    That's what happens when you try to lure Saban away from Alabama...

    Jimmy Haslam's brother is Governor of Tennessee. This could get interesting.

    My money is on the Patriots having snuck cameras in to try to get a glimpse into the Browns war room.

    Either that or word slipped that the Browns were actually going to draft Geno Smith at #6 and they are looking for the kind of serious drugs that would cause a team to make this kind of mistake.

    Then the Pats have surveillance in every other NFL front office in the league if they are worried about Cleveland. Shit, they might bug half the CFL before worrying about the Browns.

    Hey the Lions are going to be good this year. And by Lions, I of course mean the B.C. Lions.

    The odd timing of this disclosure -- smack in the middle of the Boston Marathon disaster -- initially had me thinking the guy was somehow involved in that, and that was why the feds were visiting him.

    If the IRS was on the scene, it won't end well.

    Pilot Flying J CEO Jimmy Haslam has reached out to his 30,000 employees, urging them to “believe and trust” that the Knoxville-based company has done no wrong amid an ongoing federal investigation.


    Apparently the FBI and IRS didn't take Haslam's word for it.
