The Miami Dolphins are pushing the pause button on a planned meeting with tackle Jonathan Martin. At the behest of Ted Wells, who is conducting an independent investigation of the alleged bullying situation involving Miami guard Richie Incognito and Martin, the Dolphins have agreed to postpone the meeting team owner Stephen Ross was planning to have Wednesday with Martin. “Out of deference to the process, we will cooperate with their request,” the Dolphins said in a written statement.

USFL owners, angered and confused in the wake of a federal court jury's award of just $3 in damages from the NFL, will have to stand together when they meet today or the league could fold. Commissioner Harry Usher, whose league sought $1.69 billion in an antitrust action against the NFL, says he envisions owners taking one of three courses of action. They could cease operations, suspend them for one season or begin their fourth year of play--first in the traditional fall season.

Former USC football Coach Pete Carroll said he expects NFL owners to sit up and take notice of the sale of the Dodgers for $2 billion, noting that it should tell them something about the value of the Los Angeles market. "Oh, man, they've got to love that," said Carroll, now coach of the Seattle Seahawks, during the NFC coaches' breakfast at the annual league meetings. "That's a new day. That's a big marker. That's not just something-point-something, it's $2 billion. That's a big number.

Tony Sparano stared into space stone-faced, tapping his foot and chomping on gum. Miami Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland also wore a somber expression, his cheeks turning red as awkward details were discussed. Team owner Stephen Ross sat between them, sweat glistening above his upper lip while he tried to put lipstick on a pig of a week for the Dolphins.

What a depressing, dispiriting week in the NFL. The Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin situation is an embarrassment to the Miami Dolphins and the NFL, and gets worse with each hour that someone of authority doesn't step up and condemn those hateful, despicable voice and text messages. A quick review: After an apparent emotional breakdown, Martin, a second-year tackle, walked away from the team and his starting job. Incognito, a veteran guard, is believed to have harassed him with ugly messages that were threatening and bigoted.

Though flawed by instances of club-owner collusion, the free-agent market has been good for baseball, a University of Illinois law professor observed recently. His research suggests, Stephen Ross said, that since 1976, free agency has furthered competitive balance in both leagues, spreading around some of the better ballplayers and enabling more teams to contend for pennants.

A delicious, well-crafted Pinot Noir from former Edna Valley Vineyard winemaker Stephen Ross Dooley, issued under his own label. It's a fine buy--deeply colored, tasting of blackberries and plums, with an appealing rustic character--so stock up on enough to take you through a summer's worth of informal meals. (On the other hand, though it's already interesting to drink, it should improve with age.) Dooley makes a couple of other Pinots that are even better, but in shorter supply.
