  • Dedicated Patriots fans mock Goodell with outrageous signs at first day of camp

    Patriots camp kicked off at 9:15 on Thursday morning, and it appears that all of New England decided to try to watch the region’s beloved team practice. Check out this line, which had to be captured by USA TODAY Sports’ Tom Pelissero using the panorama setting, because that is how long it is. If a picture is worth a thousand words, this video of die-hard fans sprinting to get to training camp is worth close to a million. The majority of Patriots fans who show up for the first day of training camp are, well, Patriots fans. If you don’t know what I mean by that, just look at this picture. Let’s break it down, shall we? 1. The sign on the left says GOODELL DID HARAMBE. To translate, this poster

  • This video of Lionel Messi in training is just glorious (Luis Suárez nutmeg included)

    Lionel Messi is awesome. Not only did he cut his vacation short so he could rejoin the Barcelona squad a week earlier to train with his teammates in England and play every friendly match in preseason, he is also using the training sessions  to show just how amazing he is. These are just 140 seconds of greatness. Messi is laughing in the Rondos as he makes his teammates look like fools, he's dribbling Mathieu like he's not even there, and he's even nutmegging his good friend Luis Suárez just because why not. He's also scoring goals on little posts, because every goalpost is big enough for Messi. Just wish Messi was not blonde. But hey, you can't always get what you want. Still, Messi, you're awesome.

  • Two years ago, Jaworski saw clear gap between Nick Foles and Russell Wilson

    Three years ago, ESPN’s Ron Jaworski cooked up one of the hottest takes of all time, taking the position that quarterback Colin Kaepernick could be one of the best quarterbacks of all time. Jaworski’s opinion somehow became news for his employer, feeding the four-letter network’s engine for several days in August 2013. A year later, Jaworski offered up an even hotter — but far less memorable — take regarding quarterbacks Nick Foles and Russell Wilson. Given a choice between the two, which would he pick? “I’m taking Foles,” Jaworski said. “Not even close. Russell Wilson is just . . . because of that system he is in. Russell Wilson plays with that defense, the best in football. He just managed

  • Brock Lesnar WWE Wellness Policy Exemption Considered Unfair ‘Double Standard’ Backstage

    When news first broke that Brock Lesnar would not be suspended by WWE for failing two UFC drug tests, superstars backstage were pretty upset. But now that the word has gotten out that Brock is completely exempt from the policy altogether, the feelings in the locker room have reportedly flowered into outrage over the double standard of the Wellness Policy. According to Dave Meltzer in the latest issue of the Wrestling Observer newsletter, when the locker room learned that Lesnar has never been tested at any time under the Wellness Policy, performers declared this to be an unfair double standard due in large part to the nature of part-timers’ contracts already: While no performer in WWE is likely

    The Heat signed Dion Waiters to a room-exception contract. Heat president Pat Riley, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald: “Dion is not a Room Exception player. He wanted to play for the Miami Heat and chose to forgo other more lucrative financial opportunities to be a part of our championship organization. We are very honored that he made the commitment to come to South Florida and sign with us. Dion is young, athletic and explosive, which fits in with our roster. He will add a great dimension for us at the off-guard spot. I really like the depth and versatility that we now have in our perimeter positions. Welcome aboard Dion!” I’m really curious about those “more lucrative financial opportunities.”

  • 2016 NFL Preview: Vikings hope to get Adrian Peterson to a Super Bowl

    Shutdown Corner is previewing all 32 teams as we get ready for the NFL season, counting down the teams one per day in reverse order of our initial 2016 power rankings. There are probably two categories of Minnesota Vikings fans: Ones who have convinced themselves that Adrian Peterson is a superhero and will be a Hall of Fame running back forever, and the ones who worry if the rest of the Vikings will peak when Peterson is still in his prime. Back then Peterson was destined to be the NFL’s Ernie Banks and never play for a championship, at least for Minnesota.

  • Joey Votto Apparently Ripped Apart A Kid Who Wanted His Batting Gloves

    Joey Votto’s heel turn continued Wednesday night at AT&T Park. The Cincinnati Reds first baseman has messed with fans a few times this season, earning himself a reputation as one of Major League Baseball’s biggest villains. He apparently added to that reputation during the finale of the Reds’ three-game series against the San Francisco Giants by refusing to give in to one kid’s demands. Votto probably was being playful. And hey, just because a kid asks for something doesn’t mean a player is obligated to fork it over. But this incident probably won’t do Votto any favors in the court of public opinion. Then again, he probably doesn’t care. Thumbnail photo via David Kohl/USA TODAY Sports Images

  • Andrea Bargnani is heading to Spain, and this is probably the end

    Free-agent big man Andrea Bargnani will return to Europe, signing a two-year deal with Saski Baskonia of Spain’s ACB — widely acknowledged as the second-best professional hoops league in the world — that, more than likely, spells the end of the NBA road for the former No. 1 overall draft pick. The 7-footer entered the NBA in 2006 after spending the first four years of his professional career in his native Italy, showcasing a sharpshooting touch from beyond the 3-point arc that helped Benetton Treviso win the 2006 Serie A title and earned him designation as the Euroleague’s 2005-06 Rising Star, an honor given to the top 22-and-under performer in the continental competition. Bargnani acquitted himself pretty admirably in his first few years in Toronto, offering scoring punch and an outside shooting threat on teams led by Chris Bosh and the T.J. Ford/Jose Calderon point guard combination that hung around the middle of the Eastern Conference pack.

  • How Nick Foles’ Release Just Made Ryan Fitzpatrick A Nice Chunk Of Change

    Nick Foles might be the dumbest man in American, but at least one other NFL quarterback should be thanking him for it. Foles, the Los Angeles Rams quarterback, reportedly was released by the team Wednesday at his request. The 27-year-old was set to make up to $8.75 million this season, per Spotrac, but has been upset since the team selected quarterback Jared Goff with the No. 1 overall selection in the NFL draft earlier this year. Apparently getting paid nearly $9 million to live in L.A. — where it’s 75 and sunny all the time — for a year just wasn’t good enough for the now ex-Ram. Meanwhile, ESPN’s Ed Werder dropped this little nugget regarding the ripple effect Foles’ situation had on free

It will be the first summer in 12 years without former head coach Tom Coughlin at the helm. Ben McAdoo is now the head man and he is excited to get cracking. "We started to establish our identity- without pads- but sound, smart and tough, committed to discipline and poise," McAdoo said at the end of minicamp in June. "We know what it looks like now. We had a chance to sit down, we had a chance to define it and lay the foundation for when we do get the pads on." The first training camp session will be held on Friday morning. The team will hold 11 practices
