Goodell has lost all credibility and has to go

This Goodell/Rice stuff is old news at this point, but I’m responding to a comment from the Trib, in which a reader responded to David Haugh’s article calling for Goodell to resign. phylladel Rank 291 Guess what, Haugh? I would venture a guess that the majority of football fans couldn’t care less about what the... Read more »

Are the McCaskeys to Blame for the Bears Loss to the Bills?

First off, there used to be 300+ comments after a Bears loss. The new comments section only has about 150, so I’d say it isn’t working. Anyways, many “sophisticated” commenters think they’ve tracked down the true root cause of the Bears loss on Sunday: Ken1954 Rank 305 “Wasn’t that garbage supposed to change this season?”...

Should the Bears Fire Mel Tucker in Preseason?

First off, as I figured, although the new-fangled comments section didn’t draw many comments at first, it only took a Bears loss to remedy that. A loss in preseason. Bears lose a preseason game and nearly 100 comments pour in across several stories and the calls to fire Mel Tucker have already started: cubbybear48 I... Read more »

Changes to the Tribune's site and comments format

If you haven’t been to the Chicago Tribune’s site yet, first, go check it out. They’re re-formatting in a “modern” way, using some of the more current technology and thinking in web design. There are others that can get into all that better than I can but there is also a change in how comments... Read more »

Blackhawks fans actually like Brad Richards

A happy and safe 4th of July to everyone! Just a quick one about the Blackhawks, possibly my favorite current team in Chicago due to their sustained excellence, soon to be continued when they lock up Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, which I’ll expand upon shortly. In the meantime, the ‘Hawks made a nice bargain... Read more »

Is Derrick Rose stealing from the Bulls?

This question is essentially being posed by Bulls “fans” who comment at the Tribune, which by the way changed from their Facebook-driven form a while back, though I’m not sure why.  It’s a little easier now for folks to hide behind pseudonyms but at least you can click on someone’s name and read all the...

Bears Do Something Right?

A pillar of why I started this blog is that comments are typically very mean-spirited and unjustified, the types of things people would never say out loud in a room full of people.  However, sometimes the comments are positive, and the Bears signing of Jared Allen was one of those times.  The Dan Wiederer article...

Latest Rose Injury Brings Out Worst in Bulls Fans

There’s nothing like a Derrick Rose injury to bring out the behind-the-keyboard tough guy out of everyone.  Thomas Tyler responded to KC Johnson’s story in the Tribune about Rose’s injury and got 40 likes: Thomas Tyler ·  Top Commenter · Works at Cubic Defense Applications Inc Since many athletes return after 4-5 weeks that should mean he will...

Are the Bears Getting Any Better?

Bears Apologists battle with Chicken Littles over 30 hours and 22 minutes, with 60 souls waging war with 104 comments across 30 posts.  The Chicken Littles outnumbered the apologists 22-19, with only 7 or so folks not ready to declare anything after 5 games, just lamenting the loss for various reasons. Some of the Chicken... Read more »

Bulls Deserve No Credit For Lucking Into Derrick Rose

I read this one a lot.  It’s the classic syndrome of minimizing the successes of our teams while not doing the same to other teams.  For some reason, a lot of folks want to diminish the Bulls roster and particularly the GarPax management team that has built one of the best teams in the NBA....

    I was raised in Naperville over 30 years ago and know my Chicago sports. My favorite teams are, in order, the Bears, White Sox, Blackhawks, Bulls and Cubs. Though I’m a Sox fan I do actually like and root for the Cubs and even sometimes go to their games. I have not lived in Chicago all my life, having lived in Los Angeles and New York among other places, which helps me understand that Chicago teams aren’t the only ones with problems, so you might find me less angry and more measured than the typical Chicago sports fan. This picture of me was taken last week.
