1. Juan Uribe of the Chicago White Sox felt that a couple of people who got too close to his jeep needed to be shot [Juan Uribe Is Sensitive About His Jeep].  He claims that he is innocent and being blamed because of his prominent stature as a MLB player [Uribe denies involvement in shooting, claims extortion].

2. Koren Robinson of the Green Bay Packers violated the NFL’s substance abuse policy and was slapped with a one-year suspension [WR Robinson suspended for year].

3. Matt Lehr of the Atlanta Falcons violated the NFL’s steroid policy and was handed a four-game suspension [Falcons’ Lehr suspended for steroid policy violation].

4. Shaun Rogers of the Detroit Lions felt bad for Matt Lehr and also received a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s steroid policy [Lions’ Rogers gets league-issued 4-game suspension].

5. Eric Musselman, coach of the Sacramento Kings, was arrested for DUI after his team beat the Utah Jazz in a pre-season match up.  I could maybe understand if they were playing the Miami Heat, but the Jazz? [Kings coach Musselman arrested on DUI charges].
