HoopsHype Miami Heat twitter
Got to figure that Spoelstra has to love Deng described as "a warrior" in the scouting report leaked about the Heat free-agent addition.
A couple of nights to forget for the Marlins.
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.
That last retweet is why so few players trust the league on anything -- from discipline to safety.
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.
A lot of this is good, too, if ugly. Good to confront and have national conversations over race (Sterling), domestic violence (Rice), etc...
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.
Peterson story as much about "spanking" as Ray Rice situation is about "marital discord." Give me a break, people, and think with some depth
Been spanked with a "switch" & marks usually left after a few hours. Appears Peterson's kid returned home day(s) later w/ visible wounds.
If those photos are accurate - and if Peterson inflicted them - I hope the NFL comes down hard. That's abuse, plain and simple.
Who beats, in any respect, a four-year-old child? What is wrong with people?
Someone needs to start some sort of Internet challenge to raise NFL awareness.
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
Hawks announce Danny Ferry has requested and has been granted an indefinite leave of absence.
...Starks, Wallace, Wheeler, Clay, Moreno among many players listed as probable.No questionables...Out: Pouncey, Fede, Tripp.
Misi, Billy Turner listed as doubtful for Dolphins for Sunday.
As @TimReynolds noted,because Al-Quadin didn't play in first two games,he doesn't lose year of eligibility.Has 3 seasons left if stays at UM
..This Al Quadin decision was made above athletic department. Al Quadin claimed self-defense. Members of football staff think it's too harsh
Nerlens getting in some practice w/ NBA TV in the building to film
... This is punishment for a confrontation with a former roommate that left roommate with broken nose. UM football staff unhappy with this.
UM announces that Al Quadin Muhammad is not enrolled for fall semester and will not be participating in athletics this fall.
Marvin Williams' middle name is fantastic.
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.
Anthony DeSclafani ejected for hitting body armor on the elbow. Stanton hit in the face . . . no ejection.
If you haven't watched a Marlins game all season, this is the one to check out. Apparently, the umpires are inventing rules.
Giancarlo Stanton was hit in the face with an 88 mph fastball . . . and called for a swinging strike.
Prayers for Giancarlo Stanton. Pitch got under helmet.
Two thoughts on the Danny Ferry tape.... 1. Those sound very much like his words. 2. Are all NBA executive calls that juvenile?
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.
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.
Dolphins player rep. John Denney said it's unclear to him whether Reshad Jones & Dion Jordan would be reinstated with new drug policy.
... That retweet is from agent for Andrew McDonald, the player Turner justified giving the blow-up doll to. Turner doesn't explain 58 sacks.
Bad news for baseball fans without Fox Sports 1: Fox is putting Games 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7 of NLCS on Fox Sports 1, plus most NL div. series gms
Fins LB Philip Wheeler said he's a lot more comfortable being able to play and tackle with the cast on his hand and expects to play Sunday.
... 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..
Helluva season premiere of Sons of Anarchy. Usually that show starts slow and ends as well as any on television. Not this year.
McCain said he got a lot of texts and calls from friends, family and even "long lost cousins" after his performance vs the Patriots.
Chris McCain happy to be back after missing time due to illness. Says he was on an emotional high from his first game, but ready for Bills.
Paul George (cont.), "... proper understanding of the seriousness of the situation and I sincerely regret my poor choice of words."
Paul George, "I want to apologize to all victims of domestic abuse for my insensitive tweets. They were obviously without... (cont)."
Stacy Coley out for UM Saturday with a shoulder injury.
As I noted today, NBA had recently cracked down on back-to-backs. 580 in '09 to 600 to 603 to (lockout year) to 574 to 560. Now up to 578.
The only NBA player to miss a game last season for such a situation was Jared Sullinger. Charges dropped, but Celtics suspended for opener.
Incidentally, the NBA had at least 4 domestic violence "situations" over last 12 months, but none got .01% of this attention. Not big names.
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
C'mon, Paul George. http://t.co/4MPqeQeUQ5
CBS sending Dolphins-Bills only to South Florida, Fort Myers/Naples, Tampa, much of NY (but not NYC), Erie, Penn. and Waco, Texas.
If this is the way that the NFL investigates incidents, every suspension Goodell's ever given is suspect
Not sure we'll see a better game on any level for a while, at least this meaningful. Great theater for France against Spain.
