A Red Sox source denied an article in the Chicago Tribune which said the Red Sox inserted a clause in Carl Crawford's contract that would prevent him from being traded to the Yankees if they dealt him to another team.The denial was reported by WEEI.com's Alex Speier.The Red Sox reportedly have the right to select 28 clubs to whom he can be traded to without consent, but Crawford does have the right to eliminate two of those team.The history does prove however that when the Red Sox have this option they tend to choose the Yankees. The Red Sox rarely ever discuss deals with the Yankees and the last deal between the two teams was in 1997 when the Sox sent Mike Stanely to the Yankees for Tony Armas Jr. and Jim Mecir.
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."
Former NFL player Dan Koppen says the team locker room after a win is a sacred place and that Steelers WR Antonio Brown should know not to be posting on Facebook.
