The real NFL referees are coming back

It turns out the fiasco on Monday night was just what both sides needed to get a deal as the real NFL referees are coming back. It has been reported that an eight-year deal between the NFL and the NFL Referees' Association has been signed according to reports. It's morning again in America.

Now let's be honest, the replacement referees were doing their best, it was just clear that were in over their heads and it was getting to the point where coaches and players were taking advantage of them and the league was turning into a joke. Now the crisis is over and we can get back to football.

What MLB managers could get the ax after 2012?

It happens every season, managers get fired. Do I enjoy it? I mean, I hate to see people become unemployed, but i always enjoy the coaching carousel. If that is not a wishy-washy answer, I do not know what is.

Anyways, here are some managers that could get the ax in the offseason.

The AL Central is tied, who has the advantage down the stretch?

After Anibal Sanchez and the Detroit Tigers cranked out a 2-0 victory over the Kansas City Royals and the Chicago White Sox fell to the lowly Cleveland Indians 4-3, the AL Central is tied for the first time since September 3rd. It's the tightest race down the stretch, who has the edge?

2012 NFL Week 4 Picks

There are three clubs that are 3-0, and two of them will not surprise you. The Houston Texans were thought to be an elite club in the AFC and the Atlanta Falcons are not a surprising 3-0 club either. But how about them Arizona Cardinals? Who thought they would be 3-0 at this juncture after a tight victory over Seattle, a lucky escape in Foxborough and a beatdown of the Eagles at home? Not too many, I tell you.

Will those three make it 4-0? What else will happen this week? My week four picks, coming at you.

A disgraceful call gives the Seahawks a victory over the Packers

And if you thought that they needed the regular referees back, check out this play at the end of the Packers-Seahawks game in Seattle. Russell Wilson throws a Hail Mary to the end zone, and just watch.

You cannot claim joint possession on that play. Tim Jennings has established possession by intercepting the pass, Golden Tate barely has his hand on the ball. And yet they call that an interception. Even though the referee that had the best view originally called a interception and thus a touchback. What a disgraceful way to end the game. Pete Carroll should be feeling so damn lucky because Green Bay got robbed here.

2012 College Football Picks: Week 5

There are only two matchups of undefeated clubs in week 5 of the 2012 College Football season and both are in the Big XII. Not many will be surprised that both Baylor and West Virginia are undefeated, they should be lighting up scoreboards at noon, but how about both Texas Tech and Iowa State, both sitting at 4-0? How about that?

Who will win those two key conference matchups as well as every other game this week? Here are my college football predictions for week 5.

Watch the incredible Hail Mary Detroit touchdown that forced overtime

What a wild finish to regulation in Nashville. Shaun Hill, in for an injured Matthew Stafford, threw a touchdown pass to Calvin Johnson with 58 seconds left to get the Lions down seven. They then recover an onside kick and you have to see the Hail Mary prayer that got this game into overtime. Let's go to the videotape.

Is Florida State a national title contender?

The questions must be asked, is Florida State back? It may be a little early to answer in a positive manner with conviction but boy did they look really impressive against Clemson last night. Led by a brilliant performance by quarterback E.J. Manuel (380 passing yards, two touchdown tosses, 102 rushing yards), the Seminoles, who were down 28-14 early in the the third quarter, defeated the Tigers by a 49-37 final after they dominated the second half.

Now after the impressive victory at home last night against a darn good Clemson club, are the Seminoles national championship contenders?

Watch the Giants broadcasters dance "Gangnam Style"

Yeah, about that "Gangnam Style" crap, you know what it is, I shall explain no further as I am not a fan. I am a fan of San Francisco Giants radio broadcasters Jon Miller (remember him?) and Dave Flemming. Put two and two together and you get...this. Let's go to the videotape.

Did the Titans pull off Music City Miracle part 2?

The Music City Miracle is the most famous play in Titans history and certainly one of the most in NFL history (unless you are a Bills fan, but I digress). Well today against the Detroit Lions, they pulled off a similar play on a punt return. Did it work? Let's go to the videotape.
