No Money, More Problems

Posted on 18 July 2012 by derekandrews

While watching CNN to stay afloat on current events, I focused my eye on the news feed that was at the bottom of the screen, and what I saw next disappointed me. The headline read, “T.O. late on child support, could face jail time…”

As a sports fan, you hate to see an athlete with superior talent end his career in that way — always remembered for being a “cancer” in the locker room and not a leader, but that has been the case for Terrell Owens.

Throughout the era of astronomical contracts and endorsements, athletes today have more money and more problems. Money doesn’t grow on trees, but yet athletes spend foolishly as if it did, because they never had anything else. Also, is the faulty loyalty from associates who want to capitalize on their wealth. This is what William Rhoden calls a, “40 million dollar slave.”

It has been the same story for Terrell Owens, since he’s been out of the league, and it is getting worse. How can you make multiple millions of dollars over the course of your career, but can’t pay your bills? I’ll tell you how: he has had money stolen from him by close acquaintances and business partners, bad investments, and having kids by multiple women.

Like Allen Iverson, Antoine Walker, and Mike Tyson, T.O. has tried to make an attempt at a comeback for that final elusive contract to help get him back on his feet and play at top level again. This year, T.O. has had to face the reality that his football career is over and it is time to move on. Teams are building their franchises with character athletes, who have great talent, and don’t want an aged veteran who will not be a good teammate, or hurt the team by running their mouth.

Athletes like T.O. never think about the end. Stephen Covey famously said, “Begin with the end in mind,” but for athletes the moment is greater than the end. When athletes make wise decisions and prepare for their future, they won’t have to worry about chasing money, the money will chase them. For some, change doesn’t happen until you hit rock bottom, and T.O. has knocked on the door and it’s swung wide open. If these life woes don’t change him, they will break him. This recent struggle would break anybody in his position, but only he can get up and fix it. So T.O., GET UP AND MAN UP!

Time is right for Ravens to consider risk (and reward) of adding Moss

Time is right for Ravens to consider risk (and reward) of adding Moss

Posted on 14 February 2012 by Luke Jones

When Randy Moss announced the news of his intention to return to the NFL in 2012, I tried to dismiss him as an option for the Ravens as quickly as I could.

I just didn’t want to consider him as a real possibility to come to Baltimore.

The poor attitude, playing for three teams in his final season, and his turning 35 on Monday are all strikes against him. Not being able to help himself, Moss took to his Twitter account on Tuesday to fire back at former Minnesota Vikings teammate Cris Carter, who called the seven-time Pro Bowl receiver’s “quit mechanism” unlike any other superstar he’s been around.

The character blemishes are there, and there’s no way to overlook them. The guy can be a clown, and that’s putting it kindly.

His eye-popping numbers worthy of the Pro Football Hall of Fame include 153 touchdowns and 14,858 yards in 13 seasons, but you’re not getting the Moss of 1998 or even 2007 when he made a league-record 23 touchdown catches in his first season with the New England Patriots. His 2010 season split between New England, Minnesota, and Tennessee resulted in just 28 catches, 393 yards, and five touchdowns while wearing out his welcome in two places and making little impact at his final destination before announcing his retirement last summer.

But the past images of watching him sprint by a helpless cornerback or leap over a defender to haul in another touchdown are still too bright in my mind to ignore. Call me a sucker, but people said Moss was finished before he escaped football purgatory in Oakland and went on to have the best season of his career.

The possibility of the 6-foot-4 veteran still having something left in the tank cannot be overlooked by a team that was only a few tenths of a second away  — in holding onto a catch in the end zone — from a trip to the Super Bowl three weeks ago. Eliminating all other variables, the mere subtraction of the disappointing Lee Evans and his near-$6 million cap number and the addition of Moss at a cheaper rate is enough to make you salivate at the possibilities.

Moss certainly can’t do any worse than four receptions in an injury-plagued season and failing to secure a championship-clinching catch in the final seconds in Foxborough, right?

The first order of business before coach John Harbaugh and the Ravens should even consider welcoming Moss to Baltimore is determining where he stands physically. Can Moss still run with the speed to blow the top off a defense and force safeties to play deeper than they normally would? Would opposing defenses still have to account for him on every play?

If not, you run the risk of dealing with a broken-down former star with an ego still in its prime. In other words, the reward wouldn’t be worth the potential headaches.

But unlike the other volatile veteran receiver who will be on the open market, Terrell Owens, Moss isn’t returning from a serious knee injury. Other than the potentially cruel reality of being 35 years old and the question of how well he kept himself in shape over the last calendar year, there’s no reason to believe Moss isn’t up to the physical task of once again donning the cleats and striking fear in the hearts of opposing secondaries.

If the 40-time is right, you now move to the more complicated piece of the equation. You sit down with the combative receiver, reminding him he’s no longer in a position of power after a year away from the game. You press him to see how serious he is about not just playing again but also being part of a winning organization like he was in New England for three years — quite harmoniously — before an expiring contract flushed the relationship down the drain in year four. And reminding him of that heartbreaking defeat in Super Bowl XLII and how he’s never won a championship probably wouldn’t hurt, either.

You allow Moss to explain exactly what happened in his disastrous 2010 season.

And you listen.

“A team like the Ravens would be perfect,” Steve Wyche of the NFL Network told WNST.net on Tuesday. “I work with [former Patriots fullback] Heath Evans, who played with Randy in New England, and Heath said, ‘If Randy’s in a situation where he’s winning, where everybody on the team has bought in, he’s fantastic.’

“I talked to people at the Patriots when he was there. He was the leader. He was the guy who organized a lot of meetings. He was the guy who broke down the huddle.”

There Is No Bye Week For The 15-7-0

There Is No Bye Week For The 15-7-0

Posted on 10 October 2011 by Glenn Clark

You know how it works. 15 positive football observations, 7 “not so” positive football observations and one “oh no” moment from outside the world of football.

(As a reminder, we don’t do Baltimore Ravens analysis here. We do PLENTY of that elsewhere. This is about the rest of the world of football.)

15 Positive Observations…

1. I guess it’s safe to say Rob Ambrose made the right decision to not redshirt Terrance West

Especially seeing as how his 4TD’s helped Towson improve to 4-1 on the season with their win over Richmond Saturday night at Unitas Stadium….

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cT4vlLi_vWo[/youtube]

The Tigers are now 2-0 in the CAA for the first time EVER. Remember when they were picked to finish last in the conference? Nice call there.

(Editor’s note: Spiders QB-and USC transfer-Aaron Corp completed 31 of 34 attempts Saturday night. I still can’t figure out how Towson was ever able to stop them. How does someone go 31 or 34 and win???)

2. When they weren’t fighting, there was a pretty fun football game being played between the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers

For some reason, Roman Harper and Malcolm Jenkins decided to fight about a pretty impressive Steve Smith touchdown from Cam Newton…

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sq7gVv7I4MA[/youtube]

…Yeah I really have no explanation for that. I will reiterate what I’ve been saying about the Saints all season however. You can tell me all you want about their defense not being great. Based on how good Drew Brees and company are, they’re fine.

3. We want to write the Pittsburgh Steelers off, but Ben Roethlisberger just won’t let us

Sitting on my fantasy football bench, Big Ben managed to toss FIVE touchdowns for the Steelers in the win, pissing off everyone in the world who has no connection to the Steel City. Oh, and Daniel Sepulveda executed a perfect fake punt just to rub it in…

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rChOUXR7JyQ[/youtube]

Jonathan Dwyer also ran for over 100 yards as the bad guys beat the Tennessee Titans. That answers the age old question, “who is Jonathan Dwyer?”

4. BCS apologists might get their chance to say LSU-Alabama and Oklahoma-Oklahoma State ARE a playoff system for college football

We’ll start with LSU’s big win over Florida, a blowout that included a would-be touchdown on a fake punt-had it not been for a taunting call that we can all agree was questionable at best…

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xT_TGuoLdmk[/youtube]

Seriously?

Next, The Crimson Tide started the season with a quarterback controversy. In their big win over Vanderbilt Saturday night, AJ McCarron reminded everyone why that didn’t last very long…

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQrJYCbUFK0[/youtube]

Oh yeah. Trent Richardson is still pretty good too.

Elsewhere, Texas came into the Red River Rivalry this year with higher hopes based on the (Case) McCoy-(Jaxson) Shipley Combo Part 2. Landry Jones quickly ruined those hopes…

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7BEMeOhYwQ[/youtube]

The path to the BCS Championship Game is also easier for the Sooners this year based on the fact that there is no more Big 12 Big 12 Championship Game.

Which leads us finally to Oklahoma State, who finished on the good end of a 70-28 beatdown of Kansas Saturday…

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fgH624Jn-Y[/youtube]

Before you pencil Oklahoma into the national title game, a reminder that the Cowboys host this year’s “Bedlam” game in Stillwater. It’s significant.

5. Kellen Moore remains atop my “Heisman Trophy watch” personally, but I understand why everyone is so hot and bothered by Andrew Luck

Here’s my problem. Everyone always beats up the Boise State QB because the Broncos don’t play top-notch competition. For example, they shredded Fresno State most recently…

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Moapfuyqut4[/youtube]

…but thus far, the best team Stanford has beaten all season is Duke-and Duke was NOT playing with Miles Plumlee, Mason Plumlee, Marshall Plumlee or any other Plumlee anywhere on the planet…that I know of.

The Cardinal’s victim Saturday night was a less than impressive Pac 12 newcomer-Colorado. You only know anything about the game because Tiger Woods took a break from being crappy at golf to show up and watch the thing with John Elway…

tiger

Woods finished tied for 30th this weekend at an event won by some dude named Bryce Molder. Tied for 30th. Bryce Molder. Oh…and some dude threw a hot dog at him while he was playing. REALLY…

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMLvYzwNuuA[/youtube]

6. Cincinnati Bengals defense plus AJ Green equals late season games could be more interesting for Ravens than we want them to be

AJ Green was immediately more popular just for NOT being Chad Johnson or Terrell Owens. Now it looks like he’s really good to boot…

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-FUlm0MGeI[/youtube]

I don’t think Cincy can stay in the AFC playoff race all season by any stretch of the imagination, but it looks like they’re not going to fall apart either. Marvin Lewis’ team will have two chances to make life miserable in Charm City later this season.

7. Sooo….maybe Jim Harbaugh WAS worth all that money?

Until this point, I have refused to believe in the San Francisco 49ers despite their early season success. After their blowout win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday, I might have to start buying stock…

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59UTGUCaWo0[/youtube]

I’d say the Josh Morgan injury would hurt them, but they play in the NFC West. I get the feeling they could lose half their roster and still be in the mix.

WNST intern Ryan Morrison hooked me up with an advance copy of Tha Carter IV…I hope I’m not getting him in legal hot water by mentioning that. There was a humorous moment during Hurricane Irene where everyone in my house was singing along to this song. Don’t play it if you’re at work. Unless you work at The Gold Club. If you do, could you bring a Chap’s sandwich by the station Monday?

There’s a good chance I win the Breeders Cup at some point in the future.

The Sum Of All Fears

Posted on 17 August 2011 by Erich Hawbaker

I had a terrible thought the other day. After reading all about Carlos Zambrano’s latest meltdown and the talk of the Cubs looking for a way to unload him without paying him the rest of his ridiculous contract, it hit me. Could we see Zambrano in an Orioles uniform in the near future? It was one of those random epiphanies that just jumps into your head and takes you by surprise. But the more I think about it, the more afraid I get that it might actually happen.

During the tenure of Andy MacPhail and a little before that, the Orioles have had a peculiar habit of snapping up the Cubs’ rejects; Sammy Sosa, Rich Hill, Felix Pie, Derrek Lee. All of them were guys that MacPhail handled while he was running the Cubs, and all (except Sosa, who came here before Andy did) were supposedly proven major league material he brought here to make the Orioles better. NONE OF THEM even came close to meeting that expectation. Granted, the ex-Cubs wing is only a part of the Orioles Rest & Retirement Home For Aged Transient Big-Name Free Agents, but I digress. MacPhail’s track record when bringing in players from teams he worked with previously has been nothing short of disasterous. And having observed Zambrano firsthand while running the Cubs, would he be more likely to take a chance on him if the oppurtunity presented itself?  

Carlos Zambrano is the Terrell Owens of baseball; there’s no question that he has a lot of talent, but it is eclipsed by his inability to control his temper and get along with his teammates. But if the Cubs do indeed cut him loose, it’s highly unlikely that he’ll never pitch in the majors again at just 30 years of age. Could he be the next household name that the front office signs in their continuing attempt to convince us fans that they’re trying to win? Make no mistake, Zambrano is a bull in a china shop much like Albert Belle was. And for some reason, I have a very clear picture in my head of Jim Hunter and Rick Dempsey sitting behind the desk and explaining why this is a tremendous pickup for the Orioles and just what they need to start turning things around. King Peter’s propaganda machine rivals that of Fidel Castro.

Maybe I’m completely off my rocker on this one, and maybe I’m not. What do you think? Comments and discussion are much appreciated.

On Twitter’s 5th birthday; the 5 sports personalities who would’ve made it even better

On Twitter’s 5th birthday; the 5 sports personalities who would’ve made it even better

Posted on 22 March 2011 by Rex Snider

Yesterday afternoon, Ryan Chell reminded me that it was the 5th anniversary of Twitter’s existence. In the grand scheme of time flying by, it’s hard to believe an entire five years have passed since “tweets” became a staple of social media.

Granted, the infancy of Twitter was not nearly as resounding as we find it today. What started off as an informal forum for providing our random, incidental thoughts in concise form (140 typed characters or less) has now become a major thoroughfare for disseminating BREAKING NEWS and information.

Okay, it’s still dominated by boastful or self-depricating comments aimed at selling one’s perceived personal importance, in hopes of landing more daily followers. But, it’s information exchange, nonetheless.

So, to mark Twitter’s birthday, I have compiled a short list of sports personalities, both deceased and inactive, who could’ve made Twitter even more enjoyable for the common subscriber.

Forget the likes of Chad Ochcinco, Charlie Sheen, Mark Cuban and Terrell Owens. While their contributions are certainly noteworthy, I can think of five individuals who could’ve made Twitter even hotter for the typical sports fan.

Here’s my list …..

5) Jim Valvano – Perhaps, some will say Jimmy V would’ve equated to being a twin for another charismatic, former coach, Dick Vitale. Although, Vitale (ironically known as Dickie V) never realized Valvano’s level of success at the collegiate level; he doesn’t have the pelt on the wall, so to speak.

I think Jim Valvano would’ve merited a different reception, especially given his relentless charm and underdog shtick, which he embraced after leading the North Carolina Wolfpack to an improbably NCAA Championship, in 1983. I have a feeling Valvano would’ve equally embraced Twitter with his motivational technique and brimming popularity each and every March.

Indeed, this would’ve been the biggest time of year for his followers. And, he would’ve loved every moment of it, right?
.

4) Dale Earnhardt – Okay, let the calls of Rex’s “homer pick” begin with this one. But, if you’re not familiar with the marketing genius of Dale Earnhardt, you’ll likely never really know how much he emphasized on selling and branding the INTIMIDATOR image, both positively and negatively.

Earnhardt was famously known for taunting and rattling hotshot newcomer, Jeff Gordon, in the mid-1990′s. Yet, after realizing the booing and fan hatred was beginning to break Gordon’s spirit, Earnhardt took him under wing and they became great friends. Earnhardt is famously known for telling Gordon “it doesn’t matter if they cheer or boo your ass, as long as they react. The day they don’t make any noise when your name is announced, you’re in trouble.”

I’m not convinced Dale Earnhardt would’ve personally tweeted. But, I can guarantee he would’ve hired somebody to do it. He was a 9th grade dropout, but he expertly understood the financial value of exposure and he’s credited with being the first NASCAR driver to sell t-shirts at racetrack vendor trailers. Today, it’s a BILLION DOLLAR industry.

In just another difference between he and his son, Dale Earnhardt maximized every opportunity to appeal to those who loved him, as well as those who loved to HATE him. He marketed souvenirs for both extremes. He was also the first NASCAR competitor to secure his name with a .com at the end. His presence on Twitter would’ve been assured, and that’s a guarantee.
.

3) Yogi Berra – Yes, I’m keenly aware that he is still alive. But, he’s also 85 years old and enjoying the quieter, simpler side to life. Heck, lets face it, Yogi probably has some interesting personal takes on Twitter and social media, but he’s not bound to start describing such thoughts with a keyboard.

While he is famously known for some of the funnier quotes, ever, I think it’s also important to remember such musings might not have the same effect in written form. That said, I believe he would’ve loved internet thoroughfares for expressing himself in his youth. He’s a entertaining communicator, period.

I think Yogi Berra could’ve been a guy to harmlessly poke at others, via Twitter. I wouldn’t imagine him as disrespectful or even insulting. But, daily rants about anything and everything are something I could envision, especially with his quick, natural wit. And, in his own unique way, Yogi’s body of language would’ve been distinctive.

Sunday Money – 6-Pack

Sunday Money – 6-Pack

Posted on 19 November 2010 by Rex Snider

For weeks, I’ve been boasting about my preseason predictions for the Baltimore Ravens. On September 8th, I previewed each game on the schedule, on-air, and gave my opinion on how things would turn out.

I kept that schedule and it’s hanging on the wall of my home office. To date, I’ve been correct on 8 of the 9 games. The lone blemish is the contest against the Miami Dolphins. Yep, I had that game in the loss column.

Hey, the good news is I forecasted the loss against the Atlanta Falcons as the final defeat of the 2010 season. That’s correct, I picked the Ravens to run the table throughout the remainder of the regular slate of games.

And, I’ll stick by it …..

Since I’ve been so accurate with my predictions over the past couple months, I’ve decided to share my weekly prognostications with YOU, the listener and reader. It’s my early Christmas gift to anyone who reads my blogs.

I have no doubt that when my peers read this, they’ll have some provoking thoughts …..

Drew Forrester : “I like Rex, but I’m not following his advice – he freakin’ texted me from Vegas and asked which baseball games to bet. By the way, he won a few hundred bucks ….. and I’m still waiting for my Chinese lunch.”

Glenn Clark : “I don’t really like Rex, and I absolutely NEVER, EVER agree with him. I’m certain his predictions will be LAUGHABLE ….. if not, INSANE. So, before I even look at his picks, I’ll get this outta the way ….. DUDE, YOU’RE JUST WRONG.”

Thyrl Nelson : “His fantasy football team, Rexual HerAssMent, is 3-7 …. that’s all I need to know.”

Regardless of what others might say, you can rest assured that my LOCKS for the weekend will come to fruition. You’ll make money, guaranteed. Count on this 6-pack of predictions …..
