Man United transfer rumors: Hummels, Vermaelen, Borg, Cuadrado

It’s rather obvious that Louis van Gaal is frustrated that Ed Woodward hasn’t helped him acquire more players this summer transfer window. After we saw two new buys in Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw, we all expected more buys, but it just hasn’t happened. There is still no progress to report on Arturo Vidal. United has some holes to fill in the back line, but in the midfield...

Jay Cutler ready to thrive in year two under Trestman

Jay Cutler has plenty of talent. He has one of the strongest arms in the NFL and has thrown for 19 or more touchdowns in six of his eight NFL seasons. Cutler has only one playoff appearance in his career though with that coming in 2010 when the Chicago Bears captured the NFC North title. Cutler advanced to the NFC Conference Championship game but left early with an injury with many...

Louis van Gaal is looking to add more defenders to Man United

What a refreshing change it is to go from David Moyes to Louis van Gaal. Not just because it’s like going from steerage to first class in terms of talent and management ability, but also the media opportunities. Moyes only spoke in cliches and coachspeak. LVG actually says something at press conferences. As the recently appointed leader of Manchester United says, Old Trafford is...

Ex Skins WR Antwaan Randle El weighs in on team name controversy

You’ve heard a lot about the Washington football team name change debate. It’s been one of the dominating story-lines this NFL offseason. It really should have been changed a long time ago. This shouldn’t have to be all on Daniel Snyder. I’ll stop opining on the topic right there. I’ve written plenty on that topic already. How about someone who works for/used to work for...

EXCLUSIVE: Pittsburgh Steelers preview with Antwaan Randle El

I joke about how it seems the Steelers draft a linebacker in the early rounds every year. The past two years, it’s been true. At least in the first round. And I totally nailed that Jarvis Jones pick in my 2013 NFL Mock Draft. Of course, I only got three more picks in my that mock draft…but still….I bring this up because the Steelers once again drafted linebacker/defense first...

PHOTO: Man United home misspelled on D.C. Stadium scoreboard

It’s not so much the mistake, as it is the fact that nobody noticed and fixed it. What that says about the Washington Redskins staff, and their lack of awareness of the international game is an insult to Man United. It’s embarrassing. FedEx Field hosted Manchester United and Inter Milan on Tuesday night as the two clubs played an International Champions Cup match. Scoreboard...

Controversial shark hunting show returns, shark activists speak out

2001 was deemed summer of sharks; at least according to Time magazine. I know, younger readers are like “what’s a magazine?” There were four or five shark attacks that year which got a lot of press. That’s still very very low, and the percentage of sharks that have been know to attack man is miniscule. Only a handful of species of sharks have ever recorded an attack on a...

Will the Houston Rockets be stronger next season?

The Houston Rockets tried hard to land Carmelo Anthony this summer. And when they failed to do so, they turned their interest towards Chris Bosh. They didn’t manage to land Miami’s superstar either and on top of that, they saw the Dallas Mavericks “stealing” Chandler Parsons from them. Houston acted quickly and brought in Trevor Ariza to replace Parsons and now, the Rockets...

However, they also need a new striker and way to replace all that scoring. Even before the Suarez sale, Rodgers was buying. And doing some shopping at Southampton.
