Do the Panthers Have A Chance to Win?

The Falcons are somewhat of a robust team this year. They started off somewhat weak this year with a poor track record. They barely slipped past the giants and obtained that win. Now, here we are today. The next game is on Sunday, will the Falcons overcome the Panthers? Will the Panthers bounce back and become better? The Panthers, conversely, started out the year much better. This is a strong team that was able to keep a strong record as they were three and zero. Many people were talking about the value that Sam Darnold was bringing to the table […]

3 Big Soccer Transfers We’re Predicting To Happen In Spite Of COVID-19

With the leagues halted and crowds dispersed, our soccer itch can only be scratched by one thing: transfer talk. Some would argue coronavirus has left teams too reserved to splash the cash. But some players are just too talented to miss out on. Here are three major transfers about to happen, in spite of Covid-19. Timo Werner With Bundesliga resuming amidst the pandemic, it’s clear Timo Werner’s final days at RB Leipzig will be behind closed doors. The 24-year-old German international is a consummate goal-getter with lightning-quick pace: scoring 88 goals in 123 appearances. And his surprisingly low £52 million […]

Rogers is also an owner of MLB's Toronto Blue Jays and its stadium, Rogers Centre, as well as a large network of local and satellite television stations, radio stations and print and on-line magazines and newspapers. Besides Canada's obsession with the "national sport", the […]

Readers of ezdzine.com know that we generally take a very hard line against public subsidies for sports. So, I am a bit surprised to find myself, I think, on the other side for once. Travis Waldron at ThinkProgress, who has written some very nice pieces in the past about stadium subsides, I believe, gets one wrong here. Quoting a report by Republican Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, Waldron notes that, The National Football League (NFL), the National Hockey League (NHL), and the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) classify themselves as non-profit organizations to exempt themselves from federal income taxes on earnings.

Harsh Punishments, but No Death Penalty, for Penn State

The NCAA has hit Penn State with harsh penalties as punishment for the Jerry Sandusky case.  Penn State is put on probation for 5 years, is banned from bowl games for 4, loses numerous scholarships, is fined $60 million, and has the dreaded "vacating wins" penalty imposed on it (for the period 1998-2011).  It's players are allowed to transfer without penalty, which is also a penalty for Penn State football because it makes it easier for players to leave. No doubt about it, these are harsh penalties, and they seem appropriate to me.   There's no death penalty because of […]
