The New York Knicks Continue To Fill Their Big Baby Diapers With Poo Over NY Daily News Reports

After the New York Daily News published an astonishing but routinely reported story on New York Knicks owner James Dolan’s ongoing and legally protracted feud with Clippers owner Steve Ballmer and the city of Inglewood—which concerns Ballmer’s proposed new arena and how it would compete with an existing arena in the city that Dolan owns—the Knicks once again threw an embarrassing hissy fit....

The Best Way For Jeffrey Goldberg To Help Diverse Journalists Would Be To Quit His Job

On Thursday, Nieman Lab published a friendly discussion with The Atlantic’s editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg and the magazine’s recently promoted executive editor Adrienne LaFrance, in which they addressed the great progress The Atlantic has made in adding women to its staff. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your perspective) for what should have been a relatively puffy piece about...

Competitive Musical Chairs Is New York's Friendliest Contact Sport

While holding up the remains of a wooden chair that had just been smashed to pieces, a woman yelled, “I got a splinter in my butt!” A referee wearing black and white stripes hustled over with a new chair and placed it on the grass, reconstituting the circle of chairs that was just broken.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Is On Twitter, And He's Got Sports Takes

If you read about the French Open’s plan to change its dress code, all because Serena Williams wore a catsuit at the tournament this year, and thought, Hmm I wonder what former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad thinks about this, well, now you know.

Well, sort of—whatever tortured point he’s trying to make about women having the freedom to wear what they want falls pretty flat...

Have you seen some cryptic and not-so-cryptic tweets and subtweets from some sports bloggers about who invented the special and not-at-all generic idea of comparing NBA teams to TV shows and movies? Are you wondering who first came up with this innovative and original idea that nobody else could have thought of? Would you like to know why anyone would fight over something like this?

Reports: NFL Really Fucking Botched The Kareem Hunt Investigation [Update]

Within two days after TMZ published a video showing Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt shoving and kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel in February, it already is becoming clear that the NFL failed to adequately investigate the incident—reportedly by not speaking to Hunt, not speaking to the woman in question, and telling the Chiefs to stop pursuing the video from the hotel.

Spain Could Very Well End Up Winning The World Cup Again

Spain Could Very Well End Up Winning The World Cup Again

Spain, it appears, are back. The team that won three international titles in a span of four years (the 2008 and 2012 Euros, and the 2010 World Cup), and then followed it up by crashing out of the 2014 World Cup in the group stage and losing to Italy in the round of 16 in the 2016 European Championship, looks poised to return to its former glory. Though their World Cup qualifying path wasn’t...

Dolan went on The Michael Kay Show today to address an incident on Saturday in which he demanded a Knicks fan be thrown out of the arena after the fan told Dolan to “sell the team.” Per Newsday, Dolan addressed the incident, saying:

The New York Times publishing public-relations material serving the interests of Justin Gimelstob—a powerful figure in tennis whose conduct has over the years ranged from overtly misogynistic to violent and deranged, and who most recently made news by pleading no contest to charges that he hit a man in the head dozens of times in front of that man’s wife and 2-year-old child—would in any...

Everyone Fell For Robert Kraft's "Apology" 

In a vague and carefully worded statement that sounds like a mea culpa but is decidedly not, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft today made his first public comments since he was charged last month with two counts of solicitation in connection with a prostitution sting in Florida.

Kraft’s statement (which, understandably, reads as if it was crafted by a team of lawyers) skated over the...
