Raiders Stadium Backers To Las Vegas: Give Us $750 Million, Or Else: ... Rich old baby Mark Davis, truly evil plutocrat Sheldon Adelson, and Las Vegasís scummy sheen have all combined to create one of the most abhorrent cast of characters weíve ever seen attached to a stadium financing project. If anyone can finally convince American sports fans and politicians that publicly funded stadiums are a massive scam, itís these goons.

The Indian Premier League returns tomorrow, April 8th.: Like cherry blossoms in Japan every spring, the arrival of IPL is eagerly awaited by many. The colours are more garish, the scene anything but peaceful. Administrators are averse to halting the cricketing treadmill and so, this year, the IPL starts just six days after the World T20. The players might want rest, but they cannot afford to ask for time off because millions are at stake. And so IPL 9 begins on Saturday in Mumbai.

March Madness 2016: Printable NCAA tournament bracket: Well, actually, the printable version of the bracket is here. The ACC has two #1 seeds this year, Carolina (who won the ACC tournament for the first time since 2008) and Virginia (who lost to Carolina in the ACC championship game). The other two #1s are Oregon and Kansas. I set up a bracket group here. Group name: SportsFilter. Password: 1SpoFi!

Les Miles out at LSU

But what happens if Bobby Petrino is able to keep his dumbassery under wraps in Louisville? I mean, have you seen what he's done over there with that program? Or has he been hit with the SEC banhammer?

SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle

The thought occurred to me that while all other broadcasters use a color commentator, Scully works alone.

Chuck Kaiton, the radio play by play guy for the Hurricanes, works alone. I love hearing just him during the game play. On the TV side, the 'Canes have John Forslund calling the action, who I like, but they have the awful Tripp Tracy as his color guy. Makes me appreciate Chuck and the letter K working alone all the more.

Thank goodness no.

In other bad idea news: one of the frozen pizza brands sponsored an NFL post that featured Cam Newton getting picked off during either last week's game or during the Super Bowl. I'm in North Carolina, man! Doesn't twitter allow gelocation ads? Dumb.
