Neymar Should Forget About Barcelona and Take PSG to the Promise Land

There’s rumblings that both club and player are interested in contract extension. Neymar misses Barcelona but sporting project looks stronger in Paris. Upcoming presidential elections only going to make Barcelona more of a risk. Media reports that Neymar is open to extending his contract with PSG seem hard to believe considering his strong desire to leave last summer. When looked at objectively, this move makes a lot of sense. Reuniting with good friends Messi and Suarez under the sun of Barcelona would be a dream on a personal level. In…

Chad Johnson’s Workout Could Persuade Antonio Brown to Rethink the XFL

With each passing Twitter tirade and domestic incident, Antonio Brown’s shot at returning to the NFL gets smaller. But if he could prove he can still play and is capable of behaving in the XFL, maybe the NFL gives him another shot. It might work for former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson. So, why not him? Back in his day, Chad Johnson was one of the best wide receivers in the game. But as the Bengals went downhill, so did his career. While he did move on to another team,…

Mike Vrabel May Not Be as Eager to Win the Super Bowl as You’d Think

With a win over the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday night, Mike Vrabel has the Tennessee Titans within a game of the Super Bowl. Should the Titans get there and win, Vrabel is going to get continuously reminded about something he said he would do to win a Super Bowl. It’s not something any guy is ever willing to do. But it is something jilted significant others like to threaten to do. The ultimate goal for anyone playing, coaching, or otherwise associated with an NFL team is to win the Super…

Is Patriots WR Julian Edelman Starting to Become a Diva?

Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman usually is playing in the AFC title game at this time of year. But after losing last week to the Titans, he has some free time on his hands. Saturday night, he used some of that free time to hang out with Danny Amendola and Paul Pierce at a Mexican restaurant in Beverly Hills, Calif. During the night, for no known reason, he decided to jump onto the hood of someone’s Mercedes—and got arrested. Typically, at this time of year, when the name of Patriots…

The ‘Antonio Brown Curse’ Is 100% Real – But Not for the Reason AB Thinks

Antonio Brown has been associated with five teams this year—the Steelers, Raiders, Bills, Patriots, and Saints. All have been eliminated or failed to make the playoffs, which he chalks up to the “Antonio Brown Curse.” That curse is real, but not for the reason he thinks. Antonio Brown needs to face a few uncomfortable facts if he wants to salvage his NFL career. Chief among these is that football people – fans, players, coaches, and even executives – are a superstitious lot. One thing they do not like is anything…

Isaiah Thomas’ Embarrassing Ejection Tests Limits of Wizards’ Patience

Isaiah Thomas was ejected on Friday for making contact with a ref. Accounts of the incident differ, but video makes what happened clear. Just how much longer will the Wizards put up with Thomas’ behavior? Isaiah Thomas just can’t seem to get out of his own way. After his latest fraught on-court incident once again left him unavailable, it’s clear the veteran guard should be wearing out his welcome with the Washington Wizards. What’s less certain is why coach Scott Brooks and general manager Tommy Sheppard feel the need to…

Why Shaq Is a Much Better Comparison for Giannis Antetokounmpo Than It Seems

Shaquille O’Neal isn’t exactly a fan of the modern NBA. But he’d “love” to play in it. Why? O’Neal draws a direct comparison between himself and the league’s reigning MVP. Shaquille O’Neal knows he would dominate today’s NBA. Like so many retired superstars, he’s wary of the league’s intertwined emphasis on analytics and small ball. Gone are the days of wings isolating again and again with one side of the floor cleared and bigs posting up possession after possession until forcing defenses to double-team. O’Neal longs for the NBA landscape…
