Patriots Cut Cam Newton

Wow, did not expect this! Newton was on reasonably modest wages AFAIK so I guess Belichick just isn't suffering anti-vaxx fools.

Canada leaves software field over umpire decision but only for a few minutes, some issue about the Canadian pitcher. Still, the linked clip is strange viewing.

The Copa America pitches were uniformly terrible, Beaverboard. Probably hard to avoid when you decide like 10 days ahead of the start to host the tournament in a new country.

Also, Gareth Southgate, what a maroon!
