Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady finally accepts four-game suspension



New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady has finally accepted his four-game suspension from the NFL for the “Deflategate” scandal. After a New York court denied an appeal from the NFL players’ union and Brady, he announced that he’s no longer going to try to fight the ban and will sit out the first four contests of the 2016 season. Brady was originally suspended back in May of 2015 without pay for four regular-season games for allegedly deflating the air pressure in footballs before the Patriots beat Indianapolis in the AFC championship game. It’s believed less air pressure would enable the quarterback to get a better grip on the ball in the rainy conditions the January game was played in.

NFL considers narrowing the uprights

The NFL is considering narrowing the uprights and will place computer chips the league’s footballs to help them come to a decision on the matter. The senior vice-president of officiating for the NFL, Dean Blandino, said the goal posts may be brought closer together to make it more challenging for players to kick field goals and extra points. The league announced that 85 per cent of field goal attempts have been successful over the last three years and it may be becoming a bit too easy for them. Blandino said the league will study the situation this season by placing a computer chip in the balls during the 2016 preseason schedule.

Henrik Stenson wins 2016 British Open in record fashion

Sweden’s Henrik Stenson won the 145th British Open at Royal Troon in Ayrshire, Scotland in record fashion on Sunday, July 17th. It was Stenson’s first major victory and the first ever for a Swedish male golfer. The 40-year-old finished the 72-hole, four-round event at 20 under par, which tied Jason Day lowest under-par score ever in a major tournament. Day set the mark at last year’s PGA Championship. However, Stenson didn’t really have much choice since American Phil Mickelson was right on his tail as he finished in the runner up position for the 11th time in a major. It was Stenson who hung on to take home the claret jug though with his final shot being an excellent 20-foot birdie shot at the 18th hole.

The company was bought by the WME-IMG talent agency along with Silver Lake Partners, MSD Capital, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and the Michael Dell investment firm. The UFC was bought by the Fertitta brothers, Frank and Lorenzo, for just $2 million in 2000 and was mainly operated by its president Dana White. The $4 billion price tag makes the sale the most expensive in sports history. ESPN had reported a couple of months ago that the UFC was up for sale, but White denied the reports.
