Quote of the Day

"Championships bring in the peripheral fan. In order to grow a fan base, you need to have those championship opportunities to introduce -- or maybe reintroduce -- your sport to casual fans. That’s the impact for the NHL."
-- Z Sports & Entertainment Exec VP & Managing Dir Scott Becher, on the Rangers-Kings Stanley Cup Final. (TORONTO STAR, 6/3)

    Marino would have been the highest-profile former player to sue the NFL

    Pro Football HOFer Dan Marino intends to "withdraw from a lawsuit against the NFL for concussions" that was filed in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia, according to Dave Hyde of the South Florida SUN-SENTINEL. The move comes less than a day after reports had Marino joining 14 other former players "to sue the league." A source said, "It was never Marino's intention to initiate litigation in this case, but to ensure that in the event he had adverse health consequences down the road, he would be covered with health benefits." Hyde reports Marino and his attorneys are "attempting to discover how Marino's name was joined to the lawsuit."
