Rams going with white horns on helmets for 2017 season is a mistake

The Los Angeles Rams have the right idea. They’re just approaching it wrong.

The team announced that they will be eliminating gold from their white pants and will introduce those new pants in a fan vote. Much like last season, they will go with the white jersey and white pants look at home for all of the 2017 season. In addition to this change, the Rams announced that they are eliminating the gold horns and replacing it with white horns. Fans can choose which face mask will be used.

With these changes, the Rams are evoking memories of their white and blue look from their first years in Los Angeles. I am for this change and I cannot wait for them to full adopt the design. However, due to NFL rules, teams cannot make any major changes to their jerseys unless five years have passed.

The JaVale McGee and Shaq beef is stupid

When Shaq started clowning JaVale McGee for his lowlights, I was OK with it. After all, if McGee did something dumb, I was fine with Shaq pointing it out. But last night’s beef was too much.

McGee did not do anything to warrant a huge mock trailer from Shaq. There was no reason to attack McGee, who has been playing way better this year.

Am I OK with the Warriors reaching out to Turner? I’m on the fence. One, it shouldn’t be their problem. But secondly, this is a bully mentality and it’s not right.

The Twitter beef between the two has escalated and I am sure this won’t end unless Turner or the NBA punishes either or both men.

This is all childish.

Jaguars’ weekly Facebook Live press conferences are bring out the sad in the fans

This is so sad. The team does not look good. The team is losing games. Yet every week the Jaguars decide that they want to post the Monday press conference on Facebook Live. Head coach Gus Bradley has not lived up to expectations and as with Facebook Live, fans can react with emojis.

It’s sad. It’s anger. It’s comments with irrational thoughts.

The idea of Facebook Live press conferences is great. But when the team is 2-8 and looking awful, this is what you get. If they keep losing, expect more of this every Monday.

The NFL Twitter account has gone “nuts”

Nobody on the social media team realized what they were doing.

Vine was the greatest thing for sports highlights

There have been many times that I was not watching a certain game but through all the updates on my Twitter feed, something amazing just happened. What happened? I wasn’t near a TV or had no option to change the channel.

Within a minute, the highlight would be on Twitter. No nonsense, no unnecessary stuff. Vine gave me the six second highlight I needed. It looped so I could watching over and over again without having to click on anything extra.

With Vine’s death coming, I am saddened about the loss of one of the greatest things to happen to sports and the Internet. I don’t know what the next tool would be but we had something special with sports Vines. Farewell sports Vine. You were perfect for our short attention spans and our desire for immediate gratification.

Oakland A’s Instagram doesn’t like Reggie Jackson

Reggie Jackson spent a lot of good years of his Hall of Fame career in Oakland. But in his retirement, Jackson has been an ambassador for the New York Yankees and always supports them. Even whenever he comes to Oakland, he wear his Yankees gear as he remains part of the club. It’s no surprise he would but the A’s throwing shade in his direction like this was something I didn’t expect to see. It’s not like the A’s don’t acknowledge Jackson. But it’s just surprising¬†that they would make that comment.
