  • Sam Allardyce’s England future hangs in the balance

    England manager Sam Allardyce has not only been publicly humiliated but now he could lose his job. An undercover investigation from the Daily Telegraph, released on Monday, showed Allardyce meeting with fictitious businessman and discussing how to get around rules of third-party ownership (TPO) of players and then negotiating a fee of over $518,000 for becoming an ambassador for what he believed to be a company set up in the Far East. After just one game and two months in charge of England, it could all be over for “Big Sam” as Three Lions boss. The FA is reportedly already close to firing him as they don’t want their image and integrity questioned across the globe. Allardyce, 61, took charge

    A couple hundred demonstrators chanted and marched through Charlotte on Sunday, as protests persisted after the release of two videos showing the fatal shooting of a black man by police officers in North Carolina's largest city. Angry protesters have filled the streets of Charlotte every day since the Tuesday killing of Keith Scott, 43, whom police said was armed when officers shot him.

It’s what Schumacher does for fun – and profit, for that matter – that we’re addressing here: If you watched the NHRA drag racing coverage from Gateway Motorsports Park just east of St. Louis this past weekend, the man in the bright red shirt, standing there at the starting line, was downright ever-present during the Top Fuel and Funny Car eliminations. There was Don Schumacher standing there for the Top Fuel final between his son, Tony Schumacher, who has eight Top Fuel season championships, and his challenger, Shawn Langdon.

  • Marlins 2B Dee Gordon:

    Matthew Cerrone | Snapchat | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | About Me Bartolo Colon allowed seven runs Monday night as the Marlins beat the Mets, 7-3, during Miami's first game since the death of their 24-year-old ace Jose Fernandez. The Mets entered the game needing to need as many of the six games left in the season as they fight to outlast the Giants and Cardinals for the NL Wild Card. And yet, given what the Marlins experienced during the last 48 hours, I can easily accept the Mets losing in Miami last night. It felt like the right thing to do... The night was full of emotions, and both sides did an admirable job fighting through... "He respected the game. That's why he played it like he

  • The Cardinals were jeered at home last night

    The Cardinals got shellacked 15-2 by the Reds, one of baseball’s worst teams, last night. In so doing they fell a half game behind the Giants for the second Wild Card. Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post Dispatch wrote about last night’s game. What struck him was the reaction from the crowd at Busch Stadium: And the fans, in a rare moment of pique, let the Cardinals hear about it, first booing and then erupting in a Bronx cheer when the final out of a seven-run fourth was recorded. They booed a little more later on and then many of them beat the traffic, with some of them at least leaving with a Grateful Dead T-shirt, a special theme night promotion . . . The paid crowd to witness the carnage was
