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.

Game O...

But the most important thing — the Patriot legacy — is lost. The Patriots and their fans will never win the “best ever” argument. Everything is tainted. Footballs (reportedly) have been doctored, headlines have been written, and opinions have been formed. Adding to the evidence: “Patriot has not won a road playoff game in seven […]

ESPN Chooses NFL Over “Sports GuyR...

That’s how you run a journalistic enterprise: suspend one of your writers for stating the facts everyone already knows! Just like when you pulled out of Playmakers, huh? The ESPN likes it’s Monday Night Football. So, Simmons, you going public?

Seriously, Phare...

Is this how lame we are – everyone kisses his ass so much “Oh, he’s soooo cool,” that we can’t even call him out anymore? Have you seen the hats he’s getting away with? DUDE YOU ARE NOT HIP, YOU ARE NOT COOL. You’re a clown. #FAG

Sad Revelations: Macklemore = Sell...

The decisions Macklemore is making are more than tasteless. They are, in a way, changing his music, twisting and adding meaning that I don’t believe he intends—meaning that is, I think, destructive. Consider the evolution of “Wing$,” a song where Macklemore bemoans the killing of innocent kids for Air Jordans, a status symbol. When he […]

Please, No More Instant Rep...

We can’t take it. Let them review it themselves: beyond two replays on the television hurts our brains!


It’s officially reached LEVEL 5 of CATACLYSM. IF WE DON’T FIGHT FOR OUR PISTONS RIGHT NOW – WE WILL LOSE THEM. Gore has done nothing but dissemble our great franchise since he took it over. He’s a classic rich brat who thinks he can demand winning. He’s about to force Joe Dumars to resign. Who […]

“Twitter WarR...

That is literally a headline as one of five Sportscenter “Topics” on ESPN. That’s a top five ESPNer: “Twitter War.”

What the Fu...

The lead on ESPN is our boy Schwartz getting canned, but Michael Shumacher in critical condition barely makes it? HE’S DYING YOU FUCKING ASSHOLES. Goddamn.

Rick Reilly’s Confusing Contradicti...

Way to take a stand, Rick. Your article is massively confusing. You defend the term Redskins, but your own father-in-law said this: Guess we need to listen to people who are offended by the Kansas City Chiefs‘ name, too. That’s one that offends my father-in-law. “You see some little guy wearing a headdress made of chicken […]

How Stupid Is ESPN the M...

I sent this to them: My name is Eric Ralph and I am a subscriber to ESPN the Magazine. You sent me the 9/16/13 issue with Canelo Alvarez on the cover. I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Since you mention my city in the Floyd Mayweather, Jr. article, I assume you know HE IS FROM […]


PAT CAPUTO: Reality sets in that Detroit Tigers are not quite as good as advertised – No one should ever read this snarf. The Tigers and Indians might be tied, and we might want to step it up, but in no way are we “not as good as advertised.” Fuck this dude. This really […]
