Mexican TV reporter Ines Sainz, whose offensive treatment at the hands of the Jets created major controversy last month, said she will not go into NFL locker rooms and instead interview players on the field or sideline. Sainz, who is scheduled to visit the Patriots soon, spoke Thursday at a news conference in Los Angeles. "I'm not going into the locker rooms anymore," she said. "It's not a good place right now for me. I don't want to be in there."
Sainz toook a month off after the Jets incident, "because I don't want to be the focus," she said. "I'm not looking for that kind of publicity. It affects my career and development in the States." As for criticism that her clothing was inappropriate, she said: "If I dressed properly or not, I have nine years of my career making interviews with top players all around the world and I can't believe that someone says my outfit is not proper. It's unfair...
Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show as part of Patriots Friday on WEEI as the Pats prepare to host the Ravens on Sunday.
Mayo talked about the playoff game last season in which the Ravens ran roughshod over the Patriots from beginning to end in a 33-14 rout. "I just remember going out there and just having a terrible game from the first play to the last play," he said. "Those guys came out and put a pretty good beating on us. This year, I think the guys are refocused on the goal and taking it one game at a time. Hopefully, we can go out there and get it done."
Added Mayo: "Last year we came out and we kind of put our toe in the water to see if it was too hot or too cold. Those guys dove in head-first. That's what we have to do this year. We have to dive in head-first, and from the first play to the last play, go out there and...

Billy Hunter, the executive director of the NBA player’s union, said in a statement that the union would mount a legal challenge against the league’s crackdown on technical fouls. Hunter added that the players were not consulted about the rule change before it was implemented.
Here’s the statement:
“We have not seen any increase in the level of ‘complaining’ to the officials and we believe that players as a whole have demonstrated appropriate behavior toward the officials. Worse yet, to the extent the harsher treatment from the referees leads to a stifling of the players’ passion and exuberance for their work, we fear these changes may actually harm our product. The changes were made without proper consultation with the Players Association, and we intend to file an appropriate legal challenge.”
The union’s move comes on the heels of Kevin...
The Red Sox announced that they have agreed to a one-year contract with catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia for the 2011 season. The non-guaranteed split contract, which a source told WEEI.com is for $250,000 at the minor league level and $750,000 in the majors, allows the two sides to avoid salary arbitration.
The Sox traded for the switch-hitting catcher at the July 31 trade deadline, acquiring him from Texas in exchange for three minor-league prospects: pitcher Roman Mendez, catcher Michael Thomas (whom the Rangers converted to a pitcher) and first baseman Chris McGuiness. Saltalamacchia, 25, went 3-for-19 with three doubles in 10 games for the Sox before undergoing season-ending surgery in September to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb on Sept. 28, producing a final line of .158/.360/.316/.676.
With Saltalamacchia's deal having been signed, the remaining Red Sox eligible for arbitration are Jonathan...
