Paige Spiranac trolls LIV Golf players over PGA Tour lawsuit

Published

on

Paige Spiranac is weighing in on the new antitrust lawsuit filed by 11 LIV Golf players against the PGA Tour amid the ongoing battle between leagues.

On Wednesday, Phil Mickelson, Bryson DeChambeau and nine of their peers from LIV sued the PGA Tour for suspending them from playing the tour as long as they were part of the controversial Saudi-backed league. As news of the suit began to spread across the internet, Spiranac addressed the public spat on Twitter with a dig at LIV players.

“LIV players- We want to play less golf,” the golfer-turned-influencer, 29, tweeted Wednesday. “Also LIV players- We are suing so we can play more golf.”

Leading up to LIV Golf’s inaugural event in June, PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan threatened to suspend players if they jumped ship to the rival circuit, which has only eight tournaments this year and 14 next. Several of the sport’s biggest stars have since been suspended as a result, including Dustin Johnson, who reportedly received upward of $100 million for joining LIV earlier this summer.

Elsewhere in the lawsuit, LIV Golf’s Talor Gooch, Matt Jones and Hudson Swafford requested a temporary restraining order that would enable them to participate in the PGA Tour’s upcoming FedEx Cup Playoffs, The Wall Street Journal first reported Wednesday.

Spiranac, who previously called out LIV golfers over their lack of transparency in regard to joining the league, later elaborated on her stance Wednesday in a separate message.

“I don’t have a dog in the fight. I’m pro golf and just want the best for the game,” Spiranac began, when asked by a fan, “Are you pro or anti LIV golf or just on the fence having fun throwing sh#t..”

“I will say I don’t like how some of the guys aren’t transparent on why they switched over and now still want to play on the PGA. You took the money now stay there if you’re so happy.”

Back in June, Spiranac expressed how she wished athletes would vocalize how much financial aspects may have played into their decision-making.

“These elaborate statements are annoying. No one going to the LIV tour actually cares about the progression of the game. I wish they just said ‘because it’s a s–t ton of money,” the “Playing A Round” podcast host tweeted at the time.

This isn’t the first time Spiranac has addressed LIV Golf’s massive paydays. Earlier this week, she spoke out on Twitter after it was reported that Tiger Woods turned down the league’s $700-$800 million offer.

“That is ‘eff you’ money, that is ‘buy an island’ money, and Tiger, he was like, ‘You know what, no thank you.’ Maybe it’s because he already has so much money he doesn’t know what to do with, he wants to protect his legacy, with a limited schedule even his body can’t play that much, maybe he wants to be a Ryder Cup captain. But Tiger, he said no,” Spiranac said Tuesday.

Ahead of last month’s British Open, Woods made his stance on LIV Golf very clear.

“The players who have chosen to go to LIV and to play there, I disagree with it,’’ Woods said. “I think that what they’ve done is they’ve turned their back on what has allowed them to get to this position.”

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also put NICEBUNS, FATFANNY, GOTAPOOP and BENDOVER in the rear-view mirror.

One player unsuccessfully tried to score the plate YESDADDY, to no avail.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
