Legal Brief

Willie Gary, a backup player for the St. Louis Rams in 2001 whose pro football career ended when he was cut by the Scottish Claymores the next spring, has filed a $100 million lawsuit against the New England Patriots, and I assume, the NFL, for the Pats' alleged taping of the Rams' walkthrough practice the day before Super Bowl XXXVI.

This will come to nothing of course, and it shouldn't, but in one respect, that's a pity. Football historians would be very glad to get Mike Martz under oath about that game.

"Your honor, the defense calls a surprise witness, Mr. Marshall Faulk. At least he'll come as a surprise to Coach Martz."
