It's time for sports with Andy and Brian Kamenetzky, who have covered the sports scene for ESPN and the L.A. Times.

Every year, the NFL's competition committee takes a look at making rule changes. This year the committee is considering something that, while it sounds like it's right thing to do, may be too difficult to enforce and open up a cultural can of worms.  

In the wake of Michael Sam coming out and the signing of Jason Collins, the NFL is following a bill in Arizona that would allow business owners to refuse service to gays and lesbians citing religious beliefs. Why is the NFL paying attention?  

Speaking of religious beliefs, a pro football prospect made a big decision this past weekend but not without consulting someone with a lot of pull.  

From one contact sport to another, sort of. MLB is trying to come up with a compromise on collisions at home plate.  

It might be a long shot for Barry Bonds, baseball's all-time home run leader, to get in the Hall of Fame but putting on a Giants uniform again seems to be no problem.

I've always felt that while sports leagues are forever trying to keep PED's out, players will always find a way to keep them in.

Being a Hall of Famer apparently is not as noteworthy to the younger generation as it used to be.
