    it's pretty selfish of the PA to tell these kids not to, if they did.

    I don't think it's selfish at all, that's the reason they formed a union.

    That being said, right now there is no union, so they shouldn't be calling anyone up and telling them what to do.

    If there WAS still a union, then I'd say he should do what the union says and not attend.

    he will make himself a marked man unecessarliy....and there won't be one owner, GM, scout, coach etc...to protect him once on the field. Not a way to make friends.

    Plus you know the reason he wants to go is because he's so in love with himself. He probably honestly believes he'll be the #1 overall pick and he wants that photo with the jersey.

    What? A kid wants to actually participate in the biggest moment of their young life? What's wrong with today's youth?

    But he's not a union member until he signs his contract.

    Players hold out. Criticize their team, the club, the coaches during contract negotiations. Players blast teams when they're trade, etc.

    It's business.

    The players will get over it just as they get over it.

    Same with Von Miller.

    There's no union so it doesn't even matter.

    It doesn't matter, anyway. The Union should have the sense to stay out of this part of the process. It's not their concern what happens to college players on draft day.

    Of course they shouldn't stay out of the process, they represent the players and everyone invited IS going to be in the union, at some point.

    They can CHOOSE to stay out of it, but they have an interest in it as much as anyone else.

    Then again, I hate what draft day(s) has become, so maybe I'm biased.

    The NFLPA now says boycotting the Draft is "just a recommendation." (wink, wink)

    NFLPA says draft boycott is just a recommendation

    3/15/2011 6:22:03 AM

    On Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported the NFLPA is putting into place a plan that would prevent each top college prospect from attending next month's draft in New York, according to multiple league sources.

    Later Monday, a source said the edict is a recommendation, not an explicit order not to attend the draft. The source said the union plans to give the prospects the "same experience down the street."

    For one, we are hoping the draft prospects take to heart this recommendation the same way they might have taken the NFLPA's agreement on a rookie salary cap which would have cost most of these top prospects a significant amount of money.
