    Real Madrid have developed a deserved reputation for chewing some footballers who play for the club up and spitting them out. Transfer policy at the Bernabeu can be more about shirt sales and commercial revenue than whether the player is a profile they need in the team. How the players fit together is usually the coach’s problem, hence the often high turnover in the dugout. Even the mighty Zinedine Zidane has had two spells as Bernabeu boss notching a Champions League hat-trick and two La Liga titles to date. The word Galactico was more or less made for him and the generation of footballers that played with Zizou. Think David Beckham and Luis Figo for starters. In more recent times, these Real...
    Fortnite battle royale Chapter 2 has brought out plenty of glitches in the game. Over the seasons, players have been taking advantage of these. While most of them were removed after Epic Games took the appropriate action, some still exist in the game.

Some of these may seem fantastic, but they are temporary. Sooner or later, Epic Games will implement a fix to remove them. In the meantime, it is good to get an idea of how these glitches work. If a player is stuck in one of these gltiches, the best thing to do...
    They’re going on offense. Dozens of New York high school football players and parents gathered in White Plains on Sunday to protest a state decision delaying “high-risk” fall sports amid the coronavirus pandemic. “Let them play!” chanted the group gathered at the Westchester County Center. The demonstration came on what would have been the football season’s opening weekend. However, the New York State High School Athletic Association announced on Thursday that certain sports — also including volleyball and cheerleading — would be delayed until the spring due to virus concerns. Critics questioned the adjournment, citing the Empire State’s low COVID-19 infection rates and the fact that neighboring states like New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware are proceeding with fall athletics. “All we’re asking…...
    Epic Games The start of Fortnite Season 4 introduced a bunch of Mythic weapons into the mix and they definitely threw a wrench into how players experienced the game. Since this season has a Marvel theme, it made sense for Epic Games to give the various heroes their own abilities, such as Silver Surfer’s board, Doctor Doom’s gauntlets, and Groot’s ball. There were many players that complained about how strong these abilities were, and Groot’s shield had a very strange bug that could launch players off the map, so it was clear that changes needed to be made. Since patch notes don’t get released following a new update, we had no idea what was changed in v14.10, but...

Nothing is less sure. According to a survey published five years ago, more than 60% of players in the NBA were bankrupt in the three years following the end of their careers.

Every season, the MLB Trade Deadline comes and goes with some major names moving, but a majority of those rumored to be in deals stay put. Sometimes the rumors were overblown, and other times the asking price was astronomical. Still, more times than not when a player is in trade rumors, it ends up with them getting dealt eventually. It’s hard to come back from the constant questions and speculation around where the player goes next, and that makes it hard to focus on their current home. This season will be no different. There were some superstars...
    NBA player Jamal Murray of the Denver Nuggets dropped 50 points, helping secure game seven against the Utah Jazz on Sunday, but basketball isn't the only reason the Canadian breakout star was driven to tears in a postgame interview. He looked down at his shoes, one of which was painted with the face of George Floyd, the Black man held for more than eight minutes with a Minneapolis cop’s knee on his neck, and the other with that of Breonna Taylor, the Black emergency medical technician who was shot and killed in a botched drug raid. “These shoes mean a lot,” Murray said. “I just want to win, and in life you find things that hold value to you, things to fight...
    Several college football programs canceled practice last week as teams imitated the protests of professional athletes in the NBA, NFL, and other leagues. The football teams at Appalachian State, Baylor, Boston College, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, South Florida, Texas, Texas Tech, and Western Kentucky either canceled practices or staged player walkouts on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday over the shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin, according to CBS Sports. Kenosha, Wisc., police officer Rusten Sheskey shot Blake seven times in the back on Aug. 23 after Blake had wrestled free of police officers and withstood a shot from a taser, according to police. Blake had opened the driver’s side front door of his vehicle and leaned inside when Sheskey...
    President Trump is urging the Big Ten to play the football season because he said these big, strong guys won’t be affected by the coronavirus. During a campaign speech in New Hampshire with Air Force One in the background, President Trump turned his sights to college football once again. Weeks ago, Trump made comments about how it would be a tragedy if the college football season was canceled. “Big Ten, get with it! Open up your season, Big Ten.” He says of players: “These are young strong guys–they’re not gonna be affected by the virus…These are big, strong guys. They will be just fine.” Statistically, college-aged athletes are not in a high-risk age group, according to WHO, as opposed to...

Green, who was announced Friday as a new network contributor for CNN, said the players need to keep on playing, despite the turmoil and protests in the aftermath of the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin. “If we leave our stage and we drop our microphone, we could no longer speak for these people that we are speaking for … We’re taking resources away from ourselves to be able to continue this fight,” Green told CNN host Jake Tapper. The NBA announced Friday that its playoff games will...

    The De La Salle football team, and the seniors who had worked so hard for this reward, we’re supposed to be gearing up for a nationally-televised game in the true land of “Friday Night Lights” a day from now. Most other Bay Area teams would’ve been kicking off their seasons Friday night. But the novel coronavirus pandemic had other ideas, postponing the fall ritual until early January — with the threat of eventual cancellation looming. The Bay Area News Group asked a handful of seniors to reflect on this solemn moment in their young lives and try to put things in perspective.

    Cheaters, hackers, and players who use different mods to play games are plaguing the gaming scene. From Fortnite to Call of Duty Warzone, these cheaters are everywhere. Recently, we witnessed how they are getting more brazen every day. For instance, some set up their cheat mods while live-streaming! This has led to the entire community vocally striking down on game developers and their anti-cheat policies. Epic Games, Infinity Ward, Riot Games, they are all big names and everyone expects them to encourage fair play. Lately, cheaters have been ambushing players in Fortnite tourneys too. Warzone has always had a major issue with the volume of hackers in the lobby. Is this what eSports is coming down to? Jarvis...

The Broncos, Denver Nuggets, Colorado Rockies and Colorado Avalanche joined other teams across the nation to take time away from the field or arenas to join the movement this week.

They have a lot to lose and very little to gain personally.” To understand what the Black Lives Matter movement symbolizes, Rivers says you have to understand the power Black athletes have on and off the field....

One day after Milwaukee Bucks players boycotted their NBA playoff game to protest racial inequality, sending a tidal wave of action across the sports world, the NHL’s players opted to not play on Thursday or Friday. The efforts came in response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis., over the weekend “If you look around this room, there’s a lot of white athletes in here, and I think that’s the statement that’s being made right now,” said the Golden Knights’ Ryan Reaves as he stood in front, and next to, players from the Western Conference bubble. “It’s great that the NBA did this, and...

    After Steve Bannon’s arrest on Thursday, Donald Trump tried to put a Grand Canyon-sized gap between himself and the “We Build The Wall” border scheme. Bannon, Brian Kolfage, Andrew Badolato, and Timothy Shea were indicted on counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering. The federal indictment says the crew pilfered “hundreds of thousands of dollars” and a Bannon-controlled nonprofit received more than $1 million in funds. The federal government is seeking to take possession of the fraudulently purchased items, like the flashy boat Kolfage purchased and used in recent “Trumptilla” boat parades.

    Football : They were recruited during the transfer window, land from Ligue 2 or were waiting their turn on the sidelines last season… They may explode this season. The long 2020-2021 season of League 1, which begins this Friday evening with the Bordeaux-Nantes poster, will undoubtedly have its share of beautiful surprises in store for us. The French championship is in no way the “League of talents” that the LFP sells around the world, but many young players are revealed in each exercise. Today unknown attackers will thus come out of the shadows. Some could thus impose themselves in their respective teams and finally make the nets tremble, likeAmine Gouiri at OGC Nice, Ibrahima Niane at FC...
    One of your most difficult tasks to complete this fantasy baseball season is to accrue as many at-bats as possible. The more at-bats, the greater the chances of bulking up on the offensive counting statistics. Though that may sound simple and basic, understanding that in the time of COVID, it can actually be quite daunting, as we’ve seen numerous series postponed. In addition to postponements, we have our usual rash of injuries hitting every team, as well as numerous managers mixing and matching in an effort to jump-start their array of struggling players. What that means is you have to be diligent in your research and keep a watchful eye over a variety of ever-changing situations. Case in point: the...

So, if you’re ready to turn the fantasy football world on its head and draft WR, WR and WR in your first three picks, maybe 2020 is your year. It could lead to a lopsided roster, but in a pass-happy NFL, it could also be fun. Don’t consider such a bold strategy without adding our wide receiver rankings tiers to your cheat sheet, though.

Shark teeth can unlock a new set of ship cosmetics called the Shrouded Ghost, allowing players to make their sloop or galleon far more spooky. If players miss the August event, they will be able to pick the...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Eagles have officially begun padded practices. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, there are no Eagles pre-season games this year. Leaving practices as the only way players will get a sense of the team before the season starts. Monday’s padded practice was allowed to run for 90 minutes. They can increase by 15 minutes per day and the Birds are permitted to a maximum of 14 padded practices before the start of the season. Head Coach Doug Pederson, who had COVID-19, but has since recovered, spoke to the media this morning. “There’s a fine line with the amount of reps that our starters take and get compared to some of these guys that are backup guys or...
    Getty Javon Hargrave, shown here taking down Tom Brady, will reportedly join the Eagles in 2020. Two defensive starters are down after Javon Hargrave and Derek Barnett surprisingly popped up on the Eagles’ first injury report. Hargrave, the prized free-agent nose tackle, was listed out “multiple weeks” with an upper-body injury while Barnett — the tough guy defensive end — was deemed “week-to-week” with a lower-body ailment. It certainly sent off a few alarms mere hours into the team’s first “live” padded practice but don’t read too much into these early injury reports. The Eagles are taking an extra cautious approach to how they deal with injuries this year. Neither player is in danger of missing the start...

    Ever since its release, Fortnite battle royale has reigned supreme in the BR genre. With games like PUBG, H1Z1, Apex Legends as competition, Fortnite surpassed them all. The level of influence this game holds over the gaming world is tremendous. There are several reasons behind it, but can it be overtaken by a game like Call of Duty Warzone? To get down to it straight, we have to discuss the most discerning possibilities. Firstly, the popularity of both games is based on certain criteria. For instance, the age segregation for both these games is quite varied. For instance, Fortnite appeals to the younger age group much more than adults in in their mid 20’s. Nevertheless, when it comes to the...
    Getty Greg Ward caught a touchdown pass for the Eagles. He can also play some quarterback. Doug Pederson is back at Eagles camp patrolling the field after a brief and healthy bout with COVID-19. He’s ready to hit the ground running. The head coach told reporters he “stayed engaged virtually” with the team throughout his 10-day absence from the facility, including watching practices and joining Zoom meetings from his home office. Yes, the Eagles missed out on OTAs and rookie minicamps but don’t think for a second that they are behind the eight-ball. Conversely, Pederson revealed the team had already installed their entire offensive and defensive playbooks as they plunge into “situational football.” It matched what Zach Ertz...
    Football : Two days away from a hot Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich, FC Barcelona announced on Wednesday that one of its players has tested positive for coronavirus. This Tuesday, nine players who remained in Catalonia and who therefore did not make the trip to Portugal with the first team of FC Barcelona, have been subjected to tests in connection with Covid-19. The list of these men was as follows: Rafinha, Trincao, Alena, Miranda, Pedri, Rosell, Todibo, Matheus Fernandes, or Wague. Barça, however, does not specify the identity of the positive player. Two months ago, Barcelona had already been affected by the virus. A priori no danger of contamination for the entire group, if we are to...
    Don’t let the colorful jelly bean bodies in Fall Guys fool you — this is still a competitive battle royale style game. Unfortunately, that means cheaters can spoil the experience for everybody.

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – When the NBA decided to restart its season in Orlando, many of the league’s coaches and players decided to use their platform to speak out on social injustices and reform in the wake of the momentum built after the George Floyd protests across the country. Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, one of the league’s most outspoken figures, has used his time with the media to share his thoughts on the reparations that he says are needed. Here is a look at what Popovich has said while in the NBA bubble. In his first media session of the restart, Popovich said it was a “seminal moment” for the NBA and they had “an opportunity to...

    Epic Games If you’re a player in Fortnite who craves as much XP as they can get their hands on, you’re possibly somebody who tries to track down all of the XP Coins each time a new round of them are released. Sometimes, you’ll have to collect them for challenges, so you won’t be alone, but if you want to get some extra XP on your account before the end of the season, then you’ll have to scour around the map on your own time. Each week, it seems like Epic sprinkles more of these coins in for players to collect and they can become a nuisance to track down. Thankfully, there are some dedicated players in the...
    LSU linebacker Soni Fonua isn’t a fan of wearing a face shield on his helmet. Football helmets are being outfitted with shields over the mouth section during the 2020 season to help limit the risk of coronavirus.

    Epic Games One of the most anticipated parts of Fortnite Season 3 was going to be the addition of cars into the mix, but we’re now in the final month of the season and these vehicles are still nowhere in sight. After being delayed last month, there’s really no telling what the plan is now for these cars and if Epic will decide to just bite the bullet and release them next season. What’s interesting is that so much information about these vehicles have leaked, but they still aren’t in the game. It’s obvious that Epic still has plans on adding them, and now that the map is practically free of all water, this is as good a...

    The WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational is in its second year in Memphis after being held at Firestone CC in Akron, Ohio from 1999-2018. This year’s event was scheduled to be held over July 4th weekend between the U.S. Open and The Open Championship but the revamped schedule forced it to be moved the week prior to the new date for the PGA Championship. The 10/1 co-favorites at William Hill are Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Thomas, both of whom have wins already in 2020.

    (CBS Miami) — The WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational slides back a month on the revised PGA Tour schedule. The new temporary spot — July 30 through August 2 — puts it a week before this season’s first major. Despite scheduling, this year’s event is sure to be a far cry from the typical warm-up event. For one thing, it’s a World Golf Championship tournament, which puts it a step above the standard Tour stop. The purse ($10.5 million) is bigger, and more FedExCup points (550) are on the line. And while not quite on par with a major, it will certainly feel like one this year. The upcoming FedEx St. Jude boasts the top eight players in the world and...

    (CBS4)- The NFL has returned to training camps and is preparing to play a regular season that is sure to look different from many that we have seen in the past. The coronavirus pandemic has changed league protocols on health and safety and made it unlikely that fans will be in attendance in full force in the fall. Then there are the ongoing protests calling for racial equality, social justice and an end to police brutality. The NFL has addressed these topics in recent months and is working with players on how the league can best use its influence to help these causes. With that, there has been speculation about players renewing Colin Kaepernick’s protest and taking a knee during...
    The Tom Thibodeau “slander” continues — and it’s not just media. Former Pacers All-Star forward David West slammed the Knicks’ hire, saying they should have gone with a younger coach who relates better to players. West told The Athletic he witnessed how badly Thibodeau mismanaged the players on the Timberwolves during the 2017 preseason. Thibodeau was fired in January 2019. West’s remarks come one day after Thibodeau’s buddy, Jeff Van Gundy, said the media has perpetuated “great slander” upon the new Knicks coach. “My thing with the Knicks hire is (that) I saw (while) competing against the (Thibodeau) Timberwolves, anybody that’s honest with you, they saw the way that that situation had deteriorated,” West said. “And the optics of that...
    Valorant’s big content updates are divided into Acts, for smaller additions like new Agents, and Episodes, for bigger additions like maps, and the game’s first Act is about to come to an end. Ahead of Act 2, which is likely to start around Aug. 4, Riot Games announced a few changes coming to Valorant’s ranked mode in the next Act. The biggest new addition for the upcoming Act is what Riot is calling Act Ranks. Act Ranks are how Riot will track and display a player’s ranked progress and accomplishments once an Act ends — though these won’t exist for Act 1. Act Ranks will show up on player profiles and work like a commemorative trophy of your competitive...
    Kyrie Irving has committed $1.5 million to help pay WNBA players who have opted out of the 2020 season due to the coronavirus pandemic or social justice movements. The latest WNBA campaign belatedly got under way behind closed doors on Saturday, but some stars have decided to sit out this year. The season was delayed by the coronavirus pandemic, with health and safety concerns persisting, while the Black Lives Matter movement has come to the fore in the intervening period following the death of George Floyd in police custody. Those players who are continuing protested during the national anthem as the games restarted, and the name of Breonna Taylor – a black woman shot by police officers – was...
    Danny Green (Photo by Katelyn Mulcahy/Getty Images) Several Los Angeles Lakers will take advantage of the league’s new rule allowing social justice messages on jerseys in place of players’ names. While Los Angeles Lakers stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis previously announced that they would wear their last names on their jerseys this season, 10 of his teammates will bear various social justice messages on their backs instead. The NBA gave players a pre-approved list of slogans to choose from that represent major social justice movements. Two starters — Danny Green and JaVale McGee — are planning to showcase social justice on their jerseys. Green will wear “How Many More,” a reference to victims of police brutality. McGee, who is...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – For years, the Penguins would surprise randomly-selected season ticket holders to get their tickets delivered by players on the rosters. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic and the Stanley Cup Qualifiers beginning on August 1, that tradition did not take place this season. In place of the home deliveries, captain Sidney Crosby and some of his teammates took time out of their days to hand-write 66 thank you cards to have mailed to season ticket holders. “The great thing is that our players recognize how important our season ticket holders are to our success as an organization,” said Chad Slencak, the Penguins’ Vice President of Ticketing. “They’ve always been a huge part of our...

    BOSTON (CBS) — Every Celtics player spent some time playing at the NCAA level. And outside of Jayson Tatum, they all probably established a bit of a distaste for Duke. But all of the Celtics’ players and coaches put aside any potential feelings they may have toward Duke as a way of showing their support to Kara Lawson. Lawson on Tuesday shared a photo of the entirety of the Celtics contingent in Orlando sporting Duke women’s basketball shirts in their hotel. It’s been an emotional few days for me. And, while I couldnt be more excited for the opportunity in front of me at Duke University, I would be remiss if I didn’t talk about the team I’m leaving behind. These men...
    Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley voiced support for a subpoena of the NBA commissioner to investigate the league's ties to the Chinese Communist Party. During an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt, Hawley, a frequent critic of the Chinese Communist Party, said he would be open to initiating Senate hearings on the NBA's financial ties to the country, saying that the NBA should publicly disclose its financial dealings with China. "Should the Judiciary Committee subpoena Adam Silver, the NBA commissioner, to come in and talk to you?" Hewitt asked. "Well, that’s a great idea," Hawley said. "You know, I sent my letter on Friday that drew the rebuke from the ESPN reporter [and] was addressed to Adam Silver,...
