Mashup: Harrison rips 'classless' Favre

On Tuesday, Brett Favre did a radio interview in Atlanta and said he was surprised that it took his replacement in Green Bay, Aaron Rodgers, three years to win a Super Bowl title considering how talented the Packers have been since Favre's departure. NBC football analyst (and former Patriot) Rodney Harrison responded by calling Favre "classless" and "immature." Added Harrison of Favre: "Everything he's accomplished in his career is now diminished. … He's about himself. He's about nothing else but himself."

Speaking of feuds, University of Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari tossed another backhanded insult at old friend Rick Pitino this week when he acted as though Pitino's Louisville program did not exist. Said Calipari of the fans' allegiances in his state: "It's Kentucky, throughout this whole state, and that's what makes this unique."

Report: Sox dismiss 1B coach Johnson

According to ESPN.com, Red Sox first base coach Ron Johnson has been dismissed. Johnson, 55, spent the last two years as the Sox' first base coach after spending the previous 10 years as a manager in the Sox' farm system, including a stretch from 2005-09 as the manager in Triple-A Pawtucket.

Johnson missed much of the 2010 season, his first as a big league coach, while at home after his daughter suffered an injury that ultimately required a leg to be amputated. However, he returned to the Sox this year.

At the conclusion of the season, Red Sox GM Theo Epstein said that the employment status of the members of the 2011 coaching staff remained unresolved, given that the team would have to hire a new manager. However, while the team could not tell any coaches with certainty that they would be retained, it is now...

Cromartie: 'I hope they boo me again'

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Antonio Cromartie was asked following Jets practice on Wednesday if he thinks he'll be booed when he takes the field at Gillette Stadium on Sunday.

"I hope I get booed again, honestly." said Cromartie. "I hope I get booed again. They're not my fans. My fans are in New York." 

Cromartie famously called Brady an "ass----" days before last January's playoff game between the Jets and Patriots. Cromartie said on Wednesday that he still feels the same about Brady, but did call the quarterback "the best in the league."
