it to work,…

    Yes, Brittney Griner dunked, but it was the smallest player on the floor for the Washington Mystics, Ivory Latta, that made most impact. The Phoenix Mercury weren’t going to let the Washington Mystics get ahead by more than one basket, and so they trailed by one point for almost the entire game. Only the clock would stop the Mercury from ever pulling ahead as time ran out, and the Mystics hung on for the win. Phoenix (17-12) fell to Washington (16-11), 63-71, at the Verizon Center for the opponents’ first matchup this season. The largest margin of the game began halfway through…

    It’s the year 2015 and the sport of lacrosse has come a long way since the days I played in Anne Arundel County toward the end the 90’s. Possibly the most historically important advances in the sport are in the evolution and innovation of the equipment.  As a lacrosse player who graduated in 1999 the options for which lacrosse stick you could use were much more limited than they are now. For instance in my heyday every player in the county used one of three sticks. the Viper, Excalibur, and Turbo. That all changed on December 5th, 2005 when two inventors, James T. Dill, & William H.

    After 9 seasons with the Red Sox, we know nothing more than we started about Clay Buchholz. He’s still a mystery. It began early. After hurling a no-hitter in his second major league start, he collapsed to 2-9 in 2008 and spent part of the season in the minors. His only really successful season was 2010, when he went 17-7 with a 2.33 ERA,  led the league in ERA+, and was chosen to the All-Star team. Every other campaign was marked by injuries (he has been on the DL several times) and up-and down performances. An example is the 2015 season. On May 26, he was 2-6 with a 4.33 ERA. On…

    Rick Porcello was actively off the disabled list and the first team he had to face was the same one that shelled him in his last MLB start.  Porcello would have no easy task either as he was up against ace Chris Sale.  Both starting pitchers did their jobs and kept the offense off the scoreboard, but the win would go to Porcello when the Red Sox offense got to the White Sox bullpen. Chris Sale and Rick Porcello got into what is classicly called a pitcher’s duel from early on in the game.  Inning after inning went by and the game was still tied 0-0.  Both Porcello and Sale pitched…
  • Wade Miley Can’t Get the Win for the Red Sox

    The Red Sox hoped to get two wins in a row against the White Sox.  They had Wade Miley on the mound and while he had a lead for part of the game, he wasn’t able to hold onto it when he gave the lead back to the White Sox in the bottom of the 7th. The White Sox scored first last night and when all was said and done they would score last.  The White Sox scored a single run in the bottom of the 2nd inning when Miley gave up an RBI single to Sanchez.  The Red Sox offense got that run back and then the lead in the top of 3rd when Mookie Betts hit an RBI double and then came home to score…

Born in Russia before coming to America, Jones built a solid reputation as an amateur before turning pro in 2014 and has since won her first three fights. It’s a development that Jones feels comes from a base of her humble beginnings. “I was adopted when I was 11, so I grew up in an orphanage, so discipline is not too far from my regular schedule,” Jones told MMAWeekly.com. “I think that’s kind of one of the reasons I fell into fighting…

  • Man vs. trout vs. drought

    Aaron
    18 Aug 2015 | 2:51 pm
    We can adapt to California’s crippling, three-year drought: we use less water, let our lawns dry up, import the rest of the water we need from elsewhere. The Southern California steelhead trout doesn’t have so many options. And the fish is already behind the eight ball because we humans have paved over and built on so much of its former habitat. The trout spawns up streams in Southern California that are no longer hospitable to it because, among other things, man-made dams block its path. In the Santa Ana Mountains where those fish once swam, the dams are starting to be torn down.
  • Nostalgia for abalone is the reason to bring them back

    Aaron
    4 Dec 2014 | 1:41 pm
    It’s a tale all too common: it’s tastes good so we end up eating waaaaaaaay too much of it. Except with abalone, the consequences weren’t just an expanding waistline and newly-punched holes in old belts. It was driving the species to near-extinction. Though once common, you’d be hard-pressed to find an abalone on the Southern California coast because, well, we ate them all. But half a century ago, you’d be hard-pressed to not find an abalone. In some spots, you had to walk over abalone just to get to the water. Plucking them off rocks and grilling them on the…
  • Solar’s time is now

    Aaron
    20 Oct 2014 | 2:07 pm
    With incentives the way they are, there’s not much reason to pass up on solar. Federal tax credits. Multiple financing options. Credit for electricity your house produces but doesn’t use. But those incentives are about to change. The federal tax credit is expiring and the crediting system for unused electricity is about to change. Sure, prices for the solar panels themselves will remain low, and financing options will remain numerous. Solar will remain viable for years to come, but incentives don’t get much better than this. So the time for solar is now.

    Aaron
    15 Jul 2014 | 1:46 pm
    Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. Jaws. Sharknado. All perpetuate what is, actually, largely a myth that sharks commonly attack people. And an attack at the Manhattan Beach Pier doesn’t help the sharks’ image. Maybe the fish should hire a PR firm to improve its reputation among swimmers and coast dwellers. Or, we could just listen to the scientists, long distance swimmers and shark researchers who know them best. Because, in reality, we pose much more of a threat to the sharks than they do to us.
  • Stuck with the tab: L.A. County must clean up runoff

    Aaron
    6 May 2014 | 2:14 pm
    Los Angeles County didn’t create the pollution problem, exactly, but now it must clean it up. The runoff that flows from parking lots, industrial yards, driveways and just about everywhere else carries chemicals and contaminants that sicken swimmers in coastal waters. Problem is, finding the source of those pollutants once they reach county drainage systems that carry it to the ocean is near impossible. But there is a way for the county to build drain systems that filter out pollution and prevents it from dirtying the water. And now, with the Supreme Court upholding a circuit decision…

In subsequent years, Cliff Carpenter’s Fantasy Football Guide became our bible, but the first couple of years were rough. Our first draft took nearly 3 hours.

    In the span of one week, Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun hit three milestone home runs.

  • How Does Adrian Peterson Stack Up Against Other Running Backs?

    Erik Voldness
    13 Aug 2015 | 10:01 pm
    Last season, millions of people were counting on Adrian Peterson to be a stand out in fantasy football. He is known as one of the most talented running backs in the game, and may predicted him to be one of the three top point producers. Unfortunately, things really didn't turn out as planned last year. He played in just one game before being suspended for the rest of the year thanks to child abuse allegations. Now that his punishment has been lifted, Peterson is going to be looking to have a pretty big season for the Minnesota Vikings. As people get ready for fantasy football league 2015, are…
  • MLB GMs Undervalue Defense

    Erik Voldness
    11 Aug 2015 | 11:01 am
    The book Moneyball has gotten a lot of media coverage over the last decade, often being credited (incorrectly) for the growth of advanced stats in the game. I'm not even going to talk about the movie that had almost no relation to the book. But the main point of the Oakland Athletics strategy in Moneyball was to find skills that other teams were undervaluing. At the time the book was written, on base percentage was very undervalued. That's no longer the case, so teams need to find new ways to find undervalued players.Defense continues to be an extremely important part of the game but it…
  • Adrian Peterson: Out of Touch

    Erik Voldness
    26 May 2015 | 1:37 pm
    Adrian Peterson is one of if not the top running back in football. There's little doubt that the Vikings will be a better team next season with AP as their starting running back, and for that reason the Vikings continue to insist they won't trade him.I don't think the Vikings are as against trading him as they've indicated publicly, but rather I think no teams stepped up and made an offer the Vikings deemed fair. If Dallas wants to give up multiple first round picks, I think you'd see the Vikings moving on from their talented star. Using AP's cap money to get two solid defensive starters…
  • Looking At Danny Santana

    Erik Voldness
    5 Nov 2014 | 10:01 pm
    Danny Santana had a fantastic rookie season. Santana's .319/.353/.472 slash line and his OPS+ of 130 are fantastic numbers for anyone, let alone a 23-year-old in his first big league season. Because of Santana's youth and the fact that he had what appears to be a breakout rookie season, the expectation for Santana is that he will continue to improve and build upon his great rookie season.To be blunt: That's highly unlikely. His strikeout to walk ratio was 98 to 19, and very rarely do players who can't control the strike zone continue to hit at a high level year after year.It's important to…
  • Aaron Hicks: Not a Bust (yet)

    Erik Voldness
    4 Nov 2014 | 10:01 pm
    Aaron Hicks is not yet a bust. I realize that's an unpopular opinion amongst the Twins faithful, but a simple understanding of his numbers makes it a fact.Calling Hicks a bust seems to stem from him struggling offensively over the last two seasons in the big leagues. The thought process seems to be that he got two years to show he belonged on the team, and he struggled. Of course, each season was less than half a season's worth of at bats, so Hicks first two years in the big leagues are really the equivalent of most rookies first seasons.To be fair, Hicks hasn't just struggled with the bat,…

  • Utah fans love the rivalry too

    Utah fans have enjoyed rubbing BYU fans’ faces in the fact that the Utes are in a P5 conference and the Cougars are not. I can live with that kind of rivalry banter. What I can’t live with are Ute fans pretending like they don’t care about the rivalry game now that they’ve been invited to eat at the cool kids’ table. That’s just silly. You can’t blame the fans entirely. Many of them are simply following the lead of Utah athletic director Chris Hill, who said that the “deep, dark dirty secret is [Utah] fans are not disappointed” that…

    The Cougars head to Pasadena, Saturday September 9th, to face the UCLA Bruins led by head coach Jim Mora Jr.. I was pleased to get with Mike W. R. of GoJoeBruin.com for this game preview and travel guide for the BYU fans making the trip out to The Rose Bowl. These two schools aren’t unfamiliar foes. Cougar fans definitely remember the last time these two squads met. So do Bruin fans, according to Mike: Q: Has there been enough time for UCLA fans to forget about what happened in 2008, or is there revenge on their minds? Nope. We remember and WE WANT REVENGE! That was of course a bad…
  • This Week In WWE: NXT TakeOver, SummerSlam, Tough Enough

    Three nights in Brooklyn, and the WWE sold out each show. And each night, the fans got a good show, whether it was NXT TakeOver, SummerSlam, or Monday Night Raw. ====NXT TAKEOVER RESULTS (Saturday) This would be the bigger crowd an NXT event has ever had, so how did they do? JUSHIN “THUNDER” LIGER def. TYLER BREEZE – Liger had a decent run in WCW in the 1990’s, but his main career has been in Japan. It was interesting that the 50-year-old wrestler finally made his WWE debut and did so on an NXT special. Liger’s still got it. It was a high-energy high-spot affair.

    A monumental month lies ahead of the BYU football program this September. It’s an opening slate that the Cougars may not have ever seen before, but something that they should get accustomed to in independence. With national powerhouses and recognizable programs in their sights, BYU has the chance to do something extremely special. However, with Nebraska, Boise State, UCLA and Michigan due up first, there is little room for error. In my not-so-humble opinion, there are just a few things BYU has to do in order to pull off the “September-To-Remember” this year. If they can…

    I recently found some rare never before seen footage of the 2014 coaching staff before fall camp began.   Now, I am only joking but after watching the Utes offense last season, most fans can agree that the playbook seemed a little skinny. During most games it seemed like the Utes playbook only consisted of about 6 plays with a majority being run plays. Conservative? Yes Just trying to secure that W? Yes Did it work? Yes- in most games Did the Utes have a successful season? Yes During the Las Vegas bowl, it seemed that the Utes opened it up a little more offensively and played a little…

  • 2015 NFL preseason scores and results: Raiders dominate early before Cardinals rally to win, 30-23

    Dave Hogg
    30 Aug 2015 | 8:36 pm
    Raiders led 15-3 at halftime before Cardinals backups scored three late TDs. It has been a long time since the Oakland Raiders' silver-and-black has been worn by a defense that matches the intensity of their fanbase. That might be changing. Sunday night, Khalil Mack led a dominant first-half performance by the Oakland defense, sacking Carson Palmer twice and forcing a fumble by David Johnson. With Arizona's offensive line unable to protect Palmer, he also threw a pair of interceptions, both by Nate Allen. Sadly for the fans in the Black Hole, the Raiders weren't able to take advantage of the…
  • Jake Arrieta throws no-hitter against Dodgers

    Louis Bien
    30 Aug 2015 | 7:52 pm
    Jake Arrieta struck out 12 for the first Cubs no-hitter since Carlos Zambrano did it in 2008. Jake Arrieta pitched a no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday night, throwing 12 strikeouts in 116 pitches and walking just one batter in nine innings. The 2-0 win improved the Chicago Cubs to 74-55 on the season, and gives Arrieta a 17-6 record. Arrieta has emerged as a legitimate Cy Young candidate this season. Heading into Sunday night's game, he had a 2.22 ERA and was eighth in Major League Baseball with 178 strikeouts. Arrieta had taken a no-hitter past the seventh inning three…

This is Ronda Rousey's first MMA fight in 2010 when she took 23 seconds to beat Hayden Munoz at CFL - Ground Zero. Kudos to the person who uploaded this video, because their description was prophetic. "On August 6, 2010 Olympian Ronda Rousey made her MMA debut as an amateur for Combat Fight League's Ground Zero. Her first opponent was Hayden Munoz. Don't blink and make sure to follow this girl. She's for real." Ronda looks legitimately concerned about her opponent too. This is her first ever…

A nasty tackle sparked a fight against the Baltimore Ravens and DeSean Jackson is saying vile, stupid, sexist crap on his Instagram account. Washington's PR department must be on fire right now. That's the only possible excuse for why this still exists on his account. If there's one saving grace it's that this is an isolated incident and no other NFL players would dare to approve of this garbage. Certainly not New York Giants…

  • I Form Big – PA Power O Waggle Left

    Steve
    12 Aug 2015 | 7:53 pm
    Play Type: Playaction Pass Setup Once you’ve beaten the defense down with your power running game, its time to take advantage of those safeties creeping up to the line and hit the defense with a playaction pass. This particular pass has a bunch of big targets available for the quarterback, with two tight ends running right across his face, while also giving him the option of putting his head down and just carrying the ball himself. This is a great call when you know the defense is going to sell out on the run and you want to make them pay – a 3rd and short in the red zone for example.

    Finally, there is an answer to the long-discussed runner’s high and the impending euphoria that goes with it — and its name is irisin. This hormone is directly released into the bloodstream, which is often why athletes may feel strong and invincible during or just following any intense workout, run, or game. There’s been heated debate over the cause of this bodily high and scientists have now confirmed that it’s likely irisin that triggers it. The hormone is thought to boost our expendable energy and control our blood sugar levels, helping you work hard at the end of a sprint…

  • BIG TEN PREVIEW: CAN OHIO STATE BE CHALLENGED?

    Kevin Krest
    30 Aug 2015 | 7:34 am
    I’ll just state this up front: Compared to the other Big Five conferences, and despite having the defending national champions as a member, the Big Ten is pretty much a joke in relative terms. Between soft non-conference schedules and a lack of tough inter-divisional matchups, there is very little drama expected this season. Michigan State takes on Oregon, Wisconsin has tot contend with Alabama and Ohio State travels to Va. Tech to avenge their only 2014 defeat, but other than those games there isn't much competition outside the conference for the top teams. Ohio State, Michigan State and…
  • THE NCAA JUST CAN'T GET IT RIGHT

    Kevin Krest
    25 Aug 2015 | 11:28 am
    In what appeared to be a move in the right direction, the NCAA has allowed universities to provide to athletes, as part of an athletic scholarship, additional compensation that covers the full cost of attendance. Previously, they were entitled to tuition, room, board, books and fees. That didn't do much to provide the student-athletes with walking around money. Now, as I've been advocating for quite a while, scholarship athletes that come from less affluent families won't be treated as second class citizens on campus from an economic perspective. But instead of coming up with an across the…

    As a long-time Washington Redskins fan, I can certainly understand owner Dan Snyder's resistance to yielding to the sustained pressure to change the nickname of the storied franchise. But it seems to me that he's giving up a chance to do something many owners are striving to do every day: Make a boatload of money. If most owners changed team colors, uniform scheme or their logo, they would immediately be charged with attempting to coerce revenue from their fan base by seizing the opportunity to sell new jerseys, pennants and other team related paraphernalia. But Snyder would instead be…

There is no other position on the field that they are more focused on than the quarterback. In Washington’s first preseason game of the year against the Cleveland Browns, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin, III completed four of his eight passes for 36 yards. He rushed once for three yards to convert on a huge third-down play. Backup signal caller Kirk Cousins came out slinging the rock and went 12 of 14…
  • The Anatomy of Two Different Types of Redskins Fans

    17 Aug 2015 | 4:53 pm
    Picture By: G Fiume (Getty Images) The Washington Redskins have had a proud tradition-based franchise for over 80 years and, when traveling around the country, one can’t help bumping into a fan who wants to see the team go back to “The Glory Days…” those days that were epitome of fun for “old timers” like myself who are now in their forties (the early forties, thank you). If you are reading this and happen to be 35-years-old or older, you remember the entire region being shut down for Dallas week. You can recall the shaking in RFK Stadium (the previous team stadium).

  • Could Braxton Miller Start At H Back

    26 Aug 2015 | 8:32 am
    When Ohio State finished fall camp this past week, Urban Meyer stated that his goal is to get Braxton Miller ready to start at H Back when the Buckeyes open the season. He’s not quite there yet but he is getting close. That position crowed with Dontre Wilson, Curtis Samual and Jalin Marshall already. But Miller is dynamic and athletic enough to find time.

    OSU tailback Ezekiel Elliot was featured tonight on ESPN’s E:60 in a story titled The Rise of Ezekiel Elliot. The story discusses how Elliott turned heads during the finals games for Ohio State last season shortly after his good friend Kosta Karageorge passed away. Buckeyes knew about Elliott during his freshman year on campus. ESPN reports that Elliott is a serious contender for the Heisman this coming year. The 20 minute show was developed over a number of months and included Elliott’s parents, Stacy and Dawn. The feature goes all the way back to his high school days in St Louis. The…

    Recently, Ohio State decided to remove the ban placed on Terrelle Pryor. The talented football player will resumed his sports career on Friday at Ohio Stadium. However, when it comes to participation within the intrasquad scrimmage, Terrelle Pryor will have to sit by the sidelines. While he will attend the event, he cannot play because of an injured hamstring. Four years have passed since Terrelle Pryor has visited The Horseshoe. Before this new transition to wide receiver, Pryor played for the Buckeyes. After he left The Horseshoe, Pryor suffered a ban from Ohio State. Fortunately, the ban…

    In an interview with Pete Thamel of Sports Illustrated, Braxton Miller announced his plans to switch from playing quarterback to playing in the receiver position for Ohio State. Miller was originally to have competed for the starting QB slot with J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones. Miller first discussed the possibility of the switch with the team's strength coach in April. He approached coach Urban Meyer with the idea one month later. Within a couple weeks, he was meeting J.T. Barrett on the practice field after sunset to practice catching balls. Miller missed the entire last season due to a…

His comments were made regarding recent changes to first-round draft picks. The comments came after the Crimson Tide lost the brutal playoff game against Ohio State, and Saban has been accused of not accepting ownership for the loss, choosing instead to focus on the rule changes to the draft grades.

    John Beilein was voted best offensive coach in the country by his peers in an anonymous poll by CBS Sports. In honor of Beilein’s offense, we enlisted the help of Gibson Pyper of HalfCourtHoops (@HalfCourtHoops) to break down some of Beilein’s most effective sets. Today we start with the early dribble hand off. This is a great set to examine because it shows how effective Michigan can be in unsettled and transition situations despite not being thought of as a traditional running team. Here are Pyper’s thoughts on Michigan’s early dribble hand off action: What makes…

Hayne continues to impress with the San Francisco 49ers, with his chances of making the squad of 53 seemingly increasing by the day. The ex-NRL star was signed on by the 49ers in March of this year, with the club handing him a three-year deal worth a minimum of US$100,000, but with no guarantee of making the 53-man roster for the upcoming season.

    Arsenal have 7 out of 12 points on the table and a brutal Champions League group stage. They need a striker. With “own goal” leading the team in scoring, Arsene Wenger has big plans for the final 48 hours of the transfer window. According to the Metro, the Arsenal boss fully intends to sign an extra striker before the summer transfer window closes in less than 48 hours. To date, Olivier Giroud is the only Arsenal player with a goal (1) while the only two other goals the Gunners have scored this season have come off own goals. “We are open and we are in the transfer…

After securing a £55 million transfer for VfL Wolfsburg star Kevin De Bruyne, Manchester City were just a few pounds short of breaking the Premier League transfer record.

This would mark a world record transfer fee, which is currently held by Real Madrid for their £85.3m signing of striker Gareth Bale. The 22-year-old midfielder joined Juventus on a free transfer deal in 2012, which makes him look like a colossal steal at this point. Pogba is expected to command a…

  • Time for the Redskins to move on from Robert Griffin III

    Thomas Threlkeld
    30 Aug 2015 | 7:17 pm
    No one should be surprised that the front office and coaching staff — the football people — at Redskins Park don’t like QB Robert Griffin III’s game and want to move on from him. That was the case last season, even before new GM Scot McCloughan, who was hired in January 2015 and who has no ties to Griffin at all, joined the front office. And no one should be surprised that moving on from RG3 is “meeting resistance from team ownership.” Team owner Dan Snyder — and his public mouthpiece Bruce Allen — resisted Head Coach Jay Gruden’s efforts…

However, the team rallied behind quarterback Kirk Cousins to take a 14-13 lead before halftime. Colt McCoy came in to start the second half, quickly leading the Skins to two more touchdown drives and Washington finished with the win, scoring 31 unanswered points to take a bad start into a rout.

    Washington Redskins General Manager Scot McCloughan has kept a promise he made when he was hired — to keep the team’s core players. Earlier this offseason, the Skins inked OLB Ryan Kerrigan, the team’s best defensive player, to a 5-year extension making him the NFL’s third-highest paid outside linebacker. Today, the Skins signed a contract extension with LT Trent Williams, the team’s best offensive player. The five year deal is potentially worth $66 million, but the important number is the $43.25 million in guaranteed money for Williams, making him the highest…

With a torn Achilles, Galette will miss the entire 2015 season.  That is a big loss for Washington’s defense.  Galette would have combined with Ryan Kerrigan to form one of the NFL’s most formidable pass rushing duos. Galette will likely be replaced by second-year Trent Murphy and rookie draft pick Preston Smith.

  • The Best Places For Deer Hunting In Southeast Idaho This Fall

    Mark Griffin
    30 Aug 2015 | 9:19 am
    Last year’s deer hunting season was one for the record books, and wildlife managers believe this year could be even better. According to Idaho Fish and Game, hunters successfully harvested 61,200 deer across the state last year, the most since 1992 and a 25 percent increase over 2013’s numbers. Wildlife biologists contribute the recent deer bonanza to the warm winters the state has experienced. Cold and snowy winters can wreck havoc on deer populations, particularly with young fawns. Fish and Game counted 7,416 deer last winter in the rugged Unit 76, which borders Wyoming to the east and…

What makes these sights greatly successful for close battle and quick reaction circumstances is the way that EOTech’s reticle is vast but then it doesn’t hinder the field of perspective, while remaining very unmistakable in any light, focused in the extension paying little mind to the perspective point. It doesn’t divert the administrator. The dab is obvious to the client no…

    27 Aug 2015 | 1:50 am
    It’s week 4 already in the Premier League and, whilst there are no big clashes this weekend, there are some games with very strong statistics. We’ve analysed 5 games below. Newcastle vs Arsenal Arsenal haven’t excactly made the start they would have been hoping to, but they will be hopeful of winning another 3 points from a fixture they traditionally do well in, and have won on their last 3 visits to Newcastle. Newcastle may have snatched a point at Old Trafford last week, but I confess the only thing I want to back them for is to be relegated. Arsenal to win @ 4/6 (Coral)…
  • Fedex Cup Tips: The Barclays

    25 Aug 2015 | 9:13 am
    It’s the first week of the Fedex Cup on the PGA Tour, and the now traditional end-of-season spectacle has a few aspects to consider when formulating your betting strategy over the next few weeks. 125 players start the first event, but it’s worth noting that only the top-100 players progress to the second of the 4 events that make up the Fedex Cup; and those players ranked 95-125 have both obvious motivation to play well this week, and the pressure on them to do so. Of course there’s also the not so insignificant bonus of $10,000,000 to the winner, and that’s not…

    St. Louis Cardinals’ Lance Lynn reacts after teammates turned a double play against the Arizona Diamondbacks during the fifth inning of a baseball game Monday, Aug. 24, 2015, in Phoenix. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) It was a day defined by one big inning and a lot of zeroes. Lance Lynn and the Cardinals blanked the Ryan Vogelsong and the Giants, and despite hitting into three double plays, the Cardinals put up six runs to take the second game of three games in San Francisco, evening the series at one game apiece. Strong command of his fastball and cutter allowed Lynn to go seven shutout…

(Photo by Jason O. Watson/Getty Images) San Francisco—Who could have guessed that at the end of August, the Giants would be buoyed by the bat and strong defensive play of a bespectacled rookie second baseman named Kelby Tomlinson? It’s certainly not what most Giants fans expected when the season began, given the youth and All Star caliber play of their regular starting second…

It was one of the All-time greatest shots made in a Game 7 with the championship title on the line.

(Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images) San Francisco—Michael Wacha has not pitched at AT&T Park since he gave up a walk off home run that eliminated the St. Louis Cardinals from the NLCS, and propelled the San Francisco Giants to their third World Title in five years. Needless to say, it should be an interesting experience for him, even if Travis Ishikawa is not in the building.

  • Umpires Are Less Blind Than They Used To Be

    Noah Davis

    Dusty Dellinger knows how difficult it is to be an umpire. “There’s an old saying that they expect you to be perfect from day one and get better,” the former Major League Baseball official said over the phone. As the director of Minor League Baseball Umpire Development and the Minor League Baseball Umpire Training Academy, he knows how elusive perfection can be.Correctly calling 140 pitches flying 90-plus mph and breaking six inches or more is a near-impossible standard.

    Lost in the manic hustle of the trade deadline’s aftermath was some of the most significant news for the upcoming baseball offseason. Dave Dombrowski, the general manager of the Detroit Tigers since 2002, was fired from his post, becoming perhaps the most valuable free agent in baseball.I say perhaps because valuing front-office employees is difficult. Their Baseball-Reference.com pages are filled with transactions, not stats, and a team’s record is such an imperfect measure of its talent that it’s hard to judge a GM by a season’s success.

  • Game Theory Says R.A. Dickey Should Throw More Knuckleballs

    Neil Paine
    13 Aug 2015 | 12:51 pm
    Of all the strategic elements of baseball, few are more fascinating than the poker game between pitcher and hitter. Each participant knows his strengths and those of his adversary, and that knowledge informs both players’ tactics in a complex entanglement of actions and counteractions.If the best pitch in a hurler’s repertoire is his fastball, for instance, he might be inclined to use it really frequently. But batters will pick up on that proclivity, and in time, the fastball will lose its effectiveness if it’s not balanced against, say, a change-up — even if the fastball is a far…

Before being hired by the Mariners, Zduriencik worked for the Mets, Pirates, Dodgers and Brewers. Most recently, he was the director of scouting in Milwaukee for nine years.

He struck out a career high 11 batters (9 via curveball) in just 6 innings while walking 4 and allowing only 2 hits as the Royals got back in the win column 5-3 over the Baltimore Orioles Thursday afternoon in front of 31,155 screaming fans.

The defender, who made his debut last season, made 10 appearances for them last season but appears to be out of the first-team picture this season under Louis Van Gaal. This loan would be for the season and would offer the Scottish champions, who were knocked out of the Champions League on Tuesday, some defensive cover ahead of Virgil Van Dijk’s proposed move to Southampton for £11 million. Is it what Celtic need? I am not sure that Blackett is…

    Jason Whitney New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman may want to stay away from Yankee Stadium for the next…well probably forever. This is because according to reports via Sports Illustrated, back in 2010 when negotiations became heated between Derek Jeter and the Yanks, Cashman reportedly told The Captain, he’d rather have many other shortstops over him. H/T: ESPN: According to Sports Illustrated, Jeter, in the midst of talks after the 2010 season, asked Cashman whom he’d rather have playing shortstop for the Yankees.

    Brandon Cauley Defense wins championships. The term that is synonymous with the great American luxury of football. Defense won last year’s Super Bowl with Malcolm Butler of the New England Patriots picking off Russell Wilson at the goal line, which will go down as the most egregious play call in Super Bowl, or arguably football history. Fast forward to now, players have new teams, coaches have new homes, and the rookies have inked their first professional football contract.

None of that fake “tough guy” stuff you see when the benches clear at real baseball games! But this is probably not something the New York Yankees want to see out of one of their pitchers that is owed another two years and $50 million. C.C. Sabathia has been a little more on edge lately, however. Whatever the case, the struggling Yanks pitcher, who’s actually pitched very well his last couple starts, was involved in a brawl in the streets of Toronto after leaving a…

    He finally got it done. After taking his fourth no-hitter into the seventh inning over the past two seasons, Jake Arrieta finally completed the feat against the Los Angeles Dodgers in L.A. on Sunday night. The words to describe Arrieta’s performance are the same you’ve already seen bandied about for most of his Cy Young caliber season thus far – masterful… brilliant… simply and utterly dominant. For a while the game appeared reminiscent of Kerry Wood’s 20 strikeout performance in 1998, a one-hit effort that to this day many believe should’ve been…

    Baseball in the city of Chicago this season has been tough for one fan base, while the other is reveling in success with it’s young team. The Cubs, for now, have a comfortable lead over the San Francisco Giants for the second Wild Card spot in the NL and the White Sox are just hanging outside of the playoff race in the AL.

It was further proof that the failures of the past two seasons don’t belong solely to former head coach Marc Trestman.  While he did not do a good enough job during his time on the headset, equal criticism should belong to the man who hired him.

    15 Aug 2015 | 7:22 pm
    Photo Source: VikingsDigitalDiaries It wasn't that long ago that the Pontiac Silverdome was home to the NFL's Detroit Lions; 14 years ago to be exact. The Lions began playing at Ford Field in downtown Detroit in September of 2002. The Lions had been playing in suburban Pontiac, MI since 1975 and the move to Ford Field in 2002 was motivated by a number of things. Firstly, Lions ownership had the desire to own their home stadium outright. They also wanted more club and luxury seating installed at their new home, something that the Silverdome did not adequately provide. There was also some…

Both of them just lost their star wide receivers for the season with ACL injuries, Kalvin Benjamin (CP) and Jordy Nelson (GBP).

It’s highly stylised and deliberately filmed and edited in a way that removes any hint of revelation from the final product. Plus it’s so infuriatingly vacuous, glorifying the kind of vampirific celebrity worship that might just be tearing the last collective strands of intelligence left in our society out by the hair-extensions. And it’s boring.But at its conceptual core, reality TV is really just honesty on film. It’s fly on the wall…

After an even first half, United pulled ahead on 48 minutes through Juan Mata, before goals from Jordan Ayew and Bafatembi Gomis won it for Swansea. It was the Swans’ third 2-1 defeat over the Red Devils in the space of 12 months. And despite an obvious lack of creativity, van Gaal claimed in his post-match interview that all his team lacked was a little luck. He told Sky Sports: The opponent changed their shape and we…

According to a story in Sunday’s AS, Real see Moreno as a potential back-up for first-choice Marcelo, after letting Fabio Coentrao go on loan to Monaco for a season. Veteran Alberto Arbeloa and youngster Nacho have deputised for Marcelo in the past but AS claim that Benitez wants a third option, and that could very well be Moreno. Moreno joined Liverpool for £12 million in 2014, after a barnstorming season for Sevilla where he was seen as a key cog in the side that won the Europa…

It’s an imaginary piece of paper which serves as a guideline to rank each man. Of course some qualifications are more pertinent than others. For example, how many Super Bowls has that guy won?

With plenty of targets and Peterson back in the backfield, i expect a lot more from Teddy and i think he is ready and very capable.  Teddy…

    The AFC North has been the most dominating division in the NFL easily over the past eight seasons.  The competition is usually between three of its four teams the Steelers, Bengals and Ravens.  In 2014 The Browns also made a case for themselves staying in the playoff hunt until Week 12 before regressing badly.  The division made history in 2014 by having all four of its team three games above .500 for the first time ever in the NFL.  It also sent three teams to the playoffs something that has occurred just six times since w2002 when the divisions we realigned to the current format. …
  • 2015 NFL Preview: Kansas City Chiefs

    Tim Campbell
    18 Aug 2015 | 11:51 am
    Kansas City Chiefs Prediction: 6-10 (third place AFC West)   For the Kansas City Chiefs and Head Coach Andy Reid the questions revolving around this season begin with an offense that completed zero touchdown passes to wide receivers in 2014. When discussing the arrival of Reid in KC I doubt anyone would have predicted the passing attack to be a concern, but with the weapons Kansas City held last year it’s hard to place the blame solely on the head coach. Placed in a prime position to make noise in an AFC West that may be up for grabs the Chiefs will struggle to find their footing…

    While everyone is arguing about and projecting division and Super Bowl champs I figured why not look at the opposite. Each division has what are known as “cellar dwellers”. These are the worst teams in their respective divisions. Last year these teams were the Bears, Browns, Buccaneers, Jets, Raiders, Rams, Redskins and Titans. So who will they be this season? I decided to explore this by looking at the worst team in each division from last year and predicting which ones seem like they can get out from the basement.

    Cleveland Browns Prediction: 5-11 (last place AFC North)   No other fan-base in the NFL has to endure more harassment then the Cleveland Browns faithful yet they continue to support their franchise in a way that a lot of teams envy. It’s a testament to the type of town Cleveland is and it’s the type of dedication that second year Head Coach Mike Pettine is trying to develop within his team. The Browns will be an improved unit in 2015 but it will not be enough to make an impact in a very competitive AFC North where the difference between winning and losing will be inches, not…

    I leaned against the wall. It’d been a terrible season. Nothing helped. Whatever I did made it worse. It wasn’t them. Wasn’t the kids. It was me. Been there? Coaching is hard. Not all the time, but a lot of the time. This time it was wicked hard. Yet as sucky as it was I learned something valuable: my coaching experience lacked soul (but I could fix it). I was going through the motions. A ghost playing the role of a leader. There were three specific sins I made which eroded the soul of my coaching that season.

That is where things are positive and you’ve been constructive. That’s where you want to be — but that’s not where most coaches end up.

For his fight against Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather was given a guarantee of $100M, plus a piece of the gate.The obvious question, to which I have only guesses, not answers, is why Rousey attracts so much attention?

On August 16th 2015 – or a year ago if you like things nice and straightforward – Aston Vila secured a hard-fought win away at Stoke on the opening day of the season.

    Arsenal’s loss to West Ham was hardly the ideal way to start the season, but to go in on Mesut Özil shows a startling lack of knowledge… Against West Ham on Sunday, as they slumped to a shock 2-0 home defeat, Arsenal were surprisingly flat in attack, in addition to giving up two sloppy goals to the visitors. Even before going a goal down in the first half, the home side had few clear-cut chances and struggled to break down the well-organised away defence, and eventually resorted to crosses from the full-backs which were never likely to succeed.

Or screaming about the three exercises that you MUST be doing if you want to shed those extra pounds. As a fitness professional, I always laugh when I see this. Not only are they all either inaccurate and/or misleading, they make people think that improving someone’s health can be reduced down to doing a “weird trick” or that weight loss is related to just a few magical factors. The reality is that being healthy is multifactorial, and way more complicated…

    And in one fell swoop, the hard work done by Liverpool’s defence to dispel the problems of last season were all undone. Liverpool crashed to their first defeat of the season, an unexpected one, at the hands of the Premier League’s most inconsistent performers, West Ham United. The Reds mustered just one shot on target but the Hammers scored thrice and left Liverpool reeling from a defeat that has raised questions, yet again, about Liverpool’s lack of cutting edge post Luis Suarez and the leaky defence. On paper this game was a set three points for Liverpool, especially after their…

Gregory Polanco gunned down Jose Reyes at the plate last night in a key play of the game.  The run would have given the Rockies the lead heading into the bottom of the 8th inning.  Instead, the Pirates were able to keep the score tied and pick up the go ahead runs in the bottom half of the inning.
