Topshop was also probably a bit malleable at the negotiating table. Bigger, more established retail companies, such as Macys ( M ), H&M ( HMB:SS ), or even Gap ( GPS ), would probably be thrilled to be in business with Beyonce, but its doubtful they would have ceded her half the business.

Jason and I still laugh about it today.

Star receiver Calvin Johnson has been a nonfactor for the last month or so because of an ankle problem. Detroit has also dealt with injuries at the running back and tight end spots – and all over the defense.
