Donald Trump serious about buying Buffalo Bills

Donald TrumpDonald Trump has emerged as one of the potential buyers of the Buffalo Bills, and the well known TV personality and businessman says he is serious about buying the team.

“I’m going to give it a heavy shot,” Trump told The Buffalo News’ Tim Graham on Monday. “I would love to do it, and if I can do it I’m keeping it in Buffalo.”

Skeptics feel Trump is only expressing interest in the team for publicity purposes so he can stay relevant, but he denies that is the case.

Trump, who once owned the New Jersey Generals of the USFL, says one of the big reasons why the Bills appeal to him is their proximity to his home base in Manhattan. He also says he would do his best to keep the team in western New York, which is important to the fans who are worried about potential buyers moving the team to a city like Toronto.

One person who will also likely be in the mix is Jon Bon Jovi. He has been working NFL ownership circles for a while and could be a front man for Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, which has obvious ties to Toronto.

NFC executive on Jadeveon Clowney: He’s lazy and spoiled

Jadeveon ClowneyJadeveon Clowney once looked like a supreme NFL draft prospect and surefire top pick, but there are now some mixed feelings about him.

Most people agree that he has absurd talent as a defensive lineman, but the concerns about his work ethic are troubling to many.

NJ.com has been having three different NFL scouts/personnel executives give some evaluations on players leading up to the draft, and on Sunday they reviewed the defensive linemen. One of the three execs was critical of Clowney.

“He’s spoiled, and he’s lazy,’’ the NFC personnel man told NJ.com. “He’s never worked hard a day in his life, now all of a sudden you’re going to give him a bunch of money and expect him to work hard. I don’t see it.”

“Oh, he’s going to be a high pick,’’ the personnel man said. “Some team will fall in love with him. But wait and see, just wait and see. I just don’t think you can count on him. I’m betting the under on him.’’

Keep in mind that the same evaluator had a negative overall outlook of the position, calling it the “worst group” he’s seen in a long time. So maybe he was just down on everyone as a whole. But his opinion on Clowney is not exactly unique.

We’ve heard some compare Clowney to Randy Moss in terms of the talent but questionable work ethic/motivation. Even Clowney’s South Carolina coach, Steve Spurrier, describe his former player’s work ethic as only “OK.” That was not a good sign.

Some people may view the criticisms as unfair, but when this many people start expressing the same concerns, you have to figure there’s a good reason for it. The warning signs are definitely there.

LeSean McCoy: My 2-year-old son is better than Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow PatriotsYou can add Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy to the long list of current and former athletes who do not think very highly of Tim Tebow’s football ability. Tebow may have a great personality and know how to make a National Championship Game prediction, but very few are surprised that he is unemployed. McCoy certainly believes he should remain a free agent.

TMZ caught up with Shady at LAX over the weekend and asked him who he thought is the best NFL player who is not signed to a contract. The first example the reporter gave was Tebow.

“Tim Tebow?” McCoy said with a look of disgust. “My son is 2. I’ll take my son over Tim Tebow.”

McCoy went on to name former teammate Vince Young before settling on Chris Johnson, who was officially released by the Tennessee Titans just over a week ago.

Come on, man. Weren’t we supposed to stop dogging on Tebow after he made that hilarious Super Bowl commercial dogging on himself? Don’t kick a good Christian while he’s down.

Police: Aldon Smith ‘appeared as if he had been drinking’

Aldon Smith mug shotSan Francisco 49ers defensive star Aldon Smith was detained at Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday after he allegedly yelled “bomb” in a terminal. He was booked into Los Angeles jail on false report of a bomb threat.

According to CSNBayArea.com’s Matt Maiocco, LAX Police Sgt. Karla Ortiz said Smith was not administered a blood-alcohol test because his arrest was not alcohol related. However, she said Smith appeared to have been drinking at some point during the day.

“He was not what we considered to be intoxicated, but he appeared as if he had been drinking earlier in the day,” Ortiz explained.

The police may not have been concerned about whether Smith was drinking or not, but the 49ers should be. Smith took a voluntary leave of absence last year to enter rehab for his substance abuse issues after he was arrested on suspicion of DUI and possession of pills and marijuana. Given his laundry list of off-the-field issues, I’m sure the Niners would prefer that Smith not drink at all.

As for the arrest, it was initially reported that Smith was randomly selected for a secondary screening while going through airport security. Ortiz later added that the 24-year-old was going through the screening when he asked if he would be searched further. He was told that would not be necessary and allegedly gave the following response.

“Why not? I have a bomb.”

Niners general manager Trent Baalke released a statement on Smith’s arrest Sunday evening.

“We are disappointed to learn of the incident today involving Aldon Smith,” Baalke said. “As this is a pending legal matter and we are still gathering the pertinent facts, we will have no further comment.”

How many strikes does this guy get? The 49ers have done all they can to keep Smith, who is one of the premier pass rushers in the game, but their hands may finally be tied. It’s going to reflect poorly on the organization if they keep letting him get away with stuff.

Aldon Smith detained at airport, allegedly yelled bomb in terminal

Aldon Smith mug shotSan Francisco 49ers premier pass rusher Aldon Smith was reportedly detained at Los Angeles International Airport Sunday after allegedly yelling “bomb” in a terminal.

Smith’s name has not yet been released, but an LAPD spokesman confirmed someone was arrested and being transported to booking. The LAPD issued this statement to the San Jose Mercury News about the incident. They say Smith was randomly selected for secondary screening and became upset.

“The suspect then became belligerent and uncooperative with the process and with the TSA agent, making a comment indicating that he was in possession of a bomb before proceeding towards the gate area.

“Los Angeles Airport Police made contact with him at the gate and he was positively identified as the person in question. Once again the male subject became uncooperative and he was detained and taken into custody by Airport Police and is currently being transported to LAPD for booking.”

An eyewitness told the San Jose Mercury News that Smith was at Gate 6 of Terminal 1 when confronted by several police, who then led him away from the Southwest gate.

Smith was described as “agitated” over the situation and supposedly said he was doing nothing wrong.

Smith took a leave of absence from the 49ers last season to enter rehab after a DUI where he had marijuana and pills in his car.

Terrell Owens reportedly owes $250K in unpaid taxes

Terrell-Owens-cryingIt sounds like Terrell Owens still has some serious financial problems, despite what his publicist may want us to believe. Owens reportedly owes a quarter of a million dollars in unpaid taxes from two years ago.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, the federal government claims TO owes $244,391.52 in unpaid income taxes for the 2012 tax year. Owens signed a contract with the Seattle Seahawks in 2012 but was cut before the season and made just $4,300. As TMZ noted, he must have had some other sources of income to rack up a tax bill of that magnitude.

This is not the first time TO has had tax issues. He reportedly paid off a $430,000 tax lien last year that he had racked up from 2005 to 2009.

But that’s not all. Owens’ estranged wife Rachel Snider — whom he shared a solid several days of marriage with — said last month that she is going after alimony payments. Snider had previously accused TO of only marrying her so he could obtain a $2 million loan for a home purchase.

Less than two years ago, Owens was ordered to work at Goodwill after he missed child support payments. All this stuff can’t be made up, right?
