NBA is all about the stars; you go as far as your best players can take you. I'm not sure there is any incentive you can offer a genuine contender (Cavs, GS, Spurs) to keep their stars on the court if the team thinks their stars could use a night off.

As an Arsenal fan I would like to keep Wenger just to piss off Piers Morgan. Its a price worth paying.

1) Osweiler managed to beat the Pats when he was a Bronco
Can we change that to "Osweiler didn't completely screw it up for the defence against the Pats as a Bronco"?

I also think the Super Bowl should be played in the previous year's winner's home stadium. Imagine a Lambeau Field Super Bowl
So the most likely matchups this year would be the Pats or Raiders playing the Cowboys or Seahawks at Mile High?
Broncos fans would just love that.

I wouldn't be surprised if Tebow got a look from some club that put him at Triple-A to see what he could do.
Tebow playing even one game at AAA level would be the most ridiculous major sporting publicity stunt I have ever seen. Elite college players take 3 years of pro ball to get to AAA and you think Teebs has a shot when he hasn't played in anger since high school 11 years ago?

So is this limited to taunting, punching a player and insulting officials or am I reading this wrong?
For reference I went back to a recent series of penalties from one player and checked if Aqib Talib would've been tossed from the SB. Nope - he had one taunting penalty in the 1st Q and then was good the rest of the way, the intentional facemask wouldn't add to the total. This Broncos fan doesn't mind that but wonders what this will achieve.
They've made this easy for the officials by limiting it to after-the-play penalties rather than anything called in the heat of the moment. Honestly I don't see too much in this, unless you completely lose the plot like Beckham nothing happens.

Not enough love for Terrell Davis. 30 for 157 and 3 TDs in 3 quarters when nothing was working for the passing game. Lining up as a decoy in the 2nd quarter when he couldn't focus enough to see the ball due to a migraine. Should be top 5.
Best playoff RB ever and it truly isn't even close.

Stat of the game: Brady took more QB hits today than any other QB in any game all season. He was hit 11 times more than the previous high allowed by the Pats this year.
The Broncos DL flat-out abused the Pats OL.

Toronto should not be handing out the largest pitching contract in history.
David Price is not worth the largest pitching contract in history.
Boston are not one starting pitcher away from relevance.

I'm not sure how the Gronk OPI could be considered questionable. He ran straight at a backpedalling DB, initiated contact about 5 yards downfield by hitting the defender's chest/shoulders with his left forearm then cut hard right while he straightened his left arm to hold him off.
Historically not called often but pretty clearly OPI.

I'm upset about the state of cricket in the WI, its a tragedy and I can't see any way to fix it in the short term. For thirty years the WI teams were the gold standard in tests, now they're somewhere south of NZ.

Glenn Maxwell takes a great catch on the boundary in the 4th ODI at Headingley.

...at the Kia Oval.
Naming rights don't usually bother me but that looks so wrong. It's still Lords, Eden Gardens and the MCG, right?
