Asked about a report that authorities have a list of NFL players with ties to the drug case, McCarthy said: "We are not aware of such a list."

Hi Guys;

Do you really think the NFL WOULD know the names on this list? That's funny, the NFL is not a Law Enforcement orhganization. Geez... who writes this stuff?

Mornin' Mel... and morning Dole & packer...

I have a hunch that Sam's client list will become quite public very soon. And I'm fairly certain there will be a name or two we will all know.

Forget about Hurd. Let me know when Marion Barber and Roy Williams are finally caught. Why can't they ever catch the right guys?

Yep... that is my fear.

Unless Deion is on it... I might be forced to crack a smile then.

Reputations are sure to take a 'hit' down the 'line'.

The NFL may not be law enforcement, but apparently they try to keep tabs on players with shady backgrounds, probably more to do with uncovering ties to gambling. The public comments from da Bears seem to indicate holes in the screening processes.

I hope Goodel is on that list.

Why in the world do fans display such disdain for the commissioner? You do know that he is an EMPLOYEE of all 32 franchise owners, right? He can't do anything without his employers' consent. All power he has is given to him by his employer. Essentially, he is a figurehead. Is it possible that your anger is misdirected.

Don't feel ashamed Otis....

It is a well known fact that most cocaine trails lead back to the Cowboys.

"The attorney for Sam Hurd said Friday that his client had never sold drugs to other NFL players."

And do you suppose the attorney also said "My client is innocent of all these charges, and we are looking forward to proving this before a jury," or did he say, "My client bought large amounts of drugs with intent to distribute. Just not to NFL players, only other people with large amounts of money and no brains to speak of."

Once last season ended, his primary job was to get the league and the players to agree on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. It's not like it was a surprise. 10 years ago, we knew the old agreement would expire at the end of the 2010-2011 season. So, if he had been doing his job, all the groundwork would have been laid and the parties could have sat down and hashed out an agreement. Instead, it was a complete CF from day one, the whole draft, free-agency period and pre-season were eff'd up, and we started the season with teams not ready and players out of shape.

And besides that, his mother dresses him funny.

Hurd finally found a way to get his face on SportsCenter.

Debbie Does,
I think both parties put off the negotiations in order to see what "their" position would be at crunch time. Normally in cases like this one sides like to keep the cards "close to the chest" and this forces last minute negotiations.....maybe that was the delay.
