Report: NFL Owners Didn't Actually Vote On The New Anthem Policy Report: NFL Owners Didn't Actually Vote On The New Anthem Policy

Yesterday, Roger Goodell proudly unveiled the NFL’s new policy regarding players and the national anthem.

NFL Owners Can Be Shitheads Without Donald Trump's Help NFL Owners Can Be Shitheads Without Donald Trump's Help

One day during the 2017 offseason, I went to Paul Brown Stadium to interview Cincinnati Bengals owner Mike Brown. Like a lot of grandfathers, Brown enjoys reading history books.

Ed Hochuli Is Off Living His Best Life Ed Hochuli Is Off Living His Best Life

The NFL this week approved a rule that prohibits players from lowering their helmets to initiate contact. Because this seems like something that might be difficult for officials to enforce, I reached out to former referee Ed Hochuli to request an interview. Hochuli, who retired in March, emailed back a few minutes…

Reigning Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles will still be stuck as the Eagles’ back-up QB heading into next season, as long as Carson Wentz is healthy.

What If The NFL Were Regulated By OSHA? What If The NFL Were Regulated By OSHA?

Last month, 253 men got new jobs. The process was highly publicized, and employers announced new hires to an audience of millions on live television. It’s likely that no one in the Cowboys’ stadium, where the 2018 NFL Draft took place, was thinking about them that way, though. Instead, they called them rookies,…

Saquon Barkley Might Be Worth It, If The Giants Take A Page From The Patriots Saquon Barkley Might Be Worth It, If The Giants Take A Page From The Patriots

We all had a good time dunking on Giants GM Dave Gettleman a few weeks back, after Gettleman didn’t hesitate to draft running back Saquon Barkley before shaking his cane at all the analytics eggheads who questioned the long-term value of selecting a running back with the No. 2 overall pick.
