The ever-evolving bullying scandal with Richie Incognito/Jonathan Martin is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to locker room culture in today’s NFL. And with NFL draft hopeful, Michael Sam recently admitting he was gay, it creates another challenge for Commissioner Goodell on the direction to take the culture of his league.

The AFC East is the Patriots to lose. Again.

The once mighty AFC East has really fallen off.  Even the perennial Patriots aren’t quite the team they used to be, and I’m guessing only the division winner gets to the postseason this year.

In order to keep holding Superbowls at the Dolphins’ Sun Life Stadium, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell stated the stadium needed significant renovations to the tune of $400 million. But when legislation failed in the state of Florida to secure that cool $400M from the taxpayers, CEO of the Dolphins Mike Dee stated “We have no intention of investing more”. So that should be the...
