Michael Powell follows the sad, dirty trail of big time high school and college ball: For some prominent college coaches, the disheartening math seems to go as follows: win wherever and however you can, and hope that not all of your prior triumphs end up getting vacated.

New York Times to begin charging for online access: On March 28th, the NY Times will institute a pay wall and begin charging frequent readers of its content for online access via digital subscriptions. If they are successful and other content providers follow suit, the economic landscape of online content will change. How will this affect SpoFi and the linking to online content? When more online content sources have pay walls, SpoFi members may be able to continue following links to content without having to pay for the access, but will this coming transition end up imposing restrictions and/or an economic burden on SpoFi itself?

SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

At this hour, the jaws of Boston area sports radio are clamped tight to the leg of the poor officiating in yesterday's Chiefs - Pats game. Not liable to let go anytime soon. They have slowly named each member of the officiating crew more than once. Making sure to note that one of them is CBS rules analyst Gene Steratore's brother.

Home addresses, phone numbers and DOB's seem likely to follow.

All hail the Niners - Saints shootout taking place on Sugar Bowl Drive in New Orleans.

In a heart warming additional note for Patriots fans, the Niners have a QB who can throw a 75 yard bomb and they traded for a veteran receiver who can catch and finish it.

That receiver can also throw 35 yard touchdown passes. (With a tighter spiral than Edelman throws).

If Ovi maintains his current pace and passes Gretsky, by this time next year, Russian influence in Washington will be drastically reduced from its current levels.

For the skilled or opportunistic thief, noon to 2pm is a favored time to strike, whether the home or the car. Folks having lunch, kids not coming home from school yet, etc.
Good on him for getting the guy down. Hope it was vigorous, wish there was video.

In that dreamlike early am stage before being fully awake, I envisioned Ron Rivera coaching the Giants. Or if not them, then maybe the Bears.

But it looks like Norv did get promoted to some sort of almost HC position in NC.

Please tell me that the Panthers didn't act now because they wanted to move quickly to snap up Jay Gruden before anyone else got him.

The Nick Foles saga has to be one of the most intriguing in league history.

The Eagles can't win without him.

The Jags can't win with him.

Memo to Marrone: just designate him as your backup and watch the magic unfold.

Those crafty Bengals. As soon as Tua gets badly injured and may not be worth tanking for, they start winning ballgames.

This put a jolt into Washington and the Dolphins, both of whom promptly went out and won their games.

Mighty painful to watch the dissolution of Adam Vinatieri, who stayed too long at the dance.

Kicker Nick Folk: cut twice in one week.

First by surgeons performing an emergency appendectomy.

Then by Bill Belichick (before Folk could even get put back on solids after the surgery).

Kraftworld has gone from rub and tug to tuck and rub.
