Sports like any other field encounters problems. Problems related to specific players, problems related to finances of a certain team or board or the sport in general, problems related to dynamic changes in it's structure, problems related to to dying popularity of the sport all come under this. And when problems/issues (In this article I think the two terms are interchangeable) come, "experts" follow. We see talking heads on the television and we see thousands of articles about it on the Internet. It is predominantly the reason why sites like Bleacher Report form. These sites become areas where people ...

NFL Rooney Rule Ridiculous?

By Carrie Daklin On May - 22 - 2009ADD COMMENTS
In 2003, The Rooney Rule was instituted by the NFL in response to a report commissioned by the late Johnny Cochran (famed O.J. attorney) and Cyrus Mehri. The report, published in 2002, lambasted the dearth of black head coaches in the NFL. One of the more ridiculous statements that it made was "...that black coaches averaged 1.1 more wins per season than white coaches and led their teams to the playoffs 67 percent of the time, compared with 39 percent of the time for White coaches". Do they dance better, too? How absurd, to suggest that simply because a coach is black, he has ...

David Ortiz Reminds Us Why Sports Matter

By Steve Auger On May - 22 - 2009ADD COMMENTS
There’s an Aerosmith song that begins with the lyrics, “There’s something wrong with the world today...” Never before have truer words been spoken. The United States is caught in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Millions of people are jobless. The Fed expects the unemployment rate to reach a staggering 9.6 percent. Far too many families have lost or are losing their homes. Seniors, on the verge of retirement, have seen their nest eggs vanish in the stock market. They are now left to ponder how they’ll survive the rest of their days. Sports, now more than ever, are so crucial to so ...

The 20 Hottest Sports Movie Babes

By Joe Yanarella On May - 22 - 2009ADD COMMENTS
For guys, there's only one thing better than a sports movie and that's a sports movie featuring a smokin' hot babe. While movies like "Hoosiers," "Miracle," and "Rocky" get our adrenaline pumping, only an athletic and toned female sweating up a storm can bring out that extra boost of testosterone from the male audience. Some of our sexy stars can knock down three-pointers, some bend it like Beckham and others just look really awesome in a cheerleading uniform (Cheerleading is totally a sport!), here's a look at the Top 20 Hottest Sports Movie Babes Ever.

The University of North Dakota will always be the Fighting Sioux to us, and to every other die hard UND athletics fan. Johnny Toews would agree with me.  Recently, the President and other higher ups of UND decided they will retire the name and logo in October. A few years back, the NCAA told UND that they had to get approval from all tribes by the end of next hockey season in order to keep the name and logo.  Well, a month ago, the first tribe voted.  They overwhelmingly voted three to one in favor of UND keeping the name. Even with that ...

Why the NFL’s Rooney Rule Is Meaningless

By Jared Zeidman On May - 21 - 2009ADD COMMENTS
Fact: There needs to be an immediate increase in non-white coaching figures in every level of football, both amateur and professional. If the NFL really wanted to do something more than a shrewd public relations campaign, they would force every NFL coaching staff to have a certain percentage of minority figures. Fiction: The Rooney Rule helps this happen. For those who do not know, The Rooney Rule (named after Steelers’ owner Dan Rooney) is a policy enforced by the NFL that forces teams to interview at least one minority candidate for any coaching vacancy. The rule is in the news again since Commissioner Roger ...

The Top Five Upcoming Stadiums in Pro Sports

By Collin Cooper On May - 21 - 2009ADD COMMENTS
These are the top 5 Stadiums that are currently being constructed. These facilities can consider themselves very lucky as they crept in right before the banking crisis. I have a feeling that we will not see many stadiums come online after these 5 open so enjoy them. Three of these stadiums kept their respected teams (Penguins, Marlins & Twins) in town. The other two stadiums are over the top in luxury amenities. While Luxurys are great, they don't alway equal a great new stadium.
