Former Dallas Cowboys football player Michael Irvin recently expressed frustration over his schedule as a current analyst for the NFL Network's "NFL Gameday Morning" since it takes up his time to attend church.
Irvin, who attends The Potter's House in Dallas, told TMZ that he was conflicted about his career when asked if he thought football players would go to church more if games were not held on Sundays.
"I just texted my bishop T.D. Jakes the other day … I said, 'Man, it's getting to the point where I'm missing church more than I'm looking forward to games on Sunday.' That's been hard for me to go to work … I miss that man," said Irvin. more >>

Russell Wilson, the Seattle Seahawks Christian quarterback, recognized that NFL players are not perfect and is praying for those who have been the topic of negative media headlines recently.
NFL players have been in hot water since a domestic dispute went public after a video surfaced of former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking his now- wife unconscious. A short time later, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson faced two reports of child abuse that came to the surface in recent weeks.
The news became public when TMZ showed severe injuries that Peterson inflicted on his 4-year-old son after hitting him with a switch as a form of discipline. After countless fans watched Wilson pull out a win against the Denver Broncos in a repeat of last year's Super Bowl performance, the quarterback was questioned about his thoughts concerning the violent acts of fellow players.

Basketball fans have been asking, will the Miami Heat still have a chance in the upcoming finals of the 2014-2015 NBA season?
These speculations were expected to rise up after Miami's former star player LeBron James decided to return to his home team Cleveland Cavaliers during his free agency period. But basketball critics and experts thought so otherwise as they see the new Heat line-up would have more motivation to prove among themselves and the ball fans that they are still a team to reckon with, even without LBJ.
An interview with 28-year-old Mario Chalmers revealed LeBron's exit could mean an opportunity for him and other teammates to "shine." more >>
The NFL and its contrite Commissioner, Roger Goodell, are in full damage control mode for the way they handled the Ray Rice domestic abuse case.
Roger Goodell will survive this scandal. He admitted errors and will hire PR firms, probably one where a U.S. Senator's kids (like him) work, and spend some of the NFL's tax-free money for public service announcements on domestic violence. I presume the league will come out against it.
He has also formed "a committee." We all know how well those work. Perhaps Oscar Pistorius and Ray Lewis will be appointed as co-chairs. Committees buy time, and time is all you need in this ADD news cycle to get past this scandal. more >>
