The head of the Major League Baseball Players Association, Michael Weiner, said the union is “not interested” in protecting players who have overwhelming evidence against them of using performance-enhancing drugs.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had the best-selling NFL jersey from April through June. Second-year QBs Russell Wilson and Robert Griffin III ranked right behind Kaepernick. Andrew Luck did not crack the Top 10 due to what inside sources say was “fewer jerseys sold.”

New York Giants safety Will Hill has been suspended for four games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. Hill said he took attention-deficit drug Adderall.

To recap: Will Hill must chill for taking pill to keep still.
