Jeff Loria Proves Bobby Cox’s Point

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

I have never seen Florida Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria in person, and I never really want to. And not just because the guy is a total douchenozzle. I've always had this mental image of Loria being no taller than 5-foot-4, allowing his physique to match his Napoleonic attitude. (It also ...

A.J. Smith Has Jumped The Shark

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

This was originally going to be my own hate-filled rant about Chargers' GM AJ Smith and his growing Woody Hayes-like insanity. Instead, I'll just let Yahoo!'s Michael Silver say it for me: "Make no mistake: Deciding whether Tomlinson will remain with the Chargers, at least privately, is part of Smith's job. ...

D-Bag of the Week: Marion Jones

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

You know what, we love it when disgraced athletes make totally irrelevant statements that can in now way be quantified. But hey, everybody has the right to speak their mind. And we have a right to tell them to stop doing so. This brings us to Marion Jones. You remember her, ...

D-Bag Of The Week: Roger Clemens

Saturday, December 15th, 2007

We could have gone with anyone named in the Mitchell Report with this one really. But I think we all know who the most obvious choice was. We went with the guy who had the most to lose from being mentioned and it's clearly Roger Clemens.Honestly, we've suspected that Clemens ...

D-Bag Of The Week: Kevin Riley

Monday, October 15th, 2007

Man, I've never felt so bad for someone from Cal. Seriously, Kevin Riley has to have had a rough last two days. He made the type of mistake you can't recover from quickly. The redshirt freshman stepped in admirably for injured starting quarterback Nate Longshore, and led the then No. ...

D-Bag Of The Week: Norv Turner

Monday, October 1st, 2007

In case you hadn't noticed, this feature took a bit of a break because we were trying to figure out where to put it during the week. Since football has started we decided to put it on Sunday night/Monday morning so we could include all of that action in our ...
