NFL's awareness campaign is a scam?

1

According to the League, 100% of the proceeds from the specialty auction go to the American Cancer Society, but the total percentage of purchases of officially licensed gear that actually goes to FINDING A CURE is actually kind of pathetic — 5%. If you want to look at this cynically, in a way, the on-field wearin' o' the pink serves as an ad to direct consumers to purchase pink fan items.

New Excerpt from Pearlman's Payton biography

Deadspin has a new excerpt of the Payton biography. Centered around his attitude after SB XX. I found it interesting thought some of you might too.

Packers S Nick Collins out for season

15

Collins was carried off the field on a stretcher after sustaining a frightening neck injury in the fourth quarter of Green Bay's victory at Carolina on Sunday. Collins spent the night in the hospital and returned to Green Bay on Monday afternoon to meet with the team's medical staff. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Collins was present for a team meeting Monday, wearing a neck brace but otherwise in good spirits. Editors Note: Stay Classy Chicago

Braun faceplants on almost HR

From sure-fire inside-the-park HR to failed triple... Also: Reggie Miller sighting for added randomness.

Poll: Are you buying the Bears?

Alright, Bears. You've got me. I was wrong heading into the season. I'm now going to offically believe you're good.    The defense? Pretty good. Wish they'd been able to keep the game from getting...

Why the NFL should be investigating Favre's alleged misconduct

I was kinda "meh" on the whole thing (because seriously a male athlete being a jerk is definitely not news to me) but this article is a really well stated reason for WHY this case matters. Worth the read.

Learning from McKinley's Death

6

Beautiful and moving article from Paige. Worth the read. In loving memory of Kenny McKinley, no longer ask "Why?" — ask "What can we do to save thousands of others in Colorado?"

Boston 1B Youkilis Out for Season

He'd been having a really good year. Out with season-ending surgery on torn muscle in right thumb.

Son of Coach Dennis Green arrested

3

Jeremy Green possessed more than 50 images or depictions of child pornography and admitted that he is a cocaine user, according to police and prosecutors. Just... if you do go to this link? Don't read the comments, they are everything I hate about sports fandom and the internet. Pretty disturbing case. Was wondering what he wasn't doing the Football Today podcast anymore.

OT: Dorothy Kamenshek dies at 84; women's baseball league star

5

Former New York Yankee first baseman Wally Pipp called Dorothy "Dottie" Kamenshek "the fanciest-fielding first baseman I've ever seen, man or woman." She was the best player in the Women's League during WWII and the main character in "A League of Their Own" was named after her. May she rest in peace and not be forgotten.
