    Mark Schlereth enjoyed a long, prosperous career in the National Football League (NFL). The two-time Pro Bowler — 1992 and 1999 — started in 140 games and was part of three Super Bowl Champion teams. But like every player, he paid a physical price.

    Extra time should equal some reward, says UAA’s Thomas

    by Dave Goldman on Aug 15, 18:10

    Sometimes 60 minutes of hockey isn’t enough. Everyone can agree on that, but how a team is rewarded for the extra work is up for debate. A summertime proposal to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) to increase the pace of the overtime session was turned down. That would have seen a four-on-four five minute session, followed by three-on-three and […]
