New Jags Uniforms: A Reasoned Discussion

By Spencer Bowen Yes, the Dolphins also unveiled new uniforms. Their changes are more accurately described as “tweaks,” but at least we got this snazzy website out of it. Overall, Miami looks better but still not amazing. B+. Now, on to the main course. Once again, I’ll be using “good,” “stupid,” or “push.” Helmet Literally…

New Titans Uniforms: A Reasoned Discussion

By Spencer Bowen To be clear, I’m a Niners fan. My no. 2 team is the Pittsburgh Steelers (my mom’s side is from Pittsburgh), although I really hate rooting for Ben Roethlisberger. And for no discernible reason, I deeply loved Eddie George, Steve McNair, and the Tennessee Titans when I was growing up. And my…

On Reuben Foster & Colin Kaepernick

By Spencer Bowen How can an organization support a person charged with felony domestic violence but also repeatedly reject a person exercising nonviolent protest? As of right now, the San Francisco 49ers have refused to disassociate themselves from potential 11 year prison resident Reuben Foster. My high school English teacher would take this opportunity to…

The Bay: Fit For A King

By: Tyler Chuck While his announcement is probably just a move to attempt to create dissent in the Bay, if LeBron is serious about joining the Warriors, they should absolutely listen.  After three finals runs against the Dubs, LeBron has become a villain as the best player on Warriors Finals opponent.  But he’s a good…

I am Grud

By Spencer Bowen As a fan of entertainment, I am ecstatic about the Raiders’ new head coach. As not a big fan of the Raiders’ decision abandon Oakland in favor of The Land of 120 Degrees and Terrible Decisions, I’m also ecstatic. If I were a Raiders fan? I’d be a bit peeved. Let me…

Fantasy Football Roundtable

By Tyler Chuck and Spencer Bowen It’s fantasy football playoff season, a time of joy and wonder and getting wrecked by Antonio Brown. Two of Antland’s most devoted fantasy owners put their heads together to answer the most pressing questions on our own minds. What’s the worst trade you’ve ever made? Spencer: I once traded…

Fantasy Football Archetypes

By Spencer Bowen Every league is different. But every league is also pretty much the same. Here’s a rundown of some tried and true fantasy teams varieties that you’ve surely encountered this season.   The Add / Drop King An owner with absolutely zero loyalty to their players. This person is committed to one principle…

Rant Wheel #2

By Spencer Bowen Stanford in general Am I writing this because Cal lost to Stanford yet again in The Big Game? Yes. Am I bitter? Yes. Is this a casual sports blog named in a self-deprecating fashion so I can write about Cal’s mediocre-but-lovable football team whenever I please? Yes. Stanford is the worst. When…

Rant Wheel #1

By Spencer Bowen Inspired by the unstoppable Crooked Media conglomerate, I’ve decided that a few tasteful rage outbursts might help me get through these troubled times. Welcome to the first (and maybe last?) Antland Rant Wheel. Tom Brady Tom Brady is 40 freaking years old and remains the best NFL quarterback without a broken clavicle….

No Pack No

By Derek Nelson Earlier today, the pride of Cal Berkeley (GRAHH) noted that the Jaguars could be the solution to Niner fans’ woes. I am inclined to agree; teal is a great color, their owner looks like Ron Jeremy with a better mustache, and Blake Bortles is kinda sorta okay at football (see the sabermetrics…

Go… Jags?

By Spencer Bowen The Jacksonville Jaguars, quarterbacked by a man who will likely found a moderately successful chicken and biscuit chain someday, can do no wrong. Once you get over how weird it feels to say “the Jags can do no wrong,” consider this: They’ve… made great draft picks recently? With the exception of the…

A Modest Proposal: The NL West

By Spencer Bowen NL West The Colorado Rockies‘ overall look has aged nicely. They’ve got some handsome home whites (above), some boring but not bad aways, and a purple alternate that is very purple but, hey, it’s a team color. Overall it’s a very nice uni- OH NO. The Rockies should – no, must – eliminate…
