For most of the last decade, the Cure has seemed a band for which breaking up would not be that hard to do.It's not as if the band has been beset with rampaging egos or romantic complications. Apart from keyboardist Lol Tolhurst, who was forced out of the band in 1988 and later filed an unsuccessful lawsuit against front-man Robert Smith, the Cure has been relatively free of internal strife in its 20 years of existence.If anything, Smith, bassist Simon Gallup, guitarist Porl Thompson and drummer Boris Williams always have seemed more like buddies than band-mates.

Their running backs haven't played a down this preseason, but the Ravens have their game plan in place. A day after returning from their canceled opener in Philadelphia, the defending Super Bowl champions have ended talks with free agent Chris Warren for now and have backed off on the possibility of bringing back Errict Rhett. The intention is to sit tight for the next two weeks and go with their current halfback corps of Terry Allen, Jason Brookins and Chris Barnes. The Ravens, though, will not start the regular season with this group and will likely make their move when rosters have to be trimmed.
