Watch This Compilation Of NFL Players Talking Trash And Teasing Each Other
An overwhelming majority of the things NFL players say while on the field are either woefully uninteresting or filled with too many curse words and/ or team secrets to be played in public. That being said, there are always a few great comments picked up by the microphones that are worth listening to each week, and apparently, when compiled together, they make a pretty sweet YouTube video.
Former NFL Cheerleader Arrested For Trying To Give 12-Year-Old Boy A BJ
Most twelve-year-old boys like to think of themselves as smooth, sexually sophisticated ladies men, at least if they were put in the right situation. I know this because I was once a twelve-year-old boy with plenty of male twelve-year-old friends and all of us talked out of our asses about how great we would be with a girl if we were given the chance. Well, if this story proves anything, itís that many twelve-year-olds are not ready, regardless of what they might tell you.
2 More NFL Prospects Admit They Were Asked About Sexual Orientation
Itís highly unlikely that any NFL general managers are so homophobic they wouldnít be willing to draft a homosexual player. What I think is more likely is that these teams are asking about everything they can imagine, trying to gauge whether a person is a partier, whether theyíve settled down, whether theyíll be reliable and whether they have good support systems. Even so, however, thereís now way NFL executives wonít take this seriously. Weíll let you know what their investigation discovers.
NFL Investigating Claim Team Asked About Player's Sexual Orientation During Combine
In addition to timed sprints, monitored bench presses, invasive measurements and thorough physicals, wannabe NFL players who attend the leagueís annual combine undergo dozens of interviews with general managers, scouts and team presidents. During these chats, the players are grilled about everything from their football knowledge to their off-the-field behavior. From past arrests to poor performances, quite a bit comes up, but if Colorado tight end Nick Kasa is to be believed, the grilling went a little too far during one of his chats.
Watch These British Teenagers Get Quizzed About The NFL
Apart from those who have spent time living in foreign countries and those who are particularly excited about sports, the average American doesnít know anything about rugby, except the fact that itís vaguely like football and doesnít involve as many pads. So, that got YouTube user Billy White wondering about how much English teenagers know about American football.
Tim Tebow Cancels Speaking Gig At Controversial Dallas Church
A little more than two months from now, NFL quarterback Tim Tebow was scheduled to speak about his well-documented faith at First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas. Given his willingness to preach openly and on the record and his history of similar appearances, nothing seemed to be out of the ordinary when he first booked the gig, but in recent weeks, some information about the head pastor of the eleven thousand plus member mega-church has come to light.
What Major Professional Sports League Has The Best All-Star Weekend?
This weekend, the NBA took a pause from its regular season to celebrate the best of the best, to give the fans a special show and to woo potential sponsors with a young stars game, a celebrities game, a skills competition and an all-star game. To a certain degree, every single professional sports league does something similar, but the specifics of each are different.
Joe Flacco Drops F-Bomb After Super Bowl Victory
Ravens quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco had a good game tonight, and after the Ravens won this yearís title the man, like the rest of the team, was on the field giving hugs and making exclamatory statements. Unlike some of his teammates, Flacco was the only player caught throwing out an f-bomb, although I will note it was an obscenity with a positive bent.
Unexpected Timeout: Super Bowl Delayed After Power Outage
The Super Bowl is a glitzy, well-polished event. Hundreds, maybe even thousands of trained professionals work crazy hours leading up to and during the game to make sure it goes off without a hitch, but none of that effort can change the fact that itís a live event and crazy shit can happen. Case and point: the power went out during todayís game.
NFL Might Make Changes To The Rooney Rule
Ten years ago, after an extended period of lobbying by Pittsburgh Steelers chairman Dan Rooney, the National Football League instituted the Rooney Rule which requires all teams to interview at least one minority candidate for head coach and general manager vacancies. In the decade since, twice as many head coaches (12) have landed jobs than did in the eighty years prior. Unfortunately, this offseason didnít exactly work as planned.
Super Bowl: 4 Reasons To Root Either For Or Against The 49ers And Ravens
There are a lot of people who love the San Francisco 49ers, and there are a lot of people who love the Baltimore Ravens. When added together, this number easily extends into the millions and may even creep into eight figures. Since Iím feeling generous, letís say this total is over eight figures. Letís say twelve, no, fifteen million people are totally in love with the Baltimore Ravens or the San Francisco 49ers.
Dan Marino Admits He Fathered A Child With A CBS Production Assistant
Almost a decade ago, NFL legend Dan Marino had an affair with a CBS production assistant. The woman, named Donna Savattere, gave birth to their love child back in June of 2005, and only now has the affair become public. Apparently, the longtime Miami Dolphin paid her millions of dollars, and the two agreed never to discuss the affair in public. Unfortunately, someone leaked the story earlier this week, and rather than peddle a bunch of lies, Marino admitted what happened.

Washington DC Mayor Wants Redskins To Change Name
The Redskins brand is clearly one of the most valuable in the NFL, but Washington, D.C. mayor Vincent Gray really, really wants the team to change its name. Thereís no doubt that his idea is coming from the correct place.
