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...

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
