    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Walt Aikens Jersey . -- Justin Blackmon pinned his problems on his decisions. Blackmon, suspended the first four games of the 2013 season for violating the NFLs substance-abuse policy, acknowledged Monday that hes at a crossroads in his career and his personal life. But the Jacksonville Jaguars receiver insisted he doesnt have an alcohol or substance-abuse problem. "Out of this whole thing one of the main things I would say that I had a problem with was just making a poor decision, making a selfish decision at that and not thinking about the long term of it and just thinking about at the time," Blackmon said following the teams first organized team activity. "If you want to ask if I have a problem? I have a problem with making a poor decision." Blackmon has a credibility problem, too. It was just 11 months ago that that Blackmon apologized for getting arrested on a DUI charge in Stillwater, Okla. -- tests showed his blood-alcohol content to be three times the legal limit -- and vowed that this is "not who Im going to be." Blackmon eventually pleaded guilty to aggravated DUI, which put him in the leagues substance-abuse program. Although he declined Monday to reveal what triggered his suspension, its likely he failed a random test. The former Oklahoma State star and fifth overall pick in the 2012 draft also was arrested on a misdemeanour DUI charge in Texas in 2010 after officers caught him speeding on a suburban Dallas highway. The charge was later reduced to an underage alcohol possession charge. Although it sure seems like this is a pattern of behaviour, Blackmon said hes "confident" his latest mistake will be his last. "I dont think anybody wants to be in the position that Im in right now, and I dont think anybody wants to be in a position that can be any worse," Blackmon said. "Im not going to go into it and say I want to be in this position because thats not where I want to be. All I can do is come out here and work every day and get better each day. Coach Gus (Bradley) says every day, Today is the most important day, and thats all I can do is come out here every day and try to improve and take care of everything else as it comes." Blackmon declined comment when asked whether he plans to enrol in a rehabilitation program. Blackmon, who caught 64 passes for 865 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie, will miss games against Kansas City, Oakland, Seattle and Indianapolis to open the season. He will be eligible to return to practice Monday, Sept. 30. He will be allowed to attend meetings and be inside the facility during the suspension, but cant practice or play. Blackmon apologized to teammates shortly after the suspension was announced April 30. "He came across well," veteran centre Brad Meester said. "He just apologized for what he did. He knew he was wrong and said it wouldnt happen again. We all accepted that. ... We cant control what people do what they leave here. We cant change what happened in the past. We have to be there for him and help him through this and make sure this doesnt happen again." Running Maurice Jones-Drew, though, said reaction to Blackmons suspension has been "out of control." "The media just blows it out of proportion," Jones-Drew said. "A lot of people make several mistakes. If youre that age and you have that amount of money, how would you act? If you answer that question truthfully, you can go from there." Plenty of first-round draft picks, however, go their entire careers without landing in the substance-abuse policy or on the suspended list. "You have to do the right thing no matter where you are," Meester said. "Were blessed with this opportunity. Youd hate to lose that opportunity because of something dumb you did outside of here. You dont want that to be the reason you cant play this game." If Blackmon gets another suspension while in the program, it would be for a full season. "Were going to see what kind of character he has," Jones-Drew said. Blackmons four-game hiatus will cost him about$220,000. It also triggered language in his contract that voids future guarantees, meaning the Jaguars could cut him without having to pay about $10 million that remains on a four-year, $18.5 million contract. Blackmon made it clear he wants to move on from the suspension, but the 23-year-old receiver stopped short of saying he plans to change his lifestyle. "Ive just got to make better decisions," he said. "Like I said, my problem was I made a selfish decision and I apologize for that. I apologized to my teammates and I apologized to my family for it. Thats something that I did and I take full responsibility for it." Mike Hull Jersey . A lawyer for MLB, Matthew Menchel, confirmed Wednesday the league dropped its case against Biogenesis of America, its owner Anthony Bosch and several other individuals. The lawsuit had accused Biogenesis and Bosch of conspiring with players to violate their contracts by providing them with banned performance-enhancing substances. JaWuan James Jersey . LeBron James and Chris Bosh didnt need any more.

MONACO -- ??? Monaco sealed first place in Group E of the Champions League with a 2-1 win over Tottenham in a thrilling display of attacking football on Tuesday.Needing just a draw against the only side to remain unbeaten in the Premier League to progress to the knockout phase, Monaco did not hold back. However, it took the hosts 48 minutes to break the deadlock with a goal from Djibril Sidibe, who then turned provider when Thomas Lemar scored the winner five minutes later.Harry Kane had equalized from the penalty spot for Spurs, which can no longer qualify for the knockout phase.We got ourselves back in the game at 1-1 and it was schoolboy to concede straight after that, Kane said. We had to try to grind out a win because we were not great tonight. The second goal took the stuffing out of us. I just dont think on the day we were good enough.Monaco went ahead when Sidibe, unmarked in the box, planted a powerful header into the net from Benjamin Mendys cross.Monaco could not hold on to its lead for long as a rare mistake from Kamil Glik, who dragged Dele Alli down in the area, resulted in a penalty. Kane converted it with a powerful spot-kick.But Spurs defensive inadequacies were exposed less than a minute after their equalizer. From the resulting kick-off, Sidibe burst down the right before crossing for Lemar. The highly-praised midfielder, who scored in the corresponding fixture in September at Wembley, restored Monacos advantage with a shot into the far corner.It was a great evening, Sidibe said. Were playing with a conquering mindset at the moment.It was a deserved win for Monaco, which was the better team for most of the game.In a lively start, Tottenham createdd the first dangerous move when Son Heung-min beat the offside trap on a swift counterattack but lost his one-on-one with Danijel Subasic. Matt Moore Jersey. The South-Korean winger vainly tried to dribble the Monaco keeper and was forced wide.The hosts replied immediately through Fabinho, who made the most of a poor clearance to make his way into the box and was brought down by Eric Dier. Radamel Falcao, the Monaco captain, took the penalty -- only to see his low shot to the bottom corner superbly blocked by Hugo Lloriss diving save.With Kevin Wimmer replacing Jan Vertonghen in the heart of Tottenhams back four, Spurs struggled defensively and Monaco -- the highest-scoring side in Europes main domestic leagues -- gradually took control.With its midfielders often losing possession and committing a series of fouls as they tried to recover the ball, Tottenham failed to produce a single shot in goal during the opening 45 minutes.The French league side had another good chance when Mendy sent a cross-shot goalwards that Lloris parried away. Left unmarked in the area, Monaco striker Valere Germain tried his luck from the rebound but his header was too weak to surprise Lloris.Falcao and Sidibe then missed the target and Germain again came close after a pass from Bernardo Silva in midfield sent him through. The striker raced down the right flank and fired an angled low shot that ended just wide.Monaco created two more clear chances through Glik and Falcao after Lemar put the hosts back in front but Lloris ensured a nervy finale with some decisive saves.
