Wednesday's P.M Hot Clicks: Ashley Hart; the NFL According to Brandon Meriweather

Wednesday December 21st, 2016

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.

Odds & Ends

Americans will spend nearly $1,000 on Christmas gifts in 2016 (probably need a bigger tree) ... This Trekkie went a little overboard in decorating his home ... Chris Boswell hit with "random" drug test after hitting six FGs ... Duquesne basketball wore sick 1970s throwback uniforms the other night ... J.R. Smith is having surgery on a broken thumb.
