    This week's opening of NFL training camps has revealed a new league-wide fashion trend: The Guardian Cap. The waffled helmet covering creates a soft-shell layer that can significantly reduce the impact of helmet-to-helmet hits, according to the company.  The Guardian Cap, which closely resembles rugby's scrum cap, was adopted during the annual league meetings in March as part of the NFL's ongoing effort to reduce head trauma during practices. San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle works on a blocking drill during Wednesday's practice. Kittle can be seen wearing a Guardian Cap, which reduces the force of collisions  Tennessee Titans players wear guardian caps on their helmets as they warm up before practice According to the league, the cap can reduce the force of head contact by 10 percent when worn by one player, and by 20 percent if every player involved in a collision has one covering their helmet. Players at certain positions deemed to be at greater risk are required to wear the caps between the start of training camp and the second preseason game, when concussion rates...
    ROMAN ABRAMOVICH'S 19-year ownership of Chelsea has seen SEVENTEEN different managers take charge of at least one match. Now the club is up for sale as a consequence of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, with Thomas Tuchel the last man to be recruited by the billionaire oligarch. 5All Chelsea managers since 2003 - including interim and caretaker bosses 5Mourinho was the first manager to be recruited by AbramovichCredit: Getty Images - Getty But out of the world class bosses brought in to Roman's Empire over the last two decades, who is statistically the most successful? Jose Mourinho was employed twice, while Guus Hiddink had two spells in interim control, and both Ray Wilkins and Steve Holland had one game each in caretaker charge. That means overall Abramovich made twelve permanent managerial appointments at Chelsea. Claudio Ranieri was boss when Abramovich bought the club for £140million in 2003, and it took 59 games for him to get the chop. That's despite guiding the Blues to a second-place finish in the Premier League and the Champions League semi-finals, with an overall...

    A devout atheist and 'humanist chaplain' at Harvard University is set to lead the progressive university's collection of religious leaders.  Greg Epstein, 44, has been named president of the chaplains for the religious community at the Ivy League School. Epstein, who has served as Harvard's 'humanist chaplain' since 2005 is a devout atheist and caters to fellow nonreligious believers as well as agnostics and humanists at the Cambridge, Massachusetts, school.  Epstein, who was raised in a reformed Jewish household in Queens, New York, said his elevation to the position is meant to be inclusive of larger and larger numbers of Americans and especially progressive Harvard students who identify as spiritual but not religious.    Greg Epstein will become the head of representatives of the religious community at the Ivy League School And a reformed Jew shall lead them: Epstein's road from Queens to Harvard Epstein, 44, was raised in Flushing, Queens, as a self-described 'assimilated and disinterested reform Jew' in the nation's most diverse borough.

    The state of policing in America a year after George Floyd was killed George Floyds family meets with Biden, lawmakers: Get this taken care of Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad © Provided by Dot Esports In this week’s League of Legends patch, the developers are looking back and assessing changes made earlier in the season. This includes hitting jungle Morgana with the nerf hammer—a champion that has been running rampant in solo queue and competitive play over the course of the last month—and giving some much-needed love to Ryze, who’s left much to be desired since the Rift’s item shake-up in the preseason. Senna and Frostfire Gauntlet, along with Master Yi and Duskblade, are also in line for adjustments in Patch 11.11. The devs don’t want champions to feel “bound” to a certain item or incentivized to play a specific style that feels “out of character.” These changes should give the champions more options when it comes to choosing a Mythic item, helping to sharpen their identities and playstyles.

    This week, Inside the Clubhouse breaks down the reasons for the Willy Adames trade, the rising trade chatter around Joey Gallo and more. Despite what Milwaukee Brewers president of baseball operations David Stearns says, they would not have traded for Willy Adames had Luis Urias taken hold of the starting shortstop job. Karinchak, 25, ranks in the 99th percentile in strikeout percentage (49.4) and near the top in many other statistics among relievers. He’s sharing the ninth inning with Clase, getting most of his action when left-handed hitters are up in the order, and has generated a whiff rate that ranks best in baseball on his fastball that team officials believe plays faster than his 95.9 mph average. Clase, 23, has consistently featured a 100-101 mph cutter that has overpowered hitters since being acquired from the Rangers for Corey Kluber in 2019. He has a below league-average strikeout rate, but ranks in the 99th percentile in barrel percentage (1.6) while his groundball rate (72.2 percent) ranks second among qualified relievers. But the biggest surprise has been Shaw, who was almost...

    The NBA reportedly prevented $1.5 billion in projected television and sponsorship losses thanks to the league's bubble at Disney World, which sheltered as many as 22 teams from the coronavirus pandemic for 100 days at a cost of $180 million.

    Catholic League President Bill Donohue said Monday that Black Lives Matter (BLM) is “one of the greatest threats to the health and safety of black Americans today.” While BLM protesters insist that the police and law enforcement endanger black Americans, it is actually the Black Lives Matter group itself that poses a greater threat, Dr. Donohue contends. On its website, Black Lives Matter calls for “a national defunding of police” and “prison abolition,” Donohue notes, but the elimination of the police force and the emptying of prisons would mean that “blacks would suffer the most.” Black Lives Matter Chicago has been especially vocal about defunding both police and the prison system, yet Chicago “is where black lives matter the least,” Donohue adds, where “black-on-black shootings are routine, especially on weekends.” More insidious still, Black Lives Matter is “doing everything it can to subvert the aspirations of black people” themselves, he contends, citing a recent Gallup survey that found that 81 percent of blacks “want the police to spend the same amount of time (61 percent) or more time (20 percent)...
    Drew Angerer/Getty Images WNBA players have begun wearing shirts endorsing Rev. Raphael Warnock, a challenger to Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), to protest Loeffler’s involvement in the league and her comments against the Black Lives Matter movement. Before playing the Atlanta Dream on Tuesday — the team Loeffler is a co-owner of — players on the Chicago Sky wore shirts that read “Vote Warnock.” Don’t boo…VOTE ????

Instead, she suggested players, coaches, and fans wear jerseys with the American flag printed on them. “This same group fell silent over the fourth of July weekend when an 8-year-old girl was murdered under the ‘mob rule’ that I warned about days earlier,” she wrote in reference to Black Lives Matter. “This is not a political movement that the...
    NFL. (Photo by Tim Warner/Getty Images) What if we don’t have an 2020 NFL season, as some players are skeptical.Trey Wingo tweeted out a bombshell about how the 2020 NFL season might not happen. The longtime ESPN television personality tweeted out on Sunday afternoon what he’s hearing from players in the league. “In texts from several prominent NFL players today right now they’re putting the odds of the season at 50-60%. Many of them are saying less confident now than they were two weeks ago. Posturing? Maybe but they clearly feel their concerns aren’t being heard.” In texts from several prominent NFL players today right now they’re putting the odds of the season at 50-60%.

    The NBA will paint the words "Black Lives Matter" on all of its court for when play resumes at a closed setting in Orlando, according to an ESPN report citing league sources. The WNBA also reportedly discussing the same plan. NBA players union president Chris Paul also told ESPN that the league and union are working together to allow players to wear uniforms with personalized messages addressing social justice in place of the players' last names. A number of NBA players have called for the league and players association to take an even stronger stand for social activism and racial justice in the wake of nationwide demonstrations sparked over outrage at the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.  Some NBA players have questioned whether play, which was halted in March as the coronavirus crisis gripped the country, should resume, worrying it would take attention away from the social justice movement.  Twenty-two teams are set to resume play beginning July 30 at Walt Disney World in Orlando. They will play an abbreviated schedule to determine the final lineups for a 16-team...
