    Linebacker David Harris has agreed to a two-year deal with the New England Patriots, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Wednesday. The New York Jets released Harris on June 6 after being unable to agree on a pay cut with the linebacker, who played 10 seasons for the team.

    Police in Seattle and St. Paul, Minnesota, made arrests after fighting broke out during a series of marches across the U.S. on Saturday against Sharia, a strict form of Islamic law, that were confronted by counter-protests. Police in Seattle used pepper spray and made several arrests for assault after a brief scuffle near the city's Occidental Square, according to ABC affiliate KOMO-TV.

    The stick to sports crowd usually targets players or media personalities. Now they may have to say it to an entire organization. This weekend the Patriots announced they will sponsor the 2017 Gay Bowl, which is a national championship flag football built with teams from the LGBT community. This is a statement of inclusion by the Patriots, but won't get to the level of other social stands such as Colin Kaepernick.

    ESPN continues to reap what it has sown because of its outspoken politics. The sports network got a brutal denial to a request to use a photo posted from the Boston Marathon on Monday. Facebook user Jack Blakely shared the exchange between ESPN and a Twitter user who posted a picture of a sign-holding man encouraging the runners at the annual event. {..snip..}
  • The New York Times Keeps Up Fake Tweet Comparing Trump & Obama Patriots Visit Despite Correction

    The New York Times has left up a false Tweet repudiated by the Patriots comparing team size between the New England Patriots White House visit under President Trump and former President Obama. On April the 19th, President Trump welcomed the Super Bowl 51 Champion New England Patriots to the White House.  The media watched this event carefully and not because they desired to watch the celebration but because Trump is a polarizing figure that they can't stand, and they were hoping as few players as possible would show up. In earnest, the New York Times went digging for pictures of...

    New York Post ^ | April 20, 2017 | Laura Italiano
    Now that Aaron Hernandez may have his conviction posthumously vacated — under an obscure Massachusetts legal doctrine — the Patriots could owe him money, a lawyer said Thursday. The Pats may actually be contractually obligated to pay Hernandez’s estate a $3.5 million bonus that was stopped hours after his murder arrest in 2013, attorney William Kennedy told the CBS affiliate in Boston. Kennedy represents the families of Safiro Furtado and Daniel de Abreu. Hernandez was acquitted in their shooting murders last week — only to commit suicide Wednesday in the Massachusetts prison cell where he was serving life without parole...

    The New York Times spread a pair of misleading photos of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots visiting the Trump and Obama White Houses, giving the false impression that significantly fewer Patriots players and staffers showed up for President Trump. The tweet quickly went viral, picking up over 44,000 retweets.

    Nice try, Gray Lady. You knew something like this would happen. The media not only can’t help themselves, they don’t want to help themselves. Their entire raison d’etre is to make Trump look bad, so they can’t just let a Super Bowl winner’s White House visit go by without at least trying to spin it negatively for Trump. What the New York Times didn’t count on in this instance was the team itself calling Bolshevik on it. But even after the Patriots did so, the Times still responded with a dishonest attempt to explain away its own fail:

    When you receiving a devastating fact-check by the Twitter account of an NFL football team, it might be time to delete your newspaper. That very thing occurred on Wednesday, when the New York Times tweeted out two photos comparing the number of Patriots coaches and players who attended in 2015, when Obama was president, versus how many attended on Wednesday with President Trump: "Patriots’ turnout for President Obama in 2015 vs. Patriots’ turnout for President Trump today: https://t.co/OxMEOqZonI pic.twitter.com/pLmJWhOw1j" — NYT Sports (@NYTSports) April 19, 2017 Clearly, the tweet makes the Obama White House visit look significantly better attended than...

    The New England Patriots are the professional sports team most closely associated with President Donald Trump, so it was fitting that they were the first championship team to visit Trump in the White House. Many of them visited on Wednesday, anyway. Many others skipped the trip. Perhaps the most awkward moment of a fairly routine speech by a president to a winning team – including owner Robert Kraft presenting Trump with a No. 45 Patriots jersey and coach Bill Belichick giving him a helmet – came when Trump mentioned receiver Danny Amendola for his fourth-down catch in Super Bowl LI. Amendola was...

    More details are emerging regarding the death of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, and they’re troubling. Via WBZ-TV, the phrase “John 3:16” was written on Hernandez’s forehead, and red marker was on his hands and feet. “John 3:16” is a popular Biblical verse, the 16th verse of the third chapter of the Gospel According to John: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

    Aaron Hernandez’s murder conviction is expected to be dismissed posthumously because of a legal rule called “abatement.” That would mean, legally speaking, Aaron Hernandez died an innocent man. Hernandez hanged himself in his prison cell and was found dead early Wednesday morning, the Massachusetts Department of Correction said. Hernandez had been serving a sentence of life in prison without parole after being convicted of the June 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd.

  • Hernandez found NOT GUILTY

    BOSTON (WHDH) - After six days of deliberations, the jury in the double-murder trial of Aaron Hernandez found him not guilty for the 2012 murders of two men in Boston’s South End. The former New England Patriots tight end was on trial for the killings of Safiro Furtado and Daniel de Abreu after one of them accidentally spilled a drink on him at the Cure Lounge. Throughout the trial, his lawyers argued that it was Hernandez’s friend, Alexander Bradley, who shot the men in a drug deal while parked at a stop light.

    Right after Trump was elected on November 9, Evans tweeted, “This is an embarrassing night for America. We’ve let a hatemonger lead our great nation. We’ve let a bully set our course. I’m devastated.” This tweet didn’t sit well with some of his Twitter followers. Granted, it’s an easy thing to say as a privileged white male. Because there are plenty of people oppressed and victimized and in jeopardy at this stage.”

    Pats owner Robert Kraft was actually happy to see the FBI -- because they forked over Tom Brady's missing Super Bowl jerseys!!! The Bureau posted this photo shot at Gillette Stadium Thursday ... where the QB's Super Bowl 49 and 51 jerseys were returned from Mexico. The recovery was the result of a massive international jersey hunt that led to a reporter in Mexico whom authorities say was the thief. Kraft said, "We want to thank the FBI, the Mexican authorities and the many different local agencies that were involved in the investigation and ultimate recovery of Tom Brady's Super...
