    Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow used a Tuesday press conference to urge Congress to make it harder for people to buy “those crazy guns.” Fox News quotes Burrow saying, “With everything that’s going on, if you’re not going to outlaw everything, you’ve gotta at least make it harder to get those crazy guns that everybody is using.”

    Another woman has filed a civil lawsuit against Deshaun Watson, raising the number of women who have accused the Cleveland Browns quarterback of inappropriate sexual conduct during massage sessions to 24. The lawsuit says the plaintiff massaged Watson twice. The first session, the lawsuit says, was cut short because "Watson had to leave abruptly after taking a phone call." The lawsuit says Watson scheduled a second massage a few days later, when the woman says that Watson exposed himself and masturbated and "offered no apology or explanation for his conduct." The lawsuit says the plaintiff "shortly thereafter quit massage therapy."...

    The Washington Commanders have fined defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio $100,000 following his comments earlier in the week that referred to the events of Jan. 6, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol as a "dustup" and compared that day to "riots, looting, burning" during protests in the summer of 2020. In a statement, Washington coach Ron Rivera said he met with Del Rio on Friday morning to express his disappointment in the coordinator's comments. "His comments do not reflect the organization's views and are extremely hurtful to our great community here in the DMV," Rivera said. "As we saw last night...

    Green Bay Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy has a monthly column on the team website where he answers questions from fans and shareholders. It generally appears to be softball questions like any fun events planned for the shareholders meeting and the Paul McCartney concert was awesome, but for some reason this month's edition also featured an absolutely wild letter from a shareholder named Marilyn. She does not waste time getting to her point. Via A question from Marilyn, a longtime Packer fan and shareholder: "Out of the 11 players drafted by the Packers in the 2022 NFL Draft...

    The Carolina Panthers have been silent about their unfinished headquarters development, and a York County councilman told Charlotte Business Journal that he thinks the team has permanently abandoned the project. Tepper Sports and Entertainment, the Panthers’ parent company, paused work on the 240-acre development nearly one month ago due to Rock Hill’s failure to distribute $225 million worth of bonds for infrastructure improvements. “This is going to be a stain on our name for other businesses,” councilman Bump Roddey said, acknowledging that the city didn’t keep its end of the bargain. Roddey believes the Panthers will seek to recover their...

Following nearly two years of restrictions, operations will return to normal, the league relayed in a memo Thursday, obtained by NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

"Based on current encouraging trends regarding the prevalence and severity of COVID-19, the evolving guidance from the CDC, changes to state law and the counsel...

  • This Former Rams Season-Ticket Holder Now Could Not Possibly Care Less

    In 1966 I began attending USC, and my dorm was a half-mile walk from the Coliseum. I bought a season-ticket: $2.50 per game times 7 games, or $17.50 per year. I had the center seat ten rows up in the east end zone, and I watched Roman Gabriel and Dick Bass and Jack Snow and the Fearsome Foursome lose to the Vikings every year.After a couple of years they raised prices on me: 4 bucks a game plus 3 preseason games, so now it was $40 a year. Instead, I got a job ushering, and now they paid me $6...

  • Quarterback Cancels Cancel Culture

    So it’s refreshing when a pro athlete like Green Bay Packer quarterback Aaron Rodgers unabashedly states, “I’m an athlete. I’m not an activist.” Rodgers, a Super Bowl winner, three-time Most Valuable Player in the National Football League, and nine-time Pro Bowl selectee, is generally considered one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. He has also become a polarizing, controversial figure and a target of the totalitarian left precisely because he doesn’t conform to the woke expectations of our heavily-politicized culture. Last November, Rodgers triggered the left-dominated media after making statements that did not align with the acceptable narrative about...

    America loves college football, loves its flyovers and cheers and opportunities to show patriotic pride, and doesn't want it tainted by politics.When college football came roaring back in September, sticking it to the Faucian fear porn that gathering with fellow fans in stadiums (or with anyone, anywhere) wasn’t “smart,” fans cheered the camaraderie of mass sports gatherings — as well as the lack of politicized messaging, in contrast to the wokeness of pro leagues like the NFL. Fans made their disdain for the COVID establishment known with chants of “F-ck Joe Biden,” and later the more tactful euphemism “Let’s go,...

    For Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford, launching ill-advised throws on Monday Night Football seems to run in the family. Stafford’s wife, Kelly, caused a stir by throwing a pretzel at a trash-talking 49ers fan at Levi’s Stadium during the Rams’ 31-10 loss to San Francisco on Monday, a defeat that featured two costly interceptions thrown by her husband. After getting called out on social media by a fan who claimed to witness her fury-filled fling, Kelly Stafford apologized for putting an ugly twist on the Rams’ embarrassing night. “Who do you think you are to do such a thing?” the witness...
