  • WATCH: John Daly once drank five beers at the turn during a PGA Tour round

    John Daly's propensity for drinking beer and smoking cigarettes is as well known as his ability to hit the ball 300-plus yards off the tee. Daly is the subject of the upcoming ESPN 30 for 30 documentary "Hit it Hard," which will give an in depth profile of his exploits on and off the course. In a clip from the film, Daly was asked about drinking during a tournament, which he denies ever doing ... except for one time at the L.A. Open. "I never had any alcohol on the golf course that I remember, except for one time, and that was the L.A. Open," says Daly. "It was so slow and I played the back nine first. I think I'm 2 or 3 over. I went in the locker room and downed like five beers, and I think

  • A Redskins Coach Exposed His Wiener To Fans When He Whipped It Out To Pee On The Sideline

    One Redskins coach, however, decided to go full Nick Novak and pee on the sideline during Washington’s game on Sunday against Detroit. Ben Kotwica, Washington’s special teams coordinator, grabbed a cup, walked away from the action, and went to the bathroom.

  • Here's why Rams are so stubborn about keeping No. 1 pick Jared Goff on bench

    Jeff Fisher knew the question before he stepped to the podium on Sunday. Just as he knew it last week, last month – and every last second since the Los Angeles Rams selected Jared Goff No. 1 overall in the NFL draft. For months Fisher has endured it, like a parent tolerating a child in the backseat of the car.

  • Klay Thompson, Steve Kerr slam Golden State official who called Warriors ‘[cowards]’

    Marreese Speights bluntly assessed Draymond Green, but at least Speights put his name behind his words (at least until implying he was misquoted, to which the writer countered by claiming he had audio). Someone else in the fantastic profile of Green by Ethan Sherwood Strauss of ESPN never attached his name. Strauss: multiple Warriors staffers share the opinion that Green is their most important player. Nobody replicates his set of contributions. As one team official puts it: “The guys might be frustrated by his antics, but they had an opportunity to prove themselves without him in Game 5 and they played like a bunch of [cowards].” Multiple Warriors objected. Klay Thompson, via Monte Poole of

  • Four bold moves Bills should make at NFL trade deadline

    The NFL trade deadline is on Nov. 1 and with the Buffalo Bills currently holding a 4-3 record on the 2016 season, it’s quite possible that general manager Doug Whaley could be looking to strike a deal. Since being promoted to general manager shortly after the 2013 NFL draft, Whaley hasn’t been hesitant to work the phones and make trades. In just over three years, Whaley has made 11 trades that allowed the team to acquire players like outside linebacker Jerry Hughes and running back LeSean McCoy, while not being shy to send away draft picks if he feels that he can improve the team. With that said, here are some bold trades that Whaley should make with the NFL trade deadline looming. Whaley traded

  • What does the future hold for Nationals’ Ben Revere after disappointing season in D.C.?

    When it came down the last few roster decisions before the start of the NLDS, the Washington Nationals decided to leave Ben Revere off the 25-Man roster. Revere, 28, struggled offensively throughout his first season in the nation’s capital, after injuring himself on the first day of the regular season. He finished the season with a .217/.260/.300 line over in 103 games and 375 plate appearances, over which he was worth -1.2 fWAR, down from a .306/.342/.377 line between Toronto and Philadelphia in 2015, and 2.2 and 1.9 fWAR campaigns in the previous two seasons (2015-16). Both Nationals’ skipper Dusty Baker and Washington’s GM Mike Rizzo talked about the decision to go with Michael Taylor over

  • Report: Tom Herman to Texas is ‘all but official’

    Houston suffered a stunning loss on Saturday that sent the team tumbling out of the top 25, but that apparently has had no effect on a major program being interested in its head coach. In fact, a report on Monday claimed Tom Herman becoming the next head coach at Texas is essentially a done deal. Houston had an outside chance at making the BCS Playoff if the team ran the table, but a loss to Navy earlier this month all but eliminated those hopes. Then on Saturday, the Cougars were dominated by SMU, 38-16. In his first season as the head coach at Houston last year, Herman led the Cougars to a 13-1 record, which was a significant improvement over the team’s 8-5 record the season before. The former

  • Gilbert Arenas -- Here's My $111 Million NBA Contract ... Take a Look! (DOCUMENT)

    1 10/25/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF Ever wonder what an $111 million NBA contract looks like? Well, here you go ... courtesy of Gilbert Arenas. The ex-NBA star filed the complete 2008 contract he signed with the Washington Wizards in his family law case ... a contract which was supposed to pay $111 mil over 6 years. As Arenas put it, "Amnesty kicked in" -- and the payouts were stretched over 8 years instead. His final installment will hit his bank account on Oct. 31st. Of course, Arenas -- who made more than $160 MIL during his career -- now says with no more NBA money coming in, he can't afford to keep his kids in private school. The contract spells out exactly how much Gilbert got paid every

  • Dodgers may explore trading 3 injury-risk arms — with a Yankees fit?

    The Dodgers built rotation depth this year because they realized how fragile their starters were, and indeed, they used 15 in all. Three starters they had invested in long-term — Scott Kazmir, Brandon McCarthy and Hyun-jin Ryu — were unavailable in the postseason. McCarthy (two years at $20 million) had Tommy John surgery last year and went just 2-3 with a 4.95 ERA when he returned in July this season. There was talk he struggled with the yips, but both Zaidi and president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said the issues were mechanical and McCarthy conquered those.

  • University of Alabama students are duking it out on Twitter about sitting during the national anthem

    Black students nationwide have been inspired by and joined the protest started by Colin Kaepernick of the National Football League in which people decline to stand during the national anthem before athletic contests. The protests continue to spread, and they are facing a backlash at some campuses. Some of the backlash consists of people making a case for standing for the anthem. But some of the backlash -- especially on social media -- is coming in the form of ugly comments directed against black students. At a football game at the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa on Saturday, a few dozen black students sat together and remained seated for the national anthem. (The football team at Alabama

  • Chicago Cubs Counter Trademark Filings During World Series

    The Chicago Cubs have made it to the World Series for the first time since 1945 and the franchise is doing everything in its power to completely commercially exploit the opportunity. In September, the Cubs sued known vendors who were selling unlicensed goods. Now, the Cubs are filing actions through the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) to prevent third parties from registering trademarks that may be likely to be confused with the marks popularized by the baseball team. On October 17, one day after losing Game 2 of the National League Championship Series to the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Cubs filed two TTAB oppositions against trademark applications pending with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Report: Yi Jianlian has asked for release, will be waived by Lakers

    On paper, Chinese center Yi Jianlian made a lot of sense for the Lakers, especially in Luke Walton’s system — he was the only floor spacing big on the roster. Watching Yi at the Olympics, it was easy to imagine it working out for him in the NBA this time around. In practice, he was struggling to find a consistent role with the team. He had averaged less than 11 minutes a game in the preseason, shooting 35 percent overall and 16.7 percent from three. His defense wasn’t good, and he remains a player who doesn’t exactly have a high motor. With Julius Randle, Larry Nance, Timofey Mozgov, and Tarik Black, Yi wasn’t finding a consistent niche. So he has asked out of his contract and the Lakers are

  • Carlos Alberto: Brazil soccer great dies at 72

    Then 25, Alberto became the youngest-ever World Cup-winning captain having already skippered Santos, his club at the time. He had been appointed two years before the tournament and in an interview with FIFA recalled: "I was elevated to the captaincy of a team regarded at the time as the best in Brazil, and by many as the best in the world. "It included world champions like Pele, Coutinho, Pepe, Gilmar and Mauro. "There's no doubt that being the Santos skipper led to me getting the Selecao armband. I'm very proud still to be the youngest captain of a World Cup-winning team." Alberto won 53 caps for Brazil, scoring eight goals, but it is for his dazzling 1970 performance that he is best remembered

  • Kuznetsova cuts her own hair to beat Radwanska

    Svetlana Kuznetsova hacked off her own hair with a pair of scissors and burst into tears before saving a match point and beating the defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska 7-5 1-6 7-5 at the WTA Finals on Monday. Despite appearing on the verge of exhaustion and close to breaking down, Kuznetsova somehow summoned up the energy to win her opening round-robin match in dramatic fashion, less than 48 hours after she qualified for the prestigious end-of-season championship.

  • Eagles reportedly discussing trade for Torrey Smith; maybe Alshon Jeffery?

    The NFL’s trade deadline is next Tuesday, November 1, at 4:00 PM ET. It looks like Howie Roseman is racing against the clock to make one more deal before it strikes. [UPDATE: 10:21 PM ET] -- Here’s something else to keep an eye on! Smith, 27, has spent the last year-plus toiling in San Francisco after four very productive years with Baltimore. The best season of his career came in 2013, when Smith caught 65 passes for 1,128 yards and four touchdowns. In seven games this season as a part of Chip Kelly’s anemic offense out west, he has 13 catches for 199 yards and two touchdowns. According to PFT, the deal is not “currently imminent,” which of course means this report is noteworthy but not a done

  • Reports: Celtics waive R.J. Hunter, keep James Young

    The Celtics’ final regular-season roster spot came down to a couple recent first-round picks who had guaranteed salaries on their rookie-scale deals: James Young (No. 17 pick in 2014) R.J. Hunter (No. 28 pick in 2015) Young won. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports: Jeff Goodman of ESPN: Someone should claim Hunter on waivers. I rated him a mid-first-rounder just last year, and limited playing time in his rookie season only somewhat dissuades me. He’s no guarantee to pan out out in the NBA, but I like his odds better than many currently on other rosters. Just 23 – it’s his birthday – Hunter still has time to develop. I’m skeptical anyone will claim him, given that Boston couldn’t trade him for

  • Why the Lions traded away Kyle Van Noy for almost nothing

    The Detroit Lions linebacker play has been atrocious over seven weeks of football, and despite trying to plug and play several different players at the position, it hasn’t improved. So why in the world would the team trade away one of its starters for basically nothing? Is Bob Quinn colluding with his former team? Has he just gone mad? Is he on a mission to get rid of every Martin Mayhew pick? The answer, of course, to all of these is no. The Lions traded away Kyle Van Noy and a seventh round pick for just a sixth round pick in return. And while that doesn’t seem like a very good return for a former second-round pick—and it isn’t—given how Van Noy is playing and how the Lions compensated the

  • What should be the biggest priority for the Royals this winter?

    The Royals enter a crucial off-season where they must try to capitalize on one more season with their core group that won two pennants and a championship. It is still unclear whether the team will cut payroll from last year's franchise-record $144 million payroll, or whether they will increase payroll to make on more run. Either way, the team does not have unlimited resources and will have to prioritize the areas they want to address. There are some positions that are set. Salvador Perez and Eric Hosmer are cornerstones in the lineup. Alcides Escobar has been awful offensively, but the club likes his defense enough to keep him around. Mike Moustakas is expected to return at third base after a

  • Urijah Faber Announces Retirement

    Urijah Faber has decided that enough is enough. It’s time for him to retire from active mixed martial arts competition and move on. And he’s decided to do it in his hometown. Faber will step into the Octagon for the final time opposite Brad Pickett at UFC on FOX 22 on Dec. 17 in Sacramento, Calif. The fight was announced last week, but Faber broke the news of his retirement on The MMA Hour on Monday. “I’m super excited to fight in (Sacramento),” Faber said. “Those are all my people out there. I built our team, Team Alpha Male (there), it’s like an extended family to me, and I was raised in the greatest Sacramento area all the way through college. It’s going to be a really cool event. “I’ve been

  • Q&A: John Madden on Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning

    Madden: They don't have an alternative. I mean, that's the problem. They can't continue to play in that stadium. They need a new stadium. And they can't get one put together in Oakland. The L.A. thing didn't work out, which, I'm kind of glad about. I don't think they belonged in L.A. But [Stan] Kroenke got that and, even though there was a chance they may go in with him, I don't think that'll happen. So then, Las Vegas stepped up and offered that they would build a stadium. So that's where they had to go.If it were a decision - Do you want to play in Oakland or do you want to play in Las Vegas - we would all say "we want you to play in Oakland." And Mark Davis, who's making the decision, would
  • E-mail chain about Florida game another embarrassment for LSU

    An e-mail chain that circulated within the LSU athletic department following Florida’s decision to postpone their Oct. 8 game due to Hurricane Matthew reveals that the dysfunction between the two parties and the Southeastern Conference was every bit as real as suspected. LSU officials, in fact, seemed to believe that Florida was using the storm to duck the game and enhance its chances at winning the SEC East, a theory that became popular in the ensuing days on social media and LSU fan sites. “This is a joke,” LSU athletics director Joe Alleva wrote to communications director Michael Bonnette in response to the SEC’s announcement that Georgia and South Carolina, another game affected by the hurricane, had been postponed until that Sunday.

  • Leafs place ex-Sharks LW on waivers, claim ex-Sharks RW

    With just four periods left to go on their road trip, the Sharks were in pretty optimal shape. They had already won three of their first four games, and were sitting in the visiting dressing room in Pittsburgh in the second intermission with a 2-0 lead after their best period of the young season. That’s when it came undone.  The Penguins reeled off three straight third period goals to shock San Jose on Thursday night, and the Sharks concluded their trip by getting spanked by the Red Wings in a game that they were never really in on Saturday. Still, it’s nothing to get alarmed about, and it was all too predictable that the Sharks might fade towards the end of the journey. This year’s training
