We spent Super Bowl Sunday with the head of the biggest sports book in Vegas—where lots of people lost money because there was no safety, Gostkowski’s extra-point miss was big, and the Patriots’ comeback turned everything upside-down

Richard Sherman Is Not Apologizing

The two sides of the Seahawks star—Compton versus Stanford—have been on full display during a turbulent 2016 season, and it’s no accident. A balance between passion and poise continues to drive Richard Sherman, and could be the key to another Seattle Super Bowl run

‘We Can’t Keep Talking About Derek, Bro’
