A federal appeals court has struck down a Federal Communications Commission policy on indecency. The court determined that regulations barring the use of "fleeting expletives" on radio and television violated the First Amendment because they were vague and could inhibit free speech. The case stems from a challenge by Broadcasters to the F.C.C.'s decision in 2004 to begin enforcing stricter standards about decency . This followed—among many occurrences-- the Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction during Superbowl 2004. The broadcasters also argued that the revolution in technology renders the old rules obsolete. The decision is expect to be appealed to the Supreme Court.

Tim Tebow is a good guy, and now he has the award to prove it.
On Tuesday the Professional Football Writers of America (PFWA) named the New York Jets quarterback the winner of the 2012 Good Guy Award, which "is given to a NFL Player for his qualities and professional style in helping pro football writers do their jobs."
It's no secret that Tebow can handle pressure on the field, as he demonstrated after becoming the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos in 2011 when the team had only a 1-4 record. Not only did he eventually lead his team to an AFC West title, but on five separate occasions he helped them to mount fourth quarter comebacks for wins. more >>

Despite speculation about whether 25-year-old Sanchez would get along with Tebow, 24, the starting QB spoke about his respect for his newest teammate in an interview with Yahoo Sports! Sanchez admitted that although Tebow does get a great deal of attention, he could handle it.
"Tim is making whatever he makes, he's a good leader, a great person, a hard worker and he plays quarterback and he can do other stuff," Sanchez said. "Yeah, does he come with more attention than other players? Sure, but who cares? To me, if I can't handle that, I shouldn't play here." more >>
