Tom Brady will not attend Wednesday tomorrow’s oral arguments before Judge Berman that start at 10am. The NFL has declined to comment on whether Commissioner Goodell will be there. Neither was required to attend. There is no testimony. This is a chance for lawyers to make oral arguments following their written submissions late Friday, when the NFL asserted the court has no right to interfere into the internal management of a private organization and when the Players Association in turn questioned the structure of the arbitration. Absent a settlement, which is the preferred method of the judge, both sides have urged Berman to rule by Sept. 4, a week before the Patriots first regular season game. And those settlement talks, according to some reports, are at a stalemate.

Jared Fogle, the former Subway spokesperson whose home was raided by federal agents in connection with a child pornography investigation in early July, will indeed plead guilty to possession of child pornography charges. Several computers and DVDs were seized from Fogle’s home during the raid. When word of the raid broke out, Subway immediately ended their relationship with Fogle, despite his denials that he had done anything wrong. Fogle gained national fame after attributing massive weight loss to eating Subway sandwiches. He was a freshman at Indiana University at the time, and later became the key pitchman for the sandwich chain.
