This is happening far too often and there has to be a better way of policing it.
Here are the details via Chicago Sun Times
A man is in critical condition after he was beaten up during a tailgate party in a McCormick Place parking lot before Sunday’s Chicago Bears game.

Rondo hinted at such a prognosis a few weeks back.
Celtics coach Brad Stevens told the media that Rajon Rondo could be ready to go for the Celtics season opener after getting a reevaluation of his broken hand.

Suspended Georgia running back Todd Gurley was seen rocking a T-Shirt that says “Free Gurley” on the front.
I’m not even mad at Gurley for this shirt. The case against him is very shady and in my opinion athletes should be able to profit off their name while in school. Going to be interesting to see if the NCAA makes a ruling while Georgia is on their bye week or if they will...
While head injuries and their profound effect on former players have generated headlines and a steady stream of litigation for the National Football League in recent years, a new crisis emerged in 2014 centering on domestic violence.

You are on your laptop, phone, tablet & etc. You are 100s or 1000s of miles of the person you are communicating with. You are anonymous, unknown and just a blip on the radar. You can say whatever you want with little to no consequence. That is how you become an internet thug or keyboard gangster.
Think of all the thoughts that float around in your head during the...
LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers took on the Chicago Bulls last night in a pre-season game in Columbus at THE Ohio State University, and understandably fans wanted to recognize LeBron’s return to Ohio by giving him a standing ovation.

This is so funny to me.

A concerned customer of the Chili’s on Lithia Pinecrest Road in Valrico discovered the publicly posted pictures of...
There is a good chance he will be reinstated, but I doubt any team this year picks him up unless there is a injury and they are just in desperate need of a running back.
According to ESPN, his appeal will be heard on November 5th-6th. The main issue was why he was punished twice even though he told the truth to the NFL.
If people are going to dress up in Ebola costumes you knew they were going to do Ray Rice. It has already started and I expect to see more variations as we get closer to Halloween.

There are a lot of ways to help your marketability, add a little edge to your personality and bring some sizzle to your life, but I am 100% sure the one way you don’t want that to happened is by being accused of rape.
Live TV can be hard and sometimes you can’t articulate exactly what you are trying to say. I know what Skip Bayless was trying to say, he just worded it horribly...

After suffering a loss during the European Youth Boxing Championship in Croatia, Croatian-born boxer Vido Loncar went absolutely ballistic, taking his frustration out on the referee. After delivering a devastating knock-out punch, Loncar continues to pound on the prone official until he is finally pulled away. The attack was so vicious and shocking that...
It is real simple.
If Khan wins impressively he likely will get the shot at Mayweather in Spring/Summer. If he loses well, let’s just say he better not lose.
“There are just little details that we are finishing but Khan and Alexander are going to fight,” De La Hoya told ESPN.com on Monday.
“Amir Khan looked good against my boy Collazo, but I have a feeling he wants to make...

During his weekly appearance on 105.3 The Fan’s New School With Shan & RJ, Jones said the Redskins should keep their nickname, because it is one of pride.
“I know that it’s not in any way meant to denigrate the Redskins, or the Washington team, or what it represents,” said Jones. “It’s like...
Week 7 is in the books and there were quite a few interesting narratives to take away. Peyton Manning is by far the greatest regular season QB of all time, and at his advanced age, looks better than ever. CJ Spiller must be cursed by the fantasy gods or something because the second he looks like he’s going to start getting the bulk of carries in Buffalo, he breaks a 53 yard run...
After LeBron James bolted from South Beach back to Cleveland, most people expected Chris Bosh to be the next member of the Big Three to make his way out of town.

After terms of Bosh’s deal with the...

It’s been an interesting two days for Kobe Bryant and ESPN. After a scathing piece by Henry Abbott claiming that no superstars want to play with Kobe and blaming the five-time Champion for all of the Lakers current woes.
Reading the article, much of what was written came off as more Abbott trying to bash Kobe than common sense, ignoring failed trades, coaching hires and lack of...
There’s a chance Aldon Smith could return to the 49ers early to help save their season because of good behavior.
According to Chris Mortensen via Pro Football Talk, the star pass rusher could have his nine game suspension reduced for behaving himself.
