Bernstein: Pacers Now In Bulls’ Way, Too

What’s too bad for the Bulls is that somebody in their own division appears closer to calling “next.”

Bernstein: Starlin Castro Is Getting Worse

Alarm bells are going off, and nobody seems to notice or care.

Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs

Bernstein: Briggs’ Response Shows Bears’ Identity Challenge

Bernstein: Stop Getting Calls Wrong

I’m still waiting for a single credible argument against widely expanded use of instant replay in baseball to get critical calls right, since the two usually offered are embarrassingly limp.

Bernstein: Bulls’ Likeability Eroding

I don’t like the Bulls team we have seen lately, the one acting like undisciplined, unprofessional idiots while antagonizing officials and whining about calls.

Bernstein: Phil Emery Is A Hipster

When Bears GM Phil Emery uses a first-round pick on somebody you never even thought about, it’s because he’s been on that tip for a while, already. You know, before it was cool.

Bernstein: Stop Using ‘_____ -Strong’

The problem is in the word still being used that immediately brings to mind deception, lies and fraud.

We asked for your submissions and you obliged. Many were predictably obtuse and pointless. Most, actually. But there were a handful worthy of thoughtful response.

Bernstein: Alford ‘Apology’ Just Another Insult

Something odd must have occurred in the last nine days, because this contrition was nonexistent at Alford’s introductory press conference April 2.
