Jarret Payton, son of NFL legend Walter Payton, joins MFB to breakdown the troubles in the Bears locker room, the team's struggles at home, and the upcoming match up against the Patriots.
Jackie MacMullan joins MFB for the first time this season. She discusses the rejection of NBA lottery reform, Rajon Rondo, and the Celtics chances this season.
Will this incident affect the Patriots chances of signing Revis in the off-season.

After spending his first 15 seasons in the NBA with the Celtics, Paul Pierce will now be playing for his second team in as many years.

When the Nets didn’t re-sign him this past offseason, Pierce signed with the Washington Wizards. Planning on re-signing with the Nets, things started to go the other direction when coach Jason Kidd took the same job with the Milwaukee Bucks.

“I definitely didn’t see all that coming,” Pierce told reporters following a morning shootaround at the Garden before a preseason game with the Knicks on Wednesday, per the NY Daily News. “I think it all started probably with Jason leaving, it’s kind of like a domino from there. I was a little disappointed, because I thought I was going to come back there and Jason was one of the main reasons I came to Brooklyn, him and Kevin [Garnett].”

Pierce, 37, said he didn’t see any of this coming.

“It just happened so fast,” Pierce said. “I had a chance to talk to [Kidd] and he has his reasons, the way things went down. But like I said, the business ‘€” you’ve got to understand the business aspect of it. He moved on. The Nets moved on and people went their different directions. You see that a lot in this business.”

“I understand it’s a business,” he added. “I was a little surprised, but you’ve got to be ready for the business side of it and understand that part. So it didn’t shock me. No hard feelings, I understand their situation, they understand mine, and both parties moved on.”

Former Ravens running back Ray Rice will be appealing his indefinite suspension from the NFL, and according to an Associated Press report, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will be forced to testify.

The Commissioner was unsure he would actually testify, saying he would leave the decision to Judge Jones.

“We will continue to respect Judge Jones’ confidentiality order regarding this proceeding,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said in an email to the AP.

NFL lawyers have argued Goodell shouldn’t have to testify and instead there should be testimony from Jeff Pash, the NFL’s general counsel, and Adolpho Birch, the NFL’s vice president for labor policy — both of whom were present when Rice met with Goodell to hear his side of the story from Rice’s incident when he hit his then-fiancee in an elevator.

Goodell originally suspended the running back for two games, but then after the video was released publicly the suspension was then made indefinite. Goodell has said Rice’s description was “ambiguous,” while Rice’s side has said he gave exact details.

The AP also says the hearing will be held Nov. 5 and 6.

Revis was absent from practice and the guys wondered if this was the first time.
The guys opened the show discussing the disgusting weather.

Here are the highlights from Thursday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

– According to the Boston Herald, Massachusetts State Police are stepping up their patrols in “key locations” after a 24-year-old Canadian soldier was gunned down in Ottawa, Ontario on Wednesday. The gunman — 32-year-old, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau — an ex-convict, was dressed in all black when he shot and killed Cpl. Nathan Cirillo at point blank range at the National War Memorial.

“€œThey were locked down for all of the day, right?” Dennis asked. “They went office-to-office-to-office.”

The shooting postponed the Maple Leafs-Senators game, which was scheduled for last night.

“€œ[The Maple Leafs and Senators], they were looking out their windows watching all this go down,” Callahan said. “They weren’€™t allowed to leave and they didn’€™t get to play. They were like giving play-by-play on Twitter.”

– To remember the life of James Carver — a native of Springfield, Missouri — his cremated remains will be launched skyward as part of his family’€™s goodbye in a fireworks display. Greenlawn Funeral Homes director Jim Carver said his dad loved watching fireworks and would appreciate the unusual send off. The family will have a cookout and a memorial celebration following the fireworks.

“So Uncle James’ ashes are going to be on people?” Dennis asked.

Replied Callahan: “Ashes are going to fall down on the burgers as they cook them on the grill.”

– Raphael Ravenscroft, who had a solo on the saxophone in Gerry Rafferty’s hit “Baker Street,” died Sunday at the age of 60. He reportedly only received a flat fee of $43 for the song.

“Not a great song I would say,” remarked Callahan.

He added: “It reminds me of when I was in school and the FM-converter in my car was one station and it came on and I couldn’t change it.”
