    The NFL's response to too many under classmen signing up for the draft?

    http://q.usatoday.com/2014/07/19/nfl...roger-goodell/


    Ridiculous.

    It seems to me beyond stupid:

    1) Only 1st and 2nd round draft grades will be given - everyone else - giving unkown.
    2) Only 5 grades per team (except some teams, of course).

    This has lawsuit written all over it.

    I think it will be free season for sleazebag agents to be telling any kid - that will be 3rd rounders. What if you were a 6th guy from your team and you wanted to know what your profile is - what makes you different from the other 5?

    The underclassman last year numbered in the 90s almost doubled from when this system started. I think the market place should be trusted a little more here. When enough examples pile up of guys who left early and ended up homeless or living with their parents - less guys will do this early. They don't have to make the system stupider - just to make it look like they are taking action.

    I love the National Football League, and have loved it all my life - I will continue to love it, however, Goodell is the worst thing to happen to the league since I have been following the games

    Is it me, or is that jersey Manziel is holding up about 100x too big looking for him ?

    ... and I never remember seeing so many photos with other commissioners posing with the players

    Trust the market place ? You ? Really ? Who got a hold of Mingo's KFFL account info ? Who is this impostor ?
