Morning Cup Of Joe

April 28th, 2011

Bucs news forthcoming.

One suit/lawyer claims the NFL should cancel the draft today as they are setting themselves up for a nasty lawsuit. Don’t ya just love legalese mixed in with your football? Thanks Goodell for trying to kill the golden goose! [SI]

Goodell was heckled in the streets of New York last night, as he should be. Joe only months ago thought Goodell to be a good commissioner but he is hellbent on a runaway train in trying to ruin the very fabric of the game, from all circles seemingly. Give me back my game! [PFT]

It just dawned on Joe this sleep-deprived morning: Why the hell are the Panthers so secretive on who they will draft tonight? It’s not like some team will make a trade to move ahead of them if this state secret is leaked. Paranoia self destroy ya. [NFL]

Hey, even non-bean counters can play their dirty little game too. Think of this when you next go to Wal Mart or Sam’s Club. [AlterNet]

    If it wasn’t for Bud Selig, Roger Goodell would be the worst commissioner in the history of pro sports. From suspensions and fines for hard hits, to taking home games away from fans and sending them to London, to the Gestapo-esque attitude he’s brought to the league (I’m no Pacman Jones fan, but how the hell can you kick a guy out of the league who’s NEVER BEEN ARRESTED?), and now he has a lockout on his watch.

    Oh, and let me also add the changes he made to the draft as another negative. Starting on a Thursday and 3 days long? What a joke. Worst commissioner ever.

    Can’t go along with you there. This was actually a very savvy move by Goodell. Think of it: We have football on a Thursday and a Friday night and most of the day on Saturday.

    In addition, far more people are watching the draft now than they ever did. That also means more $$$ for the owners.

    Props to Goodell on this one!

    If the NFL opens it’s doors and allows a wild wild west free agency like the players union is forcing, then the Bucs will be like the Rays.

  5. WeNeedDefense Says:

    Say the young Bucs won 10 games last year, but the rebuttle to that is, there will be a top teir of teams like the Yankees and Red Sox (pro bowl type teams) that will pound our young team.

    Yea, my views on that are more personal than about whether or not it’s a good business move.

    I just loved the marathon feel to the draft in the past. Grew up as an absolute draftnik, and there was something to be said about those of us who would block off hours on a weekend to watch 22 year olds become millionaires and hundred thousand-aires. And I really miss having the first and second rounds going back to back.

    I guess I just liked having it set up for only the hardcore fans, but I can’t disagree that the move has put more eyes on the draft which all in all is a good thing.
