TWEETS:

I apologize if the WMD comment offended anyone. Especially our military. There is no one I respect more than our service men and women

My WMD comment has nothing to do with politics or our brave military. Merely an analogy to show how media influences public perception

Why is it so hard to believe the nfl just may be lying??? Ornstein denies telling NFL that Vilma offered money

Hargrove: 'The NFL got their evidence all wrong' -

NFL spokesman on Anthony Hargrove denying it was his voice on tape: "We stand by our investigation."

fans could use some humor these days. Someone just emailed me this photo under the headline "PROBLEM SOLVED": SATCH NOTE: Is that your Photoshop pic, Dave? MtnExile?

. But Ginsberg's agenda is righteous. I choose him. What's so hard to understand?

Where an I watching the game tonight let's go Miami.....

Still, none of this changes anything. It's a losing battle. Just root for the bad guys this year.

the whodat nation is standing with our D leader. Keep fighting the good fight and the truth will come out. Retweeted by

Mike Ornstein denied offering a $10,000 bounty on Brett Favre, as NFL claimed he did Monday. He also said he did not see Vilma offer any $.

So Ornstein is out. All we have left is GW and some mystery witness.

No bombshells coming from Hargrove, apparently. Just a bunch of bluster, which is about par for the course here lately.

Suspended DT Anthony Hargrove claims the audio released Monday of him saying, "Bobby, give me my money," was not his voice.

"I am a victim of a sophisticated mugging, trust me, you could be mugged next" LMAO (per the Dibert)

Getting ready to go on the set with Leonard Weaver, Chad Brown and Corey Mays

Welp, live tee vee and radio coverage of Hot Hargrove Action sure is robust.

Enjoying some beach time in Del Mar after a great workout!
