"NBA Rookie Report: 1st Edition"
By: Ben Silmser Twenty games into the 2011-2012 NBA season, I think it is time to take a look at which rookies are making a statement early on. At Randall St. Sports Wire, we take a different approach to our rankings. With this ranking, I chose to evaluate each player from the General Manager’s chair… Having watched twenty plus games in the NBA season, who would I have chosen in last June’s...

Pro Bowl Highlights →
As a fan I want to give a thank you to all of the players involved in yesterdays festivities. I want to thank mostly the AFC defence for playing harder than I have seen a D play in the pro bowl. As a Dolphins fan I want to give a special shout out to Brandon Marshall, who earned pro bowl MVP honours, for his 6 catch 176 yard performance, and a record setting 4 touchdowns. Respect to Brandon for...

Well this is just worthy of a post. King James at it again…What a beast.
NHL's Ten Best at The All Star Break
First off I just want to congratulate all of the athletes who were selected to represent their teams this weekend in Ottawa. With about 50 games completed of 82 in the NHL regular season, it seems appropriate to publish a power poll for the top ten teams in hockey thus far. This list is comprised of teams from both conferences, and are put in order in terms of who has performed the very best...
"Credit Where Credit is Due"
The Toronto Maple Leafs are heading into the all-star break with some momentum. After last nights OT win over the New York Islanders, the Buds are 7-4 in the month of January. A record that most hockey fans would deem, “Ok.” However there are more to those wins than meets the eye. The Leafs did not finish the month with straight victories as they would have hoped, but they built...
Its about that time we talk some Jimmer Fredette. Prior to the draft there were loads of questions surrounding whether or not Fredette had what it took to be a primary ball handler for an NBA team. During the NBA workouts Jimmer selected what teams to work out for, based upon what his strengths were as a player. He was called “smart”, a player with a high basketball IQ, and an...

"Precision & Power"
This NFL season has been full of surprises and let downs. However that being said the AFC Championship game could have been predicted by most. The two teams featured in Sunday’s 3:00 pm EST game could not be a more accurate depiction of the two best the American Football Conference has to offer. The New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens are tough fantastic football teams. On...
"King vs Kobe"
Last night the LA Lakers marched into American Airlines arena in Miami with the intent of beating the Heat. They were coming off a tough fought defensive win(73-70) at home against the defending world champion Dallas Mavericks. In the most simple explanation, they did not beat the Heat. Aside from the first five to ten minutes of the ball game, they were outplayed offensively all night. Even...
Should Tiger Really Have a Say ? →
Hank Haney was a long time coach of Tiger Woods, and a member of Tigers so called inner circle. He is scheduled to publish a book around the same time as the Masters tournament at Augusta. Haney describes the book as such ….”I get asked all the time about Tiger, what it was like to work with him,” Haney said in a telephone interview. “I felt like I had a front row seat to...
"A Beast is Awake in the AL East"
In recent memory there have always been some sure things in the baseball off-season. A BIG free agent signing by a middle market team, several articles published about the young talent to look forward to in the upcoming season, a coaching change or two…or three. More articles about the heros of the post season from the year just past, the Yankees spending hundreds of millions, … oh and...

"Golden Opportunities Present Themselves to the...
The Toronto Maple Leafs (22-17-5—>49 points) have come along way from their basement flirting trends, that have been set over the last four years. Finally there is a buzz in Toronto about the Blue & White, that isn’t negative, and riddled with “Eggo tossing fools”. The Leafs are currently ninth in the Eastern Conference, and are out of that coveted 8th and final...
"The Saints and 49ers"
New Orleans Saints(13-3) vs San Francisco 49ers (13-3). The Saints are coming off a very strong offensive performance(as per usual) against the Lions. When the game at the Benz Superdome was over, many of us watching got the idea, “Yep, the Saints are damn good!!!.” We also came to the conclusion that you cant be a one dimensional football team to win in the playoffs. Perfect...
"Do The Lakes Got What It Takes"
To all NBA fans, It was such a relief to finally have the first few weeks of the NBA season underway. With all of the negotiations and turmoil that took place in the off-season, it was a joy to see basketball on December 25th. With about 10-12 games completed in the season, we believed a Power Poll was necessary. How we came up with this list, is by viewing/analyzing the top teams in the NBA,...
