How Donald Trump took on the NFL

WASHINGTON More than 30 years ago, Donald Trump bought a franchise in the upstart United States Football League. He then led his fellow owners to sue the NFL in a high-stakes antitrust case.

The head-on challenge and his ownership of the New Jersey Generals was an early testing ground for the swashbuckling approach that the celebrity businessman-turned-Republican presidential candidate has brought to his 2016 campaign.

'Donald was the big, crazy-spending owner, and the NFL guys were scared to death of him,' said Bill Tatham Jr., an owner of the USFL's Arizona Outlaws who came to admire Trump's tactics.

NFL Postseason Preview: Wild Card Round

After 17 weeks of regular season football, the NFL has arrived at yet another postseason. 30 teams began the season with hopes of contending for the Lombardi Trophy; 18 of those teams have already reached the end of the line. Only 12 contenders remain; a dozen squads left to contend for a spot in Super Bowl XLVIII (that's 48 for all you non-Romans out there).

It's a significant accomplishment to make it this far, to be surebut the journey is far from over.

A punter's passionate prose

Reviewing 'Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies'

'Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies' starts off in perhaps the only way it could: a reprint of Kluwe's Deadspin evisceration of Emmet Burns. In fact, the title of the collection springs from that letter after a fashion.

See, while the majority of Kluwe's critics used 'He's only a punter' as the foundation for their dismissal of him, others viewed his liberal use of profanity and other perceived vulgarities as a way to negate the validity of his views.

Summerall remembered as Voice of the NFL'

PLANO, Texas - Veteran sportscaster Pat Summerall was remembered Saturday during a memorial service as 'the voice of the NFL' and a venerated figure who maintained a humble approach despite the praise his broadcast work received for decades.

Thousands gathered Saturday at a Baptist church just north of Dallas to pay tribute to a broadcaster who called some of the most memorable games in NFL history, and also was known for his coverage of Grand Slam tennis tournaments, the Masters golf tournament and other sporting events.

Wes Welker walks away

New England says goodbye to fan favorite

One could accuse New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick of being a lot of things. Sentimental is not one of them.

Belichick recently continued a long and storied tradition of unapologetically cutting ties with veteran players, either through trades or outright releases. New England stalwarts and legends such as Lawyer Milloy, Ty Law, Richard Seymour, Randy Moss, Deion Branch and Adam Vinatieri have all been given their walking papers, unceremoniously dismissed despite still being talented and useful players.
