Steelers lose 54-year-old tradition with NFL training camps staying home

first_imgThe NFL, to help contain the spread of COVID-19, has ordered all 32 teams to conduct their 2020 training camps in their own local team facilities.But that doesn’t mean every team will feel “at home” while not going away. For the Steelers, the league mandate brings an abrupt end to a tradition that began in 1966. Given the ardent nature of Steelers fans, the short trip from Pittsburgh was also a key revenue driver for the businesses in Latrobe in July and August. But in a year when NFL camps are bound to have no sweaty faithful in attendance, the experience wasn’t set up to be the same, anyway.Although most teams hold camps in their team facilities now, other teams impacted by a full home camp are the Raiders (Napa, Calif., since 1996) and Cowboys (Oxnard, Calif., since 2004). Las Vegas will conduct camp in its new Henderson, Nev., headquarters, while Dallas won’t travel from The Star in Frisco, Texas.Should the fight against the novel coronavirus take more positive turns, one can presume the Steelers will resume camping in Latrobe in 2021. For one year, however, they will need to adjust to breaking a long-standing routine. Latrobe, Pa., has been known for two things as a small town of less than 10,000 people about an hour east of Pittsburgh. The first is being the birthplace of Rolling Rock Beer. The second is hosting the Steelers annually for their preseason preparations for more than five decades.NFL FREE AGENCY: Best players available at each positionThis year, the Steelers won’t be training at Saint Vincent College on the field named for Chuck Noll, their late Super Bowl-winning coach.While the Steelers have a terrific modern facility called the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Sportsplex in the South Side neighborhood in their own backyard, Latrobe has been the NFL’s best, most picturesque out-of-town camp around for a long time, seeing most of the franchise’s greatest players pass through over 54 years. The community in the Laurel Highlands has provided a beautiful hilly backdrop for the intensity and heat of camp.last_img read more

‘Prisoners’ to Vote in October Elections

first_imgMembers of the House of Representatives have unanimously voted to allow the National Elections Commission (NEC) and the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) to grant the constitutional rights of pre-trial detainees to vote in the ensuing 2017 elections.The House’s Plenary took the decision on Tuesday, February 14, following a recommendation from its Joint Committee on Judiciary and Election based on expert opinions from the Liberia National Bar Association and the Carter Center. Pretrial detainees are accused persons in a criminal case that are held by law before trial, either because of failure to post bail or due to the denial of release under a pre-trial status.According to the Committees’ findings from the legal and electoral experts, all pre-trial detainees have a vested constitutional right to vote based on the cornerstone of the legal system, where one is assumed to be innocent until proven guilty by a court of competent jurisdiction.“That all prisoners who are not serving sentences for the commission of an infamous crime have a vested constitutional right to vote; that the Plenary informs the National Elections Commission that the interpretation of the law indicates that all prisoners have the right to vote except those serving sentences for the commission of an infamous crime as stated in Section 5.1 of the New Elections Law of Liberia.“That this right of the prisoners to vote is granted by the Constitution in Article 77(b) and further defined by Section 5.1 of the New Elections Law be followed by creating the means and procedure for the registration and voting of the prisoners as per the category supra,” the report said.“Who may vote; except one who has been judicially declared to be incompetent or of unsound mind, or who has been barred from voting as result of his or her conviction and imprisonment for an infamous crime which disenfranchised him as a voter and has not been restored to full citizenship…,” the report further said.The House’s Judiciary Chairman, Rep. Worlea Saywah-Dunah, said in the New Elections Law, Chapter 5, Section 1, only those who committed “infamous crimes” cannot be allowed to vote.The Joint Committee said the Liberia National Bar Association was represented by its President, Cllr. G. Moses Paegar and Cllr. Albert Sims, two prominent constitutional lawyers; and the Carter Center was represented by Cllr. Robert N. Gbarbea and Ms. Barbara, electoral experts.“In their presentations, the Bar President, Cllr. Paegar, and his team said pre-trial prisoners have the right under the law to participate in the decision making process. Cllr. Gbarbea and his colleague also concurred with the Bar Association.”The public hearing was held on January 25, 2017.The investigation of the voting right of pre-trial detainees was due to a letter to Bong County District # 3 Representative George S. Mulbah, the Chairman on the House’s Defense Committee.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
