In their attempt to build their own Big Three in order to compete with the three elite teams in the NBA, the New York Knicks traded a team for Melo and that Chauncey fellow.
Veteran Pittsburgh Steelers WR Hines Ward made his opinion about the NFL known. They may or may not make sense. Depends on your definition of “sense”.
Last night the NFL season kicked off as the defending Superbowl Champion New Orleans Saints played the Minnesota Favres in a rematch of last year’s NFC Championship game, yielding the same result: a Saints victory.
Before the game, however, players on both teams made a statement by holding up one finger as a solidarity gesture.
