    After watching the remake of The Longest Yard, I was wondering if it would be possible to make a real Longest Yard team.

    To make it easier to recruit players, we'll include any player who was recently released from prison in the last few years, and just assume that they could still cut it on the field up until the age of 50.

    Remember, it's only players who have served hard time and can be transferred to the prison team. :D No one-night jail sleepers.

    A few players to start the roster:

    QB Todd Marinovich (not sure if he's been locked up or just jailed a few nights)

    RB Jamal Lewis, Bam Morris, Lawrence Phillips (has he served time yet?)

    WR Rae Carruth

    OL Nate Newton, Barrett Robbins (if he doesn't get off)

    DL

    LB

    DB

    I would think that you'd have to include Jim Brown and Mercury Morris at RB.

    Lawrence Taylor at LB and Leonard Little at DE.

    I am ashamed of you... ASHAMED that you mentioned Rae Carruth in lieu of Bob Hayes...

    Hayes doesn't even get respect from the prison crowd... :rolleyes:

    D-Line should include Mark Gastineau

    O.J Simpson. He never went to prison, but he was in Jail for over a year.

    Who's the former Raiders kicker that just got busted for doing a drive by?

    I was thinking Goodrich, but then figured he probably would not make the team :p:

    The starting QB definitely needs to be Art Schlister. Hands down.

    Like I said, no guys over 50, or in Hayes' case, no dead guys. I'm trying to make a real team here. :D

    Oh well, I can see it has already fallen apart. We're already getting the all-time prison team with folks like Jim Brown and Bob Hayes. Let the all-time team commence. :cool:

    By the way, since we're doing all-time team now and now just players who might actually be able to still play, I draft Hollywood Henderson on the team now! :cool:

    Don't remember if it was just one night in jail....but Moss was arrested and jailed not just with the Vikings but also while in High School.

    Not exactly prison listings here but this used to be a fun site to check out about people in sports (on all levels) getting in trouble.
