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...
  “If I were two faced, would I be wearing this one?” – Abraham Lincoln   If I were to say the name, “Two-Face,” most would think of the Batman villain.  I’m here to tell you the NFL has its own version of Two Face and that man’s biological name is Philip Michael Rivers.  (There’s a Miami Vice joke in there somewhere.) The...
  “Good seasons start with good wins.” – Sparky Anderson   Nine days ago, the general consensus of opinion amongst the 2016 Phiadelphia Eagles fanbase was, “eh.”  Sure, the coaching staff was, for the most part, new.  Even better, the dreck personnel that the previous regime had brought in were all but expunged but there was just something missing.  The future had...

By now, most people know that the NFL's annual Breast Cancer Awareness campaign is a money scam they run every October. What makes them so amazing is that they must know that we know, yet they keep doubling down in their evilness. Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams recently found out how amazingly cold the NFL can be when it comes to...
  “Thanksgiving, man.  Not a good day to be my pants.” – Kevin James   I’m not happy about the Eagles playing on Thanksgiving.  What is normally a battery recharge holiday with no stress, a little wine, a lot of food, a couple naps and a long weekend of decorating, hanging with the kids and friends is, this year, something else entirely. ...
“It’s never too late, in fiction or in life, to revise.” – Nancy Thayer   As a child, you call it a ‘do over.’  In the film industry, it is known as a ‘remake.’  On the golf course, it’s a ‘mulligan.’  Here at Voodoobrown, I call it a ‘revisal.’  Now that the entire league has played half of their schedule, it...

I was flipping through the channels the other day and noticed re-runs of some of my favorite old school TV shows.  Not only did it make me realize how old I was, it made me realize how REALLY old I was, because they were using AOL Instant Messenger on it.  I can recall throwing up “away messages” on AIM...
A lot of people wrote them off.  Many of us have egg on our face and have eaten a healthy dose of crow over the last month.  We questioned the greatest quarterback of our generation and possibly all time, the greatest coach in the history of the game, and an organization that has been the model franchise, on the...
The NFL gives each team a week off during the season, so I took mine last week.  I’ve been on a whirlwind travel tour over the last six weeks with one more stop on tap.  Rather than give a half assed column on minimal sleep from a few time zones away, I figured bring the heat a couple weeks...
