Management for boxer Adrien Broner said the former four-division champion is OK, after he posted a series of messages on his various social media accounts that indicated he was contemplating suicide.I spoke to [boxing manager] Al Haymon; he said theres nothing to be concerned with here, Premier Boxing Champions spokesman Tim Smith told USA Today. Premier Boxing Champions is a TV series organized by Haymons management company.On Instagram on Wednesday, Broner posted a photo of a handgun with the caption, Im going home I love yall. Later, he posted to Instagram a photo that read: 3PM Im doing it Im sorry to my family and friends but I dont want to be here no more this s--- too much.Responding to worries about the Ohio natives well-being, Cincinnati Police tweeted that Broner is safe.Last month, felony assault and aggravated robbery charges against Broner were dropped when the accuser and star witness failed to show up at the Hamilton County courthouse in Ohio.Earlier in the year, the accuser dropped a civil lawsuit against Broner.The charges stemmed from an incident during the early-morning hours of Jan. 21, when Broner allegedly assaulted a man and robbed him of $12,000 at gunpoint outside of a Cincinnati bowling alley. Broner allegedly lost the money to the accuser during a night of high-stakes betting on bowling games, knocked him unconscious outside the bowling alley after a confrontation and took the money.After the bowling alley incident, Broner had two outstanding felony warrants issued for his arrest, but he still boxed in Washington, D.C., in a nationally televised fight on April 1 and knocked out Ashley Theophane in the ninth round -- one day after being stripped of his junior welterweight world title for failing to make the 140-pound weight limit.Though the charges were dropped, Broner did still serve 30 days in jail for being found in contempt of court after showing up three hours late to a scheduled courthouse appearance.Broner (32-2, 24 KOs), who has won world titles at junior lightweight, lightweight, junior welterweight and welterweight, returned to Cincinnati and turned himself in on April 4, as had been arranged between his attorney and Hamilton County officials a few days before the fight with Theophane. Broner was released later that day on $100,000 bond. He plead not guilty at his arraignment on April 5.Information from ESPNs Dan Rafael contributed to this report. Cheap Authentic Air Jordan . Denis Coderre, the former federal MP who was elected mayor on Nov. 3, has drawn the ire of some Montreal Canadiens. During last nights game he tweeted: "Hello? Can we get a one-way ticket to (minor-league) Hamilton for David Desharnais please. Wholesale Authentic Jordans . William Carrier opened the scoring for Cape Breton (6-4-2), but Andrew Ryan tied the game and Brent Andrews put the Mooseheads (8-6-0) in front for good with a short-handed goal at 13:49 of the second period. http://www.cheapairjordanfreeshipping.com/ . Down by seven with 90 seconds left in regulation, thats where they looked comfortable. Cheap Jordans For Sale . LOUIS -- Theres no telling how these wacky World Series games will end. Air Jordan From China . Didier Drogba gave away the penalty that put Senegal one goal away from a major upset, but the veteran striker will get another chance -- probably his last -- at the World Cup after Salomon Kalous injury-time strike sealed the Ivorians place in Brazil next year. PARIS -- There is no such thing as the beginning of an end. An end is just an end. However short, the period until that finality remains one of possibilities, as Wayne Rooney will prove.Taking their cue from interim manager Gareth Southgates decision to drop Rooney from Englands starting XI for its 2018 World Cup qualifying match against Slovenia on Tuesday, some observers are now prematurely digging the 30-year-olds footballing grave, predicting that his time is running out.It doesnt take a genius to argue that age, the wear-and-tear of nearly 700 appearances for clubs and country and the displacement of older players by younger ones will, in the not unforeseeable future, combine to permanently sideline Rooney. Like weathermen who predict rain, those now pointing to that writing on the wall are bound to be right, eventually.But there are compelling footballing and sentimental reasons to both hope and believe that between now and the inevitable, Rooney will still surprise.First, the football.It has for several seasons been clear to all, including Rooney, that he no longer has the scything speed that made him such a bulldog forward in his younger days and that he is increasingly struggling with footballs ever-quicker tempo, notably in Englands Premier League.But by recognizing and accepting a variety of retooled roles for himself in the England and United midfields and on their benches, Rooney has shown intelligence, pragmatism, adaptability and no shortage of guts. Embarking on what is, essentially, a second career further down the pitch was never going to smooth. It hasnt been made any easier by the unsettling managerial churn at both United and England.On off-days, Rooney looks ponderous and a brake on, not a creator of, attacking momentum for his teams, unable to play box-to-box for extended periods or create enough goal-scoring chances for others.But on good days, which he still has, Rooneys sweet passes, industry, tactical brains and leadership make him an undeniable asset. Even though Southgate and, at United, Jose Mourinho may no longer think first of Rooney, his enduring value is proven by the fact they still want him on their benches when not in their starting lineups.There is no shame in that. That the all-time top scorer and most-capped outfield player for England and soon-to be top scorer for United (he is just three goals shy of Bobby Charltons record off 249) is willing to play cameo roles is the mark of a player who puts the team before himself.ddddddddddddy sharing his experience with younger players and imposing his maturity on the dressing room, qualities that Southgate described as gold dust, and by shielding teammates from some of the intense media spotlight that so often unsettles the England team, Rooney can still chip in to its effort to qualify for the World Cup in Russia and shake off the disaster of being knocked out of the European Championship by Iceland this June.There is no embarrassment, Rooney said. Ill be ready to come off the bench if needed.On the sentimental side, Rooney stands as an example of how football can help polish rough kids from rough neighborhoods, of how the game offers opportunity for youngsters to better themselves and isnt solely defined by the corrupt officials who have soiled the sports reputation, at FIFA and elsewhere.The kid from a grim suburb of Liverpool, as thrilling as he was to watch with the ball at his feet, long disappointed as a person. His temper was short, his moods often foul, and the headlines he generated often bad. He stomped on Ricardo Carvalho (2006 World Cup, red card) and vented to pitch-side cameras (2010 World Cup; West Ham vs. Man United in 2011, two-match ban). His stock fell so low that the town of Edenbridge in Englands southeast burned a 30-foot effigy of Rooney in 2010, giving him the ears of cartoon ogre Shrek.In short, a very different character from the poised elder statesman who accepted Southgates decision to bench him against Slovenia with apparent good grace and insisted this was not the beginning of the end that some described it as.I understand this is part of football. It is something which you have to go through and I am big enough to deal with it, he said. I have said before that I will not stop playing for England and then think of going to Dubai for a few days in the international break. I will turn up when called upon and be ready.The fan of boxing may be down, but he is not out.---John Leicester is an international sports columnist for The Associated Press.
