    Very sensational, but no teeth. I am still not quite sure what the offense is, other than a dismissed employee.

    Well, if you read further, it looks like a former disgruntled employee has an ax to grind.

    Not that anything is IMpossible, but why only McNair, not other owners? Does he have some 'insider union link' that other owners wouldn't? :confused:

    There was damning video evidence of contact drills during OTAs, too.

    And what happened with that situation?

    This will go away.
