This hasn't been a very good week for Ndamukong Suh, who is already in the news for his $100,000 fine -- and now this. According to a Birmingham police report, Suh confronted the employee with a pellet gun around 9 p.m. on Aug. 16 when the employee was in Suh's yard trying to fix the cable for another home. Comcast employee Spencer Ferrell, 22, told police the utility pole holding the cable service box he was fixing was in the service residence's backyard, right next to a fence shared with Suh's home. Ferrell told police the box could only be accessed by going through Suh's yard, and after bringing his tools into the yard, Suh came out of his garage waving the pellet gun in "an intimidating manner." After listening to Suh yell, Ferrell said he returned to his work truck and called his supervisor and 911. (The Detroit News) Comment
Here we go again. Five Southeastern Conference football stars violated NCAA rules by receiving extra benefits prior to completing their collegiate careers, a Yahoo Sports investigation has found. The benefits -- which in some cases came from multiple individuals -- were conveyed to University of Alabama offensive tackle D.J. Fluker, University of Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray, Tennessee defensive end Maurice Couch, Mississippi State University defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and Mississippi State wideout Chad Bumphis. Fluker, Bray and Cox are all currently on NFL rosters. ... The identities of these players were revealed in a web of financial and text message records belonging to former Crimson Tide defensive end Luther Davis. (Yahoo Sports) Comment
Derek Jeter's season is over, courtesy another setback in a season largely defined by them. And now perhaps he should seriously considering calling it a career. No one wants to admit that's a possibility -- not today, not yet. But realistically, it seems unlikely that Jeter, an all-time great, could ever come close to approaching his own standard of excellence. At this point, after a season filled with starts and memorable stops, and ultimately only 17 games played, it seems a stretch to even think he could even be a starting shortstop again. ... Of course, no one official is saying anything of the sort today. Jeter's career has been about greatness. It also has been about beating back the critics and the doubters. "I have not watched his last game," Yankees GM Brian Cashman told writers in Baltimore. (CBS Sports) Comment
