Latrell Sprewell had a family to feed.

And Devin Hester apparently would be too ashamed to leave his house.

Hester, the Chicago Bears' dynamic kick returner, wants a raise. He's in the third year of the four-year contract he signed as a rookie, and he's scheduled to make almost $450,000 this season.

The sticking point is that Hester wants to be paid as much as a starting wide receiver. As good as he is at his job (11 kicks returned for TDs as a professional), he's still a specialist, and kick returners historically flame out quickly.

"I can't go out and play this year making $445,000," Hester told the Chicago Tribune. "Come on, man."

That comment is up there with Sprewell turning down a $7 million per annum NBA offer because, "I've got a family to feed."

Memo to Hester: With people paying $4 per gallon for gas and everything else going up, no one cares if you're too embarrassed to make $445,000.

RUDY'S SON GOING AFTER DUKE

The son of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani is suing Duke University, claiming he was wrongfully kicked off the golf team. The lawsuit claims the coach has interfered with Andrew Giuliani's efforts toward becoming a professional golfer.

I know the feeling. When I didn't get the job as the editor of my college newspaper, the faculty adviser interfered with my chances of getting the back-page column for Sports Illustrated.

Anyway, Giuliani claims he was dismissed without cause from the golf team earlier this year because coach O.D. Vincent III wanted to cut the team of 13 players by about half. Giuliani seems to have forgotten the fact that athletic scholarships in the NCAA are renewed on a yearly basis. Coaches are within their rights to not renew, and given Giuliani's track record, Vincent appears to have some cause: A junior this past season, Giuliani was 12th among 14 players listed on the Duke roster in stroke average at 74.5. In addition, Giuliani is 489th in the world among amateur players in Golfweek's current rankings.

Hardly the stuff of a PGA Tour pro in the making. There's always politics.
