PK says Ozzie Newsome "feels good about his (Ray's) side of the story". Other reports say quite the opposite. He's also quoted as saying that the video of Rice dragging his fiance "doesn't look good".

This is one of those situations where I'm hard-pressed to see a positive light or any kind of plausible explanation.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the NFL pass a rule after Gruden went to the Bucs that teams couldn't trade draft picks for coaches? And if so, wouldn't that completely debunk the Harvaugh non-story, not that it really needed it?

Herm Edwards got traded to the Chiefs a few years later.

Am I the only one who is opposed to the new "n***** rule", for lack of a better term, on the basis that I don't want referees in charge of something like that? Am I also the only one who gets upset enough about phantom calls on allegedly objective and allegedly visible infractions who thinks this is just going to be more black-box officiating?

'I have no idea of WHOM to match with where'
and no idea of English grammar either
