I never really liked sports until I had a religious conversion when the Broncos lost to the 49ers in that one Super Bowl. Now I'm obsessed with all aspects of the Denver pro sports world. Oh yeah, hate college football. And I used to write a column for AV Club Denver but now am a full time contributor to this here site.

Fantasy Trade Controversy: You Make the Call

The ever crafty Colin Daniels put out several trade offers after he heard the news that Julio Jones might be out for the year in hopes that he'd get one unlucky soul to take him up on his offer and get something back for a player about to go on IR. And in four out of five leagues, he was refused.

But in one league, someone took him up on that offer and traded him San Francisco TE Vernon Davis for the now hurt Julio Jones.

The party who traded for Julio claims it was a mistake and we are now asking you dear readers of South Stands Denver to decide. Please listen to the voice mail and let us know if the trade should stand or he should get Vernon Davis back.

Drop me a line @johnreidydenver

"But the main example of the regime change has to be the addition of Ice Girls. Ice Girls, are the present state of NHL entertainment, to which Lacroix would have said “aucun moyen putain” (no fucking way) to."

"I’ve asked this before, but the questions begs its own piece: How desperate are you to wear Broncos gear that you’d wear such an unpopular jersey? How little does someone know of the team that they would wear something like that?"

I was into #TradeVonMiller before it was cool

"So why, after a confusing, erroneous report of him getting nailed for an outstanding ticket in California, does it appeal now? Apparently his simple (and numerous) traffic infractions will not impact his current six game suspension. And because of that, “Von Miller” and “trade” shouldn’t be uttered by anyone, anywhere."

"Folks, are we really that desperate to get people to click on articles that we’d go that route? Apparently so."

"The story went like this: very famous, well known, Denver sports columnist gets wind of impending trade, writes about it knowing full well it’s going down, but makes it seem like it’s just a good suggestion. Trade goes through and big time sports columnist looks like a goddamned svengali."

Reidy's official Broncos season predictions

"Nothing like Jacksonville coming to town to break you out of a slump and the Broncos will break out big time against the woeful Jags. It will be a pounding to the tune of 38-10. WIN"

"You take a shortened version of the person’s last name, add a “y” or a “er” and presto, instant hockey nickname. But I think Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog deserves a better moniker since he was recently signed to a seven year, $39 million extension."

"Sports and specifically Colorado sports teams are rife with underperforming squads which baffles and frustrates fans and ownership alike. But what causes a group of talented athletes to perform under its expectations?"

South Stands Denver Fancast, Show 156

A rare treat as we have Mile High Sports’ Zach Fogg (@zachfoggsports) AKA Honey Bear in the concrete bunker who used to work nights and is now available, for the first time to join the South Stands Denver Fancast.

We get Rockies and baseball heavy right off the bat....hold on....it’s riveting. Zach explains why baseball nerds are insufferable and while Colin makes the case for the Monforts, Zach explains why they’re awful.

Colin's son’s baseball championship and how grown men shouldn’t go watch those games by themselves without a kid in the game is discussed. We broach some fantasy talk and how the shit talkers can suck John’s ass. We speak about some metal.

We make Zach play GM of the Rockies and it’s gripping. If you care even one bit about the Rockies, you will want to hear this. Raiders or Juggalo almost throws our panel and Tweep of the Week. A great show and pleasure to finally have Honey Bear on the show. Here’s to many more.
