I think Brady's legal team will argue that under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement, the league had no right to demand the phone records. The league's investigators certainly do not...

Well, I don't know about you, but I'd sure like to see a rumble between the MWC cast and the Full House cast.

So WJLP (RF 3) won't get the Channel 3 slot on most cable systems.
