DURHAM, N. Cheap Swingman Suns Jerseys.C. -- A North Carolina football player facing charges of sexual battery and assault on a female student says the two had consensual sex and that he did not rape nor drug her.In his first public comments, Allen Artis said Tuesday he isnt a rapist and is eager to get the case behind him. One of his attorneys, Kerry Sutton, also said Artis has passed a polygraph test about the February incident.Everything was completely consensual that happened that night, said Artis, who was sitting on a couch in his attorneys home flanked by his mother Stephanie Artis and an aunt, Avis Artis. Thats the truth.The junior reserve linebacker, indefinitely suspended from the team, turned himself earlier this month on the misdemeanor charges. His next court date is Thursday.The arrest warrant stated Artis had sex with a female UNC student against her will when he should have reasonably known that the other person was mentally incapacitated and physically helpless.The warrant also states he pulled on her bra strap causing an indentation on her shoulder/back during the incident.The woman, Delaney Robinson, said earlier this month she had become intoxicated after being out with friends and unable to consent. The Associated Press typically doesnt identify alleged victims of sexual assault, but Robinson held a Sept. 13 news conference, saying she had filed for the misdemeanor charges after police and prosecutors indicated there wasnt enough evidence to pursue felony charges.Denise Branch, an attorney representing Robinson, issued a statement reiterating Robinsons allegation that the sex was not consensual.On February 14, 2016, my client Delaney Robinson was raped and assaulted by Allen Artis, Branch said in an email to the AP. On September 13, 2016, she presented admissible evidence in support of her case to a magistrate. As a result, two misdemeanor warrants were issued for the arrest of Allen Artis. Any purported, and inherently unreliable polygraph test does not alter the fact that my client never consented to have sex with Allen Artis.Orange County district attorney Jim Woodall told the AP on Tuesday that the case remains an ongoing investigation. He said he was aware of the polygraph report, and is also in communication with Branch and Robinson.I cant say when it will be complete, and I am personally involved in speaking with the UNC Department of Public Safety, Woodall said. We did not have a file, we were only advising them, and last week I got the full file. I have reviewed everything that we have to date in the investigation, and Im going to continue to review it.Branch has also criticized the way campus police handled a rape kit and the questioning of Artis, a native of Marietta, Georgia.Artis indefinite suspension was the result of an automatic university policy when an athlete is charged with a misdemeanor. Any reinstatement would come after a review from athletic director Bubba Cunningham, head coach Larry Fedora and school officials.Artis has played in 27 career games as a reserve and on special teams with 20 tackles. He had one tackle through the first two games. Team spokesman Kevin Best said Artis last practiced Sept. 11, which was two days before Robinsons news conference. Danuel House Jersey. They hope to persuade the other team owners and commissioner Roger Goodell to put pressure on Redskins owner Daniel Snyder to drop the nickname they find offensive. "Given the way the meeting transpired," Ray Halbritter, an Oneida representative and leader of the "Change the Mascot Campaign," said Wednesday, "it became somewhat evident they were defending the continued use of the name.

Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite having a poor game by his high standards. Forward Eduardo gave Ajaccio the lead in the sixth minute after being set up by right winger Benjamin Andre, and the Corsican side looked comfortable in the first half, with the lively Johan Cavalli causing problems with his probing runs from midfield. http://www.cheapsunsjerseys.com/...p-t-j-warren-jersey. They had already blown a double-digit lead, fans were hitting the exits, and a long seven-game road trip waited at the end. TORONTO -- The team that was built to beat Canada didnt beat anyone.And really, this ending was just about perfect. If youre going to go down in flames, go all the way.Team USA most certainly did, ending its disappointing World Cup appearance with a 4-3 loss to the Czech Republic on Thursday.The American players were booed off the ice by the at the Air Canada Centre crowd at the conclusion of the game.Team USA pushed back in a meaningless game after trailing by two goals through two periods of play, to at least avoid a meltdown reminiscent of the 5-0 loss in the bronze-medal game in Sochi during the 2014 Olympics, but its very small consolation in a disastrous tournament.They were given a spot in the easiest World Cup group, with Team Europe and Czech Republic the consensus No. 7 and No. 8 teams in this tournament. Team USA managed just three goals against those two teams.During the second period against the Czechs, Team USA defenseman Ryan Suter scored an own-goal, one that gave the Czech Republic its second goal of the game and it was a moment that pretty much captured the whole tournament for the Americans. So many of their problems in this tournament were self-inflicted -- from questionable roster decisions to forgetting to show up on time against Team Europe in the opener, an underwhelming performance in which they never recovered.Justin Abdelkader, whose inclusion on the first draft of the Team USA roster became a point of debate for those who disagreed with GM Dean Lombardis plan, got a small bit of redemption with his first gooal of the tournament, converting on a great feed from Dustin Byfuglien, but it was a rare highlight in this tournament for the Americans. Cheap Phoenix Suns Jerseys. Team USA finishes 0-3 with a goal-differential of minus-6, which pushed Finland at the bottom of the standings. For a team that entered this World Cup with aspirations of winning it all, its as disappointing a final tally as could have been imagined.Three stars:1. Milan Michalek, F, Team Czech Republic: Sure, one of his goals came when Suter inadvertently knocked the puck past Team USA goalie Ben Bishop, but he finished with two goals for a team that struggles to score. Thats worthy of top billing. The Michalek family can leave this tournament with pride, with Milan and Zbynek combining for three goals in the game.2. Petr Mrazek, G, Czech Republic: He allowed three goals but came up big when needed most in the third period. He absolutely robbed Patrick Kane with a sprawling save in the third period while the Czech Republic was clinging on to a one-goal lead. He made another one on Abdelkader with just over two minutes left. He finished with 36 saves.3. Ryan McDonagh, D, Team USA: His shorthanded goal gave the game new life and actually showed his team wasnt willing to roll over without some fight in the third period. There were a lot of problems with Team USA in this tournament, but McDonagh wasnt one of them. He ended up with the team lead in goals, with two. ' ' '
