  • Tim Tebow

    At the risk of enraging his true believer fanatics, let me repeat the conclusion of nearly every professional scout who ever rated the young quarterback: Tebow is not skilled in the art of passing. His ability to read a defense is suspect. His mechanics are inefficient. His accuracy is lacking. He hasn't demonstrated an ability to hit a moving target. But those aren't the real problems with Tebow.

  • AriZona's Arnold Palmer Brand Aiming To Top Snapple Friday, 9 Dec 2011 | 1:09 PM ET

    Arnold Palmer has a lot to smile about these days, but what he lights up the most about is the success of his drink combination. In the 1950's, Arnold Palmer starting mixing his lemonade and iced tea. But the breakthrough that turned what is otherwise called Half & Half, came in at a restaurant in Palm Springs, Calif., years later.  AriZona's Palmer sales will top $150 million this year and, with the brand growing 50 percent a year, it figures to pass Snapple's tea sales next year.

    Chris Paul

    On Thursday night, word swirled around the Twitterverse that Chris Paul could be on his way to the Lakers in a trade with the Rockets and the Hornets. At best, the Hornets get a couple of starters and a draft pick. At worst? An all out PR disaster for the league within minutes of ratifying its 10-year Collective Bargaining Agreement with the players.

    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.

  • green-bay-stock-certificate-300.jpg

    The Green Bay Packers are literally printing cash. The thus far undefeated and reigning Super Bowl champions are selling stock for the fifth time in their history today. The shares are said to have an actual value of about 3 cents, but the Packers are selling them for $250 each. It offers almost no benefits other than a place at the annual meeting and a piece of paper proving that you're an owner. The shares haven't been approved by the SEC, don't appreciate and won't move you up the season ticket waiting list. So why do the Packers do this?

  • 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.

  • The NFL’s 10 Most Underpaid Players Friday, 18 Nov 2011 | 12:50 PM ET
    With the 2011 NFL season halfway over, the first 10 weeks have been marked by injuries, disappointments but also breakout performances. Of this year’s breakout players, many have only been in the league for a few seasons, and for these elite players their current contracts may be working against them. Although these premier players may not be making all-star salaries, when it comes time for them to negotiate a new contract, you can expect that their compensation will be more in line with their a

  • What Do NCAA Financial Statements Show Us? Thursday, 17 Nov 2011 | 11:08 AM ET

    Last night, Deadspin posted what it said was five years of NCAA financials that had been mistakenly posted on its Web site. I figured you didn't want to review them all, so I did it for you. For its part, an NCAA spokesman did not respond to an e-mail questioning the veracity of the documents, but they certainly look like they were really audited by KPMG & Deloitte.
