Warren Moon on leave from Seahawks broadcast amid sexual harassment allegation

Warren Moon is facing serious sexual harassment allegations from a California woman who worked for his sports marketing firm.

The Hall of Fame quarterback has been working as a color commentator for the Seahawks radio network, but has requested a leave of absence. Moon, who spent 17 years in the NFL after winning five Grey Cups in a six-year CFL stint, has denied the allegations.

He was accused of sexual harassment in 1995 by a Vikings cheerleader and settled out of court. He was arrested later that year following a domestic incident with his wife, Felicia, who accused Moon of slapping and choking her. Moon was later acquitted when his wife told a jury she provoked the fight. The couple divorced in 2001 to end a 20-year marriage.

“This coach has decided, he has told you Giant fans, he has told you New York that in his football wisdom Geno Smith gives him the best chance to win this week, not Eli Manning,” Francesa said on WFAN.

Manning had started 210 consecutive games prior to this week, which was second all-time to Packers great Brett Favre. He has thrown for more than 50,000 yards and won two Super Bowls in which he was the MVP of both.

Francesa was not a fan of the move and he chalked it up to McAdoo’s failures as a coach and the knowledge that he is on the hot seat.

“This is a desperate move by a desperate guy who is clinging, clinging,” Francesa said. “And the fact that John Mara has not separated himself from this fool is hard to believe.”

Staal was able to push the puck through Jones’ skates for a 3-0 Wild lead.

Brock Nelson, Andrew Ladd and John Tavares scored goals for the Islanders, who built a 3-0 lead early in the second period and ended Washington’s four-game winning streak. The Islanders killed off both Washington power plays and snapped a seven-game stretch that saw them surrender one or more power-play goals.

The Islanders (17-10-3) extended their home record to 9-1-2, while Washington (18-12-1) fell to 6-7-1 on the road.

My daughter wakes up from her nap. “Can I watch football too, Daddy?” she says. My heart gushes. I doubt that this is anything approaching an original thought, but I think the reason I’m so madly in love with my daughter is that she’s a little copy of the woman I love the most, but with flashes of my own DNA. So she’s a combination of my most selfless love with the egotistical love I have for myself, and those feelings happening at the same time is more powerful than any other emotion I’ve felt.

Staal’s first goal came after Ryan Suter recognized an advantage when Burns ran into Jones, knocking him off his feet. Suter delivered a pass to Staal, who easily fired it over Jones.

Burns got the Sharks on the scoreboard with a power-play goal during a two-man advantage late in the second period. Burns scored again on a power play with a slap shot from just inside the blue line midway through the third, his 12th multi-goal game.

Matheson’s first of season wins it for Panthers in OT

Panthers C Aleksandr Barkov, who leads the team with eight multi-point games, returned to the lineup after missing Saturday’s 7-3 loss to the Colorado Avalanche with an upper-body injury. . Red Wings D/RW Luke Witkowski saw his first action since the conclusion of his 10-game NHL suspension for returning to the ice to rejoin a fight Nov. 9 against the Calgary Flames, and fought twice with Panthers C Micheal Haley, who leads the NHL with nine fighting majors.

Speaking of “down to the wire,” that’s when Ngakoue did his best work on Sunday.

The Jaguars were nursing a six-point lead with 1:48 left in the game, but their defense had improbably allowed the Browns to move the ball from Cleveland’s 22 all the way down to Jacksonville’s 40-yard line. After incomplete passes on first and second down, the Browns were looking at a third-and-10. They still had plenty of time to score if they could just make a first down right there. The Browns may have even elected to try to go for it on fourth down if they didn’t make it on third down at that point in the game.

Coincidentally, the evidence includes the last quarterback to take the Eagles on a Super Bowl run. The starters who have torn ACLs, whose styles have depended as much on their legs as their arms, in the last 12 years are Robert Griffin III, Brian Hoyer … and Donovan McNabb.

McNabb tore his right ACL in November 2006, at age 30 and in his eighth season. He returned for the 2007 opener, led the Eagles back to the NFC title game in 2008 and made his sixth and final Pro Bowl appearance in 2009, his final year in Philly.

A successful day of parenting has two qualities: (1) good logistics and (2) getting the hell out of the house. They work in tandem, and the farther you go, the more logistical planning you need.

James has 58th career triple-double; Cavs rally past 76ers

Cavaliers: Isaiah Thomas (sore right hip) played 4-on-4 Wednesday, but it’s still unclear when he’ll make his debut with the team. The Cavaliers are expected to practice Monday … C Tristian Thompson (strained left calf) experienced soreness after scrimmaging and missed his 19th straight game. He was injured Nov. 1. .

Golden State returned from a dominant road trip that might help shape its season and showed once more how important depth is to its success.

Texans 7, Ravens 7 Business picked up after the fake punt. Javorious Allen dragged about half the Texan’s defense into the end zone and finally got Baltimore some points, tying this game up.

Rather than risk yet another concussion, Scott has decided to retire at 58.

“I’m done,” he told The Associated Press.

The veteran crew chief missed nearly the entire 2017 season after a foul ball off the bat of Baltimore slugger Mark Trumbo in Toronto on April 14 caught him hard in the mask, causing Scott’s second concussion in nine months and fourth in five years.

Although there is nothing that can undo Goodell’s contract, the resolution will allow Jones to raise his concerns about the commissioner’s authority pertaining to league discipline and other issues at the NFL’s Special League Meeting on Wednesday in Irving, Texas.

They actually turned in a more impressive performance in losing to the Steelers a week earlier than in beating the Bucs last week. This is a defense against which Josh Gordon could do even more damage than he did in his comeback game, but he’d need a better quarterback to make it happen.mariners_011

Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award nominees announced

The NFL announced the 32 team nominees for the 2017 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award with a new twist.

The Walter Payton Man of the Year recognize players’ outstanding contributions to the game and to their communities. This year’s league winner will be announced on Feb. 3.

“NFL players are outstanding, generous men of character who give back to their communities,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said. “Walter Payton represented the very best on and off the field and this year’s Man of the Year nominees exemplify his legacy of philanthropy and leadership. We are proud to support players as they use their platforms to drive positive change.”

Green Bay doesn’t need to worry much about Dallas if both teams finish 10-6, because it holds the head-to-head tiebreaker, like it does with Seattle. Having that edge over Carolina, too, would be huge.

The Packers can’t be ruled out thanks to an improving Hundley and a revved-up Rodgers, but it will take a lot of proper permutations beyond what’s in their control to sneak back into the postseason as a wild card or division winner.

Smith, averaging 14.4 points, 4.0 assists and 4.0 rebounds, will miss his fifth game of the season. Dallas is 0-4 without their starting point guard, although three of the losses have come by seven points or fewer.

The team had to stay over Friday night and didn’t land in Chicago until after 2 o’clock Saturday afternoon.

Logan Couture scored in the first period and added two assists to eclipse 400 career points, and Aaron Dell made 25 saves as San Jose blanked Ottawa 5-0 on Saturday night to hand the Senators their third shutout in four games.

The winter storm moving across the Eastern portion of the country this weekend created a travel nightmare for the Bulls following the win at Charlotte.

“We all got to the plane and thought we were going to get out of there (on Friday),” Hoiberg said. “It sounds like our pilot was on a commercial flight that ended up getting canceled. This morning, the same thing.”

Wentz threw 33 touchdown passes and for almost 3,300 yards this season, so there likely will be an adjustment in the Eagles’ attack. LeGarrette Blount is the team’s leading rusher with 696 yards but only two TDs. Jay Ajayi, acquired from the Dolphins, has rushed for 307 yards for Philly, only eight more than Wentz finished with this season.

“Their defense is very multiple and is good up front,” Littrell said. “They mix things up very well. They are very competitive in the back end and pose a great challenge for us. There is a reason they are ranked 11th in the country. Vic does a great job of putting those guys in position to be successful.”

Fine added that Troy is “good up front with physical players” and that the Trojans “play some funky coverages at times.”

The NFC playoff picture took center stage in Week 11.

There were two games between teams in the conference with winning records on Sunday, with another one set for Monday. The only such matchup in the AFC was Thursday when the Pittsburgh Steelers handled the Tennessee Titans, 40-17.

The New Orleans Saints coach told Tiki and Tierney on Sports radio that he plans to add a simple scrambler the pregame locker room to keep players off social media.However, Montreal would go shorthanded, because Price received a four-minute roughing penalty.Not on court yet.Cordy Glenn allowed just two sacks all , despite pass-blocking for a quarterback that holds the ball longer than any other QB the league .Strahan returned to the U.S.Purdue Home Runs – 1 , last vs.Talk about failing to pan out: is the epitome of that.

The Bulldogs have sent some big, talented, versatile defensive linemen to the NFL recent years.

That’s s— is nothing!

2009, as the recession raged, the Redmond City Council approved plans for a Costco warehouse on the site the company purchased this week.- Slater September 7 This is a bit concerning because there are a lot of questions at center for the Warriors.He could travel that crowd.Calgary’s penalty kill is also ranked last and allowed a power-play goal with 1 left the first.

The 49ers are 1-10 and have officially been eliminated from the playoffs. Now they will get a chance to see what Garoppolo can do — and whether they want to commit to him long-term after the season.

San Francisco’s offense has been hard to watch this season, but Garoppolo has the ability to breathe some life into this unit.

On Monday, November 20, Colts head coach Chuck Pagano told Zak Keefer of indystar.com that Brissett “should be OK.” Brissett took “the lion’s share” of snaps during Monday’s practice, and Pagano said he looked good. Even though Brissett was still in the concussion protocol, Pagano said the Colts “should be fine.”

Brissett was a full participant in each of the Colts’ practices this week, and the team can finally breathe a sigh of relief. The team doctor and neurologist medically cleared him, so he will line up under center against the Titans.

Carson Wentz magically threw a perfect 51-yard strike as he was falling down

Carson Wentz finds some way to pull off some magical play every single week, it seems. In the Eagles’ Sunday Night Football matchup against the Seahawks, it was this 51-yard bomb to Nelson Agholor.

He did it again versus the Bears, when he escaped on third-and-9 for an 18-yard gain.

It probably won’t make a difference in the outcome of this one. The Seahawks added another touchdown to take back a two-score lead. But it sure is fun to see Wentz magically extending plays.

The Chiefs have been locked in a battle with the Jets on Sunday in East Rutherford, and Marcus Peters eventually had enough.

After a Josh McCown rushing touchdown, a defensive holding was called on Chiefs cornerback Steven Nelson, and Peters took the official’s penalty flag and threw it into the stands:

Peters was then called for unsportsmanlike conduct for the flag toss, which landed in the stands much to the amusement of a lucky fan:

The Jets went for two after the touchdown, and converted to make it a 38-31 game with just over two minutes to go.

The most impressive prospect for each NHL team at the quarter mark

Now that we’re at the quarter mark of the NHL season, or at least most teams are, there will be a lot of retrospectives on how things have gone so far at the NHL level. But how are things going beneath the surface with each team’s prospects?

Villanueva drew praise earlier this season when he emerged from the locker room and stood alone outside the tunnel during the national anthem before the Steelers’ Week 3 game against the Bears, a surreal Sunday in which protests by players and executives around the NFL in response to President Donald Trump’s controversial comments made global headlines. Villanueva even had the best-selling jersey in the league after taking the stand.

“When guys get injured, that calls for the next man up,” McVay said. “And that’s what you see around the league. We have been fortunate in that manner, that we haven’t had a lot of guys miss games that have been in those starting roles. But it looks like that’s going to end up occurring.”

Trotz said that injury disclosure is just a traditional difference between the sports.

“It’s just been part of the culture [in the NHL],” Trotz said. “In the NFL, [disclosure] is part of their culture. Maybe we’ll catch up.”

Hitchcock believes it’s time that they do. “Our feeling is just tell [the public] what the injury is,” he said. “Let’s stop the dance.”

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson broke his right fibula late in the third quarter Sunday against the Saints and was carted off the field.
