New York Post Under Scrutiny For Ridiculous Article Title

What you’ll see below is a little beyond the realm of what’s considered acceptable, however.Monday, reports surfaced that former Texas A&M wide receiver Thomas Johnson – who played for the Aggies for one year – had admitted to murdering a man in Dallas on a jogging trail. Tuesday morning, the New York Post went with a very questionable title for its version of the story.I mean, come on @nypost. pic.twitter.com/DEsvuU9DyU— Barrett Sallee (@BarrettSallee) October 13, 2015Johnny Manziel, obviously, has nothing to do with the story.So far, the publication hasn’t backed down and changed its title.

Report: Leonard Fournette’s Family May Have Broken NCAA Rules

Posted on by

first_imgLeonard Fournette talks during an interview.YouTube/LSU Tiger TV YouTube/LSU Tiger TVYouTube/LSU Tiger TVLSU sophomore running back Leonard Fournette is the leading candidate for the Heisman Trophy this year, given the fact that he’s rushed for 1,352 yards and 15 touchdowns in just seven games. But according to USA TODAY, his family could be in a bit of trouble with the NCAA regarding a website that was launched back ahead of the 2014 season.According to the publication, a website dedicated to “BUGA Nation” – which stands for “Being United Generates Attitude” – was launched with the intent to sell tee shirts and hats to the public. Fournette “helped develop” the acronym. Here’s more:Paul Price, described by Fournette’s mother as the family’s manager, made payments of about $10,000 to build a website and produce the merchandise to be sold, the owners of three companies involved told USA TODAY Sports. The owners said they gave Price and the Fournettes more than $20,000 in discounts because they expected strong sales driven by the star running back’s popularity. Even with the discounts, one of the business owners said he has yet to be paid in full.The website launched the week of LSU’s 2014 season opener, but the business went no further — sales of T-shirts and hats were stopped within 24 hours after the NCAA learned of its existence, according to Lory Fournette.Clearly, the issue here is that players and their families are not allowed to profit off of an athlete’s likeness, image or name.Will this lead to NCAA issues for LSU and Fournette? At this point, it’s hard to say. You can read the entire article over at USA TODAY.last_img read more

Liverpool history: Titles, managers, top players & trophies

Posted on by

first_imgLiverpool are one of the most successful sides in England, with Jurgen Klopp hopefully returning the club to its former glory days after securing a sixth Champions League trophy in June 2019.Klopp seems to have been tasked with rebuilding the Reds into a dominant force in Europe, but time will tell if they will be able to capitalise on their 2018-19 success and continue to lift silverware in years to come.With Liverpool providing a decent challenge for the title this year, Goal takes a look at the club’s history, their most influential and important players, and how many trophies they have won. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare How many league titles have Liverpool won? Liverpool have won the top-flight title on 18 occasions, but have not won the league since it was rebranded as the Premier League in 1992.The last time the Reds won the league – then branded as the First Division – was in 1990 season. Eleven of the First Division wins came during the club’s most illustrious period of the 1970s and 80s, under the management of Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan and Kenny Dalglish.The Merseysiders have come close to winning the Premier League most notably on three occasions. Under Rafael Benitez in the 2008-09 season, Liverpool finished four points behind champions Manchester United despite beating the Mancunian side both home and away.They came close again five years later when Brendan Rodgers lead Liverpool again to a second-placed finish after dominating most of the season as title challengers, though eventually finishing two points adrift of Manchester City after a disastrous collapse towards the end of their campaign.In 2018-19, Liverpool narrowly finished second to Manchester City despite losing just one game all season.Who are memorable Liverpool managers? Liverpool Dalglish Moran EvansFrom R to L: Evans, Dalglish, Moran Bill Shankly’s reign as manager starting from 1959 began a 15-year spell that brought three league titles, two FA Cups and a first European Cup back to Anfield. Shankly is hailed for turning Liverpool into a modern club great, and is known for his establishment of the Anfield Boot Room.When Shankly retired in 1974, he was replaced by his assistant Paisley (the first cycle of the Boot Room), and during the next nine years, Paisley was hugely successful – winning six league titles and three European Cups to earn his status as the club’s most successful coach.Shankly was replaced by his assistant Joe Fagan to continue with the Boot Room tradition in 1983, winning the League, European Cup and League Cup treble in his first season.The likes of iconic player-manager Kenny Dalglish took over from Fagan and was followed by Ronnie Moran, Graeme Souness and Roy Evans.Gerard Houllier won the FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Cup treble in 2001 before he was replaced by Rafael Benitez in 2004, who won the Champions League in his first season in charge. He was then succeeded by Roy Hodgson, brief whose tenure at Anfield was a failure, and spent the opening stages of the 2010-11 season in the relegation zone.Who are Liverpool’s most famous players? Dalglish, known for his contributions as player and manager as well as club ambassador, remains popular with Liverpool supporters to this day. Having scored 169 goals in 502 appearances for the Reds, the Scot sits seventh in the club’s all-time top-scorers list. He has also clinched six First Division titles and three European Cups, making him one of the most decorated and celebrated Liverpool players in history.Former striker Ian Rush has also lodged himself permanently into Liverpool folklore alongside the likes of Alan Hansen and Graeme Souness, who were part of the great Liverpool side in the 1980s. He tops Liverpool’s all-time goal-scorers list, followed by Roger Hunt, Gordon Hodgson and Billy Liddell.Steven Gerrard remains a favourite amongst modern Reds supporters, a born and bred Liverpool fan who stayed at Anfield for the entirety of his footballing career in England. Having broken through the Liverpool academy, Gerrard became the club’s youngest captain at aged 23 and is still hailed as one of England’s most prolific and talented midfielders.Unlike a handful of former Liverpool greats such as Michael Owen, Jamie Carragher and Steve McManaman who supported Everton in childhood, Gerrard grew up a boyhood Liverpool supporter. Gerrard, however, has never lifted a Premier League title.Steven Gerrard Burnley Premier LeagueGerrard has been hailed for his ability as captain to rescue Liverpool from scruff-of-the-neck situations. A skipper who preferred to lead his team by example, his memorable long-range volleys against the likes of Olympiakos and West Ham in crucial moments of knockout competitions were pivotal moments in the club’s success in winning the tournament. His role in the 2005 Champions League final where he scored the first goal against AC Milan to mark the comeback from 3-0 down is one of Gerrard’s greatest moments in a Liverpool shirt.John Barnes and John Aldridge were also formidable players during their time at Liverpool during the late ’80s and early ’90s, both of whom were recruited by Dalglish.In the modern Premier League era, Owen was a revered Kop favourite at Anfield though his reputation amongst Liverpool fans seemed to deteriorate following his controversial transfer to Manchester United in 2009. Alongside the likes of Jamie Redknapp and Robbie Fowler, Owen scored 158 goals for the Reds in 297 appearances and is the only player to have won the Ballon d’Or since 2000.Strikers such as Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez were popular during their years at Anfield before they left for Chelsea and Barcelona, respectively.What trophies have Liverpool won? Jurgen Klopp Liverpool Champions League Winner 06/01/19Liverpool are one of the most successful clubs in England alongside Manchester United. They have won the most Champions League clubs than any other English side, winning their sixth trophy in June 2019 following after defeating Tottenham 2-0 in the final in Madrid, 14 years after they last won the competition.In addition to their 18 top-flight titles, they have won the League Cup a record eight times, last winning the trophy in 2012 after beating Cardiff City through penalty shootout. It is the last trophy that Liverpool have won.The Reds have won the FA Cup on six occasions and were last tournament victors in 2006 against West Ham, where Gerrard scored a memorable long-range strike in stoppage time at 3-2 to send the game into penalties.They have also won three UEFA Super Cups and 15 Community Shields, and one Football League Super Cup.

Valverde: Griezmann needs to get more involved

Posted on by

first_imgBarcelona head coach Ernesto Valverde says Antoine Griezmann has to come into play more following his underwhelming league bow for the La Liga champions.The 28-year-old made his first La Liga appearance for Barca, who suffered a shock 1-0 defeat to Athletic Bilbao in their opening fixture on Friday.A €120 million (£109.5m/$133m) signing from Atletico Madrid, all eyes were on Griezmann, but he struggled to make an impact in absence of captain Lionel Messi, while Luis Suarez’s first-half injury left him isolated. Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? “If he’s near the area, he is decisive and moves well, but you have to dominate the game for that to happen,” Valverde told reporters.”Putting him on the left side, we know that you are going to focus on the goal, but we have a side and players that can hold the game.”Of course, he is aware that we all expect a lot from many players and he has to look to get more into the game.”Suarez left San Mames just after the half-hour mark due to an apparent calf injury away to Athletic.The Uruguayan veteran had to be substituted moments after hitting the post, which would have given two-time reigning champions Barca the lead.Valverde added: “He has a muscular problem and we have to wait for the tests. In the second half, when we were around Athletic’s area, we missed him.”Barca eventually succumbed to Athletic, who triumphed thanks to veteran Aritz Aduriz’s stunning overhead kick in the 89th minute.The 38-year-old made an immediate impact off the bench, meeting Ander Capa’s cross in sensational fashion to seal all three points.”With Aduriz, any ball in the air is a danger and he got his goal,” former Athletic boss Valverde said.”That move is dominant, and he’s scored similar goals. When I saw him line it up… I wasn’t surprised with the execution at all.”Barcelona will have the chance to make amends in their second league match as they host Real Betis at Camp Nou on August 25.While Athletic will be hoping to continue their early season momentum in a August 24 road trip to Getafe.last_img read more

He’d be living in his brother’s footsteps after David Njoku starred for the Hurricanes before heading to the NFL.“After a long talk with my family I have come to a decision to de-commit from the University of Missouri.

Cris Carter Shares Troubling Details About Urban Meyer

Posted on by

first_imgjim harbaugh overratedCris Carter, a former Ohio State wide receiver and a close friend of Urban Meyer, shared some troubling details about the head coach’s health situation while discussing his retirement today.The former NFL wide receiver, who was coached by Meyer at Ohio State, opened up about the head coach’s situation on FOX Sports 1 today.Carter revealed that he thought Meyer shouldn’t have been coaching over the last month of the season. Meyer’s health situation was apparently a serious one.”He wants to coach, but physically he can’t. He can’t do this anymore. Urban Meyer is a good man, and he’s had a tremendous impact on young people.”@criscarter80 on his former WR coach & friend to step down at Ohio State pic.twitter.com/hlqO0eVU9j— First Things First (@FTFonFS1) December 4, 2018Carter went further on Meyer and his issues:“Urban’s a very, very close friend of mine…. His biggest problem is he wants to coach, but physically he can’t coach. He can’t do this anymore.I think it’s been well-documented, as far as the cyst on his brain. When he gets agitated, upset… when he gets in coaching mode, it becomes very to almost impossible for him to coach because the cyst begins to leak fluid, which leads to – not a migraine headache, but a splitting headache.When we saw him double over on the sideline, that was not because of anything else but the cyst and it rupturing. There’s a few things potentially that he could do, he could rest…. The second one is to have a procedure done where they could relieve the pressure [from] the procedure he had done a couple of years ago, but you’re opening up the brain – and that’s not coming with a great deal of encouragement by the specialist who is working on him.And the third thing is what we saw today, was Urban Meyer resigning as the coach at Ohio State.”He continued:“I refused to go to the Michigan game. I went to the Big Ten Championship, and that’s because Urban wanted me there. I thought something else was going to happen on the sideline before we were able to get to this day. Urban Meyer, he really can’t coach. He shouldn’t be coaching, and I would argue that he shouldn’t have been coaching the last month.”Meyer’s final game will come on New Year’s Day. Ohio State is taking on Washington in the Rose Bowl.last_img read more

Chris Fowler Drawing Some Criticism For Urban Meyer Suspension Comments

(Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)Back in August, Ohio State announced that head coach Urban Meyer would be suspended three games for the way he handled allegations of domestic violence against wide receivers coach Zach Smith. Ryan Day, who is now the head-coach-in-waiting, took over and led the Buckeyes to a 3-0 mark during the suspension.Meyer, who announced his retirement a few weeks back, is coaching his final game for Ohio State in the Rose Bowl today against Washington. Meyer cited health reasons as a big factor in his decision to hang it up.Ahead of the game, ESPN announcer Chris Fowler attempted to touch on Meyer’s suspension when describing the head coach’s overall 2018 season. He’s getting some flak for his phrasing.Fowler said that Meyer was suspended for “mishandling some situations” at Ohio State.“Mishandling some situations”is how we’re describing Urban Meyer’s decision to protect his assistant coach who was abusing his wife? Ummmm…#RoseBowl— Jackie Pepper ✊?☮️? (@Jackie_Pepper) January 1, 2019I love Chris Fowler but “mishandling some situations” is a cop out talking about Urban Meyer’s suspension.— Peter Bukowski (@Peter_Bukowski) January 1, 2019Did I hear @cbfowler describing Urban Meyer overlooking and covering up domestic violence as “mishandling some situations”?— Jordan Fiegel (@JGFiegel) January 1, 2019″The embarrassment (for Urban Meyer) of the 3 game suspension for mishandling some situations”Good job, ESPN. That’s the hard-hitting analysis I expect from a broadcast booth— Bob James (@robertjamesii) January 1, 2019Fowler says Urban Meyer was suspended for “mishandling some situations” Yeah, ill say so. The whitewashing begins.— The Young Pope Appreciator (@frogbaby236) January 1, 2019That certainly isn’t wrong, but it’s drawing ire from the internet. Many are wondering why he didn’t note the fact that the situation included alleged domestic violence.Midway through the second quarter, it’s 14-3 Ohio State. Meyer could be on his way out a winner.It’s unclear if Meyer will coach again, but it doesn’t look likely. If he truly is done, he’s one of the best to ever do it.last_img read more
