Packer Backer Sacked; McCarthyism Lives Again!

Okay, we have Mike Wood, a janitor in Green Bay who was fired after his superior apparently heard him say an untoward remark to Packers head coach Mike McCarthy. Without hearing another detail, we already have a pit rising in our stomachs, because well… here we go again.

(”I hold in my hand a list of […]


Idaho AD Has Had Enough Of Boise State’s Plane

This past Monday, Boise State became the fifth college sports program (and the first outside the BCS) to get their team’s logo on an airplane; they joined the Pac-10 members in Oregon and Washington as partners with Horizon Air.

(Waaaaait a minute. A twin prop? You couldn’t even get your logo on a real jet? Boise, […]


Top Link Of The Day: NHL Suspensions Flowchart

Confused about the seemingly capricious nature of suspensions in the NHL? Thinking justice is subject to the whims and vagaries of Gary Bettman’s drug-addled* conscience? The Maple Leafs-centric DOWN GOES BROWN disagrees, and has put together a foolproof flowchart that explains all the NHL’s disciplinary decisions. It’s funny but frighteningly accurate, one of those “hahaha–hey […]


Gophers’ DB Allegedly Kicked The Hell Out Of Girl

What good conflict management is: a peaceful talking through of grievances and differences, toward the goal of resolving the problem through compromise instead of violence.

(Seems like a pretty chill bro.)
What good conflict management isn’t: breaking up an argument between two girls by grabbing one by the throat, slamming her against the wall, and then kicking […]


Middle-Schooler Suspended Over Bengals Haircut

Remember yesterday when we talked about helmet redesigns and all that? The general consensus of the writers of the original article was that the Bengals were the best at using the entire helmet as a canvas rather than just thinking of it as left-half/right-half. A work of art, it is.

(Hmm. Interesting decision.)
Young Dustin Reader certainly […]


We Can’t Decide If This Is Sports And/Or Awesome

Okay, so has America issued a verdict on BMX or “doing what skateboarders do but just on a bicycle instead” and whether that counts as sports yet? I ask because we accept Lance Armstrong as a sportsman, no questions asked, but once we start getting into the whole “tricks off a street implement thing,” everything […]


Oakland CB: Raiders “Can Go 8-0, End Up At 10-6″

The last time we heard from Chris Johnson - no, not the one on the Titans with “gettin’ away from cops speed,” the one on the Raiders - he was too busy drawing bullcrap penalties for praising the Lord after an interception. Seriously, that was a steaming plate of C-R-A-P, and we’re glad the league […]


Tennessee State Rep Booted For General Dickery

You’d think that being a state representative - and all that entails, in terms of a high profile - would prevent someone from basically trying to get arrested at the state’s most popular football team’s stadium in the person’s home state. You’d think that, but you don’t know State Rep. Stacey Campfield (R-Knoxville), and he […]


Pitchman Wants ‘Jeter Wall’ For His Own Mansion

You might recall the story about Tiger Woods‘ garish new digs earlier this week, or this summer’s pictures of Derek Jeter’s 31,000 sq. ft. supermansion going up. Hey, if you’re worth nine digits, you live like it, pal. To nobody’s surprise, both those men are going to have extra security around their homes to keep […]


‘The South Will Rise Again’ Chant Won’t Rise Again

For those of you with no qualms about waving the stars and bars on your front porch or applying it to the bumper of your car, today is a sad day; the Ole Miss Rebels’ famous “From Dixie With Love” fight song has been banned after fans refused to disassociate it with the - ahem […]
