Displaced Fans To Get Super Bowl XLVI Ticket For Free

The 400 fans that were left without a seat at Super Bowl XLV will be “guests of the NFL” at Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis, according to commissioner Roger Goodell.

“Any time you put on an event of this magnitude, you have your challenges,” Goodell said in a statement. “We apologize to those fans that were impacted. We are going to work with them and we are going to do better in the future. We will certainly do a thorough review and get to the bottom of why it all occurred, but we take full responsibility for that as putting on this game. Read more

Phil Simms Sorry About Incident With Desmond Howard

Phil Simms joined Chris Russo on SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio on Monday and the CBS commentator discussed his altercation with Desmond Howard at the NFL Experience in Dallas.

Chris Russo: “Let me just ask you this on this whole thing with Desmond Howard. Everybody is paying attention to it. It sounds like he made a big deal about some sort of physical altercation; it was an argument but no chance of a physical altercation. What was going on with this thing on Saturday at this NFL Experience thing?”

Phil Simms: “Well, not really going to say anything about it except, um, you know, I don’t know what to say.”

Russo: “Are you annoyed at Howard making this public?”

Simms: “Well, of course I am. But it is what it is. It’s a great lesson learned and of course I’m not excusing myself. You know, I’ve got to know better. It’s a new Read more

Esquire Writer Says Jason Whitlock "Has No Soul"

You can add Esquire writer Chris Jones to the list of folks who have gone after controversial columnist Jason Whitlock.

Jones called out Whitlock in his blog on Monday, attacking his creditability as a writer and reporter:

“Sadly, among sportswriters especially, our most famous members are our loudest, not necessarily our best. Nobody knows Gary Smith to look at him. And so kids see a picture of Jason Whitlock with an Asian transvestite hooker on his lap in a club, and they think they have to be like Jason Whitlock to make it.

Well, here’s the stone-cold truth, kids: Jason Whitlock has no soul. Read more

AFC Championship Game Ratings Highest In 24 Years

UPDATE: The AFC Championship game between the Steelers and Jets was the most-watched ever, seen by an average of 54.850 million viewers. The previous record was 51.620 million viewers for San Diego vs. Cincinnati in 1982.

Last night’s AFC Championship Game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Jets earned an average overnight household rating of 31.3 and a 46 share, the highest numbers in 24 years.

Ratings were up 10 percent compared to last year’s early-game AFC Championship broadcast, when the Indianapolis Colts defeated the Jets in order to advance to the Super Bowl (28.4/50).

If you were to compare the two time slots, the ratings were up 32 percent when CBS carried Pittsburgh and Baltimore (23.8/37) in 2009.

NYP Turns Pats-Jets into Star Wars

We’re really not sure this makes any sense, but kudos to the New York Post graphics department regardless. We are so ready for some football.

DVR Alert: The Onion SportsDome Airs Tuesday

Is it Tuesday night yet?

And just in case you haven’t read about Comedy Central’s The Onion SportsDome, it has all the makings of an awesome spoof of ESPN’s SportsCenter.

There's Just No Avoiding Rex Ryan

To call this the Year of Rex Ryan might be a bit dramatic, but only just. And it’s only going to get worse:

This will happen because Ryan is a force of nature who cannot be contained by lap-band surgery, foot-fetish video tempests, or a roster of players with more faults than California. But it will also happen because without Michael Vick, the rest of the playoff field can’t even combine to counter the force of his personality. The walking cure for insomnia Bill Belichick? Lovie Smith? John (no, not Jim) Harbaugh? Whoever is coaching Green Bay from under that ski cap? Atlanta’s Mike Smith might get asked for ID at his own stadium. Even the sunny and bombastic Pete Carroll would be blown aside by a Rex Ryan sneeze.

The good news? We may be rid of him by Sunday. Not that he’ll be quiet after his New York Jets vanish into the Patriots’ maw.

The Year In Sports In Just 247 Seconds

Gawker.TV has a great video on their site of the best sports highlights of 2010 in 247 seconds.

Normally, I would post the video, but the Gawker folks aren’t believers of the sharing is caring philosophy.

Regardless, it’s worth a look.

This Won't Help the Yankees Win the Off-season War of Words

The New York Yankees lost out on Cliff Lee, thus spawning a host of “Yankees are finished” stories from outlets around the country. They needed a star pitcher. They went out and gotMark Prior.

Call us crazy, but signing a washed-up former flamethrower isn’t going to stem the river of hate that is the back page of the New York Post.

Think Twice Before Selling Those Rose Bowl Tickets

The days of college newspapers covering student council meetings and publishing the crime log are long gone.

The Badger Herald, an independent student newspaper at the University of Wisconsin, published the names of the 33 students that were selling their Rose Bowl tickets on Facebook Marketplace, hours after purchasing them.

The Badgers were allotted 5,800 student tickets by the Rose Bowl and they sold out in 20 minutes.

How dare students make extra money during the holidays by selling tickets to a game they clearly have no interest in attending.
