Georges-Kevin N'Koudou's Chelsea shirt gaffe shows players lack nous

ESPNFC's Tottenham correspondent Dan Kilpatrick believes Spurs may struggle to compete financially in the transfer market. When a footballer is photographed wearing another club's shirt, it usually means only one thing -- he is sending a message that he is looking for a move and wouldn't mind being on their shopping list. But when Georges-Kevin N'Koudou was snapped wearing a Chelsea shirt on holiday last week, no one jumped to that conclusion. The Spurs winger has struggled ...

The NHL’s Hidden Musical Talent

There’s a reason why most pro hockey players don’t often partake in extracurricular activities outside of the rink. These guys are some of the most gifted athletes in the world, who are so dedicated to their craft that anything that doesn’t involve a stick and a puck is just unnecessary noise. They’re also making millions of dollars to compete in the NHL, so sticking to hockey makes a lot of sense. Some players, however, need something outside of hockey to ease their minds from the daily grind t...

Yamamoto a Big Win for the Oilers

For an organization that seems to have become almost obsessively focused on acquiring players with size, it was rather refreshing to hear Peter Chiarelli call the name of Kailer Yamamoto as the Edmonton Oilers first round pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.  Despite being the smallest player ever selected in the first round, the Spokane Chiefs standout is oozing with talent and carries himself in such a manner it is next to impossible to take your eyes off him. "They asked if I wanted to be an Oi...
