    The Jets Get Rid of Darrelle Revis in Order to Continue Their 40-Year Rebuilding Process

    With the Knicks and Nets winning their first playoff games and the Yankees and Mets both over .500, it would seem that New York is on the verge of a happiness explosion. But I'm bummed out. The best football player in New York, maybe the best defensive player in the league and perhaps the best secon ... More >>

    Tom Couglin on the Giants' Loss to the Eagles: "Why?"

    According to ESPN last night, Tom Coughlin's first word to his team after the Giants' baffling and humiliating 17-10 loss to the Eagles on Sunday Night Football was, "Why?" I translate that as "Man, you'd think somebody could do something about this, don't you?" The reasons why can be seen in the ... More >>

    Luis Castillo Gets Scapegoated by Sandy Alderson: Who's Next?

    ​If the Mets' handling of Luis Castillo is an indication of things to come, the so-called rebuilding of the team is going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors and scapegoats.

    Jets Chances Over Patriots? Not Very Promising

    ​If you look at it on paper, the Jets have a pretty decent chance on Sunday against the Patriots. New England averages 364 yards a game on offense to the Jets 351, a negligible difference. In fact, not so big a difference as their defenses: the Pats allowed 366 yards a game on defense, the Je ... More >>

    Tiger Woods Inspires Messy Ejaculations from the Press

    ​Maybe I'm the wrong person to comment on Tiger Woods. As a writer I have zero interest in the private lives of athletes and celebrities. They are either boring or tawdry. As a fan, I do have a little interest in scandal for entertainment value. I think Tiger should apologize to his wife, but ... More >>

    Jockbeat: Allen Barra Sizes Up the Yankees and Phillies

    ​First off, we'd like to thank the New York tabloids for getting the Phillies all worked up. In particular, we'd like to thank the New York Post for putting a photo shop image of Shane Victorino in a cheerleader's skirt on yesterday's front page, bearing the caption "Only in the city of Brothe ...

    Jockbeat: Why The Yankees Should Beat the Angels

    ​As rivalries go, the Yankees and Angels have been overrated by the media. Since 2002, the first time they met in the playoffs, the teams have played 54 times. The Angels have won 31 of those games, the Yankees 23; the Angels have outscored the Yankees by just 12 runs. Since the Angels have b ... More >>

    Super Sunday! Bread and circuses and suicide bombings!
