A bizarre melee broke out between players and fans Saturday in Hamilton, Ontario, as the Hamilton Hurricanes hosted the Montreal-based St. Leonard Cougars in a college-age junior league club game.
In the final moments of the Ontario Football Conference playoff game, up to 20 St. Leonard players were seen on video attacking fans in the stands […]
Sept. 16 I confirmed that the Black Eyed Peas would play this season’s Super Bowl halftime show.
The reaction of the public and media to the BEP booking has been mixed at best but criticism of Super Bowl halftime talent booked by the NFL is forever an inevitability. When you combine a colossal audience and hyper-politically […]
On January 8, then-General Manager Eric Tillman of the Canadian Football League Saskatchewan Roughriders quit his job despite a stellar season for the team on the field. Tillman stepped down because four days earlier he had plead guilty to the sexual assault of a 16-year-old babysitter.
(Tillman pleaded guilty to sexual assault in January)
Yesterday, after […]
Last Friday night at the B.C. Lions-Montreal Alouettes Canadian Football League game in Vancouver, a nude streaker got loose on the field and proceeded to juke through six security guards before finally being dragged down.
So what were the consequence of the gentleman’s actions? A stadium ban but no criminal charges.
The streaker facing a ban from […]
Joe Ovies at wralsportsfan.com in Raleigh discovers a non sequitur association between Duke hoops coach Mike Krzyzewski and a generic iPhone application selling for $2.99.
(Dragons! Panda Bears! Bill Guthridge!)
Press release for what Krzyzewski licensed his name to:
The Coach K App utilizes innovative multi-touch controls that immerse the player into an exciting series of races […]
As stated, this Twitter thing isn’t going to last forever for the wayward athlete-covering media. That’s probably also good thing for someone like football flameout and current Twitter citizen R. Jay Soward.
Soward, who has five kids, is now three years removed from his final season in the CFL. Amazingly, he’s still only 31, but when […]
Everybody knows by now that things get done a little differently in Canada. The culture barrier is subtle, but distinctive; a Norm MacDonald, after all, could never have come from the USA. That’s why when that fan climbed onto the goalpost during a game earlier this week, people were worried, sure, but not really surprised.
I guess there’s a big difference between Americans and Canadians. When our sports fans decide to drunkenly take the field, the most trouble they get into is stealing a football from the hands of Brett Favre and getting decked by security. But leave it to Canadians and their inferiority complex to […]
Weep not for Willie Tuitama. He was a highly touted prospect when he committed to the Arizona Wildcats back in 2004, and he had a super-productive career with the ‘Cats, racking up well over 9,000 yards through the air and 67 TDs.
(Here, he’s “serving” a handoff! Stupid joke? Bad schtick? Okay, we’ll stop.)
But Tuitama wasn’t […]
As the NFL regular season lurches closer & closer to fruition, the CFL would like to remind you that hey, our season is already underway! Why should the clubs south of the border get all the attention?
However, the CFL’s Winnipeg Blue Bombers were probably hoping to grab headlines for other less-savory reasons. First, there was […]
