Week 3 of the NFL season kicks off Thursday at Levis Stadium in Santa Clara, CA. The L.A. Rams hit the road for the first time this season to take on the San Francisco 49ers. The Rams opened the season with a blowout victory over the Andrew Luck-less Indianapolis, 46-9. They followed up with a competitive effort against Washington, but fell short 27-20. Second-year quarterback Jared Goff appears to be getting comfortable, and the Rams are putting up some points. If their defense can keep up, the Rams could be poised to contend in the NFC West. That Rams defense should be comfortable facing a 49ers offense which has been woefully inept so far this year. The Niners put up only three points in their home opener against Carolina, and nine in last weeks game against Seattle. They played well defensively in the latter, and nearly stole one Continue reading "How to Watch 49ers-Rams NFL Thursday Night Football Live Stream Online"
Hulk Hogan is opening up about his lawsuit against Gawker. In an interview set to air this weekend on OBJECTified, hosted by TMZ’s Harvey Levin, the wrestling legend acknowledged that his legal victory over the now-shuttered website — which settled with him for more than $31 million — will be a defining part of his legacy. “It was much bigger than me or much bigger than my career,” Hogan said. “This was something that and you know, I’ve said it before and I’m not joking around.” In a portion of the interview not included in the footage above, Levin asked Hogan about his 2010 admission that he nearly committed suicide by putting a gun in his mouth. “I got to a point where everything kind of hit me at the same time,” Hogan said. “The divorce, my whole world Continue reading "Hulk Hogan Opens Up About Gawker Suit: ‘It Was Much Bigger Than Me’"
New York sports radio hot Don LaGreca is not a fan of the New York Giants offensive line. Nor, apparently, is he a fan of math. His combined disdain for the two produced an absolutely golden rant for the ages on Wednesday. LaGreca was peeved about statisticians trying to quantify the Giants’ dreadful offensive front — which has allowed eight sacks in the first two games of the season. For LaGreca, you see, is a football fan. And he don’t need no stinkin’ numbers to tell him what he can see with his own eyes. “The offensive line sucks! Period! That’s my stat!” LaGreca said. “You want a stat?…Offensive line stinks. That’s the stat!” From there, LaGreca’s outburst went nuclear. We’ve transcribed a portion here, but it just doesn’t suffice. It must be watched. It Continue reading "WATCH: Sports Radio Host Looks Like He’s Having a Seizure During Rant For the Ages"

After 17 years as a defensive coordinator in the NFL for seven different teams, Rob Ryan is out of the league this season for the first time since 1999. No longer sporting team-issued garb, Ryan apparently felt liberated to dig into the very back of his closet to drudge up the absolute monstrosity of a jacket seen above. It’s an ensemble that the great retired coach and broadcaster John Madden would call Ryan’s “give-ups” — an indication that he simply does not care about public perception of his look. Whether he cares or not, Ryan certainly wasn’t going to stop people from weighing-in on this hideousness. Twitter stepped up to the plate in a big way, and had this to say about Ryan-chic

called President Donald Trump a white supremacist on Twitter — an issue he feels especially passionate about as he was fired from the network for making controversial right-wing comments. After Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt made a comparison between Hill’s political comments and Schilling’s, implying that the conservative got fired for doing it while the liberal did not, the former Red Sox pitcher responded:
“Her calling [Trump] a racist is not a surprise. Disney and ESPN have stopped giving all pretense of objectivity Continue reading "Curt Schilling Continues Crusade Against ESPN: ‘Most Racist People in Sports Are at the Station’"
Politics and ESPN has been a hot topic since SportsCenter anchor Jemele Hill‘s tweet last week in which she called President Donald Trump a white supremacist. Curt Schilling has not been shy about weighing in on the issue since. The former Red Sox pitcher and current Breitbart host, though, claims that politics — at least conservative politics — were taboo while he was working at the Worldwide Leader. Appearing on Tucker Carlson Tonight Wednesday, the former ESPN analyst — who was fired after sharing an anti-transgender post on Facebook — said he was part of a secret society of sorts at the network. “We were like one of those secret Hogwarts clubs in ESPN,” Schilling said. “Behind-the-scenes, people would walk up to me — in my ear and say, ‘Listen, I’m with you on your politics.’ You were afraid to be found out.” Schilling went on to Continue reading "Curt Schilling: Conservatives at ESPN ‘Were Afraid to Be Found Out’"
We’ve got a bonus edition of This Week in Bad Football Fan Behavior on tap. Tuesday, we focused on the college ranks — posting about a tailgate brawl between fans prior to the Kentucky vs. South Carolina game on Saturday. But it’s back to the pros for this bonus edition. In a video posted by YouTube user RAIDER BEN (h/t Deadspin) Sunday afternoon in Oakland following the Raiders vs. Jets game, a group of Raiders fans were reportedly arguing over an Uber. One fan appeared to try to pull open the vehicle’s door, while the fan who was seated inside the car tried to keep the door closed. The camera pointed elsewhere momentarily. But once it went back on the scene, fisticuffs promptly broke out. Several fans wailed away at each other, taking violent swings at people who were already on the ground. Then, a fan dressed in Continue reading "Bad Football Fan Behavior: Raiders Fans Wail Away at Each Other in Violent Post-Game Brawl"
