Philadelphia Eagles open to Zach Ertz trade?

  Philadelphia Eagles open to Zach Ertz trade? Even if Ertz has declined slightly, he would still generate plenty of interest before the NFL trade deadline. Teams such as the Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots, Arizona Cardinals and Green Bay Packers could all benefit from adding Ertz to their offense.The Eagles might have to settle for a mid-round pick in return, but it’s a better outcome than losing Ertz next offseason for nothing. It might also give him a chance to compete for a Super Bowl, which probably won’t happen this year in Philadelphia.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Arizona Coyotes top 2020 draft pick Mitchell Miller admitted in an Ohio juvenile court to bullying a Isaiah Meyer-Crothers, the victim in this case, told the Republic that he was “stunned and "Mitchell sent a letter to every NHL team acknowledging what happened and apologizing for his behavior.

In a letter to Wray, which was obtained by Fox News Sunday, Johnson says that a whistleblower contacted the committee on September 24. 'Now you have the proof, perhaps like never was had before on a major politician. Laptop plus. This is the second biggest political scandal in our history!'

A day after The Arizona Republic released a sickening report that Coyotes 2020 fourth-round draft pick Mitchell Miller admitted to bullying a Black classmate with developmental disabilities four years ago, The Athletic's Aaron Portzline obtained police records and letters written by Miller and the victim's mother.

"Hello — I’m the mother of the boy that Mitchell Miller bullied," began the letter from Joni Meyer-Crothers to the Coyotes organization days after the draft. "I read the statements made by the GM (Bill Armstrong) etc. and find them demeaning to our son. Are you aware Mitchell NEVER apologized to our son? Are you aware two years ago he still taunted him? Are you aware this went on for years? Do you understand the mental damage Mitchell did to our son?"

Coyotes' top draft pick, Mitchell Miller, was convicted of bullying Black, mentally disabled teen four years ago

  Coyotes' top draft pick, Mitchell Miller, was convicted of bullying Black, mentally disabled teen four years ago The top draft pick for the Arizona Coyotes, whose CEO is in a NHL group to stop racism, was convicted of bullying a Black disabled kid four years ago.Isaiah Meyer-Crothers, the Black student, told The Arizona Republic that he was stunned and saddened when he learned the Coyotes earlier this month had selected Mitchell Miller, whom he grew up with in Sylvania, Ohio.

But one thing that never changes is his genius, and his sense of humor. This means, that every four years or so, when the actors playing the Doctor decide to move on to different projects and leave the show, the producers can find a new actor to take on the iconic role.

Team USA penned a letter to Larry Nassar' s victims . 'The purpose is to tell all of Nassar' s victims and 'The Olympic family is among those that failed you': Team USA pens an open letter apologizing to 'You never healed me. You took advantage of our passions and our dreams,' said Raisman.

According to both reports, the abuse — which included racial slurs — started when Miller, Isaiah Meyer-Crothers and a third student were in second grade in Sylvania, Ohio, and continued into middle school, culminating in 2016 when the two boys got Meyer-Crothers to lick a push-pop that had been rubbed inside a urinal.

"I respect you stating he sent all the NHL teams an apology, but wouldn’t it make sense if he was truly remorseful to send a letter to the kid that he brutally bullied both mentally and physically?" the letter by Meyer-Crothers' mother continued. "Is it a surprise he sent all the NHL teams a letter because this was for his betterment?"

Opinion: Coyotes created another problem for themselves by drafting player who admitted to bullying Black classmate

  Opinion: Coyotes created another problem for themselves by drafting player who admitted to bullying Black classmate The Arizona Coyotes seem to enjoy challenges because they create them for themselves all the time; drafting Mitchell Miller is the the latest example.Despite failing at the portion of their jobs that involve hockey, the Coyotes have decided to diversify their services and provide counseling and other resources to those affected by bullying and racism.

To be the busy wife of a busy man, to be the mother of many children(the subj is expressed by the inf which represent 1 person or thing) was, to his thinking, the highest lot of woman, (Trollope) 11. Her family were (or was, depending on the contest) of a delicate constitution.

“He never talked about it; I just knew he was injured in the war,” said Mr. Griesser, who lives in Stone Harbor, N.J. “We went to see the movie ‘The Longest Day’ together, but that was pretty much the extent of our conversation about the war. I think he just wanted to put it behind him.”

The Athletic obtained the letter Miller sent to all 31 NHL teams where he stated he "is a different person" and was "thankful to have learned a very painful and valuable lesson." Portzline stated that a few franchises were not convinced he was truly remorseful — something William Hutcheson, the juvenile magistrate who heard Miller's case, told Miller in court and which Joni Meyer-Crothers noted in her letter.

"I guess as an organization and NHL team I would expect so much more and hold them to a higher standard, especially with all the (Black Lives Matter) movement," Joni Meyer-Crothers' letter continued. "As much as we pray Mitchell will eventually see the damage he did to our son, we have seen no remorse. The other gentleman had a sincere apology to our son and our son forgave him. The magistrate said it best: 'Mitchell, I don’t think you are remorseful for what you did more than you are upset for the negative attention you are getting.'

Patriots unlikely to trade reigning DPOY Stephon Gilmore?

  Patriots unlikely to trade reigning DPOY Stephon Gilmore? In addition to the high-level draft picks that a Gilmore trade would entail, the acquiring team must also be prepared to pony up a massive extension soon. Gilmore’s contract runs through the 2021 campaign, and even though he is not performing at the same level this year as he was in 2019, he will surely demand a top-of-the-market contract this offseason.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Never before had the friar had such power and never had his voice rung out with such a clap of doom. With all his brightness and cleverness and general good qualities, Mr. Franklin' s chance of topping Mr. Godfrey in our young lady' s estimation was, in my opinion, a very poor chance indeed.

Every Russian child knows that you only give an uneven number of flowers; otherwise, the person who is receiving could fall victim to bad luck, or even death. Even now, Russians have a proverb: “Trouble never comes alone.” Instead, uneven numbers symbolized life and gave protection from evil

"Again, the bully incident that continued over years has damaged our son mentally significantly and your organization is more concerned about Mitchell and your hockey success. In my opinion, that is being part of the problem. There is a victim out there that was and still at the hands of your 111th pick."

While the Coyotes organization has not responded to her letter directly and it should be noted that Armstrong was not directly involved in Miller's selection out the University of North Dakota because of an agreement with his former team, the Blues, the Coyotes did issue a statement when the Republic's story came out  Monday.

(North Dakota released a statement to the Grand Forks Herald on Monday from head coach Brad Berry, who stated his program wants to "hone not only his hockey abilities but most importantly, assist him in his continuing growth as a human being which will last him the remainder of his life.")

"Given our priorities on diversity and inclusion, we believe that we are in the best position to guide Mitchell into becoming a leader for this cause and preventing bullying and racism now and in the future," the Coyotes' statement read.

"As an organization, we have made our expectations very clear to him. We are willing to work with Mitchell and put in the time, effort, and energy and provide him with the necessary resources and platform to confront bullying and racism.

"This isn’t a story about excuses or justifications. It’s a story about reflection, growth, and community impact. A true leader finds ways for every person to contribute to the solution. We all need to be a part of the solution."

Those actions remain to be seen.
