VIDEO: Frank Gifford, an NFL Star, Reigned on Monday Night

Sadly, we acknowledge the passing of NFL Hall of Famer, Frank Gifford. He died yesterday from natural causes at the age of 84. He would have been 85 years-old on August 16, 2015.

VIDEO Discussion: NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Seems to be holding New England quarterback Tom Brady accountable for Deflategate

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has not budged off the 4-game suspension for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. The suspension is based on The Wells Report which said Brady probably knew something regarding the New England Patriots' deflation of game balls in the 2014 AFC Championship game vs the Indianapolis Colts. The fact that Brady took three months to reveal that he destroyed his personal cell phone back in March was probably hugely influential in Goodell's decision.

VIDEO DISCUSSION: Jen Welter Coaching NFL Players

Sports psychologist, Dr. Jen Welter, was hired to a six-week internship coaching the Arizona Cardinals’ linebackers during training camp and the preseason.

Dr. Werlter's previous football experience includes being a linebacker for the Dallas Diamonds and a running back for the Texas Revolution.

The signing with the Arizona Cardinals made Jen Welter the first female coach in the NFL.

Police investigation hindered NFL teams from making an offer to Collins

The Dallas Cowboys signed LSU’s Lael Collins who went undrafted because of he was cooperating with the Baton Rouge Police Department regarding the death of his pregnant girlfriend, Brittney Mills.

VIDEO: Glenn Gilliam Tired of Robert Kraft and Tom Brady Dragging Out DeflateGate

I am putting Robert Kraft, owner of the ne patriots and QB Tom Brady on the bench. They are making me sick trying to defend the defenseless and dragging this deflategate on beyond need. Kraft had the nerve to make it sound as if he had some guarantee from Commissioner Goodell to reduce or remove Tom Brady's 4-game suspension, while apologizing to the Patriot fans and Brady. And Brady continues to try and restore something that cannot be restored, the genie is out of the bottle and to insist that you're completely innocent but destroyed your phone knowing the league's interest in seeing it, has guilty written all over it and only New Englanders are buying the BS he's selling. It's offensive and only reminds fans of why this persists and that when it comes to the integrity of the game, New England plays by its own rules.

Tom Brady’s NFL Four-Game Suspension Scrapped

Judgement day has arrived for the NFL and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

After more than seven months of bickering about deflated footballs, a federal district court judge has rendered a decision. Judge Richard M. Berman ruled today that Tom Brady’s four-game suspension by the NFL will be vacated. In layman’s terms, Tom Brady, the reigning Super Bowl MVP, will be on the field for the season opener on September 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

With the judge’s decision, they are dancing in the streets in Foxboro and the NFL Commissioners Office is nursing another black eye. To be clear, Judge Berman’s decision was not about whether Brady deflated or ordered footballs to be deflated. It was about process and procedure. According to Judge Berman, the NFL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NFL and the NFL’s players union did not give NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell the authority to suspend Tom Brady.

The National Football Players Association (NFLPA) released a statement in reaction to Berman's ruling and the league's Collective Bargaining Agreement:

“The rights of Tom Brady and of all NFL players under the collective bargaining agreement were affirmed today by a Federal Judge in a court of the NFL’s choosing. We thank Judge Berman for his time, careful consideration of the issue and fair and just result.

This decision should prove, once and for all, that our Collective Bargaining Agreement does not grant this Commissioner the authority to be unfair, arbitrary and misleading. While the CBA grants the person who occupies the position of Commissioner the ability to judiciously and fairly exercise the designated power of that position, the union did not agree to attempts to unfairly, illegally exercise that power, contrary to what the NFL has repeatedly and wrongfully claimed.

We are happy for the victory of the rule of law for our players and our fans. This court’s decision to overturn the NFL Commissioner again should signal to every NFL owner that collective bargaining is better than legal losses. Collective bargaining is a much better process that will lead to far better results.”

Given that this case was not about Tom Brady’s guilt or innocence, Judge Berman had three options in this case: uphold the NFL’s suspension of Tom Brady; send it to an arbitrator or vacate the NFL’s ruling.

Judge Berman chose to vacate the NFL’s ruling. You can read Judge Berman’s ruling here.

So, to those who are rejoicing, celebrate now because the legal battle may not be over.

The NFL can appeal Judge Berman's ruling in this case to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. If so, the NFL could seek a stay of Judge Berman’s decision.

"WITH CONSIDERATION OF ALL THE FACTS AND CIRCUMSTANCES OF THIS MATTER, WE ARE SUSPENDING BRITTNEY GRINER AND GLORY JOHNSON EACH WITHOUT PAY FOR A PERIOD OF SEVEN REGULAR-SEASON GAMES. BRITTNEY AND GLORY'S CONDUCT IS DETRIMENTAL TO THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE WNBA AND VIOLATES APPLICABLE LAW."

In the Dog House

Greg Alcala stated: I picked the Cleveland Cavaliers to beat the Chicago Bulls in round 2 of the NBA playoffs, but I am putting the Chicago Bulls in the Dog House for not showing up in Game 6.

====================================================================================================================

Glenn Gilliam stated that he is putting the NFL in the Dog House. According To NJ.com, The National Guard has made deals with 14 NFL teams to honor the veterans of this country from 2011 To 2014.

According to federal contracts from the Department of Defense, the National Guard spent over $5 million to teams during that time span.

U.S. Senator Jeff Flake ripped the entire practice carried out by the National Guard.

“THOSE OF US GO TO SPORTING EVENTS AND SEE THEM HONORING THE HEROES,” SAID FLAKE. “YOU GET A GOOD FEELING IN YOUR HEART. THEN TO FIND OUT THEY’RE DOING IT BECAUSE THEY’RE COMPENSATED FOR IT, IT LEAVES YOU UNDERWHELMED. IT SEEMS A LITTLE UNSEEMLY…IT JUST LEAVES A BAD TASTE IN YOUR MOUTH.”
