  • Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh says replay decision was the ‘worst call he’s ever seen’

    Jim Harbaugh has been known for using a bit of hyperbole from time to time but it sounds as though he was really, really, really upset at a call in the final few minutes of No. 2 Michigan’s 41-8 win over Illinois on Saturday. Wolverines quarterback John O’Korn had completed a third-and-nine pass to Drake Harris that officials had marked short of the first down by nearly two yards. Harbaugh quickly challenged the spot but Big Ten replay officials upheld the call to force a fourth down decision that was a little longer than it should have been according to the coach. “I’ve never seen a worse call in the game of football,” Harbaugh said at his Monday press conference. “My understanding of the rules

  • Gilbert Arenas -- Here's My $111 Million NBA Contract ... Take a Look! (DOCUMENT)

    1 10/25/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF Ever wonder what an $111 million NBA contract looks like? Well, here you go ... courtesy of Gilbert Arenas. The ex-NBA star filed the complete 2008 contract he signed with the Washington Wizards in his family law case ... a contract which was supposed to pay $111 mil over 6 years. As Arenas put it, "Amnesty kicked in" -- and the payouts were stretched over 8 years instead. His final installment will hit his bank account on Oct. 31st. Of course, Arenas -- who made more than $160 MIL during his career -- now says with no more NBA money coming in, he can't afford to keep his kids in private school. The contract spells out exactly how much Gilbert got paid every

  • Q&A: John Madden on Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning

    Madden: They don't have an alternative. I mean, that's the problem. They can't continue to play in that stadium. They need a new stadium. And they can't get one put together in Oakland. The L.A. thing didn't work out, which, I'm kind of glad about. I don't think they belonged in L.A. But [Stan] Kroenke got that and, even though there was a chance they may go in with him, I don't think that'll happen. So then, Las Vegas stepped up and offered that they would build a stadium. So that's where they had to go.If it were a decision - Do you want to play in Oakland or do you want to play in Las Vegas - we would all say "we want you to play in Oakland." And Mark Davis, who's making the decision, would

  • Dexter Fowler will have a special place in Cubs' World Series history

    Tucked into all the history that comes with the Chicago Cubs making their first World Series appearance since 1945 is one amazing fact that Dexter Fowler learned about not long after spraying champagne all over the clubhouse. When he leads off Game 1 of the 2016 World Series, Fowler is going to be the first African-American to play for the Chicago Cubs in the World Series. Robinson played his first game with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947, two years after the Cubs lost in seven games to the Detroit Tigers in the 1945 World Series.

  • NFL morning after: The decline of Colin Kaepernick

    Colin Kaepernick is the NFL’s most significant player off the field, a player whose simple act of declining to stand during the national anthem has led to wide-ranging discussions across America about race, police brutality, free speech and the role of sport in society. That has been the subject of thousands of commentaries. But it’s not the subject of this commentary. Instead, I want to talk about why I also consider Kaepernick the most fascinating NFL player off the field. And the reason for that is simple: He has rapidly declined from a very good quarterback to a terrible quarterback, at an age when most quarterbacks are still getting better. It was less than four years ago that Kaepernick

  • Leafs place ex-Sharks LW on waivers, claim ex-Sharks RW

    With just four periods left to go on their road trip, the Sharks were in pretty optimal shape. They had already won three of their first four games, and were sitting in the visiting dressing room in Pittsburgh in the second intermission with a 2-0 lead after their best period of the young season. That’s when it came undone.  The Penguins reeled off three straight third period goals to shock San Jose on Thursday night, and the Sharks concluded their trip by getting spanked by the Red Wings in a game that they were never really in on Saturday. Still, it’s nothing to get alarmed about, and it was all too predictable that the Sharks might fade towards the end of the journey. This year’s training

  • Ronaldo is the most selfish player alive

    Great, now that I have your attention with that shameless clickbait, allow me to get into the actual point. We have seen for a while now certain people *cough*Cules*cough* always looking for the smallest excuse to bash Ronaldo with outlandish theories typically surrounding his body language. Yesterday and today, we reached a new level of STUPID I did not think was possible. HOW THE ACTUAL F*CK CAN YOU SAY RONALDO ASKED FOR OFFSIDE AFTER MORATA SCORED THE WINNING GOAL? The theory has already been thoroughly debunked, but allow me to add to this. Take a look at these other players shamelessly calling for offside against their own teammmates: Bellerin vs Ozil: Some Turkish league player vs Quaresma:

  • Ben Volin: Patriots didn’t run from Steelers’ defensive dare

    Bill Belichick spent all last week talking about the Steelers’ consistency, noting they have had a similar defensive scheme for the last quarter-century. Except the Blitzburg Steelers didn’t show up to Sunday’s game, a 27-16 road win for the Patriots. Instead, Mike Tomlin’s crew came armed with a game plan that was downright Belichickian. And it worked pretty well. The Steelers have played a 3-4 defensive front for as long as anyone can remember. Except on Sunday, they played almost exclusively a four-man front. The Steelers also have been known to play a lot of Cover 3, a zone defense with three deep defenders. On Sunday, they were primarily a Cover 2 team, looking a lot like the old Tampa Bay

  • Bagpipe Monday: Notre Dame’s Recruiting Problem

    The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have several big problems that need solved, but one that sticks out- that ALWAYS sticks out, has to do with recruiting. The problem with that statement is that it is a generality, and generally speaking, Notre Dame doesn’t have a recruiting problem. It certainly isn’t 2-5 against a soft schedule awful, so people’s case against coaching can probably be strengthened here, but there is a problem not seen in those rankings (which are generally viewed as weak by Notre Dame fans). Elite defensive linemen and safeties seem to look at Notre Dame’s virtually open positions (meaning: there is playing time to be had- lot’s of it) and run away with their hair on fire rather than attract these kids to Notre Dame.

  • Tie Break Tens showed that tennis shouldn't be afraid to experiment

    “I was nervous,” Dominic Thiem said with a smile in Vienna on Sunday. “I knew I had to get off to a good start.” This is what happens, it seems, when you begin your race a few feet from the finish line. Fifteen minutes earlier, Thiem and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga had been tossed onto a court and told to play a 10-point breaker. No chance to get a service hold under their belts. No chance to shank a few shots or lose a few inconsequential points as they found their range. No second chances at all. Things proceeded so rapidly that Thiem and Tsonga had to be reminded to switch sides after six points. But this was exactly what the afternoon in Vienna was supposed to be about: the shock of the new, the different,

  • One day later, Mike Zimmer is still salty and vowing to “change things up”

    Vikings coach Mike Zimmer wasn’t happy with his team’s performance after Sunday’s loss at Philadelphia. A day later, he’s still upset. “We’re trying to figure out everything right now,” Zimmer said Monday, via Chris Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “This is a gut check day. . . . We’re going to change some things up this week.” After a showing that prompted Zimmer to call his offensive line “soft,” he offered up this biting critique that should force every player to engage in soul searching: “I have faith in this football team. But faith is belief without proof, and I have no proof yet.” The defense has given Zimmer plenty of proof, but defense alone isn’t enough. As to the offense, Zimmer

  • Rangers position series, 1B: With questions surrounding first base, could a former Ranger fill the void?

    Twice in his career, Moreland has played in as many as 140 games. The seasons look remarkably similar. In 2013, he hit .232 with a .299 OBP and a .437 slugging percentage, 22 homers and 60 RBIs in 462 at-bats over 147 games. In 2016: .233/.298/.422, 22 homers and 60 RBIs in 460 at-bats over 147 games. You could make the case that he is what he is: A guy with good, not great, power and poor on-base skills at a position where power and plate discipline are highly valued. After 2013, the Rangers were so underwhelmed by Moreland, they went out and got Prince Fielder. This time around, they will simply let him go to free agency and use the money elsewhere.

  • Report: Yi Jianlian has asked for release, will be waived by Lakers

    On paper, Chinese center Yi Jianlian made a lot of sense for the Lakers, especially in Luke Walton’s system — he was the only floor spacing big on the roster. Watching Yi at the Olympics, it was easy to imagine it working out for him in the NBA this time around. In practice, he was struggling to find a consistent role with the team. He had averaged less than 11 minutes a game in the preseason, shooting 35 percent overall and 16.7 percent from three. His defense wasn’t good, and he remains a player who doesn’t exactly have a high motor. With Julius Randle, Larry Nance, Timofey Mozgov, and Tarik Black, Yi wasn’t finding a consistent niche. So he has asked out of his contract and the Lakers are

  • What does the future hold for Nationals’ Ben Revere after disappointing season in D.C.?

    When it came down the last few roster decisions before the start of the NLDS, the Washington Nationals decided to leave Ben Revere off the 25-Man roster. Revere, 28, struggled offensively throughout his first season in the nation’s capital, after injuring himself on the first day of the regular season. He finished the season with a .217/.260/.300 line over in 103 games and 375 plate appearances, over which he was worth -1.2 fWAR, down from a .306/.342/.377 line between Toronto and Philadelphia in 2015, and 2.2 and 1.9 fWAR campaigns in the previous two seasons (2015-16). Both Nationals’ skipper Dusty Baker and Washington’s GM Mike Rizzo talked about the decision to go with Michael Taylor over

  • 'The sun came up' for Buckeyes, despite loss to Penn State

    If there is panic and unrest in the Ohio State camp after Saturday's upset loss to Penn State, nobody was displaying it Monday. Coach Urban Meyer said he doesn't foresee any major personnel changes or adjustments in play calling. Quarterback J.T. Barrett said he's not particularly worried about the passing game, which struggled in the 24-21 loss at Happy Valley. The message: Whatever problems there were can be fixed, and all of Ohio State's goals are still attainable. "The sun came up," guard Billy Price said. "We've been here before. (Losing) isn't an occurrence that happens often, but we grow from this, we get tighter together and we focus in on us, and we don't worry about anything else. Because

  • Joey Bosa has me thinking playoffs

    A wise man once told me that the smartest thing to do when you realize you’re wrong is to get up on the highest platform and, in your loudest voice, admit that you were wrong. So, here goes..... I WAS WRONG ABOUT JOEY BOSA Somewhere in this podcast from March, you’ll find me incredulously questioning Garrett Sisti’s sanity when he tells me that the player he most wants the San Diego Chargers to draft is Ohio State DE Joey Bosa. I, like many others, thought that Bosa was a poor fit for the Chargers’ defensive scheme. I also thought that John Pagano was not creative enough to find ways around that. I was wrong about both of those things, too. Mostly, though, I thought Bosa was one of those “NFL-ready

    HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. — In men’s figure skating, completing a quad jump has become essential to winning world and Olympic titles. The jump has eluded Olympian Jason Brown — until today. Brown finally landed a quad and took second at Skate America on Sunday in suburban Chicago. “I’ve been dreaming about this moment. As it got more and more consistent, I knew I could get it in a program. Every time I missed it, it was that much more disappointing,” Brown said. “I know I can do it. I know I can do it. To put it out there today, skating last, huge victory.” The quad toe wasn’t perfect, as the judging panel penalized him for under-rotating it. Still, he stayed on his feet, and he is counting it as

    Fans are used to Tom Brady not revealing much to the media. But, with a little prodding, the Patriots quarterback spoke out against domestic violence when asked about New York Giants kicker Josh Brown in an interview on WEEI. Last week, police released journal entries and e-mails in which Brown admitted that he repeatedly verbally and physically abused his former wife. Brady was asked how he felt about Brown initially getting suspended for just one game for domestic violence, while Brady was suspended for four games in connection with Deflategate. Brown has since been placed on the commissioner’s exempt list while the NFL reviews new evidence in his domestic violence case. When asked if he was

  • What should be the biggest priority for the Royals this winter?

    The Royals enter a crucial off-season where they must try to capitalize on one more season with their core group that won two pennants and a championship. It is still unclear whether the team will cut payroll from last year's franchise-record $144 million payroll, or whether they will increase payroll to make on more run. Either way, the team does not have unlimited resources and will have to prioritize the areas they want to address. There are some positions that are set. Salvador Perez and Eric Hosmer are cornerstones in the lineup. Alcides Escobar has been awful offensively, but the club likes his defense enough to keep him around. Mike Moustakas is expected to return at third base after a

With the final batch of names now confirmed, there is another Manchester United star in contention for this year’s award: Paul Pogba. The £89 million summer signing has shown glimpses of his immense talent upon his Old Trafford return but has thus far failed to reach a consistently high level of performance. But thanks largely to his role in helping Juventus claim a fifth straight Serie A title last season, the 23-year-old Frenchman has made the list of hopefuls for the 2016 Ballon d’Or alongside the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Robert Lewandowski, Riyad Mahrez and previous winners
