TEMA: The only positions open were at quarterback

The only positions open were at quarterback hace 1 mes #81815

LAS VEGAS (AP) — It wasn’t exactly the NFL draft http://www.packerscheapstore.com/dexter-williams-jersey-cheap , though it was held in the middle of all the glitz that Las Vegas offers. but even quarterbacks won’t get rich soon because they will paid the same base salary as everyone else in the new Alliance of American Football league.Still, this week’s draft at the Luxor hotel-casino was a start, and an important one in the latest attempt to convince Americans they need more football. Come February — a week after the Super Bowl to be specific — some of the quarterbacks drafted will be on the field as the AAF opens its inaugural season with eight teams playing a 10-game schedule.Yes, it’s pro football in the spring, a concept that hasn’t exactly worked out before. The AAF is going where other leagues have gone to die, armed with deep pockets, low initial expectations and a financial game plan that seems to make sense, at least on paper.League backers also come with a firm belief that the NFL isn’t the only place where football can be played for pay.“The level of play will be somewhere between college and the NFL,” said Mike Singletary, the Hall of Fame linebacker who will coach in the new league. “I’m excited to see guys have a second chance, excited to see guys who really want to play, who have been working out the last two to three years to get this opportunity.”So far, the coaches are better known than the players. Steve Spurrier will be at the helm in Orlando, while Singletary — who most recently coached the San Francisco 49ers — returns to the pro ranks as head of the Memphis Express.That’s not necessarily a bad thing because the idea is that the AAF will be more of a feeder league to the NFL than a competitor of the $20 billion a year league. There’s no reason, league co-founder Charlie Ebersol believes, to compete with the NFL when the leagues will operate at different times and, for the most part, in different places.Besides, he says, there’s plenty of appetite for football year round.“There is a massive amount of people in this country who watch only one sport on television and that league only plays a set period of time,” Ebersol said. “They stop watching sports on TV the day after the Super Bowl and don’t come back until the NFL returns.”Ebersol, whose father, longtime NBC Sports boss Dick Ebersol, was one of the founders of the ill-fated XFL, has lined up venture capitalists, including billionaire Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund, to fund the league’s formative years. He’s also secured a contract with CBS to televise an opening day game and the championship game, with a weekly game on the CBS Sports Network.There are business plans that rely on cost controls among players (all will sign three-year deals with annual salaries of $70 Josh Allen Jersey ,000, $80,000 and $100,000) and fans (Ebersol says a family of four should be able to go attend games for $220, all in) for stability. And rules that include no kickoffs, shorter play clocks and fewer commercial breaks mean games will be played in two-and-a-half hours.Most importantly, perhaps, all teams will be league-owned, meaning there will be no billionaire owners trying to muck things up. And, while players will have set salaries, they can make more based on fan engagement (and fan betting) and are free to leave at any time if the NFL comes calling.“We built our model based on a five to seven year plan,” Ebersol said. “The leagues that failed previously were banking on massive audiences opening night. We’re not looking to put up crazy numbers overnight. We want to build slow and steady and be a long term business over the years.”Though the league is designed to be complimentary to the NFL, the AAF may find itself in competition with another spring league in 2020. That’s when WWE tycoon Vince McMahon plans to spend $100 million to revive the XFL and offer spring football.And if spring football hasn’t been successful for any one league, it stands to reason two competing leagues can’t make it long term.Still, for one year at least, the AAF will have the spring playing field to itself. Fans in Atlanta, Birmingham, Memphis, Orlando, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, San Antonio and San Diego will have five home games to pick from with ticket prices as low as $15 a game.Will it work? The track record says no, but Ebersol says his league has learned from the mistakes of those who failed before.And that may be the most important factor if the AAF is to overcome the odds and succeed.____Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

(AP) — The Chinese masseuse shrinks into her chair as the Florida sheriff’s detective tells her deputies installed hidden cameras in her spa’s ceiling. He knows she and other women had sex with men for money.But you can save yourself, Martin County Detective Mike Fenton and others tell her. We will give you an apartment. We will provide food and education. We will bring your children to the United States.Just tell us you are a human-trafficking victim and testify against your captors.Over four hours, the masseuse would see three investigators, two social workers and a translator. A video-recording of her interview was obtained by The Associated Press through a public records request. The AP is not naming the woman because she might be a victim of a sex crime.The outcome of her interview would help determine whether Martin County could prove the owners of five massage parlors its deputies raided are not just pimps, but human traffickers holding women against their will.The operation was part of a multicounty crackdown that drew international attention when New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft was charged with paying for sex in neighboring Palm Beach County, one of 300 men overall.Martin Sheriff William Snyder strongly believes the women are trafficking victims but needs a masseuse to testify against her bosses to get convictions. That could start a cascade of charges that eat away at the national network of massage parlor-based traffickers Snyder believes exists.“We as a nation should have a collective sense of shame http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/jawaan-taylor-jersey-cheap ,” he said. “In the land of the free, thousands of women have no freedom.”Maybe this woman would be the one to flip.DROPPING THE HAMMERThe masseuse sits in an interrogation room, hidden cameras again peering from the ceiling. She is 36 and slight, with black hair hanging to her waist. She wears a pink top, jeans and sneakers, her glasses too big for her face. Fenton sits to her right. Across a small table is Damian Spotts, a Mandarin-speaking police officer, and a female translator. The woman had been detained hours earlier during a February raid involving Cove Day Spa, a strip-mall parlor.A Chinese national, the masseuse tells Fenton she has a work visa and has applied for political asylum. She worked at an Alabama massage parlor before moving to spas on Florida’s Gulf Coast. She drove to Martin County on the east coast 15 days earlier.Fenton soon drops the hammer: We installed cameras.“We know what goes on in the spa. It is not just massages,” he tells her. “I know this is not the funnest thing to talk about, but we know this is what happens. I don’t think this is the kind of work you want.”He assures her she is not in trouble — yet. But we must know: Are you forced to prostitute yourself?No, she responds, shaking her head.Would someone be angry if you quit? No.Then why do it?She pauses, then responds softly, “I don’t know.”“You know. You are intelligent,” Fenton says. “The reason why you got into this line of work is because somebody told you about it. Is this your dream job?”She says she does it to support relatives in China. Would they be proud? She doesn’t know.“I don’t think you found this all on your own,” Fenton says. He leaves her with Spotts and the translator.LEGAL CHALLENGESThe misdemeanor solicitation cases against the men seemed airtight at first, but many, including Kraft’s, are crumbling.Judges found the search warrants flawed and barred the videos’ use. If those decisions survive appeal, many cases will likely be dismissed. Trafficking charges against some owners might still be possible, but only if a victimized masseuse testifies.“Unless you have an adult victim saying what would rise legally to force, fraud or coercion, you don’t have a case even though there is circumstantial evidence” of trafficking, like women living inside the spas, said Shea Rhodes, a former prosecutor and director of the Villanova Law Institute to Address Commercial Sexual Exploitation.WILL SHE FLIP?After Fenton leaves, the masseuse tells Spotts the sex wasn’t prostitution. It happened after the massage for no extra charge.Deputy Heather Hegeman enters and tells the woman she can stay at a safe house Josh Oliver Jersey , but she wants to return to the spa owner’s condo where she has been living. Hegeman says OK, but the sheriff plans to seize it soon. The woman admits she’s worried the owners will think she ratted.After Hegeman leaves, a victims advocate enters, explaining she is not a cop.“We have a house set up. We have therapists set up. We have medical attention if she needs it,” she tells the translator. “Food, clothing. We have all of that, but she has to tell me she is doing this against her will.”The masseuse pauses but finally says she wants to call a friend.Hegeman returns with the woman’s phone to get her friend’s number — and learns the phone’s passcode, so detectives can search it. She shows everyone photos of her children, ages 9 and 11.“They are so beautiful,” Hegeman says.Hegeman leaves and the masseuse becomes animated. She repeatedly tells Spotts she is not a victim but complains she is being treated like a criminal.“There’s no way I can cooperate with you,” she says. She wants a lawyer.The masseuse, Spotts and the translator sit silently for 30 minutes before Blanca Chang, who works for an anti-trafficking organization, arrives. Chang explains she is a Guatemalan immigrant and tells the Chinese woman that American detectives can’t comprehend what immigrants endure, “where you feel like you are forced to do certain things.”The woman says she doesn’t trust authorities. Chang understands — Guatemalans don’t trust them, either.“I’m not the police. I don’t work for the government,” she said.The masseuse swivels in her chair and cries.Chang tells her the raid “was very bad luck. Good luck, too. Otherwise you would be suffering more. You were rescued.”Spotts, after briefly leaving, asks Chang, “She is still maintaining that she’s not a victim, right?”Not quite, Chang says. She is not admitting it, but she isn’t denying it, either.The masseuse gets her phone back. She won’t be charged.Outside, her Uber awaits.No Florida massage parlor owners have been charged with human trafficking.
