As collectors, the cards we collect and our reasons for collecting vary widely. We all have our story, especially us old guys, and here is mine.
I remember the first card I ever owned, a 1971 Topps Dick Green. I was seven. I don’t recall how it came into my possession, nor did I realize what that single card was going to inspire. I’ll be honest, at that time I didn’t even know who Dick Green was, with the only athlete that I recall having knowledge of at that time being Johnny Unitas. But the times they More >

Total QBR was created by ESPN to evaluate a Quarterback’s total contribution to the game. This would concern not only his passing numbers (as does the traditional Quarterback Rating), but it would also include his sacks, fumbles, his running ability, and penalties incurred.
I think it’s safe to say that the traditional Quarterback Passer Rating is outdated. I’d venture to say that 99.9% of today’s fans and experts could not recite the formula for today’s passer rating. I mean, who designs a system where 158.3 is the maximum rating? I think you take Pi – 3.1415926525 – More >

As the 2011 season began the Oakland Raiders were confident that they were going to reward Al Davis with the team’s first playoff berth since 2002. Jason Campbell had a good command of the offense and Richard Seymour had the defensive troops playing with intensity and togetherness. Behind these two pillars were a plethora of emerging stars headlined by Darren McFadden and Jacoby Ford. This team was sure to make Mr. Davis proud. As the season began to unfold , surprises sprang up in numerous ways both positive and negative.
Game one was a classic AFC West More >

There’s something I haven’t been able to understand for a while now. Something that has really bothered me . We all sit down to watch out favorite sports whether it is football, baseball, basketball ,hockey and even racing. The one thing I always ask myself now is ; “ Where has the passion in the sport gone?” A lot of people will argue that it is still there, and there is nothing wrong in the world of sports today, is that the truth though?
It’s not just one specific player or one specific team, who are guilty More >

As I write this article, my World Champion Green Bay Packers stand alone with an 8-0 start. I understand that I have some bias in writing this article because I feel the Pack will repeat this year and win yet another Super Bowl. The biggest problem facing the Packers this year is their defence; especially the defensive line in my opinion. With the loss of Cullen Jenkins to the Philadelphia Eagles in free agency and the often injured Mike Neal out at the time; opponents are able to focus on Clay Matthews and shut him down More >

There’s a reason they cheat to win. College football is where it is at. In the Southeast, the names are immortal: Herschel, Bo, Peyton. In the Midwest and West Coast, it’s no different. The coaches are revered as gods—Woody Hayes, Bo Schembechler, the Bear—and we are stunned to see them fall from the lofty peaks when they do. In the midst of a fascinating baseball season, pit against one of the most dramatic work stoppages in recent NFL memory, what has consistently dominated the sports consciousness? College football. As a transplant from Kentucky (the pseudo-South) to More >
