Fast forward one season and Cousins ended the year as the starting quarterback for the foreseeable future after leading the team to a divisional championship and its first playoff appearance since 2012.

- February 29, 2016

Rousey revealed that she suffered from suicidal thoughts following her defeat to Holly Holm at the UFC 193.

- February 15, 2016

And the odds of the NFL approving a team in Vegas, given the league's hypocrisy toward gambling (daily fantasy good, point spreads bad!), still seems remote. While revenues from the luxury boxes would make Vegas an attractive market for the Raiders' owners, that money wouldn't be included in the league's extensive revenue sharing. (more...)

If Leicester are top of the league, that means there's no easy match and it's a very interesting Premier League so far.
