KAPALUA, Hawaii – A new year tends to bring new perspective, new beginnings, new goals and hopes and, with that, a sense of leaving some things behind, too.

PGA Tour to experiment with interviews during the round

KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) — The PGA Tour might be taking another step toward connecting players with television viewers. Several years ago, it asked players in contention on the weekend to allow for TV interviews before their rounds, usually as they were arriving or leaving the practice range.

6:44 PM ET Greg WyshynskiESPN SOUTH BEND, Ind. — It wasn’t what Dallas Stars president Jim Lites said that irked NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, but how he said it. Last Friday, Lites lit into his two star players, forwards Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin. He told The Athletic that Seguin and Benn have been “f—ing horses—; I don’t know how else to put it.” He added that the sentiment was shared by owner Tom Gaglardi, and continued: “What nobody says is what is completely obvious to me: We are getting…

Detroit Lions won’t retain offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter

ALLEN PARK, Mich. — The Detroit Lions announced they won’t renew the contract of offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter after the offense sputtered throughout head coach Matt Patricia’s first season with the franchise.

The Redskins are completely fine claiming Reuben Foster but not signing the player…

Indian players meet Australia Prime Minister Scott Morrison at his official residence, the Kirribilli House, in Sydney on New Year’s Day. (Twitter/PTI) With its grand central harbour and the wild celebrations of a year just departed, Sydney has the feel of a city of departures and farewells for touring cricket teams. Often the last stop of a dead rubber, the city has historically denoted a painful journey’s end. So rather than feeling regaled by the dazzling fireworks on New Year’s Eve or marvelling at the magnificent beaches, they latch themselves…
