    The contrast between what JD has done when drafting a QB in the top 3 and what Maccagnan did is night and day.   I’m not sure a GM in this league had a worse 5 year run than Maccagnan did, it truly was an embarrassment.  

    And just our luck that it came right after Idzik's run as GM.

    Wait a minute 🤔. That's not luck!

  2. A lot of people panned it but I love what Douglas did in getting Alija Vera-Tucker.  Throwing out absolute draft pick value for a top player at a position you absolutely need.  Because in five or six years you won't even think about a two third round pick overpay.  Maybe it's not the best move.  But I think it is.

    sh*t, I’m a millennial and I’m stuck between two worlds. Gen Z is batsh*t.

    John Waters said something once that bears repeating.  It's not your parents or grandparents you should end up hating.  It's who's ever uncool.  And that's usually your older brother or sisters.  Because their albums and culture is whatever your rebelling against.  And I think that transfers to sports.  Because suddenly, idols like Lebron or Tom Shady are these assailable figures for criticism.  I mean. Tiger Woods and Kobe have gotten that for better on a decade now.  Obviously.  They are affixed demigods now and other generations have moved on.  But it is hilarious that we don't look at arguments... just generational scorn.

    Rodgers and Wilson both wanna move to different cities and are blaming not being supported or disrespected.  What else would explain wanting to leave solid organizations for the Raiders or Bears?  

    Wilson probably knew his lot was caste in stone when Paul Allen died.  That was the only person with the power and objectivity to tell Carroll to knock it off or negate some of his power.  Same thing Damian Lillard is slowly finding out the Trail Blazers.  When an owner as powerful as Allen dies.  It just makes the people in the front office and chief operating officer unimpeachable.   "Player empowerment' or whatever we want to call it.  It's the flavor of the month is sports right now.   Rodgers probably has some legitimate complaints too.  But he bitches so much.... I am growing tired of hearing of them.  And it's not like he can go to the owner.  Ha ha.

    Fantastic story.  I saw Rodney a bunch of times at his club in NYC.  Was very personable.  Would come over and shoot the breeze with folks at the gig.  ALWAYS hysterically funny with impeccable timing.

    Love your avatar.  Knew an old hippie chick who was obsessed with Marc Bolan.  So I had to here everything he did!  Even the pre-Mickey Finn era T-Rex.  Man.  Mr. Bolan's lyrics were a rag bag of pretty much everything till he discovered Chuck Berry Riffs and Diamond Star Halos.

    Friend of mine who used to work in Vegas told me a good story about Rodney.  Apparently, he loved to light huge joints wherever he was, airports, restaurants... even while in fair view of cops.  Someone in his retinue asked him (while my friend was working for him in one of the clubs) "Rodney, why do you think you can light up in front of the cops?" 

    Rodney took a long puff and said, "Because nobody is going to arrest Rodney f-ing Dangerfield!"

    Great story.  Hunh.  Wish the guy had told me more.
