Josh Brown told the world he was a hopelessly arrogant abuser that August day when he said he was not OK with the decision the NFL had made in benching him one game for assaulting his wife.Brown knew he had already admitted in documents not yet released that he had physically, verbally, and emotionally abused my wife, and that hed viewed her as my slave, yet the New York Giants kicker had a problem with the league suspending him for one single solitary Sunday. In fact, Brown said he was uncomfortable with Roger Goodells broad powers under the personal conduct policy.Yes, a man whose now-former wife claimed hed abused her more than 20 times was uncomfortable with the commissioners authority to discipline him for it.If Giants officials were paying close attention, this was the day they shouldve been really worried about Brown, and his alleged commitment to the cause of becoming a better human being. Maybe those remarks made them wonder whether theyd gambled on the wrong guy, maybe not. Either way, they lost their gamble in a staggering way and left owner John Maras standing as the leagues moral compass looking as if it had been hit by a truck.Mara has always been very good at cleaning up Goodells messes, following the commissioners wayward rulings and news conference fumbles with some thoughtful and articulate spin. But this time, Mara himself made the mess long before he told WFAN, the radio station carrying Giants games, that the kicker had admitted to us that hes abused his wife in the past.The Giants knew Brown had been involved in two heated incidents -- not one, but two -- with his former wife, Molly Brown, when they decided to bring back their free agent on a two-year, $4 million contract. They knew not only of Browns 2015 arrest on domestic violence but also of a confrontation at the Pro Bowl that unfolded less than three months before the Giants signed their kicker to the new deal. Molly Brown alleged that her husband was drunk and pounding on her hotel room door before NFL security helped clear him from the area and moved her and her children to a new room.When Mara spoke in August about the decision to sign Brown, he did not mention the Pro Bowl incident. Nobody with the Giants mentioned it. If they figured the story would never surface, they gambled and guessed wrong again. A lot of times there is a tendency to try to make these cases black and white, Mara said that day. They are very rarely black and white; you very rarely have a Ray Rice video.Theres been no Josh Brown video to date, but the newly released documents are as black and white as can be. The Giants decided to keep employing a man whose former wife quoted him as saying that women like me get hit because we cant shut up.Now the NFL wants a do-over on its investigation, this after blaming its pathetic one-game penalty on a King County (Washington) Sheriffs Office that denied the leagues past requests for all documents relevant to the case. The sheriff, John Urquhart, responded by portraying league investigators as Inspector Clouseau-like bunglers (surprise, surprise) in an interview with Seattle radio station KIRO, saying he wouldve given them an off-the-record heads-up on the depth of Browns admissions had they properly identified themselves as working for, you know, the NFL.The Giants? Their statement announcing that Brown would not be boarding the plane to London for the game with the Rams, and that his status will be revisited after the team returns home, included the reminder that Brown has acknowledged his issues through extended therapy and counseling.We remain supportive of Josh and his efforts, the statement said. The Giants didnt say anything about being supportive of their employees victim. These football teams never say much about the victims, do they?Were not going to turn our back on Josh, Giants coach Ben McAdoo said Friday in London.Thats exactly what his team should do, however. Although the Giants have long been held up as a model of stability and right-minded thinking in the worlds most volatile marketplace, Brown isnt their first hire with a domestic violence past. In 1997 they brought in Christian Peter, who had a long history of violence against women. The next year, mere weeks after the girlfriend whom Tito Wooten allegedly choked and punched committed suicide in Wootens garage, the Giants gave the defensive back an $8 million deal.Mara wasnt at the very top of the organization then, but he sure is now. And frankly, of all the New York sports owners Ive covered over 30 years, Mara is the one I wouldve picked above all others to make an ethical choice in a critical situation.No more. Its not a pleasant thing to type, but the truth often isnt. Mara said over the summer that he has to answer to his four daughters and seven sisters. What does he tell them now about re-signing a repeat abuser who describes himself as repulsive?What Mara should tell them, of course, is that he made a terrible mistake and that Josh Brown will never take another kick in a Giants uniform. He should tell them he feels as foolish as owner Jerry Jones now feels for making Greg Hardy a Cowboy. He should tell them that, for the rest of his life, the franchise will embrace a legitimate zero-tolerance policy on domestic violence for all employees and not the fake zero-tolerance policy that Mara and McAdoo talked about before this disastrous turn of events. He should tell them hes sorry for dishonoring the family business. Goodell couldve helped out Mara, one of his fiercest advocates, by hiring more competent investigators, and by dropping a six-game hammer on Brown in August. But this one isnt about the commissioner. This one is about the team owner who must realize that his role in investigating Goodells handling of the Ray Rice case now seems absurd.But since football people love to talk about turning negatives into positives, lets give it a shot here. NFL owners mightve learned a useful lesson in the Josh Brown case. They saw what happened to John Mara, of all people, and to the New York Giants, of all teams. If they can get shredded for suiting up an abuser, anyone can get shredded for it.So this is the overriding hope in the months and seasons to come, that owners will tell their coaches, scouts and executives that they are not to recommend for employment any man who has inappropriately touched a woman once, never mind twice or more. If Maras dreadful mistake scares his peers straight, the NFL might finally become a more humane and dignified place to play.? Ofertas Zapatillas Nike Outlet .

But now that hes in the NHL, the Calgary Flames centre showed big improvement in that department by scoring the winner in the eighth round of a 5-4 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday. CHICAGO -- Back with his original big league team, Coco Crisp has become a serial hitter for the Cleveland Indians this October.Crisp came off the bench and singled home the only run in the seventh inning Friday night, giving the Indians a 1-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs and a 2-1 lead in the World Series.With just two more wins, the Indians would take their first title since 1948.Ive been getting text messages, and my phones been blowing up, Crisp said . I dont think Ive had more than three or four text messages at a time after a game prior to the playoffs, and now its like 30, 40. Everybody is kind of saying it, `Two wins away! Two more!A son of boxer Loyce Sugar Crisp, Covelli Crisp was first given the nickname Coco by his younger sister Sheileah, who grew up to become a figure skater. When they were kids, she thought he resembled a cartoon character with big ears on the cover of a container of Cocoa Krispies cereal.He listed it as his childhood nickname on a questionnaire when he was at Double-A in 2002, and a teammate found out about it and told the ballpark public address announcer. Crisp was flustered, got a hit and decided he had been over-focusing, so he stuck with Coco, he told the MANjr website five years ago.Now Im stuck with the name that started off as a joke! he told the website. Its still kind of a joke, but Ive accepted it. Its cool now.Cleveland reacquired him from Oakland for depth on Aug. 31, a waiver deal completed just in time for Crisp to be eligible for the postseason with the Indians.The way things have turned out, hes become a key cog in their pursuit of a championship.Crisps two-run homer over Fenway Parks Green Monster in the sixth inning opened a three-run lead against Boston, and the Indians held on for a 4-3 win that completed a Division Series sweep. His fourth-inning solo shot drove in Clevelands final run in Game 5 of the AL Championship Series against Toronto as the IIndians won their first pennant since 1997.dddddddddddd`Cleveland against the world. Thats kind of been the motto, he said. To be in this situation with the team that I broke in with is a very special feeling for me.Known for speed in his younger days, Crisp topped the AL with 49 steals in 2011. As his 37th birthday approaches Tuesday, the switch-hitter is far closer to the end of his career than the start.Originally drafted by St. Louis in 1999, he was acquired by Cleveland three years later, made his debut with the Indians in 2002 and played for Cleveland through 2005. He moved on to Boston (2006-08), Kansas City (2009) and Oakland (2010-16) but bristled when the Athletics limited his playing time this year, a move that denied him the plate appearances necessary for his $13 million 2017 option to become guaranteed.With the World Series tied 1-all and Game 3 scoreless, Crisp pinch hit for reliever Andrew Miller in the seventh inning with one out and runners at the corners. Cubs manager Joe Maddon decided to stay with Carl Edwards Jr. rather than bring in left-hander Mike Montgomery, a move that would have prompted Cleveland counterpart Terry Francona to replace Crisp with Brandon Guyer.We liked that matchup, Maddon said. You have to pick your poison right there. It just didnt work out.Crisp lined a 92 mph fastball from Edwards into short right field, sending pinch-runner Michael Martinez home from third.Went over the scouting report before I went up there, and I know he has some natural cut to his fastball, Crisp said. I was hoping to get the barrel to it, and I did. It cut in on me and I was fortunate enough that it was able to drop in front of the fielder.Francona was relieved.Hes done that all year, the manager said. We needed something, anything, just to put a run across. ' ' '
