    Not that I want to ruin everyone's fun in this forum, but I would say they should consider pushing to end the NFL draft.

    It would seem that the wealthiest team with the most fans and with the most lucrative single position in the league (qb of the DC) would be better off in a system where players sign with whomever they want to. We would essentially be the Manchester United of the NFL.

    The draft is a way for the Charlotte Bobcats and the Jacksonville Jackalopes, or whatever they are, to unfairly coast on the big teams without putting in the value.

    My dream scenario this past offseason was that the Cowboys should have signed Andrew Luck and forced the league to go to court to send him to Indianapolis. Given that the draft was on pretty dodgy legal footing during the labor negotiations, I'm not sure that a court would do it. Not that I'm a lawyer or anything.

    I don't want to wake up Paul Allen. Keep it the way it is.

    Sure let's turn the NFL into MLB where the only teams that have a chance to win are the ones with the most money.

    I love the draft and would not like to see it go away, but I'll play a little devils advocate here...

    Isn't this pretty much how the NCAA is run? I know teams are still limited to a degree by the number of scholarships they can offer, but year after year we see powerhouses like Alabama, LSU & USC load up on top recruits. Why couldn't it work in the NFL? Teams would still have a salary cap to deal with so its not like any team could sign every player they wanted to.

    I'd rather win cause we where a good team then because we're a rich team

    This is why i never understood how someone could be a Lakers or Yankees fan the NBA and MLB bend over backwards to keep those teams at the top, where's the fun in that? It's like going to Vegas to stand by the roulette table and cheer for the house

    Sure, let's call it ARFL - the Ayn Rand Football League.

    I would feel horrible for Browns fans. I couldn't do it.
