NFL Week 4: Locks Lumps & Luck (or Lack Thereof)

NFL Week 4: Locks Lumps & Luck (or Lack Thereof)

September 29, 2011 | Thyrl Nelson

This is not an inducement to gamble, in fact it should serve as quite the opposite. It is my attempt at picking all of the games (before injury reports are official) each week. The picks are broken into 3 categories, 5 picks that I love, 5 that I like and the rest. I would encourage anyone [...]

Who’s Feeling Lucky?

Who’s Feeling Lucky?

September 26, 2011 | Thyrl Nelson

I have long held to the belief that any college player that we’re talking about as the likely #1 pick in the draft at this time of year or around whom we’re building a “sweepstakes” usually sees that esteem (and his draft status) drop substantially before we actually get to the draft. That said, very [...]

Week 2 NFL: Locks, Lumps and Luck or Lack Thereof

Week 2 NFL: Locks, Lumps and Luck or Lack Thereof

September 15, 2011 | Thyrl Nelson

Let’s start by saying that this is not an inducement to gamble. Along with “close cover before striking” those may be amongst the most often ignored words of warning. This however may and probably will serve as the exact opposite of an inducement to gamble. I would however encourage you to play The MobTown Sports [...]

The Ravens, Ray Rice & the Chris Johnson Effect

The Ravens, Ray Rice & the Chris Johnson Effect

September 02, 2011 | Thyrl Nelson

It appears that the Ravens can now officially start worrying about Chris Johnson. Johnson agreed to a 4-year contract extension with the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, ending his holdout and putting him on course to be ready (they hope) for the beginning of the season, and therefore for the Titans week 2 match-up with the [...]

NFL Playing With a Stacked Deck…That’s My Lockout Lesson

NFL Playing With a Stacked Deck…That’s My Lockout Lesson

August 30, 2011 | Thyrl Nelson

If the last calendar year or so has taught us nothing else as sports fans, it’s taught us that the NFL is simply special and therefore able to operate under its own rules. The NBA lockout might as well be happening in Siberia somewhere based on the attention, or lack thereof, that it’s getting in [...]

The Schedule Suggests Ravens & Steelers Both Playoff Bound Again

The Schedule Suggests Ravens & Steelers Both Playoff Bound Again

August 09, 2011 | Thyrl Nelson

There seems but one safe bet when it comes to NFL football, and that is that there are no safe bets when it comes to NFL football. Every year though, we as fans tend to forget that anything can and usually does happen, that teams summarily written off before the season starts routinely find themselves [...]

Selig Should Deal A-Rod Out for a Year

Selig Should Deal A-Rod Out for a Year

August 05, 2011 | Thyrl Nelson

Playing poker with Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio may sound innocent enough on the surface. That probably explains why fans, at least to this point, have been largely dismissive of the latest A-Rod indiscretions (if true) and are expecting them to blow over quickly with little or no consequence. But while some will see this as [...]
