As long as sports are interesting to viewers, leagues turn a blind eye and players fail to hold their peers accountable. Ultimately, the responsibility to ostracize those who systematically abuse their positions as superstars and act above the law falls upon the fans.
Amir Bar-Lev's documentary, Happy Valley, about the Penn State sex scandal that unfolded from mid-2011 to 2012, may surprise people.
We need to help young people make healthy choices and engage in healthy activities. This means investing in programs that encourage safe and age appropriate exploration of health and sexuality, making such programs accessible to all of our city's children and youth.
I found five QBs who fit the profile of Griffin: first-time starting QBs with extremely high efficiency scores who suddenly and precipitously fell off over the span of just two years.
Being a mom of a family is very similar to being the coach of a team. There's the draft, practices, disciplinary actions, incentive programs, public appearances, uniform issues, healing of hurt egos, celebration of successes, and the bye week. So let's break this down.
As a proud North Carolina liberal with a degree from the University of North Carolina, last week wasn't pleasant. I watched our Democratic senator l...
The collective, will, wisdom and "ownership" of the Jets nation has now clearly spoken. It is yelling: "Fire John Idzik." Woody Johnson, hope you are listening.
I'm very worried about being a New York Jets fan. I'm not talking about the usual nonsense of what it is to be a Jets fan but, the usual nonsense of being a complete pessimist the day after the draft.
It's hard to watch your beloved football team play a primetime game against a long-standing rival when you know deep down in your heart before the first snap that they are probably going to lose. It's beyond demoralizing to be trailing 42-0 at halftime.
The incessant airing of Viagra's nauseating British-blonde-on-a-bed commercial during both this October's football games and throughout the baseball playoffs illustrates how tone-deaf the National Football League and Major League Baseball remain when it comes to truly embracing family viewers.
We will have to see how Judge Jones resolves the factual dispute, if in fact the news reports are correct that there was conflicting testimony. After receiving briefs from the parties, she may issue an award which may be followed some time later by a full opinion explaining her reasoning.
Many sports fans fess up to enjoying football food more than the game. Problem is, typical fan fare like chips and dip, burgers and brats, pizza, wings and beer can easily add up to more than a day's worth of calories and several days' worth of saturated fat -- all before kick-off! Here are some of my favorite lighter football snacks so you don't end up feeling like a 300-pound lineman by the end of the season.
I want my son to enjoy watching the game. But only watching it. Because I don't plan to let him play. As the evidence of football's health risks grows, is there any parent left that will?
The "cancer club" that I so passionately tried to turn down my membership to is now my place for safety, strength, and encouragement. So how does Pinktober make me feel? It makes me feel honored and loved.
The Rex Ryan era ended this Sunday after the miserable 43-23 loss to the Buffalo Bills at Met Life Stadium. Whether the once brash, Super-Bowl pledging, "ain't here to kiss Bill Belichick's rings" coach is put out of his misery now or at season's end ultimately make little difference.
I've seen a little too much insistence this week, online and on social media, that Michael Sam's being cut from the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad had nothing to do with his being gay. It's a bit overwrought and defensive. A lot of fans seem to want to believe the NFL is not a homophobic institution.
