Dallas Cowboys defensive captain Tyrone Crawford brawled with an entire team of bouncers at a Florida bar, as captured in security footage that was revealed on Wednesday.

The 6foot4, 290-pound defensive lineman engaged in the fight on March 15 at the Coyote Ugly Saloon in Panama City Beach, Florida, according to TMZ.

But while the Cowboys and the NFL are aware of the incident, Crawford was never actually arrested – although that does not guarantee he won’t be punished by the league for violating the personal conduct policy.

Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver may not be the most popular guy in Arizona these days, but I’d venture to guess that not many people hate his guts more than Greta Rogers. Rogers has quickly become an internet sensation thanks to her merciless evisceration of Sarver at a Phoenix city council meeting this week. One of the biggest hot-button issues at that meeting was a proposal that would give Sarver and the Suns $150 million in public funding for renovations at Talking Stick Resort Arena

The Kansas City Chiefs have released star running back Kareem Hunt, saying that he lied about kicking and shoving a 19-year-old woman during an altercation that was caught on video. Video footage of the incident at a Cleveland hotel in February emerged on Friday, and the Chiefs said in a statement that the footage proved that Hunt had been ‘untruthful’ with investigators.

The Chiefs said that Hunt would be released ‘immediately’. Hunt, 23, had helped propel the Chiefs to first place in the AFC with a 9-2 record, and had been seen as one of the team’s best shots of securing a Super Bowl title. It is now unclear whether he will ever play again. In addition to being cut from the Chiefs, Hunt has been placed on the NFL Commissioner Exempt list, meaning he is barred from practicing, playing in or attending games. Hunt responded to being cut in a statement to ESPN, saying: ‘I want to apologize for my actions. I deeply regret what I did. I hope to move on from this.’

They then fired a bean bag round at him. Just seconds later, Evans shot himself in the head.

Officers responded to the Bogey Bar & Grill in Shawnee Hills, Ohio on Friday for reports of a drunk man ‘stumbling and knocking people over’. They removed former pro-football player Kirk Barton from the premises and got him a cab to take home. The former Ohio State offensive lineman, 33, slammed the taxi van door on one of the cop’s hands when he tried to help the driver determine Barton’s address. Another cop then had to tase Barton twice to subdue him so they could take him into custody. He faces a charge of felony assault.

NFL star Michael Bennett surrendered to police Monday after being indicted by a Texas grand jury on the charge of injury to an elderly woman at the Super Bowl. After the New England Patriots’ historic comeback against the Atlanta Falcons, Bennett could not have been happier to see his brother, Martellus, win a Super Bowl, and wanted to join him on the field. Cops say Michael Bennett, 32, pushed a 66-year-old woman in a wheelchair out of the way to get to the field.

UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, who have been suspended indefinitely by the Bruins, apologized at a news conference Wednesday morning about the incident in China that had them stay behind on a team trip after they were accused of shoplifting. At the end of the news conference, UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said that the players each admitted guilt and that charges had been withdrawn by Chinese authorities. They had paid $2,200 bail, surrendered their passports and agreed to travel restrictions. The bail was refunded. UCLA paid the expenses incurred by the players who were left behind when the rest of the team returned home, but said they may seek reimbursement

The Cowboys owner said over a week ago that any Dallas player who does not stand for the anthem will not play but he had previously locked arms and taken a knee with his team, before the anthem was played & after President Donald Trump’s remarks.

Hit em’ in the pocketbooks. I guess they realized that no sport is bigger than the patriotism of the Amercian people and the fall in viewership and profits helped too

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has sent a letter to all 32 teams making it clear he wants players to stand during the national anthem, saying that the protest controversy is “threatening to erode the unifying power of our game.” Team owners are scheduled to discuss the plan with Goodell at a meeting next week in New York.

The Miami Dolphins are aware of an internet video that apparently shows offensive line coach Chris Foerster snorting an unknown powdery substance while at work at some point in his NFL career.

The team is not commenting but league sources say there will be an investigation into the video and Foerster’s fate with the Dolphins will be decided as early as Monday.

“We were just made aware of the video and will have no comment at this time,” a team spokesman said Sunday night.

The video clearly shows Foerster’s face. A club source confirmed that is Foerster on the video.

Professional football quarterback Cam Newton came under fire on Wednesday after he appeared to dismiss a female reporter’s question based on her gender. During a Carolina Panther’s press conference at Bank of America Stadium, Newton was asked a routine question about offensive schemes by the Charlotte Observer’s Jourdan Rodrigue. Newton, in reply, appeared to condescend to the female reporter, saying: ‘It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes.’ Newton then takes a pause before repeating ‘it’s funny.’


Charlotte Observer beat reporter Jourdan Rodrigue said she felt ‘dismayed’ and ‘belittled’ following the exchange
