    21 Awesome Punt Return GIFs

    Earlier this week I was writing about the Rams’ shocking upset of the Colts, which turned on three huge plays from rookie Tavon Austin, one of which was a 98-yard punt return touchdown.

The 1964-65 season was Howe’s 19th in the league, and while it certainly wasn’t his best, it was still pretty impressive, as the 36-year-old (at the time) recorded 29 goals, 47 assists and 104 […]

    8 NFL Players Who Have Been Arrested Since The Season Began

    The NFL is not enjoying a great year PR-wise. Not that it matters. Football is like crack to Americans, so it’s no big deal that Aaron Hernandez is arrested for having murdered over 52,000 people, Richie Incognito is threatening to steal Mel Gibson’s title of America’s Sweetheart, and Pacman Jones is still allowed to live […]

    The 13 Greatest Goalie Fights in NHL History

    We’re supposed to disapprove of line brawls in hockey because they make the game look silly and barbaric. However, I don’t really buy that.
