Fan Fantasies: NBA - instead of players fouling out, adopt the NHL power play - four-on-five basketball, two minute penalties. NFL - four-point field goals from 57 yards and out. MLB - Let batters decide if they want to run to first or third base.

Kansas City here I come: The Patriots have traded away recently franchise-tagged backup quarterback Matt Cassel to the Chiefs. Former Pats offensive coordinator and recently hired Broncos Head Coach Josh McDaniels offered Pro-Bowl quarterback Jay Cutler in an attempt to get Cassel. Now from Denver, Cutler is pissed and demanding to be traded. Clearly, McDaniels doesn't buy into the rankings. HilarityDrama ensues.
