  • NFL Draft

    Making a 3 day spectacle of a 7 round event that is as pseudo-scientific as voodoo, witchcraft, or alchemy! Earlier they did about 20-30 rounds in a day. A made for TV event that allows NY Jets fans to act like morons, (Jets fans and morons, sorry I repeated myself) when it is in Radio City Music Hall.

    I'm passing on it, except to check the Pittsburgh papers the morning after each day. That will also eliminate eye strain caused by it appearing that Mel Kiper's lips are out of sync with his words when he speaks.

        Greg, you and Trung Si are great guys, but pre-draft babbling is worse than the senseless, interminable buildup to a state presidential primary. The "experts" mainly have a worse record than your local weatherman. I love NFL football, but this stuff makes me want to hurl!

            I will check to see who the Steelers drafted but other than that I don't care about the NFL draft. ESPN is becoming the NFL Network 2. They cover every little detail on every player and it is complete overkill.

              Precisely! I didn't know you were a Stiller fan! I know it is misspelled, but I have to keep my accent skills up Yunz! Yes, it is yunz. I never heard anyone say yinz in my life until the wannabes started crawling out of the woodwork!

                It's hilarious...every time Goodell walks up to the podium, the audience boo him.

                    Steelers take Burns, CB, Miami. I don't recall hearing his name much if at all, but I trust their judgement. Rooney and the team staff do know football. Its not like they are Jerry Jones or Danny Snyder!

                      You didn't hear of him much because many of the other teams had Burns rated as a third rounder. Still, several teams picked guys that would have been available later. Atlanta must have really liked their pick!

                        Put BLUNTLY ... the Dolphins got the deal of the Draft in Tunsil OT

                        Much needed position for phins.

                          Could be, but time will tell. Lots of first round busts are out there for every team, as well as pleasant surprises are there as well.

                            The 49ers could have and should have grabbed Tunsil. But Chip Kelly picked his DE from Oregon. I am happy with Buckner but would have preferred Tunsil. Garnett is a .

                            That picture that was posted on Tunsil's Twitter acct was done by someone who wanted to hurt the big guy's image and it kinda did. It was weird watching it unfold live during the draft. Then Tunsil threw Ole Miss under the bus talking about being paid.

                              Lots of SEC schools pay their athletes. The athletes don't talk about it while they are getting it, but Tunsil is about to get a bigger payday. Garnett is a highly respected Offensive Lineman. The Saints were set to take him in the second round. He can play either Guard or Tackle.

                              Many years ago (Seventies) a local High School (Lake Charles High) had four athletes sign with LSU. They all showed up there in cream colored convertibles. Coincidence? I think not. One's father was a high school principal and another father was a mailman. They could not afford to buy the cars. Three of the four were Black and the one lone White was the Principal's son. One went on to the pros, Orlando McDaniels. Two ran track at LSU as well.

                              The smaller schools also slip money to athletes. I taught school in DeQuincy one year and my students were talking about an athlete at Pickering High that took money to sign with a Texas Junior College. The guy ran out of stuff he wanted and was offering to give money to anyone he knew!

                              Right now LSU and Tulane are actually paying money to athletes under NCAA rules that allow payments. The rule was set up for minorities attending high priced universities. This is a long way from the days when athletes got Summer Jobs where they did little work and high pay. I worked at Citgo Refinery in the '80's and they were still talking about a seven foot tall McNeese Basketball player working out there one summer in the early '70's. Big Ed heard the siren go off that indicated a chemical leak had occurred. Big Ed high jumped the perimeter fence without using his hands and was finally stopped a mile down the road, still running! If you had ever saw him slowly playing Basketball, you would have been impressed!
