D-Von Dudley Addresses Health Issues That Kept Him From WWE TV: "It's Been Rough ..."

WWE Hall Of Fame legend D-Von Dudley (Devon Hughes) is dealing with some health issues these days.

The tag-team wrestling legend has health issues that were bad enough that they kept him from appearing at the most recent set of WWE television shows at the ThunderDome in Orlando, Florida.

Dudley, 48, works behind-the-scenes for WWE as a producer.

The pro wrestling legend addressed his health issues during a recent installment of his "Table Talk" podcast.

"I’ve had some health issues but I’m hanging in there," he said during the recent episode. "I miss you guys."

He added, "Hopefully I’ll be back soon. I gotta see what the doctors say but, it’s been a little rough, but I’ve been hanging in there, doing what I can."

We will keep you posted here at eWrestling.com as updates continue to surface regarding the health condition of pro wrestling legend D-Von Dudley.

Full-capacity crowds in 2021? Fauci says not so fast

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and the country’s foremost authority on the COVID-19 pandemic, told Yahoo Sports on Monday that it’s unlikely NBA teams can host full-capacity crowds during the 2020-21 season.

Fauci, in a phone interview, said unrestricted capacities at sports stadiums will be among “the last thing[s] that you're gonna see” as the United States pushes toward the end of the pandemic in 2021.

When asked about the possibility of full, 20,000-seat NBA arenas in July, when the postseason is scheduled to conclude, Fauci said: “Ah, I think that'll be cutting it close.”

The return of tightly-packed crowds will depend on a variety of factors, public health experts say, from human behavior to uptake of soon-to-be-approved COVID-19 vaccines.

“We're gonna be vaccinating the highest-priority people [from] the end of December through January, February, March,” Fauci said. “By the time you get to the general public, the people who'll be going to the basketball games, who don't have any underlying conditions, that's gonna be starting the end of April, May, June. So it probably will be well into the end of the summer before you can really feel comfortable [with full sports stadiums] – if a lot of people get vaccinated. I don't think we're going to be that normal in July. I think it probably would be by the end of the summer.”

When asked about full NFL stadiums in September, Fauci said: “Oh, that's possible. I think that's possible.”

The return to normalcy

Public health officials, however, qualify all future projections with several caveats. The timeline of a return to normalcy, which will double as a return to sports normalcy, will depend on whether the preliminary results of vaccine trials hold up in final data; and whether vaccine distribution goes as planned; and whether the American public is willing to get vaccinated. Surveys have suggested that roughly half of U.S. adults might not be – though more recent research indicates skepticism could be waning.

“Having an efficacious vaccine in and of itself doesn't get us out of this difficult situation we're in,” Fauci said. “But an efficacious vaccine that's widely utilized could get us to a point where we're really approaching normality.”

“We could get there by the end of the summer, and as we get into the fall of next year,” Fauci continued. But “if 50% of the people say, ‘You know, I don't want to get vaccinated,’ then it's gonna take considerably longer than that.”

There is no agreed-upon target, no golden number, no specific percentage of the U.S. population that must be vaccinated for normalcy to return. Fauci pegged it at “somewhere between 75 and 85 percent.” Other experts expect it to be much lower. And Fauci clarified that a failure to clear that threshold would not mean that normalcy will never return – “it just would take longer” to get there, he said, “that's all.”

The only thing public health experts concur on is that the virus won’t just disappear. And that the end, therefore, will be slow. “It's not like we're gonna turn off the light, and the virus is gone, and the world can go back,” Dr. Tom Farley, Philadelphia’s health commissioner, told Yahoo Sports. “It's going to have a very long tail to it.”

The reopening of sporting events and other large gatherings will therefore be gradual. “It will be a continued dial-back, hopefully, on things like capacities,” Dr. Allison Arwady, Chicago’s public health commissioner, told Yahoo Sports. She and other experts envisioned a cautious, step-by-step easing of restrictions sometime in 2021. Sports teams would, for example, ramp up to 25% capacity; then spend a few weeks monitoring data trends; and only then, if case counts, transmission rates and other indicators hold relatively steady, would they ramp up again.

“The general approach is, you release a set of restrictions, and then see if that works,” Farley said. “Because there's so much guesswork. So if you go four weeks, and there's no increase in virus activity, well then you can go and do the next set.”

Different rules for different teams

COVID-adjusted stadium capacities, in most cases, will depend on city, county and state governments, which have the authority to limit gathering sizes. Leagues and teams may institute their own rules, but also must adhere to local guidelines. In some cases, like Florida’s, full sports stadiums are already permissible – but the state’s three NFL teams — the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars — have all independently limited capacity significantly. In many other cases, including New York and California, no fans are permitted whatsoever.

Professional leagues have taken different approaches to operating within those local guidelines. The NFL has largely left the devising of protocols to individual teams. With Texas allowing stadiums to operate at 50% capacity, the Dallas Cowboys welcomed 30,048 fans to AT&T Stadium on Thanksgiving. The San Francisco 49ers, meanwhile, aren’t even allowed to play at Levi’s Stadium.

NBA teams are also restricted to varying degrees. Some, like the Los Angeles Lakers, have announced that home games “will be held without fans until further notice.” Others, like the Utah Jazz, will open their arena to “1,500 [fans] in the lower bowl only and limited seating on the suite level” when the season begins on Dec. 22.

The NBA, though, has also distributed a memo to teams outlining a set of “uniform league-wide standards” for fan attendance. They include requirements for “pre-arrival or upon-arrival symptom and exposure surveys”; for mask-wearing at all times “except when actively eating or drinking”; for physical distancing, both between ticket parties and between fans and the court; and even for testing.

“Fans seated within 30 feet of the court,” the document reads, “would be required to undergo and return a negative coronavirus test that is either (1) a PCR or equivalent test sampled no more than two days prior to the game tip off; or (2) an NBA-approved rapid test … sampled the day of the game.”

The memo, which was obtained by Yahoo Sports, does not cap attendance by percentage or number. It does, however, detail protocols for concessions and concourse areas. And, crucially, it states: “Because of the rapidly evolving coronavirus situation, we expect that these rules may be modified during the season in order to ensure continued alignment with the current public health situation, scientific knowledge about the virus, and technologies that could enable more fans to safely attend NBA games.”

As the pandemic abates sometime in 2021, every aspect of the sports fan experience will evolve with it. The progression to full stadiums will be a major piece of that evolution, but not the only one. Some teams have invested in technology – whether for testing, or streamlined entry plans, or contactless concessions – that could stick around.

And even when local governments do allow stadiums to fill, especially indoor ones – even when life has returned to normal – “I think we should be wearing masks as long as there is any of this [virus] around,” Fauci said. “Because it's an easy thing to do.”

Athletes across sports world mock Jake Paul-Nate Robinson 'boxing' match

It’s hard to imagine any observers expected a serious boxing match between YouTube star Jake Paul and former NBA slam dunk champion Nate Robinson.

And yet, what ensued Saturday night at Staples Center still inspired disbelief, concern and, above all, guffaws across social media. Robinson fought as if someone had just given him the gist of the strategy of boxing in the hours before. He repeatedly charged Paul to the point their bodies collided, and was rewarded with a steady diet of counterpunches for his effort.

Robinson was knocked down no fewer than three times, and the final one saw him land on the floor out cold.

The fight was drawing mockery on social media by the end of the first round, but the knockout punch was the true starter’s pistol for a Twitter frenzy. That even included Robinson’s fellow NBA players, like Stephen Curry:

Paul Pierce, watching at home, saw his excitement for Robinson turn into ... something else.

Nick Young — yes, Nick Young — was disavowing Robinson’s performance as representative of the NBA.

And then there was the rest of the sports world:

Just about the only people treating the thing as serious were actual boxers, trainers and promoters, who lamented what Paul and Robinson had reduced their sport to:

Nate Robinson responds on Instagram

Robinson seemed to take it well — or at least as well as he could have.

He took to Instagram after the bout to ensure everyone that he was in fact fine after suffering the knockout blow.

Martin Murray: I thought COVID-19 had ruined my career

Veteran boxer Martin Murray believed that coronavirus had ruined his career before he got the chance to fight Billy Joe Saunders.

The WBO super middleweight champion arranged a fight with Murray after failing to get his desired match-up with Canelo Alvarez on terms he was willing to entertain.

Murray is now 38, and after failing to convert any of his previous title fights into a win, he is under no illusion that Saunders will be an easy opponent.

“It’s a difficult fight, like all my big fights,” he said.

“Billy Joe offers me something different. He’s kind of like [Sergio] Martinez, obviously younger and slicker.

“I’ve been training for it. I’m ready for it. I’m confident. All the little setbacks I’ve had in the past have been building to this. I feel like it’s my time.”

Despite his age, Murray believes that he is fit enough to compete. Asked if he believes the age difference is important, he said, “I don’t. I look after myself between fights.

“I do a lot of training, eat right. I’m a young 38. I know there’s a big win in me.

“Everyone’s writing me off. There’s no pressure on me.  But I know that I rise to the big occasions. You’ll see the best of me.”

Murray suggested that his rival had an easier route to a title than his own career had given him.

“He’s not fought the opposition I’ve had. If I’d had ought the people he’s had fought, I’d have a world title. I’ve done it the hard way.”

Murray also admitted that the coronavirus pandemic had led him to believe that his career may have been brought to a premature end. 

“I thought, ‘It’s ruined my career.’” he said.

“I almost called it a day. I thought it could finish my career. I’ve always believed in myself, there’s always been hope, and I thought that it was going to finish my career, and it’s ended up making it.

“It would be nice to finish the year on a high, and for my career I’ve worked for a world title and I’ve been in some lonely places.

“I’d never have believed it but here we are.”

The Saunders-Murray fight is Friday, on Sky Sports in the U.K. and on DAZN in most other parts of the world, including the U.S. Click here to learn more about DAZN in your region.

How to watch Seattle Seahawks vs Philadelphia Eagles Live stream free on ESPN, Reddit, VPN ...

After a rough 1-3 stretch, the Seahawks seemed to right the ship in Week 11 with a critical win over the Cardinals. If Russell Wilson and co. are back on track, it’s tough to see an Eagles team, that’s been a disaster for most of the season, standing in their way. Carson Wentz could always rediscover his 2018 form and make the Eagles dangerous again, but we’ve come this far into the season without much indication of that.

NFL blackouts: International Game Pass vs. U.S. Game Pass

What’s the difference between watching NFL Game Pass in Germany, Australia, Canada, or the U.S.? NFL Game Pass is available both inside and outside the States. However, there are key differences every fan needs to know:

The U.S. NFL Game Pass does not offer live streaming of regular-season or postseason games. It provides streams of out-of-market preseason games, on-demand replays of every regular-season game, and the NFL Films archive. There are no blackouts of regular-season games (because none are shown live at all). A seven-day free trial is available.

In most other markets, such as Mexico and most EU countries, the international NFL Game Pass offers all 256 regular-season games plus the NFL Playoffs and Super Bowl. Users trying to watch the NFL in the UK or Ireland are subject to blackouts on some games, and for viewers who want to stream the NFL in Canada, Game Pass is available exclusively through DAZN.

Most international Game Pass subscribers get access to NFL RedZone, the NFL Network, and all NFL Films programming. There’s a seven-day free trial available.

How to watch NFL Game Pass In the UK

In a word, no. Regional broadcasting rights in the UK and the Republic of Ireland mean certain games are subject to blackout restrictions. This applies even if a subscriber from the UK or Ireland is in another part of the EU. Existing EU Portability Regulations require UK and Ireland blackout restrictions to apply no matter where in the EU the subscriber is.

How to watch Live Stream NFL In Europe

EU viewers who subscribe to NFL Game Pass from most locations other than the UK or Ireland should have access to all games live, although limited blackouts may apply if such users try to watch from the UK or Ireland.

Where is the cheapest location to get NFL international Game Pass?

NFL international Game Pass prices vary from region to region, but Asia Pacific locations tend to offer the lowest prices. For information about specific countries, contact ExpressVPN Support. Subscription refunds are valid up to seven days from the purchase date. Free trial refunds are valid up to three days after the trial ends. More details can be found on the NFL Digital Care site.

Which devices can I watch NFL international Game Pass on?

NFL Game Pass works on the following devices. To set up ExpressVPN on your device, follow the corresponding link below:

iOS 11+

Android 6.0+

Apple TV

Amazon Fire TV

Android TV

Roku

Xbox

PS4

What’s the difference between NFL Game Pass and NFL Sunday Ticket?

NFL Game Pass is the NFL’s streaming service. It is different from NFL Sunday Ticket, which is exclusive to AT&T TV Now.

NFL Game Pass comes in two flavors. The domestic Game Pass only shows out-of-market preseason games, regular-season game replays, and the full range of NFL Films. The international Game Pass shows every live regular season and playoff game, including the Super Bowl. Read more about the nuances of NFL Game Pass.

NFL Sunday Ticket is only available to U.S. with a valid service address. Sunday Ticket shows out-of-market games only and excludes select international games. In particular, games broadcast by your local Fox or CBS affiliate will not be available for streaming.

NFL Sunday Ticket starts at 73.50 USD/month for four months. If you live in the U.S. and don’t mind missing a portion of the games, NFL Sunday Ticket might be worth considering. The international version of NFL Game Pass costs at least 125 USD/season but gives you access to every game and a wide range of extras.

Other Top 2020 Week 12 NFL Games

Early Game of the Week – Tennessee Titans at Indianapolis Colts [Nov. 29, 1:00 p.m. ET]

The Titans and Colts are both coming off dramatic overtime wins, and this matchup should be a heck of a dogfight for the top of the AFC South. The Colts handled Tennessee by a 17-point margin in Week 10, but it’s fair to expect a closer game between teams with equal records. The health of Philip Rivers will be critical as the 38-year-old was hobbled by a toe injury last week.

Sunday Night Football – Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers [Nov. 29, 8:20 p.m. ET]

This rivalry is steeped in history, but the gap between the two teams in the present is stark. Although the Bears jumped out to a 5-1 start, it’s been hard going for them ever since considering their offense has been unable to support their stout defense. Nick Foles doesn’t look like the answer for Chicago, and it would be shocking to see the Bears escape Lambeau Field with a win.

Monday Night Football – Seattle Seahawks at Philadelphia Eagles [Nov. 30, 8:15 p.m. ET]

After a rough 1-3 stretch, the Seahawks seemed to right the ship in Week 11 with a critical win over the Cardinals. If Russell Wilson and co. are back on track, it’s tough to see an Eagles team, that’s been a disaster for most of the season, standing in their way. Carson Wentz could always rediscover his 2018 form and make the Eagles dangerous again, but we’ve come this far into the season without much indication of that.

2020-21 NFL award races 

MVP: Right now, this looks like a three-man race. Patrick Mahomes has the strongest case as the league leader in passing yards and the owner of a ridiculous 27:2 touchdown to interception ratio. Russell Wilson’s strong performance last week put him back into the conversation, and he still leads the NFL in touchdown passes. He also has an extremely easy schedule over the next four weeks (PHI, NYG, NYJ, WAS) that could see him light up the scoreboard. Aaron Rodgers is the top dog in passer rating and should get some credit for excelling despite a dearth of elite receiving threats.

Preseason prediction: Patrick Mahomes (QB, Kansas City Chiefs)

Offensive Player of the Year: Dalvin Cook may have cooled off slightly in recent weeks, but he’s in the clear lead for this award. He leads the league in touchdowns (14) despite the fact he’s missed time due to injury, and also sits atop the yards from scrimmage leaderboard. Cook has been nothing short of dominant working with a passing offense that doesn’t make his life easier.

Preseason prediction: Christian McCaffrey (RB, Carolina Panthers)

Defensive Player of the Year: A few strong weeks have vaulted T.J. Watt into the top spot in this category. His nine sacks are just half a sack behind league leader Trey Hendrickson, but his 30 quarterback hits are first in the league by a mile, and he’s one off the league lead in tackles for loss (14), demonstrating tremendous value both defending the run and rushing the passer.

Preseason prediction: Aaron Donald (DT, Los Angeles Rams)

Offensive Rookie of the Year: Joe Burrow’s season is over, which puts Jusin Herbert in command here. The Los Angeles Chargers quarterback has put up 22 passing touchdowns against just six interceptions and has also contributed 20.8 yards per game on the ground. Other names to watch are Jacksonville Jaguars running back James Robinson—who ranks third in the league in rushing—and wide receiver Justin Jefferson of the Minnesota Vikings.

Preseason prediction: Joe Burrow (QB, Cincinnati Bengals)

Defensive Rookie of the Year: Baltimore Ravens linebacker Patrick Queen has probably made the most balanced defensive contribution of any rookie. Along with his 70 tackles, he’s also got two sacks, two forced fumbles, and a pair of fumble recoveries — including one he returned 53 yards for a touchdown in Week 5. Now that Washington Football Team pass rusher Chase Young is healthy again, he could challenge for this crown with a late-season surge.

Preseason prediction: Isaiah Simmons (LB, Arizona Cardinals)

Comeback Player of the Year: Our preseason pick of Ben Roethlisberger is looking pretty good right now as the 38-year-old is putting up rock-solid passing numbers across the board— even if he’s not pushing the ball down the field like he used to. It’s hard to go against the quarterback for the only undefeated team in the league. Alex Smith is a sentimental favorite after returning from a horrific leg injury, but his performance doesn’t match Roethlisberger’s.

Preseason prediction: Ben Roethlisberger (QB, Pittsburgh Steelers)

Coach of the Year: This favorite for this award fluctuates wildly week-to-week, but right now Mike Tomlin of the Steelers is in a good spot. His team is the last one to stay out of the loss column, even though they’ve had to deal with some scheduling confusion due to the Titans’ COVID-19 outbreak. Tomlin deserves a lot of credit for keeping his club on an even keel, and putting together a heck of a game plan for Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens in Week 8.

Preseason prediction: Kliff Kingsbury (Arizona Cardinals)

Who’s making Super Bowl LV?

We’re more than halfway through the season, and the true contenders are beginning to emerge. The Kansas City Chiefs look primed to defend their crown thanks to an offense that somehow got even better with the added dimension brought by their improved rushing attack. The Chiefs defense only needs to be respectable for this team to roll over its opponents, and even if it comes down to a shootout they are well equipped to win those games.

In the second tier of contenders are teams like the Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Each of these clubs is helmed by a veteran quarterback who’s won at least one Super Bowl before. What’s more, all three offenses look exceedingly strong as we pass midseason. The Steelers and Buccaneers are especially dangerous because they have elite defenses to match. The Baltimore Ravens also aren’t going anywhere, but their decisive Week 3 loss to the Chiefs raises questions about their ability to topple the reigning champs. The New Orleans Saints deserve mention thanks to their 8-2 record, but with the uncertainty surrounding Drew Brees’s health, they’re a difficult team to project.

There are also a few dark horses in the field, like the Buffalo Bills, who’ve seen their previously-erratic quarterback Josh Allen take the next step; the defense-first Indianapolis Colts; and the Tennessee Titans, who were the story of last year’s playoffs. Ryan Tannehill is beginning to make the case that he’s an elite quarterback after all his mediocre years in Miami, and Derrick Henry is downright special. It would also be unwise to discount whoever comes out of the NFC West, whether it’s the Los Angeles Rams, Seattle Seahawks, or Arizona Cardinals. The winner of that division of death will have proven themselves many times over.

Evander Holyfield could be Mike Tyson’s next fight after naming price for trilogy

Mike Tyson reacts after receiving a split draw against Roy Jones Jr (Getty)

Mike Tyson could fight Evander Holyfield for a third time in his next fight after battling to a draw against Roy Jones Jr in his comeback last weekend.

The exhibition, which lasted the full eight, two-minute rounds, saw Tyson and Jones Jr accept a draw at Staples Center.

And Tyson, who has worked himself back into shape after rediscovering his love for the sport, is sure to continue fighting, despite being 54 years old.

The Baddest Man On The Planet confirmed his intent to continue fighting: “Of course I’ll do this again. I’m content with the draw because what really mattered was entertaining the fans.”

Tyson accepted a $7.5 million (£6.7m) purse for last weekend’s action, but a trilogy against the Real Deal would see him earn much more.

Holyfield is demanding at least $25m (£22.4m) to get back into the ring with Tyson.

Given Tyson would likely command parity at least with his long-standing rival, who has two victories over Iron Mike.

The second win of course came via disqualification, after Tyson took out a chunk of his ear with a desperate bite in 1997.

"It definitely wasn't me," Holyfield told the I Am Athlete podcast. "I wasn't getting in the ring for less than $25 million.

"I beat him twice. I felt it was wrong for me to have to ask him to fight me. I don't know (if he's scared). I would never ask a person that.

"If they called me to fight in two days, I'd be there to fight in two days."

More funds will likely be required to pay for the undercard, with YouTube star Jake Paul commanding a solid payday with a second-round knockout of former NBA player Nate Robinson.

Colby Covington calls out LeBron James after YouTuber Jake Paul KOs former NBA star

LeBron James and Colby Covington
LeBron James and Colby Covington

UFC welterweight contender Colby Covington has never been one to hold his tongue. That is particularly true when it comes to politics – he's a long time support of President Donald Trump – and calling out other professional athletes that he derides for being "woke."

Taking advantage of the flare up around Mike Tyson's comeback fight in an exhibition with Roy Jones, Jr., Covington again took a shot at NBA great LeBron James.

"Heard they finally scraped Nate Robinson's carcass off the Staples Center floor. I'd make LeBron James eat the canvas in half the amount of time. Everyone knows current NBA players are the softest and most privileged athletes on the planet."

Colby Covington on Twitter

https://twitter.com/ColbyCovMMA/status/1333449138357358592?s=20

YouTube celebrity Jake Paul knocked out Nate Robinson as part of the Tyson vs. Jones undercard. Robinson is a former NBA player whose highlights include winning the NBA Slam Dunk Contest three times.

Paul knocked him down several times in the bout, finishing the fight with a punch that sent Robinson crashing face first into the canvas in the second round.

Having seen what Paul did to Robinson incited Covington to take his latest shot at James. The NBA great is a four-time champion (most recently with the L.A. Lakers in 2020), a four-time NBA finals MVP, and a four-time NBA league MVP.

Covington took aim at James and other NBA players in September after several of them spoke up and sat out in a protest again racial injustice and police brutality. Recently campaigning for Trump in the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election, Covington has also been an outspoken opponent of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Who's getting cropped out of AFC playoff picture?

The Las Vegas Raiders picked a very bad day to have a very bad day.

This is a team that has reached the postseason once in the past 18 years, a team that had an inside edge on the seventh and final playoff spot in the AFC. And yet, at the exact moment they needed to win, against an opponent in Atlanta they should have woodshedded, the Raiders turned in a historically inept performance, and fumbled away exactly what they needed the most: any margin for error.

We’re nearing the final stretch of the NFL season, and while we’re not at the elimination-game stage of the proceedings, we’re within sight. If a team isn’t taking advantage of favorable matchups — like being a 3.5-point favorite on the road — then it’s going to be watching the playoffs on TV like the rest of us.

The new seven-team playoff format is doing exactly what it’s supposed to, open the door for more teams to jump in the pool. The stocked AFC, in particular, is still going to send a couple very good teams home.

How loaded is the AFC? The Browns — the Browns! — would slot in right behind the first-place Saints in the NFC. The chum fighting for the final playoff spot in the NFC (Chicago, San Francisco, Minnesota) would’ve been forgotten weeks ago in the AFC.

In other words: no more room for bad days.

If this were golf, we’d say the cut line is currently at seven wins. Unlike golf, there’s a maximum number of contestants who’ll get into this particular club. At the moment, four teams sit on, or within a game, of the cut line; only two will make it in. (This assumes the fifth-seeded Browns at 8-3 don’t collapse and the 10th-seeded Patriots at 5-6 don’t catch fire, neither of which is a bet-the-mortgage assumption.)

Let’s run down our challengers, in order of playoff ranking:

Key games remaining: Las Vegas (Week 16), Buffalo (Week 17)

Outlook: The Dolphins have a rough run ahead, with Kansas City also on the slate, and a somehow resurgent New England still burbling around a couple games back. The Dolphins have to beat Vegas to hold onto a wild-card spot, but if things break their way over the next few weeks, that season finale against Buffalo (8-3) could be for a division championship. It’d be just like Bill Belichick to ruin Miami’s season with a Week 15 upset, though.

Key games remaining: Las Vegas (Week 14), Houston (Weeks 13 and 15)

Outlook: The AFC South is so tight that the Colts went from division leader to seventh seed with a single loss Sunday to Tennessee. Unfortunately for the Colts, there are no more dates remaining with the Titans. So the Colts need to win the winnable games (we’re penciling them in for a W against Jacksonville in the season finale, and a loss against Pittsburgh wouldn’t kill them). This is a take-care-of-your-business schedule.

Key games remaining: Pittsburgh (Week 12), Cleveland (Week 14)

Outlook: On paper (or whatever), the Ravens ought to sail into the playoffs, with four all-but-guaranteed wins still on the schedule, plus those two divisional matchups above. If this were 2019, you’d say the Ravens could go 5-of-6, or even sweep. But this is 2020, and the COVID-ridden Ravens facility is as good a metaphor for this year as any. Baltimore has the ability to fight its way into the playoffs. Does it have the personnel?

Key games remaining: Indianapolis (Week 14), Miami (Week 16)

Outlook: Though a division championship is out of reach — the Raiders ain’t catching the Chiefs — Las Vegas has the scheduling benefit of being able to focus on picking off the teams above it in the wild-card hunt. Until Sunday, you’d have said this was a team that could run the table. But glaring deficiencies like the Raiders showed against Atlanta could add another year to that playoff drought.

The prediction here is that Baltimore and Indianapolis will end up on the high side and Miami and Las Vegas will miss out. Given the levels of over- and underachievement at play in the middle of the AFC this season, no two-team combination of those four would be a surprise.

The reward for that seventh spot is an opening-weekend matchup against the Chiefs or Steelers, so teams won’t have much time to celebrate. But hey, a berth is a berth. Even a blowout at the hands of Patrick Mahomes or Ben Roethlisberger beats the alternative.

The Raiders' playoff hopes are tumbling to the turf. (David John Griffin/Getty Images)

The Young Bucks Recall Hot Topic Trying To Contact WWE About Signing Them To A T-Shirt Deal

On a recent episode of the Talk Is Jericho podcast, The Young Bucks, Matt and Nick Jackson, were on to discuss their new book "Killing The Business: From Backyards To The Big Leagues". Chris Jericho asked The Bucks more about how their deal with Hot Topic came together. They noted that their rise came at the same time as Pro Wrestling Tees, and they noted that Being The Elite and Bullet Club were also big helps in their popularity.

"Our shirts, they got popular off of Pro Wrestling Tees basically. That's where everybody picked them up," Matt noted. "We grew with them. We were one of the first five wrestlers to open up a shop with Ryan Barkan at Pro Wrestling Tees. We got really good at designing shirts because at that point, we weren't afraid to try things, because if people hate it, they don't buy it. There's nothing in stock. There's no loss.

"So we started really experimenting with funny things and great ideas, designs that maybe I wouldn't print up 1000, maybe I'll get stuck with 999. Any time we would say a thing or do a thing, we would have a shirt the next day, and you could never do that in the t-shirt business. It would take weeks to get a shirt, and here it is, I would say something on a Saturday or have a viral video, and by Sunday, I have a new shirt. That's what changed the business for us, and that's what got our shirts everywhere.

"And we started our YouTube show, and that helped a lot too because we would promote our shirts on the YouTube show and say, 'hey, they're available now.' And we would noticeably see how many we would sell when we would release an episode on Being The Elite," Nick recalled. "It was just crazy... We had a platform for everyone to see not just at this indie where 400 would see us. So, that changed the game, was YouTube. That helped tremendously.

"It obviously help that Bullet Club just went nuts. Everyone wanted the Bullet Club t-shirt. We were a part of that, and that blew up like crazy."

That popularity led to almost everyone wearing a Young Bucks or Bullet Club shirt. The Young Bucks said that people at Hot Topic saw that, but they first went to WWE to ask about putting those shirts in their stores. They talked about how popular the shirts became and how the initial run of shirts led to more merchandise being sold.

"There's a WrestleMania where we are the peak of Young Buck popularity," Matt recalled. "Bullet Club shirts are everywhere all weekend, and the buyers, it was Joe and Taffy, they were at the show and all they saw was Bullet Club, Young Bucks [and] Kenny Omega.

"You know how WrestleMania is - it's a weekend of just events," Nick added. "So they went to a bunch of the events and they kept seeing these Young Bucks t-shirts, Bullet Club t-shirts.

"They were just blown away, and they're like, these are the shirts we need at Hot Topic," Matt said. "No offense to all these other shirts, this is what I've seen the most of.

"They contacted WWE," Nick revealed. "They said, 'We want The Young Bucks t-shirts and the Bullet Club t-shirts,' and they go, 'Uh, they don't work for us. Go find someone else.'

"So they get in touch with Ryan," Matt continues. "Ryan tells him, 'Yeah, I work with these guys,' and Ryan got with me. And I talked to Hot Topic, and they said, 'We would like to put some of your shirts in our stores.' 'Absolutely.' So we made a deal to get Young Bucks stuff in, and Ryan, who worked with New Japan, he got a licensing deal to get the Bullet Club stuff in. They were just going to start with Bullet Club stuff and Young Bucks stuff, and they were going to try it in a couple of the shops.

"It wasn't many, just to see what it would be like, and the eleventh hour, they decided, you know what, we're gonna throw Kenny's in there too because we want the three. So we started with the three, and I don't remember the exact number of stores, but they put them out. They said they'd never seen anything like it, they were sold out immediately. So within, I want to say 24 hours, Hot Topic already reached out to me and they're like, we're going to every story in North America. We're like, 'oh my God.'"

Streaming service DAZN enters the ring in Australia

Sports streaming services beware – there’s a new contender looking to take the title.

DAZN – pronounced ‘Dazone’ – is a live and on-demand sports streaming service based in the UK that primarily focusses on boxing fights, but has its eyes set on other sports and competitions from around the world to offer customers a solid one-two combo.

Founded in 2015, the British service made its way to the ring in multiple countries, with Australia next to be added to the list, with sports fans able to sign up as of December 1, although subscription costs and the full range of content available won’t be known until its official launch.

DAZN Anthony Joshua

However, the content that is known to be on DAZN may get a few boxing fans keen, with the streaming service broadcasting the following fights:

  • Ryan ‘King’ Garcia Vs. Luke ‘Cool Hands’ Campbell – December 5
  • Anthony Joshua Vs. Kubrat Pulev – December 12

Each fight is expected to play host to additional content across DAZN, including interviews, match previews and analysis as well as undercard fights, with more information likely to be released once the platform has gone live.

How can I watch DAZN?

According to the DAZN Australia website, DAZN will be available across multiple brands of Smart TVs, set-top boxes, streaming sticks, smartphones, tablets and gaming consoles, although the full list isn’t available at the time of writing. However, with the website claiming “Big Fights. Any Device.” viewers can expect to be able to tune in anywhere for some boxing action. A DAZN app is also available to download for free on both iOS and Android operating systems, although you’ll likely need an account to make use of the app.

When it comes to what other content will be available, and how much viewers will have to shell out in terms of subscribing to the service, it looks like DAZN are aiming to get in before the final bell to take it to current heavyweight Kayo and newcomer Stan Sports.

Regardless of whether you’re a boxing fan or just a fan of sports in general, DAZN may be well worth keeping an eye on as it looks to launch in Australia on December 1.
