Terrell Suggs is no fan of the New England Patriots, which isn't any great secret after his "have fun in the Pro Bowl" comments were made public in January. But Suggs took his feelings a step further in a radio interview with WEEI in Boston on Wednesday. According to Suggs, "31 other teams hate the New England Patriots." That's a bold statement that would literally make New England the most hated team in the NFL. Is Suggs correct in his assessment? It's hard to accurately gauge Suggs' statement. However, New England does have some degree of an "evil empire" feel around the NFL. The anti-Patriots sentiment stems mostly from jealousy of New England's success and the no-nonsense personality of coach Bill Belichick. (ESPN.com) Comment
Part of "Joba being Joba" means that Joba Chamberlain might fill some silence with noise. So it came as no surprise Joba used a public forum after his first spring outing to say something he himself admitted would cause a spark: That he could start or close. ... What was more interesting was the way in which Joe Girardi and Brian Cashman dismissed it, treating Chamberlain more like a child and nuisance than anything else. ... You know what that screams to me? The Yankees have Joba Fatigue. I think they see him as a constant risk physically and verbally, and they will try to drain 60-70 high-level appearances out of him in 2013 then let all the drama that has played around this pitcher exit through free agency.

Before he was suspended Wednesday, Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert had an apology to make -- to his mother. "My mom was a little upset," Hibbert said. "She said I should have walked away. It's unfortunate it happened. I watched the video and I saw there was a little kid that ran up out of his seat when all that happened. I apologize to the fans that were sitting courtside. We're a team that loves the fans and we don't want to scare them away." Hibbert was ejected for picking up two technicals after getting into a shoving match with Warriors big man David Lee. Hibbert also threw Warriors point guard Stephen Curry to the side twice. Lee also took a one-game suspension for the brawl. (USA TODAY Sports) Comment
