Protest, It’s Your Right But Do You Really Know Why?

Posted in Bill's Blog
I don’t mind if you want to protest….protest if it makes you feel better and if you feel you’re making the correct impact.
My question then becomes, when do you end your protest? What has to happen for you to stand again and salute a country that allows you those freedoms? Please, be specific, I think a lot of people would like to know. Those who want to see change, what change? How much change? Just in your neighborhood or everywhere? If everywhere, be specific as to your desires? You see, some who want to protest, do it to protest without knowing the specifics of what they’re doing.… Read the rest

Adams Early Star Dimmed By Foot Injury

Posted in Bill's Blog
The Packers 3rd round draft choice, Montravius Adams, was showing promise.  He was big, strong and used terrific leverage to move mountains up front via offensive lineman.  Some of the praise heaped upon him by his teammates was comparable with the likes of Warren Sapp.  Strong praise for a young man who hasn’t played a down yet in the NFL.  All that promise has now come to a disappointing halt. Adams has a stress fracture in his foot that may or may not require surgery and maybe even screws to be inserted to solidify the break.  There isn’t any timetable for Adams return but estimates are 4 to 8 weeks depending on the severity of the fracture.… Read the rest

Cheeseheads Need To Equal TDs

Posted in Bill's Blog
He has milked cows, traveled the state to become acquainted with fans, he’s slept in front of his locker the night before training camp and now he’s donning a cheesehead.  Packers TE, Martellus Bennett, has certainly said and done all the right things to garner the respect and excited anticipation of Packers fans everywhere. Bennett was one of the bigger off-season move, not just for the Packers but in all the NFL. A little advice for the charismatic pass catcher, if you really want to endear yourself to those who also wear the cheeseheads with pride, catch touchdowns and block for your quarterback like you’re protecting the holy grail.… Read the rest

Damnit!

Posted in Bill's Blog
Last night’s Brewers / Nationals game was heartbreaking.  It was a game which you could second guess just about everything Craig Counsel did and you’d be right.  What makes me madder, and I know I shouldn’t be, it’s the fact that the day after you lose a tough one, Ryan Braun has his scheduled day off. Woulnd’t you love to see, or hear, Braun say to Counsel, “No, I’m not taking a day off, we need to win this one damnit and we’re in a pennant race”. I just want leadership. I don’t want “Blah blah blah” words, damnit do it. … Read the rest

The Olympics Could Shortchange MLB Fans

Posted in Bill's Blog
When it comes to playing baseball for your country or your team, the choice may not be the easiest but there’s a simple logic to it.  You see the 2020 Olympics are right around the corner and Major League Baseball, in conjunction with the Players Association, has stated over and over again that they can’t see the league’s best talents, leaving for 2 weeks to head to Tokyo. Some players would relish the opportunity to win gold but there is only one thing to consider here; the money. The money you demand in your contract.  The money your team is paying you. … Read the rest

And The Horst Era Begins

Posted in Bill's Blog
“I’m not excited”, “it’s a safe pick”, “there isn’t a wow factor here”, “where’s John Hammond when we need him” and finally “LOVE IT”….these are all the things that were said via twitter immediately after the Bucks took D.J. Wilson (PF from Michigan) with the 17th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. Short of the John Hammond comment, those were my thoughts exactly. This isn’t a flashy pick but what do you expect, in reality, when you’re picking at 17?  The Bucks are needing solid scorers, defenders and hopefully they end up with the rim protector that’s so desperately missing but this is about adding pieces around Giannis, Middleton, Thon and Parker.… Read the rest

Language Can’t Be A Barrier

Posted in Bill's Blog
Should players who come from other countries, to the United States. to play professional sports, be forced to learn the language? That’s a recent discussion when it comes to baseball and some foreign players. Phillies CF Odubel Herrera and Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka both have very little understanding of the English language and thus when on the field, they require translators to accompany the coaches. Boston Red Sox TV analyst Jerry Remy has a problem with that. On Tuesday Remy said in regard to Tanaka, “I think it should be illegal. Learn baseball language. Learn — it’s pretty simple. You break it down pretty easy between pitching coach and pitcher after a long period of time.” Phillies Hall of Famer, Mike Schmidt, has apologized for stating that the team couldn’t build around the talented outfielder Herrera because he can’t relate to his teammates.… Read the rest
