Erin Andrews response to David Pollack sexist comments: LAME

Fox Sports personality Erin Andrews really should have hit ESPN analyst David Pollack much harder in response to his sexist remark regarding women not belonging on the college football playoff selection committee.

F.

Josh Freeman continues the curse of Jersey #5

Manchester United: Welcome Adnan Januzaj

Manchester United must be hoping that their most difficult phase of the season is over.

The biggest worry for United over the past couple of weeks has been the frailties...
