The winner of last months $300,000 Grand National in Far Hi

Mike Mularkey has made eliminating penalties a focus for the Tennessee Titans since the offseason program started. The coach already is seeing an early payoff.Against the Oakland Raiders, Titans linebacker David Bass picked up a fumble and ran 47 yards for a touchdown in a 27-14 win. Best of all for Mularkey? Not a single player or coach crossed the sideline while celebrating the big play.For Mularkey, its all part of building confidence and an identity for a franchise that has won just five games over the past two seasons.Its such a simple thing as even the sideline, where since the very first day of OTAs, we painted a line and we asked the players to stay behind the line and the coaches to stay behind the line because its an emphasis this year, Mularkey said. Its how well disciplined theyve been on the sideline.The NFL has made keeping coaches off the field a point of emphasis; any assistant coach or player coming onto the field will be penalized. Cam Newton was flagged for illegal substitution when he came on the field during a 95-yard return of an interception Aug. 11, wiping out a Carolina TD.Oakland was penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct at the start of the fourth quarter when coaches came onto the field.The Titans discipline definitely was tested when linebacker Sean Spence hit Raiders running back DeAndre Washington, popping the ball out.That one was a little bit of a challenge. I mean they were excited, and I was too, Mularkey said. But if you go back to the first preseason game when ... Cam was on the field and it got nullified because of that penalty. We could easily have been penalized for that, as well, for all the players on the field.DROP THE FOURTH PRESEASON GAME: Former NFL executive Pat Kirwan believes the fourth preseason game is a waste.On his SiriusXM Radio program, Kirwan recently outlined a better way to use the final weeks of the preseason than to play a game in which few, if any, starters see the field.Just eliminate that game, Kirwan said. That meant last week when that (third game) ended, you would now be in a two-week cycle -- more than two weeks for some teams -- to get ready for your opener, which I think would open up the door for more trades.This whole nonsense of this Thursday game, remember, (Wednesday) they will be traveling, so there is a day you are not bringing anybody in. Then you are wasting your time with a game, you come back Friday and youre trying to make your final cuts. If you had made your final cuts last week and could really have spent the two weeks negotiating a trade with a guy or two, I think you could have helped your roster a lot more.Kirwan also believes teams would be better served that way as they prepare for the regular season.If I was running a team, I would love a two-week window to my opener right now, he said, and be able to put myself in a really good position to start prepping the game plan for the opener; start making sure I had my roster right; and giving myself the time to make a trade or two. And work out some of the guys who were cut last week.I think a lot of guys would feel they could settle their club a little quicker.ONE-TIME PERK? Minnesotas brand-new $1.1 billion stadium has plenty of fancy features, with one of the most unique (and pricey) being a bar and lounge area coaches and players walk through to reach the field from the locker room. With purple-clad ticket-holders stretching their hands out for high-fives. The Delta Sky360 Club also has windows into the interview room, where coach Mike Zimmer will hold post-game press conferences.Following a smooth preseason opener, a 23-10 victory over San Diego that officially inaugurated U.S. Bank Stadium, Zimmer uncharacteristically hammed it up for the fans who celebrated his arrival at the podium. He waved with a big smile and jokingly asked for a drink while pantomiming the lifting of a bottle to his lips.After a few more rounds of cheers and claps, though, a still-grinning Zimmer became distracted from the question-and-answer duties.This is going to be rough. Were not going to be able to do this all year, Zimmer said.The interview room has a convenient switch that can tilt the window glass to a frosted look that prevents the crowd from watching.---FINE HIM 50 CENTS: In the draft room, Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson is a stickler about cellphones. He doesnt want to hear them.So when his phone went off during the middle of a news conference this week, Thompson was a little embarrassed.Thats my phone, Thompson said. If we were in the draft room that would cost me 50 cents. Uh, the question. Can you repeat that?Thompson handed the phone to a team official. It went off again a minute later as he was answering a question.Thats not me, Thompson deadpanned. I guess it is me.Its understandable the phone would go off now because of roster cuts.Theres a lot of fishing that goes on at this time of the year, Thompson said. So yeah, theres people touching base and everybody does it. They talk and talk and sometimes something happens; most of the time probably not.---AP Pro Football Writers Barry Wilner, Teresa M.

CAMDEN, S.C. -- Top Striker broke away for a 10 1/2-length victory Saturday in the 47th running of the $150,000 Marion duPont Scott Colonial Cup Steeplechase.The 7-year-old Van Nistelrooy gelding, stabled at a barn across the street from Springdale Race Course, was taken to the lead by jockey Ross Geraghty entering the 17th and final fence of the 2 3/4-mile race. Days of Heaven came in a length and a quarter behind Rawnaq for third in the starting field of 10 jumpers, of which nine finished. The final running time was 5:12.40.It was Top Strikers second win in a feature at his home course. Owned by Camdens Sue Sensor and trained in Camden by Arch Kingsley Jr., Top Striker won the $50,000 Carolina Cup Steeplechase in the spring of 2014.Top Striker also snapped Rawnaqs bid to complete an unbeaten 2016 campaign over fences. The winner of last months $300,000 Grand National in Far Hills, New Jersey, had earned $360,000 from three starts coming into Saturdays feature. The 9-year-old Azamour gelding had already locked up the National Steeplechase Associations Lonesome Glory Champions Award before Saturdays race.The win was also the second consecutive Colonial Cup victory for Geraghty, an Ireland native who won aboard Dawwalan last year.ddddddddddddWhen entries were announced for the Colonial Cup last week, Kingsley did not have a rider listed. Geraghty, the associations 2012 champion jockey, did not have a horse to ride.I was sort of shopping around, Geraghty said. Honestly, I said to Arch that I didnt want to just take part in the race, I wanted to win it. ... I was impressed by (Top Striker). I knew he was a horse that was going to suit no matter what.Sean McDermott took Rawnaq to the early lead and was pressed by Days of Heaven, who had Kieran Norris aboard. That allowed Top Striker to settle into a nice galloping pace behind the two leaders.Hes a bigger, stronger horse now, Sensor said of Top Striker. Hes got so much more confidence and you can place him wherever you want to in a race now and he doesnt try to right you. He will just do his thing.Saturdays Colonial Cup meet ended the associations 2016 season.Rawnaqs owner Irv Naylor had already wrapped up the title of leading owner, and Jack Fisher takes his 10th title as leading trainer in terms of season wins. Rawnaq is the circuits leading earner. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
