EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The NFL says the former wife of suspended New York Giants placekicker Josh Brown turned down multiple requests to speak to the league about her allegations of being the victim of repeated domestic violence.In a statement issued Friday, the league said that it conducted a 10-month investigation into the circumstances surrounding the arrest of Brown in May 2015 in Woodinville, Wash., on a fourth-degree domestic violence charge.In the course of the investigation, the league said its investigators became aware that Browns wife had filed a statement with the county court alleging previous altercations between the spouses.Despite multiple attempts to speak with her about this incident and her previous statements, she declined to speak with us, the league said. We understand that there are many reasons that might have affected her decision not to speak with us, but we were limited in our ability to investigate these allegations.The NFL added that local law enforcement officers also declined to provide information on the case and previous allegations.Brown, who was suspended by the league for the opening game of the regular season, admitted Thursday that he grabbed his wifes wrist in the incident that led to his arrest. He called it a momentary thing.The King County prosecutors office investigated the case and did not file a charge, saying there was insufficient evidence.After its investigation, the NFL said it had insufficient information to corroborate prior allegations.In addition, no criminal charges were brought forward regarding the incident in question or prior allegations, the league said.The NFL therefore made a decision based on the evidentiary findings around this one incident as provided to us by the District Attorney.The league said it suspended Brown for a game because he had violated the personal conduct policy.We did so based on the evidence of this one incident as presented in the police report, Mr. Brown and his wifes statements to police that evening, and his statements in interviews with the NFL, the league said Friday.The personal conduct policy allows for discipline to be imposed even when criminal charges are not presented. It also allows the league to consider both aggravating and mitigating factors regarding discipline for domestic violence.After reviewing the evidence in this one incident, we imposed a one-game suspension for violation of the personal conduct policy, the league said.Browns appeal of the decision was turned down and the league announced his suspension on Wednesday.The 37-year-old will be allowed to practice with the Giants in training camp, but he will be suspended for the opening week, when the Giants are in Dallas.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Otis Taylor Jersey .

The Dane followed up his first European Tour title last weekend with eight birdies and just a single dropped shot on Thursday for a one-stroke advantage over South Africas Allan Versfeld and Portugals Ricardo Santos. Cameron Crockett has ridden a countless number of horses in his life but none quite compare to his stable star Barbass.But the young trainer wants Barbass to make the transition from talented two-year-old to proven three-year-old in his first-up run against his own age group in a benchmark handicap over 1400m at Rosehill on Saturday.Crockett is the son of famed horse trainer Max and has ridden many of his better horses over the years.At his best hes probably the best horse Ive ever ridden, Crockett told AAP.Ive never ridden any champions but Ive ridden plenty of good horses for Dad.He just gives you a feel thats different to any other horse.While he doesnt doubt Barbasss ability, Crockett is wary of horses which performed well in their juvenile season holding their form as three-year-olds.Hes still a horse thats got to prove that what he did the first time wasnt a fluke, Crockett said.The horse was the Mudgee trainers first Group One runner when he finished near the tail of the field in the J J Atkins at Doomben on June 11.While the elite level might have come too soon, the most compelling form reference from Barbasss two-year-old preparation was a runner-up finish behind Skylight Glow in a racee where Acatour was third.ddddddddddddBoth of those horses acquitted themselves well in Group company during the spring carnival.Two barrier trials over 1000m on November 6 and 18 showed Crockett that the sharpness which helped Barbass to win the $100,000 Inglis 2YO Classic (1100m) at Scone in May was no longer there.Hes given me every indication hes starting to need further now, Crockett said.After returning to the stable in August, bad weather in NSWs central west held up the horses preparation.He hasnt had an ideal prep but were getting back on top of things now hes had the couple of trials, Crockett said.Hes pretty fit. Id be disappointed if he wasnt running a good race on the weekend.Crockett said veteran trainer Les Bridge told him the difference between a good horse and a great horse was in improvement shown after a spell.Winx takes it to the next level every time she comes back in. Thats what separates her, Crockett said.With that in mind Crockett is hoping the best horse he has ever ridden will not fall the way of two-year-olds who fail to step up at three. ' ' '
