I was at a gym when Janae was Killer Kroc and doing a powerlifting seminar. When she (he previously) was competing, Kroc was one of the top competitors. For her to compete now, even after therapy, she is going to have massive advantage. All that muscle mass isn’t going away and neither are the advantages built to her Read more

I don’t love the writer using a NY Times opinion article as fact when the same paper ran an article a while back saying testosterone did affect performance. Seems like shoddy work and it only took 5 seconds of google. Read more

“There is no stark line separating what men can do athletically and what women can. Some women, in fact, are bigger, faster, and stronger than some men.” Read more

Terrible, mostly ignorant, but at least earnest question: I’m a male athlete. I ran track in college. I broke all the women’s world records in my events. Were I to come out as trans and want to continue my track career as a woman, what would be the point? I understand that the hormones have a negative impact on Read more

I mean you bring up some good points but I think at this point the reports are leaning in the other direction, if they put out and official statement soon we will know for sure but right now shit isn’t looking good

I’m no fan of MLB owners, but trying to cast the players as these deserving union men who are getting ripped off is a bit much. Half the guys in the MLB are right-wing douches who don’t give a shit about unions except for the one that helps them. Read more

Im sorry Gabe but all value is subjective. Meaning there is no objective standard of what something is worth. Machado and Harper are not “worth” any particular salary. Yes, in the past, players similar to them (or even worse than them) got big ling term deals. That’s is no guarantee of future deals and not proof that Read more

Yeah, people don’t care about player salaries nearly as much if the Dodgers and Yankees can just run $300M payrolls every year and keep outrageously bad contracts on the roster instead of having to choose between getting out of them or getting financially punished for not doing so.

Of course, people had plenty of Read more

Keep in mind that not all the facts are in. With most of these stories, the calls to police turn out to be justified.

C’mon, you really need to fact check before writing a story — simple google search will tell you that the Medical Examiner’s report stated Allen was shot in the back of the head, while sleeping.....not the chest. Read more

I think the problem here is that she was not escaping her pimp, she killed a John and went back to the pimp. (I first had assumed she killed the pimp.)

Prosecution argued that she killed a sleeping man, defense argued that she was afraid the John would hurt or kill her. A 43-y.o. man who pays for a 16 y.o. prostitute Read more

She shot the guy who had solicited her for sex that day, not the pimp. The pimp was back at the hotel, who later died in a gun dispute in a totally unrelated incident years later. I don’t think everyone is clear on that.

Why do you find it necessary to lie about the facts of this case? She wasn’t sold to him in sexual slavery. She solicited him earlier that day in a Sonic parking lot and lied about her age when she did it. Then she fucked him, waited for him to fall asleep, then killed him in his sleep and stole the contents of his Read more

That may make you feel better, but you clearly aren’t paying attention to what is going on in America right now. Lotsa people still gleefully chanting Lock Her Up, cheering brown kids put in cages. If you don’t think Fox and it’s lemmings wouldn’t rile them up, with or without some (more) ignorant tweets from Read more

At this point Kaep would be a huuuuuge distraction for any team that is in the playoff hunt. It’s all any reporter will want to talk about, and it could cause a rift in the locker room. Kaep was good but not transcendent. It would be the right thing for the league, but risky for the team. New England has a strong Read more

Probably in the minority here, but I think it’s fair for an athlete not to want to take part in someone else’s political speech - not wearing the jersey isn’t that different than not wanting to stand for the anthem. This isn’t a private team, it’s the USWNT, for all intents and purposes an arm of the state. Read more
