I'm a 36 year old writer that enjoys the ability to share my opinion with the rest of the world! I have an tremendous dislike for the candy coated reporting that we see too often. Censorship is Un-American and so is "safe" reporting. Writing should create emotion or at least, the reader should agree strongly or dis-agree and want to write or post their viewpoint. I hope you enjoy my words as I write on things I'm passionate about.

    John: You gave me advice about CJ Spiller, Shonn Greene, Joonathan Stewart etc... I benched both Spiller and Stewart and started Greene and Mcfadden. In the WR/RB slot, I put in Santonio Holmes, which seemed to be a good decision at the time. I recently picked up Brandon Jacobs and Tim Hightower. I ended up losing, but mainly because of different issues. I started Aaron Rodgers instead of Brady. I couldnt watch the Pats game, but I followed it on game cast. I got madder and madder at myself after every play. The one time I start Rodgers, Brady goes crazy and plays Madden on the Dolphins. I also have two defenses, and I did not start the Jets. So your advice was good. Thank you, and I learned never to under estimate Brady against the Dolphins

    Thanks John! I can't start him in my 12-team (my top 3 is Andre, Percy, and Julio in that league) but I decided to roll with him in 16-team. In that one I got him, Percy, and just need to decide between Ford (@ Denver) and Evans (v. Pitt). Any advice?

    This past Monday, I had one of the greatest opportunities of my writing career.

    An interview with NFL Hall of Fame quarterback, Fran Tarkenton.

    He talked about everything from Brett Favre, to Peyton Manning, to business.

    If you have a free moment, I'd love to get your thoughts on the interview...

    Understand your opinion about what the Olympics have become, but you never offered a solution. Just another sportswriter who didn't quite make it as an athlete perhaps?

    You do realize how the NFL scheduling works right? You do know that it is not based on previous years record? I just wanted to inform you of this so you don't look foolish when writting articles..

    Hey John—Max Tcheyan here, a Bleacher Report Community Coordinator.

    I've been spending time on our Packers page and read a couple of your old articles. Really on-point do good work.

    Given that you haven't written in a while, I thought I'd check in and see if you're interested in picking up your coverage again. What do you say?

    If not, it would be great if you could give me some feedback on why you decided to stop writing and what we could have done to better serve you. If you wouldn't mind, please shoot me a line at with any thoughts.

    Thanks so much,
