Former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has told talkSPORT how he’d handle Dimitri Payet’s strike at West Ham – make him rot in the reserves and ruin his career.Hammers boss Slaven Bilic revealed last week that Payet is refusing to play for the club again, with the playmaker thought to be keen on a return to Marseille.However, club bosses have insisted they will NOT sell the wantaway star in the January transfer window, with the club reportedly rejecting a £20million bid from the Ligue 1 club on Monday.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Jordan said, if he was in charge at the London Stadium, he’d use the situation to send a message to the rest of the squad.Although he later admitted selling the Frenchman for the best price this month would be the safest move to avoid a backlash in the dressing room.The ex-Eagles chief said: “If you’d have asked me six years ago my reaction would have been, ‘you’re going over to the reserves or with the academy kids, you’re going to sit there for the next three years and I’ll take your career and flush it’.“And I did that with certain players [at Crystal Palace], and the reason for that would be to send a message to the other players that you don’t follow this route and we mean business.“But the flip side of that is it doesn’t take much for the whispers to start, for the cancer to spread in the dressing room with destructive and divisive players – there’s a balance to be struck.“I think there’s something more going on behind the scenes with Payet, and I would like to see the owners come out and be stronger on this.“I think West Ham are a far bigger club than Payet, they survived a long time before he came and they’ll survive along time after he’s gone, and if it really is as toxic as it seems [they should] get as much money as they can for this fella and move on.“Fans expect certain things from players and loyalty is unrealistic. What you should expect from a player is his very best whilst he’s at the club, not his unadulterated loyalty.”

Joe Ward. Fire officials said a non-injury, 10-acre fire, reported about 3:30 p.m. Monday, briefly threatened homes near the Foothill (210) Freeway and South Lone Hill Avenue before being extinguished in about 40 minutes. No homes were damaged. Buescher is also accused of starting two other fires Monday in Glendora, along with a fire on Aug. 7 near the 210 Freeway, north of the Glendora Dodge dealership, according to the criminal complaint. Earlier this week, police said they suspected Buescher of setting seven fires, but he was only charged with four based on the evidence.

SEATTLE – Five families with children who were shot or traumatized at a Jewish center in the San Fernando Valley in 1999 have filed a $15 million claim against Washington state because the shooter was a Washington parolee. The claim, potentially the precursor for a lawsuit, was filed Friday against the state Department of Corrections, which was then responsible for supervising Buford O. Furrow Jr., an avowed white supremacist with a history of mental illness. Furrow, now 44 and serving a life sentence at the federal prison in Marion, Ill., had been out of prison for three months and was on probation in Washington at the time of the shooting spree on Aug. 10, 1999, at the North Valley Jewish Community Center in Granada Hills. According to the claim, the state agency failed to obtain his psychiatric records and assess his mental health, should have monitored Furrow sufficiently to prevent him from accumulating the weapons he used, and should have given more attention to court records of his close ties to hate groups. Stepakoff said his son needed counseling after being hit by two bullets, one barely missing his spine and the other tearing through his leg. The sound of helicopters, a reminder of the police response, would reduce him to tears. Entering eighth grade, he writes often about the experience for class assignments. A lawsuit filed by victims against the manufacturers of the guns that Furrow used was dismissed last year under legislation passed by Congress to exempt gun makers from liability in firearms-related crimes. The lead plaintiff was Lilian Ileto, the mother of Joseph Ileto, a postal worker whom Furrow fatally shot soon after leaving the Jewish center. Before the shootings, Furrow had served eight months in prison, as well as time in a mental hospital, after he threatened a mental health worker with a knife. He had no prior criminal convictions. He told police he was a white supremacist who had been experiencing homicidal thoughts, but he was classified by prison officials as a moderate risk requiring midlevel supervision when he was released, records show. In the wake of the shootings, then-Corrections Secretary Joseph Lehman said in a department memorandum and in an interview with the CBS television show “60 Minutes” that an internal investigation showed warning signs that should have alerted Furrow’s probation officer, Patrick Gosney. “We were not aware of the extent of Furrow’s involvement with hate groups,” Lehman said. A department report quoted Gosney as saying he knew of Furrow’s white-supremacist orientation but not of Furrow’s involvement with the Aryan Nations or any other specific group. Withey said such evidence was readily at hand. “Not only were there red flags; they were in their own files,” the lawyer said. “It’s like being told that Washington state allows its community corrections officers to be bamboozled by neo-Nazi, gun-toting nuts.” For example, Withey said, one of the mental health workers whom Furrow attacked told a corrections officer for a presentencing report that Furrow’s wallet contained an Aryan Nations membership card and other white-supremacist material.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The state has 60 days to respond before plaintiffs can move to file the case as a lawsuit. Michael E. Withey, a lawyer for the families, said the statute of limitations involving minors in such cases is within three years of when they turn 18. “By filing this claim … we hope to make sure this never happens again,” Withey said.
