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.



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."

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."
