SNL’s Mocks ‘Deflategate’ … Patriots Press Conference Cold Open, with a Hint of ‘A Few Good Men’ … “YOU’RE DAMN RIGHT I DID!!!”

SNL was the latest to jump on the pile of this old, tired and over reported story of ‘Deflategate’.

Honestly, the SNL skit was a bit of a yawner. The only funny part of the ‘deflate-gate’ skit was when assistant equipment co-manager Dougy Spoons took the podium.

When the media started asking questions whether Tom Brady has instructed him to doctor the balls and that they wanted the truth, Dougy came back with Jack  Nicholson’s famous line from ‘A Few Good Men’… “You can’t handle the truth” and “You’re damn right I did.” Other than this, the rest with Belichick and Brady is a sleeper.

(Jump to the 3:30 mark for any form of humor.)

Dougy:  You can’t handle the truth! Son we live in a world that has balls. And those balls have to be inflated by men with pumps.
Who is going to do it you, you reporter Weinberg? You don’t want the truth, because deep down in places you don’t talk about at Super Bowl parties you want me on the ball, you need me on that ball.

Reporter: Did you deflate the ball?

Dougy: I did the job I was told to do.

Reporter: Did you deflate the ball!

Dougy: YOU’RE DAMN RIGHT I DID!!!

You Can’t Handle the Truth! – A Few Good Men

 

New England Patriot Impromptu Press Conference on ‘Deflategate” … Belichick Says Pats Followed Every Rule in Preparing Their Footballs for AFC Championship Game Against Colts … Also, Different Air Pressure May be to Blame

Bill Nye Belichick, the Science Guy …

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick held an impromptu press conference this afternoon to emphatically say that the Pats followed every rule in preparing footballs for the AFC Championship game and provided a possible reason as to what may have happened in the case of “deflated balls”. Although Belichick said he was not a science guy, he did a rather good job of explaining what may have occurred from a scientific standpoint.Bill Belichick said that the balls were then delivered to the game’s officiating crew with the request that theybe inflated to 12.5 pounds per square inch. Belichick told the reporters that the Pats conducted an internal investigation as to the ball preparation process and concluded the following:

Football_deflategate

He said the Patriots conducted their own internal investigation in which they replicated their game-day procedures — including what would have happened last Sunday evening before their 45-7 win against the Indianapolis Colts.

The Patriot’s internal investigation included multiple recreations of the process that occurs during games, from the point in which quarterback Tom Brady and the equipment staff begin working on a set of brand new footballs. Belichick said the Patriots’ footballs were prepared according to quarterback Tom Brady’s preferred texture before the game — a process that included what Belichick described as “vigorous rubbing” that resulted in the balls’ PSI being raised by one pound.

Belichick stated, “I’m embarrassed to talk about the amount of time I’ve put into this, relative to the challenge in front of us.” In what may have been one of the greatest out of character moments of the Patriots coach, Bill Belichick even referenced the movie ‘My Cousin Vinny’, at the presser saying he was “no Mona Lisa Vito,” in terms of ball knowledge compared to Marisa Tomei’s character’s mechanical car knowledge (VIDEO).

ESPN:

Bill Belichick stated that the New England Patriots “followed every rule” in preparing their footballs for last Sunday’s AFC Championship Game, offering several potential reasons behind the “Deflategate” controversy.

Belichick addressed the issue in a lengthy statement Saturday, one day after the NFL announced that it has not drawn any conclusions yet on how the Patriots used under-inflated footballs during the first half of the conference title game against the Indianapolis Colts.

After detailing the organization’s preparation process and hinting that weather conditions may have affected the air pressure in the footballs, the longtime Patriots coach emotionally defended his team, saying “we did everything as right as we can do it.”

“At no time was there any intent whatsoever to try to compromise the integrity of the game or to gain an advantage,” Belichick said.

Let’s get a couple of things straight here, if this has been done by any of the other 31 NFL teams, “deflategate” would not be a story. Sorry, but it is true. People either love or hate the Patriots because of their dominance, their consistent winning, of course “Spygate,” and the fact that they have destroyed the myth that the NFL’s golden child, Peyton Manning, is not only the greatest QB of all time, he is not even the best QB of his era.

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin Melts Down on Media After Green Bay Collapse in NFC Championship Game

KEEP IT CLASSY SEAHAWKS, KEEP IT UP AND PEOPLE WILL WANT TO ROOT AGAINST YOU.

Following the Seattle Seahawks miraculous victory on Sunday in the NFC Championship game over the Green Bay Packers in overtime 28-22, Seahawk wide receiver Doug Baldwin went on a post-game rant against a doubting media. Really dude, the chip on your shoulder is the size of the George Hallas trophy. During his expletive filled tirade Baldin spouted, “At 16-0 at the half, how many of you counted us out? How many of y’all doubted us?” Note to Doug Baldwin, pretty much everyone did, including your fans. When you stink up the field, can’t catch the ball, can’t throw the ball and your QB has a rating of 0.0, I think anyone in the free world had a right to doubt you. Baldwin further went on to lose his mind and said, “When we were down 16-0 at the half, guess what we said? You don’t win the game in the first half. You win the game in the second half.” Really Doug, is that what you said? I hate to burst your attitude bubble but with 3:50 minutes left in the game, you were down 19-7 and dead in the water. You know who actually thought you were also going to lose, your fabled 12th man.  That is correct, so I guess Baldwin needs to lambaste the Seahawk 12th man fans as well as they left early, never believing that Seattle would win the game. You know, Seattle did not win the game, the Green Bay Packer gave it away, choked and lost the game.

Doug, you might want to ease up on the attitude, you got lucky. If you pulled such a stunt and played that badly against the Patriots, you would have been down 30-0 in the first half.

Here’s Baldwin’s rant, in FULL:

“Are you ready for this? Are you? How many of you (expletive) doubted us? How many of you doubted us when we were 3-3? Y’all, I want you to write this down. Write this down, OK?

“When we were 3-3, everyone counted us out. Y’all didn’t believe in us. A whole bunch of people thought we weren’t going to make it. At 6-4, ah, that’s OK. ‘They have a winning record, but they aren’t going to make the playoffs.’

“At 16-0 at the half, how many of you counted us out? How many of y’all doubted us? It is indicative of our season. Y’all didn’t want to believe in us. It is OK. We don’t need you to believe. We’re going to believe in ourselves. We ain’t worried about y’all. We are worried about ourselves.

“When we were down 16-0 at the half, guess what we said? ‘You don’t win the game in the first half. You win the game in the second half.’ When we do, we come out and we do what we do. We play Seahawks football. We got the opportunity to do what we love. And, we’ll see y’all at the Super Bowl.”

New England Patriots DT Vince Wilfork Helps Driver Trapped in Roll Over Crash in Foxboro Following AFC Championship Game near Gillette Stadium

HERO OF THE DAY … New England Patriots Defensive tackle Vince Wilfork is an All-Pro on and off the football field …

Following the New England Patriots routing of the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship game, 45-7, eleven year veteran DT Vince Wolfork helped a motorist in distress whose SUV flipped over near Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. According to reports, Wilfork helped them rescue a woman trapped in a 2015 Jeep Wrangler after it rolled over on Route 1 in Foxborough. Vince Wilfork told reporters, “It was something we saw and we knew she needed help, so we helped, my job was to help the person in the car.” Talk about your good Samaritan. The story goes as follows, as police held open the driver’s door, then like Superman, the 33 year old, 325 pound Wilfork reached in and helped lift the operator out of the vehicle with one hand.

The 38 year old woman, Mary Ellen Brooks, was okay with no reported injuries; however, she was driving drunk and was charged with DUI.

New England Patriots Vince Wilfork rescues woman after crash

Massachusetts State Police said Wilfork helped them rescue a woman trapped in a car after it rolled over near Gillette Stadium.

When troopers arrived to investigate reports of a vehicle that had rolled over on Route 1 in Foxborough, “to their surprise … Wilfork was beside the vehicle checking on the operator” of the 2015 Jeep Wrangler, police said.

“It was something we saw and we knew she needed help, so we helped,” Wilfork told reporters Monday. “The good thing is that we got her to safety.”

“The first thing I told her was ‘don’t panic.’  My job was to help the person in the car,” he said.

The driver, Mary Ellen Brooks, 38, of Hanson, was unable to get out of the SUV. As police held open the driver’s door, “Wilfork reached in and helped lift the operator out of the vehicle with one hand,” police said.

NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME: Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks – VIDEO (Update: Packers 22 – Seahawks 28)(Update: Seattle Wins in OT!!!)

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME CHAMPIONSHIP FOOTBALL!!!

NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME: THE GREEN BAY PACKERS VS. THE SEATTLE SEAHAWKS

NFL 2015 Championship Game GB-Seattle

It is Championship Sunday in the NFL, the winner earns the rights to play in the Super Bowl, the loser goes home and spends an entire off season wondering what if. The Packers come into the northwest with a wounded QB Aaron Rodgers and his calf issue against the NFL’s number one defense. The two played each other in week one, the Seahawks destroyed the Packers, 36-16, when Seattle was hardly playing their best football. During the final 6 games of the season, where the Seahawks went 6-0, giving up an average of 6.5 points.

It is hard to believe that an injured Aaron Rodgers is going to go into Seattle, away from the friendly confines of the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field and defeat the defending Super Bowl champions. With the rain, the calf injury to Rodgers, the 12th man and more importantly, the Legion of Boom, I see the Seahawks returning to defend their title. I cannot see Aaron Rodgers extending plays with his legs against this defense without resulting in dire consequences. Many pundits say it will be a close game, I am not so sure about that. This one could snow ball.

NFC Championship Game_GB-Seattle

 FOX SPORTS: NFC Championship preview.

UPDATE I: Seahawks give Packers a gift 3 points on Russell Wilson interception. After Seattle CB Richard Sherman had intercepted Rodgers in the end zone.

NFC Championship Game_GB-Seattle2

UPDATE II: Seahawks give the Packers another gift turn over as they fumbled on the kickoff return. However, Green Bay failed to cash in again in the red zone and only came away with another FG. Seattle keeps this up and they will blow this game. In the beginning of this game, it appears that Seattle’s head is no where in the game.

NFC Championship Game_GB-Seattle3

UPDATE III: Touchdown Packers! Sorry, but if the Seahawks are not going to rush the QB and play like the Dallas Cowboy defense, they will get picked a part and destroyed by QB Aaron Rodgers. Hey Seahawks, ever heard of a blitz?

NFC Championship Game_GB-Seattle4

UPDATE IV: Add another FG to the Packers score. Crosby is not 3 for 3. The Seahawks can thank their lucky stars the score is not 24 to zero that this point. although the way they are playing today, it might just be a matter of time before that is the case. Seattle has yet to even show up to the game. Talk about over-confident.

NFC Championship Game_GB-Seattle5

UPDATE V: Another turnover for the Seahawks, their 3rd of the game. UNREAL, the Seahawks are panicking and it is only the first half. Good grief, Seattle is totally out of sorts.

UPDATE VI: HALF TIME – WHAT A TERRIBLE GAME SO FAR, MIGHT AS WELL CALL IT THE TURNOVER BOWL.

The Seattle Seahawk offense has been offensive. Russell Wilson has actually thrown more interceptions than completions in the first half. His QB rating is 0, zero, nada, nien. What a disaster. Rodgers is hardly burning it up himself, but when your counterpart has a QB rating of 0.0, you look all world.

NFC Championship Game_GB-Seattle6

UPDATE VII: Seattle finally scores on a fake FG, throw for a TD (VIDEO). This may be just the thing that was needed for Seattle to light a fire under them and change the momentum in the game. Then again, maybe not. The Seattle offense has just been atrocious today. The only way the Seahawks are going to pull this game off is on special teams and defense.

NFC Championship Game_GB-Seattle7

UPDATE VIII: Yet another GB field goal give the Packers a 12 point lead. It is hard to imagine that the Seahawks could score 2 TD’s in the 4th quarter after having done butkis for the entire game.

NFC Championship Game_GB-Seattle8

UPDATE IX: It may be a little too late … Seahawks score on a Wilson TD run (VIDEO)

NFC Championship Game_GB-Seattle9

UPDATE X: WOW… UNREAL, THE SEAHAWKS KICK AN ONSIDE KICK AND RECOVER THE BALL, THEY HAVE LIFE.

UPDATE XI: Are you kidding me … SEAHAWKS score a TD as Marshawn Lynch 24 yards for a score and they get the 2 point conversion. However, they have left 1:25 to GB.

NFC Championship Game_GB-Seattle10

UPDATE XII: Packers kick FG with 14 seconds left to tie the game. Wondering why Kam Chancellor did not leap the pile to block the FG attempt.

We are headed to OT. Seattle wins the toss and they will receive the ball to start overtime.

NFC Championship Game_GB-Seattle11

UPDATE XIII: ITS OVER … UNBELIEVABLE, SEAHAWKS WIN IN OT … Jermaine Kearse Pass From Russell Wilson for 35 Yards for the TD!!!

I can’t even imagine how badly the Packers are kicking themselves. The Seahawks had done nothing until about 3.30 minutes left in the 4th quarter. Then, the GB Packers could not stop them.

43 Year Old PGA Player Robert Allenby Kidnapped & Robbed Friday Night from Wine Bar in Waikiki After Missing the Cut at the Sony Open in Hawaii

KIDNAPPED, ROBBED AND BEATEN …

43 year old Australian PGA player Robert Allenby was reported to have been kidnapped and robbed Friday night t in Honolulu, Hawaii. The Australian golfer was kidnapped from a wine bar Friday night in Waikiki , beaten and robbed before being dropped off in a park more than six miles away. Allenby reportedly signed his check at the Amuse Wine Bar at 10:48 p.m. local time, and surveillance footage showed him leaving the parking lot minutes later with a group of five or six people.

Allenby, 43, said he was at a wine bar in Waikiki when he was abducted at around 11 p.m. local time, placed in a car, driven 6½ miles away and robbed.

“I didn’t think I was going to survive this one,” Allenby told the Australian Associated Press.

“I was separated from my friend (Anthony Puntoriero) in the bar after we had paid the tab at 10:48 p.m., and he went to the bathroom and next thing you know I’m being dumped in a park miles away.

“I only know this part because a homeless woman found me and told me she saw a few guys pull up and throw me out of the car. That is where I got the scrapes above my eye from the sidewalk.”

Caddie: Allenby kidnapped from bar, beaten, robbed.

According to the AAP, Allenby believes he may have been drugged by the suspects at the bar.

“I didn’t think I was going to survive this one,” Allenby told the AAP. “I was separated from my friend in the bar after we paid the tab at 10:48 p.m. and he went to the bathroom, and next thing you know I’m being dumped in a park miles away.”

Allenby sustained significant facial injuries and was robbed of his wallet, cellphone, cash and credit cards, according to Middlemo.

Lt. Kelvin Cusick tells The Associated Press that Anthony was arrested at 5:46 p.m. on Friday. He said Saturday that Anthony faces a misdemeanor solicitation charge that’s punishable by up to 180 days in jail.

Cusick says the 47-year-old Anthony was released Friday evening. No further details were available.

According to the NCAA website, Anthony was scheduled to announce the Michigan State-Maryland men’s basketball game Saturday in nearby College Park, Maryland.

UPDATE I: Greg Anthony suspended indefinitely by CBS.

CBS announced Saturday morning that Anthony has been suspended indefinitely  following his arrest on solicitation charges.

A CBS spokeswoman says “Greg Anthony will not be working again for CBS this season.”

Turner Sports also suspended the TV commentator and says it “will have no further comment.”

UPDATE II: Greg Anthony issued an apology on Saturday to his wife, family and colleagues

How could some one just piss away their entire career like this? He has ruined his entire life over sex with a prostitute. UNREAL. Most likely this is the cockroach principle, for ever one you see, there are hundreds you do not.

“With this lapse of judgment, I embarrassed many, including myself,” he said. “I will work to regain the trust that I have lost, and the first step is saying that I am sorry.”

NCAA Announces They Will Restore Previously Vacated 112 Penn State Football Wins Making Joe Paterno Again the Winningest Coach in Major College Football History

MOVE OVER BOBBY BOWDEN, JOE PA IS BACK TO BEING THE WINNINGEST FOOTBALL COACH IN MAJOR COLLEGE FOOTBALL HISTORY …

Joe Paterno, the late head coach of the Penn St. Nittany Lions, is back to being the winningest coach in major college football history. The NCAA announced on Friday that they would restore 112 wins by the school’s football team that were wiped out in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation sex scandal. The deal still must be approved by the NCAA board and the Penn State board, but that is probably pretty much of a done deal. This  would return Joe Paterno’s record to 409-136-3. Wow, this is big. The NCAA just blinked. They are basically admitting they overstepped their authority in the sanctions following the Sandusky scandal.  By restoring the wins, Joe Paterno will move back to the top of college football’s all-time Division I, major college wins:

  1. Joe Paterno (409)
  2. Bobby Bowden (377)
  3. Paul “Bear” Bryant (323)
  4. Glenn Scobey Warner (319)

I wonder how long it will be before PSU brings back Joe Pa’s the statue?

Joe Paterno

The NCAA on Friday announced a proposed agreement that would restore 112 wins by the school’s football team that were wiped out during the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal and would put the late Joe Paterno back as the winningest coach in major college football history.

College sports’ governing body announced the proposed deal weeks before a scheduled trial in state court on the legality of the 2012 consent decree it would replace.

The new deal would direct a $60 million fine to address child abuse be spent within Pennsylvania and would resolve the lawsuit.

The deal still must be approved by the NCAA board and the Penn State board. Penn State trustees’ chairman Keith Masser told The Associated Press that board members were having a private discussion early Friday afternoon about the lawsuit.

The announcement follows the NCAA’s decision last year to reinstate the school’s full complement of football scholarships and let Penn State participate in post-season play, and comes just days after a federal judge declined to rule on the consent decree’s constitutionality. The proposed settlement does not discuss the validity of the original consent decree.

Watch live: Corman announcement on lawsuit over Penn State sanctions.

Today is a great victory for everyone who has fought for the truth in the Sandusky tragedy. The repeal of the consent decree and the return of the wins to the University and Joe Paterno confirm that the NCAA and the Board of Trustees acted prematurely and irresponsibly in the unprecedented sanctions the NCAA imposed on the University, the players, coaches and the community.

This case should always have been about the pursuit of the truth, not the unjust vilification of the culture of a great institution and the scapegoating of coaches, players and administrators who were never given a chance to defend themselves.

For nearly three years, everyone associated with Penn State has had to bear the mark of shame placed upon the institution by the NCAA. It was a grievously wrong action, precipitated by panic, rather than a thoughtful and careful examination of the facts.

Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman is holding a 1 p.m. news conference to make a major announcement in the ongoing litigation involving the NCAA and Penn State University concerning the validity of the 2012 Consent Decree that resulted in sanctions against Penn State.

Corman’s lawsuit has turned into a case testing the validity of the penalties contained in the consent decree that resulted in a $60 million fine, a bowl ban, scholarship reduction and the vacation of 112 victories earned by the football team between 1998 and 2011.

The pivot points for any new settlement of this case, which is currently scheduled for trial in Commonwealth Court next month, would be full restoration of the wins, final disposition of the fine proceeds, and some closure on the divisive issue of whether the NCAA properly intervened in the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

Penn State

UPDATE I: Statement from The Paterno family:

Today is a great victory for everyone who has fought for the truth in the Sandusky tragedy. The repeal of the consent decree and the return of the wins to the University and Joe Paterno confirm that the NCAA and the Board of Trustees acted prematurely and irresponsibly in the unprecedented sanctions the NCAA imposed on the University, the players, coaches and the community.

This case should always have been about the pursuit of the truth, not the unjust vilification of the culture of a great institution and the scapegoating of coaches, players and administrators who were never given a chance to defend themselves.

For nearly three years, everyone associated with Penn State has had to bear the mark of shame placed upon the institution by the NCAA. It was a grievously wrong action, precipitated by panic, rather than a thoughtful and careful examination of the facts.

Fortunately, through the tenacious efforts of Senator Jake Corman and Treasurer Rob McCord, a large measure of the wrong has been righted.  This is a major victory in our continued pursuit of justice for Penn State. The victims deserve the truth as do those who have been smeared by the deeply flawed Freeh report, which served as the basis of the actions by the Board Trustees and Penn State.

Through our pending litigation, we intend to continue the job of uncovering the full truth in this case.

UPDATE II: Here’s the release from the NCAA:

NCAA reaches proposed settlement in Corman lawsuit
Agreement allows fine money to be distributed

January 16, 2015 12:58pm

Programs serving child sexual abuse survivors will now receive millions of dollars as part of the NCAA’s proposed settlement with Pennsylvania state officials. This lawsuit stemmed from the NCAA’s sanctions against Penn State University for its role in allowing serial child sexual abuse to occur on its campus.

The proposed settlement agreement with the NCAA, university and state officials, among other things, restores Penn State’s vacated wins from 1998 through 2011.

Subject to board approval from Penn State and the NCAA, the new agreement between the NCAA and Penn State, replacing the 2012 consent decree between the parties, provides the following:

Penn State agrees to commit a total of $60 million to activities and programs for the prevention of child sexual abuse and the treatment of victims of child sexual abuse.
Penn State acknowledges the NCAA’s legitimate and good faith interest and concern regarding the Jerry Sandusky matter.

Penn State and the NCAA will enter into a new Athletics Integrity Agreement that (with concurrence of the Big Ten) includes best practices with which the university is committed to comply and that provides for the university to continue to retain the services of Sen. George Mitchell and his firm to support the university’s activities under the Athletics Integrity Agreement and in the areas of compliance, ethics and integrity.
In July 2012, the NCAA Division I Board of Directors and Executive Committee issued unprecedented sanctions for Penn State’s role in enabling child sexual abuse to occur on campus. In addition to the $60 million fine and vacation of wins, these penalties included a four-year postseason ban, scholarship reductions, five-year probation and a waiver of transfer rules. The NCAA Executive Committee restored postseason access and the full complement of scholarships in 2014, based on the recommendation from Athletics Integrity Monitor Sen. George Mitchell in response to the university’s progress.

“I am pleased to learn that financial resources to help child sexual abuse survivors will soon become available,” said Sen. George J. Mitchell. “I remain impressed with Penn State’s progress to date and look forward to its many reforms and improvements continuing to take root.”

“Continuing this litigation would further delay the distribution of funds to child sexual abuse survivors for years, undermining the very intent of the fine,” said Harris Pastides, University of South Carolina president and member of the NCAA Board of Governors. “While others will focus on the return of wins, our top priority is on protecting, educating and nurturing young people.”

The lawsuit originally asked the judge to restrict the distribution of the $60 million fine to child sexual abuse prevention organizations in Pennsylvania rather than national organizations. The NCAA repeatedly attempted to resolve the dispute regarding the fine, even agreeing to move the funds into a state endowment rather than distribute them nationally as originally intended. The judge denied this motion and expanded the lawsuit to include the NCAA’s authority to act in this matter, which the plaintiffs did not previously question. Penn State initiated the latest settlement discussions in mid-December.

“Today’s agreement with Penn State reaffirms our authority to act,” said Kirk Schulz, Kansas State University president and chair of the NCAA Board of Governors. “The NCAA has a legitimate role when a member’s actions threaten the integrity of college sports. We acted in good faith in addressing the failures and subsequent improvements on Penn State’s campus. We must acknowledge the continued progress of the university while also maintaining our commitment to supporting the survivors of child sexual abuse.”

The NCAA will aggressively defend the Paterno estate’s challenge to the validity of the now-replaced consent decree.

Indianapolis Colts LB Josh McNary Charged with Rape, Criminal Confinement with Bodily Injury and Battery (Update: Mc Nary Denied Allegations)

Another black eye for the NFL …

Indianapolis Colts linebacker Josh McNary has been charged with rape,  criminal confinement with bodily injury and battery resulting in bodily injury stemming from an incident that occurred in the early morning hours of December 1, 2014. According to Fox 59, the victim told Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) sex crimes detectives that she met an unknown man at a downtown bar and went to his apartment when a fight broke out before McNary allegedly raped her. Talk about bad PR for the NFL. Ahead of the AFC Championship game between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts, the Colts brass, players and coaches have to deal with this alleged incident by one of their own. Some call it a distraction, we call it rape.

Indianapolis prosecutors have filed rape, criminal confinement with bodily injury and battery resulting in bodily injury charges against Indianapolis Colts linebacker Josh McNary.

Two Indianapolis police officers said a 29-year-old woman accused an unknown man of attacking her in the early morning hours of Dec. 1. That man later determined to be McNary.

According to the report, police determined the man was McNary after investigating a cellphone the woman claimed she took from the man’s apartment.

UPDATE I: Indianapolis Colts linebacker accused in rape case due in court Thursday.

Court documents reveal that she said “I didn’t have the strength to push him off.” She also described “being in and out of consciousness.”

She took his cell phone when leaving his apartment.

A hospital examination revealed that the woman suffered injuries, including dried blood behind her ear. She told police she scratched her attacker. The victim told police that when she scratched McNary, he said, “Look what you did to me.”

Police used the cell phone to make the connection to McNary. When police arrived at his apartment, McNary told them, “I know why you are here.”

He said he preserved the bedding from the encounter and presented some of the woman’s clothing to police. McNary had also taken photos of the bedding, showing blood stains and other soiled areas.

UPDATE II: Colts linebacker Josh McNary ‘unhesitatingly’ denies rape allegations.

Indianapolis Colts linebacker Joshua McNary denies the allegations that he raped a woman after a night of drinking at a Downtown bar.

On Thursday morning, McNary’s attorney, Edward F. Schrager, released the following statement on behalf of his client:

“Joshua McNary unhesitatingly denies all accusations made against him. Following the public release of these allegations, Joshua immediately reported to law enforcement officials in a respectful and peaceful manner.

“The charges and affidavit publicly disseminated on Wednesday afternoon are not evidence of wrongdoing, but simply one side’s story.”

UPDATE III: Indy Colts Ask NFL Commissioner to put McNary on Exemption List.

The Indianapolis Colts have requested that commissioner NFL Roger Goodell immediately place linebacker Josh McNary on the League’s Commissioner Exemption list.

If the request is granted, McNary — who was charged on Wednesday with rape — would be ineligible to practice or attend games but would receive his playoff share of $44,000 for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game.

The NFL investigation is likely to follow, after which McNary could be suspended for a minimum of six games.

“That designation will permit the investigation provided by the League’s Personal Conduct Policy to run its course and will afford Josh the opportunity to focus on his defense against the charges,” the team said in a statement.
