  • Bill Belichick Ripping Into Tom Brady ‘Set The Tone’ For Chad Johnson With Patriots

    A lot of successful coaches ensure no player gets away with any special treatment. If the star player is criticized in front of the team, everyone notices and doesn’t fool around. Famous Boston Celtics head coach Red Auerbach did this, too. He would rip legendary center Bill Russell on purpose during practice to make a point that everyone had to be held accountable. It appears New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick isn’t afraid to lay into his own star players, as former Patriot wide receiver Chad Johnson explained during an appearance on FOX Sports 1 program “Undisputed” earlier this week. “First day, team meeting. Everyone’s coming in and Belichick puts on – first day, no greeting –

  • Unhappy 49ers fan edits Trent Baalke's Wikipedia page

    The San Francisco 49ers might be the worst team in the NFL. Yes, the Cleveland Browns are winless, but taking a glance at the 49ers roster, there’s not a lot there. As The Mercury-News discovered on Monday, someone did some … creative editing to Baalke’s Wikipedia page.

  • Why the Cubs benched their $184M outfielder for World Series Game 1

    When the Chicago Cubs announced their lineup for Game 1 of the World Series, one big, expensive name was missing: Jason Heyward, the outfielder whom they signed to a $184 million, eight-year contract this past offseason. Instead, Joe Maddon put journeyman Chris Coghlan in right field. Two things: Yes, Maddon calls Jason Heyward “Jeyward” and Maddon said things could easily be different in Game 2, which makes sense considering how much he tinkers with the Cubs’ lineup.

  • Tigers not likely to deal Kinsler

    While Detroit Tigers GM Al Avila recently told local reporters he will be looking to cut payroll and shake up his roster before next season, Detroit Free Press reporter Anthony Fenech believes the Tigers have no interest in trading 2B Ian Kinsler and RHP Justin Verlander. "We want to get younger," Avila said two weeks ago. "We want to get leaner. We want to run the organization without having to go over our means." Kinsler, 34, who hit .288 with 28 home runs and 83 RBIs this season, will earn just $21 million over the next two years and be eligible for free agency after the 2018 season.

  • Greatest Wrestler Tournament: The Field of 64

    After an exhaustive period of nominating wrestlers, and then rec'ing each one you felt was deserving, the next Cageside Seats Pro Wrestling Tournament has its Field of 64. And the best part is it was all decided by you. That means you get to bicker back and forth with each other (and we expect lots of that) regarding the wrestlers who made it in and those who were left out. There's no questioning some deserving wrestlers were not included in the final field and, really, more than a few were left off the list. There's also plenty of debate to be had about a couple names that did make it. Just remember to have a good time with it. That's what we're going to do! Without further ado, here is the

  • Giants finally release Josh Brown, John Mara cites team's 'misguided' actions

    Brown was left home from the Giants’ game against the Los Angeles Rams in London in Week 7 and was placed on the commissioner’s exempt list by the NFL, granting the team a roster spot to replace him. Giants co-owner John Mara explained (via ESPN) why the team released Brown now and not when the allegations of abuse first surfaced, or after the shocking documents in which Brown admitted he abused his wife were released by the King County (Wash.) Sheriff’s Office.

  • Spurs thrash Warriors on Durant's NBA opening night

    Kawhi Leonard inspired the San Antonio Spurs with 35 points as the Golden State Warriors' much-hyped "super team" crashed to a season-opening 129-100 thrashing on Tuesday. A packed house at Oakland's Oracle Arena had arrived hoping to see new signee Kevin Durant take his place amongst the most potent offense in the NBA. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson both failed to hit the heights of their best form of last year, when they helped the Warriors to a historic NBA record of 73 wins against only nine losses.

  • J.T. Barrett was letdown by the OSU coaching staff

    The improbable and unthinkable happened in Happy Valley last Saturday night and it happened for a various amount of reasons — all of which are key ingredients to pulling off a major upset: Scoring on special teams: Game-winning blocked field goal returned for a touchdown and a blocked punt, leading to points. Getting to the quarterback: We’ll get to this. Hitting on big plays: Only four Penn State receivers caught passes, but they each had a long reception of over 20 yards. Saquon Barkley was held for under 100-yards on the ground, but he had a long rush of 37-yards. If we were to go back through Ohio State’s losses under Urban Meyer, the offense has been the issue in just about all of them —

  • Why the Rangers loss on Tuesday might have been bigger than that of the Chicago Cubs

    Rangers officials, including Levine, did not comment on the report. The Rangers have had some upheaval in the executive ranks over the last couple of years, but the belief here is this one will hurt more than the resignation of Nolan Ryan (2013) and the departure of A.J. Preller (2014). Each had their own strengths. Levine, who has spent a decade as Daniels' top assistant, has developed a well-rounded blend of skills that will serve him well. In baseball, ownership seems to gravitate towards one of two schools in hiring a GM: They either favor "scouting," which means they want a guy who played the game, spits tobacco and can talk in colorful jargon or they aim for "analytics" and a guy with a

  • Video: World Series Expected to Be Most Expensive to Attend

    And the series is shaping up to be the most expensive to attend in the history of Major League Baseball Cleveland. Hasn't been a series in nineteen years and a ticket there tonight starts at more than 700 dollar. It's actually surprising that it's that love let's not that bad. But the cubs haven't been invited to the dance in 71 years so understandably prices for game three in Chicago start at. 19100. Dollars all of and average about four times as much as ones in Cleveland and those prices are likely to rise even more. Before Friday's first game in Chicago and not even counting how much they have to spend and how much it invested in getting back and forth to the game which is going to be its

  • 3-round mock draft sends Cowboys much needed pass rush help, WR & CB

    Is it too early to have an eye on the 2017 draft? Not if you’ve been focused on the Cowboys lackluster pass rush in 2016 it isn’t. It’s unlikely anything will happen between now and the trade deadline that will fix Dallas’ issues getting to the quarterback, and with their hesitance to enter the free agency fray the last few years, any help for the edge rush will likely come via the draft. DraftWire has released a new three-round mock draft and it starts off with Dallas selecting Dawuane Smoot out of the University of Illinois. Character issues have plagued the Cowboys’ attempts to improve their pass rush, so they’re still looking for an upgrade there. Smoot racked up 15 tackles for loss and eight

  • Crosby returns, and so does Penguins’ balanced attack in win

    With Sidney Crosby back in the lineup for the first time this season on Tuesday night the Pittsburgh Penguins roster is starting to resemble the one that lifted the Stanley Cup four months ago. About half way through their 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers, they finally started to look like that team on the ice, too. The Panthers were completely shutting the game down and had just put on a penalty killing clinic where they played a 40-second game of keep-away, sparking a chorus of boos from the home crowd. It was at that point that Crosby found himself wide open in the middle of the ice to accept a pass from Evgeni Malkin and rip it past Panthers goalie Jamies Reimer for his first goal of the year.

  • Knicks agree improving defense should be their focus

    Following last night's 117-88 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Knicks head coach Jeff Hornacek admitted that his team felt unsettled, especially on defense, where they'll need to be more aggressive. Hornacek's players seemingly agreed, later saying the following to reporters after the game... Carmelo Anthony: "Even though it was the first game, we still have some work to do. I believe our focus should be on defense now, rather than offense." Derrick Rose: "Communication is huge. ... We have a lot of room to improve." Kristaps Porizingis: "We have a lot of room to grow, as a team. It's going to be a process for us to find that connection offensively. But, one thing we can do right away is get

    VALENCIA, Spain (AP) Antoine Griezmann has won the best player award in the Spanish league for last season. The Atletico Madrid forward was announced as the winner in a ceremony organized by La Liga in Valencia on Monday. The Frenchman was not at the ceremony. Atletico also had Diego Simeone win the best coach award, Diego Godin earn the best defender award, and Jan Oblak clinch best goalkeeper.
