An Arizona cheerleader hit the showers early after being ejected for shouting something at a referee midway through the second half of the Wildcats’ game in Tempe against rivals Arizona State.
The NBA continues to be cranky as hell. Last night Kevin Durant got ejected again, for the fourth time this season, late in the Warriors’ 123-112 win over the Knicks. Then in his post-match presser, he called out referee James Williams by name for targeting him.
Tonight’s Bucks-Wizards game is a tight one, but Milwaukee is finishing it out without guard Matthew Dellavedova after the Australian earned a flagrant 2 ejection for demolishing Bradley Beal. He is fortunate the official punishment is all that he suffered.
The NBA’s resident good boy LeBron James got really upset over a no-call and they just threw him right out of the game, right there. It didn’t really end up having a major impact, but it felt like a big deal at the time.
Alabama’s 25th-ranked team faced off against Minnesota in one of today’s marquee men’s basketball games, only to see its entire bench ejected after this brouhaha that, after another foul and an injury, left the team to play more than ten minutes with just three players. AND THEY CAME BACK.
Have you ever seen a quarterback ejected for targeting? Well, you’re about to.
Steve Kerr got heated early in tonight’s Golden State win over San Antonio, but Gregg Popovich was ultimately the one to get ejected. In a fourth-quarter outburst with the Spurs trailing, he said something along the lines of “You’re a fucking terrible referee,” after not getting the travel call he wanted on a basket…
Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant finished the game in the locker room as the Warriors took their second loss of the season in a 111-101 loss to the Grizzlies. Curry was ejected for throwing his mouthpiece; it’s unclear what earned Durant the heave-ho, though both ejections came in the final minute of an eight-point…
Adrian Beltre is unarguably among baseball’s purest sources of joy and delight. But umpire Gerry Davis was not too delighted by Beltre’s response tonight when he told the veteran to get in the on-deck circle while he was, uh, on deck. Beltre simply dragged the on-deck circle to where he was already standing—a few feet…
Jordan Reed was already injured and useless, but the Washington tight end made himself even useless-er by getting ejected at the end of the third quarter tonight against Carolina with that smartest of smart football plays: punching an opponent in the football helmet.
The Suns were in the closing stages of a road loss to the Nuggets when young Suns shooting guard Devin Booker made an official mad and got himself tossed. Booker then nonchalantly strolled off the court, but not before saying his goodbyes. He then indulged a pair of fans.

Blue Springs (Mo.) High School running back Jaylen Ivey gained a first down late in his team’s game last night against Lee’s Summit West to seal a win, but a tackle at the eight yard line kept from from reaching the end zone. So he kicked the defender, earning himself an ejection from the final seconds of his team’s…
Heckling is built into baseball. The game is slow and judgment-dependent, and for the fans close to the action at home plate, giving it to the players and umpires is a good enough way to pass the time and possibly influence the outcome of the game.
The Tigers were up 8-0 on the Twins after the first inning, and they’ve spent the next seven inning melting down and letting them tie it up. After Nick Castellanos struck out in the fourth inning, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus went straight at home plate umpire Doug Eddings and got tossed after very graphically voicing…
Red Sox coaches had to restrain David Ortiz after his outburst following a ninth-inning strikeout with the bases loaded in a game the Yankees went on to win, 3-2.
Here is a crazy sequence from tonight’s Bucks-Grizzlies game. With just six seconds left, John Henson swatted the shit out of a Matt Barnes shot, and the two picked up a double-technical for jawing at each other. Henson, who had picked up a technical for a flagrant foul on Lance Stephenson earlier and was therefore…
