It is so rare for the United States Supreme Court to even accept a case.

On Thursday, it rejected Maurice Clarett's emergency appeal twice.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg first denied Clarett's request to lift a stay issued by the 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals. Clarett's lawyer, Alan Milstein, argued that the former Ohio State running back would suffer irreperable harm if an NFL team did not draft him this weekend.

Ginsburg cited the NFL's response, which stated...

The attorney for former Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett, Alan Milstein, filed an emergency appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court Tuesday.

Milstein asked the nation's highest court to lift the stay issued Monday by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The stay, in effect, declares Clarett and other underclassmen, including USC receiver Mike Williams, ineligible for the NFL until there can be a meaningful review of the issues.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader...

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York declared on Monday former Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett ineligible for this weekend's NFL draft.

On Monday, the three federal judges said a stay on the lower court's ruling was warranted to safeguard the NFL...

There was no room in the Dawg Pound for a Wolf... as in Ron Wolf.

The former Packers GM signed on with the Browns three months ago to be a part-time talent consultant. Exiting Team President Carmen Policy was largely responsible for luring Wolf over. However, with Policy's recent announcement that he would resign effective May 1, Wolf decided there was no reason to stay on.

Even though Wolf's track record includes acquiring Brett Favre from Atlanta to Green Bay, Browns...
