Former NFL All-Pro Ricky Williams is teaming up with the founder of the 420 Games to open a weed friendly gym. Yes, you read correctly.

Have you ever wanted to work out at a gym while smoking marijuana? Well, Ricky Williams finally has the solution to your...umm, problem.

The former NFL running back is a spokesperson and partner at Power Plant Fitness, a San Fransisco based gym that will be allowing marijuana users to toke up and workout.

Williams, the 1998 Heisman award winner from Texas ran into some trouble with marijuana during his career, even causing him to sit out a few seasons due to repeat suspensions, so it’s not entirely surprising to see him involved in a venture that is marijuana related.

Williams will run the gym with Jim McAlpine, the founder of 420 Games. The McAlpine describes the 420 Games as a series of events that are held to “destigmatize cannabis.” McAlpine has stated the gym won’t be a a place to “screw around” and instead will be focused on athletics, not getting high.

During his career, Williams said he used marijuana for pain management, and that’s why he got caught.

“I was a really good football player, a really good person, my teammates loved me, my coaches loved me, but my career and life were ruined because of a drug test,” Williams said. “It doesn’t make sense. They have to take a more humane approach to this.”

Williams and McAlpine released a press release to detail their plan and the gym.

“The stigma runs deep and people immediately go to the propaganda engrained in their brain that says marijuana and athletics don’t mix. Well, that’s exactly why I started The 420 Games, because I knew all of those people were wrong, McAlpine said.”

They make it a point to say the goal of the gym is to work on full mind and body training. If a runner’s high is a real thing that the two take seriously, then their gym could possibly take that to a whole new mental and physical level.

UPDATE Former NFL wide receiver Brett Perriman has been transferred to an Atlanta hospital, where he’s continuing to recover from a stroke he suffered earlier this month.

Per a release from the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, Perriman, 50, was transferred there from a Miami-area hospital. He was admitted into the intensive care unit, but Perriman will soon transition into the hospital’s acquired brain injury unit for evaluation, care and observation.

Initial reports said he’d been hospitalized due to high blood pressure.

His son, Breshad Perriman, was drafted in the first round in 2015 by the Ravens. Breshad Perriman missed his entire rookie season with a knee injury but is progressing well, and he tweeted some encouraging words earlier Friday about his father.

Brett Perriman had a career-best 1,488 receiving yards in 1995 with the Lions. In that season, Perriman and Herman Moore became the first teammates in NFL history to each record more than 100 receptions and more than 1,400 receiving yards in the same season.

Perriman played 10 NFL seasons and played for the Saints, Lions, Chiefs and Dolphins. He was a second-round pick of the Saints in 1988.

Panthers linebacker Shaq Thompson was back on the practice field for OTAs this week, running around with his teammates and hanging out at a charity golf tournament.

The guy he hit in a head-on collision last weekend, however, is still in the hospital recovering from multiple surgeries.

According to Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer, former Duke quarterback Anthony Boone remains at Carolinas Medical Center after procedures to repair hip and hand injuries, following the Sunday morning head-on collision with Thompson’s car.

Thompson was cited for driving left of center, and while alcohol was detected, he was under North Carolina’s legal limit according to police. Thompson said his cell phone fell under his feet, causing him to swerve into Boone’s lane, triggering the crash.

Boone, who was in camp with the Lions last summer, had just gone through a workout for a CFL team. But any thoughts of football are on hold while he recovers. His mother said he still hasn’t heard from Thompson or the Panthers (probably because they’re anticipating a lawsuit).

“He’s doing good. He’s got a long road back, but he’s getting better,” Jenice Boone said. “Praying every day, praying for strength.”

Boone left Duke as the winningest quarterback in school history (19, hey, it’s Duke), and threw for 5,789 yards and 38 touchdowns. He appeared in nine games with the Montreal Alouettes last year. But with a broken hip and ligament and tendon damage to his hand, it’s hard to imagine he’ll be playing anywhere soon.

The Ravens had an interesting speaker in Wednesday to address the team’s rookies as part of an ongoing series of speeches and seminars.

Ray Rice.

The Ravens released Rice in 2014 after video surfaced of Rice punching his then-fiancee. He was suspended indefinitely by the NFL when the video surfaced; he’d previously been facing a two-game suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.

Rice has been out of the NFL since.

The team’s statement on Rice speaking to the rookies, released via the team’s Twitter account on Thursday afternoon, said: “Our 27 sessions to our rookies through our player engagement program review and teach life management and life lessons. Rice, who played for the Ravens from 2008-2014, delivered an important message that included his story, both the good and the bad. He clearly had the attention of our rookies.”

The NFL eliminated the Rookie Symposium this year, instead opting for individual team programs and seminars like the one that brought Rice back into the Ravens’ building this week. The goal remains to deliver messages that might keep at-risk players out of bad situations and reinforce that being an NFL player is a privilege, and that’s why the Ravens took the rather bold step of inviting Rice back into their building.

Here's an UPDATE I wasn't expecting!! Ex-Boise State Football Player Reportedly Charged With Biting Part Of Teammate's Ear Off

Sophomore Dereck Boles was kicked off the Boise State football team on February 27 for an unspecified “violation of team rules.” That violation was him reportedly biting part of a teammate’s ear off.

Boles was arrested on May 9 in Polk County, Florida on charges stemming from the February incident, and will reportedly soon be extradited to Idaho to face prosecution. Per the Idaho Statesman, Boles is facing a felony charge for mayhem from the ear-biting that occurred during a fight of some sort.

Boles was charged by the Boise Police Department for felony mayhem after a Feb. 12 incident in which he allegedly was in a physical altercation with another male at an East End residence, biting him on the ear and tearing a portion of it off. The man who was allegedly bitten was treated at a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries. A Boise State source said he is a current player on the team.
Mayhem is apparently a rather serious charge in Idaho:

According to Idaho statutes, mayhem is defined as “Every person who unlawfully and maliciously deprives a human being of a member of his body, or disables, disfigures or renders it useless, or cuts out or disables the tongue, puts out an eye, slits the nose, ear or lip, is guilty of mayhem.” The maximum punishment is 14 years in state prison.
Man, even Luis Suárez would frown on this.

All NBA-Teams Announced; Will Anthony Davis Get His Extra $24 Mil

The answer to the Anthony Davis question is no.

He had to make at least All-NBA 3rd team to make his extra $24 million and he did not. While he isn’t hurting for cash, you can’t make up $24 million.

Anything else surprise you about the teams?

Here is a breakdown of how Davis missed out via ESPN.

The payout depends on what is known as the “Derrick Rose Rule” in the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement. If a player on a rookie contract is voted an All-Star starter twice, makes any of the three All-NBA teams twice or wins regular-season MVP, he is eligible to make 30 percent of the league’s cap amount in the first season, which brings the total contract to more than $145 million.

Davis was named an All-Star starter and to the first team All-NBA last season but was a reserve for this year’s Western Conference All-Stars.

If he doesn’t make an All-NBA team, as voted on by qualifying media members, Davis will make a little more than $120 million, starting at 25 percent of the cap — a difference of around $25 million.

FIFA Penalizes 7 countries for discriminatory acts

FIFA is arguably the most powerful sports governing body in the country that runs a singular sport. As a result, when they levy a penalty against a country, team, or player, it has a profound and important impact.

Recently, seven different countries and its fans participated in homophobic or discriminatory acts that caught FIFA’s eye and resulted in sanctions against those countries.

Croatia received one of the harshest penalties. Sporting News reports the European country must play its first two World Cup qualifiers against Turkey and Finland without spectators. Additionally, the country was fined the equivalent of $150,000 United States dollars for incidents that occurred during friendly matches against Israel and Hungary last month. This isn’t the first penalty levied against Croatia in relation to these events by FIFA and UEFA.

Chile was banned from playing at the Estadio Nacional Julio Martinez Pradanos in its capital Santiago for two matches. Additonally, the country was fined the equivalent of $30,000 United States dollars because of homophobic chants from fans. The first of the two suspensions will occur during the next 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers between Chile and Bolivia. The second suspension will depend on a probation period served over the next two years.

The other five countries penalized by FIFA are Mexico, Honduras, Paraguay, El Salvador, and Peru. They were all fined for:

“Discriminatory and unsporting conduct by fans, including homophobic chants in some instances.”

Mexico was fined around $35,000 US dollars for its cases, Honduras around $40,000, El Salvador $35,000, Paraguay $20,000, and Peru $15,000.

The violations were turned in to FIFA through match reports and the Anti-Discrimination Monitoring System.

“(FIFA) has put in place a comprehensive strategy to tackle discrimination, which includes the FIFA Good Practice Guide on Diversity and Anti-Discrimination, training, awareness-raising and the support of member associations in developing robust educational and preventive measures.” – FIFA’s statement.

More information on the sanctions, fines, and probation periods can be found in FIFA’s official document here.

Jets offering Ryan Fitzpatrick 3-year deal, $12 million for 2016

The New York Jets aren’t offering Ryan Fitzpatrick as much as he’d like, but a new report from the New York Post shoots down any notion he’s being offered a low-ball contract to play in 2016.


For a guy who has never been better than average before having a career year in 2015, this is quite fair.

No, it’s not the kind of cash young guys like Sam Bradford, Kirk Cousins and Brock Osweiler are raking in right now, but it’s darn good for someone whose career completion rate is right above 60 percent and who had thrown 123 touchdowns and 101 interceptions before last years’s outburst.

Fitzpatrick wants to be paid for his production in 2015. He passed for 3,905 yards with 31 touchdowns and 15 interceptions and led the Jets to a 10-6 record. It’s not happening, but the Jets, if you are to believe this report, aren’t being cheap with him, either.

Because of the team’s outstanding defense, the addition of Matt Forte and the twin tower receivers, Brandon Marshall and Erick Decker, New York has a legitimate chance to make some postseason noise. But only if Fitzpatrick is leading the charge.

It’s already understood that he’s the starter once he arrives, if he arrives — Geno Smith’s renewed confidence notwithstanding.

He needs the Jets, and the Jets clearly need him. It’s time for Fitzpatrick to accept the fact he’s not going to get the $16 million per year he thinks he deserves. It’s time to get a deal done. It’s time to put this contract impasse behind him and get to work before training camp starts.

I don't blame him one bit. Get what you can when you have the most leverage. This will be his last contract and opportunity to negotiate as a starter. However if they call his bluff he could be watching Geno take the starting position. If I were him, if push for that 12 million base and have escalators to the 16 million if that's the number he wants.

Dolphins linebacker Koa Misi was handcuffed and detained by Fort Lauderdale police, but not arrested, after punching a man in the head in a bar fight last weekend.

While that technically doesn’t reset our days without arrest meter, it’s another incident for a player with a bit of a past.

Via to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, this incident never led to an arrest because the other party didn’t want to press charges.

According to the police report, Misi and a group of friends going into an argument with a man named Scott Cabrera outside the Cyn Nightclub. They separated briefly, but according to the report: “Seconds later, Misi and other members of his group charged toward the nightclub entrance where Cabrera was standing in line. I was unable to stop all of them from charging and ran back toward the entrance, to where I witnessed Misi strike Cabrera in the head, causing him to fall to the ground.”

Misi was ordered to get down, but he tried to run and the cop “executed a leg sweep to bring him to the ground.”

(We knew things might be getting slow for Johnny Lawrence, but had no idea he was working as a Florida cop).

Misi was eventually cuffed and put in the back of a patrol car, but when Cabrera wouldn’t provide a statement or wish to press charges, Misi was released.

The Dolphins issued the traditional “aware/gather information” statement, but reports of the incident came after their post-OTA media availability.

In 2012, Misi pleaded no contest to felony battery with serious bodily injury, after breaking down a man’s door and giving him a beating which resulted in a broken eye socket.

Braves Outfielder Hector Olivera Suspended 82 Games After Domestic Violence Charges

Major League Baseball announced today that Braves outfielder Hector Olivera has been suspended without pay through August 1, for violating the Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy. The suspension is retroactive to April 30, meaning Olivera is suspended for 82 games in total.

Olivera was arrested last month in Virginia and charged with misdemeanor assault and battery after allegedly assaulting a woman in a hotel while the Braves were playing at the Nationals. The Braves reportedly tried trading Olivera after his arrest, but found no takers.

Mike Moustakas done for the year with torn right ACL

Defending a World Series title is difficult. Defending a World Series title when your All-Star third baseman is finished for the year is virtually impossible.

Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas is out for the season with a torn ACL in his right knee, manager Ned Yost confirmed on Thursday per Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com.

Moustakas, 27, was injured in Sunday’s 3-2 loss to the White Sox when he collided with teammate Alex Gordon trying to catch a foul ball. Gordon also suffered a broken bone in his right wrist as a result. Here is video of the play:

Moustakas was batting .240/.301/.500 with seven home runs and 13 RBIs on the year before going down. The Royals do have some of the better positional depth in the league. But at just 24-22 on the season so far, losing Gordon for a few weeks and Moustakas for the year is a major setback for a Kansas City team that has really struggled to find its rhythm in 2016.

This is an excellent article Investigation Finds Baylor Made Life Hell For Sexual Assault Accusers

The law firm hired to investigate Baylor University’s repeated failure to properly handle sexual assault accusations against its football players has delivered a report, based on which Baylor’s Board of Regents has prepared its Findings of Fact. This is a surface-level report and does not identify names or details, but even the vague references are damning: The investigation determined that Baylor “discouraged” women from reporting accusations, and “retaliated” against at least one who did.

Here are some of the law firm’s findings:

• Members of the Baylor football staff repeatedly and actively refused to report sexual assault allegations to the proper administrators, and what investigations did happen

“were conducted in the context of a broader culture and belief by many administrators that sexual violence ‘doesn’t happen here.’ Administrators engaged in conduct that could be perceived as victim-blaming, focusing on the complainant’s choices and actions, rather than robustly investigating the allegations, including the actions of the respondent.”
• In some instances, football staff members met directly with accusers or parents of the accusers, and still did not report the allegations.

• University administrators directly discouraged complainants from reporting or participating in the student conduct process.

“In one instance, those actions constituted retaliation against a complainant for reporting sexual assault.”
(Here’s where the vague nature of this report is really infuriating. It sure would be nice to know who those administrators are and what kind of retaliatory actions they took.)

• Even when the university’s Judicial Affairs department did act on sexual assault reports, it conducted investigations that were described in the report as

“wholly inadequate to fairly and reliably evaluate whether sexual violence had occurred.”
• Football staff members conducted their own improper investigations into sexual assault reports, which

“improperly discredited complainants and denied them the right to a fair, impartial and informed investigation, interim measures or processes promised under University policy. In some cases, internal steps gave the illusion of responsiveness to complainants but failed to provide a meaningful institutional response under Title IX.”
• The football team operated its own internal system of discipline, which largely served to keep football players insulated from the appropriate disciplinary consequences.
