Bears linebacker Jerrell Freeman has been suspended 10 games without pay by the NFL for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances, the team announced Monday.
In another interview from November 2016, she told league investigators that she texted Joey Bosa, Womens Kareem Hunt Jersey Elliott’s teammate at Ohio State and former roommate, through Facebook to find a place to stay in the area and that when Elliott found out about the texts the next day, Elliott shoved her again with an open hand, hurting her left shoulder and chest, and threw all her belongings off the balcony of his rented apartment. That’s when she said she called the police. (pages 21-26)
She said after she checked into a hotel, a lawyer and agent for Elliott texted her because they were worried about the press finding out. According to her interview, she agreed to call the police officer she had met because I didn’t want to ruin [Elliott’s] career. She said Elliott texted her throughout the day and came to see her at the hotel twice.
I don’t think this debacle doomed the republic, but it serves as a perfect metaphor for what the profit-obsessed revenue behemoth it has become in recent decades. It wasn’t enough for the NFL to draw 80,000 fans — the stadium’s official capacity for football — to the 2011 Super Bowl. It wanted more — at prices that started at $600 per ticket at face value that year. And it got there. Attendance for the game was 103,219 — at the inconvenience of only 1,250 of them.
The Eagles are 6-1, have the longest winning streak in the NFL, and there isn’t even another winning record in the division now that Washington is 3-3. That’s also the second win over Washington, so the tiebreaker is gone too.
