Texans’ Rick Smith in dubious company among NFL general managers
Houston Chronicle - over 1 year
Texans general manager Rick Smith is a polarizing figure among the team’s fan base during its struggles over his tenure, with a particular emphasis on the team’s drafting miscues. He’s also in dubious company among his fellow NFL general managers. Smith is one of only two general managers in the past 25 years to serve at least 10 seasons with his team not reaching a conference championship game. In his 10th season, Smith has two playoff appearances as Texans GM, with a 74-79 record through week 10 of this season. The only other GM to match Smith is Cincinnati’s Mike Brown. But unlike Smith, Brown also owns his franchise, so his job security as GM seems pretty safe. Since Brown took over as the owner/GM in the 1991 season, the Bengals haven’t won a playoff game – including wild-card losses to the Texans in 2011 and 2012 – and lost more than 10 games nine times from 1991 to 2002. Dallas’ Jerry Jones is the other member of the NFL’s owner/GM club, and his team hasn’t reached the ...

WATCH: Actress Comments About 'Lesbian Lacrosse Team'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
In talking about the Philadelphia Eagles and college football with ESPN's "First Take," actress Holly Robinson Peete got a little off-topic. The former "21 Jump Street" and "Hangin' With Mr. Cooper" star, who's married to ex-Eagles and USC quarterback Rodney Peete, mentioned she went to Sarah Lawrence College, which does not have big-time time sports. "We had like a lesbian lacrosse team," she said. Co-hosts Cari Champion and Skip Bayless appeared uncomfortable, prompting Peete to remark, "You OK, Skip?" Champion issued an on-air apology for Peete's "inappropriate" comment. (Note that in the edited YouTube video above, the apology appears before the studio sequence with Peete.) The Huffington Post left a message with a rep listed as Peete's agent but did not receive an immediate response. Peete became the latest celebrity to draw fire for a perceived anti-gay slur. In late June, Alec Baldwin called reporter George Clark a "toxic little queen" in a tweet after ...

L.A. City Council backs proposed $1.2-billion downtown NFL stadium
LATimes - over 4 years
A proposed $1.2-billion NFL stadium in downtown Los Angeles secured crucial approvals from the City Council on Friday, a major milestone in efforts to return pro football to the city after a 17-year absence. The action clears the path for developer Anschutz Entertainment Group to seek a team and proceed with planning for a 72,000-seat stadium on the southwest edge of downtown. But key hurdles remain, including AEG’s ability to strike a deal with the NFL, which has rejected past bids by Los Angeles business and civic leaders for a team. The council voted 12-0 to approve an array of documents that pave the way for the stadium and an accompanying $315-million upgrade of the nearby Convention Center. City Councilman Paul Koretz called the plan “the economic development project of our generation.” “This is probably the most important decision that any of us will make in our political careers,”  he said. Parts of the agreements were rewritten at the last minute after it was ann ...
