Bills Fight Again At Camp, Marrone Upset At Bills Fighting Again At Camp

((HT: The Fumble Sports))

Another day, another fight at Bills camp...

At least, they're feisty...

This time, center Eric Wood and rookie defensive end Bryan Johnson exchanged punches at the end of a play during goal line drills.
Here's Crystal Marie with a look


Head coach Doug Marrone said he has no place for fighting in camp and on his team. He ripped into the team after the Wood-Johnson fight and had them run sprints as a reminder how much Marrone didn't like what was going on.

Wilson Family Gets 3 Bids Under $900M

((HT: WGRZ-TV))

It looks like the Buffalo Bills might be Terry Pegula's to lose...

After the review of a few of the opposing bids for the franchise, all three of them were under a billion dollars- and the Bon Jovi bid is on, according to the Toronto Sun, "life support..."

Pegula's bid is listed, by Forbes Magazine, at $890-million. The Bon Jovi/Toronto bid is $820-million, and Donald Trump's is listed only at $809-million. Tom Golisano is thinking about submitting a bid, but it will be up to the Ralph Wilson Trust as to whether or not they will accept any bids.

Here's the latest on the sale

The final bids are set for the next two weeks...

Until the deadline is shifted again...

Fan Loses Beer, Booth Replaces It

((HT: MLB.com))

The HQ has seen the beginning of the story before, but not the ending...

There's always the guy (or more than one) that chases after the foul ball like it is made of palladium or something. He might get the ball, but there will be collateral damage.

Could be a crying kid, could be a piece of food or clothing flying around or off an upperdeck perch, or it could be a spilt beverage.

Happened in Milwaukee...
But the broadcast crew for FS North gets a lot of props for the make good on the back end...

A Subtle Protest As A Pitcher Is Out The Door...

((HT: MiLB.com))

Kanekoa Texeira was on his way out the door after giving up a bases-loaded walk that made a tight game between Gwinnett and Charlotte a little tighter...

But that didn't stop KT from dropping some of his gear along the way...

The HQ figures he didn't like the balls and strikes calls that were made against him while he was on the mound...


No word yet on whether or not Texeira got a fine from the league or his bosses over the jettisoning of his gear...

OSG Prem: Was Vincent Tan Right The Whole Time...???

((HT: Sky Sports))

The prevailing thought was the Malky Mackay was the frontrunner for the vacant Crystal Palace manager's position. But in a quick turn of events, Mackay's offer was pulled from the table and his buddy, Iain Moody, CPFC's Sporting Director resigned in a hurry from his post.

Seems Tan sent a series of documents to the Football Association for review that show Mackay's alleged lack of tact, abusive, homophobic, bigoted language in e-mails, and lack of respect for the game- three things the FA doesn't take too kindly to... 70,000 e-mails and 100,000 texts worth while Mackay and Moody worked at Cardiff City.

The Daily Mail has the full story hyah...

Here's the update from Sky Sports


A statement from Palace about Moody read: "In light of the events of yesterday, sporting director Iain Moody has tendered his resignation and it has been accepted with immediate effect. There will be no further comment from the club on this matter."

Remember, Mackay launched a £7.5m legal claim against Tan for compensation and wrongful dismissal after he was sacked. But he dropped the claim in May and issued an apology to Tan.

Why, the HQ is unsure...

Former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood is now the favorite to take over.
But, at the same time, Mackay is ready to defend himself in the matter...
