  • 49ers QB Protests National Anthem Over Treatment of Minorities

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the national anthem during a preseason game Friday out of protest against America's treatment of "black people and people of color." Kaepernick told NFL media he made his own decision to protest the playing of the anthem during the game against the Green Bay Packers, saying he felt an obligation to stand with "people that are oppressed." "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," he said. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting

  • Kobe Bryant on how teams should see Warriors: “‘OK, lace ’em up. Let’s go.”

    For two decades, Kobe Bryant saw everyone and everything as an obstacle to overcome: The Pacers, Sixers, Nets, Magic, Celtics, Tim Duncan, Gregg Popovich, Smush Parker, a torn Achilles. It didn’t matter. Kobe’s work ethic and drive had him rising above it all. His focus hasn’t changed now. Kobe was on the Jim Rome show, and the topic of the new-look Warriors with Kevin Durant came up, along with the “woe is me” attitude of some players (and plenty of owners and GMs). “I would have thought less about myself if I looked at that move and said, ‘That’s unfair,'” he said. “If you’re a real competitor, you look at that and say, ‘OK, lace ’em up.

  • USADA violation cancels tonight’s UFC bout, opponent responds

    Although the weigh-ins have successfully concluded, this weekend's UFC on FOX 21 card has suddenly become a bout short. The UFC has announced that a middleweight bout between has been removed from the line up after USADA has flagged Adam Hunter for an out-of-competition drug test from August 11. “Because Hunter was scheduled to compete against Ryan Janes this coming Saturday, August 27 in Vancouver, British Columbia, there is insufficient time for a full review before the scheduled bout and therefore the fight has been removed from the fight card,” the UFC statement read. Janes, who already weighed in at 185 lbs, was obviously upset about not being able to make his UFC debut. “F—k that cheat,”

  • Open the files, abused ex-gymnast tells USA Gymnastics

    INDIANAPOLIS — She still can’t utter the word “abuse,” but Kelly Cutright decided this week was time to speak out about the anguish she suffered at the hands of her gymnastics coach. The South Carolina woman’s former coach, William McCabe, began abusing her in 1999, according to court records. That was the year after USA Gymnastics, the sport’s national governing body, was warned that McCabe might be a sexual predator. Yet not until she read an Indianapolis Star investigation two weeks ago did Cutright find out that the organization had dismissed those allegations against McCabe as “hearsay” and filed them in a drawer in its headquarters here.

  • Cleveland trades Barkevious Mingo to New England

    As a player who was the sixth overall pick in his draft, Barkevious Mingo hasn’t lived up to the expectations that come with being such a lofty selection. If it wasn’t obvious that the Cleveland Browns weren’t happy with Mingo when they declined to pick up the fifth-year option on his rookie deal, on Thursday we got crystal-clear proof: the Browns traded him to the New England Patriots. Cleveland Plain-Dealer beat writer Mary Kay Cabot reported that the Patriots gave the Browns a 2017 fifth-round pick for Mingo.

  • Jordan Spieth ‘got really screwed’ then caddie saved him

    Jordan Spieth had been here before: in this very position, at the first FedEx Cup playoff event, last year’s Barclays, about to flame out and fail to make it to the weekend. His second round at Bethpage Black had barely begun and it could have been over. Spieth double-bogeyed his first hole of the day, No. 10, to tumble to 2-over par — right on the cut line. He looked agitated. It looked as if it was going to be a long day leading to a second consecutive missed cut at the Barclays. This is when his caddie Michael Greller stepped in to make sure history did not repeat itself. Spieth had shot an even-par 71 in Thursday’s opening round and, after the double to open Friday’s round, as he walked to

  • Sporting News Predicts a USC upset over Alabama

    The last few remaining moments of the off season are filled with bold predictions. Sporting News has joined in on the bold predictions calling for the USC Trojans to upset the Alabama Crimson Tide. Most of the experts are calling for Alabama to win. Vegas has the Tide as roughly 10 point favorites over the Trojans. This article, however, argues that Lane Kiffin’s ultra-conservative and predictable play calling with a new quarterback will ultimately be Alabama’s downfall. Specifically, Kiffin’s over reliance on bubble screens may very well be the difference maker in this one. “Unless Kiffin deviates from his predictable and safe playcalling for his new quarterback, especially in that quarterback's

  • Yankees 14, Orioles 4: The offense breaks out behind Gary Sanchez, Cessa

    On paper, this series figured to feature some real nail-biters. Instead the Yankees made the opener a laugher. This game had a little bit of everything, too. High-octane offense? Check. Quality pitching? You bet. Gary Sanchez continuing his historic run? Naturally. The Yankees topped the Orioles by a score of 14 -4. For most of the season, the Yankees have had a nasty habit of letting bad pitchers beat them. Struggling starters such as Jorge De La Rosa and Jhoulys Chacin stifled the lineup. Orioles right-hander Yovani Gallardo, however, did not have such luck. He entered Friday night’s start with a 5.08 ERA and it only went up from there. Gallardo struggled right out of the gate.

  • Hamilton penalty up to 55 places after more engine changes

    SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium (AP) -- Lewis Hamilton's grid penalty for the Belgian Grand Prix has increased to a whopping 55 places after Mercedes made further engine changes on Saturday. Given this, Mercedes took the opportunity to make multiple power unit changes - meaning a further and meaningless 25-place drop in a race of 22 cars - with a view to keeping Hamilton's engine in good shape for the rest of the season. Grid penalties apply only to the race weekend itself and do not carry over into the next race, meaning that Hamilton's engine should be in top condition at the Italian GP in Monza next weekend and beyond that, providing he does not encounter further mechanical problems.

He had a few drops- by both the Patriots and Panthers- but three of his drives led to scoring opportunities. You can’t ask for more. Loser: DT Terrance Knighton. While Alan Branch didn’t play, Knighton still didn’t see the field. He was passed by Vincent Valentine and Markus Kuhn and undrafted rookie Woodrow Hamilton.

    Warlords of Draenor, World of Warcraft’s fifth expansion pack, was met with buzz and approval of fans and critics alike when it released in November 2014. I was one of those critics, laying effusive praise (and an extremely high score to match) at the expansion’s feet in my review. It wasn’t just player and critical feedback, either. That love for the expansion showed in subscriber numbers, which crested over 10 million once more for the first time in years. But then something happened. I stopped playing three or four months after Warlords of Draenor released. And I was far from alone. In the summer of 2015, World of Warcraft’s subscriber numbers hit a nine-year low, dropping from over 10 million

But Deadspin’s LSU preview blew so far past that standard that it actually caused me to pause and consider its truly stunning intellectual dishonesty.
