In the years since Brett Favre moved on from Green Bay and eventually retired (with pit stops in New York and Minnesota), it’s been discovered that the relationship between the legendary quarterback and his successor, Aaron Rodgers, was bristly at best.
That’s surely why the NFL put the two former MVPs together to present the AP Comeback Player of the Year award at the NFL Honors...
No athlete has been more revered in South Florida than Dan Marino.
The former Miami Dolphins quarterback has been admired for his Hall of Fame playing career and for his off-field accomplishments, which include creating a foundation to help autistic children and their families.

And at least 10 teams -- including the Brooklyn Nets -- are already committed to firing Billy Hunter.
The writers for the NFL Awards show did a fantastic job on Saturday night.

This entire Billy Hunter story is not a good look for the NBA.
If you missed it, Hunter and the NBA Players Association was investigated, and it was revealed that Hunter’s contract was never properly approved. As executive director of the NBPA, this is a bit of a problem.

NBPA counsel Ron Klempner has been made interim executive director in Billy Hunter's absence.
