49ers Aldon Smith has been suspended without pay for the first nine games.
Roger Goodell and the NFL are on a rampage here and while some fans might be upset, it is the intelligent and sensible fan who understands that this type of action is needed. Smith has been stopped for drunk driving multiple times, he's had both illegal narcotics and firearms found both in his car and on his person and has had the police summoned to his home on more than one occasion due to problems caused by gang member with whom he associates regularly. He had a mandated stint in rehab last year and was allowed to return to the field and he obviously didn't learn a single thing. Keep taking away their likelihood and maybe, just maybe, they'll wise-up and stop being such morons.ANALYST: Howard Bender
The Bulls have fired head coach Tom Thibodeau .
As expected, the Bulls have officially let Thibodeau go. Not that another Derrick Rose injury is his fault, but between the disappointing season and the fact that there is an apparent rift between him and some of his players, the front office thought that it was simply time for him to go. There is no word as to who the favorite to replace him might be. Analysis: Howard Bender
