A New York politician suggests that only fans who can prove they have been vaccinated for the coronavirus should be allowed to attend Buffalo Bills and Sabers games. While claiming that officials expect a full stadium for the coming sports seasons, Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz nonetheless insisted that it is safer to have sports venues limited only to vaccinated fans, the Buffalo News reported. Poloncarz exclaimed that people are perfectly free not to take any of the various coronavirus vaccines, but they aren’t free to attend a football or hockey game. “There is no God-given right to attend a football game,” the Democrat said. Poloncarz noted that the county owns both KeyBank Center, where the Sabres play, and Highmark Stadium, where the Bills play, so he feels the government can make the rules. In fact, even the state has no say in the matter. “I know people are like, ‘Wow, that’s pretty strict.’ But we’re trying to protect not only the people in the stands, … [Read more...] about Erie County Exec Says Vaccinations Mandatory for Bills, Sabres Games
By Matthew Geagan, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Julian Edelman called it a career on Monday after an incredible 12-year run with the New England Patriots. It’s a career that will someday become a Disney movie, with Edelman going from a college quarterback drafted in the seventh round to a game-changing wide receiver with three Super Bowl rings. He hauled in 738 catches and 41 touchdowns during the regular and postseason, but he did a lot of everything for the Patriots. He was a gifted kick returner early in his career and even dabbled on the defensive side when New England was in a pinch. He walks away from football with plenty of amazing plays for Patriots and football fans to look back on — almost too many to choose. But we’ve managed to whittle it down to 11 plays that we’ll always remember from No. 11: 11. Preseason Punt Return Edelman gave us a glimpse of what was to come with a 75-yard punt return in his first ever preseason game. It prompted Bill Belichick to ask Wes … [Read more...] about The 11 Best Moments Of Julian Edelman’s Career
Denver Post Broncos writer Ryan O’Halloran posts his Broncos Mailbag periodically during the offseason. Submit questions to Ryan here . Hi Ryan, I am wondering about the mindset of Drew Lock. I do think he can be a good quarterback if he would stop getting hurt. How is he handling all of this talk about the Broncos looking at quarterbacks in the draft or even bringing one in? I know last year he was told he was outright the starter; now the Broncos say he is their quarterback, but they are looking at other options. This has to be weighing on him mentally and I am sure it will affect his performance during training camp and during the games. — Del, Lamar Lock is a professional so even if he doesn’t like the chatter about his replacement being acquired, he will understand this is a production-based business and if he hadn’t thrown nearly as many interceptions (15) as touchdowns (16) last year, new general manager George Paton would be ready to move forward with him. … [Read more...] about Broncos Mailbag: Would left tackle Penei Sewell be pick at No. 9 if he’s still on board?
