WATCH!! Ravens RB Ray Rice Drags Unconscious Fiancée After Alleged Assault!

A newly released surveillance video from a hotel in Atlantic City allegedly shows Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice dragging his unconscious fiancée out of an elevator.
Police allege that the video was shot just moments after Rice and his fiancée, Janay Palmer, were involved in an altercation at Revel, a casino in Atlantic City, TMZ reports.

The surveillance video can be viewed below, courtesy of TMZ.

In the footage, Rice can be seen attempting to carry an unresponsive Palmer out of an elevator.
As Rice exits the elevator with his fiancée, he’s confronted by a man in a suit, who appears to be a security guard. Near the end of the video, Palmer appears to regain consciousness.
In an interview with TMZ, Rice’s attorney, who had not watched the surveillance footage, stated that “Neither Ray nor myself will try this case in the media.”

“However, the video that’s being posted by TMZ Sports is not the complete event, but is merely the end result of what transpired,” he added. “We’ll asure the public that when this matter is fully tried and completed, you’ll have a better understanding of what happened, and we ask the public to reserve making any judgment until all of the facts come out.”
Both Rice and Palmer were later arrested and charged with assault, TMZ reported. Atlantic City police claim that the couple struck each other during a 3 a.m. domestic dispute. “After reviewing surveillance footage it appeared both parties were involved in a physical altercation. The complaint summons indicates that both Rice and Palmer struck each other with their hands.”
The pair were booked on charges of simple domestic assault and released shortly thereafter, the website reported. They each refused medical attention.

Oklahoma's NCAA Violations Include Illegal Use of Pasta???


The University of Oklahoma had self-admitted NCAA violations today, which include three player eating excess pasta at a non-team banquet, this according to ESPN.
Yes, you read that correctly – the violations include players eating too much.
Each of the three players will repay $3.83 to charity for their over-abundance to pasta.

Per SportsCenter:
Oklahoma self-reported NCAA violations, including 3 players eating excess pasta at a banquet. Each gave $3.83 to charity to be reinstated.
Slate.com has more on the issue:
Violation: Three current student-athletes received food in excess of NCAA regulation at a graduation banquet. The three had graduated from the school but returned for an additional season of competition. The players were provided pasta in excess of the permissible amount allowed.
Although the players were not identified, offensive linemen Gabe Ikard and Austin Woods took to Twitter to fess up for piling on the pasta and claim they paid $5 for the food.

Seriously – too much pasta?!?! Now you can’t even eat if you’re a college athlete?

Fan Videobombs Wes Welker with Drop and Choke Signs at Knicks Game!!!!

video
Denver Broncos receiver Wes Welker has been a target for New York fans throughout his career, dating back to his time with the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots.
Welker is in town as the Broncos prepare for Super Bowl XLVIII, and he, along with fellow wideouts Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker, decided to attend a New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden.
When he and his teammates were shown on the video board, Welker fell victim to an outstanding videobomb—complete with drop and choke gestures—by a fan behind him.

The Super Bowl's CRAZY mandatory traffic regulations!!!!!

Every year, the Super Bowl moves farther away from "football game" and closer toward "trip through airport security." This year's model features some of the most restrictive regulations on transportation in the game's history. To wit:

• You cannot take a cab to the game.

• You cannot take a limo to the game.

• You cannot, we presume, ride a horse to the game.

• You cannot walk to the game.

• No tailgating, unless you're inside your own car.

• You can risk driving your own car for said tailgate, at a cost of $150 per pass, but if you don't leave now, you're going to get caught in traffic.

Here's what you can do:
• Pack onto New Jersey Transit shuttle buses from Secaucus, N.J., which is every bit as inviting as it sounds.
• Shell out $51 per person for the NFL-approved shuttle system.

Yep, that's right. As part of what the NFL is calling the "first mass-transit Super Bowl," you get the distinct honor of being one of the first people to pay $51 (why $51? why not $50? or $48?) to leave from one of nine designated pickup locations throughout the greater New York-New Jersey area to get to the Meadowlands. Lucky you!

Why the no-taxis, no-walking, our-way-or-sit-and-wait-on-the-highway approach? As Sports Illustrated notes, the NFL initially cited "logistical concerns," which would make a lot of sense if, in fact, MetLife Stadium didn't have experience hosting football games 20 or so weeks a year. The NFL then fell back on the unassailable "security concerns," but as Sports Illustrated's Sean Conboy sees it, there's something more mundane at work here: a straight cash grab.
"The NFL thinks of you not as a human being whose loyalty and wallet contribute to its preposterous franchise valuations," he writes, "but rather as a number on an Excel spreadsheet, and the league is determined to wring as much guaranteed profit out of Super Bowl XLVIII as possible."
Sitting at home and watching the game on a big screen looks better all the time.

Ayanbadejo says teammates on one of his Super Bowl teams used marijuana week of game!

Without offering specific details, former Ravens and Chicago Bears linebacker and special-teams ace Brendon Ayanbadejo said teammates were smoking marijuana in the days leading up to one of the two Super Bowls he played in.
During a FOX Sports podcast with former NFL linebacker Scott Fujita, Ayanbadejo didn't disclose which team it was, and he didn't name names.
Ayanbadejo played for the Ravens during the 2012 season as they won Super Bowl XLVII, a win over the San Francisco 49ers, and for the Bears in their loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLI, The audio of Ayanbadejo's Super Bowl story begins at roughly the 29:30 mark of the podcast.

"I'm not going to say which Super Bowl it was but I just remember getting off the elevator one night — it was early on in the week, just to start the week off — and all of the sudden I just got hit over the head with fumes of marijuana on the entire floor of the hotel that the team was staying on. I could just imagine there were a few young guys just toking it up in more than one room. I was like, 'Man this is the week of the Super Bowl and you're just going in?' So then I was looking around, and I'm like 'OK, where is the security?' I looked and for some reason we didn't have regular police — coach was smart enough to have rent-a-cops on our floor instead of regular police like we usually do. I scratched my head but I was like, 'OK, uh, that's a good thing 'cause . . .' that's it. That's all I've got to say about that." 

Ayanbadejo was always known for being outspoken, especially regarding social causes and politics as a strong advocate for legalizing same-sex marriage, during his NFL career. And the former Pro Bowl special-teams ace hasn't changed his approach now that he's a member of the media.
There have been many discussions recently about whether the NFL should allow players to use marijuana for medical reasons with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll both saying that it's worthy of study and consideration. - The Baltimore Sun

LOOK: Texas billboard wants Houston to draft Johnny Manziel

After a disastrous 2013 season, Houston landed the No. 1 pick - the chance to rebuild the franchise with one of college football's biggest stars. Central Florida QB Blake Bortles and South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney top CBSSports.com's mock drafts while Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater has also topped draft charts.

Heisman winning quarterback Johnny Manziel? Not so much. While both of our mock drafts from Rob Rang and Dane Brugler have the Texas A&M signal caller going No. 4 to Cleveland, he hasn't been seen atop many mock drafts.
That hasn't stopped the group behind DraftJohnnyManziel.com from creating that billboard urging the Texans to take Manziel with the top pick. That site also has a photoshop of Manziel in a Texans uniform. There's also a petition to keep Johnny Football in Texas because clearly NFL GMs pay attention to fan petitions when making one of the most important draft selections in team history.

PS: I thought this was pretty cool. Here I am back in the day holding a camera covering Johnny Manziel in high school :)
