Jonathan Martin's mother revealed as a lawyer with expertise in workplace harassment..

Jonathan Martin could sue the Miami Dolphins for big money under a variety of workplace laws - and could turn to his own legal eagle mother for advice.

The employment legislation makes employers liable for bullying, harassment and discrimination - even if the team's hierarchy didn't know about it, according to several legal experts.
Interestingly, Martin's mother, Jane Howard-Martin, spent almost 20 years practicing employment law and wrote numerous articles in legal journals on such issues as workplace discrimination and harassment. It's not known whether she has any role in her son's decisions. Howard-Martin is now assistant general counsel for Toyota Motor Sales USA Inc. in Los Angeles.

Mike Tirico calls unnecessary roughness penalty on Richie Incognito..

Freudian slip?

The Clash on the Court...Inslee vs Monson..

Stanford players dress as nerds after beating Oregon..

Reporter to Kevin Hogan: "why are you guys wearing nerd glasses?" Kevin Hogan: "It's Stanford."


The game itself was never as close as the score indicates. Physically dominating performance by Stanford. Laying waste to the Ducks NC hopes for the second year in a row. It was nice to see some old fashioned football for a change..

Aaron Rodgers has fractured left collarbone

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Tuesday he has a fractured left collarbone and has no idea yet how long he will be out.

The 2011 NFL MVP offered details of the injury on his weekly radio show on 540-AM ESPN. He got hurt after getting sacked by Shea McClellin on a third-down play during the Packers' first series while he was scrambling outside the pocket. He hurt his left, non-throwing shoulder.

''I do have a fractured collarbone. That's a significant injury,'' Rodgers said. ''We'll know more about the severity and the timetable later this week.''

Rodgers said he was holding out hope he would heal quickly. ''In this case, it was considerably more pain than I've felt in a long time,'' he added.


We'll see how long he's out, but that's the thing with the NFL..one injury to an important player, usually it's the QB, and away goes the season..

St. Louis weatherman is mad at the Cardinals...

Poor guy seems depressed. Probably has a reason to be. That's two years in a row St Louis has blown post season series leads..

How a fishing trip prevented the NL from adopting the DH...

I never knew the NL came this close. Interesting that an organization such as the Cardinals, who are always praised for playing the game the right way, were in the forefront of the push for the rule..

I now have a new appreciation for fishing..

More men are raped in the US than women, figures on prison assaults reveal...

In January, prodded in part by outrage over a series of articles in the New York Review of Books, the Justice Department finally released an estimate of the prevalence of sexual abuse in penitentiaries. The reliance on filed complaints appeared to understate the problem. For 2008, for example, the government had previously tallied 935 confirmed instances of sexual abuse.After asking around, and performing some calculations, the Justice Department came up with a new number: 216,000. Thatís 216,000 victims, not instances. These victims are often assaulted multiple times over the course of the year. The Justice Department now seems to be saying that prison rape accounted for the majority of all rapes committed in the US in 2008, likely making the United States the first country in the history of the world to count more rapes for men than for women.



I knew rape of incarcerated males was widespread, but I had no idea..

Puppycide: Police Shoot a Dog Every 98 Minutes..

I get emails begging me to plug Kickstarter projects all the time, and I rarely click through. And I sure wish I hadn't clicked through to this one either, because it's incredibly distressing. According to the page's authors, law enforcement officers shoot a dog every 98 minutes in the US, sometimes under the most casual and callous circumstances. It is a wave of underreported brutality that the authors hope to draw attention to with a feature-length documentary: Puppycide.


This is a trailer for the Puppycide documentary. DO NOT watch it if you're overly upset by the sight of innocent dogs being shot..
