Urban Meyer Suspended 3 Games And Showed No Remorse, Browns Asst Coach Hates Stretching, Helmet Rule Remains

FOOTBALL

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer was suspended for 3 games for how he handled the domestic abuse allegations against his assistant coach  Zach Smith. Meyer held a press conference Wednesday night apologizing to the University for how the situation was handled. He never admitted, however, he knew anything about the years of abuse Smith’s wife, Courtney, suffered, even though Courtney shared her suffering with Meyer’s wife via text messages. Meyer even knew  there was a police investigation. Many are upset with Meyer’s lack of emotion and contrition during the press conference, never mentioning Courtney’s name or her years of suffering.

Cleveland Browns assistant coach Bob Wylie made it very clear he hates stretching and went on a rant about how unnecessary it is for athletes. In defense of his beliefs he brought up the athleticism of soldiers and said, “Did you know, World War I and World War II, all those guys that fought in that war … they did pushups, jumping jacks, situps, climb the rope and ran. None of this fancy (expletive). And they won two World Wars. Do you think they were worried when they were running across Normandy about (expletive) stretching?”

The NFL decided its new controversial helmet rule will remain in place, with the clarification that unintentionally contact will not be called. An NFL executive explained “The committee resolved that there will be no changes to the rule as approved by clubs this spring, which includes no additional use of instant replay. The committee also determined that inadvertent or incidental contact with the helmet and/or face mask is not a foul.”
