    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The college sports world changed this summer to allow athletes to make money from endorsements, sponsorships and other business opportunities. Athletes can now profit off of their name, image and likeness (NIL). READ MORE: Woman Reunited With Puppy Stolen From Car In Highland VillageAt the University of Minnesota, 80 Golden Gophers in 18 sports have disclosed about 150 NIL deals to the school. Parker Fox, a men’s basketball player, has taken advantage of several opportunities, including signing up for Cameo, a company that allows customers to buy personalized videos from celebrities. He charges $10 per video. Fox has also modeled for a clothing brand, promoted a book, and local and national companies pay him for sponsored social media posts. “You’re making, whatever it is, a couple hundred dollars a post, here and there, but then there are some bigger sort of deals where they want to sign you into a contract, get you for a longer period of time,” Fox said. Mike Wierzbicki, a senior associate athletic director for the University of Minnesota, says Gophers have profited off...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Joe Maddon has long been a believer in the importance of rest and recharging. Each year, he provides his players with an extended mental and physical break by putting them through “American Legion Week” — that is, show up, lace up the cleats and take the field. The players can appreciate some lighter, stress-free afternoons compared to the typical daily grind of early hitting in the cage, fielding drills and rounds of batting practice. And as the playoffs near, the teams that are fresh and injury-free might be the ones with enough stamina to reach the World Series. “I know in the 80s, I’m going to go back a little bit, that’s when coaching became greater than. It was many more concepts put out there and all of a sudden we went from just showing up and taking batting practice, a couple ground balls, maybe a round of infield and going and playing your game to the point where you had to come out at 3 o’clock for extra work,” Maddon recalled. “And there are times...

    Bling Ring’s Alexis Neiers Is Dating RHOC’s Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s Ex Kris 50 Ways You’re Throwing Money Away It was reported in the early days of the summer months that at least one unnamed NBA executive viewed Philadelphia 76ers All-Star guard Ben Simmons as "so broken" coming off dreadful offensive performances during the playoffs that included the 25-year-old shooting 34.2% from the free-throw line during postseason play.  © Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports According to ESPN NBA insider Brian Windhorst, that is the 76ers' problem to solve in the eyes of Simmons.  Per Adam Hermann of NBC Sports Philadelphia, Windhorst explained Wednesday why Simmons reportedly declaring his intentions to avoid the start of training camp to force a trade isn't a sign he's willing to do whatever possible to obtain a fresh start elsewhere.  "One of the messages that Ben has sent back towards Philly is that it's not his job to fix his trade value," Windhorst said. "It's not his job to correct his trade value or raise his trade value. That is not something that is on the menu...

    Box Office: Disney’s ‘Luca’ to Release in China on August 20 Nio released earnings Wednesday. Here’s how to value its stock compared to Tesla, Ford and other rivals Despite a rocky few weeks of speculation that the New Orleans Saints and star wideout Michael Thomas could be headed for a trade, sources have told Yahoo Sports that the wideout and Saints head coach Sean Payton have had positive talks and are not seeking a split. Two sources familiar with the talks said Payton and Thomas had a recent meeting to clear the air over two lingering issues: comments Payton made regarding his frustration over the offseason timing of Thomas’s ankle surgery; and a subsequent social media post from Thomas that suggested the wideout was now at odds with the team. “They had a good talk about [the issues],” one source said. “I think they both believe it’s not anything that has to go any further than what is already out there. There was some frustration from both viewpoints and that was the point of the meeting.” A second source...

    Getty The Boston Celtics are advised to steer clear. From the front office to their roster, and everything in between, the Boston Celtics will certainly look different next season. With that said, the chances that their overhaul is complete are slim to none. The team’s co-owner, Wyc Grousbeck, hinted at this much during a recent interview with 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Felger & Mazz, predicting a “busy July” for his Celtics while also noting that “there’s a lot of potential trades” to be had. The most logical trade chip from Boston’s perspective is undoubtedly Marcus Smart. Entering the final year of his contract, the 27-year-old is a quality player and a defensive ace who should surely entice championship-contending teams on the open market. However, if president Brad Stevens truly wants to shake things up during his first offseason on the job, dangling All-Star Jaylen Brown on the trade market would surely reap the most prolific return. While you’d be hard-pressed to come by a Brown trade proposal that we’d personally sign off on, Celtics legend Cedric Maxwell is far...

    Lamborghini has almost sold out of luxury sports cars for the year as customers stuck at home for months due to the coronavirus pandemic splash out. The Italian supercar brand has sold about 10 months of its production capacity, Chief Executive Officer Stephan Winkelmann told Bloomberg in an interview during the Milano Monza Motor Show. 'Despite a two-month shutdown due to the pandemic, Lamborghini ended 2020 as its second-best year ever,' Winkelmann said. He added that Lamborghini deliveries have shot up by nearly 25 per cent in the first quarter.  Among the stars recently spotted with Lamborghinis are former Emmerdale actor Kevin Fletcher and Geordie Shore's Chloe Ferry. Fletcher was seen getting into his £180,000 Lamborghini Huracan convertible outside a Cheshire supermarket in February. A car enthusiast, Fletcher owns his own motor racing team. Since April, Ferry has regularly posed in front of her fire-engine red £160,000 Lamborghini in pictures uploaded to social media.  At the motor show, crowds gathered to see new models from more than 60 car makers including Ferrari, Porsche and McLaren. Lamborghini featured the Huracan STO near Milan's iconic...

    For years, people have talked about selling their sports cards and retiring. With stimulus money in people’s pockets, now could actually be the time. A Michael Jordan rookie basketball card which had a value of $3,000 dollars back in late 2020 is now selling in the $20,000 – $25,000 range! This is true across the board with older baseball and football cards (prior to 1980). Conditioning, however, is the key. With the advent of grading companies (businesses that will grade and encapsulate your cards for a fee), high value items gain even more value since grading guarantees what the buyer is getting in an online market. Graded cards are given serial numbers that can be verified through an online database. And while websites such as Ebay are still common markets for online auctions, many collectors also buy and sell through like-minded social media groups to avoid the middle man/fees.  Groups are very easy to find with Facebook and Reddit seeming to be the most popular sites.It could be worth...
    FIVE of the Premier League's Big Six have been named in Forbes' top 50 most valuable sports teams on the planet just weeks after their failed European Super League money-grabbing plot.

    Below is an op-ed from WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert: A familiar narrative has re-emerged over the past few weeks around disparities in women’s sports, but as a former CEO who spent three-plus decades in corporate America and now leading the WNBA, I can confidently say this certainly is not about a weight room.  This is about what the weight room situation represents — the deeply rooted issues in society and business around the lack of equity for and devaluation of women.  I was blessed to work at a firm that early on in my career in the 1990s, recognized the value of women in the workforce, not because it was trendy to do so, but because it was about leadership in the war for talent and it was a business imperative. Now, in my second career act as Commissioner of the WNBA, I clearly see the disparities in sports – but why?  Is it a question of whether diversity, equity and inclusion really is a business imperative?  We continue to see study after study that validates that having gender-diverse leadership...
    Over the last  seven decades, Joel Platt has acquired one of the world’s great sports memorabilia collections. The 82-year-old’s high-security vaults in Florida contain more than a million items — ranging from Jackie Robinson’s bat to Wilt Chamberlain’s high school uniform to the recently deceased Hank Aaron’s game-used hat. Claiming to have traveled a million miles to land his mementos, the real-estate developer said that his tireless mission grew out of tragedy from his childhood in Pittsburgh. “In 1943, I put a lit match into a car’s gas tank,” Platt, who was four years old at the time, told The Post. The resulting explosion left him injured and bedridden for over a year. “My parents bought me baseball cards and my favorite was Babe Ruth. I had a dream in which the Babe visited me and said, ‘Kid, don’t give up. You can get better and someday be a major league baseball player or build an international hall of fame for sports immortal heroes and greats.’” In 1995, he opened the Sports Immortals Museum in Boca Raton (temporarily closed due to COVID-19).

    When the 2020 NASCAR Cup season concludes, the sport will finally bid adieu to Jimmie Johnson and Clint Bowyer. While Johnson will head to the IndyCar arena, Bowyer will head to the FOX Sports commentary booth. With Bowyer’s departure inching closer, teammate Kevin Harvick took the opportunity to reveal what he will miss about the 41-year-old.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians and NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith traded barbs Friday over the value of protesting. Arians made known Thursday he thought taking action was more important than protesting as teams canceled practice in the wake of the police shooting of Jacob Blake. BUCCANEERS HEAD COACH BRUCE ARIANS: 'I DON'T KNOW IF PROTEST IS AN ACTION' “I think your responsibility is to take action. I don't know if protest is an action,” Arians told reporters, according to the NFL Network. “I think each guy has a personal thing. I would beg [them] to take action. Find a cause and either support it financially or do something to change the situation. Because protesting doesn't do crap in my opinion. I've been seeing it since 1968.” Smith responded to Arians’ comments on Twitter, writing: “Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but it’s clear he is woefully misinformed about the history of protest both within sports and in America.” TITANS' RYAN TANNEHILL: US 'WAS FOUNDED UPON RACIST IDEAS' The tweet came along with a photo of the late Congressman John...
    (CBS Local/CBSLA)- The college football season, if there is one, will look wildly different this year. With the Big Ten and Pac-12 deciding not to play in the fall, 53 of the 130 schools in Division I have decided not to play football this fall due to concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic and its long-term effects for players. But, the changes in the sport are likely to be wider ranging and more far reaching than just not having football this fall. That change is due to the growing push from players within the Power 5 and the American Athletic Conference in the #WeAreUnited and #WeWantToPlay movements. While the two movements started from different places, we saw them come together over the weekend with a list of demands, the last of which made sports law professors and sports media members’ ears perk up. #WeWantToPlay pic.twitter.com/jvQhE7noGB — Trevor Lawrence (@Trevorlawrencee) August 10, 2020 “Ultimately create a College Football Players Association representative of all Power 5 conferences.” That line would point towards a unionization attempt from players.

    New York Giants Still One Of The World’s Most Valuable Teams By: Cay North August 1, 2020 PrevPreviousNew York Giants: Pass rusher Markus Golden reports to camp ShareTweet0 SharesThe New York Giants haven’t been winning recently, but that hasn’t taken away from the value of the team very much. Forbes recently came out with their list of the most valuable sports teams, updated for 2020, and New York sports fans will likely be happy with the placement of some of their teams near the top. The Giants came in at number ten, where they’re tied with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Their rivals the Dallas Cowboys came in at the top spot but the Giants are actually the third most valuable team in the NFL. Only the Cowboys and Patriots came in higher than them, though the Giants are also beat out by a couple of other New York sports teams. Who are the most valuable teams? Both the Yankees and Knicks are ranked higher than the Giants, with the Yankees coming...
    Springtime is in the past, Opening Day is right in the middle of the “dog days of summer,” and there isn’t enough time to debate hot and cold starts or sample sizes of data when constructing your fantasy baseball roster. You need to be careful not to look too far into the future, whether you are drafting right now or getting ready for your first waiver period. In a normal season, those late-round draft picks or early free-agent claims can be spent on high-upside hopefuls, but this year is all about accruing as many at-bats and innings as possible and those can be found late in players often overlooked. With the NL adopting the DH, there are few better role-players to draft than Washington’s Howie Kendrick. He was slotted to be the team’s primary DH this season, then teammate Ryan Zimmerman opted out of the season due to health concerns, so Kendrick also becomes part of the first-base platoon with lefty-swinging Eric Thames. Normally a part-timer, Kendrick now brings his .294/.337/.431 slash line into a starting role with...
    LAS VEGAS — With the way everyone is predicting an easy victory for Tiz the Law in Saturday’s 152nd running of the Belmont Stakes (aka The Run for the Carnations), you’d think it was The Walkover for the Coronation. And I get it. Tiz the Law is the only Grade 1 winner in the 10-horse field (and has two of them) and appears to stand head and withers over his competition, especially as other top contenders such as Charlatan, Nadal and Maxfield have fallen by the wayside in the lead-up to a Triple Crown season that has been turned upside down by the COVID-19 pandemic with the Belmont now leading off the series at a mile and an eighth (shortened from the traditional mile and a half) and the Kentucky Derby postponed four months until Sept. 3. Tiz the Law is 4-for-5 lifetime with his only clunker being on a sloppy track last fall at Churchill Downs. He won the Grade 1 Champagne at this track last fall and then romped in the Grade 3 Holy Bull and Grade...
