NFL opens for business . . . sort of

Here’s a link to a release from the NFL detailing what players will be allowed to do awaiting a decision from the 8th Circuit Court of appeals.

Looks like transactions with veteran players will not be a part of this year’s draft.

    Brien, still doesn’t seem like a big deal. I know a ton of white kids from the burbs that would steal a laptop in a flash. Young people do dirt.

    Durant is best player in the league and pound for pound they have the deepest bench quiet as kept, now they got the size. Oh boy everyone is in trouble

    Mistic, you could have coached that Tampa team to victory? You’re a better coach than Tony Dungy?

    MR, how would you know? Aren’t you too busy gobbling Maloof meat in a desperate attempt to keep the Kings in Sactown to pay attention to playoff teams like the Lakers?

    MR have you ever been on an elite major D1 univeristy before? Those players are living like Kings and this idiot stealing? Naw man….all bad.

    No you dont get it man. He is a black athlete stealing from more than likely some white dude. I mean I understand all the “this” and “that” people wanna use to excuse him. I just see an ultra talented guy who will be a force and fall at the height of his stuff. That’s all. Your 3 year prediction I dont know but 5 I can see.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    Laptop? A kid makes a bad (allegedly) choice nearly 3 years ago and we are still penalizing him for that? As far as i know he hasnt been in any trouble at all since leaving florida.

    By the way this just in, Florida schools are havens for kids doing stupid things. that is why florida, fsu & miami are always in the news for players being arrested.

    Cam was just another kid in a long long long line of youth getting caught up in the trappings of major college football under the florida sun.

    I thought so too until a few days ago, but there is a major rift in that team. The Lakers will take full advantage of said rift both this season and in the offseason when the Lakers get either Westbrook or Durant after one of them demands a trade.

  • Gust372

    Dakota, just don’t think the Lakers are as good this year as the past couple of years. Kobe shows more signs of aging every time he steps on the court.

    Newton stole the Laptop at a Community College.

    Gust,

    Dungy was fired unjustly, and a year too soon. had Tampa kept dungy they may have won 2 or 3 superbowls, instead of the 1 that dungy prepped for them

    could happen

  • Gust372

    Mistic, Dungy was there for 6 seasons! And I remember throughout his entire era Tampa had those great defenses but they couldn’t so much as move the ball an inch on offense. They were just putrid on offense. Gruden changed that.

  • Dakota

    “Newton allegedly stole a Dell laptop from a UF student’s dorm room and then threw it out of the window when University Police Department officers visited Newton’s dorm today, according to the UPD arrest report. Newton was booked at 2:25 p.m. after the alleged burglary was reported on Oct. 16, according to the report.”

    UF is pretty much a community college, just one with a massive athletics department…..

    Yawwwwwwwwwwnnnnnnnnn……this is beyond BS. Florida is a major state and an actual factor in people’s mind in American places to live. If you think their education is below par then sir you are badly misinformed.

  • Gust372

    I could have seen a young Ken Stabler stealing a laptop at Alabama…assuming there were laptops then.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    Dungy needed a better o coordinator, he built that team. The yucs screwed him, and he went on to win anyway. Gruden rode his coat tails & his jock

    spread offense
    one year wonder
    thief (laptop)
    liar (I didn’t know my Dad was pimping me out!)
    cheater (really need to cheat on a test at Florida?)

    Yeah, sounds like a sure thing at the top of the draft. Good luck Panthers lol.

  • Gust372

    Mistic, it took Dungy 6 years to figure out he needed a better coordinator? Dungy’s a great defensive coach, and he was perfect in Indy because they already had an offensive machine in place. But he was dull on offense. Gruden gave that offense the spark it needed to win the Super Bowl.

  • Gust372

    So you get my point then, Brien. Stabler and Favre were rapscallions, too. I wouldn’t put it past Favre to gank someones computer when he was in college. It’s just the type of dumb s… young people do.

    OKC is a bad matchup for LA all over the board with Mohammed and Perkins there now. Ibaka is at the PF where is belongs. That changed the dynamics of how you have to guard those suckas now. It’s a wrap in the west. Durant is unstoppable

  • Gust372

    If Favre can take a picture of his junk and send it to a female reporter, I’m pretty sure he could steal someone’s computer when he’s 20 years old. Yet, he’s a certain hall of famer. Regarded as one of the greatest leaders to ever play the game. So I’m very suspicious of people being so harsh on someone like Cam Newton for showing some of the same behavioral traits.

    Computers in Mississippi in the late 80s?

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    Gust,
    gruden inherited a sb team, bottom line. Gruden brought in brad johnson and benched shuan king, but his offense was by no means a Juggernaut. it was still a run first offense with alstot and dunn.

  • http://www.raiders.com/ r8eray

    Cannon..maybe in the 3rd!!!
    He’s a good O-line guy…like him. I’m thinking 0-line also.

    The wannabe is you Kell. You wannabe someone elite over others and we aren’t buying it. I’m actually a genuinely cool cat and folks from blog can vouch for that. No one wants to meet you unless its to physically attack you. You are a piece of work and people and Kane & Associates know it well

  • Gust372

    Mistic, Gruden did not inherit a SB team. He inherited a great defensive team with one of the worst offenses in the league, made the offense competitive, and brought Tampa Bay their first Lombardi trophy.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    OKc may make it to the finals, but they wont beat boston. boston has bigs that play d and can score. i dont think westbrook and durant will be quiet as good around the basket against them. Okc only has 1 decent perimeter defender james hardin. durant and westbrook dont guard any body.
