Talib's apparent eye-gouge
The Indianapolis Colts ran out 27-24 winners over the Denver Broncos in Indiana yesterday, but the game’s major talking point was the apparent eye-gouge delivered by Aqib Talib.
The Broncos cornerback was caught on camera giving opponent Dwayne Allen a poke that Ric Flair would have been proud of, conceding a 15-yard penalty for the offense.
He supposedly said after the match that the gouge wasn’t intentional and that he was instead aiming to push Allen’s head.
From where we’re standing his fingers accurately go through the opening in the helmet and straight into Allen’s eye, but who are we to call him a liar?
The 22-year-old safety got himself into a shouting match with Julius Peppers before shoving defensive tackle B.J. Raji when he tried to get in between the pair. Clinton-Dix struggled to inject half as much vigour into his performance during the loss.
Refs cause controversy in Rockets v Clippers
Meanwhile in the NBA, refs may have caused controversy during the Saturday game between the Rockets and the Clippers.
The league said after the match, which Houston won, that Dwight Howard should have been whistled for goaltending at the end of the fixture. Perhaps, then, the game could have gone into overtime.
Naturally, fans weren't happy:
Bryant to step down?
Lastly, Kobe Bryant has admitted that this might be his last year in the NBA, or so says Los Angeles Lakers coach Byron Scott.
The legendary shooting guard is in his 20th season with the league and has broken numerous records on his way to superstardom.
However, Scott revealed Bryant had told him he wants to play as many games as possible this year, as there might not be another one.
