While rumors surrounding Tim Tebow and Jana Duggar continue to circulate, his publicist has made certain that there's no confusion — the two Christian celebrities are not dating.
Tebow, 27, a former football star and now an SEC college football analyst, was believed to have been dating the Duggar daughter, 24. Rumors began circulating that the two were being pushed together by her father, Jim Bob, and even Tebow's mother, Pam. The rumors only grew in intensity when a photo of Pam, Jim Bob and his wife, Michelle, was posted online by the Duggar patriarch.
Fans of both were hopeful that the young evangelical Christians would get together, forming perhaps one of the most famous super-couples. Yet Tebow's publicist released a statement quashing all of those dreams and revealing that the two had no connection. more >>

Several members of the NFL and other national sports organizations have shown their support for Eric Garner and others killed by police in very public ways.
Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush and Cleveland Browns cornerback Johnson Bademosi both warmed up for Sunday's game wearing shirts that stated, "I can't breathe." St. Louis Rams offensive lineman Davin Joseph wrote the message on his cleats. Rams receiver Kenny Britt wrote the names of Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, and more on his own cleats. All wanted to show their support for Staten Island resident Eric Garner, who died from a chokehold by a member of the NYPD.
The United States seemingly erupted after a video of the incident was posted online and a grand jury decided not to indict Daniel Pantaleo, the police officer responsible for putting Garner in the fatal, illegal chokehold. However, one week before that grand jury rendered its decision, five Rams players took to the field with their hands raised in the "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" position, showing support for Michael Brown, who was killed by Ferguson, Missouri officer Darren Wilson. more >>
Liverpool midfielder and club captain Steven Gerrard was left out of the starting line-up during their match against Stoke Saturday, which resulted in a 1-0 win for the team. That day was also the 16th anniversary of his debut as a professional football player. While being left out, former Liverpool winger John Barnes still thinks Gerrard is still good enough for the club.
"At this stage of his career, his best at this moment is still good enough," says Barnes over a radio interview. Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool manager, has said that Gerrard has been offered a new deal by the club. The contract sees the veteran player doing a reduced role which means less pay. However, Rodgers had said that money is not an issue with Gerrard. If things don't go well though, the player could be moving abroad and playing for the MLS.
"Steven's had 16 incredible years here and I believe he can continue to work at his level for the next couple of years. But there are other factors involved that are as much about life as they are about football. One thing I know absolutely is that it is not about money. Iti s not about finances. I'm sure in time Steven will talk through the things he had to consider but for me, there is no drama," said Rodgers. more >>
