Douglas Heads To Trial Over Assault Claims

A lawsuit accusing former Eagles defensive end Hugh Douglas of assaulting his former girlfriend is heading to trial.

Jury selection is scheduled for next Thursday in federal court in New Haven, Connecticut. The trial is scheduled to begin on Dec. 7.

Hope Davila claims Douglas assaulted her multiple times, including during an incident in September in which she alleges he grabbed her by the neck and slammed her against a wall at a Hartford hotel.

The incident resulted in an arrest, but no jail time after Douglas pleaded no contest to misdemeanor breach of peace. Davila, who is being represented by Philly native Gloria Allred, is upset with the plea bargain and is suing for damages for alleged physical and emotional harm.

Douglas denies Davila’s allegations. According to a police report, Douglas told Hartford police that Davila’s injuries were from “rough sex,” but couldn’t explain the bruise on her head. His attorney, Corey Brinson, later argued Davila was just upset that Douglas refused to pay for breast enhancements.

As recently as early November, the former defensive end remained defiant, telling Sportsradio 94.1 WIP host Josh Innes he was falsely accused.

“The young lady was drunk and changed her story several times before she got to the story where she said I beat her up,” Douglas told Innes on Nov. 6. “She was not being truthful about the story she was telling.”

Requests for comment from Douglas weren’t immediately returned.

Douglas currently co-hosts a morning sports show on The Game 92.9 in Atlanta. He was fired as an ESPN analyst back in August 2013 after allegedly threatening his former co-host, Michael Smith.

The United States has been eliminated from the 2022 World Cup, and FOX Sports Radio host Doug Gottlieb believes that will return the sport back to its usual place inside the sports media landscape.

“I’m sure people in the soccer world are still talking about the World Cup,” Gottlieb said on his In The Bonus podcast Monday. “But zero people I know in real life are talking about the World Cup today.

“You can tell me how big soccer is in the world — and I’m not gonna dispute it — and you can tell me we’re doing better in the world than we’ve ever done — and I’m not gonna dispute it, it’s fine — but the fact is that as soon as that match was over we went from a couple of hours of soccer guy, or writer guy who’s really a soccer guy at heart, talking about should we change coaches, tactics, players, or whatever, and then it’s over. I don’t know who won and I don’t care.”

Gottlieb later added that soccer has been “the sport of the future” for his entire life, but added that college basketball is going on right now, and it isn’t on the national sports radar, either.

94WIP afternoon host Jon Marks has revealed he is working without a contract.

A report from CrossingBroad.com claims Marks mentioned the development on the air two weeks ago, and Marks confirmed the news when the outlet asked him for comment.

He did not, however, wish to say much more about the situation. WIP is currently in the midst of changes to its lineup due to the upcoming departure of legendary morning host Angelo Cataldi.

In late October, the station announced the current midday show of Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie would replace Cataldi in the mornings. Longtime morning co-host Al Morganti will remain with the station but will no longer be heard in mornings once DeCamara and Ritchie take over. Anchor Rhea Hughes will stay in the morning timeslot.

The station has yet to name a new midday show to replace DeCamara and Ritchie. Marks is currently teamed with former NFL linebacker Ike Reese from 2:00-6:00 PM. The two were paired together in 2017.

Monday Night Football got off to an energetic start last night, with the usually reserved Joe Buck showcasing an exuberant attitude while discussing the weather and the fact that the calendar has already flipped to December. WFAN morning host Boomer Esiason wondered if there was an ulterior motive to Buck’s raucous start.

In addition to the energy exuded by the Monday Night Football announcer, Buck nearly howeld in excitement as the network showcased Tom Brady’s usual scream of “Let’s F—ing Go!”, by shouting “Yeah! Let’s go! I can’t say one of those words!”

The excitement was noticed by Boomer & Gio update anchor Jerry Recco who played the audio for the show, with Boomer Esiason wondering if Buck was proving a point to someone.

“Maybe somebody told him he was too downcast the previous broadcast,” Esiason wondered. “Maybe he was doing that emphatically because somebody criticized him as flat or something.”
