New Orleans Saints; NFL, NFLPA Statement, McAllister, Reggie Bush
Written by 

NFL lockoutThe NFL and the NFLPA broke on Friday, and it appears they're inching closer to a deal.

The two sides released a joint statement of Friday.

"The discussions this week have been constructive and progress has been made on a wide range of issues. Our legal and financial teams will continue to work throughout this weekend.

"We will continue to respect the confidentially orders of Chief Magistrate Arthur Boylan and will therefore refrain from commenting on specific issues or aspects of the negotiations. We will provide additional information as developments in the process continue," the statement reads.

Only two real issues remain: The settlement details of the litigation, and player safety issues related to the offseason. The fund for retired players is reportedly no longer seen as a stumbling block.

The clock has not run, but somebody please get the GatorAide ready.   

Deuce McAllister

Deuce McAllister's home in Luling is scheduled to be auctioned off by the St,. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office on July 27. Sale of the house originally had been for June.  In the meantime, the two sides have been working toward a settlement. McAllister owes $1.8 million on the mortgage with Whitney National Bank. That figure has been inflated by nearly $1 million because of two years worth of interest and other penalties while the negotiations were ongoing...

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez said Reggie Bush should be allowed to keep 2005 Heisman Trophy. "I don't think anything you can do off the field, if it's not like a performance-enhancing thing, I don't care what anybody gives you, whether you have 10 houses or a free meal at the lunch hall," said the former USC quarterback. "I don't understand how that helps you become head and shoulders the best player maybe in the last decade in college football, maybe longer. "I don't see how that translates onto the field, so I don't know how would give that back."  Bush hasn't returned the Heisman which remains on loan to the San Diego Hall of Champions; is out with "The 50 Most  Annoying People in Sports Today." The top 10: 1. Dick Vitale exclamatory basketball announcer; Alex Rodriguez, Yankees 3B; 3. Brett Favre, retired (maybe)4. Q. LeBron James, Heat star; 5. Joe Buck, sportscaster; 6. Albert Haynesworth, Redskins problem; 7. Jim Rome, shout-about radio and TV host; 8. Chad Ochocinco, Bengals WR; 9. Skip Bayless, ESPN clown; 10. Gene Auriemma, UConn women's basketball coach. ...

Ex LSU pitcher Brian Wilson showed up at the ESPYs the other night in a skin-tight Spandex tuxedo with an orange bow tie. The Giants' relief pitcher also sports the world's most fake-looking real beard a la Charlie Sheen. I feel for Brian Wilson The Original, the Beach Boys founder and creative force...

  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
