The AFC South was the weakest division in the AFC because of the horrendous seasons by the Jaguars and Titans, who both saw major setbacks last year. The Colts remained very consistent and dangerous, while the Texans moved from last place in 2013 to a very respectable 9-7 second-place finish.
While many have become outraged by the recent trend in All-Star voting, including players, fans, and experts alike, MLB Network’s Greg Amsinger seems to have come up with the best way yet. The idea is not necessarily original, but he thinks that the MLB should take an approach similar to the Presidential election.

While most may not remember that name, he happens to be the same person involved in the Jets’ tripping incident back in 2010. He was suspended for the action and resigned soon after because of the backlash from the incident.
Some people are crazy, but Jameis Winston seems to take it to a new level with his latest statement.
