Gregg Easterbrook makes the case this week that rookie holdouts might be penny wise but pound foolish. The thinking is that if a player like Phillip Rivers had reported to camp on time last year, he might have been given the Chargers' starting job immediately and ended up making more money in the long run as a starter than he will now that he's going into his second season as a backup.
TMQ also notes that Buffalo Bills cheerleaders are not permitted to have pierced tongues. That's an important piece of information you won't get elsewhere.
