    A source close to Brandon Roy has confirmed that he's been diagnosed with a career-ending knee condition and will retire.

    <p id="yui_3_4_1_1_1323463398986_562">Fourth-round pick <span class="ysp-player">Casey Matthews</span>
    has struggled in his first season in Philadelphia, not living up to the
    lofty expectations his surname carries. While his brother Clay stars in
    Green Bay and his uncle Bruce has a bust in Canton, Casey has played
    mainly on special teams throughout the Eagles' disappointing 2011
    campaign.</p>



    Recently, that led to his hometown fans taunting his fiancee.He told Philly.com's Les Bowen that she was with her aunt and young cousin:</p>
    <p style="padding-left:30px;">"They harassed [them] and made my fiancee
    cry. It's tough. It's frustrating. That's just how they are here. If you
    win they love you, so I guess we've just got to turn things around and
    just start winning again."</p>
    Matthews should be upset. Heckling a family wearing the jersey of a
    player is low, even for Philadelphia. But part of me thinks some of this
    is on Matthews.

    Demps is “disconsolate” over the heavy-handed move from the
    commissioner’s office, a source told Y! Sports. Demps considered
    resigning his job on Thursday, league sources said, and had to be talked
    out of it. The Hornets had scored a terrific deal for Paul, a trade
    that was lauded by some of Demps’ peers throughout the league. Officials
    involved in the trade talks said the league office was consulted
    throughout the negotiations, and there was never an indication Demps
    didn’t have the power to make a deal. In fact, several teams negotiating
    with New Orleans to get Paul asked the league office and were told
    Demps had full authority to execute a trade.

    As one rival executive with strong ties to the league office said,
    “Stern cared about two things: selling that franchise for the best
    possible price and showing the players that they weren’t going to
    dictate where teams could trade them. But now, there’s no way that the
    league can allow Chris Paul to be traded at all; otherwise, Stern is
    basically deciding where one of the top players in the league is going
    versus having any fair process.”“We were all told by the league he was a
    tradeable player, and now they’re saying that Dell doesn’t have the
    authority to make the trade?” said an NBA executive who had periodic
    talks with New Orleans throughout the process.

    “Now they’re saying that
    Dell is an idiot, that he can’t do his job. [Expletive] this whole
    thing. David’s drunk on power, and he doesn’t give a [expletive] about
    the players, and he doesn’t give a [expletive] about the hundreds of
    hours the teams put in to make that deal.“How do the Lakers explain this
    to Odom? How does Houston deal with the guys it just tried to trade?
    Scola and Martin are going to be pissed at them, and who knows how long
    that takes to get over? Explain to me how the league kills this <span class="ysp-player">Pau Gasol</span> deal, but allows <span class="ysp-player">Kwame Brown</span> for <span class="ysp-player">Pau Gasol?</span>

    “To
    me, this makes the league feel like it’s rigged, that Stern just does
    whatever Stern wants to do. He’s messed up the competitive balance of
    this league a lot worse by killing the deal because you’ve completely
    destroyed the planning that New Orleans and Houston did and left them in
    shambles over this. I’ve never been so discouraged about this league,
    never so down.</p>


    <font color="#0000FF">“I mean, come on: Chris Paul is leaving New Orleans in 66 games. He’s
    gone. And what’s Dell Demps, and that franchise, going to have to show
    for it?”</font></p>

    We all remember where we were when <a class="flexpop">Brian Westbrook</a>
    took a knee instead of walking in for a touchdown (also against Dallas,
    also Week 15) in 2007. It was the difference between winning and
    losing for thousands of owners. But perhaps no Westbrook-induced loss
    was more painful than the story of a Wall Street guy who plays in a
    million-dollar league with other financial titans. That knee cost him
    $600,000. </p>

    Randomly, just Thursday, Brian Westbrook
    was here at ESPN doing a bunch of interviews and we chatted a bit. He
    told me, even four years later, not a day goes by that someone doesn't
    talk to him about that play and how it either won or lost them a fantasy
    game. I told him about the 600K guy. He just shook his head. That
    was a new one, even for Brian.</p>

    @DanFXC: Lost by .6 because Dallas iced their own kicker.</p>

    @bradhensley
    :What about a simple pic? Could have sat my D/ST and won. He missed
    playoffs by 1/2 game. (Included was a picture of the Giants' D/ST's -10
    points against the Packers, and the final score of 107-98.</p>

    @wmcmillan6:
    Went to sleep up .9 after MNF (in the) 1st round (of the playoffs) last
    year. Stat update: Browns +1 sack = I woke up down .1, final. Crushed.</p>

    @shimonmds: Last week I lost to someone who started <a class="flexpop">Peyton Manning</a>! Needless to say, neither of us are making the playoffs.</p>

    @hartleysworld: 2009 I'm No. 1 seed need 8 points with <a class="flexpop">Marion Barber</a>. He gets 47 yrds/14 RUSH, 22 yds REC and stopped 4 (times) in a row on 1 yard line.</p>

    @Mestblinknfggc:
    Down by 1.6, PPR, M. Lewis catches it, puts me up by .2, then fumbles.
    That was the end of the scoring for both teams.</p>

    @shaine_69: We have yardage bonuses at 100, <a class="flexpop">Fred Davis</a> at 99, Romo at 299, CJ2K knocked me out of playoff contention by last place guy.</p>

    @blairCmcdonald: 103.40 - 103.15 in Week 4. <a class="flexpop">Eli Manning</a> takes a knee 3 times in final minutes in win versus Arizona. Lose .3 and the matchup</p>

    @DucalCrownRalph:
    Easy. Last year, down by 4.5 in semifinals, AP sits out MNF, can't add
    anyone. Ended up 3rd, shoulda won it all #badbeat.</p>

    @majorleaguenerd:
    Week 3 SNF, Ben kneels to set up field goal. minus-2 rush yards. League
    scores to 2 decimal places. Lost by 0.08. Missed playoffs by 1 game.</p>

    @Mawam: League didn't allow pick-ups after Thursday night game, Prater injured in practice on Friday. Lost by 2 points</p>

    @UpperRDL: Finally got the GF to play. She's picking 6th, I'm 7th. Wanting to be sneaky I tell her to draft <a class="flexpop">Aaron Rodgers</a> so I could get Vick. Doh!</p>


    </p>

    LMAO ouch!!!!
