  • Charlotte protesters march for sixth night despite shooting video release

    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. Crowds were smaller on Sunday than earlier in the week, but protesters said they would continue until police, who on Saturday released portions of videos showing Scott's death, published all the footage.

  • Report: Chelsea set to overhaul defense with clear out

    At times during Chelsea’s 3-0 defeat at Arsenal on Saturday, Antonio Conte looked like he was going to cry. The defending was that bad. Chelsea gave up three first half goals, the first in calamitous fashion as Gary Cahill was inexplicably caught on the ball to let Alexis Sanchez in to score, and Conte was seething in his post-match press conference about the level of defending and the fact that Chelsea has now conceded at least twice in each of their last four games. The Daily Mail reports that the Italian manager has seen enough from both Cahill and struggling right back Branislav Ivanovic and he will “phase them out” in the coming weeks at Stamford Bridge.

With Rooney left out of the starting lineup, Juan Mata got to play in his natural No. 10 role for the first time this season.

Cris “Cyborg” Justino has already won two title belts, so the fact she doesn’t have a UFC division to compete in doesn’t faze her much. Justino blistered Lansberg with a powerful right hand and then pummeled her on the ground, forcing referee Mario Yamasaki to stop the bout in the main event of UFC Fight Night in Brasilia, Brazil, at 2:29 of the second.

  • Sadly, Crosby praise still comes at Ovechkin’s expense

    Here’s a homework assignment for you: praise Sidney Crosby‘s incredible work without downgrading Alex Ovechkin. Yes, it’s not easy. ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun presented an interesting column that spotlighted an admittedly “tired narrative” while still ultimately pumping up Crosby at Ovechkin’s expense. LeBrun quoted anonymous executives who, yes, trotted out tired narratives. One executive did the baseball thing in making it Crosby (“five-tool guy”) vs. Ovechkin (“home run hitter”) while another equated it to a full-court player vs. a “half-court” player. It’s all … well, tiresome. Ovechkin may not have had the greatest game of his life on Saturday, but watching that game, was the takeaway really that

    The uncle and trainer of Tyson Fury says the world heavyweight champion is at an "all-time low" and seeking professional help, as the result of what he perceives as a "witch hunt" against him. It was announced earlier this week that Fury's scheduled rematch against Wladimir Klitschko has been postponed for a second time, due to the Briton being "medically unfit" to fight. Fury, who pulled off a major upset by beating Klitschko in Dusseldorf last November, was forced to initially delay the rematch due to an ankle injury.

  • Mets furious rally falls short in loss to Phillies, presented by W.B. Mason

    Sean Gilmartin didn't make it out of the first inning but the Mets nearly completed a historic comeback before ultimately falling short in a 10-8 loss to the Phillies on Saturday night at Citi Field. In case you missed it… Filling in for a sick Noah Syndergaard, Gilmartin (0-1) surrendered a three-run homer to Maikel Franco and after walking the eight-place hitter intentionally, a two-run single to the opposing pitcher. He was charged with five runs on four hits and three walks in two-thirds of an inning. Despite striking out seven in 3 1/3 innings, Rafael Montero allowed five runs in relief of Gilmartin to put the Mets in a 10-0 hole. New York rallied for eight unanswered runs, six coming in

  • Brian Kelly calls out, lashes out at Irish players lacking ‘fire and grit’

    If you thought the Notre Dame coaching staff, specifically the defensive side of the ball, would be publicly held accountable by the head coach, you’d be dead wrong. Following a 38-35 home loss to Duke that featured a blown 14-0 lead and fourth-quarter defensive shrinking, Brian Kelly decided instead to lash out against those players listed as first-teamers on his depth chart.  Most notably, starting quarterback DeShone Kizer was singled out after a performance that included 381 yards passing and 60 yards rushing was labeled by Kelly as “below standard” and “not acceptable” thanks to a pair of turnovers. Aside from the longsnapper, though, Kizer wasn’t alone in feeling his head coach’s postgame
