Dear BadJocks Readers:
After playing fantasy football last season (and winning my league) I discovered there was a TON of information out there for players, but it wasn’t really organized anywhere. Everyone from ESPN to NFL.com to CBS Sports has their own leagues, experts and opinions, but what if you wanted to hear a little from everyone each day? Nobody seems to share or play nice in this arena. It’s almost like they don’t want you to know the other sites exist.
Or maybe someone could point out if there was a similar theme being pushed by many voices (Tebow will replace Sanchez by game 3)? That’s the point of the Fantasy Football Daily Feed: to look at all the noise out there, synthesize it down to something that fills you up, but doesn’t overwhelm you.
So, if you play fantasy football and would like to check the site out, please do.
More trouble at the Olympic Games in London: Badminton officials have thrown out eight players from four teams after it appears they intentionally lost their preliminary matches. Why? Apparently the Chinese #1 was so dominant, they wanted to lose to get a better draw in the tournament, not get eliminated early, and at least play for a silver or bronze medal. Link includes video clip that shows the pathetic attempt to lose the matches. – CBS Sports
Speaking of Olympic video: NBC viewers got an eyeful from an underwater camera during the USA/Spain women’s water polo match this week when an American player grabbed her opponents swimsuit and, well, let’s say things popped out momentarily. Link includes video clip and is slightly not safe for work, although it is an underwater camera shot – Daily Mail
Also at the Olympics: Australian rower Joshua “I’ll Have Another” Booth, 21, was arrested at 3:30 am, the morning of his 8 man team event, for a drunken incident involving damage to a storefront. What, an Australian who drinks? That’s almost as shocking as the badminton scandal . . . – The Independent

Wisconsin running back Montee Ball, a Heisman Trophy finalist last season, was jumped but five guys in Madison, WI and beaten. He suffered a concussion and some facial injuries. And gang of angry Michigan fans perhaps? Who says only bad things happen outside of bars at 2:15 in the morning? – ESPN

Tommy Rees suspended for Notre Dame season opener – The suspension follows an incident on May 3 in which he and another starter were arrested during a police break-up of an off-campus party. Big deal: the game is against Navy and if the Irish lose this one with or without Rees it will be a very long season for Coach Brian Kelly. CBS Sports
