College Football Coaches Need To Be Held Accountable
People always wonder when is it a good time to leave a college football and the answer there really is not a good time. Brian Kelly and Lincoln Riley decided it was time to leave each school for other programs without much notice at all. Do college football coaches owe anyone especially their players on what led them to leave. Should college football players be allowed to leave immediately from the program? Let's dig deeper into both questions on one of the hottest topics in college football these days.
The Story So Far (Week 13)
We made it. We made it to the magical month of December. Any NFL fan knows that December is when, as Jim Ross often says, "business starts to pick up." December is not only the last month of the calendar year, it is also the final full month of the NFL season, and that's when the playoff races get very interesting. Before this season, the regular season either ended on the final Sunday of the calendar year, or the first Sunday of the New Year, but now it's a 17-game season played in 18 weeks, meaning that the season is now guaranteed to enter the New Year.
Coaching Football & Systemic Racism
Sports have been said to be one of the world’s most level playing fields. Talent, drive, hard work, and performance supersede almost all else most of the time; at least where players are concerned. Yes, athletes are, generally speaking, judged mostly on their ability to execute and win games. But does this performance based evaluation extend into the realm of coaching? Where football is concerned, my answer is no.

NFL Week 12 Recap: Winter Is Coming
Among the many things I love about Thanksgiving is this: it serves as the precursor to the home stretch of the NFL season. With Week 12 in the books, we are now two-thirds through the season. Yet already, a nuclear winter is starting to hit some teams who fancy themselves as playoff or even championship contenders. Let's start with the most glaring downward trend, the Los Angeles Rams.
108th Grey Cup Playoffs: Division Semifinals Recap
After 16 wild weeks, the 108th Grey Cup Playoffs finally kicked off on Sunday. Six teams playing for a chance to capture the Grey Cup, with four of the six beginning the journey in the Division Semifinals. Five games in three weeks, and it began with the East Semifinal between the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Montréal Alouettes in Hamilton, Ontario.
Taunting is the "newest" worst penalty in the NFL
The 2021-22 NFL season is about to be one of the leagues weirdest seasons ever; from being a now 17-game season to having 2 bottom teams from both the AFC and the NFC sneaking into the playoffs. the worst thing about this season so far is the "taunting" penalty as NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will make up new rules, causing the outcome of games being unfair. this isn't just him however, there were rumors of referees manipulating the outcomes in games for TV ratings as this was happening when Roger Goodell became commissioner back in 2006. the NFL is at a pivotal point where their product is going downhill and viewers are lurking in the other direction by turning the channel.
NFL Week 11 Recap: Giving Thanks
It's that time of the year again: Thanksgiving. I love Thanksgiving; always have. Good food, time with family, and some intriguing football. Week 11 was the final week prior to the Thanksgiving holiday, and in this recap of the week that was, I would like to list all of the things I'm thankful for as a football fan.
CFL Week 16 Recap: Let the Games Begin
Well, we did it. We made it through a slightly brief but immensely chaotic Canadian Football League season. 14 games in 16 weeks. This CFL fan really enjoyed this wild and crazy ride, and as fun as the regular season was, the playoffs will be absolutely epic. Now, with all of the spots locked in after Week 15, there wasn't much left to settle regarding the playoffs. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the Toronto Argonauts are locked in at first place in their respective divisions. The last playoff spot was taken by the Calgary Stampeders with their win over the BC Lions. All that was left was to determine home field in the Eastern Semifinal between the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Montréal Alouettes.
NFL Week 10 Recap: Win, Lose, or Draw
Week 10, as well as the 2nd half of the NFL season, started with the Baltimore Ravens losing badly to the lowly Miami Dolphins, meaning that the Pittsburgh Steelers had a golden opportunity to move into a tie for first place in the AFC North. They were at home against the winless Detroit Lions, who hadn't won a game since December 6, 2020, but on Saturday, the news broke: Ben Roethlisberger testing positive for COVID. Even so, with Mason Rudolph starting for the Steelers, it still seemed like they would beat the Lions.
CFL Week 15 Recap: Beasts of the East
In the 15th and penultimate week of the CFL season, not only could the Grey Cup Playoff picture become complete, but literally everything could be locked in.
