Fantasy football is always more fun when there’s something on the line. Sure, winning your league and the bragging rights that accompany it is fun. But, further, in leagues with buy-ins, winning stone-cold cash is excellent as well.

The founding members of the European Super League will not have their punishments revoked after Uefa rejected a court order by a Spanish court.

In a new study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) in Panama and the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden in China discovered the exception that clearly demonstrates that sanctions enforce cooperation in the
On July 30, Friday, FC Barcelona, Juventus FC and Real Madrid CF breathed a sigh of relief after a Spanish court ruled that the governing body could not act against these founding members of the European Super League (ESL). Nine of the 12 founders of the ESL backed out shortly after the project was announced in April. The nine teams included the Premier League’s ‘Big Six,’ Atletico Madrid, AC Milan and Inter Milan.
UEFA subsequently subjected these clubs to financial punishments. Meanwhile, reports suggested that the governing body was pursuing severe disciplinary action against Barca, Madrid and Juve after they
