More violence at Dodger Stadium

A little more than a year after San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow was left with brain damage after being beaten, violence erupted once again at Dodger Stadium.

A minor fender bender turned into a man being beaten by four men. A man in his 20s was involved in an accident with another driver and three other men pinned him down and beat him in the Dodger Stadium parking lot.

The four men have been arrested for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon.

The other driver kicked and hit the victim in the head and face while he was on the ground, police Sgt. David Armas said.

"It was just a minor fender bender that just got totally out of hand," he said.

The victims injuries were not life threatening and was treated for scrapes and cuts. Luckily he escaped the incident relatively unharmed .

Tampa Bay Buccaneers sign Dallas Clark

With news of Kellen Winslow being on the outs in Tampa Bay (traded or released) the Buccaneers signed former Indianapolis Colts standout Dallas Clark.

Adam Caplan of Sirius XM NFL Radio reports that Clark has signed and that the contract has been officially submitted to the league office.

On paper it looks like a decent signing for the Bucs but Clark has been struggling with injuries the past two seasons. His production has declined and Clark may not produce like Winslow has for Tampa Bay.

If Clark's body can hold up this could be a steal of a signing. If not the Bucs will wish they would've kept Winslow.

Lions' Ford ranks as one of the worst owners in the NFL

Despite a playoff appearance last season and a team that is by all accounts getting better, Lions owner William Clay Ford is still seen in the eyes of many as one of the worst owners in the NFL.

Last November, Forbes Magazine ranked Ford as the worst owner in the NFL mostly due to financial reasons however Ford is 27th on the list of Big Lead Sports’ Jason Lisk.

Lisk chose not to rank Shahid Khan (Jaguars) and Mark Davis (Raiders) since their time as an NFL owner has been brief as of yet. But, Ford comes in at No. 27 ahead of ahead of are Kansas City’s Clark Hunt, Cincinnati’s Mike Brown and Cleveland’s Randy Lerner.

Here is what Lisk has to say.

“Last year was great for the Lions. The previous 49 with the senior Ford in official ownership position, not so much with very few exceptions, and it’s hard to get the taste of the Matt Millen era out. The Lions were one of the feared franchises of the Fifties and early Sixties, but it’s been a while. The good news is that the team looks up as his role diminishes with age.”

Robert Kraft of the New England Patriots, Dan and Art Rooney II of the Pittsburgh Steelers and John Mara and Steve Tisch of the New York Giants round out the top three according to Lisk.
