The waiting game is over. Tony Romo is retiring and pivoting to broadcasting, as first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Todd Archer. The blockbuster news comes one day after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones put the message out that teams were free to communicate with or work out Romo in hopes of facilitating a trade. No team took the bait. The winding down of Romo’s career was accelerated when he broke his back in a preseason game against Seattle last season. Rookie Dak Prescott proved a worthy starter in his own right, and the future became the present in an…

“Good times, no tan lines. Let the sea set you free” – @tony2coats A post shared by Kristin Cavallari (@kristincavallari) on Mar 28, 2017 at 8:55am PDT Jay Cutler was back in the news today after his wife, Kristin Cavallari, posted a naked picture of the free agent quarterback. Now that we’ve seen a new side of Cutler, let’s backtrack for an update on his day job. Cutler, who has long toggled between exposing his assets on the field and being the butt of many jokes, has possibly reached rock bottom. Chicago couldn’t bare another year of Cutler, releasing…

On Monday afternoon, two hours after NFL owners voted to allow the Oakland Raiders to become the Las Vegas Raiders, super fan Dr. Death was reborn as his human alter-ego, Ray Perez of West Sacramento. A diehard season ticket holder, regular force in the raucous Black Hole since 2009, and staple at city council meetings focused on keeping the Raiders in Oakland, Perez tearfully denounced his support for the fleeing franchise during a live video. Q https://t.co/vp5PuC8Kgt — Dr.Death (@26DrDeath) March 27, 2017 “This isn’t just a football team leaving us, this is a culture and identity,” Perez said. “In…

Almost four years ago, rising prodigal quarterback Colin Kaepernick politely attempted to clear up some confusion about his nickname. PSA: Just for clarity it’s Kap not Kaep — Colin Kaepernick (@Kaepernick7) September 7, 2013 Fast forward to the present and except for the 49ers’ fanbase and the Bay Area media, most in the football zeitgeist, including wildly respected journalists, still refer to the free agent as “Kaep.” While hardly an egregious gaffe‑-after all Kaep is the far more logical nickname–it is a microcosm of his reality. When it comes to Kaepernick, facts don’t really matter. From a racist column about…

For sports fans, internet connoisseurs, or basically anyone with a pulse, it’s nearly impossible to navigate the world wide interwebs without running into a protruding feature on the WAGS (wives and girlfriends) of professional athletes. Here at TFG we try to be an equal opportunity promoter of significant others. So we couldn’t help but wonder, what about the HABs? You know, the Husbands and Boyfriends. They deserve some cyber exploitation too, right? And if our female audience can dine on a nice cut of meat, well that’s not such a bad thing either. Last week, in our inaugural edition, we…

The NFL’s first official day of free agency was a whirlwind of activity and emotion. Two hours before teams could sign payers with expiring contracts many of us were making bad drinking jokes about the non-stop cornucopia of news – “Feels like we’re drinking but where’s the alcohol?” (Hardy har har.) By nightfall a certain team overflowing with toxicity instantly retired the bad attempts at alcohol humor. Overall it was the most compelling first day of free agency in eons. Let’s examine the notable winners and losers Winners Sashi Brown, Browns general manager and Paul DePodesta, Browns chief strategy officer:.…

No beating around the bush here: For the better part of last season TFG sadly laid dormant. The overwhelming culprit is that I was knee deep in a time consuming job as the NFL editor at SI.com and as a result, TFG’s heartbeat had slowed. But there is much unfinished business. The allure of the established TFG community and the possibility of growth have consistently been magnetic. Thus, I am beyond thrilled to return to TFG on a full-time basis as we aim to once again turn the brand into a relevant part of the NFL landscape. Our vision is…

For sports fans, internet connoisseurs, or basically anyone with a pulse, it’s nearly impossible to navigate the world wide interwebs without running into a protruding feature on the WAGS (wives and girlfriends) of professional athletes. Enen the most respectful bastions of journalism will use these ladies’ loose affiliation with a newsworthy athlete to post a juicy picture, or entire salacious gallery, of their attractive arm candy. Here at TFG we try to be an equal opportunity promoter of significant others. So we couldn’t help but wonder, what about the HABs? You know, the Husbands and Boyfriends. They deserve some cyber…
