Julio Jones trade winners and losers: How Falcons, Titans and several of their key players are impacted
Julio Jones is heading to the AFC schoolyard, the seven-time Pro Bowler potentially elevating the Tennessee Titans to the Kansas City Chiefs' primary threat for conference supremacy.
Meanwhile, Jones' former team, the Atlanta Falcons, officially acknowledged they're effectively entering rebuild mode after agreeing to trade arguably the best player in the history of their franchise – while having to settle for modest (at best) compensation for their trouble.
As with any deal of this magnitude, the fallout is likely to have a significant impact on the NFL landscape. Who stands to benefit most? Who doesn't? Let's dig into the ramifications as Jones moves approximately four hours up the road from Atlanta to Nashville:
Crown faces widening money laundering investigation
The financial crimes watchdog has widened its investigation into casino giant Crown Resorts after uncovering potential breaches of anti-money laundering laws at its Perth resorts.
AUSTRAC revealed in October last year it was formally investigating Crown over “non-compliance” with anti-money laundering laws at its flagship Melbourne casino relating to the due diligence it conducted on high-roller patrons.

Crown said on Monday morning that AUSTRAC had now also identified “potential serious non-compliance” with anti-money laundering laws at its smaller Perth casino.
“As a result, AUSTRAC has initiated a formal enforcement investigation into the compliance of Crown Perth,” the company said in a statement released to the ASX.
The announcement of the first AUSTRAC probe in October triggered an 8 per cent crash in Crown’s share price, wiping $500 million from the company’s value.

Police say 23 arrested during clashes over NYC park curfew
NEW YORK — Twenty-three people were arrested in clashes with police officers enforcing a new 10 p.m. curfew in New York’s Washington Square Park, police said Sunday.
Videos posted on Twitter show a line of helmeted officers moving into the park to enforce the curfew Saturday night. Officers can be seen grabbing and pushing people as an order to disperse is announced.
A police spokesperson said eight officers suffered minor injuries while trying to clear the park. Most of the 23 people arrested were charged with disorderly conduct and given desk appearance tickets, the spokesperson said.
The park in the heart of Greenwich Village has long been a scene of protests and vigils and is a popular gathering place for young people, including students from nearby New York University.
The 10 p.m. curfew was first instituted during Memorial Day weekend after some neighborhood residents complained of late-night noise and drug use. The move was criticized Sunday by multiple Democratic mayoral candidates on social media.
A spokesperson for the city Parks Department said Washington Square Park will close at 10 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights until further notice. The park is open until midnight Monday through Thursday.
“Enforced closures are focused on addressing large after hours gatherings, amplified sound, excessive trashing of the park and other conditions on weekends,” the spokesperson, Crystal Howard, said in an email.
