    NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, facing criticism he did not punish Ray Rice enough for knocking out his then-fiancee and dragging her unconscious body into a casino hotel lobby, expanded his punishment and hit Janay Rice with a $500,000 fine. She will also be banned from attending all Ravens games for the entire 2014 season.  “Many in the media as well as our fans have said that my punishment was too light,” the commissioner wrote in a statement announcing the fine. “After careful deliberation, I found myself agreeing with that assessment. It was unfair to punish Ray and…

    The trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey hit last week and made quite the impact almost immediately. It would seem that people can’t wait to watch their hypersexed fan fiction version of Twilight on the big screen. We’ve seen other reactions, but few will top this clip of The Roots reacting to the trailer on The Tonight Show. What sets it apart is the special added bonus that Fallon and crew added to the trailer in order to give The Roots that extra kick they needed.

Spanish newspaper Marca reported on Wednesday that a large bid has been made by the Blues for the 29-year-old, via 101 Great Goals: Miranda played 32 league games for Atletico last season as they won La Liga and conceded just 26 goals all season, the fewest in the division.

A case in point is Muhamed Besic, the Bosnia midfielder who signed from Ferencvaros this week, who told the Everton official website that Martinez was the key reason for him joining the Toffees.

  • NASCAR suspends Hamlin crew chief Grubb 6 races (The Associated Press)

    29 Jul 2014 | 3:25 pm
    NASCAR suspended Denny Hamlin's crew chief and car chief on Tuesday for six races because the Joe Gibbs Racing entry failed inspection following his third-place finish at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Darian Grubb and Wesley Sherrill were both suspended through the Sept. 6 race at Richmond. Grubb, the crew chief, was also fined $125,000. It strips Hamlin of two vital crew members during the stretch of the season he would be putting the finishing touches on preparations for NASCAR's title-deciding, 10-race Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.

Tuesday's ruling against Joe Gibbs Racing with a 75-point penalty for Denny Hamlin and a six-race suspension for crew chief Darian Grubb is easily the biggest penalty of the NASCAR season thus far. NASCAR is pretty tight on stuff that goes into the driver's compartment because that goes toward the safety side of it. I understand it from the NASCAR side of it, but from the team side of it, we look at it as pretty severe for what may have been wrong…

    Track irrigated as ground continues to quicken at Sussex track Paul Hanagan has heavy fall as White Nile slips on bendRacegoers will flock here for day two of the Glorious meeting on Wednesday anticipating a thrilling clash between the top-class talents Kingman and Toronado in the Sussex Stakes, but there are significant fears that the sun-baked ground may cause the John Gosden-trained Kingman to miss the race, reducing it to just three runners.

Seemingly since that now infamous night involving Tiger Woods in November 2009, when the most iconic sports icon came crashing (no pun intended) down to earth, golf has been searching for its next star. When Rory McIlroy won the U.S Open in 2011 and then followed it up with a PGA Championship victory in 2012, everyone in the golf world let out a collective sigh of relief – they had a star again.

  • Alternative Medicine In Sports: Energy Management and Injury Prevention

    Claire Kelly
    17 Jun 2014 | 9:00 am
    Overtraining, not training enough, coming back too soon from a previous injury; there are so many reasons why an elite athlete can get injured in the height of their career. However one of the key reasons, I believe, athletes get injured is because they are somewhat disconnected from the emotional aspect. In particular they aren’t in touch with the balance of their masculine (yang) and feminine (yin) aspects. When you are training incessantly, on the road competing and constantly putting yourself into a competitive scenario, you are automatically in the “masculine” aspect.

Michael Sam hasn’t played one snap in the National Football League, yet he is already creating more headlines than most college players hoping to be drafted next month. Sam, a standout college player from the University of Missouri, became the first openly gay player that will eventually be in the NFL. Of all social issues, perhaps nothing garners more attention in today’s media than gay rights, and Sam’s coming out in early February set the social media world ablaze.

    CHICAGO – Urban Meyer’s affinity for recruiting is well-documented, but you probably haven’t heard this story before. After stepping down from his post at Florida in 2010, Meyer took a broadcasting gig with ESPN. That February, the network asked him to aid in its coverage of National Signing Day. Pretty straightforward, right? Having one of the nation’s best recruiters talk about recruiting on its biggest day of the year is a no-brainer. But what Meyer saw that day bothered him. “My year out of football, they had me go do signing day and it was awful,” he said Tuesday at Big Ten…

    CHICAGO – Indiana. Maryland. Rutgers. Not quite Leaders or Legends when it comes to all-time great college football programs. But those three schools are now slotted in one of the sport’s toughest divisions – the up and coming Big Ten East. Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State and Penn State round off the vaunted group, perhaps marking a flashback to supremacy for the Big Ten. Geographic divisions have formed a powerhouse in the East and a wide-open West. Urban Meyer likened the looming grind of the Big Ten East to what he faced for six years in the SEC. If Ohio State advances to the…
  • How Urban Meyer Plays the Chords: Adding Variation to Base Run Plays

    Ross Fulton
    29 Jul 2014 | 10:15 am
    For all its accomplishments, Urban Meyer's run offense consists of just a few plays. Inside zone, power, and counter trey comprise the vast majority of run calls. But therein lies Meyer and his offense's success. Using a minimum of base concepts provides the offense countless practice reps. Offensive coordinator Tom Herman has stated that opposing defenses know that the Buckeyes will run inside zone or power in short yardage. But the Ohio State offense runs the play so many times that Meyer and Herman like their chances.   And by limiting themselves to a few core concepts, Meyer's staff…

    Coming off of a disappointing end to the 2013-14 season, the Ohio State Buckeyes will be looking to reach the first ever College Football Playoff. It is hard to tell if they will be able to accomplish this as they have lost a few key players and are facing a much tougher schedule this year compared to last. Braxton Miller is now a senior, which means that the quarterback should be much more experienced and comfortable when it comes time for the big games. Even with Miller's experience, the offense could be a little shaky to start the season as Coach Meyer has had to replace most of the…

Sonnen has retired from UFC and now he couldn't return, even if he wanted to. After appearing before the Nevada Athletic Commission, where Sonnen offered basically no defence, the commission imposed a ban of two years.  That decision, however, did not seem to be unanimous.

In contrast to the catastrophic sort of fail that was me attempting to ski last summer, this year I gracefully slowed to a stop, and waved a…

The “playoff” is four teams, but there was a championship game under the BCS and you could describe the other major bowls as “BCS bowls” without confusion. CFP (college football playoff) bowls maybe? I guess I’ll call them that. If you’re not aware, there is a three-year rotation for the semifinals. Year 1: Rose and Sugar. Year 2: Orange and Cotton. Year 3: Fiesta and Peach. So I’m going to go through all three possibilities using last year’s pre-bowl rankings. The Top Four Going by the BCS standings, this is how the…

New York9. Seattle10. Tulsa11. Chicago12. ConnecticutIt's definitely not mediocrity. This is probably the best-skilled WNBA we've ever seen, as showcased in the All-Star game.It's some serious parity, as all of that talent is spread out amongst the league's 12 teams.Players of…

  • Setting Triathlon Goals – Racing Happy

    19 Jul 2014 | 10:14 am
    At the beginning of each triathlon season, most triathletes sit down and plan their races based on their goals. Some goals are event based – “I want to qualify for X championship race.” Some goals are time/distance based – “I want to do a sub 5 hour 70.3.” Others are competition based – “I want to finish on the podium, or at least beat my brother who won’t quit bragging about the last race where he bested me.” While I’ve built previous seasons around each of those different types of goals, this year is different for me. This year my goals are “happiness…
  • Introducing #TrainerBingo

    15 Jan 2014 | 4:17 pm
    Now is the time of year that triathletes come out of their off season hibernation, focus on building their foundation for race season and try to shed a few lbs from all the Christmas cookies that they ate. In the northern part of the country, that also means lots of runs on snowy trails, masters swimming sessions and most importantly, long boring sessions on the trainer. Which leads me to the point of this post: What is the point of being  a nerdy, triathlon-obsessed social media geek if you can’t make fun of yourself? What do many triathletes do on the trainer?

  • My One Regret About My 2013 Triathlon Season

    1 Dec 2013 | 6:45 pm
    My “comeback” to triathlon this year was emotional and I am grateful for being able to toe the line, but there was one thing that I wish I could have changed. My one race wasn’t with my my Rev3 family. Go ahead and ignore everything I’m about to say if you want because Rev3 sponsors me and I’ve never had to pay to do any of their races, but know this. My triathlon team was the third group of people that I made sure knew about my accident right after my own family and close group of friends. They are legit “family” in my books. I don’t know of any other triathlon teams have…
  • Readjusting Priorities

    21 Nov 2013 | 6:02 pm
    My relationship with the triathlon world has been all over the place this year. When I was at my worst, I completely disconnected myself. I stopped reading triathlon blogs, avoided Twitter all together and stopped thinking about anything fitness related. The last thing I wanted to see was someone complaining about missing their marathon goal when I wasn’t sure if I’d ever be able to run a single step without crippling back pain. As my back healed, I eventually came out of hiding and quit being so grumpy, irritable and was actually open to hearing about and celebrating my friend’s…
  • What I Wish People Knew About My Broken Back

    14 Oct 2013 | 11:28 am
    Over the last eight months, a lot of people have asked me questions about my back, how I’m healing and when I’ll return to racing. Most of the time, the questions don’t really get at the heart of what I went through. For example, people would ask about my run training, when I really wanted to tell them about how proud I was for being strong enough to rake up a few leaves on my front yard – even if it completely wiped me out and I had to take a 2 hour nap after. I’m not normally comfortable talking about myself at length without someone giving me a good reason, so I feel like…

Below is the report created by Bank of America to show how they’d determine the value of the franchise. If you go to page 4, you’ll see a chart that compares several potential sale prices to annual revenues. Specifically, the $2B sale price represents more than 10x annual revenue, where on page 5, you’ll see that no other NBA team has sold for more than 5x annual revenue. So to…
  • Player Insurance and Title IX (Russell Scibetti)
    17 Jul 2014 | 4:58 pm
    Tweet Earlier today I read an interesting article on how Texas A&M was able to essentially discourage one of their top players from entering the NFL Draft by paying for his insurance policy. The basic idea with these types of policies is to cover against the risk of career ending injury and potentially losing out on future earnings by staying in school for another season. It’s becoming more common for players to take out these types of insurance policies themselves, but the premiums can be quite expensive. However, in this case, Texas A&M is paying for the policy, not the player.

  • Indian women thrash Trinidad and Tobago 14-0 in CWG hockey

    30 Jul 2014 | 12:23 am
    The Indian women’s hockey team came back strongly from a 0—3 defeat to New Zealand to thrash minnows Trinidad and Tobago 14—0 in their third Pool A match of the Commonwealth Games. India displayed immense maturity by learning from their previous defeat and not letting Sunday’s loss affect their game. It was in the fourth minute when Vandana Katariya converted a penalty corner to open the account. Deepika and Rani sneaked in two back-to-back field goals in the 11th and 12th minutes to make it 3—0.

  • Many Indian athletes in Glasgow yet to get their daily allowance

Most members of the 215-strong Indian contingent have spent more than ten days without the full allowance which has been increased to $50 from $25. The squash squad — including Saurav Ghosal and Dipika Pallikal — have not been paid their dues at all while the table tennis players received half of the allowance just yesterday night. “We have not got anything so far but we are told we should be getting the money soon,” Ghosal, who…

    30 Jul 2014 | 12:19 am
    In a match that is within England’s grasp, India is struggling to stay afloat. When monumental occupation of the crease was needed, the visitors’ leading batsmen were a fleeting presence. It was an outcome that emerged from three factors — James Anderson and Stuart Broad’s penetrative bowling, the batsmen’s tentativeness and a startling failure to exhibit restraint when spinner Moeen Ali came into view. At close on the third day of the third Test here at the Ageas Bowl, India scored 323 for eight in its first innings, still 246 behind England’s 569. M.S. Dhoni (50 batting) and an…

    New York Yankees (Photo credit: Keith Allison) Amid a season where nothing has seemed to go their way, the New York Yankees finally received some well deserved luck the last two evenings in the Bronx. 1) On Monday morning, news broke that the Yankees had traded Yangervis Solarte and pitching prospect Rafael De Paula to the Padres in exchange for their All-Star third baseman Chase Headley. And the trade paid off immediately, as 30-year old Headley delivered the walk-off hit in the bottom of the 14th, putting an end to another painful, offensively anemic game at Yankees Stadium vs. the AL…

Right now, the Yankees are 47-47, five games back in the AL East compared to 3.5 games in the wild card. This leaves the Yankees in striking distance to get a postseason berth, but things have to improve. The Yankees will have to get better without ace Masahiro Tanaka for at least the next six weeks, but if Shane Greene’s arm continues to impress it could soften that blow a tad.

Ironically, it seemed almost proper that the Yankees lose, 3-1 to the AL East leading Baltimore Orioles in four and a half innings. It was the last game of the unofficial first half of this season. The rain-out leaves the Yankees at 47-47 heading into this All-Star Break, and puts them five games back from the top spot in the division. Mother Nature took the Yankees chance away to be to three games behind, which in turn means they would not be a mediocre,…

    Bey pulls out her signature move Beyoncé seems to always reassure us every time there are speculations about her and Jay-Z troubled marriage…or does she? The latest report on the Carters was that Beyoncé was seen apartment-shopping by herself. Hours after the apartment-hunting story made it all over the tabloids—Bey posted on Instagram a loving photo of Jay-Z and Blue Ivy on the beach “My favorite hue is Jay Z Blue,” read the caption. However, instead of Beyoncé posting pictures of her, Hov, and their daughter as ‘one big happy family’ on Instagram—…

    Lines filled with eager fans at Revolt Studios on Hollywood and Highland to get a good look at the Grammy nominated seductive R&B singer, Trey Songz. REVOLT Live co-hosts Sibley and DJ Damage urged the crowd to “make some noise” for Trey Songz. The fans did just that as Trey opened up with his hit single “Foreign” off his number one debut album “Trigga.” The crowd sang along to the catchy chorus and Trey was all smiles. Sibley and DJ Damage then came on to calm things done and ask Trey a few questions. When asked about his favorite place to perform Trey…

    29 Jul 2014 | 7:45 pm
    I’m sure Clay Buchholz is a good and decent man. He appears to be happily married with a 4-year-old daughter. He does a lot of charity work. He has never been considered a clubhouse distraction. I have come to the conclusion, however, that this should be his last year with the Red Sox, no matter what happens to Jon Lester. The ups and downs of Buchholz’s career are well-documented, from a no-hitter in his second major league start all the way to the very disappointing 2014 campaign. Despite a 63-39 overall record and a 3.81 ERA, the righty from Texas has had only one consistently…

  • Sox Get Pummeled in Series Opener with the Jays

    29 Jul 2014 | 2:48 pm
    The Red Sox keep finding new and even more horrible ways to lose games.  The only real glimmer the Sox has had in the last week or so was the epic offensive beat down they had on the Jays in the series opener up in Toronto.  Well it looks like the Jays wanted to give the Sox a taste of their medicine in completely destroying the team last night on way to a devastating 14-1 loss. Clay Buchholz was the starting pitcher for the Sox and he didn’t give much confidence that he could be someone leading the Sox rotation in years to come.  Buchholz gave up an early lead when he gave up a 2…

    28 Jul 2014 | 4:20 am
    The Red Sox hadn’t been able to win a game at the Trop yet in 2014, but the big bat of David Ortiz would take care of that yesterday.  The Sox had AAA pitcher Allen Webster on the mound who struggled his way through his outing, but the 3 runs that David Ortiz put on the scoreboard would end up just barely holding up. Allen Webster was tapped to take Jake Peavy’s spot in the game yesterday.  Webster has done well in AAA, but has historically struggled when up with the Red Sox.  Webster would end up getting the win, but it wasn’t a sharp outing.  Webster only allowed 3…

    The Texas Rangers are in the middle of a tremendously difficult season. But, earlier this evening, the worst team in the AL West found itself in a position to take a game from the New York Yankees. Leading 4-1 in the sixth inning, the Rangers were nearly there. Then, it all went to shit. Here’s how it all went down: 1. Carlos Beltran singles home two runs (Texas: 4, Yankees: 3, 1 out) 2. Brian McCann hits a sacrifice fly to score one run (Texas: 4, Yankees: 4, 2 outs) 3. Zoilo Almonte singles to score another run (Texas: 4, Yankees: 5, 2 outs) 4. Brendan Ryan doubles home two…

The question now becomes does Uruguay still have a chance at World Cup success without their star striker?

    Rumors emerged last night that the Cleveland Cavaliers have finally agreed to include Andrew Wiggins in any Kevin Love proposal. As a Wolves fan, this is the best case scenario assuming Love won't stay in Minnesota.Receiving a high-ceiling #1 overall pick, along with other young players and/or draft picks, gives the Wolves the best chance at building a consistent winner over the next few years. However, let's be clear here: Kevin Love is an elite player in basketball. If he were willing to resign with the Wolves rather than demanding a trade, he would't even be available. Cleveland wouldn't…

(Or, as it's correctly called everywhere else, Football) She received plenty of criticism for the article, and rightfully so. The article is terribly researched, and it reads like it was written in Greg Gutfeld's constant sarcastic idiocy.I'm not a soccer fan. Not at all. I enjoy watching the World Cup every four years, but that's it. However, the article she wrote isn't just silly, it's completely incorrect. It would be funny if it was satire.

It can be triggered with a simple song lyric or even driving by an old restaurant. Nostalgia happens. It's unavoidable.Unfortunately, Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor seems to live in nostalgia. Last off-season Taylor named former head coach Flip Saunders as the team's president, despite very little evidence suggesting Saunders would be well suited for the job.

    18 May 2014 | 10:59 am
    Kevin Love has been a darling of the advanced stats portion of NBA fans for years. His three point shooting percentages coupled with his ridiculous rebounding rate made Love extremely efficient on the offensive side of the ball. Now, of course, you don't have to believe in the advanced stats to know Kevin Love is considered one of the top players in the NBA.Despite all of Love's ability, however, he's been unable to lead the Timberwolves to the playoffs even once since being drafted in 2008. That isn't entirely his own fault of course, but this isn't baseball. One star player in the NBA can…

  • Five Ways the Utah Jazz Have Improved

    John English

    That 25-57 season is behind the Utah Jazz. It was a season of frustration, disappointment, tanking-not-tanking, a yeoman season to do what needed to be done to set up the franchise for the future. And so far, one thing they’ve done is get even younger. Lest we forget, Richard Jefferson was 3rd on the team in total minutes played last year. No one over 30 is going to crack the top seven for minutes played this year. Maybe that’s because Steve Novak is the only player on the roster over 30. But this will not be a second season of 25-57. The roster is pretty much set, and while it…

    John Baker's number should be retired after his night at Wrigley Field. The Cubs played the longest game in franchise history on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, winning in the 16th inning, when backup catcher John Baker pitched a scoreless top of the 16th, led off the bottom-half with a walk, and scored on a sacrifice fly. There are so very few chances for backup catchers to become legends. In 50 years, though, some grizzly fellow in the left-field bleachers will yell John Baker's name, and the crowd around him will toast frothy mugs of moon ale in his honor.

Since May 31 (this isn’t so much an arbitrary endpoint as it is when Dickerson finally became a full time player), he’s been a top-25 fantasy asset, one spot ahead of Miguel Cabrera (despite playing in six fewer games). If you prorate his numbers during that timeframe over a full season, you’d get this line: .319-96-29-96-22. If he qualified, Dickerson’s .978 OPS would rank third best in all of baseball. His .292/.361/.500…
  • Arizona CB Patrick Peterson announces huge new contract on Twitter

    29 Jul 2014 | 9:07 pm
    Like Seattle's Richard Sherman, Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson took to Twitter to announce his new contract, giving everyone the terms of the deal. And why wouldn't he want to share those contract details, considering they are astounding: Happy to announce my 5 year extension with @AZCardinals! $70M and $48M Guaranteed!! #AZCardinals #P2Nation #YearOfTheCardinal— Patrick Peterson (@RealPeterson21) July 30, 2014 Whoa. It's surprising Peterson didn't include Sherman's Twitter handle on that message, because the deal is a bit of a trump card in their little offseason war. If…
  • Seydou Keita refuses to shake hand with Pepe, throws water bottle at him before friendly

    29 Jul 2014 | 7:57 pm
    The preseason friendly between Roma and Real Madrid in Dallas, Texas brought back the ghost of Clasicos past when former Barcelona player Seydou Keita refused to shake hands with Pepe and then threw a water bottle at his head before the match. This prompted a stand-off between the two teams, but after a bit of discussion between Keita and Xabi Alonso, the match went ahead. Keita accused Pepe of calling him a monkey during the first leg of the Spanish Supercopa in 2011. According to the Fox broadcast for the Roma-Real Madrid match, the fourth official said that Pepe spat at Keita at some point…

  • ‘Moyes left me broken squad,’ Van Gaal

    29 Jul 2014 | 11:03 am
    LONDON, July 29- Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal thinks he has inherited an unbalanced and “broken” squad from David Moyes. Van Gaal, speaking in his first English media interview of United’s tour of the USA, denied the idea that succeeding Moyes would be easier than following Sir Alex Ferguson, who won 13 titles in 26 years at Old Trafford. In Van Gaal’s eyes, Ferguson left Moyes with a team of winners. He says he is inheriting a “broken” squad awash with attacking midfielders. “No,” Van Gaal said when asked whether following Ferguson…

    With fall camp slated to start in a week, coaches will try to get their team ready to match their fans expectations. First if you missed it yesterday, here are the five coaches that we believe are on the hot seat. Now here are 10 true freshman that I think will have an immediate impact this season. 1) Leonard Fournette – LSU Fournette is considered the number one RB in the class of 2014 and ESPN considers him the number one player in the class. With Jeremy Hill leaving early for the NFL and with LSU breaking in a new QB, the running game will be the primary focus this season. That means…

Well, Paul Klee of the Colorado Springs Gazette spoke with Vickerson and he had some choice words for the Seahawks. “(Bleep) Seattle,” Broncos defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson told me after practice on Monday. “Write it down.

    The brain and the body go hand-in-hand when it comes to performance. If you think a race is stressful, your body will react by being tense and tight. When you’re having fun your body is loose and relaxed. Therefore, relaxation for athletes is imperative for personal enjoyment and performance success. Practicing mindfulness is nothing new – top athletes all over the world use it.

  • How to Keep the Fun in Youth Sports

    Tom Layman
    24 Jul 2014 | 12:09 pm
    It was always the last thing my mother and father would say to me before dropping me off at soccer practice or any athletic endeavor I tried when I was a kid. They would say, sometimes shout as I sprinted towards the field, “Do well, and have fun!” It seems like such a simple concept when it comes to youth athletics. I mean, that alone should be the reason why kids are out there playing sports with their friends and getting in exercise as well. But fun seems to be finding its way out of youth sports, at least according to a study done by the Milken Institute School of Public Health at…

    My family is wrapping up one of the busiest seasons we’ve had. The summer time should be a time to unwind and relax, but for us, I have to admit, it has been a grind. And most of it has been self-induced. It’s probably the challenge that plagues most sports loving families. Multiple kids playing multiple sports. We did this all in the same season, instead of playing one sport…each season. Now, don’t get me wrong, while it was a grind I still have thoroughly enjoyed everything, and so have our kids. But we did reach a point where I think our entire family got burned…
  • 5 Core Values Every Youth Sports Team Should Have

    21 Jul 2014 | 11:00 pm
    If every youth sports team took the time to list their core values and then worked to implement them throughout the season, I think that things might look a bit differently in today’s youth sports culture. Coaches and parents are so busy buying uniforms, finding a place to practice, setting up volunteer lists, and organizing equipment that it’s way too easy for them to forget the value of youth sports. If you are a coach, or a parent with influence on your child’s team, it’s time to establish some team core values. These are my top 5, in no specific order: Strive for Excellence…

  • O-Line: The double team

    Brad DeHaven
    21 Jul 2014 | 1:17 am
    Teaching an offensive line to work together is the most vital part to the success of an offense. From pass blocking to picking up a blitzing defensive player, a lineman must be ready to help his fellow teammate. One key fundamental which I feel should be taught is the double team. This can be done between the center and guard, guard and tackle, as well as tackle and TE. In my opinion the double team starts from the split between the lineman. If the lineman are too far apart, it will take too long for them to work together. By the time they do get to a position where they can function as one,…

Here is part of Davis’ acceptance speech at the 2014 ESPY where he won ‘Best Play of the Year.’ I wish they had 10 more of these so I could give to my other teammates who were on the field at that time.” Without them.

    The Major League Baseball is at a very interesting of the season. The trade deadline is quickly approaching and teams will have to decide if they are buyers or sellers in this trade market. Teams that decide to sell off pieces will have to deal with clubhouses that are shocked by the move and young talent that is inserted into the lineup. Teams that are buys acquire new pieces but have to try and fit these players into the lineup with disruption. It is this kind of chemistry that can make or break a team down the stretch.

A second tip for me would be if your a little wary of a mass start, if you’re worried about being hit or getting swum over or something like that,…

However, as with any strength training programme for a specific sporting discipline, it is important that you focus on incorporating movements and lifts that are relevant to the mechanics of your sport.

The 3 inch inseam is short, almost a brief, but then there is no riding up leg of the fabric and the 6 inch inseam is comfortable, I really like the weight of the fabric, it is not heavy and manages moisture well, keeping comfortable in hot weather.

Even two weather delays and a shift to the starting lineup could not slow down the offense as the Pride put up 12 runs on 17 hits. “This team never stops amazing me. It doesn’t matter who we have in the line up, they find a way to get the job done,” said winning pitcher Cat Osterman. After the start time was delayed…

      During the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, the New Jersey Devils had six selections available to them. Many felt that the team should go after some scoring prospects, and leave the defensemen and goalies to other teams. Having Cory Schneider at the time primed to sign a long term contract extension, the team did not

    Richmond, VA – Diane Roberts and the Washington Redskins really made one fan’s day Monday when they helped a Silver Spring woman celebrate a milestone birthday while she was visiting her favorite team’s training camp. Roberts, who is with WUSA*9, was in Richmond covering the practice and found Melba Jackson in one of the tents with a sign that read: “Spending my 90th birthday with my team!” She alerted Tony Wyllie, Senior Vice President, Communications, about it and he set some wheels in motion that will stay in Jackson’s memories forever.

    Richmond, VA – Practices in full pads taking place during any given NFL training camp are always insightful. The Washington Redskins held a “full-pads” practice this morning… complete with full-fledged hitting, tackling to the ground, live drills, hard throws by the quarterbacks and scraps between players. In every phase of today’s exercises, the players showed that this 2014 Washington Redskins team has a real focus on physicality. Not that they weren’t always coached to be physical. But this team shows all around that in every facet, it’s about hitting, running hard to…

    Rookie wide out Hoffman has drawn the attention of players and coaches. RICHMOND VA – Wide out Cody Hoffman continues to impress in his first NFL training camp.  His size (6’4″, 210lbs.) is obvious when you see him on the field but the thing that really stands out is his hands.  He has a natural ability to take the ball out of the air and this could be a valuable asset for a team when they get inside of the redzone. Over the last four days the young wide receiver — who holds virtually every record at Brigham Young University — has demonstrated that he can pick up an…

    Richmond, VA – It’s a horribly boring phenomenon, the beating of a dead horse. But sometimes it’s required to put some perspective on a given situation. There’s no doubt about it though, this horse is dead… the Washington Redskins’ special teams unit was awful last season. No other words describe it adequately. The squad lost the team games and it was obvious the players weren’t happy with the system and perhaps, to a certain extent, the coach. There was no doubt that the special teams needed a huge boost for 2014. In 2014, however, along with a new head coach, came a new…

Scott and the Lakers are in the process of negotiating a contract. What took so long? The type of offense he will lead and length of the deal were the culprits and the main topics of conversation. Until recently, the Los Angeles Lakers were normally in the championship conversation. It has been four years since the Lakers hoisted the Larry O’Brien trophy. A turnaround and return to prominence will take time. Scott would like to lead…

    29 Jul 2014 | 3:00 pm
    John Beilein kicked the tires throughout the July evaluation period in search of a shooter to add to Michigan’s 2015-16 roster. He might have finally found one  in the most unlikely of places: Williams College. Williams is the top liberal arts college in the United States according to US News and World Reports and has just 2,052 undergraduates. Duncan Robinson was the NCAA Division III Freshman of the Year and a 4th Team All-American last season. He averaged 17 points and six rebounds per game and led Williams within a buzzer-beater of the Division III National Championship. Thanks to…

    The summer live period ended on Sunday as the final of three July evaluation periods wrapped up across the country. College coaches will spend much of the next month recalibrating their recruiting boards and sending out additional offers and setting up visits. For Michigan, that process even involves a Division III transfer. Prospects across the country will also retool their lists as they receive more and less interest from certain schools. After a long month of July, it’s clear that Michigan head coach John Beilein has prioritized 2016 big man Jon Teske. Teske was offered a scholarship on…

After all, in competition, the only people it matters to “outdo” are your opponents! Out working your teammates is great, but you’re not fighting against them in competition. I’m happy to say, she understood exactly what I was taking about The same is true for performance. It’s awesome if you’re the best on your team or in your league or even…

She did enough to keep her team in the game and stop any “big shots” from hurting her team. In short, she did a decent job as a pitcher. She was pitching outs. The only problem? Her team made error after error after error around her. Still, her demeanor, how she carried herself, how she…

  • The right way to handle praise and criticism

    3 Jul 2014 | 10:39 pm
    Share this article: Click Here to Tweet I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… Yes, I have a problem with credit seeking coaches who constantly want people to give THEM “credit where credit is due,” but don’t accept any of the blame when things go badly. You want “responsibility” for your athletes, take it ALL, not just the parts that make you look good. Better yet, do what Proactive Coaching suggests and coach with strength and humility. Coaching is not about who gets the credit. Coaching is about serving your athletes the best you can…

  • Betting Late Season MLB Overs at Coors Field

    Dave S
    26 Jul 2014 | 11:12 am
    For years Coors Field in Colorado has been notorious for being a hitter-friendly ballpark. These days it’s a rarity that we see the Colorado Rockies play a home game in which the total is less than 10 — an extreme anomaly considering that totals across baseball have been dropping. The main reason behind these high-scoring games and large totals is the thin air in the mile-high city. Higher altitudes lead to lower air density which has tremendous impact on both batted balls and pitched balls. Due to the reduced drag, balls travel significantly farther at Coors Field. In fact,…

No, every great performance becomes proof that a player is capable of playing that well again, which undoutedly makes him someone to invest in. But that's just not always the case. Sometimes, a great performance is a great performance and nothing more.I bring this up because Iman Shumpert had a curiously terrific game against…

Now this sounds like someone everyone who coaches competitive players would ignore, but the drills was a part of practice for his Olympic players.  The only difference was that for beginners you use a large target and for Olympians you have a very small target. The drill is simple and the results are fantastic, but maybe the biggest lesson is that this can be applied to many sports…

    By Jordan SchoonEver since David Kahn decided to not give Kevin Love the fattest, longest contract possible because he wanted to save the five-year max for Ricky Rubio, Timberwolves fans have dreaded the reckoning in 2015 when Love could opt-out of his contract to be an unrestricted free agent.  Due to poor drafting (hi Jonny Flynn and Wes Johnson, what's up Derrick Williams!), even worse player development, and being stuck in the grindhouse of the Western Conference, the Wolves' failure to make the playoffs during Kevin Love's tenure has brought down a "trade me or I'm leaving you for…

    By Jordan SchoonDespite losing its stranglehold on the crystal ball after a seven year period of dominance, the SEC was still college football's premier conference in 2013.  That may sound like a homerific statement to say on the surface, but it holds up even outside of my personal bias.  The conference placed seven teams in final AP Top 25 poll including three of the top five.  The next closest conference was the Pac-12 at six teams, but the closest to the top was Oregon at number nine.  For those who put weight into bowl results the conference finished with the best…

    By Jordan SchoonLife as a Cubs fan has never been easy and has rarely been enjoyable.  Most years the team is miserable, but even the best Cubs experiences end in brutal disappointment.  See the 2003 NLCS where I cried in my bed for a half hour after both the Bartman game and game seven, and the 2008 NLDS against the Dodgers where I literally smashed a Rubix Cube against the wall in frustration.  I have generally been on board with Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer's implosion and rebuild of the Cubs, but this summer I've spent way too much time in internal dialogue wondering whether…

    By Jess Samuels Every NFL offseason, there are at least a few changes that allow players to have new opportunities. From a fantasy football perspective, the most important changes happen at running back. This is where a player can turn into a star in a hurry just by having the right opportunity. Here is a look at a few players who could be poised for great 2014 seasons.Ben TateAfter spending his 1st few years in the NFL as a backup to Arian Foster, it is finally time to see what Ben Tate can do as a starting running back.

Yay! But atleast those 16  teams still have hope - even if it’s sliver sized - of winning the whole damn thing. Because, unfortunately, the 16 teams listed below have moved on to a better place. Well, at least most of them (looking at you, Honduras. Or should I say down at you).Since these teams have perished and gone towards the…

    College athletics are changing. You know that, and we know that. The NCAA even recognizes it. If there’s one school that embodies this change, and even more so, the reason behind it, it’s The University of North Carolina. It’s been over four years since Marvin Austin’s famous ‘Club Liv’ tweet (which, coincidently, is controversial for another reason too), and the University has undergone a number of changes that have been woefully underreported and underrated (see them here). But we’re the media and we like sensationalism, so it’s easy to…

A dream match up for the NHL in terms of big market teams, who are deserving of being here, battle it out for hockey’s grand prize. The Los Angeles Kings, the western conference representative, started the playoffs as a team that looked like it would be sent home just as fast it got there. Down three to zero in the best of seven series to the Sharks and getting seemingly dismantled every game. Even the most optimistic Kings fan didn’t…

    2 Jun 2014 | 10:50 am
    NYCFC, the newest club in the MLS which will play its games at Yankee Stadium starting next year, has signed two stars from Europe to open up the club roster in a big way. The first is David Villa, the Spanish striker who will be on the Spanish squad for the upcoming World Cup, was formerly on Atletico Madrid, a club that just won La Liga and made a deep run into the champions league. Villa’s move at the age of 32 comes as a little bit of a surprise as there were many clubs across Europe who still had interest in the striker who has scored many memorable goals in La Liga and for Spain.

  • Be Your Own Coach

    23 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
     Photo by Steven Casanova By Otesa Miles At Shaka Smart Basketball Camp, each group of 10 campers works with a dedicated, experienced basketball coach. The same is true when playing for teams from school, recreation centers and other organizations. But what should a young player do when they aren’t playing “organized” basketball? Be your own coach. That’s right. You are responsible for practicing what you’ve learned and working to get better. Here are some tips on coaching yourself: Figure out what needs improvement. Do you need to work on dribbling with your non-dominant hand?
  • Don’t Slide or Slump During the Summer

    16 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
      Photo by Steven Casanova By Otesa Miles Water slides and playgrounds slides are tons of fun. There’s one type of slide, however, that Shaka Smart Basketball Campers should avoid: the summer slide. Summer slide is when students forget some of what they’ve learned during the school year. This typically happens when young people don’t read, write, do math or conduct any science experiments when school is out for summer break. The summer slide, also called the “summer slump,” causes problems in the classroom because teachers often spend the first few weeks of school repeating lessons…

Coach Smart, VCU’s head basketball coach, and the camp coaching staff urge campers to practice, practice, practice which will help them become more comfortable with the ball and more adept at ball handling.

    22 Jul 2014 | 2:24 am
    It’d be quite the understatement to suggest that Tottenham’s transfer movements have as far this summer been quiet underwhelming, with the only major dealings being players leaving the lane, as opposed to players coming in, however, this may well prove to be the most efficient summer in recent years.Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino begins to shape his Spurs side.It’s well known that we’ve needed a minor clear-out, with many players failing to live up to the hype that their names hold, looking specifically at players such as Gylfi Sigurdsson and Benoit Assou-Ekotto, as well as a certain…

    After a less than impressive campaign, there aren’t too many players who fans would have a problem with leaving the club. Aside from the likes of Christian Eriksen and Hugo Lloris, whose performances have merited their popularity and support from the fans, there's one player, who seems to have all of our support, regardless of his performances on the pitch. Sandro.The self-proclaimed, ‘Beast’, joined Tottenham in March 2010 for around £8 Million from Internacional.

    We’re in a period of transition’, how often is this phrase thrown around? Whether it be a change in players, managers or even owners, ‘transition’ is undoubtedly an overused word in the current football world. But it has got me thinking, is ‘transition’ a legitimate period of time needed for clubs or is it just an excuse?As Tottenham fans, we're so typically used to hearing this phrase bouncing around.

    As Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas celebrated their inductions in Cooperstown this weekend, the Baseball Hall of Fame announced a change that will make it harder for others to join them. Instead of having 15 years of eligibility for consideration by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America (BBWAA), players will now be limited to 10.1One theory is that the change is designed to exclude players like Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, who are known or suspected to have used performance-enhancing drugs.2 But an attempt to target Bonds and Clemens could produce collateral damage.

One of those touches was a great opportunity to win the game near the end of regulation, which he failed to even put on goal. Despite this, and despite a decrease in goals and assists as the tournament progressed (four goals in his first three games, an assist in his fourth, and nary a goal or assist since), he won the World Cup’s Golden Ball award (essentially the tournament MVP).

    It’s not everyday you see barehanded plays in baseball and it’s definitely something that you don’t learn in Little League. As players become more and more experienced, they build the hand-eye coordination that allows them to do this when time is running out to make a play. Earlier today Andrelton Simmons made a fantastic barehanded […] The post Watch Brewers Segura and Reynolds Master The Barehanded Relay Out appeared first on Champs Nation.

  • Michele Roberts Named Executive Director Of NBPA

    Alex Lowe

    18 months after ousting Billy Hunter, the National Basketball Players Association has elected Michele Roberts as the new executive director. Roberts received 32 of a possible 36 votes. Roberts, a D.C. public defender with a reputation for being a ruthless litigator, beat out two other finalists. The Association was likely looking for someone ruthless after suffering defeat in the 2011 negotiations, and really defeats over the last 15 years. Another selling point for Roberts was the fact she plans to reshape the union with a new leadership team. Chris Paul, president of the Association, spoke…

    The advent of the MLB Wild Card game brought more to the game of baseball than a 163rd game every season. With one more team “making the playoffs” each year, or at least having a real chance to make the playoffs proper, teams see the light at the end of the tunnel and don’t feel the pressure to sell at the deadline like years gone by. When the July 31st trade deadline rolled around, teams more than a couple games out of contention became sellers. There was a much clearer buyer/seller line for a general manager to use. Now, sitting 4.5 games out of the second wild card…

    Alex Lowe
    27 Jul 2014 | 11:22 am
    As a child in the ’90s, baseball was king and the era’s best players were superheroes to me. I didn’t get into comic books until I was much older, so I never spent my youth pretending to be Spider-Man or Batman. No, I spent hours in the backyard pretending to be the great players of the MLB. Cal Ripken Jr., Sammy Sosa, and Chipper Jones were some of the many hitters I imagined myself to be when playing wiffle ball in the side lot. But when it came my turn to step onto the mound, I was only ever one pitcher: Greg Maddux. Despite being born outside Chicago, I grew up a…

This comes after a season in which caught eight touchdowns and went for over 1300 yards, numbers which ranked him 16th and 10th in the league respectively. Nelson was only set to make $3.5 million in 2014, which was the final season of his contract with Green Bay. Even though his paychecks will be drastically larger, the Packers may still be getting a huge bargain here. Last season, the Dolphins signed Mike Wallace to a 5-year, $60-million contract.

When training in the RR, you will notice the separated big toe a bit, but the sensation is not detrimental to performance. The ride is balanced, and allows the foot to make full contact with the ground at both slower and faster speeds. While not necessarily a “minimalist” shoe by purist definition, the RR allows for plenty of ground feel on both the road and packed dirt surfaces. Because of…

Don’t love it…but its so minor, honestly who cares? Many feel that losing Danny Valencia means losing a good right handed hitter, which is true. There are always two sides to a coin however, and this year has taught us that while we are losing his bat, the defense first minded Royals are also losing his glove.

    It can almost be expected when you remember that Ned Yost puts out his “white flag” lineup each and every Sunday. While the season finale loss was frustrating, Royals fans must remember to think about the big picture. Carlos Santana homered two more times and the Indians finally broke out of their slump, ending the Royals’ five-game winning streak with a 10-3 win on Sunday afternoon. The Indians salvaged the series in what was their first win at Kauffman Stadium all season (1-5). Things began well enough for Kansas City.

    In the middle of the second inning, I thought the game was over. The Indians had a five run lead, and the offense looked to be dormant. Kansas City started chipping in the third inning, and tied it in the fourth. Carlos “The One Man Wrecking Crew” Santana, and the Cleveland Indians put a five spot on the board in the second inning. The inning scoring in the second inning started with a Carlos Santana big fly to give the Indians a 1-0 lead. With two outs, it would appear to the Royals that Guthrie had limited the damage. Alas, the Indians would go on to score four more runs that…

The first Royals base runner came in the seventh when Omar Infante singled, but was stranded. The first of two Royals runs came in the eighth inning when Mike Moustakas hit a little league homerun. It was ruled a double and a two-base throwing error, and was charged as an unearned run to Corey Kluber. The Royals were poised to end the game in the ninth when All Star Greg Holland blew the save for the second time this year. The score would stand pat for the…

    29 Jul 2014 | 8:50 pm
    Cleveland, OH– Cleveland Browns Wide Receiver Josh Gordon will argue that his marijuana charge was caused by secondhand smoke. Gordon is in the appealing process after a year-long conviction is in order. “Dude, I wasn’t the only one who has ever been around pot, yeah I used to smoke, but not this time,” Gordon explained to the press before his agent put his hand in front of Gordon’s mouth. Despite Gordon’s failed efforts to convince the NFL otherwise, he hopes that his legal team will prove his innocence. Tests done on the night of the incident could be inaccurate due to…

    New York, NY– It’s that time again. Every year the NFL owners knee-jerk their way into several rule changes for reasons unknown, and why should 2014 be any different? Although the majority of the rule changes are small and seemingly mundane, there are a few every year that make NFL fans feeling like the world is ending, scratching their heads in disbelief. Let’s take a look at some of the more disconcerting NFL rule changes that have occurred between this season and last: 1.

  • Your Guide to the NFL’s Lesser-Known Finable Offenses

    Ryan Graham
    29 Jul 2014 | 12:20 pm
    Last week, Ben Volin of the Boston Globe tweeted a comprehensive list of the various finable offenses for NFL players. The list, which comes from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, covers several infractions including fighting, uniform violations and illegal hits. It gives the standard fines for both a player’s first and second offenses. However, this list only covers the league’s most common offenses. The complete list is much longer and more obscure. Wondering what else is on the list that could possible invoke an NFL-sanctioned fine? Lucky for you! We have compiled a list of the…

    San Francisco, CA– Entering training camp, Runningback was one of the San Francisco 49ers’ stronger positions. A depth chart that boasted Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, Marcus Lattimore, Lamichael James along with rookies Carlos Hyde and Jewel Hampton would make any defense weary. The 49ers find themselves a little thinner at Runningback now than in previous weeks, with Kendall Hunter tearing his ACL and Lamichael James dislocating his left elbow in the very early stages of training camp. This is Lamichel James’ third elbow dislocation on his left arm dating back to high school, along with…

    28 Jul 2014 | 8:57 pm
    Green Bay, WI– It comes as almost no surprise anymore. Aaron Rodgers just doesn’t go to training camp. Plain and simple. He has found that his best practice comes from off the field, and off the practice field especially. The MVP quarterback has made it a personal tradition to use his time during the Packers’ strict 17 day training schedule to sit around, veg out and play as much MADDEN NFL as possible. Mike McCarthy said it has been the ritual every late August since Aaron Rodgers led the Pack to a victory in Super Bowl XLV following the 2010 season. Rodgers claims otherwise. “You…
