NFL News - TV ban not set, Carter's brother stays in jail, Ward visits Korea (4/3)
NFL | New local television sideline ban not finalized
Mon, 3 Apr 2006 05:28:33 -0700
John Consoli, of Mediaweek.com, reports the NFL says it has not finalized a policy that will ban local TV stations from shooting footage from the sidelines during games. The policy was developed last week at the NFL meetings, but more internal discussions within the league offices are scheduled for April 10. The Radio-Television News Directors Association has urged the league not to implement the policy citing First Amendment concerns. The NFL has said that the new policy would protect the broadcast rights holders and alleviate congestion from the sidelines.
NFL | Judge says Tony Carter to remain in jail
Mon, 3 Apr 2006 05:36:43 -0700
Shomari Stone, of CBS4 News, reports a Broward County, Florida judge has decided that there will be no leniency for the brother of Pittsburgh Steelers S Tyrone Carter, who skipped a court date on a minor charge to see his brother play in the Super Bowl, and will spend years in prison as a result. The attorney representing Tony "Tank" Carter has confirmed that Broward County Judge Stanton Kaplan has rejected Carter's request for a reduction of his sentence. As previously reported Tank Carter had his prison sentence extended when he failed to show up for a court date because he wanted to see his brother play in the Super Bowl.
Steelers | Ward returns to South Korea
Mon, 3 Apr 2006 17:48:56 -0700
The Associated Press reports Pittsburgh Steelers WR Hines Ward returned to South Korea Monday, April 3, with his mother Kim Young-hee. Ward was born in Seoul and has not been in South Korea since he was a little over a year old. National broadcaster YTN called the event "the return of the hero" and broadcast their arrival live. The two will start a 10-day tour that includes lunch with President Roh Moo-hyun, visits with relatives, and a pep talk to mixed-race children. Mixed-race children in South Korea often find it difficult to succeed in Korean society.
good that the ban isn't final yet. that's a really bad idea and maybe the NFL should consider its fans instead of the media conglomerates just this once...
