for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin ...no more than 100 mg. as it affects how well it works. it's such an important thing to do to help protect against another heart attack. brilinta worked better than plavix. and even reduced the chances of dying from another one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to doctor. since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers. a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery and all medicines you take. i will take brilinta today. tomorrow. and every day for as long as my doctor tells me. don't miss a day of brilinta.

after he was traded from the eagles, mccoy lashed out at chip kelly. he first talked about a lack of communication after the trade to the bills. shady then took allegations against chip to a new level in may. >> former eagles running back lashawn mccoy takes more shots at head coach chip kelly and this time he talks about race. in an interview mccoy was quoted as saying kelly wants the full control. you see how fast he got rid of all the good players, especially all the good black players. >> i've got great respect for la sean. however, in that situation i think he's wrong. we put a lot of time looking at character and retention of player and color has never been won of them. >> his first season in buffalo started slow, missed two of the bills first five games with a hamstring issue but he's averaging nearly 100 yards a game in his last five. last week against houston, you
could tell a return to the linc was already on his mind. this week the feud was pushed back to the forefront. first chip offered to shake lesean's hand, then shady had this response. >> can't shake at all, nothing. he knows this. that's why i said, i know him. he's very intelligence. i can read between the lines. like i said, i have nothing against him new york city hatred. we're not enemies. i won't say anything wrong to him. there's nothing for us to talk about at all. it's as simple as that. >> after that chip on thursday opened up even more about the whole situation when shady was traded. >> my understanding, how he was traded wasn't handled right. i've said that before. i did not get an opportunity to talk to him and it's a lesson,
to be honest with you, we were told the trade wasn't initiated and wouldn't be initiated until the next morning so there were no phone calls to be made. all of a sudden i'm driving to an event to be trade. i called him. he didn't answer my phone calls. i know he was mad. he should be. >> we'll see how it shakes out on you know but if this saga holds true to form, it will be anything other than simple. all right. onto the phillies now. today they closed the deal ken giles trade to astros and turned out better than we thought. phillies now get 2013 number one overall draft pick of the deal, pitcher mark appel considered to be one of astros best projects. phillies wind up with five pitchers in the deal. nice job. congratulations to northwest philly raiders, they have now won back-to-back pop warner super bowl championships. back to you. >> thanks, john. can you expect to see santa on a sleigh but how about a boat. that's what he was riding today.
he arrived at the marina to greet hundreds of children. it was breakfast and crafts and today's event raised money for vest the cops program and raises money for vests. brittney is back with more like baseball than football weather. >> it's so nice. hopefully you have lots of plans. if you didn't get out today another chance tomorrow. record warmth expected again with a high of 70 degrees. anyone going to the eagles game, that's probably the best place to be. that's going to be a lot of fun. rain moves in monday. by tuesday a cold front drops temperatures back down to the sick. we're back to the 40s next weekend. >> oh, my gosh. really drops. >> on the way. >> next week. all right. that's nbc 10 news for now. for brittney, john and all of us here, we'll see you back at 11:00.
