  • In Dak Prescott hype, Tony Romo perception oversimplified, doesn't consider his health

    Kevin Sherrington, sports columnist for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered your questions in a live chat recently. Here are some highlights: Question: When it comes time to pick between Prescott and Romo at QB do you think Jason Garrett has any say in the matter? Or will the whole decision come down to Jerry Jones? Sherrington: I think that's all Garrett's call, and he'll go with Romo. I don't even think that's a question. Nor should it be. Dak has played extremely well, better than anyone could have predicted. But the problem at the QB situation hasn't been Romo's play. It's been his health. When healthy, he's been extremely good. A top five, top 10 QB. Is Dak one of those

  • Who are the eight Premier League managers implicated?

    The Daily Telegraph carried out an elaborate piece of investigative journalism that resulted in the stepping down of England manager Sam Allardyce after just one game in charge, and the paper promises there will be more. While Allardyce will walk away into the sunset bitterly complaining of entrapment, it appears that the sting operation carried out could reveal eight current and former Premier League managers, as well as two Championship managers, who have also apparently taken ‘bungs’ - per the Cambridge dictionary: “a payment made to someone to persuade them to do something, usually something dishonest” - for pushing through player transfers. An assistant manager at a leading club who was filmed accepting a £5,000 cash payment from undercover reporters posing as representatives of a Far Eastern firm that wanted to invest in players. Undercover journalists posing as a Far East firm looking to invest in the Premier League secretly filmed conversations with three agents who spilled the beans on the practices of various clubs and managers.
