The vehicle is as classy as the city where I headed to test it out, the 2016 BMW 3 Series 340i, a sporty rendition of a luxury sedan offering comfort, style and power behind the wheel.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Four of America’s wealthiest businessmen laid the foundation for Ted Cruz’s now-surging Republican presidential campaign and have redefined the role of political donors.

Pittsburgh Steelers assistant coach Mike Munchak has absolutely no chill. Towards the end of the first quarter of the Steelers’ Wild Card matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday night, Munchak yanked a handful of Bengals safety Reggie Nelson’s dreadlocks. Nelson barrelled into the Steelers’ sidelines after pushing running back Jordan Todman out-of-bounds. Munchak may have felt like Nelson unnecessarily shoved his running back into the sideline — Todman was nearly out-out-bounds when Nelson hit him, and the extra push sent Todman crashing into the bench. Todman should have been the star of the play for his darting run, but one of his coaches overreacted to a bit of chippiness on Nelson’s part.

Even after getting sacked five times, Tom Brady is a determined quarterback whose only end goal is getting the win. That’s the mantra this season for a player that is hell-bent on proving to the world that he is deserving of his four championship rings, and on his way to getting one more. The Dallas Cowboys looked confused, bewildered, outplayed and just downright scared at times on Sunday when being pitted against the New England Patriots and their golden boy, Tom Brady.
No one knows exactly why part of Andrew Smith’s business class airline reservation from Salt Lake City to San Juan, Puerto Rico, vanished.

Terry Bradshaw is sick of football players like Dallas Cowboys’ Greg Hardy getting passes on domestic violence — and he’s even more upset that the NFL continues to give them. A fired-up Bradshaw didn’t mince words as he ripped into Hardy during the “Fox NFL Sunday” pre-game show. “Anybody, in my opinion, who lays a hand on a woman, I don’t care who you are, my friend: You never come back in this league,” Bradshaw said. “I really, really seriously hope, eventually, we never have a place in the NFL for people who … strike a woman,” Bradshaw said as his co-hosts sat in silence. Terry Bradshaw gives his heartfelt viewpoint on Greg Hardy's domestic abuse case. https://t.co/LfMelAXzmj — FOX Sports: NFL (@NFLonFOX) October 11, 2015 But Hardy, who was signed to the Cowboys in March, wasn’t the only target of Bradshaw’s criticism.
When convicted domestic abuser Greg Hardy returns to the NFL on Sunday, his history of violence against women will follow him to the team parking lot, through AT&T Stadium, into the locker room and out onto the field. But should he ever harm a woman again, that same history will push him off the field and out of the league for life. In the 13 months since TMZ published video of Ray Rice knocking out Janay Palmer in a casino elevator , both the NFL and the Canadian Football League have developed new domestic violence policies in close association with domestic violence experts that take a “help me help you” approach to aggressors and victims alike. Buried deep within both of those new domestic violence policies is another type of possible punishment, perhaps the ultimate punishment a league can hand down to any man who makes his living playing football: a lifetime ban. In the NFL’s case, it’s two strikes and you’re out.
