You keep waiting for someone to press the point, asking someone like Johnnie Cochran to defend Denver linebacker Bill Romanowski in a Saturday night 11th-hour commitment hearing, a la "Miracle on 34th Street." The guy appears deranged, acts deranged--it's all there on videotape week after week--and if you're playing for the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl XXXIII, you probably want to go home after the game with your head still attached.

San Diego strong safety Rodney Harrison is not happy that he was fined $10,000 for leveling Kansas City receiver Andre Rison while Denver linebacker Bill Romanowski was fined $7,500 for spitting in the face of San Francisco receiver J.J. Stokes. "It's ridiculous," Harrison said Friday. "If you can be fined $10,000 for hitting somebody, and then you let a guy get away with spitting in someone's face . . .

Former NFL receiver Cris Carter says he put "bounties" on opposing players when he played in the league. Carter made the admission Tuesday night on "Hill and Schlereth," a show on ESPN Radio. "I put bounties on guys," Carter said. "If a guy tries to take me out, a guy takes a cheap shot on me? I put a bounty on him right now!" Carter said the big difference between what he did and what the New Orleans Saints did in their bounty system is that Carter didn't want opponents injured.
