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. A building is not cute; a movie cannot be ghastly; a book cannot be weird; a restaurant cannot be a darling.

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. Green then delivered numerous punches to Ramsey’s helmet never the smartest idea and put another MMA style choke hold on Ramsey.

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. The Dolphins, who were coming off impressive back to back victories over Denver.2. Those who don’t know history are bound to beat New England at home one week and lose in Buffalo the next week. So it goes with the Dolphins.

“Y’all have no idea how somebody’s supposed to behave after a loss,” he said. “Y’all have no idea if they can laugh, if that’s the right way to handle it. Y’all have no idea if I get (ticked) off and don’t want to talk to y’all, if that’s the right way to handle it.

Are still preparing for games, but time is not an issue here, Jackson said. Is about trying to get this organization right and get our vision squared away on what we are trying to accomplish here.

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..

It has been a whirlwind process for Shaquill, who wasn’t even originally invited to the NFL Scouting Combine. Almost overnight, he went from relative unknown to jet setting all across the country for 14 pre draft interviews and seven private workouts with various NFL teams. Griffin hired his agent, Andrew “Buddy” Baker from Exclusive Sports, shortly after the Cure Bowl in December..

Michael Platt, an energetic 12 year old from Bowie, is just like many other kids in his neighborhood. But he also has a passion for baking, which has brought him some television fame, money on the side, and a purpose to give back.

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. He’s a guy that I see as the Dolphins hope for the future.. 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. But Watson’s 1 yard touchdown scamper pushed Houston’s lead to 30 14 at halftime after the kick failed.Watson was 25 of 34 for 283 yards. Mariota threw for 96 yards and ran for 39 before he was injured.Watson found Fuller again in the third quarter on a 10 yard strike to make it 37 14.

I don think the players are totally to blame. I think the coaches who sit upstairs calling plays should take some of the blame. If it were me, i would be holding meetings, watching films and practice sessions. The New Orleans Saints are rolling with an eight game winning streak, but they’re just one game ahead of the in the NFC South. The Panthers have won three straight games and seem to have regained the swagger that carried them to the Super Bowl two seasons ago. Newton posted his best game of the season in the Panthers 45 21 win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 10, throwing for four touchdowns and rushing for a 95 yards..

She casually pops some Skittles into her mouth. “She’s a good girl and a good mother,” she continues. “All she cares about is being a mom to her kids.” After all, it’s what she learned from her own mom, who left a good life in Guayama, Puerto Rico, two decades ago for her children.

Five years ago. It feels like almost a lifetime ago and that how long it feels like. It not something that I really think about anymore, Karlsson said before facing the Penguins. “While I have not found that you directly contributed to the bounty pool, there is no serious question that you were aware of the pool and its elements, including that it provided rewards for cart offs. Indeed, Mr. [Jonathan] Vilma testified that Coach [Gregg] Williams brought the program to the team’s defensive leaders before the 2009 season and that you supported and endorsed it.

“On this team we’re going to keep choosing love over hate unity over division. That’s what it was to us in talking last night and this morning. You know, the few of us who linked arms just wanted to show a united front,” said Rodgers on Sunday. Le’Veon Bell is the best running back in the NFL even though he’s returning from core muscle surgery, held out and missed training camp. In today’s world where no starter plays much or even puts pads on for much of camp, don’t worry about Bell’s conditioning. The truth is, no one is in football shape yet.

“That was the plan going into this game. Every day, we’re going to do more and more and get him to the point where he feels like it’s 100 percent, where we’re back and we’re ready to go a certain amount of snaps that we’ll talk about throughout the season. The goal is to make sure he plays 16 plus games, and tonight was a good first step for us.”.

“Heck, no,” he said. “We want to go out there and dominate. We want to go out there and just score anytime we want. The 1997 NFL Coach of the Year, Jim Fassel, joins the UFL as Head Coach of the Las Vegas franchise. While head coach of the New York Giants, Fassel received acclaim for his playoff guarantee in the 2000 season and led the Giants to an improbable Super Bowl appearance. Fassel, most recently, was the color commentator on NFL game broadcasts for the Westwood One Radio Network and also served as a color analyst on ESPN..

So what makes an IPL franchise worth all the money? It is a combination of business and an ego trip. Whether it is football clubs in England or baseball teams in the United States, the decision to purchase a sports team is not always a rational one, driven by profit loss calculations alone. Often well heeled individuals or businessmen do it to announce their arrival.

Passionate. I found I don do things in small measures; I take big bites of my food, so to speak. During the broadcast, the game the thing, and I hope to paint the very best picture I can to bring every fan as close to the action as possible. A television monitor is adjacent to the pitch, a coach [manager] is allowed to challenge what he perceives to be an unfair call. The referee goes to the sideline and reviews the disputed decision, then returns to confirm or overturn the decision. Given the widespread use of slow motion televised replays, shown on big screens at matches, it is ridiculous to continue with the present system, when everybody knows when an error has been made, which may well determine the outcome of a game..

I not traded, I going to work my butt off here and whatever happens, happens, he said. Not going to hear me complain or nothing no more, I just going to be quiet and let everything fall in place.

Carolina remained unbeaten and sent Cowboy quarterback Tony Romo to the sidelines with another injury. The Panthers (11 0) returned two of Romo’s three interceptions for touchdowns as they stretched their NFL best winning streak to 15 regular season games with a 33 14 victory against the Cowboys (3 8). Romo injured the same left collarbone that cost him all seven games of a losing streak..

But what an honor. What an honor. I have a great opportunity and am pumped to be a Chief.. Davis had 11 carries outside of that one possession. Only one of those 11 carries could be characterized as a successful play as he rushed for 12 yards on a first down play in the third quarter. Seven other carries resulted in no gain or lost yardage, meaning Seattle would have been better off simply spiking the ball.

He played with the captain; he played with the since traded Mark Letestu. He played both wings, on the power play some, killing penalties some. He only had three games with more than a single point.. Final NFL Power Rankings14. Houston Texans (9 7)The Texans fell just short in their playoff bid but set a franchise record with 34 takeaways.

Murray said he’d worked with a company in California to develop the website. He’s also doing a bit of free promotional work on Instagram for a fitness app backed by Corcoran graduate Jo Lonn Dunbar. Murray allowed a crew to film him working out and use the footage in a video about the app.

They not going to try to trade JG if he lays an egg tommorow. It might make them more inclined to tag him. If they tag him, they will decide if they want to extend him after next season.. Apparently, Renney has recognized this potential problem and has decided to keep his top two lines primarily intact for power plays. That will make it easier for him (although certainly not easy) to continue rolling his lines after the power play is over. You might think that I’m being hyper sensitive here, but these little things make a big difference in a long season and an even longer (in some respects!) playoff tournament..

Can figure it out, Aldridge said. Just got to come out with the intensity that we have in the second half in the first half. We just got to find ways to get ourselves going early. “You only win a few of these really big ones, so I tried to ignore that. “I went running after work this morning. A voice in my head kept saying, “Do you believe it can happen?” As a trainer I’ve run in a zillion races, I keep those voices out of my head,” said Tom Amoss, Lone Sailor’s trainer.

Stick or twist with the manager and the transfer committee? The success of this decision will govern the perception of how fans view the organization. Make the wrong choice and the vitriol will really begin, through social media, press outlets, on the streets and most important in attendances and merchandising. If the season had continued any longer more and more empty seats would’ve appeared as happened at the end of Kenny’s reign.

In this April 6, 2016, file photo, Nick Faldo watches his tee shot on the sixth hole during the par three competition at the Masters golf tournament in Augusta, Ga. Faldo wanted his “Faldo Series” to have a global reach, and he thought he achieved that in 2017 when he took four juniors from his program to South Africa to play against four juniors from the Ernie Els Fancourt Foundation. Turns out that was just the start.

The release does say groundbreaking won’t take place until all dollars are committed for the $45 million structure. With $34 million now raised, that presumably means there’s $11 million to go.

Then they got hot from beyond the arc.Jordan Caroline would come up with a steal and pass ahead to walk on Charley Tooley who hit three pointer to get Nevada within 11 points. That followed by five consecutive three pointers, four from Marcus Marshall and one from Caroline.

Stevens wasted little time before turning to Horford as the point guard. Midway through the first quarter, the Celtics went with a lineup of him, Semi Ojeleye, Abdel Nader, Marcus Morris and Jayson Tatum. The Point Horford group didn’t set the world ablaze, but his ability to play the position was invaluable on a night the Celtics essentially had one healthy point guard in Terry Rozier (Stevens has been reluctant to use two way guard Kadeem Allen).

Keep it short. People don’t have time to read long newsletters. It is better to keep it brief if you want it to be read.8. “This is the ideal situation we had talked about. This is exactly what I wanted. And all three guys played to their abilities,” Ryan said, upon announcing he intends to spend Sunday having a lengthy discussion with his staff to determine whether Manuel, Tyrod Taylor or Matt Cassel will be the team’s season opening starter.

New Orleans is unlike other American cities in that it has a definitive cuisine shaped by 300 years of overlapping cultures.

BCE filed an appeal in March and the Federal Court agreed to hear it, granting the NFL permission to have a say in support of Bell arguments.CRTC chairman Jean Pierre Blais announced the ban last January in a decision related to a hearing into the future of television in the digital age. But in the November notice, the CRTC argued it has only signalled its intention to disallow ad substitution during the Super Bowl. Currently, Bell requires that cable companies carrying American stations broadcasting the program in Canada substitute CTV signal and advertisements since the station holds the exclusive Canadian rights.

“People said Carl was lazy,” Matsuhara said. “I said, ‘What are you talking about?'” He’s goes at one speed and it’s fast. He doesn’t change gears. As for Davis, a running back who won two Super Bowls with the Denver Broncos, he wasn sure if this would be his year. It was his 11th year of eligibility and third year as a finalist. He had the feeling he was getting close, but with Tomlinson on the ballot, he had started looking ahead to 2018..
