Points by Ben Simmons during Game 3 victory over Nets

Eric Fisher’s weekly column about a variety of topics. This week Eric serves up opinions on the potential impact of the Eagles’ loss to the Lions, the Flyers’ roster and the Union’s precarious predicament.

Internal NCAA emails, turned over as part of discovery in a lawsuit, reveal that NCAA officials had doubts whether the organization had the right to impose draconian sanctions on Penn State in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal.

The Sixers are above .500 for the first time since November of 2013, but the difference is this time it appears the success will last. Eric Fisher also examines Ben Simmons’ fast start, the Jahlil Okafor (pictured) situation and the Sixers’ upcoming West Coast trip.

Downturn continues?

The Phillies missed the postseason in 2012.

The Eagles went 4-12 in 2012.

The Sixers were within a game of reeaching the conference finals in 2012, while the Flyers also made it to the second round after delivering a rousing win over the Penguins.

But this season, the Sixers and Flyers are off to slow starts.

Will either make the playoffs? What do you think??
