Five former Louisville players and recruits confirm scandalous book – CBSSports.com

No more should we be surprised when million dollar CEO’s, who are dependent on un-paid labor, do whatever is necessary to get the most skilled, in order to keep their high-paying jobs.  It’s been a joke for to long and it’s still not funny!

More former Louisville basketball players and recruits have reportedly confirmed many details of Katina Powell’s claim in her book that she provided dancers and escorts at the request of a former UL staff member.

#NFL Week 6 Retrospectacle: Stafford-Megatron Stack Highlights Revival Week

Did you miss the Matthew Stafford-Calvin Johnson stacks this season, they’re back! NFL Week 6 was highlighted with the Lions duo scoring a bunch of points.

“Down, but not out.”

That’s what we wrote this past Wednesday about Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, who was coming off being benched for the likes of Dan Orlovsky one game ago. (That is the ultimate fantasy indignity, right?)

Stafford rebounded in Week 6 with 405 yards passing and four touchdowns against a suspect Chicago Bears secondary. His 34.9 points led all quarterbacks. Not too shabby for a mere $6,900 on FanDuel.

“I can’t say it enough that Matt (Stafford) had a hell of a game man,” Lions wide receiver Lance Moore told Jeff Seidel of the Detroit Free Press. “He stood in there, he took some shots, he delivered the ball and guys made plays for him.”

It is NFL Week 6 Retrospectacle proof that sometimes you have to go for the Hail Mary in fantasy (and reality) football. Chucking it up to Calvin Johnson does wonders, as we wrote.

Gonna Fly Now: Inspired Cubs welcome Mets (8 ET, TBS)

Over his managerial career, Joe Maddon has played host to zoo animals, a DJ and a magician, encouraged his players to dress in costume and invoked pop culture in interviews. For his next trick, the Cubs skipper is channeling his inner fighter. After the Cubs dropped Game 2 of the National League Championship Series to the Mets on Sunday in New York, the well-known theme music from the film Rocky could be heard coming from Maddon’s office.

Thursday Week 7 Selections

This is a new section for us, as we have heard your requests for us to provide our insights and thoughts about players in the Thursday game each week.  We haven’t focused on this game, simply because these players aren’t eligible in the main contest each week but there are some great value tournaments that do include these players so here we go.

For this week, we have the 49ers and the Seahawks.  A game that the last couple of years has been an exciting matchup and mostly defensive play.  This year, both teams are struggling and there aren’t too many standouts from a fantasy perspective.  In fact, I suggest that there won’t be a single player in this game that ends up on the winning lineup for the full week $1,000,000 challenge.  That said here are some guys to consider:

  • Garrett Celek – Face it the Seahawks can’t stop the TE position this season, look for him to be a cheap, yet productive play with a projection of 8.6 and a salary of only $2,500.
  • Carlos Hyde – The 49ers will run the ball and Hyde will get all of the work load. He probably cracks the end zone once and gets you a 12.8.
  • Jimmy Graham – The Seahawks have made a concerted effort to get him the ball and he comes off a 100 yard performance. I don’t trust this much but it wouldn’t surprise me to see him go over a 100 yards again without a td this week.

To get all of our full projections just come here for Draftkings and here for FanDuel.

7 Things You Should Read Before Lunch

name of site - hunter thompson style

courtesy of mmc-news.com

1. Score-onto

The Blue Jays, comfortable and eager to get back to the Homer-Dome, did so in electric fashion.  Tulo and Donaldson both hit bombs in a 6-run 3rd inning to blow the game open, and KC made the final score look closer than it was and actually out-hit Toronto.  Aside from the explosion of runs, someone tell me how a player gets ejected BEFORE the top of an inning as Tulo did in the start of the 8th?  When will MLB crack down on these clowns who think they are just as important as the players – NEWSFLASH, you don’t like it when players argue balls and strikes – then call the damn strikezone correctly and stop having different variations per umpire on what bottom of the letters to knees means.

2. 3-3 #SetYourGoals

At one point the Giants had 8:19 left in the game and that was enough time for them to get 3 more 3-and-outs.  This game was so terrible to watch that I began to count the penalties and turnovers – I stopped at 18 and 6.  If you are a Cowboys fan ,you can not be happy, because your while your team has no running back and is beset with injuries – you feel that until Romo comes back you’ll just keep sliding – meanwhile the Eggles are tied for 1st, and that’s really sad.

3. Invictus

We have 5 undefeated teams and at no time has this many teams been unbeaten, this long into a season.  So it got Rob Maaddi thinking over there at the Associated Press and he came up with the idea that Superbowl 50 could feature two undefeated teams.  We should all “friend” Rob in hopes he shares with us, whatever it is he has, because I’d like to see a sky like that in my world just once.

  • GET READY FOR A PAIR OF 18-0 TEAMS IN THE SUPER BOWL – Five teams are undefeated after six weeks so we just might see a team in each conference go 16-0, win two playoff games and face off for the NFL championship in February with history on the line.  You guessed it, it’s overreaction time.  The Patriots (5-0), Bengals (6-0) and Broncos (6-0) are the AFC’s undefeated teams and the Packers (6-0) and Panthers (5-0) are the NFC’s undefeated clubs.  Can one of them run the table……(continue reading)

4. Deadline Deals

You forget that the NFL changed the NFL trade deadline so more teams might make mid-season trades to dominate more and more of the news cycle and make it as exciting as it does for baseball.  Not sure if it has caught on, because until Jason Hirschorn brought it up on Sports On Earth, I had forgot all about it being a possibility.

  • NFL PRE-DEADLINE TRADE CANDIDATES – With more time for teams to figure out whether or not they can contend this season, the prospect of significant deadline trading has increased. According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, “Several NFL executives believe this could be a more fertile trade deadline than normal, with clubs now adjusted to the later deadline and with there being a growing delineation between the haves and the have nots.”……(continue reading)

5. It’s A Matter Of Anti-Trust

TV programming will change – how it is consumed, how it is watched, and how it is paid for.  The reason?  You should not have to pay for things you do not want or will not watch.  I do not care about the Kardashians, or Honey Boo Boo, or any other nonsense that was being paid for in satellite/cable bill – so I dropped it, and until the day arrives where I can pay for what I want to watch then it will be a good day.  Maybe that’s all these guys are complaining about in their lawsuit against the NFL, DIrecTV, CBS, etc…

  • NFL, Networks Hit With Antitrust Lawsuit Over TV Rights – Five plaintiffs who have purchased Sunday Ticket from DirecTV have filed a class action lawsuit against the NFL and its teams, as well as DirecTV, CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC, claiming that exclusive distribution agreements have driven up the cost of pro football telecasts in violation of antitrust law.  The lawsuit, filed on Friday in U.S. District Court in New York, takes aim at NFL Sunday Ticket, calling the distribution agreement “unique among American sports” and claiming that it has enabled the defendants to charge “exorbitant prices,” as much as $359 per season……(continue reading)

6. Moving Day

An interesting point was brought up by Nick Wagoner at ESPN – What if the Rams were denied Los Angeles, would they still move?  Sounds a lot like if a tree falls in the woods.  For the NFL, the are letting the fans of St.Louis, San Diego and Oakland speak at the end of the month – like the NFL gives a damn, but they’ll placate you anyway.  If a team wants to move let them and make them build whatever diaphragm looking structure they want on their own dime.  watching the NFL on TV is better at home anyway and if you’re a fan you can watch YOUR team from any city, so….
