Net Worth in the NFL

With the football season underway let’s take a step back and look at some statistics and see if it reveals some overlooked insights. Let’s take a look at the NFL teams with the highest net worth and then juxtapose that against their records. Then we’ll take a look at the highest paid players and coaches. […]

We Went There…Is Atlanta Really a Sports Cesspool? An SBM Investigation

“Atlanta is a sport cesspool.” – @JeffJSays I mean, that’s easy to say. Atlanta sports fans get a bad rap, and without really knowing that’s an easy statement to accept on its face. But is it true? That’s what I set to find out last weekend. I had the good fortune of going to Atlanta […]

Letter To My Girlfriend About Football

I first posted this in September of 2009. Since then, it’s been syndicated, duplicated, sampled and responded to by several other sites on the Internet. With the start of the football season upon us, it’s only right that we post this again for all of you to enjoy. Babe, You know that I appreciate you. […]

4 Easy & Completely Reasonable Things RG3 Should Do to Reclaim His Career

Look, I love Robert Griffin III. I really hope he figures it out and becomes a productive quarterback once again. So I’m not here to criticize his play (which has been bad since the end of his rookie season), or figure out what other teams should try to get him (been done to death). I’m […]

No But Seriously, I Think I’m Picking the Dallas Cowboys for the Super Bowl :-/

I teased this last week, but it’s officially time to come clean: I think the Dallas Cowboys will do well this season. Like…really well. *dons flame suit* As a Detroit Lions fan, I’m well aware of how stupid it is to put your faith in a team that will surely let you down. When the […]

Three and a Half Stories to Look Forward to This NFL Season

With the annual Hall of Fame game in the books, the 2015 NFL season has officially started(!!). Time to shift from “I wish football was back” tweets to “(fill in the blank) looked really good in training camp!” tweets. Soon we’ll get tweets about actual, you know, games. But until then, we’ll look ahead to […]

Introducing the Calvin Candie Scale of Racism in Sports!

Took a week off from SBM during the slow sports month of July and everyone decided to go all 12 Years a Slave! In case you missed it, Hulk Hogan, Colin Cowherd, and Charles Haley (of all people) decided to collectively step in it over racial topics the past few days. Each made a fool […]

Time to Settle This: Serena Williams is the GOAT feat. Shamira Ibrahim

This past weekend, Serena Williams won Wimbledon for the sixth time after (relatively) easily beating Garbine Muguruza. Unhappy simply enjoying the moment, the question came back to mind… Is Serena the greatest ever? Thing is, I’ve never really set about answering this question. So without years of research to rely on, I did the next […]

With Mo Williams on Board, Who Else Should GM LeBron James Bring to Cleveland?

Big news out of the NBA this week as free agency kicked off. Most importantly, I was right…again! Also, late Monday night Mo Williams agreed to re-join LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. This is hilarious for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is the avalanche of tweets you all dug up […]

Two Games Into the NBA Finals…Will the Cavs or Warriors Win it All?

We’re eight quarters and two overtimes into a surprisingly (for me anyway) competitive NBA Finals, and I’m at a crossroads. Hardly anything has gone how I predicted. The Warriors can’t shoot. The Cavs took a game in Oakland. Stephen Curry is airballing game winners. LeBron James is carrying the Cavs (which I predicted) and it’s […]
