Dear Eddie Jones, Firstly, let’s make one thing perfectly clear from the start; I admire you as a rugby intellect and I was nigh ecstatic when you were appointed England head coach at the end of November. Despite the fact that you don’t care what I think, and you’re an Aussie, I was genuinely pleased. And that’s unfortunately where the positivity of this letter ceases. You arrived an enigmatic rugby professor. Brash, but not rude. Vociferous but not mean-spirited. Full of promise, and full of the things that everyone wanted to hear. You had an air of the daring. You banded about words like “form” and “potential”. You took on the daunting role of attack coach yourself and, seeing how incisive and well-constructed your previous sides have been with ball in hand, not one rugby-phile...

Check out the sensational letter:Dear Sir Alex Ferguson… sir, How are ya old whiskey nose? It’s been a while. I see you’re still farting around Old Trafford and, oddly enough, you seem to be looking younger by the day. Fair play to you. Now, before we begin, I’d just like to put everything out in the open so that we’re both on the same page. As a Manchester United supporter, there was a time when I looked up to you like a God. I’m not going to start listing your achievements or anything as I’m sure you still whisper them to yourself before you go to sleep at night but, you did a bang up job. Again, fair play. Having said all that however, Fergie me old flower, I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you that, at this current moment in time, I’m starting to think that you’re a bit of an ar*...

Dear Mr. Newton, I am a huge fan of the NFL. I have enjoyed watching the sport of professional football ever since I was a little kid growing up in Mesa, Arizona. As a kid, I remember the old school players like Dan Fouts, Jim Plunkett, Earl Campbell, Billy "White Shoes" Johnson, Tony Dorsett, Joe Montana, and so on and so on. And while being weaned on those players and their antics, I just want to say how dare you. How dare you behave with an unrivaled passion and lead your team to a franchise record 15 wins. You think the players of old celebrated touchdowns or danced their way back to the sidelines after a score? Who do you think you are celebrating 45 total touchdowns this year (35 passing, 10 rushing) by running into the crowd and finding a lucky, young kid in the stand and...

Mr. Rhoades, I am emailing you as a life long fan of Missouri athletics. My love affair started with the men's basketball program under Norm Stewart. I grew up cheering with the same passion that Coach Stewart showed while leading his team's to wins and some heartbreaking losses. Players like Anthony Peeler, Doug Smith, Melvin Booker, The Bandaid Man, and even our current coach Kim Anderson always seemed to leave everything they had out on the court. It was my love of basketball that guided me through the tough times on the football field. Even those football teams, who lost more than they won were viewed as Sleeping Giants. There was always hope that one day Mizzou would field a winning football team again. I'm very excited about the future of the football team. I believe Coach Odom...

Dear Penn State, What an exciting few years it has been. It seems like just yesterday that I was standing in the Cedar Cliff High School gym announcing my commitment to Penn State University. Prior to writing this letter, I spent time reflecting on the past three years, and I wanted to share some of my thoughts with all of you. There have been many memories along the way. The amazing support I have received from the fan base at Penn State has had an everlasting impact on me and my family. The journey has been amazing and unforgettable. I will never forget the "rush" I felt when I committed to Coach O'Brien. I will never forget the tears I cried when the sanctions were announced on that summer day in 2012. I will never forget the look of pride in my parents' eyes when I told them I...

To Sky, The decision to move Arsenal’s match with Leicester is more than disappointing - it’s disgraceful. What’s most infuriating is that Sky had the opportunity to make this a television game before Christmas. Leicester were already in an elevated position then, and the allure of this fixture was already clear. There is no excuse for leaving it this late. Of course, there will be plenty of neutrals who are delighted they’ll now be able to watch the game from the comfort of their sofa. However, in making this switch you’ve inconvenienced many supporters who have already made specific plans and investments to attend o the original date — not least the Leicester fans, who will have made their own arrangements for travel. Foxes supporters have already announced they will be staging...

Dear Mr. Newton, I am a Seahawk fan, I bleed blue and green. Although I will be the first to tell you that today, we did not bring our A game, and were beat fair and square. There is one thing though, one thing that needs to be said. My news feed is filled with you Mr. Newton, and not in a good way. A video of you pulling a 12th flag down and throwing it to the ground like garbage. You see the one that people don’t realize is, Seahawk fans aren’t just fans. The 12th man is a community, a family, that regardless of winning stand behind our team and our community. So you see Cam, disrespecting the 12th man flag isn’t just disrespecting our team, it is disrespecting the fans that back our team. A community that feeds and clothes the homeless, a community that raises funds for families...

It’s time that you grow up and stop. You have no idea how ignorant and foolish you look trying to distort one of the greatest dynasties in NFL history. I understand that you may be upset, as some of you have the right to be. Some people find it boring that a team makes it to 6 Super Bowls in 15 years, or wins 13 divisional titles, or appear in 9 conference championship games. The saying always goes, “haters gonna hate”. Some of your current reasoning’s for the success of the Patriots team has hit an all-time low. Such as last year in the AFC championship game with deflatgate, to spy-gate in 2007, then in 2013 Arron Hernandez being arrested with the death of Odin Lloyd. It seems to me that I find it important to break some truth to you all. It’s time that you haters realize that no...
