Kallas: NFL Won By ‘Only’ Paying $765 Million, But What About The Future?

Does this solve the same issues in the future for NFL players? Not at all. Does this solve the same issues for youth football players? Not at all. Can those issues be solved? Well, that’s the next billion-dollar question coming down the pike.

Kallas: Baseball’s Gigantic A-Rod Mistake

It’s not hard to believe that Bud Selig and the powers-that-be in Major League Baseball could screw up the whole A-Rod situation.

Kallas: Of Course Dodgers Outfielder Yasiel Puig Is An All-Star

Puig can hit, hit with power, run, field and has a howitzer for an arm. There’s nothing he can’t do on a baseball field.

Kallas: Hard To Believe Anthony Bosch Will Testify Without Deal From Government

Everyone seems sure that Anthony Bosch will just show up and testify. How can this be? Why would Bosch incriminate himself?

Kallas: If Your Goalie Stands On His Head And You Still Lose, What’s Next?

So what happened to the New York Rangers? Did they take a step back this year? Well, coach John Tortorella says no, but the correct answer — from goalie Henrik Lundqvist — is yes.

Kallas: Kobe Bryant Simply Doesn’t Get It, And He Showed That On Sunday

Kobe Bryant is smarter than this, but he just doesn’t get it. Hopefully he will now.

Kallas: Did Mike Rice Have To Be Fired? Of Course He Did

In the 21st century, you simply can’t put your hands on a kid. Or throw balls at a kid. Or kick a kid. Or use homophobic slurs toward a kid. Rice did all of these things and still kept his job, until now. And that’s the scariest thing of all.

Kallas: 2 HS Football Players Found Guilty Of Rape In Steubenville — Now What?

On Sunday morning, Judge Lipps held that both defendants “are hereby adjudicated delinquent beyond a reasonable doubt on all three counts as charged” — that’s the juvenile court equivalent of “guilty.”

Kallas: Breaking Down The Knicks, The Return Of Amar’e And Jeremy Lin

The return of Stoudemire shouldn’t really be a big deal. It’s very clear that Anthony, the main man no matter who is on the Knicks, has to get the overwhelming majority of his minutes at the four.

Kallas: Jack Taylor’s Record-Setting Game Misses The Point (Part 2)

Jack Taylor’s 138 point performance was like shooting fish in a barrel.

Kallas: Jim Schwartz And The NFL: Dumb And Dumber

Well, you can’t make this stuff up. By now you’ve all seen the disputed touchdown play in Texans vs. Lions game on Thanksgiving day.

Kallas: Jack Taylor’s Record-Setting Game Misses The Point

Yes, 138 points is hard to fathom. Sure, it’s amazing. But the feat of Grinnell’s Jack Taylor also raises a number of questions.

Kallas: Did Prince Fielder’s Bad Slide Cost The Tigers The World Series?

The poor play by Fielder, Lamont and Peralta cost the Tigers something very important: THE LEAD. And that is something that the Detroit Tigers, at that point down 1-0 and soon to be down 2-0 after that play, desperately needed.

New England Patriots v Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Kallas: Are You Really What Your Record Says You Are?

Unfortunately, there simply doesn’t seem to be any team in the AFC East that can seriously challenge the Patriots.
