The Alliance of American Football is planning to bring professional football back to San Diego with former St. Louis Rams head coach Mike Martz serving as the head coach of the franchise.
According to Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Martz’s coaching staff will be filled with many prominent names with NFL backgrounds as well.
The Yankees were off on Monday, then their short interleague series in Washington was reduced to a 5 1/2-inning suspended game on Tuesday and a rainout on Wednesday, then Thursday was another off day.
Friday night’s loss was just the Yankees’ fourth in their last 23 games. With Boston losing at home to Baltimore, the Yanks stayed a game up on the Red Sox for first in the AL East.
Nash averaged 12.4 field goal attempts and 4.1 3-point attempts per game during his four seasons with D’Antoni. By contrast, Harden averaged 20.1 field goal attempts and launched 10.0 3s per game this season, when he led the league in scoring with 30.4 points per game.
Marsh added that he felt the Patriots miscast him as a linebacker and all but requested to be cut by the team in November.
I confronted (Bill Belichick) about all the things that were going on, he said. I won’t get into detail, but it was B.S. things they were doing. I just wasn’t a fan. And so I, basically, without asking to get cut, I kind of asked to get cut… I had confidence that I would have an opportunity elsewhere and I would take advantage of it.
Although it’s been impossible to track down any details in the day or so since Geragos said what he said, I get the feeling it’s not Lockhart. I get the feeling it could be someone in even better position to drop the kind of dime that would indeed result in, well, it would be immature to use it a fifth time.
Beyond the fact that he nailed down the $2.275 billion price just before the U.S. Supreme Court opened the floodgates on gambling (possibly resulting in a tremendous spike in franchise values), Tepper will benefit on the back end from a tax law that allows him to essentially drive down the practical cost of the transaction by many millions of dollars.
As explained by Katherine Peralta of the Charlotte Observer, Tepper will be able to write off roughly $120 million per year for the next 15 years. A tax expert explained to Peralta that the law makes the effective price of the franchise roughly $1.7 billion.
