    Albert Pujols

    What do athletes owe the fans? That's the question many in St. Louis are asking today. Some fans think it's delivering the goods and boy has Albert Pujols done that.  But some fans think that they're owed eternal loyalty. That's not fair.  It's not fair to LeBron James and it's not fair to Albert Pujols. Athletes deserve to go somewhere to get more money and they deserve to go somewhere where they think they can better win a title.

  • NBA's Revenue Sharing Still Won't Be Good Enough Friday, 2 Dec 2011 | 4:01 PM ET
    NBA Lockout

    The majority of fans think the NBA owners prevailed at the end of the lockout. They got most of their season and they cut out $300 million in player revenues each year, which is the equivalent of how much the league's teams say that they collectively lost last year. But the real fight wasn't between the owners and the players. The real fight was between the owners themselves and it still hasn't been resolved.

  • NBA Lockout

    After a marathon bargaining session yesterday that ended in the wee morning hours, NBA commissioner David Stern and union president Derek Fisher emerged with a cautiously optimistic outlook. One of the reasons why is because the players get their last check on Monday and, suffice it to say, there's quite a few that need those checks to arrive in the near future. Let's give a little lesson in how NBA paychecks work.

  • Paid Tweets are a Gray Area for Athletes and Celebrities Wednesday, 26 Oct 2011 | 1:57 PM ET

    Earlier this month, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick tweeted: "Check these prizes from the McDonald's monopoly game," and included a link.

    Last night, as it became apparent that the first two weeks of the NBA season would be canceled, I asked regular folks on Twitter if they could tell their own personal stories about what the continued lockout would mean to them.

    Before last season, LeBron James decided to opt out of the wall graphic category that is included as part of each NBA player's group licensing agreement. James had a deal with a company to make wall graphics of him, though that company couldn't use NBA marks since the official rights to league marks were exclusive to Fathead.
