What Would Main Stream Media Do? Well, here is what they did. Each item is followed by a MIF (Most Interesting Fact) from the article.

  • The Mercury News is reporting, "Don Nelson, after winning his $6.3M Mark Cuban mediation: 'It’s like a pimple on his behind' "
          MIF: Don Nelson, who sued Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban for back pay, said, "This was strictly financial. This was just receiving what I’ve already earned and been owed for a long time. He just wanted to make life difficult for me. It’s like a pimple on his behind. But it was a big number for me." It's nice to see Cuban (the man who wants to own all sports teams so he can show how cool he is while attending the games in a t-shirt) get his. He is the mother of all Diva owners. Okay, maybe Jerry Jones is first.

  • The Tennessean reports: "Titans cut receiver (Wide receiver Mike) Williams"
          MIF: Tennessee Titans running back LenDale White, who was a teammate of wide receiver Mike Williams at USC, "No disrespect to Mike Williams, I love Mike Williams, but he is going to have show people that he is really serious about playing football. Unfortunately, they might be talking about him like Ryan Leaf as one of the worst draft decisions." Ouch. With friends like that ...

  • The Associated Press reports, "Chiefs' young owner on steep learning curve: Chiefs owner Clark Hunt is taking notes and soaking up all the football knowledge he can."
          MIF: Hunts says, "The amount of information you can learn is almost open-ended. And I'm not planning on learning the offensive or defensive playbook. That doesn't really serve any purpose. It's more evaluating the people who are putting those plans together."

  • The Detriot Free Press reports "Rich Rodriguez's first payment to WVU is in; one of WVU's lawyers was Ohio State grad."
          MIF:"The Free Press has learned that of the three-person team from the law firm that handled the case for West Virginia, two, including Flaherty, were West Virginia alums. The third, Jaclyn Bryk, is an Ohio State law grad. 'The fact that I was an OSU alumni, a secondary matter to be sure, made this case even more appealing for me,' Bryk said in a released statement." Nice.

  • It's early, folks. Hope to have more to come.
