Who has retired recently to produce that stat? The Kings haven’t been in the playoffs since 2006. 😂

Nothing surprises me anymore. The FBI knew that Larry Nassar was sexually assaulting gymnasts in his care at least two years before the women came forward.

So Deshaun Watson being an athlete and serving a small suspension after what he’s done, shouldn’t surprise anyone.

Don't get me started on the NFL/Goodell and their pathetic persecution of Tom Brady over deflategate, cause the Colts and Ravens were salty AF they got beaten by a better team in the playoffs legitimately and snitched.

Hope this two bum franchises never make the Superbowl again

Probably the greatest Baseball Commentator of all time.



Damn another legend gone.

You may or may not know this, but Chris Carter, creator of the X-Files named the female hero of the Show after the Legendary Dodgers MLB commentator (Dana Scully)

Probably my favourite female sci-fi/genre character ever. Gillian Anderson is still really sexy and awesome to this day

PED's are back.....



Holy s**t! 😳

Tatis Jr is one of the last players I would have expected to be suspended for PED’s. He does say in his statement that he inadvertently took a medication that contained the banned substance. I am guessing that he forfeits his pay until the day he can return and then his contract gets restarted?

Pretty easy to hang s**t on Golfers like Cam Smith to take the bag for the Saudi tour, but for that kind of money everyone else in the same situation would have taken it (anyone who says otherwise is either a liar or a moron)

Pretty easy to go on Sportswashing rants/tirades when almost every sport globally with some kind of sponsor (especially kit and footwear) has some kind of human rights violations with it.

I am over this so called Sportswashing whinging, it's pointless and extremely annoying.

I am happy to see most of the Football Community is finally getting around to and embracing the World Cup in Qatar (aside from one former German snowflake, which is pretty rich coming from him, given his nation's toxic and bloody crimes against humanity)

Yep he won't earn any money until he's back playing which is 42 games into next season.

He still has 13 years $335M left on his deal.
