BC gets big win over Virginia Tech

Reggie Jackson scored 20 points to lead Boston College to a crucial victory Tuesday night, a 76-61 rout of Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va.

 

Also for BC, Corey Raji contributed 19 points and 12 rebounds, and senior walk-on John Cahill added to his legend with 12 points on perfect shooting from the field (2-for-2, both 3-pointers) and the free throw line (6-for-6).

 

With the win, the Eagles (18-11, 8-7 ACC) swept the Hokies and kept alive their hopes of an NCAA tournament bid. BC closes out the regular season on Sunday afternoon when it hosts Wake Forest.

Judge rules against NFL owners

The NFL players won a major victory on Tuesday, as a federal judge backed the NFLPA in a dispute over the release of television revenue.

U.S. District Judge David Doty said that the league’s decision to carve out $4 billion in additional TV revenue — referred to some as “lockout insurance” — violated its agreement with the union, which had argued that the league was effectively stockpiling money to prepare for a lockout.

The union had asked that the TV money be placed in escrow until the end of any lockout.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello downplayed the significance of the ruling, telling The Associated Press in an e-mail that clubs were “prepared for any contingency.”

“Today’s ruling will have no effect on our efforts to negotiate a new, balanced labor agreement,” Aiello wrote in an e-mail to the AP.

Meanwhile, the players clearly were...

MLB fined Red Sox owner Henry $500K

Red Sox principal owner John Henry, in an interview on The Big Show, said that he was fined $500,000 by Major League Baseball for comments that he made about the sport's current financial system. In late 2009, Henry told the Boston Globe that "seven chronically uncompetitive teams, five of whom have had baseball’s highest operating profits," had received over $1 billion in revenue-sharing money. 

 

Major League Baseball took objection to the public comments -- which, Henry noted, were subsequently validated by leaked documents about team profits -- and fined the Sox owner. As such, he was relucant to discuss the state of baseball's economics.

 

"There’s not much I can say, because the last time I made a comment, I was fined $500,000. The large markets aren’t...
