McNamee says he'll sue Clemens if Rocket sticks to his story on 60 Mins.

    Could get interesting if the lawsuits start flying. I guess this is kind of like McNamee buzzing Clemens' chin.

    Also interesting that we've never heard the word "lawsuit" mentioned by Clemens or any of his lawyers (unless I missed it). If it all was untrue, I'd be filing a lawsuit the next day.

    One of Clemens' people said something to that effect. Basically "anyone who keeps saying it better have a damn good lawyer."

    Which isn't quite the same thing, is it?

    "We are filing suit" would carry so much more force that what the lawyer said.

    Yeah, that's like a coach who is about to take another job saying "I'm happy to be coaching at Disco Tech." It could very well be an attempt to lead you to believe that they might sue even though they could possibly have no intention of doing so.
     
  6. Damn, I'm sure it's been on here before, but that is the first time I've seen Disco Tech.

    Outstanding

    As my attorney said when I asked him to send someone a threatening letter,

    "I don't believe in threatening to sue."

    The first editor I ever had was pretty terrible but he taught me one great thing -- it's not a story when someone threatens to sue, it's a story when someone files a lawsuit.

    Strangely enough, it never has made the Big Dance. (I actually hate when people call the NCAA tournament that, but I couldn't resist.)

    This sounds like one of those issues where it's nothing more than a war of words to see who has the bigger dick.

    We already know the answer to that question.

    And it isn't the guy renowned for throwing a piece of bat at somebody.
