As his recent feature on GQ makes perfectly clear, Jalen Ramsey doesn’t have a ton of good things to say about most NFL quarterbacks. The Jaguars’ star corner has an especially strong disdain for Buffalo Bills rookie Josh Allen.

Ramsey went ham on Allen on Twitter back in May. He’s now taken even more shots at the young QB, but this time he got to expound more on exactly what he finds so objectionable about Allen’s game.

The funny thing is Ramsey’s general feelings about Allen aren’t all that different than what the television talking heads were saying in the days and weeks leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft. Allen struggled with consistency and he wasn’t very good against better competition. Meanwhile, Baker Mayfield, Sam DarnoldJosh Rosen and Lamar Jackson — the other quarterbacks taken in the first round — had much better pedigree.

Allen took the high road and didn’t offer much of a response.

Allen will have to earn Ramsey’s respect before the corner gives it up. The young QB will have the opportunity to do so in Week 12 when the Jaguars visit Buffalo.

University Of Maryland Accept Blame In Jordan McNair’s Death http://thesource.com/2018/08/15/university-of-maryland-accept-blame-in-jordan-mcnairs-death/ http://thesource.com/2018/08/15/university-of-maryland-accept-blame-in-jordan-mcnairs-death/#respond Wed, 15 Aug 2018 13:56:14 +0000 http://thesource.com/?p=459615 University of Maryland president Wallace Loh said Tuesday the school informed the parents of offensive lineman Jordan McNair it “accepts legal and moral responsibility” for the mistakes that led to his June 13 death two weeks after being hospitalized following an offseason team workout. “The university accepts legal and moral responsibility for the mistakes that […]

University of Maryland president Wallace Loh said Tuesday the school informed the parents of offensive lineman Jordan McNair it “accepts legal and moral responsibility” for the mistakes that led to his June 13 death two weeks after being hospitalized following an offseason team workout.

“The university accepts legal and moral responsibility for the mistakes that our training staff made on that fateful day of May 29th,” the UMD president told reporters.

Loh and athletic director Damon Evans held a press conference after meeting with the family. The McNair family released a statement after their meeting with school officials.

Medical experts say McNair’s health might have hinged on Maryland’s adherence to medical guidelines for treating heatstroke, including cold-water immersion — a protocol that doctors say likely saved former Towson football player Gavin Class’ life after he was stricken during a practice in 2013. According to ESPN, they waited an hour after the offensive lineman suffered a seizure before calling 911.

An independent investigation into the circumstances surrounding McNair’s death already was ongoing.

The university has already cut ties with its top football strength and conditioning coach, Rick Court, who According to Yahoo Sports, has reached a financial settlement with Maryland under which he’ll receive a lump sum of $315,000, two-thirds of what he was due for the remainder of his contract.

“I am blessed for the relationships I have built and wish nothing but success for our team,” Court wrote, in part, in a farewell letter he tweeted after the news conference that also said he had been “deeply impacted” by McNair’s death.

McNair’s death is unfortunate but at the same time, it could be the spark that puts a spotlight on hazing problems around college football. No amount of apologizing will bring back  McNair to his loved ones.

Dwight Howard Wants to Transition His Game to be Like Kevin Durant http://thesource.com/2018/08/15/dwight-howard-kevin-durant-anthony-davis/ http://thesource.com/2018/08/15/dwight-howard-kevin-durant-anthony-davis/#respond Wed, 15 Aug 2018 09:00:50 +0000 http://thesource.com/?p=459636 Dwight Howard has officially confused NBA fans everywhere by stating that he wants to transition his game from a dominant back to the basket rebounder and dunker to be more like Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis.

Dwight Howard has officially confused NBA fans everywhere by stating that he wants to transition his game from a dominant back to the basket rebounder and dunker to be more like Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis. Fans that have watched the big man since he led the Orlando Magic to the NBA Finals way back when know that jump shots are not his forte. He is an average at best free throw shooter.

Howard is now a member of the Washington Wizards after being recruited by Wizards point guard John Wall and according to his trainer Justin Zormelo, Howard is looking to adjust how he is known to play.

“He wants to evolve into Anthony Davis, into Kevin Durant, but his own version of that,” Zormelo said to the Washington Post.

Yes, that AD and KD. What suddenly made this change? Howard told the Post he wants to just remain with the modern style of the game.

“When I came into this league I was playing against the Shaqs, the Alonzo Mournings, the Jermaine O’Neals and it was more so a physical—I’m going to see who’s the strongest guy in the paint,” Howard shared. “It’s like an arm wrestling match for the big guys. And nowadays, it’s not the same game. So it’s either evolve, adapt, or get left behind.”

We can’t really be mad at him for that, right? Adjust who you are or find yourself without a team. Dwight Howard played the way that was traditional for him over the last few years during his 81 game season with the Charlotte Hornets and put up a double-double average of nearly 17 points with 12 rebounds.

We’ll see how it turns out for the big guy. Maybe D.C. could be the team he needs to break into the next level. Good luck DH12.

The Los Angeles Lakers aren’t the only ones rumored for the return of Kobe Bryant to basketball, Ice Cube has been lobbying for the services of the Black Mamba to his Big 3 league continuously but consistently is denied.

On a visit to the Rich Eisen Show, the Big 3 head honcho revealed that he often requests Kobe to come out of basketball retirement and to play professionally for the first time since 2016. “Yes, every time. He always turned me down, but I don’t care. Next time I see you Kobe, I’m going to ask you again.”

Cube did let Bryant know that “whenever he get the itch” the Big 3 has a jersey for him to put on.

Rumors around Kobe Bryant playing professionally again first sparked when LeBron James joined the Los Angeles Lakers and it was believed he could join the newly arrived King. Kobe’s wife Vanessa denied any desire that Kobe would want to return to basketball, citing he is enjoying life off of the court. We can all dream though, right?

While some NFL players are willing to sacrifice everything to bring attention to social injustice, some are out to discredit the players’ efforts.  A South Beach police union urged their members to boycott the Miami Dolphins after several players protested during a preseason game.

The Miami Dolphins’ Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson defied the NFL’s new policy requiring players to stand during the national anthem and took a knee during the Star Spangled Banner to protest racial injustice and police brutality.

Following their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Broward County Police Benevolent Association called on its union members and police officers in nearby counties to boycott ticket, merchandise and product sales from the team and the NFL.

“Anybody that disrespects the flag during the national anthem is personally offensive to me, having spent four years of my life — six months in the Persian Gulf — and having friends that have died while serving in the military,” Rod Skirvin, vice president of the Broward County Police Benevolent Association, told ABC News in a telephone interview Sunday. “That being said, I do not have a problem with peaceful protests, whatsoever, I also served in the military to preserve that right for people. I just feel that the forum that they are using to do that is extremely offensive to a large part of America.”

Worth noting, again: The ongoing anthem protests have absolutely nothing to do with the military, and in fact are a thoughtful expression of the very freedoms the troops are credited with preserving. The NFL season gets underway in a few weeks. The player protest controversy will be heading towards its third season with no ending in site. Some will call for a boycott while others will call for action.

Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore was spotted at the Athletes vs Cancer, charity flag football game in L.A. late Sunday by TMZ. Amore believes that his wrestling days are over for good; He believes there is no amount of money that can change his mind either he stated in the interview only under one condition.

Amore, named Eric Arndt was a former WWE superstar and Cruiserweight Champion ranked 110 in the top 500 singles wrestlers in the PWI in 2017.  Amore, 31, signed with WWE in 2012 and spent most of his time with the company as a tag team partner to Big Cass. The pair were among the most over tag teams in the company until their breakup. Cass was released from the company in June after a failed singles run.

Arndt was fired from the WWE abruptly after rape allegations in January, that was eventually dropped in May due to lack of evidence. Arndt has picked up a new career path in the form of becoming a hip-hop artist and has worked on his rap album with countless big names.

Amore has focused largely on his rap career since his WWE release, putting out songs called “Phoenix” and “Bury Me a G.”

As fans of NY Yankees star Aaron Judge await to see how quickly he’ll recover from that wrist injury, the 2017 Rookie of the Year decided to bless diehards with a treat in the form of his brand new Oakley frames as the newest member of #TeamOakley.



Setting up shop at the NYC Oakley Store on Fifth Avenue last Friday (August 10), Judge took fans on a history of his lengthy relationship with Oakley — at age 11 he had custom-colored frames to match the colors of his first softball team uniform — and why he’s happy to be officially endorsed by the Cali-based sports eyewear brand. Of course, a few fans asked about his stats and recovery time when the Q&A came around, but all eyes were definitely on his custom “99” Radar® EV Pitch® frames, which feature the innovative PRIZM lens technology. It also didn’t hurt that all fans in the shop walked away with their own pair of Judge-stamped frames. We’ll just speak for everyone when we say this: thanks AJ!

Get a look at images from Aaron Judge’s in-store event below, and shop the Oakley Radar EV Pitch — customizing available, too! — by hitting up the Oakley online store.

World Wrestling Entertainment and their fans have lost another legend. The company confirms the death of Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, a member of the storied Hart Foundation tag team with Bret “The Hitman” Hart and father to currently WWE superstar Natalya.

TMZ Sports reveals “Preliminary information indicates that [Neidhart] fell at home, hit his head, and succumbed to his injury.” There was believed to be no foul play involved in the incident. Neidhart was 63-years-old.

Neidhart was a two-times tag team champion, with a career that extended to WCW and TNA wrestling companies. His last appearance in a WWE ring was in 2007. He also played in the National Football League with the Oakland Raiders and Dallas Cowboys.

Natalya was scheduled to wrestle on tonight’s (Aug 14) episode of RAW in a match with WWE RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss but was pulled from the schedule. She did issue a statement on Twitter regarding her father’s passing.

Members of the current locker room extended condolences to the Bret Hart, Natalya and the entire Hart family. Hart was survived by his wife and three daughters.

The 2019 NBA free agency is a year away but teams are already priming themselves to get their hands on one of the prized players that will be without a team. That includes the Los Angeles Clippers who have their eyes on Kawhi Leonard and have decided not to renew the contract for in game analyst Bruce Bown next season after remarks made about Leonard in his past season with the San Antonio Spurs.

ESPN reports Bowen was an employee of Fox Sports West, a network that received influence from the basketball organization. The remarks are believed to be detrimental to the chances the team can have in getting the star forward next summer.

“I think he’s getting bad advice,” Bowen told Sirius XM Radio. “I think what you’re starting to see now is an individual given a certain amount of advice, and it’s not the right advice. Here it is: You were protected in San Antonio. You were able to come up during a time where you still could lean on Tim [Duncan], Tony [Parker] and Manu [Ginobili].”

Bowen also stated that he felt there was nothing but excuses coming from Kawhi Leonard.

Bruce Bowen knows a thing or two about the Spurs organization. The defensive Stallworth was a key figure in the mid-2000s championships for the organization and has his number retired.

Quavo of the Migos is quite an athletic talent. After taking home the 2018 NBA Celebrity Game MVP trophy, he can now add an additional $10k to his bag,

Thanks to a bet with Drake, he’ll have some extra cash to spend. Considering Quavo scored 19 points, on 7 of 10 shooting at his break out NBA debut Drizzy should have known better to bet against Huncho on the basketball court.

Assuming Huncho didn’t possess Steph Curry’s limitless range, Drizzy thought banking on a half-court shot was a solid bet

Unfortunately, he doesn’t have Curry’s range and had to pay the price in full. Footage of the bet can be found on Quavo’s Instagram account. The caption reads, “H A L F C O U R T S H O T  You Can Be Next!!! Jus Pull Up… SHOOT FA THE 💰,” He is ready for all the smoke if you think you can win.

Press play and “Shooting For 10 Bandz” lets you know what’s at stake before Quavo sinks the shot, making it look easy, as you’ll notice he is wearing a pair of socks and Nike slides. Drake can’t follow up the shot. Luckily, this isn’t the last time we could see the OVO and Migos camps square off on the basketball court.

Last month we informed you Drizzy had a basketball kit collaboration with Nike, Well Huncho recently informed Billboard that the Migos vs. OVO basketball tournament was the part of the tour which he was most excited about. Our money is on Team Migos

As Serena Williams — tennis court G.O.A.T. and overall goddess of everything she touches — prepares for the U.S. Open in a few weeks, Nike and Virgil Abloh are outfitting her in some seriously fly gear with the official “QUEEN” capsule set.



The collection arrives in the form of two finely-tuned and tulled dresses — one for “daytime” and one for “nighttime,” of course — and performance sneakers branded especially for Serena. Each dress incorporates Virgil’s signature all-caps and quotations lettering, fittingly spelling out “SERENA” in some places and “LOGO” on others. The footwear options include the NikeCourt Flare 2 PE, Air Max 97 and Blazer Mid SW, with each silhouette featuring a colorful gradient effect in its own special way.

Peep the Serena Willaims-exclusive (for now at least) Nike x Virgil Abloh “QUEEN” Collection below:


…Good luck on the courts, Queen!

We all knew it was coming. It’s official that Carmelo Anthony is a Houston Rocket. What no one saw coming was Melo accepting a bench role.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski detailed the new deal for Carmelo will add $2.4 million over one year to his $25 million bag he got from the Atlanta Hawks. The shocker was the addition of “The Rockets are expended to bring Anthony off the bench this season.”

Just last year, Melo made headlines when he was adamant about not coming off the bench for the Oklahoma City Thunder and many believed that would be the same with his arrival in Texas, but apparently, there was an agreement to adjust his role with his new team.

Melo is scheduled to arrive in Houston on Monday to finish his physical. Melo also reportedly met with the Miami Heat about possibly joining the team in South Beach.

Preseason NFL football is well underway and with that comes on the field drama. The Jaguars have suspended cornerback Jalen Ramsey and defensive end Dante Fowler, the team announced Sunday.

The team released a statement saying the two were suspended “for violating team rules and conduct unbecoming of a Jaguars football player.”

Earlier Sunday, Fowler and fellow defensive end Yannick Ngakoue got into a shouting match on the Jaguars practice field and reportedly had to be separated several times. Fowler had just been activated from the physically unable to perform list Saturday.

Ramsey was not happy that members of the media filmed the first incident between Fowler and Ngakoue and yelled at the local media to “stop recording that s—, man!” Ramsey continued to yell at the media and use profane language as he left the practice field.

In all likely hood, Ramsey’s tweet threatening a reporter is probably what got him suspended for a week.

Ramsey has been an outspoken presence for the Jaguars throughout his first two seasons with the team. After helping Jacksonville defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC divisional round, he guaranteed his team would not only advance to the Super Bowl but also win. Time will tell if the Jaguars can get back to the playoffs again.

LaVar Ball is never one to not speak his mind. When it comes to President Donald Trump, Ball isn’t a fan. Asked by TMZ Sports if he thinks Trump is racist, Ball’s matter-of-fact reply was “yes…everybody knows that.”

President Trump has been a topic of discussion in NBA circles over the past couple of weeks as Lonzo’s new Lakers teammate – LeBron James – was recently the subject of an inflammatory Tweet from the president.

During a recent sit-down interview with CNN’s Don Lemon, James said that he would “never sit across” from the current president of the United States. James also went on to say that he thinks President Trump is using sports – and athletes – to try to divide people.

Lavar, though, doesn’t care about politics. What he wants is for LeBron to “come here and win for LA.” He also believes that “nobody’s worried about his political stance right now.”

Ball and Trump previously exchanged words last year when the president took credit for getting LiAngelo Ball out of China after LiAngelo and two UCLA basketball players admitted to shoplifting merchandise from a Louis Vuitton store in Hangzhou.

Isiah Thomas has been in his feelings ever since he left the Cleveland Cavaliers. Thomas took to IG live to rip into the city of Cleveland, Ohio. Thomas, who has bounced around the NBA throughout his career, was discussing the various cities where he has played and sharing an opinion on each. When he got to his brief stint with the Cavaliers, Thomas made those vulgar comments before adding “I can see why LeBron left — again.”

After calling Cleveland a “sh*thole, Thomas offered an apology shortly afterward.

Thomas was part of the blockbuster deal involving Kyrie Irving last off-season, coming over from the Boston Celtics. But after an impressive debut with the Cavaliers on Jan. 2 — following months of rehab from a significant hip injury — Thomas made little positive impact before getting dealt to Los Angeles during a roster overhaul at the trade deadline.

Thomas signed with the Denver Nuggets this summer. The deal was worth only 2 million dollars. Just two seasons ago, Thomas was projected to be a max salary player.

Two Miami Dolphins wide receivers, Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson, knelt during the playing of the national anthem before their preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Hard Rock Stadium on Thursday. Dolphins defensive end Robert Quinn also raised his fist during the anthem.

The NFL issued a statement a few hours later, saying that no discipline would be issued for that while negotiations continue with the league and the NFLPA about a potential new anthem policy.

“The NFL has been engaged in constructive discussions with the NFL Players Association regarding the anthem and issues of equality and social justice that are of concern to many Americans. While those discussions continue, the NFL has agreed to delay implementing or enforcing any club work rules that could result in players being disciplined for their conduct during the performance of the anthem.”

It’s interesting to note that the current policy, which was adopted in May, has not gone away for the time being. It’s just that it’s not being enforced with punishment at this point.

The statement continued, “Meanwhile, there has been no change in the NFL’s policy regarding the national anthem. The anthem will continue to be played before every game, and all player and non-player personnel on the field at that time are expected to stand during the presentation of the flag and performance of the anthem. Personnel who do not wish to do so can choose to remain in the locker room. We remain committed to working with the players to identify solutions and to continue making progress on important social issues affecting our communities.”

So, the upcoming Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” colorway has been through a lot of changes — somehow it all points back to Drake, but that’s another story. However, it’s looking like the highly-anticipated release will finally see the light of day as soon as next week.



The Toronto Raptors-inspired hue was originally expected to be a Drake-supported drop, all the way down to the Scorpion rapper’s signature appearing on the tongue. While that iteration of the shoe has been shelved — the purple Jumpman and red Drizzy siggy is replaced with a muted-out black version, sans the John Hancock — this edition is thankfully just as fly. Heck, we’re sure a few Pusha T fans will surely appreciate this version over the other. Only time will tell if these shoes will get the official co-sign by Drake again, especially after that line in his Astroworld feature, but we’ll find out soon enough.

The Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” hit retailers next week Saturday (August 18), so remind yourself why you need to be copping these with the set of images below:

Dez Bryant seems to be spending a lot of the time he would be using in training camp on Twitter. While entertaining, it would be great for the wide receiver to be back on the field and it may not be too much longer before we see it happen. Bryant revealed on Twitter he will be visiting the Cleveland Browns next week to potentially become their latest receiving threat.

Cleveland.com reports Browns general manager John Dorsey has interest in bringing in the former Dallas star but “He won’t return any phone calls.” Something has seemed to be changed as Dez has tweeted “I’m coming to the Land to see you Mr Dorsey.”

Dez Bryant’s addition could round out a very strong wideout crew for the Browns who recently acquired Jarvis Landry from the Dolphins and Josh Gordon is on the way back to the team once he finishes his health and treatment plan.

Check out the tweets from Bryant below.

Buffalo Wild Wings wants to get into the lucrative sports betting business.

The popular food chain confirmed in a statement with ESPN on Thursday that the company is looking into offering bookmaking at its store locations.

“As the largest sports bar in America, we believe Buffalo Wild Wings is uniquely positioned to leverage sports gaming to enhance the restaurant experience for our guests,” a spokesperson’s statement to ESPN read. “We are actively exploring opportunities, including potential partners, as we evaluate the next steps for our brand.”

Buffalo Wild Wings, which has locations in all 50 states, likely will need to partner with a company that is already licensed to take bets. The chain has struggled in recent years in its ability to attract younger customers and the rising price of chicken wings.

It would make a lot of sense to get into the business of sports betting now. The Supreme Court cleared the way in May for states to legalize sports betting, striking down a 1992 federal law that had prohibited most states from authorizing sports betting.

Just last week, former Carolina Panthers Wide Receiver Kelvin Benjamin threw some shade at his old QB. In an interview with The Athletic, the current Buffalo Bills WR said he wishes he was never drafted by the Panthers. “If you would’ve put me with any other quarterback, let’s be real, you know what I’m saying?” Benjamin told The Athletic.

“Any other accurate quarterback like [Aaron] Rodgers or Eli Manning or Big Ben… anybody! Quarterbacks with knowledge, that know how to place a ball and give you a better chance to catch the ball. It just felt like I wasn’t in that position.”

Newton was later asked about Benjamin’s statement but he kept it classy with only the best things to say about Benjamin. Newton decided to save his words for when he and number 13 would see each other for the preseason opener.

A new video shows the 2015 MVP walking up to Benjamin and offering handshake that goes ignored. After the failed dap, Cam shares some words with his former teammate none of which looks too confrontational yet you can see the frustration in Cam’s body language.

Benjamin repeatedly tries to walk away and even signals Cam to go back to his sideline. Eventually, Cam gives up and walks away.

Oddly enough, the season that Benjamin tore his ACL and missed the entire year with the Panthers was the same year that Cam Newton won the Most Valuable Player Award and took his team to the Super Bowl after a 15-1 regular season. Benjamin was expected to come back from the injury and be the piece to give Carolina a ring, but things didn’t pan out that way and Benjamin was traded mid-season in 2017 to the Buffalo Bills.

The Bills snuck into the playoffs last year after a 17 season drought and are looking to get back in this season with a different QB. The favorite to start at QB is former Cincinnati Bengals backup AJ McCarron.
