Just two days after the Washington Capitals were eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs by the New York Rangers, coach Dale Hunter announced he is leaving the team.
According to Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post: Hunter said:
…This was a tough decision. I enjoyed coaching these guys here and being back to the team. I always figure, it’s not my team but Ted’s team, but it’s still my team. It was the right thing for me and my family.
Newly acquired from the St Louis Rams, Cincinnati Bengals offensive guard Jacob Bell will retire after 8 seasons. In addition to citing Junior Seau’s suicide as ‘the cherry on top,’ Bell went on to say:
In the NFL we’re modern-day gladiators and we sell our soul to the game of football for a price, but what is that price? Everyone has a price and for me I wanted to make sure that I don’t have any regrets about my future in regards to what I’ve done in the NFL. At this point I can walk away with no regrets and left on my own terms where the NFL didn’t force me out and I made that decision on my own.
