  • Stern gloomy about NBA talks

    By Brian Mahoney

    NEW YORK  — David Stern returned to the bargaining table Monday and said “nothing” gave him reason for encouragement.

    So the first meeting to include leadership from owners and players since the lockout began exactly a month ago produced nothing new — except blame.

    MANKATO, Minn. — Randy Moss dominated when he wanted to dominate.

    LATROBE, Pa.  — James Harrison is an emotional guy. Always has been. The Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker plays with an intensity few in the NFL can match.

    Yet the four-time Pro Bowler knows that fury has its limits, and Friday he admitted he blew right past them in a magazine article earlier this month in which he used an anti-gay slur when talking about commissioner Roger Goodell and criticized teammates for their play in Pittsburgh’s Super Bowl loss to Green Bay.
