SportsFilter: The Saturday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

Not content with being "The Thinkingman's Club", Everton now want to do the thinking for you.

I'm really enjoying Greg Bedard's new NFL column for SI. He used to cover the Pats for the Globe and he provides a lot of tactical analysis of the game.

Stoke City's Robert Huth was knocked unconscious today but carried on playing. I get that they were out of substitutes, but you'd think Stoke could bore the world to death with 10 players for the last few minutes.

Today's game of "Scene from the America's Cup or dystopian future Waterworld"?

Winner of Alabama-A&M: Alabama. Loser of Alabama-A&M: The idea that SEC defenses are inherently awesome.

Richard Knight, you'll never walk alone! Oh wait, he supports the Toffees, so, fair play mate.

Cliff Ronning is better than Jeremy Roenick...

Yerfatma, that just goes to prove you can still play Stoke's tactics without a functioning neo-cortex.

The US beat Mexico again tonight, as Floyd Mayweather comfortably out-pointed Saul Alvarez.

It was a split decision for no reason I can determine, as one judge scored it 114-114... the same judge who called the Bradley-Pacquiao fight for Bradley, it turns out.

The other judges scored it 116-111 and 117-111, Mayweather, which was a lot closer to what I saw.
