NFL

If you are into sport, you know the buzz everywhere that the NFL and three teams head to the courtroom. Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross responded late Wednesday night to allegations made by Brian Flores in a lawsuit a day earlier, calling them “false, malicious and defamatory” and promising to defend his “personal integrity” and that of the organization. Tuesday, former Coach Flores filed a lawsuit in Manhattan federal court against the NFL and three teams, the Dolphins, New York Giants, and Denver Broncos, alleging racial discrimination in hiring practices. As part of the lawsuit, Flores alleges that Ross offered him $100,000 per loss during the 2019 season, his first as head coach, in an attempt to “tank” to strengthen the value of the Dolphins’ draft pick.

COLLEGE

Texas A&M Head Football Coach Jimbo Fisher spent part of his news conference about national signing day responding to those accusing the Aggies of having $30 million to spend on a player’s name, image, and likeness benefits. Fisher said coaches, college administrators, and the media in and out of the SEC spread the bogus information on social media.
