    When Donald Sterling dissolved the Sterling Family Trust, the entity that ran the Clippers, he was trying to prevent the sale of the team to Steve Ballmer. It's pretty simple: if the trust did not exist, it couldn't sell anything to anyone. Only, it might not be that simple. According to testimony from Darren Schield, the chief financial officer of the Family Trust, the dissolution could cause several banks to find the trust in default on up to $500 million in loans, which Sterling could not repay without selling the team.

  • Witness: Sterling needs Clippers sale to pay debts (Yahoo Sports)

    21 Jul 2014 | 9:27 pm
    The chief financial officer of Donald Sterling's properties said Monday that the billionaire may be forced to sell a large portion of his real estate empire to cover $500 million in loans if he persists in refusing to sell the Los Angeles Clippers for $2 billion. Darren Schield, who oversees the finances of The Sterling Family Trust, testified Monday that three banks are ready to recall their loans to Sterling because of his decision to dissolve the trust. His move was designed to rescind his signed agreement for the sale of the Clippers, a team he bought for $12 million. Schield said if…

Ortiz matched Yastrzemski with a two-run blast to center off left-hander Brad Mills in the fourth, then broke the short-lived tie with another two-run shot off Mills in the fifth, his 21st and 22nd homers of the season. Ortiz's first homer ended his 0-for-18 skid against Toronto and an 0-for-11 slump overall. Mike Napoli followed Ortiz's second shot with his…

    I had occasion to watch part of The Open Championship over the weekend. I heard two golfers interviewed as part of the coverage and they both said that part of their “game plan for the course” was to attack the Par 5 holes and try for birdies there. The ESPN interviewer nodded when they said this as if a pearl of wisdom had just dropped from the firmament. So, let me ask: Exactly how is that “game plan for the course” any different from every other game plan for every other course in a pro golf tournament? Personally, I think that “game plan for the course” is not nearly as…

    A couple of days ago, I was talking about the mid-season status of baseball and that provoked an inquiry from a long-term reader of these rants who lives in California and is a huge Dodgers’ fan. He wondered what I thought about the likelihood of a “Freeway World Series” between the Dodgers and the Angels. I told him that at this point of the season that was no more or less likely than a “Freeway World Series” in Northern California between the A’s and the Giants – assuming that there is a freeway of some sort that connects/runs between the two cities. I am sure he was not…

However, before turning to the sport, there are reports of a new technological innovation for baseball that will make its debut at Target Field – site of the All-Star Game – very soon. In Target Field, there will be self-serve beer machines. Here is how it works: You acquire a card to operate the machine and put money on the card; basically, it is a debit card that only works in one place. Then you go to the machine and dispense beer at so many cents per…

    Personally, I like Tony Romo.  I appreciate his talent, and I respect his desire to play even when hurt. However, I propose three reasons why Tony Romo will not lead Dallas to a Super Bowl win. The owner and General Manager of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones, is a detriment to the success of the Cowboys. No one is sure if he is also the Head Coach, because his ownership style is dictatorial. No fan needs to look farther back than after the 1993 Super Bowl win.…

Two years ago it was RGIII who was the toast of the NFL as he led his Washington Redskins to the division title. Last year, it was Nick Foles turn as he carried the Philadelphia Eagles to the title throwing 27 touchdowns with only two interceptions. The elder statesman of the group is Eli Manning, who won the division three years ago and has two rings to show for his effort.…

He has a chance to be a red zone target along with tight end Greg Olsen to help Cam Newton have another solid season. If the Panthers plan on a repeat trip to the postseason the rookie must step up quickly and solidify his role as a playmaker.…

Tony Dungy, I mean.” – Sandy Y. “Well, considering the last four drafts Tony Dungy consulted on with the Colts they used their top picks on Mike Pollak, Anthony Gonzalez, Joseph Addai and Marlin Jackson, it’s probably best for everyone if Dungy stays far away from draft decisions.” – Todd G. “Seems like Dungy has some bigotry issues towards special team players who are also situational defensive…
  • Browns Trying Out Local Homeless Men at Wide Receiver

    DJ Gallo
    21 Jul 2014 | 8:10 am
    The Cleveland Browns are holding an open tryout for local homeless men today in hopes of uncovering some wide receiver talent.  “It’s no secret that we have some issues at wide receiver,” said general manager Ray Farmer. “It’s also no secret that the advice of a homeless man caused us to draft Johnny Manziel. So the thought was that we may as well tap the homeless for wide receiver talent.” Farmer then made a point of saying the homeless receiver initiative was “100-percent the idea of [Browns owner] Jimmy Haslam. I had nothing to do with…

    When we got our first look at the Dumb And Dumber To trailer a few weeks back, opinions varied. Some liked it and thought it was grand, while others felt it was an instant mistake. Most were left with old lady musk on their face. Now we just have Jeff Daniels appearing on Letterman to talk about the movie a bit.

    Juventus fans could be forgiven for wondering what will become of their beloved Old Lady following the shock resignation of Antonio Conte last week. The former captain lifted them from consecutive seventh placed finishes to three straight titles, meaning any coach who replaced him was likely to be viewed with immense skepticism. Last season’s 102-point tally—an all-time record in Serie A—means they begin as clear favourites to once again emerge triumphant, but it is impossible to overestimate Conte’s impact upon the current squad.

The report contradicts quotes given by Arsene Wenger, who recently confirmed he isn't looking to add further attacking options after the signing of Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona.

  • LA Galaxy v Manchester United: How United Will Line Up

    LA Galaxy v Manchester United will see Louis van Gaal lead the Reds onto the pitch for the first time. The truth is no one yet knows how United will line up. Van Gaal's recent history makes it difficult to guess the formation he will use. We thought we knew that the starting XI would come from the 25-man squad taken on tour, but Javier Hernandez has been added to the party, so there are now 26 in contention. A definitive prediction of Van Gaal's selection seems an impossible task. There are too many questions for which we do not yet have the answers. The first question is that of formation.

    22 Jul 2014 | 12:20 am
    Matt Barnes, Jared Dudley and Reggie Bullock. That is what the Los Angeles Clippers' depth chart at small forward looks like. Not exactly a trio that strikes fear in opposing teams. Unfortunately, the Clippers have already used both salary cap exceptions, leaving a trade and the league minimum left to improve the position. While Barnes plays with high energy and loves to slash to the basket, his shooting is inconsistent and he doesn’t have enough defensive ability to slow down the top small forwards in the league. Dudley came to the Clippers last season via trade, but he never quite…

    There is no clearer example of the disconnect between NASCAR and its teams then the fight earlier this year over the procedures to cool cars down during qualifying. NASCAR refused to allow the use of cooling boxes, so teams had jerry-rigged a system that created a dangerous on-track situation for the drivers. NASCAR summoned the crew chiefs from every Sprint Cup organization to hash out a solution. The teams were almost unanimously in favor of using the cooling boxes, but NASCAR officials on that conference call in March wouldn't budge.

Now that he’s the lead back, expect him to be a player recommended by the BetOnIt.org on a near weekly basis. Last year Gerhart had one game with double-digit carries.

I built my season around the Tour, and the team has supported me every step of the way.

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. They had a new face of the sport and someone to carry the PGA Tour…
  • Alternative Medicine In Sports: Energy Management and Injury Prevention

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

Sam, a standout college player from the University of Missouri, became the first openly gay player that will eventually be in the NFL. Of all social issues, perhaps nothing garners more attention in today’s media than gay rights, and Sam’s coming out in early February set the social media world ablaze.

    “This is, without question, a defining moment in his career," coach Urban Meyer said days before a primetime bout with the Badgers and their fearsome running attack last September. Grant proved Meyer right: the middle linebacker filled the stat sheet with seven tackles, a sack and a tackle for loss. But the night, a 31-24 win that gave Ohio State its 17th-straight victory, exposed the beginnings of a defense that would eventually come undone before the end of the season. For Grant, it was a mirage of the kind of success that’s eluded him for the better part of three years. Ankle and back…

    After going undrafted a month ago, Aaron Craft's chances of making an NBA roster seemed improbable, but his stint with the Golden State Warriors' summer league team completely reversed that notion.  There's no guarantee he will appear at Warriors' training camp in the fall, but they would be wise to extend that invite. Craft has already cleared one of the biggest hurdles for any undrafted player by winning over Golden State's coaching staff. Even before the Warriors hired him, former TNT and CBS basketball analyst Steve Kerr was a Craft admirer:  What position does Aaron Craft play, you…

  • Setting Triathlon Goals – Racing Happy

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

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

  • My One Regret About My 2013 Triathlon Season

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

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

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

    The Business of Sports

  • Player Insurance and Title IX

    russell@thebusinessofsports.com (Russell Scibetti)
    17 Jul 2014 | 4:58 pm
    Tweet Earlier today I read an interesting article on how Texas A&M was able to essentially discourage one of their top players from entering the NFL Draft by paying for his insurance policy. The basic idea with these types of policies is to cover against the risk of career ending injury and potentially losing out on future earnings by staying in school for another season. It’s becoming more common for players to take out these types of insurance policies themselves, but the premiums can be quite expensive. However, in this case, Texas A&M is paying for the policy, not the player.

While I’m sure this hashtag does trend on its own during Manchester United matches, today it’s there because it’s being promoted by Chevrolet FC, and account that was created back in 2012 around the time when Chevrolet signed their official deal with Man U to become the official shirt sponsor starting in 2014, which by the way will cost them about $70M per year until 2020-21.

Here are some key findings from the study: It’s all about Facebook in Brazil, with the social network being far and away the most consumed overall, and by a 2-1 margin on match day. In Brazil, 9/10 fans are more likely to take action (purchase) if they “like” or follow a brand. That is 20% higher than in the US. American soccer fans engage with YouTube at a 28% higher rate than Brazilian…

  • No doubt Cook is our leader, says England asst. coach Farbrace

    21 Jul 2014 | 3:14 am
    England assistant coach Paul Farbrace has backed England captain Alastair Cook, saying that the opener is very much the leader of the side and there is still hope for the hosts against India. “Cook is feeling that a score is close, and you saw that he fought and scrapped and worked as hard as he possibly could. There is absolutely no question that he is our leader,” Farbrace said.

    South Africa pace bowlers Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel grabbed four wickets each to lead the tourists to a 153—run win over Sri Lanka on Friday in the first game of their two-Test series. Steyn grabbed 4—45 and Morkel 4—29 as the Proteas bowled out Sri Lanka for 216 on Sunday after being set a target of 370 to win. The pace duo swung the ball effectively on a Galle pitch that usually helps spinners rather than pace bowlers. Sri Lanka slipped badly from 110—1 overnight, when a keen contest seemed to be in the offing with Kumar Sangakkara leading the charge. Sangakkara was the highest…

The incident was not telecast but seen at the end of the day’s play. Philander did not contest the charge.

    The 2014 World Lacrosse Championships wrapped up on Saturday night with Canada defeating the United States. It wasn’t a historic or monumental upset, but is certainly an upset. Perhaps it’s fitting that in an era of growth and parity in the sport that the tournament ended the way it did. Here are some of my takeaways from Saturday’s title game along with the tournament as a whole. 1) Canada had a perfect game plan, and executed Canada figured the best way to stop a high-powered United States offense was to keep the ball from them. It’s like an NFL team running the ball to keep Peyton…

True, the Yankees have suffered tremendous injuries, losing 80% of their Opening Day starting rotation.

    New York Yankees World Series 2009 Game 6 049 (Photo credit: Affiliate) The New York Yankees have 68 games, 41 at home and 27 on the road, left in the 2014 regular season. Right now, the Yankees are 47-47, five games back in the AL East compared to 3.5 games in the wild card. This leaves the Yankees in striking distance to get a postseason berth, but things have to improve. The Yankees will have to get better without ace Masahiro Tanaka for at least the next six weeks, but if Shane Greene’s arm continues to impress it could soften that blow a tad. But what seems most vital is that Brain…

    2014 Yankee Stadium Blueprint If anybody can relate to the saying when it rains, it pours it would be the 2014 New York Yankees literally. Ironically, it seemed almost proper that the Yankees lose, 3-1 to the AL East leading Baltimore Orioles in four and a half innings. It was the last game of the unofficial first half of this season. The rain-out leaves the Yankees at 47-47 heading into this All-Star Break, and puts them five games back from the top spot in the division. Mother Nature took the Yankees chance away to be to three games behind, which in turn means they would not be a mediocre,…

  • Another One Run Game, But A Win Is A Win!

    20 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    The Red Sox had rookie Rubby De La Rosa on the mound, but they also had the excitement and energy of the return of Shane Victorino from the DL. Victorino was activated earlier in the day and Mookie Betts was optioned back to Pawtucket as the corresponding move.  De La Rosa pitching 7 strong innings and a towering moon shot of a HR put the Sox ahead by a measly run.  The Sox had another game decided by a single run, but I will admit I find that statistic slightly less annoying and troubling when the Sox win those one run games. The game started with Jackie Bradley Jr flashing both his glove…

    Kanye West’s “Yeezy” line with Nike is one of the most successful sneaker collaborations of all-time. The producer turned rapper turned fashion designer managed to create some kicks which resonated with the sneakerhead community and can now fetch thousands of dollars on the secondary market.

    Now that the World Cup is over, we’re truly at a dead point in the sports world. NFL training camp will be in full swing by the end of the month, but preseason football is more scary than entertaining, as you can only hope and pray that your team’s best players don’t ruin the regular season by picking up a preseason/training camp injury. But this dead period is also unique to any other time of the year because all of the champions from regular seasons that started in 2013 have been decided — the NFL, NCAAF, NCAAB, MLB, NHL, and the NBA all have their victors.

    Single game tickets for the upcoming Seattle Seahawks’ season went on sale Monday morning, and many fans camped out to get first dibs on the few available seats left at CenturyLink Field. As expected, some San Francisco 49ers fans joined in, presumably to snag tickets for the highly anticipated matchup in Seattle on December 14th. Also on hand for the camp out was Blitz, the Seahawks mascot, who entertained the crowd — many of whom we’ll assume were holdovers from Richard Sherman’s softball game — throughout the morning. At one point, a rotund 49ers fan decided…

Teams from all over the world came to Seattle’s Key Arena to battle it out for the first place prize of roughly $5 million.

  • Can Uruguay Win Without Luis Suarez?

    Richard Murray
    26 Jun 2014 | 1:16 pm
    FIFA released a statement today saying that Luis Suarez is suspended for 9 matches, as well as for 4 months from any football related activity.  This is quite a harsh suspension, but considering this is Luis Suarez’s third offense for biting an opponent we all knew it was going to be a significant suspension. The question now becomes does Uruguay still have a chance at World Cup success without their star striker?

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

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

    Nostalgia is a dangerous thing for any person to deal with. The happy memories are often followed by equally sad memories, or a longing to get back to the happy memories. It can be triggered with a simple song lyric or even driving by an old restaurant. Nostalgia happens. It's unavoidable.Unfortunately, Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor seems to live in nostalgia. Last off-season Taylor named former head coach Flip Saunders as the team's president, despite very little evidence suggesting Saunders would be well suited for the job. And today, he allowed Saunders to become the Head Coach…
  • Kevin Love, We Hardly Loved You

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

With new offensive coordinator Dave Christensen taking on the role of tight ends coach, look for these big fellas to be relied upon in the passing game, especially in RedZone situations. With Jake Murphy leaving school early for the NFL, the Utes will rely upon a combination of TE’s to fill that void. Coming off a shortened season in 2013, Westlee Tonga (6’4 252 SR) will look to make his mark in the PAC 12.

But I am convinced that McIlroy will finish his career with more majors than Tiger Woods. Now that, I accept, is a big, big call. After all, Woods has 14 majors to his name, four short of the record set by Jack Nicklaus, and second in the all time list. McIlroy is 11 majors away from Woods, assuming Tiger fails to add another one to his collection. Let's address that issue first. People in golf insist Woods…

  • Dustin Ackley robs homer with leaping grab, joins 'catch of the year' discussion

    Mike Oz
    22 Jul 2014 | 1:04 am
    You'll excuse Dustin Ackley if he's not as graceful as some of the outfielders who often get associated with great leaping catches. Ackley, the Seattle Mariners left fielder these days, was a second baseman until mid 2013. But his impressive leaping grab Monday night to steal a home run from Travis d'Arnaud of the New York Mets, proved that Ackley is a real outfielder now. This didn't have the elegance of Mike Trout stealing a homer and Ackley's landing could use some work, but there's no arguing with the results — he sized up the homer, jumped, caught the ball over the fence and brought it…

The second one ended Shoemaker's night and was also the difference in the O's 4-2 victory. Said Jones about Shoemaker after the game: ''I didn't know anything about him, but that's what scouting reports are for,'' Jones said. ''We…
  • Boxer Tyson Fury mistakenly challenges Liverpool Ladies' Lucy Bronze on Twitter

    Brooks Peck
    21 Jul 2014 | 11:42 pm
    Frustrated by opponent Dereck Chisora pulling out of Saturday's scheduled heavyweight bout with a fractured hand, boxer Tyson Fury took to Twitter and attempted to call out the next man on his list, Deontay Wilder. But instead of using Wilder's @BronzeBomber Twitter handle, the undefeated, 6-foot 9 Fury ended up using the @LucyBronze handle of Liverpool Ladies defender Lucy Bronze instead. After former heavyweight champ David Haye twice backed out of fights against Fury under similar circumstances, the Manchester born fighter was apparently too incensed by having a match crumble at the last…
  • Yankees pitcher Shane Greene commits three errors, including awful toss to first

    Mike Oz
    21 Jul 2014 | 11:30 pm
    The good news, we suppose, is that New York Yankees rookie pitcher Shane Greene didn't finish Monday night's game on the disabled list. Given the Yankees luck with starting pitchers this season, that's something.  So that's the silver lining, here's the reality: Greene had a really rough night fielding his position during the Yankees' 4-2 loss to the Texas Rangers. He made three errors, and none on plays that were especially hard. • Greene dropped a ball in the second inning while running to cover first. • He fielded a comebacker later that inning, a rather routine play. He did the right…

    As the court battle between Donald Sterling and his wife Shelly Sterling continues, the fate of the Los Angeles Clippers looks increasingly uncertain. Two weeks ago, we saw the beginning of the case to decide control of the Sterling Family Trust — which, for the NBA's purposes, will also decide if Mrs. Sterling can sell the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for a record sum. Over the course of a few days, Donald Sterling confirmed virtually everything negative about his association with the world's largest basketball league, engaging in activities and making comments ranging from…

The loss left the once proud Rio side bottom of the table after a run of just one win in 11 games. The fans lay in wait for Santos, who played for English Premier League side Arsenal from 2011-13, after the game in Porto Alegre and kicked and punched him, he revealed, as the team prepared to fly back to Rio. “I was kicked and punched.

Many people believe that there’s no way Smith can play in the triangle offense. And to make matters worse, Smith is part of a log jam at the shooting guard position with players that are younger than him. Smith was on ESPN2′s First Take and said that he would understand if the Knicks trade him. “No. Absolutely not. The way I was playing, I was playing like a person who didn’t want to be there,” Smith said.

  • 5 Core Values Every Youth Sports Team Should Have

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

    21 Jul 2014 | 6:56 am
    Barefoot running has become a popular trend in recent years, infusing the market with many options for barefoot and minimal footwear. While running in these shoes may seem exciting and interesting, they also increase the workload that the body is used to doing, and force the body to stabilize and support itself in new ways. Inadequate strength and stability open the door for injuries to occur. Use these tests to assess whether or not you’re ready for a minimal ride.

  • The Open Championship Preview

    Alex
    15 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    In 2006, Tiger Woods decided to play the British Open at Royal Liverpool Golf Club hitting only one driver the entire tournament. That year, the temperatures were in the 80s and there was very little rain, which made the fairways firm and dry causing the ball to roll over one hundred yards. Woods knew that if he hit his driver he would lose precision and it would lead to big numbers, thus he was more aggressive in his approach and used many irons hoping to hit his fairways. This strategy led him to victory and his third Open Championship title.  This year, the Open returns to the Royal…

  • 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,…

    Gamblers, bettors, and oddsmakers seem to universally take issue with college football’s Top 25, whether it’s the Associated Press or the USA Today Coaches’ Poll. These lists can have a lot of impact on the betting market, as casual bettors back public favorites because of their ranking and the perception attached to said ranking. The media will tout something as an “upset” because a ranked team goes down to an unranked team, but that unranked team was the favorite anyway. Bettors shouldn’t completely ignore these lists because there can be valuable information mined from them,…

So one of my top 3 tips would be that if you’re doing a open water swim and it’s a little chilly, I’d get in the water before you do your race, just so you can acclimatise yourself and acclimatise your body to the temperature of the water, and then get back out and do a bit of a land warm up and then you’ll be ready to do your race, you wont even feel the cold if it’s cold. 2. A second tip for me would be if your a little wary of a mass start, if you’re worried about being hit or getting swum over or something like that,…

    Strength training can be hugely beneficial to swimming performance, whether you’re an elite level athlete training for an international even or a club level swimmer looking to improve your 100m backstroke PB. However, as with any strength training programme for a specific sporting discipline, it is important that you focus on incorporating movements and lifts that are relevant to the mechanics of your sport. By that I mean don’t head to your computer, Google ‘strength training’, and print off any old workout. And while that 20 stone Lithuanian gentleman in your gym might be able to…

I have always worn one of Saucony’s neutral, cushion running shoes. Years ago I started with the Grid Webb which eventually became the Grid Triumph. After one revision of the Triumph I didn’t care for, I switched to the Saucony Ride . I have pretty much been a huge fan since the switch. The Ride is actually a less expensive shoe than the Triumph, yet to me offers the same comfort at an even lighter weight. I can’t even begin to…

One thing I asked her to throw out was a TRAY of chicken (but I just said “the chicken”).

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

    21 Jul 2014 | 8:40 am
    The 2014 College Football season kicks off on Thursday, August 28th with six games, highlighted by Texas A&M at South Carolina. 5Dimes released Week 1 lines very early on, and more recently CG Technologies posted point-spreads for every week 1 game. Perhaps even more interesting are the 2014-15 NCAAF Futures and 4-Team Playoffs Odds, which tell us which teams are most likely to contend for the National Championship. While Florida State is the early favorite to repeat, much of that is due to the lack of competition in their own conference, the ACC. Bovada has posted College Football…

Bovada was early to post futures for all eight NFL division winners for this upcoming season.

No, every great performance becomes proof that a player is capable of playing that well again, which undoutedly makes him someone to invest in. But that's just not always the case.

The other day a coach was telling me that he has a slight spin on this drill that also addresses the hesitation problem that some players face.

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

On top of that… Wednesday was the halfway point of the challenge. I feel like it has really given us a boost to work even harder now that we are closer to the finish than the start. Week 27 started with a training session, in the kitchen, on Monday 30th June and finished at ISH, at 10pm, on Sunday 6th July 2014. The highlights video is a little longer this…

    Week 26 means that we are almost at the halfway stage of the challenge and we are still pretty pleased with how Sam is progressing. He has come a really long way since we started on 1st January and has definitely made the transition from “basement” player to competent league player. I’m confident that if he was to stop now and start playing in the local leagues he would do okay in the middle leagues. However, we are trying to turn Sam into a competent player at the national tournaments and give him a top 250 ranking. He is certainly a long way off that level at the moment…

    Week 25 was a bit of a gentle week. Sam’s back was playing up again so we were taking it really easy to make sure we didn’t aggravate it any further. Then he was away for a wedding Friday-Sunday, so we had a few days off too. Sam’s back trouble meant that we had to spend the week working on aspects of his game that were less “intensive”. Things like service, pushing, blocking and flicking. We tried to avoid any big shots or smashes that could make things worse. Sam saw the physio on the Friday so hopefully he’ll be back to full strength very soon. Week 25…

From a simple game where one performs various tricks with a football using different parts of the body, it has become a widespread sport and is currently being practiced by thousands of trained professionals the world over.

    A sport is more than just a game. It is more than just fighting over a ball, scoring, not missing, reaching the finish, or having the best routine – it is a way of life. Transcending and conveying the excitement, the gains, the passion, and the life in the sport for even those outside the playing field to experience have always been the aim and the challenge for sports entrepreneurs. Sports entrepreneurship can, of course, take many forms, each one dealing with a broad range of specialties.

  • Beating the system: Can the Red Wings increase their shootout prowess with better shot choice?

    Mike
    19 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    When we last convened, we established that an eight percent increase in SPDO equals one shootout winand that the Red Wings’ poor shooters cost them two to three points last year, which led to the question: What’s the best way for the Red Wings to increase their shooting percentage, and in turn, their SPDO? The answer is complicated. The problem with shootouts is sample size. The average team plays in only 10 of them a year. If you keep the same three shooters and goalie for every shootout, that’s only 10 shots per shooter and 30 shots faced by a goalie (barring any extra…

    On Monday, we determined that on average a team has 10 extra points* available to it per season due to the shootout. The goal for NHL teams then should be to put them in the best position to gain as many of those 10 possible points total in the shootout. How do they do that? Well, the first step is to find a measure of success. The problem with shootouts is there aren’t an equal number of opportunities for each team. The Capitals had 21 shootouts last year. The Predators had six. Because of these types of discrepancies, we need to deal strictly in percentages: win percentage, shooting…

    21 Jul 2014 | 3:33 pm

He didn't start in high school until four games into his senior season. DeMarco Murray as a senior rushed for 1,947 yards and 27 touchdowns and also caught 22 passes for 624 yards and 7 touchdowns. As a senior Adrian Peterson rushed for 2,960 yards on 252 attempts, an average of 11.7 yards per carry, and 32 touchdowns.   DeSean Jackson caught 60 passes for 1,075 yards for 15 touchdowns his senior year at Long Beach Poly.

    Seems the skies are starting to clear around MSG for the New York Knicks. Newly appointed head of basketball operations Phil Jackson has already made major changes to the Knicks organization that left much to be desired last year. Coaching Change: Mike Woodson was the first change that needed to happen to change the culture in the Knicks locker room. Once Woodson was fired, Phil Jackson turned to Derek Fisher to coach the Knicks with a knowledge of Jackson’s “triangle offense” and years playing for Jackson when he was coach in LA – it will make sure there is no…

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

She still has to take on Epsom runner-up Tarfasha, who beat her a nose in the Oaks, but Volume didn’t see a racecourse until August last year and is improving rapidly, which was further suggested by the money that came for her at Epsom. Other dangers include the Aidan O’Brien posse, with Ryan Moore riding Irish 1,000…

    The Open Championship rolls into Royal Liverpool this week for the first time since 2006, which is the only previous time the course has hosted the Open since 1967. A look at the 2006 leaderboard reveals a lack of British players, with only Anthony Wall (tied 11th), Robert Rock (tied 16th) and Greg Owen (tied 22nd) posting a top-25 finish. The rest of the top-25 was made up of six Americans, six Australians, three South Africans, two Argentineans, two Asians and three Continental Europeans. With only a few more Australians in the field, the fact that six of them finished in the top-25 is too…

    There are three different ways to display betting odds for the outcome of any event. The one you most commonly use will be the one with which you are most comfortable, but it is useful to understand them all as you never know when you may need them. If you are new to betting then this will also be a great overview to the whole world of odds and how they can be displayed. Fraction odds These are the classically used odds. Most high street and classic bookies use these odds. As the name suggests in this case the odds are displayed as a fraction. The two parts of the fraction are the amount you…

  • Russia vs Algeria (World Cup Recap, 26.06.2014)

    bookie punisher
    30 Jun 2014 | 4:05 am
    On June 26 we watched the final Group H matches, which decided the fate of two teams to advance to the Round of 16. As we all know, it will be Belgium, the group’s leader with the total of 9 points, and the runners up Algeria with 4 points. The main struggle was between Russia and Algeria because both teams had a chance to qualify; it all depended on their performance during yesterday’s match. Eventually, Algeria came from the behind and draw with Russia, thus, making it to the next round for the first time ever. In two previous matches, Russia scored only one goal against Korea and ended…

    Russia and Algeria will meet in the final clash on Thursday 26th. They will fight for the place in the Round of 16; meanwhile, Belgium, the Group H confident favorite, have already made it through. Both Russia and Algeria have pretty much the same chances, but the main difference is that Algeria were relatively good throughout the World Cup group stage, while Russia were relatively bad. These two teams met before only once and the match ended in a draw. As long as Korea doesn’t stand any chances against Belgium, a draw works perfectly for Algeria. At the moment, they have three points that…
  • ROLAND GARROS FINAL: SHARAPOVA VS HALEP – RECAP

    10 Jun 2014 | 4:09 am
    This Saturday we watched the pretty much legendary Women’s French Open final played between Maria Sharapova and Simona Halep. Everyone agreed this final was spectacular and both players showed the highest level of performance. Maria Sharapova won her second Roland Garros title with the score 6-4, 6-7(5), 6-4; the first title she got in 2012 when she defeated Sara Errani (6–3, 6–2). All in all, she played 11 French Opens, whereof 3 were finals. It’s worth mentioning that it was the first 3-set-final played since 2001 (Jennifer Capriati defeated Kim Clijsters). It was an epic battle…

    This year, Roland Garros has brought many surprises and one of them is that Serena Williams and Li Na didn’t even get to the semifinals at that making Maria Sharapova the number-one-favorite of the tournament. Simona Halep is the biggest breakout of the French Open; she showed great performance and reached the finals without dropping a set (last time it was done by Justine Henin in 2007). Just one year ago Simona was ranked world No.57 and today she’s seed No.4 and plays Roland Gaross finals against Maria Sharapova. In semi-finals Halep won against Petkovic in two sets 6-2, 7-6; her…

    The bet we placed with bet365 on the exact number of corners in the match between FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid didn’t pay off, as there were 12 corners instead of the 11 predicted by us. In the end it did not matter as Atletico Madrid were crowned the La Liga champions, even if the president of the football federation had more important things to do than award the trophy to the winners. Barcelona knew that any other result but a victory was going to cost them the title, that’s why they went out all guns blazing on Atletico. The visitors received a serious blow in the beginning of the…

    Conor McGregor’s grudge match against Diego Brandao was the perfect way to cap off a fantastic event for the Irish at UFC Dublin. “You’ll never beat the Irish”. That was the chant that 9,500 fans in the O2 arena belted out at UFC Dublin. It usually serves as an empty mantra; a cathartic release of national pride and pent-up excitement, but last night it had more weight behind it. It was roared with such conviction that it transcended a meaningless fan chant and became something much powerful; a promise. There was a lot of hype surrounding Irish MMA fans in the build up…

Mandatory Credit: ufc.com In the main event of UFC Fight Night Dublin, Conor McGregor fulfilled his premonition by knocking Diego Brandao out in the first round. McGregor was headhunting from the opening bell, landing a spinning back kick which lead to a Brandao takedown attempt that the Dubliner easily defended. Brandao tried another but McGregor artfully reversed it and ended up on top position against the cage, trying to pass Brandao’s guard. The Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt…

  • Was Lionel Messi Tired?

    Benjamin Morris
    16 Jul 2014 | 3:00 am
    In Argentina’s final match of the World Cup, Lionel Messi — on whom Argentine hopes have rested for over a decade — only touched the ball at a rate of once every two minutes. One of those touches was a great opportunity to win the game near the end of regulation, which he failed to even put on goal. Despite this, and despite a decrease in goals and assists as the tournament progressed (four goals in his first three games, an assist in his fourth, and nary a goal or assist since), he won the World Cup’s Golden Ball award (essentially the tournament MVP). That prompted Diego…
  • Carmelo Anthony’s Contract Could Doom the Knicks to Mediocrity

    Nate Silver
    15 Jul 2014 | 8:04 am
    The New York Knicks have won 55 percent of their games since Carmelo Anthony joined the team in 2011 — a rate that equates to a 45-37 record over a regular season and a first-round exit from the playoffs.Get ready for more of the same. It’s not that Anthony is a bad player. He’s a very good player — perhaps even an underappreciated player, as my Grantland colleague Bill Simmons notes. He’s improved some problematic aspects of his game, like 3-point shooting, since arriving in New York.But Anthony’s new contract — reported to be in the range of $125 million over five…
  • Could the World Cup Champion Beat the Best Club Team in the World?

    11 Jul 2014 | 9:02 am
    Update (July 13, 5:46 p.m.): Germany won the World Cup on Sunday, defeating Argentina 1-0 in extra time.In basketball, it’s a safe bet that the United States men’s national team would defeat even the best NBA teams more often than not. Likewise, it’s hard to imagine any single NHL squad being favored against the Canadian national hockey team, if there were ever an occasion for them to face off. Yet it’s pretty conventional wisdom in soccer circles that the best teams in the Champions League, the world’s top club-level competition, are better than those in the World Cup,…
  • LeBron James Shouldn’t Stay in Miami Or Go to Cleveland

    Nate Silver
    10 Jul 2014 | 10:50 am
    The conventional wisdom is that LeBron James will remain in Miami or return home to Cleveland. Neither would maximize his chances of winning a championship — but Cleveland, at least, is on an upward trajectory.In Miami, James runs the risk of staying too long with a team in decline. The Heat won 54 games last year in a historically soft Eastern Conference and were dismantled by San Antonio in the NBA Finals. As if the Spurs left any doubt, a team with 54-win talent is rarely good enough to win a championship. Since the introduction of the three-point shot in 1979-80,27 just one of 22…

    Last week I wrote “Lionel Messi Is Impossible,” an article that explored how play-by-play data sheds light on the Argentina forward’s skills, style and value (spoiler: he’s good). Many readers asked if I could do a similar analysis comparing Messi with all-time greats, particularly Argentine legend Diego Maradona (who played on the winning 1986 World Cup side) and Brazilian great Pele (who helped his country win the Cup in 1958, 1962 and 1970).Ask and you shall receive.

    Before trade season really got underway, there was another somewhat major deal struck. The Los Angeles Angels traded second baseman Taylor Lindsey (their #1 prospect per BaseballProspectus’s pre-season rankings),1 RHP R.J.

  • New Head Coach Hires: Ken Whisenhunt

    Cale Finta
    19 Jul 2014 | 8:26 am
    Gone are the days when NFL head coaches entered their first season with the license to develop a team over the course of a few years. The firing of Cleveland Browns head coach Rod Chudzinski marked the third consecutive season of a coach being fired after their first year with a team. Nothing is promised by desperate front offices. In 2011, Oakland fired Hue Jackson at the end of his first season after posting the franchise’s best record since 2002. The bar is at an all-time high for new hires. Last season, three coaches (Andy Reid, Mike McCoy, and Chip Kelly) took their teams to the…

    The last time that the city of Buffalo has seen a major sports championship was 1965 when the Bills captured the AFL title, before even the Super Bowl existed. The last time that the city of Cleveland has seen a major sports championship was 1964 when the Browns captured the NFL title, again before even the Super Bowl's time.Both of these cities have experienced their own trials and tribulations in sport. Heartbreak has been an unfortunate constant through the decades. Though a turn in the tides is inevitable for both, Cleveland’s glory suddenly seems much closer to a reality with the…

    Who’s going to buy the Bills? Ever since the passing of Ralph Wilson Jr. in March, this has been the question nagging at the back of our minds. The good news is that—no matter what—the Bills are contractually obligated to be here another six years. Beyond that, the future of the team is uncertain.Within the last month, several potential owners have received non-disclosure agreements from the Bills, along with the team’s financial data. Bids are going to be submitted to Morgan Stanley, which has been tasked with handling the late Mr. Wilson’s estate. The plan is to have it down to…

    Though the USA Men’s National Team is headed home from the World Cup, it is not without a shimmer of hope and a large dose of pride. From the outset the US was put into the “Group of Death” an assignment that by it’s very name gave the team an underdog tag. However, that underdog position proved to be of comfort for the USA.First playing Ghana, the States had much to prove, being previously defeated by their opponent in the last two World Cups. Though the two teams have shared a history, this year’s outcome proved to be different. USA captain Clint Dempsey made sure his team’s…

It was electric like I have never seen it before, especially from a bunch of Yanks.When Landon Donovan lead the American Outlaws on its 2010 run in the World Cup people were paying attention but it was mainly soccer enthusiasts watching. It appears now though that the excitement of the 2010 World Cup set the framework for soccer to grow over the last 4 years.

    Asbel Kiprop stunned by Silas Kiplagat in the deepest 1500m race, ever. 3 National Records, 7 under 3:30.  It was no secret that Asbel Kiprop’s world record attempt would take place this year in Monaco. With a 3:27 race in Monaco 1-year ago, and a sub 1:44 800m run just 2 weeks ago, the world watched in hopes of seeing the first 3:25 1500m. The field, together the greatest group of 1500m athletes ever assembled, had no problem latching on to Kiprop as he chased the untouchable 3:25.99 mark. In race that featured an opening lap of 54 seconds and 800 meters in 1:50 it was clear that we…

    Performance Neutral | 5.3 oz | 0 mm Heel-Toe | $130 Modeled after the Japanese Tabi sandal with a split-toe design, the Topo RR features a low-profile, zero-drop platform and responsive energy return. When training in the RR, you will notice the separated big toe a bit, but the sensation is not detrimental to performance. The ride is balanced, and allows the foot to make full contact with the ground at both slower and faster speeds. While not necessarily a “minimalist” shoe by purist definition, the RR allows for plenty of ground feel on both the road and packed dirt surfaces. Because of…

    Like many runners, from the hobby jogger to the elite, I spend numerous hours a week on tending to various knots and soreness in my legs. I owned various therapy devices, lacrosse balls, softballs, foam rollers, you name it I had it. The foam roller that I previously owned was too soft and at the time I was not looking to spend $70- $80 dollars on one of those fancy shmancy new foam rollers. So I got online and started reading about various other types of massage therapy and decided to purchase the Tiger Tail. Tender “knots” in the muscle can prevent full range of motion, while causing…

With such an impressive opener, there was only one athlete who could challenge Gay, and that was Justin Gatlin (convicted doper), who crossed the line in a near world-leading time of 9.79 This was an impressive return for Gay that begs the question, “Was 1-year a long enough suspension?” Gay returned to competition an entire year early because of his…

    Unfortunately for all the fans of the Kansas City Royals, someone played a terrible joke on them and forgot to tell the Royals that the All-Star Break ended on Friday!  Because of this extended vacation, they have officially fallen out of contention and into 3rd in the Central, and 3.5 out of the Wild-Card, all while dropping under .500 for the season at 48-49. But wait.  We were promised that this would be the year.  Everything Dayton Moore has been feeding us has said that 2014 is the year all the major pieces would fall into place.

The Kansas City Royals have just been swept by the last place Boston Red Sox. “What happened to driving the bus?” That bus has now crashed and caught on fire. The Royals have scored five runs total this series. Four runs on Friday, one run yesterday, and no runs today. It isn’t for lack of getting on base, they do plenty of that. It’s hitting the guys in that seems to trouble the Royals. The Red Sox also struggled in that department today, but they still scored six runs. It was…

In another 13 games, they’ve had no fewer than two less hits than their opponent did. The Royals have lost 47 times. In just 16 of them, they’ve had more than two less hits than their opponent.

At one point in this game, the Royals actually had a lead. I promise. There’s proof and everything. Our boys put a run on the board in the first inning after a double by Omar Infante and a long single by Eric Hosmer. Boston then tied the game in the bottom of he second inning due to an Alcides Escobar throwing error. Kansas City would then score two in the fourth and one in the fifth inning to give James Shields a 4-1 lead. Shields would…

    Kansas City will head into Beantown hopefully feeling relaxed and ready to go. The Royals will need to have another spectacular run down the stretch in order for their postseason dreams to stay alive. Game 1: James Shields (9-5, 3.65 ERA) vs. Clay Bucholz (4-5. 5.42 ERA) Kansas City will look to ace James Shields to open up the second half with a victory. Boston has under performed thus far in the season, but the heart of this Sox lineup has some experience with ‘Big Game’ James. David Ortiz is .316 (18-57) off of Shields lifetime. Billy Butler has the most experience against…

His claims are that he’s unable to live a normal life in his new post-football setting.

    The LA Galaxy faced off against the New England Revolution on Wednesday night in Carson, CA. The game would be a blowout 5-1 victory in favor of the LA Galaxy. LA was able to get three points and jump from 6th place to a tie with Colorado Rapids to 3rd place in the Western Conference. The Galaxy were again without Omar Gonzalez, but also decided to rest Landon Donovan and Robbie Rogers. LA is into a stretch of three games in seven days so it was expected to see new faces in the lineup in order to rest some of their regular starters. The Galaxy began the game in complete control of possession,…

    The All-Star break is an unofficial halfway point of the annual marathon known to many a sports fan as the Major League Baseball season. If your team is in first place, like the Brewers happen to be, you’re still keeping an eye on the sports page, but if your team is performing like the Brewers usually do at this time, you’re starting to concentrate on something more important, like the NFL. After having been inundated with World Cup garbage and incessant sports talk chatter about the current group of NBA nomads, led by none other than LeBron James, in Wisconsin, sports fans find…

    I’m not sure I can take any more of these “honourable defeats”. As Max Boyce (and the rest of the Welsh population like to exclaim) “I was there” when we lost to France at Cardiff 1987 (10-9), Australia in Sydney 2007 (29-23; Australia scored a try after the siren), Australia (again) in Melbourne 2012 (25-23; Australia kicked a penalty after the siren) and now South Africa in Nelspruit 2014 (31-30; South Africa awarded a penalty try with 2 minutes to go). I’m sure there are a couple more, but these are the ones that are forever etched in my brain and deeper…

    After the one way traffic of last week’s Australia v France game, I decided I needed some excitement in my life, so I trekked across to Durban via Singapore, Dubai and Cairo. But after nearly doubling the 6,100 miles to try and get to the Test match, I nearly didn’t make it at all. The short 45 minute cityhop from Johannesburg to Durban was cancelled literally 5 minutes from boarding time. The airport was full of Bokke fans going to the game and it sent the place into a frenzy. There were no other suitable flights in the end. So I pallied up with a few of them and 10 minutes later…

    June is always a funny month for Rugby Internationals. It’s the tail end of an ever expanding, arduous European season and it’s a complete mid-season break for the Southerners. You sometimes have to feel sorry for those SANZAR players that don’t make it into International squads as they go from the super intense Super XVs into what are essentially, backyard club matches. The Europeans start their fixturing in August. Their clubs continue through the November Internationals Series there, so their only time off for the elite players is between late June and the start of August! Rugby…

    The A-League finals have a “Superbowl” feel to them nowadays. The Champions have always been determined by a Grand Final, but in the past, the top two in the league have had second chances in the playoffs. The finals are now a sudden death affair, which doesn’t necessarily lead to great football as teams can sometimes be cagey instead of attacking, and whoever is left standing out of the final two, the highest placed get the right to host the Grand Final (to the league’s discretion of course!). The semi finals not unexpectedly saw 1st v 4th (Brisbane v Melbourne) and…

Amazing – but to those that really know me they would think “no surprise!!!!” Triathlon is not my ideal kind of threesome, but that’s another kettle of fish completely. It is however full of world class athletes and seeing as this is part of the World Series, most of the world’s best are at this event. The deep-seated question is though; are these the best in the world or are they just not…

    All good thing must come to an end. As we bid farewell to World Cup 2014 tonight, two football nations will battle each other to claim the title as the “Best In The World“. Argentina vs Germany is the repeat of 1986 final when Diego Maradona inspired Argentina to their only second World Cup title. Can Lionel Messi do the same for the Albicelestes (sky blue and whites)? Or will Germany have their revenge this time? What say you? Germany Is The Favourite On form and on paper, the Germans are the favourite. Any team that inflicted Brazil with a 7-1 defeat at their own back yard must…

At 4.30 am (Malaysian time), with a couple of minutes left for sahur (here in KK), the ruthless German side had just taken a 5-0 lead with the last four coming in the space of SIX MINUTES, mind you.  There was an hour left to play but every football fan in the world knew that it was game over.  Oh dear, this is probably the most shocking result ever in the history of the World Cup.
