The Detroit Lions spent decades searching for a franchise quarterback to build their team around. Now that they think they have one, the last thing they want to do is let him go.

Matthew Stafford agreed to a three-year contract extension that will keep him in Detroit through 2017 and make him — for the second time in his short career — one of the highest-paid players in the NFL.

Stafford’s new deal is worth $76 million over five years, including $43 million guaranteed. It gives the team some downside protection and him a chance at a third mega-deal while he’s still in the prime of his career, a person with knowledge of the negotiations told USA TODAY Sports.

The person spoke on the condition on anonymity since the team had yet to announce the deal.

Stafford, 25, was scheduled to make $12.5 million this season and carry a $20.8 million cap charge.

He owns team single-season records for passing yards, touchdown passes, completions and attempts, and he likely will break Bobby Layne’s career passing mark this fall.

He has thrown for a combined 10,005 yards the last two years and joined Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Dan Marino as the only quarterbacks to top 5,000 yards in a single season.

Stafford said several times this offseason that he hoped to remain a Lion for the balance of his career, and the Lions have no problem handing over their second mega-deal in the past 16 months to a player who has overcome early injury woes to take a prime leadership role in the locker room.

Limited to a combined 13 games his first two seasons because of knee and shoulder injuries, Stafford has started every game the last two years and led the Lions to the playoffs in 2011.

After the Lions missed the postseason and his production waned in 2012 — he threw 21 fewer touchdown passes and completed 59.8% of his passes — Stafford spent the offseason in Detroit.

“He’s evolved into a leader,” Lions President Tom Lewand said last month. “Now when rookies walk into the locker room they see a quarterback who’s been here four years and they see a different guy who occupies a different spot on the team and a lot of that is because of his own efforts.

“I don’t think we have a guy on our roster who’s worked harder than he has, and I’m not sure that you’ll find a guy who cares more than he does about this team and about winning, and about his teammates.”

The No. 1 overall pick out of Georgia in 2009, Stafford would be the fifth quarterback to sign a contract extension this offseason.

The Baltimore Ravens’ Joe Flacco got $51 million guaranteed on a $120 million deal a month after winning the Super Bowl; the Dallas Cowboys’ Tony Romo got $55 million guaranteed on a seven-year, $119 million deal April 1; and the Green Bay Packers’Aaron Rodgers got $54 million guaranteed on a $130 million deal four weeks later. Brady added three years and $27 million to his contract with the New England Patriots while getting $30 million upfront.

The Atlanta Falcons’ Matt Ryan also is expected to sign a new deal before the start of the season.

Stafford, who made $50.5 million in his first four seasons, Romo and Ryan are epresented by Creative Artists Agency, and Stafford’s deal should give the Lions cap flexibility going forward.

With Stafford and Calvin Johnson, who signed an eight-year, $131 million deal in March 2012, under contract, the Lions can shift their focus to defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

Suh’s rookie deal voids after the 2014 season, and his cap charge next year of $21.4 million makes it unlikely the Lions could use the franchise tag to retain him. Tagging Suh for one year would cost the Lions $25.7 million.

Suh said in late May he was “two years away from even considering” an extension but that he’d “love to be here in Detroit.”

A couple weeks later, Stafford insisted that his contract wouldn’t be a distraction this year, regardless of whether it got done or not.

“I don’t play this game to get contracts,” Stafford said at the time. “I play this game to win games and that’s the way I’ve always felt about it.”

Stafford, however, regressed in nearly every statistical category in his fourth NFL season after throwing for 5,038 yards and 41 touchdowns in 2011.

The Lions also could use cap room after renegotiations with Stafford the past two offseasons pushed his cap numbers to $20.82 million in 2013 and $19.32 million in 2014. The Lions entered Tuesday $1.895 million under their adjusted cap for 2013.

Stafford received an $8.475 million bonus to sign the first renegotiation in August 2011 and a $10.885 million bonus to sign the other in March 2012, drastically lowering his cap number for the coming season each time. The last non-voidable year under Stafford’s old deal was 2014.

It’s the second lucrative contract extension finalized in as many days by Stafford’s agent, Tom Condon, who got wide receiver Victor Cruz’s long-awaited deal done with the New York Giants on Monday. Next up likely is Ryan, who is entering the last year of his rookie deal.

Jayden Irving

July 06, 2013           8:16PM

A VICTORIAN surfer survived 25 days locked in a notorious Democratic Republic of the Congo prison after a travelling adventure went horribly wrong.

It took an extraordinary diplomatic effort by three nations – and the help of his mother – to make sure Jayden Irving made it safely home.

The 22 year-old from Carrum Downs feared he would die in a cell harbouring mass murderers, warlords and the central African regime’s political enemies.

A relatively innocuous issue with his visa turned into a string of bizarre accusations that the lifesaver was plotting to bomb the president or even interfere with the country’s fibre-optic cable network.

The first Mr Irving’s parents knew of his plight was when he bribed a guard to send a distressing text message.

“Hey mum its your son,” he wrote. “im in jail again cos congo doesn’t like me, But this time it can be much more than 5 days.”

His only contact with the outside world was an Australian diplomat from our embassy in Harare, Zimbabwe.

She brought him food and lobbied for his release.

How Mr Irving came to the attention of the DRC’s notorious intelligence unit, Agence Nationale de Renseignements, was a mixture of bad luck and poor timing.

His story begins early last year when he hatched a plan to hitchhike along the west coast of Africa, finding and surfing the region’s remote beaches.

Friends were aghast that he would want to travel through Africa’s most troubled and war-torn countries.

“I tried to coax a bunch of different friends along with me but they were all like, ‘You are an idiot, it’s dangerous, you are going to die’,” Mr Irving said.

The free spirit set off for South Africa alone in February last year. There, at a hostel near the surfing mecca of Jefferys Bay, he convinced local Lydon Alves to join him.

On their seven-month journey the pair managed to talk and charm their way into areas where most white foreigners are forbidden.

Then they reached the troubled Democratic Republic of the Congo, Africa’s second-largest country with a population of 75 million. The former Zaire was torn apart by civil war from 1998-2007 and saw five million people killed.

There is still violent dissent and high crime rates. The Australian Government advises against all travel.

The two surfers travelled like locals, spending three days on the back of an overcrowded truck with their surfboards and then weeks wading through thick jungle to reach the DRC’s tiny strip of seafront on Africa’s west coast.

They met about “three white people”.

“We were roughing it big time – Westerners back to a Third World standard of living,” Mr Irving said.

When they finally reached the DRC beaches in early September last year they set up camp in Muanda.

Unwittingly, they were very near the beach house of President Joseph Kabila.

The DRC was preparing for a high-level meeting of Francophile leaders and security services were on high alert. The presence of two white men quickly drew the attention of authorities.

“The three white people we had met were all businessmen. So us two ruffians were assumed to be mercenaries,” Mr Irving said.

The pair were soon confronted at their beachside camp by men brandishing AK47s, beating them and screaming in French for them to get in a car. The gunmen – from immigration – refused to show ID and the surfers feared being driven off and executed.

Mr Irving refused to get in the car, casually offering bribes to his interrogators. But this was rebuffed.

“When they didn’t want money we really thought we were in trouble,” Mr Irving said.

“Every customs official that comes to us wanted money. It was called the ‘African handshake’.

“That’s all I thought these guys wanted.”

The local police responded to the commotion and convinced the travellers the officials were legitimate.

It was this run-in and claims of visa irregularities that Mr Irving thinks caused of the wild claims of terrorism to be eventually levelled at them.

At first, the surfers were treated as immigration detainees, transferred from police cell to police cell and back to immigration detention in the capital, Kinshasa.

But Mr Irving was not fed for the first two days. With his strength wavering he knew he needed to take drastic action, so he faked a seizure in his cell, forcing guards to provide him with medical attention and a meal of beans and rice.

Twice Mr Irving came close to freedom. On both occasions he was released from the detention centre and boarded a boat to cross the river to Brazzaville, in the neighbouring Republic of the Congo, and each time the boat was recalled and he was arrested again.

It was after that he managed to get word to his parents. And that text message began mum Carole’s ordeal. She immediately contacted DFAT and set diplomatic wheels in motion.

“I would go into work and people would ask me why

I was so calm,” she said.

“I wasn’t calm though.

“I would see a photo of Jayden and think, ‘My God, I am never going to see my son again’.

“I wanted to get on a plane and say, ‘Give me back my son’.”

Back in the DRC, Mr Irving was blindfolded, handcuffed and led by armed guards to the National Intelligence Agency headquarters.

There he was grilled on his travels and eventually shown a picture of a bomb he was alleged to have had at his camp site, but which had been planted.

He was then taken to the intelligence unit’s jail.

“The cell was 25 sweaty people in 40C heat walking back and forward, a guy half dead in the corner, and one meal a day,” Mr Irving said.

“Occasionally someone would start screaming for no reason. At night you would hear the chanting and prayers of men who are praying that God will kill them because they can’t stand the cell anymore.”

He was then shifted to a smaller cell where he was treated as a “VIP” with rebel leaders, mass murderers and rapists. It was also a cell from which many prisoners vanished.

“We accepted we would never leave that country or that cell. People don’t come back from there,” he said.

The savvy traveller had luckily stashed money in his belongings and bribed guards to bring it to him.

“With money I could get extra food from the other prisoners or $US50 would get me the use of a phone.”

Any extra supplies he received from the diplomat would be shared among his cellmates to curry favour.

Unbeknown to Mr Irving, the Aussie diplomat had developed a contact who had the ear of the DRC’s interior minister.

The political pressure brought to bear by the Australian, Canadian and South Africans to help Mr Irving and Mr Alves are revealed in a string of diplomatic cables seen by the Sunday Herald Sun.

Mr Irving’s plight even reached the ears of then-PM Julia Gillard and Foreign Affairs Minister Bob Carr.

Canada took up Mr Irving’s cause because Australia does not have an embassy in the DRC. The Canadian ambassador and the Australian diplomat attended meetings with DRC officials.

The Canadians gently reminded the DRC that the country’s human rights record would be in the spotlight during the French-speaking summit.

The Australian diplomat even tactfully discussed the Australian Government’s aid program before pointedly raising the case of Mr Irving.

In a cable to Canberra, the diplomat outlined her meetings with a DRC official five days before Mr Irving and his mate were released.

“I kept the focus on our bilateral relationship (assistance to the humanitarian crisis via the International Red Cross, scholarships etc),” the cable reads.

“At the end of the meeting, I outlined the case and he agreed that it was something that should be dealt with quickly and said he would brief the minister.

“This matter is now being taken seriously by the people who have the ability to push for it to be resolved,” it read.

It was this lobbying and an ultimatum from the South African embassy that the pair be released or charged that eventually secured their freedom.

“I owe my life to anyone involved in the process,” Mr Irving said.

“But mostly to my friend (Lydon) who kept my sanity in jail and my mum for calling in the diplomats.”

The pair were released on October 5 into the custody of the South African embassy, and put on a plane to Johannesburg.

But it wasn’t until he was on his way back to Australia that Jayden and his parents felt he was safe.

Mrs Irving said it was only once he was in her arms that the emotional weight was finally lifted.

“I ran at him and hugged him, squeezed him so tight he could barely breath,” she said.

“Then I whacked him and told him never to put me through that again.”

Jayden Irving appears on The Mole , on the Seven Network, on Tuesday and Wednesday at 7.30pm and on Thursday at 8pm.

GTY barack obama aviwe mtongana jt 130630 33x16 608 Obama Advises Young Rapper to Drop The Mic

June 30, 2013               3:09pm

President Obama was treated to an impromptu rap performance today as he toured a classroom at Desmond Tutu’s HIV Foundation Youth Center.

“This is a pretty cool place to be,” the president said, before sitting down and asking two boys what they were working on.

A teenage boy in a hat then showed the president a music program he was working on. “Are you a rapper?” Obama asked.

When the boy said he was, the president asked him to perform for him.

The two “loosened up” before the boy, 15-year-old Aviwe Mtongana, aka “Katmeister,” performed his song, entitled “Hell on Earth.”

“Hell you earth, what people gonna do… on TV, you watching Scooby Doo… saying the punch line, he’s not cool,” he sang, through a thick accent. “Now you face the hardest living… Getting out there is not pimping… The real way is through rapping.”

When the song ended, Obama exclaimed “you gotta drop the mic!” as he motioned for him to do just that.

“I like that. Fantastic,” Obama said, as the boy sat back down.

Asked what it was like to rap for the president, Katmeister told reporters it was “cool.”

When the first pension funds were set up back in the 17th century, they were supposed to provide a livelihood for the widows of clergymen and teachers. By the 19th century, pensions offered income security to retired people, to make sure they didn’t run out of money. When seen through that lens, the exorbitant $159 million pension owed to John Hammergren, 54, CEO of McKesson MCK +4.37%, the nation’s largest drug distributor, seems utterly absurd.

“Hammergren has pulled down hundreds of millions in compensation,” notes Jesse Fried, a Harvard LawSchool professor who specializes in executive compensation. “Even without the pension, it would be very hard for him to spend all his money before he died.” Indeed, Hammergren has appeared more than once at the top of lists of America’s highest-paid CEOs. On the last list Forbes compiled, in April 2012, he rated No. 1, with a package worth $131 million, including $6.3 million in salary and bonus, and $112 million from the exercise of vested stock options. Hammergren was way ahead of the next-highest-paid CEO, billionaire Ralph Lauren, who made $67 million.

Yesterday The Wall Street Journal’s Mark Maremont published a piece that dug through various McKesson filings, including its most recent proxy statement, and calculated Hammergren’s huge pension entitlement, should he have retired this spring.

As Maremont lays out, McKesson recruited Hammergren to a senior job back in 1996 and promoted him to co-CEO in 1999 after a scandal involving HBOC, an accounting firm McKesson had acquired. The scandal drove McKesson’s share price down and led to the ouster of top executives. Hammergren became sole CEO in 2001. Since he took over, the stock price has more than tripled. Revenue for the fiscal year that ended March 31 came to $123 billion. So you can see why the board would want to reward him for his performance.

In an emailed statement, a spokesman for San Francisco-based McKesson underlines the company’s strong performance since Hammergren took over and says that his pension terms were put in place “more than 14 years ago.” It says his contract was “modeled on his predecessor’s agreement,” and that “changes in Mr. Hammergren’s pension value year-over-year are primarily a function of changes in actuarial interest rate assumptions; they do not reflect actual compensation received.”

But according to four compensation specialists I talked to, Hammergren’s pension package is an outlier at the highest end and, as Maremont reports, almost certainly the largest ever in corporate America. The only one that comes close was the controversial $126 million lump sum pension benefit owed to Richard Grasso, the former chairman of the New York Stock Exchange. But Grasso’s compensation package became embroiled in extensive litigation.

According to data compiled by Columbia LawSchool professor Robert Jackson, who studies executive compensation, the largest-ever pension benefit paid to a top executive since the SEC started mandating disclosure of these figures in 2006, was $101 million to Joel Germunder of nursing home drug provider Omnicare, who stepped down in 2010 at age 71.

Fabrizio Ferri, a Columbia Business School professor who tracks executive pay, pulled some information for me from ExecuComp, a data set used by academics. According to those numbers, Hammergren has by far the largest pension package, although ExecuComp doesn’t count all the pots of money Maremont calculates, and puts Hammergren’s pension take at $115 million. Using the same type of calculation, the CEO with the second-highest present-value pension is News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch, whose pension is worth $73.8 million. While it’s ridiculous to suggest that Murdoch, who is a billionaire, needs a pension to support himself, he has been CEO of News Corp. for 60 years and arguably has earned some retirement funds. The executive with the third-highest current pension benefit: Bernard Duroc-Danner of Geneva, Switzerland-based Weatherford International, an oil field products and services firm. His current retirement package is worth $71 million.

Fried, Ferri and Forbes contributor Paul Hodgson, a corporate governance consultant with BHJ Partners, all say that Hammergren’s pension is a relic of the time before 2007 when the SEC had weak pension disclosure requirements, so most shareholders and even most board members were in the dark about executives’ compensation deals. “The firm would provide some details but you’d need an actuary to find out what the value was,” says Hodgson. After 2007 the process became much more transparent, and many firms stopped loading compensation into executives’ pension plans.

Compensation specialist Hodgson points out that many new companies, especially tech firms like Microsoft, Google and Amazon, don’t give their executives pensions at all, consistent with the savings plans for workers, which take the form of 401Ks. Meantime, older, blue chip companies are still holding onto pension plans for their top executives. The Journal cites a 2012 study by research firm GMI Ratings, showing that 60% of CEOs at S&P 500 firms still have pensions, with an average value of $11.5 million. (Ferri’s numbers from CompuStat show a lower meann number of $5 million.)

In light of all that, Hammergren’s fat package remains striking. The Journal’s analysis shows several unusual things about his arrangement: the company is giving him credit for extra years worked and pay that he didn’t receive, and waiving an early retirement penalty should he step down now, at age 54.

One more interesting note about Hammergren’s tenure at McKesson: He may have brought the firm through the HBOC accounting scandal but McKesson has been sued for inflating prescription drug prices and other misdeeds involving drugs. It reportedly paid more than $190 million to settle claims that it inflated the prices of various prescription drugs between 2001 and 2005, and then a jury ruled in October 2011 that McKesson should pay a $17.9 million penalty for its responsibility when colonoscopy patients allegedly contracted hepatitis because McKesson, along with Baxter International, distributed reusable vials of an anesthetic.

It has also been reported that Hammergren would be entitled to a whopping $469 million if he were let go because of a change in control of the company.

What happens if Hammergren passes away unexpectedly or becomes disabled? According to the most recent proxy statement, he or his heirs get $260 million.

RICHARD Matheson, the prolific science-fiction and fantasy writer whose I Am Legend and The Shrinking Man were transformed into films, has died. He was 87.

A spokesman for the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films says Matheson died on Sunday in Los Angeles.

Several of Matheson’s works were adapted into movies, including Hell House and What Dreams May Come.

Matheson was also responsible for writing several episodes of the TV show The Twilight Zone. His instalments included Nightmare at 20,000 Feet, which featured William Shatner as an aeroplane passenger who spots a gremlin on the plane’s wing.

Matheson’s science-fiction vampire novel I Am Legend inspired three film adaptations: 1964’s The Last Man on Earth, 1971’s Omega Man and 2007’s I Am Legend starring Will Smith.

June 13, 2013              6:39 AM MT

A Banff, Alta., man came within metres of being caught by a wolf, but luckily he was on his motorcycle during the close call on Highway 93.

He was also able to snap some photos of the chase.

Tim Bartlett was testing out his new bike in Kootenay National Park on Saturday when he almost hit a wolf.

He swerved and sped away, but then headed back with his camera.

By the time he got back to the area where he saw the wolf, it had jumped over a concrete barrier. He thought it was gone.

“But as soon as I got to where that was, it jumped back, and the chase was on,” said Bartlett.

The wolf crossed a lane of traffic while attempting to catch up to him.

“It sort of sped up initially; it gave a real good burst of speed,” said Bartlett. “And then after that it just trotted along beside me, but it probably got within three or four metres.”

Bartlett said he once had a border collie that used to chase bikes, and this kind of felt like the same thing.

The wolf kept up with him for about a kilometre, while Bartlett snapped some pictures. He eventually sped off — going roughly 100 metres down the highway — before coming to a stop.

The wolf had stopped in the middle of the road before heading back into the nearby forest.

The wolf got within metres of Tim Bartlett's motorcycle during the weekend chase.

Wolf chases are rare, Parks Canada says

Bartlett said he wasn’t trying to provoke the animal, but was happy with the outcome.

“I got six really good shots and … the one that came in nice and close, he had his ears pinned right back and he was in full gallop,” he said. “It looked really cool.”

Bartlett said it’s an incredible experience he will never forget.

It’s also “not normal behaviour,” said Michelle Macullo of Parks Canada.

She said it’s rare to even see a wolf, never mind to be chased by one.

“It’s likely that this animal is habituated, so what that means is this animal has lost some of its natural fear of humans… so it’s definitely cause for concern for us,” she said.

The area has attracted wolves in the past because people were feeding them. Officials issued an alert last year when pictures of a wolf being fed rice cakes surfaced.

“If people see animals roadside and if they are… being aggressive or doing things like pursuing folks, we need for people to call us because the more information we have, and the sooner they call, the sooner we can go and investigate,” said Macullo.

Bartlett reported the incident to authorities.
