I’ve decided to start a new segment. I read lots of sports blogs with great posts but not all of them fit into what I talk about on this blog. So, in order to share the things that I’ve loved this week, Ever Friday I will write about several blog posts I’ve found particularly interesting. This week I’m kicking off with…
Reducing Off-Season Arrests of NFL Players by Ruing Sports, Alicia Jessop – In light of recent arrests and team dismissals, this is a great post about how the NFL is attempting to deal with these issues, including possible CBA terms.
Commission Approves Changes by AFL.com – I love a good CBA discussion and these changes to rules and the discussion of free agency is very interesting and, I think, good ideas. I have read this article at least 4 times.
Basketball Australia to Review Olympic Travel Plans by Sport Biz Insider, Tony Harper – As the product of a women’s college, few things get me in a tiff like gender inequality. Apparently, returning from the Olympics, the women’s team traveled economy while the men traveled business. NOT OKAY.
East vs West AFL All Star Game Will Not Work by The Roar, Michael DiFabrizio – I love All-Star Games. Every single one. And this article really got people talking (yes, even me) and this is not a topic that’s going to go away anytime soon. The thing that I love more than All-Star Games is anarchy!
Using Replacement Refs Would Be A Disaster For The NFL by Forbes SportsMoney, Monte Burke – More CBA stuff!!! Well, sorta. The refs want things and the NFL won’t give it to them and then: STRIKE. Now, with the beginning of the season on the horizon they’ve gotta sort this out. Or else.
