A former teacher, high school defensive coordinator, and former Colorado resident I now reside in Indiana. I currently work in law enforcement.

During the regular season I do the game preps at MHR, with a focus on the systems run by each team. During the reloading season I write the Football University articles, which include basic lessons on football terminology, systems, plays, positions, etc (Xs and Os).

I look at my job in three main parts:

1. To assist Guru with anything he needs in keeping the site up,
2. Helping members with any questions they have about the game of football (no question is too simple; I'm here to help),
3. Encouraging members to participate and to have a great time.

I pride myself on trying to respond to all questions from our members. I'm here for ya!

Hobbies include classical music, rugby, sailing, and exotic cooking (and of course the Denver Broncos!)

Defensive lineman great and actor Merlin Olsen has passed away. Many folks remember Olsen for his roles in "Little House on the Prarie", "Father Murphy", and "Aaron's Way". Others remember him for his dominance during the 1960s. This gentle giant was a class act, a powerful player, and was loved well beyond the football community. MHR's prayers go out to Merlin and his family.

Supreme Court Transcript (American Needle v NFL)

21

As promised, MHR University provides you with a link to the oral arguments before the Supreme Court on the American Needle v NFL case. Much more fireworks than I expected in the transcript. I'm now thinking the case may go back to a lower court with instructions, rather than having an outright ruling made either way. I still think (as I did before) that any decision will be narrow and incremental, rather than be a sweeping decision.
