Some African American writers are instructing Beyonce that if she is going to have a butt that she should not shake it while preaching a serious message. Really? Well, to them I would say consider this: every time I see that butt I think that had a particular school of bigotry lurched in that particular butt's direction it might well be six feet under having had its full butt shaking potential annihilated. As James Brown once sang, "Shake ya ass, but watch yourself..."

Far from the best matchup in the NFL's International Series so far, the Dolphins looked toothless for the duration, despite the Jets' best efforts to give away the game in the closing minutes.

The choice of games for the 2015 International Series no doubt had its critics amongst the NFL UK community, with many hoping for trips to Wembley from the Colts, Packers, Broncos or Seahawks.
