    No chance that he might be lying, is there? (he says, with tongue planted firmly in cheek)

      While watching Merriman yuck it up w/ James Brown (no, not that one) at halftime of the game this morning, in which Brown actually asked him how he felt about "being snubbed" for MVP honors because of drug suspension, the overall tenor of the conversation led me to think that if the NFL really wanted to punish these guys, who make more money than god, that bigger suspensions arent' necessarily the way to go.

      These guys have a lot of pride, and honors mean a lot. Not only should Merriman (or any other suspendee) be formally left off any MVP balloting, he should also be denied the chance to participate in the Pro Bowl or be named to whatever All-Pro team there is.

        That's a pretty big "if" right there.

          It's interesting. Here in San Diego, the "fans" were pretty unmerciful with Bonds, signage, boos, syringe tossed on field. Yet Merriman pretty much gets a pass. Must be the difference between Petco and Qualcom. Or, who's ox is getting gored.
