MLB's Joe Morgan Goes Full Tupac On Steroid Users Keep 'Em Outta Hall of Fame

11/21/2017 7:53 AM PST
Breaking News

MLB Hall of Famer Joe Morgan hates steroid users ... 'cause he just destroyed them all in a SCATHING letter to Hall of Fame voters BEGGING them to keep all the alleged dopers out.

Morgan was elected to the Hall in 1990, and it's clear he doesn't want to share it with any science projects, writing an open letter on behalf of all clean members of the hall.

It's long, but here are some of the most Tupac Hit-Em-Up style gems.

"We hope the day never comes when known steroid users are voted in to the Hall of Fame. They cheated. Steroid users don't belong there."

"The cheating that tainted an era now risks tainting the Hall of Fame too."

Pretty gangsta, we know, but nothing compared to the most potent bar from the salvo ... we like to call it "The Ultimatum."

"It's gotten to the point where Hall of Famers are saying if steroid users get in, they'll no longer come to Cooperstown for induction ceremonies or other events."

BTW the finalists for this year's class were just announced, and a couple of the guys are definitely dudes Morgan is talking about. We'll have to see if they respond with some Ether of their own.

LaVar Ball I Would've Thanked Trump If He Put LiAngelo on Air Force One

11/20/2017 8:49 PM PST
Breaking News

LaVar Ball says he would've given President Trump a "thank you" had the Prez brought LiAngelo Ball and his UCLA teammates back home from China on Air Force One.

Ball appeared on CNN with Chris Cuomo Monday night to discuss the ongoing battle with Trump -- and to nobody's surprise -- LaVar held his ground in NOT thanking 45. Ball's main argument ... there's no proof Trump was the primary reason his son and teammates were sprung from the country.

There was one thing, however, that LaVar says would've granted the Prez an automatic "thank you" from father Ball ... a free ride home on AF1.

LaVar went on to say ... Trump's got bigger fish to fry, so let the UCLA thing go.

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."

UFC's Fabricio Werdum Boomerang Attack on Rising Star ... After Alleged Slur

11/16/2017 7:20 AM PST
Breaking News

UFC star Fabricio Werdum attacked another UFC fighter with a boomerang in Australia. 

Seriously -- we're not making this up.

It all went down at the UFC fighters' hotel in Sydney ... when rising welterweight star Colby Covington allegedly called Werdum a "filthy Brazilian" in the lobby.

FYI, Covington hurled a similar insult at a Brazilian crowd after his last fight in Sao Paulo ... and Fabricio's one of the UFC's biggest Brazilian stars.

So, Werdum did what any angry Australian tourist would do -- he took it outside and UNCORKED HIS DAMN BOOMERANG!!!

Later on, Covington recorded himself going on a racist and homophobic rant against the former heavyweight champ ... where he claimed Fabricio also punched him in the face.

"Look at you, f**king f**got," Colby said. "F**k Brazil. F**k Fabricio Werdum ... and they wonder why they get talked to like that -- 'cause they’re a bunch of animals."

But Werdum says he didn't punch Covington ... claiming Colby got physical first by throwing a kick.

The UFC released a statement saying they'll investigate the incident. Covington told MMA Fighting he plans on pressing charges.

Conor McGregor Incident KO'd Fighter Sounds Off ... 'You Can't F**kin' Do That!!!'

11/13/2017 3:04 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The guy who got KO'd in the cage right before Conor McGregor LOST HIS DAMN MIND feels pretty much how we all do about the situation ...

"You can't f**kin' jump out of a crowd in a sporting contest and do all that type of stuff," John Redmond told TMZ Sports. "In no place in life is that really tolerated."

John's being pretty cool to Conor, all things considered ... saying he's got no plans of taking legal action even though McGregor's outburst almost got him trampled.

That said, Redmond tells us there's only 1 way Conor can make it right -- A REMATCH (with his teammate, Charlie Ward).

"Tell your boy to bleedin' gear up again and get in and fight me!"

Doesn't seem like McGregor's in the mood to make amends with anyone ... but maybe for a fellow countryman??

Conor McGregor 'F**k Yous All' ... Responds to Ref Incident

11/13/2017 7:02 AM PST
Breaking News

Conor McGregor is explaining why he "lost it" at an MMA fight in Dublin on Friday -- saying the ref had no business trying to throw him out of the cage.

He also offered up a "f**k yous" to all of his critics.

You remember the incident -- Conor illegally scaled the cage at Bellator 187 after his training partner, Charlie Ward, won by knockout ... and EXPLODED on veteran UFC ref Marc Goddard for breaking up the party. He slapped a regulatory official square in the dome too.

After the fight, everyone was asking the same question -- why did Conor go batsh*t insane?

McGregor tweeted (and then deleted) early Monday morning, saying:

"Bloke KO'd on floor bout a minute straight and ref trying to say fight's not over, Conor. That's when I lost it. F**k yous all."

So, what happens next? Will McGregor be disciplined for getting physical with multiple officials?

We've reached out to the UFC to see if they'll take action. Stay tuned ...

NFL's Jonathan Casillas Insane Video Surfaces from '12 Casino Brawl

11/13/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

NY Giants linebacker Jonathan Casillas should've been a running back -- because it took 5 SECURITY OFFICERS to bring him down during a violent casino clash back in 2012. 

We've been making calls for days trying to gather all the info about this crazy video -- and though the details are scarce, here's what we know ... 

-- It happened at 6 AM on May 12, 2012 at the Harrah's Casino in Atlantic City

-- Before the video begins, Casillas was pissed ... and walked outside to cool off. You see him throw a potted plant across the valet area. 

-- Casillas went back inside and was confronted by several security officers. Things get testy, Casillas tucks his chain, a security officer shoves Casillas and Casillas shoves back

-- Things went nuclear from there. 5 guys tried to take Casillas down. They struggled, but eventually got him to the ground. He was handcuffed and detained. 

-- Two Atlantic City PD officers were involved. 

We've reached out to the Atlantic City PD to find out if criminal charges were filed. One source connected to the incident says a civil suit was filed ... but unclear who filed it or if it's still active. 

Multiple attempts to reach Casillas and his reps were unsuccessful. 

Conor McGregor Slaps MMA Official, Pushes Ref In Crazy Post-Fight Scene

11/10/2017 12:20 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Conor McGregor just went NUCLEAR at an MMA event in Dublin ... slapping a regulatory official and pushing veteran UFC referee Marc Goddard for breaking up his post-fight celebration with training partner Charlie Ward.

It all went down after Ward won by 1st-round KO at Bellator 187 -- which prompted McGregor to jump into the cage to show his SBG Ireland teammate some love. 

One problem -- Conor wasn't allowed in the cage since he wasn't a licensed cornerman for Charlie ... so Goddard and several fight officials stepped in to interrupt their bro moment. 

McGregor was PISSED -- pushing Goddard from behind and getting in his face ... before the officials and BFF Artem Lobov escorted him from the cage.

But Conor wasn't done. He came back, climbed back on top of the cage and straight slapped one of the officials upside the head.

FYI, Goddard ordered McGregor to leave cageside last time Lobov fought in the UFC ... so that's probably what set Conor off.

Still ... gotta think there's gonna be hell to pay for his actions.

UFC's Tyron Woodley Slams McGregor for Gay Slur ... Don't Give Him a Pass!

11/3/2017 2:14 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

UFC champ Tyron Woodley is taking Conor McGregor to task for using the homophobic F-word 3 times at a recent UFC event ... saying he's sick of everyone giving Conor a pass for repeatedly using offensive language. 

"How many passes do we give this dude?" Tyron said on his new show, "The Hollywood Beatdown." "You need to have a bit more of a social conscious when you're saying things."

McGregor has apologized for using the gay slur -- and says he's a supporter of the LGBT community -- but saying "sorry" just ain't cuttin' it with Tyron. 

Woodley pointed to Conor's remarks from earlier this year -- when he told Floyd Mayweather to "dance for me, boy" TWICE -- that he felt were racist in nature. 

T-Wood also goes after Michael Bisping -- vowing to tear his "UFC Tonight" colleague's head off in the octagon for all the crap he's been talking. 

It's no joke ... Woodley says he wants Bisping FOR REAL ... if The Count gets through GSP this weekend. 

O.J. Simpson If Bruce Jenner Wants to Be an Old Woman ... Good for Her!!!

11/2/2017 10:31 AM PDT

O.J. Simpson's taking a transphobic shot at Caitlyn Jenner for her claim she and Kris Jenner knew damn well O.J. killed Nicole and Ron Goldman.

Simpson was out in Las Vegas when a photog asked him about Caitlyn's recent comments. At first, he said he's never met Caitlyn and claims he barely knew Bruce, despite the fact they vacationed together. Then he started jabbing.

Watch ... O.J. seems to think his comment is lighthearted, or even a joke.

We're guessing Caitlyn won't be laughing about it, and we're sure, after seeing this ... there's bad blood between the old friends.

Btw, O.J. also makes it clear he's loving the Vegas life.

UFC's T.J. Dillashaw Cody Garbrandt Needs a Ho Emoji ... Urijah Faber's His Pimp!

10/30/2017 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

T.J. Dillashaw is firing back at Cody Garbrandt for all the snake emojis he's hit him with ... saying his UFC rival should have a prostitute emoji 'cause Urijah Faber's his pimp!!

"Urijah's more his daddy (than his coach/teammate)," T.J. said on the "TMZ Sports" TV show. "He tells him what to do and how to feel ... he's just on his leash and he listens to him."

Garbrandt's been trashing Dillashaw ever since he left him and Faber's MMA team 2 years ago -- droppin' snake-mojis all over social media.

So, we asked T.J. what emoji he would give Cody -- and he went with a working girl ... so long as it came with a pimp emoji for Faber.

FYI, these ex-teammates throw down at UFC 217 on Nov. 4. TJD previewed the fight in our full interview, which you can catch Monday night on FS1.

Kathy Griffin Andy Cohen Diss Isn't Funny ... He's 'Deeply Misogynistic'

10/27/2017 9:26 AM PDT

Kathy Griffin is ripping into Andy Cohen for dissing her to a TMZ photog -- and says he was a horrible misogynist to her while she was at Bravo.

Kathy was reacting to a video we posted where Andy joked he had no idea who Kathy was. It seemed clear he held some sort of grudge ... possibly over Kathy calling their mutual friend, Anderson Cooper, "spineless."

But she is making it clear it goes way deeper than that. Andy was a Bravo exec when Kathy's 'My Life on the D-List' was airing ... as well as several of her comedy specials. She claims Andy "Treated me like a dog" and was "deeply misogynistic."

She wasn't more specific about the allegation.
