    Michael Sam believes he's not on a NFL roster because of the fact he's openly gay -- telling TMZ Sports he strongly believes he's got the talent to play in the league. Sam was at LAX this morning when he was asked if he thinks NFL teams are shying away from him because of his sexual orientation ... or if it has to do with the level of talent he faced after college. "I think I was the SEC Defensive Player of the Year last year ... so I don't think it had to do with talent."
  • Does Trump Have Obama Divorce Papers? And If He Did, Why Would He Release Them?

    10/23/2012 2:26:50 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 139 replies
    For a while today, it seemed like Donald Trump's "big ... very big ... very big" bombshell revelation about President Obama, which he has promised to unveil on Twitter tomorrow, might be an anonymous rumor that Obama sold cocaine in college, but Trump's right-hand man, Michael Cohen, has denied it. Trump's scoop is "substantially more important to the American people," Cohen told Daily Caller. Or ... is it? Douglas Kass, a Florida-based investor who appears on CNBC’s talkshow ‘Squawkbox’ where Trump is often a commentator, tweeted to his 48,000 followers: 'High above the Alps my Gnome has heard that Donald Trump will announce...

    LeBron James is known for taking passive/aggressive shots at his coaches. Whether he's dealing with Paul Silas or tolerating Mike Brown or griping about Erik Spoelstra's minutes allotment, it hardly matters. LeBron James is the king, in his own mind, and he's not to be touched. Unless he's the one doing the touching. Or bumping.

    Michael Crabtree celebrated his 22nd birthday Monday. As an unwanted gift, multiple reports surfaced that the 49ers are poised to drop their offer to the No. 10 overall pick out of Texas Tech. Citing team sources, Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports wrote that Crabtree's continued absence makes him less valuable to the 49ers on a prorated basis and added, "Translation: The team just reduced its offer and will continue to do so with each passing week." A day earlier, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reported that the 49ers sent a letter to Crabtree "modifying" their offer. Responding to the Fox...

    The New York Observer ^ | May 11, 2009 | Staff Writer
    Political blogger Meghan McCain isn’t exactly the toast of D.C. right now. Sen. John McCain’s daughter — who writes online for The Daily Beast and will soon release a book about life as a Republican — lost it after getting stopped by security when she arrived at the White House Correspondents dinner Saturday. The problem? She had only two tickets, but brought two friends. “The security guard sent her to talk to someone to sort out the situation, but Meghan got bratty and nastily told him, ‘We’ll just stand here then,’ like an insolent child,” our source said, adding that...

    Chicago Sun Times ^ | 12/16/08 | NATASHA KORECKI, Federal Courts Reporter
    A federal judge has indefinitely postponed the Jan. 6 sentencing for Tony Rezko, the prominent political fund-raiser and former adviser to Gov. Blagojevich. The move this morning came after Rezko lawyers asked U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve last week to throw out the sentencing date. Rezko's request comes as he restarts talks with federal prosecutors. Those talks hit a stumbling block as Rezko asked to be let out of solitary confinement at the downtown federal lockup. He asked for a rushed sentencing in January. But last week's revelation that the government has recordings in the governor's case, appeared to...

    Favre expected to submit letter of reinstatement to NFL by Friday By Adam Schefter | NFL Network During a telephone conversation Thursday with Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson, quarterback Brett Favre conveyed he is planning to return to the team and report to training camp this weekend.

However, just because Favre is now planning to return to the Packers, that doesn't mean the saga is...

    After 9 years, 9,217 postings and 158 original threads I have decided to leave Free Republic. I haven't arrived at this decision lightly, FR has been a huge part of my life for a decade. I've learned a tremendous amount from interacting with people here. A lot of my beliefs have been challenged, and I've had to rethink things I on many occassions. There are not too many places where you can learn from sincere people in an atmosphere of open discussion. My reasons for leaving are twofold. First, and most importantly, I think I'm graduating. I've probably gotten whatever...
  • Elton John rages at London police after princes' security makes him walk to post-gig party

    As a member of rock 'n' roll royalty, Sir Elton John does not take kindly to being outranked. Not even by Princes William and Harry. So when his chauffeur-driven people carrier was stopped because of royal security around the Concert for Diana, the veteran singer flew into one of the rages for which he is renowned. "Get out of my ****ing way," he screamed at a policeman. "Don't you know who I am? I've been working all ****ing day and I need to get to my ****ing dressing room." The officer, however, remained unmoved and eventually the 60-year old star,...

    LINCOLN, Neb. -- The mother of Nebraska backup quarterback Harrison Beck said her son, who skipped practice Saturday, is disgruntled with the amount of work he has received the first few days of preseason camp. Evelyn Beck-Bothwell told the Lincoln Journal Star on Saturday night that Beck sent her a text message that read: "I'm safe." Coach Bill Callahan said after practice that he didn't know Beck's whereabouts and that he was concerned about him. "We contacted his parents," Callahan said. "He didn't arrive for afternoon meetings, so we are concerned. We are trying to contact him at the moment."...

    (July 22, 2005) -- Terrell Owens says he will report to the Philadelphia Eagles training camp even though he is hinting that he would agree to a trade because of a contract dispute. Owens told the Philadelphia Inquirer for a story on its Web site that he would report to training camp, though he won't be happy if fails to get a new deal. "I'll be there," Owens said. "I mean, the bottom line is that I still believe I deserve a new contract. I still believe I deserve more than what they've given me. But I'm not stupid. I'm...

    For more than thirty-five years, American politics has followed a populist pattern as predictable as a Punch and Judy show and as conducive to enlightened statesmanship as the cycles of a noisy washing machine. The antagonists of this familiar melodrama are instantly recognizable: the average American, humble, long-suffering, working hard, and paying his taxes; and the liberal elite, the know-it-alls of Manhattan and Malibu, sipping their lattes as they lord it over the peasantry with their fancy college degrees and their friends in the judiciary. Conservatives generally regard class as an unacceptable topic when the subject is economics—trade, deregulation, shifting...

Some become permanent reservoirs of anger. Others simply crumple in the face of wholesale rejection. Barr BadnarikBob Barr adapted. He became more interesting. Perhaps you saw last night’s airing of the Atlanta Press Club/WPBA-TV debate on the proposed amendment to ban same-sex unions. Barr was one of six panelists — and the only one to upset audience expectations. The man who nearly chased Bill Clinton out of the White House declared Georgia’s gay-marriage amendment to be...

    "OK, I don't mind being compared to her, then" - Madonna The firm which owns the rights to Enid Blyton's works is sending Madonna a consignment of books after the mega-star said she'd never heard of her. While launching her first children's book, The English Roses, Madonna was asked if she wanted to be the next Enid Blyton. The 45-year-old star looked blank and asked: "Who is that? Is she good?" It was explained that Blyton was the author of children's favourites the Famous Five and Noddy tales, but this did not help the American. She added: "OK, I don't...

    The sound of a woman screaming yesterday morning made Mark Mezzandri drop tools onto the roof where he was working in Weymouth. But then he realized that the woman, apparently furious about an accident on Route 18 that blocked her way, was shouting expletives at a police officer. Officer Steven Shalno later reported that the woman told him: ''I don't care who [expletive] died. I'm more important.'' It didn't end there. The driver, later identified by police as 25-year-old software engineer Anna Gitlin, was pulled over by police at a gas station at the intersection of Route 18 and Middle...

    I just heard Sean complain that he is getting attacked by FReepers and implied that it is affecting his support of the site. I havent seen any attacks on Sean but I did post my opinion that Sean was gonna hang himself with the Trent Lott issue. And in the end...I was correct. Lott is gone...like he should be...I like Sean but he got out ahead of the curve on the Lott issue and found himself basically alone. We all know what was behind the Lott assault and the bias of the Liberal media and the hypocrisy of the Democrats...
