Tom Brady I Probably Won't Do 'SNL' Again ... Here's Why

11/19/2018 2:57 PM PST
Breaking News

Tom Brady ain't going to be reprising his role as the terrible throwing dude at a carnival anytime soon -- the Pats QB says his career as a "Saturday Night Live" host is likely over. 

And why? He's too damn busy

"I'm basically on a reality TV show every Sunday afternoon for 3 hours so I feel like I'm on TV enough in the Fall and Winter."

The GOAT appeared on WEEI's "Mut & Callahan" on Monday and was asked about life outside of football -- particularly if he'd ever return to 30 Rock like he did back in 2005 when he famously played "Alan" ... a guy with an arm like Nathan Peterman

TB12 says he loves the show ... but it's too big of a commitment and he'd rather be hanging out with Gisele and the kids. 

"It's hard for my family to give that up," Brady says.

"It's hard to say, 'All right guys, well, I'm going to go off and do another week of something that I've really done before.'"

ICYMI ... the carnival sketch was Brady's best work -- but he also donned a sultan outfit and played the manager of "Falafel City" ... and had a sketch where he joked about his rivalry with Peyton Manning and other QBs.

Good times.

Colin Kaepernick GF Blasts NFL 'They're Still Blackballing Him'

11/19/2018 1:28 PM PST
Breaking News

Colin Kaepernick's girlfriend is lashing out at the NFL -- claiming the only reason CK doesn't have a job is because the shot callers in the league are still blackballing him. 

Nessa -- a hugely famous New York DJ -- weighed in after their good friend, Eric Reid, told reporters that Kap has NOT thrown in the towel when it comes to an NFL comeback. 

Reid said he's one of Colin's closest friends and said Colin not only wants to play, "He's ready to play" -- and he's still working out 6 days a week. 

Nessa confirmed everything Reid said -- and emphasized that "all the teams know" Colin is NFL ready right now. 

That's when she went in even harder on the league ... 

"Colin trains everyday. All the teams know. But they’d rather keep blackballing him. The league, owners & mgmt are the ones who don’t want him to play."

She added, "Journalists should ask the league why they’re blackballing Colin."

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand Nessa's frustration with scrubs like Nathan Peterman (no offense) still getting workouts with NFL teams while Colin's phone ain't even ringing. 

Ex-49ers RB Jarryd Hayne Arrested for Sexual Assault ... Faces 20 Years

11/19/2018 11:34 AM PST
Breaking News

Ex-49ers running back Jarryd Hayne -- who's also an international rugby star -- was arrested in Australia for aggravated sexual assault and now faces up to 20 years in prison. 

Officials say the accuser is a 26-year-old woman who claimed she hooked up with Hayne on Sept. 30 in what started as a consensual sexual encounter. She claimed the two met online. 

But, at some point during the incident, the woman claims Hayne's actions turned criminal and she suffered injuries as a result. 

Cops investigated the matter and ultimately determined there was enough evidence to charge Hayne with a crime -- "aggravated sexual assault inflicting actual bodily harm."

Hayne turned himself in to police on Monday and was released on bail several hours later. 

A spokeswoman for NSW Police issued a statement to local media outlets saying -- "Police are investigating following reports a woman was sexually assaulted by a 30-year-old man in late September."

"The investigation is being led by detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad."

Hayne is a massive star in Australia -- and famously left the rugby world in 2015 for a brief stint with the San Francisco 49ers. He flashed potential on the field but it ultimately didn't work out. 

It's not the first time Hayne has been accused of a sex crime -- back in 2015, a woman in the United States claimed Hayne raped her after she had been drinking and passed out. 

Cops investigated but ultimately did NOT charge Hayne with a crime. However, she is still suing him in civil court. 

Roy Halladay Makes Hall of Fame Ballot ... 1 Year After Death

11/19/2018 9:53 AM PST
Breaking News

No surprise here ... but Roy Halladay has officially been placed on the ballot for the Baseball Hall of Fame ... 1 year after his tragic death in a plane crash off the Gulf of Mexico. 

Halladay's nomination was NOT advanced due to his death -- he last pitched in 2013, satisfying the usual 5-year waiting period. 

Most experts agree Halladay is a 1st ballot lock -- since he was an 8-time All-Star and won 2 Cy Young Awards during his 15-year MLB career.  

In 2010, Halladay famously threw the 2nd no-hitter in MLB postseason history -- when the Philadelphia Phillies blanked the Cincinnati Reds in Game 1 of the NLDS. 

Halladay died on Nov. 7, 2017 while piloting a new ICON A5 single passenger amphibious plane over the Gulf of Mexico. 

Witnesses had said Halladay was flying dangerously and lost control of the plane -- which eventually plunged into the water. 

Halladay was 40-years-old. 

Other big names on the 2019 Hall of Fame ballot include Mariano Rivera, Todd Helton and Andy Pettitte

Pettitte could be an interesting one to watch considering he admitted to taking performance-enhancing drugs during his MLB career. 

The results of the HOF voting will be announced in January. 

Ezekiel Elliott Clowns Bow Wow ... After 'Boys Beat Falcons

Breaking News

Bow Wow's gonna hate this ... 

Ezekiel Elliott's keeping one of the most embarrassing moments of the rapper's life alive -- bringing back the #BowWowChallenge after destroying the guy's favorite team

You remember the Bow Bow Challenge, right? When Shad Moss was mocked ruthlessly for posting a pic on social media implying he was flying on his own private jet ... when he really wasn't. 

The scandal inspired a viral challenge of people clowning the rapper for lying. Good times. 

The fad eventually died off ... but Zeke just brought it back after he worked the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

The running back grabbed Dak Prescott and his right tackle La'el Collins and pretended they were off to the P.J. while the rest of the squad hit the commercial airliner.

"So this how the team go home -- and this how we go home! Bow Wow Challenge, baby!!"

As for Zeke ... it's time to get serious -- Dallas plays the Washington Redskins for first place in the NFC East on Thursday!

Sterling Shepard Rips Nail Off Big Toe ... In Disgusting Video

Breaking News

Here's the grossest thing you'll see all day ... NY Giants WR Sterling Shepard straight-up pulled the nail off his big toe -- and documented it all on video.

The New York star hit the Giants locker room Monday ... and noticed his foot needed a little manicuring after beating the Buccaneers on Sunday.

So, Shepard reached down ... grabbed the nail on his left foot ... plucked it straight off -- AND DIDN'T EVEN FLINCH!!!

"Aw, yeah! It's time to come off! Yessir!"

Unclear when Shepard suffered the toe catastrophe that caused the gruesome scene ... but we're all hopeful he puts the camera down next time it happens.

Football players, man.

Antonio Cromartie NFL Is Blackballing Kaepernick ... Redskins Prove That!

11/19/2018 7:53 AM PST
Breaking News

The NFL is STILL blackballing Colin Kaepernick from the league ... and the Washington Redskins' QB tryout list Monday is legit proof of that -- so says Antonio Cromartie.

The Redskins lost Alex Smith for the season to a gruesome leg injury Sunday ... and shortly after, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the team is bringing in some QBs to try to replace him.

Some of the names: Mark Sanchez, EJ Manuel, Kellen Clemens and TJ Yates.

"No @Kaepernick7 shows you how @NFL continue to black ball him," Cromartie said.

"I’m sorry but none of these QB’s are better than Kap. #ImWithKap"

The ex-DB ain't wrong ... none of the 4 quarterbacks on the Skins' tryout list has a career QB rating above 77.1 ... while Kap still owns an 88.9 mark.

As we previously reported ... Kap's been outta the league since 2016 after he began kneeling during national anthems -- but he's been training his ass off for another shot at the league ever since.

Question is ... will an invite ever come??

Mohamed Sanu honored comic book legend Stan Lee on his cleats during the Falcons game on Sunday ... and the final product would make the Spidey creator proud.

The artist behind the shoe design is Dez Customz -- who has done work for other huge NFL stars like Leonard Fournette and Cam Newton.

The Falcons ultimately lost 22-19 ... but Sanu won the kick game for sure.

Man Arrested Threatened to Drop Bombs in Bathroom ... Claims He Meant Poop!

11/19/2018 7:56 AM PST
Breaking News

A New Orleans man was arrested at a Willie's Chicken Shack after allegedly claiming he was going to "blow the bathroom up."

Problem is ... the guy claims he was talking about butt bombs -- not actual explosives!!!

And yes, this is a real story. 

The man in the mug shot is 30-year-old Arthur Posey -- who hit up the Canal Street restaurant at night on Nov. 13. 

Employees told police Posey made a violent threat against the place -- allegedly saying, "Y’all about to close right now because I’m going to get a bomb and blow this place up.”

When cops tracked down Posey, he claimed it was a giant misunderstanding -- explaining he told staffers he was going to "blow the bathroom up" ... meaning, he was gonna poop his brains out. 

Cops didn't buy what Posey was selling and arrested him. He's now facing 2 counts of communicating false information of planned arson.

He's due back in court later this month -- where he'll try to convince a judge the allegations are just a bunch of crap.  

Enzo Amore Booted from WWE's 'Survivor Series' After Firing, Rape Allegation

11/18/2018 5:55 PM PST
Breaking News

Fired WWE star Enzo Amore got tackled to the ground and kicked out of a wrestling event Sunday that he probably (definitely) shouldn't have been at.

The former two-time Crusierweight Champion crashed WWE's 'Survivor Series' and made a fool of himself in the crowd by standing on his chair, holding up his belt ... and screaming A LOT. He was clearly pissed ... but security was having NONE of it, and chased him out the building.

You can see that Enzo briefly got away from guards, and seemed to exit on his accord -- with his hands up, no less. It's unclear if authorities dealt with him outside, but he definitely interrupted things enough to cause a scene. The crowd wasn't diggin' it either.

In footage obtained by Pro Wrestling Sheet, you see Enzo being escorted through the tunnel and right out the exit door. There didn't seem to be much discussion or chastising ... just a good ol' fashioned GTFOH. 

As we reported ... Enzo was accused of rape at the beginning of 2018, and was fired by the WWE shortly after. The Phoenix Police Dept. eventually closed the case, and no charges were filed.

This probably ain't the best way to get back into the ring ... just sayin'.

Amanda Knox must really be into sci-fi ... 'cause her proposal had a definite theme, and a ton of production from her BF-turned-fiancé. Spoiler alert: she said yes!

Amanda posted video Friday of Christopher Robinson pulling off a proposal that included special effects. It starts with Amanda and Christopher heading outside after hearing a meteor strike in the backyard. Yeah, dude even busted out sound effects.

You gotta see it ... smoke, lights, a fake crater and a so-called "data crystal" outlining their "coalescence." Space geeks think of everything.

It all built up to Christopher popping the big question, but you'll notice one big thing missing -- a ring. Chill, Amanda doesn't wear 'em.

The engagement comes 7 years after her murder conviction was overturned and she was released from an Italian prison. Amanda and Christopher have been dating since 2015.

Congrats!!

If you're into this sorta thing, ya might wanna watch the FULL production.
