Miami Dolphins owner: No decision on anthem protest discipline

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross felt a need to publicly clarify the franchise’s stance on potential punishments for any on-field protest of the national anthem. “We haven’t made a decision on what we would do, if anything, at that point,” Ross said in a statement released by the Dolphins on Friday. It was first revealed by the Associated Press on Thursday that the Dolphins...

Immediate buy-in paying early dividends for Butch Davis, FIU

Last season with the NHL’s Dallas Stars, former Stanley Cup-winning coach Ken Hitchcock called player buy-in something you can get at Walmart. But second-year FIU football coach Butch Davis disagrees, suggesting that buy-in from everyone in your program is crucial for success in today’s college landscape. “One of the biggest challenges is getting kids to buy in to what your culture...
Dan Mullen, Florida Gators players bring swagger to SEC Media Days

Dan Mullen, Florida Gators players bring swagger to SEC Media Days

The last three SEC teams wrapped up Thursday at Media Days with all of the electricity of a soggy bag of burritos. The coaches spoke in monotones all week, sometimes struggled to hear questions in the new venue and were almost unanimous in their decisions to wear brown shoes. Was beige not available? The players endured questions about their go-to dance moves and favorite candy. There was high praise...

New coach Dan Mullen’s Florida Gators fighting for consistency

Looking at Florida from afar the past several years, Dan Mullen has seen a program that has lost the consistency it once had when he was part of two national championships as the Gators’ offensive coordinator. “That sticks out with the program,” he said earlier this week at SEC Media Days. “The last five years, Florida’s had two four-win seasons and played in two SEC...

Miami Dolphins could suspend kneeling players; but policy not finalized

Miami Dolphins players who protest on the field during the national anthem this season could be suspended up to four games, according to a team policy submitted to the NFL. However, a team source said Thursday that the issue would be addressed during the season and that all options are still on the table. All teams needed to submit a policy as part of a broader detrimental conduct guideline, before...

Jefferson, Ivey get chance to redefine legacy at UF

They aren’t supposed to be here. OK, maybe they could have ended up in Atlanta this week as members of the Falcons, watching SEC Media Days on TV. But not here, representing the University of Florida and answering questions about despair and resolve. Cece Jefferson should be in the NFL. So should Martez Ivey. Based on their five-star, can’t-miss ratings coming out of high school, a fourth...

No-brainer for National League to adopt designated hitter

Talk of instituting a universal designated hitter is gaining traction among players and it’s the right thing to do. In Detroit, I’m probably preaching to the choir. Since the American League adopted the DH in 1973, it’s been a mainstay and a blessing that has extended the careers of Willie Horton and Victor Martinez. But I grew up a Dodgers fan in Los Angeles and I can tell you it...

NASCAR’s Big 3 are as dominant as ever, why are we pretending anything else matters?

We’ve all been kidding ourselves. That we is collective, by the way: It’s the whole lot of NASCAR reporters, fans, drivers, sponsors, everyone. It’s me. It’s you. All of us, even those only tangentially interested in, or affiliated with, the sport are included. We got punked. And that’s because while yes, there are technically still seven races to go before the Cup Series...

Major League Baseball fans turning gray while millennials tuning out

Travis Tobin turned to his 8-year-old son, Gus, as they sat in Section 106 of Target Field last week and asked: “Is this boring?” Gus, wearing a Twins hat and T-shirt, shook his head “no.” He chewed on his glove and followed the action attentively, even as minutes passed between balls in play. His mother, Erin, noted the interest he gained after watching the movie “Sandlot...
Will Washington remember this All-Star Game 50 years later? Something tells me yes.

Will Washington remember this All-Star Game 50 years later? Something tells me yes.

If you were one of 43,843 fans at the All-Star Game on Tuesday night at Nationals Park, you probably had a wonderful night with a storm that just missed, a record 10 home runs, about half of them hit by likely future Hall of Famers and even a competitive game with the American League winning 8-6 in 10 innings.  But I can practically promise that 10 years or even 50 years from now, you will remember...

Are the Nationals playoffs contenders? A lot would need to change ... and soon

What is wrong with the Washington Nationals? Fans are asking that question because the Nats have been the most disappointing team in baseball this season. Washington was supposed to be a powerhouse, but so far the team's record is a mediocre 48-48 (48 wins, 48 losses). So what's wrong with the Nats? Let's take a look. Pitching: Pitching was supposed to be a strength, but the Nats have only the eighth-best...

The British Open challenge: Don’t do too much, or too little, to the course

Martin Slumbers, the chief executive of the R&A, has a very particular memory of the moment he truly understood the effect of the weather on the British Open. The 147th edition teed off Thursday at Scotland’s Carnoustie Golf Links and is Slumbers’ third year in charge of the tournament. However, on the third day of his first championship at Royal Troon in 2016, he received a rude awakening...

Dodgers add Manny Machado with eye on another World Series run

Two months ago, the Los Angeles Dodgers were a wreck, at 10 games under .500 and ravaged by injuries. Today, they will start the second half of the season in first place in the National League West, with the American League’s starting All-Star shortstop on their roster. The Dodgers acquired Manny Machado from the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday in exchange for five prospects, headlined by Yusniel...

Brittany Lincicome will play golf against the men: Where’s the fuss?

A 9-year-old Brittany Lincicome was not trying to make a statement when she hit from the men’s tees in her first official round of golf. The only reason she played the par-3 course that day was to hang out with her father and her two older brothers, whom she idolized. Lincicome was the quintessential kid sister, shadowing her siblings and swinging from her heels to try to keep up. Before long...

Bill Murphy, a 19-year-old student at an art college in Boston, skipped class on Sept. 28, 1960, and bought a $2 ticket to Fenway Park. Ted Williams was playing his last game in the major leagues.

Does Hurricanes safety Jaquan Johnson still think about last year’s blowout loss to Clemson? ‘It pops in my head every day’

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — As the Hurricanes’ contingent drove to The Westin Charlotte hotel for their turn at ACC media days Wednesday morning, they passed by Bank of America Stadium. Just the sight of it brought back bad memories. Only seven months ago, Miami was crushed by Clemson 38-3 in the league’s championship game at that stadium on Dec. 2. &ldquo...

After shedding questions about instability, Big 12's next challenge is winning titles

The Big 12 took a hit during its football Media Days. On Monday, the conference was disappointed to learn that it had not been awarded a host role for a future men's basketball Final Four. Other than that, the league wrapped up two days of interviews gabbing mostly about routine football topics. Will someone beside Oklahoma win the conference? (No) Is this the year Texas reverses fortune? (By Texas...

The game was grinding. Paul Molitor’s wheels were turning. Two outs, top of seventh, runners on second and third. One of baseball’s best hitters, J.D. Martinez, staring down Twins reliever Trevor Hildenberger. Molitor scanned a laminated card full of data from the Twins’ analytics department. Each pitcher and opposing batter are assigned a number on a color-coded matchup grid: Green...

Aaron Judge — huge talent, phenomenal trade bait

Brian Cashman likes to portray himself as fearless, as a willing servant to whatever it takes to win a 28th World Series for the New York Yankees. He has not been afraid to bid adieu to a successful manager, as he did with Joe Girardi. He has not been afraid to stare down an icon like Derek Jeter or shout down a personality the size of Alex Rodriguez. He also has not been afraid to jump out of an...

Woods says he can win in Britain. Stop snickering

It has been five years and four back surgeries since Tiger Woods last contended at a British Open. He has not swung a club in the event since 2015, when he missed the cut. On Thursday at Carnoustie, Woods will once again be making a comeback. Feel free to yawn or roll your eyes. The golf world has been here before, and not long ago. In April, the breathless longing for Woods to reclaim a piece of...
Can the streaming era lift niche sports?

Can the streaming era lift niche sports?

Karate Combat, a full-contact karate league, held its first event in Miami in April. Only a few hundred fans were in attendance, which was intentional for this niche sports organization that launched this year and is far more focused on making money from media deals than putting people in seats. Michael DePietro, Karate Combat’s chief executive, expects 65-70 percent of the venture’s revenue...

Cal Ripken Jr.: MLB should supplement the Home Run Derby with a skills challenge

Orioles legend Cal Ripken Jr. has some thoughts on how to spice up baseball's All-Star Game and they include MLB borrowing a page from the NBA and NHL. "I always liked the skills challenge concept and idea," said Ripken, who played in 19 Midsummer Classics during his Hall of Fame career. "I know I participated in a few of them early, when we had the relay-throwing contest, and I think...

So this comedian walks onto a golf course: The unlikely rise of Michael Collins at ESPN

Michael Collins, the unlikely ESPN golf analyst, was doing the broadcast for a PGA Tour event not long ago when he heard a producer's voice in his ear. "He goes, 'Hey, someone just emailed and said that dude sounds like Tupac and Fat Albert had a baby - can you take him off the air please?' " Collins recalled with a chuckle. When the live broadcast turned to Collins a few minutes later,...

Progress for Marlins: Considered 'not just a rollover team'

Progress for Marlins: Considered 'not just a rollover team'

By one reading of the Derek Jeter meter, not much has changed with the Miami Marlins since he took over. They have by far the worst run differential in the National League. Their record has been the NL's worst for much of the season. They're a distant last in the majors in attendance. But within the franchise, optimism is the highest it has been since unpopular owner Jeffrey Loria put the Marlins...

Florida coach Dan Mullen is no closer to knowing who his starting quarterback is now than he was at the end of the spring.

A record 10 home runs . A slew of strikeouts. The all-or-nothing All-Star Game mirrored what baseball has become. Astros teammates Alex Bregman and George Springer homered on consecutive pitches to begin the 10th inning, and the American League beat the National League 8-6 Tuesday night for its sixth straight win.

Florida players confident team will contend for SEC championship

Usually when a new football coach takes over a 4-7 program where the expectation is to play for championships, a lengthy building/rebuilding process is certain to follow to get back to where you hope to be. Naturally, it takes time. Well, let’s just say the Florida Gator fans are not a patient lot. They expect to start winning again now, this season, in Year 1 under Dan Mullen. That was the...

Considering Jason Taylor’s pedigree for bone-crunching hits, the Hall of Fame defensive end has no problems acknowledging the dangers of football.

The three stenographers had blank looks of relief on their faces and charred fingertips where sparks had been flying only seconds before. They had been in charge of taking down every word said by Jimbo Fisher during his first ever appearance at SEC Media Days. He was fast, but not furious. Instead, he spoke of his love for Florida State, the school where he won a national title and left a fan base...
Learning from his mistakes: How Willie Taggart got it right at FSU

Learning from his mistakes: How Willie Taggart got it right at FSU

As he walked out of that office in December of 2002, Willie Taggart was angry with himself. Furious even. He had just interviewed for his first head coaching job, and it had not gone well. At all. Taggart was only 25 years old at the time. So, in truth, he might have been a little too inexperienced to replace longtime head coach Jack Harbaugh at his alma mater, Western Kentucky, anyway. But he had...

Many people feel devastated after their favorite team loses. Sometimes they have trouble sleeping. (Yes, I speak from personal experience.) That raises some legitimate questions: Why suffer?

The lesson is that if you're strongly...

2018 fantasy football RB rankings: Gurley overtakes Bell

Well, it was fun while it lasted. When my overall player rankings came out on Monday, I had Le'Veon Bell as my top player, ahead of Todd Gurley. My reasoning was that Bell had a longer, more trustworthy track record of top performance, and that his receiving prowess spelled the difference in PPR formats (to which The Post's fantasy coverage defaults). It didn't take long at all, however, for news...
