NFL suspends Marshawn Lynch one game for contact with an official

MARSHAWN LYNCH of the Oakland Raiders has been suspended without pay for one game for unsportsmanlike conduct in Thursday night’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

NFL Vice President of Football Operations JON RUNYAN issued the suspension for a violation of Rule 12, Section 3, which states that “There shall be no unsportsmanlike conduct. This applies to any act which is contrary to the generally understood principles of sportsmanship.”

Lynch also specifically violated Rule 12, Section 3, Article 1 (g) which prohibits “unnecessary physical contact with a game official.”

In his letter to Lynch, Runyan wrote:

“You made deliberate physical contact with one of our game officials as he was diffusing an active confrontation between players. You were disqualified for your inappropriate and unsportsmanlike actions. Your conduct included pushing the game official and grabbing his jersey…You were not directly involved in the active confrontation that the game official was attempting to diffuse, nor were you a participant in the play that initiated the confrontation. You were the only player from either team who ran from the sideline to midfield to insert himself into a situation in which he was not directly involved.”

Lynch will be eligible to return to the Raiders’ active roster on Monday, October 30 following the team’s October 29 game against the Buffalo Bills.

Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the suspension may be appealed within three business days. Appeals are heard and decided by either DERRICK BROOKS or JAMES THRASH, the officers jointly appointed and compensated by the NFL and NFLPA to decide appeals of on-field player discipline.

Nationals stun baseball world by firing Dusty Baker after winning back-to-back Eastern Division titles

The Lerner family and Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo stunned the baseball world with their announcement of having to fire Dusty Baker and his entire coaching staff after two very successful seasons.
Baker’s contract expired at the end of this season and fans and media expected he would be back but ownership had other ideas. He had been working under a a two-year, $4 million contract.
Rizzo said he and the Nationals ownership came to a difficult decision. Baker was told Friday morning that he and his coaching staff would not return.
“Our expectations have grown to the fact that winning a lot of regular-season games and winning divisions are not enough,” Rizzo said. “Our goal is to win a world championship.”
Baker has won 1,863 games in his 22-year tenure as a manager, the 14th most in MLB history. Twelve of the 13 managers ahead of him are in the Hall of Fame.
Baker has that tag on him in the baseball world that he can get a team to the playoffs but not to the promised land which is a world championship.
There is an interesting pattern about the Nationals manager situation over the years and it is baffling. They have had some solid managers in Frank Robinson, Manny Acta, Jim Riggleman, Davey Johnson and Baker. They have either resigned or been fired despite being successful. Rizzo said the Nationals will immediately begin searching for a new manager. The new manager will become the team’s seventh skipper since the franchise moved to Washington in 2005. No Nationals manager has completed a third season, and the club’s new manager in 2018 will be its sixth in 10 years. Not much for stability in the Washington dugout even if you win a division and get to the playoffs. That might scare off some candidates.
