Beto O’Rourke lit up the 2020 US presidential election race last week by throwing his hat into the ring. The Democrat shot to fame last year when he ran for the US Senate and only narrowly lost out to his rival in the deeply Republican state of Texas. His failure in that election was counter-intuitively his making on the national political scene. O’Rourke ran a well-funded and organised campaign that showcased a heady cocktail impassioned beliefs and eloquence which lent itself perfectly to the social media generation. Plaudits duly followed.

Brown had the elite-level clout to exercise the necessary leverage, and here he stands, victorious. So, too, do the Raiders, who landed a four-time all-pro wideout for third- and fifth-round draft picks, just five months … [Read more...] about Antonio Brown: Hero or villain, WR won by forcing trade from Steelers
