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.
Andrew Luck continues to lead all players in fantasy points to-date and in our projections for the end of the season. This week, he gets a Pittsburgh defense that may currently have the weakest starting cornerbacks in the NFL.
You've never been afraid to do what you think is right or hold yourself to a higher standard -- even if that's different from what everyone else is doing. And that's why you're the perfect guy to recalibrate the NFL's dial.
Yes, blame the NFL. Yes, blame us all. But I think the moment calls for us to consider some more fundamental cultural framing of sports. What I particularly want to focus on is how I think many white people in the US regard African American men in sport.
Recent sports news has been filled with terrible stories about racism, gender violence, child abuse, and concussion-related brain damage for one in three former NFL players.
From Shirley Temple to Drew Barrymore, young girls have loved to dress up and entertain. I'm going out on a limb here when I say stage moms are like cosmetic surgery, you only really notice the bad ones...
All of my football friends were out of town this weekend, and I can't stand to watch a game alone, so I decided to invite my tailors -- Wang, Patel and Rabinowitz -- over to watch some NFL action on Sunday.
An ominous cloud hung over Chicago's fall chill all week. There was an uneasiness in the pit of Bears fans' stomachs they couldn't shake. Was the offensive explosion last week against the Atlanta Falcons an outlier? After Sunday's horrible 27-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins, the answer is a resounding yes.
