Snarf (snärf): A humorous occurrence and/or person, specifically one relating to the world of sport

About Us

The Sporting Snarf is a website dedicated to the enjoyable, humorous, and nuanced aspects of the sporting and (to a lesser extent) pop-culture world. We attempt to touch upon, in varying degrees of print/video length, engaging topics which are not discussed nearly enough.

We'd love for you to give us your perspective, network, and participate regularly. But if you'd just like to join in on the mob-mentality and get all sanctimonious on a particular sports figure -- head on over to (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.) Or you can keep it real with us.


That’s how many Rockford Football players have played at U of M since 1973.

I’ve noticed Rockford dominates at a HS level due to steroids, being stronger than any other school, literally letting players lift weights in illegal Advanced Condition extra Football Practice, having the most people, etc., but doesn’t sent ANYONE to the State’s top Football Program.


Is it because Rockford doesn’t give these players room to develop, instead maxing out every muscle like HS Football Robots?

Weight lifting at an early age is dangerous and may stunt growth…
