Texans’ Arian Foster gives WORST. INTERVIEW. EVER.

Arian Foster of the Houston Texans is very good at running the football. He’s also exceptional at wasting the time of the media. You know I love to rip on the pointlessness of most press conferences. I’m very vocal in pointing out the worthlessness of 90% of athlete interviews. So I’ve seen and heard it all when it comes to sports cliches, bromides, platitudes, coachspeak...

Former Notre Dame star Brady Quinn begins next career as a broadcaster

The NFL career of Brady Quinn is no more. Although he never made an official retirement statement. The prepared statements released by his people on behalf of him today indicate that this decision to join Fox Sports means that he has hung up his cleats and now picked up a microphone. “Obviously, nothing compares to playing quarterback, but I am looking forward to this next career...

PHOTOS: Manchester United at the White House

Manchester United are in the midst of their summer tour in the United States. For the Red Devils, just as it is for all the Premier League teams out across the pond playing exhibition games, it’s all about the money. Yes, they get to work on their fitness for the upcoming season, evaluate players, try new formations and strategies, and certainly try to find a comfort zone and work...

VIDEO: Bears legend Gale Sayers thinks RBs today are nuts

You know kids these days…..Or “hey man, kids today.” That’s the impression I get when I watch this video of Chicago Bears legend Gale Sayers. That doesn’t mean he’s wrong though. I think the “Kansas Comet” is spot on. Sayers talks about how he only made $25,000 a year in his day, and he just can’t understand how NFL running backs these days are turning down $30...

Man United agree to send Marouane Fellaini to Napoli

Marouane Fellaini became emblematic of David Moyes era futility. As the one major 2013 summer transfer window signing post Sir Alex Ferguson, Fellaini should have absorbed some, or at least more of that angst against the Manager that brought him there. Instead he receives about a fraction of the backlash that Moyes got. Perhaps soon we will see the same fate for Fellaini that we...

Unreal Liverpool Academy, Anfield tour for Gatorade contest winners

Liverpool is undoubtedly one of the globe’s biggest sports clubs and brands. They’re HUGE! Currently, The Reds are out on tour making a lot of money and expanding their brand playing in preseason friendlies in front of very large crowds in the United States. Brendan Rodgers, Daniel Sturridge, Raheem Sterling and company are increasing their presence in America. And during the...

How does Liverpool replace the scoring of Luis Suarez?

WIth the Loic Remy deal having fallen through, Liverpool badly need another scorer to accompany Daniel Sturridge this season. Sturridge and Luis Suarez really worked well together last year, and the departure of Suarez means Sturrdige will probably see his production decline in 2014-15. That is, unless he really makes tremendous strides in this offseason. So how does LFC adjust to...

Luis Suarez loses Poker sponsorship

Everyone who had watched the FIFA World Cup 2014 that was recently held in Brazil would have seen or at least known about the biting incident that took place in the group match between Uruguay and Italy. Luis Suarez, the famed forward striker of the Uruguayan national team, had bit Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini with his front teeth in the Italian penalty box when they were both...

VIDEO: This guy is very high on Trevor Siemian, Northwestern

Before he suffered his “lower body injury,” Northwestern QB Trevor Siemian was one of the best pure passers in the Big Ten. Then in midseason, his production slipped, and his ankle/foot etc slowed him down. His accuracy and efficiency declined. Siemian made a couple critical mistakes of staring down his primary receiver when near his own South end zone. And that was critical...

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: Former Washington WR Randle El previews ’14 Skins

Former Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins Wide Receiver Antwaan Randle El, the only WR ever to throw a touchdown pass in a Super Bowl actually, gave a speech tonight at an Indiana University booster/alumni event. It was a private event held at Joe’s on Weed Street in Chicago. At the event, I had an exclusive with Antwaan Randle El, where we talked Washington football team...

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...
