Seymour joins Vrabel, Clayborn as Patriots Hall of Fame finalists
(Fri, 21 Apr 2017 20:17:59 GMT)
This is going to start getting really tough on Patriots fans. In theory, it always has been. Every year since 2007, they've gone online and selected one inductee for the Patriots Hall of Fame from a pool of three finalists. Those finalists are the best of the best, voted to that spot by a 20-person committee of media, Patriots alumni and staff. But now we're really getting into the meat of the Bill Belichick Era, meaning every spring there seems to be more qualified players -- championship players -- up for consideration. This year Richard Seymour was among the first-year candidates, and he was voted by the committee to one of the three finalist spots. He'll be joined there by Mike Vrabel and
Giants claim evidence was omitted to make Eli Manning look guilty
(Sat, 22 Apr 2017 13:07:08 GMT)
The Giants consistently have said that the supposed smoking-gun email implicating quarterback Eli Manning in memorabilia fraud was taken out of context and does not show that he actually wanted to dupe purchasers of game-used helmets with helmets not actually used in a game. According to ESPN.com, lawyers representing the Giants and Manning have claimed in a court filing that the lawyers representing the plaintiffs in that case deliberately omitted “relevant evidence” to create the impression that Manning was complicit in a scheme to defraud. The claims were made in a formal request to ask the presiding judge to uphold an agreement that information regarded as confidential would not be disclosed publicly. The Giants’ lawyers also contend that the plaintiffs “cherry-picked” the email that seems to show Eli’s involvement, in order to make him look bad publicly.
How David Freese opening up on battle with depression helps everyone
(Sat, 22 Apr 2017 02:06:05 GMT)
David Freese was on top of the world back in the fall of 2011. Or at least that’s how it appeared to those on the outside looking in. At the time he was playing a key role in the St. Louis Cardinals run to a World Series championship, even earning MVP honors for his heroic performance in the Fall Classic. What we didn’t know then, is that Freese was actually at or near the lowest point in his life. The now 33-year-old major leaguer revealed as much in a recent article from USA Today’s Bob Nightengale, which chronicles Freese’s battles with depression, anxiety and alcohol abuse.
Assault charge dropped in punch outside Trump campaign rally
(Sat, 22 Apr 2017 08:00:00 GMT)
ASHEVILLE, N.C. – Prosecutors have dropped a misdemeanor assault charge against a 73-year-old man who police say hit a woman outside of a Donald Trump campaign rally in North Carolina last September. Buncombe County District Attorney Todd Williams told the Citizen-Times of Asheville (http://avlne.ws/2oTJK7k ) that the case was dismissed after prosecutors spoke to the victim, 69-year-old Shirley Teter. Teter initially told police she was punched in the face outside of the Trump rally. Williams wouldn't say why his office decided not to press the case. His office's court filing cites "prosecutorial discretion." A lawyer for Richard Campbell said the man had poor eyesight and was trying to brush
Shawn Porter's body work, whirlwind attack result in ninth-round TKO of Andre Berto
(Sun, 23 Apr 2017 03:53:21 GMT)
Shawn Porter’s boxing style isn’t elegant, but it is oh-so effective. The muscular 29-year-old simply overwhelmed Andre Berto by sheer force of will, dropping the two-time former champion three times and stopping him at 1:31 of the ninth in their WBC welterweight title eliminator Saturday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Porter put on a devastating body attack, and Berto deserves an exceptional amount of credit for standing up to them and fighting back the way he did.

(Sat, 22 Apr 2017 13:23:28 GMT)

Police and paramedics from LifeCare Ambulance were called at 7:02 p.m. Friday to the 100 block of Ridge Street for a man with a leg injury. Police said they learned that the man, 18, of Battle Creek, and his girlfriend had been arguing a few houses away about money for marijuana when the man climbed on the hood of the car to prevent the woman from leaving. She attempted to drive away anyway. The man fell and she ran over him. Police said the woman then ran over the man a second time. The man's was broken in two places and he was taken

James Worthy Fires Back At Kevin Durant ... After KD Trashed Him 1 4/22/2017 12:25 AM PDT James Worthy ain't backing down from Kevin Durant -- saying the NBA star was not only WRONG when he trashed him on a recent podcast, but claims KD's underhanded allegations could seriously damage his career. Worthy is upset about a story Durant told on "The Bill Simmons Podcast" -- in which KD says he met Worthy last year and they had a very cool conversation about Durant leaving OKC for Golden State. But Kevin says he learned a short time later that Worthy trashed him about the move during a TV interview. Durant felt betrayed and called James "shady" and "corny." But Worthy says Durant's version of the

Raiders G.M. needs an answer from Marshawn Lynch soon
(Fri, 21 Apr 2017 18:19:52 GMT)
Despite a report that running back Marshawn Lynch had reached a deal with the Raiders that would set the stage for a trade, things haven’t progressed past that point. As far as Raiders General Manager Reggie McKenzie is concerned, the time to make a decision is coming soon. “At some point, you’d like to know,” McKenzie said, via Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “Prior to the draft is that point.” It’s not that the compensation involved in acquiring him from the Seahawks figures to be too significant, it’s that the Raiders can’t pass on a chance to add another back next week if he’s not coming out of retirement. After losing Latavius Murray in free agency, the Raiders have a significant

Ian Poulter lost his PGA Tour card, but he isn't giving up on pro golf
(Sat, 22 Apr 2017 21:38:05 GMT)
Ian Poulter lost his status on Friday at the Valero Texas Open. Ian Poulter formally lost his fully-exempt PGA Tour status on Friday when he missed the cut at the Valero Texas Open, leaving him short of fulfilling the requirements of a major medical extension on which his card hinged. The 41-year-old took time off last year from the Tour to rest an injured foot, and, upon his return, was given 10 starts by the PGA Tour to earn enough money to make up the gap between his 2015-16 earnings and what the player who finished 125th on last season’s money list made.

Iowa A.D. Gary Barta details damaged relationship with Meyer
(Sat, 22 Apr 2017 01:34:00 GMT)
University of Iowa athletic director Gary Barta testified Friday that his relationship with a former top administrator deteriorated after Barta informed her that after a reorganization of the athletic department, she no longer would be his second-in-command. Testifying in a discrimination lawsuit filed by that former administrator, Jane Meyer, Barta said the two initially had a strong working relationship but that she became antagonistic after he told her in 2013 that he'd look for a new deputy director. Barta said part of the basis for his decision was his belief the head football and wrestling coaches wouldn't support Meyer as the deputy. "Our working relationship that day changed forever,"

(Sat, 22 Apr 2017 23:10:23 GMT)
Twins third baseman Miguel Sano and Tigers pitcher Matt Boyd were both ejected during the fifth inning moments after Sano took exception to having a pitch thrown behind him. Sano immediately pointed at Boyd, then threw what umpire Mike Everitt deemed to be a punch at catcher James McCann as he attempted to get between the heated combatants.
McCarthy, Goddard criticize ‘shameful’ late stoppage in Falcao fight
(Sat, 22 Apr 2017 05:00:00 GMT)
It’s not everyday you see referees criticizing one of their own in the tight-knit world of mixed martial arts, but it’s also not everyday you see a stoppage as egregious as the one that went down Friday at the Fight Night Global 63 event in Vladivostok, Primorsky, Russia. In the night’s co-main event, UFC and Bellator veteran Maiquel Falcao wound up on the receiving end of one of the worst late stoppages you’ll ever see in his rematch against middleweight prospect Vladimir Mineev. The call was so indefensible that it prompted responses from veteran referees Marc Goddard and John McCarthy, including a particularly angry one from Goddard. Video and gifs of the incident can be seen below, along

For every step the Oakland Athletics have taken toward identifying a new ballpark location in or around Oakland, it seems they’ve taken 10 steps back. Perhaps that’s about to change though, as the team revealed on Friday that it intends to announce a new ballpark site in Oakland before the end of 2017. A ballpark site in Oakland will be announced later this year.

Tim Howard responds to suspension: 'There is a line that shouldn’t be crossed'
(Fri, 21 Apr 2017 18:49:16 GMT)
Colorado Rapids goalkeeper Tim Howard has issued his first public response since being hit with a three-game suspension for altercations with fans in his team's 31 loss to Sporting Kansas City on April 9. In announcing the suspension a week ago, Major League Soccer pointed to two incidents: A profane verbal interaction with a fan that took place during the game, and a physical confrontation with another fan after it was over. In a Facebook post published on Friday, Howard accepted blame for his actions but also criticized the fans' behavior and the stadium security's efforts at keeping said fan under control.
LaVar Ball says 'white guys' comment was misunderstood: 'I love those guys'
(Sat, 22 Apr 2017 19:46:55 GMT)
LaVar Ball, the father of former UCLA star Lonzo Ball, said comments he made about his son's white teammates were misunderstood. "I love those guys," LaVar Ball said Friday. Ball was quoted Thursday by the Southern California News Group as saying the Bruins lost to Kentucky in the NCAA tournament because his son injured his hamstring during the game and "realistically you can't win no championship with three white guys because the foot speed is too slow." Ball attempted to clarify those comments Friday during an interview with ESPNLA 710. "I am not saying I don't like the white guys and we lost because of them. No -- that's how they twisted it up," he said. Ball's comments appeared to be a reference
Philip Rivers has no qualms about Joey Bosa skipping workouts
(Fri, 21 Apr 2017 18:25:34 GMT)
Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa has opted not to show up for optional voluntary workouts. If any of his teammates will be applying peer pressure to Bosa, it won’t be his starting quarterback, Philip Rivers. “I know this about Joey,” Rivers told Hardwick & Richards on XTRA 1360 AM in San Diego. “Joey’s gonna put his hand on the ground and he’s gonna play as hard as anybody on the field for however many snaps we play, and he’s gonna be in as good a shape if not better than any guy in the building. Now, I think we’ve got a heck of a program, and what we’re doing is awesome as far as an offseason program, it’s great. “But you also know, at least I’ve found out in a year’s time with Joey, is that
Canadiens ‘waste opportunity’ as P.K. Subban plays on
(Sun, 23 Apr 2017 04:41:52 GMT)
P.K. Subban’s Nashville Predators are playing in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Marc Bergevin’s Montreal Canadiens are not. From a Canadiens’ perspective, the main on-ice argument for the Subban-for-Shea Weber trade was that it would benefit Montreal in the short term, given that the 31-year-old Weber still had a few effective years in him.
Red Sox upset after Manny Machado slide shakes up Dustin Pedroia
(Sat, 22 Apr 2017 15:40:04 GMT)
The Boston Red Sox had a frustrating night at Camden Yards on Friday, losing 2-0 to the Orioles. Things got a little heated in the eighth inning when Orioles third baseman Manny Machado appeared to slide late into second base to break up a double play. The slide did its intended job, but the momentum also caused Machado’s foot to skip over the base and his spike to catch the back of Dustin Pedroia’s right calf.

Patriots seven-round mock: Depth added at receiver, tackle in the third
(Sat, 22 Apr 2017 05:31:53 GMT)
In our first mock draft of the season, published last week, we highlighted the fact that the Patriots have left us hints over the years as to the characteristics they're looking for in certain positions. Generally speaking. Big linebackers. Athletic corners. Fast safeties who can tackle. Physical specimens at tight end. In this week's mock we'll stick with players who fit the Patriots mold . . . or at least come close. But instead of making selections that fill immediate needs, we'll focus our picks on positions that could use some help a little further down the line. It's something the Patriots have done for years -- drafting Nate Solder when Matt Light and Sebastian Vollmer were on the roster,

Strange play in Orioles-Reds game confuses pretty much everyone
(Fri, 21 Apr 2017 16:28:04 GMT)
It was the top of the fourth inning, and Orioles first baseman Chris Davis was batting with Manny Machado on first. The ball was a laser, and it was hit right to third baseman Eugenio Suarez, who was manning the shift between first and second base. Suarez recovered the ball quickly and, assuming that the ball was still live, threw it to second base to get Machado out.

Former 49ers third-round pick Glen Coffee comes out of retirement
(Sat, 22 Apr 2017 16:47:20 GMT)
Glen Coffee, a running back who retired from the 49ers after just one year in the NFL, is trying to make a comeback. Coffee, the 49ers’ third-round draft pick in 2009, has filed the necessary paperwork to get back in the league. The 49ers placed him on waivers, meaning a team that wants to give him a look can claim him now. If no one claims him he becomes an unrestricted free agent. The 29-year-old Coffee initially said after retiring that he would go into the ministry, then enlisted in the U.S. Army in 2013 and served for four years. Now he’s hoping for another chance. He’s a long shot, given how long he’s been away, but a player with the talent to be a third-round pick ought to at least get
Hank Haney doesn't think Tiger Woods is into a comeback
(Fri, 21 Apr 2017 20:59:50 GMT)
This is a tough time for Tiger Woods fans. OK, really tough. Just four months after an uplifting 24-birdie performance at the Hero World Challenge, Woods essentially announced he was out for the remainder of the 2016-17 PGA Tour season as he underwent a fourth back surgery. And after so many setbacks, Woods’ future in golf looks pretty bleak. Add Hank Haney to those forecasting less-than-rosy times ahead. The former Woods instructor was conducting his daily SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio show Friday when he got to talking about the 41-year-old. One thought-provoking insight from Haney? Woods really may not have a desire to play competitive golf again. “I don’t believe Tiger is that enthralled by this
Report: NCAA ‘anticipates’ hearing UNC case in mid-August
(Fri, 21 Apr 2017 18:22:49 GMT)
Today, the AP churned out a story on Greg Sankey’s involvement with the NCAA’s investigation into the academic scandal at North Carolina, and buried within that story is this little nugget: UNC must respond to the latest charges by May 16. The NCAA enforcement staff then has until July 17 for its own response. Sankey wrote that his panel will hear the case in August with “anticipated” dates of Aug. 16 and 17. Rulings typically come weeks to months later. We’ve been down this road before, as the current iteration of the Notice of Allegations is the third that the NCAA has provided the university. The first was given out back in May of 2015 for an investigation that began back in 2010.
How yoga helps Danica Patrick in NASCAR races
(Fri, 21 Apr 2017 19:41:25 GMT)
It's well-documented that Danica Patrick is a yoga master, and her many skills are the result of practicing for years. To stay healthy and in shape for racing, she does a variety of cardio and weight training, and yoga remains an important part of her regimen. "The most common (thing it helps with) is breathing and recognizing how the breath controls everything, and so if you get nervous or anxious or gripping the wheel too tight, it's pretty automatic for me to just take deep breaths to calm down," Patrick told For The Win. Patrick - who's currently 29th in the driver standings through the first seven races - said her favorite yoga pose to experiment with is the handstand, which she first conquered a couple years ago after four months of intensely practicing it.

Tony Romo will get to call a pair of Cowboys games this year
(Fri, 21 Apr 2017 12:30:11 GMT)
Tony Romo’s still going to be working Cowboys games this year, but only two of them. With last night’s schedule release comes word that CBS will have a pair of Dallas games this year, giving the former quarterback and rookie broadcaster a chance to call games featuring his old team. According to Barry Horn of the Dallas Morning News, Romo will work the Nov. 5 visit from the Chiefs to Dallas, and will be back in the booth for the Thanksgiving Day Chargers-Cowboys game with partner Jim Nantz. Considering the apparent frost between him and coach Jason Garrett over the handling of last season (when Romo wasn’t given the chance to compete with rookie Dak Prescott for the starting job when he came back from his back injury), there’s the potential for some interesting commentary, if Romo chooses to share it.
Rafael Nadal beats David Goffin to reach Monte Carlo final

Report: Chances of 'Melo being traded to Celtics 'increasing'
(Fri, 21 Apr 2017 13:54:32 GMT)
The New York Post reported Friday that the chances of Carmelo Anthony being traded from the Knicks to the Celtics are "increasing" in light of the C's struggles in their first-round playoff series against Chicago. The Post quoted an NBA source as saying the Celtics coaching staff was in favor of acquiring Anthony at the trade deadline, but that Danny Ainge "had too many reservations". The Post also reported the Celtics wouldn't necessarily have to surrender the Nets' No. 1 pick, which could be the No. 1 overall pick, in a deal for Anthony.
