The $78 Million Apology

Posted in Blogroll on November 16th, 2010 by Ronald Glover

$178 Million invested in TWO players – they need to check this guy’s urine. 

Donovan McNabb has taken more shots than Charlie Sheen at an open bar for the better part of eleven NFL seasons and yet remains one of the game’s most respected gentlemen. While most good guys wear the white hat for McNabb seems more suited for a crown of thorns . He lacks a championship, he’s a company guy, he’s not Black enough, he smiles too much, he chokes, he’s a Momma’s Boy and the latest; his cardiovascular endurance is too poor to run the two-minute drill.

Don’t forget to add ultra-paid to that list now.

TSF Friday Fire: Time to Makeover the NCAA

Posted in Blogroll on November 12th, 2010 by Ronald Glover

I know this is going to be a little rushed on my part and I would like to get deeper into this at another time. 

With the current situation involving Cam Newton, most recently Reggie Bush and several smaller brushfires that lack the publicity but nevertheless create a life-altering situation for a young student athlete – what should be done to change the way the NCAA handles it student athletes and business overall?

Feel free to discuss anything  from possible student athlete stipends to the BCS structure.

NFL Questions And (Maybe Some) Answers For Week 9

Posted in Blogroll on November 8th, 2010 by Ronald Glover

Browns coach Eric Mangini (inset) gives Browns fans something to smile about with back-to-back shocking wins; last week against the Saints and Sunday's stunner over the Patriots.

This was one of the more entertaining weeks in the 2010 season in my opinion. It seems like cities like Cleveland, Oakland and Detroit are not going to take kindly to being the League’s doormats any longer and that makes for great football. Brad Childress reminds me of a kid who doesn’t realize when he’s being spared the rod. Do you think the Eagles are really going to allow Michael Vick to walk away at the end of the season?

Ron Glover’s Week 9 NFL Predictions

Posted in Blogroll on November 7th, 2010 by Ronald Glover

 

With the second half of the 2010-11 campaign set to begin we can only hope that the cream begins to rise – this has been an interesting first half to say the least.

Today on the marquee we have the Dolphins who are undefeated on the road heading up to chilly Baltimore to face the Ravens. The Chargers are eager to begin the second half as they face the Texans in Houston. The surprising Buccaneers look to keep the naysayers at bay as they face Matty Ice and the Falcons. Michael Vick returns as the Eagles hope to keep their undefeated record after a bye week intact as Peyton Manning and the Colts pay a visit. My pick for game of the day is the renewal of one of the NFL’s most bitter rivalries as the Chiefs and Raiders go at it in Oakland.

Byes this week: Broncos, Jaguars, Niners, Rams, Redskins and Titans

How can you DANCE and WIN,

Oh so pale and oh so thin.
