THE YEAR WAS 1975. Pittsburgh beat Dallas 21-17 in the Super Bowl. Bobby Knight's Indiana Hoosiers went undefeated to win the NCAA College Basketball title. The Golden State Warriors, led by Rick Barry, won the NBA Championship. Barry Switzer and Oklahoma claimed the #1 ranking in college football.

It was memorable year, but one that the bookmakers would rather forget, because Sports Reporter made its debut as a weekly forecast newspaper. Suddenly, their clients got smarter.

Soon, "Blue Sheet" Best Bets and Major Wagers were rocking the sporting world strongly enough to merit coverage on NBC and in Newsweek. Sports Reporter handicappers were celebrated as wily "foxes" and "gurus," entertaining and informing a new generation of sports bettors with insights on how to be king of the hill in football.

Today, the "ol' Blue Sheet" upholds that tradition, selling out on newsstands nationwide and making its way to many mailboxes -- at front doors and online.

But with www.sportsreporter.com, the mountain comes to you, so to speak. You get earlier delivery and more information from your Sports Reporter membership. That translates to more winners, received faster. Combine that quality service with FREE coverage of sports betting trends and angles, and you'll agree that Sports Reporter has no peer as a source of providing reliable, honest and accurate sports information.

It’s the NFL. The AFC South is a division. It has four teams in it. They play games. They’re all trying to win the division. Some day, one of them hopes to have a record good enough to qualify for a Wild Card. What’s the big deal? AFC South jokes are worse than saying 'oh, a baseball score!' when the score of a football game is 8-3 or 6-2 at any given juncture.

The Indianapolis Colts have taken a lot of grief for however they’ve handled the Andrew Luck situation after their star quarterback had shoulder surgery in the winter. Whatever. I’m sure Joe Sportswriter would have done the absolute correct thing, would have whipped out his manual on how to handle just such a situation, had he, and not some other guys and/or women, been in charge of making these decisions and communicating them for Indianapolis Colts.
