Gerald McCoy Calls Out Roger Goodell For Mixed Messages On Celebrating

There is a reason people often jokingly refer to the NFL as the “No Fun League.” That’s largely because the league penalizes players for celebrating on the field, and those flags often come with fines. However, all of these punishments seem rather hypocritical to Gerald McCoy. In an interview with the Tampa Bay Times, McCoy recalled draft day preparation, in which the commissioner...

Jon Jones’ key to mixed martial arts success? A boozy training regimen, apparently. The man known as “Bones” opened up Thursday on the “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast about how he used to get extremely drunk in the week leading up to his fights. Jones, who’s been in trouble several times over the years despite an impressive MMA résumé, currently is serving a one-year...

Someone Found J.J. Watt’s Old MySpace Page, And Photos Are Hilarious

J.J. Watt is a social media favorite. His Twitter account is filled with inspirational messages, and his Instagram page takes you into the life of the three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year. But another lesser-known social media platform of Watt’s was recently uncovered — his old MySpace page — and like every other person growing up in the early 2000s, his old pictures...

NFL SuperContest Picks: Week 13 Locks Include Raiders, Chiefs, Saints

If the NESN.com SuperContest squad of Mike Cole and Ricky Doyle were an NFL head coach, they’d be Jeff Fisher — painfully average and right around .500.

Von Miller played the role of Santa Claus for the entire AFC West. The Denver Broncos linebacker was in a giving mood recently and sent a bottle of wine and a note to every last player in the division, including practice squad players and those on injured reserve. If you’re keeping count, that’s almost 300 bottles of wine. Here’s what Miller’s note said, via the Denver Post’s...

Tom Brady States The Obvious: No One Like Rob Gronkowski ‘On The Street’

FOXBORO, Mass. — For the New England Patriots, it’s always next man up, not next man in. So, with Rob Gronkowski’s season likely over after back surgery to fix a herniated disc, players already on the Patriots’ roster must step up in an attempt to replace him. That’s partially because it’s early December, and the best available free agents are veteran tight ends Owen...

This Vince Wilfork, Jadeveon Clowney Jersey Swap Is A Sight To Behold

Vince Wilfork is the special kind of large man who makes other large men look small, and we have photographic proof. The Houston Texans had a little fun at their practice Friday when a few players decided to swap jerseys. Among the participants were Wilfork and defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who at 6-foot-6, 267 pounds is anything but petite. But not even Clowney could fill out...

Revis insists he has 'a lot' of football left, still loves game

Is Darrelle Revis finally calling it quits? That question has come to the forefront recently, as a recent report suggested the New York Jets cornerback is “done” and “doesn’t want to play anymore.” Revis is 31 years old, after all, and has under-performed all season for the 3-8 Jets. So, is this the last we’ll see of Revis? Quite the opposite, according to the man...

Dion Lewis zings LeGarrette Blount over eating fast food

It’s probably safe to say Dion Lewis eats a little healthier than fellow New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount. Lewis and Blount apparently were hanging out Thursday night, as Lewis’ Snapchat featured a photo of Blount chowing down on some Wendy’s. But Lewis made it even better by calling out his teammate’s choice to eat fast food. Dion Lewis is a savage...

Rasheed Wallace’s Doc Rivers Impression On Kevin Garnett’s Show Is Terrific

It seems everyone is making fun of Doc Rivers for his outburst earlier this week — even his former players. This time, it was Rasheed Wallace, who was a guest Thursday night on Kevin Garnett’s show, “Area 21.” Wallace and KG, who played under Rivers with the Boston Celtics, talked about how they would have handled Rivers during his sideline tantrum. The result included...

Colin Kaepernick’s San Jose Home For Sale At $2.89M; Is 49ers QB Leaving Town?

Colin Kaepernick is in the news again, but this time, it’s for a much less controversial reason. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback has put his San Jose, Calif., home on the market for a whopping $2.89 million. The news isn’t that surprising, as Kaepernick is scheduled to become a free agent following this season. Despite the 49ers currently sitting at a lowly 1-10 this season...

Alex Trebek Has Interesting Way Of Pronouncing Draymond Green’s Name

Draymond Green made an appearance on a $1,600 question in the “Also Found On a Car” category (that’ll make sense in a minute), and Trebek had a very interesting way of saying the Golden State...

MLB Rumors: Want To Acquire Chris Sale? Here’s What It Reportedly Will Take

The crop of MLB free-agent starting pitchers is almost impossibly weak, and a team like the Chicago White Sox — a team with two relative high-end starting pitchers — know that better than anyone.
