OP makes it sound like it's some random white guy they singled out of the crowd. Jordan Kilganon makes a living out of dunking and it's one of those planned-out reaction videos.
Not to take away from his skills though, he knows how to bring down the house!
She called the Swedish team "cowards" for playing a defensive game and beating us in penalty kicks after a draw.
>"We had that style of play when Pia was our coach. I don't think they're going to make it far in the tournament. I think it was very cowardly," Solo said after the match. "But, they won. They're moving on. And we're going home."
She's a perpetual embarrassment off the pitch.
They have a longer, better clip on ESPN, where Draymond, Deandre, and Demaryius Thomas also weigh in.
Watching the instagram post, I thought it was weird at first, because all I heard Butler say was that he could play in the NFL, not he'd be better than current NFL stars, so I thought Durant was just twisting his words. Full clip clears it up though.
For people wondering, this is Davante Adams. He is a receiver for the Greenbay Packers. I know its hard to find sports outside of /r/NFL or other sport subreddits, but I thought I might as well spread some knowledge so you guys can bring it up to friends and seem like you know what you are talking about.
Yeah.. that is my biggest question here.
So the guy is apparently fat. And the guy apparently has a serious ankle injury.
Yet he still has the same YPC as Ezekiel Elliott and he is doing that without the home run plays
Here's the ESPN source that PFT conveniently forgot to link to.
> Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett and left tackle Bradley Sowell got into a heated dust-up Sunday that resulted in both players getting pulled from practice.
>Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the fight was the result of Sowell shoving defensive end Josh Shirley to the ground earlier in a one-on-one drill. When Bennett got a turn to face Sowell, the two players mixed it up and ended up on the ground before they were separated.
>"He's just fighting for his own a little bit," Carroll said of Bennett. "One of the young guys got knocked around, and he was standing up for him. He's got a lot of pride. He's an incredible competitor, but he's got to make sure he stays poised so he doesn't get himself in trouble. So we had a good illustration of that today."
"I don't like gays. Write that down in your little notebook. I don't like gays." - Brock Lesnar.
While looking the quote up, I came across this (warning: Stormfront). What a wretched selection of cunts; I can't believe they're actually serious.
It definitely took Kyrie awhile to warm up to an undrafted guy going at him every day in practice. Tristan had some funny quotes last year about having to separate them a few times.
Here's an article from last year that talks about them mixing it up in practice.
I didn't realize it was possible to give up 700 yards in a game. Case Keenum never managed that, and he dropped over 70 points on us twice. WKU only managed 650 on us in the season opener. This is uncharted territory now.
It's like breaking the sound barrier for the first time. No one is quite sure what will happen, but we're pretty sure God didn't intend for mankind to do this, and even our most optimistic scientists think it might end with me bleeding from my eyes and ears.
Coincidentally, when Ichiro visited KC in 06 he made the biggest donation to the Negro Leagues HOF of any active player.
I'll probably get a deluge of downvotes for this, but the 1945 Army team is often considered to be one of the best teams of the entire era, not just 1945.
I'm honestly not trying to rain of the Oklahoma State parade here, but I can't imagine how the AFCA disregards Army.
My fiance and I have been asking ourselves that question every f%&(g week, all 3 weeks of the season. Hell, I think if you're in the end zone even an inch, you kneel; the 25 yard line is a good starting point, but every ST player wants to be the hero.
How many KR have resulted in a TD this season?
Hmmm... The average is nearly where they get it. Stop putting yourself and your teammates in harm's way and take the 25 yards.
Unless you can do what Ty did.
Of course Wilson had to join the group. Ugh. Such a brilliant drive by Tannehill and co. late just wasted...
And welcome to another episode of "LETS TAKE REX QUOTES OUT OF CONTEXT!"
This weeks contestants, the dude that wrote this tweet and title of the post.
Alright, get ready!
His Wednesday conference call with Patriots reports got a bit testy when a reporter challenged Ryan on the idea that he is an above average coach. The exchange got a bit heated, and Ryan ended the call by saying, "I'll show you average who."
By Thursday, Ryan was laughing it all off.
"I don't even care," Ryan said. "It's like, whatever. That doesn't bother me at all. Let's face it, we're here in Buffalo, nobody likes anything in Boston."
So were the Patriots reporters just trying to get under his skin?
"Oh please. I mean, it's not like the first time," Ryan said with a laugh. "This is like seven or eight years -- it's the same every time you talk to them. So you have fun with them, going back and forth."
Wouldn't be as controversial if the beginning of that sentence was included, eh?
Edit: And here's the video of the quote in question., judge for yourself if this is getting reported in a pretty disingenuous way.
I am proud of have Keep Pounding sewn into the collar of my jersey (as it is with all Carolina jerseys, of course!)
For those that don't know, we use this phrase to honor the late great player/coach Sam Mills after he coined it in an emotional locker room speech during the 2004 playoffs, just a year before he passed away.
> "When I found out I had cancer, there were two things I could do: quit or keep pounding," Mills said that day. "I'm a fighter. I kept pounding. You're fighters, too. Keep pounding!"
Khris Davis: 2.0% of team's stolen bases.
Chris Davis: 5.6% of team's stolen bases.
The answer is clear, ladies & gentlemen.
Dwyane Wade has played his entire professional career without a meniscus in his left knee.
This isn't satire, this is an actual quote.
>"Chemistry is not an exact science," Andrada said. "Some things, as you can see, went longer than expected.
Soo there are official color rush jerseys that literally won't be worn? What a blatant money grab.
"Here is the official color rush jersey! Tune in Thursday Night to see none of your players wear it!"
Edit: Browns, Falcons, Jets, Texans, Rams and Cardinals will all wear white in their games. Also, the Colts, Redskins and Lions will not be wearing their jerseys this year. Source
> Arguably, he did much worse, but it still is a double standard.
Did he? I'm not sure that it was worse, save for the fact that his fiancee was knocked out and it was caught on tape.
Also, it looks like the doors are maybe opening for him to come back.
Even this was from two days ago. Who knows, maybe he'll be back too.
A lot - so much so that in Cassel's first year at the Chiefs, he'd call up Brady every week to exchange notes. They're still really close.
He tried to honor all of them by wearing pink all last season but the NFL wouldn't let him. Pink is only allowed during the prescribed month that honors breast cancer. just one more reason the NFL as an entity sucks a whole bag of eggs.
To be fair, I think it was just one of them. The rest of the dudes were just as caught off guard and upset about it as most people were; not so much about their political views, but more about hijacking a group performance for personal motivations.
It sucks because you have to put yourself before your family when your family is being greedy. But putting yourself before family never sounds good. Same thing happened to Tyron Smith, and he ended up cutting his family off. I can imagine that it ruined some relationships.
off topic - but i take every opportunity i can to make sure people know what a saint EJ is.
anyone who watches TNT knows he's a great guy - but not everyone knows the story of just how good a guy he really is.
we're talking human of the century. love this man
Seeing Packers fans complain about the refs
Edit - The reason why this feels so good
For every team except the team with the mini-Bird rights, ie the Knicks.
>"The rate goes up for every $5 million, so the tax due to Lin would have depended on how much salary the Knicks would have had without Lin," ESPN cap expert Larry Coon said. "For example, if they are right at the tax line without Lin, then his $15 million will cost them $28.75 million in tax. If they're $10 million over the tax line before Lin, then his salary will cost them an extra $47.5 million in tax.
>In a league where the essence of trading is matching salaries, Lin's salary was nearly unmatchable for New York. That won't be as true for the Rockets, however. In another CBA wrinkle, for trade purposes, Lin's salary, on the Rockets or any other team, is averaged over the contract. If the Rockets want to trade Lin, his annual salary counts as $8.4 million at any time, making him that much less of a risk.
> Hart, who is 6-foot-4, 315 pounds, played prep football in Nevada, with the dream of becoming a Division I player. After his junior season at Fernley High School, he received recruiting letters from Washington, Oregon and Nevada and even nicknamed himself "D-1." But because he had a 1.8 grade point average -- and thought it was of no use to take the SAT -- those schools stopped recruiting him. Ashamed to let anyone know, he assured his coaches and classmates that he was still a national recruit -- and continued his lie throughout his senior season of high school.
Ouch. He was too dumb to play college football.
So for those who don't follow the team closely, this is some recycled and cobbled together stuff.
His original comments came from an hour-long interview on a new ESPN Wisconsin radio show with Jason Wilde, who he used to do a weekly show with, and Mark Tauscher, who used to play for the Packers.
That was a week ago.
After the Milwaukee stuff, Wilde went to Rodgers for a quote and then wrote it up with a new news peg.
Nothing wrong with any of that, but the context is helpful. Also kinda wonder why the OP didn't post the Wilde story from ESPN.
Jerome Simpson had 2 pounds of weed shipped to his house through the mail.
Urban Meyer was forced to do house chores. Does that make it better?
Shout out to the great journalism at ESPN!
For anyone who doesn't know the story ESPN did a really good 30 for 30 special on him that covers how it happened really well.
If i recall the shittiest thing was one of the news agencies who full on accused him of doing it took their case all the way to the supreme court or a higher district court, who upheld that Jewell was a public figure at the time and thus didn't have some of the same protections of slander or libel or some shit.
@RedditCFB was also featured on the Paul Finebaum show when 247 Sports named it one of the Top 10 CFB Twitter accounts on Monday. ESPN also named it one of the 20 "Must-Follow" CFB accounts in April.
Sosa didn't cork his bat to cheat. Here's the story.
After the incident, all 76 of Sosa's bats were tested for cork, and none were corked.
The corked bat was found in the first inning. Sosa said that it was a batting practice bat. Makes sense that the last bat you put down in batting practice will be the first you pick up for the game.
His excuse is pretty standard for getting caught with a corked bat, but because it was the only corked bat he owned, I believe him.
There was also this article defending giving Tebow (4 of 10 for 79yds, 1 TD and 6 carries for 38 yards, 1 TD) a better rating in a loss after playing only half the game than Rodgers (26 of 39 for 396yds, 2 TDs) in a win. They later adjusted both of those grades as well.
From Kevin Seifert:
>Very interesting anecdote from Joe Banner on ESPN' NFL Insiders. Banner interviewed Chip Kelly in 2013 for the Cleveland Browns' job. When he asked which NFL quarterback fit what he would be looking for in the NFL version of his offense, Kelly responded: Christian Ponder. Kelly wanted a quarterback who provides the threat of a run even if he doesn't do it often. Ponder, of course, is currently Kelly's No. 3 quarterback with the 49ers.
"Goff's four-year contract is worth $27.9 million with more than $18.5 million guaranteed"
I am so glad a guy who has no idea where the sun rises will make more money in his first contract than 15 people working an entire lifetime.
According to this article by Mike Reiss:
>New England Patriots starting defensive end Rob Ninkovich will serve a four-game suspension to open the 2016 regular season after a positive test for a banned substance, and said he is devastated and shocked because he would never knowingly take an illegal substance.
>"Few things are more important to me than my name and reputation. This might call that into question for some, which has me heartbroken," Ninkovich told ESPN. "I don't want to cut any corners. I want to do things the right way, with high integrity, and that's what I have always wanted to stand for."
>"Any supplement I've ever used was bought at a store. I was unaware something I bought had a substance in it that would give me a positive test because it wasn't listed [as an ingredient]," he told ESPN.
>"One thing I have learned is that if a supplement is not NSF certified there are no regulations that ensure that what is on the label is 100 percent accurate. That is a hard lesson for me to learn at this stage in my career, but I take responsibility for it. It's a mistake I made and it hurts that I won't be there for my teammates."
And for those asking who will replace him:
>The Patriots project to start veteran Chris Long, who signed with the Patriots after spending the first eight years of his career with the Rams, in his place. Jabaal Sheard is the other starter, with Shea McClellin (5th year) and second-year players Trey Flowers, Geneo Grissom and Rufus Johnson rounding out the depth chart.
Edited to add further information:
According to Jeff Howe, per this tweet, the failed test was from mid-summer, seeming that it would have been prior to his injury.
Teicher is the fucking worst. He's good for click bait and nothing else. Terez Paylor and BJ Kissel are the only Chiefs beat reporters to listen to. When we signed Nick Foles he heavily implied that it was because the team was unhappy with Smith and wanted to bring in competition for the starting job.

Dude has mental health issues. He thanked his psychiatrist in one of the most off the wall interviews I've ever heard after winning the 'ship with LA.
His intensity spills over, sometimes into insanity. That said, you are what you do and he's done some heinous shit, so be unmoved if you are.
There was an in-depth profile about him in ESPN Magazine last year, and yeah, he's fascinating... he really sounds like he's somewhere on the autistic spectrum. He's like a kid who's just excited to be around football.
115 plays, Northwestern vs Auburn, January 1, 2010
?? EDG is considered top 2 to win it.
Edit : Gonna link one of the Power rankings : Here
Every power ranking looked like this. i know they aren't considered top 2 anymore
>For almost the past year, Tebow has been training in Arizona and Los Angeles to hone his play as a professional batter and outfielder in a sport he has not played on a full-time basis since he was in high school in 2005.
>Tebow was an All-State baseball player in Florida and hit .494 as a junior.
>All 30 Major League Baseball teams will be invited to Tebow's workout at the end of the month, an event he has been preparing for over the past year. Those who have seen Tebow hit have been surprised he picked up the sport so quickly after not playing it since he graduated high school in 2005.
DJ Gallo is such a fantastic sports satirist. I started loving his writing way back in 2006 with his breakdown of the Madden 07 ratings. Great things like...
>98 -- The awareness rating for Ray Lewis. That strikes me as a bit high for a guy who for the longest time couldn't remember anything about a certain evening in Atlanta a few years ago, don't you agree?
>90 -- Brett Favre's morale rating. While I disagree a bit with Ray Lewis' attributes, this one is right on. Playing against Brett Favre is absolutely fantastic for a team's morale.
If you're looking for a good bathroom book, I suggest checking out his View From the Upper Deck. Bunch of short sports satire stories that are well consumed in short 5 minute sittings. Stories like "Lack of Yellow Card Miraculously Heals Soccer Players Broken Leg" and "NASCAR Race Ends Tragically Without a Single Crash".
I think the allure of it is because ESPN already made a pretty sick mock up logo for it.
Plus it would be completely different in terms of color scheme. Which has not been seen since...San Jose.
Gore, from this article in 2015 explaining why he chose the Colts over the Eagles
>"Every year with Andrew Luck being the quarterback, they've taken a step in the playoffs," Gore said. "So I feel like before I leave this game I want to win a championship and I think this team is the best situation for me to get there."
By no means are the Eagles poised for a championship run now, nor were they at the time of Gore's decision, but damn, ya gotta feel for the guy. Went to an up and coming Colts team and now they're the team that "hops on their opponent's knee and breaks themselves"
Never fun? I don't think guys that are 'never fun' have teammates plotting revenge pranks on them.
>“Peyton and Decker, they got me real well last night,” Franklin told reporters in Denver on Wednesday. “I’m definitely looking forward to revenge at this point. I wasn’t really paying attention to it. That was stupid on my behalf, but like I said I’m looking forward to getting those guys back. I think a lot of guys are going to jump at that opportunity. So we’ve just got to plan something out real well for him and get him when it counts.”
WR Cody Lattimer also talks about this topic.
>"Outside of football he's a fun guy. When he's in football mode, he's in football mode. He's a businessman. He has his business side and he has his fun side."
Also, it's hard to criticize Peyton for allegedly getting guys worked up and making mental mistakes considering he's also making them pro bowl receivers on one of the best offenses in the league. If Manning was easy on his guys I don't think they're catching 55 TDs in a year.
Couldn't agree more. His accomplishments in athletics are fucking meaningless in contrast to the absolute devastation he allowed to continue for years and years. Fuck Paterno and his legacy. The man was a piece of shit.
Edit: good article by ESPN.com on the extent of the situation -- http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/17015181/testimony-unsealed-documents-alleges-joe-paterno-knew-jerry-sandusky-abuse-1976
Not only did Paterno fully know what was going on, but so did numerous assistant coaches, as well. They all are guilty of allowing this to happen in order to continue their "football legacy". It is a fucking hideous act and Penn State should be ashamed to even consider honoring Paterno.
Good thing Landry is the 2nd receiver with yards after catch, probably would be 1st if Marvin didnt have his huge game
Kind of weird, but watch the ESPN video of Field Yates talking about Terelle Pryor, posted on Tuesday Sept. 27, at 12:53PM. About 34 seconds into the video, he slips up and says: "with no more Josh Gord... No Josh Gordon for another week". I wonder if they knew this ahead of time?
Link to the video. 34 seconds in, if no ad plays before the video.
They aren't biased, but they are based on an oversimplified model that's better applied to two-person competitive games (like chess where the competitor doesn't meaningfully change between games). With team sports ELO can't factor in very important details like personnel changes, injuries, and less important games (e.g., week 17 games after securing playoff seed).
The Pats losing a game with an injured third-string rookie QB halved our SB odds (12% to 6%) in the ELO model. Meanwhile, according to Vegas the Pats started week 1 with 6:1 odds to win the superbowl and after four games improved to 4:1 odds as going 3-1 was better than expected with their backup QBs.
Interesting that Mata mentions Forg1ven. In a recent interview Forg1ven said that they played against RNG a few times and that Uzi is kinda same to him. So h2k botlane probably did good against RNG botlane I guess
38 under par. 11 holes in one.
On the day that he died, ESPN had a headline on their main page captioned "World's Greatest Golfer Dies" (which linked, I think to this obit).
They're paying the school rent, which will go towards the 100 million dollars or so in renovations that we're required to make to the stadium
I'm fairly certain there are some 4 games in 5 night stretches during regular seasons too. It has to be so brutal on the players.

Way I heard it was lebron in 2004 was an entitled prig who was almost cut/didn't make the team. Was more about the brand than the work and didn't know how to defend p&r
Came from a Woj article (caution)
However the same carried over to 2006 when other reports had 3 out of 4 coaches vote to make LBJ the first cut (to not make the team) due to his attitude. Colangelo overrode them.
2006 was the nadir for US hoops.
Edit: Early LBJ had folks criticise Gilbert for enabling him and his entourage. Wonder why you would think it was different in USA basketball in his first 3 years.
By 2008, the narrative was that LeBron had reached some maturity and could see the kind of work and seriousness Kobe put in. He put the work in on offense and defense...
Teddy threw 4 first quarter TDs in 2015 and 3 in 2014 for a total of 7 in his career.
Carr threw 0 so far this year, but 4 last year and 3 in 2014.
I guess that's a little significant. 7 to 3.
This is a bit from an article about the owners voting on the Rams move.
"Going into the meeting, most believed Carson had more votes. But one moment, many would later recall, seemed to halt its momentum. Michael Bidwill, president of the Cardinals and a Carson supporter, argued that the NFL doesn't exist just to make rich owners richer. Owners needed to consider what would be best for the league, and ...
Jones cut him off: "When you guys moved the team from St. Louis to Phoenix -- it wasn't about the money?"
As Bidwill tried to answer, Jones moved in for the kill: "You did it for the money."
Here's the full article
> In theory, they should trade him now; he's coming off a monster healthy season, and he has two years left on his contract -- happy things that might entice teams spooked by his past foot injuries. He's 28, so he won't be around when the Nets are relevant. Sean Marks, Brooklyn's new GM, has already shown in swapping Thad Young for the No. 20 pick that he will sell a little low on veterans to replenish Brooklyn's raided draft pick cupboard.
> On the flip side, remove Lopez's $22 million salary for next season, and the Nets could enter free agency $50 million below the salary floor. Without much to sell beyond the city, will the Nets be able to spend on anyone better than Lopez?
Penn State's Joey Julius would like a word with you. Granted, he is a 275 pound kicker but still... getting turfed by the kicker is embarrassing. So much so that other teams' special teams (Maryland and Minnesota) have had players ejected two weeks straight going after him.
Yeah, he got asked about it and said it was the right call even after review. When the person asking pressed the question, the ref said "it's 2016 dude."
Surely this salty Lions fan must be embellishing? No, he literally fucking said that. He also said there should be a horse collar? Guy is a fucking idiot.
But hey, it's okay. The hail mary "was an exciting play and I'm glad I had a good perspective of it."
For those who don't know, Troymaine Pope is a UDFA who didn't even make our rookie minicamp. He was literally added to the roster as a Camp Body and has balled out of control ever since.
You see, we had several injuries to our drafted RBs and we desperately needed someone to hand the ball off to. So we called up some random undersized FCS RB. And that fucker has fought tooth and nail for a spot.
You can read more here.
The corked bat happened once, and it was in all likelihood an honest mistake on his part.
"But [Sosa] says it was an honest mistake, that he grabbed the wrong bat. He admits the bat is his, but that he uses it for batting practice, occasionally, just to excite the fans with long and deep 450-foot blasts.
All of Sosa's bats are confiscated by security personnel and turned over to Major League Baseball. Seventy-six bats are impounded. Each one is checked for cork by baseball officials the following day. All are found to be clean.
All five of Sosa's bats in the Hall of Fame are tested, including the one in which he hit his 500th home run earlier in the 2003 season, on April 4. The bats were checked with X-rays and CT scans. All the bats are found to be untainted."
Doesn't excuse the incident, but don't paint it as he was using a corked bat for years along with steroid use
This past year has seen Mizzou rampaged by SJWs for every pet peeve in the spectrum.
Somebody saw a swastika made of poo (but no evidence it existed at all), someone said they heard a white kid in a truck yell nigger somewhere in Columbia, and BLM decided to hijack the Orlando vigils.
Administration took the SJWs side, creating "Safe Spaces", the football team refused to play.
Anyway, the media claimed it was some great victory because it's out of touch, and it turns out it will ruin the school.
Good job concern trolls.
>He said that around 6 a.m. Sunday, Lochte, along with Conger, Bentz and Jimmy Feigen, stopped at a gas station in Barra da Tijuca, a suburb of Rio where many Olympic venues are located. One of the swimmers tried to open the door of an outside bathroom. It was locked.
>A few of the swimmers then pushed on the door and broke it. A security guard appeared and confronted them, the official said. The guard was armed with a pistol, the official said, but he never took it out or pointed it at the swimmers.
>According to the official, the gas station manager then arrived. Using a customer to translate, the manager asked the swimmers to pay for the broken door. After a discussion, they paid him an unknown amount of money and left.
Basketball players in particular. They also die very young if not caught early. See /u/partygoat 's post above, prime example of what you're talking about. Fortunately the doctors caught it early, unfortunately he was forced to stop playing basketball.
It happened in the first quarter and they were already down 7.
They didn't even manage to score until the second half when Oklahoma had a 26 point lead. Kansas State also lost 29 yards on this drive, which I assume includes the safety, but still, that's an absurd amount of yards to lose in 4 plays.
How does no one remember that we were thiiiiiiis close to getting past the Even Year Bullshit in 2012?

Sooooo, yeah, there's no reason that the Tennessee players shouldn't be allowed to wear them.

1) He's done well the last 3 games without All-Pro tackle Marshall Yanda and first-round pick G/T Ronnie Stanley. They should be expected back soon-ish.
2) His playoff schedule isn't the best: Pats, Eagles, Steelers.
3) He's had a relatively easy schedule so far though with sub-par run defenses. 5/6 teams he has faced are at the bottom half of the league in terms of rushing yards allowed - source
4) This next game will say a lot about his ROS worth before his back next week particularly if Flacco is out. If he does well against the Jets on Sunday, I think he could vouch well for that high-tier RB2 status with an RB3 floor.
tl;dr next game will determine if he is of RB2 status
this already happened with Jordan, just won a three peat, including just having a finals series of 41ppg, 8.5rpg, 6.3apg at 29 years old so had plenty left, then his father died so he retired to play baseball

"I couldn't believe my ears," Pippen later tells the media. He calls Jordan. "It's true," MJ tells him. "I'm gone." Pippen tries desperately to talk him out of it. There's no way. Jordan says he has no choice but to step away, that it's time to move"

It's really just a bunch of bullshit to be honest. This is just a CYA policy the NFL instituted to avoid lawsuits. I would typically go through a couple of helmets every season in college. There's no reason players can't have more than one helmet, I'm sure many of them do. You don't want a crack in it that can ruin the integrity of the helmet and those aren't too hard to get. Hell, didn't the Broncos fullback break a couple of facemasks on opening night? I wouldn't be surprised if there were a few cracked helmets in that game as well.
The NFL does not want to be forcing players to wear particular helmets in case someone gets injured. It's really about avoiding legal troubles that may come from that. The current painting process uses a very hard coating that takes multiple days to cure so they can't just repaint all of the helmets, especially since many players need them for practice as well.

Apparently this never should have happened.
> With four seconds remaining, Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph threw an incomplete pass to the left sideline to run the final seconds off the clock for what seemed to be a 27-24 victory for the Cowboys (1-1). However, no receivers ran a route, thus resulting in an intentional grounding penalty on fourth down.
> "There's a rule that says that the game cannot end on an accepted live ball foul. That's the rule. There's an exception to the rule that says if enforcement of the foul involves a loss of down, then that brings the game to an end," O'Dey told a pool reporter.
> "So in that situation, we've had the opportunity to run it back through our hierarchy, which includes the national rules editor, and he confirmed that should have been a loss of down and the end of the game at that point, so that extension should not have happened."
I think you mean six players, not the whole team. Your own link states that. Also, the players health was put in jeopardy by listening to that quack they thought was a doctor. Dr. Shortt ignored medical knowledge and prescribed things he shouldn't have.
I"d "love" to see the run support per game for each pitcher individually and combined. I'm guessing around 2.5 RS/G.
Edit: Of course Harvey had the second worst run support in the majors (min. 80 IP), as is tradition. Can Harvey just consume Drew Hutchison's soul and be blessed with good run support without shitty pitching side effects?
Tanaka and Maeda actually knew each other as middle school kids but have never started against one another as pitchers.
Ok, the Cubs definitely have some bandwagon fans (who doesn't after two seasons like this?) But to say "most" is wholly disingenuous. In 2012, a year in which the Cubs lost 101 games, the Cubs were 9th in home attendance and 7th in Overall attendance. A lot of us have been here a long time.
Hope Solo is kind of the worst.
From reports of abuse
To her and her boyfriend getting drunk and taking the USA team van
She's basically the Cincinnati Bengals of Women's soccer.
And if we're calling out lack of sportsmanship, the glove thing at the end of the game was a little bush league.
I don't really much care what she has to say.
It's no longer required due to a rule change. The league conveniently changed the rule when the Patriots signed Kyle Brady, which would have required Tom Brady to wear "T.Brady" and cause a lot of people to suddenly have outdated jerseys.
Last Week Ejection vs Minnesota for those that did not see it (like myself)
> they struggle against the worst team in the Pac 12
Would it blow your mind if, by at least one metric, Colorado was actually ranked higher than Clemson?
> This time, however, Texas was aware of the situation and Dylan Haines picked up the loose ball in the end zone, which should have resulted in a touchback for the Longhorns, thus giving Texas an opportunity to tie the game late in the fourth quarter.
It's pretty clear Haines himself was NOT aware that it was a live ball. He handed the ball directly to the ref which would in fact not be a touchback but rather a fumble. In order for that to have been a touchback Haines would have had to take a knee. This is exactly the reason for the "immediate recovery" rule. All players believed the ball to be dead and Haines picking the ball up was completely incidental.

Ummm, ever wonder why we call y'all snitches?
Phil Ratted us out to the NCAA about the albert means scandal, despite Tennessee actively recruiting him as well. When he didn't get him, he "assisted" the NCAA on finding proof that we paid someone to get Albert Means.
He's a fat salty fuck, that we hate with a passion. The fact that he beat us so many years in a row just made it worse. Until Saban came along.
As far as I can tell, in any sport - baseball, basketball, football, whatever - if you aren't winning you better pray to God that you have the most dedicated fan-base or people will neither watch, nor show up to the game.
For example, the Cubs have been awful for longer than most people have been alive; yet, even I will begrudgingly admit that (excluding recent band-wagoners) they have an amazingly dedicated fan-base which quite literally carried them through 100 years of poor performance. The Cardinals have that same base of fans, and combine it (thankfully) with more recent success.
The Rams, having moved to what is, effectively, a new market and continuing to play poorly might be doomed. Not to failure or bankruptcy or re-location but to a fate far worse - obscurity.
Finally, I wanna mention that such poor ratings especially hurt the players. In such a make-it-or-break-it sport where the average career is 3.3 years, they may play their entire career before a team can "rebuild" (assuming the owner even wants to rebuild) and, more than likely (78% of players), go broke shortly (3 years) after leaving the game.
I will gladly say "Fuck Stan Kroenke" for years to come, and to see his dickish move begin to blow up in his face brings me great joy; but I pity the fate of the individual player who he has greatly hurt in his ill-thought quest to have his epitaph read: "rich asshole".
This is an interesting article on how injuries that cursed the start of Steph Curry's NBA career turned into his greatest blessing
He led with his mask. That's a big no-no in today's NFL.
Personally I didn't think it's that terrible either because the play was clearly breaking down, but I still get why he was flagged and fined.
Be grateful, our starting guard got fined, flagged, <em>and</em> concussed by a retarded ass cheap shot on one of your guys.
Jackie MacMullan wrote a great article about this game.
>"This was the toughest game I've ever had to play," Pierce conceded. "Tougher than any championship, tougher than any Game 7."
The best example was after the lockout, there was a very short preseason. Belichick switched his defense from the 3-4 he used for 20+ years and was famous for to a 4-3, as there wasn't enough practice time to do it right.
Very few coaches would be so willing to abandon their "system" like that.
> He quite literally called the co-founder a motherfucker on SI
They recorded that SI on Sep. 9th, Monte was told he wouldn't be invited to worlds on Aug.9 accoridng to the ESPN article, so he was long out at that point. Before he got completely fucked by Riot by the REN thing and not being invited to the events, he never made any crazy insulting remarks like that he just gave constructive criticism.
