    President-elect Donald Trump has nominated as his Army secretary Vincent Viola, an Army veteran who became a billionaire after founding an electronic trading firm and went on to buy the Florida Panthers hockey team. Viola is a 1977 graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., and funded the creation of its highly regarded Combating Terrorism Center after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. A former infantry officer and Ranger School graduate, he has pressed for innovation in cyber warfare, saying at a conference five years ago that the Army of the future will be built on a gestalt...

    In a new segment for his weekly series with The Player's Tribune, Seahawks' cornerback Richard Sherman appears in a four-minute video on how the NFL treats its players. He says that the league sees them like race cars, doing just enough to keep them in good shape to perform, then dropping them once they're no longer on a roster.

    White House officials would not tell NBC News whether President Obama will raise the issue of 70 fugitives from U.S. justice including convicted cop-killer JoAnne Chesimard who are hiding in Cuba when he meets Cuban leaders during his visit to the island. ... Chesimard, who fled to Cuba in 1984 after escaping from a New Jersey prison in 1979, was convicted of the 1973 execution-style murder of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster. She is on the FBI's Most Wanted International Terrorists list, and is the most notorious of a group of criminals and violent radicals who have...

    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...

    Jeb Bush admits that the reason he supported the Denver Broncos over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 was because Peyton Manning donated to his presidential campaign. Wednesday during a town hall event in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, Bush claimed, “And Peyton Manning in the NFL I guess is adult in the room, right? So I kind of like that position these days, I never thought I would be the adult in the room.” “Now we just saw the Super Bowl, I know that you all probably, maybe had some leanings to Carolina,” Bush said. “I was for Denver...

    Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton just gave his critics all the ammunition they need. Already under fire for how he conducts himself on the field, Newton went silent after his team's 24-10 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday in Super Bowl 50, sulking at the podium and essentially refusing to answer questions.

    SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 31 (UPI) -- Denver may be closer to San Francisco than Charlotte, but there is no home field advantage in the Super Bowl. 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...
  • Cam Newton: 'I'm an African American QB that Scares People'

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Panthers quarterback Cam Newton suggested for the first time Wednesday that race may play a factor in why he's become a lightning rod for public criticism. "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.

    After 12 weeks of the NFL season, the New England Patriots are still the heavy favorite to win the Super Bowl. Using Nate Silver's "2015 NFL Predictions," a model that rates each team and then projects how the regular season and playoffs will play out, we can get a better sense of which teams are the true Super Bowl contenders. Heading into Week 13, the New England Patriots are still the favorite with a 28% chance to win the Super Bowl, down from 33% a week ago. The Carolina Panthers (20%) are the favorite in the NFC. In fact, according...

    Here's what the oddsmakers at Boomaker.eu had to say about setting the spread for the Carolina at Dallas contest, which opened at Cowboys -1 with a total of 47:From a pure power ratings perspective, Carolina should be favored in this matchup. But given that it's the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day with Romo back on the field, we had to open the home squad as short chalk. The country will be watching and the Cowboys are still America's team. We'll see how the action develops for the game over the course of the week, but it's already clear that while the...

    Protesters hijack Monday Night Football: Two men abseil from the stands and dangle unhindered for TWO QUARTERS as Colts play Panthers - but how did they get rappelling gear past security? Two protesters rappelled down from the upper balcony to unfurl a banner protesting against Bank of America during Monday night's game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Carolina Panthers. The protesters dangled over fans in the lower bowl and in front of press-box windows in Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, late in the third quarter, then displayed a banner telling the Charlotte-based financial institution to 'dump...

    Just two weeks before Shannon Miles allegedly crept up on Harris County Deputy Darren Goforth in the darkness and assassinated him, an armed Black Panther member marched in front of the Waller County jail and shouted, Youre gonna stop doing what youre doing, or we will start creeping up on you in the darkness, Breitbart reports. The comment was made by a leader of the Houston-based chapter of the New Black Panther Party and was captured on a short video clip by the Houston Chronicle. The paper was covering a rally that day at the jail where black inmate Sandra...
