NFL Fumbles

Joe Peyronnin | September 20, 2014 | Sports
The NFL is a huge business, but with its success comes great responsibility. Yet the owners and commissioner of the NFL have been more committed to protecting their business than in getting out ahead on several key social issues that have faced the league. Where is the leadership?

Living With HIV: New Horizons

Greg Louganis | September 20, 2014 | Gay Voices
A friend from the 50-something "group" and I discussed the challenges facing the population of long-term HIV/AIDS survivors. I find that this generation of people living with HIV is a big issue, what with housing and living expenses on top of insurance and medical maintenance.

The NFL Is a National Parasite

Diane M. Francis | September 19, 2014 | Women
Enjoying sporting events is fun, but, like Wall Street, the subsidies and salaries have gone too far. These privileges are at the expense of taxpayers and society as a whole as the Rice fiasco illustrates.

College Football's Playoff System -- An Analytical Projection

Nik Bonaddio | September 19, 2014 | Sports
We can't tell much only two weeks in, but what we can say with some confidence is there are certain teams that so far statistically meet the profile of a champion, at least in analytic comparison to past champions.

It's About More Than Football

Jim Wallis | September 19, 2014 | Religion
This sends a very clear message to children in this country, boys in particular, who aspire to be athletes, or those who simply see these athletes as role models. The time has come to flip that message and make it one of zero tolerance.

Adrian Peterson, Child Abuse, and Why It Doesn't Matter If That's How You Were Raised

Aaron Gouveia | September 19, 2014 | Parents
It is never acceptable to beat a little kid bloody with a weapon, because that is always child abuse. I can't believe it's 2014 and I have to spell that out for people.

My Summer Playing New York City Streetball

Tyson Hartnett | September 19, 2014 | New York
In different areas of the world, there may be better players, better games, and better pure basketball. But New York City is still the Mecca. When you tell someone, "I played streetball in New York City," they'll immediately know it toughened you up.

Emily Cornelius | September 19, 2014 | Sports
Training camp is among us and with that comes all kinds of excitement, speculation and a whole whack of skeptics. The Leafs welcomed 64 players to this year's camp.

Player Focus: Modest Modric Madrid's Superstar in the Shadows

Alistair Tweedale | September 19, 2014 | UK Sport
It is fair to say with Xavi's decline Modric is now ahead of him in the pecking order, and he, Kroos, Cesc Fàbregas and Andrea Pirlo are now arguably the best technical central midfielders on the planet at present, and some might even say that Modric is, or could soon be, leading the pack.

David Beckham, Live In New York (Kinda)

Michael J. Agovino | September 19, 2014 | Sports
Bruce Arena had said at one point that Beckham trained hard every day. He had never been a favorite of mine -- I thought he was another good-looking, overrated British brat -- but the older he got, the more he earned my respect.

The Colorado Rockies' Odd Statistical Season

Dan Karpuc | September 18, 2014 | Sports
It's not often that a team 30 games under .500 will be among the best offensive clubs in baseball, but the 2014 Colorado Rockies have been.

The NFL Must Stop Promoting Sexism -- and Start Promoting More Women

Teresa C. Younger | September 18, 2014 | Women
The goal of the NFL policy should be to stop violence against women -- not to punish perpetrators to turn down the heat when a high-profile case causes a public relations nightmare.

The NFL Gets Datafied -- 5 Impacts You Haven't Thought Of

David Giannetto | September 18, 2014 | Sports
Some of the effects of this on the NFL will be obvious: players can improve their performance, coaches will change game plans, owners will sell new products and services, and fanatical fans will be more engaged. But these just scratch the surface.

What You Haven't Heard in Coverage of the Adrian Peterson Child Abuse Allegations

Christopher A. Brown | September 18, 2014 | Sports
Taking a switch to a 4-year-old in today's world, or in the world of the recent or distant past, is simply a form of abusive, fear-based punishment meant to inflict pain. It in no way teaches or guides.

Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, Roger Goodell and Quasimodo: Sanctuary, Sanctuary

Richard Brodsky | September 18, 2014 | Sports
Professional sports have been given a zone of immunity from the normal social, political and economic constraints that apply to the rest of us. Players and owners live in a sanctuary of a kind that the Hunchback of Notre Dame would understand. Enter these premises and the law doesn't apply. No more.

I'm an FSU Graduate and I Approve Winston's Suspension

John A. Tures | September 18, 2014 | Sports
Word came to Florida State University fans that Jameis Winston did something else to embarrass the school. So therefore, I applaud FSU for suspending Winston for half of one of the most critical games of the season, even if it costs us the game against Clemson.
