littleCHICAGO (CBS) - Little League Internationals officials have stripped Chicago’s Jackie Robinson West team of its national title from last summer’s Little League World Series, for allegedly adding top suburban players in violation of residency rules.

Little League officials determined “the Jackie Robinson West Little League and Illinois District 4 Administrator knowingly violated Little League International Rules and Regulations by placing players on their team who did not qualify to play because they lived outside the team’s boundaries.”

As a result, Jackie Robinson has vacated all its wins from the 2014 Little League tournament, including its regional and U.S. championships. The U.S. title from the Little League World Series will go to Mountain Ridge Little League of Las Vegas.  More

The Science Behind ‘DeflateGate’

patriotsWORCESTER - WBZ-TV’s Ken MacLeod spent some time with scientists and football players at Worcester Polytechnic Institute to find out.

Coach Chris Robertson is the boss of the football field. “It might be easier to grip, but not necessarily easier to throw,” Coach Robertson said of an under-inflated football.

And Professor Germano Iannacchione is the guru of physics. They bring two angles of tech expertise to “DeflateGate” from WPI, where the professor argues that deflating a prolate spheroid made of leather, only on game day, “might” help your quarterback and receivers in the cold and rain.

“But you’re just as likely, just because nobody has practiced it, to screw it up,” Iannacchione said.  More

11 of 12 Patriots footballs under inflated

Posted By Staff

Date: January 21st, 2015

Category: Bizarre, sports, strange

underThe Patriots and their integrity-challenged coach could be in deep trouble with the NFL once more after ESPN reported late Tuesday that 11 footballs confiscated from their 45-7 win over the Colts in the AFC title game last Sunday were found to be under inflated by two pounds of air (PSI) each.

ESPN described league officials as “disappointed, angry and distraught” at the findings.

The bombshell report — which the network attributed to anonymous sources — could mean the second major cheating scandal involving Belichick and the Patriots since Spygate in 2007, when they were caught taping the Jets’ defensive signals and fined $750,000 and docked a draft pick.  More

NFL probing whether New England Patriots purposely let air out of balls

patNo sooner did the New England Patriots clinch a trip to the Super Bowl than fresh allegations of cheating emerged against the franchise late Sunday, this time involving deflated footballs.

A reporter from Indianapolis, whose Colts were annihilated by Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and company, tweeted after the 45-7 loss that the NFL had seized at least one game ball from the AFC championship game to examine whether pigskins were intentionally deflated to make them easier to throw and catch.

“The NFL is investigating the possibility,” Kravitz tweeted, adding that, “at one point the officials took a ball out of play and weighed it.”

If the Patriots did cheat, it would not be the first time.  More

coachCalifornia – A Southern California high school basketball coach has been suspended and faces accusations of mercilessly running up the score after his team won a game 161-2, one of the most lopsided scores in state history.

Arroyo Valley High girls’ coach Michael Anderson was suspended for two games after the victory last week against Bloomington High.

Anderson said that he wasn’t trying to run up the score or embarrass the opposition.

His team had won four previous games by at least 70 points, and Bloomington had already lost a game by 91.  More

St. Louis police group demands punishment for Rams players in Ferguson protest

Category: Bizarre, sports, strange

ramsSt. Louis – A police officers’ group called on the NFL to punish five Rams players who stood with their hands raised before trotting onto the field for pregame introductions Sunday.

The St. Louis Police Officers’ Association said it was “profoundly disappointed” with what it called a “display that police officers around the nation found tasteless, offensive and inflammatory.”

It called for the players involved to be disciplined and for both the league and team to issue a “very public apology.”

The so-called “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture has been commonly used by demonstrators protesting the decision of a St. Louis County grand jury to not indict Officer Darren Wilson in the August 9 shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in suburban Ferguson. Some witnesses said Brown, who was black, had his hands up before being fatally shot by Wilson, who is white. More   Update: NFL says it won’t discipline Rams players for Ferguson protest

saintsNEW ORLEANS – With prime seats in section 130 of the Superdome, both Tony Williams and Christa Barrett had their eyes on getting a football after a celebration.

Barrett, saw her chance mid-way through the third quarter when Andy Dalton rolled out and hit Jermaine Gresham for a one-yard touchdown. Seven rows up, Barrett and her sister Cara Meadows ran down the aisle to celebrate with Gresham.

“As soon as that happened, we ran down,” Barrett said. “Gresham saw us and threw the ball to us.”

That’s when Williams made a tight end-like move himself, stepping in front of her and picking off Gresham’s pass while throwing his elbow into Barrett’s face.  More   Watch video at Nutty News Videos

farmerLOUISBURG, North Carolina – At one point number 60, Jason Brown, was one of the best centers in the NFL.

At one point he had a five-year, $37 million contract with the St. Louis Rams.

And at one point he decided it was all meaningless – and just walked away from football.

“My agent told me, ‘You’re making the biggest mistake of your life,’” said Brown. “And I looked right back at him and I said, ‘No I’m not. No I’m not.’”

Jason Brown quit football to be a plain, old farmer — even though he’d never farmed a day a in his life.  More

josePoker players in a game with Jose Canseco on Thursday night got an unexpected ante from the former MLB slugger — his finger.

Canseco took to Twitter on Friday to announce that the middle finger on his left hand, which was severely damaged when he accidentally shot himself in the hand last month while cleaning his gun at home, fell off while he was playing poker.

Doctors tried to save the digit after the shooting, but Canseco said their efforts were pointless because there wasn’t much left to connect.

Apparently the game was taped, including when Canseco’s finger fell off.  More

Kaelin Clay Drops Ball At 1-Yard Line To Celebrate, Oregon Runs It Back For Touchdown

footballUtah, the 17th-ranked college football team in the nation, was on its way to a 14-0 lead against No. 4 Oregon when something truly bizarre happened.

Utah wide receiver Kaelin Clay caught a deep pass from quarterback Travis Wilson and appeared to run it into the end zone for a 79-yard touchdown.

But as the home crowd went wild, perceptive Oregon players realized that Clay had, unbelievably, dropped the ball at the one-yard line — rather than waiting until he had actually crossed the goal line, as is traditional.  More   Watch Video at Nutty News Videos
