ELIN OPENS UP TO PEOPLE MAGAZINE
Tiger's ex-wife has given what she calls her first and last interview regarding the breakup of their marriage. In the latest edition of People Magazine, Elin Nordegren says she has "been through hell" since November, but denied hitting Tiger the night of his crash. "There was never any violence inside or outside our home," she said. "The speculation that I would have used a golf club to hit him is just truly ridiculous." She also did not reveal any details of the settlement, saying only, "money can't buy happiness or put my family back together." Meanwhile, Tiger is on the course in New Jersey, participating in a pro-am ahead of The Barclays, which tees off tomorrow.
More of what's happening At This Hour, including the latest on the negotiations between Darrelle Revis and the Jets, and today's step that could bring you closer to an 18-game NFL schedule, after the jump.
Whether or not the Jets are close to a new deal with Darrelle Revis depends on who you ask. Multiple reports say that the two sides are close on a new deal that could be announced as soon as today. But it could also depend on what those reports mean by close. ESPNNewYork.com reports that the two sides are still $40 million dollars apart on a 10-year deal. And maybe that's close, considering that Revis wants the Jets to pay him $162 million, and the Jets want to pay him $122 million. But maybe that $40 million is what's keeping Revis from buying his own island, at least before it sinks off the coast of Dubai.
NFL OWNERS MEET
A number of issues are on the plate today in Atlanta, including a proposed 18-game season supported by commissioner Roger Goodell. He's expected to speak when the meeting concludes, and has stated repeatedly that a four-game preseason is too long and that fans don't like paying for them. Opponents of expanding the schedule cite player injuries as a matter of major concern. And all of these discussions are taking place in the midst of negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement. Sal Paolantino is covering the meeting throughout the day for SportsCenter.
