    Hillary Clinton, appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Monday, said that rumors that she is in ill health are part of a “wacky strategy” against her. “Back in October, the National Enquirer said I would be dead in six months. So with every breath I take I feel like I have a new lease on life,” Clinton quipped to Kimmel, according to CNN and other reports. “I don’t know why they are saying this. I think on the one hand it is part of the wacky strategy — just say all these crazy things and maybe you can get some...

    ESPN’s Around the Horn has gone from one of the best, longest running panel shows the network has ever had, to an absolutely farcical flagship of left-wing lunacy. Yesterday, the panel at ATH lamented the fact that Cam Newton didn’t feel racially persecuted. Because, apparently, that’s bad. On Tuesday’s edition of the show, the panel discussed really silly comments made by the Packers’ Aaron Rodgers, who said the NFL’s culture makes players not speak publicly on cultural issues, out of fear of repercussions.

    NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is taking the power granted to him under article 46 of the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) and shoving it down the players’ throats. Goodell ruined the career of Saints DT Anthony Hargrove because the NFL failed to admit that they were wrong during BountyGate. Patriots QB Tom Brady will serve a four-game suspension this season because Goodell had to save face with the owners after spending millions on a tainted investigation. Now Goodell is trying to suspend the players named in the Al Jazeera America documentary on steroid use for an indefinite period of time.

    Laremy Tunsil's draft night will go down in infamy. Minutes before the draft began, a video was posted to Tunsil's Twitter account. It showed Tunsil in a gas mask smoking something, just before he removed the mask to reveal his face. The tweet was quickly taken down and Tunsil temporarily deleted his account, but attentive eyes quickly posted it to Twitter and YouTube. Tunsil's agent later told Ian Rapaport of NFL Network that his client's account had been hacked, but that it was his client in the clip. Rapoport also reported that the agent was calling teams to reassure them...

    From the investigator touting as truth the opposite of the testimony of the AFC Championship Game referee on the matter most salient to Deflategate to the league admitting ignorance of the Ideal Gas Law to Roger Goodell hearing the appeal on the fairness of the suspension Roger Goodell handed down, the NFL gives its fans myriad reasons to doubt its investigation into Tom Brady.
  • Drew Brees says NFL can't be trusted, thought Deflategate was 'dead issue'

    Tom Brady is suspended (again) for his role in Deflategate, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's guilty of what he's been accused of doing. What it means is that the Roger Goodell believes Brady is guilty and deserves a four-game suspension, and the judges who reinstated that suspension believe Goodell has the proper authority to do so. At least one player doesn't agree with that assessment. According to Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who spoke with Sports Illustrated's Maggie Gray, Goodell has too much power and the league shouldn't be trusted.
