    So who's watching the draft, at least part of day one, on Saturday? I can hardly wait! My team, the Cowboys, don't have a lot of picks at this moment, but last minute trades can happen and maybe they can pick up an extra somewhere along the way. We need a RB, OT, CB, WR and DE. What's your team doing?

    Go Cowboys!

    The Supreme Court stuff was more interesting. I do watch...to see what teams really blow it. Like waiting for the wreck at a NASCAR race

    I was pleased that the Denver Broncos can focus on some long-term help because SHANNON SHARPE decided to stick around another year or two! Don't care for his outspoken attitude, but that man can play the game!

    Now if I can visit with Ed McCaffery about not retiring . . [​IMG] He was about the classiest guy I've seen catch a football (compared to the hot shot wide receivers and their end zone parties).

    Dr. Bob,
    What do you think about players (ie Manning, et al) telling the NFL draft what teams they will play for an what teams they won't? I have mixed feelings about it. Leaves a bad taste; but I guess that its better for teams to know than find out later. Lessens my desire to watch some of their games more than I'm already turned off!

    I dunno, Wally. Pro football is a BUSINESS. Long as a team can cut a player in a trice who's given it fifteen years' loyal service, I believe the players should use THEIR power when they can.

    BTW, I believe big-time college sports are a business, too. They make mucho dinero for the schools, showcase the players to the pro teams, and serve as free farm clubs for several pro sports. I think the NFL knows this. That's why they fought against allowing Maurice Clarett from entering the NFL. The NFL gets most of its top players from college, and they're not stupid enough to destroy a free "Player Development League" which not only develops the players, but parades their names to the public, causing their fans to boost the pro team they go to.$$$$$$$.
