With not enough resources to have Ralph Wilson Stadium ready for go-time on Sunday at 1:00pm, the NFL has decided to move the AFC East game against the Jets away from Buffalo.
Players have even resorted to trekking to the stadium on foot for practice this week. Bills wide receiver Chris Hogan tweeted out Friday morning, “Still snowed in! Walking to the stadium.”
The game between the Jets and the Bills will be played at Ford Field in Detroit, where weather can not possibly be a factor, seeing as it is a totally enclosed stadium.

Dan Duquette, who is the executive vice president of baseball operations for the Orioles, was given the award on Monday after his leadership in the front office helped the O’s to their best season in 17 years.
Duquette won the award back in 1992 as well, when he was the general manager for the Montreal Expos.
Big signings and roster manipulation carried out by Duquette were crucial to the O’s success this season. Not only did Duquette manage to sign big names like Nelson Cruz and Andrew Miller, he was also able to find players that were disregarded by other teams, players he knew had loads of potential.

The real work starts next week as the Hounds kick off the regular season with a game on the road against Texas Tech.

Once in a generation, a player comes along and defines a great player and great leader for his or her sport, a player whom fans will remember and respect for years to come. For this generation, that player is Derek Jeter.
After 20 incredible seasons in pinstripes for the Yankees, the time has come for Jeter to bid a fond farewell to the fans of New York and the fans of baseball around the world, and boy did he do it in style!
In front of a sold-out crowd at Yankee Stadium, Jeter stepped up to the plate in a tie ball game in the bottom of the 9th with a runner on second and a chance to win the game for the Yanks.

There are no more excuses the NFL can provide, no more apologies that can be made, and no more field time that can be pictured. Action needs to be taken against Ray Rice by the Baltimore Ravens and the NFL immediately.
There was already enough controversy over the fact that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Ravens’ Running Back Ray Rice a total of 2 games for domestic violence charges filed against Rice. The mistake made by Goodell in terms of his decision was magnified by the fact that he has been cracking down on players smoking marijuana, and taking that more seriously than a domestic violence case.
Now there can be no more questions as to whether or not Rice hit his then girlfriend, now wife, Janay Palmer. Thanks to TMZ Sports, the security video from within the elevator where the crime happened has now surfaced, and it is appalling.
