Cincinnati Bengal linebacker Vontaze Burfict will be suspended without pay for the first 3 games of the 2016 season.

The suspension comes on the heels of the AFC Wild Card game against the Pittsburgh Steelers where he delivered a hit on Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown knocking him out of the game and the next round of playoffs.

This isn’t the first time that Burfict has found himself on the wrong side of the NFL rulebook. Burfict was fined four times for violations in 2015.

Burfict has the right to appeal the decision.

Lovie Smith was fired by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after two seasons as head coach. The Bucs ended the season with a 6-10 record. The six wins recorded was more than the two acquired during the Smith’s first year in Tampa Bay. The firing came as

In a move that will certainly cause many citizens of Philadelphia to celebrate like it’s 1999, the Philadelphia Eagles have relieved Chip Kelly of his head coaching duties.

After nearly three seasons with the Eagles, Chip is now on the unemployment line. During his tenure with the Eagles, he posted a 26-21 record. His first two seasons with the team were his most successful posting 10 wins in each. This season has been far worse as the Eagles will post a losing record and miss the playoffs for the second year in a row. It had been reported that the final straw came when Kelly refused to relinquish his player personnel duties as demanded by owner Jeffrey Lurie, a claim that Lurie denied during his press conference to formally address the firing of Kelly.

Offensive Coordinator Pat Shurmur was named the interim coach for week 17 as ownership begins the search for a new head coach.

Where will Chip Kelly land? NFL? College?

Do you agree with What's The 411Sports host Glenn Gilliam that New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith would not have been able to get away the Manziel's antics?

A former Milwaukee Bucks dancer is suing the team for “prolific wage abuse”

Laura Herington claims that she was grossly underpaid while employed as a dancer by the Milwaukee Bucks.

The dancers are paid flat fees for games, practices and personal appearances with the total aggregate of hours spent sometimes averaging $3-4 per week. As of now, the Bucks organization has not commented about this case. At this point in time, Herington is the first NBA dancer to file such a suit. However, the NFL has faced complaints by some of its cheerleaders, with the Raiders reaching a settlement with their cheerleaders.

In 2014, the Raiderettes filed suit against the Oakland Raiders claiming that their wages were held until the end of the season, they were forced to pay for many of their business expenses and one cheerleader claimed that her wages were less than $5.o0 an hour.
