Are We Too Critical In Our Remarks?

March 18, 2016
By

As a follow-up to yesterday, I was thinking about all the TV and radio shows where sport authorities talk about current athletic teams and/or players.  Just as those sports personalities from yesterday’s blog were suspended, most call-in shows on radio tend to criticizeplayers and teams rather than talk about the positives.  An example is...

Air Jordan

An interesting article in Sports Illustrated listed the 30th edition of an Air Jordan shoe.  It is called the AJXXX version.  What was interesting to the writer of this article was the doodle that the designer Tinker Hatfield placed on the back of the shoe.  I won’t even try to describe what it is. ...

Do you wonder what the deciding factor is in picking the “at large” teams for the NCAA tournament?  The conference tournament championships and league champions are automatics.  You make it as one or the other but not for both.  So how do the others get in?  The factors are:  Power Ranking (wins over rated teams)...

Ron Rivera is the coach of the Carolina Panthers.  Even though they were favored this year, they lost to the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl.  If history is anything, look for Ron Rivera to bounce back and win a Super Bowl in the very near future.  After all, he had 3 losing seasons...

When Oscar Robertson was evidently misinterpreted in a recent interview, the question of his basketball feats compared to Stephen Curry’s feats was the subject of much argument again.  As you might know, Oscar averaged a triple/double for his career.  Curry has been pouring in 50+ points in a game quite frequently.  So, you hear...

Black Eye

A lot of you kidded me when I got a black eye recently.  It truly was the result of glaucoma surgery and not any other incident.  Whether you believe this or not, I don’t really care.  It did, however, bring up a few funny incidents that have occurred in the recent past. Bill Bilicheck of...

Most of you probably know about the brawl that occurred during a Ben Davis/Pike girls basketball game this past season.  The IHSAA suspended both programs and banned them from this year’s state tournament.  Last year the IHSAA had to do the same with the boys’ programs after a Hammond/Griffith brawl.  In this case, Griffith...
