Huge salaries bedevil NBA and MLB most seriously

"Draft Day" is a nice football movie for people who don't like football

Published April 11, 2014

"Draft Day" is an ad, less for the NFL Draft - though it is conveniently coming up in just a month - and more for the league itself. It's a hopeful attempt to get people to mindlessly consume a sport that's becoming more and more difficult to mindlessly consume.

Packers and Bears stumble, stagger toward playoffs

Published Dec. 24, 2013

As hard as it might be for any football fan to imagine, the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears, of all teams, will play for the title in the NFC North Sunday in Chicago. Although we love our Packers and we hate dem Bears, it stretches credulity to think that one of these two teams is going to be a division champion and will host a first-round playoff game.

Published Oct. 25, 2013

The Green Bay Packers have a chance to separate themselves from the rest of the NFC North this weekend with a win in Minnesota and Detroit facing a tough Dallas team. It's amazing to think about that, considering the key players the Packers have lost to injury. But, they're not as bad off as other teams around the league.
