The week is halfway over and it was a slow sports day with only six NBA games and three NHL games. Off the hardwood and ice however, Netflix made a major announcement, Major League Baseball continued its impressive streak of labor piece, a couple dumb Dolphins’ fans got in trouble, and Jeff Fisher pulled a Jeff Fisher.

Netflix is now downloadable!


For a while now Netflix users have been on their hands and knees beginning the streaming giant to follow up on a major rumor: Netflix would be accessible off the internet through downloads.

Well, that dream is now coming true.

The announcement Wednesday means Netflix subscribers will be able to download select TV shows and movies to Apple and Android devices so they can watch them while not connected to the internet. To access this feature, users need to update their iOS and Android apps to use the download option.

It’s important to note however, it’s not available for EVERYTHING on Netflix. Instead, it’s only select shows and movies, most of which are Netflix originals. img_0168netflix_downloadNetflix released an official statement as well about the big change. It included the following:

“Many of your favorite streaming series and movies are already available for download, with more on the way, so there is plenty of content available for those times when you are offline. For example, Orange is The New Black, Narcos and The Crown are available for download today.”

A group of Dolphins’ fans got in trouble

Dolphins fans fighting

I will never understand why grown men and women fight each other at sporting events.

Anyway, a couple Miami Dolphins’ season ticket holders fought a couple San Francisco 49ers fans during the Dolphins win on Sunday in Miami. The end result? The season ticket holders were removed from their seats, kicked out of the stadium, had their season tickets removed, and the cherry on top… are now banned from Hard Rock Stadium.

“We conducted an immediate internal review of the situation and have identified the season ticket members who were involved in the incident,” the team said in a written statement. “We work hard to remind fans that we want this to be a safe environment and this type of behavior and conduct is not acceptable.”

In a shock to nobody, the fight ended up going viral!

Jeff Fisher is silly

NFL: St. Louis Rams at Arizona Cardinals

The Jeff Fisher led Los Angeles Rams are slated to visit the New England Patriots this Sunday at 1:00 pm EST. When the Rams and Patriots battle, Danny Woodhead will be nowhere near Gillette Stadium.

Why is that? Well, Woodhead is currently on the San Diego Chargers’ IR. Despite that, Fisher was preparing for the Rams’ game as if Woodhead was on the Patriots still.

“Well, they’re all different,” Fisher said. “I have a place in my heart for LeGarrette, because I gave him a start, and I have great respect for him. He’s a big back, and he’s hard to get down. And as they rotate through, different guys play in different situations, and they do a good job with it. He knows where the ball’s going to go, and the guys are very, very disciplined.

“I’ve been impressed with Brandon and what he’s done out of the backfield. You’ve got to deal with him, in addition to Danny (Woodhead). You’ve got playmakers all around, so we have to play sound defense.”

Oh Jeff Fisher… He started off strong, but then went downhill from there. Brandon and Danny are definitely not the backs that work along with Blount. That would be James White and Dion Lewis. And the last running back named Danny the Patriots had was Danny Woodhead, who hasn’t played for them since 2012 and is currently on injured reserve with San Diego.

Quick Hits

snoop1– Snoop Dogg or Lion or whatever animal he goes by now was born in Southern California. It’s been well publicized that Snoop is a big football fan. As a result, when the Los Angeles Rams moved back to SoCal, it wasn’t surprising to see Snoop in LA Rams gear and at games.

Well, Snoop isn’t the only Rams fan who’s disappointed with the 4-7 record. Actually, Snoop is a little more than disappointed.

– Iman Shumpert became the first major NBA star post-Trump election to say if his team wins it all, he won’t go to the White House.

I understand people’s stance on Trump. I can’t get caught up in the racial, sexist bulls–t he’s got going on. That’s his personal thing, ya dig? But I just don’t think he can make anything shake like that. He not finna start no civil war out here. I do think he’s crazy—straight up. I think he did that stuff to get people to think he’s willing to shake it up. But did I vote for him? No. The other stuff that comes with him, I can’t get with. But now that he’s here, I’m not finna drag my feet. I gotta work here, at least until the offseason, if I wanna go get a crib in the Islands.

Will you go to Trump’s White House if the Cavs win the championship again this year?

I’m not going to the White House.

– Speaking of the NBA, here’s some great news. Between the 15th and 16th picks of the 2014 NBA Draft, the NBA drafted 7’1″ Isaiah Austin out of Baylor. The top NBA draft prospect was suffering from Marfan Syndrome, thus stopping him from playing in the NBA. In a great bit of news, he’s been cleared to play basketball again.

– Terrelle Pryor has made a terrific transition from quarterback to wide receiver. Despite already being a great wideout, Pryor thinks he can be even better.

“Am I happy about the little success I’m having? Yeah. I mean that’s everybody. You’d be stupid for somebody to sit up here and say they don’t care about them being successful or doing something well. But I feel there’s so much more that I could do well that I feel like I’m part of the reason we’re 0-12. That’s how I think of it. That’s what pushes me every day to try to have a perfect game. … That’s what I’m chasing.”

– Stop saying Chip Kelly is going back to Oregon because he probably isn’t.

– Warner Brothers is trying to get their new movies onto DVD and into homes faster than they currently do. Let’s all celebrate like Harry Potter did when he got all those letters (minus the tackle from Uncle Vernon)!

– To Brooklyn Nets’ special assistant Will Weaver, former Philadelphia 76ers General Manager Sam Hinkie is the weirdest dude he’s ever met.

“He’d say the nicest things about me that didn’t feel like compliments. He had this ability to assess without dragging himself into an emotional state,” Weaver told SI.

“That’s a guy I want to work for someday,” Weaver started with before adding, “he’s the weirdest dude I’ve ever met.”

– The Houston Board of Regents Chairman is really mad at the Big 12 for you know, Tom Herman and the lack of Big 12 expansion.

“It’s disappointing that the University of Texas — who wants to open a campus in Houston and said they would never do anything to harm the University of Houston, with all the football coaches in America, who said that they would stand up for us to get into the Big 12 and then didn’t even vote for us when they met with the commissioner and all the schools — had to come take our little football coach,” Fertitta told ‘The Michael Berry Show”.

– If the Navy Midshipmen football team beats Temple this weekend, there could be bowl chaos.

“I don’t want to be un-American,” one bowl official told ESPN, “but nearly everyone in the bowl industry, quite frankly, is rooting against Navy.”
