    Vancouver Canucks netminder Ryan Miller still has hard feelings over how he has been portrayed in the debate over the size of goaltending equipment. Last season, TSN’s Ray Ferraro pointed out how Miller and Carey Price wear the same size pant even though Price is much heavier than the 168-pound Miller.

  • Fifth USGP win draws Hamilton level with Schumacher’s record

    Lewis Hamilton drew level with Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher for the most United States Grand Prix victories by taking his fifth win on Sunday in Austin, Texas. He’s the third driver overall to do so, with Ayrton Senna having also won five times in the U.S. – albeit only two of them in the USGP title in Phoenix. He also won three Detroit Grands Prix from 1986 through 1988. Hamilton won his first grand prix on American soil back in 2007 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and had won three of the four races held at the Circuit of The Americas since 2012 heading into the Austin weekend. A perfect start saw Hamilton forge an early lead over Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo and Mercedes teammate Nico

    Gilbert Arenas' infamous $111 MILLION contract with the Washington Wizards is finally about to expire ... and Gilbert says he will be so poor, he won't be able to afford private school for his kids.  Gilbert signed the 6-year guaranteed contract back in 2008 -- but according to new court filings in his family law case, obtained by TMZ Sports, Arenas will get his last installment on October 31st (the contract was paid out over 8 years). It was good while it lasted ... and Gilbert knew it when he spoke to our photog about the contract in 2013. The problem, Arenas says ... is now that he's no longer getting NBA checks, he'll only earn $169,895 per year in investment income ... not enough to live

  • 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

  • Russian deputy minister suspended over doping resigns

    MOSCOW (AP) — A Russian deputy minister who was suspended following allegations he covered up doping cases at the 2014 Winter Olympics has resigned, the government said Monday. Deputy Sports Minister Yuri Nagornykh was the most prominent among a group of sports officials suspended in July by order of President Vladimir Putin following the publication of a World Anti-Doping Agency report which accused them of covering up hundreds of doping cases, including at the Sochi Games. Nagornykh had vehemently denied allegations of a state cover-up, a position shared by the Russian government, but disappeared from public life since the suspension. His departure comes in the run-up to the publication of

  • Giants still in last place in division despite win over Rams, 4-3 record

    The New York Giants may have turned their season around the past two weeks with two hard-fought victories, but they are still on the bottom looking up in the suddenly competitive NFC East. The frontrunning Dallas Cowboys (5-1) remained alone in first place after a bye week; the Philadelphia Eagles stunned the previously-undefeated Minnesota Vikings, 21-10, at home to improve to 4-2 and move to second place; and the Washington Redskins fell in the final seconds to the Lions in Detroit, 20-17, to fall to 4-3 on the year. With a little over half the season remaining, only a few division games have been played. The Eagles, who play Dallas next week, have only played one game in the division thus far.

  • 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

  • VIDEO: Chelsea’s Pedro capitalizes on Manchester United error 30 seconds in

    Just 30 seconds into Jose Mourinho’s return, Manchester United trailed. A long ball over the top from Marcos Alonso seemed ill-fated with three defenders surrounding Pedro, but Chris Smalling never collected himself and Pedro snuck through, snatching the ball and rounding David De Gea to put the Blues up almost immediately. His goal is the fastest in the Premier League this season. The game exploded open following the goal, with Manchester United looking for an equalizer almost straight away. Zlatan Ibrahimovic headed over and Marcus Rashford caused problems down the left inside the opening 10 minutes.

  • 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

  • Bill Belichick Not Making Excuses For Stephen Gostkowski After Fifth Missed Kick

    After Arizona Cardinals kicker Chandler Catanzaro missed a chip-shot field goal in Sunday night’s bizarre tie against the Seattle Seahawks, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians laid into him. “Make it,” Arians said in his postgame news conference. “He’s a professional. This ain’t high school. You get paid to make it.” Bill Belichick wasn’t nearly as blunt Monday morning when discussing his own kicker, Stephen Gostkowski, but the New England Patriots coach admitted Gostkowski hadn’t fulfilled every part of his job description this season. Asked whether the NFL’s new touchback rule — which teams have subverted by placing kickoffs closer to the goal line rather than booting them out of the end zone — has

  • Kaepernick doesn’t think anthem protests affect ratings

    Commissioner Roger Goodell and 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick likely don’t agree on much. But here’s one thing on which they occupy the same page: They believe the 2016 drop in TV ratings has nothing to do with the ongoing national anthem protests. “I don’t know much about ratings and how they are affected and all of those things,” Kaepernick said after Sunday’s loss to the Buccaneers, via Andy Furillo of the Sacramento Bee. “But I don’t understand why ratings would go down, fighting for justice for people, to try to stop oppression, especially in a league that is predominantly black.” Goodell was blunt and concise last week when asked about the potential connection by reporters: “That it’s

  • 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

  • Pogba joins Zlatan on 2016 Ballon d’Or shortlist

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
