While the FIFA scandal has made national headlines, allegations of embezzlement and theft in sports organizations, large and small, are an almost every-day occurrence in cities and towns across America.
We are now in the death throes of Sepp Blatter's ailing and failing Fifa regime. No dictatorship willingly gives up its power, but the only question that really remains is how and when it will finally fall.... It is the members of the Fifa Congress, the football associations who represent every playing nation on the planet, who have the power to bring down the Blatter regime, and pressure from the sponsors makes such a revolution more likely. This crisis will eventually bring down Sepp Blatter, and if it continues much longer could wreck Fifa forever.

Instead of asking why Curry brought his daughter to the post game interview, we should be asking why don't more players do the same?
I believe that no matter how long your sports career lasts, whether it ends after Little League, or after winning the Super Bowl, what you will most be remembered for is what kind of competitor you were, what kind of teammate you were, and whether or not you respected the game.
The arrests in Zurich this week of some FIFA officials is totally embarrassing for Sepp Blatter and the powers that be at FIFA but actually quite meaningless in terms of actual consequences and real changes for the game itself for one reason and one reason only: FIFA's total monopoly over the game of Association Football since 1904.
If you had cast your eye on Scottish football over the last two years, then you would know all about Alex Neil. And you too would have probably seen at least one comparison with his namesake Alex Ferguson.
Harper's success in the face of so much pressure is an impressive accomplishment, but it is also part of a broader trend where top draft picks are now more likely than ever, injury notwithstanding, to become impact players.
The NFL is in a downward spiral, heading towards complete chaos, thanks to the behavior of many of its players, Ray McDonald included. The Chicago Bears decided to make a statement.

Three-pointers, home runs, birdies, aces and last-second checkered-flag finishes have been trumped by the unit of measurement called Pounds Per Square Inch (PSI's). And don't think the NFL is upset about that in any way.
It is clear that the Dolphins believe in the ability of Tannehill to potentially emerge as an elite QB. If they would have waited another year for that to happen the deal would have played out much differently, with a much higher guarantee and far more risk.
This is the most important change you can make to your training. Most beginning runners train at one speed, running at moderate (or even max) effort every session. While that's enough to drive meaningful aerobic gains, it's not the most effective way to get fast. In fact, most coaches will refer to moderate effort runs as "junk miles."
In many cases international players who end up coming to the USA for college are late signees as they take time to weigh professional offers in Europe against NCAA scholarship offers. That trend has continued this year.
As a parent of a young athlete, you have many responsibilities, one of which is keeping your kids safe. Among the most prevalent threats to our kids today is bullying. I know, I know. You've already watched a documentary, read the pamphlets sent home from school, and maybe even attended a school-wide assembly.

On Wednesday, May 27 at 12:30 p.m., the Birmingham Barons, currently 21-24 in the Southern League (AA-level minors), will host the last-place Jacksonville Suns.

It took Reggie Miller 22 games to make 58 three-pointers in the 200 playoffs. Stephen Curry broke the record last night when he reached his 59th three-pointer in 13 games. Miller, who is now retired and an analyst on TNT Network, did not waver in congratulating the MVP on his success via Twitter.
It's important that we continue discussing domestic violence, but it's also important that we take action to ensure victims get the justice they deserve and abusers get the help they need.
