A Field Guide To American Truthers

There were no truthers back in the 20th century. I grew up in the Golden Age of Kennedy Assassination Conspiracies, but the word "truther" was never used to describe Oliver Stone or any of the other folks who decried the Magic Bullet theory. (DISCLOSURE: I saw JFK when I was in high school and took every scene as… » 10/02/14 1:45pm 20 minutes ago

Turkish Soccer Fans Chuck Flares At Arsenal Supporters

While it's probably true in most sports, saying that a home team "welcomes" away fans to their stadium is especially inaccurate in soccer.

Emails: Vice Requires Writers to Get Approval to Write About Brands

At most media organizations, there's a "Chinese wall" between editorial and advertising operations—each department operating independently of one another.

Report: Aaron Dobson Benched After He "Mouthed Off" To Josh McDaniels

The fact that second-year WR Aaron Dobson has suited up just once this season is extra-weird in light of the Patriots being woefully short on receivers. A Boston Globe report today may answer that question; it says Dobson has been benched the last two weeks because he's run afoul of offensive coordinator Josh… » 10/02/14 9:22am Today 9:22am

Skip the Sports Bar and Rule Your Home Football Kingdom

There's a time for everything in this world. There is a time for beer, a time for hot wings, and a time for watching sports in a bar, screaming at a screen alongside a bunch of strangers in matching jerseys.
