My Sports Rumors:
Last night there was a firestorm set off around America when George Zimmerman was found not guilty. People all over the country took to social media and let their feelings be known. Most of these feelings were people’s instant reactions and made them look like idiots when they actually aren’t (i.e. Victor Cruz). One athlete bit his tongue though and kept his personal opinion to himself. Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade did make a statement but decided to let it all sink in before adding his personal opinion.
Wow!!! Stunned!!! Saddened as a father!!! Some1 make sense of this verdict for me right now please!!! Don't worry I'll wait…

Personally, I applaud Dwyane Wade for these tweets. He said what most of America was and that’s stunned by the decision. He was smart though and didn’t make the knee jerk reaction of saying what’s on his mind before thinking. To me this makes his tweets the best of any athlete of the night, he kept his cool and let the world know that he cared in a dignified manner.
I’d love to hear Wade’s opinion on the matter once the verdict has sunk in and he’s had time to think about it. Even if he feels the rage most felt last night it will at least be an articulated opinion, not a raging rant.

Prior to coming across this video, I never heard of porn star Jessie Rogers but if she hates the Miami Heat, it worthy of a post on this fair website.
In connection with the fine folks over at Daily Snark, Jessie lays out the six big reasons that you can still hate on the Miami Heat after they won back-to-back NBA titles:
Thanks for the reasons, Jessie!

Miami Heat: Draft Grade
By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/HoopStuff….
Pick 50: James Ennis- SG- Long Beach State
- It seemed a little strange that the Heat would trade into the late second round to draft a player that no one would expect to make the roster, but Ennis is a big time scorer, a solid three point shooter and with his athletic talents, he could be a big time defender...

When the "not guilty" verdict in the Trayvon Martin case was announced Saturday night, dozens of pro athletes took to Twitter to share their shock, anger, sadness and wishes for peace in the aftermath.
That is, unless they were among the richest athletes in sports. From them there was an overwhelming silence.

I know this is a very controversial topic and we’re all here to argue, but if we’re going to have this debate, we’re going to have to do it right. Let's lay down some ground rules before we get to the topic:
