Friday 02/01 A.M. Quickie:
XLII, NFLPA, Spurs, Wazzu, Duke, More!

Today's Names to Know from today's Sporting News column:

Tom Brady, Tom Petty, Paula Abdul, Ryan Seacrest, Bud Light, FedEx, Gene Upshaw, Jacque Vaughn, Washington State, Wisconsin, Chuck Knoblauch, Johan Santana, David West, Cameron Crazies and More!

Including: Why I'm rooting for the Pats to lose (but picking them to win)... why Tom Petty will rule (but you'll be talking about Paula Abdul on Monday morning)... why Washington State is overrated (but Wisconsin is underrated)... why Chuck Knoblauch may have an "I can't recall" problem... why today is do-or-die for the Mets... why David West is a fantastic All-Star pick (despite the Al Jefferson snub)... and why the Cameron Crazies hate the environment... all after the jump.

Check back later this morning for a full discussion of the Super Bowl (prepare to share your own picks in the Comments), and be sure to check back on both Saturday and Sunday for the usual (Very) Quickies.

Do you have a link about he story that NFL will opt out of the it CBA agreement. I have looked everywhere and I can't find the story.

They the players union and management council) have always said that if they play without a cap they will never being able to go back. This would hurt the small market teams in a big way.
