Former Oakland Raiders coach Lane Kiffin filed a grievance with the NFL on Wednesday to claim the lost salary he maintains he is still owed by the team. Kiffin was fired late last month because of what owner Al Davis described as acts of insubordination and lying. Kiffin was still owed about $2.6 million from the three-year contract that he signed in January 2007, but Davis has refused to pay. Commissioner Roger Goodell will ultimately rule on the grievance, but there was no date for a hearing scheduled.

Atlanta Braves General Manager Frank Wren said Sunday he had no comment on a report Tom Glavine may file a grievance against the team after his release on Wednesday. FoxSports.com reported Saturday that Glavine's agent, Gregg Clifton, is exploring filing a grievance. Glavine said Friday he believes he was released for financial reasons and to clear a roster spot for Tommy Hanson, who made his major league debut Sunday against the Milwaukee Brewers. Wren, team Chairman Terry McGuirk and President John Schuerholz said Glavine was released because they did not believe the 43-year-old left-hander would make a successful return from surgery on his elbow and shoulder.

Keith Hernandez of the New York Mets, one of seven players handed conditional drug suspensions by Commissioner Peter Ueberroth, says that one way or the other, he'll be playing on opening day. Backing off an earlier remark that he definitely would file a grievance of the penalty, Hernandez said Tuesday that he had not yet made up his mind. "I feel like I'm being rushed," said Hernandez, the Met first baseman who batted .309 with 91 RBIs last season. "I don't want to be rushed."

Major League Baseball players are threatening to file a collusion grievance charging owners with conspiring against free agents last winter. "We have concerns about the operation of the post-2009 free agent market," new union head Michael Weiner said Tuesday in an interview with the Associated Press. "We have been investigating that market. Our investigation is far along but not yet complete." The sides reached a standstill agreement last year giving the union additional time to decide whether to proceed with a grievance against teams alleging misconduct after the 2008 season.

The Angels will never be in a World Series as long as Mike Port is general manager. Port is filing a grievance because the Yankees were willing to offer Roberto Kelly, a 25-year-old .300 hitter who will steal 40 bases, instead of a 38-year-old fading star coming off back surgery. Instead of filing a grievance, Port should have taken the deal. RICHARD SIMON, Ventura
