He’s Got To Go!

Monday, September 8th, 2014 by Justin Thomas

rice-480x320There 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.

Head Coach Steve Nichols

Head Coach Steve Nichols

 

As classes started up for the Loyola students on Tuesday, September 2, students, alumni and fans alike turned their attention to Ridley Athletic Complex for the start of a new soccer season. The Men’s team kicked off their season at home against Howard University.

The Greyhounds sported a bit of a new look on the sidelines for this game as new Head Coach, Steve Nichols, made his debut with the team.

Nichols watched his team start off the year strong with a goal in the 22nd minute from Senior Connor Thompson, bringing the Hounds to life for the 2014 season.

Of course, Mother Nature wanted to make her presence known and start off the season with a typical Baltimore welcome, namely thunderstorms with sheets of pouring rain.

NFL Division Breakdown

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013 by Justin Thomas

NFL-Season-Opening-ScheduleThis NFL season is shaping up to be one of those “down-to-the-wire” style seasons. Basically, if you were to ask any expert as to who will win each division they would answer with something to the tune of “who knows!”

With the hope of putting some things into perspective for the second half of the NFL season, I figured I’d give you my division-by-division breakdown. Keep in mind these are all just opinions and speculation. Take none of it to heart! (more…)

Where Do You Draw The Line?

Friday, November 8th, 2013 by Justin Thomas

UnknownIn the past week, the situation regarding Jonathan Martin, Richie Incognito, and the Miami Dolphins organization has gone from bad to…just plain weird.

The report came out earlier this week that Dolphins’ offensive lineman, Richie Incognito, had been harassing teammate Jonathan Martin with racist, overtly offensive, and threatening comments. The voicemail read as follows:

“Hey, wassup, you half (racial slur) piece of (expletive). I saw you on Twitter, you been training 10 weeks. I’ll (expletive) in your (expletive) mouth. I’m gonna slap your (expletive) mouth, I’m gonna slap your real mother across the face (laughter). (Expletive) you, you’re still a rookie. I’ll kill you.”
