Neymar leads Brazil to Olympic gold in stunning fashion

10:18 AMWelp, we’re all done with the Olympics, kiddos. But not before we got in one more episode of Locker Room Lawyer — Rio version, specifically about swimmer Ryan Lochte, who is a liar. Check it out here.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has gotten his week off to a blistering start. My man kicked down the door first thing Monday morning by lobbing insults at MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, meanwhile his campaign manager du jour was just telling folks Sunday that he doesn’t do personal insults. This is all after he legit told a crowd of people that black people have nothing to lose by voting for him. On a more serious note, though, it does appear that the polls between Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton are tightening, according to FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver.

The further we get away from Prince’s death, the sadder the story becomes. Investigators are still looking into his death, but the details of his drug use are becoming very clear. And when a person with that much influence and money wants something, they get it. As for prescription drugs, it appears that Prince had a lot of them. An official told the Associated Press on Sunday that they found two dozen pills, counterfeit ones, no less, that contained fentanyl. AP‘s Amy Forliti reports.

Neymar is awesome. That just needs to be said. The 24-year-old Brazilian footballer put the nation on his back during the gold medal game against Germany and willed his team to its first men’s Olympic tournament win. He netted one during the first half on a beautiful free kick that opened the scoring. Then the match went to penalty kicks, the highest of drama. After a save, Neymar had the final kick to win the tournament. He did it. It was a genuinely great moment. VICE Sports‘ Aaron Gordon watched the game with three old Brazilian ladies.

Darryl Strawberry is scared for his friend Dwight Gooden. The two were subjects of the 30 for 30 film Doc & Darryl that chronicled how drugs derailed both of their careers in Major League Baseball. Now, Strawberry thinks that Gooden’s drug use has come back and the former phenom pitcher is in declining health because of his addictions. And not like, oh, this guy parties hard — Strawberry is concerned he may die any day. ESPN’s Adam Rubin details a story that hopefully has a better ending than many people involved think it will.

Locker Room Lawyer, Episode 6: Ryan Lochte

‘When the law gets there, you get missin’ as good as you can’

5:05 PMIn Friday’s edition of Locker Room Lawyer, Clinton Yates and Domonique Foxworth take the case of Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte to The Undefeated courtroom.

Last Sunday, Lochte was involved in a late-night incident at a Rio de Janeiro gas station with fellow Olympic swimmers Jimmy Feigen, Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger. The swimmers deemed it to be a robbery while Brazilian police said they vandalized the gas station.

After the incident, Lochte returned to the United States, though the other three swimmers were forced to remain in Brazil to cooperate with local authorities.

Did Lochte violate bro code by leaving his teammates behind when the law came knocking?

According to Domonique, the Locker Room Lawyer, as long as Lochte didn’t snitch, he didn’t violate bro code.

It’s worth noting that on Friday, Lochte apologized for his behavior surrounding Sunday’s incident. Below is the Instagram post with his full apology:

Locker Room Lawyer, Episode 5: NFL PED accusations

Should these four players comply with the league or stay quiet and risk suspension?

3:36 PMIn Wednesday’s edition of Locker Room Lawyer, Clinton Yates and Domonique Foxworth take the case of NFL players James Harrison, Clay Matthews, Julius Peppers and Mike Neal to The Undefeated courtroom.

In December 2015, Al-Jazeera America released a report titled The Dark Side: Secrets of the Sports Dopers, in which an Indiana pharmacist named Charlie Sly accused five NFL players — Harrison, Clay Matthews, Peppers, Neal and Peyton Manning — of using performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs). After the report was released, the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) came to the defense of the players and Sly has since recanted his statements.

But now, as the 2016 NFL season approaches, the league has called for the four active accused players (Manning is now retired) to cooperate with an investigation into the Al Jazeera report. If they don’t, the players will face discipline from the league, including suspension.

Domonique, who played in the league for seven seasons and then served as the president of the NFLPA, elected to take the case of the four players under investigation, stating that they have no obligation to cooperate by speaking up on the matter.

Heading into Wednesday, the Locker Room Lawyer has not lost a case. Can he continue his dominating streak in a case right up his alley of expertise?
