Doug Wolter: No arbitration for me, thanks
I don’t begrudge today’s best professional athletes earning multi-million dollar contracts. We’ve come a long way since Joe DiMaggio reached the first $100,000 contract in 1949. If you can get it, more power to ya. I’m a great believer in the law of supply and demand.

DOUG WOLTER AND ADAM WATTS Daily Globe sports reporters If you were to say Michael Jordan is NOT the greatest basketball player of all time, would the sports police come knocking at your door? If you had the audacity to opine that Joe Louis was better than Muhammad Ali, would that...

Doug Wolter: Above all, be an encourager
I hardly ever read any articles in the Minnesota State High School League Bulletin when it crosses my desk. Bulletin writers are always pounding the same themes -- participation, sportsmanship, responsibility, teamwork -- that kind of stuff. It’s not that I don’t believe in those...

Doug Wolter: Football battles to stay ahead of injuries
On Saturday while relaxing in a lawn chair at a family reunion, my wife’s cousin Gary and I discussed football. Gary wondered out loud why, when we were younger, NFL players seemed to suffer so few injuries compared to today. We opined that perhaps the change is largely due to the...

Doug Wolter: Trust me, the game has changed
I am suitably excited about the return of major league baseball, and as a lifelong fan I know the lure. Baseball is as regular as the coming of spring and — its disciples remind us — just as unchangeable. That’s not exactly true, of course. Baseball has undergone many important...

For the next six months, we’ve got to learn to adjust to life without NFL football. It’s going to be tough, but I’ve already begun. Last Sunday afternoon, a few hours prior to the final NFL broadcast of the 2015 season — Super Bowl 50 — I practiced for my new early Sunday...
