Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson leaves his appeal hearing with the NFL on Tuesday (2nd December).

Adrian Peterson did not testify at his appeal hearing on Tuesday, according to a person familiar with the case.

Peterson gave a statement, said the person, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither side is discussing the case publicly.

Peterson left without comment after spending more than three hours at the hearing.

His attorney, Jeffrey Kessler, said only that the hearing will continue on Thursday.

The proceedings were held before long-time hearing officer Harold Henderson.

Peterson is seeking reinstatement after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended him for the rest of the season for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Peterson will not be considered for reinstatement before 15th April.

The 2012 NFL MVP hasn't played for the Minnesota Vikings since Week 1 after he was charged with child abuse in Texas.

He was placed on paid leave while the legal process played out, and he pleaded no contest 4th November to misdemeanor reckless assault for injuring his four-year-old son with a wooden stick.

The NFL Players Association called the punishment "unprecedented, arbitrary, and unlawful."

The union is arguing that Peterson should get credit for time served on the exempt list.

The NFLPA submitted a tape of a conversation between Peterson and Troy Vincent in which the NFL's executive vice president of football operations tells Peterson he would be credited with time served and receive a two-game suspension if he attended a disciplinary hearing 14th November with Goodell.

Peterson skipped that meeting.

The union wants Henderson to compel Vincent to testify on Thursday (4th December).

Vincent testified in Washington on Tuesday before a Senate Commerce Committee hearing about domestic violence in professional sports.

New York, New York, USA. December 2, 2014.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo practiced for the first time in over a week on Thursday (6th November) and hopes to start versus the Jacksonville Jaguars in the NFL International Series in London on Sunday (9th November). Cowboys owner Jerry Jones also welcomed the idea of basing a permanent NFL franchise in the UK.

SCRIPTING INFORMATION:

Tony Romo practiced for the first time in just over week on Thursday after injuring his back during the Dallas Cowboys' week eight loss at home to Washington.

The quarterback missed Dallas' week nine game last weekend against the Arizona Cardinals but is optimistic that he will start versus Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday in London, the third and final NFL International Series game of 2014.

After practice Romo said, "I think we did some things today that were positive. If it keeps going in that direction we'll have a good chance."

"If you're always waiting to feel great in every game you play in then you're only going to play in a couple of games a year. Across the National Football League, usually you'll find the best players are able to play at the same level with stuff going on and that's just part of the National Football League," he added.

Dallas head coach Jason Garrett was forced to start Brandon Weeden in Romo's place last week in the loss to Arizona and the back up quarterback will start again if the starter does not recover in time.

Asked if the aggressive Jacksonville pass rush and the potential hits he could take from the Jaguars defence would affect his decision to play Romo or not, Garrett said, "The Jacksonville pass rush is really good. They've got some individual guys that can rush, there's a mentality to rush the passer, they're very good as individual rushers but also when they work in games. They just do a good job of getting up the field and affecting the passing game. So regardless of what the health status is of your quarterback, you want to make sure you protect against these guys."

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones also made an appearance at practice on Thursday and gave his wholehearted support to having a permanent NFL franchise based in London in the future.

Jones, one of the league's most high profile owners, said, "I don't need to speculate. On a personal basis and speaking for the Dallas Cowboys, we would very much like to have a team in London. It has cache. It has an air about it of international competition. I think London is maybe one of two or three cities outside the United States that really does have all of the criteria that I would look at for having an NFL team."

"I think it could work, timing wise, logistics wise, all of those things, in this day and time work well enough to be something that is practical and workable as far as the NFL is concerned. So, I'm a big proponent of an NFL team in London," he added.

Jones' comments come after several weeks of speculation regarding an NFL franchise in London with British government officials such as chancellor George Osborne recently publicly backing the possibility of a team in the UK.

The Dallas v Jacksonville game will mark the 11th regular season to be played in London since the introduction of the annual International Series in 2007 and the NFL will again play three games in London next year in 2015, the league announced on Thursday.

The Miami Dolphins will host the New York Jets in an all AFC East clash in week four, the Buffalo Bills will take on nominal home team the Jacksonville Jaguars in week seven before the Kansas City Chiefs host the Detroit Lions in week eight.

Across the National Football League, usually you'll find the best players are able to play at the same level with stuff going on and that's just part of the National Football League.

They just do a good job of getting up the field and affecting the passing game. So regardless of what the health status is of your quarterback, you want to make sure you protect against these guys.

I think London is maybe one of two or three cities outside the United States that really does have all of the criteria that I would look at for having an NFL team. I certainly know that one of the reasons we're here this week and playing Sunday is to help increase the interest in the game and awareness of our game. I think it could work, timing wise, logistics wise, all of those things, in this day and time work well enough to be something that is practical and workable as far as the NFL is concerned.

Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker JT Thomas said his team would "love to be" the franchise in London if the NFL were to move a side to England and added "every time we play over here in London man, it's like a Superbowl".

Meanwhile Dallas Cowboys safety Barry Church has backed a new NFL franchise for London and told SNTV on Tuesday (4th November) that he hopes that the sport can eventually have participation in the Olympics, or have it's own American Football World Cup.

The Jacksonville Jaguars host the Dallas Cowboys at Wembley Stadium on Sunday (9th November).

The Jaguars landed in London on Monday (3rd November) while the Cowboys arrived on Tuesday (4th November).

Dallas come into the game on the back of a two-game losing streak a 20-17 defeat to the Washington Redskins (on October 28th) was followed by a 28-17 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals last Sunday (2nd November).

The Jaguars have also lost their last two contests, 27-13 to the Miami Dolphins (on October 26th) and 33-23 to the Cincinnati Bengals last Sunday (2nd November).

The Cowboys will be the favourites with a 6-3 record, while the Jaguars have had another season to forget and are 1-8.

The Jaguars are regular visitors to London and have been strongly linked to a permanent move to the English capital and linebacker JT Thomas admitted that the players have been discussing it.

"It's definitely a really cool idea and we talk about it back and forth, teammate to teammate, but those are things that a lot of strings have probably have to be pulled to make something like that happen. But we'd love to be able to come over to London and represent the UK."

Thomas thinks playing in London is "like a Superbowl".

A UK-based franchise has also been backed by Dallas Cowboys safety Barry Church, but he went one further by suggesting that the sport should target participation in the Olympics or having their own World Cup.

"Me personally I feel like it's a great idea to have a London franchise. I feel like expanding the game from United States to Europe, to anywhere, is great for the game in general. Hopefully we can expand it enough where we're able to have an Olympic team here and there and just like how it is here with soccer, you guys have an Olympic team and World Cup teams. Hopefully if we expand our NFL brand enough, that we can have an Olympic or World Cup of football, American Football that is, and we can get that accomplished" he said.

"I feel like it was the worst game I played as a Cowboy in recent history, so I've got to step up my game and I thought I did that against Arizona Cardinals, which was last week, but I feel I have got to step up even more for our defence. Being a leader of the defence I feel I have got to step up more against the Jacksonville Jaguars - hopefully we can get that obtained."

5. 00:38 Close up of Church and Eriksen

6. 00:44 SOUNDBITE: (English) Barry Church, Dallas Cowboys safety (Q: What do you need to address to stop your losing streak?)

"Oh definitely, I feel like the defence in the first six games, when we had our six game winning streak, I feel like we came out firing for the ball. We were coming out stripping the ball, coming out trying to get the ball for our offence, but these last couple of games I feel we lacked in that. We weren't stripping as much, we weren't hustling for the ball as much and we need to pick that up if we want to continue to get victories in this league."

8. 01:18 SOUNDBITE: (English) Barry Church, Dallas Cowboys safety (Q: You're the favourites against the Jacksonville Jaguars, what do you have to do to ensure complacency doesn't creep in?)

"We have just got to make sure during the week of practice starting tomorrow. You know we are practicing like we are back in the States, it's a regular practice week, we are going through our P's and Q's and we are at it one hundred per cent, because if we let anything creep in, if we're in there eighty per cent or anything like that, we know that we can give the Jacksonville Jaguars a chance to creep in and get the upset victory against us. So we've just got to come in here like it's a regular week and get prepared to play and I feel like we can do that and hopefully we can come away with a victory this week."

10. 01:57 SOUNDBITE: (English) Barry Church, Dallas Cowboys safety (Q: There has been plenty of suggestions about a NFL franchise in London, how do players feel about that?)

"Me personally I feel like it's a great idea to have a London franchise. I feel like expanding the game from United States to Europe, to anywhere, is great for the game in general. Hopefully we can expand it enough where we're able to have an Olympic team here and there and just like how it is here with soccer, you guys have an Olympic team and World Cup teams. Hopefully if we expand our NFL brand enough, that we can have an Olympic or World Cup of football, American Football that is, and we can get that accomplished."

Q: Do you think it would struggle to catch players and to recruit players having a team over here in London considering they will have to travel of course themselves?

"Oh I definitely feel like in the early on stages it would take a while for it to catch on and for the players to agree such, you know because that is a lot of travelling, eight weeks out of the year you are going to have to travel to the States. I feel like it's going to take a while to catch on, but I feel like eventually people would grow interest over here in American Football and it would catch on and they would come to the States and hopefully we can expand this brand."

"You know one thing, I've played in the NFL for two years, one thing I have noticed records are really irrelevant, every team has talent. You've got to bring it every week or you're going to get your butt beat. So really you can look at the records, that's more of a media thing, the media likes to look at the records and compare teams, but you know we're not doing that and we know we've got to show up, they have got a lot of talent."

15. 03:42 JT Thomas coaching players

16. 03:53 SOUNDBITE: (English) JT Thomas, Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker (Q: Travelling to London how difficult is it to adjust in your preparations for a game?)

"Well this is my second year to London and after you get past the first day, you get a good nights rest, it's pretty much the same routine for us and being here in London for us is like a second home, we can't wait to come every year and it's good to be here again."

Q: And obviously there has been talk of a franchise here in London, as players, and you've experienced it twice as you said, would you support that?

"I definitely would, I think it's something that's feasible and something that the NFL would love. Every time we play over here in London man, it's like a Superbowl. The fans always come out and support and the Jaguars fan base here is amazing, so we're happy to be back here again."

Q: And there are suggestions that the Jaguars could be the team that move here?

"We'd love to be, we definitely appreciate our audience here in London and maybe that's something we can look forward to in the future."

18. 04:45 SOUNDBITE: (English) JT Thomas, Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker (Q: With the suggestion that the Jacksonville Jaguars franchise could move to London you must as players talk about it with the rumours flying around?)

"It's definitely a really cool idea and we talk about it back and forth, teammate to teammate, but those are things that a lot of strings have probably have to be pulled to make something like that happen. But we'd love to be able to come over to London and represent the UK."

20. 05:19 SOUNDBITE: (English) JT Thomas, Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker (Q: Having lost to Cincinnati recently, what have you been working on to get ready for this game against Dallas Cowboys?)

"Well I tell you what Cincinnati was a really tough loss for us because we had a great week of practice leading up to Cincinnati. I think what plagued us in the game was tackling, so this week we'll definitely focus on making sure we're working on our tackling, making sure we are working on the key details it's going to take for us to win the game."

22. 05:39 SOUNDBITE: (English) JT Thomas, Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker (Q: Dallas Cowboys have lost their last two games , it's a good time to play them almost?)

"Right. It's always a good time to play a team, but the Cowboys are definitely talented and we're going to have to work on, we're going to have to have a really good week of practice to prepare for Sunday."

Despite over 14 hours' flight, players of Sacramento Kings and Brooklyn Nets had drills and interactions with basketball fans on Friday (10th October) in Shanghai, the largest city in China -

Players of both teams believe this trip will be beneficial for their pre-season preparation and the expansion of the NBA franchise in China, the most populous country in the world.

NBA China hosted NBA Fan Appreciation Day on Friday (10th October) evening at the Mercedes-Benz Arena to celebrate the 10th anniversary of NBA Global Games China and thank fans for their support of NBA Global Games China.

Around 14-thousand fans had the opportunity to watch the Sacramento Kings and Brooklyn Nets participate in drills and interactive games.

The Kings had their show first on the court, followed by the Nets.

This is DeMarcus Cousins' first visit to Shanghai.

Cousins, the Kings' centre, has become the face of the team, coming off his best season as a pro, and a strong showing with the US team at the FIBA World Cup this year.

After being acquired by the Kings in December 2013, Rudy Gay believes the trip overseas will help to build up the chemistry in the team.

Gay has been traded twice in two seasons, but appears to have found a home in Sacramento with both sides openly talking about a future together.

Kevin Garnett won big applause from the fans when he showed up on the court with his Nets' team-mates.

38-year-old Garnett, a 15-time NBA All-Star was traded to the Nets in July last year and this will be his 20th NBA season.

Three-time NBA All-Star Deron Williams averaged 14.3 points and 6.1 assists in 2013-1014, his lowest averages since his rookie season in 2005-2006, while playing through injury most of the year.

Williams said he is healthy now and the biggest challenge for the team currently is to bond together - and gain some understanding of each other.

The two NBA teams will play their first China Games in Shanghai on Sunday (October) and then the second one will be staged in Beijing on 15th October.

This is the 10th year that the NBA has held the China Games.

In 2004, the NBA became the first American professional sports league to play games in China with two games between the Houston Rockets and the Sacramento Kings in Shanghai and Beijing.

Summary: Oakland Raiders hold coaching clinic as they get ready for NFL International Series

Super Bowl XXXII MVP Terrell Davis insisted on Tuesday (23rd September) that Roger Goodell is the right man to lead the NFL forward and that the on field violence of the sport isn't linked to the spat of recent off field incidents. Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden and guard Kevin Boothe also looked ahead to the forthcoming International Series matchup against the Miami Dolphins in London.

The Oakland Raiders and the Miami Dolphins will contest the ninth NFL International Series at Wembley in London on Sunday (28th September) but off the field issues continue to dominate the league's agenda, even across the pond in England.

Whilst the NFL continues its efforts to promote the sport outside the United States the league has recently been grabbing foreign headlines but for all the wrong reasons.

League commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL have been roundly criticised for the mismanagement of the Ray Rice domestic violence case and Adrian Peterson, Minnesota's All-Pro running back, is currently the subject of a Grand Jury investigation involving child abuse.

Oakland v Miami is the first of three regular season games to be staged in London over the next two months, a sign of the sport's growing popularity away from home shores, but as the Raiders staged a Play 60 community event on Tuesday (23rd September) a large amount of focus was on the current state of the league's front office and its handling of off field incidents.

Terrell Davis, formerly of the Denver Broncos and MVP for Super Bowl XXXII, voiced his support for Goodell and claimed he was the right man for the commissioner's office.

"I'm a big fan of Roger Goodell, always have been and I think he's the right man for the job," he said.

He added that he did not believe there was any link between the violence of the sport in the stadiums and violent acts off the field.

"No. I don't buy that. If you showed me some research on that, I might look at that differently but there's no research out there that shows there is a link the violence on the field and what's happening in people's homes," said Davis.

Oakland running back Darren McFadden offered his opinion on the state of the league too and said, "I don't think it's anything specific about the NFL. Some guys have made a few bad decisions and so it's something we try to put behind us and move forward with."

Sunday will mark the first time the Raiders will play in an International Series game in London and the team travelled direct from Boston following their week three loss to New England.

Commenting on the challenge of playing in London, McFadden continued, "For us, we're just trying our best to stick to our normal schedule. It's totally different for us, we're used to doing events with kids but the time change is a big difference so we're just trying to stick to our daily routines and things."

The Raiders have lost all three of their games so far in 2014 but guard Kevin Boothe said the team is improving and looking for first win of the season against Miami.

"We've definitely not gotten off to the start that we would like but we understand things can change quickly in the NFL. We're progressing the right directions. We're hoping we can have a great week of practice this week and get a big needed win against Miami this week," he said.

There were really no policies in place for what happened (with Ray Rice) and he did the best that he could do. Going forward he can put in the right principles and the right sort of people around it that now going forward there's going to be some uniformity where you don't have to make decisions based on individual conduct. I'm a big fan of Roger Goodell, always have been and I think he's the right man for the job."

If you showed me some research on that, I might look at that differently but there's no research out there that shows there is a link the violence on the field and what's happening in people's homes."

Summary: NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell discusses personal conduct policies

National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell hosted a press conference on Friday, September 19th, to address the various controversies swirling around the league.

SCRIPTING INFORMATION:

Commissioner Roger Goodell says the NFL wants to implement new personal conduct policies by the Super Bowl.

Goodell was short on specifics at a news conference on Friday, his first public statements in more than a week about the rash of NFL players involved in domestic violence. More defiant than contrite as he was hammered with questions, Goodell said he has not considered resigning.

Prior to the press conference Procter & Gamble announced they are cancelling an on-field breast cancer awareness promotion they had been planning with the NFL. P&G will still donate US$100,000 to the American Cancer society as planned and said breast-cancer awareness is a "critically important program to support women and their health."

The consumer products maker is the latest major sponsor - following PepsiCo and Anheuser-Busch - to show concern over the NFL's handling of domestic abuse allegations against several players.

The league has faced increasing criticism that it has not acted quickly or emphatically enough. The commissioner reiterated on Friday that he botched the handling of the Ray Rice case and will properly react to the findings of Robert Mueller's investigation. The NFL had asked the former FBI director to conduct an investigation into the league's handling of the Rice case and determine how the second video of Rice's assault was not seen until weeks later. The law firm where Mueller is now a partner, WilmerHale, has connections to the NFL but Goodell insisted that it wasn't a conflict of interest because Mueller himself has not previously worked with the league.

The commissioner and some NFL teams have been heavily criticised for lenient or delayed punishment of Rice, Adrian Peterson and other players involved in recent domestic violence cases. Less than three weeks into the season, five such cases have made headlines.

In a memo to the clubs late on Thursday (18 September), Goodell said that within the next 30 days, all NFL and team personnel will participate in education sessions on domestic violence and sexual assault. The memo said the league will work with the union in providing the "information and tools to understand and recognise domestic violence and sexual assault." Goodell said on Friday that he will establish a conduct committee. One of the key questions is how to balance the league's desire to take a stance against violent acts with the due process of the legal system.

The NFL has also added domestic violence experts as consultants and said it will provide financial, operational and promotional support to the National Domestic Violence Hotline and the National Sexual Violence Resource Center.

New York, New York, USA. 19 September, 2014.

1. 00:00 SOUNDBITE (English): Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner: "At our best, the NFL sets an example that makes a positive difference. Unfortunately, over the past several weeks, we have seen all too much of the NFL doing wrong. That starts with me. I said this before back on August 28th and I say this now: I got it wrong in the handling of the Ray Rice matter, and I'm sorry for that. I got it wrong on a number of levels, from the process that I led to the decision that I reached. But now I will get it right and do whatever is necessary to accomplish that."

2. 00:54 SOUNDBITE (English): Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner: "The same mistakes can never be repeated. We will do whatever is necessary to ensure that we are thorough in our review process and that our conclusions are reliable. We will get our house in order first."

3. 01:17 SOUNDBITE (English): Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner: "Well, again, we've been in contact with our sponsors - several of them have promotions in the marketplace that are inconsistent with obviously what's going on here and we understand that. And what we said is, we're going to clean up our house, we're going to get this straight and we're going to make a difference and they want to see us make that difference and that's up to us to deliver on - they want to see us achieve that. They're not looking for talk, they want to see action and that's what we're looking for and that's why we've been focused over the last couple of weeks so hard on getting it right, do the things we said we were going to do and get it right and do the hard work. This is not a quick fix, this is something we've got to work hard at. And we will."

4. 02:10 SOUNDBITE (English): Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner: Q: Have you considered resigning at any point throughout this? "I have not. I'm focused on doing my job and doing (it to) the best of my abilities. I understand when people are critical of your performance but we have a lot of work to do. That's my focus. We've been busy in the last couple of weeks. We have results to show for it - we've talked about some of them in my statement - but I'm proud of the opportunity that we have to try to make a difference here and do the right thing. We've acknowledged that we need to change what we're doing, now we have to get to what are those changes going to be."

5. 02:53 SOUNDBITE (English): Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner, on the increased suspension to Ray Rice: "As I said that, we got new information from the first time that I met with him to my initial discipline - which, three weeks later I acknowledge was not sufficient, that it was clear there was an act of domestic violence but it was inconsistent with the way he described what happened. When we had that new information we had the ability to say we're going to interject and we're going to take additional action. And that's what we did."

6. 03:27 SOUNDBITE (English): Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner, on why the initial video was not enough to force the proper punishment: "It was, and we saw obviously the original video and it was clear that a domestic violence violation had occurred - that was clear to us, and it was horrifying. And that's why we took the step we did, we did the two game suspension and a fine of $500,000. It was not sufficient and that's because our policies - as I indicated earlier - had fallen behind where we need them to be. We needed to get those policies in a position where the standard for that kind of violation has to be much higher and that's why three weeks later we raised that standard and we said this is not going to be acceptable behaviour and when it occurs it's a minimum six games or standard of six games with aggravating circumstances that we can consider and have additional penalties if necessary."

On Wednesday night (10 September) in Philadelphia, AP Reporter Rob Maaddi gave his account of the NFL's possession of the video which shows Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee at an Atlantic City casino in February.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. 10 September 2014.

1. 00:00 SOUNDBITE: (English) Rob Maaddi, AP Reporter

"Today, we reported that a law enforcement official sent a copy of the video from the elevator showing Ray Rice punching his fiancee at the time, now his wife. And he sent that to an NFL league executive. We have also learned that there is confirmation from an unidentified woman at the league office calling my source and leaving a voicemail which I heard, a 12-second voicemail, saying that she received it, and agreeing that it's terrible."

2. 00:36 SOUNDBITE: (English) Rob Maaddi, AP Reporter

"At this point, the NFL is adamant that no one in their league office, to Roger Goodell's knowledge, saw that video. We know that one person at the very least had access to and saw that video. What happens next is going to be an investigation internally by the NFL, and it'll be up to them to determine their course of action."

3. 01:02 SOUNDBITE: (English) Rob Maaddi, AP Reporter

"We're hearing a lot of people out there calling for Roger Goodell to step down. But again, at this point, all we know is that someone at the league office had access to and saw that video. We do not know that Roger Goodell eyeballed that video himself."
