  • Donald Trump used money donated for charity to buy himself a Tim Tebow-signed football helmet

    Did Donald Trump violate IRS rules, by using a charity's money to buy himself a signed football helmet? Four years ago, at a charity fundraiser in Palm Beach, Donald Trump got into a bidding war at the evening's live auction. The items up for sale: A Denver Broncos helmet, autographed by then-star quarterback Tim Tebow, and a Tebow jersey. Trump won, eventually, with a bid of $12,000. Afterward, he posed with the helmet. His purchase made gossip-column news: a flourish of generosity, by a mogul with money to burn. "The Donald giveth, and The Donald payeth," wrote the Palm Beach...

    Pete Coors and Mike Shanahan, a pair of giants in Colorado beer and football, are two of several boldfaced names planning a Friday fundraiser for Donald Trump to coincide with the Republican candidates visit to the state that day for the Western Conservative Summit. While the names on the host committee may suggest a Sunday-tailgate kind of affair Coors is a longtime beer executive and Shanahan used to coach the Denver Broncos the entry fee to the presidential fundraiser is decidedly more expensive than what one would find in the parking lot of Mile High stadium.

    Quarterback great Peyton Manning is expected to announce his retirement within a week, the Denver Post reported on Saturday. The newspaper reported that after meeting recently with Denver Broncos general manager John Elway, "Manning is certain" the time has come to call it a day. Manning helped the Denver Broncos defeat the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl earlier this month. The victory was his second National Football League championship in a storied career in which he was named the leagues Most Valuable Player five times in 17 seasons

    Shortly after Super Bowl 50 ended with a humiliating defeat for the heavily-favored Carolina Panthers, led by quarterback Cam Newton, Newton and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning shook hands on the field and exchanged greetings and comments, with Manning (who has suffered his own humiliating losses in previous Super Bowls) offering encouragement, then each went his own way. Unfortunately for Newton, he later would have an infamous press conference in which he showed up wearing a "hoodie," mumbled some answers to questions, and then would walk out after three minutes, leaving the press astonished. Not surprisingly, the sports media jumped...

    A national women's group is urging companies that sponsor Peyton Manning to cut ties with the Broncos quarterback. UltraViolet, a group made up of over 700,000 people, specifically called out Papa John's and Nationwide Insurance as two companies that should suspend ties with Manning immediately. The group would also like the NFL to investigate the 1996 incident at the University of Tennessee that took place between Manning and former Volunteers trainer Jamie Naughright.

    MARK SANCHEZ will get the start tomorrow in the preseason opener against the Colts, but Eagles coach Chip Kelly cautioned that Sanchez probably will take only a handful of snaps. The bulk of the quarterbacking will be done by Matt Barkley and Tim Tebow, who would seem to be fighting for a single roster spot as the Eagles' third QB. "I want to see what happens with those guys," Kelly said.

    Anyone looking for a storybook ending to one of the most celebrated active NFL careers in the league had to think it was coming. Peyton Manning, buoyed by a dominant defense, had finally returned to the winner’s platform in a Super Bowl at 39 years of age, the oldest starting quarterback in all 50 Super Bowls. All that would be necessary would be two simple words: “I’m retiring.”Sorry, storybook fans. Manning couldn’t quite say it — not even after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell all but announced it moments before Manning took the microphone on stage: It certainly sounds as...

There were ghastly terror attacks and devastating civil wars, floods of refugees and acts of unspeakable cruelty. Airliners were blown out of the sky. Priceless antiquities were destroyed. Politics seethed with incivility.

    This morning fake black guy Shaun King -- he's white but has been pretending to be black for nearly forty years -- decided to write about Peyton Manning mooning and teabagging a trainer twenty years ago. His motive to do so was, predictably, racist. He believed Cam Newton had been treated unfairly in the wake of the Super Bowl so he decided to take a page from the political handbook of PC bros everywhere and write an old story about Peyton Manning in an effort to try to turn it into a new story.

It's a good thing that the Levi's Stadium grounds crew has two weeks to prepare for the Feb. 7 contest, because it goofed on its end zone paint jobs over the weekend. Multiple reporters and media outlets snapped pictures of the snafu, which featured the Denver Broncos logo and team name painted in both end zones. One of those end zones belongs to the Carolina Panthers. Luckily, the grounds crew eventually caught the...

"I'm an African-American quarterback that scares people because they haven't seen nothing that they can compare me to," said the 6-foot-5, 245-pound Newton. The No. 1 pick in the 2011 NFL draft out of Auburn, Newton has his share of detractors who either don't like how he plays, his celebrations or his abundance of self-confidence.

    It is starting to look like Peyton Manning may never step onto the field as a starting quarterback of the Denver Broncos again. Personally, I was on the fence with this line of thinking holding out hope Manning would somehow erase the last year and return to form. However, by moving to Brock Osweiler, it's becoming clear that coming back to Manning isn't likely. An excellent insider piece on ESPN written by Mike Sando hammered this point home with several interviews from NFL executives and evaluators around the league, which paints a portrait of where John Elway's mindset is during...

But it's a different kind of high for the Denver Broncos quarterback, who credits legal pot with booming sales at his Papa John's pizza franchises. Manning purchased 21 Papa John's locations statewide shortly before voters passed Colorado Amendment 64 in late 2012, and he's been raking in the money ever since.

    Denver Broncos team owner Pat Bowlen is steeping down from day-to-day operations because he is battling Alzheimer's Disease ... The Broncos said Bowlen had already been reducing his role in recent years while he was, "courageously and privately battling Alzheimers disease." "The Broncos are very saddened that Mr. Bowlen is no longer able to be part of the teams daily operations due to his condition," the team said on its website. "We continue to offer our full support, compassion and respect to Mr. B, who has faced Alzheimers disease with such dignity and strength." Team president Joe Ellis will assume...

    Nathaniel Wentz is a 17-year-old kid who plays quarterback for his high school football team. He also works well, he used to work during his free time. Why did we say he used to work? Because he was fired from his gig at Odyssey 1 family entertainment center in Tacoma, Washington after he wore a Broncos jersey to work last Sunday. Why was he wearing a Broncos jersey? Because his boss told employees that they could wear jerseys of their favorite teams to work since it was the day of the AFC and NFC Championship Games. Wentz's manager...

    "Omaha" versus "You mad, bro?" Super Bowl XLVIII between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks is setting up to be a classic contest in which the surgical Peyton Manning will try to perhaps cap off his career and legacy against the brash--and best (ask Richard Sherman)--Seattle secondary that has smothered the league's best wide receivers all season long. Simply put, the league's top offense (Denver) will face the league's top defense (Seattle). Something has to give.
  • Peyton Manning, Broncos rip Patriots to reach Super Bowl

    DENVER -- Peyton Manning had an answer for everyone. What's new? For Tom Brady. For the New England defense. For anyone who thought he couldn't win the big one. Manning is taking the Denver Broncos on a trip to New York for the Super Bowl after another of his impeccably crafted victories -- this time, a 26-16 win over the Patriots on Sunday in the AFC title game.

    Game between Broncos and the mis-named Patriots, from leftist Boston, is about to start. Living in Colorado I will be rooting for Manning against reported liberal Brady. Just knowing that John F'n Kerry will be rooting for his "Patriots" makes me want the Broncos to win even more. Who are other FReeper football fans rooting for?
  • Trading for Tim Tebow was a mistake, former Jets GM now says

    Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Former Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum, the man who traded for Tim Tebow, is now looking back on his career in New York. He's expressing some regrets, and guess who's right at the top? "Obviously we made a couple mistakes," Tannenbaum told CBS Sports Radio, "trading for Tim Tebow most notably." The Jets dealt a fourth- and sixth-round pick to Denver to get Tebow in March 2012, and then proceeded to use him in no discernibly logical fashion whatsoever.
