Eagles Fans Optimistic About Lockout's End

Wednesday, April 13, 2011, 4:26 PM
The NFL draft starts two weeks from tomorrow, as strange as that seems in a league where players aren't allowed to speak to their coaches or show up at the team facility to work out. The only NFL news being made outside courtrooms and judge's chambers these days is the weird kind. You probably saw... Read more

Not Feeling Draft: Will Lockout Cage Eagles?

Tuesday, April 12, 2011, 1:07 PM
With nobody outside Judge Susan Nelson's chambers knowing when or whether there might be NFL free agency this year, the focus across the league sits more squarely on the draft than anytime in recent memory.

Catching up on Eagles, NFL lockout

Monday, April 4, 2011, 12:58 PM
Back from a week in furlough limbo, which is not unlike being locked out, except that unlike Eagles players, I was not barred from my workout facility, Royal Fitness in Barrington, N.J. I just didn't get there much because I'm old and lazy. I figured going into the week that nothing would happen on... Read more

Eagles president Joe Banner spoke at Temple University last week during the School of Tourism and Hospitality Management’s ongoing Executive in Residence program. Banner met with 250 students, talking about his unsual path to a high-profile position in the NFL, the labor negotiations, his managerial... Read more

Nightclub Still Waiting For LeSean To Return The Money

Friday, April 1, 2011, 10:10 AM
When we last left Eagles running back LeSean McCoy and his brother LeRon, they were assuring us that the $2,500 advance he got for an appearance he failed to show up for in northeastern Pennsylvania on March 11 was ``ready to be returned.’’ Even though this sounded a lot like the popular...
