MAKING A FEDERAL CASE OUT OF IT: The Bengals and the NFL agree to mediation

Some of us just can't stop thinking about football--after all, the next Super Bowl is only 363 days away. (Especially here in Boston, where fans are jubilantly celebrating the New England Patriot's third Super Bowl victory in four years.)

And those of us mediator types who also happen to be football junkies sit up and take notice when a news story combines our two passions. Seems that the Cincinnati Bengals and the National Football League have just agreed to mediate a federal anti-trust suit filed by Hamilton County, Ohio. They're working on selecting the mediators right now.

Stay tuned, sports fans.
