Sorry, Jerry Jones, but your giant big screen is so yesterday. The Atlanta Falcons’ new $1.6 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium is where it’s at now. Their 58-by-1,100-foot circular LED board that will ring the the stadium’s roof is going to be “three times as large as the current largest single display board in the NFL.” Oh, here’s another NFL stadium fun fact for you: the video board at EverBank Field in Jacksonville is also actually larger than the one in Jerry World too. Ha!
Normally, we hear about quarterbacks being not only the leaders of the offense, but the leaders of their entire team.
Doesn't it seem like we hear about teammates disliking their quarterback more and more?
There could be some reasons for it, like the Seahawks allegedly ot liking the favoritism shown to Russell Wilson. Or, teammates could simply not like how their quarterback fails to live up to the "leader" role that should normally fall on his shoulders.
Like Cam Newton's teammates in Carolina.
As if the Chicago Cubs didn’t have enough young stars on their current roster to make a splash. Now their minor league players are getting national headlines with their exemplary talents. Eloy Jimenez, who is the Cubs’ top prospect, has plus-plus power and a .546 slugging percentage with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. The young slugger flaunted his tremendous swing at the Class A Advanced Carolina League’s Home Run Derby on Monday. Jimenez did not disappoint.
Jimenez smashed a baseball into another orbit during the derby and it went so far that it obliterated a set of lights high on a pole past the fence in left field. The blast by the 20-year-old phenom ruptured the lights which sparked comparisons to Roy Hobbs’ triumphant blast in “The Natural.”
This is scary no matter how you slice it.
Playing tackle football consistently obviously has a negative affect on the brain. This is something we're tragically reminded of every time a legend of the game speaks to the media years later.
Some of those legends have managed to void brain damage, but it sounds like Warren Sapp isn't one of them.
On Tuesday, rumors that the Golden State Warriors had unanimously decided as a team to skip this year’s customary White House visit as NBA champions went viral, but the team eventually denied that any decision had been made regarding the matter. A few days later, team leader Steph Curry, who has been critical of Trump’s presidency, spoke to the media and told them that he probably wasn’t going to White House later this year.
“Somebody asked me about (going to the White House) a couple of months ago, like a hypothetical, if the championship were to happen would I do it and I think I answered ‘I wouldn’t go’. I still feel like that today,” he said. “But, obviously as a team, we’re going to have a conversation.
In an appearance on the Fox Business Channel,, FS1 host Jason Whitlock called Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors “cowardly and un-American” for simply ignoring the President and not trying to engage him with civil discourse.
The Cavs might be in play to get another weapon to help them combat the Golden State Warriors. According to a report from ESPN, the Indiana Pacers have reached out to the Cavs after a potential Paul George trade after the Pacers superstar forward told the team that he had every intention of going to the Lakers after next season.
The NFL’s competitive balance has always been a delicate thing. It’s supposed to be governed by this vaguely noble code of competition that says the players, since they have little money guaranteed to them, will give all they can on every snap. With everyone always going at full speed, the thinking goes, there’s no room for the tanking tactics of the NBA or other leagues. It’s why football history is littered with teams who inexplicably won in December to screw their draft pick for the following year. The famous Nate Poole catch that knocked the Minnesota Vikings out of the playoffs on the team’s last play of the 2003 season also cost the Arizona Cardinals the top pick in the draft and the rights to a quarterback named Eli Manning.
As recently as December 2011 — in a Sports Illustrated article about presumptive no. 1 pick Andrew Luck — then–Colts vice chariman Bill Polian said the idea of late-season tanking never crossed his mind.”I am proud to be part of an organization and part of a league where players and coaches give 100 percent effort in every game,’’ Polian told SI. “Maybe that’s why we’re such a popular sport.’’ To be fair, Peyton Manning’s bum neck took care of all the tanking for Polian.
Six years later, and a former general manager is saying the exact opposite — that...
Frank Kaminsky III is the type of guy who loves to stir up trouble, even from a place of genuine curiosity. He has the lyrics to Eminem's "Without Me" in his Twitter bio, for Pete's sake.
So on Friday morning, he woke up and decided to take aim at the NCAA with one tweet, asking his followers to follow the money trail.
It seems that the only thing NBA champions love more than actually winning the ship, is the trolling that comes afterwards.
Last year, all of LeBron's antics were extensively documented.
Whether it was the 'Ultimate Warrior' shirt he wore as he stepped off the plane victorious in Cleveland, or the cake he put on display this past Halloween, the King was sure to get his jabs in.
So now it's the Warriors turn, but of course there's one man who's really been itching to return fire. I'm sure this comes as no surprise.
This is the shirt Draymond elected to wear at the Warriors ceremonial parade.
Here we go again.
According to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski, LeBron James is now likely to bolt from Cleveland for a second time, this time to head out West to join either the Lakers or the Clippers.
