Rashard Mendenhall Won't Get Paid From Champion

Rashard Mendenhall‘s bad week isn’t over just yet.

After getting canned from Champion athletic brand for his controversial tweets about Osama bin Laden, now comes word that the company is refusing to pay out the balance of Mendenhall’s endorsement deal.

“We intend to pay Rashard through the termination of the contract, which we have dated as effective next Friday,” said spokesman Max Hall.

According to Hall, “the termination is allowed by and consistent with the language contained in the contract.”

The 23-year-old Pittsburgh Steelers running back recently signed a four-year contract extension with Champion through 2015. He first signed a deal in 2008.

‘Tiger Jam’ back in Vegas after skipping year

“Tiger Jam,” Tiger Woods‘ long-time charity music concert, is back on this weekend after taking a year off, and John Mayer and Keith Urban are headlining the event at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

“I’m thrilled these two talented musicians are joining us for Tiger Jam,” Woods says on his Web site. “We have had so much success with this event over the last 13 years, raising more than $12 million for programs of my foundation, and we are excited to continue that tradition.”

According to Greg McLaughlin, chairman of Woods’ foundation, last year’s event was canceled because they couldn’t coordinate the schedules of the artists they’d selected to perform. Woods’ representatives denied reports that the cancellation of the event, held in Las Vegas since 1999, had anything to do with his sex scandal or his divorce.

Vick documentary in works

Michael Vick has agreed to let Bombo Sports & Entertainment do a documentary about his life. Bombo CEO Bob Potter said the 70- to 90-minute biopic on Vick, who served time in federal prison for his involvement in a dog-fighting ring, will not gloss over the unsavory details of Vick’s past.

“I am a dog owner, so this won’t be a sugar-coating, but it should be a good film about an athlete who is fantastically talented and really polarizing at the same time,” Potter told Sports Business Daily.

Potter hopes the documentary, which does not yet have a director, can be released in time for the 2011 NFL season and perhaps air on ESPN.
