....The NFL Players' Association doesn't get the ruling it wants in the T. O. case. The union's response: Dismiss arbitrator Richard Bloch.

Executive director Gene Upshaw:

"One thing I can control is that he will no longer be an arbitrator in any more of our cases."

So the Eagles fought not to release T.O. outright so he can't go play for another team, say the Cowboys or the Giants. But worrying that T.O. will catch on on with a division rival only gives him more significance. If I were Eagles' management, I'd say 'Screw you, play for whoever wants you.'

Besides, he's by no means a gift-wrapped trip to the Super Bowl. And what team with a legitimate chance to get to the Super Bowl would risk its chemistry by bringing this guy into the locker room?
