Mayo on Big Show: Not worried about refs
By: DJ Bean

Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo made his weekly appearance on The Big Show, discussing cutdown day with Pete Sheppard and and Kirk Minihane. The Patriots made some surprising moves Friday in releasing the likes of quarterback Brian Hoyer and wide receiver Deion Branch, some Mayo said is never easy to see. 

"You grow together as a family, going through training camp, going through those hot days, struggling together," Mayo said. "Any time you lose a fellow player is pretty tough, but we know this day is coming every year, and hopefully those guys land on their feet."

While Mayo wishes his former teammates the best, he said he wasn't shocked by any of the moves.

"To be honest with you, in this business nothing really surprises me," he said. "Guys move every season, and coach Belichick and those guys do an excellent job putting the team together, and this is what we're going to work with."

Fehr: CBA talks 'recessed' for time being
By: DJ Bean

NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr told reporters following Friday's CBA meeting that negotiations between the players association and NHL are currently off. Fehr said the negotiations are "recessed" and that there are no further meetings currently scheduled.

The league's current collective bargaining agreement is set to expire on Sept. 15, at which point the owners will lock out the players if a new agreement is not in place. Fehr did say that he didn't feel the players or the league would "stand on ceremony," meaning that both sides will be willing to resume talks eventually.
