When Philadelphia 76ers owner Peter Luukko extended a one-year, non-guaranteed offer to the week-long retiree Allen Iverson, he called the move an "absolutely, strictly a basketball decision."

The football results were horrible again as the Washington Redskins fought their way, literally, to their... Read More

Approaching one week after former Houston Oiler and Tennessee Titan quarterback Steve McNair was found shot to death in a rented downtown Nashville condominium, fans and media alike are still grieving over what they would have you believe is an absolute tragedy in the sporting world -- a beloved, all-American football player who was active in the community with various charities and volunteer organizations gunned down in a selfless act of apparent murder-suicide. A married man only in his 30s – the father of four young boys – killed for no visible reason, no evident logic, and no... Read More
