We tackle four topics that will decide once and for all who the best is between Brady and Manning.
Rodney talked about the Patriots difficult schedule ahead, Brandon Marshall being a leader for the Chicago Bears, Brandon Browner needing to get more playing time, and throws in his two cents about Peyton Manning being considered a "choke artist" if he doesn't win another ring.

There was a shocking scene at the European Youth Boxing Championships in Zagreb, Croatia, as light heavyweight Vido Loncar attacked the referee after losing his bout.

As the referee called the fighters together, Loncar, furious that the referee had stopped the fight, unleashed a hard right directly to the official’s face, knocking him to the canvas.

As stunned Lithuanian opponent Algirdas Baniulis scampered away, Loncar continued to hit the fallen official until two men from outside the ring reached through the ropes and grabbed the fighter, dragging him out of the ring.

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

A California woman tried to slide down the chimney into the house of a man she had met online and dated a few times. Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa, 30, was arrested Sunday after screaming for help when she got stuck. Firefighters needed about two hours to free her, and she later was arrested for illegal entry and providing false information.

“How many times does this have to happen every year for somebody to realize you can’t break into somebody’s house sliding down their damn chimney,” Dennis said.

“Weren’t you like 8 years old when you realized that there was stuff in the way?” Callahan said. “I mean, you saw plenty of Christmas shows that Santa could get down there, but after like fourth grade you realized you couldn’t do it.”

The man said Nunez-Figueroa had tried to break into his home before, climbing on the roof.

Said Dennis: “They went out on six dates and then he said, ‘Uh, I’ve had enough, I don’t want to see you anymore.’ And she said, ‘No, I’m going to be up on your roof.’ ”

Said Callahan: “She didn’t want to try like a window or a basement door?”

– Former White House intern Monica Lewinsky gave her first public speech Monday at a conference in Philadelphia and talked about her 1990s affair with President Bill Clinton and the public humiliation she endured when it was revealed.

“Sixteen years ago, fresh out of college, a 22 year old intern in the White House — and more than averagely romantic — I fell in love with my boss in a 22-year old sort of way. It happens,” Lewinsky said. “But my boss was the president of the United States. That probably happens less often. Now I deeply regret it for many reasons, not the least of which is that people were hurt. And that is never OK.”

Lewinsky said she is striving to end cyberbullying, claiming that she was the first person to have her reputation destroyed via the Internet.

Said Callahan: “I’d rather be with the chick in the chimney.”

– Double-amputee Olympic runner Oscar Pistorius began serving his five-year prison sentence Tuesday, immediately after being sentenced by a judge in South Africa for the negligent killing of his girlfriend last February.

Judge Thokozile Masipa cited Pistorius’ “gross negligence” for shooting Reeva Steenkamp multiple times through a bathroom door in his home. He had claimed he thought she was a burglar.

Masipa also sentenced Pistorius to three years in prison for firing a gun in a restaurant a few weeks before Steenkamp’s death, although that sentence was suspended.

According to South African legal experts, Pistorius’ five-year term in the maximum he can serve; he will be eligible for house arrest in less than a year.

Pistorius, who had been very emotional throughout the trial, stood during the judge’s announcement before being escorted down a flight of stairs to a police van.

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.

Masipa found Pistorius guilty of culpable homicide last month but acquitted him of murder. In announcing the sentence Tuesday, she said: “The following is what I consider is a sentence that is fair and just both to society and the accused.”

The prosecution expressed disappointment in the culpable homicide conviction but did not have an immediate decision about whether or not to appeal the sentence.

Said prosecution spokesman Nathi Mncube: “We are satisfied with the fact that he will be serving some time in prison. … It’s not only about vengeance, but it is about making sure that there is a fair and just process.”

– New Jets wide receiver Percy Harvin met the New York media Monday, following reports that he was shipped out of Seattle in part because he wasn’t getting along with his teammates.

“I’m definitely not a perfect person,” Harvin acknowledged after his first practice with his new team. “I have a lot of things that I wish I could have done a little differently. But I’m moving forward. I’m learning from those lessons.

“I’m happy to be here right now and looking to make the most out of it.”

Harvin, who was traded from the Vikings to the Seahawks in 2013, admitted he was involved in “incidents” with then-Seattle teammates Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin, but he declined to discuss details. Coach Rex Ryan had no interest in talking about Harvin’s questionable past, either.

“I don’t think I need to,” Ryan said. “To me, things happen and every single guy has had something, but to me, it’s just all about right now and moving forward.”

General manager John Idzik denied he made the deal because he has been the subject of widespread criticism based on the team he assembled. He said the risks appear worth the potential reward.

Said Idzik: “I look at it as this could be a potential coup for the New York Jets.”

– Kings defenseman Slava Voynov was suspended by the NHL on Monday after his arrest earlier in the day on suspicion of domestic violence.

Police were called to Voynov’s neighborhood in Redondo Beach after a neighbor called to report a woman screaming and crying, but they could not find anyone. About 90 minutes later, the 24-year-old Russian was arrested at a Torrance hospital on suspicion of corporal injury to a spouse after hospital personnel called police upon treating the alleged victim.

Voynov posted $50,000 bail and is due back in court Dec. 1.

“These developments are of great concern to our organization,” the Kings said in a statement. “We support the NHL‘s decision to suspend Slava Voynov indefinitely during this process, and we will continue to take appropriate action as the legal proceedings and the investigation by the NHL take their course.”

Voynov is in his fourth season with the Kings, having won two Stanley Cups with the team. He signed a six-year, $25 million contract extension in June 2013.

ON THIS DAY TRIVIA (answer below): On Oct. 21, 1975, the Red Sox beat the Reds in Game 6 of the World Series on Carlton Fisk’s 12th-inning home run off Pat Darcy. Which pitcher got the win for the Sox?

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I’ve been very fortunate. To think I would have the opportunity to do that when I was starting out is crazy. And I’€™m still part of a great team that has a great opportunity to achieve even more. You don’€™t think about these things when you’€™re a kid, certainly I never did. I think I’€™ve just been so fortunate over the years to be on a great team, great teammates, and throw great relationships and friends in. Certainly the winning, because I think that’€™s what sets our team apart from a lot of other teams, has been our ability to win on a consistent basis year in and year out, no matter what the circumstances or situations. So to be a part of an organization that that’€™s what we’ve been able to accomplish has been unbelievable. I’€™m a lucky guy. I’€™m a lucky guy, and still going.
