We're nearly to the halfway point of the fantasy regular season in many leagues - are you sitting pretty, or scrambling to fill holes created by underperforming stars? Confused with what to do this week? We're here to help.

In one game, who do you take: Manning or Favre?

Published Oct. 7, 2014

Peyton Manning joined Brett Favre as the only quarterbacks to ever throw 500 touchdowns. But who do you take in one game? The single game that you have to win. The one the whole world is watching. There can be no doubt about the answer.

Thunderstruck: Sports as a Special Victims Unit

Published Sept. 23, 2014

We all used to wake up every morning to look at the late scores from the night before. And maybe we still do - to an extent. But there was a definitive time last week that continues today - where the first thing I check is what athlete was arrested/committed domestic abuse/broke our societal covenant in some way.

Are NFL teams hiding bad behavior by other players?

Published Sept. 18, 2014

How many teams have players in their locker rooms who are in the kind of trouble currently dogging the NFL and that the teams are hiding with fingers crossed that they don't lose a player to suspension?

Plenty of blame to go around in bad week for the NFL

Published Sept. 16, 2014

This has been a difficult week for the National Football League, the most popular sport in the country, by far. And the affairs of Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and Roger Goodell have raised a series of questions and which may be difficult to answer, but which deserve our best try at answers.

Published Sept. 4, 2014

The 2014 season kicks off tonight as the Green Bay Packers travel to Seattle to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks. Here is a quick look at the starters and key contributors on offense, defense and special teams (as well as ways to interact with them).

NFL officials emphasis could lead to more points

Published Aug. 5, 2014

The NFL sent officials to Green Bay last week to talk to the players about new rules changes, and to emphasize existing ones. The results? Lots of laundry. Could that lead to a banner offensive year in 2014?

Huge salaries bedevil NBA and MLB most seriously

Published July 8, 2014

The world of professional sports is crazy over big salaries. But I wondered where the craziest people lived? So I went to math class and discovered that the NBA and MLB were the two leagues that have lost its collective mind.

"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. The mildly impressive thing is that, under "Ghostbusters" helmer Ivan Reitman's eye, the light, fluffy football trifle goes down almost as easily as designed.

Super Bowl ads offered a more entertaining show than game

Published Feb. 3, 2014

Super Bowl ads will fuel water cooler talk

Published Jan. 29, 2014

The advertisements themselves have gone from just being a launch of an overall campaign to becoming something specifically made for the game itself. More than half of the commercials that will air on Sunday will not be seen again.

Is Russell Wilson really "ours?"

Published Jan. 24, 2014

Russell Wilson will attempt to best Peyton Manning in next Sunday's Super Bowl, and if he does, there will no doubt be joy throughout this great state. After all, Wilson did play for the Wisconsin Badgers for one season. So does that make him "ours?"

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.
