NHL, Officials Agree to New Deal Without Any Drama

Well that was easy. The NHL and its officials have a brand new four-year deal, all spiffy and ratified.

At a time when the NBA and the NFL are on the verge of work stoppages, it’s nice to see someone solving problems constructively and simply. Granted, the money isn’t close to the same, but still: no games, no shots in the media, just actionable solutions.

“We are pleased to have reached a new agreement with our officials,” NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly told the AP. “We look forward to working closely with our officials to ensure that the quality of our game continues to be the best that it can be.”

We might not have basketball or football in 2011, but we’ll always have hockey.

'FarmVille Meets Fantasy Sports:' CBS Takes Fantasy Football to Facebook

CBSSports.com has long had its own fantasy football league, but now the company is expanding its fantasy presence to a new platform: Facebook.

The network is launching “Franchise Football,” a new variation of fantasy football, which will be available exclusively on the social networking site. Calling it “FarmVille meets Fantasy Sports,” the game will have users selecting real players who will play statistically accurate simulated games. Users can earn virtual cash or “reputation points” depending on how their virtual team plays.

“Fantasy sports is really one of the original social networks so it’s a natural for CBSSports.com to extend these games into the world of social media,” said Jason Kint, Senior Vice President and General Manager, CBSSports.com. “Franchise Football will serve as a great extension of our award-winning fantasy football games on CBSSports.com, giving casual players and fanatics alike an avenue to participate in the game on a year round basis.”
