Brendon Ayanbadejo didn't back down from his insistence that Jacksonville Jaguars right tackle Guy Whimper instigated the altercation that eventually led to a personal foul on and an ejection of the inside linebacker in the third quarter of the Ravens' eventual 12-7 loss at Everbank Field in Jacksonville Monday night. “The whole altercation started when the play was already over,” Ayanbadejo said of the defense stopping running back Deji Karim for no gain on third down-and-5 from the Ravens' 7-yard line.

Buck Showalter has been frustrated by the ambiguity of baseball's new replay review system, so when a call was overturned against the Orioles in the seventh inning of the club's 8-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday afternoon, the manager wanted some answers. When an initial forceout call at second base - Jonathan Schoop lost the ball on the exchange to his throwing hand - was overturned after a challenge by the Cardinals, Showalter jumped out of the dugout, headed toward the umpires and emphatically gestured that he wanted the headset to talk to the replay officials who reversed the call in New York.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter was tossed in the top of the sixth Saturday against the Los Angeles Angels after complaining about home plate umpire Angel Campos' strike zone. When Campos called a pitch that appeared to be well off the plate a strike against Nick Markakis in the sixth, Showalter yelled something and was immediately ejected. It was his first of the season and 20th of his career for Showalter. John Russell took over managing duties. Showalter has been displeased with the strike zones in each of the games during the Angels series.

Quintin Berry is fast enough that many of his stolen bases are basically uncontested. In one fell swoop Thursday night with Triple-A Norfolk, he swiped second, third and home plate without even drawing a throw. It's too bad the Orioles minor leaguer already been thrown out of the game. Berry was ejected after singling with two outs in the ninth inning of the Thursday's loss in Syracuse. The video doesn't really say what he did to earn it, but the home plate umpire Tom Honec threw Berry out of the game and Berry didn't take the news well.

The Orioles have done a good job of not allowing tough losses to linger, and they'll have to do that again this afternoon in their series finale against the Tigers at Camden Yards. “You get beat some times and today we got beat,” center fielder Adam Jones said following the Orioles' 10-3 loss to the Tigers. “It happens. But [Sunday] there's a series to win and according to my calculations, if you win a lot of series you should put yourself in pretty good situations.” The Orioles' loss Saturday to Detroit was bizarre.

Gilman football coach Biff Poggi is calling for a public apology from the officials who ejected him from Sunday's game against Manatee (Fla.) in the Brothers In Arms Classic at Byrd Stadium after assessing him with two unsportsmanlike conduct penalties -- one of which was rescinded upon review after the game. “I'm really upset,” Poggi said. “This was a national [internet] broadcast. It was at Byrd Stadium. It was in front of my wife and my children, my team, my coaches, our school community, and these guys haphazardly executed the rules and threw me out in a nationally public forum and I've never been thrown out of a game ever.

First-year Maryland coach Mark Turgeon, who was ejected in the second half of Wednesday night's 90-86 double overtime loss at Miami, will not be suspended for Saturday's home game against North Carolina. An ACC spokesman emailed The Sun today to say that John Clougherty, the league's director of officials, will not take any further action against Turgeon after reviewing the incident. Turgeon was ejected after arguing an offensive foul call against freshman Nick Faust with 7:46 remaining in regulation.

College football NCAA proposes rule change to allow ejection for hits above shoulders The NCAA has proposed a rule change that would eject any player who targets and hits a defenseless opponent above the shoulders. The Football Rules Committee, which met this week in Indianapolis, unanimously voted to increase the penalty to include an automatic ejection in addition to a 15-yard penalty. The proposal still awaits approval by the Playing Rules Oversight Panel on March 6. "Student-athlete safety will always be one of our primary concerns," said Air Force coach Troy Calhoun , the chairman of the committee.

An ejection from a game last week proved costly yesterday for Washington Bullets forward Juwan Howard, who was fined $5,000 by the league for making an obscene gesture as he was leaving the court.It was the second fine of the season leveled against Howard, who was docked $12,000 and suspended for one game for fighting with then-Miami Heat guard Bimbo Coles on Jan. 17."I'll abide by the rules," Howard said before last night's game in Salt Lake City. He declined to comment further.The recent fine resulted from an incident that began after Howard fouled out of Friday night's loss to Charlotte after being called for his second offensive foul.

Bud Norris silenced the Detroit Tigers hitters early in his outing Saturday night by pitching inside effectively, but when his 113th and final pitch sailed inside and hit right fielder Torii Hunter, it wasn't received well. Tempers flared and both teams' benches and bullpens emptied as Norris and Hunter jawed at each other, an outburst that provided more fireworks than the Orioles' offense in a 4-1 loss to the Tigers in front of an announced 24,517 at Camden Yards. Norris had just allowed a two-run homer to Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler with two outs in the eighth inning, a dagger that spoiled an otherwise strong night for the Orioles right-hander.

Middle Tennessee State linebacker Roderic Blunt issued a public apology Tuesday for his role in an incident during Navy's 24-6 win Monday in the Armed Forces Bowl in which Blunt was seen reaching into Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds' face mask after he was down and poking his eye. Blunt, who was not penalized after the third-quater play, was later ejected after his second of two unsportsmanlike-conduct penalties. Reynolds missed three plays while Navy staffers installed an emergency visor on his face mask.

I disagree with several points in your recent editorial about the ejection of a disruptive parent from a school board meeting in Baltimore County ("Robert Small deserves an apology," Sept. 23). You state it would have been better if the Baltimore County school superintendent had allowed a small breach in protocol. But for a long time many citizens felt have that "protocol" is used only to allow questions that bolster officials' desires, not to explore the proposals in question. I saw the way Mr. Small was treated as ridiculous.

The automatic distress signal came in to the Coast Guard about 10:30 p.m. Thursday: A D.C. Air National Guard pilot had ejected from a fighter jet some 35 miles off Chincoteague Island in Virginia. As a rescue team sprang into action, another fighter pilot was flying a damaged F-16C Fighting Falcon back to the D.C. air guard's headquarters at Joint Base Andrews in Prince George's County. Two others were circling the site where the fighters had collided. One jet was lost, to the likely tune of more than $20 million, and another was damaged.

It was a slow walk Mike Hargrove perpetrated from the Orioles' dugout to the Camden Yards infield yesterday. It was the sixth inning, but it was about to become the last inning - for him anyway. He was calm, steady and deliberate - exactly the kind of walk a major league manager uses when, deep in his fed-up heart of hearts, he knows he is out to achieve one objective: To get himself swiftly, unequivocally, unrepentantly ejected. At glacial speed, Hargrove walked toward his final destination, pondering: What perfectly profane insult could he use on second base umpire Larry Vanover to convey his complete and utter displeasure?

During the course of a long baseball season, there are always a few games that stand out for their wild, unpredictable nature. The Orioles' 7-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Thursday evening qualifies - but only because of one ridiculously weird inning that included an out that wasn't, a safe base runner who jogged off the field, and the end of Manny Machado's consecutive-innings streak with an ejection by an umpire making his big league...

If there was one thing Orioles fans were accustomed to since last August, it was the presence of Manny Machado manning third base. Since his call-up on Aug, 9, 2012, Machado had played every possible inning of every game with the Orioles. But in the fifth inning of Thursday night's contest against the Cleveland Indians, Machado was ejected for arguing with home plate umpire Will Little. It snapped a streak of 1,206 consecutive innings played by Machado to begin his major league career.
