Shock news

A couple of news items, one involving a fire at Shock player Kevin Ellison's apartment, the other an update on AFL labor negotiations.

First, the fire in the apartment complex where virtually every Shock player resides. Ellison will face arson charges, according to investigators. The AFL rookie who played at USC apparently wasn't injured when he jumped from his third-floor room. Here's an article that will run in Friday's S-R.

Shock majority owner Brady Nelson stressed that the fire was in no way related to the AFL labor dispute.

Also, the AFL players union sent a counter proposal to owners on Thursday. Owners were expected to discuss the latest proposal tonight. More below.
