John Gambadoro Columns

  • It will be nice to get back to basketball for a bit
    John Gambadoro | April 05, 2013 2:22 pm
    The Final Four cannot start soon enough. After a week of talking about coaching abuse, failed drug tests, cheating and bounties in the world of college sports, I am ready for some Peyton Siva, Trey...
  • Will Larry Scott's ego prevent him from doing the right thing?
    John Gambadoro | April 02, 2013 1:50 pm
    How Ed "T 'em up" Rush still has a job with the Pac-12 as its coordinator of officials is beyond comprehension. How Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott can back an investigation that said Rush's bounty...
  • Timing of Kevin Ware's injury could have factored in Louisville win
    John Gambadoro | April 01, 2013 2:52 pm
    The image of Louisville's Kevin Ware lying on the court near the Cardinal bench in Indianapolis is not one I care to remember. I saw the replay once and that was enough for me. It was easily one of...
  • Just say 'no' to Carson Palmer, Cardinals
    John Gambadoro | March 28, 2013 5:18 pm
    Been there done that and nine times out of ten, it doesn't work. The Arizona Cardinals should just say 'no' to another retread quarterback in Carson Palmer and try something very foreign to them --...
  • One weekend in, the tournament has provided us no stars
    John Gambadoro | March 26, 2013 12:38 pm
    So while the NCAA Tournament is generating huge television ratings and tons of excitement, it has done nothing to whet the appetite of Suns fans clamoring for a superstar. The top five picks in this...
  • Adrian Wilson changed the Arizona Cardinals
    John Gambadoro | March 08, 2013 11:54 am
    The Phoenix/Arizona Cardinals have been in existence since the team moved here from St. Louis in 1988. In that time they have had 225 draft picks, but none more important than the third round pick...
  • It will be a sad day when Cardinals abandon Flagstaff
    John Gambadoro | March 04, 2013 12:27 pm
    It will be a sad day when the Arizona Cardinals and the City of Glendale announce a 15-year agreement for the professional football team to host its training camp in the West Valley city. Training...
  • 'Little Gambo' signs letter of intent
    John Gambadoro | February 06, 2013 10:40 am
    She had 14 days from today to sign and date the document for it to become official. But she had no need to take that long. She was not allowed to sign it until 7:00 a.m. Wednesay morning, so she signed...
  • Suns make huge mistake in hiring Lindsey Hunter as head coach
    John Gambadoro | January 21, 2013 8:17 am
    In the span of a weekend the Phoenix Suns fired the wrong guy and then they hired the wrong guy. The whirlwind 48-hour so-called interview process that followed the surprising firing of head coach...
  • Thanks for everything Whiz, but it was time for a change
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | December 31, 2012 4:45 pm
    It's always difficult when someone loses their job -- yes, even multi-millionaires like Ken Whisenhunt. But the time had come. Every coach has a message, a plan, a belief in his system and Whisenhunt...
  • Good riddance, Beanie Wells
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | December 27, 2012 10:51 am
    So Beanie "the Bust" Wells wants to woo the other 31 teams in the NFL? Sure Beanie, go ahead. But not from the football field on...
  • Gambo: Only time will tell on D-backs' trade of Bauer
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | December 12, 2012 1:00 pm
    Only time will tell if the Arizona Diamondbacks made a good trade on Tuesday. What we do know is they dealt from a position of strength (pitching prospects) to address a position of need (shortstop). Now,...
  • Suns should be regretting Michael Beasley's signing by now
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | December 05, 2012 8:35 am
    Let's get one thing clear here. The Phoenix Suns did not learn from their past mistakes of wasting good money on bad players like Josh Childress, Hedo Turkoglu and Hakim Warrick. Somehow, someway...
  • Change could be coming, but are the Cardinals committed to winning?
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | December 04, 2012 8:33 am
    It is not a fun time to be an Arizona Cardinals fan right now. An eight-game losing streak! Seriously! In a league of parity, the hapless Cardinals have managed to have losing streaks of six, seven and...
  • Mike D'Antoni gives Lakers best chance to win
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | November 12, 2012 12:29 pm
    Now Mike D'Antoni can "bust' the Phoenix Suns. The former Suns coach is now the coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, and contrary to those who object, this is an absolutely great hire for the purple and...
  • Los Angeles Lakers had to fire Mike Brown
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | November 09, 2012 12:26 pm
    The 1-4 Lakers wasted little time in firing Mike Brown as head coach, and they fired him for all the right reasons. Brown and the Princeton offense that he had Eddie Jordan bring in was the worst possible...
  • D-backs emulating Giants' championship blueprint
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | October 29, 2012 10:12 am
    With two World Series wins in the past three years, you would figure teams would want to emulate the San Francisco Giants. And no team is closer to the Giants' brand of baseball than the Arizona Diamondbacks....
  • A big test awaits in Tempe next Thursday
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | October 12, 2012 1:01 pm
    This is the game. The big test. A chance to finally find out how good of a college football team they are. After a schedule filled with bad to mediocre teams, the first big test is finally here. This...
  • Sun Devils have chance to elevate their status in Berkeley
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | September 28, 2012 6:51 am
    After watching Washington beat Stanford Thursday night, I am more convinced than ever that Arizona State has a great opportunity to break into the top four in the Pac-12 Conference this season -- maybe...
  • Gambo's random thoughts: Cards, CY and Doan
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | September 18, 2012 9:34 pm
    I think we are all surprised by the Cardinals being 2-0 mainly because they had to play New England on the road. Clearly this team is winning with defense and special teams, but Kevin Kolb is doing what...
