Specifically, Section 8.13 authorizes the Commissioner to determine that an owner ‘has been or is guilty of conduct detrimental to the welfare of the League or professional football.’ If the Commissioner believes the available sanction (a $500,000 fine) is ‘not adequate or sufficient,’ the Commissioner may refer the issue to the NFL’s Executive Committee, which has the power to compel ‘[c]ancellation Adam Lind Jersey or forfeiture of the franchise in the League of any member club involved or implicated,’ with a directive to sell the team.

Amazon will charge advertisers $2.8 million for an OTT ad package around its 10 Thursday night games, Reuters revealed on Thursday. Amazon paid $50 million for the non-exclusive rights to NFL games starting this season, nudging aside Twitter, which had paid $10 million to stream Thursday night NFL games last season.

There has been a dramatic shift, Kraft said at Cannes Lions, speaking as part of an interview with WPP Group CEO Martin Sorrell. This year we’re with Amazon and for us the future is OTT.

Kraft continued: We’ll be very interested to see how Amazon goes as it’s behind the paywall. The thing we have to be careful of is millennials. They don’t watch TV, they don’t have TVs or subscribe to cable. So we have to bring that audience in. Partly it’s done through fantasy games and linking to that. Over-the-top is a great opportunity.

Amazon will air the games to members of its $99-a-year subscription service, Amazon Prime Video.

Kraft said he would also like to see the NFL expand internationally, a goal that the league has yet to fully realize, he noted.

NFL owners have made millions off obscure tax break

The tax code has been very, very good to sports team owners.
Reebok NHL Men's Mikael Granlund Green Authentic Jersey - #64 Minnesota Wild 2016 Stadium Series
A little-known tweak to IRS rules in 2004 has allowed new owners to write off nearly all of the purchase Authentic Michael Crabtree Jersey price of their teams against profits over 15 years.

Authentic Marcus Martin Jersey Today, with sports franchise values soaring, some think the tax break should be taken away.

It’s absolutely fiction, Fort said about the 2004 law. There is no depreciation for which owners bear costs.

The logic to getting rid of the law is straightforward and compelling, especially with the growing belief we should not be giving tax breaks to billionaires, Fort said.

Maybe times have changed enough that changing the law might have more traction, Fort said.

The NFL, in the middle of a scuffle with Trump, pointed out that no special tax provision or advantage applies to the NFL alone.


But with the teams with the highest franchise values, the league has the most to lose.

The Bills did not return calls.

And yet kickoff time is suddenly a major factor in the game.

The NFL moved the Bengals-Ravens game and several others from 1 p.m. to 4:25 p.m. to lessen the possibility of matchups becoming meaningless as the day wears on, a fact John Harbaugh did not appreciate, even if he understands the reasoning.
Game Taylor Lewan Jersey
The Ravens are 16-7 at home in December since Harbaugh took over in 2008, winning the past five games by a combined score of 152-85. Baltimore intends to bolster those numbers against the struggling Bengals, who snapped a three-game skid by defeating Detroit at home Sunday.

We know what’s ahead of us, and we know what’s at stake, Ravens safety Tony Jefferson said. We’re excited about the opportunity. It is always good when your future is in your own hands. We just have to go out and get this one last win, and we are in the dance.

This would have been Deshaun Watson’s award if the Houston quarterback hadn’t gotten hurt.

Brady’s Hall of Fame bona fides might seem blindingly obvious, but I want to take a moment to appreciate just how special he is. Brady is a once-in-a-lifetime type of person. You can rattle off the career marks that will likely never be matched: he has the most playoff wins ever for a quarterback (26 and counting), is the all-time leader in playoff passing yards (9,431), playoff passing touchdowns (66) and playoff completions (866) and is the oldest player (40 years old) to ever lead the NFL in passing yards.

And, of course, there are the five Super Bowl rings and seven Super Bowl appearances. He’s a grinder. I remember when I brought him to the East-West Shrine Game in Palo Alto, California, before he was drafted; he really stood out, but there were also clear areas for improvement. So for him to develop into the force that he’s become, despite not being the most talented guy, athletically speaking, shows you just how determined he was. He works so hard to understand the defense and maximize his opportunities, and that’s what has led to his greatness.

But with the Chiefs locked into the No. 4 seed in the AFC playoffs, Mahomes gets his first NFL start Sunday, providing what could be a sneak preview for next season and beyond. Smith remains under contract for next season but the Chiefs are expected by many to turn to Mahomes as their 2018 starter, making Smith potentially available this coming offseason.

His placement on the all-time rushing lists might be a bit higher if he’d stayed healthy and on the field more, but you just cannot ignore the kind of production he put up with the Vikings, often serving as that team’s only offensive weapon during his time there. He’s also just one of seven players in the 2,000-yard club — four of whom are in Canton.

Offensive rookie of the year: Kareem Hunt, RB, Chiefs … There is support for New Orleans running back Alvin Kamara. But the choice here is Hunt, the league’s second-leading rusher entering Sunday’s play.

Defensive Rookie of the Year: Marshon Lattimore, CB, Saints … The Saints don’t sweep the two rookie of the year awards. But they do get the top defensive rookie in Lattimore, who quickly has become an elite NFL cornerback and leads all rookies with five interceptions.chargers_079

After not practicing Thursday, Hogan was ruled out Friday due to his shoulder injury.

New England has had numerous injuries to its receiving corps this season and has supplemented some of that with James White and Rex Burkhead (see below), who are both solid receivers out of the backfield.

Look at Georgetown, which has gone 10-0 against truly terrible smaller-conference foes, beaten DePaul and St. John’s (twice), and lost to Syracuse and four quality Big East teams. If we took the Hoyas out of D1 entirely, how would college basketball’s rankings change? Not at all! On the other hand, consider UMass, which has beaten Providence and Georgia yet lost to Quinnipiac and George Mason. Those surprises add unexpected information and connections to the network, so the Minutemen, though 10-10, are quite important in determining how all teams rank.
Elite Kids Jakub Zboril Jersey
Before kickoff of the first NFL game on Sunday morning, the majority of players for both the Jacksonville Jaguars and Baltimore Ravens, along with some staff and owners, locked arms and knelt during the anthem. Similar protests were expected in stadiums across the country.

If and when that happens, Trump is urging fans to vote with their pocketbooks and Alexander Radulov Jersey to register their displeasure by not going to games. It has become a battle of wills 锟斤拷 a war in which, for once, there may actually be a winner. If NFL players do suddenly kneel in larger numbers, Trump will push the boycott and try to pressure the league economically. If players continue to kneel and the league doesn’t really pay a price and/or Trump backs off, Trump will look weak. If NFL players stop kneeling (which seems very unlikely) or the league distances itself from these protests, Trump will look like he won.
Elite Kids Matthias Farley Jersey
Just as football players kneeling during the national anthem today must repeatedly insist that they are not protesting the flag, Parks and the Greensboro students had to fight against efforts to play down the stakes of their protests. Parks’s action was not about a seat in the front of the bus. It was about Jim Crow, a legal and social system of degradation.

With Gronkowski suspended for Week 14 in Miami, Brady played his worst game of the season and one of the worst games of his career.

During the national anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the national anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.

I’ve been part of many dramatic finishes in my NFL career, including painful ones such as Super Bowl XXXIV, in which Kevin Dyson was tackled at the half-yard line as time expired when the Titans lost to the Rams. When I was Vikings GM, we won a playoff game in New York over the Giants that included an onside kick recovery and a last-second field goal.

It wasn’t in the playoffs, but another memorable finish occurred early in my Vikings career at old Met Stadium in 1980, when a Tommy Kramer-to-Ahmad Rashad Hail Mary beat the Browns and clinched a division title.

He completed 6 of 17 passes when blitzed, Robinson said, as receivers failed to shake man-to-man coverage. There wasn’t any quick outlets to get the ball out of his hand, Robinson said. The Dolphins’ defense also forced Brady to make deep sideline passes, perhaps the weakest part of his game.

Brady did not appear on the Patriots’ injury report Tuesday, a first since his Achilles’ injury surfaced. For the nitpicking that can justifiably be done about Brady’s performance with the injury, the Patriots went 4-1 in those games, including a victory at Pittsburgh in which Brady was sublime, particularly on a final drive heavily featuring Gronkowski.

Using the estimate that 31 points in point differential equates to a win, Cousins’s performance is contributing 2.5 wins over a 16-game season, worth approximately $35.6 million on the open market based on what teams must pay replacement-level players (between $480,000 and $1,015,000, depending on his experience), the amount a team spends above and beyond those minimum contracts for a 53-man roster ($115 million) and the number of wins it takes to go from replacement-level to league average (eight, assuming a replacement-level team would have zero wins).

We’ll go back and see how things look tomorrow and see how things look Tuesday, Auriemma said about Samuelson.

Make a decision if she’ll go Wednesday or not. She’s had issues on that side for a long time, dating back to high school. It’s something we’ll have to manage the rest of the season. I hope it doesn’t keep her out anymore. She’s never going to have a time this year she’s 100 percent.

Green and Ramsey got the Week 9 unpleasantries started when they tangled in the second quarter of Cincinnati’s 23-7 loss at Jacksonville. Ramsey gave Green a shove after a play had ended, and the star wide receiver responded by grabbing the cornerback around the neck from behind, slinging him to the ground and throwing a couple of punches.

After the game, Green told reporters he was tired of taking cheap shots from Ramsey, but he expressed regret over his actions. As a player, as a man, as a father, it’s a reflection of me, Green said (via cincinnati.com).

Limited Youth Star Lotulelei Jersey I Sam Gagner Jersey should have just walked off in that whole situation. It got the best of me today. But I’ll definitely learn from the experience. It’s never going to happen again.

Head coach, GM — f— out of here. I ain’t no f—boy. After all this, you’re going to try to come shake my hand? Come on now. Don’t try me. Don’t do me like that. If you’re going to do me like that, that’s crazy.

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone told me that I don’t a have a bitterness about his own ending in Buffalo and said he’s happy for the Bills, who ended their lengthy playoff drought three years after Marrone opted out of his contract.

For Dareus, who clearly was having some fun with the situation this week, it’s evident some feelings are still a little raw months after his unexpected reunion with Marrone.

The Wolves snapped a two-game skid.

“If you’re in this league, you’re a great player,” coach Tom Thibodeau said. “So when someone’s out, it’s an opportunity for someone else to step in. As long as we play hard, we feel like we’re going to have a chance to win every night.”

Kyle Lowry led Toronto with a season-high 40 points on 14-for-25 shooting, including 6 of 10 from behind the arc.

Towns had three early fouls and no shot attempts in eight first-half minutes, and the Raptors looked primed for their third straight win. But Towns finally got going after halftime, scoring 12 of the Timberwolves’ first 21 points, and Minnesota outscored the Raptors 33-21 in the quarter en route to snapping their two-game winning streak.

As for what he hoped to achieve with his halftime show, Timberlake said it would be a success if it “feels like it unifies.” That would be the “ultimate accomplishment,” he told Tirico, before joking that he also wanted veteran “SNF” announcer Al Michaels to join everyone else in “shaking their booty.”

Andrew Wiggins scored 29 points, Towns had all 22 of his points in the second half and the Wolves rallied from 11 down to beat the Toronto Raptors 115-109 on Saturday night.

“We’ve got a lot of guys that know how to play,” Wiggins said. “That’s the NBA for you. Someone’s injured, the next person just steps up. We have a good team, a lot of guys that can step up and make plays.”

With Butler out with a sore knee and Towns in foul trouble, Wiggins almost single-handedly kept the Wolves in it with 22 first-half points. In the second half, the Wolves got big minutes from Marcus Georges-Hunt (12 points), Gorgui Dieng and Tyus Jones (nine points apiece) and the seldom-used Shabazz Muhammad (seven points). The Wolves bench outscored Toronto’s 37-39.patriots_036_28860665926e528d-180x180

A couple minutes into the fourth quarter and it was now only 17-14 Vikings. The air had gone out of what had been a rollicking U.S. Bank Stadium. Instead of the 119.8 decibels these fans were registering on the scoreboard at points of this game, you could sense a queasy sports-fan version of post-traumatic stress disorder.

The Vikings drove for a field goal — a 53-yarder by Kai Forbath — but left too much time on the clock. Brees got the ball all the way to midfield before missing on three straight passes to Michael Thomas. Then he completed a fourth-and-10 pass to Willie Snead, which led to a field goal with 25 seconds left, which led to the loss of all Vikings’ hope.
Terrance Williams Kids Jersey
Finally, one thing to keep and eye on in this game is how the Vikings react to playing outdoors. They’ve only played outdoors once since Dec. 11 and they didn’t even get to practice outside this week because coach Mike Zimmer didn’t like the look of the team’s outdoor field.
Limited Mens Dennis Smith Jersey
The (outdoor practice) field wasn’t in good enough shape, Zimmer said, via the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

That might not sound like a big deal, but another indoor team (the Falcons) definitely had trouble last week playing on the slippery surface at Lincoln Financial Field. The surface was so bad that the Eagles have brought a new one in for Sunday’s game.

For the second week in a row the Eagles are an underdog at home. Although they knocked off the Falcons in the divisional round, CBSSports.com senior NFL writer Pete Prisco doesn’t see Philly advancing to Super Bowl LII.

With the end of the NFL regular season comes the start of the coaching carousel.

Right now, six head coaching jobs are open, and there could be more on the way depending on circumstances. For those teams, the main focus is on narrowing down candidates and setting up interviews.
Men's Adidas New York Rangers #36 Mats Zuccarello Premier Green Salute to Service NHL Jersey
Youth Jason Taylor Jersey Of course, not every job is going to get filled right away. Some of the hottest coaching candidates are coordinators for playoff teams, and they only have a limited window to interview during the week before preparing for their games. Other candidates aren’t in the postseason but will likely take time to explore their options. For the most part, teams will want a new head coach in place by the end of January before free agency and the draft-scouting process really heats up.

But first, let’s examine the head coaching jobs available and rank which ones are the most appealing. This list largely factors in current talent level, potential for growth, and how well equipped the team is to win in 2018 and beyond.

Youth Janoris Jenkins Jersey Why it’s available: Ben McAdoo didn’t even get a full season’s afterglow after leading New York to an 11-5 record and a playoff berth in 2016. Poor performances on the field and reports of instability off Womens Scott Tolzien Jersey it left the second-year head coach twisting in the wind with a team that had no interest in playing under him. The result? The franchise’s worst record since 1974 and a midseason firing that left Steve Spagnuolo to pick up the pieces as interim head coach.

Thanks to uniform leadership at AFN, our comptroller and legal team, we were able to turn on one channel based on operational necessity and FY17 funds had already been paid on the contract, White said in a release. The sports channel was turned on because it doesn’t cost any more money or manpower to manage a second channel.

New England takes on Jacksonville in the AFC championship, and Minnesota faces Philadelphia in the NFC championship.

We appreciate the efforts of everyone who made it possible for our brave service members around the world to get a taste of home and enjoy today’s games, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said in an email.
