Super Bowl L: Worst in History

Rhett Grametbauer | February 8, 2016 | Sports
Super Bowl L was a walk-off performance by everyone involved, except for the defense for each team. They should've stuck around and possibly tried to play offense as well. They couldn't do much worse.

Two Words if Manning Decides to Retire: Good Riddance

David Macaray | February 8, 2016 | Sports
So best of luck in retirement to Peyton. No one deserves being in the Hall of Fame more than Peyton Manning does. He was a class act on the field. As for the classiness of "Manning Rules," we'll leave that to others to decide.

Mark Goulston, M.D. | February 8, 2016 | Sports
Let's realize that Blake Griffin's punching of Clippers assistant equipment staff manager, Matias Testi, was egregious but not evil. Griffin is not an evil person, just someone with poor impulse and anger control.

Because there is almost no research available to describe the social, economic, health and other consequences associated with fantasy sports, whether seasonal or accelerated, the first step is to construct research to investigate the pattern, practices and psychology associated with fantasy sports.

Believe it or not, the biggest face-off during Super Bowl 50 isn't between Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos and Cam Newton's Carolina Panthers, but amongst the businesses squaring away in the Bay Area during Super Bowl week's festivities. With over 114 million people tuning in to watch the Super...

A litmus test for Iran on the world stage: sports and air transport

James Dorsey | February 8, 2016 | Sports
Sports and air transport are likely to serve as indicators of whether Iran has the flexibility to become a major node in an increasingly globalized world. At the core of Iranian efforts to become a global sports and airline hub will be its willingness to relax strict gender segregation, dress codes and its ban on alcohol.

John A. Tures | February 7, 2016 | Sports
Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, which is hosting the 50th Super Bowl (Super Bowl L), is regarded as one of the worst stadiums in the NFL, if not the worst. So why is it hosting the best game? It's all about rewarding teams with new stadiums, even if they aren't ready to host a Super Bowl.
