Streaming video service DAZN is set to launch in Canada and will offer subscribers the ability to watch every NFL game this coming season without the need of a television subscription. DAZN — pronounced Da Zone — announced Thursday it has secured exclusive digital broadcasting rights to all National Football League games starting this season, with no blackouts even if games are offered on cable TV services. That differs from many of the streaming services already offered by major professional leagues in North America, where games are blacked out in areas where a broadcaster has also secured the TV rights.
The Washington Wizards and All-Star point guard John Wall have agreed to a four-year, $170 million extension, a league source told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The deal, first reported by TNT, begins in 2019, the source said. It includes a fourth-year player option and a 15 percent trade kicker. In a video tweeted Friday night by the UNINTERRUPTED, Wall confirmed he had agreed to the extension, saying: "You know I wasn't going anywhere."
O.J. Simpson might have made more than $600,000 during his eight-plus years in prison. After Simpson was granted parole on Thursday, that money is now his to spend and can't be touched by the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald L. Goldman, who won a civil judgment against Simpson in February 1997 that, including interest, is now worth more than $40 million. The reason the income is O.J.'s, unlike other money he might earn in the future, is because his NFL pension is protected by state law.
My wife and I are lifelong Denver Broncos fans. We both grew up in Colorado in the late ’80s and early ’90s and our love for the Broncos was built upon names like Atwater, Smith, Mecklenburg, Fletcher, and Elway. In 2004, we got married and put our names on the Denver Broncos season ticket waiting list. Seven years later we got our chance to buy season tickets and it felt like we had won the Super Bowl. Over the next four seasons, we used more than half of our tickets each year. Then our son Nolan arrived. He was born in August of 2015, and being first-time parents we excitedly focused on his growth and well-being. We attended two games that season while loudly rooting from home with Nolan for the other games.
