Not sure who these guys are, or why this happened, but just want to know why they allow an entire team to dress like referees. Even in soccer, that would seem to be confusing.
Are we close to the end of the Brett Favre/Jenn Sterger saga? If you believe TMZ (and who doesn’t these days?) Sterger provided the NFL with enough evidence to allow them to take swift action against the future Hall of Famer and likely end Favre’s career. Only time will tell.
Sterger, her attorney, and her manager Phil Reese met with NFL investigators today in NYC … and presented materials that Reese says go beyond what has been reported — penis photos and text messages sent to Sterger. Reese tells TMZ, “We expect action swiftly, but it’s in their hands now.”
Favre could be punished if the NFL finds he violated its personal conduct policy by sending inappropriate messages to Sterger … who was a NY Jets stadium reporter at the time.
Not much detail on this story, but interestingly enough he was arrested ON THE SAME CHARGES in Minnesota a few years ago, was never convicted of anything and was able to slide on down to Florida to start all over again.
The Palm Beach County School Board fired a high school coach accused of groping and biting two female students. Police arrested James Thaddies earlier this year after the girls came forward, and he was reassigned. His criminal case is still pending.
Before coaching football and track at Atlantic High School in Delray Beach, Thaddies was arrested for a similar crime in Minnesota. He was never convicted.

The things that cell phone videos catch these days. No doubt there have been coaches in the past who did things like that, but it was always hard to prove. Now, all some kid has to do is pull out a tiny cell phone, hit record and it’s all over but the lawsuit.
On the plus side, the coach admits he did it, in an attempt to “. . . save these young men from the destruction of self and what society has accepted and become silent to the issues our students are facing on a daily basis.”
Full story–and video–below from ESPN:
Three Murrah High School boys’ basketball players have sued their coach and the school system over alleged whippings. The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in federal court in Jackson by attorney Lisa Ross. Ross contends that a video clip shows a basketball player bent over as a man swings a belt, hitting him three times. The video was made available to media outlets in Jackson.
Ross said the man in the video, which was recorded on a cell phone, is boys’ basketball coach Marlon Dorsey. In the lawsuit, the unnamed players contend they were physically and verbally abused by Dorsey after running plays incorrectly, and were hit by a weight belt that weighed anywhere from five to 10 pounds.
Dorsey, who has admitted to what he calls “paddling” his players, has been on leave since late October. On Oct. 28, school and district officials met with about 30 parents about the matter, but there has been no official word from Jackson Public Schools on Dorsey’s status.
Five seniors from the Needham High School girls soccer team have been suspended as a result of an alleged hazing incident where younger players were blindfolded, lead around with dog leashes and then had pies thrown in their faces. Not the worst thing we’ve ever heard of in a HS hazing incident (no one shoved pine cones up anyone’s backsides) but it still violated the school’s–and the state’s–hazing policies.
Of course, the parents responded the way you would expect: they went to court to have an injunction filed against the school so the seniors could play in the state tournament. No acknowledgment of the violation of the rules, no apologies, just getting lawyered up. Fortunately, a judge didn’t see things their way, the parents lost their case and their little snowflakes got suspended and the team lost 7-1 in the tournament.
The moral to this story? If your school has a policy that says no hazing . . . THEN DON’T HAZE SOMEONE!
Five soccer players at a Needham, Mass., high school have been suspended after accusations of blindfolding younger teammates and dragging the girls along the field with dog leashes. The varsity players — four seniors and a freshman — reportedly concluded the Oct. 29 hazing incident by throwing pies in their teammates’ faces, according to local media. Their coach was put on leave for not reporting the incident immediately, the school told The Boston Globe.
On Tuesday, the suspended girls’ parents went to court seeking an injunction that would allow the girls to play in Tuesday night’s state tournament match, but a judge refused to overturn the school’s decision. Needham lost the match against Brockton High School 7-1. Documents filed Monday in Norfolk Superior Court said the allegations stemmed from “an initiation ritual of new team members” after the team advanced in the Bay State Conference, according to the Globe.
It wasn’t until a week later that players’ parents received an email from Needham High School principal Jonathan D. Pizzi, the court papers said. The email, sent last Friday, said the school was investigating “an alleged incident of serious misbehavior” and banned the team from practicing for the entire weekend.

This is the third video this week we’ve posted of a high school student streaking a football game. Did some super-secret message go out via Facebook to launch this onslaught of nudity? Or is stupidity just contagious?
Here’s the brief–and possibly slightly Not Safe For Work–video from the Palisades vs Fairfax High School game on 11/5/2010. If anyone knows the city/state where this took place, we’d like to know: BadJocks at Yahoo.com.
