Seriously, Are We Back to Deflategate?

Concussion

Always strange to us how we can connect dots to seemingly different, but connected sports stories on any given day. On this date (March 3, 2016), there is a movement afoot to eliminate the chop block (sort of a simultaneous high and low football block that can crush a career), along with the Ivy League wanting to eliminate tackling in practice, plus soccer legend Brandi Chastain volunteering to donate her brain to science for CTE research. The chop block is not without its share controversy, but it does highlight the […]

Should the NFL be in the Judge Judy Business?

Angry Judy

 Yesterday, picking through the sports news, I came across yet the latest update in the Deflategate saga. It is one of those gifts, like really spicy Indian food, that keeps on giving. The Associated Press article by Larry Neumeister (October 26, 2015) entitled: “NFL: Judge’s ruling for Tom Brady was ‘unfathomable’,” caused, I must admit, a twinge somewhere in the nether regions of my gut. To quote from the piece: “NFL lawyers told a federal appeals court in Manhattan on Monday that it was ‘unfathomable’ that a judge could decide […]

Ray Rice is Looking Better

Ray Rice

Please forgive us for not spending half this post re-hashing all of the details of the Ray Rice domestic violence incident. Anyone with a room temperature IQ and a sense of right and wrong understands what he did was wrong. We don’t speculate on whether his skills qualify him for a return to football on athletic merit. We don’t know. Chuck lectures, consults and trains others on the topics of sports ethics; he doesn’t keep stats on “40 times” and production/productivity. We don’t know if Rice will ever wear a […]

Time to de-flate the rowboat

Rowboat

This blog will begin with an old, old story, told to me when I was a kid – which was a long time ago. Two guys of very little means, were also avid fishermen. One fine day, while passing a department store window, they happened to see a really sweet row boat. It was beautiful and just the thing to let them row out to where the big fish hid. They put together a plan. They would dress in greasy overalls and work boots, walk into the store like they […]

Sports Ethics: Deflate-gate, Deflated

Tom Brady Deflate-gate

Could we be the last people to comment on “the report” and the probable deflation of the New England Patriots game balls? Hopefully, yes. In case anyone believes we know something that you don’t; we don’t. As a public service (and our guess is as good as yours), here is how we see this whole thing unfolding: The NFL will come around to saying something about Brady; we figure it will cost Brady between 2 and 4 games. A lot of New England fans will rant and rave. That’s what […]
