>>Cowboys’ Jones Threatening To Sue NFL If Goodell Extension Approved
(Frisco, TX) — Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is ready to take legal action to put a stop to a contract extension for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. The “New York Times” reports Jones is threatening a lawsuit against the league if an extension for Goodell beyond 2018 is approved. ESPN reports Jones has hired a lawyer to explore whether the requirement of two-thirds of NFL owners needed to approve an extension can be increased to three-fourths.
>>Two Unnamed Giants Say McAdoo Has Lost Locker Room
(East Rutherford, NJ) — Head coach Ben McAdoo has apparently lost his locker room. Two unnamed players on the 1-and-7 Giants tell ESPN that he no longer has the team’s support. The Giants are coming off a 51-17 home loss to the Rams this past Sunday. New York’s only win this season came in Week Six at Denver. The Giants are on the road to play the 0-and-9 49ers this Sunday.
>>Seahawks Take On Cards On TNF
(Glendale, AZ) — It’s an NFC West matchup tonight on “Thursday Night Football” in the desert. The Seahawks and Cardinals meet at University of Phoenix Stadium. Seattle has lost two of its last three games to fall to 5-and-3. The Cardinals have alternated wins and losses every week and are 4-and-4 after Sunday’s win at San Francisco. The Rams lead the division at 6-and-2.
>>Warriors Win Without Durant
(Oakland, CA) — The Warriors didn’t need Kevin Durant to blow out the Timberwolves 125-101 at ORACLE Arena. Klay Thompson hit six threes on his way to 28 points as Golden State won its fifth straight to improve to 9-and-3. Durant tells ESPN he expects to play on Saturday against the 76ers. Minnesota had its five-game winning streak snapped to fall to 7-and-4.
>>Pitino Was Apart Of Payment Scheme
(Undated) — It keeps getting worse for former Louisville head basketball coach Rick Pitino. A federal indictment for Adidas executive Jim Gatto possibly shows that Pitino knew about the Cardinals paying star recruit Brian Bowen and may have even been involved. Pitino told ESPN in an interview last month that he had no idea about anything out of the ordinary. He was fired last month.
