New England Patriots star Tom Brady was likely to have been "generally aware" of a plot to deflate balls used in a key playoff game, an NFL probe ruled Wednesday, dealing a blow to the image of one of the most prominent athletes in American sportNew England Patriots star Tom Brady was probably aware of a plot to deflate balls used in a key playoff game, an NFL probe ruled Wednesday, dealing a blow to the image of one of the most prominent athletes in American sport. A National Football League investigation into the "Deflategate" affair found that it was "more probable than not" that Patriots employees had conspired to tamper with the pressure of balls in the team's AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts, which they won 45-7. It was not immediately clear what sanctions the NFL would take following the bombshell findings in the 243-page report, which named kit men John Jastremski and Jim McNally as the suspected architects of the plot.

A television cameraman works during the Spanish league football match Sevilla FC vs Club Atletico de Madrid at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium in Sevilla on March 1, 2015The race for Spain's La Liga title faces a chaotic conclusion after the country's football federation said Wednesday it would cancel all domestic matches in a row over TV rights. The proposed shutdown called by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) will first affect the penultimate round of fixtures due to take place on May 17. The RFEF said in a statement it will "suspend competitions of all categories starting from May 16 indefinitely". If there is no resolution to the dispute, the key May 17 title clash between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid would fall victim to the stoppage as would the concluding weekend.

California water regulators have imposed unprecedented mandatory water cutbacks, but now comes the tough part: coaxing reluctant residents to let their lawns immediately die and start taking three-minute showers. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)GARDEN GROVE, Calif. (AP) — It was with more hope than accuracy that the founder of this Orange County city picked the name Garden Grove in 1874 for what was little more than an open plain under the sweltering Southern California sun.
