Baker Mayfield Punished By Oklahoma ... For Crotch-Grabbing

11/20/2017 10:26 AM PST
Breaking News

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield will NOT start this weekend -- and has been stripped of his team captain status -- as a result of the junk-grabbing gesture during the Kansas game. 

Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley got super emotional -- and had to compose himself to keep from crying -- while announcing the punishment moments ago. 

Mayfield busted out the junk grab as a visual shot at Kansas on Saturday after they refused to shake his hand during the coin toss. 

Mayfield will not start on Saturday against West Virginia -- but he will play. 

Riley says Mayfield is still just a kid -- despite the fact he's 22 years old -- and still has a lot of growing to do as a person.

Exclusive Details

Former NFL wide receiver Terry Glenn died in a car crash in Texas, officials confirm. He was 43. 

We're told Glenn was in a single-car accident early Monday morning and was ejected from his vehicle. By the time officials responded to the crash site, it was clear Glenn had passed. He was pronounced dead on arrival. 

Glenn had a passenger in his vehicle -- we're told it was his fiancee -- but she survived the crash. She's currently being treated at the ICU of a local hospital. 

We're told officials plan on doing a full autopsy, including toxicology, to see if they can get more information on what led to the crash. 

Glenn was the 7th overall pick in the 1996 NFL Draft -- taken by the New England Patriots after an impressive run at Ohio State.

He went on to play 12 seasons in the NFL -- with the Patriots, Packers and Cowboys.

Terry also famously caught Tom Brady's very first TD pass in 2001.

11/20/2017 6:30 AM PST
Breaking News

Kristin Cavallari doesn't seem happy with Jay Cutler's decision to return to the NFL -- and after her husband was knocked out of Sunday's game with a concussion, she cryptically sounded off. 

"Sometimes I wish I could just say how I really feel about this football shit ... And give commentary about what I’m realllllly thinking," Kristin posted from the family area of Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. 

"How great would that be."

Cutler had retired before the 2017 season -- but signed a 1-year deal with the Miami Dolphins back in August after their starting QB Ryan Tannehill suffered a season-ending injury. 

Earlier this year, Cavallari told TooFab.com her husband was excited to play another year so their kids could see daddy at work. 

Clearly, she isn't feeling the same way ...

Breaking News

Donald Trump has turned his sights on BeastMode -- blasting the NFL star for sitting during the U.S. national anthem -- but standing for the Mexican national anthem -- during his game this weekend.

Marshawn Lynch was clearly looking to send a political message when his Oakland Raiders played the New England Patriots in Mexico City on Sunday.

But it rubbed Trump the wrong way ... with POTUS tweeting:

"Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect!"

"Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down."

Simone Biles Blasts Gabby Douglas Don't Victim Shame Aly Raisman!

11/17/2017 4:19 PM PST
Breaking News

5:00 PM PT -- Gabby has pulled a near 180, saying she didn't word her reply correctly and "regardless of what you wear, abuse under any circumstance is never acceptable." She's also apologized and says she stands by her teammates.

Simone Biles is publicly attacking her former Team USA gymnastics teammate Gabby Douglas -- and it's all over comments Gabby made insinuating some women invite sexual abuse by the way they dress. 

It all started with Aly Raisman ... their 2016 U.S. Olympic teammate who recently went public with allegations she was sexually assaulted by ex-Team USA doctor Larry Nassar

Raisman -- who famously posed nude for the ESPN Body Issue -- received hate from people who shot down her story because of the provocative pics. 

Raisman clapped back with a message on social media Friday morning saying, "Just because a woman does a sexy photoshoot or wears a sexy outfit does not give a man the right to shame her or not believe her when she comes forward about sexual abuse."

That's when Gabby got involved ... saying:

"However it is our responsibility as women to dress modestly and be classy. Dressing in a provocative/sexual way entices the wrong crowd."

Biles saw Gabby's comment and went scorched-earth ... saying: 

"Shocks me that I’m seeing this but it doesn’t surprise me... honestly seeing this brings me to tears bc as your teammate I expected more from you & to support her."

She continued, "I support you Aly 💕 & all the other women out there!  STAY STRONG.

We reached out to Douglas for comment -- so far, no word back.

Jameis Winston Uber Driver Is Confused I Wasn't Sitting Next to Her

11/17/2017 10:46 AM PST
Breaking News

Jameis Winston says reports he sexually assaulted a female Uber driver are FALSE -- and claims he was NOT the only person in the car that night as the driver has claimed. 

Winston just tweeted about the BuzzFeed report in which Uber driver Kate claims Winston grabbed her crotch during a rowdy drive home from the Scottsdale bar scene in March 2016.

Kate claimed Winston was in the front passenger seat when the alleged assault went down. Winston is saying Kate is wrong about the allegations AND who was next to her that night.

"The story falsely accuses me of making inappropriate contact with this driver," Winston says ... "I believe the driver was confused as to the number of passengers in the car and who was sitting next to her."

"The accusation is false, and given the nature of the allegation and increased awareness and consideration of these types of matters, I am addressing this false report immediately."

"While I am certain that I did not make any inappropriate contact, I don’t want to engage in a battle with the driver and I regret if my demeanor or presence made her uncomfortable in any way."

The part that's unclear ... is Jameis leaving the door open to the possibility that whoever was in the passenger seat DID sexually assault the driver? He's not saying it didn't happen ... he's just saying, "It wasn't me."

Sources connected to Winston tell us he's adamant there were 2 other people in the Uber with him that night.

Jameis Winston Allegedly Groped Uber Driver's Crotch ... QB Denies Claim

11/17/2017 9:24 AM PST
Breaking News

Jameis Winston is adamantly denying grabbing a female Uber driver by the crotch during a March 2016 ride despite a complaint the driver made to the company ... but now the NFL is investigating. 

The woman who identifies herself as Kate told BuzzFeed she picked Jameis up from a nightlife area in Scottsdale, Arizona around 2 AM -- and Jameis got in the front passenger seat.

During the ride, Kate says the Tampa Bay Bucs star was out of control -- screaming homophobic comments to pedestrians -- before requesting a stop at a Mexican restaurant. 

While in the drive-thru line to pick up food, Kate says Winston "reached over and put his fingers on my crotch. It wasn't accidental."

Kate says she wasn't just "creeped out" ... "I was frozen."

After the ride, Kate says she filed a complaint with Uber but did not go to police because she feared backlash from NFL fans. 

Winston's camp says the allegations are completely false -- "We categorically deny this allegation. It is our understanding the Uber driver was unable to identify the specific individual who allegedly touched this driver inappropriately. The only reason his name is being dragged in to this is that his Uber account was used to call the ride."

Uber says Jameis has been banned from using the app in the future.  

The NFL has confirmed to TMZ Sports the league is investigating the situation. An NFL rep tells us, "The allegation was shared with the NFL and we have reached out to Uber to request any information they may have."

Nate Diaz Hits MMA Training Center With Tyron Woodley Fight Looming

After Tyron Woodley called him out Thursday, Nate Diaz went to his brother's MMA studio in Stockton, CA begging the question ... is he finally gonna take the fight?!?! 

Woodley announced on "The Hollywood Beatdown" that he already agreed to fight Diaz at UFC 219 in Vegas on Dec. 30 ... but he was waiting on Nate to sign his contract. 

Nate's been radio silent ... but he popped up at the Nick Diaz Academy where a jiu-jitsu class was in full effect. 

Unclear if Nate was participating in the training or just hanging out with his bro. 

One thing's for sure -- Woodley doesn't think ANY amount of training will save Nate if they do face off in the Octagon.  

Jeffrey Tambor Accused of Sexual Harassment Again ... This Time by 'Transparent' Actor

11/16/2017 7:02 PM PST
Breaking News

Jeffrey Tambor is once again facing allegations of sexual harassment ... and once again by a person who happens to be transgender.

Fellow "Transparent" actor Trace Lysette -- who plays Shea on the Amazon TV series -- claims Tambor made lewd, sexually suggestive and unwelcome remarks to her several times, and once pressed up against her during a break in filming in a "sexually aggressive manner" ... according to Deadline.

Tambor -- who's already being investigated by Amazon for harassment claims made by his ex-assistant -- admits he can be "ill-tempered" and a difficult person to work with, but denies any predatory behavior.

Tambor also apologized, saying ... "I am deeply sorry if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being sexually aggressive or if I ever offended or hurt anyone. But the fact is, for all my flaws, I am not a predator and the idea that someone might see me in that way is more distressing than I can express.”

Lysette has reportedly not filed an official complaint with Amazon, but the company plans to add the new allegations to its current investigation.

It's interesting timing -- reports Thursday suggested "Transparent" writers were prepping for next season to be without Tambor, even before claims made by Lysette.
