Patriots fans want to help pay NFL's 'Deflategate' fine

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 05/13/2015 - 22:55

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady speaks at Salem State University in SalemThe loyal fans of the New England Patriots, angered by the suspension of Tom Brady and $1 million fine levied against the team for the "Deflategate" scandal, have opened a fund-raising drive to help the team pay the bill. A Patriots fan looking to raise money to pay the fine created a GoFundMe web page titled "Paying the bill of the PATRIOTS," and as of Wednesday morning fans had donated $13,538. While the $1 million fine is large by National Football League standards, it wouldn't dent the bottom line of a team valued by Forbes at $2.6 billion in 2014. "So whatever is donated will be donated to the New England Patriots in help with the fine!" Brady was suspended for four games, and the team was fined a record $1 million and forced to surrender two draft picks for purposely deflating the footballs in the AFC title game last January, the NFL said on Monday after releasing a 243-page report on its investigation.

Gay rights supporters score two victories in conservative Arkansas

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 05/13/2015 - 22:30
By Steve Barnes LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Reuters) - Gay rights advocates have scored two victories in Arkansas with the approval of local anti-discrimination measures in the state's most populous county and an Ozark Mountain tourist town despite conservative opposition. In Pulaski County, which includes the state capital Little Rock, the local governing body on Tuesday voted 9-3 to give initial approval to an ordinance barring discrimination in hiring based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Last month, the city government of Little Rock approved a nearly identical statute. In Eureka Springs, a popular tourist town nestled in the Ozark Mountains with about 2,200 people including a substantial gay population, more than 70 percent of voters on Tuesday backed an anti-discrimination ordinance.
