Wednesday's P.M Hot Clicks feature the lovely Ashley Hart and the musings of Brandon Meriweather
The NFL According to Brandon Meriweather
Didn't think Brandon Meriweather would be atop Hot Clicks in late December did you? Meriweather hasn't played in the NFL since 2015 but he did an interesting booze-themed radio interview on Wednesday. First, in response to Michael Floyd's disturbing DUI video, he said that every NFL player "has got a fall guy". Second, he said players would get "dead drunk" before the Pro Bowl. And lastly, former Patriots' teammate Matt Light told an amazing story about tricking Meriweather into giving his bar tab to Bill Belichick.
Boogie & Sherman
DeMarcus Cousins and Richard Sherman are drying the ire of many this week. First, Sherman had a sideline meltdown over the Seahawks' offensive playcalling then he flipped out on a reporter, saying he'll ruin his career and revoke media credentials. Sure, the cornerback did apologize but not before pissing off a lot of people. As for Boogie, he scored 55 points against Portland on Tuesday night but the biggest story was his temper tantrum after getting ejected. Although officials reversed it (which they should not have), he still went off during a "poor me" postgame interview. Meyers Leonard said he deserved it.
Fans Dominated 2016
From nudity and dancing to flipping off players and throwing crap on the playing surface, fans made headlines hundreds of times in 2016. Here's an amazing recap of the best/worst fan behavior stories from the year.
