The Real DeflateGate Legacy: An Asterisk Next to the “Patriots Era”

January 25, 2015

Major League Baseball will always have to live with the asterisk next to the stats bulked-up players compiled during the “steroid era.” Now the National Football League will have to live with any records set during the “Patriots Era” lasting from about 2002 until at least 2015 . . . maybe longer. My proof? Well, first you should read the book SpyGate by Bryan O’Leary to get a bit of…

It was just 2012 season that the Baltimore Ravens went 10-6 in the regular season, marched through the AFC playoffs and won the Super Bowl 34-31 against a favored San Francisco 49er team.

NFL Futures for Teams, Players Change in an Instant With Browns Trade of Trent Richardson to Colts

It seems to have come out of nowhere. News broke late today that the Cleveland Browns had traded their star young running back, Trent Richardson (the third overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft), to the Indianapolis Colts for a first round draft pick.  And this comes on the heels of another announcement today that already sent Browns fans (and fantasy football players) for a loop: that third string quarterback Brian…

You also have to have some great underdog stories like that of 68-year-old Kenneth Lind, a retired Army officer and great grandfather. Since he retired, Lind has had some extra time to…


NBA Lockout Update: Won’t Anyone Think of the Oddsmakers?

Right now, NBA Commissioner David Stern is only cancelling pre-season games. Who cares, right? To borrow a phrase from former star Allen Iverson, “We’re talking about practice, man. I mean, how silly is that?
