James Graham hints at coaching role at the Dragons after fairytale finish to playing career

Rugby league legend James Graham admits he still can’t believe the circumstances in which he finished his career a week on from St Helens’ miraculous Super League grand final victory.

Graham farewelled rugby league after St Helens defeated Wigan in a thrilling match last week that saw Jack Welsby score a last-second try off a deflected field goal. 

For 35-year-old Graham it was the perfect end to a storied career that started all the way back in 2003 for St. Helens. 

Overall, he amassed 474 matches of rugby league across his time at St. Helens, Canterbury, St. George and playing for Great Britain and England.

Atlantic Records President of Promotion Andrea Ganis Looks Back, and Ahead, at Her Legendary Career

Click here to read the full article.

Few music industry vets approach the level of royalty in the radio world that Andrea Ganis, Variety‘s Hitbreaker of the Year, inhabits. She rose through the ranks at Atlantic Records until they had to create a new title for her: president of promotion.

“Atlantic was a powerhouse then as it is now, so I got to work legendary acts throughout my career,” says the New York native. “My early years began with the Rolling Stones, Bette Midler, Abba, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Genesis, Phil Collins, U2, Stevie Nicks and so many more, including songs that I forgot I promoted until I hear them in a store and point up and say, ‘I worked that record!’”

That streak has continued over the years, particularly with the remarkably consistent current regime of co-chairs Craig Kallman and Julie Greenwald, who have steered the ship since 2004.

Trump’s potential purge of career employees casts pall across federal government

Federal career employees across the Trump administration are fearful of losing their job protections and potentially their jobs, as agencies begin to implement a recent executive order signed by President Donald Trump.

A majority of career staff will be redesignated into a new category that strips them of protections afforded to civil servants and makes them easier to be removed.

The Office of Management and Budget inside the White House has been one of the most aggressive in making the change. An October executive order created a new classification for federal employees serving in “confidential, policy-determining, policy-making, or policy-advocating positions.” These employees typically do not change over during a presidential transition.

Experts say the reclassification could potentially leave tens of thousands of federal employees vulnerable to being fired without cause.

“This is an attempt to sabotage

Former Maverick Andrew Bogut retires after 15-year pro career

Andrew Bogut is calling quits on his bid for an Olympic medal and has decided to retire after 15 years in professional basketball.

The 36-year-old Australian had earlier cited back and ankle injuries, the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent postponement of the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo as potential reasons to retire. On Tuesday he made it official.

Bogut, a 2005 No. 1 draft pick by Milwaukee and who won an NBA championship with the Golden State Warriors in 2015, had been planning to retire after playing for Australia at the Tokyo Games. Those games have been delayed until July 2021.

“I just can’t physically and mentally get to 2021 with the way the body has been,” Bogut said on his “Rogue Bogues” podcast. “I mean, I could, on a lot of painkillers and with a lot of physical and mental anguish, but it’s just not worth it at this point in

WATCH: Trace McSorley delivers first TD pass of career late vs. Steelers

Fresh off the bench (and the reserve/COVID-19 list) to replace the struggling Robert Griffin III in the fourth quarter against the undefeated Steelers, Trace McSorley threw his first career touchdown pass to Marquise Brown to give the Ravens a glimmer of hope. 

That hope was short-lived, as the defense failed to get off the field and Pittsburgh ran out the remaining time on the clock. Still, that doesn’t take away from what was a beautifully executed pass-and-catch for six points in Baltimore’s favor.

McSorley found a streaking “Hollywood” Brown on the right side of the field, and after a series of stutter steps and 84 yards later, the lead was shrunk to six points before Justin Tucker kicked home the extra-point attempt. 

McSorley and Griffin played in place of Lamar Jackson, who was among the many Ravens placed

Alex Smith ‘impressed’ with how Ben Roethlisberger developed throughout career

When the Washington Football Team and the Pittsburgh Steelers kickoff in Week 13, the Monday afternoon/early-evening clash will be a battle of two quarterbacks whose respective ages are 36 and 38.

Both Washington passer Alex Smith and Steelers signal-caller Ben Roethlisberger have been starting quarterbacks in the NFL for nearly a decade and a half, and even longer than that in Big Ben’s case. 

As for any player who’s lasted that long in the NFL, Roethlisberger’s style of play has drastically changed since he was a rookie. So has Smith’s, of course.

With the two veteran quarterbacks set to meet in a crucial December matchup, Smith told local reporters on Wednesday just how impressed he’s been with how Roethlisberger has changed the way he plays the QB position over the years.

“I think the thing that has impressed me so much through the arch of his career is how much
