Dario Saric looks miserable in Minnesota

Dario Saric looks miserable in Minnesota

We all watched Jimmy Butler’s smile beam across his face as he was introduced as a member of the 76ers today.

But how did things go at the introductory press conference for the three former Sixers in Minnesota?

Just look at Dario’s face.

Yesterday, we learned about the teary-eyed goodbye Saric had with Brett Brown when the trade was made, and today, we get this photo from the press conference. He looks miserable. Also, it’s not like we hunted for a bad photo, only to see him smiling moments later. This is the photo the Timberwolves chose to tweet out on their main account.

Here’s another look.

We’ve seen this before with Jahlil Okafor dropping the jersey and with Joel Embiid’s face on draft night. Both of those turned out to be non-stories, but what if Dario is truly upset to go from Philadelphia, where he moved to from another country, to Minnesota? 

Also, Robert Covington is having a little trouble removing the word “process” from his vocabulary.

While we’re looking forward to seeing Jimmy Butler take the court for the Sixers, some fans will have an eye on Minnesota to see how the former Sixers are doing. 

Make sure to circle Jan. 15 on your calendar for Minnesota’s only game in Philadelphia this season to see how the fans welcome back the trio.

Who knows what will happen.

Social media torches Eagles-Cowboys referees after awful offensive PI call

Social media torches Eagles-Cowboys referees after awful offensive PI call

We're so quick to yell at our TVs and pull out our smartphones to tweet outrage after a referee makes a call we deem outrageous. Oftentimes, it's an emotional reaction. Other times, it's not. This is one of those times.

Shortly after the Cowboys took a 23-16 late in the fourth quarter, the Eagles quickly responded when Carson Wentz hooked up with rookie tight end Dallas Goedert for what appeared to be a 75-yard game-tying touchdown catch.

Except the refs decided this was offensive pass interference:

That's not offensive pass interference. Goedert collided with Cowboys safety Jeff Heath, hit his head and performed a swim move to get around Heath. There appeared to be very little contact, certainly not enough to warrant a flag.

Ultimately, the Eagles ended up scoring on the drive and the outrage went all for naught as the game went to overtime. But still, to call this penalty at that point of the game just can't happen.

To the social media world we go.

Social media erupts with anger after refs rule a fumble in favor of Cowboys

Social media erupts with anger after refs rule a fumble in favor of Cowboys

Less than 10 seconds into the crucial matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, the refs made a ridiculous call that will likely have a huge hand in deciding who will win the game, and probably the NFC East.

If you didn’t see the play, here is the end where five Eagles surround the ball, but it's determined that no clear possession was gained.

Not only is this clearly a fumble but had the refs done their job right the first time, there’s no question who would have been awarded possession. Instead, the Cowboys kept the ball and everyone on Twitter lost their collective minds.

It's a long game — we’ll see if the Eagles can overcome this one.
