For labeling actors from a recent movie about hooliganism as actual hooligans, Scotland Yard. Fans of Premier League club West Ham United violently clashed with supporters of rival London club Millwall in August. In an effort to identify them, Scotland Yard last week released 66 pictures of people it said were captured on camera during the fights. Six stills from the movie The Firm—about a young man drawn into the world of London hooliganism—were accidentally included. (A clip from the film was part of a TV report on the skirmishes, but the police watched it without sound and didn't realize it was a movie.) "We wish to apologise unreservedly to those affected," Scotland Yard said in a statement. "We are going to be actively trying to contact those people to offer our apologies."
By Bob Knight, an invitation to return to the University of Indiana to attend his induction into the school's sports hall of fame. Knight, who won 662 games and three national titles in 29 years with the Hoosiers, was fired in 2000 after allegedly violating the school's zero-tolerance conduct code when he allegedly grabbed a student whom he thought was being disrespectful. Knight told the school he wouldn't attend because he didn't want to divert attention from the other six inductees.
