Marshawn and the Media

The Super Bowl goes down in less than two days, and hopefully that will mean no more talk about deflategate or the other story that won’t go away…..Marshawn Lynch.  The Lynch-media situation has injected some much needed juice into what has largely been a one trick lead-in to the big game.  Since both teams have been here before, and there isn’t much left to talk about.  There are no questions…

Aldridge Interested in the Wizards?

PORTLAND, Ore.- Saturday, January 24 is the day that Portland Trailblazers F LaMarcus Aldridge made his return to the court after missing two games due to an injury in his left hand; the only thing is this is two days after he announced that he would miss 6-8 weeks as a result of a torn ligament in his thumb. Aldridge returning to the court just two days after his announcement…

Where do we rank CM Punk (Part II)?

OK, in my last post I talked about where Punk should rank all time among WWE championship level performers, and said that he’s clearly behind Bruno Sammartino, Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, the Rock, and yes, John Cena.  Unlike any of those men he was never given an unchallenged run at the top of the card.  You can argue that he deserved it from late 2011 through 2013, but ultimately they…

A Clown Show and it’s Fans

Looks like this may be the beginning of the end for RG3 in Washington.  He hasn’t been perfect, I’ll admit that.  But last time I checked he wasn’t responsible for covering opposing teams receivers.  He’s not the one getting blown up by defensive lineman and he’s not the one fumbling the ball after completed passes.  Even the interceptions he had yesterday were on a tipped pass and a bobbled catch…

Who’s looking out for them?

Derrick Rose got himself in hot water again over the amount of time he chooses to spend recovering from injuries, largely because of the really bad choice of words he used to defend the practice.  Saying that you take off games not to save yourself for the playoffs but to save yourself for future meetings and events with your kids doesn’t sit well with most people.  His teammate Joakim Noah…

Top Five Survivor Series Moments

Survivor Series is coming up in three weeks, and it could be the moment when the Authority is sent packing if their team loses the main event.  The show has been the place where lots of memorable things have happened, and in my opinion these are the five biggest ones: The first one – Survivor Series first aired on Thanksgiving of 1987.  The entire card consisted of 10 man/woman tag…

Don’t blame Kobe

So now we’re blaming Kobe Bryant for the Lakers not landing any top tier free agents.  At least that’s the take of Henry Abbot over at ESPN.  According to him, a lot of Kobe’s teammates over the years have hated his guts and believed that playing alongside him puts a target on your back for his ire/jealousy and makes a potential scapegoat if things go bad during the season.  Also,…

The Origin of the Mess in Washington

The Redskins are 1-5, and the whole team is a disaster right now.  But the big story has been the situation at quarterback, a neverending source of drama and a divisive topic that has almost split the fanbase in two (at least on the internet; maybe not so in real life).  Before the season started there were people who wanted Kirk Cousins to replace Robert Griffin III as the starting…

Salary Caps are Garbage

On the heels of recent comments by Lebron James and Kobe Bryant that the owners better not cry poormouth in the next CBA negotiation after signing a new TV deal, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban suggested that the owners might be willing to give up max contracts if the players were willing to give up guaranteed contracts.  What wasn’t discussed was the salary cap.  That task fell to a few media…
