~Players' Union statement on league punishments for alleged pay-to-injure program:  
"After seeing the NFL's decision letters, the NFLPA has still not received any detailed or specific evidence from the league of these specific players' involvement in an alleged pay-to-injure program. We have made it clear that punishment without evidence is not fair. We have spoken with our players and their epresentatives and we will vigorously protect and pursue all options on their behalf."

Entrenched ideas targeted at Vermont conference to consider lessons of Hurricane Irene~When a river is dredged deeper and confined within walls, it gains more power. During a flood, that increases the river’s power to bulldoze riverbanks, rip out trees and carry a much greater load of rock and toppled trees downstream to jam against bridges and culverts. River scientists have learned that the best way to defuse that destruction is to give the river room to meander across the landscape and to pour out into its floodplain, where water spreads and dissipates its force.
