A family of Patriots fans from New Jersey filed a lawsuit against the bosses of the old Giants Stadium based on a situation during last year's Patriots-Jets game. The suit alleges that Michelle Munoz, a 43-year-old mother, was sworn at, punched and eventually thrown over a row of seats for holding up a sign that read, "I love Tom Brady." Her 14-year-old daughter, wearing a Patriots jersey, also was the target of abuse. The family claims security ignored their pleas for help because they are Pats fans.

Appearing on the Dennis & Callahan Show, PGA golfer Brad Faxon said that he expects Tiger Woods to be part of the United States Ryder Cup team when the group is announced by U.S. captain Corey Pavin Tuesday. "There's no way you can leave him off the team," said Faxon, who also identified J.B. Holmes, Zach Johnson, and Stewart Cink as the golfers he believes Pavin will choose to round out the team.
"I like the guy who is playing the best golf, and it's not clear-cut right now," Faxon said. "This is a tough choice because we need guys who are playing well, badly."
Faxon also explained that he doesn't believe Faxon's picks will be formed by outside influences. "First of all, I don't think NBC and Corey are talking. It's his sole decision," he said. "The PGA of America doesn't have any input in his decision, nor does NBC."
Pavin's selections are...

In an interview Monday with CBSSports.com, Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss spoke about his frustration regarding his current contract status. Moss is entering the final year of a three-year deal and believes that his level of the play with the Patriots warrants an extension.
"When you have done so much and put so much work in, it kind of feels like I am not wanted," Moss told CBSSports.com. "I am taking that in stride and playing my final year out and whatever the future holds is what it holds, but it is kind of a bad feeling -- feeling not wanted. It is not like my production has gone down. I am speaking from an individual standpoint. I don't know about Tom [Brady's] or whoever else's contract.
