    The Draft to Save the Browns

    I don’t need to be a GM, but I always thought it would be a great challenge to be involved in the draft process.
  2. This of course is just me playing around and based on projections at this point... Just thought I would play a bit, no not perfect but just an idea of how to rebuild via the draft. The Rd2 pick 1 and Rd 3 pick 1 would go to Seattle to get their 20th pick in the 1st. Pick Name Position College Rd1 1 Saquon Barkley RB Penn State Rd1 4 Orlando Brown OT Oklahoma Rd2 1 Josh Allen (SEA Rd1 #20) QB Wyoming TRADE BACK INTO Rd1 Rd2 5 Harrision Phillips DT Stanford Rd2 32 Dallas Roedert TE South Dakota State Rd3 1 SEATTLE SEAHAWKS PICK Rd1 #20 TRADE BACK INTO Rd1 Rd4 1 Jordan Wyatt CB Southern Methodist Rd4 24 Josey Jewell ILB Iowa Rd5 1 Carlton Davis CB Auburn Rd5 25 Dante Pettis WR Washington Rd 6 1 Akrum Wadley RB Iowa Rd7 1 Luke Falk QB Wash. State

    MLB TV contract

    I could buy the MLB package for MLB.tv and get my local team on ROKU.
  5. Living in Seattle Area and watching the NBA/NHL issues here. What are people's thoughts towards the "Green Bay Model" of ownership. Should communities have ownership stakes in teams if public funding or bonds are used to build stadiums or should communities be given a stake in or whole ownership? Personally, I think it is a crime that cities and fans are asked to commit to teams, stadiums and other resources then a team can move without having to expose themselves to local ownership first. I am not an NBA fan, but seems that other cities are facing the Sonics issue of, "It happened there, so give us what we want or it will happen to you." St. Louis, Atlanta and others are experiencing their version of this ideal. Thoughts.

    Texas girls hoops team seeks forfeit of 100-0 win

    I read this yesterday on Yahoo, and have been pondering it since. There is a dilema here of now forfeiting the game in my mind. Here is the debate, because I could not act accordingly when beating you, I should forfeit the game to you. I think it needs to go a step further. If I were the coach I would suggest maybe that the team showing bad sportsmenship in the case, be encourage to go support this team. They can do this is several ways, when they play a game show up to support them, cheer for them and become a fan of their courage to face odds. Two they could offer practice help etc. I don't really know the answers I am thinking more outloud here. As for the game itself, once a head they needed to get their superior players off the floor, work on some skills, slow down the game and make it about learning rather then a win lose situation.
  10. A few things, the idea of dark and light uniforms had to do more with TV than anything. You can have a uniform contract and still not break a rule. Again, I know it is minor but any coach, player and etc will tell you over looking the smallest detail no matter how small leads to an error. The error here is we tell players not to break rules then do it ourselves. Coaches should model the expectation, and I know we don't live in a perfect world, and we invite gray areas, but that does not mean we should not strive for prefection and this is something that can be controlled. As the best coach and teacher I ever had said, "Perfect practice makes perfect, that is the only way."
  11. Ok I am going to get on a soap box here about this "I am going to wear the uniform I want, regardless of the rules" fad of late... 1) In a day and age, where atheletes continue to be come "I" focused do coaches really need to confirm this ideal by themselves ignoring the rules? 2) The 70's are over, we don't need fashion statements on the field of Play. All you really need is a home and away uniform, you don't need 6 sets of uniforms. 3) Why do we really need a monochrome uniform, most of them are ugly. There I have said my peace, but my biggest concern is actually #1. Really coaches complain that players need to be more focused on the important things, be more team focused, and play by the rules... The whole I am going to wear what I want is the wrong message, if I was an AD of a college, I would make it clear to my coaches they WILL NOT INTENTIONALLY break ANY rules...no matter how minor. It is the little things that add up and this fad is one of those little things that completely sends the wrong message..

    Colorado State University-Pueblo uniforms

    I think as a forum we should make CSU Pueblo our official college football team. C = Creamer S = Sports U = Uniforms/Logos Pueblo = Village of Common People Just thought it was an interesting tie in. As for the logo. I think I might have to get me a CSU Pueblo sweatshirt for school this year. Last year we adopted Slippery Rock to keep stats on for studying fractoins, decimals and %'s in my room. I wore a sweatshirt on Fridays to school, plus it lets the kids know there are more Universities out there then just the big ones.
