The Sports Tonight crew explores Curt Schilling's failures as a businessman... and that's the nice stuff they say.

"As great a pitcher as he was, he's an abomination as a business," said Joe Haggerty.

Kirk Minihane goes even further:

"Schilling at the end of the day is a giant, enormous 320 pound hypocrite. There's no way around it. Mr. Small Government, Mr. Stay Out Of My Way, Let Me Be The Guy. Then he goes, takes 75 million from the State of Rhode Island. Then he gets on his hands and knees last week, begs for more. And when they say no, what does he do, shuts down operations. 400 people out of work. State of RI 112 million. And guess what, who's paying for the unemployment? State of Rhode Island."

Ouch.

Curt Schilling may have thought his Red Sox heroics had earned him a free pass in New England, but he's probably gone and done the one thing that could bring more vitriol than anything else.

How long before people start throwing bloody socks his way?

Royer's late goal rallies Red Bulls past Revolution, 2-1

HARRISON, N.J. - Daniel Royer finished a nice sequence in the 74th minute, Luis Robles made a diving save in the closing minutes and the New York Red Bulls rallied to beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Saturday night.

Felipe sent the ball left to Kemar Lawrence alongside the box and he put a cross to Royer on the back post for an easy finish on his fourth goal.

Robles, who only allowed Lee Nguyen's penalty kick in the ninth minute, preserved the win with his fourth save, diving to his left to block Diego Fagundez's shot from outside the box.

Bradley Wright-Phillips tied it for New York (6-6-2), which was winless in its last four matches, when he pounced on a loose ball and backheeled it into the net. New England goalkeeper Cody Cropper had pounced on a cross by Kemar Lawance, but Cropper could hold on and Wright-Phillips was there to clean up for his sixth goal.

Damien Perrinelle fouled Fagundez in the penalty area after a great pass from Kei Kamara, allowing Nguyen to step up for his sixth goal. New England (4-5-4) had won two straight and lost just one of its previous six. It is 0-5-2 on the road.
