Imagine, for a moment, that someone knocked on your door with a stunning new Porsche. It has all the bells and whistles one would expect a luxury vehicle to have. Leather seats, a custom sound system, the perfect shade of black (or red, or blue) paint. But it has no engine or wheels. (more…)
Today begins the three day event known as the NFL Draft. Hundreds of young kids will get the opportunity to realize their dream of making an NFL roster. I wanted to talk to someone who helps make those dreams a reality from a business standpoint. (more…)
And then there was Alabama v. Clemson.
As I get back into the post-holiday swing of things I wanted to share a few notes/thoughts on the bowl season. (more…)
This is the year the AFC gets a little crazy.
There isn’t a dominant team despite what fans want to believe. There are teams that are beginning to see a shift in their fortunes. Most of those teams play in the AFC East, which is where the root of the craziness could occur this season. (more…)

It’s already been a tough preseason for some fantasy football notables.
Within the span of ten days owners were no longer able to depend on the services of Jordy Nelson and Kelvin Benjamin; and within the span of four days owners very nearly lost Mike Evans and Randall Cobb.
Such is the nature of the real life NFL. (more…)
We all hope to draft them.
You know who I’m talking about. We want those players who played at such a high level late in the season that they get you so stoked about the next you can barely control your excitement.
