  • Kaepernick’s visit to meet Rikers inmates irks correction officers

    The city allowed Colin Kaepernick to make a surprise visit to Rikers Island Tuesday to meet with inmates — enraging correction officers who feel the stunt will only endanger them. The former San Francisco 49ers star spoke to groups of inmates during two 45 minute sessions at the jail’s George Motchan Detention Center Tuesday morning where he pontificated on social justice issues and talked about his decision to kneel during the national anthem, sparking nationwide outrage. “That’s crazy to me to have a person like Colin Kaepernick in prison talking about police brutality,” said an officer who attended the event....
  • Ticket Prices Collapse as NFL Shovels Money at Commissioner Roger Goodell

    Roger Goodell has been doing such a great job as NFL commissioner that the league extended his contract another 5 years. He could pull in $40 million per year. Meanwhile, this is what his refusal to demand that players refrain from theatrical displays of disrespect during the national anthem is doing to ticket sales: [T]ickets for Sunday’s matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Indianapolis Colts sold for as little as $2. (Yes, you read that right.) Even the stadium’s best seats — in the lower part of the stadium near the 50-yard-line — were selling for just $29. Tickets at...

    RUSH: Man, oh, man, what a strategy the Democrats seem to have assembled here, folks.

    A former Pittsburgh Steeler is among three analysts suspended Monday night by the NFL Network over sexual harassment allegations. Ike Taylor was named in a lawsuit by a former NFL Network wardrobe stylist. The woman claims in the lawsuit that Taylor sent her lewd pictures of himself in the shower. Former players turned analysts Marshall Faulk and Heath Evans have also been named in the lawsuit. They have also been suspended by the NFL Network.

    NFL Network has suspended the analysts Marshall Faulk, Heath Evans and Ike Taylor “pending an investigation” into allegations of sexual harassment and assault, the network announced late Monday. The allegations were made in a lawsuit by a former NFL Network employee, Jami Cantor, who sued NFL Enterprises, the league’s media arm that operates the network, in Los Angeles Superior Court in October, alleging age and sex discrimination, sexual harassment and hostile work environment, and wrongful termination, among other complaints. Eric Weinberger, the president of the Bill Simmons Media Group and a former NFL Network executive, was suspended by the media...

    President Trump has lambasted the NFL more than 20 times for players’ “Total Disrespect of Our Great Country.” Ratings are down for NFL games and Trump figures it’s because some players aren’t standing, hand over heart, and mouthing the words to the national anthem. Trump may have made some political hay out of all this, but one only has to follow the money to learn the real reason pro football ratings are down — competition from college football. The fact is, “Their product isn’t very good these days,” Nick Bogdanovich told the Las Vegas Sun. He is the chief oddsmaker...

    The NFL's two-year TV downturn is taking a bite out of broadcast TV partners like Fox Sports that fork over billions for rights to live games. Fox Sports staffers in Los Angeles are bracing for a wave of possible budget cutbacks due to disappointing NFL advertising sales this season, sources tell Sporting News. Another important factor: With Team USA eliminated from the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, Fox can't count on soccer ad dollars next year to get well from an ad standpoint.

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    Roy Jones decided it would be smart for him to bring down a former governor of Massachusetts and a sitting senator from New Jersey to help him win a statewide race in Alabama. This does not strike me as a winning strategy for some reason. Go figure. But Jones has been pretty much tone deaf throughout this race, running essentially the same campaign strategy that Democrat Wendy Davis ran in the 2014 Texas gubernatorial race against Republican Greg Abbott. Davis, if you remember, ran a campaign based on abortion-on-demand, open borders and government control of everything, and brought in a...

    Josh McCown knew right away. He knew he was done. Definitely for the rest of Sunday’s game. Likely for the rest of this season. And possibly for his career, which has spanned more than 15 years and eight different teams. That’s why, when McCown emerged from the trainer’s room in the bowels of Sports Authority Field at Mile High after breaking is left hand late in the third quarter of the Jets’ 23-0 loss to the Broncos, his eyes already were red from the burning of tears.

    The Seahawks had several chances late in Sunday's game to beat the Jaguars in Jacksonville but their fate was sealed after Russell Wilson failed to convert on fourth down with just over two minutes to go. And that's when things got interesting. With Seattle out of timeouts and 54 seconds remaining, Jacksonville lined up in the victory formation to seal their 30-24 lead. On the play, defensive lineman Michael Bennett was rightly penalized for unnecessary roughness and teammate Sheldon Richardson was ejected for starting a brawl. Not to be outdone, a snap later, defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson was ejected for...

    When the Eagles visited the Chargers of Los Angeles — previously of San Diego – earlier this season, it was essentially a home game for Philadelphia. Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers said the 26-24 loss to the Birds was "not a home game" because of the overwhelming green majority in the stands. Apparently, FOX is cognizant of this likely happening when the Rams of Los Angeles — previously of St. Louis – play the Eagles on Sunday (barring a wildfire postponement). FOX is doubling down on this game, which features two NFC contenders and fits in the semi-primetime slot of 4:25...

    The Wrap ^ | December 9, 2017 | Sean Burch
    Los Angeles gets an unwarranted rap as a bad sports town, and Fox Sports isn’t helping LA fans fight that label. Fox posted a listing on the casting site projectcasting.com for “actors, models, and talent” to play Rams fans on its Sunday NFL pre-game show. With the Rams facing off against the Philadelphia Eagles in a match-up of two of the league’s best teams, you wouldn’t think it’d be necessary, but alas. “We’re looking for LA’s biggest NFL fans to be part of #NFLSunday’s Los Angeles Rams vs. Philadelphia Eagles Pre Game Show!” said the ad. “Come out, bring your...

    New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady opened his Saturday news conference by apologizing for lashing out at offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels on the sideline last Sunday, saying it had been bothering him all week. "I want to apologize to Josh for last week in Buffalo. I know our coaches work really hard, and they are responsible for putting us in a great position to succeed. I just want to get that off my chest," Brady said in opening remarks, before he answered any questions. When Brady was asked if those types of outbursts were part of the emotion of football,...

    In addition to protesting the National Anthem, the National Football League is now funding left-wing advocacy groups, including Dream Corps, a George Soros organization, led by a former Obama advisor, Van Jones. Jones states that he is a communist and two of the goals of Dream Corps is to advocate for the “Clean Power Plan” and open borders. The NFL recently agreed to pay $73 million over seven years to various groups that the NFL Players Coalition supports. The coalition was created in 2016 as a way to “respond to perceived institutional bias among law enforcement agencies.” Its members are...

    If you've ever wanted to go to an NFL game and you have five dollars in your pocket, then this is the perfect week to do it. As of Thursday afternoon, there are actual NFL tickets that are selling on the secondary market for under five dollars. Of course, like all good deals, these tickets do come with a catch: You need to live near Buffalo, have a high tolerance for cold weather and be willing to sit through three hours of a Colts-Bills game. A beer at the game would literally cost more than twice the price of your...
