“In the discussion that we had, Malcolm conveyed to us — based on discussions that he had with the NFL — that the money would come from funds that are already allocated to breast cancer awareness and Salute to Service,” Reid told Slate.com Thursday. “So it would really be no skin off the owners’ backs: They would just move the money from those programs to this one.”
“I mean, it’s part of the game,” Lue said. “Everyone goes through it, and Tristan is a big part of what we do, so we got to figure out how we got to use him, we got to do that so I have a plan in place and we’ll see how it works.”

Fair or unfair, Ryan Leaf embodies the “bust” label. Drafted second-fiddle to Peyton Manning in 1998, Leaf took the opposite trajectory and suffered for the constant comparison. In just 21 games and 18 starts as a Charger, Leaf had a record of 4-14, tossing 13 touchdowns to 33 interceptions. And to make matters worse, Leaf wasn’t even a likeable loser.
