Inmate attempts to sue NFL for $88 billion over reversed decision

NFL fans will be familiar with the infamous Dez Bryant catch/no catch incident during the Dallas Cowboys vs Green Bay Packers divisional playoff encounter which took place back on Jan, 11th. Wide receiver Bryant of the Cowboys was ruled to have made a catch on a late fourth-down pass, but the call was overturned after Packers’ head coach Mike McCarthy challenged it. Many fans felt it should have been ruled a catch, but according to a badly-written NFL, it looks like the officials technically made the right call.

The Packers ended up winning the NFC contest 26-21, but were then ousted out of the postseason a week later by the defending Super Bowl champions the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle will now meet the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl in Arizona on Feb. 1. One fan who isn’t happy with the ruling on Bryant’s incomplete pass is a man named Terry Hendrix, who just happens to be an inmate at the Fremont Correctional Facility in Canon City, in the state of Colorado.

Twitter’s top 2014 sporting moments

It’s believed that half a billion Tweets are sent around the globe each day and the social network Twitter has put together a list of the most popular sports-related messages for the year 2014. Since soccer’s World Cup took place in Brazil between June and July it’s not going to come as a shock to learn that it was the most Tweeted about sports event of the year. According to Twitter, the month-long tournament prompted 672 million Tweets around the world.

Twitter measured the popularity of the sports events by counting how many messages were sent per minute during a competition. The top five sports-related Tweets in the world all came from the 2014 World Cup and all five of them were regarding Germany, who ended up winning the Jules Rimet Trophy 1-0 over Argentina after extra time.

North America’s top 20 sports cities in 2014

The year is almost over so now’s a good time to take a look back at 2014 and see which North American cities were the most successful when it came to their professional sports franchises.

Some cities are fortunate enough to have teams in all of the top leagues, such as the NFL (football), NBA (basketball), MLB (baseball), NHL (ice hockey) and MLS (soccer). However, other communities may have just one or two pro franchises to cheer for.

For the 2014 rankings, cities have to have at least two pro sports franchises in their greater metropolitan area. The clubs’ records were all taken into account and divided by the number of teams to come to the city’s overall winning percentage. Of course, these numbers may change ever so slightly from now until the end of the year since the NBA, NHL and NFL are still all in action. The records used for the rankings were regular-season games only and no playoff contests.
