SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

Once again, the Lions have the opportunity to win a big game and fall flat on their faces. Same thing, year in and year out.

SportsFilter: The Sunday Huddle

I hope this makes Caldwell take a long, hard look at whether he wants to keep his $22M QB.

Who would they replace Stafford with? I am by no means a Stafford fan but he is the best the Lions can get at this point.

"A Guy Like Me"

It really seems like the NHL engaged in some shady business to keep Scott out of the All Star game.

Good for him for embracing it. This year will be the first year I watch the NHL star game in a long time.

TCU/Oregon certainly made up for the dud that was the New Years Six games!

SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle

I started going to the Lions Thanksgiving game three years ago. The Lions have won three straight on Thanksgiving (after losing nine straight). Coincidence or cosmic powers at work?

Note the multiple instances of "multiple" there.

I read it was requiring teams (and fantasy matchup outcomes) to rest on more than just a single game. For example, it seems like it would be illegal to draft a fantasy football team of only Lions players. I think daily fantasy sports are fine so long as you choose players involved in two different matchups.

The worst part about the Lions is the apathy that pervades the entire organization.
