Judge Orders Suspects in Linesman Killing Detained
AMSTERDAM -- A Dutch judge has ordered three young footballers suspected of involvement in the fatal beating of a volunteer linesman to be detained for two weeks while investigations continue.
The youths, two aged 15 and the other 16, were arraigned at a behind-closed-doors hearing on Thursday on suspicion of manslaughter, assault and public violence.
Linesman Richard Nieuwenhuizen died on Monday, a day after he was punched and kicked in the head by players following a match in Almere just outside Amsterdam involving youth teams from clubs Buitenboys and Nieuw Sloten.
Nieuwenhuizen's death after officiating a match his son played in triggered a wave of public grief and soul-searching in the football-mad Netherlands.

No Answers: Labor Talks Break Off Again
NEW YORK -- Talks in the NHL labor fight broke down after just one hour Thursday night, and it isn't known when the league and the players' association would get back together.
After several hours of waiting for discussions to resume for a third straight day, the conversations didn't go well and had none of the momentum that existed Tuesday and Wednesday.
NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly left the site of the negotiations and headed to the league's office.
The union held internal discussions most of the day, while keeping in contact with the NHL, and the sides finally reconvened around 5 p.m.
Players' association executive director Donald Fehr was expected to address reporters to give an update. Fehr rejoined the negotiations Thursday after sitting out the previous two days. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman stayed out for the third consecutive day.
Viking Clarifies 'Super-Duper Drunk' Comment
MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Vikings' season will be on the line Sunday against the Chicago Bears. As such, linebacker Chad Greenway has asked fans to get "super-duper drunk" in order to boost the Vikings' home-field advantage at the Metrodome.
"We have to play accordingly and our fans have to show up accordingly, which we know they will. Hopefully, they're super-duper drunk. ... So drink liquor, not beer," he said after Minnesota's loss to Green Bay last Sunday, according to the Star Tribune.
On Thursday, Greenway tried to clarify his comments. "Obviously, I could have used some more responsible words," Greenway said. "I think the people that know me, the beat writers included, know that I said that sort of tongue-in-cheek.
"I just wanted the fans at home to be loud like they always are. I think just trying to drive that point home I probably got a little loose with my words. Obviously, I should have been a little more responsible with it."
Greenway, who leads the NFL with 123 tackles, said he drew from his college experience in making the comments.
"I played football at the University of Iowa and all I knew was that they started drinking at about 5 o'clock at those games for tailgating so I thought it would be OK to say it," Greenway said Thursday. "Obviously I just went a little far."
