Are the Pittsburgh Steelers going to trade Antonio Brown, or will the drama and difficulty of the last six weeks or so dissipate? If they choose to trade him, would the Steelers get a first-round pick in return? Is Brown at a point where self-obsession is about to usurp his playing talent, or do...

With NFL free agency set to kick off in one month, there is a lot of speculation that the Buffalo Bills will move on from tight end Charles Clay. Fellow tight end Logan Thomas is a restricted free agent, and Jason Croom emerged as a fine pass catcher last season, but is not quite the blocker needed...

The month of January was a nice rebound for the Rochester Americans after and up-and-down month of December that saw the team falling out of the top spot in the North Division. In 10 games in January, the Amerks went 6-2-2 to improve their overall record to 26-13-3-1 and 56 points. That helped the...

The first weekend after the Super Bowl can be a rough one for some football fans. It's the first weekend without a game of any kind since early August. For those of you who normally go through football withdrawal, you don’t have to worry about that for another two and a half months. The new...

NFL free agency is set to kick off in one month. The Buffalo Bills clearly have a huge need at wide receiver, and could be looking to add multiple players to the position. Most people are down on this year's crop of free agent wideouts. It's not the most talented group to ever hit the market, but...

Super Bowl LIII turned into a nightmare scenario. The New England Patriots won, again, and it was one of the most boring Super Bowl games ever played. I do have an appreciation of outstanding defense and both defenses were dominant, but offense and points are entertaining, and this game probably...

The Rant I got what I asked for this season… a good start. I suppose I should have asked for something more specific though, because while that good start was fun, what has followed has completely undone it. Remember the good feelings from the top of the standings? Remember that most of us thought...

The Buffalo Sabres got embarrassed in the opening game of a seven-game homestand at KeyBank Center on Friday night. The Chicago Blackhawks came to town and put up seven goals on the Sabres to hand them a 7-3 loss in front of the hometown faithful. Despite the Sabres out-shooting the Blackhawks by a...

He’s down. That’s the two-word text I quickly sent off to my wife seconds after the collision. My thoughts are pretty straightforward and uncomplicated at first. C’mon, get up. C’mon, get up man. Please get up. Damn, he’s not even moving. Now, the officials have taken the net off the moorings...

Back on November 29th, the Buffalo Sabres were at the top of the National Hockey League, first place amongst all of the teams, nine points clear of the final playoff spot and at what would be the end of a 10-game winning streak. Fans were more focused on what team the Sabres could be facing in the...
