    The Europe League match between Feyenoord and Roma was delayed after Feyenoord fans threw an inflatable banana on the pitch, purportedly intended as a racist gesture against Gervinho, a black player on Roma. Police were on heightened alert in advance of this match after nearly two dozen Feyenoord fans were arrested in Rome last week for rioting before the first leg between the two teams.
  • PICS: Tom Brady Steps Up His Offseason Workout By At Least 300 Pounds
    25 Feb 2015 | 2:56 pm
    Robert Deutsch/USA TODAY Sports Okay, so there may be a little fiction behind that headlines… okay, maybe alot. Earlier this month we poked a little fun at Tom Brady, when he posted a picture to his Facebook page of him working out with his “trainer.” It looked like a great time, but I felt that Brady could be pushing himself a little bit more in the weight room. Maybe he heard us, because he definitely increased his workload. Brady was having some fun on Facebook today and posted the perfect photoshopped picture of him planking with Vince Wilfork on his back. In full pads.

    When Patric Hörnqvist had his stick slapped out of his hand, he probably thought he was going to have to do that awkward thing where you chase the puck with your hands spread out wide and try to throw your body in front of every shot. Instead, Sidney Crosby miraculously caught the damn thing and handed it right back to him. That's good captaining.Read more...

But what they do know is that Jimmy Butler and Tony Snell are emerging as a pair of wings who can fly them into the future. The voyage of Butler has been well chronicled. He’s in the midst of one of the greatest breakout seasons in history. And it’s impossible not to feel good about that. And now, Snell is having a Butler-esque sophomore season.

  • What Can Jacoby Jones Still Offer NFL Teams?

    26 Feb 2015 | 5:38 pm
    When NFL teams cut players at this time of year, it’s usually for salary-cap reasons. The Baltimore Ravens terminated the contract of wide receiver and return man Jacoby Jones on Wednesday, but they saved very little in the process. Jones’ base salary was actually less than the dead money the Ravens will have against the cap due to his release.    If the Ravens didn’t save cap space by releasing Jones, does he still have anything left to offer other NFL teams? Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome is widely considered one of the best in the league, so it would be…

    26 Feb 2015 | 6:12 pm
    Louisville coach Rick Pitino had reached his limit with Chris Jones, even before he knew the senior guard was facing felony rape and sodomy charges. Demonstrating a zero tolerance for any more misbehavior after reinstating Jones from a one-game suspension, Pitino abruptly dismissed him from the team. Pitino says all he knew for certain at the time was that Jones had broken a curfew, but had no details about more serious accusations looming. Then Thursday, Jones pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree rape and sodomy.

    26 Feb 2015 | 5:36 pm
    The Atlanta Falcons on Thursday released running back Steven Jackson, who in two seasons with the team couldn't recapture his 1,000-yard form that made him one of the league's top backs with the Rams. In 2013, his first season with the Falcons, he had 543 yards rushing in 12 games. Jackson has had at least 20 catches in 10 straight seasons, including a career-best 90 receptions in 2006. The Falcons, expected to have a defensive makeover under new coach Dan Quinn, the former Seattle defensive coordinator, also could have a new look on offense.
  • Agent: Panthers' Hardy seeking reinstatement from NFL (Yahoo Sports)

    26 Feb 2015 | 4:15 pm
    Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy is seeking immediate reinstatement from the NFL after a federal judge cleared way for Adrian Peterson's return to the league. Hardy, 26, was convicted last summer on two counts of domestic violence. A federal judge opened the door for faster reinstatement of Peterson when he ruled an NFL arbitrator ''failed to meet his duty'' in a child abuse case against the star running back. U.S. District Judge David Doty overruled NFL arbitrator Harold Henderson's December denial of Peterson's appeal.

    The Seattle Seahawks are once again going to play in the Super Bowl this Sunday and they will once again be playing a team with a legendary quarterback from this generation in Tom Brady and his New England Patriots. Last Super Bowl the Seahawks rattled Denver Bronco’s quarterback Peyton Manning on their way to winning the Lombardi Trophy on a 43-8 route. Since the start of the 21st century the biggest debate has been who is a better quarterback Peyton Manning or Tom Brady. Brady has the rings but Manning has the MVP’s. Peyton dominates in the regular season but chokes in the playoffs.

    Brutal: the job by the refs in the Dallas Green Bay game in the closing minutes. The play in question: a fourth-down pass to the two-yard line by Dallas’ Tony Romo to wide receiver Dez Bryant. Bryant secured the ball to his shoulder as he landed one foot, held the ball with his left as the second foot came down, then took a third step and a lunge for the end zone with his left arm outstretched. Part of the ball hit the ground, ran up the side of Bryant’s hand, into the air, where he recaptured it. Here’s the definition of a catch as defined by the National Football League.

    RICK NEUHEISEL WAS ONCE CONSIDERED AN UPGRADE, SOMEHOW At the end of the 2007 regular season, UCLA athletic director Dan "Just Put Some Wood Glue On It, It'll Be Fine" Guerrero fired Karl Dorrell as head coach of the Bruins. Nobody was really shocked by this; Dorrell lost four conference games in all but one of his five seasons, went 1-3 in bowl games, and was usually reliable for at least one stupid loss to an unranked team per year. There was no shortage of struggle and ruin for UCLA during the Dorrell Era, but they avoided one notable failure: the Bruins never got shut out. Oh, there were…

  • ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’ Is Way More Likable With The ‘Who’s The Boss?’ Theme

    Ashley Burns
    26 Feb 2015 | 6:30 pm
    While it was undoubtedly a great movie that deserved all of the critical praise, The Wolf of Wall Street was a pretty difficult movie to enjoy. After all, it was essentially about a group of criminals with absolutely no redeeming qualities whatsoever, and when they were snorting and ingesting every addictive substance under the sun and keeping so many prostitutes gainfully employed, there were hard-working people losing all of their money to unwittingly fund such behavior. But other than all of the scumbag antics and deplorable characters, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill were fantastic.

    CBS There was a moment when CBS seemed pretty much done with the CSI franchise. Having canceled spin-offs CSI: Miami and CSI: New York, the only show that remained on the network was the Las Vegas original. But in a twist, things changed when the network realized there was some new area to explore in CSI: Cyber, and thus, the franchise appears to be a big priority for the network once again. How much of a priority, though? Record setting, apparently. CBS has declared Wednesday, March 4, “World CSI Day,” marking a global effort for CSI to break the Guinness World Records Achievement for…

Minor things like that. At least, that’s what happened to a man in Florida, who literally did not realize that the pain in his head had been caused by getting shot in that very head during a shooting at Bethune-Cookman University. They said he walked into the emergency room complaining about a bad headache, and when doctors took a closer look, they found bullet fragments lodged in his head. “There was…

  • Adrian Peterson Wins Suspension Appeal As Judge Doty Smacks Down Goodell Again

    Christmas Ape
    26 Feb 2015 | 11:49 am
    NFL Roger Goodell nemesis Judge David Doty strikes again. On Thursday, the U.S. District judge who in 2011 brought the owners to the bargaining table with the players by ruling that they couldn’t use their $4 billion war chest to outlast the players union during the lockout, this time overruled an arbitrator’s denial of Adrian Peterson’s suspension appeal. The league suspended Peterson through at least April 15 under its personal conduct policy. But Doty said in his 16-page ruling that Henderson “simply disregarded the law of the shop and in doing so failed to meet his…

There are two reasons for that. 1. I was on holiday (wee! I got on television!) and 2. Nobody wrote in. Now, I’m a pretty self-aware guy.

    Getty Image When Roger Goodell is handing down decisions to screw over players and fans, it’s tempting to think that he wields some sort of absolute power over the NFL, when in reality his job is to be a physical manifestation of the collective interests of the owners. In the course of doing that job, Goodell is occasionally called upon to make those owners look good, even when the owner in question oversees a laughably inept franchise and has been fined millions for committing fraud in his other business ventures. During a Q&A at the Hall of Fame moderated by Dan Dierdorf, Goodell…
  • The Lions Released Reggie Bush

    25 Feb 2015 | 2:45 pm
    Getty Image The Lions released Reggie Bush on Wednesday after two years with the team. 2014 was an injury riddled and generally not very productive campaign for Bush, who turns 30 in less than a week. The running back was scheduled to make $5.2 million in 2015, though the Lions won’t save quite that much by cutting him. Cutting Reggie Bush only saves Lions $1.7M which means they really just didn't want him — Ross Tucker (@RossTuckerNFL) February 25, 2015 Aww, poor Reggie. Of course, it might not be that harsh and the Lions could just be trying to build up some cap room in an…

    Despite Derrick Rose suffering his second meniscus tear in as many years, the Chicago Bulls are hopeful the guard will be able to return this season. K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune received confirmation from Vice President of Basketball Operations John Paxson regarding the team's feelings: The team announced that Rose, 26, is scheduled to undergo surgery Friday on his right knee, and it's unknown when he injured it.

But what they do know is that Jimmy Butler and Tony Snell are emerging as a pair of wings who can fly them into the future. The voyage of Butler has been well chronicled. He’s in the midst of one of the greatest breakout seasons in history. And it’s impossible not to feel good about that. And now, Snell is having a Butler-esque sophomore season.

 But they hover on benches, in numbers, even within a particular star’s game.

  • What Can Jacoby Jones Still Offer NFL Teams?

    26 Feb 2015 | 5:38 pm
    When NFL teams cut players at this time of year, it’s usually for salary-cap reasons. The Baltimore Ravens terminated the contract of wide receiver and return man Jacoby Jones on Wednesday, but they saved very little in the process. Jones’ base salary was actually less than the dead money the Ravens will have against the cap due to his release.    If the Ravens didn’t save cap space by releasing Jones, does he still have anything left to offer other NFL teams? Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome is widely considered one of the best in the league, so it would be…

The company didn't reveal the full list of participants, instead saying on Facebook that he'll be facing "multiple WWE Superstar opponents." Although no names have been confirmed, it's not too hard to guess a few names who will be included. Dean Ambrose is a safe bet after he stole the physical Intercontinental Championship belt from Barrett at Fastlane.

    26 Feb 2015 | 3:10 pm
    The Sprint Cup drivers returned to the track Thursday at Atlanta Motor Speedway, getting an extra day to test out the new rules package that will be in effect for the first time. ''This really feels like the start of the season,'' said Kyle Larson, who ranked second behind Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Jamie McMurray during the first practice session on a cool, windy day at the 1.54-mile trioval. The Daytona 500 is in a class of its own, the biggest event of the year coming right at the start of the schedule. Also, since the races at Daytona and Talladega are run with a special…

''I've asked her to keep her legs crossed as long as she can if she does go into labor,'' Smith joked at Daytona International Speedway last weekend. Everything worked out just fine for the Smiths, who welcomed son Rhett Lee on Wednesday, an off day for NASCAR drivers. The baby had a short window to arrive: Smith gets back on track Thursday at Atlanta Motor Speedway, where he'll drive Busch's car for Stewart-Haas Racing in an open NASCAR test.

The renewed focus announced Tuesday by ISC President John Saunders comes three days after NASCAR star Kyle Busch broke his right leg and left foot in a crash into a concrete wall at Daytona International Speedway.

    It was a bumpy buildup to the Daytona 500, which for days was overshadowed by disputes, drama, an injury to Kyle Busch and the suspension of his older brother, Kurt. Dozens of cars were wrecked, and on the morning of NASCAR's season-opening showcase, reigning series champion Kevin Harvick warned ''we're going to tear up some (more).'' So there was every reason to feel anxious going into ''The Great American Race.'' It wasn't necessary, as the Daytona 500 proved entertaining and trouble free - exactly what NASCAR needed.

    News broke earlier today that the Mets weren’t planning to discuss extending Daniel Murphy‘s contract, and Newsday’s Marc Carig has some more details on the team’s decision.  Murphy rates as a below-average second baseman and the Mets are worried he’ll inevitably have to be moved to a corner infield position.  While Murphy hits well for a second baseman, the Mets don’t believe he has the bat necessary for third base or first base, not to mention the fact that David Wright and Lucas Duda have those positions covered for at least the next few seasons in New…

    If you haven’t been living under a rock for the last few years you’ll be aware that America is on the verge of a tipping point in the way it treats the regulated sale of cannabis. But however much America at large may be slowly coming round to a future of legal pot, major sports leagues retain antiquated and damaging ideas when it comes to punishing recreational smoking amongst sportsmen. Athletes exist in a culturally grey area; some like Michael Phelps, Marshawn Lynch and Jerome Simpson have been caught or pictured in possession and suffered relatively little consequent damage to their…

    26 Feb 2015 | 8:29 am
    Here's an amusing little antidone antelope story that should warm your cockles on this cold Febuwary Februrary month-after-January day:I returned to a bicycle coated with ice and attempted, shakily, to navigate an ice-covered street. A man watched and literally scoffed at me with the “sorry, sucker” look on his face, then climbed into his car. Slowly, I wobbled the bike past his car as he started it and hit the gas. The car didn’t move a bit, but the wheels were spinning plenty.Delightful.  There are few sights more amusing than that of a floundering driver, which is why I watch…

    Going free diving is a great activity that can be done year-round here in California. It also complements surfing, as conditions are best when the surf is relatively small. However, many are hesitant to participate due to the variety of dangerous scenarios that can occur without warning. The most notable being exhaustion, getting tangled in Kelp, getting smashed on the reef or becoming disoriented. The biggest threat is the time that it would take to receive medical aid or support from lifeguards when things go wrong. For example, when I go with my friends in Laguna a Beach, we explore…

    Brian Fitz
    26 Feb 2015 | 9:42 pm
    The Chicago Bulls look to avoid a misstep as they host the improving Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night from the United Center. The Chicago Bulls are sitting in fourth place in the Eastern conference at 36-22 on the season but it’s not exactly cushy territory with the Bucks and Wizards just a few games back.  To complicate matters, the Bulls have likely lost star point guard Derrick Rose for the season once again due to a torn meniscus in his knee.  Of course the Bulls have been in this position before though, and they’ve really handled the absences admirably over the past few…

    The Colorado Avalanche are in dire straits right now, along with their opponent on Friday night. Both the Avalanche and the Dallas Stars sit seven points out the playoff picture in the Western Conference with more than one team ahead of them. With just 21 games remaining it doesn’t look like Patrick Roy is going to have this club in the playoffs this year. Colorado had won four of five games heading into Tuesday night’s match up with the Nashville Predators, but they were out classed by a much better team. Nathan MacKinnon gave the Avalanche an early 1-0 lead with his 13th goal of the…

With Lewandowski and Robben both netting a pair a piece in the six nil win last time out Bayern look almost unbeatable at times and Pep Guardiola will look to continue their strong domestic form when they take on Koln.

    “Just keep your eye on the ball.”  Seems like simple enough advice for a young slugger at the plate.  That may work in the early years of Little League baseball when the pitches they see  have not yet cracked 50 mph.  But as the fastballs get faster and the change-ups get slower, having quick eyes and an even quicker perceptual brain is the only way hitters will be able to “hit it square” with a round bat and a round ball.   Which is exactly why psychology researchers at the University of California - Riverside (UCR) teamed up with the college’s varsity…

    Young athletes often hear phrases of encouragement like, “dig a little deeper” or “you have to want it more than they do” or, ideally, “be mentally tough.”  For most kids, these words from a coach, a parent or a teammate go in one ear and out the other.  But, what if there was actually some scientific substance to the words?  Could the smiling, confident face of a coach delivering a pep talk actually have a subliminal effect on performance?  While the conscious brain may dismiss this positive talk, the subconscious mind may actually be putting it to work,…

Quickly Rodgers turned to the right, to where Cobb was planting his foot in the ground three or four yards upfield and preparing to run a simple in-cut; at the same time, his cover man, cornerback Desmond Trufant, was going to…

He chained the doors shut and called the move to do so a "less than punitive" response to what he perceived as a lack of effort in a 28-point loss to the Hawkeyes Sunday.  Miles, the sometimes unorthodox Nebraska coach who is known to tweet at halftime of games, told reporters he hoped it would galvanize the Cornhuskers, which haven't won in 23 days. He also joked, on Monday during the Big Ten coaches…

Stephen Jackson – not the former NBA player – has followed Plano West closely this season and is impressed by Mitchell's progress: @RussDaum2 @MYoung11W971 @m_kendallgreen7 I do buried a deep 3 late in a rival game vs Plano east took guts and improved shooting to take it — stephen jackson…

  • Thirsty Thursday – 2/26/15

    26 Feb 2015 | 8:13 am
    Welp, since it's Thirsty Thursday, let's talk about what makes a sports fan wanna run to the bar and slam a fred lite or two during Happy Hour of course: NBA.  Rajon Rondo hasn't met a coach he liked or wanted to challenge.  This time it cost him a game and a half for blowing off a coaches call then getting into an f-bomb screaming match with him on the court. Chicago might want to reach for a vat of their favorite beverage after learning Derek Rose went out AGAIN with another knee injury. I'll talk about this Tuesday more, but Zach Randolph down in Memphis needs to tone down his "I'm THE…

    Welcome to Wednesday, Gabbers. The temps are crawling up for the rest of the week. Baseball is starting up in the South. It’s also Lent or fish fry season to me. Speaking of fish, it seems that Jeremy Wade was looking for monster catfish in the wrong part of Europe. European folklore is peppered with tales of Wels catfish growing large enough to swallow people whole. The Wels is the second largest freshwater fish in Europe though it is rare to find specimens larger than 6.5 feet in length. An Italian fisherman landed a new record for rod and reel in the Po Delta. After a 40 minute fight,…

  • Super Bowl Post-Mortem: The Makings of a Champion

    2 Feb 2015 | 2:11 pm
    Super Bowl XLIX provided so much drama and excitement.  Thank you New England and Seattle.  It was also memorable and valuable for what we can learn from it.  Despite the outcome and the fact that the Super Bowl trophy belongs to the New England Patriots, it can be said that both teams played like champions. Let's look at the anatomy of championship mindset and what mental conditioning is necessary to compete for a Super Bowl. This Super Bowl was a lesson in putting yourself in the best possible position to win.  Both teams did so much to make themselves champions.

    I am a performance video junkie.  In following people on Facebook or perusing YouTube videos, I have watched an abnormally crazy number of great performance videos related to all types of activities. What has been amazing to me about the comments (beside the incredibly inappropriate and/or negative ones) is the frequency of comments about how talented the performer is.  The second most frequent comment is how the viewer wished he/she could do that.These comments provide great insight into the type of mental conditioning that is so pervasive and so counterproductive to success and…

Maybe I didn't do that as well when I was younger.''-Tony Romo, quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, after a 24-20 comeback wild-card playoff victory over the Detroit Lions.  Romo provided leadership to the Cowboys with his perseverance, tenacity, composure, and experience.  After being down 20-7 to the Lions, the Cowboys with Romo at the helm, bounced back and took over the game with 17…

Carey researchers say the Phoenix area benefits greatly — both economically and otherwise — from its portfolio of major sporting events. Not all cities can say the same.

    After finding his scoring touch in Germany, Cristiano Ronaldo is ready to renew his scintillating duel with Lionel Messi in the Spanish league. Ronaldo ended a rare three-game slump without a goal to help Real Madrid win 2-0 at Schalke in the Champions League. “It is clear that Cristiano Ronaldo lives to score goals,” Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said. “It’s never a problem for us when he doesn’t score for a couple of games. But he, of course, minds. I believe we are back on the right track.” Madrid leads Barcelona by one point in the league before visiting a modest Elche side on…

    Remember the derisively-titled Bush Bowl of New Year’s Day 2006? The San Francisco 49ers, who entered the final game of the 2005 season with a record of 3-12, played host to the Houston Texans, who were 2-13. The loser, the thinking went, "earned" the No. 1 draft pick and, thus, the right to use said selection on Reggie Bush, the Heisman Trophy-winning running back out of USC. The 49ers won in overtime 20-17, giving the Texans the top pick, and they instead selected defensive end Mario William

    He’s back! Kevin Garnett made his much anticipated return to the Twin City this evening against the Washington Wizards. Garnett was drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves in 1995. Following 12 seasons with the T-Wolves, Garnett joined the Boston Celtics along with Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. Garnett made a significant impact and won an NBA championship with Boston in 2008. Garnett, formerly a member of the Brooklyn Nets, waived his no-trade clause last week, which in turn shipped the forward to the team that drafted him.

  • Juan Nieves – Highs and Lows

    Michael Passanisi
    22 Feb 2015 | 7:37 pm
    As the Sox begin spring training, a lot of eyes will be on their pitching staff. The starting group lacks an ace, and the bullpen is rather unsettled, with closer Koji Uehara coming off an injury-plagued year. Those same eyes will be on pitching coach Juan Nieves, who enters his third season on the job. The first two have featured big highs (a Championship in 2013) and big lows ( a last place finish in ’14 marked by the departure of 4 of the 5 starters from the previous season). Nieves has also known highs and lows in his own major league career. A native of Puerto Rico, he did not…

    (Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty Images) Of the five-plus men who should compete for the number one job in the Red Sox rotation, righty Wade Miley, obtained from Arizona in December, is the most intriguing. Only 28 years old, he has shown success at every level of competition, from Rookie Leagues to the majors. Just two years ago, he was considered one of the top hurlers in baseball. A Louisiana native, Miley played college baseball at Southeast Louisiana University. Signed in the first round by the Diamondbacks in 08, he moved up rapidly in the minor league system. By 2010 he was excelling at…

    When the idea of contending in 2014 was put to rest, the Boston Red Sox reloaded for 2015, saying goodbye to a few familiar faces. Pending free agents Jon Lester, Jake Peavy and John Lackey were all traded during the season to clear up space for the moves that would most heavily impact 2015. The Red Sox brought in the top two offensive free agents, Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez, while restocking their rotation with Justin Masterson, Wade Miley and Rick Porcello. The new additions mixed in with fan favorites Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz and Mike Napoli, have the Boston faithful geared up…

He had 40 doubles, only the 13th catcher ever to accomplish the feat. Saltalamacchia was backed up by David Ross, a capable sub and favorite of Jon Lester. But in a move that baffled many fans, the team did not tender a free-agent offer to Salty.He ended up signing for three years with Miami. Ben Cherington apparently thought that young Christian Vasquez was almost ready, but as a…

    Now that the Red Sox appear to have passed on signing James Shields (it has been written that his reputation as a fly-ball pitcher settled the issue), the stopper problem remains. I recently wrote about Joe Kelly, but if you look over career stats, Rick Porcello is a stronger possiblity. A New Jersey native, the 26-year-old righty first attracted notice in his senior year at Seton Hall Prep in West Orange. His record was 10-0 with 103 K’s and a 1.44 ERA in 63 innings. He was also named 06-07 Gatorade national player of the year. After signing a letter of intent for North Carolina, he…

    The winter transfer window has become something of a sideshow in English league football, as its relatively short history is littered with stop-gap signings, expensive flops and the occasional sprinkling of season defining moves. The penchant for short-term thinking in the contemporary English game means that many managers use the January transfer window to address their problems by spending excess amounts of cash, laying the foundation for mixed and often spectacular results. Managers will often stake their reputation on a big deadline day transfer, risking their job on the purchase of a…

    Hello dear readers, You know I normally update this blog two times per week. But actually I'm very overloaded with my current job and isn't able to do high-quality blog updates so frequently. Merely I didn't manage to play FM 2015 enough and have nothing to report about at the moment. Therefore it would be better for everybody if I officially switch to another schedule:          1 time per

  • Baseball Practice Planning Prep

    13 Feb 2015 | 8:57 am
    Baseball practice planning prep is essential for all baseball coaches, and especially for youth baseball coaches. Great coaches, from Little League to the Major League’s, come to each practice with a plan. They’re not just winging it. They know what they’re going to do, so practice time becomes simply an implementation of a plan. Not only do players learn more about the game this way, but it makes it so much easier for baseball coaches. With a plan in hand, coaches can free their minds to live in the moment and teach. Coaches who don’t come ready for a plan have to…

    Percy Harvin is slated to make a non-guaranteed $10.5 million with the New York Jets in 2015. Needless to say, that is highly unlikely to happen, as New York would be foolish not to ask Harvin to take a pay cut.

    Grant Bagby
    26 Feb 2015 | 8:09 am
    I told my wife I was going to be writing about the Arizona game this Saturday. She asked me, “What about the ASU game?” My response: I know the players are focused on the game coming up on Thursday. Luckily, I don’t play Thursday and I am clearly looking past ASU. Why? Arizona has our number. The Utes haven’t managed to beat them since joining the PAC-12. The Utes have lost with an average margin of thirteen points. Since, Coach Krystkowiak and the Utes have a short turn around for the game Saturday, I figured I would help them out with my thoughts. Now normally the…

    John English
    25 Feb 2015 | 4:00 pm
    There’s an interesting back-and-forth dynamic between the main roster and the NXT roster. In fact, let me call them the Raw roster. The NXT roster has frustration because they aren’t making Raw-roster money, and so they’re staying in “development.” But that frustration is mild by most of them. They’re able to put on good matches against an enthusiastic, albeit, small crowd, and they can work out their kinks. The Raw roster makes more money, but they have a worse creative team, and most of them are stuck putting on these three-minute matches in front of big…

    I think I saw somewhere that more players were traded on Thursday than anytime in Trade Deadline history. Wouldn’t surprise me. First I want to focus on the Utah Jazz and what this trade means for them, then look at everyone else. The Jazz traded away former #3 pick Enes Kanter as well as Steve Novak for 2013 2nd round pick PF Grant Jerrett, the rights to 2010 2nd round pick C Tibor Pleiss, a lottery-protected 1st round pick from the Thunder, and the Pistons’ 2017 2nd round pick. The Thunder pick won’t be able to be used until 2017, and if Kevin Durant leaves OKC in 2016,…

In the end, it was a three team deal that included the Jazz sending off Steve Novak. On paper, the deal looks like Utah lost, but you have to dig deeper to realize that Utah’s haul is a gold mine. In the end, the Jazz picked up D-League player Grant Jerrett, international player Tibor Pleiss, Kendrick Perkins (sources indicate he won’t ever suit up after a likely buyout by the Jazz), an Oklahoma City…

  • Perfect Mike Fisher pass leads to Craig Smith goal

    Andrew Hirsh
    26 Feb 2015 | 7:17 pm
    Nashville's second line has had a productive night against Minnesota. Mike Fisher's production has been a pleasant surprise this year. After missing extended time with an Achilles injury, the veteran forward has registered 32 points (14 goals, 18 assists) in 41 contests -- providing Nashville with some much-needed scoring depth. Thursday's matchup against Minnesota is shaping up to be one of his best in recent memory. A goal 16 seconds into the middle frame tied the game at one, and several minutes later, he chipped a beautiful pass to linemate Craig Smith, who drove to the net and beat…

    The 11-year veteran running back was released on Thursday. The Atlanta Falcons have released veteran running back Steven Jackson, the team announced on Thursday. Jackson has been one of the most effective running backs in the NFL for about a decade, but the 31-year-old has slowed considerably in his two seasons with the Falcons. When new Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan neglected to say whether Jackson would be back in 2015, it was pretty clear that his chances of returning were slim. He was set to make $3.75 million in 2015 and the Falcons will save that same amount against…

    The Spartans had a five-point lead with 14 seconds left. They lost. DO NOT FOUL THREE-POINT SHOOTERS. That's one of the most basic things in college hoops. ESPECIALLY DO NOT DO IT WHEN YOU ARE LEADING BY A FEW POINTS WITH LITTLE TIME LEFT. That's an addition to that basic rule. MSU forgot that in drastic fashion. First, Branden Dawson fouled Joey King while he was shooting a three with 14 seconds left. King hit all three. MSU went 1-for-2 the following possession. On the next trip down the court, Gavin Schilling fouled Carlos Morris on ANOTHER three ... and he hit it! Morris missed the free…

    Andrew Hirsh
    26 Feb 2015 | 6:09 pm
    An incredible play, all for naught. This is one of the best goals you will see all year. Unfortunately, you won't see it on any score sheets. Eight minutes into the second period, Carey Price stopped Columbus forward Corey Tropp on a prime scoring chance at the doorstep. This created a scrum in the crease, and the puck ended up on top of the net. Tropp then poked the puck upwards and slapped it home mid-air -- all while falling on his back. The goal was immediately disallowed. The NHL explained why: At 8:00 of the second period in the Montreal Canadiens/Columbus Blue Jackets game, the…

  • Press Man Trail Technique for the Defensive Back

    26 Feb 2015 | 3:12 pm
    Once you have established a good stance and inside alignment, with focus on the inside number and the cross hand jam, you are ready to move into teaching your defensive back how to play the football. Press Man Trail Technique for the Defensive Back Defensive back players should be hip to hip going into the transition, focusing on the inside number – not on the head or the feet. The offensive player will release on the outside, and the defensive back will work through the transition into a trail position, with focus on putting a body lean onto the receiver to press him to the sideline. …
  • “Out of Phase” Defensive Back Drill

    13 Feb 2015 | 8:53 am
    So, maybe you’ve done a good jam, but the receiver gets a great release and is able to get open on you and create some space. It doesn’t do you any good to look back and find the ball if you aren’t close enough to the receiver to make a play on it.  This is when the “Out of Phase” defensive back drill comes in handy! “Out of Phase” Defensive Back Drill When you are “out of phase” – in other words when you are in trouble and know you are beat – you want to focus on the V of the neck of the receiver and burst full speed ahead, trying to get…

Press man-to-man is useful for when you want to get into close quarters and line up very close on the offensive receiver, trying to disrupt his route. We call this a press coverage. Today, we are demonstrating one of the most basic drills we do to start out teaching press man-to-man technique.

  • “One Foot Forward” Quarterback Throwing Drill

    25 Jan 2015 | 10:21 am
    Standing throw drills are an excellent tool for quarterbacks to work on their throwing mechanics, as they emphasize good throwing motion and good upper body form. “One Foot Forward” Quarterback Throwing Drill In this quarterback throwing drill, you can take 2 QB’s and place them 8-12 yards apart, with their toes pointing at each other, the lead foot forward. The QB’s will throw the ball back and forth, focusing on good hip and arm technique. The lead foot forward also simulates the release on a sprint out and allows the QB to get a little different hip position on the throw.

Double Team (at the point of attack) Offensive Line Drill In this offensive line drill, you want to have two defenders and two blockers.  The two offensive players at the point of attack are going to focus on knocking one defensive player back.  And then at a certain point, one of the two players will come off of the linebacker… but not until we get movement back off of the football.

    Arsenal and Liverpool target Ezequiel Lavezzi looks almost certain to leave PSG at the end of the season. Lavezzi was late to return from the winter break and it is thought that Laurent Blanc is now happy to sell him this year. And according to the Express, his agent met with Inter Milan club officials to try and secure a move away for his client. Arsenal and Liverpool have been heavily linked with the Argentina international in recent transfer windows, and it is unlikely that they will give up on a deal now they know he is ready to move on.

    Louis Van Gaal has been handed a major blow after Angel di Maria admitted that he made a huge mistake joining the club in the summer. The Argentina international moved to Old Trafford from Spanish giants Real Madrid for a reported 59. 7m but has so far failed to settle in the Premier League. Despite an outstanding start to his career in England, the winger has struggled to revive the form that made him such a hit at the Bernabeu, finding the net on only three occasions in the league, all of which coming during August and September last year. A number of reports have suggested that the…

The Tunisia international produced an outstanding battling display to keep Arsenals forward line at bay, and help guide the French side to a shock 3-1 victory over the Gunners at the Emirates.

    Premier League giants Manchester United and Liverpool have been put on red alert after Porto defender and long-term target Danilo turned down a contract extension. The 23-year-old Brazilian has been a standout performer for Porto in recent years and he has often been linked with a move to one of the top European clubs. And now, according to the latest reports at the Daily Mirror it looks as if the right-back is set to leave Portugal after turning down a contract extension at the club.

    Watch elation go to horror for Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky. He scored a goal, he starts to raise his arms, and then he trips (and flips) over Montreal defenseman Tom Gilbert who is on the ice sliding to prevent the goal Thursday. Check out this video, where Dubinsky suffered an “upper body” injury and did not return to the tilt between the Canadiens and Blue Jackets. This is probably not what the Blue Jackets wanted to see.

    When Paul George suffered a gruesome leg injury in a Team USA exhibition this summer, the assumption was that he would miss the entire 2014-15 season with the Indiana Pacers while rehabbing. Yet that expectation changed several weeks ago — George told Yahoo's own Marc Spears that he had plans to practice by March 1 and return to real-live NBA games some time in the middle of the month. The plan seemed optimistic, but also made the return of one of the NBA's most exciting players much more real.

  • Atlanta Falcons cut RB Steven Jackson

    26 Feb 2015 | 5:26 pm
    In a move most people expected to see, the Atlanta Falcons parted ways with running back Steven Jackson. The Falcons save $3.75 million in salary-cap space by cutting him now but must carry $1.1 million on this year's books for a signing bonus spread over from last year. He's now a free agent and can look for a new home immediately if there's work out there. The 6-2, 235-pound Jackson signed with the Falcons two seasons ago but was limited to 1,250 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns in 27 games. His streak of eight straight 1,000-yard rushing seasons ended after he left the St. Louis Rams,…

Ragan, who is filling in for Kyle Busch in the No. 18 car in the near-term, said it was "iffy" if he'd be able to run the full season in the No. 34 car. "Our situation at Front Row this year was a little iffy on whether we were going to be able to run the entire schedule," Ragan said.

The team also got rid of Brandon Bostick who will be known for his gaffe during the Seahawks onside kick attempt. Now that Ron Zook is now the new special teams coach, head coach Mike McCarthy is willing to use starters for his unit.   “I think we need to adjust our special teams philosophy,” McCarthy said last week at the NFL scouting combine during a lengthy…

    Janis Meredith
    17 Feb 2015 | 6:37 am
    Something happens on a team when the members feel a sense of ownership. I attended a leadership seminar recently where they talked about creating an environment in which a business team feels ownership.  Studies show that when employees feel that ownership in their jobs, they are more accountable for their performance and thus help lead the company to greater success. How can parents and coaches apply that same philosophy of team ownership to youth sports, allowing athletes to have a fulfilling and rewarding sports experience? Here are four simple ways to start helping kids claim ownership.

Set the example by showing your kids how it’s done, and hopefully they will follow your lead. Thank the coaches and refs for their work. The game’s outcome doesn’t matter; the refs and coaches did their job and gave their best effort. Be gracious to the winner. If you know them, make a point to congratulate them. If you don’t, you can still go out of your way to shake a player’s or coach’s hand. Don’t go home and trash talk the opposing team. Or coaches, or refs,…

    Way back when, like twenty years ago, about the only way for the NFL and NBA to achieve parity was to award the top draft pick to the team with the worst record. That was largely because the primary ways to acquire players was either by trading for or drafting them. Now, free agency is clearly a major factor in building a team, and in some cases, particularly in the NBA, quickly at that. Boston got Garnett and Allen to complement Paul Pierce and poof!...A championship. Miami surrounded Dwayne Wade with Lebron James and Chris Bosh and boom!...four Finals and two championships in four years.

Since the Super Bowl is now ancient history, I'll remind you that the sentence is what Lynch repeatedly stated during media day prior to the Seahawks' match-up with New England. Really?

    I was watching the Arkansas Razorbacks - Ole Miss basketball game on television Saturday night. It was played in Oxford, Mississippi and the home-standing Rebels had come back to take the lead and seemingly grab a victory in the final few minutes. But with a 125 seconds left. Arkansas was down by three and one of their more unreliable free throw shooters was at the line for two shots. In most situations, you would think it was likely for Alandise Harris to make one out of two, allowing Ole Miss to keep a two point margin. Instead, he makes them both to cut the lead to one.

As a player or coach going into off-season I’d suggest that you create meaningful goals that are worth fighting for because life (and your opponents!) will constantly test your resolve and level of commitment. If your team goals, or individual ambitions don’t get your heart racing, blood pumping, butterflies circling, or voice crackling when you talk about them, you may need to go back to drawing board and create some new ones. Why? Because it’s easy to create safe and socially acceptable goals that get a polite pat on the back or an attaboy. Those…

    If you want to be an exceptional athlete, then how should you be acting? How does an exceptional athlete behave and act… on and off the court or field? How does an exceptional athlete approach each practice and training session? How does an exceptional athlete treat his teammates and coaches? How does an exceptional athlete act when he receives constructive criticism or feedback from others? How does an exceptional athlete act when he is not playing his best or loses a game? To be exceptional, you need to be the exception and do more than what would be expected from any other athlete.

    Richard Watts
    26 Feb 2015 | 8:30 am
    Too many swimmers are receiving an information overload in relation to their swimming and we are moving away from the fact that swimming is very much a kinaesthetic sport. It does not matter if your stroke is aesthetically pleasing or doesn’t look like the person in the lane next to you as long as it feels right for you. There are really 4 critical points to remember: 1. When you extend your arm at entry ensure your hand catches below shoulder level but is inline with the shoulder. 2. The hand should pass under your face but not over the centre line, elbows pointing at the walls and the…
  • Should I Start Swimming Lessons For My Child Sooner Rather Than Later?

    Richard Watts
    19 Feb 2015 | 2:00 am
    The question on many parents’ lips is ‘when should my child start swimming lessons?’ For me this is an easy question to answer. I feel that children should be introduced to the water as early as possible. There are many reasons for this, and I will cover many of them in this blog. IMPORTANT: Before booking any parent and baby lessons ensure that you properly research the school beforehand. Many believe that teaching mother and baby lessons are as easy as, getting them in the water and playing games. There is a lot more to it than that! If lessons are taught incorrectly it could have…

  • The Hot Chocolate 15k – Running and Chocolate? Yes please!

    18 Feb 2015 | 10:45 pm
    This past Saturday I ran the Hot Chocolate 15K for the second year in a row. I was prepared for the cold because last year was painfully cold. We parked too far away and got out of the car too early, two mistakes I didn’t make again. This year I also came prepared in my Feetures! merino wool socks so my feet wouldn’t feel like little pads of ice like they did last year. This is a fairly hilly 9.3 miles and I knew it would be a good training run for me in the midst of my training for the Nashville Full Marathon. First I have to say that I LOVE the jacket we got instead of a race shirt. It…

I love it for a million reasons. However, I often times do find myself in a rut. Sometimes it is an emotional rut where I am just not motivated.

  • Running Playlist: All I Need Is the Road and My Music

    For many of the miles I have run through the years I have been fortunate enough to have friends to join me.  I often even have friends that are kind enough to text me and tell me to get my butt out of bed because it is time for us to meet!  (After 5 alarms and 2 texts I am up and ready!) For the days and the miles that I do it alone, I have my music.  Refreshing my playlist is something that gives me extra motivation to get out of bed and it gives me more desire to stay out there when I am doing a 20 miler alone.  I am so picky about my music.  I am also moody about my music, some days I…

Are organic foods healthier? Are they safer? Are they worth the extra money if they cost more than conventional foods? How do they taste? And what about those labels touting foods as “sustainable,”…

    Tacko Fall, a 7-foot-5 high school senior from Senegal, thrives on and off the court by Kristen Giddings   TAVARES, Florida__As young players across the country gear-up for the upcoming basketball season, Tacko Fall stands above them all. Literally. The 7’5″ high school senior currently holds the spot as the tallest player in the country, standing two inches over even the NBA’s tallest player, Hasheem Thabeet, who measures 7’3″.

    The UM Hoops Mailbag is a collection of questions tweeted (@umhoops), e-mailed or sent via our Facebook page. Submit your questions and we’ll answer as many as we can.  @jackfl33: I have a theory that Spike is an above the break 3 pt shooter almost exclusively. Does his chart show that? In a word, yes. Only 20% of Spike’s three-point attempts this season have been from the corners and he’s shooting just 14% on those attempts. From above the break, he’s a much more respectable 41%. His shot charts over the last two seasons from ShotAnalytics show a similar trend…

  • For Kameron Chatman, ‘less is more’

    Alejandro Zúñiga
    25 Feb 2015 | 8:15 am
    Perhaps the most surprising part of Kameron Chatman’s struggles this year stem from just how much he was hyped in the first place — not only by his top-40 ranking as a recruit, but by the Michigan coaching staff themselves. When the Wolverines traveled to Italy last summer, Chatman struggled shooting, but John Beilein was quick to heap praise on the wing, who exhibited a solid all-around game overseas. “His basketball IQ has been outstanding,” Beilein said before the trip. “He’s picked up some of our concepts and some of our actions as quickly as anybody we’ve ever had. He’s…

Wisconsin Wisconsin continues to roll through the Big Ten without its starting point guard, but it appears that Traevon Jackson could be coming back soon. Jackson told reporters he plans to play versus Michigan State, although Bo Ryan made it clear that he won’t play until the medical staff clears him. That being said, Jackson should be back sooner than later and the Badgers found a pretty good backup without him. Bronson Koenig has done…

In Five Key Plays, we look at the biggest moments from the upset. 1) Irvin fills the stat sheet The positive signs came early for the Wolverines, as Zak Irvin made his first shot and proceeded to accumulate five points, three rebounds, an assist and a steal before the first media timeout — earning the first of many standing ovations from the Crisler Center crowd.

Whether or not the pitcher in question has been retired for years or out of baseball just a matter of months, it seems like more and more pitchers are trying to make their way back to the show and guide their teams up the MLB rankings. Most are in their mid-late 30’s and have been out of the game for reasons ranging from injury to just straight ineffectiveness, a drop in velocity or loss of control. Either way, something has changed the mind of these four veterans who are attempting a comeback…

    If you have seen this blog before then you are probably familiar with my list. While it is still a big source of motivation / progress check for me, here are a few things that I’d like to accomplish this year.

    The Confidential

  • Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

    24 Feb 2015 | 7:06 pm
    In case you didn’t know, the gentleman above is named Chris Jones. Perhaps you’ve heard of him.  If not and you claim to be a Louisville Basketball fan, then you’ve either been hiding beneath a boulder for the past week or vacationing at the North Pole.  Regardless of your familiarity, the soap opera surrounding the talented yet tumultuous senior point guard finally reached it’s final episode this past Sunday, less than 24 hours removed from a much needed home win over Miami.  And this episode of As The Jones Turns would not have a warm, fuzzy ending.
  • Lineup Card: Snowmageddon Edition

    23 Feb 2015 | 11:30 am
    Lineup Card is a weekly roundup of ACC Baseball. Each week will feature 9 points including power rankings. Well all in all, it was a good week in ACC baseball. Most teams settled in with an opening tournament somewhere down south. Some teams went farther south than they originally imagined which brings us to our first point: 1. How ’bout that snow? Teams north of the mason-dixon usually can’t use their own field until mid-March due to snow. This week though, a few southern teams fell victim to the weather. The south got its yearly dose of “Snowmageddon” and NC State and…
  • Disaster Avoided

    22 Feb 2015 | 3:05 am
    After a week when Mother Nature decided to wreak havoc on the residents in the Kentucky area, it only made sense when a group of Hurricanes dropped into downtown Louisville and the Yum Center yesterday afternoon looking to cause major damage. This particular storm came in the shape of a Miami men’s basketball team that sat firmly on the NCAA Tournament bubble entering Saturday’s slugfest. Miami, a team that decidedly beat Duke on their home floor earlier in the season, entered yesterday as a team that was hungry, looking for something to eradicate. And, for 20 minutes Rick…
  • Wayne’s World

    20 Feb 2015 | 9:08 pm
    Call me fan-crazed or accuse of me having OCD, but I can still remember the day that I heard Wayne Blackshear had verbally committed to play basketball at the University of Louisville. “Scha-wing!” “Party time, Excellent!” “Party On Wayne!” Ok, for the sake of being truthful none of those famous movie quotes sprang from my mouth.  Instead, I can recall texting a few buddies of mine, all die hard UofL fans like myself, in doing my part to spread the good word.  Rick Pitino had landed a future McDonald’s All-American, the toast of high school hoops…
  • Keepin’ Up with the Jones’

    19 Feb 2015 | 5:49 pm
    The soap opera that is Louisville Men’s Basketball took on a new episode over the past 48 hours that will certainly leave it’s mark as one of the great head scratchers of all-time.  Less than 24 hours before a road game at ACC rival Syracuse, Head Coach Rick Pitino informed the local media that senior Chris Jones (3rd on the team in scoring/1st in assists/1st in Grammy award-winning flops) was suspended indefinitely and would not play against the Orangemen. Louisville, a team that already labored to put points on the board at times, suddenly became uber vulnerable on Wednesday…

  • Know your James Mungro Memorial Award nominee: Kyle Ryan, who is playing for keeps

    25 Feb 2015 | 1:49 am
    Kyle Ryan entered the chase for the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending) as an underdog, but the more he reveals himself, the more his chances keep increasing. Ryan isn’t an ideal candidate. He’s a tall skinny pitcher in a world lousy with them. His background is bland: 12th-round pick of the Tigers, worked his way through the system one step at a time. He might be too good: he pitched six games in the majors last year, including one start, and posted a 2.61 ERA. His name get some points for being two first name but overall it’s bland. Yet, Ryan…
  • Know your James Mungro Memorial Award nominee: Angel Nesbitt (plus the competition’s first eliminiation)

    23 Feb 2015 | 7:00 am
    This year’s version of the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending) chase is less than a week old, but it already has a controversy. Today we were supposed to learn about Daniel Fields, the local-boy outfielder who couldn’t hit or stay healthy last year. We’re not. Fields is the first player cut from this year’s competition. He was a strong candidate: good enough and young enough that if he found his stroke the Tigers would be willing to call him up this year. But that was also part of the problem. His repulsive season turned him from a high prospect…
  • Know your James Mungro Memorial Award nominee: Wynton Bernard

    20 Feb 2015 | 11:05 am
    The low number of contestants and long period of evaluation time in the baseball version of the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending) allows a closeness that the football version doesn’t have. Over the next few weeks, each participant will get his own profile post — unless he gets cut. Today we start off with the man first in alphabetical order and, right now, first in the competition: Wynton Bernard. Bernard went to Rancho Bernardo High School in San Diego. The lasting legacy of those high school days is YouTube videos of him crossing over and then dunking…
  • It’s finally that time: Let the 2015 James Mungro Memorial Award competition begin

    18 Feb 2015 | 7:00 am
    One year ago yesterday, we began a chase that introduced us to a skinny man with wispy facial hair named Blaine Hardy. Over the next month we fell in love with this man as he ripped the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending) away from the other competitors. He then went on an unprecedented run, pillaging Triple-A, getting called up to the majors and not only contributing, but leaving the burnt remains of his opponents strung all along American League ballparks. Today Hardy’s reign of joyous terror ends. Pitchers and catchers report to Lakeland on Friday. A new class…
  • Petr Mrazek might actually be even better than the Red Wings think

    16 Feb 2015 | 7:00 am
    (Photo: Bridget Samuels) Sooner rather than later Petr Mrazek is going to make that two-and-a-half hour drive along I-96 from Detroit to Grand Rapids. When he does, it’ll likely be a lot calmer drive than the one he took the other way. There will be no nerves, no moments of self doubt. Mrazek’s teammates, coach and GM all had high praise for him based on his 9-2 record during his 11 straight starts and his play general. The thinking is Mrazek will only go to Grand Rapids because he’s the only one who can go without clearing waivers. The Red Wing can keep depth at an…

  • Green Breweries and Wineries

    17 Feb 2015 | 4:11 pm
    Americans consume 9.4 billion gallons of alcoholic beverages a year: 87 percent beer, 8 percent wine, and the rest spirits. The environmental impact of producing, packaging, and selling all those beverages could make an environmentalist reach for a drink. Breweries and wineries consume large quantities of water, raw materials, and other natural resources. But there’s good news: Green beer is no longer something people drink just on Saint Patrick’s Day. With the rise of the craft beer movement and growing consumer interest in local and sustainable food, more breweries and wineries are…
  • Beer Style Groupings for Newbies

    17 Feb 2015 | 7:44 am
    BeerGraphs recently posted about their difficulties with overlapping beer styles, especially as it pertains to their ranking system. They discussed the idea of grouping styles into “mega styles” to deal with the overlap, and possibly make their rankings more useful. With only a basic understanding of their ranking system and its goals I can’t really speak to the wisdom of that change. Off hand it seems like they could just use multiple styles and mega styles, and people could sort whichever was useful to them. This got me thinking about Stephanie‘s frequent…

  • Redskins sign DL Ricky Jean Francois

    Thomas Threlkeld
    26 Feb 2015 | 6:22 pm
    The Washington have dipped an early toe into free agency, signing DL Ricky Jean-Francois, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts, to a 3-year deal worth up to $9 million, but with only $4 million guaranteed. Including incentives, it’s possible for the deal to reach $11.25 million. The Colts released Jean-Francois on Monday, two years into his 4-year $22 million deal, which he signed after being drafted in the 7th round in 2009 by a certain Scot McCloughan, then General Manager of the San Francisco 49ers. He played two years in San Francisco,  starting five games, before moving on to…
  • Redskins Free Agency/Draft Simulation

    26 Feb 2015 | 10:07 am
    What will the Washington Redskins do this offseason? With the NFL combine now in the rear view mirror, free agency is up next, followed by the NFL draft. Our friends @ FanSpeak have a pair of simulations to help us preview what the Redskins might do, or in this case, what I would do if sitting in the General Manager chair. We used their “Manage the Cap” feature to run free agency and “On the Clock” to execute a mock draft. MOCK FREE AGENCY Before venturing out into the free agent market, we cut seven players, for a cap savings of $17.5 million. The only real serious…

    26 Feb 2015 | 8:09 am
    The Wizards have won only twice in the past month, now losers of five straight after a 97-77 drubbing at the hands of the Timberwolves in Minnesota on Wednesday night. Perhaps Wednesday night’s loss can be contributed to the hype surrounding Kevin Garnett’s return to the T-Wolves. KG with only five points, but added eight rebounds a pair of assists and blocks and a steal along the way. Kevin Martin was on fire with 28 points, while future superstar Andrew Wiggins added 19. Washington played without injured starters Paul Pierce and Bradley Beal, backups Otto Porter and Garrett…

Tampa Bay Bucs: Jameis Winston, QB (Florida State) The most pro ready QB in this draft on tape constantly reminds me of Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger playing inside the pocket . A keen eye by teams in the next two months and by the Bucs post draft must be kept as Winston has had some issues off the field. 2.

  • New York Giants Release a Warrior

    24 Feb 2015 | 5:54 pm
    Today, the New York Giants released long time defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka. In the press release, the Giants describe Kiwanuka as having a “warrior mentality” – and for many seasons he lived up to that praise; he was a steady starter on the defense, even when it was in constant flux. This is a move that, as stated in the past, had to be made as his cap number was just too great for a player on the down slope of his career. His release will allow the Giants space to do things like franchise tag former All Pro defensive end Jason Pierre Paul. Still, it is a sad day losing a…
  • Night of Redemption

    23 Feb 2015 | 10:59 pm
    Four of five from the field for 11 points sounds like an average night but – for a player who has battled through injuries and trying times – it was a night of redemption. Let’s do a quick timeline of Henry “Bill” Walker’s return to the NBA: In high school, Walker was a top recruit and injured his knee for the first time in 2003. He overcame this injury and chose to play basketball at Kansas State University, and again in 2007 got injured. Despite this, him and Micheal Beasley (yeah, the ultimate bust) entered the draft. Walker then proceeded to get…
  • Adrian Peterson to the Cowboys?

    23 Feb 2015 | 4:07 pm
    Around an hour ago, ESPN released a story that Adrian Peterson’s agent told the Vikings that he will never play another down for them. Now begins the speculation: Where will the best running back of this generation go? Well, Jerry Jones has always had interest in bringing Peterson over, and with All Pro running back Demarco Murray set to hit free agency, all signs could point to Peterson having the star on his helmet next season. This now puts a fork in Murray’s quest to get paid by Dallas. It also gives the Cowboys a chip in their pocket that AP will be available and has also…

Despite many disagreements, Danny Ainge did what is best for the franchise.Mavericks general manager Donnie Nelson did what was best for his franchise as he added a piece to a team looking to win another championship.

(in .308 trim) Mountain Ascent is a genuinely radical flight from the brain desensitizing absence of creative ability one can discover on almost any firearm shop’s rack. Where this somewhat restless styled Kimber makes its name isn’t in its wild looks, but instead its weight; 4lbs 15oz. It’s not going to win on value point, nor actually styling and magnificence despite the fact that the machining is grand for a processing plant offering, however on the robust premise of being the lightest…

  • Football Betting Tips: Liverpool To Maintain March On Champions League

    26 Feb 2015 | 6:36 am
    Liverpool are now just 2 points behind fourth placed Manchester United and are fancied to maintain their push for Champions League status by beating Manchester City, whilst Southampton can also keep their Champions League hopes alive by beating West Brom. Liverpool vs Manchester City The bookies odds for this match are quite hard to fathom from a statistical angle as Manchester City haven’t won this fixture since 2003, yet are priced-up at a best-priced 17/11. Meanwhile, Liverpool have won 6 of the last 11 renewals since that City victory with the other 5 all being draws. Liverpool also won…

  • Golf Betting Tips: Rose Revved Up For Honda Classic

    24 Feb 2015 | 10:05 am
    The PGA Tour leaves California and heads to Florida this week where the PGA National course hosts the Honda Classic. The traditionally tough-scoring tournament is set to be played in windy conditions and the winning score is predicted to be around 5-under par. If you’re one of those punters who likes to bet in-running, the back-nine is notoriously harder than the front-nine, especially holes 15, 16 and 17 (known collectively as the Bear Trap) though the 18th is a genuine birdie chance. Rory McIlroy appears for the first time after winning in Dubai a few weeks ago and has already won here as…

    Atletico Madrid must recover from the defeat against Celta Vigo to keep up the pace with their city rivals in the title race. Almeria travel to Vicente Calderon with four points above the relegation zone and after a frustrating draw against Real Sociedad which gave them the rights to the 16th place, the visitors will try to repeat the same result from over a year ago. Juan Martinez took over a relegation threatened Almeria, brought them safety and recorded only 4 defeats in 11 matches.

    It’s Bundesliga redemption time for Borusia Dortmund who travel to Stuttgart, to face the last placed team, which is not them anymore. There’s a four points gap between the two teams, with the only difference being the fact that BVB are now on the 15th place. Speculations have been swimming around the fact that Klopp might want to rest his most important players prior to Champions League, but would that be the wisest choice when you face a team desperate for the three points? During yesterday’s press conference Klopp put these rumours to rest: “We will field the best team against…

(Mandatory Credit: AP Images) In Red Sox Nation, the talk of the town seems to be about the acquisition of top Cuban prospect Yoan Moncada. After outbidding other competitors like the Yankees and Dodgers, the Red Sox signed the 19-year-old switch-hitting infielder to a $31.5 million contract, shattering the record for the largest contract given to an amateur player.

    Can you summarize the NBA season in one chart? With 794 games, more than 152,000 possessions and some 372,000 plays, probably not, but we’ve given it a shot. What you see above is the 2014-15 season’s win probabilities, summarized.At any point in an NBA game, each team has a probability of winning based on the time remaining, the score and the situation (i.e. after a made shot, shooting foul, etc.). In the chart, each team’s in-game win probability is averaged over each minute of regulation time. It’s like watching a win-loss record develop in real time.The win probability model that…

Playing in and winning his sixth straight start since becoming the Sabres ace between the pipes, Neuvirth now has a .952 save percentage in those six starts and has faced 231 shots (an average of 38.5 shots per game). Another solid performance from Neuvirth is what allowed Buffalo to steal yet another game and improve their record to 2-1-2 in their last five games.The…

    The Columbus Blue Jackets host the Buffalo Sabres tonight.  Both teams are coming off shootout losses from Sunday. (Jamie Sabau/Getty Images) The point gap has been tightened to five.  The Sabres, currently sitting at 39 points, have accumulated five of those in the last four games.  Some fans are growing weary that this team could be on the verge of another win streak, while others believe that this small streak of mild success is simply a fad, and that the poor play will pick up shortly.  Edmonton (44 points), plays at Minnesota tonight; a streaking team that is…

    The Buffalo Sabres were able to pick up a point against the league-leading Nashville Predators in a 2-1 shootout loss Sunday night in Buffalo.

With their win coming in a shootout, Nashville has failed to get a regulation win in their three-game road trip and are now 15-10-6 on the road with a 25-3-1 record at home.The first goal of the game, a Sabres goal, wouldn’t come until very late in the second period.

No, I wasn't at the K that night. I am sure in 25 years the attendance for that game will be 200,000 – but I won't be one of them. I attended ALDS 3, ALCS 4, WS 2. What a great post-season for me – and the first I got to witness at the stadium in my life (odd for a man who is 47 years old). Well, was it the high water mark? I'll say it's too early to know.

      Durham Bulls fictional manager Joe “Skip” Riggins once said, “This is a simple game. You throw the ball, you hit the ball, you catch the ball.” The 2015 Royals will definitely be expected to catch the ball. When Alex Gordon, Salvador Perez and Eric Hosmer all take the field it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that these guys can play a little defense. All three guys have won Gold Gloves with Gordon topping the list with four.

He has spoken in the past about his preference to play as a striker and has even asked for a transfer in the final weeks of Ferguson’s time in charge. David Moyes later reverted Rooney back to his preferred role during his ill-fated 10 months reign but under Louis Van Gaal, Wayne Rooney was again asked to play in that deeper role behind the two strikers and he has been simply awesome.

A conference that constantly floods teams into the regional rankings, NEWMAC teams rarely look at seedings as an advantage—it’s just a matter of getting in. BR-53 Springfield College for example has been seeded No. 3 in the tournament three straight years and has found themselves in the championship game each season only to be crowned the runner-up each time. This year will be the fourth time in a row that the Pride will be seeded No. 3, as they look to try…

  • Racism and Football, is football to blame?

    26 Feb 2015 | 2:09 am
    Paris Metro racism incident - Chelsea fans shove black man off train The issue of racism in both football and wider society is a hugely evocative one. Many have strong and differing opinions and there are a variety of offered causes and solutions. There are also others who believe there is not even an issue. The disgraceful scenes on the Paris Metro recently involving ‘Chelsea fans’ has brought the issue back into sharp focus for many possibly on the periphery of the issue. As a white male (I’m also a Chelsea fan) it is probably difficult for me to fully empathise with those on the…

    Before AS Monaco and Arsenal play the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie, there is much that needs to be discussed. Both teams would say that they got favorable matches by drawing the other. Monaco won Group C despite only scoring four goals. However, the team only conceded once during the group stage. Arsenal, in contrast, was tied for the third highest scoring team in the group stage. They scored 15 goals in their six group games. Here are five things to watch for when the two teams face off on Wednesday. Can Arsenal end their Round of 16 Hex? In each of the last four…

    Ali Haggis examines the best 11 players from the weekend's EPL action and picks his team of the week. Thibaut COURTOIS- Chelsea The Chelsea goalkeeper was probably expecting a quiet afternoon at Stamford Bridge against struggling Burnley but after his side went down to 10 men he was called into action- and how he responded. The Belgian was impressive as a last line of defence and made some crucial saves to ensure his side salvaged a point. Emre CAN- Liverpool Can has been growing in confidence and his stock is quickly rising as a central defender. The former creative midfielder is naturally…

    The Academy has lost all credibility in my book. I’m starting to think all the Oscar voters are blind. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has sunk to new lows in its continued condemnation of comedy and, specifically, Bill Murray. St. Vincent was easily the best film I saw in 2014. I wept the first time I saw it. I’ve seen it three times now, and I still cry at the end. Yet the Academy didn’t bother to nominate Murray or St. Vincent for anything — not a damn thing.

  • Why Alice Should Shove Encryption Down Bob’s Throat

    The new, fashionable claim is that privacy is dead. Which is understandable. Even I have made this claim. As it is close to two years since we learnt that the NSA is keeping a very close eye on everyone connected to the Internet — especially if they use online services located in the United States. Yet there seems to be a collective ‘meh’ when it comes to privacy, even if we have a number of options to guard our privacy. Also, any uproar regarding encroachment on privacy tends to be short-lived. I’ve lost count of how many times people have been upset with Facebook and how they…

There is still some good journalism out there, but it’s difficult to come by — a lot of noise is suffocating it. It’s more like journalism is lying in the gutter, slowly bleeding out. But it’s not the loss of blood that is killing it. It’s the alcohol. Journalism is drinking itself to death, like a homeless alcoholic that has given up on life. Everyone walks by, complaining about its body lying there, drunk, bleeding…

  • Balotelli – Liverpool’s wild card

    Hussein J
    20 Feb 2015 | 8:08 am
      A phenomenal talent in Inter Milan, an inconsistent player for Manchester City, a rigid and stubborn player at AC Milan and now a soon-to-be-labelled ‘bad body’ for Liverpool; meet Mario Balotelli, a man they love to hate. Liverpool spent 16 million pounds on the gamble that is Mario, and he has so far produced a return of only four goals to abysmally justify his price tag. While many fans took to the signing of the 24 year-old with a pinch of salt, it was inevitable that wherever Mario goes, rumour mongers and tale twisters follow. However, is that justified? Me thinks not. In the…
  • Jim Harbaugh Hype Machine on Overdrive

    30 Dec 2014 | 3:10 pm
    Michigan finally got their man. It took some seven years, but two poor hires—Rich Rodriguez (2008-2010, 15-22 record) and Brady Hoke (2011-2014, 31-20)—and an abysmal 46-42 record later, the stars aligned properly for the Wolverines to land Captain Comeback, Jim Harbaugh.   Harbaugh’s time in San Francisco was done after a lackluster 8-8 2014 season with the 49ers that included a falling out with management and an apparently toxic locker room, as per Fox Sports. Michigan was in desperate need of a savior after a wretched 2013-2014, filled with embarrassing losses and PR…
  • NFL Week 12, Infuriating Parity

    24 Nov 2014 | 2:44 pm
    The NFL tag line Any Given Sunday has gotten its share of overuse, but in a week where an 0-10 Oakland Raiders team got its first win over the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs (7-4), it’s hard to argue with the notion that the NFL has quality from top to bottom.   At the end of Week 12, the only certainties seem to be death, taxes and a convincing New England Patriots win. The Pats (9-2) have rattled off seven straight and have distinguished themselves as the only truly elite team in the league. Vegas odds reflect this as NE currently sits at around 3/1 to win the Super Bowl,…

    2013-2014 was something of an eventful year for the United States Men’s National Team.   In October of 2013, the Stars & Bars qualified for their seventh straight World Cup and midfielder Graham Zusi was canonized by El Tri fans after equalizing in a meaningless CONCACAF qualifer against Panama—Mexico qualified for Brazil after a two-legged inter-continental win over New Zealand.   The U.S. were drawn into the Group of Death for the World Cup and somehow finished second among the likes of Germany, Portugal and Ghana. This was the pinnacle for the team as their…
  • Philadelphia 76ers, the NBA is Tanktastic

    14 Nov 2014 | 4:02 pm
    The Philadelphia 76ers reached the first of what promises to be many lows for the 2014-15 NBA season against the Dallas Mavericks on November 13. After amassing an impressive 29 first-half points (Dallas led 73-29 at the half), the Sixers exploded for 41 in the second half en route to a 123-70 loss, their 8th straight to start the season.   Words like “laughingstock” come to mind and though the season is still young, discussions about this year’s Sixers being “the worst NBA team ever” are blooming among NBA pundits, including USA Today’s Mike Foss.

    More than anything the latest knee injury for Derrick Rose was a hit to the Chicago Bulls championship dreams for this season.  However, as with anything there is always a ripple effect and it seems Rose going down has put the pressure squarely on head coach Tom Thibodeau. Rumors have persisted for months that there was a growing rift between him and GM Gar Forman in regards to the roster.  It has led to all sorts of speculation from Thibodeau leaving to Forman leaving to the Bulls trading Thibodeau.  The one piece of information that really gave the entire idea of parting ways with a head…

    The relationship between the Cubs and Sammy Sosa is strange and uncomfortable. Like a couple former lovers whose statuses continue to pop up on each other’s Facebook feed and the fans are the friends stuck in the middle being asked to choose sides. Cubs Shouldn’t Need an Apology The Cubs say they will welcome him back, but first he must apologize. Sosa says he wants to be back, but won’t say he’s sorry. It all seems like it could be cleared up in a five minute phone conversation, but stubbornness has prevailed. What doesn’t make sense is why the Cubs want an apology to begin with.

    NBA Players, We Got NBA Players, Who Wants ‘Em?So the NBA trade deadline passed, and lots of stuff happened. It was a serious thing, so many teams went hard at trades and for the most part it looks like most of them came out as better sides too.The Phoenix Suns are the obvious exception. They gave up more than they got back in downgrading point guards from Goran Dragic to Brandon Knight. A pretty sure sign that they don’t back themselves to hold onto the eighth seed (heck, they’ve already lost it since Deadline Day).#HEATnation what you think? Looks good to me...

    Celtic may have been knocked out of the Europa League by Inter Milan tonight, but the Hoops put in a brave performance, one which seems to have impressed the Italian side’s fans. With Virgil Van Dijk sent off in the first half for the Hoops, it took a solid team performance to keep things tight and not allow Inter to dominate the match. Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon was sensational in pulling off a series of world-class saves, unfortunately however, it wasn’t enough and a fine goal from Fredy Guarin gave Inter a 1-0 win. But despite the defeat the Scottish fans were in good…

    Harry Kane has revealed a childhood meeting with Tottenham hero Jermain Defoe inspired him to become Spurs’ next big star. The English striker is in the form of his life, hitting 25 goals in 37 appearances in his first full season as a regular for the White Hart Lane side. He could do nothing to avoid Spurs bowing out of the Europa League tonight to Fiorentina – but he will lead the line as they go up against Chelsea for the Capital One Cup on Sunday at Wembley. It’s been an overnight coming of age for the 24-year-old hitman who is now set to get an England cap in March too.

And that’s exactly what one Dutch commentator found out tonight when Ajax took on Polish side Legia Warsaw in the Europa League. With Ajax in cruise control, leading 3-0 on the night and 4-0 on aggregate it was going to take a real moment of magic from Legia to get back into this one. Unfortunately, when the ball broke loose in Ajax’s half, it fell to Marek Saganowski, who’s shocking effort left a lot to be desired…and the commentator in fits of laughter:

This injury is a critical problem for the Chicago Bulls, as one of the most important things for them was to keep their point-guard healthy until the playoffs come. However, now the team will need to find a way of competing with Rose on the bench. Derrick Rose certainly wasn’t on an MVP level this season.

    I would venture that even the most casual of NFL fans can recall when the New Orleans Saints traded every available pick from the 1999 draft (and then some) to the Washington Redskins in order to select Heisman Trophy winning running back Ricky Williams. For me, the images of Mike Ditka wearing fake dreadlocks and the cover of Sports Illustrated with Williams in a wedding dress are fresh in my mind still to this day. The fact that New Orleans compiled only a 3-13 record in 1999 is significant because, in addition to every available 1999 draft pick they felt compelled to add two more picks…

The agreement is pending a physical.

    If Arsenal defence wasn’t mentally fit, their morale last night was killed by the under-performance of his attacking players as things turned out turmoil-ed.

The Gunners defending was terrible last night ,with Mertesacker the obvious culprit of the disastrous defending. The German international was known for winning aerial duels and reading the attacking play of the opponent perfectly, and not for his agility and pace. However, the defender got it all wrong last…

    Tottenham Hotspur face a crucial trip to Fiorentina in the Europa League on Thursday as they try to reach the last 16 of the competition.

He won two national championships, and was in 11 NCAA Final Fours. He is one of only two coaches to have played on and coached a winning NCAA championship team (can you name the other?)

    With friends like Christine Brennan, Jameis Winston doesn't need any enemies. Writing in USA Today, she paints the profile of a serial misfit and small-time hoodlum who beat the rap on the most serious charge made against him - sexual assault. With all the compassion of your beloved teacher in third grade, she advises Winston to sit down with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and open up about all his past misdeeds, including, one assumes, the rape charge that was never proven. My take on Winston is a little different. IMHO, most of his antics, while irresponsible and juvenile, were…

For anyone not already inclined to take these "expert" analyses with a large grain of salt, here is a reminder why you should. As a rule I pay very little attention to pre-season predictions, as there are some variables (injuries, for example) which are simply impossible to predict.

Even though I was rooting for New England, I feel terrible for Pete Carroll. He will have nightmares about this game for years.  It will also give the media something to write about for years.

    SAVE 30% OFF ALL REEBOK OUTLET ITEMS WITH CODE “SAVEMORE” THROUGH 2/24/15Just for fun, here's my prediction for the Yankees' starting lineup:1)  Gardner:  He doesn't steal as aggressively as Ellsbury but he also has less pop so it makes more sense for him to leadoff.2)  Ellsbury:  Ellsbury fits well in the 2nd and 3rd spot in the order but his speed makes him more valuable batting 2nd as long as the #3 hitter does his job.  If not, Girardi won't hesitate to move Ellsbury down to the 3 hole.3)  Beltran:  I also could have went with Headley here but I'm…
  • Yankees' Monument Park not so exclusive

    21 Feb 2015 | 11:52 am
    Last week the Yankees announced that they will be honoring Andy Pettitte, Bernie Williams and Jorge Posada this season by retiring their numbers and placing their plaques in Monument Park.  All three players have contributed greatly to the Yankees over the years but do they belong alongside such names as DiMaggio, Gehrig, Mantle and Ruth.  In my opinion, none of the three have made contributions worthy of being bestowed with such an honor.  Having a day in their honor, no problem, but retiring their numbers and receiving plaques in Monument Park, truly incredulous.The Yankees…
  • Garrett Jones will be invaluable to Yankees

    20 Feb 2015 | 7:24 pm
    The Yankees acquired Garrett Jones last December as part of the Martin Prado/Nathan Eovaldi trade with the Marlins.  While many fans believe Jones will be nothing more than a decent backup, I believe he will be an invaluable member of the team this season.  Jones has the ability to play first base and right field which immediately makes him very important for the Yankees due to the recent injuries to Mark Teixeira and Carlos Beltran.Garrett Jones ( lefty Jones has hit .253/.314/.450 for his career to go along with an average of 22 home runs, 64 runs scored, and 73…

    Will Stevens has become the first driver to be announced by the Manor F1 Team as they continue to attempt to race in Formula 1 in 2015, possibly in the season opener in Australia next month.

  • Brendan Rodgers: An Apology

    Ian Salmon
    26 Feb 2015 | 12:06 am
    Just when it seemed Liverpool couldn’t get any worse and with large sections of the fans calling for Brendan Rodgers’ head, he found a system that sees us as the form team of 2015. It’s time to say sorry… “It’s the new defensive coach that we got in that everybody thought we needed, that’s what has done the trick.” Okay. We probably deserved that. If I’d taken the stick that Rodgers took from August to December then I’d probably want to make sure that people knew that I was aware of what was being said about me as well, make sure that they were…

    You only really hear about sports photographers when an irate demigod has flattened one of them for having an itchy trigger finger, or they get smashed in the face by a Steven Gerrard thunderbolt. Which is a bit harsh when you consider they make humans who are running, jumping and driving cars look cool as fuck. So  here’s a roundup of the week’s best sports photos… Photo by Mike Hewitt/Getty Images NextEra Energy Resources 250 A bird flies near the car of Ross Chastain, driver of the #4 Flex Shot Chevrolet, during the NASCAR XFINITY Series on February 21, 2015 in Daytona…
  • West Ham: Is The Future Claret & Blue?

    Looking at West Ham now, with Kevin Nolan still stealing a living and BFS infuriating fans, it’s hard to imagine them as a football superpower. Yet the parallels with Manchester City a decade ago cannot be ignored… Back in 2003, if you had publically predicted that perennial under-achievers Manchester City would in the course of the next ten years win the title, gather a few other cups and regularly compete in Europe, you would have been rightly ridiculed. And yet, at the time the seeds for the club’s future success were already evident. Not only did they have a brand new…
  • 7 Times Sepp Blatter Looked Guilty

    In a move that surprised nobody, Sepp Blatter and FIFA have confirmed that their four week orgy of corruption, Human Rights offences and the ill-treatment of female and gay fans will be held in Qatar across November and December 2022, thus disrupting domestic leagues the world over. The news has resulted in anybody who’s anybody writing an open letter to Sepp, or abusing him in 140 characters on Twitter. Do you think he cares? Does he shite, but if you want to join in he’s @SeppBlatter. Here he is looking like different types of criminal. That’s not to say we think…

    His power and goalscoring ability light up the Premier League, but is Manchester City’s lynchpin hindering the Champions European ambitions? Perhaps no-one could have imagined what Yaya Toure would become after his £28m move from Barcelona to Manchester City. After the rather anti-climatic career of Robinho at the Etihad there was a worry that City were simply a mercenary haven. However unlike Robinho, Toure was built for English football. Although surplus to requirements at Barca under Guardiola the Ivorian was perfect for the demands of the Premier League; his athleticism and…

  • PICS: Tom Brady Steps Up His Offseason Workout By At Least 300 Pounds

    25 Feb 2015 | 2:56 pm
    Robert Deutsch/USA TODAY Sports Okay, so there may be a little fiction behind that headlines… okay, maybe alot. Earlier this month we poked a little fun at Tom Brady, when he posted a picture to his Facebook page of him working out with his “trainer.” It looked like a great time, but I felt that Brady could be pushing himself a little bit more in the weight room. Maybe he heard us, because he definitely increased his workload. Brady was having some fun on Facebook today and posted the perfect photoshopped picture of him planking with Vince Wilfork on his back. In full pads.
  • Sad News & Players React: Derrick Rose Injures Knee Again & Will Require Surgery

    24 Feb 2015 | 9:17 pm
    Jennifer Stewart/USA TODAY Sports Whenever an athlete gets injured, it’s always a sad moment. But the latest injury to Derrick Rose is definitely a crushing blow to the Chicago Bulls and the league. According to ESPN, Derrick Rose had said he was experiencing some pain in his right knee early Tuesday. By the end of the day in Chicago, it was announced that Rose had a torn meniscus and will need surgery. Rose is one of my favorite players in the league, and I was excited to see him start to regain his form. When he was trying out for Team USA last year, you could see the flashes…

Marshawn Lynch is the star in this promotion for a movie about his life titled, “Family First”: The Marshawn Lynch Story. According to the YouTube video’s description, it’s only a promotion to spark interest in this bio picture about the Seattle Seahawks running back. I, for one, am definitely interested in seeing this film be made, because if the “promotional”…

  • PICS: It Pays To Be Fast As Three Players Win $100k For Fastest 40 Times

    23 Feb 2015 | 7:04 pm
    It took these three players less than 4.4 seconds to win $100,000. Brian Spurlock/USA TODAY Sports With the NFL Combine underway and with many players who are just grateful to be there, these particular three players had a little more incentive to perform faster than the others. Trae Waynes, Phillip Dorsett and Kevin White each won $100,000 from their sponsor, Adidas. In the past, Adidas only paid their top-fastest player $100,000, but this year they widened that field to three. It really does pay to be fast. And not only did they get paid, they also got to meet Snoop Dogg himself, who also…
