Lance Armstrong Upset Over ‘Outside’ Digitally Altered Magazine Cover (PHOTO)

Lance Armstrong isn’t too happy with an Outside Magazine cover that digitally altered his T-shirt to bear a profane slogan that reads “38. BFD.” The number refers to Armstrong’s age and the letters are an acronym for “big [expletive] deal”.

As the cover explains in small text, the garment is “not Armstrong’s real T-shirt,” and the cyclist is not very pleased. On Twitter, he wrote that the text was Photo shopped into the image and called the stunt “lame bullshit.” He also derided the altered photo as “weak.”

Armstrong has been on the cover of Outside Magazine eight times. After this, it may be his last.

Ben Roethlisberger Suspended 4-6 Games for Violating NFL Personal Conduct Policy

April 21, 2010 – FOXNews and ESPN report that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be suspended for four to six games on Wednesday for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.

Ben Roethlisberger violates NFL personal contact policy and is banned 4-6 games

On Monday, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said the Steeler’s quarterback violated the NFL’s personal-conduct policy with his “pattern of behavior” and “bad judgments.”

Roethlisberger was accused of sexually assaulting a 20-year-old college student in a Georgia nightclub last month, although he will not face criminal charges. Roethlisberger faced disciplinary action by the NFL following the release of documents outlining tawdry behavior by the two-time Super Bowl winner.

Roethlisberger also is being sued by a different woman who says he raped her in 2008 at a Lake Tahoe hotel-casino. Roethlisberger denies the accusation and was not charged. The NFL is not considering that case while weighing its punishment.

Merlin Olsen, Pro Football Hall of Famer, Dies of Cancer at 69

Merlin Olsen dies of cancer at age 69

Merlin Olsen, NFL Hall of Famer tackle, died early Thursday at a hospital in Duarte, Calif. He was 69.

Olsen’s brother Orrin, announced his death and said he had been treated for mesothelioma, a deadly form of lung cancer. Olsen was also a longtime color commentator for NBC’s pro football and Rose Bowl telecasts, working along side Dick Enberg.

Olsen also acted on television in NBC’s “Little House on the Prairie” and in his own series, “Father Murphy.”

NFL star, Deacon Jones, told The Los Angeles Times in 1985:

“Merlin had superhuman strength. If I was beating my man inside, he’d hold him up and free me to make the tackle. If he had to make an adjustment to sacrifice his life and limb, he would make it. A lot of the plays I made were because he or the others would make the sacrifice.”

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell released a statement after the passing of Olsen on Thursday.

Goodell said:

“Merlin was a larger-than-life person, literally and figuratively, and leaves an enormously positive legacy.”

Our thoughts and condolences go out to Merlin’s family.
