    Doesn’t it seem like whenever something weird happens in the NBA, commissioner David Stern has a hand in it?

    Every year college football’s stupid BCS system screws over at least ten teams when bowl invitations are handed out, and 2011 is no exception.

  • 9 Most Unlikely Pro Sports Cities

    9 Most Unlikely Pro Sports Cities

    For pro sports teams to succeed these days, they need more than a loyal fanbase. If that was all that was needed, there wouldn’t be so many defunct pro sports teams. Instead, what pro teams really need under today’s business model is corporate sponsorship and media revenue. Without those two things, teams are going to […]

    15 Highest NBA Salaries For The 2011-12 Season

    Now that we’re actually going to have a 2011-12 NBA season, I thought it would be fun to whip up a list of the top player salaries for this year. Why is a list of the NBA’s top salaries so amusing? It has to do with the league’s insanely complicated “soft” salary cap. This system, […]

    9 Greatest Backup Quarterbacks In NFL History

    Nothing gets NFL fans riled up like a good old-fashioned quarterback controversy, especially when a high profile backup quarterback is in the mix. In this regard, the 2011 NFL season has been a real treat, since we’ve got not one but two big-name backups stealing playing time and headlines. 
There is Vince Young in Philadelphia, […]

    15 Best Movember Mustaches From The NHL

    Now that Movember 2011 has officially come to an end, I thought it would be a good time to take stock of the best charity mustaches from the world of pro sports.

    9 Biggest Traitor Coaches In The History Of College Football

    When it was officially announced earlier this week that Urban Meyer, former football coach at the University of Florida, would be taking the head coaching job at Ohio State, I’m sure more than a few Florida fans spit on the ground and began cursing his name as a traitor. But that’s fine by me, because […]

    13 NHL Teams That No Longer Exist

    It seems like most NHL fans are happy to see a team back in Winnipeg this season. I know I am. Still, it’s always a shame when one town’s gain has to be another’s loss. In an ideal world, teams would just stay in one damn place. You wouldn’t have teams leaving hockey-mad towns to […]

    9 Obscure College Sports

    In the world of college sports, football and basketball get most of the glory. Then, when those seasons are over, you might hear about the College World Series (if you’re from Nebraska) or the Frozen Four (if you’re from North Dakota or Massachusetts). But that’s about it.

    10 Iconic Pro Sports Families

    As we get together with our families this holiday, we think a bit about some of the powerful families of sports. It’s kind of weird to imagine that, yes, the junior members of these families grew up in a place where dad was at the top of his game, bringing home bank. Nature? Nurture? Who […]
