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.

Lions Snarf Browns in Preseason Debut

Trailing 12-6, the Lions marched down their home field easily, looking like they’d punch in the winning touchdown. Unfortunately, a botched snap put the ball back in Cleveland’s hands with less than three minutes to play. After some solid defense forced a three-and-out, Detroit received the ball one last time.

Tony Dungy Fucks Up

Criminality is a choice. Sexuality is not. Do you understand my point? via Tony Dungy supports Michael Vick, not Michael Sam – ESPN. How ignorant are people about homosexuality? “So, how does that work?” Goddamn assholes.

Messing around with a guy on Twitter, White said, @DHoyt77 if mercer beat duke I will give you season tickets 50 yard line first row — Roddy White (@roddywhiteTV) March 18, 2014 Well, the rest is history. At first, White didn’t think he should have to pay up. He offered tickets to one game against the Bears instead, since that [...]

NFL Free Agency Frenzy

Detroit Lions Step UP

“As an organization and football team, the Detroit Lions place the highest priority on inclusiveness and diversity,” team president Tom Lewand said Monday in a statement released by the team. “We applaud Michael Sam for his courage and proactive approach, and we will evaluate him, like every player, based solely on his abili [...]

AFC CHAMPIONS Now that the season is over, I would like to properly put it in perspective. Peyton Manning won another MVP by setting the single season NFL records in passing yardage and touchdowns.

Peyton Manning “Classiest Perso...

“When I was limping up to my press conference and trying to make it up the stairs, somebody taps me on the shoulder and extends their hand and asks if I’m all right,” Richard Sherman said during the interview. “My eyes try to make it up to see who it is, and it’s Peyton … fully dressed in a suit and obvious [...]
