    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.

  • 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.

  • Extreme Sports Costs Wednesday, 16 Nov 2011 | 9:23 AM ET
    When it comes to separating the rational from the reckless, few activities draw a line in the sand quite like extreme sports. Do you think you’re an extreme sports practitioner just because you grunt loudly when you hit a tennis ball? Well, try jumping off a 1,000-foot-tall cell phone tower with only seconds to deploy your parachute, or leaping from an airplane for a little wingsuit flying. Your attitude is likely to change.For those who participate in these sports, laughing in the face of death

    People participating in extreme sports can spend anywhere from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands. What are the costs associated with extreme sports?

  • Joe Paterno

    The argument has been made every year: Joe Paterno should step down for the future of Penn State football. But for every bad year, as the hot seat got hotter, JoePa seemingly came back with a better season. But, after the sexual assault scandal, there's no argument to be made that things will get better for Paterno. His great contribution to the school in time and financially, perhaps more than any coach has done in history, no longer applies.

    In the last four days, Penn State officials have been getting crushed by the media and by fans for their handling of charges of sexual assault allegations that inexplicably reached a dead end without being reported. How is this possible? How can the state be working on a two-year investigation and Spanier and Paterno, in their first public comments, act as if they were blindsided?

  • Does Fox Have To Buy The Dodgers Again? Wednesday, 2 Nov 2011 | 2:16 PM ET
    LA Dodgers

    Early this morning, Major League Baseball and Frank McCourt issued a joint statement saying that they agreed to recommend to the bankruptcy court to hold an auction for the sale of the Dodgers. When prospective owners are bandied about, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban comes up first, because he's a fan's owner and he has the cash. But Cuban told the LA Times yesterday that he wouldn't be interested in the team if the price was over $1 billion. Who else gets in? I think Fox, which sold the team, stadium and parking lots to McCourt for $421 million in 2004, could -- and might have to -- throw its name in the hat again.

  • 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.
