Florida State QB Jameis Winston will not be charged with sexual assault. The minute the Florida State Attorney Willie Meggs called a press conference to discuss the case publicly, I knew that it wasn’t to announce the pending arrest of Winston but I didn’t know that this was Meggs’ time to giggle and joke around.
We’re talking about a woman who has accused someone of one of the most personal of crimes that one person can commit upon another.
What I witnessed from this classless officer of the court was an obvious agenda to gain support from the Seminole nation who will now cheer Winston on to a Heisman Trophy victory and quite possibly a national championship.… Read the rest
Aaron Rodgers told a reporter in L.A. that he would play this coming weekend. Rumors then began circulating that the Packers could possibly sit Rodgers for the rest of the season.
Fans who paid to witness the remaining Packers games want to see Rodgers on the field. One fan went so far as to tell me that he paid for the tickets and overpaid for the 2-night stay at a local hotel all in an effort to see Aaron Rodgers under center this weekend.
On one hand, if Aaron Rodgers is healthy enough to play then it would be unfair for him to sit when his teammates are risking their health by playing out what has proven to be a dismal season. … Read the rest
On a day when it was supposed to be about giving to those in need, the Brewers left fielder, Ryan Braun, called an impromptu press conference.
As Braun stood outside of Miller Park collecting food for the hungry he fielded questions from the media who hurriedly gathered.
What did we learn from Braun?
Well, he had dinner with Dino Lorenzi Jr., the man whose character Braun so easily assassinated only a year and 9 months ago. We also learned, via Braun that he and Lorenzi have made amends.
Oh yeah, one more thing, Braun’s getting married…..soon. The exact date needs to be a mystery for whatever reason.… Read the rest
The Green Bay Packers knew it would happen one day. Their franchise quarterback would go down with an injury and be “out” for a lengthy recovery. Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone and needed at least 5 weeks….or more….of recovery time.
What the Packers and their faithful had hoped for was at least a win or two to sustain their quest for the post-season.
What we witnessed on Thanksgiving was the culmination of an embarrassment of talent that has been gathered through the draft by Ted Thompson and his staff. A group of talent, so poor in their execution, that they are on pace to get one, if not more, of their coaches fired.… Read the rest
When the Bucks went into the off season and jettisoned Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis for an all new back court, I looked at John Hammond’s moves and thought; this might be fun to watch. In comes Larry Drew and I considered this team serious about winning. 11 new players and a seemingly good group of cornerstones should have equaled excitement and enthusiasm.
Boy was I wrong.
Granted, this Bucks team has taken on more than their fair share of injuries but I never expected the Bucks to be this bad. The Bucks have now lost 9 in a row with no signs of a win anywhere in sight.… Read the rest
