Sleeping fan at Super Bowl 54 identified as Clinton-linked consultant CEO

  • NFL Chiefs v 49ers 49ers Chiefs American Football

    The Super Bowl is the most exciting annual sporting event in the United States — but for one fan, the excitement appeared to be a little too much.

    During the first quarter of the 49ers game against the Chiefs, video of a fan taking a nap in the stands at Hard Rock Stadium quickly went viral on social media.

    That's a pretty expensive nap. Earlier this week, the average price for a Super Bowl ticket on StubHub was $6,414 while the cheapest ticket was being sold for $4,975.

    UPDATE: The man has been identified as Declan Kelly, who is a consulting CEO with ties to Hillary and Bill Clinton.

    Twitter had a lot to say about Kelly — including his likeness to Andrew Bernard from NBC's TV series "The Office," played by Ed Helms.

    Former running back Thomas Jones blasts 'dumbass' players who didn't vote on NFL CBA

  • NFL American Football

    Thomas Jones still hits hard. Just on Twitter, not the field.

    The new NFL CBA was passed on Sunday by a slim, slim margin of 60 votes (1019 to 959). Ravens defensive back Marlon Humphrey pointed out that there were roughly 500 players who didn't vote on the new CBA.

    This caught the eye of Jones, who played for the Bears, Jets and Chiefs; he tore into players who didn't cast a vote on Sunday.

    "If you're one of the 500 NFL player dumbasses too sorry & uninformed about your own damn livelihood to vote on the new CBA you should be slapped repeatedly....." the Tweet reads. (The five periods really hammer the point home. Also, credit to Jones for taking the time to find the ampersand on the keyboard).

    Jones has something of a point here, even if it is a bit harsh: Voting for the new CBA was publi夜网论坛cly contentious, as several big-name players took to social media, urging players to vote no on the proposal. Aaron Rodgers, J.J. Watt, Russell Wilson, Maurkice Pouncey and others have voiced displeasure over the proposal prior to its passing.

    What channel is Ravens vs. Texans on today? Time, TV schedule for Week 2 NFL game

  • NFL Texans v Ravens Texans Ravens American Football

    How does Houston get to recover a week removed from a convincing loss versus the best quarterback in the NFL? By playing the reigning MVP Lamar Jackson and a high-powered Baltimore team fresh off a blowout win of Cleveland in Week 1.

    The Texans (0-1) fell 34-20 to Kansas City in the opening game of the 2020 NFL season in a fashion not nearly as close as the score may suggest. The seat is already warm for coach Bill O'Brien who is facing tremendous backlash for several of his roster decisions that included trading star夜网论坛 wideout DeAndre Hopkins to Arizona (Hopkins had 14 catches for 151 yards in Week 1). David Johnson, who the Texans received in return for Hopkins, did have an impact on last week's game with 11 carries for 77 yards and a touchdown, to go with three catches for 32 yards.

    The Ravens (1-0) picked up right where they left off last year's regular season performance, silencing the Browns hype in 38-6 fashion. First-round draft pick Patrick Queen made a splashy performance with a team-high eight tackles, incl[......]


    Marty Schottenheimer leaves winning legacy that deserves Hall of Fame nod

  • NFL American Football Chiefs Washington Football Team Chargers Browns

    Marty Schottenheimer never won a Super Bowl, but he didn't have too. He'll always be a remembered as a winner. 

    Schottenheimer, 77, died Tuesday after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s disease. He won with a "one play at a time" philosophy that led to 200 regular-season wins — eighth most all time among NFL coaches.  

    That legacy is under-valued in retrospect, and one that will need further examination from the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    Schottenheimer belongs in the Hall of Fame based on a colorful career that stretched over three decades and four teams in the Super bowl era. He accomplished that with a detail-oriented style complete and a knack for getting the most out of his players. He had a playbook full of motivational speeches — none more popular than "The Gleam."  

    Aaron Rodgers contract: Packers working on restructuring superstar quarterback's deal

  • NFL P夜网论坛ackers American Football

    Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are working on a discount double-check.

    According to NFL Network's Mike Silver, the Packers are working on restructuring Rodgers' deal, though the details of the restructure are a bit murky.

    A restructured deal would give Rodgers and the Packers a bit more cap money to work with this year, but until the details of the new contract are revealed, there's a big ol' question mark in the way of what that could mean for the team for now and in the coming years.

    Dolphins schedule 2021: Dates & times for all 17 games, strength of schedule, final record prediction

  • NFL Dolphins American Football

    Few people had the Dolphins pegged as a potential playoff team last year, but in Week 17 of the 2020 NFL season, they had a win-and-in postseason scenario. All they had to do was beat the Bills in Week 17, and they would be playing as a wild-card team in the AFC playoffs.

    That didn't ultimately come to fruition. In fact, the team gave up 56 points in what was, arguably, their worst game of the season and what was, definitely, Tua Tagovailoa's worst game. Still, the fact that Miami was playing for a postseason berth just a year after having a top-five pick and two years after firing Adam Gase is a big achievement.

    Now, Flores will look to take the Dolphins to the next level and get them back to the postsea夜网论坛son. Unlike their other highly-rated AFC East counterparts, the Dolphins' schedule doesn't look too tough on paper. Matchups with Lamar Jackson, Matt Ryan, Tom Brady and Trevor Lawrence could test the defense, but the Dolphins are already strong on that side of the ball. It's more about whether their offense can live up to the expectations; they're finally not the loveable, punchy underdogs anymore.

    Here is a complete breakdown of the Dolphins’ 2021 schedule, including dates, start times and analysis for all 17 game[......]


    T.J. Ward sparks outrage with since-deleted tweets about cancer survivor Ron Rivera

  • NFL Washington Football Team American Football

    T.J. Ward found himself in hot water Wednesday morning after some comments he made on Twitter about Washington Football Team coach Ron Rivera. The former Browns, Broncos and Buccaneers safety weighed in on Rivera being "beyond frustrated" that so many Washington players remain unvaccinated.

    Per The Washington Post, Washington ranks last in vaccination status league-wide as of Monday at 60 percent. This matters greatly to Rivera, as he is immune deficient after cancer treatments he received while dealing with a squamous cell carcinoma during last season.

    Still, Ward apparently took issue with Rivera's frustration and fired off a few since-deleted tweets in response to the post.

    The first one read: "Just park the Riverboat. His health is beyond that of COVID. Maybe it's just time to let go."

    The second read: "Don't blame the players for your lifelong health decisions."

    His third tweet — the worst of all — seemed to imply that Rivera was responsible for getting cancer.

    Bears name Andy Dalton starter over Justin Fields despite boos, mixed results

  • NFL Bears American Football

    At least one of the five quarterbacks selected in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft will begin his NFL career on the sidelines.

    Bears coach Matt Nagy confirmed Tuesday morning that three-time Pro Bowl夜网论坛 quarterback Andy Dalton will start Week 1 for the team's season-opening matchup against the Rams on Sept. 12 instead of this year's eighth overall pick Justin Fields from Ohio State.

    Dalton is 13-for-21 with 164 yards and a touchdown and interception apiece so far in two games this preseason.

    The Texas Christian grad comandeered a fairly lifeless Bears offense which only put up six points in the first half and got outscored 34-6 in the half in a game where Chicago got routed 41-15 by the Bills.

    To make matters worse for the former Bengals starter, Chicago fans made their displeasure with Dalton's performance known, booing him as he came off the field with the Bears down 28-0 at one point in the first half.

    What time is the NFL game tonight? TV schedule, channel for Ravens vs. Raiders in Week 1

  • NFL Raiders v Ravens Raiders Ravens American Football

    It used to be that "Monday Night Football" always started at the same time during the NFL season with the exception of Week 1. However, things will be uniform throughout the 2021 season.

    The NFL will not be hosting a Monday night doubleheader for the first time since 2006. Instead of airing an early game at 7:10 p.m. ET and a late game at 10:15 p.m. ET, ESPN will air just one, which will begin at 8:15 p.m. ET.

    The contest will feature a playoff team from last year — the Ravens — and the Raiders, a team that is looking to make the playoffs for the first time in Jon Gruden's second stint with the team.

    The game should be an interesting one. The Ravens have the advantage personnel-wise, but the Raiders are playing in front of fans for the first time in Las Vegas. That could give them a boost as they look to pull off the upset.

    Below is all the info you need to watch Ravens vs. Raiders on Monday night in Week 1, including the start time and ways to stream it.

    NBA free agency: Cavs to reunite Mike Miller with LeBron

  • NBA

    CLEVELAND — Mike Miller had choices. None of them was better than playing with LeBron James again.

    Miller has agreed to a $5.5 million, two-year contract with the Cavaliers, re-uniting the sharpshooting forward with James, his former teammate in Miami. Miller's contract includes a player option in the second year, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.

    The person spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the deal is not yet signed. Miller will make $2.7 million next season, and the option is worth $2.8 million, the person said.

    The 34-year-old Miller also was coveted by Dallas and Denver. But the chance to play alongside James was enough to send him to Cleveland. Miller and James played together with the Heat for three seasons, winning two NBA titles. Miller reportedly had a three-year offer from the Mavericks.

    Last season, Miller played in 82 games — the most since his rookie season — for Memphis. He shot 46 percent (107 of 233) on 3-pointers and averaged 7.1 points and 2.5 rebounds.

    After agreeing to the deal, Miller posted a message on his Instagram account, thanking Grizzlies fans and acknowledging James.

    "Thanks to Memphis for a great year!!" Miller wrote. "But I'm so excited to be a part of the Cleveland family and their fans. The only thing you can expect from me is everything I have! So excited to reunite with u my brother! I know I don't eve[......]
