A monster named Mike and the man he is now



There is likely no other sports figure in recent history that has so thoroughly and consistently been labeled a monster than Michael Gerard Tyson.

1. A creature that typically is large, ugly and frightening; 2. An inhumanely cruel or wicked person; 3. A person, typically a child, who is rude or badly behaved. Those are three definitions of the same word – monster.

There is likely no other sports figure in recent history that has so thoroughly and consistently been labeled a monster than Michael Gerard Tyson.In the past, the media rarely talked about Mike Tyson in terms of “who” he was. Was he conceived in a petri dish, a test tube or hatched? Who were his parents? These never seemed germane to any reports about Mike.

Lorna Mae Tyson gave birth to the youngest of her three children, Michael, on June 30, 1966 in Brooklyn, N.Y. His father Purcell Tyson, a man of Jamaican descent, was never in his son’s life. So Mike was pretty much on his own. He was a little kid with a lisp, a squeaky voice and a particular love for pigeons. Ironically, his peaceful, passive, passion for pigeons pushed him into pugilistic pursuits. A bigger, older kid once ripped the head off one of Mike’s pigeons. Mike attacked. This began a life of brutal, rage-fueled beatings that would become his lifestyle.

The streets raised Mike Tyson; home training didn’t really exist. By the time he was 13 he’d been arrested 38 times. His momma died when he was 16 and he dropped out of high school. He became the ward of boxing manager and trainer Cus D’Amato, who became his legal guardian.

All-Star games need 3Rs: review, revamp and reestablishment


The NBA All-Star Game and the NFL Pro Bowl need upgrades and here are some recommendations for the commissioners.


by Howard Robertson and Larry Robinson | 2/28/2015, 3:16 p.m.


Back in the day, University of Memphis students and fans started their home court harassment of opposing basketball teams during team introductions. The entire student section would open newspapers in front of their faces, then each time an opposing player’s name was introduced they’d express their disinterest in perfect unison by yelling “Who cares” or “Big deal” or “Go home.”

We believe those are the same sentiments that many NBA and NFL fans currently have about the NBA All-Star and the NFL Pro Bowl games. It’s definitely time for a serious review of these games’ relevance and appeal as well as some revamping.

Principals need principles


Leave it to the sports world to remind us of the powerful difference between principal and principle.


by Howard Robertson and Larry Robinson | 2/14/2015, 12:39 p.m.


The homonyms principal and principle are often confused in spelling and definition. Perhaps it’s easier to remember that a principal is someone or something that is the primary and most important. On the other hand, a principle is a basic truth, a moral rule or a law of nature. Although they sound the same, these concepts are powerfully different, as we have seen in the sports world over the past few weeks.

Of the same ilk as Tyson, Tiger, Venus, Serena Williams and Peyton and Eli, Bill Belichick was a prodigy. As the son of a football coach, he was raised to coach pro football. While Robert Kraft owns the New England Patriots, there has never been any question whatsoever about who operates the Patriots’ organization.

If speech is free, shouldn’t silence be?


Super Bowl Talk: Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has become a media sensation largely because of his disdain for interviews.

by Howard Robertson and Larry Robinson | 1/29/2015, 12:09 p.m.


The First Amendment says: “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech.”

The National Football League says: “Players must be available to the media following every game and regularly during the practice week as required under league rules and their contracts.”

So, our Constitution guarantees that by law, we will always be free to say what we want. We’re also free to be quiet. But then the NFL mandates that players be available to the media.
