Barstool Sports fans. Photo: Sam Greenwood/Getty Images I never saw Barstool Sports coming. I probably should have. I am the guy who founded Deadspin, after all, and during the years I actively ran the site — now more than a decade in the past — I was ostensibly in charge of figuring out what was coming next on the sports internet; I was the supposed leader of the blog-barbarians at the gate, all those bulls (and we were all bulls) running roughshod over the Traditional Sports Media.

By Dr. Marciene Mattleman PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Not surprisingly, we’ve learned that school sports aren’t always fun. Fortunately, the Youth Sports Safety Alliance has proposed some major safety changes. At a recent Youth Safety Summit in Washington, D.C., nine recommendations for action were developed.

Specific actions for four major injury areas include: cardiac events, neurologic injuries, environment-or exertion-related situations and dietary or substance induced conditions. With regard to cardiac events, coaches and athletic officials should be trained in CPR and use of automatic external defibrillators; each student should have a comprehensive pre-participation examination including questions on cardiac history; venue specific emergency action plans;, and base-line concussion testing … [Read more...] about Youth Sports Safety Action Plan Proposed To Lawmakers

(CNN)While players might take some time off after retiring from professional sports, Derek Jeter did the opposite. The former baseball player was part of the consortium that purchased the Miami Marlins in 2017. He even contemplated buying the NFL team, the Buffalo Bills, in 2014. However, on October 1, 2015, Jeter set out on his most ambitious project -- to create a new genre of athlete-led sports journalism. As a result, he founded The Players' Tribune. A message from our founder: https://t.co/sWOAAVJFq1— The Players' Tribune (@PlayersTribune) November 21, 2019 Its goal was to create "first-person stories from athletes, providing unique insight into the daily sports conversation."
