Fantasy Football - Running Back Rankings

Your Virtual Draft Guide continues with our breakdown of the Running Backs for the 2012 Fantasy Football Season. Who are the top tier backs? Who are some sleepers and players to avoid? Let's find out! Don't forget about those Customizable Cheat Sheets as well!

Gymnastics Controversy

The scoring system, the judges, the deductions, the gymnast. That's what normally determines (in order) the score of a gymnastics routine. That's what determines who is the best gymnast in the world.

Jordyn Weiber reacts after being knocked out of the gymnastics
all-around finals by teammate and friend Allie Raisman.
This year in London, however, something else is determining who will win the gold medal: a technicality.

Last night in the women's all-around qualifications, Americans Allie Raisman, Gaby Douglas, and Jordyn Wieber finished 2-3-4 in the standings. 24 women qualify for the all-around finals later this week. However, Jordyn Wieber is not one of them due to a rule with allows for "spreading the wealth" of Olympic glory.

This is sickening.

Oscar Pistorius - Unfair Advantage?

"Every Olympics has at least one story that leaves a giant, enduring footprint. Just guessing, but this summer it will be about the sprinter with no feet." ~ Bill Plaschke, LA Times

I think that best sums up what is happening right now with the 2012 Olympic Games.

The story that Bill Plaschke is referencing is that of South African sprinter Oscar Pistorius. The 25-year-old known as the 'Blade Runner' will be competing in the London Olympic Games in the 400m and 4x400m relay.

The reason Pistorius will be the story? He's a double amputee. Pistorius will become the first amputee track athlete to compete in the Olympics.

The story, of course, comes with controversy. He runs using prosthetic legs called Cheetahs. These carbon fiber artificial limbs leads to the discussion: Does Pistorius have an unfair advantage over his competition?

My answer: Are you serious?

He Said / He Said - Post-Freeh Report, What's Next?

Penn State is at the top of the sports news again following Thursday's release of the Freeh Report. The internal investigation led by former FBI agent Louis Freeh uncovered more documents and email communication between the powers of the University regarding Jerry Sandusky. 
In the 48 hours now since the release of that report, the public outcries have come swarming in. "Tear down the Paterno statue outside Beaver Stadium." "Take his name off of the library." "Penn State deserves the death penalty." 

@3SNDeLlav                                       @3SNdot     
These outcries come from everywhere. They come from random twitter accounts in Idaho, former coaches like Bobby Bowden, and hot-headed reporters like Stephen A. Smith who creates controversy with extreme comments just so his voice is heard.

What is the appropriate course of action by the University and the NCAA? Two PSU alumni discuss what they think should happen next, and provide general reaction to the Freeh Report.

Pittsburgh Pirates - Looking Forward

3SN viewer becomes 3SN analyst for a day. That's the way we like it! Hometown fan Tony Borrelli breaks down what Pirates fans have to look forward to for the rest of the season. Enjoy!

Alright Pirates fans, here's what we can look forward to in the next couple months now that the home run derby is over and the all star game will prove to be lackluster once again. Since Cutch didn't win the home run derby, pack it in Bucco fans think things will be rough. No, not really. There are a couple factors that I think about when watching this year's Buccos that makes me think there is a light at the end of the 19 year long tunnel.

Fantasy Racing - Honda Indy Toronto, Formula1 Grand Prix of Great Britain

It's time to give our fantasy racing predictions for the weekend of July 6-8. Again, the IndyCar predictions follow the rules of IndyCar Nation's fantasy game, while the Formula1 predictions follow the Pirelli GP Challenge format.

Poor Images in Sports Apparel

After the Adidas shackle-shoes debacle a couple of weeks ago, the world was reminded just how brainless some people can be. The shoes, designed supposedly to strap to your ankles so they will remain attached to you despite your crazy moves on the court, looked more like "slave shoes" due to the straps that looked more like shackles, naturally and well-deservedly causing outrage among the sporting community.

Thankfully, the shoes were repealed without any second thought, BEFORE they were distributed to the public.

But, just when we thought apparel controversy ended, Wimbledon began, and more bad memories (or good, depending on your point of view) were brought forward.

So, without further adieu, 3SN presents some of the more controversial apparel (both by the players and by the fans) to appear in the world of sports. Some were on purpose, some unintentional, and some that just leave you scratching your head.

Jeneba Tarmoh vs. Allyson Felix - NEVERMIND

This afternoon, Jeneba Tarmoh withdrew from contention for one of the three positions on the US women's 100m team. Tonight at 8:00 Eastern, Tarmoh was supposed to compete in a winner-take-all runoff against Allyson Felix. The two women had tied for third place in the finals of the US Olympic Trials last weekend, each running the 100 meters in 11.068 seconds.

Many are disappointed in Tarmoh for not going for the win and for the Olympic berth. Others are disappointed with Felix, who already qualified for the 200m dash and is a gold medal favorite in London, not withdrawing since she is a lock to race in London and Tarmoh is not. I'm disappointed at the process, especially in one of the few Olympic events out there where there is no questioning who is the winner.
