The Philadelphia 76ers are absolutely wretched and even dogs know it. They had a little bit of fight in them when they had Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes, but not much really. And those guys were traded for second-round picks and open boxes of Playtex maxi pads. So, the...

The Onion has produced a ton of genius content over the years, but this might be my favorite. The concept is brilliant and the execution is flawless. The Los Angeles Clippers may be a really good basketball team these days, but it’s not long ago that they were picking...

LeeElia

Have you ever heard the rant from Chicago Cubs manager Lee Elia back in 1983? It’s one of the greatest things in sports history. This is probably not safe for work as Elia weaves a tapestry of obscenities that is still hanging over Lake Michigan today. Elia isn’t ripping...

ColeHamels

Cole Hamels stunned many in Philadelphia when it came out during spring training that he wouldn’t be ready for the start of the season for the Philies. He had shoulder issues that are now being called bicep tendinitis or whatever and it sucked because it was his throwing arm....

AldonSmith

I mentioned before that San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith was in danger of being cut after his latest incident with the law at LAX, where he told agents that he had a bomb. Well done, Aldon. But, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the 49ers will actually be...

DonovanMcNabb

For all the criticism that Donovan McNabb endured during his career with the Philadelphia Eagles, fans could never say that he was a guy that was out getting arrested. Well, they can now. KTAR.com confirms that McNabb was arrested for a “criminal traffic citation,” although they don’t go into...

The New York Giants don’t have a ton of concerns at the quarterback position, unless you’re one of the people worried that Eli Manning could be on the downside of his career. While you always have to have a backup, Eli doesn’t miss games. The Giants drafted Ryan Nassib...

Donald Trump golf resort

There’s been a lot of talk – maybe too much talk – about Donald Trump potentially buying the Buffalo Bills. Of course, with Trump comes controversy. So you’re hearing people talk about how he ruined the USFL, that he says things like he’s buying an NFL team all the...

AldonSmith

I’m sure you’ve heard about the latest incident for San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker Aldon Smith. It’s just one thing after another with him, and this time he was arrested for mentioning that he has a bomb in an airport. And after speaking with several sources familiar with the...

AndrewMacDonald

A couple of months ago, the Philadelphia Flyers sent a 2014 third-round pick and a 2015 second-round pick to the New York Islanders in exchange for defenseman Andrew MacDonald. Set to become a free agent after this season, MacDonald was auditioning for a new contract with the Flyers. And...

The Philadelphia Eagles clearly wanted to replace the big plays of DeSean Jackson (knowing beforehand their plans to dump him, of course) and/or upgrade the backup running back position. Maybe it’s a little of both. Regardless, a new report indicates that Chip Kelly definitely wanted to upgrade from Bryce...

Daniel Sedin

While tons of teams (just about every single one of them) are excited to be starting the NHL playoffs, some people are going home. The Vancouver Canucks are one of those teams, so they don’t have to worry so much about the devastating hit that Daniel Sedin took on...

AldonSmith

Oh, Aldon Smith. In case you hadn’t heard, everyone’s favorite troubled San Francisco 49er is back in the news. This time, he was arrested at LAX for getting belligerent with a TSA agent and claiming that he had a bomb. I’m not sure if you noticed or not, but...

EliManning

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning just had ankle surgery, but he’s expected to be ready for camp. It doesn’t seem like that long ago, but Eli was a rookie back in 2004 and is now 33-years old. Crazy, huh? His contract runs through 2015 and the Giants could...

RyanZimmerman

I’m a huge fan of Washington Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman. But, this guy just can’t seem to stay healthy. Whether it’s one thing or another, you can pretty much schedule a DL stint or two or three into his season during the spring exhibition season. This time, Zimmerman...

Tampa Bay Lightning forward Ryan Malone has had a pretty rough season on the ice this year. But, apparently he didn’t feel like it was enough to just stink on the ice, he thought he could carry that over to life. Malone was arrested early Saturday morning on DUI...

LeSeanMcCoy

When the Philadelphia Eagles released wide receiver DeSean Jackson, there really wasn’t a single teammate that came out in his defense. To the contrary, some came out and said “good riddance.” But, according to Howard Eskin of 94 WIP in Philadelphia, there is someone who seems uneasy about the...

Dwayne Bowe

You may remember that back in November Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was arrested for marijuana. The circumstances that were reported were a little ridiculous as he could have done more to hide the fact that he was smoking pot. It should be noted that Bowe was...

TeddyBridgewater

It wasn’t all that long ago that Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was considered the No. 1 pick in this upcoming NFL Draft. A lot has changed over the last couple of months and it has nothing to do with all 32 teams being set at quarterback. I mentioned a...

ChipKelly

There has been some speculation in the fallout of the DeSean Jackson saga that perhaps Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly doesn’t know how to deal with professional athletes. Jackson aside, there was also the report about Evan Mathis, the guard who apparently asked for more money and was...

JimJohnson

I mentioned a little while ago that the Oakland Athletics’ patience with closer Jim Johnson was wearing thin. He’s off to a horrific start this season, allowing seven earned runs in 3 1/3 innings. Johnson was a phenomenal closer in that last couple of years, but clearly he’s in...

Brandon Lloyd

Brandon Lloyd must be some kind of headache. He was out of the league last year after being pretty productive for the New England Patriots. In 2012, he caught 74 balls for 911 yards, yet in 2013 he wasn’t on a roster. Still on 32-years old, Lloyd is apparently...

It really sucks to be the Cleveland Browns. The front office has been terrible lately, the coaches have been bad and the majority of the players on their team are not good at football. So, when they do get a good player, it’s of utmost importance to keep them....

I mentioned the other day that Los Angeles Dodgers serial knucklehead Yasiel Puig busted his thumb while sliding into first base. It was a play where he didn’t need to slide, making the mistake all that more egregious. Well, someone else did it now too. While we didn’t see...
