American Football season kicks off tonight with the Chiefs vs. the Patriots. To get you ready for the season, we’ve assembled a great panel of sports enthusiasts; not statisticians and historians but rather just good old fashioned football fans- all of them artists because that’s who we know- to talk about everything from why the […]

I hate to sound like a stereotypical foreigner, but when you are culturally bred to worship only baseball and fútbol, it’s difficult to see what Americans love so much about their own definition of “football,” their famously (or infamously) intoxicating game of equal parts grace and violence. Watching Company One’s production of Colossal, by Andrew […]

With baseball wrapped up and hockey just getting interesting, some might have been distracted from their religious football Sunday, Monday.. and Thursday rituals. So how is America’s favourite pastime faring? Well we’re more than halfway through the football season and it’s just starting to snow. Week 9 marked a pivotal week for NFL teams as […]

It unites and destroys. It can create friendships through the unlikeliest strangers or add scars to fierce loyalties. It has given thousands hope while bringing others to their knees. It embodies tradition, respect and hardworking values. It’s a religion, a way of life, and the air that the die-hard believers breathe. It portrays the spirit […]

The Houston Texans, after putting on one of the worst regular season performances in NFL history, have no doubt had an eventful 2014 offseason so far. After ending last season on a dreadful 14-game losing streak, the Texans went into the 2014 NFL Draft with the first overall selection (thanks to that aforementioned losing streak). […]

You’ve got to love the mystique behind the infamous sophomore slump. The beauty of it is that it can happen to anyone. Surely all of us can name, without even giving it much thought, an NFL player who had a monster rookie campaign only to go through a frustrating and underwhelming second season in the […]

You’ll never make it. You know your dreams are unrealistic, right? It’s just a fantasy and you need to realize that most people will never be able to do what you want to do in life. You’re too small. You’re not athletic or talented enough to make it in the NFL. You don’t have the […]

Did Richard Sherman really win the fans’ support to be on the cover of ‘Madden NFL 15’ because they felt he deserved to win, or because they hoped he would be affected by the Madden Curse? Whether you believe in curses or not, you have to really understand how players in the past have performed […]

The NFL has developed into a quarterback-driven league; to win, a team must have a special quarterback. Every year there are some shoe-ins who have the starting job for their team; however, for some teams, every new year brings with it a quarterback competition at training camp. The biggest quarterback battle this year  is Mark […]

It has certainly been a long time coming but finally the New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed upon terms of a deal that will send Darrelle Revis to Tampa. In return the Buccaneers will send their 13th pick in this weeks’ NFL draft, along with a conditional 3rd rounder in next years’ […]

The “Offensive Tackle” position seems to be the dominant theme in this year’s NFL entry draft. With the Chiefs holding the first overall pick, most seem to think that they will take Luke Joeckel, tackle out of Texas A&M with that pick. However, the rising stock of Eric Fisher and Lane Johnson just might be […]

The read-option offense took the National Football league (NFL) over by storm this past season. A shift in thinking from the NFL brain trust to maximize the skills and talents of the young superstar Quarterbacks that are in their first and second years such as Cam Newton, Robert Griffin, Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick. The […]

February was Black History Month, it’s been over a year since Martin Luther King Jr.’s memorial opened in DC, and we just had the second inauguration for an African American President. We are told as a public that change has occurred, and while that may be true in some cases, it isn’t in others. We’ve […]

There’s a lot of big name running backs hitting the open market this year and running happens to be a big need for a number of teams. All in all, this could be an exciting free agency period. Steven Jackson- longtime Rams running back- headlines the crop of RB’s set to hit the market. Not […]

There has been an overwhelming spotlight on where quarterback Alex Smith will end up come the 2013 NFL season. Many teams, such as the Chiefs, Cardinals, Jets, Browns, and Jags, all have shown interest in the former first overall pick from the 2006 NFL draft, but which team will win the Alex Smith sweepstakes? Realistically, […]

Manti Te’o is the latest athlete to be outed as a creative deviant, clutching onto the childhood convention of imaginary friends long past its accepted expiration date, but he is by no means the first to have such a fantastic crutch. It is a long tradition for the most stressed, expended minds to swing towards […]

It was a interesting year for sports and while not all moments were those we’d prefer to remember, few can doubt it was a good year to be a sports fan. Well, expect for NHL fans at the moment. That being said, I’m going to break down the year into three categories and review what […]

The last time Roger Goddell’s suspensions against the players of the New Orleans Saints involved in the bounty scandal were reversed, he ignored what was told to him. He re-suspended the same players and refused to compromise on what he felt was a gross violation of the game. I’m not saying that Goddell has no […]

My Facebook Newsfeed has been blowing up with this link over the past few hours. Everyone from my high school English teacher to twentysomething politicos to sheltered theatre geeks are jumping on the Chris Kluwe bandwagon; and for good reason. Okay, backstory: Brendon Ayanbadejo (linebacker, Baltimore Ravens) comes out in favour of legalizing gay marriage. […]

A few weeks ago, Penn State hit rock bottom concerning the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal. Working off the Feech report, the NCAA brought down the hammer for the school’s part in the scandal. The cover up of such an atrocious act brought them to the brink of the death penalty, but still resulted in […]

There is a large court battle brewing between the NFL and its players. Usually when you hear something like this, one would assume it’s another possible labour stoppage over money and revenue. Not this time people, this one is a massive civil suit being filed against the league by players who are suffering from brain […]

Like many lifelong football fans, I was saddened to hear about that passing of Junior Seau. TMZ first reported and confirmed the passing of the iconic linebacker, victim of what appears to be a self inflicted gun shot to the chest. Everyone associated with football and fans of all teams were saddened by the news, […]

Every where I went, someone was making a big hoopla about the NFL’s new licensing contract with Nike that was going to kick in this year. A lot of my friends were eager to see the new football jerseys which were supposed to look similar to the trim, hard to grab uniforms that Nike had […]
