NFL Analyses Fans Biometrics to Figure Out what They Like

And chief amongst these considerations is the manner in which the game of football is viewed. You wouldn’t expect the NFL to care about the way you watch their games but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Continue Reading

Week 11: Texas A&M falls. Clemson, Alabama, Michigan Rise

Week 11: Texas A&M falls. Clemson, Alabama, Michigan Rise

The AP Polls are an interesting concept. Think about the fact that Nebraska lost to Ohio State on Saturday Evening. Yet, when the polls came out, the Buckeyes hadn’t moved (Number 6). What does that tell you? It definitely says more than the college football championship lines.

Of course, one might wonder whether any of this even really matters. Because of their performance, or lack thereof, against Ohio state, Nebraska fell 12 spots in the college football rankings. Continue Reading

Can One Expect NFL Game in the China

Can One Expect NFL Game in the China

It is hard to believe that NFL game will be performed in China. But this is going to happen. It will be for the first time when the U. S. sports league will be played in the China. The game might not get much attention from the people. More importantly, the players will not be that comfortable to play a regular season in the China. As the result, you might not expect much from the NFL betting lines.

Now the teams are preparing for the game. They are focusing more on the work instead of discussing the playing environment. They are planning how they will come back from the China after the game and will prepare themselves for the next trip that might be more challenging. It will be difficult to play a more competitive game after coming back from China. Mark Waller, the vice president of the NFL, told in an interview, their focus is not more on the game in China.

NFL’S Revised Injury Report Replaces Probable with Questionable

NFL’S Revised Injury Report Replaces Probable with Questionable

The NFL cannot win this year. Every step they have taken to make notable changes in the game has attracted repercussions of one form or another, many times distracting from conversations about NFL betting lines and odds, instead raising questions about the competence of those in charge.

There haven’t been nearly as many voices opposing the league’s decision to revise the injury report procedures, though; the revision has obviously reduced the number of players listed through the first two weeks of the season.

However, the number of listed players who have been classified as questionable has grown substantially. The game status report, which was released two days before kickoff, constituted 272 players who had been listed with injuries.

The 33 percent drop from 2015 is very notable, a direct result of the NFL’s decision to remove the probable’ category. The problem here is that 163 of those listed players (a 73 percent increase from the first two weeks of the 2015 season) have been designated as questionable.

In other words, these are 163 players who the NFL are uncertain will play in a game. You can see how this is skewing the figures and raising misconceptions when game data is analyzed. More than half of all the players (Three-Fourths to be exact) that have been designated as questionable’ have actually played in a game.

Week 2 was especially prevalent with so-called questionable players (79 percent); this is as opposed to 53 percent of questionable players appearing in a game within the same period in 2015.

Despite confusing a few analysts, the conundrum created here isn’t all bad, or rather this isn’t as problematic an issue as some people have suggested, primarily because it has removed the uncertainty.

Teams are more likely to declare players out; as such, people do not need to make guesses about the number of players who have been injured in any given week.

Along with revising injury report procedures, the league also introduced a doubtful’ category. People in this category are deemed as being unlikely’ to be in uniform. This category hasn’t been utilized as frequently.

Only seven percent of players have been listed as doubtful’ on the game status report. Not everyone pays attention to the injury report, primarily because they think it is a mundane and largely unnecessary obligation.

However, opposing teams and even fans spend lengthy portions of time pouring over such reports, this along with gamblers and participants in fantasy leagues. For such people, injury reports provide useful insight into the availability of players for specific games.

The NFL was driven to make changes to reporting procedures because the probable’ category was receiving very little use. The majority of probable’ players always ended up playing games they were expected to seat out.

The effectiveness of the NFL’s revised procedures cannot be measured extensively so early in the season, though; the first two games offer too small a sample size. If a coach is competitive enough, he will find ways of reducing the insight provided into his team.

So, it is difficult to determine how effective the new procedures will be in the long run, not when coaches are so determined to keep the minutiea of their rosters private.

Former NFL Player Smoked Marijuana before Games

Former NFL Player Smoked Marijuana before Games

The use of marijuana by NFL players as an aid to deal with the pain they go through has been in the news for the past couple of years as players and former players are asking the league to review it drug policy. A few days ago, Eben Britton, who played in the NFL for six season, recently said in an interview that he was at his best during games when he was high.

In the interview, Britton said the NFL games he played in when he was stoned were the best games of his career. Britton, who played for the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Chicago Bears during his career, said that Cannabis cements his surroundings. He added that he has heard people say they are pretty much useless when they are stoned, but the drug has the opposite effect on him.

Britton also said in the interview that he believes anywhere from 50 to 75 percent of NFL players use marijuana. Despite the high estimate of players using, not too many get busted for the use of the drug because the NFL doesn’t test for it as much as they do for performance enhancing drugs.

According to reports, the NFL tests for recreational drugs like marijuana once a season, and after the tests are over, players go back to using it. The league probably isn’t as strict on the testing because it isn’t a performance enhancer, but those who have been caught have been dealt with by the league.

Former Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams retired from the league after multiple failed tests, Cleveland’s Josh Gordon was suspended for a year for multiple failed tests, and Britton was also suspended for the entire 2015 season for multiple failed tests.

In recent years, the attitude towards the use of marijuana has been changing. Multiple states have made the use of marijuana legal, which has spurred some former NFL players to petition the league to allow its use as an alternative to the painkillers they get from team medical staff. The players argue that marijuana is a safer alternative and isn’t as addictive as the painkillers.

Former Baltimore Ravens player Eugene Monroe pledged $80,000 to study the effect of marijuana use by NFL players to try to reduce their use of addictive opioids and anti-inflammatory drugs they receive from teams to help them deal with their pain.

At the time, Monroe said there was enough evidence that suggest that marijuana use is safer than opioids and other drugs NFL players take for their pain. It has also been suggested that marijuana can help with concussions, making it something the NFL seriously has to look into.

In addition to the medical benefits, Britton said marijuana has other positive social uses. According to the former player, marijuana helped him socialize with teammates. Britton said that after practice, a couple of players will meet up at one of the players’ homes and smoke marijuana. During those sessions, the players didn’t talk about football, they just hung out and had a good time getting to know each other better.

Despite the potential benefits of using marijuana for pain, it doesn’t look like the NFL will change its stance anytime soon.

Postponed More Than Ready for Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe

Postponed More Than Ready for Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe

With the prestigious Group 1 Prix de l’Arc de Triopmhe at Chantilly now just a matter of weeks away, trainer Roger Varian believes that former Juddmonte International Winner Postponed is on target for yet another victory this time around. The four-year-old is undoubtedly the favourite in the horse racing tips among bookmakers, with a win at Knavesmire in August only further demonstrating his credentials for the meeting just outside Paris. Such a win confirmed Postponed as the best middle-distance turf horse in the world, with further high profile victories undoubtedly lying ahead. The victory also increased Posponed’s career earnings to more than £4,360,000, closing the gap on the all-time record for a British-trained horse.

However, despite being offered odds of 7/2 on in the horse racing tips at bookmakers Coral, Varian’s prized asset is unlikely to have things all his own way, with stiff competition coming in the shape of Harzand, Minding, and Order of St George among others. Up next for Harzand is the Qipco Irish Champion Stakes this weekend in a meeting that should suit the dual Derby winner. Trainer Dermot Weld has withdrawn Harzand from Sunday’s Prix Niel, which had been seen as a good warm-up option for October’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. Despite this, the three-year-old remains just 5/1 with Coral for victory at Chantilly.

Elsewhere, Christophe Lemaire declared himself extremely happy after partnering Japan’s latest Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe challenger Makahiki in a gallop over 1m1f of Chantilly’s straight Piste des Reservoirs a few weeks ago. Makahiki is at 8/1 in the horse racing tips at Coral having arrived in France a matter of weeks ago, and having won four of his five races, including the Japanese Derby, the Yasuo Tomomichi trained horse is certainly one to look out for.

Favourite for November’s Meboure Cup, Order of St George, who has established himself as one of the best in Europe Europe with an emphatic success at Royal Ascot this year, is part of a possible team of seven for record-breaking trainer Aidan O’Brien. O’Brien is seeking to win the prize for the first time in his career, with Order of St George currently 10/1 on with Coral to win the race held at Flemington on November 1st.
