Replacement referee refers to Arizona in Atlanta-Baltimore preseason game

For many replacement referees, last night was their first NFL game. But for referee Craig Ochoa, last night’s Falcons-Ravens game was his second.

Chris Johnson thinks he can beat Usain Bolt in the 40

Now what’s the key word in that title? That’s right. It’s “thinks”.

If Howie Long was running the Jets he wouldn’t have brought Tim Tebow in

After receiving some criticism for saying he’d cut Tim Tebow, Boomer Esaison has decided to do what any rational human being would do: Find people that agree with his position on Tim Tebow.

The circus surrounding the New York Jets is off to a rousing start.

We’ve had ESPN’s small army of reporters giving up to the […]

Lions linebacker Justin Durant would continue to eat Chick-Fil-A even if they supported slavery

We’re sure you’re well aware of the brouhaha surrounding Chick-fil-A ever since owner Dan Cathy said he supports “the biblical definition of the family unit.” So there’s no need to get into that here.
