If you thought Alex Rodriguez storming out of a court room would be all the fireworks we would have today, you were mistaken.

After getting publicly mad during his PED arbitration hearing on his suspension, A-Rod popped onto Mike Francesa’s radio show on WFAN and YES Network to go off on Commissioner Bud Selig and Major League Baseball’s actions against him. Continue reading

Removing Stephen Hill From The Starting Lineup Is Smart, But Does Not Make Him a Jets Draft Bust

Alfonzo Dennard, Stephen Hill

According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, Rex Ryan is considering taking wide receiver, Stephen Hill, out of the starting lineup when the Jets go to Baltimore to take on the Ravens, Sunday.

While it would represent a step down for the 2nd-year receiver out of Georgia Tech, it is the right move.  When dealing with the project, it is important to evaluate the best use and strategy with them.  Hill, who many projected would take a long time to adjust to NFL norms, is indeed struggling, but taking him out of the lineup can be a good thing for someone who still has a lot of time before being called a “bust”.

Iman Shumpert and Three Trades the Knicks Could Eventually Include Him In

iman-shumpert-knicks-orange-jersey

Ever since the “Iman Shumpert to Denver for the Nuggets Kenneth Faried” rumor hit a few weeks back, the NBA has been ripe with rumors for possible destinations for Shump.

Talk has been anything from a trade to the Celtics for Rajon Rondo, to one for disgruntled Rockets big man, Omer Asik.

But taking the cap into account and the December 15th deadline for recently signed players, here are some actual possibilities the Knicks have if they want to use Shumpert in a trade. Continue reading

If the Knicks and their fans were not panicking after losing their 3rd game in a row (to the Al Jefferson-less Charlotte Bobcats), they certainly are now.

The Time Is Now For the Jets To Extend Rex Ryan’s Contract

rex_ryan_jets_saints_nfl_1

The New York Jets enter the Bye Week at 5-4, a record inconceivable to even the most optimistic of fans before this season.  The season has been up and down, something that could be predicted with an inconsistent rookie quarterback, but they have several wins over preseason Super Bowl favorites, such as the Falcons, Patriots, and Saints.

And while we too cannot predict how this consistently random season of win-loss-win-loss-win-loss-win-loss-win will go, we should all know one thing: It’s time to make it official and lock up Rex Ryan long term. Continue reading

Nick Saban Tells Alabama Fans Not To Leave Early Because He Is an Arrogant, Awareness-Lacking Hypocrite (Bye Miami Dolphins!)

nicksaban_dolphins_800_471014a

Alabama has dominated college football over the past two and half years, so maybe Nick Saban is getting bored beating up inferior teams.

Now he has decided to go after his own fans.

Last Friday, Alabama suspended the block seating privileges of 20 student organizations who get discounted tickets to games.  The reason for this stems from a radio segment the head coach appeared on the day before, where he complained about fans coming late and leaving early from games: Continue reading
