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.

The National Weather Service predicted 6 to 12 inches (15 to 30 cm) of rain for coastal areas, including southwest Louisiana, by Monday morning, exacerbated by tides up to five feet (1.5 meter) and wind gusts up to 35 mph. The rain systems were intensified by Patricia, which was downgraded to a tropical depression after crashing into Mexico’s west coast as a powerful hurricane..

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.

How Often You Really Need To Wash Your Hair

03Ago

SPECIAL FROM After years of telling us we need to shampoo every day, the hairstyling world has had a change of heart. Many stylists and barbers have embraced the anti-shampoo, or “no poo” movement, which says we should shampoo our hair far less frequently —or even, not at all—since the sulfates in lots of commercial brands strip hair of its natural oils. The no poo-ers claim that, after an initial period of funkiness, bypassing shampoo will make our locks silkier and more manageable.
