I missed it. I'm watching the Mets game and there has been no mention of this today. I hope I get to see it later. I like both players very much. And Mike helped us Mets fans briefly forget about 9/11 with his unforgettable home run the first game back after the tragic event. I was happy to be there to see it.
Congrats to Mike and Junior.
I agree with equating the substance abuse test to somewhat of an IQ test. It is also a discipline test. Those who are not too bright or disciplined will get caught.
It seems that players take amphetamines to give them an edge or greater confidence in games. Most will not use them in the offseason because there are no games to be played. So, those who take amphetamines are likely not to test positive because they are not tested during the season. Right?
I am definitely not a proponent of legalizing marijuana, but the NFL's position on this is akin to the marijuana laws that have gotten poor and less educated folks imprisoned for possession. If the NFL is testing for illicit drugs, then they should test for them randomly anytime in the year, not only from April to August. JMHO
Just watched Mike Piazza and my favorite baseball player of all time Ken Griffey Jr. get inducted into Coopers Town! Very well deserved for both men! Congrats! Great memories watching The Kid as a kid. Best baseball player I have ever seen play
I set the Draft Order by reverse rankings from last year. As of note, I used the playoff results and not the final season results for setting the draft order.
As it stands here is the draft order by Team Name:
1. Punters be Winning too
2. Team IndyD4u
3. Mike Strahans Tooth Gap
4. Luck Be A Lady
5. Team Coltman
6. Indy Bluefire
7. Swoope There It Is
8. Go Pack Go
9. Phillip my Ball to 12.5 PSI
10. Team Hulce
I also edited the LM Note a slight bit. Instead of suggesting replacing a WR for a Flex, I changed it to replacing a TE for a Flex. This is only a suggestion and not what will happen. Must be approved by a supermajority 7/10. p
If there are teams that do not respond by deadline or do not wish to resume, they will be removed and spots will open up. This means Draft order spots will open up. Starting from #1 position down, you will be given the option to either move UP one or DOWN one spot, depending on what is open around you.
After all positions are determined, new entrants will get to select their spots from the remaining available; in the order of reply to this topic.
Tentatively set the draft date to Sept. 3rd at 9pm. Obviously this will change, but wanted to get it set up for now.
Welcome jseg18!!! We will pretend that you were not even close to being a Niner fan. No, from Montana and then Young they were fun to watch. I hope we all have fun this year. I do not think the Colts are going to be 3rd in the South.....Have fun.
