In last week’s ruling, Nelson said the lockout was doing irreparable harm to the players, who can’t be fully compensated by damages because of their brief careers. Numerous NFL players, including retired Kansas City Chiefs player Priest Holmes and current Chief Mike Vrabel, were among the named plaintiffs in an antitrust lawsuit against the NFL and asked for the preliminary injunction lifting the lockout.
“It’s Showtime!” is a benefit to raise funds to find a cure for Lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease that strikes 1.4 million Americans – including Shimika Kennison, wife of Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Eddie Kennison. The event also includes a retirement celebration saluting Eddie’s 13-year career in the NFL.
“We are so pleased to bring back (the show) after a few years’ hiatus,” Eddie said. “Not only is it fun to watch some of my football friends and local celebrities strut their stuff on the run way and bid on great auction items, but we’re raising funds to find a cure for this awful disease, Lupus.”
The other day ESPN Analyst Trent Dilfer commented on the Kansas City Chiefs’ selection of wide receiver Jonathan Baldwin. Dilfer insinuated that Baldwin was a bad draft choice, stating that he had a source who told him Baldwin is known for “undermining his quarterback and coaches.” Well, I have a source that says he had no problem working with Baldwin and he doesn’t believe Dilfer’s statements to be true. So which source is right? Mine or Dilfer’s?
