Brett Favre offers prophetic insight into Packers replacing Aaron Rodgers, chimes in on QB’s situation

first_imgBrett Favre has entered the chat.The former Packers quarterback and current NFL Hall of Famer was known for his exit from Green Bay, one in which he seemed unwilling to play nice with future Packers starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers between 2005 and 2007. Well, turnabout is fairplay in the NFL, and on Thursday night the Packers’ braintrust selected Utah State QB Jordan Love in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, thus putting Rodgers in a similar situation as Favre some years ago.In an interview with TMZ just days before the draft, Favre offered some slightly prophetic words regarding Rodgers’ future with the team and how he and the Packers should handle the future of the QB room.MORE: Complete first-round results, grades of the 2020 NFL Draft”Look, no one is going to replace Aaron unless Aaron chooses to be replaced,” Favre said. “There’s no worry for him that he’s going to be ousted. He’s too good of a player. …”It’s funny because Aaron and I were talking about it last year, how he gets how I was when he came in, because now he’s at that age that I was when he came in. It’s getting about time that you start looking at drafting a guy or picking someone in free agency. Not that we think Aaron is at the end of his rope, I think he’s got many good years, barring injury, ahead of him. But you do have to start grooming the next guy.”While Favre maintains that his working relationship with the man who eventually took his job was good, reports and rumors still swirled that things were icy between the two. With Rodgers having to sit behind Favre for several years until getting the opportunity to start, the 36-year-old quarterback finds himself in the same situation. Favre also said that Rodgers can read the room properly. “Aaron gets it,” he said.Really, it’s a situation that isn’t unique to the Packers, as history has repeated itself in the NFL. In addition to Rodgers and Favre, Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo on the Patriots and Joe Montana and Steve Young of the 49ers all immediately come to fans’ minds. While those situations all ultimately turned out differently, NFL franchises have never been too shy about finding that next guy at QB.For now, though, Rodgers is still slated to be the guy under center in Green Bay. There’s just no telling how long that “for now” actually is.last_img read more

5 stats that put Damian Lillard’s run with Trail Blazers into perspective

first_imgHe became just the 12th player in NBA history to produce back-to-back 50-point games on Tuesday, scoring 61 in a 134-132 against the Mavericks two days after scoring 51 against the 76ers. The performance not only was the first of its kind — SportsCenter reports it’s the first 60-point, five-rebound, five-assist game in NBA history — but also guaranteed the Trail Blazers’ Thursday game vs. the Nets will be a play-in game for the playoffs.”I ain’t come here to waste my time,” Lillard said in a postgame TNT interview. “You know what we’re here for. We’re here to get in (to the playoffs).”MORE: Kyle Kuzma is not afraid to shootThe Trail Blazers are fighting for their season right now. They entered Tuesday half a game out of the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference.Lillard made a 3 several steps beyond the arc to level Portland on Tuesday before setting up Hassan Whiteside with an assist his next time down the floor.GO NUTS, DAMIAN— Sporting News (@sportingnews) August 12, 2020Remarkably, Lillard’s finishing touch on the victory came on the defensive end. He drew an offensive foul with 4.5 seconds remaining and the Trail Blazers ahead by one point. Teammate C.J. McCollum hit free throws to seal the win.Below are three stats that underline how special Lillard has been:55Over the past two games — both essentially must-wins for Portland — Lillard has shot 55 percent from the field. His teammates have shot just 43.4 percent.37.3Lillard leads the NBA in minutes per game this season, at 37.3. He has finished top 10 in that category every season since 2015-16. His game never seems to tire — he scored 22 points in the fourth quarter Tuesday against the Mavericks and 17 points in the fourth quarter against the 76ers. 37With his 61-point outburst on Tuesday, Lillard is now averaging 37 points per game in seven NBA bubble contests.11Lillard’s performance on Tuesday gave him his 11th 50-point game of his career, moving him ahead of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and tying him for eighth all-time with Allen Iverson.Congrats to @Dame_Lillard of the @trailblazers for moving up to 8th on the all-time 50-POINT GAMES list! #WholeNewGame— NBA (@NBA) August 12, 20203Lillard joined elite company with his outbreak on Saturday, joining Wilt Chamberlain as the only players in NBA history with three 60-plus games in one season. Lillard’s latest one couldn’t have come at a better time. Over the past five seasons, Damian Lillard has needed to carry the Trail Blazers like few other stars in the modern NBA are required to lift their respective teams. He has met the challenge with clutch playoff shots and endurance under pressure.Fans are used to seeing the Oakland, Calif., native shine under maximum scrutiny of opposing defenses. But what fans have seen from Lillard this week is an entirely new level — even for him.last_img read more

Judge rejects former Iowa governor move to toss jury verdict

first_imgDES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A district court judge has rejected a request by former Gov. Terry Branstad’s lawyers to set aside a jury verdict that concluded Branstad discriminated against a former state official because he’s gay.The ruling by Judge Brad McCall filed Tuesday summarily rejects dozens of arguments, including challenges to legal rulings during trial and jury instructions.Branstad’s attorneys asked McCall to set aside the July 15 jury verdict of $1.5 million awarded to former Iowa Workers’ Compensation Commissioner Chris Godfrey.Jurors concluded Godfrey was the victim of discrimination and retaliation when Branstad tried to force him to quit in 2011 and then cut his pay.Branstad’s attorney Frank Harty asked McCall in a July 31 motion to dismiss the lawsuit or order a new trial. Harty says the verdicts are unsupported by substantial evidence and are contrary to law.McCall concluded that substantial evidence exists to support the jury’s conclusions.The bill to Iowa taxpayers for the case stands now at about $8 million if the verdict isn’t reverse.last_img read more

Stable Notes By Ed Golden & Mike Willman -Friday, February 7, 2020

first_imgCHAMPION HOLDS ‘COURT’ IN 3-YEAR-OLD DEBUT SUNDAY ODDS-ON VENETIAN HARBOR STEPS UP IN LAS VIRGENES MILE SUITS MAJESTIC EAGLE IN THUNDER ROAD STAKES 2nd CHAMP STORM THE COURT MAKES SOPHOMORE DEBUT SUNDAYStorm the Court makes his three-year-old debut Sunday in the San Vicente Stakes, a race Peter Eurton hopes will lead to the Kentucky Derby on May 2.If so, it would mark only the second starter in the Run for the Roses in the trainer’s successful career of just over three decades. In 2014, Blue Grass Stakes winner Dance With Fate finished sixth in the first leg of the Triple Crown.Storm the Court has already exceeded expectations of most in the racing world, winning the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile at Santa Anita last Nov. 1 at odds of nearly 46-1, a victory that ultimately earned him an Eclipse Award as outstanding two-year-old male of 2019.“We’re looking forward to Sunday,” Eurton said of the Grade II San Vicente, to be decided at seven furlongs. “The horse is doing well and this looks like a good spot for his first race back.“We’re excited and after this, hopefully we’ll plan on the second, but it’s first things first.”Storm the Court is the second Eclipse champion conditioned by the 62-year-old Eurton, a former jockey whose stepfather was trainer Steve Ippolito. A native of Alhambra, California, Eurton trained Champagne Room, who earned an Eclipse Award in 2016 after posting a 33-1 upset in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies.Eurton, who made what is believed to be Santa Anita history by saddling eight consecutive winners at the 2012 Winter/Spring meet, enjoyed his best season for purse earnings in 2016 with $4,235,430.Storm the Court has been working smartly for his return and should be forwardly placed if not on the lead in the San Vicente.“He’s quick,” Eurton said of the bay Court Vision colt who led throughout in the 1 1/16-mile Breeders’ Cup Juvenile while wearing blinkers for the first time.He will once again be ridden by last year’s Kentucky Derby winner Flavien Prat, the jockey in all four of his 2019 starts.The San Vicente, race 7 of 8, with a 12:30 p.m. first post time: Fast Enough, Tiago Pereira, 12-1; Ra’ad, Drayden Van Dyke, 8-1; Party Town, Jorge Velez, 20-1, Nadal, Joel Rosario, 4-5, Storm the Court, Flavien Prat, 9-5, and Ginobili, Abel Cedillo, 5-1.VENETIAN HARBOR STEPS UP IN LAS VIRGENES    Venetian Harbor moves from a dominating 10 3/4-length maiden allowance win at 6 1 /2 furlongs on Dec. 29 to Grade II competition Saturday in the $200,000 Las Virgenes Stakes for three-year-old fillies at one mile, but Richard Baltas is optimistic the bay daughter of Munnings will be up to the task in only her third career start.“She’s a young horse but I think I’ve got her fit enough,” the trainer said. “She’s had some good works and good gallop outs. It’s her first time around two turns but I don’t see it being a big issue with her. She’s out of a Street Cry mare (Sounds of the City) which I like, she has the pedigree to do it, she has the body to do it, so hopefully she can do it.”The field for the Las Virgenes, race five of nine with a 12:30 p.m. first post time: Go Big Blue Nation, Rafael Bejarano, 10-1; Gingham, Drayden Van Dyke, 6-1; Cholula Lips, Abel Cedillo, 5-1; Venetian Harbor, Flavien Prat, 2-5; and Stellar Sound, Mike Smith, 5-1.VERSATILE MAJESTIC EAGLE RETURNS TO MILE IN THUNDER ROADMajestic Eagle cuts back to a mile in Saturday’s Grade III Thunder Road Stakes for four-year-olds and up and Neil Drysdale feels the distance is ideal for the steady son of Medaglia d’Oro.The five-year-old bay horse led into the stretch last out in the Grade II San Gabriel Stakes at 1 1/8 miles on Jan. 4 before finishing third, but was beaten less than two lengths.“I think a mile is more suitable for him,” the Hall of Fame trainer said.Owned by John Lindley and Ray Morton, Majestic Eagle has a 1-3-1 record from five starts at a mile on grass and is 2-5-2 in 11 starts on grass at Santa Anita overall. The Thunder Road, race seven: Ronald R, Drayden Van Dyke, 6-1; The Hunted, Geovanni Franco, 8-1; Majestic Eagle, Umberto Rispoli, 5-1; defending Thunder Roadchampion True Valour, Andrea Atzeni, 7-2; Mugaritz, Mike Smith, 8-1; River Boyne, Abel Cedillo, 5-1; Frontier Market, Flavien Prat, 4-1; Camino Del Pariso, Tiago Pereira, 12-1; Take the One O One, Brice Blanc, 20-1; and Kingly, Mario Gutierrez, 12-1.IT’S ALL IN THE FAMILY AS MARES THROW RECENT MULTIPLE WINNERSWhile stallion syndications and eye-catching stud fees are widely acknowledged as huge market forces in today’s Thoroughbred industry, many veteran horsemen steadfastly maintain that a good broodmare is easily more than half the equation when it comes to success on the racetrack.And, in recent days, a couple of productive mares helped underscore that belief by producing multiple winners at Santa Anita. This past Friday, Jan. 31, BG Stables and Little Red Feather Racing combined with trainer Richard Baltas to win the third race at 1 1/16 miles with Velvet Queen. Ridden by Joel Rosario, Velvet Queen is a four-year-old Kentucky-bred filly by Animal Kingdom out of the Tapit mare Tippy Tapit.Six days previous, on Jan. 25, BG Stables, Hector Palma and J.C. Diaz, Jr., teamed to win the day’s sixth race at one mile with White Velvet, a three-year-old filly by Oxbow, who is also out of Tippy Tapit.And this past Sunday, Feb. 2, owner/breeders Scott Devereaux and Mark Gross teamed with Carla Gaines and Victor Espinoza to win the fifth race at six furlongs with Tiger Dad, a four-year-old California-bred gelding by Smiling Tiger, out of Q T Shae, by Unusual Heat.This was Q T Shae’s second win in three days, as she also produced the winner of this past Friday’s fourth race at one mile on turf, Quinnie, a five-year-old California-bred mare by English Channel who is owned and bred by Devereaux and Gross, trained by Gaines and was ridden by Geovanni Franco.FINISH LINES: Jockey Agapito Delgadillo has been suspended three days (Feb. 8, 9 and 14) for causing interference on R Matineigh Idol in the first race on Jan. 31 . . . Santa Anita offers $2 beer and $6 specialty cocktails each Friday at designated locations throughout the track. Specialty cocktails include a Baldwin Buck, Margarita and other selected cocktails. There is also free Club House and General Admission each Friday.LATEST CONTENT FROM XBTV:FEATURES: XBTV Friday: What to Watch for at Santa Anita Park on February 7th, 2020John Shirreffs Shedrow Stroll: Get to Know Zenyatta’s Daughter ZelldaJohn Shirreffs Shedrow Stroll: Get to Know Honor A.PWORKOUTS:Hard Not to Love (Shirreffs) 2-7-20Cheap Cheap Cheap (Outside) and Sold It (O’Neill) 2-7-20Stela Star (Sadler) 2-7-20Legends of War (O’Neill) 2-7-20Tiny Tina ( D’Amato) 2-2-20Improbable (Baffert) 2-2-20Majestic Eagle (Outside) and Last Opportunity (Drysdale) 2-2-20Kingly (Baffert) 2-2-20Frontier Market (Outside) and Sea of Liberty (Sadler) 2-1-20Ohio (McCarthy) 2-1-20St. Joe Bay (Sadler) 2-1-20 41% 7 18 15% 1 70% 13 5 2 Philip D’Amato51 12 20% 22% J.C.
