Head Coach Sean McDermott Wednesday, August 15, 2018 Opening Statement: First as we open up here, a few announcements. First and foremost, I want to thank everyone associated with training camp, the Saint John Fisher staff. [It was] a phenomenal training camp and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate coming up here and everyone opening up their arms and embracing us in this short period of time and really bending over backwards for us here. And that goes for our fans up here as well. It’s great to connect with our fan base and really get one on one and see them and they see us. That’s all part of the platform that we have as members of the NFL. We appreciate that. Moving forward, we did sign a new player, Sam Rogers, fullback out of Virginia Tech. He’ll be out at practice this morning. You’ll see him. We’re going to waive injured Zach Olstad with the ankle and we certainly wish him all the best.

As summer vacationers start to pack up and head home, Congress is considering a sweeping assortment of proposals that stand to affect travelers, from dictating seat size and legroom to rolling back rules that require airlines to advertise the full price of a ticket. The current law authorizing operations of the Federal Aviation Administration expires on Sept. 30. Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, is working to bring his panel's bill for a five-year reauthorization to the Senate floor after a series of delays. The House passed its version of the same bill in April. Consumer advocates see victories and setbacks among the provisions in the two bills. • Airline seats: The House bill would give the FAA a year to set minimums for seat width and length and the distance between rows, although it didn't set specific measurements. The version approved by a Senate committee would only direct the FAA to study whether there should be minimum requirements for … [Read more...] about Bills hold array of changes for airlines
ANTOINE GRIEZMANN will have to go a long way to top this summer. A World Cup win in Russia – where he scored a penalty in the final - came after he did what almost no other player on the planet would do in saying ‘no’ to a move to Barcelona. And despite his heroics on the pitch, the 27-year-old dad-of-one has done it all while looking the king of cool off it. This season could be career-defining for Griezmann. With Cristiano Ronaldo going to Juventus, Griezmann is La Liga’s second biggest star behind Barcelona’s Lionel Messi. His Atletico side finished runners-up to Barca in the title race last year but won the Europa League under boss Diego Simeone. With a proven eye for goals – and fashion – this season could be Griezmann’s if he continues his red-hot form. You may not be able to replicate his skills in front of thousands fans, but you can copy his look in front of your mates, all for a good price. Here, we pick out the designer options … [Read more...] about Antoine Griezmann fashion: how to look like World Cup winner and Atletico Madrid star at a fraction of the cost
Bruce McAvaney has become one of the sounds of Australian sport, and love him or hate him, you have to respect his impressive resume. But with football only on three days a week, what does ‘Mr Olympics’ do on a ‘normal’ work day? 6:42 Wake up. Such a strange dream; Brian Taylor and I were clinging from a cliff; herd of wildebeest stampeding beneath. Dennis Cometti came to rescue us but only helped Brian up, and I woke in up in a cold sweat. Not looking into it too much, everyone knows Dennis loves me asking him lots of questions. 6:55 Let Cyril the cat into the house and pat him for a few minutes. Get lost in his eyes as we share a little pre-breakfast moment. 7:03 Toast crumpets for Anne and me. Quietly murmur “Gee this is something special” to myself as the butter glides over their porous surface, settling into a thin, delicious film. 7:25 Pick the papers off the front lawn. Read up on the horses, Sapphire Monkey running in the fifth at Randwick. … [Read more...] about A day in the life of Bruce McAvaney
If Beckham gets the $20 million per year deal he seeks it would make him the highest paid non-quarterback by Joel Corry @corryjoel moments ago • 11 min read Odell Beckham, Jr. is officially in the on-deck circle. Giants President and CEO John Mara announced late last week that negotiations for a new contract would start "sooner rather than later." His feelings towards Beckham have taken a sharp turn since the annual NFL owners' meeting in late March. Mara publicly vented his frustration with Beckham's behavior while also declaring the mercurial wide receiver wasn't untouchable, which prompted speculation that he could be traded.Beckham has been on his best behavior ever since. He had near perfect attendance at New York's offseason workouts. Unlike fellow 2014 first round picks, Rams interior defensive lineman Aaron Donald and Raiders defensive end Khalil Mack, Beckham isn't holding out of training camp as a gesture of good faith despite a long … [Read more...] about Agent’s Take: Will an Odell Beckham Jr. deal be a major reset of the wide receiver market?
