    Luck at the Indy 500

    Whilst I'm not into car racing, it was great to see an Aussie take the checkered flag--well done Will Power, Australia's first ever Indy 500 winner.

    Legalized Sports Gambling Is Coming

    And suddenly, just as I suggested that the potential for corruption is at the level just below the top, we have a report coming out today involving a test match between Australia and Sri Lanka in 2016 (Test matches are the highest level games). Supposedly, a large syndicate 'bribed' ground staff to 'doctor' the wicket, ensuring their bets regarding the match result would be successful. Put simply, once you allow sports gambling, you do open up the potential for corruption--wherever there is money to be made, someone will come up with a means of beating the system. The reality is that gambling on sport will happen--the sporting organisations need to be able to exercise some control over the gambling--if the gambling organisations have the control, trouble will follow Disclaimer: I was a huge gambler, which led to me becoming bankrupt some years ago. I don't gamble anymore (other than investing on the Stock Market), and I am not a supporter of gambling at all.

    Legalized Sports Gambling Is Coming

    Here in Australia, nearly every sport is sponsored to some extent by a gambling organisation, as well as specific clubs. TV broadcasts see us constantly bombarded by gambling advertising in any breaks. While in cricket there have been serious issues from gambling--it's usually at the level below the top, and with an unlimited number of options to bet on, the opportunities for corruption are endless. One former player told of how he was confronted by a bloke who lost $50k because of him--the guy had bet that he would concede less than a certain number of runs in an over, and he conceded 1 more than that number--the player's response was, "who would be that stupid to bet that much on a sporting event?"

    Marlon Mack Underwent Shoulder Surgery on Torn Labrum

    If he needs a good physio, the young lady in my profile picture is brilliant and I fully recommend her.

    Well if that's the worst rant against Ballard that ever gets written, he won't be losing any sleep

    Baker Mayfield

    Just can't understand why Browns didn't draft Darnold

    Thoughts on Ballard's vision

    Last season our D-line guys seemed to run out of puff as the game went on. This year we will have the luxury of being able to rotate, thus maintaining fresh guys out on the field. This way, we can maintain the level of havoc we cause for opposing O-line and QB.
  10. With Andrew Luck at QB they will get better

    We got Nelson at 6

    If you want sexy, you draft a cheerleader. If you want to win a football game you draft the pro-bowler who will protect your franchise QB
  12. Hernandez, Landry and Chubb

    Mike Mayock has us trading back with Bills

    I would think the Bills would try to trade with the Browns for pick #4

    ESPN having fun with different trade scenarios

    I wonder if there is a possibility that the Jets trade pick #3 for Foles
