USA Track & Field Has Shot Itself In The Dick Yet Again USA Track & Field Has Shot Itself In The Dick Yet Again

No one in the world is better at creating needless controversy and riling up its own athletes and fans than USA Track & Field. Their latest hit: nuking by far its single greatest asset, the Olympic Trials.

Grambling State's Shakyla Hill Somehow Records Second Career Quadruple-Double Grambling State's Shakyla Hill Somehow Records Second Career Quadruple-Double

A year and a month ago, Shakyla Hill pulled off one of the rarest stat lines in sports: a quadruple-double in high-level basketball. (Her Grambling State team made the Division I NCAA tournament last year.) Her 15 points, 10 rebounds, 10 steals, and 10 assists against Alabama State was the first women’s…

Report: The Patriots Blame Tom Brady's Quack Trainer For Gronk's Injuries Report: The Patriots Blame Tom Brady's Quack Trainer For Gronk's Injuries

Rob Gronkowski is hobbled and washed, and Patriots brass at least in part blames Alex Guerrero, Tom Brady’s quack/body advisor. That’s according to a report by the NFL Network’s Michael Giardi:

Florida State Cuts QB Deondre Francois After Woman Posts Audio Of Man Threatening To Beat Her   Florida State Cuts QB Deondre Francois After Woman Posts Audio Of Man Threatening To Beat Her  

Florida State has cut starting quarterback Deondre Francois after he was accused of domestic violence for the second time. FSU coach Willie Taggart said in a statement, “Last night, I informed Deondre Francois that he is no longer a member of the Florida State football program.”

Former MMA Pro Under Arrest For Murder Somehow Escaped During A Stop At McDonald's For Breakfast [Updating] Former MMA Pro Under Arrest For Murder Somehow Escaped During A Stop At McDonald's For Breakfast [Updating]

Forty-four-year-old MMA veteran Cedric Marks was arrested last month in Michigan on burglary charges connected to three deaths, and the Montgomery County, Tex. police department says that he has three “pending” murder charges.

The Warriors Coaching Staff Is Heartbroken About Missing The All-Star Game The Warriors Coaching Staff Is Heartbroken About Missing The All-Star Game

The Warriors coaching staff has worked two All-Star Games in their run of dominating the league, and that apparently that’s enough. Or maybe they just really don’t want to spend a weekend in Charlotte. (Either way, who can blame them?) After beating the Lakers last night, though, the coaches’ midseason vacations were…

Gregg Popovich Wasn't That Impressed With The Spurs Mascot's Bat Capture Gregg Popovich Wasn't That Impressed With The Spurs Mascot's Bat Capture

Bats invading the San Antonio Spurs’ home arena is such a common occurrence that “the Spurs’ mascot caught a bat in a fishing net while wearing a Batman costume” is an accurate description of what happened last night, but also a Deadspin headline from 2015. So while it was amusing to watch various Spurs try to…

Soft Baby President Says Football Too Scary For Child  Soft Baby President Says Football Too Scary For Child 

Throughout the 2016 campaign and well into his administration, Donald Trump has made a point of calling the modern NFL cowardly and unwatchable for its slightly increased emphasis on concussion prevention. A sampling:

The Lakers' MUD Squad Is Sliding Downhill Fast The Lakers' MUD Squad Is Sliding Downhill Fast

The entire NBA needs a nap right now, and tensions must be especially high in LA with every player on the roster not named LeBron James or the untouchable Kentavious Caldwell-Pope on the trading block. The Lakers roster outside of LeBron broadly consists of young guys best known for fucking up on the court and some…

Fuck This Fucking Shit 

The Patriots beat the Chiefs 37-31 in an overtime instant classic at Kansas City, clinching the AFC title and a Super Bowl berth against the Rams. Tom Brady engineered long drives down the field at the end of regulation and in overtime—both of which ended with rushing touchdowns by Rex Burkhead.

Julian Edelman’s Fingertips Taketh, Giveth, Taketh Away

Julian Edelman’s hands ruled the most consequential sequence so far in tonight’s AFC title game. First, down 17-14, the Chiefs punted to the Patriots receiver, who appeared to muff the punt and set Kansas City up for a prime scoring opportunity. It seemed like to me on the replay that he did touch the ball, or at…

There's Only One Way This Could Get Worse There's Only One Way This Could Get Worse

It is absolutely rotten that the Saints’ season was ended at least in part by two blown pass interference calls, including an inexplicable one in the last two minutes. Rams corner Nickell Robey-Coleman, who smashed Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis in the head while the ball was in the air, said of the play: “Oh, hell…

Rams Head To Super Bowl While Saints Are Left To Be Haunted By Terrible Missed Penalty

Look: the officials didn’t make Drew Brees throw a horrific interception in overtime, and they didn’t make Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein nail a 57-yard game-winning field goal despite a low snap a few plays later. In fact, after a quarter and a half where the Saints jumped out to a 13-3 lead and the Rams seemed deeply…

Rams Give Up A Touchdown To Taysom Goddamn Hill Rams Give Up A Touchdown To Taysom Goddamn Hill

The Saints have been force-feeding the ball to their Tebowian backup quarterback Taysom Hill in crucial situations, and head coach Sean Payton’s obsession with Hill paid off today in the third quarter against the Rams. Hill lined up wide on third and goal for a screen, and Drew Brees found one of his backups for a…

The Fan Who Keeps Whistling During Rams-Saints Is Impressively Loud The Fan Who Keeps Whistling During Rams-Saints Is Impressively Loud

You’re not hearing things—it does sound like a whistle is blowing before every Rams offensive play in today’s NFC title game. That noise is very likely being made at least in part by a superfan named Leroy “Whistle Monsta” Mitchell, who’s been doing it at Saints home games for 22 years. The whistle is created just…

MMQB senior editor Gary Gramling delivers the truly batshit take that Andy Reid—who lost four NFC championship games to mostly inferior teams in Philadelphia and then authored two of the worst meltdowns in NFL playoff history in Kansas City—is actually good in the playoffs. Specifically, “‘Andy Reid chokes in the…

What's Up With These NFL Next Gen Stats? What's Up With These NFL Next Gen Stats?

Dating back a few years, the NFL has put microchips in players’ pads to track their movements in games. Since the beginning of the 2017 season, the company that sends you shit in the mail and provides the architecture for a lot of the internet has slapped its name on the statistics generated by those microchips. Some…

Russell Westbrook On If He And Joel Embiid Are Cool: "Fuck No" Russell Westbrook On If He And Joel Embiid Are Cool: "Fuck No"

Thunder-Sixers has become an inordinately frisky inter-conference rivalry. Last season’s two matchups were marked by relentless shit-talking and mockery on-court and online between Sixers center Joel Embiid and Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook. A lot of waving goodbye was involved. The teams played this…
