The Pacers and Domas Sabonis have agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $74.9-million, according to reports.  With bonuses, Sabonis could earn up to $85-million.

NBA zero-tolerance policy for idiot fans misses the mark – need physical disincentive
October 21, 2019

There is one consequence that ensures an idiot will keep his mouth shut in a situation where he might otherwise spew racial epithets and profanity – the threat he will get his ass kicked. In major league sports, the last time I can remember a player going into the stands to issue a physical counter-measure against a fan […]

October 20, 2019

Indiana beat Maryland 34-28 yesterday, putting its season win total at five. For those IU grads who had trouble getting through M-014 (a non-credit basic math course), that leaves the Hoosiers one win shy of bowl eligibility.

Ramsey is a shut down corner displeased with how he was treated by the Jaguars, and the Rams feel he can put […]

LeBron James ignores human rights and gets pragmatic in his criticism of Daryl Morey
October 15, 2019

“I don’t want to get into a word or sentence feud with Daryl Morey, but I believe he wasn’t educated on the situation at hand, and he spoke. And so many people could have been harmed not only financially, physically, emotionally, spiritually. So just be careful what we tweet and say and what we do, even […]

The fix for terrible NFL officiating is to trust and empower the refs by eliminating replay
October 14, 2019

Here’s what happens when an employee every decision is second guessed – he or she works to be perfect, and perfect doesn’t exist. That’s part of the reason officiating in the NFL continues to erode.  Replay expands to pass interference calls, and all of a sudden flags fly all over the field.  Penalties are being called 16% more […]
