Brady Court Battle Moved to New York

Tom Brady and the player’s association are taking Roger Goodell and the NFL to court. Not necessarily to determine whether or not Brady knew footballs were deflated, but to question the NFL’s process in this matter. Initially it appeared as if this case would be heard in Minnesota, but it has been moved to New […]

Ranking the Heavyweight Division 1-6

While Deontay Wilder holds the WBC version of the heavyweight championship, there’s no room for reasonable debate about who holds the true heavyweight crown in professional boxing. Wladimir Klitschko has the lineal, WBA, WBO and IBF versions of the belts. He’s been a dominant force at the top of the division for almost this entire […]

Jonathan Martin is Retiring

Jonathan Martin became a household name a few years ago when he was a member of the Dolphins and was an alleged victim of bullying from former teammate Richie Incognito. He has since been picked up  and dropped by the Niners, before being claimed off waivers by Carolina. Martin has decided to hang it up […]

Watch: Stud HS Senior Zach Norvell Drops 53 Pts, 14 3-Pointers To Win Las Vegas Classic

It appears as if the NCAA and NBA ranks are in good hands going forward as star freshmen like Ben Simmons, Skal Labissiere, Brandon Ingram, and Jamal Murray are set to dominate the collegiate level beginning this season and future studs like Thon Maker, Dennis Smith Jr, and Jason Tatum are on deck as rising […]

Gennady Golovkin vs. David Lemieux Set for October 17

So far in this decade, Gennady Golovkin has been the sport’s most avoided fighter. Sergio Martinez didn’t want any part of GGG when he reigned as the lineal champion at 160 pounds and Miguel Cotto has been no more anxious to face the Kazakhstan native since deposing of Martinez last year. While Golovkin has been […]

Yunieski Gonzalez Gets Robbed but Makes Statement at Light Heavyweight

Saturday night in Las Vegas on HBO, unified light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev made a mandatory defense against the IBF’s idea of a No. 1 contender in Nadjib Mohammedi, knocking the Frenchman out in three rounds. It was a joke of a fight. Mohammedi is a respectable, second-tier contender at 175 pounds who had none […]

Broncos Sign Demaryius Thomas to a 5-Year, $70 Million Deal

NFL teams had until this week to sign franchised players to long-term deals or else they wouldn’t be able to do so until 2016. With certain players threatening to hold out, some teams were forced to hand over big sums of money to players. This was successful for Dez Bryant and he came to terms […]

Dez Bryant, Cowboys Come to Terms on 5-Year, $70 Million Deal

Dez Bryant more or less threatened the Dallas Cowboys into the long-term deal he was looking for. On Monday, Dez tweeted that he’d miss games if no deal was met by today and there’s no doubt that he was serious. Well today, he got what he was looking for and deserved. Dez and Dallas came […]

On This Day in Boxing History: Emile Griffith Beat Dick Tiger

Two of the greatest pound-for-pound boxers of the 1960s fought on this day in 1970, with Emile Griffith handing a decision loss to Dick Tiger in the final fight of Tiger’s career. Griffith would continue to compete until 1977, but the only truly notable fighter he beat after Tiger was middleweight contender Bennie Briscoe, in […]

Is Carson Palmer Still for Real?

Carson Palmer is back and ready to play. But is he really back? The Arizona Cardinals have pretty much had the defensive side of the ball covered in all areas for the last few years. The offense has been a roller coaster that has kept the Cardinals from reaching the next stage and become a […]

The Giants’ Jason Pierre-Paul is still in the hospital nursing a hand injury suffered from a fireworks accident on July 4. However, he’s not the only NFLers who had a mishap.

Jason Pierre-Paul Had Finger Amputated, Broke Thumb in Fireworks Accident

Similar to the Bucs’ CJ Wilson, the Giants’ Jason Pierre-Paul lost a finger as result of a fireworks accident. JPP had his right index finger amputated per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. But not only did he lose a finger, but he also suffered a broken thumb on that same hand. Unfortunate turn of event for the […]

Federal Judge Orders Cancellation of Redskins’ Trademarks

The legal battle of the Washington Redskins nickname has no end in sight. The name has been around forever, but that doesn’t justify the fact that Native Americans are highly offended by it. Earlier today, a federal judge ordered the cancellation of the federal trademark of the team’s name. It may not be today or […]

Donovan McNabb Arrested for DUI Again

Last year, former Eagle, Redskin and Viking QB Donovan McNabb made headlines when he was cited in Arizona for DUI. Apparently, that was no deterrent as he was arrested yet again in Arizona on the same charge. This time, the citation was a result of him being in a traffic accident. Former NFL quarterback Donovan […]

Ginobili Says He’s Not Retiring, Will Return Next Season

It seems like every summer there’s questions as to whether or not Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili will be returning to the Spurs. Duncan has stated he’ll be back next year and today, Ginobili tweeted the same. I mean, after acquiring LaMarcus Aldridge, why would either of them decide to leave now?

Jaguars Receiver Corps Coming to Shape

Remember Justin Blackmon? I know right?! He was once one of the top receiving prospects the NFL had seen. And the Jaguars had him. Definitely a player to build your offense around. He had some phenomenal games early in his career, (I know because he helped me win my fantasy football league one year!), and […]

This Day in Boxing History: Ezzard Charles Was Born

On this day in 1921, the Cincinnati Cobra, Ezzard Charles, was born in Georgia. Charles would emerge in the years after World War II as a heavyweight champion and one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the sport. Charles achieved his first major success as a boxer in the amateur ranks, when he captured a […]

Serena Defeats Venus in Wimbledon Semifinals

Even though the majority of their respective careers have already happened, watching Serena and Venus Williams square off in tennis is still special. The two faced one another today in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon. Sure, each wants to win, but I can only imagine how difficult it must be to celebrate a win over your […]

Today in 1958: Joe Jeannette Passed Away

On this day in 1958, Joe Jeannette died at 78 years of age. Jeannette is one of the best fighters to never win a world championship, and even though he was never a world champion, he still deserves to rank among the top 20 to 25 heavyweights of all time. Jeannette was a contemporary and […]
