For a Price, a Chance to Go Beyond a Premier League Curtain

Today 06:06 GMT

The introduction of the Tunnel Club has met resistance in some quarters — not just from those fans who were displaced to make room for a new bank of plush leather seats, directly behind the two substitutes’ benches, to allow club members to view the game, but also from sections of the broader City fan base, who see it as yet further proof of the creep of gentrification in the Premier League.

Roger Goodell Said to Be in Line for New Five-Year N.F.L. Contract

Tuesday 22:46 GMT

Commissioner Roger Goodell may get a lot of criticism for the way he has handled issues related to domestic violence, player celebrations and the investigation into so-called Deflategate, but by and large, the N.F.L.’s 32 team owners think he is doing a great job.

The commissioner has used that policy to suspend star players like New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, over an accusation that footballs were tampered with during a playoff game in 2015, and Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, whose former girlfriend accused him of assault.
