Now let’s see the teams who drafted well and set themselves up for the future vs the teams who just have no idea what they’re doing. Arizona Cardinals Grade: B+ They landed LB... Read more →


Commentary: Harden is the NBA MVP

Austin Darrow | CNBNewsnet The debate is over for the NBA MVP. Realistically it should be LeBron James, but that’s a different story, and the media and NBA have already made their minds up about the two candidates being James Harden of the Rockets and Russell Westbrook of the Thunder. Now Harden and Westbrook faced each other in the first... Read more →


Commentary: A New Approach to the NBA Draft

Austin Darrow I listened to The Herd today and Colin Cowherd came up with an interesting idea on spicing up the NBA draft. His idea was to allow these college players choose where they want to go play, as opposed to getting picked by the team. It’s interesting, it’s like a free agency for college athletes. Lonzo Ball said he... Read more →


COMMENTARY: The End of Tony Romo

Austin Darrow Tony Romo has announced his retirement and immediately signs with CBS as TV analyst. From what I’ve read, he isn’t coming back. Romo realized that Dallas doesn’t need him anymore and they have Dak Prescott as their guy for the years to come. For the people thinking he’s coming back, don’t get your hopes up. Just look at...

LeBron James is the Exception to Resting

(Photo credit: Wikipedia) COMMENTARY: Austin Darrow There is a resting problem in the NBA, but LeBron James is an exception in the NBA. He can take days off because he is getting ready for the playoffs.... Read more →


COMMENTARY: World Baseball Classic Has Changed Forever

Austin Darrow The World Baseball Classic is here to stay, and the product will continue to grow after a shocking USA victory. Let’s face it, no one saw Team USA in the semifinals, and yet they’re now champions. We didn’t really need them to win the WBC, to prove that players and fans are starting to care a little more,...

Problems With the World Baseball Classic

Austin Darrow The World Baseball Classic will conclude tonight and for the first time ever, Team USA is in the finals. How many people care? Not many. The WBC is a sporting event that is magical for baseball fans, but to the rest of the sports world, the country is just half in. Meaning if the U.S. wins it, than... Read more →


COMMENTARY: Eagles Making Big Moves

Primary Logo''' 1996–present (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Austin Darrow | CNBNewsnet The Philadelphia Eagles have been the noisemakers of this offseason so far. They made a huge move to get Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith. Chance Warmack is a solid placeholder on that struggling offensive line and Nick Foles returns. The Eagles weren’t supposed to be this active in free agency.... Read more →


COMMENTARY: Watson is the Right Choice

Austin Darrow The NFL Scouting Combine kicked off today and this is where NFL teams main priority should be, not the free agent market. Teams who are looking at the QB position should be eyeing up one player and one player only; Deshaun Watson. Not DeShone Kizer or Mitch Trubisky. Watson is the best QB out of the trio being...

Super Bowls Aren't Won in Free Agency

Austin Darrow Big stars are hitting the NFL free agency market and jaws are dropping. There’s a good chance that if you’re a fan of a team who is in dire need of that player, than you’re probably screaming for them to sign him and blow all the money they have on one player. This is mainly about the Steelers... Read more →


MLB Wants to Make Baseballs Tackier

Austin Darrow I read an article earlier about the MLB thinking of implementing another idea into the league. They’re getting Rawlings to make tackier baseballs. This would be huge for pitchers because they would no longer have to doctor up a baseball, to get a good grip. I’m a pitcher myself, and those baseballs fresh out the box are usually... Read more →


Commentary: Trade Deadline Frenzy

Austin Darrow NBA trade deadline frenzy is over until the offseason. Nerlens Noel was the only meaningful name to be traded, meanwhile, the Celtics had their opportunity to give the Cavs a run for their money and passed it up. Brian Colangelo is slowly killing Hinkie’s process. Jahlil Okafor was supposed to be traded away and Embiid and Noel were... Read more →

COMMENTARY: Early MLB Predictions

Austin Darrow Several teams have reported to Spring Training which means baseball is here and April is right around the corner. Baseball fans are eyeing up a season to top last years. Even though the MLB is trying to implement tons of rules, the games will still be fun to watch. Here’s my early frontrunners for the 2017 season. NL... Read more →


COMMENTARY: The MLB Has a Pace Problem, Not a Time Problem

Austin Darrow Let’s get one thing straight, the MLB doesn’t have a time problem, it has a pace problem. So when I see all these potential rule changes, it just makes me rip my hair out. The MLB’s games last on average 3:08 and it’s not even the longest out of the major sports. NFL and college football games last... Read more →


COMMENTARY: The NFL and MLB Hall of Fame Voting System is Flawed

Austin Darrow I’ve wanted to argue this for a while now, and the Terrell Owens snub of the Pro Football Hall of Fame has triggered me into this. The NFL and MLB Hall of Fame’s voting system are flawed. The NFL HoF voting committee consists of media members and two Hall of Famers. The MLB HoF committee consists of all... Read more →


COMMENTARY: Super Bowl Analysis

Austin Darrow | CNBNewsnet The Pats-Falcons was a ridiculous end to a Super Bowl. In the last 12 months we witnessed a buzzer-beater in the NCAA championship, two 3-1 leads blown and a college football game goes down to the final second. Cavs win in the final minute of Game 7 Cubs-Indians go 10 innings in Game 7 Nova hits... Read more →
