  • Court Upholds Olympic Ban on Russian Track and Field Athletes

    In an intensely watched decision, sport's highest appeals court has ruled against Russian track and field athletes seeking to overturn a ban barring them from this summer’s Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. The ruling is a major setback for Russia as it awaits a decision from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on whether to ban all Russian athletes from the games over alleged state-run doping. This court decision potentially removes a major legal obstacle to the complete ban.

  • Report: White Sox recently turned down a “king’s ransom” for Chris Sale

    Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports hears from a source that the White Sox turned down a “king’s ransom” for starter Chris Sale within the last 48 hours. He went on to explain that the White Sox aren’t going into the August 1 non-waiver trade deadline with the intent to sell, but added that the organization sounds “open-minded.” It’s easy to understand why the White Sox would want to hold onto Sale. He’s a once-in-a-generation pitcher, but he’s also relatively affordable for the next three seasons: $12 million in 2017, $12.5 million if the club picks up his option, and $13.5 million if the club picks up his option. Sale is currently the major league leader in wins with 14 while carrying a 3.18 ERA and

The chances of Solo and her American teammates achieving the former are pretty favorable, considering the U.S. won the Women’s World Cup last year and head coach Jill Ellis has been proactive in keeping the squad energized by incorporating exciting, young talent like Mallory Pugh. Because the goalkeeper tweeted a picture on Thursday night showing off quite the arsenal of insect repellent to keep any Zika-carrying mosquitoes away.

  • Drake forced Kentucky into reporting another violation

Here’s what happened: a player, whose name was redacted in the report, was spotted by Drake or one of his entourage and was invited backstage at a concert. Drake did not provide the tickets and was not in touch with the player prior to the start of the show, but it is a violation nonetheless.

  • Which NHL goal scorers were luckiest this season? (Trending Topics)

    A shot from Alex Ovechkin from x location in a high-danger area has a greater chance of going in than one from Zac Rinaldo or even Lee Stempniak. With this in mind, we can reasonably extrapolate that guys like Patrick Kane, who led the league in points and finished second in goals only behind Ovechkin are generally going to appear to be more “lucky” than the average NHLer when their stats are viewed without context. What that basically means is that Kane had a shooting percentage of 16 percent in all situations last year, nearly doubling the NHL average of 8.5 percent.

  • Could the Yankees release Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira?

    A judge handed minor leaguers looking to hold Major League Baseball liable for underpaying and exploiting them a huge setback today, ruling that the case cannot go forward as a class action. The ruling saps the minor leaguers of their leverage, as Major League Baseball would likely be able to fend off individual cases which, by themselves, might only amount to several thousand dollars per claim. The background: in 2014, former Miami Marlins player Aaron Senne sued Major League Baseball, Bud Selig, and three major league clubs claiming that minor leaguers are underpaid and exploited in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Either you like Subban or you prefer Weber. The analytics community believes Subban is the better player, while many “old school” hockey minds believe Shea Weber’s ferociousness and goal total sets him apart. But how do current NHLers feel? We know that Jonathan Toews is glad that Weber’s going to the Eastern Conference and it sounds like another young star feels the same way.
