perth_map

Last month, Memphis Police located a gun in a lake on County Road 302 in Walnut, Mississippi that was believed to be the weapon used in the murder of Wright. Investigators said at the time that the remains were so badly decomposed that it was unclear how many times Wright had been shot. Authorities in Collierville were accused of dragging their feet in the days after the report was filed, and an apparent lack of communication kept authorities from linking the 911 call to the missing-person ...

Mitchell also spoke on that and praised Iloka, while informing Steelers fans not to attack him. Brown held onto the ball to score the eventual tying touchdown. "We want to play within the rules; we respect player safety", said Tomlin. I apologize for standing over him and that isn't me. Runyan said Iloka was suspended for forcibly hitting a defenseless player's neck or head area with the helmet, facemask, forearm or shoulder (Rule 12, Section 2, Article 7). Read More »

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly praised LSU offensive coordinator Matt Canada, who may not still be LSU's offensive coordinator for the bowl or for next year as Orgeron has hinted that he may be leaving for a head coaching job.

perth_map

The Spain Under-21 global signed a five-year contract at the Bernabeu a €500m release clause but could wish to seek a move away to secure regular first-team football. Both Arsene Wenger and Mauricio Pochettino are keen to sign him up in their efforts to rescue their hopes of a top four finish. Either way Ceballos wants regular first-team football, after making just two league starts this season, and is willing to move away from the Bernabeu in the new year to get it. Read More »

Allardyce to rest key players in Everton 'dead rubber'

perth_map

Everton came into the Premier League season with many believing they could be challenging for a Champions League spot, however, their form at the beginning was completely different to what anyone had expected. So there are signs that Everton can go there and win, but obviously they will be up against an in-form Liverpool with an attacking force, but they do have their weaknesses at the back. Read More »

Josh McDaniels gives his side of sideline spat with Tom Brady

perth_map

But it is amusing to consider that Brady is just SO PASSIONATE and CARES TOO MUCH and is just TOO MUCH OF A COMPETITOR when watching him melt down in a screaming match with his offensive coordinator. You move on quickly from it. "I love Tom and all those things he stands for and all the things he does for our team". When asked about Lee's transition to the team, New England's head coach Bill Belichick had nothing but praise for the young addition. Read More »

Florida State reportedly hiring Oregon's Willie Taggart to replace Jimbo Fisher

perth_map

Word is, Taggart had opportunities to get in on other open Power 5 jobs this year, but he wasn't going to leave for any job other than Florida State's if it were to come open. It's unclear who will coach the team for the game. The Florida State Seminoles have found their new head coach. He was also the first African American head coach at each of his first three jobs.

Yankees reportedly faucet Boone as new supervisor

Boone becomes just the third different manager the Yankees have had dating back to 1996. Boone, who has no managerial or coaching experience but plenty of broadcasting experience, has been in the booth with ESPN since 2010.

Former OU quarterback, assistant Josh Heupel hired as UCF head football coach

perth_map

That paved the way for Lincoln Riley to become offensive coordinator, and later coach, in Norman. Oklahoma's history of having offensive coordinators become future head coaches returned to a ideal record on Tuesday. Frost has already committed to coaching the Knights in the Peach Bowl, so Heupel could stay to coach the Tigers or get a jump on recruiting. Heupel, who finished up his collegiate playing career at Oklahoma, spent the 2015 season as coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Utah ... Read More »

United are all but guaranteed to reach the next stage, as long as Basel fail to beat Benfica - and even then Jose Mourinho's side would have to lose at home to CSKA Moscow by more than six goals at Old Trafford. A point will confirm European football in the new year for the Scottish side, whilst Anderlecht can leapfrog them into third on goal difference providing they win 3-0. Read More »

The woman said she only remembered kissing him and vomiting, according to the protective order. The petition also states the woman planned on taking an Uber home, but that "Rodney's friends insisted that he take me home". The allegations are patently false. It is incumbent on our community to reserve judgment and to treat this allegation on its own merit. A hearing on the student's petition is scheduled for December 18 in front of Special District Judge Jequita H. Read More »

Durant, however, says had no interest getting into a real fight. The Warriors star spoke to the media about the incident and said that players never have any intention of hurting one another when you see them in these heated exchanges. We wait to see how the National Basketball Association deals with this and if they'll punish Durant and Cousins any more than just their ejections from the game. Read More »

Real Chasing Man City Star?

perth_map

This is unlikely to concern any of the City hierarchy as Sterling still has well over two years remaining on his current deal and is surely as happy as ever at the Etihad given his and the side's impressive form. The 22-year-old has been in sterling form this season, and wants to focus on City's Premier League campaign, and the Three Lions' World Cup bid, before looking to pen a new deal. Read More »

Stephen Colbert makes Billy Bush listen to 'Access Hollywood' tape

Bush said the reports of Trump's denial "infuriated" him, not only because of his own involvement, but because of the women who had stepped forward accusing Trump of sexual harassment. "The very day he was swearing in as the 45th President of the United States, I was checking into this soul-searching retreat in Santalina, California, for nine days". Read More »

Should the former Barcelona star make such a dramatic U-turn on his £600,000-a-week contract , reports suggest his former arch rivals Real Madrid are first in line, as they look for a long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo .

Why The Bills Were Stupid In Loss To Patriots

Injuries and accusations overshadowed New England extending its winning streak to eight games and closing in on its ninth consecutive AFC East title following a 23-3 win on Sunday. Taylor performed so poorly on Sunday before being carted off in the fourth quarter with an undisclosed knee injury (suffered on the games first play, a sack) that he had 48 yards passing at halftime, added just 17 in the third quarter and produced none early in the fourth on 0-for-3 passing.

'Phenomenal' Pogba to face CSKA as Mourinho stays tight-lipped on appeal

perth_map

The debate among some fans over whether Mourinho might target a draw is troubling. United will also enter the match off the back of successive away Premier League wins. "All the other players that didn't play the last match, they are all still out". "There are other clubs also involved in the qualification and I need to keep a certain balance in the team but when you speak about Luke Shaw you are right, he is working to have an opportunity and sooner or later the opportunity will arrive ...

Man Utd 'confident' of sealing £50m January transfer

perth_map

Ashley Young , primarily an attacking player, is now filling the left-back role, while Luke Shaw , a £28million capture from Southampton, is clearly not fancied by Mourinho. However, United are wary of negotiating with Daniel Lexy, who has proved to be a tough candidate to deal with over the years. The north London club have hit a rough patch of form, losing against Leicester City in mid-week and following that up with a draw against Watford , which has all but ended their title hopes.

Antonio Brown happy about Juju Smith-Schuster's block on Burfict

perth_map

Brown also said, "I liked that, I liked that", when discussing the block, per Chris Adamski of the Tribune-Review. Smith-Schuster was flagged for taunting and unnecessary roughness. He went on to miss the team's next playoff game in the AFC Championship. And while there's going to be a segment of the populations (particularly Steelers fans) who won't feel sympathetic for Burfict, there's really no excusing this sort of play when there's such a serious risk for injury.
