LAMM AT LARGE: Passing on UFC

LAMM AT LARGE: Passing on UFC

By: David Lamm I’m not a UFC fan. Truthfully, I’d never watched a match — only highlights — until last Saturday night. Maybe I watched because the matches were held in Jacksonville. More likely, I watched because it was the only live televised sports event in the world. Only so many “Matlocks” and Netflix one…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Jaguars are NFL’s weakest link

By: David Lamm From the outside looking in it’s obvious why the Jaguars are generally viewed as the NFL’s weakness link. Set aside your bias as Jaguar fans and look no deeper into the team than the quarterback room. Your starter is an overachieving free spirit who’s shorter and slower than you’d like and has…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: The most competitive player ever?

By: David Lamm “He’s the most competitive¬†player I’ve ever seen.” “He’ll do anything not to lose.” Who is he? Take your pick. We’ve heard 100s of athletics covering all sports described that way.

LAMM AT LARGE: Potential collapse of college sports?

By: David Lamm Smart businessman have learned not to be too depended on one customer. In other words, don’t put all of your eggs in one basket.

LAMM AT LARGE: Jaguars aren’t only draft losers

By: David Lamm I can’t make Jaguars fans feel good about their team’s drafts, but I can make you feel a smidge better. You aren’t alone in your despair. The Jaguars recently declined to pick up a 5th-year option on Leonard Fournette, the 4th pick in 2017. Three other top 5 picks that year had…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Two ideas to improve college sports

By: David Lamm The folks who run the NCAA have always been followers, not leaders. Seldom have they made changes until their hands were forced by public opinion and the law-makers. That’s the case again with college athletes being able to get paid for their names and likeness. That should happen as soon as 2022…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Doubting Belichick, not me

By: David Lamm We can all agree on two things: Bill Belichick is NOT stupid and he IS one of the greatest NFL coaches ever. So, why is everybody you read or hear saying he’s wacko for thinking Jarrett Stidham will be successful as the Patriots’ starting quarterback this season? That appears to be the…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Cooped up

LAMM AT LARGE: Cooped up

By: David Lamm I watched more of the draft this year than in any year I can remember. That made me one of 55 million people who tuned in. That’s right, 55 million of us stared at our televisions to watch this sporting event totally void of action. Obviously we wanted to know who was…Continue Reading »
