Bet you didn’t know Martellus Bennett used to be in an alternative rap group and that he is still dropping mixtapes on y’all today! Even has a dog; a poodle though, not a pit (alternative, remember). Awesome interview! Makes me want to drop in on a Whole Foods and ball out just ’cause cuz. Hahaa!

Feature Presentation: Man On Hoverboard Delivers The 2017 Portuguese Cup Final Game Ball To The Official (Video)

Dear real American football: You took an L for this round. Have you SEEN this technical extracurricular activity they had poppin’ at the football (okay futbol, happy?)?? A hoverboard pilot delivered the soccer game ball to the official like a f#cking superhero (well, supervillain, if you go the Green Goblin route)!

The match ball for the 2017 Portuguese Cup final was delivered to the referee by a man on a drone. The man rode the spider-like drone around 70m in driving rain before landing by the match official near the halfway line and handing the ball over. Benfica won the game 2-1, beating Vitória de Guimarães and completing their 11th league and cup double.

Even if you aren’t into this kind of ball, you gotta admit that this clip is baaaallinnnn’!

A7FL’s Hard-Hitting Point: Tackle Football Without Pads Could Cut The Number Of Concussions (Video)

So, American 7s Football League says take the helmet off to reduce rates of concussion and CTE in full-contact football?? Simple, elegant, old-school solution. Okay. But…Daaaayuummm! Dudes are getting LIT the F*CK up!

Saying though, didn’t we have them putting on more and more protection? As the years passed in this American pastime aka the ultimate collision sport we all love, we have paid more and more; and made the sport more and more expensive to play. Perhaps this is a way to dial all that back a notch.

Maybe we should just make ’em play flag or two hand touch?

Naaaah (haha). Hit the link for more on the safety perspective. Hit play above to see some HITTING! Hit the jump to see more highlights from A7FL.

Vick (Documentary Trailer)

The teaser is powerful. Those that followed Michael from college through the pros certainly know that there is a story to break down. And if what the trailer promises holds… well… in the voice/words of Robin Harris’ character in “Do The Right Thing”… LET IT BE BROKE!

Michael Vick has been through it all.

The dual-threat playmaker was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2001 NFL draft, set numerous quarterback rushing records, made four Pro Bowls and amassed a fortune playing football.

Then it all disappeared. A dog-fighting scandal sent him from the gridiron to prison.

– Bleacher Report

Hope the Bleacher Report documentary does the right thing. We’ll see in July.

Nate Robinson: Is A Pro Football Career A Slam Dunk For The Former NBA All-Star? (Video)

You’ve watched sports contests on the tube, and from time to time likely thought, “Look at the big man. He could bowl ’em over on the field as easily as he bangs down low to the bucket,” or… “Dude can move! Even at his size, he’s dunking over the crossbar AFTER leaving everybody 20 yards behind!”

Let’s call them crossover [football or basketball] ballers. Now, who among the retired greats of one sport do you think could come back and do the damn thang in the other? Quickly… times up! How about Nate Robinson? Is anybody thinking Nate Robinson can do it? Well, Nate is…and he could give a damn whether you agree or not.

Nate Robinson, the three time Slam Dunk champion and one of the most dynamic athletes in NBA history is considering a run at the NFL. Friends (Jamal Crawford, Glen Davis), former coaches (Rick Neuheisel), and NFLers (Marcedes Lewis, Brendon Ayanbadejo) think Nate has what it takes. Do you?

Could Nate be that next-level crossover baller? Looks like we are about to find out!

60 Minutes: Football And The Brain (Video)

Screenshot 2015-11-28 11.43.20

Well… with Frank Gifford’s post mortem diagnosis of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), we get yet another headline and reminder that football – like it or love it – is a dangerous COLLISION sport wrought with injuries…when playing and for the decades beyond. Try and try as American football’s flagship (the National Football League) might, no one has been able to reengineer injury out of the game. Look no further than comments from the NFL commish Roger Goodell in the 60 Minutes clip (embedded after the jump, or click the pic above) for a dose of football-injury reality.

Steve Kroft: You think the game is safer than it’s ever been before?
Roger Goodell: I do. I’m convinced of it. I think the changes that we’ve made have had real results. And we’re seeing that.
Steve Kroft: But do you believe it’s safe?
Roger Goodell: I do believe it’s safer. But injuries are part of active sports and they’re certainly part of football. Football is a contact sport.

Or you could boil it down to retired Ravens’ linebacker Ed Reed’s response…

Steve Kroft: Can you take the violence out of football?
Ed Reed: No.

Truly engaging treatment of the the topic in “Football And The Brain” on CBS News’ 60 Minutes.
