  • Vh1 Pulls the Plug on Chad and Evelyn Show

    (AP) — For Chad Johnson, a weekend confrontation with his wife has led to repercussions beyond a misdemeanor charge and NFL unemployment.

    VH1 pulled the series ”Ev and Ocho” from its schedule, citing ”the seriousness of the allegations” against Johnson. The network said Monday it had no plans to air the show.

    The Dolphins terminated Johnson’s contract Sunday night, about 24 hours after he was arrested in a domestic battery case involving his wife, Evelyn Lozada, who is on the reality TV show ”Basketball Wives.”

  • Jacksonville Jaguars Justin Blackmon Drunk Driving

    Jacksonville Jaguars first-round draft pick Justin Blackmon pleaded guilty Tuesday to drunken driving in Oklahoma last month and was given a sentence that includes no jail time for the former Oklahoma State star.

    ”He is mortified by this,” defense attorney Cheryl Ramsey said shortly after she withdrew Blackmon’s previous not guilty plea to a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence and entered the guilty plea as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors. Blackmon did not attend the brief hearing in Payne County District Court.

    ”He has apologized to the NFL commissioner. He apologized to the Jacksonville Jaguars. It will not happen again,” Ramsey said.

Ouch!!

    T.O.’s case was reset for July 19 and he could face jail time if he misses that one.

    NFL coaches put in such insane hours that it’s probably not much of a stretch to say that, for most guys, there are two things in their life: family and football. Things are not going well for Sean Payton on either front.

    The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that Payton, already suspended by the NFL for a year, has filed for divorce from his wife.

    Here’s a little piece we like to call, Rockin’ the runway. Sponsored by Audi of America, Peroni and Ciroc Vodka whose cocktail was featured on the runway by Justin Tryon of the NY Giants, the 5th Annual Fashion and Football Event took place on Tuesday April 24th at the very exclusive, Audi Forum showroom in New York City. Guests enjoyed an action packed fashion show featuring high-end well tailored suits by Italian designer, Eredi Pisano. What better than some of the top NFL players in the league modeling one of the top Italian fashion brands. It was an event to attend and was on just about on every photographers agenda including the infamous Richard Renda from Totally Cool who provided these amazing shots.

  • Tim Tebow to be Traded to NY Jets

    After a big false alarm, the New York Jets were finally able  to snag Tim Tebow Wednesday night, getting the quarterback who turned the Denver Broncos from an also-ran into a playoff team last season and became the NFL’s most talked-about player — for a fourth- and sixth-round draft pick. No, Mark Sanchez isn’t going anywhere but Tebow will be around to give Sanchez some relief during the game. What better than two of the most GQ players in the league on  team just a few miles away from one of the fashion capital’s of the world. How’s that for fashion and football!

    The Jets also agreed to pay $2.53 million of a salary advance due Tebow, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, after the question of who would pay that kind of advance.

    Jacksonville offered the Broncos $3 million toward Tebow’s salary advance and a fourth-round draft pick, league sources told Schefter. That pick, based on the draft “value chart” that teams use to determine how to use their picks, is more valuable than the picks the Jets offered, sources said.

    The Jets will pay the Broncos $1.5 million in 2012 and $1.03 million in 2013, a league source told ESPN sports business analyst Andrew Brandt. The payments will be made in 1/17th weekly installments. Now lets hope they bring home a championship ring.
