Media, Corruption and Lies

Lately, sports fans have been given many reasons to suspect the worst about the games they love. Between athletes who get away with murder, club owners blackmailing cities to build new...

    I spent six years in New Orleans and I have a lot of friends who are Saints fans and frankly, they’ve been absolutely unbearable this season. I avoid Facebook and Twitter like the plague on game day because I can’t stand the “Who Dat” cheers. Saints fans have quintupled in number since this season began and suddenly everyone thinks this is the team of destiny and it’s totally an...

  Packer fans are pretty unanimously ready to see the back of Mason Crosby and for good reason.But all I can think about every time the "Fire Mason Crosby" remarks come around is that last year Crosby was hailed as a savior. Since Ryan Longwell left, the Packers hadn't had a strong leg to rely on and here came Crosby and Packer fans were happy.Now this season he can't seem to hit the broad side o...

This seemed like the likely outcome, but it still hurts to hear - the freak play that happened far from the action late in Sunday afternoon's game has resulted in an injury that will keep Al Harris from playing the rest of the season.

Clearly as frustrated as the fans were by the two recent embarrassing losses to the Vikings and He Who Shall Not Be Named, Cullen Jenkins became the second Packers defenseman to tell the media he's not so happy with what has long been the vaunted change to the 3-4 defense under new coordinator Dom Capers.Jenkins said he and others felt "handcuffed" by the new scheme. These comments come on the hee...

Can't believe the two big receivers for the Packers have been Jordy Nelson and Jermichael Finley.Also can't believe that the O-Line sucks as much this season as they did the last. I mean, it was obviously going to be rough, but at least last season you knew that the line was bad. After the preseason, we had no idea the line would be as porous as it is. I know that a lot of it has to do with mis...

In a lot of ways, I’m super excited the Packers have the Bears the first week of the season because it will be a very early indication of whether or not this team is for real.After each impressive preseason win it got harder and harder not to jump on the “Super Bowl or Bust” bandwagon. It’s been very difficult to find a balance between being overly optimistic and being a complete Nega...
