The NFL's Reign Of Dominance May Finally Be Over
Huffington Post - 4 months
You could argue there’s never been a better time to be a sports fan than 2016. Every one of North America’s premier leagues ― NFL, NHL, MLB and NBA ― possess major national TV deals. Each one features primetime slots for their respective products. The NFL has undoubtedly capitalized the most on this trend, maintaining supremacy over its competition. Pro football remains fresh with a stranglehold on Sundays. It also enjoys primetime opportunities on Monday and Thursday nights.  The league has a 16-game schedule that fans can easily digest. It presents an ideal opportunity to indulge in both fantasy sports and the insanely popular RedZone channel. And don’t forget about gambling either, which the NFL has literally banked on for years, as its popularity has skyrocketed. As opposed to betting on baseball’s random pitching matchups for 162 games or setting an NBA fantasy lineup every day, the NFL has found the happy medium in this department. Then again, the NFL season never trul ...

ESPN's Rachel Nichols Shuts Down Brian Windhorst After Sexist On-Air Comment
Huffington Post - 9 months
@bustedcoverage windy... pic.twitter.com/zQXXrJ54Ju — ... (@Cleveland_4life) June 10, 2016 Journalist Rachel Nichols is known for not tolerating nonsense. In September 2014 alone, she earned applause from across the industry for skewering boxer Floyd Mayweather over his domestic violence record and slamming NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for his handling of the the Ray Rice circus. And so when ESPN writer Brian Windhorst appeared on her show “The Jump” on Friday and directed a loaded comment her way, Nichols refused to let him off the hook. It started when Windhorst was asked whether he was “hurt” that LeBron James currently follows Nichols and not him on Twitter. “I don’t care,” Windhorst responded. “He’s sliding into Rachel’s DMs.” Nichols immediately reacted to the words, shaking her head and, at one point, turning to the camera and lifting her hands into the air -- as if to say, is he kidding me?

15 TO WATCH: RICK HORROW’S TOP SPORTS NEWS/ BUSINESS/ MARKETING/ENDORSEMENT ISSUES FOR THE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 22 With Jamie Swimmer —While Stephen Curry may be playing the best basketball on the planet, he is quick to admit that he looks up to LeBron James, but not in a basketball framework. According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Warriors point guard “can’t help but admire” James for his ever-expanding business empire. Curry said, “He’s obviously handled that part of his career very well and he’s a great influence in that regard.” Curry is certainly expanding his business portfolio – he currently has equity in Under Armour as part of his sponsorship deal and is a sponsor of water filtration brand Brita, JBL headphones, Degree deodorant, Muscle Milk, Express, and ankle-brace maker ZAMST. But James’ endorsements include a lifelong partnership with Nike, and deals with Sprite, Kia, Samsung, Beats by Dre, and Blaze Pizza.

Roger Goodell's $34 Million Salary
Yahoo News - about 1 year
By most accounts, 2014 was a particularly bad year for professional football. Star NFL players, including Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson, were embroiled in very ugly and very high-profile domestic-abuse scandals. The president was calling the game unsafe while Congress was lobbying to get the league stripped of its status as a nonprofit. Former players were challenging a class-action settlement over the effects of concussions and a public campaign to rename of the league’s most storied teams became a cultural touchpoint.

    Age 27
    On November 28, 2014, it was announced that Rice won his appeal to be reinstated in the NFL.
    More Details Hide Details On January 15, 2015, Rice and the Ravens reportedly agreed to settle in Rice's lawsuit against the team. He had sued for $3.529 million in back pay that he would have earned for the final 15 weeks after serving the NFL's 2-game suspension. The settlement came immediately before the hearing was to begin in Baltimore. This effectively ended the litigation between Rice and his former team. Source: NFL.com
    While on suspension for his domestic violence case, Rice was released by the Ravens on September 8, 2014.
    More Details Hide Details After the public release of the video of the incident, the NFL announced Rice was suspended indefinitely. Moreover, the Ravens recalled all Rice items from their pro shop as well as other known stores nationwide, and announced an exchange program the day after. Shortly after, it was announced that Rice would appeal the suspension on the grounds that he was suspended twice for the same offense, which is a violation of league rules.
    For the incident, Rice was suspended for the first two games of the 2014 NFL season on July 25, 2014.
    More Details Hide Details The criminal charges were later dropped after Rice agreed to undergo court-supervised counseling.
