Moss to agents: "Get me what I deserve"

Randy Moss, emphatically denying he's near quitting, has a very simple directive for his next agent. What does Moss want? ... "I just want somebody who can be out there hungry and starving to make this money off the field. Get me what I deserve as far as my marketability." Anything else? "What it boils down to, I just need somebody that will go out there and get that off-the-field money, man," Moss said. "And I'm still playing at a high level, still being that No. 1 receiver in the league, still playing at a top level, I think that my marketability is still there for me. I don't want to pass that up." (Boston Herald)Comment

Phil Jackson takes aim at KG

A new series, a new tip from Phil Jackson on what officials should watch. In a question related to the teams' toughness, Jackson acknowledged the contrast between the Lakers' and Celtics' physical makeups, saying, "We don't have a smackdown mentality." He then riffed on Boston forward Kevin Garnett for what Jackson perceived as playing a little too rough against Orlando center Dwight Howard in the Celtics' six-game East finals victory over the Magic. "He was smacking Howard's arm and finally he was called for an offensive foul," Jackson said of Garnett. "That's not our team. We don't go out there and smack people around."

International sponsor for Meadowlands?

A tepid marketing climate may leave the new Meadowlands without a corporate sponsor for 2010, but Jets and Giants owners aren't in any rush -- though they are talking to international companies. The teams have reasons to be impatient. There are fears of a second recession, so waiting for a deal may mean leaving money on the table. The earlier a sponsor signs up, the longer it can tie its image to a stadium. How long do teams want to let the name new Meadowlands burn into fans' brains? The pool of naming rights buyers at the highest-priced level is smaller than it was before the recession. Those now in talks can exert more leverage than suitors could before the economy's near-death experience. (The New York Times)Comment
