Coritiba Striker Joel Falls into Giant Hole During Goal Celebration [Video]

soccer player disappears after scoring goal

Coritiba striker Joel scored a goal versus Sao Paulo in Brazil on Wednesday night and decided to celebrate by hurtling a fence directly into a massive hole.

You can see a well-dressed man clearly waving his hands trying to warn Joel against jumping the fence. My only question is, why in the world is there a giant ditch directly next to the pitch? Seems a touch unsafe. Then again, it is in Brazil.

He managed to climb out of the ditch mostly unscathed, if a bit shaken up, and Coritiba ended up winning 3-1. Joel had two goals on the evening.

Jerome Boateng Strike Hands Manchester City Another Champions League Defeat [Video]

Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng scored this fantastic late goal against his former club Manchester City, giving the German club a 1-0 Champions League win.

City have won two of the past three EPL titles. But that success has not translated in Europe. The team has two group stage exits and a round of 16 departure over the same span. Conceding those late points could prove critical in what could be a tough group. Bayern coach Pep Guardiola liked it.


Jonathan Dwyer Was Arrested On Domestic Violence Charges [UPDATE: Broke Wife's Nose, Assaulted 1-Year-Old Son]

The NFL stories keep on coming. Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer has been arrested on domestic violence charges. Per the CBS Evening News he has been charged with “aggravated assault” and “preventing someone from calling 911.” According to 3TV Sports anchor Tyler Baldwin, the incident was “an alleged fight with his wife” that occurred “a while ago.”

Can we officially call these past year in the NFL, with the Aaron Hernandez murder, multiple drug arrest, numerous domestic assaults, and now child abuse, the darkest and worst of its history?

[Update: Police records contain more detail:.

Police records indicate the incident began at about 8 a.m. on July 21 when Dwyer and his wife got into a verbal argument. Police say Dwyer tried to kiss his wife and remove her clothing. The woman told Dwyer to stop several times, police say, and bit his lip when he wouldn't. Investigators say Dwyer then head-butted his wife, fracturing her nose.

Dwyer's wife answered the door and told officers that Dwyer was not there and the argument had been over the phone. In fact, Crump said, Dwyer's wife suffered a broken bone in the incident and investigators now believe that Dwyer was hiding in the bathroom when police responded.

Dwyer's wife did not report the incidents to police until Sept. 11, and police wouldn't say if it was related to last week's Ray Rice controversy. But as we've already seen, the publicizing of domestic violence as an issue does cause more women to report abuse.

Investigators have spent the last few days reviewing medical records, talking to witnesses including neighbors, and yesterday arrested Dwyer at the Cardinals' training facility. He spent the night in jail before being released early this morning on $25,000 bond.

Dwyer is charged with one count of aggravated assault causing a fracture, one count of aggravated assault involving a minor, one count of assault, two counts of criminal damage, and one count of preventing the use of a phone in an emergency.]



Jameis Winston Suspended For 1st Half of Clemson Game for Yelling “F–k Her Right in The P—y,”

Jameis Winston, last years Heisman Trophy winner, is in the news again, and once again its not a good story. The Seminole quarterback jumped on a table on the Florida State campus and yelled “Fuck Her Right in the Pussy,” in reference to the internet meme. Florida State, according to head coach Jimbo Fisher, is considering punishing their Heisman-winning quarterback. Winston, within the last calendar year, was implicated but not charged in a sexual assault case and arrested for stealing crab legs.

This was dumb, for anyone. It was poor judgement especially for Winston, given his profile and personal history.

What the potential punishment will be is an interesting decision. Will he be suspended for all or part of the game? Florida State faces one of its only “tests” of the season against Clemson this weekend. Florida State folks are high on backup quarterback Sean Maguire. But perhaps not high enough to place the season on his throwing shoulder. It’s also yet another issue that will end up on his scouting reports with NFL teams. Given the present public relations climate in the league, we may see his stock tumble rapidly.

UPDATE: Winston suspended for the 1st half of Clemson game.
