The Brewers Get To Keep Ryan Braun's $3.4 Million

Wow, The NFL Actually Fined A Player For Faking An Injury

Steeler And Raven Unite In Hating On Roger Goodell, Owing Him Money

Steelers and Ravens have few things in common other than a strong desire to hit each other very hard, and not have to pay out of pocket to do so. These can be conflicting desires in a league that glorifies AFC North smashmouth football, yet doles out fines to show they're concerned about player safety. So Ray Lewis is… » 11/09/11 3:10pm 11/09/11 3:10pm
