    Duff McKagan

    Editor's note: This column was published prior to Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose's statement that he will not be attending the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony, and is declining induction. Some of you may know that my band Guns N' Roses will be in...

  2. Duff McKagan describes the NFL's QB landscape in one word: Meh

    Duff McKagan

    I love the text message expression that often pops up on online forums. It is spelled "meh" and, practiced in real life, can be accompanied by a shoulder shrug or a snarky sneer. Meh, simply put, means "average." Meh seems to be more often used with...

  3. Duff McKagan says arena deals for sports teams have big payoffs

    Duff McKagan

    It seems that our society as a whole has become much more aware of our local economics. When your state, county and/or city is going broke -- like what has happened to so many here in America the past few years -- we become more aware of the whats an...

    Duff McKagan

    Since I am not your usual type of writer here at ESPN (read: not a sportswriter by anyone's wildest imagination), it has been my mission to try to equate a sports story here or there to something perhaps that I have experienced. McKagan has seen some...

    Duff McKagan

    If you live up here in the Northwest and are a sports fan, there is no doubt then that you probably became very aware of the news that The Seattle Times broke on Saturday -- that secret talks have been under way since last spring for a new downtown N...

  6. Can Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck coexist like Jagger and Richar...

    Duff McKagan

    I know we are all in the midst of thinking about the Super Bowl. But it can be assumed that most of us who aren't from Boston or New York are already thinking about what their team is going to do next season. And more to that point, what is going t...

  7. Duff McKagan says Eli Manning isn't much of a showman, but he get...

    Duff McKagan

    For how goofy and uncomfortable Eli Manning looks to be on the field, that dude has got to win the award for Most Quietly Confident for this entire season. If Manning were a singer in a rock-'n'-roll band, he'd be the type that would be doing just s...

  8. Duff McKagan: Bored with these unnecessary bowls

    Duff McKagan

    So, in the long run -- and to be honest about it -- I was glad that my Washington Huskies football team made a bowl game. If you are an old-schooler like myself, well, then you will remember the time in the not-too-distant past, that an unranked 7-5-...

  9. Duff McKagan responds to readers' messages

    Duff McKagan

    After writing 50 columns for ESPN in the past year, I'm changing things up this week by answering some of the many emails you've sent in to my mailbag. Duff: I know exactly how you feel! I'm a Cleveland sports fan from Columbus, and not only get t...

  10. Wishing for good will and Seahawks in playoffs

    Duff McKagan

    In recent memory, I cannot seem to remember the fact that so many NFL teams are still in the hunt for a playoff spot this late in the season. Especially those teams with .500 records or sub-.500 records. This NFL season has been a real "head scrat...

  11. Duff McKagan gives respect to Tim Tebow, Eli Manning

    Duff McKagan

    Have you ever been in a stressful group situation? A team deadline at work? Witnessed a school-yard fight? We have all probably, at one time in our lives, been privy to seeing that one guy who seems to take those stressful situations in stride. He i...

  12. Playoff time in Alice in Chains charity league

    Jim Wilkie

    Appropriately enough, members of Alice in Chains dominate the field of teams that compose the final four in the third annual Alice in Chains & Friends Fantasy Football Charity League. Sean Kinney overtook guitarist Jerry Cantrell last week to e...

  13. McKagan: Hype pulls me in for Cotto-Margarito

    Duff McKagan

    Just back from a month away from the good 'ol USA and, starving for American sports news, I ravenously digested ESPN and ESPN2 for the most part of Friday morning through just after noon. As a result, I found that the rematch of Cotto-Margarito ...

  15. McKagan: Rock, raids and global sports in Rio

    Duff McKagan

    I write this week's column from somewhere 30-something-odd thousand feet above the Atlantic Ocean, flying en route from Cordoba, Argentina, to Berlin. My band, Loaded, has been on a most grueling 16-cities-in-20-days onslaught that has taken us from ...

  16. McKagan: Surprising Seattle boost in South America

    Duff McKagan

    I write to you this fine Sunday from a plane that is en route from Santiago, Chile, to Sao Paulo, Brazil. I'm down here with Loaded playing a few big rock festivals -- as, of course, spring is giving way to summer in the southern hemisphere. On th...
