Laquon Treadwell’s broken leg used on front page of Opelika-Auburn News

When a player suffers a gruesome injury on the field, outlets should try to use a little discretion in using a picture or video of the injury in their coverage. The Opelika-Auburn News didn’t bother with that discretion on Sunday. Here’s what the front page of Sunday’s sports section looked like. Here is the cover […]

Someone is already trolling Darrell Bevell’s Wikipedia page

New England Patriots at Washington Redskins 08/28/09

Is the NFL’s Instagram page trolling the Patriots over #DeflateGate?

Behind the scenes: Making the Super Bowl XLIX footballs! #SB49 In the midst of an ENORMOUS controversy over #DeflateGate, it seems like a very weird time for the NFL’s official Instagram page to post a photograph of, you guessed it, deflated balls. The NFL shared this picture of the making of the footballs for Super […]

Somebody is already trolling Louis Van Gaal’s Wikipedia page

What’s true in the NFL is also true in the EPL.  The preseason means nothing. Manchester United learned that lesson the hard way after sweeping through their American preseason tour with everyone hailing former Netherlands manager Louis Van Gaal as an all-conquering hero. United lost the opening match of the 2014-15 EPL season 2-1 at […]


Ole Miss AD shames the Opelika-Auburn News

On Sunday, the Opelika-Auburn News published a picture of Ole Miss receiver LaQuon Treadwell breaking his leg on the front page of the sports section. It was pretty gross, and the backlash was strong. Ole Miss AD Ross Bjork wrote a letter to the editor of the paper, damning them for their use of the picture. […]


Dick Vitale opens up about not calling Duke-North Carolina for the first time

Yesterday we told you about the news that Dick Vitale would not be commentating the Duke-UNC game tomorrow night for the first time in his ESPN tenure.  Instead, it’ll be the Saturday primetime duo of Dan Shulman and Jay Bilas.  Vitale is an ESPN original, working at the network since their first year in 1979. […]


Philly radio host has your Ray Rice Hot Take of the Day

Philly shock jock Howard Eskin is no stranger to controversy.  Having almost half of your Wikipedia page dedicated to a “Controversy” section should be considered some kind of Lifetime Achievement Award for the sports talk radio industry. So perhaps it’s no surprise that Eskin took the bait and tweeted this terrible message to Janay Palmer […]

Adrian Peterson NFL controversy

Adrian Peterson is blaming the media for all his problems

When it comes to last resorts for the famous athlete or celebrity embroiled in a world of scandal, blaming the media is always the ace in the hole. Adrian Peterson has now reached that very desperate stage. With reports gaining steam about some serious questions in regards to his All Day Foundation charity not being on […]


The NFL on Fox has a new logo

The changes aren’t just confined to the broadcast booth for the NFL on Fox in 2014.  With the start of the NFL preseason in full swing this weekend, the network debuted a new logo on its social media pages that has something of a retro look.  Also, they appear to have gotten rid of that […]

prokhorov owners revel in “the ultimate troll”

For a while now, we’ve known that the owners of the URL were sitting on the domain name and hoping to sell it to the Brooklyn Nets for a healthy profit of $5 million.  The owners of the site have taken to internet guerrilla warfare tactics to try to get their money, including redirecting the […]


DC anchor says he’s done being a Redskins fan after 40 years

Brian Mitchell’s amazing rant about the Washington Redskins was one thing. This waving of the white flag by DC Fox 5 anchor Tony Perkins is another. The Washington Redskins are the worst team in football. Period. They don't deserve the undying loyalty that we the fans give them. — Tony Perkins (@TonyPerkinsFOX5)


Jimmy Fallon gives the Seahawks and 49ers superlatives

Jimmy Fallon’s Superlatives segment on The Tonight Show is one of our favorites, and he’s gone after sports stars on occasion. On Wednesday’s show, he stuck superlatives onto members of the Seahawks and 49ers, who faced off on NBC Thursday night. The results were predictably hilarious. Poor, poor Colin Kaepernick. First he gets compared to […]


Philly radio guy celebrates Victor Cruz’s devastating knee injury

Mike Missanelli is one of your typical sports radio bros who works for 97.5 FM in Philadelphia.  You might recall that he’s the guy who made some defamatory remarks about Michelle Beadle last year.  Or you might remember him as the guy who was suspended over homophobic e-mails that made their way public.  This is […]

(AUDIO) Great radio call for UCF hail mary

Above was my Twitter timeline in realtime last night as I was flipping through the dial with an array of live sports on last night.  Turns out I should have been watching the end of the UCF-ECU game, where the Knights stunned the Pirates on a last second Hail Mary. Here’s the fantastic UCF radio […]
