About

My name is Mike Chiari and I'm a featured columnist for Bleacher Report's Breaking News Team. I'm a 25-year-old graduate of Buffalo State College from Buffalo, NY, and I've been part of BR's BNT since 2011.

I specialize in wrestling and hockey, although I have written about essentially every sport imaginable during my time at Bleacher Report.

I have also served as co-host of wrestling podcast Ring Rust Radio since 2012. I have had the honor of interviewing many of the biggest names in wrestling as part of RRR, including "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Chris Jericho, Kurt Angle, Bruno Sammartino, Jim Ross, Paul Heyman and many more.

    A NCAA FOOTBALL PLAYOFF for NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP A Simple Guide by J D
    FACT: There are always 13 Saturdays in the 92 days of September thru November
    STEP ONE: Require all teams to finish their 12 GAMES by the END of November. There would be time for ONE OPEN DATE . Or TWO using the LAST SATURDAY in AUGUST. STEP TWO: Have an NCAA selection committee pick the TOP 32 Football Teams: FOUR Divisions would be set up: East, South, Midwest, West. Four Number One Seeds would be chosen in each Division and progressively on down: Number Two through Eight. SEED Number One would play Number Eight, Number Two plays Number Seven and so on.
    STEP THREE: SIXTEEN GAMES would be played ( 32 Chosen Teams) on the First Saturday in December. The SWEET SIXTEEN winners would play on the second Saturday in December. STEP FOUR: The Elite Eight Winners are in the HIGHEST FOUR BOWLS called CHAMPIONSHIP BOWLS and would be played on New Years Day. STEP FIVE: The FOUR QUARTER FINAL TEAMS play their TWO GAMES on January 8 or later. STEP SIX : THE FINALS: 2 WINNERS would play a week later near January 17 for the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. Conclusion: Only FOUR TEAMS would NEED to PLAY past the Holiday Weekend of January the 1st. And the rest of the Teams could go back to their studies and Classes.
    Also: The 30 plus BOWLS are kept . The LOSERS in the FIRST or SECOND Round can PLAY again in any BOWLS but the FOUR CHAMPIONSHIP BOWLS and win and rejoin the Top Twenty five.

    Any chance I can buy a high resolution version of the Peyton Manning, Dan Marino, Brett Farve photographic montage? I seriously want a print of that to frame and put on my wall. Very glorious photo art.

    In reference to you HW article.....From Charlie Ward (Heisman Winner) Was on the Micheal Kay show here in New York yesterday. They asked him questions about JW5 and he told them that he is a good kid, who needs mature but he believes he will. They also asked if FSU was growing tired of him and he said he didn't know. He told them about JW5 being a 3.2 student and a good kid that listens to him when he offers advice. Micheal kay was blown away by CW's account of JW5 and even said it was good to know that he is a bright kid and that there was more to him than his mishaps and not just things you hear on the surface.

    How about being objective and honest in your reporting by showing the good and bad sides of a person? How about posting something from somebody who is close to Jameis and knows more than Walker on Jameis. Are you as brain dead as all the other media and only like to paint a negative picture? Wait...you don't need to answer because it's obvious in your article.

    In the AP story, it says a source played a voicemail from April 9 that came from a phone number at the NFL offices, in which a female voice says the tape was received, expresses thanks and says: "You're right. It's terrible." The source could not tell AP for certain if anyone at the NFL offices had watched the video, and he had no further contact with any other NFL employees. The AP report said the source was unauthorized to release the video but "shared it unsolicited, because they wanted the NFL to have it before deciding on Rice's punishment." I said all along that GOODELL is guilty and deserves more that anybody hie is the reason for all of this in the first place and to think he asked RAY RICE to fall on the sword for him! BAN THE NFL!
