    What did you do? Draft in April? He retired in July. But back in that time drafts were held pretty early. I remember holding my draft in the middle of July when I first started doing fantasy leagues.

    I didn't believe his retirment DC - he was talking retirement or just announced it, but he was so close to the all time yardage record - I thought he was just trying to get out of training camp. So I thought I was drafting value - based on what I knew about human nature. I was wrong in Sanders' case (and respect him for that).

    Barry Sanders retired in the off-season. I don't see what the big deal is. What is the difference between what he and Shannon Sharpe did? Do you hate Sharpe?

    You have to be the only person in the history of an NFL fan that I have heard who doesn't like Barry Sanders. I am sorry to hear that. That is a shame.

    Shannon Sharpe did everything a player could do in the NFL, and was always sincere and committed to his teams ..

    Barry Sanders, IMHO, was a hypocritical little prick who bailed when he realized he couldn't dictate who the QB was or how the organization was run... It's not a shame at all - there are plenty of NFL players who have earned my respect not from the highlight films but from showing true character and the willingness to go all out no matter the situation

    Sanders' retirement came somewhat unexpectedly and was a matter of controversy. Two years earlier, Sanders had renewed his contract with the Lions for $35.4 million over six years with an $11 million signing bonus. The Lions demanded that he return $5.5 million of the bonus. Sanders refused, and the Lions sued. On February 15, 2000, an arbitrator ruled that Sanders had to immediately repay $1.833 million, or one-sixth of the bonus, with the remaining bonus to be repaid over each of the three years Sanders had left on the contract provided he stayed retired. Before the ruling, Sanders offered to pay back the entire $5.5 million in return for his release from the team. The Lions refused, stating they would welcome Sanders back to the team; otherwise, they would honor his announced retirement. Sanders' agent David Ware lobbied the team to trade his client.

    He was prepared to play for another team - a "winning" team ..... He bailed, and played the part of martyr

    By the way I don't get the hate for Romo ...at all .. I must be not in the norm on this.. but I loved all of his BS He was a blast to watch. He was mean as a snake and I loved to watch him strike ...he wanted to win at all cost... I bet if we would of had him on staff the last two SB trophies would of been lifted by our players.

    I don't think anyone here was saying they hated Romo.

    Why are you calling not hating Romo the norm? I think it was the norm for opposing teams to hate him.

    Some didn't like his actions but there is no question he was a helluva an impact.

    I mean Romo spit on JJ Stokes made racist comments and sent his teammate into intensive care and plastic surgery during his career. Some people don't like him. But I am guessing most of those people aren't Bronco fans.

    I am guessing a good christian like Geo, that he wasn't his favorite Bronco.

    I do my best to keep religion and politics out of my comments here, but I had to respond to this. ;)

    Yes, I am a Christian. No, I'm not all that good. And yes, Romo wouldn't ever make my list as a favorite Bronco.

    noHe helped us win two SB's I Like people that hate to lose ... I have no problem Him get hot headed in a game heck there is some crazy ass stuff goes on so yes I like at least one nut on the team . Would want him at my house for BBQ ? no But I sure wish we had him on our staff right now.

    Name one time were he was not in the heat of battle were he said one thing wrong. It never happened . I bet JJ stokes was up to no good. Or romo wanted him to start messing up either way I don't judge people for messing up one time that is Quite silly.

    Crash, nobody is ragging on Romo the player. The reasons why one may not like him is because of the person and his actions. You don't need to sit here and justify him as a player. You're wasteing your time in doing so. Everyone knows what he did for the team.

    There's an old story about Lyndon Johnson - a reporter ran up to question him about the US support for an authoritarian government - calling out in exasperation - "He's a Son-of-a-Bitch." Johnson said: "Yes, but he's our Son-of-a-Bitch."

    As a player on the field Romo thrilled me and some times disqusted me - off the field I was usually embarrased.
