Everything You Need To Know About The Return Of The NFL – Levack Rant [AUDIO]
Before I talk business, this pic is from a great moment yesterday. Colts Center Jeff Saturday Said some of the nicest things I've ever heard about Patriot's owner Robert Kraft. Saturday said Kraft was "a man who helped us save football," and to Kraft's wife, Myra, who died Wednesday from cancer.
"A special thanks to Myra Kraft, who even in her weakest moment allowed Mr. Kraft to come and fight this out," Saturday said. "Without him, this deal does not get done." It's times like these that I find new respect for men who put their differences aside to respect each other.
