The 12 hosts of 710 ESPN Seattle have voted on the top Seattle sports stories of 2017. Each day we will count down to the top story of the year with an article by a different host. Today, John Clayton covers the seventh biggest story, the Seahawks additions of Pro Bowlers Sheldon Richardson and Duane Brown..

January 7, 2004Audit teams from the Gavin Group visited Dioceses from August to October and interviewed church leadership, lay workers, some local law enforcement officials and asked to see new reform policies and procedures. Baton Rouge and Houma Thibodaux passed on the first try. Elsewhere, auditors issued instructions where they found a mandated reform was not in place, or recommendations when a reform was nearly in place or could be improved.They also issued a number of commendations.

The building truly began when Robert Kraft bought the team on Jan. 21, 1994, nine days before the Bills lost their fourth Super Bowl to the Cowboys. So in a larger sense, it’s Kraft’s legacy. On later rosters, Cecil Isbell and Tony Canadeo were listed as left halfbacks and primary passers. I’m trying to understand how this offense worked. Thanks for any insight you can give..

Sometimes people get a lot of experience, and they struggle a little bit, and they get worse because they get intimidated by the situation. It a little too much pressure. I think Quise has gone the other way. I thought we had that all year. It was a matter of everything coming together. Whether they finish fourth or fifth or go on an extended playoff run or suffer a first round exit, they have reason to hold their heads high..

When countries use athletes to promote policy, the athletes are given little choice. But when athletes wish to stand up for causes they personally believe in, they are often condemned. Muhammad Ali learned that lesson in 1967 when he refused to be drafted into the Vietnam War on religious grounds and was convicted of draft evasion and stripped of his heavyweight champion title.

A Productive PPBo Horvat first goal on Saturday was on the power play scored off a thrilling rush to the net and not off a more conventional power play set up and playoff hopes ride on making the man advantage a point of strength. Remember: the Canucks PP has been awful over the last five years and is part of the reason for their decline. To have a chance at the playoffs this year, they need to find something like 40 more goals, both through better defence and better offence.

8 North Carolina) and earned six straight No. 1 rankings by the College Football Playoff. Under Swinney, Clemson posted nine straight games with at least 500 yards of total offense. It was said of Bear Bryant that he could take his’n and beat your’n and take your’n and beat his’n. Belichick has proved he can take Brady and beat you, but every so often he reminds us that he can, just for grins, beat you without him. (Not that Belichick is a grinner.

In the golden light of the long August afternoon, hundreds of women cavorted on the artificial turf, kicking, passing, receiving, tackling, pushing the exercise sled. At one end of the field, five participants lined up across from five others, each of whom was holding a big pad in front of chest. “When I say go,” said special teams coordinator and tight end coach Pete Alamar, “we’re going to see if you can drive anyone off the line of scrimmage.” In the officiating class, held in the stands, David Lambros, back judge and official for the PAC 10 conference, asked if anyone could name the most commonly called foul on offense in college bowl.

The upcoming draft is said to be one of the deepest in recent memory, so if that’s the case, wouldn’t it make sense for the Heat to move down six slots and grab an extra pick? For Portland, that move might make sense as well. Portland has the 15th pick, in addition to the 20th and 25th, so it might make sense for the team to want back to back mid first rounders instead of all three. NBA teams are not like NFL teams: They get to keep only 15 men, so Portland might want to move up..

Think this is probably as close as you can get to playing professional baseball, Luensmann said. Lot of the guys that were drafted have played here or will play here. This is just the level of competition you will see at the next level. That’s absurd, of course, but it speaks to the fear of some that parents might be banned from spanking their children rather than simply prevented from causing serious injury. Nobody is suggesting an end to spanking although that wouldn’t be an unreasonable idea given that research shows such physical punishment is more likely to cause harm to a child than good. A study published last year in the journal “Pediatrics” found young children who are spanked behave more aggressively toward others and frequent spanking can have a negative effect on cognitive abilities.

THE COACHESBob Semling in his 13th season as the head coach at UW Stevens Point and has won four national championships with the Pointers. He led the Pointers to national titles in 2010 and 2015 as a head coach and was an assistant on the back to back national title teams of 2004 and 2005. Semling has a career record of 280 79, including a 152 37 mark in WIAC play.

Bill Belichick and Matt Patricia seem more likely to game plan for the one they’ve seen most often, which means forcing check downs to less creative players and the erraticism that comes through trying to do more. That’ll come through New England’s top strength on defense, a diverse secondary led by cornerbacks Malcolm Butler and Stephon Gilmore and safeties Devin McCourty and Patrick Chung. The Patriots will ask them to lock up receivers Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith and tight end Zach Ertz in order to force the progressions that make Foles create.

Have an obligation to protect our passengers, Piccolo said. Vet every airline to taxi that operates here. For Uber and other start up ride share companies have been able to steer clear of taxi rules, at least in the short term, by claiming that they are not offering a cab service at all..

There are people who call everything they like ‘fabulous’, ‘cute’, or ‘darling’, and call things they don’t like ‘weird’, ‘dull’, or ‘lousy’. There are appropriate words to describe certain things.

The perennial Pro Bowl receiver retaliated against the trash talking cornerback in a violent way late in the first half. After Ramsey knocked Green to the ground at the end of a running play, Green grabbed Ramsey around the neck and slammed him to the ground.

As much as the dictates of the calendar occasionally present an opportunity for the NFL to air games on Christmas Day, the NBA rules Dec. 25 in the much same way in which Santa has dominion over the North Pole. In a bid to further underscore how televised basketball is now a holiday staple alongside more suspect traditions such as mistletoe, fruitcake and egg nog, ESPN and jolly old St.

Not only do Wilson and Baldwin trust each other to beat man looks instinctively, as New England found out last weekend, Seattle has Jimmy Graham. The tight end is 6 foot 7, 260 pounds and can leap like the basketball power forward he was at the University of Miami. No one in the NFL who can match that size in man coverage.

All McAdoo would tell reporters is, came in yesterday. We had a conversation that was personal upstairs and he came in today. Decided to leave.

Breaking down the pros and cons of the SkyCam, the Ringer’s Danny Heifetz argued it’s most useful during running plays. With the classic sideline view, “running backs make breaking through piles of lineman look like a magic trick,” he wrote. The SkyCam offers a blunt view of the linemen, allowing the viewer to see holes open for the running back to capitalize on..

But I understand why people in my workshop felt reluctant to admit a love of Hallmark Christmas movies. Entertainment made for women is devalued so easily and frequently that no one remembers “Sex and the City” had as much to do with the rise of HBO as “The Sopranos.” Even Netflix (creepily) judged its own viewers when it recently tweeted, “To the 53 people who’ve watched ‘A Christmas Prince’ every day for the past 18 days: Who hurt you?” Women are shamed for enjoying entertainment made for them, entertainment then labeled a “guilty pleasure,” and Hallmark Christmas movies have become a special punchline for being cheesy and formulaic. There is even a Twitter account dedicated to randomly generating Hallmark Christmas movie plots.

And that is exactly the way he likes it. His Cabinet members are implementing a hardline conservative agenda that is quietly reshaping America. His judicial appointments will remake jurisprudence for a generation to come. Second period was one of the better ones we have had in a good long time, Hamilton said. Game below their goal line was good. Our defencemen were really active, which we wanted them to be.

“I got a bunch of my friends this year who were freshman to come out,” he said. “I was like ‘Yeah, just come out and try it. This is what happened to me my freshman year, and look what’s happened now.’ And now they’re feeling the same way. Davis has not demonstrated much pride in what has taken place behind the scenes in his dealings with the Vikings and the NFL. Bank’s naming rights agreement for the new Vikings’ stadium, or the depth of the host committee’s freebies in bribing the NFL to bring the 2018 Super Bowl to Minneapolis. Bank to guard the details of the naming rights agreement, other than it further pokes holes in the Vikings’ storyline that the Wilf family has been a generous contributor to the new stadium that now has reached $1.075 billion in cost..

One of the men was thrown into the center lane. A state trooper spotted the wreckage and as he slowed to stop for the crash, he struck the body in the center lane, officials said. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene. He is learning another lesson in humility now. He may be given a stay of execution but FSG, Brendan and the fans know that anything short of success (Champions League commercial success and a trophy) will see his reign end! But with his demise FSG will also be held accountable and the honeymoon period they have enjoyed with the fans will be over. Their decision making and suitability as custodians of our club will be questioned and the turmoil and demonstrations that defined our club under previous American ownership may rear their ugly head.

It has been a whirlwind process for Shaquill, who wasn’t even originally invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.

Hopefully he can hold the fort. I’ve seen what putting in a young quarterback too fast can do, and you don’t want to ruin Beck in the short term.

Watson then found DeAndre Hopkins on an 8 yard pass before connecting with Will Fuller on a 16 yarder.Mariota had touchdown runs of 34 and 2 yards in the second quarter sandwiched around a field goal by Houston to cut the lead to 24 14.
