The agent for Logan Mankins has denied reports his client attempted to hold NFL labor negotiations over a barrel with a 10 million cash demand.
This can only mean one thing: it's time for more fake NFL plaintiff demands. Better than watching the back-and-forth reporting on twitter.

Miller has ejected Farrell three times, more than any other umpire.
"No, honestly I didn't even know that, someone's brought to my attention that it's been the third time," Farrell said Sunday when asked if that history played in. "I don't have a tote board of who's done what and how many times
