Signing Day 2016

National-Signing-Day-Hats-750x400

There might not be a more joyous and heart-wrenchingn day for college football fans then NSD. Collegiate sports is unique in that public opinion moreso than any other sport feel that they can sway and influence the decisions of  18 year-old men. At times it’s comical, but there are plenty times where you feel that […]

The NFL really is trying its best to put enough stress on the San Andreas fault in the past month. To recap, Rams are going to be calling L.A. home for the foreseeable future. There was a high probability that the Chargers were going to join the Rams and coexist in union of sorts starting […]

L’s of the Week Vol II

  After a week, there was a brief moment that we worried that there wouldn’t be enough ammo for us to make a living off of what we hoped would be a weekly segment. Yes, it was brief because we were given plenty of gifts from pop culture to argue against the contrary.  So enough […]

The Fading Accolade of the Pro Bowl

2012 Pro Bowl Hawaii

It’s an honour, presumably when a player gets named to the Pro Bowl. Prestigious in a sense, when it is belted out with other honours when a player is inducted into Canton or garners their fair share to stack on their resume. The problem has become the game itself, where players who are otherwise healthy […]

L’s of the Week Vol.I

We’re human. Just to put it out there. So we are vulnerable to making mistakes, such is one of the qualities that binds us all together. Just like mistakes we are likely to find the humour in the mistakes of fails of others. So why not highlight the mistakes that made us chuckle sometime during […]

Heading into Sunday’s AFC Championship game, the running headline was the personal rivalry between quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. In the end, it was Brady whose season concluded in Mile High, through no fault of his own. The Denver defense flushed Brady out of the pocket plenty of times, forcing him to throw into […]

It comes down to this Sunday for the final four teams left in the playoffs. Only two will move on to the goal set out during the off-season of making it to Levi Stadium, home of Super 50. Naturally the headlines for each game have pointed fans towards the the legacy aspect of the QBs […]

The NFL Still Needs a Beast

From his first carry in week one against the then St.Louis Rams, things did not seem right with star running back Marshawn Lynch.  Lynch who is used to being surrounded by defenders overtime he takes a handoff, was just unable to turn Beast Mode in that game, and for the majority of the regular season. […]

The NFL’s L.A. Love Thing

Inglewood-stadium2-inside-01-05-16

It’s been an ongoing campaign by the Rams, Raiders and Chargers to campaign to get back in the LA market. While already having 3 teams in the state of California was clearly not enough, getting back into the 2nd biggest market in the U.S. (NY #1) was a goal that the league has been pinning […]
