    CHESTER, Pa. (CBS) — Incarcerated rapper Meek Mill is getting big-time support in his fight for justice. The hip-hop artist is receiving a high profile visit in prison as he awaits a bail ruling from Pennsylvania’s highest court. New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin entered the doors at the medium-security state prison in Chester on Tuesday afternoon.

    Students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were flown to Washington, D.C., on Thursday on the New England Patriots' official plane ahead of Saturday's March for Our Lives. The Boston Globe reported Friday that team owner Robert Kraft sent the plane to fly survivors and the families of victims of the Feb. 14 shooting in Parkland, Fla., to the nation's capital. Kraft's decision came at the behest of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) and her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, the Globe

    Agent Bob LaMonte says he has terminated his relationship with Josh McDaniels in the wake of McDaniels' surprising decision to turn down the Indianapolis Colts' head-coaching job and remain the offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots. "My word is my bond," LaMonte told Sports Business Journal on Wednesday. "Once you break that, there's nothing left." A source told ESPN's Dan Graziano that LaMonte was stunned Tuesday when McDaniels informed him that he would not accept the Colts job and instead would stay with the Patriots.

    Naw… I’m just kidding. They tore the city up.Following a grueling match which went down to the final second in what was arguably one of the most exciting Super Bowls on record, fans of the victorious Philadelphia Eagles took to the streets of the City of Brotherly Love. Many were simply joyous and looking forward to welcoming the Lombardi Trophy to their town at last. But a significant number of them went and did what Eagles fans are known all too well for. They began ripping up the infrastructure, setting fires and flipped over at least one car in front...

    This time, the New England Patriots were the victims of a Super Bowl comeback. MVP Nick Foles threw for three touchdowns and caught another as the Eagles defeated the Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, Minn. Sunday night to win the franchise’s first NFL championship since 1960.
  • So folks, what did you do instead of watch the Super Bowl?

    So what did you do? If you had a moment of weakness and watched the game, you can also confess here. My family? We ordered Out Back takeout and relaxed at home. Since we have never watched “Ash Versus Evil Dead” we started binge watching Season 1. It’s a hoot and the actor (Bruce Campbell) who plays the lead character bears an uncanny resemblance to Mitt Romney.

    President Trump and the first lady celebrated the Super Bowl at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida. To kick off the celebration, Trump and Melania watched the Florida Atlantic University Marching Band and cheerleaders perform patriotic songs in front of the club. Trump, who is a big fan of the New England Patriots, wore a black suit and red tie. Melania was not so subtle. The first lady made sure to show who she was rooting for by wearing Patriots colors. Melania was wearing the red, white and blue of the Patriots as she watched the performance.

    If you’re planning to watch the Super Bowl but you can’t stand the NFL take-a-knee protests, you may want to root for the Philadelphia Eagles. Not a single Eagles player sat or knelt during the national anthem, one of just seven teams with perfect non-kneeling records, in a season that saw 684 such incidents, according to a study released Thursday by Sports Pundit. The other Super Bowl LII team, the New England Patriots, landed in the middle of the pack with 17 incidents of anthem sitting or kneeling, wedged between the Buffalo Bills with 16 and the Cleveland Browns with...

    Pittsburgh and Philadelphia have always had a kind of love/hate relationship. We're joined by history and boundaries, but divided by more than 300 miles on the turnpike and more than 1 million people in population (we admit it, Philly's bigger). We might poke fun at the weird accents and food tastes of the other, but just like brothers, we'll defend those same idiosyncrasies against all outsiders. And this weekend, most Pittsburghers will take up arms to root on the Philadelphia Eagles against the much-despised New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII. But there's more to love about the City of...

    Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long said he won’t visit President Trump’s White House if his team defeats the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII on Sunday. “No, I’m not going to the White House,” Long said in an interview on Barstool Sports’ podcast Pardon My Take. “Are you kidding me?” Long, who was originally drafted by the St. Louis Rams and is playing in his 10th NFL season, played for the Patriots last season. He was one of several players who skipped the team’s White House visit after New England defeated the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI....

    It wasn’t Tom Brady’s hand that set conspiracy theorists’ minds racing. After the Patriots’ come-from-behind, 24-20 triumph over the Jaguars in the AFC Championship on Sunday, an official walked over to the glove-less wonder and patted him on the back to get his attention. He then used the universal nice-job-man pat to the chest, congratulating the 40-year-old on clinching his eighth Super Bowl appearance. It was enough to gain notice of a few NFL players and enough to begin the complaints of every Patriots critic (meaning, every non-Patriots fan).

    Unfortunately in the media, having actual experience in the field you're reporting on is not a prerequisite. Former NFL running back DeAngelo Williams clearly struck a nerve during a segment on NFL Network's "Good Morning Football" where he questioned the knowledge of those making predictions of Sunday's marquee match-up between the New England Patriots at the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady opened his Saturday news conference by apologizing for lashing out at offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels on the sideline last Sunday, saying it had been bothering him all week. "I want to apologize to Josh for last week in Buffalo. I know our coaches work really hard, and they are responsible for putting us in a great position to succeed. I just want to get that off my chest," Brady said in opening remarks, before he answered any questions. When Brady was asked if those types of outbursts were part of the emotion of football,...

    Sometime in the winter of 2010, my dad sat my younger brother and me down for a talk. He was getting older, he said. His side of our family was becoming increasingly distant due to age and sickness and death and divorce, and because there were no women in our family—my mom died when my brother and I were kids, none of my grandparents are alive anymore, and my dad’s two brothers are both divorced with sons—he told us that as we got older there would be no one to wrangle the family together, no one to plan events and...

    CBS Boston ^ | 27 September 2017
    Just one week after many members of the Patriots kneeled during the national anthem, a new report indicates that they will all stand together as a team next time out. A league source told CSNNE’s Gary Tanguay on Tuesday that all Patriots players will stand during the national anthem before next Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers at Gillette Stadium. Many stood and interlocked their arms during the anthem last Sunday before the game against the Texans, while a large portion kneeled. Teams across the league had similar demonstrations last Sunday, which were mostly a response to controversial comments made...

    Now that Aaron Hernandez may have his conviction posthumously vacated — under an obscure Massachusetts legal doctrine — the Patriots could owe him money, a lawyer said Thursday. The Pats may actually be contractually obligated to pay Hernandez’s estate a $3.5 million bonus that was stopped hours after his murder arrest in 2013, attorney William Kennedy told the CBS affiliate in Boston. Kennedy represents the families of Safiro Furtado and Daniel de Abreu. Hernandez was acquitted in their shooting murders last week — only to commit suicide Wednesday in the Massachusetts prison cell where he was serving life without parole...
  • Hernandez found NOT GUILTY

    BOSTON (WHDH) - After six days of deliberations, the jury in the double-murder trial of Aaron Hernandez found him not guilty for the 2012 murders of two men in Boston’s South End. The former New England Patriots tight end was on trial for the killings of Safiro Furtado and Daniel de Abreu after one of them accidentally spilled a drink on him at the Cure Lounge. Throughout the trial, his lawyers argued that it was Hernandez’s friend, Alexander Bradley, who shot the men in a drug deal while parked at a stop light.
