NFL Doesn't Punish Jets For Unprofessional Conduct

The NFL won’t punish the New York Jets after the league investigated an incident with TV Azteca reporter Ines Sainz.

The Association for Women in Sports Media filed a complaint in behalf of Sainz after several Jets players and coaches were harassing the former Miss Universe contestant at practice on Sept. 11.

As a result of this incident, the NFL will start a workplace conduct training program for all 32 teams. New York Jets owner Woody Johnson will underwrite the training, which will begin this season.

“Commissioner Goodell determined that while there was unprofessional conduct, Woody Johnson and his staff acted promptly to correct the situation, including a personal apology to Ms. Sainz and arranging a professional education session for the Jets on workplace conduct,” the NFL said in a statement on Friday.

Manny Ramirez's Return to Boston Causes Ticket Price Spike

The Boston Red Sox are dead and gone from the playoff race, but there’s a reason to go to Fenway Park: Manny Ramirez returns with the Chicago White Sox for a three-game set starting Friday.

Ticket prices are up 14 percent since the Windy City club traded for the former Red Sox slugger. While Friday night’s average price is just $88 – well below the season average of $119 – Sunday’s affair will cost $139 per seat. That’s a lot of money to watch two bad baseball teams play a meaningless game in September. (Yes, the White Sox are only 3.5 games out, but they aren’t catching Minnesota.)

For Bostonians, the opportunity to boo Manny is worth the extra cost, apparently. Increased ticket prices. Just Manny being Manny.
