Bloomer Girls; Women Baseball Pioneers; America, its women, and its game: Disapproving scolds. Sexist condescension. Odd theories about the effect of exercise on reproductive organs. Though baseball began as a gender-neutral sport, girls and women of the nineteenth century faced many obstacles on their way to the diamond. Yet all-female nines took the field everywhere.

Author and fixing expert, Brian Tuohy will breakdown the big financial hit that bettors took over the weekend.  Here's a tease...

Packers/Cowboys and Chiefs/Steelers games: "In officiating I think there is a difference between the correct call and the right call, and I think the correct call were made in both instances – I think Cook was inbound on the pass that Rogers threw him at the end of the Packers and Cowboys game. And I think the correct call was made on the hold by the Chief’s lineman against the Steelers on the two point conversion."

He continues..."But, the question I have to ask, is that necessarily the right call in the NFL minds, because I think a lot of things done on the field are done as business decisions – those two calls I think are correct and maybe they got them right. But, if you look at like the Packers success...they beat the Giants pretty easily and they had to endure a couple of comebacks by the Cowboys to win in that game… they haven’t had a holding call against their offensive linemen in either game. Now, is that correct or is that the right call and right decisions that the  officials are making? ...I find that suspect that a team can go two playoffs game without their offensive line getting a holding call against them.
