The inclusion of women within the world of the NFL and professional sports has been a long time coming. While I can't see a woman playing a prominent role on an NFL roster (although I wouldn't rule it out) that shouldn't preclude them from making a valuable contribution within the league.
Another strange weekend of Premier League football has come to an end which saw Leicester pull ahead at the front by three points as Manchester City and Arsenal both faltered against West Ham and Chelsea respectively.
Only one week away from Super Bowl, which means it's time to start planning what to cook. Sure we all show up to watch the game but, if we're honest w...
St. Louis lost the Hawks in basketball to Atlanta, the Cardinals of football to Arizona, and now the Rams. The city loves their baseball Cardinals and their hockey Blues, but the numbers show it just doesn't seem like St. Louis can hold much more.
Is it worth it for underclassmen, i.e. juniors and sophomores, to drop out of school early, with a potential reward of a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract, or do they do so at their own peril later on?
While I sympathize with the residents of St. Louis who are distraught at having lost their NFL team, it is completely appropriate for the Rams to fill the two decade NFL void in the region.

While watching the recent NFL relocation charade involving the Rams, Chargers and Raiders play out, I was reminded once again that the fundamental problem in professional sports is that each sport is a self-regulated monopoly.
Remove the athletes and you remove the profit. Without the athletes, there is no college sports. There are no huge sponsorships from big companies like Nike. The coaches with their million dollar contracts have no one to coach. There is no revenue in ticket sales.
It's a rigged game whose outcome is as certain the spin of the roulette wheel. The owners win; the localities lose; and the fans are played as pawns in a game of financial wheeling-and-dealing.
This is arguably the best weekend of the NFL season - The Divisional Playoffs! Whether your team is still in it, it is hard to deny that the 8 best teams will be on the field this weekend playing for a chance at conference championship, and ultimately a place in the big game in Santa Clara.
It's been almost four decades since the playing days of Mike Webster and over 20 years since I left professional football. Since then, there have been numerous changes to the game, significant improvements in equipment, dramatic advancements in concussion testing and research, and effective new treatments.
Why do we get so worked up about sports?

The NFL Divisional Round Playoffs are about to get underway. Starting on Saturday, we'll get to see four teams from each conference duke it out to ...
