MY TWO CENTS
1. Look for the league and the players' union to barter early in the off-season over reducing the suspension for banned stimulants-now four games for a first violation. My gut feeling is that the NFL will agree to reduce the unpaid suspension to two games in 2003.
2. The Vikings' Randy Moss, who took himself out of a 24-17 loss to New England late in the fourth quarter and later made no effort to come off the line of scrimmage on the last desperation pass of the day, said he was fatigued from running the no-huddle offense. That's garbage. If you were conditioned, Mr. Moss, you'd be in the game when it really counts—the way a star is supposed to be.
