Joey Browner, an All-Pro safety who said last week that Mike Lynn, Minnesota Viking general manager, is racially motivated when he negotiates contracts, said Monday that Lynn is a racist and "money don't have nothing to do with it." In an ESPN interview aired Sunday, Browner was asked if he believes his being black is a reason he has not received the $1-million contract he is seeking. "Yes, I believe so, but I don't want to come out and say it because they might use it against me," he said.

Tom Watson probably wishes he could change a few things in his career, but nothing more than his controversial accusation that Gary Player cheated in the 1983 Skins Game. If Watson could do it over again, he would have kept the matter between himself and Player. Watson told Golf magazine that even when he accused Player of improving his lie by removing a growing leaf, he was upset that it became public. Dave Anderson of the New York Times had overheard Watson tell Player he thought he had cheated.

"I couldn't have my own identity at Notre Dame," he said. "I had to have my own shadow." So he went to USC. The Trojan coach at the time was John Robinson, who also happened to be the guy who recruited him.
