1  Discussion / Sports Forum / Re: Report: Clippers' Paul might lead boycott if Sterling remains owner on: Yesterday at 10:11:00 AM
Should other NBA teams join the boycott and not play the Clippers? Or should they work for the money they're getting paid?
2  Discussion / Sports Forum / Report: Clippers' Paul might lead boycott if Sterling remains owner on: Yesterday at 10:04:08 AM
Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul has spoken with head coach Doc Rivers about orchestrating a boycott if Donald Sterling still owns the team when the 2014-15 regular season begins.

"That's something me and Doc are both talking about," Paul told ESPN. "Something has to happen, and something needs to happen soon -- sooner rather than later."

Added Paul: "We're all going to talk about it. We're all definitely going to talk about it. Doc, Blake [Griffin], DJ [DeAndre Jordan]. It's unacceptable."

Sterling came under fire when his racist comments in an audio recording went public during this past postseason, ultimately leading to a lifetime ban from the NBA and commissioner Adam Silver vowing to remove him from ownership.

During his testimony earlier this week in the trial that could decide whether Shelly Sterling can sell the Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, interim Clippers CEO Dick Parsons said he didn't think Rivers would return if there weren't a change in ownership.

Closing arguments in that trial are set for Monday.
3  Discussion / General Discussion Forum / Man says he shot burglar who said she was pregnant on: Yesterday at 09:41:17 AM
LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Police said Thursday they're deciding whether to arrest an 80-year-old man who shot a fleeing, unarmed burglar despite her telling him she was pregnant, but they have arrested the woman's accomplice on suspicion of murder for taking part in a crime that led to her death.

The homeowner, Tom Greer, was cooperating with investigators, Long Beach Police Chief Jim McDonnell said at a news conference. But the chief wouldn't say whether charges will be recommended when they turn over their case to prosecutors Friday.

He said Andrea Miller, 28, was not visibly pregnant but an autopsy would provide the answer.

Greer told KNBC-TV he shot Miller twice in the back as she ran away.

"She says, 'Don't shoot me, I'm pregnant - I'm going to have a baby,' and I shot her anyway," Greer said in the interview Wednesday.

The surviving suspect, Gus Adams, 26, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of residential burglary and murder, McDonnell said. The murder charge is possible because he is accused of being involved in a felony that led to a death, the chief said. Police did not know if he has hired an attorney.

Both Miller and Adams were unarmed, McDonnell said.

Both had histories of similar crimes, and Greer, who had been burglarized three times before, believes the same suspects were responsible.

Greer returned home shortly after 9 p.m. Tuesday to find the pair in his home. Both suspects attacked him, hitting him with their fists and ultimately "body slamming" him to the floor, breaking his collar bone, McDonnell said.

Miller continued to hit him, McDonnell said, while Adams moved to a safe and begin trying to pry it open.

The homeowner was able to get to another room where he grabbed a gun and returned to open fire on the suspects. They fled through the garage and into an alley, and Greer gave chase, firing at them again outside, McDonnell said.

Miller was hit, collapsed in the alley and died at the scene, McDonnell said.

"The lady didn't run as fast as the man, so I shot her in the back twice," Greer told the TV station. "She's dead ... but he got away."

McDonnell would not say whether Miller was shot in the back as Greer said. He also declined to say how many shots were fired and whether either of the suspects was hit inside the house before fleeing.

The investigation was "still very much a fresh case and a working case," he said.

No phone listing was available for Greer and he could not be reached for comment by The Associated Press.

It will be up to the district attorney to decide whether to charge Greer with a crime, the chief said. Under California law, homeowners can defend themselves if they are in "imminent danger of serious bodily injury or death," he said.

Prosecutors will have to determine whether chasing after the suspects and firing on them outside the home goes beyond self-defense, McDonnell said.

4  Discussion / General Discussion Forum / Mom Buys New Jeans for Son and Makes Shocking Find on: Yesterday at 09:32:33 AM
Simona Green went to Target to buy her 9-year-old son a new pair of jeans. When she was ironing, she was surprised to find that there was already something in the pants pocket –a bag of marijuana.

While the mom was shocked by the discovery, she was at least relieved that she found it before her son went to school.

“He probably would have been expelled,” she speculated. “I would have been in jail. My husband would have been in jail. There’s no telling what could have happened, and they need to take that into consideration.”

Green has called Target to issue a complaint, but the employees were nonchalant and unapologetic in their response. She has contacted police officials regarding the incident.

So a 6-4 team that lost to Lane is picked to win it all?Huh?  This has to be an episode of

Okay where the camera? lol

Hey Q,We didn't do the picking. They chose us. Guess no one wants the target on their head, huh?  Doesn't matter if we were picked or not. The target would still be on our heads. I'm just hoping we can live up to the expectations. One thing for sure. Once again The first four games will tell the truth. Coach better have them ready and don't tire them out for that first game.

I personally think the SIAC games gets kind of lost in Atlanta. It would be nice if it could be a big time event in Atlanta. Atlanta is not going to spend more money in marketing and staging these games than they can make off of it. A lot our Classics are partly successful in other smaller cities because of the local participation and the Brand image we don't get in Atlanta. This Brand image is what makes people outside of Atlanta attend our games.
I think Montgomery has the chance to be successful with the right marketing. I've never been to many other school's football games, not because I do not wish to attend. The truth to the matter is I love my school's games so much that I do not wish to support another school when I know my school needs the money and support just as bad. (call me selfish)

I am not sure how many of the people that attended the SIAC Championship game last year were local people not associated with an HBCU/or the schools playing. Pretty sure it wasn't many.

I live in an HBCU city but will drive 8 or 9 hours to attend Golden Ram Football. When I can't make it to a game(which are rarely)I would save that money for the next trip out of town. You see, all of the games I attend are AWAY games to me. Even if they are Home games. If Albany State is in the Championship game. I will be there if possible. GO RAMS!!!

9  Discussion / Sports Forum / Rams reload with former prep stars on: July 25, 2014, 06:57:55 AM
 — Westover star and reigning Herald Player of the Year Mike Green officially signed his National Letter of Intent with Albany State University on Thursday, but Green is only part of a wave of local talent washing ashore the ASU basketball program this summer.

Rams coach Chris Cameron revealed that three other former prep basketball stars from Albany will suit up for ASU this season.

Joining Green will be former Monroe star and 2009-10 Herald Player of the Year Robert Arnold, ex-Westover standout Chris Wheeler and Monroe grad Jonathon Morine.

Arnold, the 2013 Alabama junior college Player of the Year, is transferring from Chattahoochee Valley Community College; Wheeler most recently played at Middle Georgia College; and Morine is a transfer from Middle Georgia Tech.

It’s a mass homecoming that has Cameron excited about the upcoming season.

“I am excited about the talent of this class and extremely excited about the local players that we have in it,” Cameron said. “It has been extremely difficult to land the top talent in Albany, but to have these guys from Albany who are all Division I-caliber players to sign with us is amazing for our program and the community.”

ASU’s 2014 signing class also consists of Talonza Edwards (USC Salkehatchie), Junaid Olusesi (Dillard University), Lance Dixon (Stephenson High School, Lithonia, Ga.), Stephen Shaw (Kentucky Wesleyan University) and Jeremy Whitmore (Lane College).

The Rams run an up-tempo offense and pressure defense, and Cameron said he wanted the 2014 signing class to reflect that system. Whitmore, who played against the Rams the past two seasons, said Albany State’s fast-paced style was one of the reasons he transferred.

“That’s the kind of basketball I’ve been playing my whole life,” said Whitmore, who started 19 games last season at Lane, averaged 11.9 points and led the team with 42 steals for the season and 2.5 assists per game. “I’m ready to come to Albany and be a part of something great.”

The Rams lost eight players from last year’s team that finished second in the SIAC East Division, making this summer’s signing class an important one for Cameron.

“I was very careful in who I wanted to recruit,” he said. “I needed to make sure I got the right pieces that would fit our style of play as well as complement our returning players. My goal for recruiting was to bring in athleticism, toughness, high-character guys and talent. I think we did a great job addressing those needs.”

The most notable of Cameron’s additions is Arnold, the younger brother of former Dougherty and Florida State hoops star and ex-NBA player Alexander Johnson. Arnold averaged 19.5 points and 11 rebounds a night at Monroe in 2009-10 and helped the Tornadoes jump out to a 20-0 start and a No. 1 ranking in the Class AAA state poll.

He took his talents to Chattahoochee Valley Community College, where he had one of the best seasons in school history as a sophomore with averages of 19.6 points and 10.8 rebounds per game.

 “Arnold is a fierce rebounder and has great touch around the basket,” Cameron said. “He’s a very polished player that has played with some big time players, and we are looking forward to him joining the team.”

Few know Arnold better than 2010 Westover grad Wheeler, who spent each school year playing against Arnold and the rival Tornadoes and each summer on the same travel team.

“With us being the players we are and with the way we went at each other on the court in high school, I know it’s going to be great playing with him,” said Wheeler, who spent two seasons at Middle Georgia College but hasn’t played since 2012. “We still have that chemistry. I know this year will be fun. We are going to have a great run.

Wheeler, Arnold, Edwards, Olusesi and Dixon are all post players, while Green, Whitmore, Shaw and Morine each play guard positions.

Green and Dixon are the lone signees straight out of high school. Dixon led Stephenson to the Class AAAAA Final Four last season with 15 points and seven rebounds per game, while Green led Westover to a Class AAAA Final Four appearance and averaged 13 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.1 steals.

“(Green) is a great signing for us,” Cameron said. “He fits the mold of the type of student-athletes we try to recruit. He has a great personality, is a humble kid, a hard-working kid, a talented kid and is very athletic. It fits in with what we have been trying to accomplish at Albany State.”

This game wouldn't be played in Phenix City if Albany State hadn't agreed to it. Bottom line. You can't just move a game anywhere you please and then say... OK play us over here so we can make more money off of y'all.
12  Discussion / Sports Forum / Re: TUSKEGEE + ALBANY SATE = PHENIX CITY, ALABAMA on: July 21, 2014, 09:44:30 PM
We probably to agreed to this game. If it's a home and home series pretty sure Tuskegee can't just up and decide we're moving this game to Australia, come and play us there. I would think Albany State would make a sound Financial decision. Right now driving to Phenix is a little closer than driving to Tuskegee. Plus there are more places to stay and eat. But like someone stated earlier. Our Brand is on display also.

Question: For  4 hour or 2 hour drives do teams really leave on a Friday and stay in a hotel room? Phenix City is like driving to Columbus GA. It's not that far.

Try this link for media day.

Thanks, SCFAN. It seems to be working well. Guess things just haven't started yet.

Does anyone have the link to the SIAC Media Day? If so please post.

As usual, DA Hill is running his mouth about something that he has no clue about. As long as he can say something negative about Skegee, he is happy. For your enlightenment, Mr. Big Mouth, It is a good deal for Skegee. Albany State does not travel well to Tuskegee. So the couple of hundred fans that they may bring would not amount to a lot of $$. Ticket sales, concessions, parking etc,would probably gross 35-40 thousand at best. The 3000 students are admitted free. So $100 thousand, in my opinion, is a pretty good deal.

Will see you and the bull pups ON THE CAMPUS OF A DII SCHOOL, in early September.


If this is the case it seems that Tuskegee fans didn't travel well to this game also.
