    Hold the Draft in Chicago

    So it will be convenient for DC to go.

    That's pretty funny!

    And I asked DC yesterday if he would go if it were held in Chicago and he said doubtful. He refuses to be surrounded by draft geeks who think they know more than him.

    I think he was referring to Mayock and Mel.

    Are you advocating for tougher police action?

    I'm saying that the NFL bent to political pressure which means politics is everywhere and in everything wether some people around here chose to become upset by that fact or not.

    Going to Chicago itself doesn't bother. Been there 100's of times. As long as you don't sell drugs and get yourself caught up in a bad relationship you are generally ok in life.
    Walk the lakeshore, go to the navy pier. Southside Chicago is a lot more rougher but as long as you stay to yourself and don't do stupid things the probability of you randomly getting shot is slim. Just don't flash a wad of cash.

    To me I will probably never attend a draft because when it comes to the draft I want my own time, I don't want to watch it with 100's of morons who booo or think their pick is great when they barely know the player being selected. It's hard enough to go to a game and bite your lip at stupid fans.
    They say that love is more important than money, but have you ever tried to pay your bills with a hug?
