Paul Daugherty @EnquirerDoc Published 11:00 AM EST Dec 18, 2018 FC Cincinnatians will break ground today, on a 26,000-seat stadium in the West End that’s supposed to open in March 2021. The biggest success story in Tristate sports keeps adding chapters. Good for them. But here’s the thing. Admittedly, it might be a small thing, but it’s Tuesday, it’s December and I have absolutely no interest in talking about who the Bengals coach will be next year, even though for the 2nd year in a row that’s all there is to talk about when it comes to the Bengals. Nice run-on mini-rant, PD. Thank you. Anyway. . . The story in the Enquirer says that at the moment, there are only 400 parking spaces near the stadium site: Hamilton County agreed to build a 1,000-space parking garage for the stadium, but the team and county commissioners are still squabbling over its location, what it will look … [Read more...] about TML: FC Cincinnati stadium, Reds, Bengals, Baker Mayfield, Browns, NFL

If you're like many who ignored the hype going into the NFL Draft and are just joining others suffering from draft fatigue, congratulations. You effectively skipped the semester without anyone noticing. There's still time to cram for the final exam and earn a better grade than kids with perfect attendance. Bills General Manager Brandon Beane had studied so much that his eyes were practically bleeding last week. During a pre-draft luncheon last week, he said he planned to conduct a practice test with staff members with hopes a mock draft would prepare them for anything when the first round began Thursday. "Until it gets here, all you can do is be anxious and do the work," Beane said. "I feel good about the work. If you do the work, generally it should fall into place." We'll see if the work pays off. General managers, scouts and other experts spend countless hours evaluating players while breaking down video, attending combines, traveling to private workouts, interviewing prospects, … [Read more...] about Bucky Gleason: 3 pieces of advice for Brandon Beane in his first draft as Bills’ GM
It's the first day back from spring break and, as undergraduates in shorts and sundresses loll on the lawn outside, three Tulane football players are seated around a U-shaped table in a small meeting room. With marker in hand, sports agent Martin Fischman stands before them at a whiteboard and poses a question:"Ribbon sells for 19 cents a yard. How much will you save by buying 30 yards for $5?"There was no such scene in "Jerry Maguire," the 1996 movie that shaped many sports fans' perceptions of NFL agents. But here, on the second floor of Tulane's student union, the 34-year-old Fischman, a real-life Jerry Maguire, doubles as teacher, coach and cheerleader in leading a 40-minute test-prep session for the Wonderlic exam, which three of his clients will take the next morning as part of Tulane's pro day for prospective NFL employers.Working from a stack of sample tests, Fischman gives examples of the types of math, vocabulary and reasoning questions that defensive tackle Sean Wilson and … [Read more...] about ‘Super agents’ rep 75 percent of NFL players.
