This statement makes you sound like a real POS Riff-Raff. It was his son man! Every parent would favor the best interest of their child's health.
Weeden repeated what he said before the draft about how being 28 makes him more mature than other players and Weeden thinks that will help him transition to the NFL. While Weeden never went so far as laying claim to the starting quarterback job, he did say that he’s up to the task.
“I feel like I’m ready,” Weeden said, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “I have a long way to go, but I feel like I’ve taken the right steps to get to where I can play at that level. If I’m asked to be the guy day one, I’m going to do everything on my part to put our team in position to win games and score points. I’m really anxious to get going and the season will be here before you know it.”
The Browns haven’t given much indication about how playing time will shake out when the whole team gathers for work, but they didn’t use a first round pick on Weeden so that he could carry a clipboard. Whether it is because of Weeden’s ability, Colt McCoy’s father or some other combination of factors, Weeden’s going to be starting for the Browns sooner rather than later.
The Cleveland Browns were awarded punter Spencer Lanning off waivers from Jacksonville.
He was a four-year letterman at the University of South Carolina (2007-10) who finished his career with 171 punts for a 42.6-yard average and 46 punts inside the 20-yard line. He also served as kicker during his final two collegiate seasons, connecting on 34 of 44 field goal attempts and 80 of 84 PATs.
A native of Rock Hill, South Carolina, the 5-11, 200-pound Lanning attended York High School in South Carolina. He was born May 21, 1988.
WOW A Free agent signing by Heckert
One afternoon a wealthy lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the roadside eating grass.
Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and got out to investigate. He asked one man, "Why are you eating grass?"
"We don't have any money for food," the poor man replied. "We have to eat grass."
"Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I'll feed you," the lawyer said.
"But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there, under that tree."
"Bring them along," the lawyer replied.
Turning to the other poor man he stated, "You come with us also."
The second man, in a pitiful voice then said, "But sir, I also have a wife and SIX children with me!"
"Bring them all, as well," the lawyer answered.
They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine. Once underway, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer and said, "Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you."
The lawyer replied, "Glad to do it. You'll really love my place; the grass is almost a foot high
One of the grievances filed by the NFLPA attaches as exhibits the four letters sent by Commissioner Roger Goodell to the individual players who have been suspended.
The letter to former Saints linebacker Scott Fujita makes clear that he is accused only of pledging a “significant amount of money” to the broader pay-for-performance/bounty pool. The pool paid out money both for big plays and “cart-offs” and “knockouts.”
While Goodell’s letter to Fujita states that the pool “paid large cash rewards for ‘cart-offs’ and ‘knockouts,’” the NFL still has produced no specific evidence that anyone received any payment for players being carted off and/or knocked out of games. (That’s possibly because the only player carted off of any Saints game from 2009 through 2011 was Saints running back Reggie Bush, who broke a leg against the 49ers in 2010.) Absent such evidence, Fujita merely contributed to a pool of money that was paid out to players who intercepted passes, forced fumbles, etc.
If that’s the case, Fujita’s three-game suspension seems a little excessive, especially without specific evidence of the “significant amount” of money he supposedly contributed.
TONY STEWART ADJUSTS COMPETITION SCHEDULE TO TACKLE OUTLAWS AT ELDORA
Track Owner and Reigning NASCAR Cup Series Champion Has Goal to Beat WoO Teams on his Home Turf
ROSSBURG, Ohio (May 4) – Tony Stewart’s accomplishments at Eldora Speedway are impressive, but his goals are not complete. The reigning and three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion and current owner of Eldora Speedway has entered Eldora’s fabled Victory Lane as a winner in Late Models, Winged Sprint Cars, Non-Winged Sprint Cars, a Modified, a Midget and three times in the charity driven Prelude to the Dream – but never in a World of Outlaws (WoO) Sprint Car sanctioned event.
With the travelling WoO at Eldora for the Outlaw Thunder by Goodyear this weekend, Stewart has adjusted his busy competition schedule to make every possible effort to fly into Rossburg, Ohio both nights with the goal of not only challenging, but beating the WoO stars and other invaders in their own game.
Only one of two things could possibly deter Stewart from getting into Ohio – a delay in the NASCAR schedule at Talladega or flight issues due to weather.
Other than that Stewart is ‘game-on’ and ready to return to his passion of grassroots racing.
His competition is formidable with the WoO in the midst of an intense point battle that include two Stewart owned teams (Donny Schatz and Steve Kinser) in the top five. Sammy Swindell carries a seven point margin to lead the series into the Goodyear sponsored weekend.
Joining Stewart as challengers against the touring WoO teams will be the likes of Tim Shaffer, Dale Blaney, Stevie Smith, Jac Haudenschild and Paul McMahan with two complete nights of racing slated for the .500 mile clay oval each evening.
A doubleheader program each night will feature the Eldora Stock Cars on Friday and the UMP DIRTcar Modifieds on Saturday, as those two divisions continue their points chase and earn a position in the Feed The Children Prelude to the Dream invitational on June 6.
Tickets for the Outlaw Thunder by Goodyear, the Kings Royal weekend, and all other Eldora events are available through the track office at (937) 338-3815 or online 24 hours a day at www.EldoraSpeedway.com.
