Bill Walsh: Hall of Fame Legend Dies

By Steven Blake, published on Jul 30, 2007

Three-time Superbowl Champion Coach has passed away from a fight with Leukemia early this morning. He was the creator of the West Coast Offense now being used in the NFL. Bill Walsh started off as a high school coach and moved onto college but did not become a head coach in the NFL till he was 47. He had ten years with San Francisco where he made a name for himself with three superbowl wins and a record of 102-63-1. He also went on to win coach of the year in 1981 and 1984. He left behind a mark on the NFL with his ideas and strategies passed on to head coaches (who at the time were assistant... (more)

A Dark Time In American Sports History

By robertanchor, published on Jul 27, 2007

...they attended. An undisclosed whiteness described Vick as one of the “Big Dogs” in the business, due to the enormous amounts of money Vick would place on most of his bets. Guilty or not, I cant see how anyone could see this unfortunate circumstance as something that is good for the NFL or its fans. Far from the fields that once belonged to the "golden years" of baseball, now stands the new era of the game. The ongoing steroid investigation plays a major part into how people will perceive what’s left of baseball's integrity. Steroids, gambling, and illegitimate... (more)

A Disturbing Week In Professional Sports

By Mark Barkawitz, published on Jul 25, 2007

...about what Bonds did and didn’t know concerning those supplements. Loyalty has its price. I wonder what Anderson’s is? Football commissioner Roger Goodell, who has already shown himself to be a no-nonsense enforcer of league rules concerning personal behavior by suspending NFL players for their off-field criminal infractions, has advised Atlanta Falcons star quarterback Michael Vick to stay home from training camp while his legal problems are resolved in the courts. Vick’s offense: running a high-stakes, dog-fighting operation out of one of his houses and... (more)

The All-Star Game, a Mid-Summer Tear Jerker

By dsnyder, published on Jul 4, 2007

...point in the sports editorial calendar, and it is enough to choke a sports fan to death. The must and dust from these rants fills the lungs of anyone just looking for the slightest bit of sports entertainment, and the only thing that can resuscitate them is the beginning of training camp for the NFL. The argument presented to end MLB’s All-Star game usually has at least one of the three following rationales: 1.No one is watching anymore 2.The home field advantage rule is unfair 3.The voting process is flawed As far as the first one, that is a no win battle with sports writers... (more)

No Beef for Koby this Year

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jun 28, 2007

...Championship at the Arizona Mills Mall in suburban Tempe, Ariz., -- one of the qualifying events for Coney Island. Chestnut almost defeated Kobayashi last year, gobbling down 52 hot dogs and buns at the contest, which is sponsored by Nathan's Famous Inc. Chestnut must feel the same way that NFL QB Steve Young felt when he learned that Joe Montana, the 49ers first-stringer, was injured, allowing Young to seize his moment in the sun. Chestnut has been eating in the shadow of Kobayashi for a long time, and he has to be ecstatic over the fact that now he will finally get a chance to assume ... (more)

LA's NFL Team: The Houston Texans

By J. Lyon Miller, published on Jun 26, 2007

NFL training camps open next month, and LA football fans are gearing up like every other summer for the past 12 years: By ignoring the Chargers (as they’re an out-of-town team), treating the Rams as a bad, Tommy Chong-style brown acid flashback, complete with images of Chris Everett sacking himself in Anaheim, Wendell Tyler fumbling, and the Youngbloods getting worked by the Steelers, and by either a) Worshipping the Raiders more than Jesus, Michael Moore and Hillary combined, or b) Rolling our eyes at Raider Fan for just not getting it- they’re rooting for a team owned by Al Davis. ‘Nuff... (more)

A Monster Problem Called Monster Park

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jun 22, 2007

After a recent series of meetings between the NFL and San Francisco 49er officials, it looks like wherever the Niners finally decide to move, it’s going to be at least a decade before a new stadium is a reality. Whether it’s in Santa Clara or at Hunters Point, the team’s fans are going to have to be satisfied with clunky, unappealing Monster Park for a long, long time. The whole affair is a travesty and a disgrace. Monster Park is old and should be put out of its misery. The bathrooms stink with flooding toilets, the seats are uncomfortable and the entire place looks like a mall from the... (more)

Was Prince Harry fit for war?

By Lakwyia, published on May 30, 2007

... i do not think he is. C'mon, he's royalty for god's sake and that is all he knows. Military is not for everyone and thank god, whether Prince Harry knows it or not, his life was saved. If he would have stayed in the military long-term, he would have been dead. The same feelings also to the former NFL star Pat Tillman. He wasn't "military material" either. I am glad that he wanted to serve his country but he was doing that well enough by just playing football. Alot of people thought that the strength he used doing that would help him serve well for his country but these two things you cannot... (more)

Georgia Dome To Host 'Bama v. Duke in 2010?

By GreatMinds, published on May 22, 2007

The NFL plays a preseason game abroad once a year. In the 2007 season, the Miami Dolphins and New York Giants will square off in London's Wembley Stadium, the first NFL regular season game abroad; it sold 40,000 tickets in the first 90 minutes after ticket sales began last week. That same day, Duke University announced that it is looking at playing the University of Alabama in the Georgia Dome in 2010, the second game of a home-and-home series that began in 2006 when the Blue Devils traveled to Tuscaloosa in one of the Crimson Tide's few wins last season. Duke and Alabama share a common heritage:... (more)

Message to Michael Vick: Dog Fighting is Dog----!

By Ed Attanasio, published on May 6, 2007

Does anyone want to buy an authentic Michael Vick Atlanta Falcons NFL jersey? I paid about $200 for it, but you can have it cheap. Please respond soon because if I can't sell it quickly, I'll  burn it. When I found out the other day that Vick is involved in the so-called "sport" of dog fighting, I suddenly lost all interest in the man and his spotty football career. Already a problem child, Michael Vick, it appears, is a member of a sick segment of our society that thinks it’s cool to watch innocent, helpless animals attempt to kill each other. I have never seen the attraction to something... (more)
