Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 4

by

Heading into week #4 is where most of us start to see our leagues taking shape and you have a pretty good idea how good your team is. With 3 weeks of statistical data to pull from we now can make roster changes and adjustments based on what we have seen as opposed to working on blind faith. Answers to some of the pre-season questions are starting to get answered. We can now say with confidence that Stephen Jackson is too old and Eddie Lacy looks a lot like Chris Johnson but not in a good way. The Saints defense isn’t going to be good and Bobby Rainey reminds us that you don’t have to be on a good team to score fantasy points.

I am sorry to say that if your team is really hurting you will not find much relief on the waiver wire this week. Even with all ..click here to read more

Blake Bortles Or Teddy Bridgewater On the Fantasy Football Waiver Wire

by

Fantasy Football’s week 4 waiver wire offers up yet another opportunity and dilemma. Two starting QBs will hit the wire this week and whether you have a QB on bye or need a boost, both are appealing. But which of these two rookies do you hedge your bets on?

The waiver wire is a funny thing. It’s easy to tell you to go out and get this guy because he is a starter. Yet what casual players don’t realize is that when you are investing a pick, a spot, or money on a player you are also giving up a pick, a spot, and bidding money on another. That is why you need to choose your wire picks carefully, especially when you have two guys available at the same position.

Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles could make your life easier or tougher depending upon how badly you need a QB. If you ..click here to read more

Dolph Ziggler Is Becoming Hard To Root For

by

Ever since the days of the Attitude Era, it’s become harder and harder to distinguish what a “good guy” is in the world of wrestling.

With the inception of that era, gone were the traditional bubble gum good guys telling you to say your prayers and take your vitamins. There was no black and white, merely different shades of grey in which everyone operated. It was the time of the anti-hero.

All these years later, nothing has changed. The bad guys are often the ones with the fairest points and the most logic while the good guys are the ones making dick jokes and antagonizing the bad guys who either committed marginal wrongs or none at all. They are hypocritical, egotistical and behave like your average bro at a brodown.

With that in mind, it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to cheer for someone like Dolph Ziggler.

When Ziggler is playing the heel, it’s perfect ..click here to read more

WWE Night of Champions 2014 Thoughts

by

I succumbed to the propaganda and plunked down the $9.99 for the WWE Network and Night of Champions pay-per-view with the hope I would see a more exciting event than I am used to pay for.

For the $9.99 catchphrase and the hope the company is trying to move on from a failing reality era of the business, I certainly got my money’s worth, and in the process, saw great matches and a solid lineup that will move us into the last three pay-per-views of the year.

Here are some general thoughts of what will happen in the near future, which is highlighted by the notion of what the hell was Seth Rollins thinking trying to cash in on Brock Lesnar. Has the WWE lost its freaking mind?

The WWE works conceptually when men of equal proportion of dynamic feud with each other Rollins and Cena may make sense ..click here to read more

WWE Night of Champions 2014 Results and Recap

WWE Night of Champions 2014 delivered one of the most entertaining special events in recent months. An unpredictable rematch between John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar for the WWE world championship and the return of Dean Ambrose highlighted a card which featured very good-great matches from start to finish.

This main-event was a real tough one to predict. The rumor mill swung back and forth almost daily on who was going over. The way the angle played out on the go-home RAW led me to believe that Lesnar was going over. Regardless, it was one of the most unpredictable championship matches the WWE has booked in quite some time.

Brock Lesnar retained the WWE world title via disqualification over John Cena. The match had a real big-time feel to it. Cena took Lesnar off of his feet early with a clothesline and hit the A.A. within the first two minutes of the match. ..click here to read more

Brock Lesnar Must Retain At WWE Night Of Champions 2014

by

WWE Night of Champions is several hours away and fans are in a panic. What if Brock Lesnar loses? What if we are subjected to seeing John Cena leave as WWE champion? I join you in your concern and it is imperative moving forward that Lesnar retain the belt at WWE N.O.C.

I don’t think I am making any kind of startling revelation here. But there is serious cause for concern that Lesnar will be leaving the PPV tonight without the WWE world championship. I left RAW feeling that Cena had a good shot of winning and Seth Rollins was cashing in, leaving Brock as the odd man out. That just cannot happen!

Brock is the first true superstar that the WWE has had carry the title (other than The Rock’s brief reign) in several years. Brock is a true difference maker. All you need to do is look at the ratings ..click here to read more

Roman Reigns Out Indefinitely, Off Night Of Champions

by

The WWE babyface side just got a lot thinner. Roman Reigns will not only be missing WWE Night of Champions but will be missing some ring time over the next few weeks. Reigns underwent emergency surgery and has been placed on the D.L.

News broke Saturday that Reigns had emergency surgery for an incarcerated hernia. The surgery will keep him on the shelf for a minimum of 4-6 weeks and up to three months. WWE.com has a brief interview up on their website with Reigns’ surgeon Dr. Chris Amann.

“I was in contact with both Roman and the surgeon who performed the operation in Nashville [Saturday]. Roman had developed acute abdominal pain in his hotel room [Friday] night after his match,” Dr. Amann told WWE.com. “This wasn’t related to a specific injury that occurred in the ring. Roman has had a pre-existing hernia ..click here to read more

Most Patriotic Wrestlers in Pro Wrestling History

by

Something is going to give at Night of Champions. It has to. The card is so uninspiring that there has to be an angle that causes excitement or despair (like Undertaker) losing to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XXX).

I think (and this has been floating in my mind since my good friend Chris McLeod) discussed it on Facebook) that “We the People” may see the patriot from Silsby, Texas, Mark Henry, turn his back on Old Glory.

Watch it happen. The theme of a wrestler turning his back on his country has been a constant in wrestling circles for decades. While this angle is fresh and seems a bit awkward, it still resonates with those of us who bleed red, white and blue.

With the idea of a changing of patriotism (which may also lead to a Mark Henry/Jack Swagger feud) here are six of the most patriotic wrestlers in the history of ..click here to read more

WWE SmackDown Results and September 19 Recap

by

Roman Reigns and Rusev collide in a huge WWE Friday Night SmackDown main-event on the Night of Champions go-home show.

MATCH 1: WWE TAG TEAM CO-CHAMPION JIMMY USO (W/JEY USO) VS. STARDUST (W/GOLDUST) We get an inset promo from the Dust Brothers, and it’s one of their weird-ass promos about a cosmic key and whatnot. The match starts, and the two jockey for position with a lock-up. They trade a few blows, then Jimmy nails a clothesline out of the corner. Stardust gets a rope break off a waistlock, then misses a clothesline. Jimmy hits a couple of strikes and goes for a Samoan drop, but Stardust counters it into a neckbreaker. Stardust stomps Jimmy down, then stomps him in the gut. He nails a forearm to the head, then stands on Jimmy in the corner. Jimmy comes back with an uppercut, but Stardust recovers and drops down to hit a kick ..click here to read more

The NFL Is A Mess

by

I am a huge NFL fan. I love the wonderful, graceful, and talented NFL players that lay their bodies on the line for my entertainment.  I love seeing these people show off their talents. I like to discuss what happened in the games with other people.  Sports, such as the NFL are supposed to be a fun way to escape from the world’s problems.  We fans are supposed to be able to hang out in front of our TVs, or go to a bar, and watch our favorite teams play.

In the past few weeks, though, the NFL has been taking body blows from the media, political figures, fans, special interest groups, and sponsors due to illegal off the field activities by various players. Lately, the NFL coverage by ESPN and other outlets has turned into CNN, MSNBC, or Fox News. Instead of discussion of the games, there’s discussion of off the field issues ..click here to read more
