Man United transfer rumors: Louis Van Gaal, Moyes, Lallana, Strootman

Today, the biggest story not only at Old Trafford, but in the Premier League overall, is the inevitable sacking of David Moyes. If Moyes gets called into any meetings with Ed Woodward, or the Board. Or if his phone rings and it’s them, I’m sure Moyes would be feeling/thinking something along these lines: Don’t speak I know just what you’re saying So please stop explaining...

Man United to sack David Moyes today, reportedly

By now it seems inevitable that David Moyes will be ousted at Old Trafford. Someone at Manchester United leaked the story, because everyone had it, and his dismissal should be made official sometime today. Interesting way for United to drop the axe, firing him through the media one day before they officially do it themselves. David Moyes will get one year’s compensation (£10m...

The first Lauren Moyes parody account is extremely popular on social media, accruing close to 20,000 Twitter followers in just a couple months; with only 62 tweets...

Should the 49ers stay committed to Colin Kaepernick?

I love to hear regular people talk about how pro athletes should be fired for doing dumb things. The common phase I hear when an athlete screws up is, “if I did that in my job, I would get fired immediately, so player X should be dismissed also.” This logic does not fly with me even though I do hate to see pro athletes get away with some egregious behaviors. The fact is, pro...

David Moyes getting sacked by United rumors starting up again

Another pathetic performance by Manchester United yesterday in a season of huge disappointments. Manager David Moyes again looked clueless and incapable of leadership as his old club, Everton, beat the Reds for just the third time in 19 years. This completed a season sweep for the Toffees over the Red Devils, and it was absolutely the worst possible scenario for David Moyes. It...

“With Blake Sims, there are probably some things that he can do as a quarterback that we really don’t feature in this game,” Alabama Coach Nick Saban said after the A-Day spring scrimmage. “For him to be an effective player at his position, in fairness to him, it’s probably good for us to do things like that. We really don’t feature our skill guys very much.” So don’t...

Jeff Van Gundy: Chicago is where back-up point guards go to get paid

Jeff Van Gundy raised a very salient point the other day. As Derrick Rose misses yet another NBA postseason, I guess he can take solace in the fact that he’s indirectly and inadvertently helped journeyman point guards find their way in this league. Because he’s injured so much, and misses all that time, there’s a tremendous opportunity for mediocre ones to get starter minutes...
