Marquez trains for national team with no logos on jersey

By Carlos Rodriguez, Associated Press MEXICO CITY (AP) — Defender Rafael Marquez, named by the U.S. Treasury Department on a sanctions list for alleged trafficking ties last year, trained with Mexico ahead of the World Cup wearing a logo-free jersey. During the practice in Mexico City, other players wore black shirts with the logos of three sponsors on the chest but Marquez's was blank. Marquez was not made available to the media to comment. "We have consulted with different experts and we decided to take actions that, to our understanding, will not prejudice" Marquez or the Mexican Soccer Federation, the federation said in a statement. "We hope Rafael Marquez finds himself in the best sporting position possible, and for the off-pitch issues that have arisen to be dealt with quickly," the statement added. Last August, Marquez was among 22 people sanctioned by the department's Office of Foreign Assets Control. He was accused of acting as a frontman for the Raul Flores Hernandez drug trafficking organization in the west-central city of Guadalajara. He denied wrongdoing and vowed to clear his name. The 39-year-old Marquez played for Barcelona, Monaco and New York Red Bulls and is considered one of the biggest stars in Mexican soccer history. He recently retired from Atlas in Mexico's top flight. Atlas' president had said in the past that he saw no problem with Marquez wearing a uniform with logos. Marquez is among the 28 players vying to be included in Juan Carlos Osorio's squad for Russia, expected to be announced June 4. It will be his fifth World Cup if he is selected. His inclusion in the final squad for Russia has been in doubt because of the allegations. In January, the federation's president Decio de Maria said a condition for Marquez's inclusion in the World Cup squad would be coming off the sanctions list. The vastly experienced Marquez has played 143 times for Mexico, scoring 19 goals for "El Tri." He remains a huge presence in Mexico's dressing room and is referred to by other players as "Master.".....»»

$500M settlement in Nassar case won t be shared equally

By Ed White and David Eggert, Associated Press DETROIT (AP) — The $500 million settlement between Michigan State University and hundreds of Larry Nassar's victims will be divided up after weighing many factors, including the date and victim's age when the sexual assaults occurred and the impact it had on their lives, lawyers say. The school, where the sports doctor worked for nearly 20 years, announced Wednesday that it would set aside $425 million for 332 women and girls who say Nassar abused them and another $75 million to cover future claims. But it won't have a role in determining how much each victim will receive. That will likely fall to one or two former judges or experienced mediators who will be selected by lawyers to oversee the process, said John Manly, who represents roughly 200 victims in the worst sexual abuse case in sports history. "This can be wrapped up in four or five months," he predicted. Simple math says $425 million divided by 332 people would be $1.28 million each. But it's not "share and share alike," said attorney David Mittleman, whose Lansing-area firm represents 111 victims. Indeed, claims must be evaluated in many ways. Manly said some people could receive "substantially" more than $1.28 million while others get much less. Attorneys will also get a share of any award under agreements they have with clients. "The age of the abuse, the duration of the abuse," Manly said, listing the likely factors. "Treatment in the future and the past. Have you lost earnings? Are there things about a particular case that are aggravating or mitigating." Mittleman said the dates of the assaults will be important. Older abuse probably will be worth less because without the settlement, Michigan State could have been shielded by a statute of limitations. New York attorney Michael Barasch is not involved in the Nassar case but has represented hundreds of victims sexually abused by New York priests. He said a pool of money is "definitely the way to go." "You've got to have a sensible, systematic and transparent solution," Barasch said. "Who better than a fair mediator accepted by everybody? ... Some of these people are going to be disappointed — guaranteed. But I can tell you from my church abuse cases, the vast majority are so appreciative of having finality." Michigan State was accused of ignoring or dismissing complaints about Nassar, some as far back as the 1990s. The school had insisted that no one covered up assaults, although Nassar's boss was later charged with failing to properly supervise him and committing his own sexual misconduct. In a statement Thursday, his first since the settlement, Michigan State President John Engler apologized, calling Nassar an "evil doctor" whose assaults "shocked our campus and the nation." The former Michigan governor was hired as interim leader after Lou Anna Simon's sudden resignation in January. Michigan State hasn't disclosed how it will pay for the settlement besides leaning on insurance companies. Engler told reporters in Lansing on Thursday that he doesn't plan to ask state lawmakers for money. Dianne Byrum, a member of the school's governing board, said Michigan State likely would borrow money, tap savings, delay big projects and consider budget cuts. She said a tuition increase tied specifically to the Nassar case is unlikely. Nassar, 54, will be locked up for the rest of his life under three decades-long sentences for molesting athletes with his hands and possessing child pornography. He's at a federal prison in Arizona. In addition to working at Michigan State, Nassar worked with Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics, which trains U.S. Olympians. His assaults were mostly committed in Michigan at his Lansing-area home, campus clinic and area gyms, but his accusers also said he molested them at a gymnastics-training ranch in Texas and at national and international competitions. The settlement applies only to Michigan State. Lawsuits are still pending against USA Gymnastics, the U.S. Olympic Committee and an elite gymnastics club in the Lansing-area. The deal surpasses the $100 million-plus paid by Penn State University to settle claims by at least 35 people who accused assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky of sexual abuse, though the Nassar agreement covers far more victims. ___ Eggert reported from Lansing......»»
