TSX Rapid News (1/8)

Welcome to TSX Rapid News for January 8th, 2010. Here are some of the early morning news from overnight into the midday:

– On Thursday, new Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren has announced that current Browns head coach Eric Mangini will stay on as the team’s head coach for next season. After a 1-11 start, Cleveland closed out the season with four straight wins, and it led to a stronger relationship between the players and coaches, and it gives a lot of optimism for next season. The only bad news on this is that one of the main reasons for Cleveland’s late season success, Josh Cribbs has cleaned out his locker over a contract dispute. Cribbs has been dynamic this season, setting records for kickoff returns all-time. Holmgren, please pay the man the money he deserves. Especially if you want to build a winner.

– Indiana Pacers F Danny Granger is looking to make his return to the court soon. He has been practicing and has felt no pain in the past couple of days. The decision will be made by head coach Jim O’ Brien and the Pacers training staff. He will miss the next two games at Minnesota Friday and at Oklahoma City on Saturday.

– Dallas Stars C Mike Ribeiro will miss the next 4-6 weeks after taking an accidental stick to the throat from New York Rangers forward Christopher Higgins during the Stars’ 5-2 loss on Wednesday. Ribeiro underwent a tracheotomy to repair a throat contusion in Dallas on Thursday morning and the Stars will definitely miss his 33 points (10 G, 23 A) he has accumulated this season.

– The Washington Wizards plan to fine several players who took part in Gilbert Arenas’ pregame ritual where he was pointing his fingers like guns and once again making light of a serious matter, along with his teammates, in which nearly all of them were laughing and smiling before Washington’s game with Philadelphia this past Tuesday. Arenas has been suspended indefinitely by the NBA for having three guns in the Wizards’ locker room during a spat with teammate Javaris Crittenton.

Be back tonight for the night edition of TSX Rapid News.
