Who Said The Falcons Were Soft?

(Atlanta, GA) – There’s no denying that the Atlanta Falcons are a good football team. But depending on who you ask, they might tell you that they lack mental toughness.  So many games have slipped away in the final minutes, leads blown and what usually appears to be an overall cerebral collapse.

Halfway through the season Atlanta is proving that they’ve been to the altar and had a serious come to Jesus meeting with their offense and their defense. No softies around here. Between secret weapons, depth and perseverance, Atlanta is showing sports fans that they can got toe to toe with the best of them. Take it down to the wire if you want to and see what happens.

sam_0452 Sunday’s game against the Packers highlighted plenty of strengths for Atlanta in the 33-32 win including intestinal fortitude. The Falcons and Packers seemed to go back and forth up until the 4th qtr when with just under 4 minutes left Aaron Rogers delivered his 4th TD Pass of the game and put Green Bay up by 6. But did the Falcons crumble? No! The past 2 games Atlanta crumbled but not today.

With a banged up Julio Jones and an injured Jacob Tamme, Matt Ryan needed some other folks to make their presence known and they did just that. in his 32nd career game-winning drive, Ryan connected with Mohamed Sanu in the back of the end zone. Post Game Coach Quinn talked about the game winning TD.

The Falcons will play Tampa Bay Thursday night in a game where redemption will certainly be on their minds. The Falcons are a game and a half ahead of the Buccs so they need to go hard and with a new fire lit, it shouldn’t be hard.

Cast of The Walking Dead Talk Shocking Seventh Season Premiere

(Daily Mail) – He starred on The Walking Dead since the very first episode.

And as many were left bewildered by his character’s untimely death on the season 7 premiere, Steven Yeun seemed to be at peace with the tragedy.

The 32-year-old actor appeared alongside his castmates on Talking Dead on Sunday night just minutes after his signature character Glenn Rhee was brutally ended by new baddie Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).

As he is a fan of the graphic novel – and the character suffered the same fate in it – he thought killing Glenn off at that moment was perfect as he explained: ‘When you read that comic, you kind of don’t want that moment to go to anyone else.

It’s such an iconic moment and I think I even said “don’t give that to anybody else.”

39a731f400000578-0-image-m-59_1477283775255

‘It’s such a gnarly thing to say but sincerely living that out was very wild. But at the same time that moment happening and being realized on television in a different medium and to do it the way that we did it I think is brave and at the same time super affecting.

For me that was motivation to be like “Yeah that sounds great.”‘

He said there were difficulties knowing that his character was meeting his end as at first he was happy knowing something others didn’t  but it just got hard lying to people.

Steven said that his character’s death was orchestrated perfectly as he said: ‘I think Glenn died in a very Glenn way.

‘That’s what my wife Jo said, “he died in a such Glenn way”, which is perfect. Still not thinking about himself. I think it’s appropriate that he ends there and it’s also appropriate that he puts those words out as a final “look out for each other.”

As his character was in a relationship with Maggie Greene – played by Lauren Cohan – no doubt the actress had a strong bond with Steven.

The 34-year-old British beauty pointed to the moment where she knew they had a connection as they filmed an intimate scene in a pharmacy for season two.

She said: ‘My best first set memory was probably when we improvised. We had like a little improved before the scene, it was one of the crazy scenes but not the pharmacy scene but it was also at the pharmacy and we improved and I knew he was my buddy.

I Ain’t Saying He’s A Gold Digger.. But..Well Actually He Is: Mary J. Blige’s Soon To Be Ex-Husband Wants Her To Maintain His Lifestyle, His Parents’ And His Kids’

(SL) – The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul’s estranged husband is demanding $130,000 in monthly spousal support so that he can continue to live the ‘lavish’ lifestyle he enjoyed before she filed for divorce.

Martin ‘Kendu’ Issacs, 49, specifically wants Blige to cover $129,319 out of the $161,434 he spends per month. Which includes… $1000 allowance for new clothes, $8,000 private chef, $3,200 personal trainer, he has also asked Blige to contribute to the $5,000 he pays his parents each month, the $71,000 in rent he owes to several properties.

14717277_1316721281684928_3918617444831215336_n

Court papers also state..Issacs pays nearly $5,000 a month in support for two children from a past relationship, $2,500 on auto expenses and transportation, $5,708 in maintenance and repair on his properties and another $5,732 on groceries.

He has also asked for help in paying the $21,677 he gives in charitable donations and the $10,000 he spends on entertainment, gifts and vacations.

Issacs requested that Blige pay him an additional $100,000 for attorney fees and another $30,000 to his forensic accounting fees.

The filing states that Issacs made $46,204 a month when he was employed by his wife, and earned a total of $554,465 last year as her manager.

But Issacs, who claims to have $4.5million in assets, said he now needs spousal support because his financial situation has ‘changed significantly in the last 12 months’.

Blige gave Issacs $35,000 in August and $50,000 in September for spousal support, in addition to $25,000 for his legal counsel.

Reportedly, Issacs has already spent this mon14720476_1316721295018260_220610998223801564_ney because he had to ‘secure new living accommodations’.

Issacs added that his bank and checking account is currently overdrawn, with a balance of -$13,104.
The unemployed former manager (who by the way could get a job) wants to return to a life that included traveling by private planes, dining at expensive restaurants and socializing with A-list celebrities, the filing states.

Blige and Issacs signed a prenuptial agreement two days before their December 2003 wedding day that includes a waiver of spousal support.

But Issacs is arguing that it should not be considered valid or enforceable because Blige had legal representation at the time of the signing and he didn’t

Blige, who on average now makes $371,749 a month, will release a new album later in October and has a supporting role in a feature film due to premiere in 2017. She has yet to respond to his demands. Get A Job Kendu!

Dominique has three young children – Donald, 7, Dominick, 2, and Demi, 1 – with her husband who is in his 10th NFL season.

Poindexter has not publicly addressed the paternity scandal.

NBA Star Derrick Rose Cleared Of All Charges In $21.5 Million Rape Trial

(SL) –  Jurors cleared NBA star Derrick Rose and two friends Wednesday in a lawsuit that accused them of gang raping his ex-girlfriend when she was incapacitated from drugs or alcohol.

The jury reached the verdict in federal court in Los Angeles after hearing dramatically different accounts of the August 2013 sexual encounter.

Rose says he’s thankful that the jury rejected the lawsuit.

imagesHe said in a statement to The Associated Press that it was important to prove he did not do what he was accused of, even though he had to share private details of his personal life.

The woman’s lawyer called the men “sexual deviants” and says they conspired to gang rape her after she was drunk and incapable of consenting to sex.

Rose was in court, looking down as the verdict was read. As soon as the first question was answered by the jury, his attorney got up and shook the hand of each of the three defendants.

“All three men were innocent from Day 1,” Rose’s attorney, Mark Baute, said. “We’re very happy that the system worked.”

The woman’s attorney, Waukeen McCoy, said he will explore appeal options.

“I think it’s a shame for women, for this country that a celebrity can come into court and slut-shame a woman like my client,” McCoy said.

Though the accuser’s reaction could not be seen as the verdict was read, McCoy said she was devastated and did not understand how jurors could reach their conclusion.

The woman, who became emotional and trembled while testifying, had sought $21.5 million when she filed suit, but her attorney did not put a price on the case Tuesday during closing arguments, saying it was up to the jury.

Rose’s lawyer said the future of the Knicks point guard and his whole family was at stake because of a morals clause in his player contract and an endorsement deal with Adidas.

Baute urged jurors to recognize the suit as a “hoax and a joke” and not even award $20 because that could destroy Rose’s career and trigger financial ruin for the star and the extended family and friends he had pulled out of poverty from Chicago’s south side with his talent on the court.

Lawyers sparred for nearly three hours during the bitter closing arguments.

The woman’s lawyer said the 30-year-old college student was not a gold digger and was seeking accountability for what was morally and legally wrong.

He said the men had never apologized or shown any remorse and said their behavior was reprehensible enough to trigger punitive damages beyond any compensation.

“The three men laughed their way home,” attorney McCoy said.

14666081_1317453998278323_4373129743751579499_n

The defense portrayed Rose and his childhood pals, Ryan Allen and Randall Hampton, who both work for him, as victims in the case and the lawyers mocked the woman’s lies and demeanor on the witness stand.

“This woman has tried to trick people through much of her life, men especially,” attorney Michael Monico said. “Who is she trying to trick in this courtroom, ladies and gentlemen? You. She doesn’t have any evidence, but she can cry.”

Rose, 28, was traded to New York this year after spending seven seasons in his native Chicago, where he won Rookie of the Year honors with the Bulls and was the youngest player to be awarded MVP in 2011.

He has been plagued with knee injuries the past few seasons and is in the final year of a five-year deal that will pay him $21.3 million.

Associated Press

derrick-rose-rape-1028x580It became clear that the accuser’s story had all kinds of holes in it after she texted Rose the next day asking why he hadn’t slept with the girl she brought for him. Allen and Hampton also gave vivid details about their intimate interaction with the woman even though  she tried to deny their claims. But video testimony from a co-worker really did it.

Keyana Lavergne, a former roommate and coworker of Doe’s who gave text messages between her and Doe to Baller Alert. One message from Doe read:

Ok lets keep it at 90 then thats 6 months. Lol and i can even pay the whole couch off around xmas my dad gives me money not presents for xmas every year. then u just give me payment and since we finally filed against derrick we soon will be will be returning his tv and ill get us a Plasma.

Lavergne, in her deposition, said she came forward because she thought what Doe was doing was “morally wrong.” She said, “I have texts of her trying to use the situation for her gain.” She added that Doe “didn’t seem battered” or “off” at work the day after the alleged rape.

“I felt like if she felt like she had been raped, she would have told me,” Lavergne said.

What In The World Of Pedophile Lust Is Wrong With Donald Trump?

(SL) – Dirty Donald Trump is being exposed by yet another hot mic.  This time his inappropriate comments are aimed at believe it or not…a 10-year old girl.

Donald has said some really unsuitable stuff about women including statements about dating Ivanka if she wasn’t his daughter. But if you thought that was low take a listen to what he said about a 10 – year old girl back in 1992.

The latest creepy talk from the Rebublican nominee comes after new allegations that he groped women, kissed them and as one described had his hands all over her like an octopus.

Trump made the remarks about the child during a 1992 appearance on an “Entertainment Tonight” Christmas special. In the clip, Trump asks the adolescent girl if she was going up an elevator, then tells the camera: “I am going to be dating her in 10 years. Can you believe it?”

He would have been 46 at the time.

Lemon Pepper Surprise: GB Packers TE Jared Cook Finds Chicken Head In Buffalo Wild Wings Order

(SL) – All he wanted was some lemon pepper wings, but Green Bay Packers Tight End Jared Cook got much more than that. The football player found a cooked decapitated chicken’s head in his order.

39334df100000578-3827740-image-a-109_1475870824926

In a follow-up tweet Cook wrote: ‘tongue, eyes, and beak all present. With extra seasoning.’

The incident occurred at a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant in Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin. The restaurant responded to the stomach-churning photo: ‘Buffalo Wild Wings takes food preparation, service and quality extremely seriously and we are looking into this situation.

3933410100000578-3827740-image-m-107_1475870796951

‘We’ve reached out to Jared Cook and our suppliers for more information,’ they wrote in a statement.

No excuse. This is nasty and a bit creepy. I love chicken and this has completely turned me into a vegetarian.

She Only Said ‘Stop’ When We Were Heading Into Her Bedroom And She Said One At A Time: Rose’s Side Of The Story

(SL) – Derrick Rose’s attorney is asking for a mistrial in his civil rape case after unrevealed text messages paint a different picture of accuser and details of the alleged rape night.

The NBA Superstar gave his testimony in court Friday and detailed how the morning of the encounter his ex sent him a text message saying he was the reason she wakes up horny in the morning. She included a picture of herself in a nightshirt and continued with other texts about sex throughout the day.

392c1a9a00000578-3828145-image-a-71_1475906139553
Rose arrives for court. 

Rose, 28,  hadn’t seen the 30-year old woman for a few months because he had broken up with her. But, later that night, the woman and her friend went to Rose’s mansion with a Munkey Barz Sex Belt in tow. The former Chicago Bulls turned New York Knicks standout says when the woman arrived she started acting strange after a few shots of tequila and became sexually aggressive.  Rose testified that he was turned off and retreated to his bedroom where he rebuffed further advances until a friend removed her from the room.

About 20 minutes later, he said he walked outside and saw Randall Hampton having sex with her by the side of the pool. She pulled Rose over and started to perform oral sex on him while Hampton was having sex with her from behind but Rose broke away and returned to his room.

His description of the incident differed dramatically from the woman’s testimony, which lasted a day and a half in Los Angeles federal court.

The accuser denies having sex earlier in the evening at Rose’s Beverly Hills mansion, though her testimony was clouded by her claims that she blacked out and could only piece together the evening through short “flashes” of memory and by reviewing a flurry of text messages she apparently was able to send despite being drunk and, possibly, drugged.
