Jackin for Beats Mossisms


By Jeff Moss October 1, 2011 DetroitSportsRag@gmail.com When I was growing up as a youth on the rough and tumble streets of West Bloomfield Township, I passed the days as a young African-American wannabe (JewFro included) by listening to the music of a fine gentleman who went by the name…

DSR Power Rankings


By Jeff Moss September 23, 2011 DetroitSportsRag@gmail.com  It was an interesting week in Detroit Sports with the Tigers officially capturing the AL Central and then going into "Mail-It In Mode" while the Lions demolished the Kansas City Chiefs. And what better way to chronicle these events than the DSR's Power…

Random Tiger Thoughts Mossisms

I Was Wrong … No, Seriously


By Jeff Moss September 16, 2011 DetroitSportsRag@gmail.com  I have more personal flaws than a house full of Dr. Drew Pinsky patients surrounded by a VH-1 camera crew, but one of the more pronounced faults I possess is never being able to admit that I am wrong. Actually, the DetroitSportsRag isn’t…

Lions Week 1 Diary


By Jeff Moss September 12, 2011 DetroitSportsRag@gmail.com  For the first time in about 13 years I woke up on Sunday GENUINLEY excited to watch the Detroit Lions play a football game. Not since Barry Sanders quit back in the summer of 1999 have I truly pushed all of my chips…

By Jeff Moss September 11, 2011 DetroitSportsRag@gmail.com  One of my favorite articles to write back in the halcyon days of the DSR was the “Power Rankings.” Mainly because I didn’t have to come up with a creative way to tie in a divergent group of subjects or write a witty…

Why I Hate Fantasy Football


By Jeff Moss September 6, 2011 DetroitSportsRag@gmail.com  I am quite sure this will be the least popular column in history of the DSR. An article in Vogue espousing the couture collection at TJ Maxx would probably go over better. An expose on the legislative genius of Barney Frank in the…

The Price is Finally Right


By Jeff Moss September 2, 2011 DetroitSportsRag@gmail.com  In my first post since I tacitly suggested that I would be turning over a new leaf and finally heeding the advice of my late mentor, Tom Kowalski, by refraining from personal attacks in my columns, I had a tough choice to make.…

What if Brandon Inge were Black?


By Jeff Moss August 28, 2011 DetroitSportsRag@gmail.com  As you probably already know, last week ESPN: The Magazine idiotically decided to publish a column entitled, “What if Michael Vick were White?” In the second dumbest move of ESPN’s week (mistakenly inviting Tommy Craggs of Deadspin.com to their State of the Mothership…

Is Alex Avila Good?


By Jeff Moss August 27, 2011 DetroitSportsRag@gmail.com  As I have mentioned in previous columns, I get constant feedback on Twitter that I am a miserable human being who never has a nice thing to say about anyone or anything. And for the most part that is a valid criticism because…
