We usually just close the Peyton suites off in February and do some routine maintenance on the Manning beds to ensure complete and quick folding the following January, for our customers' satisfaction of course.

The Brady suites are quite popular here in the hot Vegas desert climate.
They're always cool, always neat, clean and attractive, and the players who stay in them are all winners.

Report: Williams tests positive for fourth timeESPN.com news services


Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams has violated the NFL's substance abuse policy for a fourth time and is facing a one-year suspension for the positive drug test, Denver television station KDVR reported on Sunday.

The Miami Herald, citing two sources of its own, confirmed the station's report that Williams had failed the test, but neither media outlet would say which substance Williams used. The Herald also said a league source would not confirm the report.


Williams has tested positive for marijuana three times and served a four-game suspension when he returned to the NFL last season following a one-year retirement.


Dolphins coach Nick Saban told ESPN he was not aware of the report and would not comment, citing the confidential nature of the league's substance-abuse policy.


Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene declined to comment when reached by the Herald on Sunday night.


"Because of the confidential nature of the league's substance abuse policy, we can't comment on any aspect of that program," Greene told the newspaper.


Williams was also fined the equivalent of four weeks' salary after his second and third violations of the NFL policy, in December 2003 and the 2004 offseason.


Williams abruptly retired from the NFL in July 2004 and the Dolphins fell apart, losing their first six games and finishing 4-12 -- their worst season since the 1960s.


At the time of his return, Williams was ordered to pay the Dolphins $8.6 million for breaching his contract, although there has been no financial resolution between him and the team. He was scheduled to be paid the league minimum of $540,000 last season, but was docked four games' pay due to his league-mandated suspension and was fined another four games in pay, reducing his take to $285,882.


Williams' base salaries for the two coming seasons are $545,000 and $670,000, the minimum for a player (he entered the league in 1999) of his NFL tenure.



Motivated partly by the need for a paycheck, he accepted Saban's offer to return for the 2005 season. When he reported at the start of training camp, Williams publicly apologized for the impact caused by his retirement and teammates unanimously embraced his return.


The Dolphins finished the 2005 season 9-7, winning their last six games. Williams gained 743 yards and scored six touchdowns.


Williams won the Heisman Trophy, the Maxwell Award, the Walter Camp Award and the Doak Walker Award his senior season at Texas, in 1998. The New Orleans Saints picked him in the first round of the 1999 NFL draft, trading away their entire draft to get him.


In six seasons with New Orleans and Miami, Williams has 7,097 yards on 1,757 carries -- four yards per carry -- and 47 rushing touchdowns His best season was in 2002 with Miami, when he gained 1,853 yards in 383 carries and ran for 16 TDs.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.




Kids just say no!!


What a moron

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady went from the operating table to the golf course, participating in the Toyota Dan Marino Celebrity Invitational tournament in Miami yesterday.

''I just had surgery last week, so I'm just trying to take it easy a little bit on the hard swings," Brady told reporters in Miami.

Brady didn't play in the NFL's Pro Bowl Feb. 12, in part because of what sources said was a groin injury. He's been busy on the links, however, playing in Michael Jordan's celebrity tournament in January, then in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am in the days leading up to the Pro Bowl.

The Marino tournament was held at the LaGorce Country Club in Miami Beach. Patriots linebacker Larry Izzo was also part of the celebrity contingent, along with quarterbacks Peyton Manning, John Elway, and Jim Kelly.

Brady was also on hand at the Super Bowl in Detroit, where he conducted the opening coin flip. At that time, he said, ''A lot of guys played with pain throughout the year, so I don't think that affected at all the way I played or performed. It was just something you deal with."

He still wouldn't have played in the Pro Bowl I bet. Celebrity golf tournaments are much better...

any mention of Brady's arrogance and poor sportsmanship being a reason why MJ picked him?

Did Peyton partner with Sam Bowie?
did Darko Milicic and Ryan Leaf round out the foursome?

not for nothing, darko has looked good so far in limited minutes for orlando. detroit just may have given up on him a tad too early, but alas... that's for the NBA thread.

it appears as if the hype surrounding vince young is disapating, and some have him as the third best QB on the board, behind leinart and cutler.

It's rumored Vince Young got a 6 on his Wonderlic test.

That is incredibly bad.

Here is a link to 15 sample questions from a Wonderlic test: http://espn.go.com/page2/s/closer/020228test.html

Espn had a 3rd grader do the 15 sample questions, and he got 5 of them right. A full Wonderlic test has 50 questions.

So, Vince Young, a college student, got 6 out of 50 questions right.

A third grader got 5 out of 15 right.
