Another exciting week of football in the books, and another great slate of games in the week ahead! Everyone's attention is squarely focused on the field, and...wait, what? What's that you say? Oh. Oh my. That's quite awkward. Oh. Well, then in that case, let us put our foot in the ground and cut back with Sports Illustrated's Robert Klemko, who joins us for a discussion of the latest unfortunates off the field, including the Adrian Peterson/Ray Rice situations. We also chat with Robert about his experience in Ferguson, Missouri and do, in fact, even talk a little football. Join Ryan Burns, Sen Sogah and Robert Klemko for all this and more on the Football Sickness Podcast...GET YOUR HELMET ON!!!
Quite an opening week in (and, as it turns out, for) the NFL. A full slate of exciting and surprising games was almost immediately overshadowed by off-the-field drama. We'll deal with all of it, of course, but our focus is on the game. Plenty of NFL and college football to discuss. Good times had by all, despite the necessaries. It's a soft landing, but you'll still want to GET YOUR HELMET ON!!!
Long-time friend of the Sickness and recent Super Bowl Champion Celebrator Brian Nemhauser, better known as HawkBlogger (@hawkblogger on twitter), joins us in our pre-season finale.

GET YOUR HELMET ON!!!!

Just a quick bounce around the league before our season previews get started in earnest. The fellas have a few laughs, there's a Burns/Manning dance-off, Sen declares a Manziel Embargo until further notice, and much more. Episode 165 of the Football Sickness Podcast: GET YOUR HELMET ON!!!
