Month: February 2018

This season, which began last weekend, has already been somewhat of an ordeal.

Australian media on Wednesday reported that Hayne has been removed from the Titans’ leadership group over attitude problems, and that the star fullback argued with teammates about a number of issues, including him being overweight. One newspaper said his weight had increased to 238 pounds.

He’s come back a bit heavy and we’re working on that, Henry told Sky Sports.

Riddell is the biggest football equipment maker with about $200 million in sales, and Schutt is second with $55 million.

Platinum bought Schutt in 2010 out of bankruptcy for $28 million, so it is free of the concussion liabilities that burden Riddell.

Still, suitors also have bigger-picture concerns about the popularity of football, sources said.

The market for helmets for varsity high school football on up is stable, but the number of players from 8 to 12 years old has decreased as kids move more to flag or protected flag football, the source close to the situation said.

Riddell, Fenway Partners and Park Lane declined comment. Platinum did not return calls.

Finally, a service for lazy, forgetful NFL tailgaters

Amazon Prime already has been a boon to millions of people who are busy, forgetful or just plain lazy. Its special deals on two-day and next-day shipping have benefited countless folks who forgot a gift for that special someone whose birthday wasn’t special enough to remember.

Now, the Seattle-based tech giant is branching out into the sports world by targeting the thoughtless tailgater with Yasmani Grandal Jersey more team spirit than time or attentiveness.

Rasmus Ristolainen Elite Jersey But there’s more. The profitable juggernaut that is the NFL office also continues to enjoy a grandfathered-in not-for-profit status, despite the fact that it pays a handful of top executives a total of $50 million dollars a year in salaries and bonuses.

Boston Bruins Elite Jersey Then there are the NFL stadiums financed with taxpayer dollars 锟斤拷 $200 million in municipal debt, for example, from the city of Atlanta for a new home for its beloved Falcons.

Yes, NFL Inc. is flourishing, even as its fans struggle with high unemployment and stagnant wages.

It comes as no surprise that the billionaires who are the exclusive shareholders in one of the best businesses in the world want to keep sweeping their dirty laundry under the rug.

The Browns’ second-round pick, DeShone Kizer, made his first start of the preseason against the Buccaneers and a glance at the stat sheet might make it seem like it’s business as usual with the organization’s latest attempt to unearth a franchise quarterback.

That’s something La Canfora reported back when Ballard was hired; the Colts had already decided to give Pagano an extra year (that’s on Irsay, so, yeah). Look at the list of coaching candidates I broke down for the Colts on Monday and Toub is right there. Personally, I would want the Colts to secure an offensive guy who will take care of Andrew Luck, but landing Toub and having him bring in an offensive guru from the Reid coaching line would be perfectly fine too.

How on earth did Koetter keep his job? Tampa fans were sick of him, and the Glazer family has been crazy quick with the trigger when it comes to coaches ever since firing Gruden after the 2008 season. In the nearly decade since, the longest-tenured coach for Tampa is Raheem Morris. Wild stuff.

There is a pretty good chance if Gruden was willing to come back to Tampa we would have seen the end of Koetter, and it may have spelled trouble for the front office as well. The Bucs’ season was a disaster, and the regression from Jameis Winston should be a major red flag.

30 percent of NFL fans are watching less 锟斤拷 and most blame anthem protests

NFL diehards are calling offside on the league over players’ anthem protests, a new poll has found.
Giants Jersey
Thirty percent of self-described fans of the NFL say they are watching less football this season, and more than half blame players protesting racism by kneeling during the national anthem, according to the Seton Hall Sports Poll, conducted by The Sharkey Institute.
Of those watching fewer games, 52 percent said it was because they disagreed with the protests.

We look forward to him joining the conversation, said Joe Lockhart, executive vice president of communications for the NFL.

The original meeting included 13 current or former players, plus 11 owners and representatives from the NFL and NFLPA, according to ESPN. The league did not formally invite Kaepernick, who began the movement to raise awareness for the mistreatment of minorities by police officers and racial inequality by sitting and then kneeling during the national anthem last season. Many other players joined him in the protest, which has spread to other sports and other countries.
Limited Kids Connor Cook Jersey
The league became more involved in the discussion about the protests in part because President Trump has attacked the players who kneel or sit several times on social media and at press conferences, igniting further tensions by urging owners to get that son of a b锟斤拷h off the field and to cut players who protest during the anthem.

The NFL pulled an about-face Wednesday, Womens Albert McClellan Jersey announcing Mike Tirico will replace Al Michaels in the booth for NBC’s coverage of Thursday night games this season. The league previously had turned down NBC’s reported request to seat Tirico alongside analyst Cris Collinsworth, citing contractual obligations in leaving Tirico out of the equation.

Quincy Wilson Kids Jersey Although there have been a number of changes in the networks’ broadcast booths over the past couple of seasons, our priority, and the priority of our network partners remains the same 锟斤拷 produce a high quality, engaging broadcast that our fans love whether its Thursday, Sunday or Monday, the NFL said in a statement. For ‘TNF,’ we get that with Mike Tirico, a terrific broadcaster, and Cris Collinsworth at NBC and the new team of Jim Nantz and Tony Romo at CBS.

Historically safeties don’t go in the top 10 because they don’t have as much of an impact as a corner or maybe a pass rusher or what have you.

The Denver Broncos issued a statement from their players Thursday, in which they said, “Starting Sunday, we’ll be standing together.” Last Sunday, more than 30 Broncos players took a knee during the national anthem, then team leaders convened this week to discuss how to proceed in future games.

“I would say the evolution of the college game is what’s sort of driving this,” Savage said in a conference call with reporters for SiriusXM’s draft analysts. “So in other words, as the college game has gone to more three- and four-wide-receiver sets, you have to have safeties that can cover and play in space.

“In this case and in this era where not only is it wideouts that these guys have to cover, they’re having to cover these outstanding tight ends, the evolution of it is that you have a player like Hooker. You have a player like Adams that now emerges as a potential top-five, certainly top-10 choice for an NFL team.”

That’s all I care for. So as far as them kneeling and all that, I’m not gonna do it. But I respect everybody else’s decision to do whatever they want to do as Americans. Land of the free, home of the brave, so do what you want. It doesn’t bother me.”

Dolphins offense: This may be a first in trotting out an entire offense, but after getting shut out by a New Orleans team that had been pretty mediocre defensively, this is a do-or-die week for the Miami offense. This is not what Jay Cutler had in mind when he came out of retirement, but if the Dolphins can’t get it done against a Titans defensive unit that just gave up 57 points, then heralded fantasy players such as Jay Ajayi, Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker fall into the dreaded matchup abyss. This would be a devastating development for Ajayi owners, who are depending on him to produce like an elite back.

But there’s optimism with the matchup against Tennessee. Cutler is hardly a recommended play, but owners of Landry and Parker are certainly rooting for him to succeed. Landry has seen a ton of targets and has his cheerleaders this weekend. But Parker has his supporters, too. Despite the disappointment against the Saints, you almost have to roll the dice that the Dolphins are about to break out.chargers_017

A surprising list charging toward national coach of the year

The conversation for national coach of the year never feels as sexy or provocative as the Wooden Award race most seasons.
Men's Adidas Toronto Maple Leafs #29 Mike Palmateer Authentic Black 1917-2017 100th Anniversary NHL Jersey
This season’s candidate pool features an interesting mix of new faces and established winners. But the front-runner is clear.

This feels like 2016. Jalen Brunson (19.0 PPG, 5.2 APG, 49 percent from beyond the arc) looks like Josh Hart, who is now giving the Los Angeles Lakers quality minutes off the bench. And Omari Spellman, who redshirted last season because of academic issues, is in shape and playing a Draymond Green-like role for a Villanova squad that boasts double-digit wins over Gonzaga (16 points) and Xavier (24 points) and entered the week first in adjusted offensive efficiency on We expect Villanova to compete with the best. This year, however, Wright has led his squad to a collection of definitive wins, and Wildcats now look like the team to beat in college basketball.

The Niners might have forced overtime if not for a missed extra point by kicker Robbie Gould. (The longer extra point decides a game!) That forced them into a two-point conversion attempt with just over two minutes left, trailing by two. It failed. The Niners got the ball right back on a successful onside kick. But their last-gasp drive was undone by a questionable 鈥?to put it kindly 鈥?offensive pass interference penalty. (An officiating controversy!)

Elite Mens Zach Parise Jersey The NFL can only hope for more games like this one.

Bottom line: Drake’s skill set screams change-of-pace pass-catching back but Joe Flacco Youth jersey what if he’s more than that? I wouldn’t burn a waiver priority on Drake but if he ends up unclaimed, add him as a free agent and see if he pans out in two or three weeks.

Elite Mens Zack Kassian Jersey NEWS: Jonathan Stewart injured his hamstring Sunday and will be out at least a week according to Ron Rivera.

Fantasy spin: Stewart was dealing with an ankle injury all week and it’s entirely possible the hamstring injury is in some way, shape or form related to that. Stewart has missed a lot of time over his career so the injury shouldn’t be totally surprising.
