TV Timeout: Playoffs Paying Off

PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem said of the FedExCup Playoffs, now in their sixth year, "The players are more and more into it, the fans are into it, so that's working really well. And then this year we start our new schedule, so that when we finish the playoffs and the FedExCup is awarded, it also triggers the ballots going out for Player of the Year the players vote on. It also triggers the Arnold Palmer Award, so everything comes to a real end for the first time really in our history of the Tour" ("The Barclays," CBS, 8/25).

FOOT THE BILL? NBCSN's Kyle Martino said new EPL club Fulham Owner Shahid Khan is "spending money and he's doing the right things, he's said the right things." Martino: "From the moment he came in he understands the culture and is making big signings. You talk about Arsenal, you talk about some other London rivals that aren't spending money, and Shahid Khan's come in and let this team go acquire some players that can make a big difference" ("Premier League Live," NBCSN, 8/24).

A CLOSE SHAVE? Boston Globe columnist Bob Ryan: “Is Brian Wilson enough a man of principle to resist a million-dollar offer to shave his beard and then be a spokesman for 800Razors.com? We shall see” (“The Sports Reporters,” ESPN, 8/25).
