The NFL's history of protecting thugs and hiding brain injuries is inexcusable. But the real outrage is that taxpayers are funding the construction of coliseums so that bruisers can smash each other in the mouth and billionaires can get richer.
How could she, as his zealously anti-gay religious mentor and self-avowed "demon buster," possibly tolerate his "evolving" on something that is so fundamental to her belief system? But if it's truly the case that he's evolved, Tyree can let us all know that he completely disavows her radical views on homosexuality.
Last week the New York Giants announced the hiring of former Super Bowl hero and anti-same-sex-marriage advocate David Tyree to a front office job, where he is directly responsible for the development of player's careers.
How exactly is a homophobe supposed to carry out the job of director of player development? How is a gay player on the Giants supposed to react to this if he is thinking about coming out or is experiencing anti-gay harassment on the team?
The action in the end zone, or lack of it, feels a little less disappointing when the guys on the field show that they respect and care about one another. (There might be lesson for Congress in that.)
You Are Now Entering a Hug Free Zone There are many things that I can think of where President Richard Nixon and I strongly disagree: his broadening ...
Every fall Sunday, starting when I was five years old, my father turned the dial of our black-and-white TV to the CBS broadcast of the New York Giants game. The oldest of three girls, I was clearly the son that wasn't.
Thanksgiving this year was truly something to be thankful for. Over the past two years, I've come a long way -- I've grown as a Christian, as a man, and more so as a human being with an understanding of life.
There's no better feeling than winning with a group of men that you consider to be your brothers, who will take time out of their busy schedules so that we can bond and keep gelling to make this run. One day, one week, one game at a time...
We know that the Giants can win a Super Bowl; they won one less than two years ago. And if the team can properly execute their draft, they could easily be contending for their third Super Bowl in less than a decade next season.
It's great to win as a team. More than anything it helped the morale of the team. It also reassured the young guys that the work they've been putting in is not in vain. The weekly routine can feel mundane at times, but at the end of the day, this is our job.
New York has neither a proven, long-term running back nor the shutdown defense it thought it had two years ago. What happened to defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who has gone from truly dominant to truly ordinary? What happened to the G-Men's lethal pass rush that won the Super Bowl just 20 months ago?
The rivalry makes no sense. A dramatic win for one franchise tends to signal a coming of awesomeness for the other.
It was not through a charity act on the part of the Giants that gave me the opportunity to play football again -- I regained my spot on the team through months of hard work.
I want to bring to you the story of an athlete, one who has endured a great amount of adversity both during and after football season. I am Terrell Thomas, and I hope that this blog gives you great insight into my life and career.
For the past few years, I have always wanted to attend a Patriots game at Gillette Stadium. Being from New England, I had attended the Bruins, Celtics, and Red Sox games, but had yet to cross the Patriots off my bucket list.
