    As far as fan attacks on soccer referees go, this has to be the worst I’ve ever seen. It comes from a Congolese match between DCMP and Dauphin Noir, with the fans of the former storming the field upon the final whistle to take their frustrations out on the poor official.

    Draymond Green Got a Ref to Admit He Was Wrong (Video)

    His NBA-leading 10 triple-doubles in 49 games is pretty impressive, but on Tuesday night the Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green accomplished his most impressive feat of the season.  And it had nothing to do with stats.

    Bill Belichick rarely shows any emotion in public (except maybe anger), but on Sunday during Fox’s broadcast of the Patriots-Eagles game, the New England head coach looked like he needed a hug. Too bad for him that line judge Sarah Thomas wasn’t giving in to any of his advances…
