Disney CEO Joins Push to Bring NFL to Los Angeles

The push to bring the NFL got some backup Wednesday as Disney CEO Bob Iger joined the group that is pushing for two teams to move to Los Angeles suburb Carson.  Formed earlier this year by the owners of the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders, Carson Holdings has named Iger as its non-executive chairman.  If the Carson Project gets the go-ahead from the NFL, Iger would be responsible for hiring the executive responsible for overseeing day-to-day operations of the proposed $1.7 billion stadium.  Iger will only be paid a $1 salary for his role, but is eligible to purchase a stake in either the Chargers or Raiders at a later date.  The executive is currently slated to remain at the helm of Disney through 2018, and he has vowed not to exercise his purchase option before he steps down.

Houston Texans to Appear on 10th Season of Hard Knocks

Houston Texans to Appear on 10th Season of Hard Knocks

The National Football League's Houston Texans announced Wednesday that they will be featured in the upcoming tenth season of HBO's acclaimed documentary series Hard knocks. The Texans are the fifth AFC team in the last six years to be featured and the first team from their division, the AFC South. A league rule provided that the league could require teams to do the show, but it is believed that Houston will participate voluntarily, despite being one of nine teams the league could elect for the honor this year. The Atlanta Falcons were featured on Hard Knocks last season, following the Cincinnati Bengals in 2013 and the Miami Dolphins in 2012. The impact of the distraction caused by being filmed for the Hard Knocks series is a topic of much debate. The last five teams that did it fared well, however, improving on their previous year's record after appearing on the show.

FGCU Becomes 1st Ever 15 Seed to Dance to Sweet 16

Over the last four days, little Florida Gulf Coast University has gone from relatively unknown first-time winner of the Atlantic Sun Conference to perhaps the biggest Cinderella in the history of our beloved Mad, Mad March on the parquet.  On Friday, FGCU became just the seventh 15 seed to win a game in the NCAA Tournament when they ousted Georgetown in what many analysts have referred to as the biggest Tourney upset ever.  The win came in the school's first trip to the Big Dance, and in just its second year as a Division I program.  In fact, the school itself has only been around since 1997 and the hoops team wasn't playingat all  until 2002.

Robert Griffin III (RG III) Leaves Game with Concussion

By Mike Goldman
In the 3rd quarter Atlanta Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon slammed into Robert Griffin III.  As you will see in the video below, the hit came after Griffin was in mid-slide.  Unfortunately, for RG III, the initial impact wasn't the end of the hit.  After Weatherspoon hit Griffin the quarterback was then knocked into defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux.  Immediately following both impacts Griffin moved but decided to stay on the ground.  He left the game with a concussion (later confirmed), so his availability next week is doubtful.

By Geno
Kyle Shanahan, son of Mike Shanahan and current offensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins, has been fined $25K for berating an official on Sunday's game versus the Bengals.
 
....still no word on Belichick's fine, who will surely feel the NFL wrath for grabbing an official by the arm.

Pitching Great Roger Clemens Cleared in Congressional Perjury Case

Baseball pitching great Roger Clemens was acquitted Monday on charges that he lied to Congress when he testified that he had never taken performance enhancing drugs back in 2008.  A jury of eight women and four men found Clemens not guilty of each of the six charges he faced, bringing to an end a two month trial that was itself the culmination of a four-year effort by authorities to convict Clemens.  In addition to perjury, he was also charged with making false statements and obstructing Congress.

Artist Renderings of Proposed L.A. NFL Stadium Released

San Francisco-based architectural and design company Gensler this week released a number of artist renderings of the firm's latest vision for Farmer's Field,an NFL stadium in Los Angeles that Gensler hopes to break ground on next year.  The company says that the stadium will be ready for NFL games in 2016, and a bid will be made for the stadium to host the NFL's 50th Super Bowl in 2017.  Of course, LA does not currently have an NFL team, but the project's developers hope the unique stadium will help to change that.
