Is Rex Grossman’s injury as bad for the Bears as the media has portrayed?
Why Fantasy Football Benefits the NFL
Recently I have been hearing more and more about how Fantasy Football is detrimental to the NFL. This wave of sentiment seems to have started with a few sports columnists, who, as “football purists”, clearly see all new-fangled ideas as “destructive to the spirit of the game”. They believe that fantasy football can encourage people to root for teams other than their home team, thereby (by means unknown), destroying the game. Next they will be asking us to abolish the forward pass, saying it “undermines the integrity of the game.” In all seriousness, though, most people who play fantasy football love it. It is a great way to feel in control of your own team, and promotes a sense of competition. For many people, it brings them closer to the NFL, rather than pushing them away.
Fixing Team USA
Team USA is in a sad state right now. The Dream Team concept has been an abject failure in recent years.
He has been to 2 Super Bowls. He is hailed as an offensive genius. His team is a perennial playoff contender. He is also one of the worst coaches in the NFL. A contradiction? Not when its Mike Martz.
