New Panthers QB: Vinny Testaverde.

The "X" factor you guys aren't considering when discussing which "fossil" to dig up out of retirememt is the fact that most of these guys were once high-priced starters with a number of years in the NFL under their belt. With that "experience" also brings a league minimum salary to the teams that choose to "unearth" all of that, er, talent. So, most teams (other than those totally desperate, ie. the Panthers) aren't willing to absorb the overinflated price tag on their salary cap.

Urlacher fined $100,000 for Super Bowl hat

$100,000 seems like a bunch of money to most of us...but to these multi-million dollar athletes, that is chump change. That would be like most of us getting slapped with a $100 fine...not that much when you put it in perspective.

Fox fires Steve Lyons for racially insensitive comment

Okay, this is the network that airs programs such as "Hell's Kitchen," "The Simpsons," "House," "King of the Hill" (just to name a few)...NOW they are worried about "sensitivity" and "offending others"?! Sounds like a double standard to me.
