    I figure this is a good place for folks who don't give a crap about these two teams or the Super Bowl.
    (I don't.)

    Darnell Dockett was prepared to ask for a trade if Ken Whisenhunt were retained.
    There have been a few stories now on how unpopular this coach was becoming with his players.

    Then, there's that.

    Hey, at least he's honest.

    Dockett is a guy who can be really funny but has no idea why a filter is important.

    Isn't that sweet. Jeff Saturday, who made the NFC Pro Bowl team, played one down for the AFC so he could snap the ball to Peyton Manning one last time. Saturday had already announced he was retiring after the game.

    Nice moment or just more proof that the Pro Bowl is a joke?

    Poll of 300 NFL players shows that 61 percent disapprove of Roger Goodell. Not exactly surprising.

    What percentage of players disapprove of DeMaurice Smith who negotiated the powers that Goodell abuses?

    Well, Upshaw was the one who completely fucked the players over on a regular basis.

    True, but Smith was the one in charge for the current deal. Of course, it was really a matter of Goodell taking the power for himself before that negotiation, then the players' union failed to properly address it in the new labor agreement.

    I understand the criticism of Smith, but it's nothing compared to what Upshaw agreed to on a regular basis. That guy was completely in the owner's pockets, but players were scared to death to criticize him publicly.

    The rep on the team I covered, who was as smart and level-headed as you would typically find among NFL players, hated Upshaw and swore that the bulk of the player reps agreed with him.

    NFL owners have it so much better than the other pro sports that it's not even funny.

    Wonders how that stacks up with employees in other industries?

    This is interesting. Thought he started living up to the potential in South Florida. I guess the team figures it got as much as they were going to get out of him, but it has no other options at RB. Mike Mayock favorite Daniel Thomas has been awful/injury prone.
