Lawsuit To Pay NCAA Athletes, NHRA, Oscar De La Hoya, Dwight Howard & Luke Donald: 9/3, Vol. 220, 3rd Edition

Hello Fear, I knew I would see you, you have a hard time letting go; see these tears, take a good look cuz, soon they won’t fall anymore. God's healing my hurtful places and that seat that was yours now is taken!  For your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel Radio, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y.

Suit aimed to pay NCAA
athletes for their images
A lawsuit aimed to pay college players has taken a slight twist.  Instead of seeking to pay college players for their efforts on the field, the lawsuit was tweaked to pay college athletes for use of their images.  Attorneys argued that television, video games, and other products that generate money from the use of athletes’ images, should be shared with the players and if the NCAA need to abide by the spirit of amateur sports, then money can be held in trust until the athletes end their collegiate careers.  No monetary figures were made available in the public filing of the suit, but indicated that football players could earn tens of thousands of dollars.  However, the NCAA chief counsel thinks the twist lacks merit.
For your Quick News & Notes, Angelica Cecora who claimed to have been intimidated by boxer Oscar De La Hoya during a wild night at a New York City hotel has now been ordered to pay his legal bill of $12,0000, after a judge said her lawsuit was "frivolous" and malicious, after a controversial restart, Ryan Hunter-Reay celebrated his perfect timing and a much-needed victory as the Grand Prix of Baltimore on Sunday, Jenson Button coasted to his second victory of the season on Sunday at the Belgian Grand Prix that was marred with wrecks, remnants of Hurricane Isaac reached Indiana on Sunday, with steady rain and standing water forcing NHRA officials to cancel the final two qualifying sessions for the U.S. Nationals and will take place on today, Ryan Dungey raced to his ninth consecutive AMA Pro Motocross victory Saturday, sweeping the 450 Class motos at Steel City Raceway while also capturing #3 on the all-time wins list, Office Depot, co-primary sponsor for Tony Stewart's #14 Chevrolet in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series since Stewart took over the team in 2009, will not return in that capacity in 2013, a team spokesman confirmed, Arizona State coach Herb Sendek made a bold move to save a struggling program by hiring two professional coaches as assistants, Larry Greer  and Eric Musselman.
Southern California athletic director Pat Haden says USC will investigate a Los Angeles Times report claiming former football player Joe McKnight and former basketball player Davon Jefferson, received gifts from an employee of the Los Angeles County assessor's office, USC Trojans guard Maurice Jones, the Trojans' leading scorer in 2011-2012, is academically ineligible for the upcoming season, the school announced Saturday night and can re-apply after this semester, after being injured in the first game of the season, South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said starting quarterback Connor Shaw can barely lift his right arm and will miss the next few days of practice, after finally departing from my beloved home city Orlando Magic, Dwight Howard, who was traded to by beloved LA Lakers, took out a full-page advertisement in Sunday's Orlando Sentinel that read in part “Words cannot express the love that I have for Orlando. With your support we have done great things in this city from hanging banners to impacting our youth”,  and finally, Luke Donald apologized Sunday for criticizing golf course architect Gil Hanse in a tweet that was meant to be private…..well, as coach Herm Edwards always say, make sure read it again before you press send……huh!?
