NFL Lockout To End This Week?

Could the NFL Lockout finally be ending this week? That's the word according to several media outlets as the new CBA will get ratified on Thursday. ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that a "72-hour window for signing current free agents will open on Friday, only a day after the owners approve the transaction."

NFL Commisioner Roger Goodell is willing to "do whatever it takes" to get this deal done this week so business can resume this weekend.

Another interesting development involves a "global settlement" involving the Brady vs. NFL antitrust lawsuit and the television "lockout insurance" damages case. This would mean these cases would be dropped along with many other issues once the new CBA is ratified, which would last 10 years.

Lawyers are in New York today working on the unresolved issues.

Rupert Murdoch Scandal Getting Uglier

The phone hacking scandal involving Rupert Murdoch's media empire is getting out of control. The former British newspaper chief of Murdoch's News Corp was arrested. And, a police chief resigned yesterday amidst allegations of police bribery.

Could this be the beginning of the end for Rupert Murdoch's empire? With any scandal there is more than meets the eye in the beginning. And, like an onion when more layers are peeled, the more it stinks.

Phillies Defeat the Mets To Take Series

The Phillies defeated the Mets 8-5 yesterday to take the series. Mets pitcher Mike Pelfrey has been terrible lately and was lit up by the Phillies yesterday. The Phillies head to Chicago to take on the Cubs tonight at 8:15. Roy Halladay will be on the hill for the Fightins.
