Donald Trump

Compares China to Tom Brady

... They're Kicking Our Ass!

6/16/2015 9:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Donald Trump is already droppin' the sports metaphors -- comparing China to the New England Patriots ... and claiming their leaders are like Tom Brady!!! 

During his "I'm running for President" speech moments ago ... Trump took several shots at the Obama administration and other U.S. political leaders. 

That's when he dropped the Brady shot -- saying China's leaders are like Tom Brady and the U.S. is like a high school football team ... "They are ripping us!" 

He went on ... "Our leaders don't understand the game."

New England Pats

Champagne Chuggin' AfterParty

... Brady Out, Garoppolo In

EXCLUSIVE

0615_pats_afterparty_gallery_launchHow close are the New England Patriots??? Well, they don't mind swappin' a little spit ... 'cause they chugged champagne together at an afterparty ... and TMZ Sports has the pics.  

After raging at the Super Bowl ring celebration at Robert Kraft's house last night, a bunch of the guys kept the party train rollin' to Cure Lounge in Boston -- where they raged 'til 2AM. 

Among the partiers ... Gronk, Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, LaGarrette Blount, Malcolm Butler and Jonas Gray

But the most interesting part ... Tom Brady decided to tap out after the main party -- so his backup Jimmy Garoppolo represented for the QBs instead. 

We're told the gang popped a $7,500 bottle of Belaire Rose -- Rick Ross' stuff -- and passed it around like blame in a Deflategate investigation. 

To the victor goes the hangover! 

Aaron Hernandez

Fights Murder Conviction

Lying Juror Had It Out for Me

6/15/2015 11:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0615-aaron-hernandez-GETTY-01Aaron Hernandez is throwing the most desperate Hail Mary ever ... trying to challenge his murder conviction by claiming one of the jurors may have had it out for him BEFORE the trial started. 

Aaron's legal team just filed new court docs in an apparent effort to find a flaw in the Odin Lloyd murder case -- in the hopes Hernandez could get his murder conviction overturned. 

Hernadez's main argument -- his lawyer says he received a tip from an anonymous woman AFTER the verdict ... saying she recognized one of the jurors whose ID was revealed on TV. 

Aaron's lawyer says the woman also claimed she could prove the juror was familiar with the Lloyd murder and was "hoping" to be on the Hernandez jury. 

If true, AH's lawyer claims it would mean the juror would have LIED during voir dire when asked if he/she had knowledge about the case. 

The problem -- the lawyer doesn't know the mystery woman's identity ... since she called him from a blocked number and refused to give her full name because she was afraid. 

Now, the judge will rule on whether or not the court should look into the matter further. 

Bottom line -- if you're a betting person, put your money somewhere else.

'Welcome to Return with Pants'

Exclusive Details

0615-jameis-winston-twitter-01Jameis Winston learned the hard way ... star power stops at the shorts -- especially when trying to get into a bar with a strict PANTS ONLY dress code. 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB was rejected from the Blue Martini bar in Tampa when he tried to get in Friday night while wearing a pair of shorts ... in front of a sign that said, "Dress code strictly enforced."

We spoke with one of the managers ... who tells us, "It was nothing personal. He was not allowed inside because he did not meet the standards of the dress code."

We're told the bar would ABSOLUTELY welcome Jameis back if he comes around again ... as long as he's got pants.

adrian-peterson-getty-01There's NO slowing down Adrian Peterson -- especially when it comes to reproduction -- 'cause his wife announced she's 5 months preggo ... which brings his count to EIGHT ... depending on who you believe. 

Peterson's wife, Ashley,  just broke the baby news to ESPN ... telling the network she's pregnant with Adrian's 6th child. 

But back in 2013, Peterson's baby mama #2 Erica Syion told TMZ she knew there were 7 OTHER KIDS. 

Of course, one of Peterson's children -- a son that he had never met -- was killed in 2013. 

Peterson got married to Ashley in 2014. They already have one child together.

NFL's Torrey Smith

Ray Rice Deserves 2nd Chance

'Good People Make Mistakes'

6/12/2015 11:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0612-ray-rice-torrey-smith-getty-01Ray Rice has paid for his mistakes and deserves a 2nd shot in the NFL ... so says Ray's ex-Ravens teammate (and good friend) Torrey Smith who tells TMZ Sports he can still be one of the best RBs in the league.

Ray is training his ass off at the moment ... hoping a team will give him the opportunity to prove he can still compete at the highest level and sign him for the 2015 season. 

The obstacle, of course, is his past -- and while Smith acknowledges what Ray did was "horrible," he believes Rice is truly sorry ... and has worked hard to become a better person. 

"Good people make mistakes," Smith says ... "I believe in second chances and I think society is supposed to be built on the idea that you can suffer consequences and come back."

"People sometimes want you to apologize a certain way, crying or all upset. He's made things right with his wife and family and earned respect with his actions since the incident."

"He's a way better person than he showed on that tape."

Brandon Spikes

Cops Call BS On Deer Story

Charge NFL'er with Hit & Run

breaking news

0612-brandon-spikes-GETTY-01NFL linebacker Brandon Spikes never hit a deer on a Massachusetts freeway this weekend -- instead, cops say he struck an SUV and fled ... and now he's been hit with criminal charges. 

The story was bizarre from the start -- with officials discovering Brandon's expensive Maybach car on the side of the interstate in Foxboro early Sunday morning with no signs of Brandon. 

The OnStar operator who responded to the crash said Brandon claimed he had struck a deer.

Cops smelled something fishy and investigated ... and now, they believe there was no deer ... instead, he smashed into the back of an SUV -- leaving 3 people with minor injuries, including a 12-year-old girl.

Officials say Spikes has been charged with leaving the scene of a personal injury crash, negligent driving, speeding and failure to stay in his lane. 

Spikes was cut by the New England Patriots following the crash.

Clowns Ref at Celeb Hoops Game

... YOU SUCK!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Here's video of San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin GOING OFF on a ref at a celebrity basketball game ... telling the guy he SUCKS ... despite the fact AQ's team won!!!

It's pretty funny stuff ... Anquan accuses the guy of being on the take -- and making calls for the other team at the David Clowney celeb basketball game to raise money for underprivileged youth. 

Obviously, the whole thing was in good fun ... but the best part is when the ref starts going after Quan's game -- saying he cant shoot for a damn so all he did was rebound like Dennis Rodman. 

Willis McGahee

Here's Why I'm Lasering Myself

6/9/2015 3:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Willis McGahee says there's a damn good reason why he's going under the laser to rid himself of armpit hair for the rest of his life ... and it's pretty simple -- dude doesn't wanna stink. 

The ex-NFL running back appeared on "TMZ Hollywood Sports" on Reelz ... and told us he works out like a maniac ... and having hairy armpits only makes the B.O. smell extra funky. 

So, the solution? Break out the laser and go to town. 

Ya gotta listen to Willis explain ... it's hilarious ... and McGahee says he likes it so much, he's spreading the movement to other areas of his body. 

Ronaldo would be proud.

Uncle Sam Wants Me

To Help NSA Spies!!

0609_Ravens-player-gives-presentation-to-NSA_2

The NSA has its eyes on Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman John Urschel -- but this is a good thing ... 'cause the guy is so damn brilliant, the government desperately needs his help.

TMZ Sports has learned the National Security Agency -- yes, the guys who track down terrorists -- recruited Urschel after seeing the skills he displayed while working toward a Ph.D in math.

It's pretty amazing, and kinda 'Beautiful Mind'-y -- but Urschel actually schooled NSA agents last week ... delivering a lecture filled with a bunch of math stuff way above our pay grade and education. 

But we're told John killed it ... explaining an algorithm he created that -- in layman's terms -- allows the agency to take a lot of complicated data, and present it in terms mortals can understand. Kinda like super math for super dummies. 

Urschel tells us he was pumped about his presentation, and says after the NFL ... he's open to doing more with the NSA. However he adds, "I'd have to weigh it with other opportunities ... such as being a professor, being a researcher, or working in the industry."

Our brains hurt.

NFL's Willis McGahee

Lasering My Armpits

... And Proud Of It!

6/9/2015 11:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Here's Willis McGahee once again proving NFL tough guys can make anything look boss ... including getting laser treatment on their armpits while wearing designer shades.

The former All-Pro running back channeled his inner Carrie Bradshaw ... and hit up Flawless Icon MedSpa in Miami to zap away that pesky pit bush.

It was McGahee's first session ... it usually takes a few before the hair stops growing back permanently. 

Willis claims the process barely hurt ... ranking his pain as a 1 on a scale of 1 to 5.

So, guess this means no more waxing???
