Belichick: 'Don't think [fight] is a big deal'

FOXBORO -- Saying he's seen much worse in his coaching career in the NFL, Bill Belichick said Thursday he isn't that concerned that the scuffle at Wednesday night's practice between Nate Solder and Brandon Spikes crossed any line of competitiveness among teammates.

"Football is competitive, and we're in a competitive camp, so I think some of those things are just part of football," Belichick said of the fight that sent Spikes to the locker room for a brief while with training staff before returning to the field. "Football is football. We deal with a lot of things in football," he answered. "I don't think it's a big deal."

Belichick dismissed the suggestion that a fight in camp could create a bond among players, adding he couldn't think of any instance where that was the case. He did add some humorous perspective when he was compared to Jeff Van Gundy and the legendary moment when the Knicks coach was on the ground...

Douglas wins gymnastics gold, Raisman 4th

Gabby Douglas became the first U.S. gymnast to win an individual and team Olympic gold medal as she captured the all-around title with her performance Thursday in London. Needham's Aly Raisman rallied in her final event to tie for third place but lost the tiebreaker and missed out on the bronze.

Douglas, the third straight American to win the Olympic all-around title, took the lead in the first event and stayed there, finishing with a score of 62.232, less than three-tenths better than Russian Viktoria Komova.

Douglas scored a 15.966 on vault, while Raisman scored a solid 15.9, putting the Americans 1-2 after the first of four events. On the uneven bars, Raisman scored a 14.333 while Douglas received a 15.733. On the third event, the balance beam, Douglas got a 15.500 while Raisman wobbled and nearly fell and was scored a 14.200, dropping her to fifth overall.

Douglas hit a 15.033 on the floor exercise to secure the gold. Raisman followed...

Kurkjian: Manager should choose coaches

ESPN's Tim Kurkjian appeared on Mut & Merloni on Thursday to talk about the issues surrounding Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine and pitchers Josh Beckett and Jon Lester.

Almost the entire Red Sox season has been wrought with rumors of clubhouse issues, and fingers have been pointed at Valentine. The manager has been accused of having a poor relationship with his coaches, who were selected by the team.

"I think [the organization] should have let him have his own coaches," Kurkjian said. "I'm saying any new manager should have a say on who his coaches are going to be. I firmly believe that. In 32 years of covering baseball, the coaches have to be your best friends in a lot of ways because when things go poorly you need somebody to turn to and discuss. I'm not sure that's the case in Boston. I'm not sure Bobby was as well equipped as he could have been."

Added Kurkjian: "I think way too much is...

Canseco files for bankruptcy protection

Former major league star Jose Canseco, who is on leave from the Can-Am League's Worcester Tornadoes, filed for bankruptcy protection in Nevada.

Canseco, 48, is seeking asset liquidation in Chapter 7 documents filed Tuesday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Las Vegas. According to his filing, as reported by the Las Vegas Sun, Canseco lists $20,850 in assets and $1.686 million in liabilities, including $506,000 owed to the IRS.

Canseco was hitting .194 with one home run, seven RBIs, 10 walks and 24 strikeouts in 20 games for the Tornadoes when he was placed on the disabled list on June 16. There was speculation then that Canseco planned to retire, but the team has stated that Canseco remains a member of the team and continues to be paid, yet with no timetable for a return.

Canseco batted .266 with 462 home runs and 1,407 RBIs during his 17-year major league career, which included a two-year stint with the Red Sox (1995-96). The six-time All-Star has...
