    New Jersey governor Chris Christie has landed himself in hot water after he was caught enthusiastically celebrating a victory for the Dallas Cowboys. Christie was filmed hugging Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones and his son Stephen in a garish orange sweater after Dallas defeated Detroit Lions in a match yesterday. A native of New Jersey, Christie follows the Cowboys despite his team having a long-standing rivalry with the New York Giants in his own state as they play in the same NFL conference every year. He also cheers for the Cowboys ahead of his state's other NFL team, the New York...

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Matt Bevin believes the legality of cockfighting should be decided by states and not the federal government, his spokeswoman said Wednesday following a news report that Bevin attended a pro-cockfighting rally over the weekend."Matt doesn't believe this is a federal issue, and the state government can handle it," said Rachel Semmel, Bevin's spokeswoman.The News Journal in Corbin...
  • 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.

    Last month, we learned that Jay-Z, husband of American Idol guest star, Beyonce Knowles was planning to sell his one-percent ownership share of the Nets so he could pursue becoming a sports agent. And now, less than a month into his new business venture, he’s under investigation by the NFL! What’s going on? You’ll have to take the jump to find out! Jay-Z’s original plan for his new company, Roc Nation Sports Agency, was to let agents within the company take care of the day-to-day business and to negotiate contracts with the athletes. But according to the Inquisitr, Jay-Z may...

    Oday Aboushi leads a double life. On the one hand, he is an American football player with professional-level athletic skills. On the other, he is a fundamentalist Muslim with radical associations and a heritage that pushes him towards a destructive world of violence and hate. When the New York Jets football team chose Oday Aboushi with the eighth pick of the fifth round of the April 2013 NFL Draft (141st pick overall), the organization knew that it was getting an elite player who could wreak havoc on the field – one of the top offensive linemen in the entire draft....

    Why is Tim Tebow out in the cold? Why are general managers and coaches willing to roll the dice with a QB who has never played an NFL down or a struggling QB versus one who holds a winning record and notched a stylish, memorable playoff victory over the vaunted Pittsburgh defense?Part of Tebow’s fate falls to timing.   In past posts,  I’ve referenced economist Zvi Griliches iconic article “Hybrid Corn: An Exploration in the Economics of Technological Change”. He demonstrated the acreage planted with hybrid seed took over across states, slowly, at first few adopters, then gaining steam, and...

    I wouldn't blame Geno Smith for thinking life as a professional football player is overrated. Even by the standards of today's vicious media landscape, the assassination of Smith's character is shockingly swift. When he starred at West Virginia, Smith was characterized as humble, studious, courteous and bright. Now he's perceived as entitled, whiny and lazy. No one knows for sure how much of what's being said about Smith, who was drafted by the New York Jets in the second round, is true. Some have suggested race is the reason Smith has been criticized so harshly. Or it could be that...

    Business Insider Sports ^ | 11/18/2012 | Tony Manfred
    Tim Tebow only played three snaps on offense against the Rams yesterday. Coincidentally or not, the Jets won 27-13 and Mark Sanchez had his best game since Week 1. At this point it's crystal clear that the Tebow takeover that everyone assumed would happen when the Jets traded for him just isn't going to happen. If there was ever a time to turn to Tebow, it was this week. The Jets were desperate — 3-6 after two-straight 20-point losses. And Mark Sanchez was in a certifiable tailspin, sitting in the bottom five in the league in passer rating and completion...

    NY Daily News ^ | Nov. 14, 2012 | MANISH MEHTA
    Tebowmania may have captivated the NFL last season, but Tim Tebow’s new team doesn’t believe that he’s a savior. More than a dozen Jets players and members of the organization painted a sobering picture of the player who rallied the Broncos to the playoffs last season. In their eyes, he’s simply not very good. The prevailing thought in the organization is that Tebow is nothing more than a gimmick. “He’s terrible,” a defensive starter told the Daily News. Although Tebow told The News last month that he has made improvements as a quarterback over the past few months, none of...

    President Obama said Thursday that the New York Jets quarterback situation would make him "pretty nervous" if he were a fan of the team. The Jets acquired Denver phenom Tim Tebow in the off-season, but are playing him as a backup to Mark Sanchez. "I've got to tell you, I don't like the idea of a quarterback controversy at the start of the season," Obama said on Columbus' 97.1 The Fan in a Thursday call-in appearance on The Common Man & The Torg's radio program. (Also on POLITICO: NY Jets brush off Obama critique) "If I was a Jets fan,...

    Since taking the field with a 18-0 record in Super Bowl XLII, just 60 minutes from perfection, the New England Patriots have not won a playoff game. In their latest postseason collapse, versus the new York Jets, New England's offense, averaging a league-best 32 points, was held to 14 points at home until a garbage-time touchdown with seconds remaining. There are many reasons for New England's postseason woes: some specific to the Patriots, others generic to all football, one particular to a great performance by the Jets' defense. But Tuesday Morning Quarterback thinks this is the core reason: The football...

    The NFL will implement a workplace conduct training programme after finding the New York Jets acted unprofessionally in the case of a female television reporter who said she felt "uncomfortable" in their locker room. Commissioner Roger Goodell said the conduct of the Jets "clearly should have been better" but also stressed that his investigation of the matter found no evidence that TV Azteca reporter Ines Sainz was "bumped, touched, brushed against or otherwise subjected to any physical contact" by any player or coach. Goodell said it did appear that during the practice some Jets team members purposely threw footballs in...

Oh the day started off okay - with an endless supply of hope and promise because ... both made it into the NFC and AFC playoffs respectively... Back home in Texas, football games start in the afternoon - but here on the California coast, I discovered the Dallas Cowboys game was going to start at 10 a.m. ......

    Everybody has their favorite memory of Super Bowl III, aka the Game That Changed Pro Football Forever -- everybody who goes back that far, that is. Maybe it's Matt Snell scoring to put the Jets ahead of the Colts, the first time the AFL had ever led the NFL (in a Real Game, anyway). Or perhaps it's the shot of Joe Namath jogging off the field, right index finger aloft. For me, though, it's Curt Gowdy, NBC's play-by-play man, calling Sports Illustrated's Tex Maule a word that can't be used in this newspaper after the telecast was over -- but...

    ALBANY, June 24 - State lawmakers on Friday passed a plan to intensify oversight of New York's scandal-plagued public authorities, whose multibillion-dollar operations have long operated with little scrutiny. Their move to shine more light on the authorities, which have emerged as a shadow government in the state and have faced allegations of favoritism and corruption, capped the last day of a session dominated by efforts to overhaul the workings of Albany in response to growing outcries about a dysfunctional state government. The plan calls for creating an inspector general's post as well as an outside budget office. The first...

    If you love cities, this is a week to rejoice. Now that the stadium planned for New York's West Side is dead, no one can fantasize anymore about the Olympics coming to New York. If the city had gotten the 2012 Games, its leaders would have basked for seven years in Olympic photo opportunities, and mayors across America would have watched enviously. They would have succumbed further to what I think of as the Circus Maximus syndrome. The victims of this urban-planning syndrome believe, like some Roman emperors, that a leader's prime civic responsibility is to build entertainment palaces for...

    Representatives from the Jets were conspicuously absent when two state assemblymen appeared outside City Hall on Tuesday to announce legislation that seemed tailor-made for the football team: the repeal of a tax break for Cablevision, the most aggressive opponent of a new stadium for the team. The Jets, as well as Cablevision, have tried to avoid much notice in the dispute over building the stadium, but there is little doubt about who the dominant players are. In fact, a closer look at Tuesday's event shows that the Jets were deeply involved in trying to get the anti-Cablevision bill introduced in...
