    Tim Howard responds to suspension: 'There is a line that shouldn’t be crossed'

    Colorado Rapids goalkeeper Tim Howard has issued his first public response since being hit with a three-game suspension for altercations with fans in his team's 31 loss to Sporting Kansas City on April 9. In announcing the suspension a week ago, Major League Soccer pointed to two incidents: A profane verbal interaction with a fan that took place during the game, and a physical confrontation with another fan after it was over. In a Facebook post published on Friday, Howard accepted blame for his actions but also criticized the fans' behavior and the stadium security's efforts at keeping said fan under control.

    The Sun apologises to Barkley over column

    Everton star Ross Barkley received an apology from The Sun tabloid newspaper on Saturday over a column that made "unfavourable comparisons" to a gorilla. The newspaper printed the apology and said it had not been aware that the England midfielder's grandfather was from Nigeria. Columnist Kelvin MacKenzie, a former editor of The Sun, had also written that the only other people in Liverpool with Barkley's income were drug dealers.
