Lots of buzz tonight that King James will be returning home to the Cavs. It makes since with the top draft pick and plenty of good young talent to help him bring a title to Cleveland and also to secure his title as the best to ever play the game
The Winter Olympics is one of my favorite sporting events, mainly because you only get to see many of them during the games. This year the Olympics take place in Sochi, Russia and features fifteen sporting events spread out over two weeks.
Arian Foster may be a great NFL running back, but he apparently is terrible at money management. Foster admits, while a student on scholarship at Tennessee, to taking money for food and having coaches bring him tacos, both are NCAA violations. What Foster seemed to have plenty of money for however, was ink. Not the kind of ink for taking notes in class, but the kind they use in tattoo needles.
So Arian was hungry while in college, which I highly doubt. How many students would love to buy some dinner for one of the best players on the team? Arian's beef is not with getting money for food, he has long been an advocate(saying so in an 2012 interview on the Dan Patrick Show) for college players to be paid. He seemed openly disgusted that coaches make millions while students get nothing. But do they get nothing? No they get a free college education and for a select few like Arian, they get training that could earn them millions playing professionally. If college football players are to receive a stipend, shouldn't athletes in non-revenue producing sports like baseball and women's basketball, also receive an allowance for giving their all for their university
