There is really nothing more to say. If you have not heard about the latest doom and gloom story of the lockout this week, just know that it comes from an unusual place. It is getting a lot of play, but, uh… well, you’ll see. In the meantime, ya gotta get down on Friday!
Labor rhetoric: FUN FUN FUN FUN
Boston columnist hears the scuttlebutt… That’s pretty much the best term I can use for it. Longtime Boston writer Ron Borges gives us our latest apocalypse prophecy, setting the scene with something he overheard from whom he thinks to be NFL lawyer Bob Batterman. Where did Borges overhear Batterman say we’re in for a “long battle?” Well, while he was taking a crap of course! Not doubting Borges’ reporting… but… yeah. Remember, there can be a long court battle while football continues, hinging on a Minnesota court ruling on April 6. In other words, it’s still not time to lose your $#!+ over what a guy heard in the commode.

McGahee has become expendable now that Ray Rice has emerged as one of the best backs in football.
Ravens expected to cut Willis McGahee … after the back had spent the last four seasons in Baltimore. With McGahee playing a smaller role compared to starter RB Ray Rice, it really doesn’t make much sense to keep the eight-year veteran around when he’s due to make $6 million in 2011. McGahee, 29, played in 15 games last season, rushing just 100 times for 380 yards and 5 TDs. His last 1000-yard season (1207 in 2007) came a year before the Ravens drafted Rice and McGahee hasn’t topped 170 carries since Rice joined the team. We expect McGahee to look for a team that will give him a more even split in carries since he still has something left in the tank.
