Got to figure that Spoelstra has to love Deng described as "a warrior" in the scouting report leaked about the Heat free-agent addition.

Victor Oquendo

Two children home safe tonight after their mother left them inside her car that was stolen in Pompano Beach. More at 11:00 on @WPLGLocal10.

Ira Winderman

A couple of nights to forget for the Marlins.

Barry Jackson

So NFLPA says they have a drug policy agreement. NFL says they don't. NFL's web site says Jordan,Jones reinstated.Players,team not informed.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Cool story here on Dream Team II, the one that few remember: bleacherreport.com/articles/21867…

Ethan J. Skolnick

That last retweet is why so few players trust the league on anything -- from discipline to safety.

Barry Jackson

NFL Media states Dion Jordan and Reshad Jones will be reinstated now; the 2 players & Dolphins had not been informed as of short time ago.

Bill Reiter

A lot of this is good, too, if ugly. Good to confront and have national conversations over race (Sterling), domestic violence (Rice), etc...

Bill Reiter

Sports are no long an escape from reality. They reflect it. And there's some darkness there - some light, to be sure, but some darkness too.

Bill Reiter

Peterson story as much about "spanking" as Ray Rice situation is about "marital discord." Give me a break, people, and think with some depth

Bill Reiter

Check out @getnickwright's timeline for Peterson info.

Shandel Richardson

Been spanked with a "switch" & marks usually left after a few hours. Appears Peterson's kid returned home day(s) later w/ visible wounds.

Bill Reiter

If those photos are accurate - and if Peterson inflicted them - I hope the NFL comes down hard. That's abuse, plain and simple.

Bill Reiter

Who beats, in any respect, a four-year-old child? What is wrong with people?

Shandel Richardson

Someone needs to start some sort of Internet challenge to raise NFL awareness.

Ira Winderman

Hawks General Manager Danny Ferry steps aside, as racially insensitive scouting report on Luol Deng surfaces bit.ly/1qOXRpn

Bill Reiter

What a week in sports, and a reminder that in something as trivial in the end as our games we need voices that challenge the status quo

Ira Winderman

Hawks announce Danny Ferry has requested and has been granted an indefinite leave of absence.

I'm following the Marlins and Thursday Night Football on twitter and I'm struggling to tell which officiating crew is doing a worse job.

Ira Winderman

Anthony DeSclafani ejected for hitting body armor on the elbow. Stanton hit in the face . . . no ejection.

Ethan J. Skolnick

If you haven't watched a Marlins game all season, this is the one to check out. Apparently, the umpires are inventing rules.

Ira Winderman

Giancarlo Stanton was hit in the face with an 88 mph fastball . . . and called for a swinging strike.

Ira Winderman

Prayers for Giancarlo Stanton. Pitch got under helmet.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Two thoughts on the Danny Ferry tape.... 1. Those sound very much like his words. 2. Are all NBA executive calls that juvenile?

Ira Winderman

The audio of Danny Ferry evaluating Luol Deng (with plenty of NSFW language in background). ajc.com/weblogs/atlant…

Ira Winderman

Now that Ferry-Deng tape is out, two thoughts: Those come off clearly as Ferry's words; someone in ownership clearly making sure he's gone.

Ethan J. Skolnick

James Brown was excellent during the pregame. Compare to Chris Berman the other night... https://t.co/JeealgPyne

... Jordan and Jones still hope four-game suspensions would be reduced once new policy passes.

Barry Jackson

Dolphins player rep. John Denney said it's unclear to him whether Reshad Jones & Dion Jordan would be reinstated with new drug policy.

Barry Jackson

... That retweet is from agent for Andrew McDonald, the player Turner justified giving the blow-up doll to. Turner doesn't explain 58 sacks.

Mario Chalmers

Na I ain't play for that man. RT @MrBomet:

... when questioned by investigators.Said he gave male blow up doll to player partly because player didn't ask for women's phone numbers.

Jim Turner asking his lawyer to do a 25-page report about his role in Bullygate did him no favors. He suddenly remembered things he forgot..

The only NBA player to miss a game last season for such a situation was Jared Sullinger. Charges dropped, but Celtics suspended for opener.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Incidentally, the NBA had at least 4 domestic violence "situations" over last 12 months, but none got .01% of this attention. Not big names.

Ethan J. Skolnick

At a time when the NBA's Hawks mess is sliding under national radar b/c of Ray Rice, Paul George's tweets aren't ideal
