    This Andrew Shaw Headbutt Goal Was Disallowed in Double-OT (Video)

    Marcus Kruger was the overtime hero of last night’s epic Game 2 battle between the Chicago Blackhawks and Anaheim Ducks in the Western Conference Finals, but had it not been for the NHL’s reluctance to allow players to score with their head (intentionally), this Andrew Shaw headbutt goal would have ended things one overtime period […]

    Player KO’s Opponent With Headbutt After MASL Playoff Match (Video)

    Talk about being a sore loser. Following a 10-7 loss to the Baltimore Blast in MASL playoff action on Sunday, Missouri Comets defender Andre Braithwaite walked up to Blast captain Pat Healy as if he was going to congratulate him, only to knock him out with a vicious headbutt. Check it out: Cold-blooded. So, was it […]

    25 Headbutt GIFs: Because Some Athletes Always Use Their Heads

    Headbutting your opponent is illegal in—wait, let me check—yep, pretty much every single sport there is. So, theoretically, headbutt GIFs should be scarce. They are not scarce, though. Despite the fact that headbutts almost always result in ejections, fines, and suspensions, they still happen every once in a while when players lose their cool or suspect the […]

    Kevin Garnett Headbutts Dwight Howard, Throws Ball at Him (Video)

    Kevin Garnett had another one of his moments on Tuesday night—and believe me, there’s been a few of them this season. It happened in the first quarter of Brooklyn’s game against the Houston Rockets.  After getting tangled with Dwight Howard under the Nets’ rim, Garnett and Dwight Howard exchanged subtle shots before things really got […]

    Memphis Player Headbutts His Teammates Without a Helmet (Video)

    Memphis tight end Alan Cross was able to take part in the entire Miami Beach Bowl earlier today, where he recorded three receptions for 69 yards and a touchdown during a 55-48 double overtime victory over BYU.  However, he probably should have been taken in for concussion testing prior to the opening kickoff after cameras caught him […]

    Things got a little testy last night between the Colts and Titans. And by “testy,” I mean Indianapolis fell behind early—again—so linebacker Erik Walden decided to vent his frustration by ripping the helmet off Tennessee tight end Delanie Walker…and then headbutting him while his own helmet was still on. No joke. Midway through the second quarter, with Tennessee up […]

    Headbutting: Is it safe? Should it require a helmet? I’m guessing that Alex Boone of the San Francisco 49ers would answer those questions with a “yes” and a “no,” respectively.  Although, his teammate and recipient of the un-helmeted headbutt during Sunday’s game, Colin Kaepernick, might feel a little differently—at least if his facial expression after receiving […]

    Remember the good old days when it was just soccer fans who were batsh*t insane? Back then, if somebody got viciously attacked on a soccer field, whether it be a player or a referee, you knew some lunatic fan was to blame. Today, that’s not the case. When you hear about some crazy attack at […]

    In the everyday world, they call it a “headbutt.”  In the soccer world, it’s called a “Zidane.” The headbutt earned that named in the soccer world after famous soccer star Zinedine Zidane headbutted Italian opponent Marco Materazzi during the finals of the 2006 World Cup.  That act earned Zidane a red card in his final […]
