    very much appreciate it if the if Carolina called today and offered Cam Newton I would take him no heartbeat. Heartbeat. In fact to wake up Sunday. And read quarter upstart that Tyler daughter John Vogel whoever did the you know all the bells or ornate the season than they went forward four and they could have been a position to draft Cam Newton . Was not a good way to start the Super Bowl Sunday it's never OK to lose. No I was not a good way to start Super Bowl Sunday to remind me that the bills could've gotten Cam Newton .

    press conference and doesn't talk much I it's either a genius sorts Cam Newton it's either spell checker Newton and you know which which. Houdini guy after me after a loss Bill Belichick wouldn't shake our
    question about Pittsburgh's pass rush quote on so. But god is saying Peyton Manning has sold out his offensive line yes and the quote is from Manning. I'm trying to be good teammate here let's just say we had some problems in protection. I'll give Pittsburgh credit for the blitzes in the rush those guys rush but we we had some protection problems and then. I Don T writes that Jeff Saturday fast stopped to having some protection problems and then writes. Like could Manning say something similar about these two for six start in the first quarter sell if Cam Newton had said. Well you know on the Internet at ten should drop or should stop dropping the ball into the other team's
    The players on the team I don't think. Will think less of Cam Newton because he didn't answer the reporters' questions the way we want audience. That's the hole when it comes down to whether or

    defense they get any I gave him it would be I think Cam Newton played. As well as you could really. I shouldn't say as well as you have some bad throws he's he also threw
    he was great but I'm not put much of that loss on Cam Newton . Pressured a career high by the way 21 times yeah knocked down. And every time Carolina blitz Manning I kept thinking why

    But Terrell Owens did not make the whole thing. He will make the whole thing he's going Euro in heat and so he's not a first ballot guy and I wondered if he'd be kept out by a strong class or the be kept out on people don't like it. My people that like Terrell Owens . An ethic he's kept out by people didn't like him Marvin Harrison goes in Kevin Greene goes and of the class is a strong class. Well at a pace landed a pretty good Brett Favre I was surprised dungy went in there really was Brett I think I would not have been in a rush to put Tony Dungy in the hall media. It's all about you to people like you people love to have love love Tony Dungy . People don't like Terrell Owens so how do you keep Terrell Owens are hall of fame without saying well it's because people that like. Mathieu you have the quote from Bill Polian. Yes while
    show. But without that Carriker the show is not the same lines Terrell Owens belongs in forest player on the field and I know off the field sometimes is bad but it's the kind of thing

But I think mention there were developments over the weekend with the NHL we want to bring in Eric macro ballot Eric is a sports attorney and Ottawa we had a mother show a few weeks ago I thought he did a great job. Of taken what can be a really confusing issue and making it easy for people like me to understand. Late persons and I need him to help us out again Erica tower and sell high you don't Garrett at. So here's here's my question again without with no legal expertise by head -- the gonna explode -- -- -- with the NHL PA voting on the disclaimer of interest. With the NHL filing a lawsuit. Does any of this it does it mean it's easier or tougher to try to resolve the CBA get hockey this season. -- an article on TS and dot CA it'll last night and it's up and I ask myself that exact same question and the answer is. Definitely be yes no and -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Here here here is that located at the -- -- a -- a lot of new York and I was saying about a month ago that. If I'm the NHL -- file a lawsuit yesterday I do it in new York and I do it first that's for -- that because Intel wants to secure. A -- my -- home court advantage there -- New York. A judge in York is more likely to side would bend in the players say judging California then the the players will dissolve their team disclaim interest maybe they'll file lawsuit. Right now I don't see talks. Being accelerated toward settlement however once the players at the players to dissolve the about a lawsuit. Then conventional wisdom would suggest. That the better chance to this thing getting -- in the short term you look at the NBA. The NBA locked out players. They filed a lawsuit in August went against the players and then the players expenditures are -- November 14. Twelve days later after the filed a lawsuit twelve days later. The NBA the players agreed to a new CBA so in theory it can help but here's the thing guys I'm saying this politely. These BBA talks have been filled with surprises -- So the only certainty here's really uncertainty we don't know how things are gonna unfold but lawsuits if the introduction of antitrust litigation. That should apply pressure on the sides. To get this done. So delete files a lawsuit the players vote on disclaimer of interest of the lawsuit stop the disclaimer of interest process from going through. No it it doesn't -- NHL's filed a lawsuit. It's actually in anticipation. Of the NH LP disclaim interest to work better terms just dissolving itself. PD the NH LP will blow itself up or dissolve itself because you want -- the players' reluctance to important person -- person that's for. Is had a lock out declared illegal and the reason a block of illegals because you know of the position as you have the thirty RCA charge competitors. And competitors can't get together and decide to do something you know they can't fix the marketplace blocked out is one of those price fixing -- -- -- -- -- that you can't do. And anticipation of that the NHL father a lot less conjecture as they look. Please rubber stamp the lock out -- it's legal even before they blow themselves up that's why the NHL. Arnold and -- if you file a disclaimer of interest and basically. As you explain it to -- the NH -- the NHL PA that's means the NHL PA is walking away from the players. That's right at the -- of interest. Is one dollar -- -- -- that is NHL PA tenth NHL PA letterhead or writes letter to Gary Bettman -- -- -- NHL PH had decertification the other term. It on the players walk away from the union and that's kind of a more robust process evolved like really former hole. What's called -- decertification election that it takes a lot longer to about 4560 days. But a disclaimer of interest to -- the NFL PA did and the MBTA did they do it because it's almost instant. I don't support this letter this morning and the afternoon. The NB HL players nor has filed a lawsuit in a place like California whose primary interest is different decertification. But both of them have the same net result you blow up the union. And you start soon. Why would they allow. The disclaimer to go through if clearly once this thing is settled the union will reform. And that's precisely would get killed are going to call this sham argument. That they were the only reason. The NHL PA is disclaim interest is to extract leverage in the negotiations and second they get what they want. Just gonna read former reconstitute the union I think a look at disclaimer of interest the very serious thing you know. Dissolving a union as -- something that you do lately -- very dramatic move edit it shouldn't be done. Just to gain leverage in negotiations. If that's the motivation. And that's bad faith bargaining and you know what guys bats with bargaining under US labor law is unlawful so that's in Intel positioned its attempt. I'm at a closed -- by circling back to the top what you told me yes no or maybe. It does this mean they'll get do you think. There was no contact over the weekend there are no talks scheduled at this point do you think. At the very least -- change the questions at the very least does that mean the two sides will start talking again this week. I think this side will start talking -- getting personality entail PA's move. That is to disclaim interest and file a lawsuit with the NBA players did. Once that's done this guy's gonna start talking answered talking seriously once again look if you told me to be no hockey by American Thanksgiving we -- -- discussions ever. Probably shaking hands and clapping for good measure I mean look guys that are obvious there is a compromise here at the fact that decide to start playing hockey is. Bizarre to put it -- so it's still how does -- profile for settlement and a profile for settlement in the short term. So logic would suggest. This is going to get -- in the short term but the problem is logic. And been on vacation. So there are shield all right Erik as always thanks for clearing up everything up force -- and thanks again for coming ominous to the problem red sticker.

Does the Broncos win make you feel the Bills are closer or farther away from the Super Bowl?
  They're closer. Just fix the defense. Their offense is better than Denver's.
  They're farther away. We don't have an elite D(Denver) or franchise QB(Carolina)
