Watson/Getty Images) The new Las Vegas Raiders facility in Las Vegas looks absolutely incredible and would make The Emperor proud.  Lost in all the worry of there maybe not being a 2020 NFL season right now is that the Raiders are on the verge of making their debut in Las Vegas. While we’ve seen plenty of photos of the outside of Allegiant Stadium, we haven’t seen a ton of shots from the team’s headquarters and team facility. Well, that changed this week, as some photos just surfaced on social media. Hey Raiders fans, trust us when we say you’re going to want to take a look at the pics. Plain and...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — J.T. Realmuto isn’t worried about his contract situation. The All-Star catcher and the Philadelphia Phillies had preliminary discussions about a long-term deal before the coronavirus pandemic but talks between the two sides haven’t progressed since baseball returned last week. Realmuto is eligible for free agency after the season unless the Phillies sign him before he can test the market. He’s expected to seek at least $20 million per season. Last week, Phillies general manager Matt Klentak said the pandemic has changed the landscape of baseball. Lost revenue could affect salaries around the league going forward. “It definitely concerns me, not necessarily for myself, but for the free agency class as a whole,” Realmuto said Thursday. “The...

Kelly Loeffler’s (R-GA) share of the Atlanta Dream amid league-wide protest against the senator’s involvement in the WNBA. Loeffler, who is co-owner of the Dream, said Tuesday that she is not in favor of the WNBA allowing players to wear Black Lives Matter warm-up jerseys after the league announced the 2020 season would be dedicated to social justice. “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 a letter to WNBA commissioner Cathy Engelbert. “This is not a political movement that the league should be...

    Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard, a Heisman Trophy award candidate, threatened to sit out of all team activities after seeing a picture of head coach Mike Gundy wearing a shirt promoting One America News Network, a right-wing station. "I will not stand for this.. This is completely insensitive to everything going on in society, and it’s unacceptable,” Hubbard wrote on Twitter. “I will not be doing anything with Oklahoma State until things CHANGE.” Hubbard is the reigning Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year, and he could have been a top draft pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, but he decided to return to Oklahoma State for another season. Last year, he ran for 2,094 rushing yards and 21...
