NFLPA: No vote on owners' proposal

After a conference call late Thursday night involving NFL Players Association chief DeMaurice Smith and 32 player reps that lasted just over 90 minutes, the NFLPA ultimately decided not to vote on the proposal that was given to the players earlier in the day by the owners.

The initial proposal, which was ratified by the owners by a vote of 31-0 after a day of meetings in Atlanta, was derided by many players late Thursday night as a bully tactic designed to force them to agree to a deal they either hadn’t yet seen or had the chance to ask questions about. In addition, NFLPA officials insisted that many of the points of the deal that was agreed on by the owners remain unresolved, a point Smith hit on in a pre-call e-mail that he sent to players:

“As you know the Owners have ratified their proposal to settle our differences. It is my understanding they are forwarding it to us. As you may have heard they apparently approved a supplemental...

LAPD arrests pair in Giants fan's beating

The Los Angeles Police Department arrested two new suspects in the beating of Giants fan Bryan Stow outside Dodger Stadium on Opening Day, while the original suspect is expected to be cleared, according to multiple reports.

Giovanni Ramirez was arrested in May, and while the 31-year-old was held on an unrelated parole violation charge, police indicated they believed he was responsible for Stow's injuries.

However, the defense team apparently provided evidence that raised enough questions, so police continued the investigation that led to the new arrests. The new suspects were not immediately identified.

Report: Frank Pistons' top choice

According to a tweet from Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, Celtics assistant coach Lawrence Frank is the Pistons' top choice to be the team's next head coach. Wojnarowski notes that a formal offer is expected to be extended within the next 24-36 hours. Frank was reportedly one of the final two candidates for the job along with former Hawks coach Mike Woodson.

Frank spent one season with the Celtics as Doc Rivers' top assistant. He was primarily tasked with running the team's defense, which once again was one of the league's elite. The team anticipated that Frank's tenure in Boston would be short, and this is the second straight year that Rivers will lose his top assistant. Tom Thibodeau left after the 2010 playoff run and won Coach of the Year honors in his first season with the Bulls.
