Aiden Cusick | November 25, 2015 | UK Sport

Thaddeus McCarthy | November 24, 2015 | Sports
Having watched Novak Djokovic beat Roger Federer in two sets in the final of the ATP World Tour finals (6-3, 6-4) a few days ago, I thought that I would pose the question which will right now be on the tennis worlds lips: Is Djokovic's 2015 the greatest season in the professional era?

Michael Lazar | November 24, 2015 | Sports
With 10 wins under their belt, the New England Patriots are rolling. But the team has also been taking its hits, too, making the offense less effective and putting more of the burden on Tom Brady's shoulders. Last night's game, which...

Rick Wolff | November 24, 2015 | Sports
Not too long ago, I received a call from a well-intentioned dad who explained that he was an avid listener to my WFAN sports parenting show, and he wanted to ask my advice about his son, who he explained was a promising baseball pitcher. There was just one catch...

Few things bring the country together during the year like football and Thanksgiving is no exception. For millions of families, watching football on Thanksgiving is as much a part of the day as turkey, stuffing, or sweet potato pie.

In games of spin, it's the arenas of politics, business and entertainment that thrive on plays of influence. Less so in sports where laws of physics trump rules of rhetoric.

I have been a Packers fan since I was a staffer for then-U.S. Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI) more than a decade ago. So, I can't claim to be impartial. However, I'd like to think I would be singing the praises of any professional athlete who uses their spotlight to do the right thing.

The NFL could potentially offset how structural bias impacts the treatment of black and white players by perhaps getting their own investigators to these scenes alongside the police to conduct independent inquiries at the ground level. But even if such an effort was possible, there is no guarantee the NFL investigators would be any less biased than the local police departments.
