Melvin Gordon Apologizes To Fantasy Owners 'I Couldn't Come Thru!!'

12/14/2018 12:45 PM PST
Breaking News

If Melvin Gordon cost ya money last night ... the L.A. Chargers running back says he's truly sorry.

"To my fantasy owners ... who lost without my help I’m sorry," M.G. wrote on social media.

Gordon was a monster this year -- averaging 25.15 fantasy points per game -- but a knee injury sidelined him while many needed him the most in fantasy playoffs Thursday night.

Of course, the NFL superstar was probably the reason you were IN the fantasy playoffs in the first place ... but he's still apologizing nonetheless.

"Crunch time in these playoffs and I couldn’t come thru !!"

But hey, it coulda been worse ... at least fantasy owners had a heads-up a couple hours before kickoff to swap him out of the lineup.

As for his teammate, Keenan Allen ... the same can't be said -- and THAT'S the apology we're all still waiting for!!!

JK These guys don't owe us anything. Heal up, guys!! 

LAPD Trolls Kansas City Police Dept. After Chargers Rob Chiefs

12/14/2018 7:17 AM PST
Breaking News


The Kansas City P.D. was talking all sorts of crap about the Chargers before they took on the Chiefs Thursday night. 

So, when K.C. choked away the game, the LAPD decided to rub some salt in the wound. 

It all started before the big "Thursday Night Football" matchup ... when the KCPD threw shade at the Bolts for their lack of fan support in BOTH San Diego and L.A.

"While our football team doesn't have to move cities to get fans, we'd like to keep our city's traffic (both fans & commuters) moving during tomorrow's Chiefs vs Chargers game."

"Stadium full of people will be going to Arrowhead during rush hour. Plan alt. routes or extra time."

So, when Philip Rivers and company stormed into Arrowhead and silenced the 75,000 fans with a last-second, come-from-behind victory ... the LAPD decided to clap back. 

"It’s ok...we’ll take the 11-3 playoff-bound @Chargers and their great win over the @Chiefs."


Of course ... L.A. cops weren't the only ones getting in on the K.C. trollin' -- Rivers made sure the fans at Arrowhead got some in person too!

The best news for all parties?? Both teams have clinched a playoff berth ... which means we could all get round 3 in just a few weeks.

Can't wait.

ESPN's Cari Champion Defends Stephen A. Smith ... After NFL Brainfart

12/14/2018 6:53 AM PST

Don't worry, Stephen A. Smith ... your colleagues got your back! 

The ESPN star went viral on Thursday because of his DISASTROUS pregame analysis of the Chargers game ... which included a bunch of guys who weren't even playing. 

It was a mess ... and HILARIOUS! 

He mentioned Hunter Henry as a key player while noting the way he's played this year. The problem? Hunter's been out all season with a torn ACL. 

Stephen also mentioned Derrick Johnson as a player to watch for the Chiefs -- despite the fact he hasn't been on the roster since 2017. Good times! 

So, when we saw ESPN's Cari Champion at LAX, we had to ask ... WHAT HAPPENED?!

"Stephen A. is a very smart man. He has a lot going on and he is extremely smart," Champion said. 

"I think Stephen A. has a lot to do ... a lot on his plate ... he knew exactly what he was talking about ... we all make mistakes."

She added, "[You] try doing live television 20,000 hours a day!"

For his part, Stephen A. called the situation a "brain-lock moment" and clowned himself on Twitter. 

"It’s called a MISTAKE because I was think of Virgil Green, but mentioned Hunter because I was multi-tasking. That’s what happens when you’re doing a thousand things."

"But I don’t blame you if you told me to 'Stay Off The Weeeeeeedddddddd.!' That was a brain-lock moment."

NFL Legend James Harrison I'm The Next Dwayne Johnson ... I'm Acting Now

12/14/2018 12:20 AM PST


Hollywood sets are about to get a lot scarier ... because the most intimidating man in the history of the NFL is taking his terror to Tinseltown ... James Harrison says he wants to ACT.

We talked to the 2x Super Bowl champ, and he told us the plan has always been to get in front of the screen when football was over, and he knows the type of actor he wants to be.

"I kinda see myself as an action type of actor more along the lines of, you might have heard of him, some dude named Dwayne Johnson."

If you think it's ALL about the action, you're wrong. Harrison says he's got tons of range ... kinda like another dude you might be familiar with.

"I feel like I got the range of someone else you might have heard of ... Denzel."

Before you think he's just goofing, Harrison -- who's in L.A. filming an episode of CBS's hit show S.W.A.T. -- says he's been taking acting classes for a while, and is taking meetings with directors, writers, and a huge company by the name of Marvel.

He wouldn't be the first guy to make the switch ... former NFL running back Thomas Jones is making a REAL splash now, having been in big movies and the "Luke Cage" TV show, so James can do it too.

Plus, do you REALLY think any casting directors would have the balls to tell James no? We thought not.

LeSean McCoy Accuser Claims He Scrubbed Home with Bleach ... to Hide Evidence

12/13/2018 12:16 PM PST

LeSean McCoy has scrubbed down the home he owns in Georgia with BLEACH in an effort to conceal evidence in the home invasion case ... this according to one of the victims. 

Elizabeth Donald -- who was attacked during the July 10 home invasion -- has filed new court docs claiming the NFL star is going to great lengths to cover up any potential involvement he may have had in the robbery. 

As we previously reported, both Donald and LeSean's ex-girlfriend, Delicia Cordon, have publicly accused McCoy of sending a gun-wielding goon to the home to retrieve jewelry and other items. 

Donald and Cordon both claim they were pistol whipped by the gunman and sustained injuries

And, while no arrests have been made in the case, both women have filed lawsuits against the Buffalo Bills running back ... claiming he orchestrated the whole thing

Now, in new legal docs filed on Dec. 11 in Fulton County ... Donald claims McCoy is acting like a man with something to hide. 

"McCoy has now caused the residence to be scrubbed down with bleach and other cleaning agents in an egregious attempt to spoil any remaining evidence in the residence," she states in court docs. 

For his part, McCoy had adamantly denied any involvement in the incident and not been charged with a crime. 

Saquon Barkley Already Better Than Zeke & Gurley ... Says Victor Cruz

12/13/2018 11:16 AM PST

It's only been 13 games ... but Giants star rookie Saquon Barkley is ALREADY the best running back in the NFL -- so says Victor Cruz.

Of course, the ex-NY star is super biased ... dude still bleeds Giants blue -- but he tells us there's no doubt in his mind Saquon tops Ezekiel Elliott and Todd Gurley in the RB ranks.

"He's No. 1 in my opinion. He's done the most with less this year. So, he's a phenomenal player."

Cruz didn't stop there ... he says the Giants RB is HANDS DOWN the Rookie of the Year AND deserves a spot in the Pro Bowl.

We also asked Victor about Eli Manning ... and Cruz says he's still ride-or-die for the QB -- saying the team should roll with him AGAIN as their starter in 2019.

Eric Dickerson Rooting for Saquon Barkley to Break My Records? ... Hell No!!

12/13/2018 6:09 AM PST

Here's some real talk from Eric Dickerson ...

With Saquon Barkley getting super close to breaking some of his cherished NFL rookie rushing records, we asked E.D. if he's rooting for the NY Giants stud to take his #1 spot. 

The answer was about as honest as it gets ... 

"HELL NO!!!"

Don't get it twisted, Dickerson tells TMZ Sports he loves Barkley and thinks he's a great player -- but "You wanna keep them records!" 

Saquon has already racked up 1,753 total yards from scrimmage -- creeping on E.D.'s rookie record, 2,212. 

Barkley also has 12 games with 100 yards from scrimmage -- 1 game shy of tying Eric's rookie record (13). 

But, what about the old saying, "Records are made to be broken?"

"People who don't have records say that," Dickerson replied. 

"When you have records, you don't want 'em broken. When you get to my age, you want to hold on to them as long as you can!" 

One record Barkley probably won't touch is his rookie rushing record -- 1,808. Saquon only has 1,124 at the moment with only 3 games left in the regular season. 

He'd need to average 228 yards per game over the next 3 ... so, Eric can rest easy on that. 

Gisele Hints She Wants Brady To Retire ... 'I Haven't Been Very Successful'

12/12/2018 12:13 PM PST
Breaking News

Does Gisele want the G.O.A.T. to officially head out to pasture??

Sure seems like it ... 'cause Tom Brady's wife appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday and dropped a major hint that she's been trying to get the QB to hang up the spikes.

Ellen asked the legendary supermodel straight-up if her husband was planning on retirement ... and Gisele said, "You should talk with him about that. I haven't been very successful."

Ellen followed up with the obvious next question -- "Do you want him to retire?!?"

"I want him to do whatever makes him happy," Gisele said.

Sooo ... yes???

It would make sense ... Tom has made an effort to spend MUCH more off-season time with Gisele and the fam ... even saying recently he wouldn't host "Saturday Night Live" so he could be with them.

Of course, Brady is 41 now ... so the end of the road is coming, regardless -- but sure seems Gisele is trying to expedite that process.

Sorry, New England.

Camille Kostek Defends Gronk's Missed Tackle Give Him Another Chance!!

12/12/2018 11:21 AM PST

Rob Gronkowski missed the game-saving tackle in the Dolphins game on Sunday ... but his S.I. model GF tells TMZ Sports it was NOT a mistake havin' him on the field.

We got Camille Kostek out at the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year ceremony at The Beverly Hilton in L.A. ... when she explained why Bill Belichick should give Gronk more burn on defense.

"I don't play football, I don't make the rules -- I support whatever he does. So if he needs to be put at defense again, I say, 'Go for it, baby!!'"

Of course, Patriots fans were pissed ... and confused about why Gronk -- a 6'7" tight end -- was on defense in the first place for Kenyan Drake's miracle sprint.

But, Camille says her BF ain't one-dimensional -- and she knows her man will get it done if he's in the same spot again in the future.

"I mean, look what he does as a tight end. He doesn't just catch the ball and get in the end zone. He's blocking, he does it all. So, yeah, I think I can see him doing it again!"

As for the couple's future ... we had to ask if wedding bells are coming down the pipe ... and while Camille says not right now ... she definitely didn't say no to the idea down the road!!

Baker Mayfield & Fiancee Dinner Dates Auctioned Off Raise $96k for Charity!!

12/12/2018 9:16 AM PST
Exclusive Details

How much would you pay to grab dinner with one of the hottest young couples in sports??

For 3 lucky (and rich) Cleveland Browns fans ... we're told the answer is a whoppin' $32,000 each for a night out with Baker Mayfield and Emily Wilkinson ... and it's all for charity!!

The Browns stud and his fiancee were the hot item at the Providence House's Deck the House auction event on Tuesday night ... with their dinner date starting a fierce bidding war.

The original plan was to auction 1 dinner ... but when the price started to skyrocket, Baker agreed to 3 separate evenings out -- ultimately raising $96,000.

FYI -- the Providence House is a crisis nursery that protects at-risk children and families in crisis ... and the couple has been very passionate about the cause ... spending time with the kids at a recent visit a few weeks ago.

We're told Baker was the star of the night ... and even tried his hand at auctioning off some of the items.

On top of the dinner dates ... Baker's game-worn cleats went for another $14k!!

Bake also got in on the action ... bidding $9,250 to win a purple guitar autographed by PRINCE!!

No word on who's gonna pick up the tab at these dinner dates ... but we got a hunch.

Aaron Donald Claps Back At Rams Haters ... 'We'll Be Fine!'

12/12/2018 6:44 AM PST

Aaron Donald says if you're jumpin' off the Rams bandwagon after their ugly loss to the Bears ... you're gonna regret it -- 'cause the big DL tells TMZ Sports, "We'll bounce back!!!"

L.A. got punished in Chicago on Sunday night -- lookin' like a soft team afraid of the cold in a 15-6 loss -- and many are callin' the 11-2 Rams a fraud now.

But, when we got their superstar D-lineman at the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson Of The Year ceremony at The Beverly Hilton ... his message for L.A.'s haters was simple.

"We'll be fine. It's a learning experience. It ain't going to do nothing but make us better, make us stronger. We ain't worried about it. We'll bounce back!!!"

Donald's probably not wrong ... L.A. likely won't have to go anywhere other than the Coliseum or the Superdome in the playoffs -- which means no more chilly temps for the squad.

But, A.D. wasn't guaranteeing a win over Chicago if they rematch in Los Angeles, telling us, "We're going to see!"

BTW ... Donald also spoke with us about his quest to break Michael Strahan's sack record -- AND revealed what career he wants to chase when his football days end!!

Kiara Mia People Think I Ruined Garoppolo? ... 'I'm Flattered!'

12/12/2018 12:10 AM PST

Kiara Mia says there's no way in hell her date with Jimmy Garoppolo cursed the Niners QB ... but the porn star doesn't exactly mind the take, saying, "I'm flattered!"

Of course, Jimmy's season came to a catastrophic end just a few weeks after his famous night out with Kiara ... and some fans pegged her as the bad juju that caused his ACL tear.

But, Kiara says, for as much as she's honored that people think she has that kinda power -- she tells TMZ Sports it's just not possible.

"I'm impressed that people look at me as a God," Kiara says.

"Like, only God has the power to, like, control someone's journey in life. So, I'm flattered people think I have that much power in my life to control somebody's life!"

Kiara tells us she really hasn't been keeping up with Jimmy or his team -- we had to break the news to her that the Niners really suck -- but she says she's already moving on to a new squad.

"I'm Mexican and I'm from L.A., so I have to say the Raiders!"

Sooo ... Derek Carr, WYD???

Tennessee Titans Investigating Leonard Fournette's Racism Claims

12/11/2018 9:18 AM PST

The Tennessee Titans have launched an investigation into Leonard Fournette's allegations that a fan was shouting racial slurs at him during Thursday night's game at Nissan Stadium in Nashville ... sources tell TMZ Sports

We broke the story ... the Jacksonville Jaguars running back threatened to beat up a fan in the 4th quarter of his team's 30-9 loss in an incident caught on video

Fournette later told The Athletic the fan had been shouting racist insults like "c**n" and "servant" -- though none of those words can be heard on the video obtained by TMZ Sports. 

Now, sources tell us ... the team has launched an investigation to find out if other people seated in the area heard any of the alleged slurs. They're also working to identify the heckler so they can speak with him. 

We spoke with the person who shot the video -- who is NOT the heckler beefing with Fournette -- who told us he did not hear any racist language. 

The fan said he DID hear the fan hurling insults, but they were based on the score of the game. 

For example, when Fournette was asking the heckler for his age, we're told the guy responded, "I'm 30 to 9."
