The Super Bowl is coming soon to big screens everywhere. I'll still watch the big game (being in advertising and marketing for three decades, I have to at least see the ads), but my mind is more and more on the minds of the players.
The struggles of Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, in Sunday's loss to the Colts revives the classic question: Why don't professional athletes retire as their skills diminish? NFL players can't seem to quit when it is right, nor can athletes in any other sport.
St. Louis Ram owner Stan Kroenke's plan to build a state-of-the-art football stadium in Inglewood near Hollywood Park is the most promising opportunity for the return of the NFL to Los Angeles in many years.
Van Gaal will be asked many questions about his decisions and selections this past Sunday. For instance, why was Radamel Falcao not used if he was available? Why did Wayne Rooney not play above Di María for parts of the match, if not all of it?
Though a Pats fan dare not criticize beloved Bill, we hate to say that an end zone catch could have proven fatal for New England's prospects for the Super Bowl. Monday Morning quarterbacking is so much easier!
For millions of Americans, the mere mention of football season triggers sweaty palms and stomach churning. Sports betting is the most taboo yet pervasive activity among sports fans and grows in popularity exponentially.
Manchester United began 2015 with a misfire on New Year's Day, only managing one point from a 1-1 draw against Stoke.
On Monday, Baribeau will become the first in-game host of a College Football Playoff National Championship Game. For Baribeau, though, this isn't her first rodeo in covering a college football national championship.
That's it, simple. The only one you're trying to make better is you, the only one you're trying to beat is you. You can't move forward by looking sideways. Take a look at the things that have been beating you up in the "locker room" and see how you can take them out.
While this breakup is going to be a difficult journey, and while I still care for and love my ex-boyfriend, the best part is that, now, I have all the time in the world to myself. I'm free of wanting. And I'm free of waiting.
It turns out that the taxpayer subsidy to Jim Harbaugh is equal to an awful lot of food stamps, which are a useful reference point here, since Republicans have tried to vilify the program. If we assume that Harbuagh's salary is made up by $7 million in tax-deductible contributions by rich people, then taxpayers will effectively be paying $2.8 million to subsidize his coaching job. This is equivalent to 20,000 months of food stamps. People who get upset over someone getting food stamps from the government should be very upset about a football coach getting a taxpayer subsidy equal to 20,000 months of food stamps. To be clear, I have nothing against Harbaugh or the University of Michigan, but it is certainly reasonable to ask about the size of the salaries at nonprofits that are being subsidized with our tax dollars.
The day will come where eight college teams will make the playoffs. I'm patient. I've waited my whole life for a college football playoff since I started watching the sport 45 years ago. I always joked there would be peace in the Middle East before a college playoff. I was wrong.
I would suggest that the NFL demand full copies of the investigation and the judge's rulings and demands that Winston answer questions posed by NFL lawyers before it authorizes the presence of Jameis Winston in the 2015 draft.
Notwithstanding a much more accurate national title setup, the College Football Playoff still must go one step further. An 8-team tournament is still a far better option and might have possibly gifted us a different title game, but we'll never know.
Black Monday in the NFL saw four more franchises fire their head coaches along with two general managers. Clearly there are situations where a head coach may have lost the ability to motivate his team or lost control of how to fix a losing situation and a change is needed. History shows however that stability at the coaching level is a key to success.
The question Iggles fans should be asking shouldn't be who won the power struggle? It should be why does a power struggle exist at all?
