Biggest NFL injuries of Week 3
ABC News - 5 months
Here are the most significant NFL players who got banged up in Week 3: Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks: Wilson came into Week 3 with a banged up right ankle, and he suffered a sprained left knee when he was dragged to the ground by Eli Harold?on Sunday. Wilson missed one snap before coming back in to finish the possession. Doctors ran him through a number of tests on the sideline, and on the next offensive possession, backup quarterback Trevone Boykin replaced Wilson. Fox's Pam Oliver said the team told her Wilson was going to sit for the remainder of the game, regardless of injury, due to the Seahawks' big lead. Oliver reported that Wilson would not return to the game. According to ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia, Wilson will get an MRI but is expected to be ready for next week.? Jeremy Langford, RB, Chicago Bears:?Langford suffered an ankle injury in...

Pam Oliver, Indiferrence, and the Disrespecting of Black Women
Huffington Post - about 3 years
For four quarters of the NFL NFC Championship game on Sunday, January 18, Pam Oliver was the person who was dehumanized on social media. Richard Sherman was later criticized for his words; Pam Oliver was mocked for her appearance. There have been hundreds of articles and probably millions of individual discussions since then analyzing Richard Sherman and the characterizations of Black men in the United States. Unfortunately, I've only found two articles (from Philly.com and Howard University Radio) that have discussed the remarks directed at Pam Oliver on the eve of MLK Day. My experiences growing up in the east side of Austin, Texas and working at schools and youth serving organizations in Washington, DC have made me realize that there seems to be a reluctance in the Black community -- and American society in general -- to publicly confront certain issues, depending on the gender which is affected. I think the gleeful insults directed at Pam Oliver were representative of the disre ...

Good audience for Broncos-Ravens opener; NFL media updates for 2013 season
Houston Chronicle - over 3 years
NBC’s broadcast of the Peyton Manning show Thursday night from Denver drew 25.1 million viewers for the NFL season opener. That’s up from 23.9 million for Cowboys-Giants a year ago and the third-best total for the Thursday NFL openers, which date back to 2002. The broadcast, which was delayed by weather for more than a half-hour, drew a 14.9 Nielsen rating and 26 share, which matches the time-shifted rating on KPRC (Channel 2). With that, let’s take a look at assorted network lineups for the NFL season: CBS – In addition to the long-running “The NFL Today,” CBS goes full-bore into Sunday morning rhetoric on CBS Sports Network with “That Other Pregame Show,” which airs from 8 a.m. to noon. Not sure I’m crazy about the title (why slight your own product?), but there is much that escapes me about marketing strategy. Adam Schein will host with retired linebacker Bart Scott, former Raiders executive Amy Trask, Brandon Tierney of CBS Sports Radio, Allie LaForce and fantasy sports rep ...

Sideline Reporter Suffered Concussion
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
Fox Sports reporter Pam Oliver didn't sit out of the broadcast after getting hit in the head by an errant pass during warmups of an NFL preseason game back in August. She didn't know until the next day that she had suffered a concussion, as first reported by Bob Raissman of the New York Daily News. A throw by Indianapolis Colts backup quarterback Chandler Harnish struck Oliver in the face just before the Colts-Giants preseason game. Oliver shrugged it off at first -- she said she didn't want to be "wimpy" -- and later found herself wondering how NFL players continue to play after getting hit. “Players don’t want to be reminded about their concussions. They don’t want to be known as the guy who went down with one. They downplay it,” said Oliver, who also told the Daily News that she spent five days in a dark room in her home. “Then it happens to me and I start wondering how these guys go back to being hit, taking all that punishment, a week or two later.” Days after ...

Jill Baughman: Steelers Lose to Redskins 24-13 in Sloppy Game Full of Penalties, Injuries & Turnovers (Ah, Preseason)
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
So the Pittsburgh Steelers played the Washington Redskins (am I still allowed to call them that?) for their second preseason game on Monday Night Football. I know, I know, you probably read "second preseason game" and quickly clicked on over to something else. Maybe a recap of a game that actually mattered? Okay, it matters to the rookies and coaches, blah blah blah, but to fans, well ... I suppose it gives us something to watch and an excuse to attend a game while it's still warm outside. Though watching Pam Oliver get slammed in the head with a football during the Indianapolis/Giants game on Sunday night was actually one of the most shocking things I've seen all preseason (just glad she's okay -- that could have been really bad!). I'll keep it short. For your sake and mine. So, right, preseason, ugh. You know it's never a good sign when the official Pittsburgh Steelers Facebook page has updates like, "Yay, we got a first down!" I may have paraphrased a bit, but you get ...

Only use A&E – in an emergency
The Gazette - over 4 years
HEALTH chiefs have urged people to only use emergency medical services if absolutely necessary during a doctors’ strike today. However, bosses at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust moved to reassure patients “most” services – including all emergency and essential health care and community health services – will carry on as normal during the industrial action. It has been organised by the British Medical Association (BMA) in a dispute with the Government over the future of the NHS pension scheme. And Pat Oliver, director of operations for the trust, told The Gazette: “We are working very hard to minimise disruption to patients and ensure services are safe. “We have worked in partnership with our BMA representatives and senior doctors in order to ensure we are able to provide essential care during the day of action. “We would, however, ask people to think carefully before attending A&E on the day for any non-urgent care needs, instead people should contact their ...

Riot Remembered: What the Violence Taught Me
Highland Park-Mount Washington P - almost 5 years
What do I remember about the L.A. Riots? My memory of the time is divided in four almost distinct areas. First, my wife and I were going though some personal tumult, which was living large and loud in my head and was coloring everything in my life at that time. In those years we were living in Frogtown and I was the full time parent, and working from home. We took the kids to school, and the other parents hanging about were hysterical and their kids were terrified, so Mrs. O’Roscoe and I did the only reasonable thing. We took the kids to Disneyland. The place was nearly empty. I found the fear in some people’s faces amusing. I talked to more than one family that came to L.A. for a vacation and had been planning the trip for a while. They had heard about the riots and were either confident that the riots weren’t near Anaheim or were in fear that the riots were going to find them in Adventureland.  Some were feeling guilty that they were too cheap to give up the deposit ...
