Jurgen Klopp describes Premier League managerial legend as 'football maniac'
- January 13, 2016

But speaking ahead of Wednesday's visit of Arsenal, Klopp said he wasn't prepared to talk about deals until they're done, before adding: "My private advice to you is don't follow the Pato path any longer". "They will defend better, that's for sure, and we expect it to be a tough game for both teams definitely". "So we have probably Kolo and Mama, and the next one is Lucas [Leiva], so three senior centre-backs". (more...)

Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry booted out of game against Sacramento Kings Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry booted out of game against Sacramento Kings
- December 22, 2015

Rajon Rondo and former Raptor Rudy Gay led the Kings (11-16) with 19 points apiece. He scored a game-high 30 points in 34 minutes in Sunday's victory over Delaware.

The Kings come in 0-6 on the season when playing the second game of a back-to-back, but a win would guarantee at least a split on their four game trip out east. (more...)

But if the debate centers around which man is the better bet between now and the final whistle of Super Bowl 50, the 38-year-old quarterback of the or the 26-year-old quarterback of the, Brady wins that vote in a landslide. However, Gronkowski caught all four of those balls and wreaked havoc on a pair of them, including a 45-yard gain in the first quarter.
