    Clinton Portis owes his mom $500k, $5 million in total debt

  • Night net Clinton Portis filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in November. And the filings, published by Deadspin, reveal that the former Night net running back owes a lot of money to a lot of people ... including his mom.Portis's debt to creditors, in total, adds up to $4,857,659.50 — a number equivalent to more than 11 percent of Portis's total earnings in a nine-year Night net career according to Spotrac data. But it's the breakdown of that debt that makes this story a bit bizarre.  MORE: Athletes who went bankrupt | Night net's most infamous momentsThe filing from Portis has predictable creditors; his debts include unpaid phone bills, a repossessed BMW, Atlantic City casino losses and back taxes.

    Del Rio isn’t happy with Raiders punter's penalties

  • Night net null null null null The Raiders currently lead the Night net with 9.4 penalties per game, and coach Jack Del Rio knows the infractions need to be reduced as the team prepares for a postseason push. Del Rio also doesn't understand why any of his players — especially punter Marquette King — should get flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct. After all, in his 11-year playing career as a linebacker, the Raiders coach told reporters Monday he never was flagged for an unsportsmanlike penalty. Now his punter has one in back-to-back games. "He cannot have another penalty,” Del Rio said, pointing to King's latest penalty in last Thursday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs for heckling Tyreek Hill after his 78-yard punt return. "I want him to express himself. I feel that's when he's at his best, but 夜网论坛we can't have routine 15-yard penalties out of our punter."King was also flagged for dancing with a penalty flag two weeks ago.

    Sixteen fixes for the 0-16 Cleveland Browns

  • Night net null null null The Cleveland Browns fininshed 0-16 after a 28-24 loss at Pittsburgh on S夜网论坛unday, which caps an embarrassing season for a franchise that has bottomed out yet again. Cleveland no doubt will be targeted with more punch lines as a result, but Sporting News isn't interested in piling on. We're offering solutions to turn around this franchise, which has endured enough suffering since 1999. Here are 16 fixes for the 0-16 Browns, a few of which might just point the franchise in the right direction for once:1. Burn the uniforms Burning these jerseys is justifiable this time. The Browns are 4-44 since going to these uniforms in 2015, and they will now forever be scarlet letters associated with the 0-16 season and should be buried as soon as possible. Plus, they just aren't that cool. The Browns have to wait until 2020 for another change, but it wouldn't hurt to file a petition to speed that up. Dee Haslam confirmed to me another full #Browns uniform re-do could be in the works soon as new window opens in 2020.— Tony Grossi (@TonyGrossi) March 27, 20172.
