Rumors surfaced recently that the reason Ray Rice and his then fiance Janay were arguing that fateful night in the first place was because of Rice getting text messages from Teyana Taylor. She quickly shots those rumors down herself when she was asked about it, leaving people wondering what was the truth. Turns out it indeed did have something to do with a woman, it just wasn’t Teyana.

It is getting worse and worse for Roger Goodell and the NFL and now there is even more news that shows proof some shady s**t is going on. Reports have evidence that the Ravens organization as well as commissioner Goodell knew months ago about the newly released tape of Ray Rice punching his wife and knocking her out in an elevator at a casino in Atlantic City.
Everyone can have their own opinion, but within New York City, it is almost blasphemous to speak negatively about Derek Jeter. SNY’s own Chris Carlin, who covers baseball for the network decided just before he is about to retire would be the best time to try and trash Jeter. He comes off more like a disgruntled former friend or something because the reasons he is choosing to call him names and try and tear him down just make no sense. Hit the jump.
Remember that old huge Lebron Banner that was hanging on the side of a warehouse in downtown Cleveland? The same huge banner that was torn down by the city after Bron bolted for South Beach? Well the iconic image is about to be back where it belongs thanks to a new vote by the city council. They voted to approve a new mural that will hang close to the old location and overlook the Cavs arena. Either way it is still dope. Hit the jump for pics.
WOW…I guess fans are not playing any games. Earlier this year and late last year the New England Patriots did something for their fans who owned Aaron Hernandez jerseys. Fans who bought the jersey of the incarcerated former star were allowed to return them and exchange them for another player. The Baltimore Ravens obviously were paying attention and decided they needed to do something similar regarding Ray Rice. Hit the jump.
It is safe to say NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has rubbed alot of people across the country the wrong way with his actions lately. The decision to only suspend Ray Rice for two games sparked outrage itself. Add to that the possibility that Goodell lied to the face of fans about not seeing the infamous tape of Rice striking his wife in the elevator, and it is easy to see why he is not in good standing. He held a press conference today, mainly to try and save face but one person in attendance decided to interrupt and speak his honest thoughts. As security dragged him out he starts to scream something that will seem very familiar given all the recent activity. Sorry Ray Rice. Hit the jump.
Earlier this week, Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington resigned from his position, but not for your normal type of reason. Most coaches get fired or quit because their team stinks or had a really bad year. While the Rangers did have a terrible season, Washington is claiming their is a more personal reason why he chose to quit. He says it has to do with cheating on his wife and not being true to her which I guess could cause him to not be focused on his job. Hit the job to hear it from himself.
Rumors took off like an airplane when the Eagles released star receiver DeSean Jackson earlier this year. Everyone thought they knew why the team would make such a drastic move. Some people thought it was because of Jackson’s alleged gang affiliations. Others thought it was because he disrespected coach Kelly and was only concerned about himself. In anticipation of this weeks matchup between Jackson’s new team the Redskins and his old team, Coach Kelly himself spoke on why the Eagles really let him go. It is actually pretty simple, but that depends if you believe him or not. Hit the jump.
Those HD cameras covering sporting events capture everything and fans don’t miss a thing! During the Atlanta Falcons huge blowout win last night over the Tampa Bay Bucs, receiver Eric Weems had his hairline exposed to the world and twitter had no chill! Weems should be happy the win was such a blowout for his team otherwise his head may of gotten even more attention. Some jokes were real funny. Hit the jump.
From what I have heard, Waka is actually pretty good on the basketball court, but this night just wasn’t his night. Fresh off performing a set, Waka saw a ball and a hoop and couldn’t help himself. He goes up once for the dunk and just misses, but it’s the second attempt that really lands him on his ass, literally. Hit the jump.
