Michael Jordan's son gets in some trouble

Michael Jordan's son gets in some trouble

From Comcast SportsNet
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Marcus Jordan, one of Michael Jordan's sons, has been fined 250 after pleading no contest to disturbing the peace during a disturbance outside a Nebraska hotel last month. Jordan was in Douglas County Court on Thursday with his attorney, Steve Lefler. Jordan declined to comment. Jordan was in Omaha for the U.S. Olympic swim trials and was arrested after police responded to a call at a hotel early July 1. When police arrived, hotel security was trying to subdue Jordan as he argued with two women in the hotel driveway. A police report said Jordan was "very animated, intoxicated and uncooperative." Jordan averaged 13.7 points as a junior at Central Florida last season. He is not returning for his senior season.

Halloween is still a week away, but with the Caps preparing for a long road trip, Halloween came early.

The team had a Halloween party Sunday with many of the players dressing up in costume.

Alex Ovechkin and his wife, Nastya Shubskaya, appeared to coordinate with Ovechkin dressing up as an inmate and Shubskaya dressing up as a cop. Orlov, who is tagged on the Instagram post as the second person from the right, is dressed up as...the Joker? I think?

Several other players and their wives also got in on the fun.

Not to be outdone, Tom Wilson and Andre Burakovsky also joined in on the fun tweeting out their costumes. Fans of the movie "Step Brothers" will enjoy this.

And then there was Zach Sanford....

Rookies in professional sports sometimes have to take on...additional duties. For Sanford, that meant leading the party in a stirring rendition of the song "Sweet Caroline." Thankfully, Ovechkin filmed it.

Vernon Davis tells 60 minutes about investment that burned dozens of NFL players

Vernon Davis tells 60 minutes about investment that burned dozens of NFL players

By Jason Dobkin (@jasondobkin)

Washington Redskins tight end Vernon Davis was featured Sunday in a 60 Minutes story about a financial adviser who convinced dozens of NFL players in 2008 to invest in a company that ended up quickly failing.

Jeff Rubin, a financial adviser registered at the time by the NFL Players Association, convinced the players to invest in a new entertainment and gambling development in Alabama called Country Crossing. The draw was electronic Bingo, which Rubin said would make the players a ton of money. Davis made an initial investment of half a million dollars in the venture.

He told 60 Minutes' Armen Keteyian how easy it was to buy in to the picture Rubin painted.

"It was beautiful," Davis said. "It was a painting I’d never seen before. It was fantastic."

The only problem with the whole thing was that electronic Bingo would turn out to be illegal in Alabama, unbeknownst to the players. Two weeks after Country Crossing opened, it was raided by police, and it eventually tanked, losing the players a total of $43 million.

Rubin owned 4 percent of Country Crossing, and 60 Minutes got a hold of documents showing he funneled 10 percent of the money he got from the NFL players into his personal corporation.

Davis said the whole situation was a "nightmare," but he doesn't blame Rubin for his losses.

"I take most of the blame, and I think as athletes and players in this union, in the NFL, I think we should take the blame because we can change it," Davis said. "We just gotta wake up."
