Another week, another Morning Fix. By all accounts in NFL lockout could come to an end this week. The owners and players are expected to meet in mediation for the next two days. Presumably they will wrap things up by the time they break on Tuesday because the owners plan to meet on Thursday to hopefully vote on a deal.
Until then, here is your Morning Fix!
There’s a league-wide belief that players improve the most from their first season to their second. For a team like the Chiefs – a team that saw such measurable success with its rookies and will lean heavily on second-year players this season – coming out of a work stoppage can be a bit scary.
There’s no denying the positive buzz surrounding the latest in labor talks. Soon, it seems that One Arrowhead’s parking lot will be a little more crowded. Lockers that have gone untouched for an entire off-season might just regain that bit of personality.
Clark Hunt should be happy today. In the American Century Celebrity Championship in Lake Tahoe over the weekend, Todd Haley and Matt Cassel were no threats to first place. There were 83 players in the field and Cassel finished at No. 76 with a minus-49 score. They use the Stableford scoring format at Tahoe. Par equals one point, a birdie is worth three points and an eagle counts for six points. A bogie provides no pounds and a double-bogie or above is minus two points.
