Because racism is seemingly the answer to everything at ESPN, analyst Robert Flores was able to easily ask and answer his own question during a highlight reel on SportsCenter when he openly wondered why the Chief’s Travis Kelce wasn’t getting the same amount of criticism for his end zone celebration as Cam Newton received for his.
Tim Tebow’s relationship with former Miss USA model Olivia Culpo is over. Because, according to reports, Culpo is upset that the couple isn’t having sex, since Tebow has decided to remain abstinent until marriage.
Sports and politics are an uneasy mix, but ESPN's "The Truth" columnist Howard Bryant sees no conflict from his end-zone perch at the back of ESPN's biweekly magazine. His column for the December 7 edition tackled a mini-scandal about the Pentagon paying for patriotic displays at professional ball games: "Are You Ready for Some Patriotism?" Bryant went beyond genuine concerns over the sub-rosa marketing by the Pentagon to criticize any such respectful acts as pandering to police. Going full p.c., Bryant even argued that Veterans Day was a slap in the face to American Indians.
On Monday’s edition of Around the Horn on ESPN, analyst J.A. Adande was asked whether he bought or sold Redskin Jason Hatcher’s claim that calls --specifically an illegal hit call on Redskin Chris Culliver-- were due to bias on the part of officials toward the Redskins name.
So just when I was good and ready to declare Eagles fans the all-time worst fans in the history of history a new and far more contemptible force of fandamonium has reared its ugly head.
So, this happened. During an international soccer match between Turkey and Greece (I won’t use the term friendly, for reasons you’re about to see and hear. In addition to the fact that Turkey and Greece hate each other) a moment of silence was called for, to remember the victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris.Only one problem. There was very, very little silence as Turkish fans started booing.
The Packers had a really bad day today. Very few things went right as they lost to the Lions at home for the first time since 1991. As it turns out, even the pre-game moment of silence in tribute to the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks went awry.
So, pretty much the most ironic and poetically just thing, ever, happened today in the Cowboys locker room. Or, maybe it didn’t. I must insert the disclaimer, since so many n-word accusations turn out to be so much bunk. But if what I’m about to tell you truly went down as Dez Bryant says it did, this is beyond rich.
In an ESPN article written by Senior Writer Elizabeth Merrill, she lauds the bravery of Jonathan Butler, the head of the Concerned Students 1950 organization at Missouri, and the student who went on a hunger strike to get former University System President Tim Wolfe ousted.
Some, who aren’t familiar with the social commentary of controversial ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith, who happens to be black, might assume that his opinion on the crazy goings-on at Mizzou might be entirely one-sided and completely in favor of the student and student-athlete radicals.
Michael Sam has a lot to learn about being a radical liberal activist. After University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe resigned on Monday, Sam, the former Mizzou stand-out and first openly gay player in the NFL, told MSNBC that, “he did not experience any racial issues” while he was a student athlete at Mizzou.
Like a tree falling in the woods, a Missouri football player not in the team twitter pic expressing solidarity with campus radicals apparently makes no sound. Why is this? Well, because apparently those dissenting football players need not be mentioned.
