Recently, the British Journal of Sports Medicine published a "Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport," which sought to define concussions, lay out diagnostic procedures, differentiate between types of concussion victim (teenage athletes vs. adult athletes, for example), and determine how best to manage the risk…
Last week, Drew suggested someone compile a record book for fantasy football. Here's a start: I looked at NFL player stats since the AFL-NFL merger (1970) and came up with some retroactive awards.
No fantasy scoring system is more valid than any other, but I used the following, from Pro Football Reference's fantasy…
Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith (and others) get their yellow jackets tonight. Travesty. What'd either of them ever accomplish?
Articulately-challenged running back Emmitt Smith is frustrated with his former team, and he's blaming Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and Wade Phillips for the Lombardi trophy drought in Big D, urging them to yell at more people.
While ESPN de-bloats, they wouldn't be the WWL unless they also added a big name. The biggest one so far: Matt Millen, Ex-Lions GM/Architect of Destruction, will join their Monday Night Countdown on-site team.
The Dallas Morning News has broken the news as gently as possible, but it still stings: after two glorious years of broadcasting gold, Emmitt Smith is out at ESPN.
Guess who kept the coin from the final coin flip at Texas Stadium? Hint: He's a former Cowboy and he likes to collect shiny things. [Dallas Morning News]
We're not sure if Emmitt Smith is going to lose any face time on ESPN now that Cris Carter is hanging around ... but we have our suspicions. Heck, they didn't even let Emmitt be a part of the draft coverage.
This has been a few places already, including With Leather, Ladies ... and Pro Football Talk, but god, it's too funny not to put on our site.
We never thought we would ever be saying this, but after watching almost a full season of Emmitt Smith on ESPN ... we kind of miss Michael Irvin. We know. We're so ashamed.
Well, now that legal expert Emmitt Smith has weighed in on the Michael Vick situation — saying the feds are just leaning on Vick to get "to everyone else," though we're trying to figure out who's more involved that the guy who slammed a dog into the ground until he died, we can wrap the whole matter up, yes?…
Considering that FOX has barely showed any college football this year and therefore has no established halftime "in the studio" team, we were curious how they would handle last night, which after all was the supposed biggest game of the year. We admire their conclusion: They just picked two retired players who were…
And thankfully, I won't have to watch him feel the heat with somebody. With somebody who (somebody who) loves him. Sigh.
It appears that American can finally release its collective tension: "Dancing With The Stars" has finally crowned a winner. And it's none other than ... Emmitt Smith! Yes, the former Cowboys (and Buzzsaw) running back emerged victorious last night, barely edging out Mario Lopez, and any contest in which you barely…
Last night, Emmitt Smith continued his inevitable decline into post-athlete career depression by "shining" on "Dancing With The Stars," impressing the judges with his ... aw, jeez, we can't even type this without feeling bad about ourselves and everything about sports.
You thought that finishing his career flat on the turf of Sun Devil Stadium was the most embarassing final image of all-time rushing champ Emmitt Smith one could come up with.
We didn't actually watch it, and we don't have video or anything, but apparently the Miss Universe contest was on NBC last night. The only real interesting thing about beauty contests — other than, "Will one of them fall down? Please?" — is the celebrity judges, and last night's battle had some doozies. You had Sean…
