Adrian Peterson may have upset some when he seemingly compared his legal issues to those of Darren Wilson, the police officer who was not indicted last night for shooting 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri last Aug.
After it was announced that a grand jury would not indict Wilson in the fatal shooting, a number of people went into an uproar. While many people protested in Ferguson and around the country, others like the 29-year-old suspended Vikings running back took to Twitter to express their thoughts.
The Vikings running back made headlines last September when news broke claiming that he abused his four-year-old son whom the football star struck with a stripped tree branch, resulting in severe lacerations. Although his no-contest plea left him avoiding jail time, it also resulted in his inability to play in the NFL for the season. more >>
Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao has managed to defeat Chris Algieri during their bout Saturday, with a unanimous 12-round decision win. The decisive victory over the young 30-year old American has caused fans to turn their attention to Floyd Mayweather, with questions on whether the fight will finally happen or not.
It seems that the fight will not only happen just once, but possibly, twice. The Mayweather camp has released demands on the super bout with a date set in May 2015. The clause however, dictates that if Mayweather loses the match, a rematch will be set on September the same year.
The clause was revealed by Pacquiao's trainer himself, Freddie Roach, who reviewed the prospects of the match before flying back from China. more >>

While Tim Tebow, 27, has been selected by People magazine as one of 2014's Sexiest Men Alive, he admits that being deemed attractive is not his focus.
"Of course I want to look nice and have a good appearance, but more than the outer shell, I want people to want to be around me for my heart," he told People. "To me, it's especially important to have a heart for kids who are hurting. Being able to make a difference is something that people should love, and that's something that's sexy about people."
The evangelical Christian football star turned SEC college football analyst, has made work with his Tim Tebow foundation a priority. The foundation builds playrooms in children's hospitals all over the world, grants sick children's wishes and works to aid in the process of adoption. more >>
Adrian Peterson has given an in-depth interview for the first time since being indicted last Sept. for severely beating his four-year-old son in as an act of discipline.
The 29-year-old Minnesota Vikings running back made headlines last September when news broke claiming that he abused his four-year-old son whom the football star struck with a stripped tree branch, resulting in severe lacerations. Although his no-contest plea left him with the ability to continue with the 2014-2015 NFL season, the league officially decided he would remain suspended without pay.
Now, Peterson has spoken to USA Today about the incident, saying that he believed he would play in the NFL again. Still, he insists he learned from the situation and would never use a switch as a form of discipline again. more >>
Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has been sidelined once more for six weeks after breaking down during training Monday. It has been the second time this season that he has injured a muscle but the team's medical staff are digging the player's medical records to figure out why he has gone down with the injury twice in the same season.
The team's manager Brendan Rodgers believes that Monday's misshap is Sturridge's ninth injury involving his left thigh over the past few years. The England training regime was initially blamed for the player's predicament but it is looking to be a much deeper problem.
"We reckon it's his ninth injury on the same thing from previous clubs here and there. So there seems to be an underlying issue somewhere. Our medical team are looking into it, the latest scans show a slight tear just below where he had a previous injury," Rodgers says. more >>
