CALGARY -- A former Canadian Football League all-star completed his spectacular fall from grace Friday when he was sentenced to 90 days in jail for assaulting his one-time girlfriend. Nike Air Max Flair Bianche . Joffrey Reynolds, 33, will serve his time on weekends and faces two years of probation once he has completed his sentence. He was found guilty earlier this year of assault causing bodily harm, common assault and unlawfully being in a dwelling after trying to choke and smother his former girlfriend when she came home and found him in her bed in July 2012. Crown prosecutor Hyatt Mograbee had asked that Reynolds be given two to three years in prison. Reynoldss defence lawyer told court that his client had already lost his reputation and career and shouldnt have to spend time behind bars. "He stands before you today contrite, respectful of this court and remorseful for what happened," said Bjorn Harsanji. "This was a person who was an MVP a few years ago and then he was released. He has lost a lot. His public reputation is gone. I think the message is out. Theres a general deterrence that no one is above the law. "Mr. Reynolds is certainly not above the law." Reynolds is from Texas and played college football at the University of Houston. He played eight years for the Calgary Stampeders and was the teams all-time leading rusher with 9,213 yards. He was named a CFL all-star four times and won a Grey Cup championship with the Stampeders in 2008 before his release in 2012. Since his conviction, he has been working on a construction site. Kaitlin Ward, 27, had dated Reynolds for six years before ending their relationship in December 2011 upon discovering he had been cheating on her. Ward testified at the trial that she and Reynolds were trying to determine if they could "salvage" their relationship when she allowed him to stay with her for a couple of days after his house went into foreclosure. Ward testified she told Reynolds at a party that he had to get out. She said Reynolds got angry and kicked her in the back of the leg and was waiting for her later when she got home. "I was shocked," she said. "I went by the front door to shoo him out. Thats when he kind of tackled me." Ward said Reynolds was sitting on top of her. "Hes smothering my mouth and choking me. Shoving his chin into my neck," she said. "I was gasping for air at that point." Justice Brian Stevenson imposed strict curfews on Reynolds, told him he cannot drink alcohol and ordered him to undergo counselling if required. He also ordered Reynolds to write a letter of apology to Ward and to donate $5,000 to the Calgary Womens Emergency Shelter. The Crown read a victim impact statement on behalf of Ward who said even a year later she remains fearful. "I still think about the crime when entering my home alone at night and Im still scared," she said in the statement. "I was very worried after he was found guilty, and not sentenced immediately, that he would attack me again. This is a person who has an extreme temper that (he) cant control and this was not his first time assaulting me." Reynoldss lawyer said it was "highly likely" that his client would be removed from Canada and sent home to the United States once his sentence is complete. Nike Epic React Flyknit . Thousands of fans at Mosaic Stadium will be cozying up to each other in an effort to stay warm in chilly temperatures and block the Prairie wind that locals say can knock your socks off. Nike Air More Uptempo 96 . The (11-11-4) Jets are seventh in the Central Division with 26 points. Fifth place Dallas and sixth-seeded Nashville also have 26 points, but the Stars have three games in hand on Winnipeg while Nashville has two. http://www.nikeoffwhite.it/nike-air-max-97.html . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over .What are the three things you most want to see at the 2016 Cheltenham Festival? I was asked that question at the excellent Sky Bet Preview in Leeds last week.My rather selfish response was as follows:- 1. Racing is currently blessed with a collection of brilliant commentators. They have a number of sitting ducks to whip the Cheltenham crowd in to a frenzy next week. Just imagine the roar as the horses freewheel down the hill in the Champion Hurdle if the commentator exclaims Ruby Walsh is taking dead aim on Annie Power.The place will erupt. I hope the commentator gets the chance with Min in the Sky Bet Supreme to shout Ruby hasnt moved a muscle. That is bound to garner a spine tingling roar. There are plenty of other public favourites like Sprinter Sacre and Cue Card that will get the crowd going. Commentators following the story and whipping the racegoers in to a frenzy is all part of the Cheltenham magic. I cant wait. Alex Hammond is joined by Ed Chamberlin to look ahead to an exciting week of racing at the Cheltenham festival 2. I need Gordon Elliott to have a big week. Noble Endeavor, No More Heroes and Cause Of Causes are major fancies and he seems to have well handicapped horses in every handicap. Elliott has a chance to be a top trainer at a big price but looks a good thing in the market without Willie Mullins3. My mum will probably watch one race next week. Not the best Gold Cup for a generation but the race that follows; the Foxhunter. The Victoria Pendleton story sums up racing. Plenty of those within the sport seem to resent it yet those outside of racing love the story.I love the fact that racing will be on the front and back pages of the newspapers on Friday and Saturday. Its a terrific story and a fantastic achievement to be there so lets hope she gets round safe and sound.

Moved from John Quinn to Rebecca Curtis following an extended break, showing vague promise in a couple of novice chases in October, before getting his act together in a Cheptow handicap off 130.The form of that race stands up well, even in the context of a Festival handicap, and despite racing off a 9lb higher mark on Tuesday, he is still a big eyecatcher at the weights. Punters have to forgive him a dismal effort at Warwick last month, when he was struggling a long way from the finish. Take advantage of Sky Bets non-runner no bet (hes got an entry in the Kim Muir, too) and I can see him running a big race for Curtis, who won this race last year.ARDAMIRFred Winter (only back on the day if the going is no worse than good to soft)The way the Fred Winter is framed, you are always going to hear plenty of whispers flying around for the majority of the runners. At Sky Bets Preview evening at Leeds Town Hall on Wednesday evening I was happy to hear Denis ORegan raving about mmy fancy, Ardamir, who is reckoned to be not far off the best juveniles in the Alan King yard. Air Max 95 Neon. Soft ground will hurt his chances (hence the proviso), in fact, they shouldnt even bother wasting a run on him if conditions are not good to soft or better, as hell struggle to see out the trip on the track. He left earlier form well behind at Doncaster last time, comfortably beating Our Thomas, and that form has a solid look to it in a race that contains a lot more questions than answers. Ed Chamberlin gives us his pick for Tuesdays racing at the Cheltenham festival NEW TO THIS TOWNWeatherbys Champion BumperJessica Harrington is not a fan of throwing arrers at the Champion Bumper, in the hope of hitting the bullseye. She won the race with Cork All Star nine years ago and her runners since have been sparse, to say the least. Its a strong tip in itself that New To This Town is making the journey to Cheltenham and when you throw his strong bumper form into the mix, I dont think there is a better double-figure priced runner across the four days. I liked the promise he showed on his Thurles debut in December but I loved his game when defeating a warm one in the shape of Avenir DUne Vie at Gowran Park at the end of January. The runner-up might be the best bumper horse in the Mullins stable, and if that is the case, New To This Town wins.CUP FINALPertemps Network FinalJP McManus has a load of chances in this competitive handicap. Leave At Dawn has been all the rage and you can see why, looking at his connections. However, hes a weak finisher over this trip (his brother runs on fumes in the closing stages of his races over three miles) and I am giving him a swerve. Cup Final is a lightly-raced seven-year-old of Nicky Hendersons and although his mark is creeping up (139) I believe he is more of a 150 horse and his breeding entitles him to another 10lb on top, being by Presenting out of that classy mare, Asian Maze. I thought he was impressive beating a solid yardstick at Musselburgh last month and he can start delivering on his early promise by winning one of the most competitive handicaps of the week. Plenty will have 7lb+ up their sleeeves, this lad might have a good bit more.THREE MUSKETEERSJLT Novices ChaseDan Skelton will be keen to get a Festival winner on his CV and if he is going to have a winner next week, Three Musketeers is one of his better chances. I like the market confidence behind him of late and I can see him proving his rubbish run in the Grade 2 Dipper Chase to be all wrong. Skeltons horses were not in great form at the turn of the year and hes had plenty of time to get the show back on the road with this impressive-looking six-year-old. I keep going back to his run at Newbury on his second chase start, when he blew away some good horses and if he can jump and travel with the same sort of verve in the JLT, he might be the answer at 14-1. The JLT is on Thursday and while he would get away with good to soft, he probably wouldnt want it any faster than that. Also See: Bet now at Cheltenham!
