I think BP dropped the sponsorship. Haven't heard it be called that all week.

They couldn't handle the sponsorship. They were getting overshadowed by the CUPPPPPPPPP

Jahlil Okafor has Illinois among his final eight potential destinations. Excellent.

Sounds like Suarez may be off to Madrid. Would hate to lose him but if he can bring back $50 mil, it may be worth it. Could turn that in to 2 or 3 top flight players. Aspas and Toure in with Papadopolous quickly behind. Glad to see LFC not buying any English players for once.

John Tortorella was defiant in stating that the New York Rangers didn't take a step back when they were knocked out of the Stanley Cup playoffs in the second round. General manager Glen Sather thought otherwise and fired the combative coach on Wednesday.

Yeah...when you're forced to sell like that I doubt they get more than 30.

Suarez isn't getting anywhere near 50mil. Plus he "reason" for leaving is pathetic.

He can't take the how the English media treated him? Right because he did nothing to deserve the treatment right? Biting an opponent, suspended for racists remarkes and often carded for diving.

Don't give me the he isn't English nonsense either, plenty of non English players are well respected in the Premier League.

They aren't forced to sell though. They won't sell him for less than $45 mil, watch.

All the reports say Falcao is going to Monaco for 45, no way Suarez goes for the same price.

I see him going for $50 mil. I think Suarez if he leaves will get about the same. Maybe a little less. They are similar players and Suarez is a litlte younger. I don't think Suarez leaves this summer. I don't think LFC wants to sell him and won't unless their price is met.

But Suarez doesn't have Falcao's scoring rate and Suarez comes with baggage.

Any team wanting Suarez just points to his current suspension still hanging over his head in England and his other instances and knocks a few million of the price tag.

They are pretty damn close and Suarez does it with dog crap around him. Falcao had 28 goals and 1 assists in 34 La Liga this year, Suarez had 23 goals and 6 assists in 33 EPL games. EPL is a much deeper and more competitive league.
