The myth of the student-athlete has been put to rest forever, drowning under tons of cash. From now on, call them athlete-students, as they getting paid right at the table, not under it. It’s taken a couple of years of NCAA bureaucratic missteps and court rulings to bring startling changes to college football, which faces a perfect storm of four factors: Greatly higher TV revenue will force the creation of new all-powerful conferences. A handful of players will be paid millions of dollars. Players may change schools through the transfer portal at any time without having to sit out a year, as before. And the NCAA and college presidents have failed to lead. Remember when boosters had to hide what they were doing, what with handing over cash, cars and/or no-show jobs to help Football University keep its best players? Today, they can openly hand over money to football players and basketball players, plus to athletes from non-revenue-generating sports as long as they … [Read more...] about Opinion: Jim Martin: Has college sports’ amateur hour finally ended?

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell defended the decision to appeal the six-game suspension given to Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson by an independent disciplinary officer last week. Goodell said Tuesday he believed the evidence called for a full-year ban instead of just 33% of the regular season. He said retired Judge Sue L. Robinson was "very clear" about the facts presented in her 16-page report in which she sued "egregious" and "predatory" to describe Watson’s actions. "Because we’ve seen the evidence," Goodell said when asked why the NFL was seeking a longer punishment. "She (Robinson) was very clear about the evidence. She reinforced the evidence, that there was multiple violations here, and they were egregious, and that it was predatory … [Read more...] about Roger Goodell defends Deshaun Watson suspension appeal, cites evidence of ‘predatory behavior’

Denver Post sports writer Patrick Saunders with the latest installment of his Rockies Mailbag. Good day, Patrick. I guess “they are who we thought they were” applies to most Rockies fans without rose-colored glasses. You detailed the players’ contracts , but where do Bud Black and his coaching staff stand? He can only play those on a roster Bill Schmidt handed him. At what point does (Black) tire of this struggle? — Robert Emmerling, Limon Black signed a one-year extension during spring training and his contract runs through the 2023 season. Major league coaching staffs often change at the end of the season, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see some turnover this fall. I think Black’s job is safe through the length of his contract unless the Rockies completely implode. By that, I mean losing a dozen games in a row or finishing with 100 losses for the first time in franchise history. From everything I know, Schmidt and Black have a solid working relationship. If the … [Read more...] about Rockies Mailbag: What’s Bud Black’s future? What do players think about opposing fans packing Coors Field?

Click here to read the full article. A League of Their Own is a pretty darn perfect movie. The Penny Marshall-directed film from 1992, about the women recruited to play professional baseball while so many men were off fighting World War II, is a crackerjack sports movie, a winning ensemble comedy, and a well-hit drama about female empowerment in an era when the concept seemed utterly foreign. It’s got all-star performances by Geena Davis, Tom Hanks (it’s the role that kicked off his Hall of Fame run in the Nineties), Madonna (never better as an actor), and more. 10 out of 10. No notes. Amazon’s new A League of Their Own TV series has many notes. It is, on the one hand, clearly adoring of the movie, frequently quoting various lines, images, and scenes from it 30 years later. And on the other hand, it is an attempt to cover many subjects — particularly regarding race and sexuality — that the movie didn’t, or in some cases couldn’t.
