Algerian player slaps female reporter

Following his team's 1-0 loss to the United States Wednesday at the World Cup and last-place finish in Group C, Algerian soccer player Rafik Saifi slapped a female journalist in the face in the interview zone. The reporter, Asma Halimi of the Alergian newspaper Competition, retaliated by striking Saifi in the mouth.

 

Halimi and Saifi previously had a dispute about an article she had written that was critical of the player.

 

"I said nothing to him and he reached over and hit me," Halimi told Yahoo! Sports. "So I hit him back. I said nothing to him first."

 

Halimi said she planned to file a complaint with FIFI and Algerian officials.

Ainge on Big Show: No Doc decision yet

Danny Ainge said on The Big Show that Doc Rivers has not made a decision on his coaching future and that he wants him to take his time. "The reality is that [Rivers] has not made a decision," Ainge said. "I don't want him to make a decision too soon." Ainge also said that the Phoenix Suns have not contacted him about their vacant general manager job and that he is staying in Boston.

 

"I have a contract," Ainge said. "I love what I'm doing and I love the people I work with. I have a great relationship with the ownership and we still have things to accomplish here. That's just a rumor that has no substance whatsoever."

 

Ainge said that though he does own land in Phoenix he does not have a home there. For more on the Celtics check Green Street

Sources: Sox show interest in Everett

According to a sources familiar with the situation, the Red Sox have shown some interest in shortstop Adam Everett, who was designated for assignment by the Detroit Tigers on June 8 and released by the club seven days later. Everett, who is currently a free agent, would only cost the Major League minimum with the Tigers responsible for what was left on the infielder's one-year, $1.55 million deal he signed with Detroit prior to the 2010 season.

 

It is believed that the Red Sox wouldn't attempt to make any such signing until a move is made to make a roster spot available (perhaps in a transaction involving Mike Lowell). Right now the Sox are using Bill Hall as their backup shortstop and second baseman.

 

Everett, the Red Sox' first-round pick in the 1998 amateur draft (12th overall), was traded by the Sox with minor leaguer Greg Miller for outfielder Carl Everett prior to the 2000 season. In 31 games with the Tigers this...
