Last week, the international Court of Arbitration for Sports ruled against South African runner Caster Semenya, banning her from competing against women unless she underwent procedures to reduce her natural levels of testosterone. Two days before the ruling went into effect, Semenya won an 800-meter race in Doha with the eighth fastest outdoor time ever. Bleacher Report's Mirin Fader shares her thoughts on Semenya's case.

Plus, the right-wing media corporation Sinclair Broadcasting has bought 21 regional sports networks from Disney/Fox. New York Magazine contributing editor Will Leitch discusses whether politically charged ownership will influence TV sports content.

And in a recent interview with the radio station WJOX, Alabama football head coach Nick Saban discussed "Game of Thrones." "The White Walkers were the bad dudes, man," Saban said. "I mean, if we were recruiting, we would go north and try to recruit some of those guys." Only A Game's Karen Given says she'd prefer a different fantasy character lining up in the backfield.
