    “Image is everything.” - Andre Agassi, for Canon.   I’ve been alive for 39 years and 49 weeks. I’ve been watching football for 39 years and 48 weeks.  Never have I witnessed a seven day nightmare like last week in the NFL.  In the league’s 95 year history, it has never been worse, from a PR perspective.  The Ray Rice debacle...
It has been five long and miserable months since the NFL season came to a close in New Jersey.  Fans witnessed a very anti-climactic Super Bowl filled with super human defensive backs from Seattle, Mr. Wilson taking the next step, and of course plenty of Manning Faces.  The beauty of the NFL is everyone gets a clean slate once...
How can you sum up the last few days if you are a Patriots fan?  The typical pun on words would be deflated, like the air got taken out of me, or flat.  Forget being a fan of the NFL, if you have been anywhere but sleeping under a bridge like Frank Gallagher in Shameless, you’ve been made well...
"You can close your eyes to reality but not to memory." - Stanislaw Jerzy Lec   What is your favorite Superbowl memory?  Is there any one that stands out? For me, it was Superbowl XVIII, January 22, 1984.  Washington Redskins V. Los Angeles Raiders There were a decent number of years of my youth during which I struggled.  My mother suffered through cancer...
Opening the NFL season with an ass kicking from a team that plays in the dump they call Miami Lakes is never a good thing.  My Patriots started out as if they spent the night drinking and whoring over at Mango’s on Ocean Drive.  It is safe to say TB12 and Belichick weren’t working on their “two-step” salsa moves...
Top 5 Things to Look Forward to when Brady takes the NFL to Court I for one think Brady had some knowledge about what was going on.  Information came to light today that didn't look good for our hero .  However, I've yet to see cold hard facts that state he tampered with footballs before we gave the Colts an...
Regardless of what happens on Sunday, Tom Terrific is going to head back to his mansion in Brookline, crawl on top of Super G for the evening, and wake up and make the world’s best pancakes for his kids.  The Neck Beard is going to still read books on The History of Concrete, continue to climb the ranks of...
    “You can take that to the bank, Jack.” – My Dad, countless times.   There are few guarantees in life. The most annoying people in the world will remind you that two of them are death and taxes. Screw you. I despise the notion of both and prefer life guarantees to be far more positive like: ‘Rock and roll will never...
Some of the NFL backlash has died down recently, because that's how things work. We scream louder now, but then wear ourselves out and watch a video of a bear on a swingset. The outrage machine usually finds something else to devour and completely forgets about last week's meal. Recently, ESPN offered themselves up to the people to take...
The horrible state the NFL is currently in was inevitable. This is what they wanted when they decided to become an extended arm of the law. They told their fans to look to them to right the wrongs that our judicial system allowed. They wanted to be Batman. Some millionaire gets no jail time for vehicular manslaughter? The NFL...
