I Am Suing

The Saints’ season ticket holders are suing the NFL and its commissioner, Roger Goodell, after Sunday’s NFC Championship Game, where a missed ‘pass interference’ call allowed for the LA Rams to come back and win the game in overtime, booking their ticket to the Super Bowl and ending New Orleans’ season.

NHL Midseason Award Winners

As of January 20th, 2019, we’re past the halfway point of the season and we’re coming upon the All-Star break; I think it’s time to give out some trophies.

What’s Goalie-ing On?

Toronto’s goalie situation is a bit…weird. Both our main goalie and our backup goalie got injured. Freddie Anderson is out with a groin injury and Garret Sparks out with a concussion, no thanks to Nylander. So, the Leafs traded away a 5th round pick in the 2020 draft to the Florida Panthers for goaltender Michael […]

Minnesota’s Discovered Forward Depth

Back on December 6th, the Minnesota Wild traveled to Calgary only to be shut out 2-0. Flames winger, Elias Lindholm, scored twice from the right circle, cleanly beating Wild backup goaltender, Alex Stalock. Shutout losses are always disappointing. However the main concern exiting the game was not the team’s on ice performance but the health […]
