Follow @wolfebltd Another week is in the books – football fans have had themselves a good week of football to watch. Who doesn’t love watching a rookie who has no business starting and throwing five interceptions? *sobbing* I MEAN I LOVE FOOTBALL, MAN.
Follow @theREELevankern I’m just going to come right out and say it: I’ve always been more of a sucker for Marvel than DC. That said, I know Marvel has had their flukes, but (more attributable to Disney’s bottomless wallet, I’d wager) they’ve always had their formula down; when Iron Man came out in 2009—you could… Read more »
Follow @theREELevankern No television premiere has had me this excited. Ever. The return of Stranger Things on Netflix has been all anyone’s talked about for the last six months, and it’s finally here! It’s clear that the Duffer Brothers haven’t lost the vision that they set out with, during season one; a lot of the… Read more »
Follow @DelReid Follow @wolfebltd Trust the Podcast is back on the air with another week of Bills analysis but this week, things are a little different. With the breaking news of Nathan Peterman getting his first NFL start over Tyrod Taylor, surely there was more than enough to talk about. That doesn’t even begin to… Read more »
Follow @wolfebltd The good teams continue to win and the bad teams continue to lose – what a novel concept! These mutually exclusive events have created a bit of a logjam throughout our weekly power rankings. Either way, jump below and take a look to see where your favorite tackle football franchise ranks this week.
Follow @theREELevankern When a movie kicks off with visuals that blur the line between naturally-shot and digitally-enhanced, you know you’re in for something special. The Harry Potter franchise was the first to do this, in my recorded memory, and continues to do so with its Fantastic Beasts spin-off films (yes, multiple; Warner Bros. is definitely… Read more »
Follow @wolfebltd Rochester’s own Joywave kicked off their month-long, 21 city tour in style on Saturday night. Anthology played host to Joywave, Kopps, The Aces and The Demos. According to their Facebook page, Anthology is “a restored multi-level auto warehouse in the historic East End district”. This venue is a very nice addition to a Rochester-area… Read more »
Follow @wolfebltd Heading into Week 10, the Philadelphia Eagles hold serve and continue to look very impressive in the process. Carson Wentz continues to look like a surefire MVP candidate as well. The only issue? The dreaded bye week. They need to maintain momentum moving forward. A quick side note: Continue to trust the process,… Read more »
Follow @DelReid Follow @wolfebltd The playoff momentum train came to a screeching halt last Thursday night, when the Buffalo Bills faceplanted against the New York Jets. Del Reid and Ryan Wolfe are back to try and make sense of what exactly went wrong on Thursday (spoiler: almost everything) and where the Bills go from here…. Read more »
Follow @9pointplay Put the NBA on notice. The future is here, and outcries of “the sky is the limit” are ringing through the air. The six-foot-eleven-inch small forward/point guard/positionless wonder of Athens, Greece is on full display. It doesn’t take statistics to see that Giannis Antetokounmpo (pronounced ah-deh-do-KUN-bo, if you’re still struggling with it) is… Read more »

Is NHL Free Agency a dying trend?
Follow @BJWilsonWGR The National Hockey League’s Free Agency period was, at one point, one of the days to look forward to most in a league year. Players with expiring contracts would be able to talk to other teams regarding new contracts, and most would receive a nice pay-day come July 1. For the Buffalo Sabres,… Read more »Posted on July 23, 2015 by Brayton Wilson
Thank you, Van
Follow @BJWilsonWGR Growing up as a kid in the Western New York area, I was heavily influenced by the two professional sports teams in the 716 area code: The National Hockey League’s Buffalo Sabres, and the National Football League’s Buffalo Bills. Two teams with a huge fan base across the country, and two teams with… Read more »Posted on July 20, 2015 by Brayton Wilson

Bruins confusing offseason has many wondering
Follow @Alex_BLTD The Boston Bruins have been a team that the Buffalo Sabres and the entire Eastern Conference have feared for the last 5 years or so. However, this offseason for the Bruins feels like a repeat of the Sabres’ 2011 offseason, which has turned into a fiery disaster. Bruins general manager Don Sweeney, under… Read more »Posted on July 17, 2015 by Alex Beilman
What to do with Marcus Foligno?
Follow @BJWilsonWGR It almost seemed like yesterday, four seasons ago, when Marcus Foligno came into the Buffalo spotlight and swept Sabres fans off their feet. At the time, Foligno was a call-up from Rochester late in the 2011-12 season. Foligno was stellar in that stretch, amassing six goals and seven assists, and was a bright… Read more »Posted on July 16, 2015 by Brayton Wilson
Defense: Who’s still out there?
Follow @BJWIlsonWGR The 2015 offseason for the Buffalo Sabres has been an eventful one to say the least.
