Marcie Sillman talks with Dave Zirin, sports writer for The Nation, about how the recent federal raids to inspect illegal drug use are just one of many signs that the relationship between the federal government and professional football is changing.

Agents from the Drug Enforcement Agency conducted surprise inspections of the staff of at least three National Football League teams on Sunday.

CNN reports:

"The DEA questioned the medical and training staffs of the San Francisco 49ers following the team's 16-10 victory at the New York Giants, agency spokesman Rusty Payne told CNN.

To improve Seattle traffic, what if your child in the backseat no longer gets you into the HOV lane? Good idea? Also: Is Backpage.com liable for sex trafficking through its site? Would expanded gun background checks lead to gun confiscation? And will anyone really give marijuana candy to trick-or-treaters? Really?

Yesterday, at the end of the fourth quarter, the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos were tied. That triggered overtime. The referee tossed a coin, Denver's quarterback called tails and it was heads. So Seattle got the ball, scored a touchdown -- and the game was over.

That’s it.

Denver never got the ball, never got a chance to score.

Cornerback Richard Sherman may be the most famous ranter on the Seattle Seahawks, but last Tuesday the team signed a player known for his own tirade.

Offensive lineman Eric Winston was with the Kansas City Chiefs two seasons ago when his quarterback, Matt Cassel, got knocked out with a concussion during a home game.

Saying the Seattle Seahawks kept San Francisco 49ers fans from being able to pull for their team in January's NFC title game, a 49ers fan is suing the NFL, claiming the practice of limiting ticket sales to pro-Seahawks markets amounts to "economic discrimination." He is seeking $50 million in damages.

As hosts of the playoff game, the Seahawks limited credit-card sales of tickets to accounts with billing addresses in a list of nearby states. California wasn't on that list, which included parts of Canada and Hawaii. As a resident of Nevada, John E. Williams III was shut out.
