    Everyone likes a good mystery, and the best one around right now involves the leak of hundreds of celebrity nudes onto the internet. The prevailing theory is that some hacker cracked Apple's iCloud service and then uploaded the nudes to the image-based bulletin board 4chan. We suspect that's not what happened, for reasons laid out below. It's a little involved, but the actual story here, as far as we can put it together, is a lot more interesting than it initially seems.Read more...

    29 Aug 2014 | 3:21 am
    I am on record here saying that the 2-game suspension given to Ray Rice after his “domestic violence event” was meager. I said the NFL was tone-deaf sending one of its VPs on ESPN Radio to declare that the NFL had taken a tough stance with regard to domestic violence. I said that Ravens’ fans were out of line cheering for Rice when he first stepped onto a practice field. I mention all of that because I want to be clear where I stand with regard to that issue. The only reason I need to mention this again is in the wake of the season-long suspension for Cleveland Browns WR, Josh Gordon.

Green-Ellis is known for his hard running style but recently has declined since his first season with the Bengals when he averaged 3.9 yards per carry. In his second season with the Bengals, he only averaged 3.4 yards per carry, but the stats do not tell the whole story. He did not look like the same back the entire season. Could this just come from the arrival of up and coming back Giovani Bernard?…

    Alex Smith has agreed to a four year contract extension, according to Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star.  The deal is four years, $68 million, with a reported guarantee amount of $45 million. Is this the real guarantee amount? We saw the Colin Kaepernick deal get initially reported as $61 million in guaranteed money only to be nothing of the sort. However, Pro Football Talk is reporting that it is $30 million guaranteed at initial signing, with $15 million more vesting next offseason, as an injury-only guarantee.

Per ESPN’s Tania Ganguli, Mallett fetched a sixth round pick; the quarterback is reunited with his former offensive coordinator from New England, Bill O’Brien. Presumably, Mallett will be behind starter Ryan Fitzpatrick on Houston’s depth chart for the time being; Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole expects the team to cut Case Keenum, and keep third-stringer Tom Savage on the roster.

    Michael Sam has cleared waivers, and is a free agent. He’s able to sign on any team’s practice squad; at this point, it feels like the Rams are most likely because Sam knows the system. Though the team has a very deep defensive line, which was ultimately what doomed the seventh round pick’s chances to make the 53-man roster, Sam’s productivity in the preseason would purportedly make the team comfortable with slotting him in later in the year in the event of injuries.

This week, there’s a good chance that he’s going to be the guy pissing off all of the fans of John Carpenter’s Escape movies, because the reboot that we were warned about in 2013 is still happening, and the hot “SOURCES!” rumor of the day has Hunnam as the studio hopeful to bro walk the president to safety in Escape from New York. Still in the hands of producer Joel Silver and…

    1 Sep 2014 | 8:00 am
    There was a bit of a kerfuffle on the Game of Thrones set in Croatia last week. As you make recall, the Croatian film commission had objected to a particularly important scene in the upcoming fifth season because it features a very naked Cersei Lannister in a fictional Westeros church, which would require the show to film a very naked Lena Headey inside a very real church in the deeply religious town of Dubrovnik, Croatia. Well, it appears the two sides have reached a compromise. Sayeth TMZ: By order of the Croatian film commission, Cersei … played by Lena Headey … now hath the…

Good thing the Rams cut what would be the first openly gay player to be on a final NFL roster in their last round of roster cuts. Michael Sam led the team in sacks in the preseason, which is nice and will surely be a much-cited stat in the coming days, even if it really doesn’t mean all that much as to whether or not he should make the team.

    1 Sep 2014 | 7:50 am
    Tony Stewart has one final shot to make the Chase, and it's not a very good one: He must win Saturday night at Richmond, where he last visited Victory Lane in 2002.

    27 Aug 2014 | 11:01 am
    "I've never seen it this big""Dad, even you aren't good enough to surf these waves""Whoa, I can't believe it's so big.""I'm just glad we found parking."These were someone of the conversations taking place on the sand while The Wedge in Newport Beach put on a show for locals and tourists alike. Waves were in the 20-30ft. range and provided challenging situations for surfers and bodyboarders alike. Jamie O'Brien has since become a Wedge local and caught a couple big sets, before snapping his Catch Surfboard!By 8am, the surrounding streets and alleys closely resembled the 405 Freeway as people…
  • The Swell of The Decade?

    26 Aug 2014 | 8:22 am
    As a major south swell is schedule to arrive later tonight and peak tomorrow, surfers up and down the California coast are preparing for some major surf. Many forecasters are reporting that this will be one of the biggest swells to hit our coastline in more than a decade. Is this hype? Only time will tell.  While all of this is very exciting, it is also important to remember that the ocean is very powerful and surf conditions can change quite rapidly. Rip currents will look more like rivers and side shore currents will surely pose a challenge to swimmers, bodyboarders and surfers alike.
  • Gabriel Medina Wins the 2014 Billabong Pro Tahiti

    25 Aug 2014 | 7:38 pm
    For me personally, the 2014 Billabong Pro Tahiti is one of my favorite stops on the WCT each year. Especially when a solid swell presents itself; something which pushes many professional surfers outside of their comfort zones. This year was no different as the waves were stellar and the top surfers really put on a show.Of course, this included some heavy wipeouts, serious injuries and crucial rescues during the peak of the swell as those in the water were dedicated to charging hard. While Teahupoo can be a punishing wave for those who ride it, it surely creates an exciting event for…
  • Newport Beach Wedge | August 23 2014

    23 Aug 2014 | 4:44 pm
    While the Wedge in Newport Beach may have looked more like a playful and fun beach break this morning which was spitting out perfect barrels for those who ventured into the lineup, one must also remember how dangerous of a spot it really is. With heavy closeouts breaking in waist deep water, wonky backwash and unpredictable sneaker sets, the wedge is a fun, scary and hard to predict beast. The lineup was extremely crowded with local standouts like Dylan Cotton and top professionals including Jamie O'Brien; both of which were absolutely charging! All photos by Chase Miller

    Sports Are 80 Percent Mental

  • Maybe Your Kids Inherited Your Couch Potato Genes

    26 Aug 2014 | 8:26 am
    On the road to sports success, young athletes need two ingredients, innate skills and the willingness and determination to get better.  We all know boys and girls who showed early promise that got them noticed but then didn’t have the drive to practice every day to develop that talent.  Often labeled lazy or unmotivated, the assumption was that they chose their own path by not working hard.  However, new research shows evidence that genetics may play a role not only in the natural abilities of a developing superstar but also in their practice persistence and…
  • See The Game Through The Eyes Of The Quarterback

    6 Aug 2014 | 1:57 pm
    Going into the start of football season, there is plenty of expert commentary on what makes up the “right stuff” when evaluating quarterbacks. Everything from arm strength to height to foot skills to the size of their hands was measured and dissected to find the magic combination of variables. While the body mechanics of delivering a football on target are vital, QBs rely even more on their vision both before and after the ball is snapped.It’s not just knowing where and when to look at an opposing defense but also understanding what to look for across the line. Defensive players are…
  • How To Train The Runner's Brain - An Interview With Jason Fitzgerald

    5 Jun 2014 | 10:49 am
    As productive human athletes, we just assume that we can knock down any walls put in front of us and conquer new feats of greatness if "we just put our mind to it."  Our conscious brain sets goals, gives pep talks and convinces us that with the right training plan, we can finish a race of any distance. But, when we're stretching our training run farther than ever before, the little voice in our head pops up to try to talk some sense into us; "that's enough for today" or "there's a lot of pain happening right now, time to quit."  As I discussed in last week's post about the…
  • Fight Fatigue By Overriding Your Brain's Urge To Quit

    29 May 2014 | 1:44 pm
    What makes an endurance athlete quit? Not quit the sport, but quit during a competition.  Every runner, swimmer, or cyclist starts a race with the desire to win or at least achieve a personal best time.  They’ve done the pre-race math - keep at a certain pace for the entire distance to achieve the target time.  Their wearable technology keeps them updated on heart rate, distance and split times to stay on that pace.  However, at the finish line, many athletes are not able to maintain their strides/strokes per minute, giving in to the perception that their energy tank is…

Everything is going to boil down to your mental game and you will always play up the imag you have of the match and your opponent.  Many players know how to play the game, but very few know how to play the mental game. The ones that do, are the ones that become Champions. The rest become good at losing and making excuses.  Which category are you in now?  Champions have mastered the mental game by learning to control their fears and dominating their emotions.  I have been studying the mental aspect…
  • Which Big Business Makes A Good Race Sponsor?

    Eitan Hefetz
    22 Aug 2014 | 9:59 am
    With sponsorship spending on endurance sports events exceeding the $108 million per year, its no wonder big business is sponsoring these events. The mid-to-high socio-economic class of endurance events participants attracts many brands to sponsor endurance events. Interestingly enough many of these big business brands are not the typical sporting brands one would expect to find. Would a laundry detergent brand make a good running race sponsor? How about a deodorant brand or a cellular carrier? Putting your brand’s logo in front of your target audience is one thing, while tying your…

  • Financial Planning and Pro Athletes: Players In Investment Trouble

    Steve Richards
    31 Jul 2014 | 9:15 am
    On the topic of financial planning, American economist Paul Samuelson once said, “Investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grow. If you want excitement, take $800 and go to Las Vegas.” Of course, some athletes have no problems going to Vegas, and they take a lot more than $800 with them. For example, golfer John Daly once claimed that he lost between $50 million and $60 million on bad bets. If the rest of us had $50 million to lose, we’d probably invest in the stock market. In fact, a lot of athletes invest their millions in securities or in business ventures.

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.

    Patrick Maks

    With a nighttime bout against Virginia Tech looming this weekend, Urban Meyer met with the media Monday to talk the Hokies, Saturday's game against Navy, quarterback J.T. Barrett, the offensive line and more.  Meyer said Ohio State was “very poor in the first half” offensively. The Buckeyes entered intermission with a pair of field goals before exploding for 28 points in the second half. Meyer said redshirt freshman tight end Marcus Baugh is suspended for two games. Baugh did not make the trip to play Navy and will miss Saturday’s game against Virginia Tech. The grounds for suspension?

    Trailing Navy by 1 with 4:21 in the third quarter, the Ohio State Buckeyes and new quarterback J.T. Barrett had yet to truly test the Midshipmen secondary, instead opting for mostly quick passes and screens to that point. Though the Buckeyes had moderate success running the ball, especially on the outside, the Navy defense had begun cheating up toward the line, nearly intercepting a screen pass at one point. Fans and announcers alike had begun wondering, 'when will the Buckeyes throw it deep?' After seeing some success with the outside running game, mainly coming from jet sweeps and 'stretch'…

    1 Sep 2014 | 7:45 am
    J.T. Barrett did about as well as could be asked from a redshirt freshman making his first collegiate start on the road against a quality foe like Navy. It was good enough to earn him Co-Freshman of the Week honors. Barrett made some freshman mistakes, but overall, the Wichita Falls, Texas product shined on the day. Barrett completed 12 of 15 passes for 226 yards, and he chipped in a team-leading 50 yards on the ground. According to a release from Ohio State, Barrett's last four passes alone went for 130 yards and two touchdowns. It's Ohio State's first Freshman of the Week since Dontre…

    While Ohio State pulled away from Navy, several former Buckeyes received word that they were cut by their professional teams. Saturday was the deadline for NFL organizations to cut their rosters down to 53 players. In total, 20 ex-OSU players were waived in the buildup to the regular season. The most notable of those was the only Buckeye quarterback in the NFL. Seattle Waives Pryor After withering away on the Raiders' bench the second half of last season – behind Matt McGloin, no less – Oakland officially gave up on Pryor in April.  The Seahawks stepped in as trade partners, eager to…
  • For Dontre Wilson to Be Spectacular, He Simply Must Be Effective

    Patrick Maks
    1 Sep 2014 | 5:35 am
    Dontre Wilson looked like one of Ohio State’s premier playmakers Saturday, but he didn’t do anything particularly spectacular. That’s because he didn’t need to. In a 34-17 win against Navy, Wilson had 166 all-purpose yards (43 rushing, 46 receiving and 77 on punt/kick returns) and glided across the field with a certain combination of speed and power that he didn’t possess his freshman season. Yeah, we get it: Wilson is really fast. But now he’s apparently added 15-20 pounds of muscle to a once skinny frame. He can hurt you outside on a jet sweep, or up the middle on an inside…

    Well, it's almost time to get back at it so... a couple thoughts. First off, I love Twitter.

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.

Grossman will become the Browns third string signal caller and become a mentor of sorts for QB’s Johnny Football and Brian Hoyer as they try to learn the Shanahan offensive system. I don’t think Grossman has much left as a player, but I think this is a good signing for the Browns. The biggest…

After twenty minutes of pretty much the worst basketball you’ll ever see from Team USA, Turkey led 40-35 at halftime. Then, Anthony Davis, who sat most of the first half…

    In Spain, the first division league was dominated by the two of the biggest club in Europe throughout the last decade. Barcelona and Real Madrid dominated the La Liga in Spain until last season, when the underdogs Atletico Madrid clinched the title in dramatic fashion. It was highly unlikely result given the fire power that was possessed by the likes of Barcelona and Real. Many believed that Atletico was the team of the year last season. Their resilience and team work outshined their major rivals and beat them to the domestic crown. As heartbreaking as it was for Real and Barca, the triumph…

  • Is the US Open Roger Federer’s Chance at Another Grand Slam?

    Richard Murray
    15 Aug 2014 | 1:45 am
    The 2014 US Open is shaping up to be a very interesting tournament.  For me the main storyline is Roger Federer and his chance for another Grand Slam title.  Roger was so close at Wimbledon, losing an amazing 5 setter to world number 1 Novak Djokovic.  Going into that 5th set many fans though this was Roger’s chance at another Grand Slam, but it wasn’t to be.  I for one though still think he has a shot in a few more and his form right now leads me to believe he has a chance at the upcoming US Open.

    You’d expect a certain level of care at a gym, wouldn’t you?

What’s more nearly a quarter of gyms have a poor understanding of suggested safety guidelines from Fitness Australia which have been designed to improve industry standards across the nation. The results come from a survey of more than 1,100 people working in the industry, and also discovered that 44 per cent say free weights aren’t being put away properly,…

    Andrew Kartchner

    Make no bones about it, BYU’s road win Friday night against UConn was ugly. But the train wreck that was 15 penalties for 150 yards could turn into a positive for the Cougars going forward. Here’s why. Beating up on an inferior opponent–and make no mistake, UConn was a vastly inferior team–can mask a team’s weaknesses. That’s why Bronco Mendenhall said after the game that getting the win in sloppy fashion may actually be a good thing; it gives the team clear areas to work on without going home with loss. And BYU has plenty of room for improvement,…

History: BYU football has never faced UCONN but that does not mean that there is no history. After a dismal 2013 campaign, UCONN hired new head coach Bob Diaco. Who is Bob Diaco? Diaco was the defensive coordinator for Notre Dame from 2009-2013. In 2012 he won the award for the nation’s top assistant coach after leading ND to the 2nd best defense…

We all know that Idaho State is a warm-up game against a FCS team that the Utes scheduled much like every other Power 5 school does the first week, so it’s an obvious win. But given that it’s a win, what will the Utes need to accomplish in order to feel that this first game is a success? In my opinion, if Utah does not accomplish all of the following, they can consider this game a loss: Tempo – Under Dave Christiansen, the Utes are looking to improve…

So, of course, Arsene Wenger is making a massive bid for a player who is neither. According to Joaquin Maroto of Spanish newspaper AS, Arsenal made a deadline day bid of £31.7m for Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus. BVB have rejected the offer. Reus is the type of star that any club would want regardless of their need for a winger or lack thereof, but it's very surprising that this is where Arsenal has focused their attention. They were…
  • Richard Gasquet had an impressive sweat problem at the U.S. Open

    This is awesome, and gross. Gasquet's sweat almost shuts down Louis Armstrong — Ricky Dimon (@RD_Tennistalk) September 1, 2014 Sweating is a part of any athletic endeavor, but Richard Gasquet raised the bar (and possibly his arms) with the biggest sweat trail we've seen. It's hard to work out exactly what we're looking at. It appears these are footprints, which means there was so much sweat that it ran down Gasquet's legs, was too much for his socks, soaked his shoes and finally made it onto the court. It looks like one of those cartoon dance sequences.
  • Rob Gronkowski will play Week 1 for Patriots

    1 Sep 2014 | 9:31 am
    According to New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, he is ready to go for his team's Week 1 tilt against the Miami Dolphins. Tight end Rob Gronkowski says he will suit up for the New England Patriots' Week 1 game, according to Tom E. Curran of CSN New England. Gronkowski tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee during a game against the Cleveland Browns on Dec. 8, 2013. The tight end underwent reconstructive knee surgery the following month and began his rehab process soon after. Assuming the accuracy of Curran's report, Gronkowski's return represents great news for the Patriots. He led…
  • Tottenham Hotspur sign Benjamin Stambouli from Montpellier

    1 Sep 2014 | 9:29 am
    Mauricio Pochettino has been asking for a defensive midfielder and Spurs have gone out to get him one. Tottenham Hotspur have added another midfielder, signing Benjamin Stambouli from Montpellier. The deal is for a reported £4.7 million and will give Mauricio Pochettino the extra body in the center of the pitch that he's been craving. Spurs were originally linked to Morgan Schneiderlin, which made sense considering he played for Pochettino at Southampton, but the Saints weren't willing to sell. It looked like Tottenham may not sign another midfielder, but Pochettino insisted he needed one…
  • Texas QB David Ash won't play vs. BYU, return 'not ruled out'

    1 Sep 2014 | 9:29 am
    Tyrone Swoopes will start in his place against the Cougars. Texas quarterback David Ash will not play in the Longhorns' Week 2 contest against BYU, head coach Charlie Strong told reporters Monday. Ash has struggled with concussion issues throughout his career in Austin, missing most of the 2013 season. He was hit hard early in the Longhorns' opening week victory over North Texas, and while Strong declined to offer details on the situation, the quarterback's history with head injuries makes that a prime candidate. To clarify, Ash showed no symptoms for concussion during game. But some causes…

  • Arsenal Need To Break Bank For Cavani And Carvalho, Says Former Gunner

Last season, Cavani scored 16 league goals for Paris Saint-Germain and the club have reportedly slapped a 50million price-tag on the Uruguayan hotshot. Despite the figure, Parlour believes the signing would ease the Gunners attacking woes, which were emphasised in the 1-1 draw against newly-promoted Leicester City.

    Shinji Kagawa has returned to Borussia Dortmund after two long seasons of being imprisoned on Manchester United's bench and the universe is now a better place for it. One look at the incandescent smiles on the faces of Kagawa and Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp tells you all you need to know about the joy this move has brought. If the sun is shining in your part of the world today, this is why. (If it's not, that's probably your fault.)

    The best finish from the first weekend of the season came from the FCS level. Trailing 17-16 with 1.6 seconds left on the clock at home against Florida A&M, Jackson State needed a miracle. From the FAMU 49-yard line, JSU sophomore quarterback LaMontiez Ivy took a shotgun snap and surveyed in the pocket for a few seconds to allow his receivers to get down field. Ivy then launched a Hail Mary pass that fell a few yards short of the goal line. Miraculously. after about four deflections, the ball fell into the waiting arms of junior receiver DeSean McKenzie in the endzone for the game-winning…

A's pitcher Scott Kazmir says Davis was reprimanded by Major League Baseball for being unprofessional during Oakland's loss Saturday night to the Los Angeles Angels, the third leg of a four-game series sweep. More damning than making faces, Kazmir questioned whether Davis being called out by his superiors affected how he called balls and strikes Sunday afternoon. Via the San Francisco Chronicle:…

That that means, with four round-of-16 matches on tap for Monday, that the only two current Grand Slam champions in the draw are relegated to Louis Armstrong Stadium. Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic and Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka – a very low-key presence so far in this tournament – are there. Why?

Without flinching, my brother smacked that wiffle ball out of our yard, across the street and into the tree tops of our neighbors. In the history of baseball there has probably never been a pitcher who celebrated an opposing player’s home run like I did that day. But when my brother hit that home run, the…

    It’s that time of year again. While running in the morning with my wife I see the school buses driving through our neighborhood. We see parents waving good-bye as the kids head off to school. Back to school is here! It’s the time to get readjusted to having schedules and various activities that were on hiatus over summer break. For the youth athlete it can also mean getting ready for tryouts or preseason workouts. While this happens every year, each year still brings something new and exciting, and your kids can use your help adjusting to it all. Whether your kids can drive to and…

    It's a Friday before a holiday weekend, which also happens to be the first one of the college football season. My picks for Thursday were abysmal and I was only saved from going zero for the night by an expected blowout win by Arizona State. So I have to come back from a 1 - 3 start, but it's a long season and hope springs eternal.College Football Kicks Off: As I watched Texas A&M dismantle South Carolina last night, I couldn't help but wonder whether the Aggies are that good or if the Gamecocks are a bit overrated. If it's the former, then the rest of the SEC West had better be on…

    Obviously, It’s All About Winning:Let’s see, Bobby Petrino is now the head football coach at the University of Louisville, which begins its first season in the ACC. No big deal, right? I mean let’s face it, the guy can flat out recruit and coach football players. His teams win, and win in exciting fashion. They must really like him at Louisville, considering they hired him for the second time after taking the Cardinals to four bowl games and leading them to two top ten national rankings in four seasons from 2003 – 2006.But now this is where it gets interesting. Petrino, despite…

    After over seven months of having to convince ourselves that the NBA, early season Major League Baseball, golf's four major championships, hockey and even the World Cup somehow passed for sports, it's time for what we've been craving since Florida State's exciting victory over Auburn. COLLEGE FOOTBALL!And to think that finally, the conclusion to the upcoming season will be a four team (soon to be eight teams) playoff that will give us a true champion of the sport. Florida State goes into the season as the odds on favorite, but that's usually just a kiss of death. But if the Seminoles can get…

    RUSSIA, REALLY?: Today, American Vic Wild won his second snowboarding gold medal of the Olympic Games while competing for Russia. Wild, who married a Russian Olympian, is nothing short of a total athletic traitor. I'm sure Wild would maintain he has the right to do whatever he wants within the rules of international competition. I maintain that I have the right to voice whatever opinion I have of his reprehensible decision. I don't know much about his background or history, but I'm pretty sure he benefited greatly from the freedom and opportunity our great country has to offer. This smells…

    BIG SURPRISE?: So the Canadians have kicked serious you know what in hockey and curling at the Olympics. Both sports involve a lot of ice, something that last time I checked, doesn't naturally exist in a large part of the United States at anytime during the year. But what's really interesting is that the national sport of our wonderful neighbors to the north is neither of the sports at which they excelled in Sochi. Most Americans would probably be surprised to hear that lacrosse is Canada's national sport. Of course, most Americans would probably be surprised to hear anything about lacrosse,…

    A few months back I had a trainer approach me to see if I might be interested in reviewing his speed product.  These types of requests are commonplace in the industry, and I’m always looking to expand my current knowledge base and learn something new.

  • Receiver Skills Are Many, Getting Off The Jam is One

    Brad DeHaven
    10 Aug 2014 | 1:55 am
    Playing the position of receiver requires skills such as good hand-eye coordination, great balance, explosive lower body strength, good agility, and great athleticism just to name a few. One of the most important fundamentals that will help take any receiver to another level is the ability to get off the line of scrimmage against a man defender. Here’s a link to 22 minute teaching video for receivers to get off of press coverage.  At the youth or high school level you don’t often encounter man coverage, however, learning how to get off the line of scrimmage versus a man defender is a…

  • 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,…

There is a lot I like about fall.  There is the awesome weather, all of the new television shows start, and of course it kicks off football season!  Even if you are not a huge football fan, you are bound to take place in some tailgating and will probably attend a social gathering where everyone is watching and cheering on their team. So it is essential that you look the part!  A few good pieces can get you through a season.  (Unless you are my like my husband who thinks he needs 15 short sleeve UNC T-shirts and a closet full of Titan gear!)…

I love the experience of running in different cities. The runs in Orlando were quite different than my last work trip to Philly in February. There I got to have a beautiful run in the snow. (Real snow, not ice by the way). I have to say that the humidity in Orlando, wow, it was beyond humid. I would refer to it as swampy.  (Note to self, don’t do Disney World with the kids…

Second in line of my favorites I would say is definitely Brooks. I have had a few pairs of the Ghost and the Glycerin through the years.  A few months ago I bought both a pair of Saucony Triumphs and a pair of Brooks Glycerin. Both are great shoes with a lot of cushioning.  They are top of the line for both brands, and worth every penny. My issue with the last…

    One very important aspect of making running enjoyable is having the right running gear. Not only do you want to look good but you want to choose things that are practical. Let’s face it, many of us have a long list of things we want…and those of us with kids often have to put those things at the end of the list. So when it does come time to buy running clothes you want to spend your money on things you can get the most use out of. Without a doubt what I have the most of are good, longer length, dri-fit type running tanks. First let me address the longer description. Luckily almost all…

Not because he has not been the biggest story coming out of Washington besides the nonsense that happens on Capitol Hill. Not because I do not like him. The Washington Redskins quarterback has captivated this town in both good and in bad ways. His presence on the team has been a marketing boom and a public relations nightmare all in the same breath.

The Washington Redskins’ coaching staff must cut as many as 20 guys from the team by 4:00 p.m. tomorrow and they have some very tough decisions to make. This year, the NFL increased the number of players on the practice squad from eight to 10 which is somewhat helpful. But there is more talent on this squad than we’ve seen in a long time at this time of the year. Predicting Washington’s final 53-man roster was not easy.

There have been fans’ phone calls to local sports talk radio about how out-of-sync the offense looked. On film it’s apparent that the offensive line could have been more effective. But,…

Coach Urban Meyer started this as a rite of passage. Those that perform well during training can have their stripes removed and finally become part of the team. This year, the first freshmen to get their stripes off were Raekwon McMillan and Curtis Samuel -- a linebacker and a running back, respectively. Coach Meyer has been very vocal about these recruits who have impressed him with their performance since they got on the campus field.

    Tracy Sprinkle, the former high school football star from Elyria, was hit with a 1-game suspension, but has been reinstated to Ohio State. OSU announced last Tuesday that they were reinstating the dismissed defensive end. He now must serve a 1-game suspension. The former high school football giant received his dismissal in July from head coach Urban Myer. This was the result of Tracy Sprinkle being arrested in connection with a bar fight in Northeast Ohio, which also led to charges that included cocaine possession. The football star pleaded 'no contest' in the face of an amended misdemeanor…

  • Taking the Stress Out of College: Knowing What to Expect

    Many college students realize they weren’t realistic about college. Some expect to find it hard living away from home, not only in terms of missing family but also in dealing with practical stuff like washing your own clothes. If anticipated, these issues can be less stressful. Living away from home tends to be the toughest adjustment for first-year students. You’ve had a clear role within your family all of your life: the family comedian, the mediator, maybe the translator. These roles can help you feel like you belong somewhere. It can be hard adjusting to a new place and a new…

    Empowering the Young for Life By David Hahn Jim Spier has been a fan of track and field since he was a high school student in the late 1950s. When he attended track and field events as an adult he got interested in the Junior events (under 20) and noticed that the Junior teams did not represent the makeup of the top high school track and field athletes in the nation. Together with his friend, Mike Byrnes, they did some digging, asking questions and studying the process. What Jim and Mike learned is that many young high school athletes could not advance to higher level sanctioned events. On…

  • Italy Rewind: Mark Donnal

    29 Aug 2014 | 6:30 am
    Welcome to “Italy Rewind,” our player-by-player recap and video feature from Michigan’s four-game tour of Italy. Previously: Zak Irvin, Caris LeVert, Derrick Walton, Aubrey Dawkins, Ricky Doyle, Kameron Chatman & Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman. Today: Mark Donnal. Mark Donnal spent last season battling against Jordan Morgan, Mitch McGary and Jon Horford in practice as he sat out during his redshirt season. The rest of his time last season was spent in the weight room – he’s now up to 240 pounds – as he prepared for his number 34 to be called this season. Now Mitch McGary,…
  • Italy Rewind: Derrick Walton

    Dylan Burkhardt
    28 Aug 2014 | 10:45 am
    Derrick Walton was Michigan’s fourth option offensively last season, but expectations are high for the 6-foot point guard from Detroit. Walton was a complementary star last season and while he made huge plays on the road at Michigan State, Nebraska and Ohio State he was always just out of the limelight. With Nik Stauskas, Glenn Robinson III, Mitch McGary and Jordan Morgan gone, all eyes will be on Walton to make a sophomore leap. He was efficient when he picked his spots last year and this blog has even hypothesized that he could make a Yogi Ferrell-like jump during his sophomore year.

Previously: Zak Irvin, Caris LeVert, Ricky Doyle, Kameron Chatman & Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman The phrase ‘three-and-D’ is commonly used to describe the perfect role player in the NBA. A ‘three-and-d’ player is athletic enough to guard multiple positions and can knock down three-point shots reliably.

Previously: Zak Irvin, Ricky Doyle & Kameron Chatman John Beilein has made a career out of his ability to recruit shooters and his perimeter-oriented offense has always been stereotyped by the three-point shot.

    Short and sweet. Here are 11 phrases successful athletes never say one game day (and probably not on any other day either)… Successful athletes don’t look for something to blame. They look and their performance, think about how they can do better next time, and work on it.  They don’t stay focused on the “coulda, woulda, shouldas.” No matter what, they want to do their best and help their team in any way they can, no matter what that may entail, no matter who is “supposed” to do it or not. Successful athletes LOVE a challenge and WANT the ball. They…

Twitter is just a tool, just a platform through which people can communicate. HOW YOU CHOOSE TO USE IT however, can cause problems for you if you make bad choices.

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 played for a high school that JUST started their softball program. She wasn’t spectacular pitching wise. 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…

  • 2014 College Football Betting Against the Public Report

    David Solar
    31 Aug 2014 | 1:10 pm
    Betting against the public has proven to be a historically profitable strategy across the six major American sports leagues, but constructing a solid system for College Football can be surprisingly difficult. One of the main reasons for this is that the number of bets varies greatly from game to game. For example, a contest between Alabama and Auburn may receive more than ten times the number of bets as a game between two smaller schools which greatly amplifies the impact of public betting. For this reason, simply looking at teams receiving less than 30% of spread bets may not be as accurate…

  • Are Good Rushing Teams Undervalued in Low Scoring College Football Games?

    David Solar
    30 Aug 2014 | 11:00 am
    For a long time I’ve theorized that underdogs with an effective ground game are typically undervalued — especially in low scoring games. The logic behind this hypothesis was simple enough: If teams are able to rush the football effectively then they are able to continually move the chains, eat clock, and stay within striking distance of their opponent. The nation’s top ranked rushing attacks are adept at keeping opposing offenses off the field and limiting the number of plays run in a given game. This typically leads to less scoring, which disproportionately benefits…
  • Which NFL Head Coaches Are on the Hot Seat?

    David Solar
    30 Aug 2014 | 9:30 am
    Sports fans can be a fickle and reactionary bunch — and quite prone to hyperbole. One day a player is your cities savior, the next day they’re a clubhouse cancer that needs to be removed. I think it would be fair to say that the average football fan changes their opinion almost as often as my girlfriend…almost. For that reason sports talk radio is usually inundated with calls about how their head coach should be fired, and that conversation can quickly turn into a mainstream media narrative. The NFL head coaching circuit is a carousel where coaches are often hired, fired…

    It is true that some of basketball players seem to have an innate talent for this type of game: they have the ideal height and the right skills that allow playing basketball apparently without paying too much effort into this. It comes only natural for them to be considered good players out there on the court, but while this happens during high school, when their body is still young and energetic, this talent might easily wear off if not properly educated and trained. This is why many of them fail to reach that level of being good players to be co-opted for colleges' basketball teams. Read…

There were nine winners that each contributed some component of the final court design, Hofstra said. “We thank all the wonderful Hofstra Basketball fans that submitted potential court…
  • Legendary Sportscaster Bob Wolff Makes Guinness Book of World Records
    22 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    Just when you thought Bob Wolff couldn’t do anything more impressive in a career that has seen one remarkable moment after another, the legendary Long Island sportscaster earned his way into the Guinness Book of World Records for the second time. He now has the “longest career as a broadcaster.” Wolff’s record was certified during a special pre-game ceremony at Yankee Stadium in the spring. He also holds the world record for “longest career as sportscaster.” This is a man used to recognition for his work. He’s enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame and the National…
  • LIer Sonny Milano Drafted by Blue Jackets
    2 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    It doesn’t happen often, but Long Island added another native son to world of professional hockey last week. The Columbus Blue Jackets selected Massapequa native Sonny Milano in the first round of the NHL Draft. With nearly 50 family members and friends at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia for the draft, Milano was selected 16th overall. He already committed to play at Boston College, after de-committing to Notre Dame, and will play college hockey. The Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League own Milano’s Canadian junior rights as well. “He was very high on our list,” Blue…

He also excelled at the University of Miami and for his efforts on the collegiate level, Testaverde was inducted to the College Football Hall of Fame in its most recent class. The 2013 hall of fame class was inducted at the 56th National Football Foundation Annual Awards Dinner last December, and will be officially enshrined this summer. “We could not be more proud to announce the 2013 College…

    Late last month Long Island native and Patchogue-Medford alum Marcus Stroman was featured on the cover of Sportsnet, a popular magazine in Canada. As the face of the prospect pool for the Toronto Blue Jays, Stroman is widely considered the next big thing in their minor league system. The organization thinks highly enough of Stroman that they’ve already promoted him to the big leagues and he made his first career start last week, earning a victory thanks to a highly potent offense as of late. The Blue Jays beat the Royals, 12-2, and Stroman was elated. “It was pretty special,” Stroman…

  • An Early Glance at the Power Structure of the Eastern Conference

    Jordan Schoon
    13 Aug 2014 | 4:34 pm
    By Jordan SchoonThe summer of 2014 will be looked back on similarly to 2010 in the way that the competitive landscape of the NBA drastically shifted.  While there were certainly interesting moves and repercussions out west, the top tier teams (OKC, Spurs, Clips, etc.) largely remained in similar positions.  The West will be another bloodbath next season, but the teams competing for playoff spots should remain static.  The big changes happened in the lowly Eastern Conference, which now looks much more open and slightly more competitive for the upcoming season.  Miami and…
  • Why the Timberwolves Cannot Settle in Trading Kevin Love

    Jordan Schoon
    23 Jul 2014 | 1:56 pm
    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…

    Jordan Schoon
    15 Jul 2014 | 1:19 pm
    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.

    Rogue Brewery, Dead Guy Ale.      This is one of the most popular, and higher priced beers in the great state of Oregon. Until now it is one I have not tried. However for the sake of doing this inaugural post I reached deep down into my pocket and shelled out the twelve dollars and bought myself a six pack. I left the store wondering if I had just made a mistake.The nifty label is a great conversation starter, the skeleton is reminiscent of the way the Inca’s buried their dead, though I doubt they had a brew quite this well done.

Countless time and effort were saved once we settled on these, so hopefully I can save you some trouble by pointing you in the right direction.

  • Beer Label of the Month: Fountain Square’s Soul Ride

    22 Aug 2014 | 2:09 pm
    Most of Fountain Square Brewery‘s bottles have a consistent label design with a periodic table symbol, the beer style clearly shown with the same font, and some pleasing artwork. All of them look really nice and it makes for consistent branding, but my favorite of their labels is Soul Ride’s, which diverges from this norm. I guess there isn’t really an appropriate element for a periodic table symbol for Soul Ride, so that was left out. The artwork takes up more space and is more interesting on this label, and the beer style is smaller and integrated with the art. The label…

    31 Aug 2014 | 6:48 pm
    The Nationals came up short in Seattle on Sunday, but despite the 5-3 loss to the Mariners, Washington takes the series two games to one. Heading into the season’s final month, the Nats (77-58) hold a six game lead over the Braves in the NL East. The Nats led 3-1 at the game’s midway point, powered by a pair of Bryce Harper home runs.

  • Redskins claim Safety Duke Ihenacho off waivers

    Mark Buterbaugh
    31 Aug 2014 | 11:31 am
    The Washington Redskins have claimed safety Duke Ihenacho off waivers from the Denver Broncos. With a 3-13 record last season, Washington has second waiver priority and snatched up Ihenacho relatively quickly. With Brandon Merriweather set to start the first two games on suspension, the addition of Ihenacho is a big deal for the Redskins. He is not an All Pro safety, but he is certainly a solid player and a welcome addition to Washington’s secondary that quickly became a mess when Merriweather’s suspension was handed down. Ihenacho started 14 games last season at strong safety…
  • What the Redskins Cuts Mean for the Team

    Thomas Threlkeld
    30 Aug 2014 | 5:12 pm
    MOST SURPRISING CUT Rookie RB Lache Seastrunk, a 6th round pick out of Baylor, showed impressive speed running the ball all preseason and his 80-yard catch-and-run TD reception against Tampa Bay was clearly the best single play the team had during the preseason. But it wasn’t enough to keep him on the active roster, as he lost out to fellow rookie Silas Redd, a hard-running undrafted free agent who led the team with 157 rushing yards on 34 carries during the preseason. The team also cut second-year RB Chris Thompson, but since he missed two preseason games and a ton of practices with…

    The Nationals broke their three game losing streak on Friday night, beating the Mariners 8-3 in Seattle. The Nats used the long ball, six on the night, to support a solid pitching performance by Jordan Zimmermann. Washington hit six home runs in one game for only the fourth time in club history, but the most amazing aspect is that four of them came off arguably the best pitcher in the American League, Felix Hernandez. Felix Hernandez has never allowed four homers in one game. Until tonight. #IBackTheNats — Nationals on MASN (@masnNationals) August 30, 2014…

    28 Aug 2014 | 3:22 pm
    by:  L.C. May | @LCMay474     Photo Credit: Link Pre-season college football polls can be your best friend or worst enemy. Some may feel that the pre-season polls either hype up a team too much or do not give enough credit to the underdog. These polls are rarely correct especially when it comes to picking the number one team in the country. For example, the 2012 Associated Press pre-season poll had USC at the top of the rankings; yet, the Trojans finished the season unranked. In fact, 2004 was the last time AP pre-season #1 won the national championship (USC later had…

    30 Aug 2014 | 12:36 am
    There’s not much racing of note this Saturday, despite seven meetings up and down the country, and the best punting opportunities appear to be at Beverley and Sandown. The Beverley Bullet (Beverley 2.25) Beverley’s most prestigious meeting of the year brings together some of the fastest 5-furlong sprinters for what is the highlight of the card, and this year’s line-up looks sure to provide racegoers with a thrill. The ground may well have an effect on the outcome with early favourite pearl Secret (5/2) likely to shorten much further if the word soft appears in the going description,…
  • Premiership: Big-4 Acca Looks The Value Bet

    29 Aug 2014 | 12:44 am
    Two draws and a City win provided us with a tasty 6.75 profit last week, though this week’s action looks a little more difficult to predict, especially after some serious activity in the transfer market. A Manchester football team spending absurd amounts of money in a bid to play catch-up with their neighbours is nothing new, but the boot is certainly on the other foot as United find themselves investing millions in new players in an effort to match slick City’s exploits. Meanwhile, ex-Manchester City cast-off Mario Balotelli returns to the Premiership in a big to bolster a Liverpool side…

    With last year’s top-four all winning their first game of the season, there’s almost an inevitable feel to this year’s Premiership outcome. However, with Manchester City hosting Liverpool in the big Monday night clash, at least one of the big-4 are certain to lose their 100% record at this early stage – and maybe more than one. Manchester City vs Liverpool Whilst much of the post World Cup chatter has centred on the effect of Luis Suarez’s departure from Liverpool, last year’s Champions Manchester City have kept a relatively low-profile in comparison. However, after winning their…

    Liverpool and Tottenham are both with hopes for the fourth place in the Premier League table, only that the bookmakers see the Reds in the top five rather than this week’s opponents. Tottenham are currently on the first place in the Premier League table, with a better goal difference than Chelsea, after the 1-0 win against West Ham and the 4-0 win against QPR. Eric Dier is also among the best goalscorers, being paired up with the likes of Sergio Aguero and Diego Costa. This time around Tottenham will try to avoid the embarrassment from the last season when they lost with 9-0 on aggregate,…

This match is between two teams that are the best their respective countries have to offer, and they were pretty level in the first match until a last gasp goal by Chipciu gave Steaua the advantage over their Bulgarian opponents. Ludogorets ridiculed CSKA Sofia when they won against them with 2-0 all while resting several of their key players. The hosts made a name on the European stage last season when they took out of the competition such names as Lazio and…

    Will Michael Sam make an NFL roster? Any way you spin it, Michael Sam is a headache for a team. Frankly, it’s a headache worth bearing, but right now NFL teams don’t think so. By signing the first openly-gay NFL Draft pick, an NFL team will get embroiled in activism — and with activism comes press. And that press is too much. News outlets have been disrespectful and unprofessional in covering Sam. Bills’ linebacker Eric Wood agrees.

    Clemson +10(-115) vs GeorgiaGeorgia is heavily favored in this game. Probably because they're in the SEC. Regardless, this Clemson team just might be for real this year. The Tigers are coming off a solid season last year and are looking to keep rolling. I don't know if they'll win but I don't think anyone is about to get blown out. LSU vs Wisconsin (+150)Here's one of the better match ups of the weekend.

Then we saw EJ finally get the ball to Sammy Watkins and this beauty went for 14 yards and another first down. C.J. then runs for 3 and Sammy catches his second catch for 5 yards.

  • India’s Chances in the Series Ahead of the Second ODI

    26 Aug 2014 | 8:55 am
    The first match of the 5-match ODI series between England and India was washed out due to intensive rain at Bristol. At present, as it stands, apparently the series has gone down to a 4-match series. The second ODI will be played tomorrow at Cardiff. India are desperate to make a bounce back in their tour to England after a poor performance in the test series where they were literally humiliated by the hosts and India lost the test series by a margin of 1-3. The ODI squad of India had some changes to that of the test squad. The brilliant fielder and a good left handed batsman, Suresh Raina is…

  • Detroit: Behind Enemy Lines

    Robert Wells
    30 Aug 2014 | 10:47 am
      After a series with the lowly Twins in which the Royals struggled, but ultimately took two of the three games, their place atop the AL central seems to be in jeopardy. They currently have a tenuous hold on a one and a half game lead, but there is reason to believe that they can, in fact, hang on (if Bruce Chen isn’t pitching too often). As a native Missourian that has been transplanted, against my will, into a suburb of Detroit, I have no choice but to listen to the enemy’s sports radio programming during my daily commute. Although the personalities are smug and condescending,…
  • Carlos Santana punishes Royals again in 6-1 Indians win

    Ryan Landreth
    29 Aug 2014 | 10:06 pm
    It was a perfect August evening in Kansas City on Friday night. Kauffman Stadium was electric; over 31,000 fans came through the turnstiles to watch their first-place Royals. Unfortunately, the Royals couldn’t reward their fans with a memorable performance, falling 6-1 to the hands of the Cleveland Indians. For the second straight start, Jason Vargas (10-7) was shaky, and just like the Rangers did last Sunday, the Indians punished him early on. After surrendering a run on a second-inning double, Vargas was battered in the third. Jose Ramirez singled home the game’s second run, and Carlos…
  • Number Munchers: Back to Minors Part II – Do Numbers Matter?

    Zach Hodson
    29 Aug 2014 | 11:51 am
    A couple weeks back, Number Munchers took a look at the career progression of Christian Colon. Coming off a short stint of initial major league success, kneejerk fans tired of watching “Moose vs the Mendoza Line” and Omar Infante’s tendency to fluctuate at a moment’s notice between Mr Clutch and Dr Awful have been calling for Colon to get an everyday spot in the lineup. With this week’s acquisition of career .214 / .284 / .347 Jayson Nix, the temperature around Colon seems to be bubbling over. Why would an organization that drafted a player in the top 5 not have any faith in him?
  • Come On CHEN…..To Omaha

    29 Aug 2014 | 6:19 am
    So the Vultures are officially circling.  It is time to put Bruce Chen to pasture.  I have been a fan of his the past few years, but this year he has really shown his age.  With a 7.45 ERA and some truly awful outings from the bullpen, Chen and his $3 million dollar contract, have lost all value on this team (on the field anyways).  As rosters get expanded next week it would be better for the Royals to DFA Chen than have him take up a spot another Lefty could fill in the back end of the bullpen. As a long man in the bullpen there are several deserving AA and AAA guys that could fill…

    Last time out, Jeremy Guthrie pitched seven innings, while battling through a fifty-three minute rain delay. Luckily, there was no rain in sight, and Jeremy Guthrie was allowed an uninterrupted start tonight. Unfortunately, Guthrie’s start would be a bad one. Tonight’s contest between the Twins had a rather odd start. Not that Jeremy Guthrie allowing two runs in an inning is odd, but it’s the way he did it that is rather befuddling. Kennys Vargas and Oswaldo Arcia both had an RBI apiece, but Guthrie managed to throw only eleven pitches in the inning. Kansas City came right…

General Manager John Elway said the team is very concerned that the repeated bouncing of ice cubes off Welker’s head may give him a concussion that will end his career. “We are very concerned for Wes and do not want him taking any unnecessary hits to the head during non-football activities.

    Sitting on my couch, in front of the tv on Saturday nights can be quite boring when there is no live premier league football to watch. That’s why I’m starting to feel like a little kid on the eve of Raya knowingly that in just a few more hours, The English Premier League will be back and there’s no better way to kick start the new season than with my beloved, Manchester United, as they take on Swansea City at Old Trafford in an early kick-off match at 7.45pm (Malaysian time). Malaysian Red Devils can tune to Astro, Channel 810 tonight and watch the beginning of a new era…
  • K. Dharmaraj Axed, A. Arulselvaraj Takes Over

    So the Malaysian Hockey Confederation (MHC) has finally pushed the panic button and decided to replace ‘under fire‘ head coach, K. Dharmaraj with Project 2016 coach, A. Arulselvaraj, albeit the appointment is just an interim measure. The face-saving move with Dharmaraj as a “scapegoat” to me is an act of cowardice, designed to appease the fans after a disastrous World Cup campaign and shameful performances at the recent Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. It would have been better for the MHC to stick by their man for at least another year after they decided to give…

    There is no bitter way to lose a medal in sports than through disqualification and Nur Ayuni Farhana Abdul Halim must be devastated to know that her 2014 Commonwealth Games‘ journey has ended even before the game starts.  Nur Ayuni, who won the gold medal with Nur Suryani Taibi in the 10 metre air rifle pairs in New Delhi four years ago, was due to compete in the 10 metre air rifle and 50m rifle prone events. Then disaster struck when her competition jacket was lost en route to Scotland. I tweeted YB Khairy last night for details and here is his response: Netizens then went uproar when…

    Fantasy Football 2014: Running Back RankingsAug 31, 2014 Is the running back position a dying breed? They are not as high in demand as they used to be, there are fewer featured backs and the new dual-RB system is catching on quick in the NFL. However, they remain a crucial position in fantasy football. There are the clear cut top five or six running backs but after that there is a bit of a drop-off. Use these rankings to sort out who you should take and where. If you have any fantasy questions or just want to chat, follow Chat Sports’ fantasy aficionados Al King (@alking906) and Tom Downey…

    Fantasy Football 2014: Tight End RankingsAug 31, 2014 The tight-end position is becoming a big part of real life NFL but is still mediocre in terms of fantasy. Aside from the top performer in Jimmy Graham after that the point separation is huge. This distance between the first and second tight-end is unlike any other position.

    Do sports agents need written player-agent agreements? Does a Player-Agent Agreement have to be in writing? The simple answer is yes, but it may not matter.   FIBA regulations require a “written contract” between a player and agent. But no formalities to that written agreement are prescribed by FIBA. Any writing evidencing the agreement will suffice. […]
