Quote of the Day

"I didn’t understand the game the way I do now. I didn't understand the agents, the contractual relationship with the salary cap, the importance of the age of players. Now it's easy for me, second nature."

-- Redskins Owner Dan Snyder, on his early years on the job(WASHINGTON TIMES, 4/2).

  • All Apologies

    Is Spygate over? It may be news to Arlen Specter and Matt Walsh, but that seems to be the consensus coming out of the NFL Owners meetings in Palm Beach. And what many are saying ended the controversy are yesterday’s mea culpas by Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick. In a rare and reportedly powerful moment inside the meetings, Kraft apologized to fellow owners and coaches for the episode and all the uproar it caused. In what is being described as an “impassioned and heartfelt speech,'' Kraft “emphasized the kind of respect his family has for the league and the importance of being good partners.” Kraft was followed by Belichick, hardly the most popular person in the room, and both speeches were “met with applause.” The message was clear coming out of the room -- Spygate is done. Even Jets Owner Woody Johnson, whose team the incident occurred against, said of Spygate, “It really has been solved.”
