Dallas wins again, this time when it comes to having the most loyal fans by Will Brinson @WillBrinson moments ago • 2 min read The Cowboys might not be the Super Bowl favorite, but it's not likely that Jerry Jones cares a whole lot when he looks at his coffers, because his franchise is still holding down the top spot for club with the most loyal fans, according to a study from Emory University.In his Fanalytics study, Mike Lewis essentially seeks to determine what fanbases consistently reward their teams with loyalty by showing up and spending their hard-earned money. From Lewis' introduction: Each year, I do an analysis of NFL fandom. The analysis is grounded in economic and marketing theory, and uses statistical tools to shed light on the question of which teams have the most loyal or "best" fans.

There is no greater feeling in pro football than winning a Super Bowl, and nothing better in horse racing than winning a Triple Crown race. Chris Mara is one of the rare people in position to know what both feel like. A part-owner of the Giants who has been the team’s longtime senior vice president of player personnel, Mara is also a part-owner of Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Justify. With another win in Saturday’s Belmont Stakes, Mara will have experienced the greatest heights in both sports. “Excited, nervous, all of the above,” Mara said of how he’s feeling in the run-up to Saturday’s race, where Justify is the heavy favorite to win. Justify would become only the 13th horse to win the Triple Crown and would join Seattle Slew (1977) as only other undefeated horse to win the crown jewel of horse racing. “There’s a lot of luck involved, and these horses can be pretty fragile, so there’s a lot of disappointment in this … [Read more...] about Giants’ Chris Mara is a part-owner of Triple Crown hopeful Justify
In an interview with BigBoy TV, rap, fashion, and vodka mogul P. Diddy blasted the NFL, referring to it as a league which “oppresses black men.” The wide-ranging interview sees Diddy divulge his abortive efforts to purchase the Carolina Panthers to the wave of anthem protests that have swept across the league. The hip-hop star made it clear that he no longer sees the NFL as something he wants to be a part of.“I don’t want to be associated with oppressing black men,” Diddy said. “I don’t want to be associated with telling grown ass men what they can and can’t do.” Speaking of his efforts to implement change in the sports arena, Diddy lamented, “I hope they do what they have to do to fix it, and I hope they re-engage my dream to want to do that.” One change that the rap star had wanted to make was to end Colin Kaepernick’s forced retirement. After pursuing a plan to purchase the Panthers along with Golden … [Read more...] about P. Diddy Abandons ‘Dream’ to Own NFL Team: ‘Don’t Want to Be Associated with Oppressing Black Men’
