The National Football League usually has its annual draft in New York City.

But the league is currently inviting cities to put up bids to see who is interested in hosting the event.

This week, the NFL invited Chicago, Los Angeles and New York to make their presentations to host, but no one emerged as the front-runner.

It has been reported that more than a dozen cities have shown interest in being a host in 2015. They include: Boston, Canton, Cleveland, Green Bay, Houston, Nashville, New Orleans, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

The NFL says it’ll chose a site sometime this summer.

Columbus Crew in a bad streak; playoffs slipping away

New Crew owner Anthony Precourt says he wants to get a good sense of the entire operation before making changes (megasportsnews.com photo)

For years, the Columbus Crew were always one of those teams in Major League Soccer that could be counted on to have a winning overall record, a winning home record, a cinch for the playoffs and a contender for the league championship.

The 2013 season hasn’t been anything near the abovementioned statements.

The Crew are in the midst of one their worst runs on the losing side in team history.

With last weekend’s loss at Houston, Columbus has dropped six of seven games. They are now in unfamiliar territory of eighth-place in the MLS’ Eastern Division. They have fallen 10 points out of the final playoff spot with 12 games left in the season.

The current 1-6 stretch is the worst since a 0-5-2 by the Crew in the disappointing 2006 season.

Recently, the team was sold by the Hunt Sports Corporation to Anthony Precourt.

The new owner told the media at his introductory press conference a few days ago that he will not make any quick decisions on anybody in the organization. He wants to get an overall assessment of the situation.

Head coach Robert Warzycha, who has been on the hot seat all season with the fans, is in the final year of his contract. Precourt did indicate that he would be meeting with general manager Mark McCullers, technical director Brian Bliss and Warzycha to see where they can improve the team.

Notre Dame leaving Big East for ACC; Football stays an Independent

To no one’s surprise, Notre Dame will be leaving the Big East Conference for the Atlantic Coast Conference in all sports but football. The ACC announced on Wednesday that the catholic university will play five football games every year against the league’s programs but will be a full member in all other sports.

The league also said that it is increasing its exit fees for the conference’s schools to three times the annual operating budget, which would be more than $50 million.

With this development, the Big East seems to be in trouble as far as a basketball conference goes.

They’ve lost Syracuse and Pittsburgh to the ACC, and West Virginia to the Big 12, now a national brand in Notre Dame and the retirement of Jim Calhoun at Connecticut, basketball seems to have taken a hit. Only Louisville, Cincinnati, Villanova and Georgetown are left.

But the Big East has added Memphis, Temple, SMU, Houston and Central Florida. Of that group, only Memphis and Temple have strong basketball programs.
