Pan Shiyi

The property tycoon found himself facing calls for investigation after posting price-sensitive information on his weibo microblog - before it became available to the markets. Pan has more than 13 million followers on the microblog, but it has been the subject of a 3,000-word complaint to the mainland regulator and the Hong Kong stock exchange from 20 investors claiming that his comments affected the share prices of companies he wrote about.


Chau Chi-wing

The Now TV reporter found himself the victim of an attack by supporters of Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying during a march on Sunday. Chau's glasses were pulled off in the scuffle with Beijing loyalists, who accuse the local media of bias, while cameraman Lau Ka-wo was punched in the face.


Andy Reid

The longest-serving head coach in Philadelphia Eagles' history saw his tenure end - along with seven other NFL coaches - on "Black Monday". Reid's departure after 14 years and one Superbowl appearance was expected following a second losing season. A bigger surprise was the ousting of Chicago's Lovie Smith after the Bears narrowly missed the play-offs.
