Slap Happy

A woman who works at Cowboys stadium has accused former San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys great, Charles Haley of slapping her on her buttocks during the Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day game against the Miami Dolphins.

A police report said the woman found the contact inappropriate and was offended, and that a third party corroborated her accusation. Police spokeswoman Tiara Richard said Friday that Haley denies the claim, and he faces a choice of either paying a fine or contesting the matter in court.

Best thing for Haley to do is to apologize and pay the fine and ride off into the sunset and wait for the call to the Hall.

Smith And Turner To Get The Ax

According to a report in the San Diego Union-Tribune, San Diego Chargers Team President Dean Spanos has decided to fire General Manager AJ Smith and Head Coach Norv Turner at the end of this season. Turner and Smith have been tied together for the numerous regular season flops and playoff failures. Spanos feels he "has no choice" but to go in another direction. Turner is definitely gone after the season, but Spanos is reported to be wrestling with the decision to fire Smith, so it's possible that he might be spared.

“The decisions are not made,” said one team source, “but everything is lined up.”
