According to Larry Brooks, the players’ union is getting ready to bring an offer to the league. I don’t really understand the offer. It doesn’t seem like a cap, though. It seems more like a luxury tax, but I have no idea. They better figure something out, though. Because of the lockout, they can’t even afford to turn on the heat in Pittsburgh’s Mellon Arena. That’s cold, dude.
And you have to love Ron Artest and the Pistons-Pacers brawl. It’s made the idiotic antics of bonehead athletes seem downright quaint instead of deranged. Dan Sullivan from the ECHL’s Reading Royals mooned some fans after they started giving him some business. He was suspended, fined, and probably fired by the Royals. It’s just nice when fans aren’t attacked.
