Bradley hoping incredible victory will be catalyst for Swansea survival act
- December 03, 2016

Six defeats on the trot is a bad look, not least because Palace led Swansea 4-3 going into stoppage time in Wales, but more concerning is the statistic showing Palace have by far the worst points ratio of any team in English football in 2016. (more...)
Belichick 'disappointed' on Gronk: 'Nobody's worked harder'
- December 03, 2016

The Patriots used their injured reserve/return designation on quarterback Jacoby Brissett on Wednesday, so the team wouldn't be able to place Gronkowski on injured reserve and activate him if they make a deep playoff run. "We do not expect that he will be able to play for the remainder of the 2016 season, but will await the results of tomorrow's surgery before making a final determination", the statement read".

Giteau: Cheeky Jones enjoys stirring the pot unlike Cheika
- December 03, 2016

Cheika returned serve by claiming Jones had tarnished his legacy in Australia by constantly attacking his native country and also questioning the style of England prop Dan Cole. "I think from a team perspective we're in a reasonable state". Of Wallaby sides to play 10 or more matches in a year, only two teams - those in 1958 and 2005 - have had a poorer winning percentage than what Cheika's men will end up with (40 per cent) if they don't hit their straps at Twickenham .

NBA Recaps: Nets end seven-game losing streak
- December 03, 2016

Rivers had to be held back by players and assistant coaches after he was ejected in the first of two overtimes during the team's 127-122 loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday. "We went showtime, and I think when that happens, you deserve to lose the game, I really do". Pierce had played just 17 minutes all season but logged 29 minutes in this one, such an increase in workload that Paul pushed down on his chest a few times on the court at one point, pretending to give CPR after Pierce fell on ...

- December 03, 2016

Though LeBron's victorious NBA Finals performance, including 30 points, 11 rebounds, and 9 assists per game , was enough to earn him the Finals MVP award, Stone says it was the city of Cleveland that served as the deciding factor in his being named Sportsperson of the Year. (more...)
PATRIOTS: Not the usual playmakers in this win
- December 03, 2016

Without overstating the obvious, he is still the one quarterback you want if you want to win a tough battle. It was the 500th win in franchise history for the Patriots, the first original AFL franchise to reach the mark. Until push came to shove in the fourth quarter, after the Jets had grabbed a 17-12 lead, the Patriots' passing attack mostly was relegated to what you might call a Gabbertesque approach: short passes with little threat of stretching the field deep.

The Italian, who won the Premier League and the FA Cup during his four years with the Citizens, was most recently manager of Serie A giants Inter Milan but left the side just before the start of the new season. We have to get past this period. "We have been a bit tense at some of the set-plays we have done this week, as you would imagine". Steve relays the fears of the whole group - we have a lot other investors - and of course they're anxious. (more...)
Trump speaks with Bach to express support for LA Olympic bid
- December 03, 2016

No surplus was projected in the new budget but organisers said a contingency fund of $491.9 million would be available. "And this is a plan that finally reflects the IOC's Olympic Agenda 2020 philosophy". "Instead of mortgaging our futures on unknowable construction costs, our Games will capitalize responsibly on our investments that are transforming our city for the future". (more...)
Love's 40 points, including first quarter record 34, pace Cavs
- December 03, 2016

Team chemistry was questioned and injuries to Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love ended the road for their championship goal. His final total was good for the second-best single scoring total ever and pushed the Cavs out to a 15 point lead that never dipped below 11 after they got out to a 15 point lead after the opening 12 minutes.

Australia coach Michael Cheika may snub meeting with referee Jaco Peyper
- December 03, 2016

Cheika could not resist one last dig, saying Jones had tarnished his legacy by some of the comments he made during England's historic 3-0 series win over Australia in June. "We have had a lot of new combinations and there was probably a bit of a mental hangover from past year when we got together and we thought it would click". (more...)

Mark Helfrich fired at Oregon
- December 03, 2016

This is the first season since 2004 that OR had a losing record and missed playing in a bowl game. There was little positive to be said about the season for the Ducks. The Ducks program has fallen down after a tough year of losing and fired the coach who was responsible for the fall. But we heard Rob Mullens mention the "trajectory" the program was on. (more...)
Dana White says that McGregor relinquishing the belt was a joint decision
- December 03, 2016

But at the end of the day, him doing that tied up the (featherweight) division for a year. Last week the UFC announced that McGregor relinquished his 145-pound title, which then made Jose Aldo the new undisputed champion while Max Holloway and Anthony Pettis prepared to fight for a new interim belt at UFC 206 in Toronto.

Jones stops 31 shots, Sharks beat Canadiens 2-1
- December 03, 2016

They'll need everyone to pull their weight as convincingly as possible, including Brian Flynn who joined the team out West, in order to put an end to the 17-year winless drought in San Jose. "Obviously it's nice when you've got a little break to have that game going into it than something else". It was the second consecutive loss for the Canadiens who are 1-2-0 on their current five-game road trip and 4-5-1 on the road this season. (more...)

- December 03, 2016

They now have 25 this season, two more than they had all of last season. They played a tremendous game and played their tail off. He was the first player with three sacks and a 40-plus-yard touchdown in the same game since 1982, when sacks became an official statistic. (more...)

Southgate used the All Blacks as an example to follow on Thursday, when his unveiling meant a meeting with England rugby union coach Eddie Jones had to be postponed. "The important thing is we've got an opportunity to talk about environment and culture around the team". Liverpool's Jordan Henderson replaced the Manchester United captain for the two games he missed and Southgate is keen to "develop more leaders in that group". (more...)

Harden scores 20 in Rockets' runaway win over Denver 128-110
- December 03, 2016

So it's probably safe to say that Steph Curry is due for a substantial raise and for sure he's going get offers from other teams. Draymond Green bullied his way into a jumpball, continuing his late-game defensive exploits. Golden State played the final 3:25 of the second overtime without Stephen Curry , who fouled out on an offensive foul, his first disqualification since December 13, 2013. (more...)
