Epic Lions 'fail', Mike Florio and 'yellow' journalism

Posted 03-21-2012 at 07:38 AM by SloMotion

So, I see this article posted up on B&G. That's one of the things I like about the Black & Gold, they do a lot of my legwork and bring the news to right to ya', no need to spend too much time surfing other sites. Personal thanks to WhoDat!656 for birddogging this little gem, just another reason to dislike Mike Florio. That's right, Mike Florio, WhoDat Nation knows him well.

Recent History, Revisited

Many of us overlooked the Vicodin scandal a few years ago that included, among the fallout, a dismissed Director of Security who countered with a lawsuit for said result...

We were, after all, basking in the glory of Lombardi Gras.

Consequently, the Saints used some fancy legal maneuvering and the League Office to dodge a bullet by means of arbitration; the league office was not amused by this...cleverness...

There is a great deal of information on the...

Judge Slowly

Posted 03-06-2012 at 04:51 PM by xan

There's a breakdown in our society. We use to be a civilization that prized justice, equity, truth and honesty. Dedicated professionals sought facts, verified with the proper context. There was a reward for precision, for perspective, and for patience.

No More.

We have trained ourselves to react to every statement, misstatement, fact, and lie as if, without our personal Armageddon-like judgment, total annihilation would ensue and we would all be cast into the Pit of...

Respect for Ryan Braun

I'd like to get on my soapbox for a bit about the Ryan Braun situation. What you are about to read will probably go against the common public opinion - which is already labeling Braun as a cheat and a fraud and ready to jettison Braun with an endless and unrelenting supply of taunts this coming season.

But I, for one, have been impressed with the professionalism and maturity that Braun has shown during this process. Let's give this man credit. Given the gravity of the allegations...

I've been seeing this headline bandied about and I've been thinking. I remember when the Lions signed Joique Bell off New Orleans practice squad.
