WASHINGTON -- The NAACP wants a meeting with NBA commissioner Adam Silver to discuss Clippers owner Donald Sterling and the racist comments he allegedly made in a recorded conversation. Balenciaga Triple S White Sale . The announcement was made Tuesday morning by Roslyn M. Brock, the chair of the NAACP National Board of Directors. She says the NAACP wants to talk to Silver about what it calls, quote, "the influence and impact of racism in the National Basketball Association." This comes as the organizations Los Angeles chapter withdrew its decision to give Sterling a lifetime achievement award, and returned money he donated. Brock says the situation reminds us "racism and bigotry are still alive and well in all corners of society." The NBA is scheduled to announce later Tuesday the result of its investigation into Sterlings alleged remarks. Balenciaga Speed Trainer Sale .

Last year, Islanders forward Colin Mcdonald released a "Do It For Colin" campaign to promote his teammate and friend John Tavares for the EA sports honour:The most popular sports voting video ever has to go to Chris Bosh who showcased his comedic abilities in his effort to get fans to vote him into the 2008 All Star Game:You can vote for TJ and other star players for the NHL 15 cover vote here.ALLEN PARK, Mich. - As usual, Martin Mayhew chose his words carefully when assessing the off-season for the Detroit Lions but the biggest issue facing the team is fairly obvious.Ndamukong Suh, Detroits All-Pro defensive tackle, can become a free agent now, and if he leaves, the Lions would have to scramble to replace his formidable presence in the middle of their defence.I had an opportunity to sit down and talk with him on Monday, said Mayhew, Detroits general manager. We had a good conversation. We look forward to working with him to try to get a deal done.Mayhew spoke to reporters for about a half-hour Thursday, recapping a solid year in which the Lions made the playoffs for only the second time in the past 15 seasons.Suh was a big part of Detroits 11-win season, helping the Lions become one of the leagues top teams against the run.Mayhew said Suh is open to staying in Detroit.We talked about that on Monday, had a good conversation with him, Mayhew said. He wants to be here and we want him to be here. As I said before, I think thats a pretty good combination. Well see how it all plays out.Mayhew said hes leaving all options open with Suh including the possibility of using the franchise tag on him. The teams preference, though, is to reach a long-term deal.The fact that Detroit is coming off an encouraging season probably wont hurt.He likes to win, I know that, Mayhew said. I know he likes coach (Jim) Caldwell, I know hes very comfortable here in Detroit, so those things all play in our favour. At the end of the day money talks, so well have to step up in terms of pursuing him financially as well.Suhs situation however its resolved could have a major effect on the rest of Detroits plans this off-season.Defensive tackle Nick Fairley can also become a free agent, and the offence is coming off an uneven season in which the line struggled to protect quarterback Matthew Stafford.Although he addressed Suhs uncertain future, Mayhew wouldnt talk much about the status of any individual players. Veteran offensive linemen Rob Sims and Domiinic Raiola have reached the end of their contracts, and offensive lineman Travis Swanson a third-round pick in last years draft may be ready for a bigger role.

Making the playoffs was an important step in Caldwells first season as Detroits coach, but the Lions lost the regular-season finale at Green Bay with the NFC North title at stake. Then they fell 24-20 at Dallas in their post-season opener.We have to get better from a talent standpoint. We have to be a better football team, Mayhew said. I think were a good football team right now, but were not a great football team. We have to be able to go and win at Green Bay, which we have not done in a long time.Having a bye and having a home game would have obviously helped us in terms of the playoffs and advancing. In those games, the other team played better than we played and we lost.One thing Mayhew didnt want to do was dwell on the pass interference flag that was rescinded late in the loss to Dallas. The reversal by the officials cost the Lions what would have been a huge first down, and the Cowboys ended up rallying to win.I think that the focus on a couple bad calls takes away from the fact that two really good teams played an outstanding football game that day, Mayhew said. You know, when the penalty happened there were eight minutes left in the game when they got the ball back.We had every opportunity to do something to overcome that and do something positive to win that game and we didnt. ... Im from the old school of, No excuses, no explanations. Did you win the game? No, we didnt win it. They won it, they advanced. We hope to see them next year at some point.NOTES: Mayhew was asked about rugby star Jarryd Hayne, who visited Detroit recently during his tour of NFL teams. Were always on the lookout for players that can help us, Mayhew said. Well see what happens. Hes still out there and hes still looking at other teams as well. Im not sure whatll happen with him, but wed like to have him.___Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
