4.Back to the Jets. Darrelle Revis, who now calls New England home, was perhaps the best defensive player in the league during his time with the Jets as the sole proprietor of “Revis Island” until he tore his ACL. But the well-compensated All-Pro cornerback and the organization always seemed to be in a contract dispute. After six years with Gang Green, Revis was traded to Tampa Bay, where he spent one season before joining the Patriots and getting his wish to play in the ultimate NFL game. Just another reason for Jets fans to scrap Super Bowl plans and hide under a blanket with a bottle of scotch.5.Patriots cornerback Kyle Arrington is the last member of Hofstra’s now-defunct college football program to make the NFL. Arrington went un-drafted in 2009 but was later picked up by the Patriots. The Maryland native often bemoans not having a college team to boast about when his fellow teammates celebrate their respective alma maters’ accomplishments.Long Islanders may not have a team—or a Long Islander—to root for, but Arrington’s story of hard work and determination despite the odds is one that we can all appreciate—even if he is a Patriot. View image | gettyimages.com 6.There may not be a more interesting character in the NFL than Marshawn Lynch, he of the media allergy. Lynch is an old-school running back who seems to get stronger with each and every hit. He may be the hardest back to take down in the game today, and is embarking on a Hall of Fame career.But it’s hard for fans outside Seattle to appreciate him because he refuses to speak with the media. And when he does, he offers pre-determined, one-line responses, like he did at Media Day. Here’s to hoping the Seahawks win so that poor on-field reporter can shove a microphone right in Lynch’s face after a Seattle victory. Word! View image | gettyimages.com 3.The biggest scandal this country has probably seen since Watergate has dominated the headlines the last week, and that’s the discovery that the Patriots played the first half of the AFC Championship Game against the hapless Indianapolis Colts with 11 of 12 balls that were deflated—a headline writer’s dream (just ask the New York Daily News). Apparently, deflated balls are easier to throw in crummy weather conditions just like those in Foxborough on Jan. 18. It doesn’t sound like a big deal, but it is nonetheless against the rules to leak air out of the balls, which are inspected by referees before the game. So, if the Patriots are found to have intentionally deflated footballs, then it’s only fair to label them cheaters. Again.Football air pressure should have no bearing on the Super Bowl, since the NFL provides all of the pigskins for the big game. Whatever the NFL’s investigation uncovers, at least we got to hear Tom Brady talk in great length about how he likes to handle his balls. Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York [dropcap]T[/dropcap]om Brady’s preference of footballs, the New England Patriots’ oft-criticized coach (who happened to spend one day as coach of the NY Jets), a Seattle Seahawks running back who’s allergic to the media, another ex-Jets coach at the helm of a Super Bowl squad and the last Hofstra University player to make the NFL are just some of the headlines we’ll be interested in come kickoff Sunday.New York may not have a dog in this fight, but there are story lines aplenty worth following this Super Bowl, especially if you’re a Jets fans.1.Let’s start with those tortured Gang Green fans, a devoted group that hasn’t seen their favorite team raise the Lombardi Trophy in 46 years. The Giants have won four since then and the hated Patriots could equal that mark with a win over the Seahawks. And, if the Pats do halt Seattle’s quest for a repeat, they’ll do so with one of the Jets’ all-time great players on their roster: Darrelle Revis.Not only are Jets fans still reeling from a disastrous 4-12 season that prompted the firing of coach Rex Ryan and general manager John Idzik, but they may also have to witness another Pats Super Bowl victory celebration, replete with Bill Belichick—and his hoodie—soaked in Gatorade and confetti and whatever magic potion he conjures up to put his New England team in contention year after year. View image | gettyimages.com Belichick famously resigned as Jets head coach on the very day the organization was about to announce his hiring. Even more shocking was the way he quit, penning a note on a napkin with the words that he had resigned “as HC of NYJ.” By comparison, he’s spent 15 years with the Patriots, winning three Super Bowls and advancing to the title game six times, racking up 174 regular season wins along the way. During that same period, the Jets have had only eight winning seasons and zero Super Bowl appearances, despite blistery proclamations from the team’s former blowhard coach.Here’s a taste of what Belichick’s introductory press conference-turned-resignation statement sounded like:2.Then there’s Pete Carroll, who was fired after just one season with the Jets, in which the team went 6-10. Carroll is seeking back-to-back Super Bowl titles, a feat not accomplished since the Patriots won consecutive titles in 2003 and 2004. Carroll was a successful college coach before the Seahawks offered him a chance to rewrite his NFL career.Win or lose, Carroll has cemented his place alongside Belichick atop the hierarchy of great NFL coaches. What else do Sunday’s coaching rivals share? Remarkable success since leaving the Jets.
BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — The ShowPlace held their second annual Halloween Hoopla today. The ShowPlace says they have room for more vendors and will be holding their autumn bake sale November 7. Trick-or-treater Baron Keller says it was awesome to dress up today. The ShowPlace asked vendors to pass out candy to kids who came in to trick-or-treat. “We thought that Halloween was canceled due to COVID-19, so it’s nice to get candy and see everyone,” Keller said. The flea market had their usual vendors in attendance, but many were dressed up in their spookiest Halloween costumes, including children.

Chad McNicholas was arrested Monday in Greensburg.GREENSBURG, Ind. – Insulting a law enforcement officer in the same restaurant you skip the bill on is a good way to perhaps end up in jail.25-year-old Chad McNicholas, of Westport, was booked into the Decatur County Jail Monday on suspicion of theft, resisting law enforcement and public intoxication.McNicholas was dining at a Mexican restaurant in Greensburg where he allegedly insulted a deputy and then failed to pay the $30 bill before leaving on a bicycle, the Greensburg Daily News reports.The deputy, who was dining at the restaurant, called fellow officers who were able to locate someone matching the description on Davidson Street. Police say the suspect tried to ride past the officer before being thrown to the ground and taken into custody.Authorites said McNicholas had a blood alcohol content of 0.147 percent. The legal limit in Indiana is 0.08 percent.
“He’s one of the centres who has played the most in that position, probably himself and Robbie (Henshaw), but knowing the likes of Luke (Fitzgerald) have already played at this World Cup, Darren Cave can obviously play there, Keith Earls has slotted in as well. “So versatility is a huge positive for us.” Scrum coach Greg Feek and captain Paul O’Connell revealed a sombre mood in the Ireland camp on bidding Payne an unhappy farewell on Saturday morning. “It’s a massive loss and we really feel for him,” Feek said. “It was a bit of a moment for him. “It’s always tough to lose one of your family members like that. “His foot just got re-checked this week. (On Friday) evening he got the confirmation. “You try to include him and we wanted to try to get him out there this week, but it was also about managing that process while we were finding out how he was.” New Zealand-born Payne has excelled in Ireland’s midfield since his November 2014 debut, helping Schmidt’s huge battle of moving the side past the twin retirements of Brian O’Driscoll and Gordon D’Arcy. Payne and Robbie Henshaw have forged a formidable defensive unit in the centres, and Earls will have to be at his very best to maintain that level against France, especially with juggernaut centre Mathieu Bastareaud careering through his channel. “He’s a big loss,” Ireland captain O’Connell said. “What he’s done in the short time he’s played for Ireland has been incredible. “He’s very calm on the pitch. He’ll tell you exactly what to do in one short sentence. “He’s had an elder statesman attitude about how he goes about things. “For the journey he’s been on to get here, it’s hugely disappointing for the group when it was announced (on Saturday) morning.” Payne flew home on Saturday morning, with Ireland delaying a decision on his replacement until after Sunday’s Pool D decider with France – but Tommy Bowe backed Ulster wing Trimble to join Joe Schmidt’s squad. “I tell you what, listen, Trimby’s a really great mate of mine – I’d love to see him out here,” Bowe said. “I think he has a fantastic opportunity to be here. He was definitely a guy who trained exceptionally well during pre-season. “He’s a very experienced customer. He’s shown exactly what sort of quality he has and when it comes to these big matches. We know what we can expect from a player of his quality. “So I think Andrew is definitely one person who will be eagerly hoping that he’s the man who gets the call-up, but unfortunately I know as little as anyone at the minute and thankfully it’s not my call who comes out.” Ireland will top Pool D and meet Argentina with victory over France in Cardiff on Sunday, with Munster’s Keith Earls continuing at 13 in Payne’s absence. Bowe backed Ireland’s depth and versatility across the back line to help offset Payne’s loss, despite the Ulster star being head coach Schmidt’s clear first choice at outside centre. “That’s one of the benefits with us knowing that Jared has had to bow out,” Bowe said. Ulster’s Payne was ruled out of Ireland’s World Cup campaign with a foot fracture on Saturday, after initially being passed fit in midweek. The 29-year-old suffered a bad reaction to training on Wednesday and scans revealed the extent of his problem on Friday night. Andrew Trimble has been backed to replace luckless centre Jared Payne in Ireland’s World Cup squad. Press Association

Andrew Parsons says about 5% of spending is being cut from the IPC’s budget. Parsons says the problem is due partly to broadcast rights holders who want to delay their payments until the product is delivered. Parsons says it’s not a question of “losing money” but rather some temporary belt tightening.— The players and coach on Switzerland’s national soccer team have declined to take more than $1 million of payments that were due from their federation in 2020. The team was scheduled to play in the now-postponed European Championship in June and had two games in Qatar canceled last month because of the coronavirus pandemic. The shutdown of games has cost the Swiss soccer body millions of dollars. Federation chairman Dominique Blanc says it’s a “magnificent gesture” from the players. Blanc tested positive for the virus three weeks ago. Team captain Stephan Lichtsteiner says “we wanted to set an example and show solidarity.”— A two-time Olympic finalist in the 800 meters has died after getting infected with the coronavirus.

Brooke Ammerman scored the game-winning goal in overtime against Robert Morris Saturday.[/media-credit]Although it was an unexpectedly intense fight Saturday at the Kohl Center, the No. 6 UW women’s hockey team was able to walk away with an overtime win over the Robert Morris Colonials.It was the Badgers who struck first, keeping the Colonials offense at bay throughout the first period. But Robert Morris held on tight throughout, taking advantage by scoring on two of its power plays and driving the game into overtime. It was the Badgers’ sophomore Brooke Ammerman who had the final word, however, knocking in a goal off an assist from junior Mallory Deluce to seal the 3-2 win.Wisconsin head coach Tracey DeKeyser was happy to see her team get a win in the series after the strong effort they showed in both games.“It’s nice to get a win,” DeKeyser said. “We regrouped really well in the neutral zone, we were doing some great stretch breakouts. It’s nice to be rewarded for hard work.”In the first period, UW came out strong expecting Robert Morris’s physical style of play. Fifteen minutes into the period, UW senior Emily Kranz drove in a goal off a rebound, putting the Badgers ahead 1-0. The momentum of the game soon changed, however, as Robert Morris used its power plays to the fullest advantage. Colonials’ freshman Jamie Joslin shot the puck into the net past Badgers goalie Alannah McCready 10 minutes into the second period.The Badgers were quick to respond to the Colonials goal, though. Before the series with Robert Morris, Wisconsin had only scored twice out of 44 power plays this season, but Wisconsin finally capitalized off one of only three power plays in the game, as junior Kelly Nash slid the puck past Colonials goalie Daneca Butterfield 14 minutes into the second period to put the Badgers ahead 2-1.But Robert Morris was not ready to quit just yet. In the third period the Colonials utilized their fifth power play of the game just seven minutes in to tie the game up at two on a goal by sophomore Brianna Delaney, ultimately driving the game into overtime.The Colonials quickly had a chance to win, getting a penalty shot one minute into overtime. McCready was able to force Delaney to the side and make the save, allowing the Badgers to still have a chance for the win. McCready was at first unprepared for the penalty shot but was happy she was able to come away with the save.“I didn’t know it was a penalty shot at first,” McCready said. “I was hoping she would make a move because it’s harder to stop a breakaway when they shoot. … It’s always [my] goal to push them to one side so it’s easier to make a save and it ended up working out for me, so I was happy.”The Badgers were able to come away with the win 3-2 as Ammerman knocked in a goal in the third minute of overtime thanks to a nice pass from Deluce.“[Deluce] just threw it to the net and the rebound just came to me and I just went down on one knee to make sure I didn’t throw it over the top of the net,” Ammerman said of her goal.The sophomore also added that Robert Morris played a tough game and it was Wisconsin who got lucky in the end to walk away with the win.Despite being favored in the matchup, the Badgers fell to the Colonials 3-1 in the opener Friday afternoon, splitting the series with the Hockey America Conference squad.After neither team scored in the first period, it was all Robert Morris in the second as the Colonials scored twice against Wisconsin goalie Becca Ruegsegger. Although Wisconsin started a comeback midway through the third period as freshman Saige Pacholok scored the first Wisconsin goal of the game, Robert Morris clinched the win when junior Sara O’Malley scored from across the neutral zone into an empty net.Robert Morris came into the game with a very different style of defense than Wisconsin was used to. Despite preparing for the novel defense, the Badgers were unable to capitalize on their few chances throughout the first game. DeKeyser noted how the Colonials’ effective defensive system disrupted her team’s offensive attack.“They put basically their whole team in front of their net and if we’re not specific about where we’re shooting or we have our head down, you’re going to most likely hit one of them,” she said. “It’s not very pretty or sophisticated defense, it’s just effective.”After splitting their fourth series out of five this season, the Badgers are still working on being more consistent.“We’ve been inconsistent this weekend,” Dekeyser said. “That’s a sign of a young team and it adjusting to their roles, but [we’ve] got to live and learn and hopefully we have.”
