Check out why David Beckham was suspended

From Comcast SportsNet
CARSON, Calif. (AP) -- David Beckham has been suspended for one game by Major League Soccer's disciplinary committee for kicking a ball at an opponent late in the Los Angeles Galaxy's loss at San Jose. MLS announced the suspension Thursday for Beckham, the Galaxy's superstar midfielder. Beckham kicked a ball at San Jose's Sam Cronin during stoppage time in Los Angeles' 4-3 loss to the Earthquakes on June 30. Cronin was down in the penalty box at the time, and Beckham's kick set off a prolonged argument between the teams. Beckham was issued a yellow card for the kick during the game. He missed the Galaxy's home loss to Philadelphia on Wednesday night under suspension for an accumulation of yellow cards. The struggling defending MLS champions' next game is Sunday at Chicago.

Brown apologizes for 'distraction' caused by Facebook Live video

Brown apologizes for 'distraction' caused by Facebook Live video

Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown posted an apology on social media Tuesday night for his Facebook Live video that has caused a stir over the last few days.

"I let my emotions and genuine excitement get the best of me, and I wanted to share that moment with our fans," said Brown in a statement on his Twitter. ""It was wrong of me to do, against team and NFL policy, and I have apologized to Coach Tomlin and my teammates for my actions.

"I'm sorry to them for letting it become a distraction and something that they've had to answer questions about while we're preparing for a big game on Sunday."

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday that he has “absolutely no worries on the video's effect" on Sunday's game against the Patriots, but it was "selfish and inconsiderate" of his star wide receiver.

Brown could still be fined for violating the league's social-media policy. The policy states that players, coaches and football operations personnel are banned from using social media on game days 90 minutes before kickoff, during games, and before "traditional media interviews."
