  • Player at center of Dolphins' bullying scandal to retire
    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina Panthers offensive tackle Jonathan Martin, the player who was at the center of the Richie Incognito bullying scandal in Miami, plans to retire from the NFL, according to a source close to the player. Martin chose to retire instead of undergoing surgery for a back injury that potentially could have sidelined him for the entire 2015 season, according to the NFL Network, which first reported the story. The Panthers claimed Martin off waivers in March after he was released by the San Francisco 49ers. He spent most of offseason workouts behind Michael Oher at left tackle. Martin played only one season for San Francisco, appearing in 15 games, starting nine at right tackle. He was set to count roughly $1 million against the 2015 salary cap. Martin spent his first two NFL seasons with the Dolphins, leaving in October 2013 after the bullying controversy became public. It was...
  • Don't blame Boston: Americans are smart to shun the Olympics
    AROUND 3 P.M. ON MONDAY,??after months of clinging to life, Boston's bid for the 2024 Olympics finally kicked the bucket (cause of death: incompetence). Now the U.S. Olympic Committee will decide whether it wants to bid on the Games at all. The USOC must ask itself if America still has a chance -- if it isn't too late to revert to Los Angeles, which already has some of the infrastructure needed for the event. But it should also ask another question, one that's key to understanding why the U.S. hasn't hosted the Summer Games since 1996. Does America even want to host the Olympics? At first glance, the answer seems obvious. Earlier this summer, an AP-GfK poll found that 89 percent of Americans want the 2024 Games to be held in the U.S., a sizable jump from previous years -- and a clear indication, a spokesman for the USOC said, that "there is a strong desire, from coast to coast, to see the Games return to the U.S."...
  • Back to school: NBA coaches return to college ranks
    Avery Johnson thumbed through a roster book at a recent recruiting stop, searching for a player's biography while the night's final game began. Tipoff was close to 10 p.m., a time when many of the players perform like they're in a hurry to get it over with, and bleary-eyed coaches are only staying courtside for appearance's sake. Johnson knew very well there would be nights like this. He just sat through them two years ago while his son,?? Avery, auditioned for college coaches during the summer's live recruiting??periods. Now he sits through them as the new head coach at Alabama. "People talk about the grind of being on the road for July with these AAU tournaments," Johnson said. "There's nothing like the grind of an NBA season when you're playing four games in five nights -- and that's consistently all during the season. We're up for the challenge, and we're excited about it." Fred Hoiberg continued the flow of college coaches trying their...
