This is brazen as hell, and it will be interesting to see how many of these actually are resold.

A day before Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, more than $40,000 worth of tickets to the game between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos were stolen from Hotel Nikko in San Francisco.

According to Holmes, police said four men entered a hotel conference room and stole the tickets.

Tickets for Super Bowl 50 reportedly ranged from $500 to $1,800, with club level seats going for $3,000.

Marshawn Lynch, Von Miller, Josh Norman Do XBOX Gaming Session on "Conan" (Video)

February 06, 2016

From beginning to end, this entire segment is hilarious. Conan began this tradition during last year’s Super Bowl of XBOX gaming sessions, and this year he’s invited Josh Norman and Von Miller to play "Doom."

Marshawn Lynch may have gotten Conan O’Brien’s hopes up when he said that he has street cred in Oakland, but these segments on Conan continue to get better and better. This time around, Conan invited Panthers' Josh Norman and Broncos' Von Miller to face off in a game of "Doom."

We highly encourage you to watch the entire thing, because this segment clearly wasn’t scripted:

Rapper Killer Mike Defends Cam Newton on Revolt TV (Video)

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Let's keep it real, the NFL has no problem with the media and critics riding Cam Newton because he loves to smile, dance and have fun during games.

It allows the focus to be taken off Peyton Manning’s possible link to HGH, or the embarrassing Deflategate scandal involving Tom Brady that is still ongoing amid the Super Bowl.

Newton is a black quarterback, one that a guy from the trap or another from the suburbs can be proud of. Young black males need to be taught that being confident is not wrong or some kind of sin, while carrying you far in life.

Killer Mike sat down with Revolt TV to dissect Newton, breaking down what makes the Heisman Trophy winner special.

Marshawn Lynch Responds to Retirement Question by Asking Photographer About His Bitch (Video)

February 04, 2016

Marshawn Lynch never disappoints.

The Seahawks star is not to big on the media, and it appears that TMZ is not going to be on the list of outlets to score his retirement announcement.

Asked by a photographer if he was coming back to the NFL next season, Lynch, in his strongest west coast tone, asked the poor guy a NSFW question about his girl.

Peep the video:

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

That was fast, but Johnny manziel, Colleen Crowley or authorities will definitely have to explain more.

The Dallas Police investigation into the January 30 incident between Johnny Manziel and girlfriend Colleen Crowley has been closed, with Manziel avoiding charges, amid claims from Crowley that Manziel “hit her several times" and also threatened to “kill himself.”

According to the police report, Manziel “struck Crowley several times," in a hotel room where they argued and on that drive home.

Manziel also reportedly chased Crowley through her apartment, where she escaped to a neighbors and 911 was called.

What this means for his future is anybody’s guess, but for now, he’s still a free man.

Johnny Manziel Responds to Allegations He Hit GF, Threatened To Kill Himself

February 04, 2016
Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

That was quick, and probably necessary at this point.

Johnny Manziel swiftly responded to claims made by Colleen Crowley in a police report that alleges the Browns quarterback “struck” his girlfriend several times, and then “threatening to kill” himself.

Manziel denied the report, ironically suggesting he may end his partying ways for now and concentrate on football.

Via TMZ:

When asked about the police report in which he allegedly threatened to kill himself during the dispute, Johnny denied that too … adding, “I’m completely stable. I’m safe and secure.”

It’s interesting … according to the police reports, as cops interviewed Colleen at her home she became irritated with the officer’s questions and “increasingly uncooperative.” She also refused to allow cops to photograph her alleged injuries.

Johnny added, “I have great things coming ahead” … though he didn’t expand on what those things are.

“I know I’ve been having fun but I just need to get my body right.”

“I’m 100% committed to playing football.”

It will be interesting to see how this plays out, with Crowley seeming suspect and Manziel having the full love and support of his home state and authorities.

This comes from the police report obtained by TMZ Sports:

Cops say Colleen described Johnny as being “on some kind of drugs.”

She was insistent he was NOT drunk.

Colleen told cops she was struck several times by Johnny — including a strike to her left ear.

She says Manziel “started laughing” and told her to “shut up or I’ll kill us both.”

According to the document, Colleen told cops … she had met up with Manziel at the Zaza Hotel in Dallas earlier in the evening with a bunch of friends … but left together in the same car.

They both left the hotel in Colleen’s vehicle. With Johnny at the wheel, the drove to Ft. Worth but argued in the car “shouting angrily.”

Colleen says Johnny struck her several times while he was driving.

When they reached her apartment in Ft. Worth, Colleen says she fled the apartment and went to a neighbor to seek help. Johnny fled on foot.

Cops say in the report they were unable to locate Johnny — so they launched a helicopter to to try to find him.

This would be the second time, on record, that Crowley alleged that Manziel put his hands on her and in a violent manner.

It was after dropped Crowley off that she allegedly told the Heisman Winner that “she hates him.” Manziel then allegedly told Crowley that he’s was going to go “kill himself.”
