REDSKINS ROOKIE QB COLT BRENNAN

The Washington Redskins defeated the Indianapolis Colts 30-16 on Sunday in the 2008 NFL Hall of Fame Game. The preseason matchup unofficially kicks off the new football season.

Former University of Hawaii record-setting quarterback Colt Brennan threw two second half touchdowns to lead the Redskins to the win. He completed nine of ten passes. The game also marked the debut of Redskins coach Jim Zorn.

IS FELONIOUS OWNER HALL OF FAME MATERIAL?

August 3, 2008

EDDIE DEBARTOLO

Eddie DeBartolo was one of the most successful owners in NFL history. As head of the San Francisco 49ers, his teams won five Super Bowls. DeBartolo was also the guy who hired Bill Walsh to coach the 49ers. Under his stewardship the 49ers drafted and kept players like Joe Montana and Jerry Rice.

Unfortunately, DeBartolo is also the only man convicted of a felony while owning an NFL franchise. In 1996,  DeBartolo bribed then Louisiana governor Edwin Edwards by paying him $400,000 in order to obtain a casino license. DeBartolo pleaded guilty to a single felony count and testified against Edwards who ended up going to jail. After the scandal DeBartolo was forced to sell the Niners to his sister.

Now, DeBartolo is reportedly being considered for induction in the NFL Hall of Fame. The only question is whether the NFL would induct a convicted felon into the Hall of Fame.

DISGRACED WRITER SAYS THERE’S A BILL BELICHICK SEX TAPE AND COREY DILLON IS A “MISERABLE PIECE OF S**T”

BILL BELICHICK AND ALLEGED TAPE PARTNER

This story was uncovered by The Big Lead:

Fired NFL writer Tom Casale is apparently bitter AND pissed. Blogging under the name “Tommy Rider,” Casale wrote a scathing piece on the New England Patriots-a team he covered while working for the Boston Herald. Casale lost his newspaper job after it was discovered that the story he wrote about New England taping a Rams Super Bowl walkthrough turned out to be untrue.

Apparently Casale is pretty sure he’s never going to get another NFL beat job for the rest of his life. He doesn’t just burn bridges, he napalms them. Casale drops a couple of bombshells on his blog. First, he says there’s a Bill Belichick sex tape in existence. Casale says the tape is of the Patriots coach and his ex-girlfriend Sharon Shenocca. According to Casale, she was married and commiting adultery with Belichick when the two made the sex tape.

Casale also writes former Patriots running back Corey Dillon “is about the most miserable piece of sh*t you would ever want to encounter.” Casale says he has “no doubt” that Dillon will end up in prison.

ARMY BANS CALEB CAMPBELL FROM PLAYING IN NFL

July 29, 2008

CALEB CAMPBELL

We all support the troops.

That doesn’t take away from the fact that the Army is a GOVERNMENT organization. As such, they are prone to making idiotic, incompetent, bureaucratic decisions.

This week the Army ordered recent West Point grad and Detroit Lions strong safety Caleb Campbell to give up his professional football career. Campbell was a 7th round draft pick by the Lions this year and was expected to make the team’s roster. Initially the Army was going to let Campbell play pro football and serve his Army commitment by acting as a recruiter in his spare time.

On the eve of Lions training camp, the Army told Campbell to instead report back to West Point. Campbell will spend the next two years as a graduate assistant for the Army football team. (The Army also pulled two West Point cadets out of the Pittsburgh Pirates farm system and ordered them to stop playing professional baseball.)

Only a screwed up government bureaucracy (like the Department of Defense) would turn down the FREE publicity of having somebody playing in the NFL. And, as Larry Brown Sports points out, it’s not like Campbell is going to serve as an officer in Afghanistan or Iraq. He’s coaching smalltime college football.

RANDY MOSS’ DAUGHTER IS HIGH SCHOOL STAR

July 29, 2008

FATHER FIGURE?

From AOL Fanhouse via the Louisville Courier-Journal:

New England Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss is 31-years-old. That’s old enough to have a 14-year-old daughter who’s one of the top high school basketball prospects in the country.

Sydney Moss is already 5’10” even though she’s only a high school freshman. She is predicted to be one of the top 100 players in the class of 2012. Sydney Moss was an AAU star this summer and has already received letters from Louisville, Kentucky and Purdue.

RUSH LIMBAUGH WANTS TO BUY THE RAMS

July 25, 2008

RUSH LIMBAUGH

From the St. Louis Business Journal via SPORTSbyBROOKS:

Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh says he is interested in buying the St. Louis Rams.

Despite recently signing a new radio deal worth hundreds of millions of dollars, Limbaugh is probably too cash-poor to attempt purchasing an NFL club.
