Giancarlo Stanton Rages in Miami w/ 2 Chainz Hours After Yankees Trade

12/11/2017 6:46 AM PST
Breaking News

Giancarlo Stanton wasn't in a hurry to leave Miami after he was traded to the Yankees -- he stuck around an extra day to rage in Miami with 2 Chainz

The big trade news was announced late Friday night -- but less than 24 hours later, Stanton was at Rockwell x 1OAK Art Basel pop up event in Miami on Saturday ... where he got onstage and partied with the rapper. 

Also, CHECK OUT THAT PINKY RING -- LEGENDARY!!!!!

2 Chainz also hooked Stanton up with a magnum sized bottle of Ace of Spades bubbly.

The ex-Marlins superstar is set to be introduced as the new face of the Yankees Monday ... so, this could have been his unofficial "goodbye" to the city he ran for half a decade.

It's almost kinda sad -- until you remember his $325 MILLION contract. 

NFL Protests Proposed $100M 'Bribe' Fails ... Players Keep Kneeling

12/3/2017 4:39 PM PST

The NFL tried buying their players off with nearly $100 million so they'd stop kneeling and protesting at games ... but apparently it didn't work.

The NFL recently proposed a deal in which they'd contribute $89 million over seven years to 2 organizations focused on African-American causes, as well as to the Players Coalition so they could use the money for whatever causes they wanted.

In exchange, the NFL wanted the National Anthem protests to end -- but the deal seems to have failed. Many players continued to kneel and demonstrate during this week's games.

The L.A. Chargers' left tackle Russel Okung raised his fist during the National Anthem Sunday, and the Oakland Raiders' Marshawn Lynch remained seated for the song. L.A. Rams player Robert Quinn raised his fist as well, and other players linked arms in solidarity.

At least 6 other players between Miami, New Orleans and San Francisco all took a knee after some of them publicly raised issues with the proposed deal from their bosses. 

Back to the drawing board.

EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports might've unearthed 1 of the biggest shockers in NFL friendship history ... 'cause Ricky Williams told us he and Mike Ditka will always be bros!!!

You remember the trade ... Ditka gave up 8 PICKS to draft Ricky to the Saints back in '99 -- but NOLA bombed and Da Coach got canned.

But Williams says he and Ditka -- differences aside -- are "homies for life" ... 'cause Mike's one of the few guys he can always turn to.

"I remember when I played for him ... he said, 'If you can count on 1 hand how many people you have as close friends, then you’re doing OK.' And that's been advice I've held close to my heart all these years."

If you're not into the warm and fuzzy stuff, Ricky also weighed in on the insane Aqib Talib vs. Michael Crabtree brawl ... and his reaction was kinda surprising.

Jarvis Landry Case: Video Shows WR Push Baby Mama Officials Believe It Was Accident

9/26/2017 4:08 PM PDT

Prosecutors say surveillance video shows Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry pushing his baby mama during a dispute in front of her car on April 1 ... but they ultimately believed the woman who claimed it was accidental. 

TMZ Sports has obtained official documents in the domestic violence case -- in which prosecutors say Landry's baby mama initially told responding officers that Jarvis had "pushed her back by placing his hands on her chest and pushed her backwards into the vehicle, causing her to strike her back against the top of the vehicle."

Jarvis denied getting physical with the woman -- but cops noticed a surveillance camera nearby and obtained the footage. 

Officials say the footage shows Jarvis pushing the woman -- and then possibly slapping her twice. 

The woman said Jarvis did NOT slap her -- he was reaching for a cell phone -- and it only LOOKED like he slapped her. 

Cops say they enhanced the video and it appeared the woman was right about the slap. As for the push, cops say both the woman and Jarvis claimed the contact was unintentional -- he was trying to grab her phone and accidentally pushed her chest. 

The woman later told investigators she was emotional from just having a kid when she initially told cops Jarvis pushed her -- and insisted she had "exaggerated" the facts.

Officials ultimately believed the contact was an accident and decided NOT to press domestic violence charges against Landry.
