Nate Newton, the Dallas Cowboys' all-pro offensive guard, was named in a sexual-assault complaint filed by a woman who said she was attacked at her home in a Dallas suburb in June, authorities said. Newton has not been charged with any crime, and his attorney, Howard Shapiro of Plano, Texas, said his client had a relationship with the woman and that she later asked the attorney and the Cowboys for money to not report the alleged incident.

Nate Newton made us laugh. The more the old Cowboy lineman went on about how fat he was, the more we laughed. If William Perry, that moving blob of Bear meat, had been "The Refrigerator," it was right that Newton, the taller of the two men, should be "The Kitchen." At the 1993 Super Bowl, Newton made everyone laugh by reminding us of what it was, exactly, that made him rich, famous and worthy of quotation: "Fat's in, steroids are out."

Weight. Nate Newton shook his head. Weight. Weight. Weight. Nate Fat This. Nate Fat That. "Big joke," the 325-pound Dallas Cowboy said. "Big funny joke. I show up. They say, 'Here he is, the answer to the Fridge.' They don't say how Nate did in practice. They don't say how Nate did in the game. They say Nate Fat This. They say Nate Fat That. They say, 'What you weigh today, Nate?' They say, 'Oh, look, there's Nate, hitchin' up his pants to keep 'em up.'

After an exhaustive search of every strip joint in the area, including repeated trips to the Million Dollar Saloon--the most logical place to locate Michael Irvin--he could not be found. Duty-bound, of course, the search will continue. But for now--barring any last-minute "Hard Copy" fuzzy-film revelations showing a puff of smoke and Barry Switzer standing on that grassy knoll 34 years ago--it can be reported only that the Cowboys' Operation Image Make-Over appears to be genuine.

The Dallas Cowboys were dealt the first setback of Super Bowl week Monday when their quarterback acknowledged that he can't use the NFC championship victory as inspiration. Because Troy Aikman doesn't remember it. Doesn't remember completing 14 of 18 passes. Doesn't remember throwing for two touchdowns. Doesn't remember leading the Cowboys to a 38-21 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.
