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.

This piece by @JohnReidy303 first ran in November, 2013


"Dan O’Dowd and Bill Geivett are so far beyond a train wreck of a front office, they’ve moved into “rolling corpse on fire in a desk chair about to fall over into a huge vat of feces” territory."

We almost had Brock starting the Chiefs game and while most of you are relieved, it would have been a good excuse to feature all of the song you can sing BROCK to. Here it is again.


"BROCK BROCK TILL YOU DROP! and other Brock related tunes..."

John is flanked by two lovely, fantasy football talking ladies on this show. There's some fantasy talk but really you need to listen till then end when guest @krissibex says something very funny.

Broncos Country is populated with some of the best fans known to sports. They possess big passion and even bigger hearts. And proving that, some fans have gotten together to help the less fortunate and celebrate the perfection of one Peyton F Manning.

If you don’t know @dipitydawg, he loves his Broncos and he’s organized a food drive with Broncos Superfan @tlcat06 where Bronco fans are asked to donate six cans of food for every touchdown Manning throws in the month of November. Take the pledge and start planning your trip to the store, because Manning will be tossing some TD’s this month and some folks can have food on the table come Thanksgiving.

For more information check out for the whole story and where you can donate.

This was from last week and you can listen and see whether we were way off or not. Either way, it was a great show with guest hosts @themondaymommy and @dsnadam. 

Adam reveals he's never seen Roadhouse.



In my effort to hold Danny Williams accountable for his horrid comments about domestic violence, I dragged Mile High Sport into the matter and since the comments were not made on air, it was unfair to fully include them in this mess. I mention that I don't want to be lumped in with this kind of thinking, and I essentially did that to people there who do not share those beliefs.

Mile High Sports of course doesn’t condone his comments and I should have created more separation from what Williams said and the opinion of the station. I’ve changed a few things in here to reflect that.

A simple solution to fighting in hockey

"And still, with the brutal nature of the act and cases of CTE popping up like mushrooms, fighting should be allowed in hockey. It’s part of the game and it makes cheap shot artists think twice about taking a run at any of the more skilled players. Banning it is out of the question and you’d likely see two-hand touch implemented in football before you’ll see fighting in hockey go away."

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?"
