2015 NFL Playoff Hate-Off

When you're the fan of a team that doesn't make it to the playoffs, the NFL postseason can be a dark, cold and dismal place. You might find yourself tempted to send hate tweets to that running back who fumbled the ball on the goal line...or the quarterback who threw a pick 6 with victory within reach....or the kicker who freakin' shanked a chip shot that your grandmother could have hit. I mean, it was just 25 yards for the love of God. AAAAAHHH!!!!!! *Deep breaths* But there are other ways to channel all that negative energy that won't end in a restraining order. In order to survive a postseason without hope, why not focus your passions on hating all the teams that would make you … [Read more...]

Saints Player Arrested for Domestic Violence

The NFL's new domestic violence policy is sadly already about to get put to the test. New Orleans Saints linebacker Junior Galette is under investigation for allegedly pushing a woman to the ground outside of his Kenner home. A couple of years ago, this may have been an altercation that barely made it onto the league's radar. But in this post Ray Rice world, the league is anxious to prove it means business when it comes to getting tough with players accused of domestic violence. Under the league's new policy: "A baseline suspension of six games without pay for violations involving assault, battery, domestic violence, dating violence, child abuse, other forms of family … [Read more...]

It's not surprising, seeing as how Scott essentially made ESPN what it is today...a sports network with a pop culture twist. Here are some of the more moving tributes to Scott from the past … [Read more...]

The NFC South: A Bastion of Suck

To all the fans of teams in the NFC with winning records, on the outside of the playoffs and looking in, allow me to extend my deepest apologies on behalf of the NFC South. Because the sad reality is that a team from our division could end this season with a 6-10 record, and still make it to the postseason. In fact, an NFC South team could feasibly make it to the postseason, and as Jon Gruden so wisely pointed out during Monday Night Football game, still get a top 10 pick in next year's draft. I realize how infuriating this must be for fans of teams like the Cowboys and Lions, who may have their seasons come to an end in week 16, despite winning as many games as these NFC South … [Read more...]

What’s Cheaper: Redskins Tickets or Subway Sandwich?

You know that loose change you've got between your sofa cushions and in your car cup holder. Well, there might not be enough in there for you to buy a $5 footlong from Subway. But you will probably find enough change to afford a ticket to a Washington Redskins game. The team is performing so dismally this year, game tickets are being resold online for as little as four bucks on websites like SeatGeek. The cheap tickets are of course for those who don't mind sitting in the nosebleeds. Then again if you're a Redskins fan, the last thing you want is to actually be able to see what's happening on the field. … [Read more...]
