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.

Matthew Stafford Wins Pro Bowl MVP

Bring it home, baby! Stafford guided Michael Irvin’s team to a 32-28 comeback win in Arizona. He passed for over 300 yards and two touchdowns. Congratulations to all the Lions who were named to the Pro Bowl: Calvin Johnson Golden Tate III N’Damukong Suh Glover Quinn According to The Detroit Free Press, he was the first Lions […]

Lacking Some Air in Your Balls, Brady?

“Sadly, it only became more obvious after Brady spoke. And if the NFL finds in the coming days that Brady did have something to do with altering the 11 Patriots footballs reported to be under-inflated, then commissioner Roger Goodell needs to bench Brady for the Super Bowl,” (Tom’s Tale). He didn’t look right in his […]

Game Over

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 […]

Obama Agrees

Obama watched the Lions game and told The Detroit News in a Tuesday interview he couldn’t “remember a circumstance in which a good call by one of the refs is argued about by an opposing player of the other team with his helmet off on the field, which in and of itself is supposed to […]

NFL tells Detroit Lions Officials, “Blow Dick”

The NFL admitted to the Detroit Lions on Tuesday that officials missed a blatant hold on Ndamukong Suh on a crucial fourth-down conversion from Tony Romo to Jason Witten with six minutes left in Sunday’s wild-card game. “Had holding been called, it would have put the Cowboys in a fourth-and-16 hole on Detroit’s side of […]

Lions Play Their Hearts Out

If not for some unfortunate reffing, Detroit easily walks away the winner in a wild-card game they dominated. Our defense held Dallas to three-and-out to begin the game. Matthew Stafford promptly hooked up with Golden Tate III for a 51-yard score. 7-0 Lions, just like that. After the defense held again, the Cowboys punted to […]


This has gone far enough. You are fucking the living shit out of us with tainted replays – stop fucking us with crucial games on the line. COME ON *This is one of the worst things I’ve ever seen – there is no proof that Suh did anything wrong. I was listening to Brian Billick talk […]

Packers Get Lucky

Maybe we all had some nerves to start – who can blame a snarf? We were damn excited for the shot at the division, which truly belongs to us. Some tackling was sloppy initially, but we stuffed Green Bay on seven tries at the goal line to begin the game. It was the dominant display of […]

Pro Bowl Snubs

NDamukong Suh, Megatron, and Glover Quinn were all named to this season’s Pro Bowl – a huge snub for several Lions. 1. DeAndre Levy, linebacker “With all respect to Ndamukong Suh, Levy is the heart and soul of the Lions’ defense. He’s one of the smartest players in the league, seemingly knowing what play the […]

Lions Bounce Back to Beat Bears

Detroit simply dominated a game they’d end up barely winning. Our defense completely held the Bears in check. “Dark eyes” Clausen looked like every bit the spoiled brat. The Lions featured Reggie Bush on their opening touchdown drive. Bush made a huge play on a 4th down then rushed for a score on the next […]

Wired for Sound: Lions vs. Saints

Manning Wins Division with Stomach Flu

The internet had the gaul to make fun of Peyton’s block at the end of the first half. Manning, playing with the flu, stepped in and threw an unexpected block (successfully) when his running back changed course. Oh, just the flu, you know, that forced puking Peyton to take four bags of intravenous fluids between Saturday night […]
