“If you get in the drug program and you get in trouble, it so punitive,” Williams told the Tribune Review while discussing NFL drug policies. “Players aren getting help. They are only getting punished for something that I think we can at least make the argument is probably healthier than opioids and prescription drugs that players are taking.”.
STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES Pittsburgh’s top receiver, Hines Ward, is averaging 14.3 yards per catch. Denver’s top wideout, Brandon Marshall, is averaging 10.8 yards per reception. Marshall, however, has twice as many TDs (4) as Ward. President Obama is going along with that philosophy, too. The President says he’s not going to endorse either Sanders or Clinton until the Democratic nominee is selected. Then, he says he’ll support the Democrat running in the general election.
And Kansas City returner Tyreek Hill muffed a punt.Carr made up for his mistake by completing a 12 yard pass to Jarvis Landry on a fourth and 7 play in the waning minutes.

Champion football players? Yeah, that the justification and excuse a whole lot of football players use to get off serious crimes like rape, murder, assault. That bull.
Why does this year’s edition of the Rhymesayers promoted all day hip hop festival Soundset stand a good chance of being the best one yet? Well, for one thing, it’s at Canterbury Park instead of the inhospitable concrete hot plate that is the HHH Metrodump’s parking lot. For another, it features one of the best independent/classic skewing hip hop lineups in recent memory. And they’ll be joined by luminaries from across the continent: El P, who just reissued Company Flow’s earth shaking ’97 debut Funcrusher Plus and maintains the momentum of ’07s devastating I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead; DOOM (minus the MF, plus the rightly hyped Born Like This), who’ll hopefully break from the whole send an impostor routine to drop knowledge in person; the full original lineup of West Coast icons the Pharcyde; raspy Canadian junkshop genius Buck 65; Philly’s 21st century street rap icon Freeway (paired with Seattle secret weapon producer Jake One); and Prince Paul, the man who produced the first two De La albums and created some of hip hop’s most enduring concept records.
